Sen. Jeff Flake Threatens Bill to Nullify President Trump's Tariffs

Sen. Jeff Flake Threatens Bill to Nullify President Trump's Tariffs

"I mean, it would be a tough go in a Republican primary", Flake, a one-term Arizona Republican, told NBC's Meet the Press With Chuck Todd.

The top Republican in the US Congress, Paul Ryan, publicly denounced President Donald Trump's imposition Thursday of steep tariffs on imports of steel and aluminium. 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 are extremely anxious about the consequences of a trade war and are urging the White House to not advance with this plan", House Speaker Paul D. Ryan spokeswoman AshLee Strong said last week.

He said, "I don't know". "If he was coached by Frank he would be coached how to lose because he lost every game". Keep an eye on Jesse Lingard - one more booking and he will be suspended for the next Champions League match.

Orrin Hatch, the Utah Republican who chairs the Senate Finance Committee and who has enjoyed a close relationship with Trump, called the president's latest move policy "misguided".

More than 100 Republican members of the House have signed off on a letter condemning Trump's looming tariffs. "But that's not to say it will stay that way".

In fact, 12 of the 15 states that will likely take the biggest tariff hits are red states, according to new analysis from the Brookings Institute.

Turkish Armed Forces Now Less Than Mile Away From Syria's Afrin
People in Syria and out have reportedly offered to stand between the YPG and Turkish forces set to storm the city . The Kurdish Red Crescent Moon estimates the number at 232 civilians killed, including 35 children and 29 women.

Countries could challenge Trump's action in the World Trade Organization, putting this global forum in the uncomfortable position of determining what is in the "essential security interests" of the USA, in accordance with an existing agreement on tariffs and trade. And Democrat Conor Lamb, who is proving to be competitive in next week's special election in a Trump district outside of Pittsburgh, also backed the proposal - even using it to outflank his opponent, Rick Saccone, who also supports tariffs...

Trump said on Thursday that Canada and Mexico would be exempted from the tariffs as they try to negotiate a larger trade agreement.

Come to think of it, why did all these Republicans - who heard Trump's anti-immigrant and anti-free trade message over and over again in the campaign - not believe him? And, you know, when we only represent just over 20% of the world's economy, only 5% of the world's population, if we don't trade, we don't grow.

He later took over the bank's investment banking division, where profits doubled and revenue rose 70% during his tenure. The resignation of Harvey Schwartz will leave David Solomon as the sole President and COO of Goldman Sachs Group Inc .

Despite widespread condemnation from House Republicans, none have introduced measures to counter Trump's action. "We should not normalize this behavior'".
