Trump, Senate Set To Battle Over Tariffs
Trump prepares to initiate tariffs on Mexican imports on Monday, June 10th. Graduated increases will take tariffs from 5% to 25% over 5 months - if Mexico doesn't help stop illegal immigration.

Can one be opposed to tariffs in general but understand why they may be helpful in the short term here? Schumer says Trump is bluffing. Democrats look to Facebook for $1 donors. And we share the reason they are doing this. A group calling themselves "Super Happy Fun America" is planning a "Straight Pride Parade" in Boston. Twiiter erupts. Many chuckle. Australia pays Al Gore $320k to conduct climate training. For that amount of money, you'd think they'd at least have him talk about how he invented the internet. House passes latest version of DREAM Act.
