THE HILL: GOP growing frustrated with Trump’s trade threats
May 1 | By: Alexander Bolton.
Republican lawmakers are urging President Trump to proceed cautiously on the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) after he shocked leaders in Canada and Mexico by threatening to pull out of the 23-year-old accord.
They immediately registered their alarm with the administration after word leaked last week that Trump was considering an executive order to pull out of the trade pact.
Senate Finance Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), who has jurisdiction over trade and customs, said he was troubled by news of the order and “raised some concerns, too,” with the administration.
