Boas Explores Issue Of Tariffs On Sugar From Mexico

We are checking in with the Editorial Board of The Arizona Republic for a regular segment where KJZZ dicusses big issues facing the state and the region — featured in the newspaper’s Viewpoints section.

President Trump is moving to apply tariffs to steel and aluminum imports, with exceptions possibly being carved out for Mexico, Canada and Australia. 

However, it’s part of the President's pattern of changing how the United States has handled international trade deals.

In a recent editorial, The Arizona Republic explored the issue of tariffs with the focus on sugar from Mexico.

Editorial Director Phil Boas is here for his weekly appearance to talk about it.

Steve Goldstein was a host at KJZZ from 1997 to 2022.
