You've got to wonder how many times Trump said “I’ve gotta free wang” in Oval Office meetings. Now he can’t explain it away so easily.

China reportedly bans foreign technology in its government and public offices

 

Beijing had ordered that all hardware and software be removed within three years, according to a report by the Financial Times. It cited brokerage firm China Securities as estimating that as many 30 million pieces of hardware would need to be replaced as a result.

Trump, Dems in tentative deal on North American trade pact
 

House Democrats have reached a tentative agreement with labor leaders and the White House over a rewrite of the U.S.-Mexico-Canada trade deal that has been a top priority for President Donald Trump
 

 House Democrats have reached a tentative agreement with labor leaders and the White House over a rewrite of the U.S.-Mexico-Canada trade deal that has been a top priority for President Donald Trump.
 

That's according to a Democratic aide not authorized to discuss the talks and granted anonymity.
 

Details still need to be finalized and the U.S. Trade Representative will need to submit the implementing legislation to Congress. No vote has been scheduled. The aide requested anonymity because the agreement is not official.

CHANGE: Firms Withdraw From China On Worsening Business Conditions. 

 

“A growing number of companies from Korea and other countries are pulling their production out of China due to worsening business conditions sparked by the prolonged tension between the United States and China coupled with rising operating costs there.

 

They are moving to the ASEAN market as the 10-nation economic bloc with its young population and cheap labor costs has been emerging as the world’s new manufacturing hub replacing the Chinese market.”

I think the only people who are shocked that Afghanistan is an unwinnable war might be Donald Rumsfeld and Dick Cheney.

 

The *entire* history of Afghanistan strongly suggested that nation building in Afghanistan wasn't going to work out well for the West or the Afghan people.

I wonder if this is solely about prisoner-swapping, or the Iranians are trying to lay a face-saving excuse for more substantial talks about other issues.

Russia, China propose easing N Korea sanctions, US says premature

 

Two countries argue that a relaxation of some sanctions would encourage North Korea to resume denuclearisation talks.

Ten bucks says one of the first three replies references "Trump putting children in cages."

 

Edit:

First one.  Democrats are nothing if predictable.

But the first one was better, since it quotes a number from the UNHRC that 1) was from 2015, and 2) was wrong in 2015.  :lol:

Using kennels instead of “cells,” “rooms,” or even “cages” is a nice touch.
