During an interview with NBC's "Meet The Press" - which is hosted by Todd - on Sunday, Flake said the president's comments are at risk of becoming "normalized and we take as normal what is abnormal. Do you think he needs to be challenged from somebody who espouses your views?"

"We are extremely anxious about the consequences of a trade war and are urging the White House to not advance with this plan", House Speaker Paul D. Ryan spokeswoman AshLee Strong said last week.

The interview ended before Todd had a chance to ask Flake whether he meant to be that 2020 challenger. But several senior GOP senators, who also are opposed to the tariffs, said a legislative response may not be necessary now that Trump has indicated he's open to exemptions for several key countries. "But that's not to say it will stay that way", Flake said.

However, Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn said Monday that there's little chance the Republican-controlled Congress will pass legislation to block Trump's tariffs on aluminum and steel.

But on Friday, he will be in Manchester, N.H., to deliver remarks on "Country Over Party" at a "Politics and Eggs" event.

Cornyn is among the Republicans who've bucked the president on the tariffs, warning that they risk undermining strong US economic growth and undercutting the benefits of the Republican tax cut legislation passed previous year.

"I disagree with this action and fear its unintended consequences", House Speaker Paul Ryan said in a statement.


Earlier this month, he said, "I do think the president will have a challenge from the Republican Party, I think there should be".

President Trump, meanwhile, appeared in Pennsylvania Saturday evening to campaign for for GOP congressional candidate Rick Saccone.

But Flake maintained that tariffs will make things worse, not better, for Americans and the USA economy, reports CNBC News.

In Wisconsin, which went for Trump by the narrowest of margins, Republican Gov. Scott Walker has warned that tariffs could hurt the state's canning and beer industries. Sen.

"The tax bill was so massive, bigger than [Ronald] Reagan, biggest one done", Trump said.

"We just want fairness", he added.

The latest version of this law, adopted under Barack Obama in 2015, will expire in July of this year unless Trump requests an extension until 2021.
