    Bob Corker says GOP senators are working on plan to 'push back' on Trump policy

    Bob Corker says GOP senators are working on plan to 'push back' on Trump policy

    Washington (CNN) Sen. Bob Corker said Saturday that he is working with other Senate Republicans on an effort to "push back" on President Donald Trump's use of authority "in ways never intended and that are damaging to our country and our allies."

    Earlier Saturday, the Tennessee Republican tweeted out a pair of articles focusing on the administration's recent announcement that it is imposing steel and aluminum tariffs on Canada, Mexico and the European Union, and some of its other economic interventions that go against traditional free-market Republican orthodoxy. One, a Wall Street Journal opinion piece, argued the tariffs will harm the US economy and American foreign policy. The other, a Washington Post story, mentioned an administration plan to keep coal and nuclear power plants from closing.

    In response to the articles, Corker wrote in a tweet, "These two stories feel like something I could have read in a local Caracas newspaper last week, not in America. Venezuela, here WE come!"

    The senator said in a follow-up tweet, "I am working with like-minded Republican senators on ways to push back on the president using authorities in ways never intended and that are damaging to our country and our allies. Will Democrats join us?"

    Corker and a number of congressional Republicans, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan, have criticized the administration's announcement that it will impose the new tariffs on three of America's biggest trading partners.

    Corker called the decision "the wrong approach," in a statement earlier in the week and said the move "represents an abuse of authority."

    So glad this weasel is leaving Congress. December won't get here soon enough to be rid of him. Corker, you don't represent our allies on domestic issues like work and jobs for Americans. Thank God the people of this country have President Trump looking out for our best interests. We want the tariffs, we want our companies to buy US steel, US aluminum, and as much US everything else as possible. Tariffs help Americans correct our own purchasing mistakes that hurt our country and citizens. You obviously don't understand that, which makes you one of the idiots that created this mess to begin with that Trump is trying to fix for US. Now, you leave him alone, you sit down, shut up and wait to take some orders. Trump's got this, you don't. Same to you Mitch!

    Is it any wonder why he was booed at a Republican Convention?

    He was booed last week or at Trump's Nashville Rally for Marsha Blackburn who is running to win his seat! I hope she wins!! And wins big!! And it was a lot of boos, they were not bashful about showing their displeasure with him. They love Trump and what he's working so hard to do for our country.
