What a Surprise: Globalist Paul Ryan Slams President Trump for Pushing Tariffs on Foreign Steel and Aluminum
Speaker Paul Ryan pushed back against President Donald Trump’s announcement to place tariffs on foreign aluminum and steel.
Paul Ryan, a renowned globalist who joined President Obama in pushing the Trans-Pacific Partnership, attacked President Trump on Monday for his announcement to place tariffs on foreign steel and aluminum.
Paul Ryan still has NO INTENTION of passing the Trump agenda more than a year after his stunning win over Hillary Clinton.
The Weekly Standard reported:
House Speaker Paul Ryan is pushing back on President Donald Trump’s announcement that he will impose hefty tariffs on foreign steel and aluminum, his spokeswoman said on Monday.
“We are extremely worried about the consequences of a trade war and are urging the White House to not advance with this plan,” Ryan’s spokeswoman, AshLee Strong, said in a statement.
The disagreement comes after Trump suddenly announced far-reaching tariffs during a meeting with steel and aluminum executives last Thursday. Foreign steel will face a 25 percent tax, and foreign aluminum will be under a 10 percent tax. It appears no countries will be exempt from the tariffs.
Speaker Ryan’s spokesperson Rachael Blade tweeted this out:
