GOP Senators Won't Back Trump's Mexico Tariffs

On Tuesday Republican senators warned that the White House may not have support from members of their party in Congress for threatened tariffs on Mexican imports.

Then President Donald Trump said lawmakers would be foolish to try to stop his plan.

AutomotiveNews.com reports that at a closed-door luncheon on Capitol Hill, Republicans told officials from the White House counsel's office about their concerns over Trump's threat to impose tariffs on goods imported from Mexico next week.

U.S. Sen.

Ron Johnson from Wisconsin warned the White House not to count on the same level of backing it got from Republicans earlier this year, when Trump declared a national emergency to divert funds to build barriers at the border with Mexico.
