McConnell cancels August Senate recess, leaving Democrats vulnerable

McConnell cancels August Senate recess, leaving Democrats vulnerable

Whether they do anything with it remains an open question. The Senate didn't want to pass any particular version of it. It's something Corker acknowledged to reporters when he noted that "doing anything up here is like pushing a major boulder uphill". But Democrats are planning a political counter-punch.

And, of course, the president could veto anything sent his way. Cory Gardner told Roll Call.

Corker's bill would require congressional approval for any tariffs that are imposed for national security purposes. Lawmakers would then have 60 days to approve the proposed actions. Instead, a series of stop-gap spending bills often are enacted until lawmakers reach a deal on all the spending measures.

President Donald Trump is defending his tough trade negotiations with China, Canada and Mexico, saying that US farmers have been treated "unfairly". Trump tweeted on Monday. They believe that Hochul can provide the tie-breaking vote in procedural matters, like whether a bill can be allowed to come to the floor for a vote.

Corker says there's "no way" automobiles and the other imports are a national security threat. "Congress has already given the President pretty unilateral authority on trade matters, so I think we're going to continue have the conversation and use the powers of persuasion".

"The US business and agriculture community is profoundly concerned about how newly imposed tariffs - and the inevitable foreign retaliation arriving in the next few weeks - will lead to lost American jobs", Bradley said in a statement.

"Sometimes", he said. "Not always, but sometimes".

"It's a difference of opinion", Corker told The Post. Democrats need only one senator to be present while the Senate is in session to object to Republican plans and make them go through procedural hurdles.

"It was warmly received", Corker said of his presentation.

Trump's top economic adviser, Larry Kudlow, defended the president's trade tactics against Canada and other allies, telling reporters at the White House press briefing Wednesday that the president is determined to equalize the playing field and not start trade wars.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has a long list of things to do this summer, hoping to net a string of smaller but solid victories for Republicans - including members of his conference up for re-election - as well as the President.

The idea being pursued by Corker, Sen.

Corker admitted that even with some bipartisan support, not every senator in his party would welcome this type of a bill.

The tariffs angered many Republicans, who fear they will touch off a trade war with American allies.

"The president has made it quite clear he doesn't intend to sign another omnibus and in order to prevent that obviously we should do our work, which is to pass individual appropriations bills", McConnell said.

Senate Democratic leaders said they welcomed the additional time to address health care costs, including prescription drug prices.

The president remains popular in numerous ruby-red states, including in, where he campaigned for the Republican Senate nominee, Mike Braun, and bashed Democratic Sen.

Currently, there are 10 Democrats up for re-election in states that Trump carried in 2016.

Sen. Chris Van Hollen, the Democrat from Maryland who is the chairman of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, is portraying the schedule change as an opportunity for legislating and messaging.
