McConnell scraps August recess | Mcclatchy

President Donald Trump listens during a meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe sat Trump's private Mar-a Lago club Tuesday

In contrary to those who wanted the summer recess, Senator David Perdue (R-GA) said that his party, and indeed the Senate at-large, should take this time and be more productive.

Some Republicans are also hoping Trump simply changes his mind and doesn't follow through with it. John Boozman, a Republican from Rogers. "Otherwise, we can get up and talk about anything we want on another bill". "The next steps to rebuilding our military and reforming the Pentagon, the next steps towards strengthening our country's national security".

The business of the evenly divided New York State Senate remains stalled, as advocacy groups pressed for their bills to be acted on before the session ends in two weeks.

Corker, who has had other brushes with Trump in the past, said last week that imposing tariffs against trading partners "is the wrong approach and represents an abuse of authority intended only for national security purposes". And Senate Republicans are trying to stop a growing trade war ignited over President Donald Trump's decision to impose tariffs on US allies. It would also be retroactive for the past two years-meaning it could rescind last month's controversial steel and aluminum tariffs.

"Mitch is using any excuse he can to hold those of us who want to be home campaigning here in Washington because we have to vote", Nelson told reporters Tuesday.

The president remains popular in numerous ruby-red states, including in, where he campaigned for the Republican Senate nominee, Mike Braun, and bashed Democratic Sen.

"We had an agreement", Stewart-Cousins said, "... that we would present the amendment".

Democrats have invoked cloture on Trump's appointees, demanding 30 hours of debate rather than deferring to the president's nominees. Sen.

OPEC Publishes Wrap-Up of 2017 Oil Data
Saudi Arabia's pricing announcement for its monthly crude exports gives the first indication of how Gulf producers see markets. The price of oil has been under pressure given the potential for a trade war escalating over Washington's pursuit of tariffs.

"We Democrats welcome this additional time because it gives us the opportunity to address an issue that's on the top of the minds of so numerous American people, and one that Republicans have badly mishandled at this point: health care", Sen.

The Senate GOP leader said there was "not much" lawmakers could do, noting any legislation would have to be signed by the president or have enough support to overcome a veto, according to Kentucky publication Insider Louisville.

The Senate will now recess for one week in August instead of four, said McConnell, R-Ky.

Meanwhile, the deep-pocketed Koch brothers, Republican kingmakers, went on the offensive against Trump earlier this week, rolling out a new, and radical list of trade-friendly demands on June 4. But Democrats are planning a political counter-punch.

Congress should abolish farm and green energy subsidies, and repeal the "buy American" rules on federal projects.

The British leader has said that European nations should be permanently exempted from the tariffs. They and their network of donors spent an estimated $1 billion on the 2016 election.

Sen. Jon Tester, a centrist Democrat running for re-election in Montana, a state easily won by Trump, led the charge against Jackson. "If tariffs are taking away from that, that's certainly something that would not be helpful". But the Senate version carries a warning to Trump, with a trade provision to block any White House plan to lift penalties on the China-based telecommunications company ZTE, which faces trade law violations over selling sensitive technologies to U.S. adversaries. The truth is a bit more complicated, but Democrats have used tactics to stall some of Trump's selections.
