Casey Statement On President Trump’s Trade Executive Orders

Washington, D.C. - U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) released a statement on President Trump's executive orders concerning trade:

“I commend President Trump for taking these preliminary steps on trade, but it’s critical that he follow through on his promises by cracking down on countries that cheat and renegotiating bad trade deals. I have consistently opposed bad trade deals and called for action against countries, like China, that cheat on trade, yet congressional Republicans have consistently stood in the way- pushing trade deals that stack the deck against workers while making billions for big corporations. President Trump must stand up to far right Congressional Republicans and follow through on his promises on trade. For too long, workers in Pennsylvania have seen their jobs lost and the growth of their incomes stagnate due to unfair trade. It’s time for action.”
