If the tariff policies of President Donald Trump are about protecting American jobs and promoting American businesses and products, then the tariff proposal by the administration that was recently approved by the World Trade Organization on the European Union provides the Federal Government the perfect opportunity to promote that through negotiations and agreement.
In a statement to BamaPolitics.com, Airbus stated that it is 'hard' for them to consider expanding future investment in their Mobile, AL facilities with the uncertainty of tariffs and trade tensions looming.
As a part of the tariff plan, the Trump Administration is proposing to include tariffs on aerospace components imported from European countries like France, Germany, and the United Kingdom, components that Airbus imports through the Alabama State Docks in Mobile to assemble planes at their growing and robust Final Assembly Line campus at Brookley Aeroplex.
That is an American business, those are American jobs and that makes Airbus as American as apple pie. Airbus' production facilities across the globe are full and Airbus is looking for expanding global production rates to reduce the backlog of over 6,200 of A320 and A220 families of planes.
There seems to be a path forward for all sides to come to an agreement and both sides can claim some sort of victory...
