Bipartisan Group of Senators Wants U.S. to Drop Tariffs on Food, Wine, and Booze from Europe | Food & Wine
There is bipartisan support for the removal of the tariffs. However, the response is indecisive.
The letter was signed by a bipartisan group of seven Republicans and six Democrats, including Corey Booker (D-NJ), Susan Collins (R-ME), Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), and Pat Toomey (R-PA).
'[A]t a time when the hospitality industry is fighting for its life, any additional tariffs will have catastrophic and compounding effects for years to come—a knockout blow for many,' Michelle Korsmo, the president of the Wine and Spirits Wholesalers of America, told the Washington Post.
'For every European winery that this attempts to negatively influence, it's a negative for free American companies that bear the burden of this tariff,' said Harry Root, the owner of Grassroots Wine, said. 'The 100 percent tariffs that they're proposing are effectively prohibition from any wines in the E.U. That means we're going to have Italian restaurants with no Italian wine, French restaurants with no French wine and Spanish restaurants with no Spanish wine.'" Food & Wine

All the president is, is a glorified public relations man who spends his time flattering, kissing, and kicking people to get them to do what they are supposed to do anyway.
