West Wing Reads President Trump is Right on China, and Now is the Time for Congress to Act
President Trump is Right on China, and Now is the Time for Congress to Act
“President Trump understands that now is the time to hold China to account. For far too long China has repeatedly threatened U.S. economic and national security interests. Finally, we have a president who is serious about getting tough on China and fighting for reciprocal trade deals,” Bradley Blakeman writes in Fox News.
“In order to keep the pressure on China, now is the time for Democrats and Republicans in Congress to pass the trade agreement between the U.S., Canada and Mexico, (USMCA). There is no doubt that if House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., gave it her green light it would pass the House.”
InFox News, Sen. Mike Braun (R-IN) writes that Democrats’ absurd claims about Attorney General William Barr reveal a sad truth about President Obama’s Attorneys General Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch—and about Washington in general. “Democrats’ public vilification of Barr is a glimpse into how Holder’s ‘Fast and Furious’ scandal or Loretta Lynch’s tarmac summit with Bill Clinton might have played out without the air support of a breathless liberal media unwilling to portray Obama officials as anything but selfless public servants and Trump officials as anything but supervillains.”
Next month, the MISSION Act signed by President Trump “will enable VA to consolidate the department’s community care efforts into a single, simple-to-use program that will empower veterans with the ability to choose the health care providers they trust,”Secretary of Veterans Affairs Robert Wilkiewrites in Fox News. So what can veterans expect? “Less red tape, more satisfaction and predictability for patients, more efficiency for our clinicians, and better value for taxpayers.”
At the White House last week, “President Donald Trump announced his principles to solve a huge problem facing our healthcare system: surprise medical bills. Present at the event were victims of outrageously large, surprise bills and their family members,”Joe Grogan, Assistant to the President for Domestic Policy, writes in CNN. “Unlike Senator Bernie Sanders' Medicare for All legislation that would take away Americans' ability to choose their insurance and eliminate all private coverage, President Trump wants people to be able to keep insurance plans they like while no longer facing the issue of surprise medical bills.”
