Democratic US Senator Elizabeth Warren, who has traded barbs with President Donald Trump, said on Sunday she's "not afraid of tariffs", but stopped short of endorsing his decision to launch steep tariffs on steel and aluminum.
Flake has not said he's running for president in 2020 but has refused to rule out such a move, even while acknowledging he probably couldn't get renominated for Senate in his home state.

Host Chuck Todd then asked Flake whether a Republican should challenge Trump, assuming he seeks the presidential nomination again. Trump praised Saccone as an "extraordinary person" who should "win easily", but most of the president's rambling campaign address focused on his own agenda, enemies, and entertainment value. "But that's not to say it will stay that way".

He added: "I also think that there will be an independent challenge, particularly if the Democrats insist on putting somebody up from the far left of the party". 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.
