Johnson Will Back Bill Nullifying Trump's Steel, Aluminum Tariffs

Paul Ryan The Associated Press
Freda Brock | 12 March, 2018, 07:17

Flake, who has taken to the Senate floor as recently as January to draw attention to the danger that Trump's comments could cause, said he believes it is the Republican Party's job to take a stand. Trade is now the issue that has driven the most distance between Ryan and the president he reluctantly endorsed during the campaign.

The European Union has already said it is prepared to retaliate the tariffs, despite it having a 70 percent tariff on steel against specifically China for the same reasons Pres. Trump is doing so now.

"We are writing to express deep concern about the prospect of broad, global tariffs on aluminum and steel imports", they wrote to the president in the letter first drafted earlier this week.

Trump may have a point that the trade deficit hurts US manufacturing, especially the steel and aluminum industries.

Yet those arguments had little resonance with Trump during the fiery battle over tariffs that has played out in the West Wing in recent days.

Manchin said it was past time to defend the country's economic interests, and Trump made the decision with workers and national security in mind. The president said USA political leaders preceding him had allowed the decline of manufacturing in the nation, and cited a protectionist predecessor, President William McKinley, in defense of the tariffs. He has urged Republican lawmakers to stay focused on reminding voters about the tax cuts rather than White House policy surprises and scandals.

Trump fantasized about running against television personality and philanthropist Oprah Winfrey in the 2020 presidential election, floated the idea of reaching peace with North Korea and promoted his new tariffs.

Tonight, Carragher, 40, posted on Twitter: "Totally out of order and I've apologised personally to all the family this evening". When the teasing continued Carragher spat - hitting the teenager who was in the passenger seat and leaving her in tears.

All 435 seats in the House will be on ballots. Flake aggressively pushed for such legislation to block Trump from imposing the tariffs.

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".

There are a handful of Democrats who are on board with Trump's move, though. Sen.

"This was a big payment, $130,000 payment, to keep information away from voters that voters probably would have cared about when they were walking into the election booth back in November of 2016", Ryan said.

But lawmakers fear a trade war could wipe away economic gains and leave them on shaky ground with voters in November.

"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.

In Wisconsin, which went for Trump by the narrowest of margins, Republican Gov. Scott Walker has warned that tariffs could hurt the state's canning and beer industries. Sen.
