US businesses roll out campaign against teriff warU.S. businesses have united in a campaign to be unveiled on Wednesday against President Donald Trump's tariff efforts.

A variety of industries are supporting the multimillion-dollar "Tariffs Hurt the Heartland" campaign by Americans for Free Trade, aiming to highlight the negative consequences of tariffs in advertising, town hall-style meetings beginning next week and reaching out to member of Congress.

Nearly 450 companies or industries hired trade issue lobbyists in 2017, up from about 100 when Trump took office in 2017. The anti-tariff movement stretches across industries and includes farming, technology and toy businesses.

Some businesses are concerned about rising costs of materials, including raw materials imported from other countries. Others, notably farmers, have expressed concern about retaliatory tariffs imposed on U.S. exports by China and the European Union.
