US House Speaker Ryan criticizes Trump tariff plan

House Speaker Paul Ryan urges Trump to reverse himself on planned tariffs

The president did not say whether he will sign tariffs on steel and aluminum imports at the meeting.

Ryan's full, unedited statement is below.

At those talks, U.S Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer said Monday that progress has been less than many had hoped and "our time is running short".

But the president has been opposed internally by Defence Secretary James Mattis and White House economic adviser Gary Cohn, who warned against penalizing USA allies and undercutting the economic benefits of the president's sweeping tax overhaul.

Walker on Thursday repeated his call for Trump to reconsider, saying "these tariffs will negatively impact key industries and employers in Wisconsin".

Appeals Court Rules Sex Discrimination Includes Bias Against Transgender People
Americans United for Separation of Church and State, which filed an amicus brief in the case, celebrated the panel's decision. But the US Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit this week rejected his claims and found in favour of Stephens and the EEOC.

"What we can't do in the body politic is whitewash the past or be purely tribal in our thinking, wherein, let's reverse the shoes, if it was a Democratic president and hush money had been paid in the campaign, would there be a series of hearings going on?"

Trump set the tariffs based on a Commerce Department investigation that found imports of the metals pose a risk to national security.

"Don't weaken his hand", said Rep. Lou Barletta, R-Pa., a Trump ally who is running for the Senate in November.

There will nearly certainly be broad legal challenges of the Trump administration claim that protecting USA steel and aluminum producers is necessary for national security, John Cornyn of Texas, the second-ranking Republican senator, said Friday. Now efforts are aimed at narrowing the scope of the tariffs, focusing them more closely on "bad actors" such as China. Sanford said. "I think you could probably point to a fair number of indications that suggest there would be". And he added that if three-way negotiations don't work, "we are prepared to move on a bilateral basis".

Fresno veterans home increases security in wake of Napa County hostage situation
Events manager Elizabeth Naylor, who was working about 16km north of the veterans' home, said she heard waves of emergency sirens. Authorities have asked tourists and those visiting wine county stay away from the home and surrounding area.

The White House said Wednesday that Mexico, Canada and other countries may be spared from tariffs under national security "carve-outs".

Separately, Mexican Economy Secretary Ildefonso Guajardo tweeted: "Mexico shouldn't be included in steel & aluminum tariffs". "I'm personally going to wait and see what the president has in mind, what the final deal is".

Trump has long threatened to pull out of the 24-year-old trade pact if it can't be overhauled and encourage manufacturers to bring factory jobs back the United States.

Trump threatened to tax European cars if the EU boosts tariffs on American products in response to his plan. Janesville Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan has made it clear that he is not in support of the President's move.

To block the tariffs, even temporarily, opponents would have to convince a judge that they're likely to win and that they'd suffer irreparable harm if the tariffs go into effect.
