As Donald Trump fights tariff wars around the world, he's upended the usual politics of trade and put politicians from both parties in an awkward spot. Many 2020 Democrats are trying to out-tough the president on the trade fight with China, while Republicans who believe in lower tariffs are struggling to rein in the president's professed love of them.

Interviews include:

·      Richard Trumka, president of the AFL-CIO·      Lori Wallach, director of ‘Global Trade Watch’ at Public Citizen·      Sen Chuck Grassley (R-IA) ·      Sen. Sherrod Brown (R-OH) ·      Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH)
