AWFUL. McConnell Sends Warning to Trump on Tariff Threat Against Mexico: “There is Not Much Support in my Conference For Tariffs” (VIDEO)
The do-nothing Senate Republicans sent Trump a warning Tuesday that they do not support tariffs on Mexican imports.
President Trump last Thursday evening announced that a 5% tariff will be imposed on all Mexican imports beginning June 10th and will gradually increase until the illegal immigration stops.
“On June 10th, the United States will impose a 5% Tariff on all goods coming into our Country from Mexico, until such time as illegal migrants coming through Mexico, and into our Country, STOP. The Tariff will gradually increase until the Illegal Immigration problem is remedied at which time the Tariffs will be removed. Details from the White House to follow,” Trump tweeted last week.
Just hours after President Trump announced he will be imposing 5% tariffs on Mexican imports over illegal immigration, Mexico’s president Lopez Obrador sent Trump a letter begging for a meeting to work toward a solution.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell sent President Trump a warning Tuesday afternoon and let him know that Senate Republicans do not support the tariffs on Mexico.
McConnell said Senate Republicans had an opportunity to meet with representatives from the White House over lunch about the tariffs.
“There is not much support in my conference for tariffs, that’s for sure…Our hope is that the tariffs will be avoided,” McConnell said. “Most of us hope that this Mexican delegation that’s come up here and discussed the challenges at the border and what the Mexicans might be able to do to help us more than they have will be fruitful and that these tariffs will not kick in.”
