U.S. Senate not likely to undo steel, aluminium tariffs - McConnell

Reuters  |  WASHINGTON 

(Reuters) - The most powerful lawmaker in the U.S. Senate on Tuesday threw cold water on the prospect that the chamber will pass legislation rewriting or even ending tariffs that put on and aluminium imports last week.

"The administration has all control. The thought that the would sign a bill that would undo actions he's taken strikes me as remote at best," told reporters. "I think it's highly unlikely we'd be dealing with that in a legislative way. That is not to say there is not a lot of concern in the Republican conference about this issue of tariffs."
