Republican senator puts forward bill to quash Trump's new tariffs

13 March 2018, 11:41 | Glen Norman

Jeff Flake appeared on NBC's "Meet The Press" Sunday and said that President Trump should be challenged in the 2020 primary election.

On the flipside, left-leaning groups and individuals praised the plan as beneficial to United States workers.

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.

Johnson said he expected Trump's action, which takes effect in 15 days, to be challenged in court.

"Tariffs are a tax increase on American workers and their families", said Heritage President Kay Coles James in a statement shortly after Trump signed the order.

Port Wing native Megan Gustafson and Iowa are seeded sixth and they'll face 11th seeded Creighton on Saturday in Los Angeles. The Gophers (23-8) received a 10 seed in the tournament Monday, and they'll square up against 7-seed UW-Green Bay at 4 p.m.

McConnell said that he and other senators are "concerned about the scope of the proposed tariffs on steel and aluminum".

"Further, arguments that tariffs are necessary for national security reasons are not compelling", James added.

"I believe that these tariffs will actually cost us jobs, rather than protecting them".

Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee Orrin Hatch, a Republican from Utah, has expressed his opposition to the Trump tariffs.

"President Trump has done so much".

"If we don't trade, we don't grow".

Tim Phillips, the president of Americans for Prosperity, also condemned the tariffs as "disappointing" and a threat to the economy. He said he plans legislation that would nullify them.

"If there's a trade war and in response, tariffs are raised, that could even push down our supply in steel because it pushes down the demand", Professor Dempsey added.

The latest version of this law, adopted under Barack Obama in 2015, will expire in July of this year unless Trump requests an extension until 2021. "These could be a lethal blow to all the economic success this administration has ushered in".

"Tariffs won't start a trade war, there's 435 of them in place today to fight trade cheaters", wrote top union boss and AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka.

"I generally support the president on just about everything, but I think he's been misled, there are some people down there who have been misleading him on some of these things", Hatch continued. And, you know, when we only represent just over 20 percent of the world's economy, only 5 percent of the world's population, if we don't trade, we don't grow. "Targeted tariffs are the best way to start fighting back and hold cheaters accountable".
