Flake introduces bill to nullify Trump's tariffs

Patty Aguilar | 13 March, 2018, 11:42

The orders were signed over the objections of more than 100 congressional Republicans, who urged Trump in a letter to at least pare back the scope of the tariffs.

A 25 percent tax will be imposed on steel imports while a 10 percent tax will be imposed on aluminum imports.

"I'm not sure there are any winners in trade wars", said Johnson, who ran a plastics manufacturing business in Wisconsin before being elected to the Senate.

"I mean, it would be a tough go in a Republican primary. But that's not to say it will stay that way", Flake responded.

Flake, on Monday, appeared to knock the president over his rhetoric, saying trade is sometimes used as a "scapegoat" during campaigns.

"Yes, I do. I do", Flake replied. NBC's Chuck Todd asked Flake. The series, put on by the New Hampshire Institute of Politics and New England Council, describes its mission as providing "New Hampshire and New England business leaders with a chance to meet with major party presidential candidates" and calls itself "a "must-stop" on the presidential campaign trail".

The administration announced Sunday night that it would launch a commission to study school violence and would look at ways to allow states to train teachers who wanted to carry guns. 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.

Flake is also planning to introduce legislation to nullify Trump's tariffs on steel and aluminum imports, set to take effect later this month.

"If we fail to do this and we continue to withdraw from the global marketplace, we're going to be left far behind", Flake said, pointing to the Trans-Pacific Partnership as an example.

"I'm disappointed because we just passed a tax bill and this kind of flies in the face of that".

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.

"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.
