Ryan also wants fellow Republican Trump to consider other approaches before taking action. Trump said a formal announcement on the tariffs would be made next week.

“The speaker is hoping the president will consider the unintended consequences of this idea and look at other approaches before moving forward,” Ryan spokesman Doug Andres said in a statement.
