  • GOP senator wants Trump to face 2020 primary challenge

"It's often easier to point to a shuttered factory and blame trade or immigration or some other convenient scapegoat, other than what is usually the case - it's modernization or mechanization or something that has meant that we have increased productivity, or simply the best allocation of capital in order to facilitate trade".

Johnson represents Wisconsin, a state whose governor, Republican Scott Walker, has asked Trump to reconsider his position on tariffs if he wants to protect U.S. jobs.

He fueled speculation about his presidential ambitions by announcing that he would appear at next week's New Hampshire Institute of Politics event, "Politics & Eggs".

Flake said the United States represents 20 percent of the world's economic output and just 5 percent of the world's population. He also has said he thought Trump should be challenged, but the twist Sunday was that he agreed with Todd's question that such a challenger should be somebody "who espouses your (Flake's) views". When Trump first brought up tariffs last week, "no one at the State Department, the Treasury Department or the Defense Department had been told that a new policy was about to be announced or given an opportunity to weigh in in advance", according to an NBC report.

Flake, like many Republicans, has expressed deep concerns about Trump's plans to issue new tariffs on aluminum and steel and says he's ready to fight legislatively if needed. "Somebody who voices, you know, reservations about where the president is or criticizes his behavior.it's tough to be re-elected in a Republican primary".

Groening, who was sentenced to four years in prison for his crimes, died without spending a day serving his term. A terrifying six million Jews were murdered in the Holocaust, or the Shoah, during World War Two.


"If we fail to do this and we continue to withdraw from the global marketplace, we're going to be left far behind", Flake said, pointing to the Trans-Pacific Partnership as an example. Last year, he wrote a book rebuking his own Republican Party for embracing Trump-style nationalism and protectionism at the expense of traditional conservative values such as free trade.

"If we don't trade, we don't grow".

"I do", Flake of Arizona responded Sunday when asked if Trump needs an opponent from the right.

"You know, tariffs are terrible".

Flake also reiterated his belief that Trump's behavior as president, such as continuing to verbally abuse the media, "does real damage long term to the political culture" and should not be normalized.
