Trump calls Sen. Bob Corker over trade spat

Alaska House of Representatives U.S. Senate leader points to farm bill vote around July 4

As former speaker John Boehner recently said, "There is no Republican Party".

But last week, Trump went too far. "I will tell you we were not out-maneuvered", Hochul said of Democrats being caught by surprise by the veto override and GOP initial approval of the abortion amendment.

"It's important to remember - the Senate's in the personnel business".

President Donald Trump told the Tennessee Republican in a "lengthy" call Wednesday to back off legislation to rein in his power to levy huge tariffs on United States allies, seeking to head off a confrontation with Republicans in Congress.

Corker also expressed concern that because Trump is so heavily invested in the tariffs, rebuking him in such a way could be hard for those in a political bind. Lawmakers would then have 60 days to approve the proposed actions.

Last year, McConnell also announced he would delay the chamber's five-week August break by two weeks.

Corker says there's "no way" automobiles and the other imports are a national security threat.

McConnell's revelation, during his exclusive interview on Fox News' "The Ingraham Angle", could squash momentum behind a discharge petition that House Democrats' and a few Republicans are pushing to circumvent House leadership and force the full House to debate four immigration bills. "Even though we win them all in the end, [Democrats are] taking a lot of time".

The issue is creating some controversy among Republicans who have traditionally been cautious about criticizing Trump. The truth is a bit more complicated, but Democrats have used tactics to stall some of Trump's selections.

Asked if GOP leaders are on board, Corker said, "We'll see".

I get it. "It's a step forward in the future, toward all the stuff I wanted to get away from", he said. "So why are y'all mad?" I just want to be over here and be happy [motions to his right], so I'll probably just stay over here and be happy".

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said Tuesday he would not allow the Corker tariff proposal to be brought up as a freestanding bill.

Republicans will be making the case to the administration that the tariffs could dampen the economic gains from the GOP tax cuts and sour the mood among voters as lawmakers are campaigning to protect the Republican majority in Congress.

Joining Corker in introducing the plan was Democratic Sen. The makers of Jack Daniel's, the iconic Tennessee whiskey, are threatened by retaliatory tariffs that are being to be leveled by Mexico, Canada and the European Union.

The president should renegotiate NAFTA, and reenter talks on the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

Hochul, a former Buffalo-area congresswoman, said she didn't take it personally, and that she "wouldn't descend to that level". "We thank the governor for sending his lieutenant governor to preside over this historic override", Flanagan boasted shortly after the override. They and their network of donors spent an estimated $1 billion on the 2016 election.

"Steel is steel", Trump said in his speech before signing the tariffs on March 8, "if you don't have steel, you don't have a country".

"Mitch is using any excuse he can to hold those of us who want to be home campaigning here in Washington because we have to vote", Nelson told reporters Tuesday.

Trump gave no indication Wednesday he would soften his stance.

"There was no adherence to that conversation nor was there an opportunity to really have a vote", Senator Andrea Stewart-Cousins (D-Yonkers) said.

Corker's bill did pick up the support of two prominent groups - the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and Koch Industries, the multinational corporation led by Republican megadonors David and Charles Koch.
