    The official said Brazil's comments and policies over the last few weeks showed that Bolsonaro did not intend to respect obligations on climate change and also did not want to commit on concrete proposals to maintain biodiversity French President Emmanuel Macron believes his Brazilian counterpart Jair Bolsonaro lied to him on Brazil's stance on climate change, and France will now block a trade deal between the EU and South American nations. "Given the attitude of Brazil over the last weeks, the president can only conclude that President Bolsonaro lied to him at the Osaka [G20] summit [in June]," a French...

    Chinese President Xi came to the summit with serious economic and political challenges domestically. President Trump was in a stronger negotiation position. So what happened? U.S. President Trump and Chinese President Xi held their highly anticipated summit at the Group of 20 meeting in Osaka, Japan on Saturday. Was it a successful meeting? That depends on whom you ask. On the surface, the outcome of the summit is positive. Both countries called a truce on the trade war, so there won’t be further deterioration of trade relations between the two world’s largest economies for a while. Both sides also agreed...

He told reporters he would announce the results of the talks at a news conference later Saturday.

    **SNIP** Negotiators known as sherpas were stuck working into the small hours of Saturday morning, trying frantically to find wording that both climate sceptics and those looking for strong commitments could agree on. **SNIP** And China, one of the world's top emitters, joined France and the United Nations to issue its own statement, with Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi saying countries must "strengthen our action." "All countries must remain firm in their confidence and deliver on the commitments in the Paris agreement," Wang added. But the divisions are unlikely to disappear soon, and the issue may prove even harder to...

    President Donald Trump on Saturday said Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raids will continue. He made the announcement from the G20 Summit in Japan, while discussing immigration. “We will be removing large numbers of people … starting in a week after, you know, sometime after July 4th,” Trump said.On Friday night, a California judge struck down President Trump's national emergency declaration that was used for him to reallocate military funds to build the border wall. "We're immediately appealing it and we think we'll win the appeal," Trump said at a press conference. "There was no reason that that should have happened.”Last...

    The U.S. and China will resume trade talks following a meeting between President Donald Trump and Chinese dictator Xi Jinping. “We had a very good meeting with President Xi of China,” Trump said following an 80 minute meeting with Xi Saturday morning in Japan. “Excellent, I would say excellent.” Trump added that the trade talks are “right back on track.” The U.S. agreed not to raise additional tariffs on China while the talks resume, according to Chinese officials. But the U.S. has not agreed to take down the tariffs already in place, something China had been saying was a precondition...

On Tuesday, the president managed to boost the stock market just by tweeting a message of encouragement: He says he and Chinese President Xi Jinping will have an “extended” meeting at the upcoming G-20 meeting in Japan next week. “Had a very good telephone conversation with President Xi of China.

    President Trump is now playing with Chairman Xi like a mouse in a maze. Trump wants to go to the full confrontation position. Donald J Trump has been talking about this for thirty years. Additionally, for the past two years he has strategically laid the groundwork and aligned the allies needed for this final confrontation. President Trump is looking for an excuse to apply the scale of tariffs on China that will crush their U.S. export business – and – force them into massive state subsidies to retain their manufacturing model such that they will have to retract from preexisting...

    President Trump threatened more tariffs on Chinese imports if President Xi Jinping is not at this month’s G-20 meeting. The president previously threatened to put levies on another $300 billion in Chinese goods if an agreement is not reached soon. President Donald Trump confirmed on Monday that additional tariffs on Chinese goods will be levied if Chinese President Xi Jinping does not attend this month’s G-20 meeting. When asked during a telephone interview if that means the new tariffs would go into effect immediately, Trump told CNBC’s Becky Quick, “Yes, it would.” The president previously threatened to put levies on...

    A nine foot sculpture has risen on the site of the World Trade Center terror attack of 9/11 in New York. It’s a Saudi Arabian candy monument inscribed with the words, “There is no god but Allah, and Mohammed is the prophet.” Those are the same words used by the 9/11 terrorists who blew up the Twin Towers at that site. Most of the terrorists were Saudis and the government itself has been implicated at high levels. The Saudi monument is one of the statues representing the 20 nations — the G20 — that artist Laurence Jenkell thought appropriate for...

