Numerous reports on Tuesday hinted at a huge meeting taking place this week in Washington. According to those reports, a group of eight executives from some of the largest retailers—including Best Buy, Target, AutoZone, Gap, and more—are set to meet with members of Congress to plead their case that President Trump’s controversial tax on imports would be nothing short of bad business.
According to Fortune, this is the first time that a group of well-known retail CEOs will head to Washington as a group in an attempt to sway Congress on an issue. Specifically, they will meet with House Ways and Means Committee chairman Kevin Brady and members of the Senate, to express their concerns over the import tax bill. In their pitch, the retail bosses plan to inform Congress how the proposed import tax will raise consumer prices and hurt their businesses.
Though the group is expected to meet with members of Congress, it hasn’t been confirmed whether they will get the opportunity to meet with President Trump whilst in his backyard.
