Flake Calls for 2020 Trump Primary Challenger

Sen. Ron Johnson backs bill to undo tariffs Flake Calls for 2020 Trump Primary Challenger

House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady, a Texas Republican, praised Trump for exempting Mexico and Canada from tariffs - for now - and said the White House should "go further to narrow these tariffs so they hit the intended target -- and not us workers, businesses, and families".

His decision to levy stiff new tariffs on aluminum and steel imports puts him at odds with most of the Republican Party, prominent business groups and even some of his own advisers, who warn that the decision could backfire and slow economic growth in a midterm election year.

Congress now has several options: it could pass a law taking back from Trump powers regarding commercial matters, which have been doled out to the White House progressively since the 1930s for purposes of efficiency.

Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona holds those views and he says he is aware that such a campaign "would be a tough go" because the GOP "is the Trump party right now". Johnson called the move a "very risky action" that could spark a trade war and have "very serious unintended consequences". "And then to have a president in a position to say, 'All right".

A slew of Republicans, including House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, expressed concern about the tariffs in the run up to the announcement.

"This isn't just bad for farmers and ranchers in Nebraska who need to buy a new tractor, it's also bad for the moms and dads who will lose their manufacturing jobs because fewer people can buy a more expensive product", he said.

Ryan has been reluctant to criticize Trump, even when the two disagree.

The latest version of this law, adopted under Barack Obama in 2015, will expire in July of this year unless Trump requests an extension until 2021.

Baldwin, who like Walker is up for re-election in November, said the best way to support Wisconsin workers is to enact strong buy-American standards like the ones she's supported, as well as renegotiate a better deal on the North American Free Trade Agreement. Exports account for more than half of the local economy in Columbus, Indiana, and 25 percent of Fond du Lac, Wisconsin's economy. "So this hits home for all of us".
