Congress RINO’s Sabotage Trump’s Trade Policy

Speaker Paul Ryan’s office is openly lobbying President Donald Trump to walk back his Thursday announcement of steel and aluminum tariffs.

“We are extremely worried about the consequences of a trade war and are urging the White House to not advance with this plan. The new tax reform law has boosted the economy and we certainly don’t want to jeopardize those gains,” Ryan spokeswoman AshLee Strong said in a Monday morning statement.

Trump announced he would impose a 20% tariff on steel and 10% tariff on aluminum Thursday despite desperate attempts by many of his advisors to stop him. Ryan immediately reacted to the announcement, saying, “The speaker is hoping the president will consider the unintended consequences of this idea and look at other approaches before moving forward.”

The president has brushed off accusations like those from Ryan that he is starting a trade war saying Friday they are sometimes a “good thing.”
