BREAKING: Senate just overwhelmingly REBUKED Trump on Trade

In a major show of unity, the Senate just voted 88-11 in favor of a resolution by Sen. Bob Corker that rebukes Trump on his trade policies…well symbolically:

As you can see it’s a non-binding rebuke that only calls for including language in the omnibus spending bill that would roll back Trump’s unilateral trade powers on national security grounds by including Congress in the imposition of new tariffs.

So in other words it doesn’t really do anything except to call for future action that may or may not happen.

In case you were wondering who voted ‘nay’ on the bill…

So that means both Mike Lee and Ted Cruz, among many others, voted for the resolution.

You can likely expect the argument from some of those voting ‘nay’ to be that they didn’t want to criticize the president while he is overseas.
