QUOTE :
In footage reportedly shot in London last summer during a dinner with far-right European nationalists, Mr Bannon said Breitbart was in “tough financial shape” after seeing advertising revenues plummet "90 per cent".

He credited the slump to work done by campaign group Sleeping Giants, which pressures companies into cutting ties with media it deems to be racist or sexist.

Trump's comments become part of Huawei case in Canada


Last week, Meng’s lawyers also said they were suing the Canadian government, its border agency and federal police, with allegations she was detained, searched and interrogated for three hours in violation of her constitutional rights.

The British Columbia Supreme Court Justice Heather J. Holmes set Meng’s next court date for May 8. Peck said her team plans to discuss with prosecutors what applications will be brought before that appearance.

China has canceled Canadian agribusiness Richardson International Ltd’s registration to ship canola to China, in the latest sign of tensions between Ottawa and Beijing.

Should Britain enter Brexit without any tariffs?


_eu-imposed trade remedies would generally be scrapped unless British firms have more than a 1% share of the domestic market for the product in question. Britons could look forward to sweetcorn from Thailand becoming 10% cheaper than it would otherwise be, if an eu tariff on the crop is cut. On February 26th the Financial Times reported that the government had agreed to set tariffs on certain industrial goods to nil if Britain leaves with no deal.__

Overall, Britons would almost certainly pay more for imports in the event of no-deal, because a large depreciation of sterling would occur.

Yet in a world where services trade matters as much as goods, 21st-century Peelites focus on reducing non-tariff barriers, such as by harmonising regulations and standards. Quitting the world’s largest trading bloc and aspiring to be a beacon of free trade are incompatible goals.

President Trump Asks China to Remove Tariffs on U.S. Imports Amid Trade Talks
 

«Progress» in trade talks between US' Trump and China's Jinping


Speaking to reporters at an Oval Office meeting with Chinese Vice Premier Liu He, Drumpf said a “final agreement” had been worked out between the two countries on currency manipulation, but he offered no details.

"Ultimately, I think the biggest decisions and some even smaller decisions will be made by President Xi and myself,” he said. “I think President Xi and I will work out the final points. Perhaps and perhaps not."

China and US about to outline agreement to end trade war


As officials hold high level talks on Thursday and Friday in Washington, they remain far apart on demands made by U.S. President Donald Drumpf's administration for structural changes to China's economy.

Negotiators are drawing up six memorandums of understanding on structural issues: forced technology transfer and cyber theft, intellectual property rights, services, currency, agriculture and non-tariff barriers to trade, according to two sources familiar with the progress of the talks.

One source cautioned that the talks could still end in failure. But the work on the MOUs was a significant step in getting China to sign up both to broad principles and to specific commitments on key issues, he said.

Farmers brace themselves for No-Deal Brexit


Ms Batters told Sophy Ridge on Sunday the impact of a no-deal Brexit on food and agriculture would be "huge", with 95% of animal medicines and vaccines coming across the Channel from the EU.

"For animals and products we would have a trade embargo, we would be on third-party, favoured nation status so we could be carved out for six months or longer - organics could be out for nine months or longer.

The union president said it could be possible to feed Britons with produce grown in the UK, but admitted there were likely to be problems getting enough workers to pick fruit and vegetables.

A job that was mostly done by migrants, which will now be kept out, thanks to some narrow-minded Brexiters. Hooray! Now go pick your fruits yourselves!

Meeting between #US' president Donald #Trump and #China's Xi #Jinping ahead


The meeting would take place after a summit between Drumpf and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and just before the March 2 deadline for a U.S.-China trade deal. However, the U.S. is concerned about the optics of a deal being announced on Chinese soil. The U.S. also wants prior commitments from China. Allies like Japan and South Korea are also worried about back-to-back meetings with nondemocratic leaders and would want to be briefed afterward.

Drumpf tweeted on Thursday the meetings in Washington are going well, adding: "China's representatives and I are trying to do a complete deal, leaving NOTHING unresolved on the table." However, he noted that a deal will not be struc... Show more...
 

Harley Davidson Inc. revenue broke down due to trade war policy


Earnings per share on a GAAP basis were zero in the fourth quarter, the Milwaukee-based manufacturer said in a statement Tuesday. Excluding restructuring and tariff costs, profit was 17 cents a share, missing analysts’ average estimate for 29 cents.

“2019 we expect to be another difficult year until major initiatives like More Roads start kicking in,” Levatich said in an interview, referring to a turnaround plan unveiled last year. “Everything is angled at that core issue of building riders in the U.S. and leveraging growth opportunities we have in the near term and internationally.”

US Farmers Continue to Like President Trump – ‘The Smart People’ Hardest Hit
 

#Trump - not the man to call for motivational services


The truth is, for the past two years, American family farmers have taken the brunt of the administration’s trade wars. Retaliatory tariffs, lost trade relationships and unstable markets have pushed the American farm economy to its brink. In fact, the majority of farms have earned negative farm income in recent years, and many are being forced to sell the farm. The president must right the ship immediately, as farmers can no longer afford to hold out hope for “the greatest harvest.”

Rather than work with our top trading partners like Canada, Mexico, Japan and the European Union to address common grievances with China, we’ve offended all of our allies. Not only has this ruined positive trading relationships with trade allies, it has weakened our leverage to deal with the world’s shared trade aggressor, China.