    Washington veteran Michael Pillsbury has quietly become a key figure behind Trump's confrontational China policy, to the dismay of Beijing — and some fellow China experts. -- A day before President Donald Trump departed for the G-20 summit in Buenos Aires, several top officials gathered in the Oval Office to strategize about Trump's highly anticipated meeting there with China's president. Seated around Trump's Resolute Desk were Vice President Mike Pence, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross and U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer. On couches a few feet away were White House chief of staff John Kelly, Trump's son...

    It started with the Washington Post... The story (or narrative) from The Washington Post was about the "successful trade talks" between Donald Trump and Xi Peng in China. WaPo claimed that it wasn't true. They went on to say that the talks were all nonsense and confusion. They went ahead, quoting a former U.S. government official (unnamed, of course, but implied that he was an expert who was said to have been in contact with Chinese officials. This "expert" claimed that Beijing are “puzzled and irritated” by the Trump administration’s behavior, and widespread confusion across media claiming the 'truce' as...

    WASHINGTON/SHANGHAI—U.S. President Donald Trump said on Dec. 3, that China had agreed to cut import tariffs on American-made cars, a potential boon for automakers including Tesla Inc and BMW who manufacture in the United States for export to China. Trump, fresh from agreeing on a 90-day cease-fire in his trade war with China at the meeting of the G20, said on Twitter that “China has agreed to reduce and remove tariffs on cars coming into China from the U.S. Currently the tariff is 40%.” The move, if realized, would bolster U.S. car manufacturers who were hit hard when China ramped...

    White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow said on Monday the Trump administration will end subsidies for electric cars and renewable energy sources, Reuters reports. Kudlow said he expected subsidies for electric cars would end by 2020 or 2021, according to the report. The remarks were made in response to a question about what the administration would do about General Motors' plans to layoff 15,000 people and shutter five plants across North America. The company's plans have sparked outrage in Washington from both parties. Trump last week floated cutting GM's subsidies for electric vehicles and raising auto tariffs to punish the...

    <p>BUENOS AIRES, Argentina -- U.S. President Donald Trump says he will shortly be providing formal notice to Congress that he will terminate the North American Free Trade Agreement, giving lawmakers six months to approve the replacement he recently signed. Speaking to reporters aboard Air Force One while returning to Washington from Argentina, Trump says: “I will be formally terminating NAFTA shortly.” Seeking to gain leverage with skeptical lawmakers to approve the revised trade pact, Trump says Congress “will have a choice” as it considers the agreement he signed with the leaders of Mexico and Canada on Friday during the Group of 20 summit. He says they can choose between the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement or “pre-NAFTA, which works very well.” Trump has made renegotiating NAFTA a centerpiece of his presidency.</p>

    The agreement reached by President Trump and President Xi Jinping of China to effectively pause their trade war and work toward a pact appears to be aimed at giving the two leaders some political breathing room after an escalating fight has begun inflicting economic damage on both sides of the Pacific. The temporary truce, forged over a working dinner on Saturday night in Buenos Aires, does little to resolve the deep differences between the two nations and is more a political agreement than a substantive one. Both sides immediately positioned the cease-fire as a domestic victory while staking out areas...

    The G-20 summit in Argentina was supposed to be part of the carefully choreographed diplomatic dance between two of the world’s most powerful leaders. Instead, Russia’s aggressive action against Ukraine prompted President Donald Trump to cancel a planned meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, leaving Putin filling his summit dance card with other partners, Newsmax reported. Putin met instead with Turkish President Recip Erdogan, who used the time to try to convince Putin to hold a summit on the situation in Syria’s Idlib province, where Russia-based Syrian forces are slowly squeezing the last pockets of resistance, Reuters reported. Putin also...

    Winning: As the usual suspects pick apart the high-profile meeting between POTUS Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping at the G-20 summit in Buenos Aries on Saturday, there were definitely some positive things — for both countries — that came out of it. Already Western pundits and commentators are downplaying what was discussed and, more importantly, what was agreed upon as little more than a reprieve: In exchange for POTUS holding off imposing 25-percent tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods come January 1, Beijing agreed to immediately begin “not yet agreed upon, but very substantial” amount of...
