Sen. Mitch McConnell announces August recess cancelled

Alaska House of Representatives Sen. Mitch McConnell announces August recess cancelled

Trump's top economic adviser, Larry Kudlow, defended the president's trade tactics against Canada and other allies, telling reporters at the White House press briefing Wednesday that the president is determined to equalize the playing field and not start trade wars.

This time, it is over the President's latest tariff moves.

Corker described the call as "lengthy" and asked if it became tense, Corker said "we had a heartfelt conversation". "I will not support any efforts that weaken his position".

Jack Reed, D-R.I., responds to an announcement by Majority Leader Mitch McConnell that he intends to cancel the tradional August recess. "We'll see. I am hopeful we are able to do that in a cooperative vogue, however we have got a lot of instruments accessible". Instead, he said, he favors trying to persuade the president change course.

Sen. Liz Krueger, a Manhattan Democrat, was set to explain the amendment and the reasons for voting for it when DeFrancisco, again surprising Democrats, rose to say the GOP would accept it.

But Corker was undeterred, and referred to this proposal as a "legislative prerogative".

"He's not pleased with the effort", Corker, who is retiring at the end of his term, told CNN, referring to Trump.

The House still plans to be out of session for the month of August.

Iowa Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley is among those who are uncommitted.

One of the Senator's not sponsoring the bill is Senator John DeFrancisco, the Deputy Republican Leader.

Ryan's comment was the most recent from Democratic and Republican politicians warning the president not to halt or stifle the Mueller investigation. Also, all 100 senators would have to agree to let it get a vote - a particularly tall order since Trump's opposition hints at a potential veto and the defense measure has broad backing. They also say that China's influence in North Korea plays a role in the president's thinking on the trade disputes.

In a statement, the chamber said the business and agriculture community is concerned the tariffs will lead to lost American jobs and that Corker's "modest proposal" would help clarify Congress' prerogatives on overseeing tariff policy.

Congress has the authority in the Constitution to oversee trade. Pat Toomey, R-Pa., joined a bipartisan group of his colleagues Wednesday to sponsor legislation that would require Congressional approval of tariffs raised in the name of national security. Now, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell wants to bring that to an end - and the timing couldn't be more suspect. It would affect not only future actions, but any taken within the last two years.

Flake and Corker, who are both retiring, have been frequent critics of the White House.

Democratic co-sponsors include Mark Warner of Virginia, Brian Schatz of Hawaii and Chris Van Hollen of Maryland.

Trump gave no indication Wednesday he would soften his stance.

"By August, we will see a dramatic increase in health insurance premiums in America", Sen.

"I believe that there is loads of Democrats who're quietly like 'look, that is nice what he is doing, '" Gardner stated. If voters want a Senate that is going to act like part of an equal branch of government and represent their interests, they need a new majority.
