Top Republican Ryan leads GOP backlash against Trump tariffs

"But that's not to say it will stay that way", Flake said.

He fueled speculation about his presidential ambitions by announcing that he would appear at next week's New Hampshire Institute of Politics event, "Politics & Eggs".

Flake has not said he's running for president in 2020 but has refused to rule out such a move, even while acknowledging he probably couldn't get renominated for Senate in his home state. "We in Congress simply can't be complicit as this administration courts economic disaster in this fashion", Flake said in a Senate floor speech. I understand that it's a challenge on the campaign trail, certainly.

Flake, whom many speculate has his own presidential ambitions, did not indicate whether he meant to be that challenger. 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.

"Trade wars are not won, they are only lost", said Arizona Senator Jeff Flake, who has been highly critical of the president in the past.

Flake's efforts to nullify Trump's tariffs come as he has also attempted to push a massive amnesty for millions of illegal aliens that would flood the USA labor market and immediately drive down wages for American workers.

"I think the President mentioned Fix NICs in particular", Cornyn 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 need to aggressively negotiate both bilateral and multilateral trade deals, because we're going to be left behind".

"The risk is that this becomes normalized, and we take as normal what is abnormal". Without coming out in favor or against the tariffs, Baldwin said the decision "sends a strong message to bad actors like China" but also called for Trump to exempt European trading partners and do more to "target China's cheating".

Just days ago, OregonLive published a list of potential Republican contenders who could square off against Trump. "We should not normalize this behavior'".

In the case of these tariffs, the Republican leader used a 1962 law authorizing the president to tax certain imports in the name of national security protection - legislation rarely invoked in the past except in the notable case of oil.
