We need more Republicans speaking out against what Trump is doing to his their own constituents. They haven’t spoken out more forcefully in the past because they are afraid of his voters.

His ‘policies’ will lead to a recession which will cost Republicans control of the Senate and lose them the presidential race in 2020:
Senate Republicans expressed growing concern Tuesday that President Trump’s escalating trade war with China is hurting their constituents in rural America, ratcheting up tension between the White House and Congress on a signature issue.

“I’m not sure if you talk to him face to face, he hears everything you say,” said Senate Finance Committee Chairman Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa), who has emerged as one of Trump’s chief critics on trade and who said he planned to write to the president to explain farmers’ concerns.
