Billionaire Koch brothers take on Trump over tariffs
Powerful US billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch are funding a multi-million dollar campaign against President Donald Trump's trade tariffs.
Three political groups backed by the brothers say they will use advertising, lobbying and grassroots campaigns to push the benefits of free trade.
