Rep. Castro: tariffs will “tank our economy”


Texas rep. Joaquin Castro (D) is slamming President Trump because of the President’s threat to impose tariffs on imported goods from Mexico if the country doesn’t curb the number of illegal immigrants crossing the border.

This comes after Austan Goolsbee (D), who formerly served as the chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers and as a member of President Obama’s cabinet, slammed the idea of tariffs because “it destroys more jobs than it creates.”

Castro called the President’s move economic sanctions that will only “tank our economy.”
