President Joe Biden will travel to Ohio Wednesday as his administration prepares to lift certain economic tariffs against China.
The president is expected to journey to Cleveland to talk about the growth of the economy and speak at the Iron Workers Local 17 Training Center.

Congressman Tim Ryan, D-OH, is running in Ohio for Senate. He lambasted President Obama in June for not even considering it.

Ryan, however, previously opposed Trump’s tariffs on China. In 2018, he criticized Trump for inflicting “maximum damage on the U.S. economy for minimal gain.”
White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said Tuesday no decision had been made on tariffs, but criticized former President Donald Trump for imposing tariffs on China “in such a haphazard way, in a non-strategic way.”
” We are looking for the best approach, she stated.

” Taking away these Tariffs would signal the United States’ weakness, ineffectiveness, and continuing to do business as usual,” he said.
