If it passes, the POTUS can raise tarrifs at will without consulting congress.

I have no idea if the POTUS already has this authority, but then again, neither does Donald!

"Canada, Mexico and the European Union (EU) have all hit back at U.S. tariffs by, among other things, filing formal complaints with the Geneva-based World Trade Organization (WTO), the arbiter of global trade."

Has any other country ever noticed that they are screwing The United States by charging higher tariffs than we do and that all we want are fair tariffs for both sides?

remember when Trump learned of the Canada dairy tariff & pretended that was some shocking thing that caused him to want his tariffs even though it had nothing to do with it

well, we have lots of tariffs to protect industries too as i'm sure Trump is equally ignorant of

Diary controls in Canada are downright tyrranical. I understand that some of it is for health reasons. The rest just drives up the cost to produce the diary and forces us to use tarrifs just too compete. The solution is for Canada too fix the system so it stops artificially inflating price

As of right now POTUS has power to raise tariffs only for national security threats ie Canada, Mexico, and E.U.

I wish Trudeau would just cut off all that steel and aluminum that the US airforce and navy needs.
