US President Donald Trump has China on the ropes. Trump called the widening US–China tariff war ‘a little squabble’. But at the same time he stuck to his guns by ordering his administration to ready 25% duties on all remaining Chinese imports.

The next talk between the two leaders will most likely occur at the next G20 summit in June. Mr Trump has already described the impending talk as being a ‘fruitful’ one.
US President Donald Trump maintains that trade wars are good and easy to win. On the good side, he intends to use some of the billions of dollars in tariffs the US is collecting on Chinese imports to send US food aid to impoverished nations.
Trump remains committed to levelling the skewed trading relationship China has long enjoyed with the West. Even as his new round of tariffs are set to come into force, top level officials are continuing their negotiations for a mutually acceptable agreement.
The display of four nations combining efforts to challenge Beijing is certainly a new and interesting occurrence. Particularly when it has been just days since Trump threatened to increase tariffs on Chinese goods to 25%.

As Reuters reports, a 19 April letter from White House legal counsel Emmet Flood to Attorney General William Barr, also defended Trump’s right to prevent his advisers from testifying before congressional oversight probes into the Russia investigation:
Never underestimate the power of cheap money. The world’s most watched central bank put further rate rises on hold. And global stock markets boomed.
But Trump haters, who’d been dreaming of impeachment, are now pressing the obstruction angle.
However, US Attorney General William Barr won’t have a…ahem…bar of it.
In March alone, US border authorities arrested or turned back 100,000 illegal migrants along the Mexican border. Mexico itself repatriated some 15,000 illegal migrants over the past month.

Contrary to what many believe, the US federal government does not spend the bulk of its revenue on its military. Or even on politicians’ hefty paycheques.
