Chamber of Koch-Owned Chuck Grassley Threatens Trump’s Trade Agenda in WSJ Op/Ed

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) took aim at President Donald Trump’s trade agenda today, essentially holding the President’s proposed trade deal hostage unless he removes tariffs.

In an op/ed published by the globalist Wall Street Journal, Grassley paid lip service to the economic progress caused by Trump’s trade policies before giving the President an ultimatum: end the tariffs or he will sink the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA).

“The administration can take the lead by promptly lifting tariffs on steel and aluminum from Canada and Mexico and working with allies to address the true source of overcapacity: China,” wrote Grassley, who serves as chairman of the Finance Committee.

Bloggers at The Last Refuge took Grassley to task in an in-depth Twitter thread showing exactly who this swampy Senator’s masters truly are.

Here are some their selected tweets laying out exactly what is happening right now with the Trump administration fighting the corporate power structure to help the U.S. economy:

Trump has to fight the orthodoxy of both major political parties in order to get anything done. It’s amazing he has achieved so many accomplishments with the entrenched forces out to destroy him. Draining the swamp will never be easy, with snakes like Grassley lacking the courage to stand for ‘America First.’
