Jeff Flake Drafting Bill To Kneecap Trump On Trade Policy

House Speaker Paul Ryan urges Trump to reverse himself on planned tariffs

The president did not say whether he will sign tariffs on steel and aluminum imports at the meeting.

The US leader has triggered howls of protest in his own camp by slapping tariffs of 25 percent on imports of steel and 10 percent on aluminum on Thursday, with only Canada and Mexico exempt for the time being.

As the president dug in on his position, any potential compromise with foreign trading partners and Republican lawmakers was expected to still include some form of tariffs.

The speaker pointed to two pieces of must-pass legislation: the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) reauthorization and the omnibus spending package lawmakers are now negotiating ahead of a March 23 deadline. John McCain, expressed concern that Trump's sharp tariffs will actually hurt the US economy.

"These so-called "flexible tariffs" are a marriage of two lethal poisons to economic growth - protectionism and uncertainty".

"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. 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.

"We're going to do the traditional infrastructure you're thinking of, which is like highways and roads and bridges", he said. Now efforts are aimed at narrowing the scope of the tariffs, focusing them more closely on "bad actors" such as China.

The president was surrounded by steel and aluminum workers as he explained his decision at a White House ceremony.

Sen. Dick Durbin of IL, the Senate's No. 2 Democrat, said he wanted to see what Trump produces, but he believes Trump is "painting with too broad a brush".

"I don't think our trade policy ought to be used as a playing card in the talks with both Canada and Mexico on NAFTA", said Sen. "I don't think we're at the point where we need to consider that bill yet", said Sen.

Gosar says Trump has proven that he knows what he is doing when it comes to handling the economy. "There are some people who are talking about that, but the last thing we want to do is pass historic tax relief in December and then undo that, so we are not going to raise gas taxes".

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, R-Wis., pauses as he meets with reporters following a closed-door Republican strategy session on Capitol Hill in Washington, Tuesday, March 6, 2018.

And overseas, Jean-Claude Juncker, president of the European Commission, said the European Union could respond by taxing American goods including bourbon, blue jeans and Harley Davidson motorcycles.

To block the tariffs, even temporarily, opponents would have to convince a judge that they're likely to win and that they'd suffer irreparable harm if the tariffs go into effect.
