The Trump Presidency...

Do you want me to hight them for you?
Things the article says are definite:
1. Tariffs staying in place.
2. Supply chain remaining outside the US.
3. Made in China 2020 still the PRCs strategic priority.
4. PRC exports remaining strong despite US tariffs.

Things the article couches in terms of mere possibility:
1. Reduction of the US's trade deficit with the PRC (n.b. not overall trade deficit.)
2. Erm...
3. That's all, folks.

How about you try spitting instead of swallowing and we'll see where we can go from there?
 
Trump 2017: CHAIN MIGRATION must end now! Some people come in, and they bring their whole family with them, who can be truly evil. NOT ACCEPTABLE!

Trump 2018: ...except if it’s the missus’s parents. It’s in my own interests, so that’s fine.

Devin Nunes has got himself into a bit of bother having been taped talking about the Mueller investigation and protecting Trump regardless, Nunes was described as a useful as a bucket of warm spit on CNN last night.

Apparently the US deficit is now up to 20% that fiscal conservatism seems to be going well.

Fair play, he's making the bankruptcy and repossession industries great again.
 
Lies down in shock - this is today’s New York Times, which makes the Guardian look right of the Daily Wail.

It’s the second time this week they have had to grudgingly accept Trump’s economic policies are working. Protecting the US supply chain is a national security issue. We don’t get any objective analysis in the U.K. - it’s just a luvvie metropolitan media rant.

You appear to have linked to an article that, while it does indeed make mention of China, US and trade tarifs, it makes no mention of Trumps economic policies.

I'm sure its just a slight oversight on your part.

Can you please post a link to the article you outline?

Is your callsign a cover and are you really as thick as pig shit?
 
China can end the trade war by conceding defeat to Trump

A decent article. Apologies folks, not been to engaged in this thread as of late. My focus has been more on the upcoming mid term elections for the Senate and Representative here. The State elections are also very important as well.
I have been avoiding the media coverage of the midterms so far, in your opinion what results do you generally expect?

Both sides are claiming victory, but I am thinking a Blue wash/trickle. It all depends on what kind of candidates the Dems put forth. If they go the radical socialist route, they are screwed. If they have moderates they might make slight gains in the House. They do have a chance to lose in the Senate though. So all in a all just a muddle.

The State Primary is the 21st here. t. I am up in the air on who I want to send to Washington as our Senator. I am leaning towards John Barrasso still I would like this to end so I can stop getting all the propaganda in the damn mail.

If the Democrats make deep inroads could they manage to cripple Donny and his administration?

The Legislative branch has the power of the purse. Which would leave him using Executive powers to get things done, which are still considerable. However those actions can be undone by any successor. What he will have is the Supreme court stacked in his favor, which helps more than people realize.

As if a trade war with China, and renewed sanctions on Iran not enough, now Trump has doubled tariffs on Turkish steel and aluminium imports to the US.

This has made the Turkish Lita drop a further 16% and is NOT helping international trade houses at all .

This is cutting off your nose to spite your face.

I can’t post any Links as I’m sat on the sand in Hawaii. The only access I have to the outside world is wireless in the room and the paper extract from the New York Times. Unfortunately I’ve not got the copies from earlier in the week as they have been binned by the maid.

A little-noticed Trump rule would give $2.5 billion tax cut to big bank fat cats.

As Wall Street banks continue to enjoy record profits thanks to President Donald Trump’s $1.5 trillion tax scam, Trump’s Treasury Department—headed by former Goldman Sachs executive Steve Mnuchin—quietly moved to hand big banks yet another major gift on Wednesday by hiding a $2.5 billion tax cut in the fine print of an “esoteric” new rule proposal

As they were hashing out the details of their tax bill behind closed doors, Sirota notes, Republican lawmakers included a provision that prohibited businesses in the “financial services” sector from qualifying for the tax cut in an effort to counter “assertions that the bill could enrich big banks.”

But, at the direction of bank lobbyists, the Trump administration’s new rule asserts that “‘financial services’ don’t include banking,” thus allowing “hundreds of banks operating as S corporations—as well as their owners—[to] claim the tax cut,” Sirota writes.
