Senior Chinese government delegation to visit U.S. for trade war talks

This story is being published by POLITICO as part of a content partnership with the South China Morning Post. It originally appeared on scmp.com on Aug. 16, 2018.

A senior Chinese delegation will visit the United States for trade talks later this month, the Commerce Ministry announced on Thursday.

A statement from the ministry said commerce vice-minister Wang Shouwen would lead the delegation that will meet U.S. Treasury undersecretary David Malpass to discuss “economic and trade issues between China and the U.S.”

The statement said China opposed unilateralism and trade protectionism.

Beijing and Washington started a tit-for-tat trade war in July, each imposing 25 per cent tariffs on the other side’s goods.

There have been no high-level talks between the two sides since July, but sources told the South China Morning Post that the two countries made unofficial contact late last month to explore the possibility of resuming talks.

Walker and Evers launch full-on campaign for governor a day after Wisconsin primary

GREEN BAY, Wis. — The first day in what could be one of the most competitive governor’s races in the nation saw Gov. Scott Walker and his newly minted general-election opponent, Tony Evers, crisscrossing the state, dropping major ad buys — and already taking off the gloves.

Walker, a Republican seeking his third term, embarked on an aggressive state fly-around on Wednesday, holding campaign-style events at manufacturing plants in Eau Claire, La Crosse, Wausau, Green Bay and Waukesha.

Inside a Green Bay-area factory, Walker held up the state’s economy as a major achievement, citing reduced taxes, low unemployment and job growth.

“We’ve turned things around, we’re moving forward not backwards, and now is not the time to turn around and go the wrong way,” he told a small crowd of workers and supporters.

But the governor, who made an unsuccessful bid for president in 2016, was quick to go negative Continue reading “Walker and Evers launch full-on campaign for governor a day after Wisconsin primary”

Bannon attempts his political comeback

Steve Bannon is attempting a political resurrection, launching a 25-person pro-Trump rapid-response and polling operation that is framing the midterms as an up-or-down vote on the president’s impeachment.

The former White House chief strategist has started Citizens for the American Republic, an outside political group that intends to advise surrogates, generate talking points, and flood the TV and radio airwaves ahead of a perilous midterm election.

As part of the campaign, Bannon — a former Hollywood producer who’s made several conservative films — will soon release a new documentary, “Trump@War,” which he plans to release in September on the two-year anniversary of Hillary Clinton’s now-infamous speech in which she referred to Trump supporters as “deplorables.” The slickly produced movie depicts the president in deeply flattering terms, casting him as a populist hero who’s followed through on his campaign promises and defied a long line of liberal critics.

It notably Continue reading “Bannon attempts his political comeback”

Some Republicans uneasy with Trump cutting off Brennan

Some Republican senators are panning President Donald Trump’s move to yank former CIA Director John Brennan’s security clearance, warning about the precedent it will set for national security.

Even as much of the GOP either backs the president or professes ignorance of Trump’s decision to revoke Brennan’s clearance and threaten future action against other critics, Sens. Bob Corker of Tennessee and Susan Collins of Maine said they disagreed with the move. Collins, a member of the Intelligence Committee, criticized Brennan as “far too political” but said that unless he disclosed classified information she didn’t “see the grounds" for revoking his security clearance.

“It’s unwise. Because generally, recently retired intelligence officials have a lot to contribute to the analysis that is being done,” Collins told reporters.

“Without having some kind of tangible reasons for doing so, which there may be that I’m not aware of, I don’t like it at all. Continue reading “Some Republicans uneasy with Trump cutting off Brennan”
