"We're going to see who is treating us fairly".

"Yes, I do. I do, I mean, it would be a tough go in a Republican primary". Democrats need to gain a net total of 24 seats to win the majority, which would allow them to block Trump's legislative agenda.

"I disagree with this action and fear its unintended consequences", Ryan said in a statement.

Many lawmakers on both sides seem to agree the tariffs are not in the best interest of business in Wisconsin, but also agreed Pres. Trump's argument that countries like China are unfairly trading with the grossly over-producing steel to undercut the price.

"Confidence had really been building". We made American businesses more competitive.

Trump said the levies will take effect in about 15 days, adding that Canada and Mexico could be exempted based on the outcome of talks to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement.

Gosar says Trump has proven that he knows what he is doing when it comes to handling the economy.

Flake, an Arizona Senator who has been frequently critical of Trump's antics, is not running for reelection.


Trump has said the US will be "very fair" but "very flexible" and "protect the American worker".

Several Republicans, including Flake, have openly called the President's views on trade misinformed and misguided.

The president earned a rare show of support for his tariffs from one of the most liberal members of Congress, Sen.

Earlier in the interview, Todd had explained that Flake has planned trips to New Hampshire, pointing out that tends to raise questions that someone is thinking about making a presidential run.

"I am not afraid of tariffs". "So I think it does real damage long term to the political culture". It's not the only part. For his part, Trump framed this as keeping his many campaign promises to get tough on global trade, which he has frequently claimed was disadvantageous to the United States.

The lawmakers wrote that "any tariffs that are imposed should be created to address specific distortions caused by unfair trade practices in a targeted way while minimizing negative consequences on American businesses and consumers".
