(Lehigh Valley, PA) Congressman Charlie Dent issued the following statement after the Administration announced massive tariffs on steel and aluminum imports: “I have serious reservations with the actions announced by President Trump today. While I acknowledge unfair trade practices by some foreign countries in the targeted industries, it seems this order is too broad and will likely cost more American manufacturing jobs than the number of jobs the Administration is attempting to protect.
"This is a horrifying tragedy for the entire nation. We pray for and grieve with the families and friends of the victims, innocent children and school personnel carrying out a school day just like any other day. I would like to offer my gratitude for the law enforcement officers and emergency personnel who responded promptly and aggressively. Their actions led to the capture of the suspect and undoubtedly saved many lives.
Representative Charlie Dent (PA-15) hailed the passage of a bipartisan budget agreement by the House today. “This bipartisan agreement provides for greater stability and certainty in the government funding process for this year and next year. It gets us off of the treadmill of short-term spending bills that have consistently resulted in unpredictability for our military, for American workers and companies, and for those Americans who have suffered harm as a result of the numerous natural disasters over the course of the last year,” said the Congressman.
ALLENTOWN, PA - "As I have publicly stated on several occasions, it is a mistake to release this memo. No Members of Congress--nor their staff--should risk divulging sensitive sources or methods of Intelligence for partisan gain. This sets a dangerous precedent that may have far reaching implications."