A statement from the US Trade Representative said the talks "focused on China's pledge to purchase a substantial amount of agricultural, energy, manufactured, and other products and services from the United States".

#China expects #US's readiness to a compromise


U.S. and Chinese officials are conducting talks in Beijing, their first since U.S. President Donald Drumpf and Chinese President Xi Jinping agreed to a 90-day truce in a trade war that has roiled global financial markets.

"However, it has also made it clear that it will not seek a solution to the trade frictions by making unreasonable concessions, and any agreement has to involve give and take from both sides," it said.

“While we are focused on ongoing operations, Acting Secretary Shanahan told the team to remember China, China, China,” an anonymous defence official was quoted as saying.

Of course there are no other strategic interests beside China, it all has to focused on China. Never forget about China, I dare you!

The national defence strategy, released by Mattis in January last year, describes China as “a strategic competitor” that “will continue to pursue a military modernisation program that seeks Indo-Pacific regional hegemony in the near term and displacement of the United States to achieve global pre-eminence in the future”.

He told the audience that “there are no such things as fair competitions ... Show more...

#US regulators to assemble amid concerns on slowing market growth


Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin will host the call with the president’s Working Group on Financial Markets, known colloquially as the “Plunge Protection Team.”

You'd better get something done, #Mnuchin, or your country's economy is going down, down, down.

Wall Street is also closely following reports that Drumpf has privately discussed the possibility of firing Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell. Mnuchin said on Saturday that Drumpf told him he had “never suggested firing” #Powell.

#Trump to attend #Davos, #Switzerland a second time for World Economic Forum


This will mark the second year President Drumpf will attend Davos. The president's attendance last year surprised many considering his "America First" platform, which seems to conflict with Davos' mission of promoting dialogue and cooperation between governments in an era of globalization.

I'm surprised as well. What may be his intentions? Negotiating further new deals that won't differ that much from their previous deals? Could be a point; otherwise, I wouldn't understand his intentions.

On #Xi #Jinping's 40th anniversary speech


“No one is in a position to dictate to the Chinese people what should or should not be done,” Xi said in a speech marking the 40th anniversary of the opening up of the Chinese economy. “We must resolutely reform what should and can be changed, we must resolutely not reform what shouldn’t and can’t be changed.”

Unfortunately, he is right about his first sentence. The entire Western world relies on China and its inhumane working conditions which pushes the prices down and makes China indispensable.

On 18 December 1978, the then leader, Deng Xiaoping, opened a meeting that officially initiated China’s transition from a command economy, dominated by old-style Maoist communism, to a market economy, or “socialism with Chinese characteristics”.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed down 800 points (3.1 percent) for the day, almost entirely in response to Drumpf brandishing his trade-warrior regalia by saying that trade amounts to foreigners “raid [ing]the great wealth of our Nation.”

Well done, Mr. President, you're a gift to the American economy. Who else could single-handedly tear down the Dow Jones Industrial Average, only tweeting once. This is a significant and tremendous achievement. Maybe not for the American society. but at least for you.

#Trump doesn't seem to know what the plan with China is


In a statement, the White House press secretary said Beijing will agree to purchase "a not yet agreed upon, but very substantial" amount of U.S. agricultural, energy, industrial and other products in order "to reduce the trade imbalance between our two countries."
During the talks at the G-20 meeting, the two superpowers agreed to delay additional taxes on each other's goods for the next 90 days — during which time they will try to overcome difficult differences including "forced technology transfer, intellectual property protection, non-tariff barriers, cyber intrusions and cyber theft.

Surely, Donnie didn't even read what the plan was, but only boasted about what he has done, or what was done by his aides and ministers.

Trump lowers tariffs on US cars exports in China


"The Business Roundtable is very encouraged by the result of this weekend’s talks between President Drumpf and President Xi. We are hopeful this will lead to both important reforms in China and a de-escalation in trade tensions between the U.S. and China," said the group, which represents the heads of top corporations.

It's good to hear that he has put aside one of his protectionist measurements, although this might have also been urged after GM has rationalised some of its jobs, and by some I mean the more than 55,000 jobs they have cancelled, putting many people into the unemployment. Thus, Donnie was also a little bit too late, he can only save the rest of them.

The Drumpf administration expressed confidence ahead of the meeting. “There’s a good possibility we can make a deal,” Larry Kudlow, Drumpf’s top economic adviser, told reporters on Tuesday, adding that “things have been moving very slowly between the two countries.” National Security Adviser John #Bolton noted Drumpf and Xi have a good relationship, but said each would firmly represent their country’s interests in Argentina.

For how long have they been telling us this for now? It must have been since the first tariffs took effect. So far, they weren't able to make it, but still, they pretend to be confident. Let's see where this is going, what else could we do?

Drumpf said in the interview that could include tariffs on Apple products imported from China, including iPhones and laptops. Apple's stock fell 1.5% in after-hours trading, erasing earlier gains from the day.
[...]
The tariffs have drawn complaints from American businesses, who are responsible for paying the import duties. It's also spurred concerns about renewed inflation, just as the Federal Reserve is set to raise interest rates in December.

Whatever Donnie touches, it instantly turns into great shit that will only gain complaints from those who are consciously enough to see reality where the Trumpists see joy and glory.
