President Trump’s top trade negotiator Robert Lighthizer was in the Congressional hot seat today facing tough questions from lawmakers on trade and tariffs. Rick Helfenbein, American Apparel and Footwear Association CEO, joins Yahoo Finance’s Julie Hyman and Adam Shapiro, Cornell Capital’s Ann Berry and Cumberland Advisors Chairman David Kotok to talk about the latest trade headlines.

“The tariff wars create winners and losers. You just hear from losers. They’re worried. With good reason. There are no tariffs on the healthcare sector. You can’t name them. It’s 18% of our GDP. In our portfolios, we’re overweight in the healthcare sector. Why? Do we want this tariff war? No. But as a portfolio manager and investment advisor, you have to pick and choose. And tariff wars by definition pick winners and losers and they have unintended consequences. And we’re just seeing the unintended consequences revealed now,” says David R. Kotok.
