Following a failed vote to advance “fast-track” trade authority in the House Friday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Tuesday said Congress is “not giving up” on trade, but would not commit to next steps or additional votes on an isolated Trade Promotion Authority measure. “Obviously there was a malfunction over in the House on Friday that we all watched with great interest and we’re not giving up,” McConnell said. “We still think there may be a path forward to get an achievement here that we’d like to get as well as the president.”
