Republican would be 'foolish' to block Mexican tariffs

President Donald Trump faced fierce opposition Tuesday from his own Republican camp over his threat of tariffs to force Mexico to stem illegal immigration, with top allies warning Congress may not back him in his latest trade standoff. "These tariffs will have an effect industry-wide", Carter said in the letter, which noted that General Motors Co is the largest automotive importer from Mexico.

"These tariffs will be paid by American families and businesses without doing a thing to solve the very real problems at the border", said Neil Bradley, the chamber's executive vice president.

U.S. House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy said he thinks a solution will be worked out to avoid the tariffs.

Senator John Thune, the Senate's No. 2 Republican, also told reporters a vote to approve tariffs on Mexico "would be a heavier lift" for Republicans than the border emergency declaration.

Tariffs on cattle crossing the border could raise costs for USA meat producers and processors, ranchers and economists said, particularly in border states like New Mexico and Texas that supplement more of their herds with Mexican cattle.

The mid-sized Tacoma could suffer, because 65 percent of the pickups sold in the United States are imported from Mexico, the memo said. Citing potentially devastating consequences to the USA economy, Senate Republicans defied the president Tuesday, announcing their opposition to the tariffs.

The talks, hosted by US Vice President Mike Pence, will include Secretary of State Mike Pence and several other high-ranking Trump administration officials, according to public schedules published on Wednesday.

The shipment delays would affect vehicles with high inventory levels on USA dealer lots if the tariffs take effect as threatened.

It added that America's hopes that China would become a more open and tolerant society have been dashed. The "clash of civilizations" reference appears to allude to comments made last month by a U.S.

With tensions running high, Senate Republicans made clear they were considering a brazen legislative move to block the tariffs, and delivered an earful to White House officials explaining Trump's position at a closed-door Senate lunch.

Last week, Trump vowed to slap escalating tariffs of 5% from June 10 on all goods from Mexico if the latter does not stem a tide of migrants from Central America crossing the USA border.

Lopez Obrador said Mexico could be ready to step up in order to limit the recent increase of illegal immigration into the US.

Trump on Tuesday acknowledged the U.S. "Our hope is that the tariffs will be averted, and we is never any longer going to hope to answer any hypotheticals". Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said he was optimistic the talks can end in an agreement. "They sent their top people to try". As a scholar who studies trade policy, I have a hard time agreeing with the president's strategy that tariffs can be used as a stick to pressure another country to do whatever he wants. And a US administration official told The Associated Press that Vice President Mike Pence will be chairing the meeting at the White House.

Republican Senator Marco Rubio on Wednesday said he is also does not support tariffs, but he agrees with Trump that Mexico has to step up to secure its southern border.

Trump, speaking at a news conference in London during a state visit to the United Kingdom, said he doubted congressional Republicans would follow through with any rebuke, and that he expected tariffs on goods imported from Mexico to go forward next week.

The official said Pence "is eager to hear what tangible measures the Mexican government is prepared to take to immediately address this growing crisis" at the border.
