Senate overwhelmingly rebukes Trump with tariff vote

https://www.cnn.com/2018/07/11/politics/senate-trump-tariff-vote/index.html

"(CNN)For the second day in a row, the Senate pushed back on President Donald Trump, showing stiff resistance to his key policy decisions on tariffs and NATO even as the President is at a summit in Europe wrestling with allies over those same issues.
Senators voted overwhelmingly Wednesday calling on Trump to get congressional approval before using national security as a reason for imposing tariffs on other nations, as he did recently with steel and aluminum levies against Mexico, Canada and the European Union.
The bipartisan 88-to-11 tally on the non-binding resolution sends a message to the White House about how frustrated senators are over Trump's disruptive moves on tariffs."

It looks like congress is pushing back on Trump's unilateral decision to impose huge sales tax on everyone.

3. Non binding resolution. Carries about as much weight as the legal opinions espoused to us by

LetMyPeopleCheat.

8. The Dems are obviously supported this because, "Trump"

I would guess that a majority of the Reps that supported this are backed by the Chamber of Commerce.

10. look everybody... suddenly lefty is a cheerleader for the swamp and it's criminal inhabitants.

Trump was sent in to not give one single fuck what congress wants; those shit smears are the reason things are so jacked up in the first place.
Get the message and get over it. We aren't here to subscribe to your popularity contest
