WASHINGTON – Top Republicans warned the Trump administration Tuesday against imposing new tariffs on all Mexican imports, saying the president risks an embarrassing congressional reversal if he goes through with the plan.

 

 Senate GOP leaders publicly and privately pressed the White House to negotiate a solution with Mexican officials and said Trump could face a congressional blockade if he goes through with the levies.

Courage and cowardice are contagious. Hopefully this catches on.

They all know it's bad policy and a stupid idea.

They know more than that. There is a reason London is posting all the stuff the Republicans said about Trump before he got elected. They know he's a moron. They are just using him

The GOP Senators aren’t going to materially stand up to Trump as long as Republican voters support him because all they care about is getting re-elected.

“Republicans don’t like taxes on American consumers, which is what tariffs are,” said Sen. Ron Johnson, chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee.

 

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, said that Trump administration officials got an earful from lawmakers expressing “deep concern and resistance to imposing tariffs on trade with Mexico because it would hurt American jobs.”

Trump's sheep here on the board need to listen to fellow republicans instead of defending this fool.

Trump:  They weren't protesting.  They were cheering.

But if he does anything to mess with the wealthy 1% they will slap his retarded ass down quick.

An evil part of me wants to see Trump go to the well for a 25% tariff on imported cars.

 

I read that Trump might have to get another emergency declaration through ahead of the Mexican tariffs. If true, it would be disappointing to see gop lawmakers go along with it again.

Democrats are learning. Win win here.    If Trump back downs Schumer called his bluff, If Trump stays with it, he risks hurting the economy and getting republican senators against him. 

 

President Trump called Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY) “a creep” after the Democratic leader predicted the president would back down from slapping new tariffs on Mexico, The Hill reports.

 

Schumer, speaking from the Senate floor, characterized the new tariffs as another example of Trump’s “whimsical and erratic proposals.”

 

He added: “President Trump has a habit of proposing asinine and dangerous policies before backing off. And President Trump has a habit of pretending that the very act of not following through on a misguided policy is somehow a victory. So, I wouldn’t be surprised at all if President Trump doesn’t follow through on these tariffs either.”

one thing trump likes to do is propose crazy shit so that when he proposes less crazy shit it doesnt sound as bad. 

 

this is probably all just a ploy to get some sort of tiny additional tax to be used for wall building so he can say he did that.
