The Whitehouse on the President’s Working Dinner with China. Progress on Fentanyl & Trade

Washington, DC....The President of the United States, Donald J. Trump, and President Xi Jinping of China, have just concluded what both have said was a “highly successful meeting” between themselves and their most senior representatives in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Very importantly, President Xi, in a wonderful humanitarian gesture, has agreed to designate Fentanyl as a Controlled Substance, meaning that people selling Fentanyl to the United States will be subject to China’s maximum penalty under the law.




On Trade, President Trump has agreed that on January 1, 2019, he will leave the tariffs on $200 billion worth of product at the 10% rate, and not raise it to 25% at this time. China will agree to purchase a not yet agreed upon, but very substantial, amount of agricultural, energy, industrial, and other product from the United States to reduce the trade imbalance between our two countries. China has agreed to start purchasing agricultural product from our farmers immediately.

President Trump and President Xi have agreed to immediately begin negotiations on structural changes with respect to forced technology transfer, intellectual property protection, non-tariff barriers, cyber intrusions and cyber theft, services and agriculture. Both parties agree that they will endeavor to have this transaction completed within the next 90 days. If at the end of this period of time, the parties are unable to reach an agreement, the 10% tariffs will be raised to 25%.

It was also agreed that great progress has been made with respect to North Korea and that President Trump, together with President Xi, will strive, along with Chairman Kim Jong Un, to see a nuclear free Korean Peninsula. President Trump expressed his friendship and respect for Chairman Kim.

President Xi also stated that he is open to approving the previously unapproved Qualcomm-NXP deal should it again be presented to him.

President Trump stated: “This was an amazing and productive meeting with unlimited possibilities for both the United States and China. It is my great honor to be working with President Xi.”

So essentially Xi and Trump agreed to do nothing for 90 days and the stock market and both U.S. and China economies won't take a further tumble. Trump simply hit the pause button so his critics won't have more fodder, especially with GM announcing plant closing just this past week.

      HAHAHAHA LYING CROOKED RINO MUELLER HAHAHAHA
      Mueller Connected To Manafort, Podesta Brothers And Russian Front Group In The Ukraine… But No Recusal?

      The leader of the corrupt and criminal Special Counsel in Washington, Robert Mueller, is connected to Paul Manafort whom he is prosecuting.
      He is also connected to Manafort’s business partners in the Ukraine – the Podesta Brothers – who are connected to Hillary Clinton – and a Russian ‘foundation’ in the Ukraine labeled the Party of Regions.
      But, for some reason, only Manafort sits in solitary confinement?
      The Washington Examiner reported in July 2018 that –
      Tony Podesta, founder of the now-shuttered Podesta Group and brother to former Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, has been offered immunity by special counsel Robert Mueller to testify against former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort, according to a report.
      Fox News’ Tucker Carlson announced on his show Thursday evening that two separate sources confirmed the offer.
      “In other words, for a near identical crime, Bill and Hillary’s friend could escape and emerge completely unscathed while Paul Manafort may rot in jail. Only one of them made the mistake of chairing Donald Trump’s presidential campaign,” Carlson said.
      The Examiner continued –
      Manafort and Podesta’s firms worked together in a public relations campaign for the European Centre for a Modern Ukraine nonprofit, which was believed to be backed by the pro-Russian and oligarch-funded Ukrainian political group Party of Regions. Sources who spoke with NBC News in October said the Podesta Group became of significant interest because it may have violated the Foreign Agents Registration Act. FARA states Americans who lobby for foreign governments, leaders, or political parties must disclose their activities with the Justice Department.
      However, someone tipped off the creepy Podesta brothers, because just before the Mueller arrested Manafort, the Podesta Group filed a number of forms retroactively.
      Manafort was not so lucky, as he was arrested and charged by Mueller for not filing the exact same forms.
      In May of 2018, Judicial Watch released new documents from the U.S. Department of State showing the Podesta Group worked on behalf of the pro-Russia Ukrainian political group “Party of Regions.” The documents also showed longtime Obama and Clinton counselor John Podesta lobbied on behalf of his brother’s firm.
      But creepy John Podesta held a ‘get out of jail free’ card because he was Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager. To date the Podesta’s, even though they worked with Manafort in the Ukraine, have received no indictments or arrests and have remained relatively out of sight and probably are on an extended vacation.

      Tax Cut Bill
      Posted on: 2018-12-02 11:03:15   By: Anonymous
       
      The tax cut bill deferred, or no taxes for Ford, GM in building plants in Mexico.
      How does this create jobs in the US?

      How is this promises kept?

      When are you cult heads going to wake up?

        Trump is actually a big fentanyl advocate. He has it used at the White House to poison the stray cats.

        This footage shows the moment a mouse, desperate to jump onto a feeder, makes multiple attempts before finally succeeding. In the clip, the mouse can be seen climbing up onto a branch, assessing the distance between it and the feeder, and launching into a wide jump. It falls short a couple of times until one massive jump finally propels the persistent creature onto the feeder.
