WASHINGTON – U.S. Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) today released the following statement in response to the just-announced White House plan to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum:

“These so-called ‘flexible tariffs’ are a marriage of two lethal poisons to economic growth – protectionism and uncertainty. Trade wars are not won, they are only lost. Congress cannot be complicit as the administration courts economic disaster. I will immediately draft and introduce legislation to nullify these tariffs, and I urge my colleagues to pass it before this exercise in protectionism inflicts any more damage on the economy.”
