WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Republican Senator Jeff Flake said on Thursday he would introduce a law to nullify President Donald Trump’s aluminium and steel tariffs, which Trump finalised in a proclamation earlier in the day.

The Republican chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, Orrin Hatch, also criticized the tariffs but said he would work with the White House to “mitigate the damage.”
