Jeff Flake to Write Bill to Nullify Trump Tariffs

Since Trump suggested the tariffs earlier this week, opining that "trade wars aren't so bad", Republicans on Capitol Hill have been trying frantically but unsuccessfully to talk him out of it. "Our economy and our national security are strengthened by fostering free trade with our allies and promoting the rule of law".

House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady, a Texas Republican, praised Trump for exempting Mexico and Canada from tariffs - for now - and said the White House should "go further to narrow these tariffs so they hit the intended target -- and not USA workers, businesses, and families".

The Trade Partnership, a consulting firm, said the tariffs would increase US employment in the steel and aluminum sector by about 33,000 jobs but would cost 179,000 jobs in the rest of the economy. Democrats need to gain a net total of 24 seats to win the majority, which would allow them to block Trump's legislative agenda. Union leaders and Democratic lawmakers from Rust Belt states have praised the planned tariffs, joining with advocates within the administration including Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross and White House trade adviser Peter Navarro.

The process of announcing the penalties has been the subject of an intense debate and chaotic exchanges within the White House, pitting hard-liners against free trade advocates such as outgoing economic adviser Gary Cohn aiming to add more flexibility for US trading partners. Indeed, he said, Canada is probably already drawing up lists of USA products to tax in retaliation.

Sen. Mike Lee, a Republican from Utah, is proposing legislation that would generally require future tariffs to get congressional approval.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said the exemptions for Canada and Mexico are not enough. "Congress can not be complicit as the administration courts economic disaster". Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, said. "Far more jobs will be lost for other factory workers", Sasse said. Johnson demanded a host of data from the administration pertaining to its process of deciding to impose the tariffs. Those probes found that foreign imports of steel and aluminum were such a burden on domestic producers of the metals that they are creating a threat to national security.

President Donald Trump is suggesting that Australia and "other countries" may be exempted from steel and aluminum tariffs, along with Mexico and Canada.

The U.S. noted recent United Nations reports about some of the extremist operations in the G-5 countries and the Trans-Sahel. Tillerson made the announcement at a speech in Virginia before departing for a week-long trip to several African countries.

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

"I disagree with this action and fear its unintended consequences", House Speaker Paul Ryan said.
