WASHINGTON -- U.S. President Joe Biden could pursue a "temporary reduction" of Trump-era tariffs on China in response to supply chain disruptions and rising inflation, a congressman involved in shaping legislation related to the Asia-Pacific told Nikkei. 

"Given the impact that consumers in the United States are feeling for goods and services, anything that we can do to address supply chains -- getting goods on shelves for the American consumer and lowering the price -- is a good thing," Rep. Ami Bera said.
