  • Americans for Free Trade, a coalition of more than 150 industry associations, has urged the Trump administration to remove all additional tariffs, as the China-US phase-one economic and trade agreement takes effect on Friday.
  • Overall, Americans have paid an additional $50 billion in tariffs since February 2018 through December 2019.
  • Among those with a positive view, the majority believes the agreement stabilizes their bilateral relationship and prevents imminent imposition of new tariffs.
