Trump to Paul Ryan: "Not Backing Down" on Tariffs

|

President Donald Trump says "we're not backing down" on his push to impose tariffs on imported steel and aluminum despite criticism from fellow Republicans. Asked by a reporter during an Oval Office meeting with Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Trump said the tariffs "could be part of NAFTA."

Reporter: "Paul Ryan says he's worried about a trade war, are you going to back down on the tariffs?"

President Trump: "No, we're not backing down."

House Speaker Paul Ryan is "extremely worried about the consequences" of the tariff, and is urging the White House "to not advance with this plan," according to a statement issued by his office.
