More Tariffs Announced – Where Is Cramer?

(BISMARCK, ND) – Over the weekend, the administration announced tariffs on another $200 billion of Chinese imports, which are set to take effect “weeks before [the] November elections” and “are all but certain to be met immediately by Chinese retaliation against U.S. exporters, especially against farmers.” This announcement follows the president’s threat of additional tariffs on $257 billion on Chinese goods that were announced en route to Kevin Cramer’s fundraiser in Fargo less than two weeks ago.

Reminder: It’s been more than 16 days since Cramer missed his self-imposed deadline for when he’d become “concerned” enough to stand with North Dakota against the trade war – and bizarrely, Cramer is still maintaining that “the trade issues [are] to the benefit of North Dakotans and North Dakota farmers.” Cramer cowered when had the opportunity to stand with North Dakota against the trade war, instead choosing to put his political capital and financial self-interest ahead of the folks he’s supposed to represent.
