Jeff Flake wants GOP primary challenge to Trump in 2020

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross says the US wants

The looming departure of White House economic adviser Gary Cohn, a former Goldman Sachs executive who has opposed the promised tariffs, set off anxiety among business leaders and investors anxious about a potential trade war. "I will immediately draft and introduce legislation to nullify these tariffs, and I urge my colleagues to pass it before this exercise in protectionism inflicts any more damage on the economy".

But Republicans also are looking to possible lawsuits by companies hurt by the tariffs as a way to roll them back.

After finally getting enough votes in our Republican controlled Congress to get a tax bill passed, President Trump is now stepping onto hallowed ground where Republican "angels fear to tread" - tariffs.

They would rather see the tariffs imposed just on certain countries that are dumping exports.

President Donald Trump is announcing steep tariffs on imports of steel and aluminum to address what he says is an "assault on our country". The probe was authorized under the seldom-used Section 232 of the 1962 Trade Expansion Act, which gives the president broad powers to impose restrictions on domestic security grounds.

That bill would require congressional approval for major changes to trade policy.

"Our factories were left to rot, and to rust all over the place".

Ryan added in a separate statement that he is anxious Trump's decision will have "unintended consequences". "You guys know that, right?"

Free market groups and some conservative politicians argue such tariffs could erase some of the economic gains the country made during Trump's first year. Johnson called the move a "very risky action" that could spark a trade war and have "very serious unintended consequences".

Several lawyers were skeptical that a court would block the president.

In 1832, the state of SC attempted to declare as null and void the federal government's tariffs, a declaration of a very strong version of states rights that would rear up again when SC led the movement of states to secede from the US during the civil war. Canada and Mexico are exempt, and the White House has invited other nations to bargain for their own carveouts. "This is very hard, I think, to address by legislation, and it's obvious the president certainly has his mind made up", Roberts said.

"Many of the countries that treat us the worst on trade and on military are our allies". Specifically, Kansans are concerned about China retaliating on US sorghum exports. But it may be hard to get a veto-proof majority with some Democrats supporting Trump's action.
