"The Republican Party is the Trump party right now".

Flake, who has taken to the Senate floor as recently as January to draw attention to the danger that Trump's comments could cause, said he believes it is the Republican Party's job to take a stand. He praised himself for his forthcoming meeting with North Korea's Kim Jong Un, and he praised Singapore for executing suspected drug dealers, adding that he would like to do the same.

Earlier in the interview, Todd had explained that Flake has planned trips to New Hampshire, pointing out that tends to raise questions that someone is thinking about making a presidential run.

Watch the full address below. "But that's not to say it will stay that way", Flake said.

While no big name has officially stepped forward yet to say such a run is definitely in the works, one Republican senator thinks a member of the GOP should toss his or her proverbial hat in the ring in the 2020 primary.

Asked if he thought another Mr. Trump should receive a primary challenge, Mr. Flake replied, "Yes, I do". Those who have expressed admiration for free trade, for supply-side economics ought to support this bill as well. Jeff Flake on Sunday said President Trump needs a 2020 challenge from someone who holds Flake's traditional conservative views.

The National reported that US President Donald Trump's new tariffs targeting steel and aluminium imports by 25 and 10 % were anticipated by UAE's aluminium companies but could have adverse effects on America's own auto industry. The president rolled out the tariffs Thursday, extending an initial exemption to Canada and Mexico while raising the possibility of exemptions for other countries that renegotiate their trade policies with the United States.

"I think we're going completely the wrong direction", Flake said.

He said it's tough to make the case that the Republican Party is still the party of free trade. "And so we need to trade".

But Flake maintained that tariffs will make things worse, not better, for Americans and the USA economy.
