Senator Jeff Flake calls for Trump to face 2020 primary challenge

Republican Senator Jeff Flake slammed President Donald Trump's newly signed tariffs on steel and aluminium imports while introducing a bill that would nullify them completely, the media reported.

Flake, one of the GOP's most outspoken Trump critics, is stoking speculation about his 2020 plans with a Friday appearance in New Hampshire as part of the "Politics & Eggs" speaker series, which draws presidential hopefuls to the first-in-the-nation primary state. "I understand that it's a challenge on the campaign trail, certainly", Flake said. The Republicans called on Trump to target the tariffs toward "China's unfair practices".

The Arizona Republican explained that he couldn't get re-elected in his party right now because he believes in free trade and has expressed reservations towards the president, who is a member of his party. "But that's not to say it will stay that way", Flake responded. Last year, he wrote a book rebuking his own Republican Party for embracing Trump-style nationalism and protectionism at the expense of traditional conservative values such as free trade. The president rolled out the tariffs Thursday, extending an initial exemption to Canada and Mexico while raising the possibility of exemptions for other countries that renegotiate their trade policies with the United States. But Democrats have struck a more measured tone, as many members of the party's progressive wing have always been critical of free trade agreements they believe harm U.S. workers. 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.
