MSNBC: Paul Ryan Breaks from Trump on Tariffs
BRZEZINSKI: "House Speaker Paul Ryan is breaking from President Trump over his proposed new tariffs on steel and aluminum criticizing the move as a potentially dangerous one. Speaker Ryan echoed the concerns of his Republican and Democratic colleagues, said the move by the President could damage the U.S. economy and start a trade war. In a statement from his office, Ryan said, 'We’re extremely worried about the consequences of a trade war and are urging the White House not to advance with this plan. The new tax reform law has boosted the economy and we certainly don’t want to jeopardize those gains.' Despite Ryan’s plea, President Trump says he’s not backing down from his decision."
