Under our Constitution, does the president or the legislative branch have the power to declare a tariff, which is a type of tax? President Trump has received some flak lately for calling for tariffs against China because of what he says is their unfair-to-us trade practices. Matt Spalding is a Constitutional scholar and Hillsdale College leader in its Washington, D. C. branch. Formerly with the Heritage Foundation, Matt Spalding edited the massive “The Heritage Guide to the Constitution.” Matt Spalding joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss tariffs and the Constitution. www.hillsdale.edu

    Dr. John Fea, Head of the History Department of Messiah College, wrote on his blog: “Newcombe is a Christian nationalist,* but I have appreciated his willingness to give me time on his show….He is a hospitable host and, unlike other radio hosts who share his political and religious views, he allows his guests to speak…. I was pleased with the program. Newcombe was a true gentleman and we disagreed civilly. We need to have more conversations like this.” *JN: I believe America has Christian origins as a nation and thus allows freedom for all.
