Automotive News quoted Ashley Craig on July 1, 2018, in an article about the automotive industry uniting in opposing the proposed White House tariffs on autos and auto parts.
For months, automotive interests have been coordinating advocacy and education efforts to show administration officials how trade restrictions would damage a globally integrated industry. According to the article, it's becoming increasingly clear to automotive interests that traditional lobbying efforts against tariffs on autos and auto parts are ineffective with President Donald Trump.
Mr. Craig said that the hope is for Trump to reverse the course on auto tariffs.
Mr. Craig added, "The only thing I could see happen is you start to see workers complaining, protesting because the trade policies backfired and they no longer have jobs."
