Walker says Trump tariffs are “bad for everyone,” while Vukmir and Nicholson embrace Trump’s tariffs
MADISON — Gov. Scott Walker has labeled President Donald Trump’s tariffs “bad for everyone,” separating himself from Republican U.S. Senate candidates Leah Vukmir and Kevin Nicholson, each of whom have so far enthusiastically welcomed Trump’s trade agenda.
Vukmir and Nicholson have had nothing but effusive praise for Trump’s tariffs — and Nicholson has even called them necessary pain for Wisconsin’s agricultural community:
- Leah Vukmir: “President Trump got elected in large part because people know he is a negotiator. The Art of the Deal. He wrote the book. I am willing to give him the opportunity to create fairer deals for our country.”
- Kevin Nicholson: “What the President is doing, and I applaud him for, is he is saying let’s go back and re-visit those trade deals and get rid of those tariffs.”
- Previously, Nicholson has welcomed Trump-proposed tariffs as necessary “risk” and economic pain for Wisconsin farmers.
