Trump wants to send up to 4000 troops to border

Trump wants to send up to 4000 troops to border

China earlier said no talks were ongoing.

Responding to Trump's Thursday action, China said it would counter U.S. protectionism "to the end, and at any cost", as a war of words over Trump's proposed tariffs on Chinese imports escalated.

Faith Leaders hope to meet with President Donald Trump this summer at a summit in Washington, DC.

"Lots of different options are available in terms of lawful and appropriate ways to utilize the National Guard and other state and federal resources", the official said.

Critics of the plan characterize it as a political stunt, an effort to give the appearance of strong border security to appease the President's frustration with the difficulties of getting his border wall and other aggressive immigration priorities through Congress.

North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum says he will send National Guard troops to the U.S.

"We've already lost the trade war".

That could spell a long deployment, with costs that Trump admitted the White House was still "looking at".

"There is extensive and extreme victimization of those making the journey north with coyotes/smugglers in general", a White House official told Fox News on Thursday. He dismissed the notion that a trade war is inevitable, stressing that it's just a proposal to raise US tariffs on an additional $100 billion worth of Chinese goods. The U.S. has a $38 billion trade surplus in services.

Kudlow started his job as director of the national economic council this week.

"What this is is an attempt to right some of the wrongs with respect to China", he said.


Earlier this week, the United States announced plans for new tariffs on $50 billion worth of Chinese goods, claiming that China is stealing U.S. intellectual property.

China's Commerce Ministry spokesman, Gao Feng, has called the USA action "extremely mistaken" and unjustified, adding that the spat was a struggle between unilateralism and multilateralism.

New comments from President Trump on voter fraud, and allegations of rapists crossing the border, after literally throwing his script in the air.

"Stop drugs!" Trump tweeted Thursday morning. People are surprised, I'm not!

Earlier Thursday, Ronald Vitiello, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection's acting deputy commissioner, cautioned against a rushed deployment.

A year later, the data suggests that the Trump Effect lasted barely seven months and that undocumented immigrants are entering the country at a rate similar to 2014-2016, before he ran for president on an anti-immigration platform.

The U.S.is nearly entirely dependent on China, he explained, for rare earth metals "that play crucial roles in everything from smart phones to electric auto motors, hard drives, wind turbines, military radar, smart bombs, laser guidance, and more".

"I'm not saying there won't be a little pain, but the market has gone up 40 percent, 42 percent so we might lose a little bit of it". China responded within hours by announcing plans for $50 billion worth of tariffs on USA exports.

The President took to Twitter and a radio interview to make his case after he threatened tariffs on $100 billion more in Chinese goods.

The move comes a day after China issued a $50 billion list of USA goods including soybeans and small aircraft for possible tariff hikes in an escalating and potentially damaging dispute.

He's also instructed his secretary of agriculture "to implement a plan to protect our farmers and agricultural interests".
