Trump Lauds Potential North Korea Summit as 'Very Exciting for the World'

Trump administration considering tougher emissions regs for imports

While these statements create a hostile political environment, the sheer volume and subject matter of these divisive comments serve to "muddy the water" of legislative agendas and normalize the Trump presidency. He called Mueller's probe "an attack on our country in a true sense, an attack on what we all stand for".

His comments Monday came after US officials said they have confirmed that Kim is willing to discuss the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. Trump's rejection of the deal has rattled allies and raised questions at home about whether protectionism will impede US economic growth.

Soybeans, the second-most valuable US crop after corn, would be especially hard-hit - exports to China accounted for more than one-third of the oilseed's revenues a year ago. The U.S. sold about $130 billion in goods to China in 2017 and faces a potentially devastating hit if China responds in kind.

"Never said when an attack on Syria would take place", Trump tweeted. "Hopefully it will be a relationship that's much different than it's been for many, many years". He added that he doesn't blame China, but American leaders for creating a "lopsided" set of trade rules.

Sending out a message to his 50 million followers, Trump started by saying that he doesn't know when the USA will bomb Syria, but that it will happen. Currently, as Trump tweeted, China imposes 25 percent tariffs on American vehicles, and mandates that foreign companies form joint ventures with Chinese firms.

Investors across the globe are bracing for uncertain markets over an escalating trade dispute between the US and China.

President Donald Trump says he expects to meet with North Korea on its nuclear program in May or June.

Farm-state lawmakers said Thursday after a White House meeting with Trump that he had given that assignment to his trade representative, Robert Lighthizer, and his new chief economic adviser, Larry Kudlow. And he said that although the US hoped to avoid taking action, Trump "was not bluffing". He also has a gripe with Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, who owns the Washington Post newspaper, which the president accuses of posting fake news. So that will be very exciting, I think, for the world.

Trump's latest proposal intensified what was already shaping up to be the biggest trade battle in more than a half century.

Kim also presented his idea to urge U.S. President Donald Trump to normalize diplomatic relations and establish an embassy in Pyongyang. Rather than waiting weeks for the US tariffs to be implemented, Trump backed a plan by Robert Lighthizer, his trade representative, to seek the enhanced tariffs.
