Trump finally did the one thing that will drive powerful Republicans away

Senators to introduce bill reining in Trump's tariff authority Greg Nash

"I will not support any efforts that weaken his position".

McConnell announced his decision a month after Senate conservatives and the White House said he should keep the Senate in session longer, either by working longer weeks or shortening the summer recess. As we've often argued, it's well past time for Congress to get back to regular order and pass actual agency appropriations bills on time - no more shutdown showdowns, no more last-minute continuing resolutions, no more omnibuses, cromnibuses, minibuses, or megabuses, please! Instead, he said, he favors trying to persuade the president change course.

Democrats have invoked cloture on Trump's appointees, demanding 30 hours of debate rather than deferring to the president's nominees. Sen. "... I'm a United States senator and, you know, I have responsibilities".

Hochul, a former congresswoman from western NY, said she's not ruffled by the opposing party's actions, and is not going to engage in "schoolyard politics". It is unclear how a lot Democratic assist exists and there is at present no dedication their Home counterparts would comply with go well with.

"He's obviously not pleased with this effort", said Corker, who is retiring at the end of this year and has clashed with the president in the past.

The House of Representatives is still scheduled to be away the entire month of August. Some critics of his recent trade moves also were there, including farm-state Senators Chuck Grassley of Iowa and Ron Johnson of Wisconsin.

One of the Senator's not sponsoring the bill is Senator John DeFrancisco, the Deputy Republican Leader.

Until now, though, the Republican Party stood by its president.

Al-Quds is the historic Arabic name for Jerusalem, and Iran says the day is an occasion to express support for the Palestinians. It is unclear whether Argentina will play another warm-up, or if it will arrive to Moscow ahead of schedule.

Corker won't say how many people officially back his plan, but many Republicans say they are anxious about the tariffs Trump announced.

"The US business and agriculture community is profoundly concerned about how newly imposed tariffs - and the inevitable foreign retaliation arriving in the next few weeks - will lead to lost American jobs", Bradley said in a statement.

Koch spokesman Philip Ellender said it's important that Congress reassert its constitutional authority on trade decisions, including tariffs, and that the company opposes policies that impose trade barriers that will ultimately hurt individuals, businesses and communities. "This modest proposal to clarify congressional prerogatives is welcome and long overdue".

President Donald Trump is defending his tough trade negotiations with China, Canada and Mexico, saying that US farmers have been treated "unfairly".

Corker's legislation would require the president to submit to Congress any proposal to adjust imports in the interest of national security. The requirement would apply to all such actions moving forward as well as those taken in the past two years.

Republican Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee, alongside seven other senators, proposed the plan on Wednesday, which would require tariffs proposed as a national security imperative under Section 232 of the Trade Expansion Act to be subject to congressional approval.

Democratic co-sponsors include Mark Warner of Virginia, Brian Schatz of Hawaii and Chris Van Hollen of Maryland.

On Wednesday morning, Trump called Sen.
