The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is launching a campaign to push back against President Trump’s trade policies, according to a Reuters report.

The campaign launching Monday will focus on how Trump’s tariffs targeting goods from China, Canada, Mexico and the European Union could affect each U.S. state, Reuters reported.

For example, South Carolina could see $3 billion worth of exports targeted by retaliatory tariffs, the Chamber told Reuters.

The Chamber has regularly been an ally to Republican presidents, lobbying for lawmakers to back the GOP tax law last year and set to tout the tax cuts in ads leading into the 2018 midterms.
