REPORT: GOP Considering Voting to Stop Trump's Tarrifs
A new report is suggesting that the GOP is considering holding a vote to stop President Trump's tariffs on Mexico. The report indicates that a number of GOP members could join Dems to stop Trump.

According to The Daily Caller:

Republicans uncomfortable with the idea of a tariff war are reportedly mulling whether to vote against the president’s proposed tariff hikes against Mexico.

A number of congressional Republicans could join their Democratic counterparts in a vote to block President Donald Trump if he moves forward with threats to slap tariffs on all Mexican goods, according to a report from the Washington Post.

Such a move would serve as a sharper GOP rebuke to the president than the failed attempt earlier this year to revoke his emergency border declaration.

Similar to the resolution condemning the emergency declaration, a vote to block Trump’s tariffs would likely begin in the Democratic-controlled House and then move to the Senate, where enough Republicans could defect.

Many GOP senators have suggested that they are not happy with President Trump's threat. Rand Paul has even suggested that there would be a veto-proof majority fo senators who would vote against the president.
