Press Release

WASHINGTON–U.S. Representative Jeb Hensarling (TX-5) released the following statement in response to President Trump’s meeting with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker regarding trade:

“While I have been concerned about the impact of the administration’s trade policy, I was excited when I saw the President’s recent tweet calling on the U.S. and EU to ‘drop all tariffs, barriers and subsidies.’ I was even more excited to see the news that the President was able to reach an agreement with the EU to actually expand trade and ‘hold off on other tariffs.’ I look forward to reviewing the details, but I applaud the President for his negotiation.”
