Tariffs should be part of USA trade policy, Trump foe Warren says

Tariffs should be part of USA trade policy, Trump foe Warren says

Flake, whom many speculate has his own presidential ambitions, did not indicate whether he meant to be that challenger.

"I am not afraid of tariffs", she said on NBC's "Meet the Press" program. He praised himself for his forthcoming meeting with North Korea's Kim Jong Un, and he praised Singapore for executing suspected drug dealers, adding that he would like to do the same.

Flake said, "Yes, I do. I do". Trump's thoughts on executing drug dealers begin 49 minutes in, and his "presidential" bit starts just after the one-hour mark. The Republican Party is the Trump party right now.

"Yes, I do ― I do", Flake said.

But Flake says "that's not to say it will stay that way".

Republican Senator Jeff Flake vows bill to undo tariffs
Flake, whom many speculate has his own presidential ambitions, did not indicate whether he meant to be that challenger. While many Republicans opposed Trump's tariff plan, what they can do about it in Congress is uncertain.

Host Chuck Todd then asked Flake whether a Republican should challenge Trump, assuming he seeks the presidential nomination again. The president rolled out the tariffs Thursday, extending an initial exemption to Canada and Mexico while raising the possibility of exemptions for other countries that renegotiate their trade policies with the United States.

He said it's tough to make the case that the Republican Party is still the party of free trade.

Flake also reiterated his belief that Trump's behavior as president, such as continuing to verbally abuse the media, "does real damage long term to the political culture" and should not be normalized.

The rally was sprinkled with mentions of Saccone and the election in general, but for the most part, according to The New York Times, was "in-his-element Trump, vintage 2016: Rambling and fiery, boastful and jocular - the part of being president that he loves perhaps the most". "The problem is when you say, "Let's have tariffs, but let's couple that with uncertainty" - that's nearly worse", Flake said. "And I don't blame my colleagues for just saying, 'Hey, you know, I'm just not going to comment anymore.' But I think it's our responsibility, at least at some point, when he goes so far, to stand up and say, 'This is not normal".
