Trump Calls Chinese Tariffs on American Cars 'Stupid'

Trump Calls Chinese Tariffs on American Cars 'Stupid'

The New York Times reported the Federal Bureau of Investigation just raided the office of Trump's longtime lawyer and problem-fixer Michael Cohen and secured records related to Cohen's $130,000 payment in the last month of the 2016 election to adult film star Stormy Daniels - as well as "emails, tax documents and business records", plus "communications between Mr. Trump and Mr. Cohen". The caravan had sparked furious criticism from Trump, followed days later by his National Guard border protection deployment plan.

Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey told a group of soldiers preparing to deploy from a Phoenix military base that their "mission is about providing manpower and resources" to support agencies on the border and denied that there was a political motive. "Many people have said, 'You should fire him.'" And he described the execution of the search warrant as a break-in: "They broke into the office of one of my personal attorneys", he said.

The US government is considering slapping imported cars with stricter emissions regulations, according to reports. Trump has called on Beijing to ease trade barriers "because it is the right thing to do".

However, last week a plan to implement the higher emissions standards on imported cars as a way of taxing them was discussed, despite the United States motor industry neither requesting or backing such a change.

On Meet the Press on Sunday, hard-line trade adviser Peter Navarro said Trump's threats were not "a negotiating tactic", and, of course, the president himself seems to be spoiling for a fight.

There is no end date for the deployment, Abbott said: "We may be in this for the long haul". "I think it's going to be a very exciting thing for the world".

As the economic saber-rattling shakes global markets, Trump said Monday he had a good relationship with China and with President Xi Jinping, but repeated his claim that China has been "taking advantage of the United States for many years".

It said "arming will be limited to circumstances that might require self-defence" but did not further define that.

We need to combat this trend by not focusing on the latest tweet but by examining the hard policy proposals and think of the implications Trump's public statements will have on America in the years to come.

El Paso Sector Chief Patrol Agent Aaron Hull said those troops are nowhere near deploying yet. They will be the first of an expected 250 Guard members from New Mexico to serve on the border.
