U.S. imports of "intermediate goods" from China, such as motors, pumps, and semiconductors, have seen price increases, harming U.S. producers. "When the price of these inputs go up, U.S. businesses find it harder to compete against non-U.S. competitors, even in the U.S. market," Mary Lovely told PolitiFact. She was also interviewed by Marketplace on the impact of the trade war on U.S. jobs.
