Sen. Tom Cotton: Trump’s Tariffs Will Cause “Sacrifices” But It’s Nothing Compared To Soldiers Killed In Battle

CBS News reports:

As the U.S. and China inch closer to an all-out trade war, Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton says that the sacrifice Americans will pay for President Trump’s tariffs are “minimal” compared to those serving overseas.

President Trump has maintained that Americans would not be fronting the brunt of the cost for tariffs, but many, including the president’s own economic adviser, say they will.

“There will be some sacrifices on the part of Americans, I grant you that, but I also would say that sacrifice is pretty minimal compared to the sacrifices that our soldiers make overseas that are fallen heroes that are laid to rest in Arlington make,” Cotton told “CBS This Morning” when asked about the impact of tariffs on farmers in his own state of Arkansas.
