GOP Leaders Look to Pence on Tariffs

“In public, Vice President Mike Pence is loudly praising his boss’ proposed tariffs on steel and aluminum — while gently urging him to scale back the policy behind the scenes,” Politico reports.

“Pence, according to more than a half-dozen White House and Capitol Hill aides, has been quietly delivering messages to the president from Republicans on the Hill, who have publicly opposed the tariffs plan set to be announced as early as Thursday—though he’s made sure to maintain a studiously neutral position, to the frustration of some who had hoped he would do more to exert influence over Trump.”
