Flake introduces bill to neutralize Trump's tariffs on steel, aluminum

"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.

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

In fact, Flake has already announced he'd be appearing at next week's New Hampshire Institute of Politics event, "Politics & Eggs".

Instead, Flake says "we have to have" more free trade and should have remained in the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) free trade deal, which Trump pulled the USA out of.

The players asked the woman for her name - she refused to identify herself - instead, babbling and cussing away. There's a lot of cross-talk, but it's clear the players are more bemused by the ranting woman than bothered.

That would-be challenger could be Mr. Flake, perhaps the party's staunchest Trump critic, who has declined to run for reelection in 2018.

On "Meet the Press", Flake said "tariffs are awful" for the economy and "tariffs married to uncertainty is probably even worse", referring to Trump's suggestion that he may allow certain exemptions and the possibility that the president may impose other tariffs.

-U.S. Republican Sen. Jeff Flake said on Thursday he would introduce a bill to nullify President Donald Trump's aluminum and steel tariffs, which Trump finalized in a proclamation earlier in the day.

Asked by host Chuck Todd if he regrets his decision to retire from the Senate, Flake noted that he wasn't leaving Congress because he has any "ill will" towards the institution or his colleagues, adding that he loved Congress.

He said it's tough to make the case that the Republican Party is still the party of free trade.

"I would, but I doubt it'd have any chance of passing, and if it passed, that we'd have the votes to override the veto", Johnson said.

I understand free trade is sometimes a challenge. "We need to aggressively negotiate both bilateral and multilateral trade deals, because we're going to be left behind. It really does", Flake said. 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. "We should not normalize this behavior'". "So I think it does real damage long term to the political culture. Today I'm defending America's national security by placing tariffs on foreign imports of steel and aluminum".
