GOP Congress develops mini-spine

"For the second day in a row, the Senate pushed back on President Donald Trump, showing stiff resistance to his key policy decisions on tariffs and NATO even as the President is at a summit in Europe wrestling with allies over those same issues.

Senators voted overwhelmingly Wednesday calling on Trump to get congressional approval before using national security as a reason for imposing tariffs on other nations, as he did recently with steel and aluminum levies against Mexico, Canada and the European Union.
The bipartisan 88-to-11 tally on the non-binding resolution sends a message to the White House about how frustrated senators are over Trump’s disruptive moves on tariffs."


But it is interesting to see the GOP congress completely at odds with Trump, and therefore his base. I wonder if the base needs to send the whole GOP congress packing and bring in some hardcore pro-tariff protectionists. Certainly the hard Left would be happy with that.
