Trump keeps promise as Samsung & LG trade cheaters get punished

Jan. 22, 2018, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement praising President Donald Trump for instituting tariffs on Samsung and LG washing machines after they were being dumped into U.S. markets:

“Samsung and LG had a plan.  Dump washing machines onto the U.S. market in contravention of the South Korea-US free trade agreement, to grow market share.  They were caught three times by U.S. trade authorities and this time, under President Trump, they got punished. Free trade agreements only work when they are respected and President Trump showed that he will carry a big stick if a company tries to cheat on trade deals.”
