WASHINGTON – U.S. Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) today released the following statement as the administration considers imposing auto tariffs on vehicle imports:

“The administration’s attempts to use mechanisms designed to ensure national security in an effort to enact protectionist policies should be deeply troubling to millions of Americans who depend on trade for their livelihood. When the steel and aluminum tariffs proceeded, many of us warned that other international partners would react similarly and use national security concerns to mask protectionism.  Little did we know that it would be the U.S. who went back to the same ill-advised well so quickly. I strongly urge the President and this administration to consider the threat to the American economy posed by these policies.”
