Trump Tariffs Could Cost GA $750 Million, Hurt 1.3 Million Georgians

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce released a state-by-state analysis of the impact on President Trump’s tariffs and the results are bad everywhere in Georgia.

According to the Chamber (a one-pager is below), exports from Georgia to Canada, Mexico, the European Union and China worth worth $749,849,268 could be adversely impacted. The Chamber also says 1,283,800 jobs in Georgia are supported by global trade.

Georgia’s hardest-hit products are:

  1. Mowers for lawns, parks etc. ($35 million exported annually to Canada)
  2. Insecticides ($35 million exported annually to Canada)
  3. Prepared of preserved chicken meat or offal(!) ($32 million exported annually to Canada)

So, in short, the answer is: blame Canada!
