Arizona senators agree that tariffs are bad

PHOENIX (AP) - Arizona Sens. Kyrsten Sinema and Martha McSally agree that China's trade actions are a big problem but that tariffs put in place by the Trump Administration are the wrong way to address the two nations' issues and are hurting Arizona businesses.

Sinema and McSally spoke separately Friday to a crowd at an Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry event.

Sinema is a Democrat and called on leaders of both parties to repeal tariffs and end what she called a manufactured trade war. McSally is a Republican and said the U.S. needs to work with its allies to boost pressure on China but said she too opposes tariffs.

Sinema beat McSally in November to win the seat vacated by Jeff Flake. McSally was appointed to the late Sen. John McCain's seat following the resignation of placeholder Jon Kyl.
