Senator David Perdue (R-GA) called out his colleagues on the Senate floor, insisting President Trump be given the room he needs to negotiate trade deals that are in the best interest for American workers and consumers.
Senator Corker said, "I haven't heard a single senator on our side that hasn't expressed concern to the president directly about what's happening with tariffs. We can't do that because we'd be upsetting the president, the president of the United States'".
"But no, the United States Senate right now, on June the 12th, is becoming a body where, well, we'll do what we can do but, my gosh, if the president gets upset with us then we might not be in the majority".
"I can't believe it".
Corker was particularly annoyed at Republican leadership for squashing his proposal to reel in Trump's powers to slap tariffs on key USA allies on national security grounds.
Corker and other lawmakers - Democrats as well as some of Trump's fellow Republicans - introduced the measure last week after the president's recent announcement that he was considering tariffs on automobiles, after imposing tariffs on steel and aluminum, citing national security concerns.

The bipartisan legislation is sponsored by Corker and Sens. Mitch McConnell being Majority Leader with a Republican president, there has been only one amendment vote.
"Because senators, United States senators who are elected by the people in their state, don't want to cast a tough vote, they block everybody from voting", Corker said. Corker exclaimed. "I would bet that 95 percent of the people on this side of the aisle support, intellectually, this amendment. We might poke the bear!" "The president might get upset with us as United States senators if we vote on the Corker amendment.so we're going to do everything we can to block it".
Paul's amendment is related to the legality of indefinite detention. Lindsey Graham of SC said it was unlikely there would be amendment votes and placed the blame squarely on Sen. "We're not going to give it up".
