President Trump to meet with aluminum, steel execs


"I'm not even - I haven't put a second of thought into this", Ryan said, a look of frustration visible on his face.

The president was surrounded by steel and aluminum workers as he explained his decision at a White House ceremony.

Johnson warned that Trump's tariffs could result in "retaliatory actions" from US trading partners while injecting "uncertainty" into an economy that had been booming during Trump's presidency and benefiting from the tax cuts included in the chief executive's tax reform law, approved last December. According to economic analysts, some of the communities that would be hardest hit by a trade standoff could be the same ones the president says he's aiming to help. The agreement was negotiated by Democratic President Barack Obama's administration, but had broad support from GOP leaders who have long backed multilateral free trade pacts.

"I actually think there is a better and more effective way to address unfair trade practices", began republican House Speaker Paul Ryan, "and that is to go after those practices specifically".

Of course, being successful in the midterms may also be hard for the GOP if the imposition of tariffs ignites a trade war that damages the economy.

Flake called the tariffs "a marriage of two lethal poisons to economic growth - protectionism and uncertainty", and promised to draft legislation to nullify them.
