The tussle over tariffs is the most significant political battle taking place in America right now – much broader than a dispute over steel and aluminum imports. It is the Republican Party's last stand against a total takeover by Donald Trump. As is often the case, Trump is more in line with his party's base than most of its leaders.It is a party skeptical about free markets.Republicans are now comfortable with government intervention, as long as it's for the right people.Finally, the GOP is being transformed into a party that is hostile to foreigners and foreign countries.Having transformed the party's views on issues as diverse as immigration, fiscal discipline, foreign policy and law enforcement, if Trump wins the battle over trade with his party, he will have won the war. The Republican Party will be history.
