<p>  President Donald Trump's threat to impose blunt new tariffs on Mexico has sparked a circular shoot-out of Republicans in Congress. </p>
<p>  A bloc of Senate Republicans threatens to veto a majority in order to block tariffs when Trump uses his national emergency powers, but most Republicans of the House of Representatives and another group of GOP Senators say their colleagues have made a mistake by undercutting the President in one of his signature questions. </p><div><script async src=

"That could quickly end this thing, that's the irony for me."

The split in public not only runs the risk of embarrassing the president and his party. It undermines the common goal of the Republicans to bypass the tariffs that Trump desperately wants to use.

It's about a conflict Some GOP legislators hope to put pressure on Trump with the prospect of a rebellion that far exceeds the dozen rejections in his national emergency declaration this winter, while others advocate a calmer persuasion campaign on the Capitol Hill. Take on Sens. Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) and Thom Tillis (RN.C.), both of whom are scheduled for re-election in red-colored states, but draw very different conclusions regarding the president's tactics.

"I'm not in favor, the President needs to rethink," warned Ernst, who supported Trump's national border emergency. "The President needs to understand that we are against these tariffs, and we do not think this is a wise move The President has his own opinion, he is a tariff type, but I think we have a lot of people in the opposition. "

Tillis made it clear that he did not agree with his colleagues' criticisms of the tariffs. 19659012] "We make a mistake if we reject the tariffs, because we already see a positive move," said Tillis, who had vowed to reject the latest national declaration before finally vowing to uphold it. "You could be Mexico to believe that all they have to do is wait for a solution to the disapproval, and I think it slows down the pace of negotiation. "

Tariffs are lengthwise The ongoing protests between the government and the president, especially among the Republicans, and the president's promise to raise 5 percent tariffs each month until Mexico tightened the border, alarmed them more than ever in the face of broad economic implications. In general, most Republicans hate tariffs and do not believe they are effective tools, and many would join the Democrats in rejecting Trump's national declaration of emergency.

Said Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.), Who is close to Trump. "I think [new tariffs are] is a bad idea, and I think there is a possibility that there is a veto majority."

But Republicans in Congress are not coordinating to convey a unified message to the president as to what consequences Trump might have moving forward. Even if the Senate can muster 67 votes to override a presidential veto, it would be in vain if Republicans in the House of Representatives work in exactly the opposite direction.
