Sen. Jeff Flake threatens bill to block Trump’s tariffs

Sen. Jeff Flake said Thursday he would introduce a bill to block tariffs on imported steel and aluminum that President Donald Trump unveiled.

In a pair of tweets immediately after Trump laid out his plans, Flake, an Arizona Republican who has been a frequent critic of Trump, said the tariffs are “a marriage of two lethal poisons to economic growth — protectionism and uncertainty. . . . I will immediately draft and introduce legislation to nullify these tariffs, and I urge my colleagues to pass it before this exercise in protectionism inflicts any more damage on the economy.”

These so-called ‘flexible #tariffs’ are a marriage of two lethal poisons to economic growth – protectionism and uncertainty.
