Gov. Walker says tariffs 'bad for everyone'

MANITOWOC COUNTY (WKOW) -- It's written on Wisconsin license plates -- we're America's Dairyland, and June is dairy month.

Governor Scott Walker celebrated the industry Sunday in Northern Wisconsin, serving breakfast and offering support for the state's farmers.

Other countries are now raising the price of dairy and other products made in Wisconsin, in response to President Trump's decision to impose duties on imports.

The governor said he thinks the so-called "trade war" is bad for everyone.

"Our farmers, as well as our manufacturers in other businesses can compete with anyone in the world if we are on a level playing field," Walker said. "I think the right answer is just no tariffs for anyone."

Last week the governor announced the creation of "Wisconsin Dairy Task Force 2.0" to help the struggling industry. It allows farmers and industry leaders to come together to make recommendations to maintain the dairy industry in our state.
