Axios is out with a piece that suggests that Senate Finance Chair Grassley may lead the effort to curtail some of Donald Trump’s bombastic Trade War efforts….(Democrats won’t have any issues with this)
The idea will make a lot of people hopeful….
And will scare a lot of Republican lawmakers in Congress…..
A fresh example of the political hurricane about to hit Trump’s hardline trade agenda: Incoming Senate Finance Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) told Axios he may try to make it harder for the president to impose new tariffs.
What he’s saying: Grassley said he would take a favorable view of legislation limiting the administration’s power to impose tariffs to protect national security (known as Section 232 authority). “Maybe the definition of national security or maybe the conditions under which national security could be used as an excuse is a little wide,” he told Axios.
