600 US companies urge President Trump to resolve China trade dispute

More than 150 trade groups representing agriculture, manufacturing, retail and tech industries supports the national campaign against tariffs.

The American international consultancy the Trade Partnership reported that additional 25% tariffs on $300 billion in imports, on top of those already levied, would wipe out more than 2 million U.S. jobs.

They would also add more than $2,000 in costs for the average American family of four and reduce the value of U.S. Gross Domestic Product (GDP) by 1%.
