Europe to impose retaliatory tariffs on U.S. imports

Besides Corker, the bill's sponsors are Republican Sens.

Many Republicans are hesitant to confront Trump in a legislative showdown that could end badly for them. Trump's approval ratings have also remained strong among Republican voters.

"I think we need to elect more women and keep electing more women not just in 2018 but going forward year after year".

Several Republican senators defied the White House Wednesday and pressed ahead with legislation that would require Congress to sign off on certain tariffs imposed by US President Donald Trump.

Asked if his shortening of the recess was aimed at pressuring Democrats to halt delaying tactics against Trump's nominees, McConnell showed no willingness of reviving the break if the pace of nominations quickens. It would also be retroactive for the past two years-meaning it could rescind last month's controversial steel and aluminum tariffs. Pat Toomey (Pa.), Lamar Alexander (Tenn.), Mike Lee (Utah), Ron Johnson (Wisc.), and Jeff Flake (Ariz.), along with Democrats Heidi Heitkamp (N.D.), Mark Warner (VA.), Brian Schatz (Hawaii) and Chris Van Hollen (Md.).

"We got the names", he said.

Senators of both parties said they welcomed the extra weeks of work, with Democrats signaling they intend to use the period to focus attention on health care.

"There's many ways that we can do this and we've worked on this before so there's things we can do to agree on those things and that's why it's better not to negotiate with you guys, but best amongst ourselves", said Rep. Raul Labrador, R-Idaho, one of the members who attended the meeting and a co-author of the conservative immigration bill written by House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Virginia. Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell has said he will not bring the legislation up for a vote, although he warned that Senators may try to attach it to another bill.

Meanwhile, the deep-pocketed Koch brothers, Republican kingmakers, went on the offensive against Trump earlier this week, rolling out a new, and radical list of trade-friendly demands on June 4.

The three groups launching the campaign: Freedom Partners Chamber of Commerce, Americans for Prosperity and the LIBRE Initiative, are urging the president to lift the recent tariffs on aluminium and steel imports as well as the proposed tariffs on other imports from China.

The Koch brothers are considered the architects of the 2010 "Republican wave" that swept Congress after Barack Obama's election. They want to confront "protectionist ideas" they say would hold back the economy.

Now the Kochs are taking their checkbook, influential foundation, and activists, away.

McConnell's decision upset Democrats, many of whom are up for re-election and would rather be home campaigning.

Nonetheless Corker's amendment represents the most significant attempt thus far by Republican lawmakers to arrest Trump's protectionist trade agenda.
