U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) released the following statement after the administration’s scheduled tariffs on $34 billion of Chinese goods went into effect on July 6:

“Kansans agree with the president that steps ought to be taken to address China's misconduct. As I've repeatedly indicated to the president and administration officials, I remain unconvinced that tariffs are the best tool ‎to change China's bad behavior – tariffs not only hurt our farmers, ranchers and airplane manufacturers, but they also harm every American consumer. We should be working with our allies to isolate China rather than escalate a trade war."
