SANTA FE – Governors from both political parties expressed unease Thursday about the state-level impact of trade wars, as President Donald Trump’s foreign policy cast a long shadow over the start of a three-day gathering that has brought more than 1,500 people to New Mexico’s capital city.
Business executives and government officials from China and Japan also addressed trade issues – including tariffs imposed by Trump – during the opening day of the National Governors Association’s summer meeting.
Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, a Democrat, said the instability and uncertainty brought about by the tariffs is bad for business.
