    For a profile in courage, consider a very significant move by the Trump administration this week in defense of Muslims. Just days before taking up new trade talks with China, the administration announced a dramatic stand in defense of up to 2 million Chinese Muslims in concentration camps and against companies that are using their technology to spy on the Chinese in their daily lives. Not that I expect the media to give the president and his administration points for defending the religious liberty of people around the world, but when you consider that the NBA couldn't find the character...

    China poured cold water on hopes for a trade deal, signaling it would retaliate against the U.S. threat to put Chinese tech companies on a blacklist, just two days ahead of the highly anticipated trade talks in Washington. Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang on Tuesday said “stay tuned,” when asked whether China would retaliate for the blacklist over alleged human rights violations against Muslim minorities. “We urge the U.S. to immediately correct its mistake, withdraw the relevant decision and stop interfering in China’s internal affairs,” Geng said at a news conference according to a transcript on the Foreign Ministry’s...

    In February 2017, the Washington Post’s Miller had the lead byline on a story based on leaks of Trump’s conversations with Australia’s prime minister and Mexico’s president. Six months later, the Post published the entire transcripts of both conversations in another Miller story. It was through such national security correspondents that anti-Trump sources -- intelligence officials -- pushed leaks of classified information and other tidbits intended to damage Trump into the media. There it merged with other anti-Trump currents in nearly every corner of the press, where it blossomed into Russiagate. After a nearly two-year investigation, the special counsel found...

    United States President Donald J. Trump alongside Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe announced on Sunday the framework for a massive trade deal between the two countries. While nothing has been signed yet, the potential agreement could bolster both economies by billions."We’ve been working on a deal with Japan for a long time. And we’ve agreed in principle," President Trump told the press at the G7 Summit."We successfully reached consensus with regard to the core elements related to agricultural and industrial trade," Abe told the media via a translator.

    During the course of his remaining five and a half years in office, President Trump will come to an understanding with China. Trade will be only a part of it. There will be established a concord, or state of agreement, between the two most powerful nations in the world. It will result in a peaceful 21st century. Trump will cut the part on trade sometime between now and the election fifteen months from now. He'll time it so he receives the maximum political benefit. It will ignite the markets, and the economy will assure him of re-election. The sticking point...

    China announced on Tuesday that it has suspended purchases of US agricultural products in retaliation for a “serious violation” of agreements between its President Xi Jinping and his counterpart Donald Trump. Trump’s announcement last week that the US would put a new 10 per cent tariff on US$300 billion worth of imports from China was “a serious violation of the consensus of the heads of state of the two countries”, state news agency Xinhua said in a report issued soon after midnight. China “has not ruled out import tariffs on US agricultural products purchased after August 3, and related Chinese...

    President Trump on Tuesday was set to hold a press conference with outgoing U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May, hours after he told her to “stick around” to complete a long-awaited trade deal with the U.S. "It's been an honor to work with you. I don't know what your timetable is, but... stick around, let's do this deal,” Trump told May at a breakfast meeting with senior leaders, according to The Sun. May will step down from Number 10 on Friday after intense criticism of her handling of Britain’s departure from the European Union. Britain can only make trade deals after...

    There are five things everyone should know about our trade war with China: 1. President Trump and his advisors will not back down. China’s expectation that the White House would give ground on issues already decided was profoundly mistaken. Their hope that Trump would prioritize his political desire for a buoyant stock market and booming economy over re-engineering our trade relationship with China was an error. 2. China’s senior official in the talks, Vice Premier Liu He, suggested that the changes his team demanded in terms already agreed to were “very natural.” He further said that the issues at stake...

    After the Trump administration rattled its trade-war sabers, China has responded by proceeding with its planned visit to the US. Over the weekend, the White House threatened to impose the rest of the proposed tariffs in Chinese goods totaling $200 billion when talks on a trade deal appeared to stall. Trump advisers accused China of reneging on previously agreed positions, prompting the threats to escalate the trade war: President TrumpÂ’s top economic advisers on Monday accused China of reneging on previous commitments to resolve a monthslong trade war and said Mr. Trump was prepared to prolong the standoff to...

    The diplomatic cable from Beijing arrived in Washington late on Friday night, with systematic edits to a nearly 150-page draft trade agreement that would blow up months of negotiations between the world’s two largest economies, according to three U.S. government sources and three private sector sources briefed on the talks. The document was riddled with reversals by China that undermined core U.S. demands, the sources told Reuters. In each of the seven chapters of the draft trade deal, China had deleted its commitments to change laws to resolve core complaints that caused the United States to launch a trade war:...

    It was not long ago, that taking guns into Canada, a nation with vast areas of wilderness, was uncomplicated and straightforward for U.S. citizens. There were virtually no restrictions on rifles and shotguns.The Canadian government required a simple seal on handguns to ensure they were not fired in Canada. If the seal were broken when the border was crossed going back into the United States, an explanation was in order. It had to be good. That changed in January of 2001. As more and more restrictions on the ownership of firearms have been pushed by leftists on both sides...

    There’s a language fight brewing with the LGBT lobby over the new trilateral agreement, and — what a surprise — it looks like far-left Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is behind it. The Hill reports that a group of 38 GOP lawmakers has sent a letter to President Trump over proposed trade deal language meant to prevent sex discrimination. The problem is that the language equates “sexual orientation and gender identity” (SOGI) with sex. “A trade agreement is no place for the adoption of social policy,” congressmen explained in a the letter dated November 16. “It is especially inappropriate and...

    U.S. stock markets surged Monday after President Trump announced the United States and Mexico have reached a preliminary trade agreement, which is part of the Trump administration’s effort to rewrite the North America Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Does this mean the new deal is a “huge” improvement over NAFTA? Not exactly.President Trump has called NAFTA the “worst” trade deal in history, but an analysis of key provisions finds limited improvements, some compromises, and quite a few flaws in this new agreement.The biggest improvement is with respect to digital trade, something missing from the NAFTA agreement established in 1990, when...
