Republican senator introduces bill to quash Trump's tariffs

He went on to say that it would be a tough go for any Republican to run a primary campaign against Trump.

In an interview with CNN's Jim Acosta on "State of the Union", Johnson said he would back a bill to reject the tariffs, but seemed confident it wouldn't have enough support to pass.

Congress has the power to challenge President Trump on new tariffs, but it's unlikely lawmakers will act, even though almost all congressional Republicans oppose the president's trade policy because they believe it will harm the US economy.

"Trade wars are not won, they are only lost", said Arizona Senator Jeff Flake, who has been highly critical of the president in the past.

Of course, when Trump follows through with the tariff threat, he could imperil the future of the USA auto industry, which President Obama pulled back from the brink of collapse.

There was some praise from Democrats for the Republican President. Sen. "We need to aggressively negotiate both bilateral and multilateral trade deals, because we're going to be left behind". Congressional Republicans are anxious that Trump's trade policy will mitigate any economic benefits from their 2017 tax cuts, particularly in a midterm election year when Republicans want to run on a platform of economic success. Trump used a vulgar phrase to describe Todd at the rally. "And I don't blame my colleagues for just saying, 'Hey, you know, I'm just not going to comment anymore.' But I think it's our responsibility, at least at some point, when he goes so far, to stand up and say, 'This is not normal".
