GOP leader McConnell cancels most of Senate's August recess

GOP senators A president can obstruct justice

Some GOP senators say they think they're close to reaching a deal to protect undocumented immigrants under DACA and secure funding for Trump's wall. He also said that the USA steel and aluminum industries have "been ravaged" by foreign trade policies, adding that "this is only the first step".

McConnell blamed the backlog of President Trump's nominees on a record number of cloture's due to Democratic filibusters in the 2018 Senate session. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz. "If we believe our own rhetoric - on trade, tariffs and congressional prerogative - I hope it does come to a vote".

The EU says it will introduce "rebalancing" tariffs on about 2.8 billion euros' ($3.4 billion) worth of US steel, agricultural and other products, including bourbon, peanut butter, cranberries and orange juice. Those tariffs last week expanded to include Canada, Mexico, and the European Union, which had previously been exempt from the measures and are now retaliating.

In written statements, Arkansas' two USA senators voiced support for the move and blamed the minority party for the Senate's slow pace. "But at the end of the day if decides he wants to put tariffs in place, Congress has to approve this".

"It's a disgrace", Trump said.

Sons of Anarchy's Alan O'Neill Dead at 47
According to TMZ , O'Neill, who starred as Hugh on the FX series from 2013 to 2014, had heart problems and was a heavy smoker. Entrepreneur Shawn Steiner posted: "Just heard my long time friend passed away this morning Alan O'Neil - RIP my friend".

Corker's effort has been bolstered by another strong-willed supporter: Pennsylvania GOP Sen. "We want to see the President succeed", said Sen. But Democrats are planning a political counter-punch.

In North Dakota, exporting is critical for farmers, ranchers and manufacturers, Heitkamp said, "but the administration's wrongheaded trade policies are putting their livelihoods in jeopardy". They will no longer need to fear being ambushed by those concerned about a lack of affordable health care coverage or underfunded safety net programs like Medicare and Social Security.

Koch spokesman Philip Ellender said it's important that Congress reassert its constitutional authority on trade decisions, including tariffs, and that the company opposes policies that impose trade barriers that will ultimately hurt individuals, businesses and communities. The legislation would require Trump, and any future president, to get congressional approval before invoking section 232. The majority leader is pointing to what he calls "historic obstruction" by the Democrats. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) said in an interview with the Washington Post on Wednesday that the move clearly shows McConnell is "scared to death" that the GOP might lose control of the Senate in November. "NDAA is certainly one of them but it is open to amendment and we'll see what happens as it moves across the floor".

Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer said he would push for votes on expanding access to Medicare, the health insurance program for the elderly; lowering drug costs and health insurance premiums; increasing tax credits for health insurance; and making sure people with pre-existing health conditions do not get priced out of insurance. Anyone who doesn't back their free trade principles is "going to have a harder time getting support from our network", an official with the Koch network told Quartz. The AFP has been sharply critical of President Trump's proposed tariffs, and Philips told Tony we already have the historical precedent to demonstrate that the economic impact of a trade war will be severe. By passing this legislation, Congress can reassert its constitutional responsibility (Article 1, Section 8, Clauses 1 and 3) on trade and ensure Americans can keep buying affordable products and keep selling our goods overseas.
