Joe Biden’s administration split on whether to remove China tariffs

Craig Allen, president of the US-China Business Council, said Biden’s relationship with the unions suggested any move on tariffs would be limited. Under Tai, USTR is also more aligned with unions than previous administrations. “Biden said he wanted to be the most labor-friendly president in history. There will be a cost in terms of inflation,” said Allen. “It’s most likely inertia will dominate. And if anything is done, it will be at the margins and half hearted.”
