According to the editorial board of the conservative Wall Street Journal, Republicans must band together and strip President Donald Trump of some of his trade powers before he does irreparable damage to the U.S. economy. Under the headline, Congress vs. Trump on Tariffs, the board blamed Democrats for the laws that have allowed the President to impose tariffs -- citing national security -- before saying the GOP needs to "rein" Trump in.
Politico reports that the Republican's have put an end to any effort to stop Trump's tariffs:
Senate Republican leaders are maneuvering to defuse an effort by one of their own seeking to handcuff President Donald Trump on trade.
GOP leaders are moving swiftly to tamp down support for Sen. Bob Corker's (R-Tenn.) proposal to give Congress power to stop Trump tariffs, eager to avoid a standoff with the president five months ahead of the midterms.
