U.S. business group says Trump China tariffs cost $1.4 billion/month

A coalition of U.S. business groups fighting President Donald Trump’s trade tariffs has launched an advertisement aimed at telling voters ahead of the midterm elections that the measures are costing American businesses and consumers $1.4 billion a month.

The group of more than 60 U.S. industry groups launched a coalition in September to take their fight public against billions of dollars worth of tariffs Trump has implemented in an effort to win concessions or in the belief they will create U.S. jobs.
