Congress needs to reassert its constitutional authority over U.S. trade and tariff policies and expand its oversight of the executive branch, particularly as it relates to tariffs imposed by President Trump on questionable national security grounds.
The president has the power to impose tariffs due to national security concerns and there’s no need for Congress to interfere in how the executive branch carries out U.S. trade policy. Alternatively, it wouldn’t apply retroactively to Trump’s tariffs.
