The tariffs, which were issued under Section 232 provisions of the 1962 Trade Expansion Act meant to allow protection of national security, have triggered widespread retaliation against U.S. exports.
President Donald Trump's pitch on trade at the G7 in Canada will be no doubt a tough sell, especially since many prominent lawmakers - from the President's own party - are criticizing the idea of imposing tariffs on steel and aluminum imports. Why are Republicans supporting a bill against their Republican president? They hurt American workers, families, and employers. It would first rely on congressional Republicans to vote in direct opposition to Donald Trump's legislative interests, not to mention Donald Trump could easily veto the bill.
For now, lawmakers may be skeptical about Trump's use of a tariff motion that's exclusively supposed for use for reputable nationwide safety considerations, however they're extra centered on his having a robust place within the ongoing talks.
A lot of the worry from congressional Republicans is about the instability the tariff policy could lead to.

Corker, who is retiring at the end of the year, said he received a "lengthy" phone call from the Republican president, who told him "he's not pleased with the effort" to rein in his trade authority.

Taliban orders its first ceasefire in 17-year battle
Ghani on Thursday, June 7, 2018 announced a weeklong cease-fire with the Taliban to coincide with the holiday. In the meantime, Taliban insurgents have continued to carry out attacks against Afghan forces.
And other Republicans are anxious Trump is spending too much time making flimsy national security arguments and not enough time focused on legitimate national security threats like Chinese telecom ZTE, which the Pentagon and intelligence community have long maintained poses a national security threat because it can use its devices as surveillance tools.
"For too long Congress has ceded important policymaking authority to the executive branch on a wide range of issues", Sen. "It's time for Congress to reclaim its constitutional authorities on tariffs to ensure we don't undermine the significant economic progress we have made over the last 18 months". This legislation makes it clear that to use Section 232, there must be a proven risk to our national security.
"I've said repeatedly, I don't think anyone wins a trade war".
"President Trump's global trade war is creating chaos here at home", said Hun Quach, vice president of worldwide trade at the retail leaders' group. "I encourage my colleagues to promptly pass this legislation and push back against ill-conceived protectionist measures".
