McConnell: Bill reining in Trump's tariff powers 'an exercise in futility'


ㅤ"Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) signaled on Wednesday that he will not support legislation reining in President Trump’s tariff authority and that the President will not sign such a bill.
ㅤ’Yeah, I don’t think we need to be trying to rein in the President through legislation. No. 1, it would be an exercise in futility because he wouldn’t sign it,’ McConnell told SiriusXM when asked if he opposed the bill.
ㅤMcConnell was asked about legislation, spearheaded by GOP Sen. Bob Corker (Tenn.), that would require Trump to get congressional approval for any tariffs invoked under the national security sections of the trade law, known as Section 232."ㅤ
