Republican senator puts forward bill to quash Trump's new tariffs

Republican senator puts forward bill to quash Trump's new tariffs

He also has said he thought Trump should be challenged, but the twist Sunday was that he agreed with Todd's question that such a challenger should be somebody "who espouses your (Flake's) views". "We in Congress simply can't be complicit as this administration courts economic disaster in this fashion", Flake said. "It really does", Flake said.

Trump, who announced his decision surrounded by steelworkers, said he was fulfilling a campaign promise.

The orders were signed over the objections of more than 100 congressional Republicans, who urged Trump in a letter to at least pare back the scope of the tariffs.

"I mean, it would be a tough go in the Republican primary", Flake said. "But that's not to say it will stay that way", Flake responded. This year, he has given Senate floor speeches denouncing the president's attacks on the media and antagonism toward Democrats. "The Heritage Foundation stands for an America where freedom, opportunity, prosperity, and civil society flourish".

On the tariffs, Flake said Trump had introduced "dual poisons" for the economy, by erecting new trade barriers and then introducing uncertainty by suggesting he might make some exceptions for certain countries.

Republicans fear Trump's action risks distracting voters and disrupting the US economy just months before the midterm election that will test his protectionist policies, populist rhetoric and chaotic approach to the presidency.

Earlier this month, he said, "I do think the president will have a challenge from the Republican Party, I think there should be".

Instead, Flake says "we have to have" more free trade and should have remained in the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) free trade deal, which Trump pulled the USA out of. "We need to aggressively negotiate both bilateral and multilateral trade deals, because we're going to be left behind". "People may not like how Pres Trump rolled these out, but I applaud him for trying".

House Speaker Paul Ryan was in Atlanta to tout the economic benefits of tax cuts, the centerpiece of the Republican campaign to hold on to Congress. President Donald Trump had other ideas.

"I'm disappointed because we just passed a tax bill and this kind of flies in the face of that".
