With volumes down by almost 30 percent at some of the six largest West Coast ports, the ports of Long Beach, Los Angeles, Oakland, Portland, Seattle and Tacoma have sent a joint letter to President Donald Trump, urging him to pursue fair and mutually beneficial trade agreements. The organizations have shared concerns that the long-term impacts of the escalating trade conflict between China and the United States will create irredeemable economic harm to employers, workers, residents and international partnerships along the West Coast and throughout the entire country. The letter also highlights the latest impacts related to back-and-forth tariffs between the United States and China.
