U.S. Sen. Johnny Isakson said he thinks President Donald Trump’s tariffs might work out after all.
Isakson was vocally against the steel and aluminum tariffs when they were announced. He now says it appears the move may have helped, because other countries seem more willing to discuss trade deals, like the Trans-Pacific Partnership.
“I think the president’s really put himself in a position to see what he can put on the table for us to get in return for coming back into the deal. And that’s not a bad strategy if it works,” Isakson said following a meeting Wednesday with the Atlanta Council on International Relations.
