Friedenberg Stands up for Farmers in Trump’s Tariff War


(WBRE/WYOU-TV) LEMONT, PA, May 13th — Marc Friedenberg, Congressional Candidate in the 12th district, released the following statement regarding President Trump’s upcoming visit to Montoursville and China’s retaliatory tariffs:

“President Trump’s economic policies are failing farmers and American consumers, like all of us in PA-12. Family farms are getting crushed with higher equipment prices and lower demand for their products. 

“As I have traveled around the district, I hear about pocketbook issues more than any other: the need for good paying jobs, the high cost of health care, better education for children and protecting Social Security. The fact that Fred Keller is appearing with President Trump in support of President Trump’s Tariff War, only signals how out of touch he is with the residents of the district and his inability to challenge his party’s leadership.”
