Corker, a Tennessee Republican and chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said he and the president had a lengthy, "heartfelt" conversation about the legislation.
A group of senators are crafting a plan that would claw back some of President Donald Trump's authority to enact sweeping tariffs and other trade policies that many Republicans and other free-trade supporters believe would result in lasting damage to the United States economy. It is not a solicitation to make any exchange in commodities, securities or other financial instruments. John Cornyn, the second-ranking Republican in the chamber, told reporters.

Corker also expressed concern that because Trump is so heavily invested in the tariffs, rebuking him in such a way could be hard for those in a political bind. He warned that if they didn't bear fruit, he and his supporters "fully expect" to continue pushing their petition.
