Trump's Trade War Backfires As Red States Defy Him

His main criticisms of Trump, published in a political bible Flake released last summer, zero in on Trump's uncouthness and lack of any tether to reality; Flake says these qualities have infected the Republican Party, making it impossible for him to run for re-election in good conscience.

Flake called the tariffs "a marriage of two lethal poisons to economic growth - protectionism and uncertainty", and promised to draft legislation to nullify them.

In that sense, Flake's pushback when it comes to tariffs is interesting considering that he falls in line with Trump's bad agenda most of the time, as long as it matches Republican wisdom.

Brown praised Trump Tuesday for foisting steep 10 and 25 percent tariffs on aluminum and steel products, respectively. Peter Navarro, director of the White House National Trade Council, said the same thing Sunday on CNN.

"Our factories were left to rot, and to rust all over the place".

Warren, Democratic senator for MA, said: "When President Trump says he's putting tariffs on the table, I think tariffs are one part of reworking our trade policy overall".

"Well, I can tell you when every question you get in the hallway going to vote is about this, it just becomes tiresome", Flake said.

VP Pence: Joy Behar called and apologized so I forgave her
Iger revealed in his response to that question that Behar had personally apologized to Pence. "I give Joy Behar a lot of credit". Joy Behar , who mocked Vice President's Mike Pence's Christian faith and then resisted apologizing, has now done so.

They threaten, given Trump's predilections, to undermine the open trading system that has contributed to American and global prosperity since World War II.

Even some of Trump's strongest allies, like conservatives in the House Freedom Caucus, oppose the tariffs but concede there is little Congress will do to try to stop them if Trump moves forward with them.

Several lawyers were skeptical that a court would block the president.

Red state leaders are freaking out, and not only because majority oppose Trump's protectionist agenda: Many realize the real damage could come when US trading partners strike back - and the states that are going to pay the highest price are the GOP states that voted for Trump.

Another law grants extensive powers to the president to negotiate trade agreements, allowing some 15 accords to be struck since 1979. "This is very hard, I think, to address by legislation, and it's obvious the president certainly has his mind made up", Roberts said.

Countries could challenge Trump's action in the World Trade Organization, putting this worldwide forum in the uncomfortable position of determining what is in the "essential security interests" of the US, in accordance with an existing agreement on tariffs and trade.
