There is a growing rift within the Republican Party over what to do about President Trump’s proposal to implement tariffs.
The President’s plan would include 25% steel tariffs and 10% aluminum tariffs. The proposed trade barriers would potentially not affect the NAFTA nations of Mexico and Canada, upon trilateral trade agreement.
Trump opponent Jeff Flake, Senator from Arizona, was at the forefront of the Republican party’s trade policy critics.
