GOP Lawmakers Voice Little Support For Trump's Tariffs


Without disclosing the names of any other country that could hope for exemption, Sanders said: "That would be a case-by-case and country-by-country basis, but it would be determined whether or not there is a national security exemption". But the president says, "We're going to be very flexible".

And Sen. Jeff Flake said he was already working on legislation to nullify the tariffs.

"I'm not sure there are any winners in trade wars", said Johnson, who ran a plastics manufacturing business in Wisconsin before being elected to the Senate. "Congress can not be complicit as the administration courts economic disaster".

"I'm going to - as soon as it comes out if it is anything approximating what he's talked about - introduce legislation to nullify it".

Like most Senate Republicans, Roberts strongly opposes Trump's impending decision to impose new tariffs of 25 percent on steel imports and 10 percent on aluminum imports.

The speaker has urged the president to reconsider imposing tariffs on foreign imports over fears of a possible trade war with America's closest allies.

The European Union has threatened to slap similar tariffs on American products. "It's something I'm very upset about". "I just haven't persuaded him yet".

During a conference call between White House officials and GOP Hill staffers Thursday, administration representatives requested favorable comments from members on the president's plan, a suggestion that the staff in one office laughed at, according to a Republican aide. Others have said Congress needs to claw back some of the constitutional authority on trade that they have willingly handed over to the executive branch over the years.

"I seriously question whether you'll have enough Republican senators who want to cross the President in this way", Flake admitted to reporters on Tuesday.

Trump tweeted Thursday: "Looking forward to 3:30 P.M. meeting today at the White House".

Whatever Washington lawmakers opt to do, they will have to reach a two-thirds majority vote to overcome a presidential veto - forcing Republicans to find support among the Democratic opposition, a challenge in its own right.

Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan's spokeswoman, Ashlee Strong, said on Monday in a statement, "We are extremely anxious about the consequences of a trade war and are urging the White House to not advance with this plan". Paul Seamus Ryan, the Vice President of Policy and Litigation at watchdog nonprofit Common Cause, told ThinkProgress that the payment Trump's attorney made to Daniels may have violated federal law, depending on where the money came from.
