NEC Chairman Larry Kudlow Discusses USMCA and U.S-China “Phase One” Trade Deal…

Interesting:  Tuesday budget vote. Wednesday Impeachment vote. Thursday USMCA vote.

National Economic Council Chairman Larry Kudlow appears with Maria Bartiromo to discuss the ratification of the USMCA and the U.S-China “phase one” trade deal.


USTR Lighthizer appeared on CBS to discuss the China agreement, he goes into more detail. That conversation is coming next.

    Trump’s administration has been an ongoing lesson in negotiating and fighting. The rest of the R’s should take note.

      Apparently, Trump doesn’t take a >bribe like many other American politicians; both Republicans and >Democrats. … … Hopefully, MAGA will join with some of the other short promises made in the United States; ~ ‘Duty. Honor. Country.’ ~ ‘Semper Fidelis.’ ~ ‘In God We Trust.’ +
      “I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”.

      …… Would it be too much to ask of the Judges, Lawyers, Policing Agents and all the legal personnel to remember this promise: =
      “I swear by Almighty God that I will tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.”

        Why did you omit “under God” from your Pledge of Allegiance?


        • GGHD says:

          Kevin, it was an omission of carelessness. I apologize. FIY, I’m a member of the Knights of Columbus (A Catholic organization): Wikipedia: =

          “In 1951, the Knights of Columbus, the world’s largest Catholic fraternal service organization, also began including the words “under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance.[31] In New York City, on April 30, 1951, the board of directors of the Knights of Columbus adopted a resolution to amend the text of their Pledge of Allegiance at the opening of each of the meetings of the 800 Fourth Degree Assemblies of the Knights of Columbus by addition of the words “under God” after the words “one nation.”
          … …Over the next two years, the idea spread throughout Knights of Columbus organizations nationwide. On August 21, 1952, the Supreme Council of the Knights of Columbus at its annual meeting adopted a resolution urging that the change be made universal, and copies of this resolution were sent to the President, the Vice President (as Presiding Officer of the Senate), and the Speaker of the House of Representatives. The National Fraternal Congress meeting in Boston on September 24, 1952, adopted a similar resolution upon the recommendation of its president, Supreme Knight Luke E. Hart. Several State Fraternal Congresses acted likewise almost immediately thereafter.
          … … This campaign led to several official attempts to prompt Congress to adopt the Knights of Columbus policy for the entire nation. These attempts were eventually a success.”
          There was a large effort by ALL Americans of all faiths to include “Under God” in the Pledge. The entire section in Wikipedia is a short read; it’s worth reading about a time period, when the vast majority of Americans believed in a God in Heaven. … I just included the part about the Knights of Columbus in this comment. The godly Pledge of Allegiance: =

          “I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America; and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

    Nothing new to report as we only have the USTR fact sheet and the PRC statement. No joint announcement, no draft agreement, no signing date, a few more details. I am increasingly convinced neither side wants a deal.

    The US, as Lighthizer explained is trying to work with the PRC to bridge the vast divide between a free/fair market system and a planned command and control economy who conjure up data from the party handbook not reality.

    Lighthizer deserves a medal for taking on this task. The entire process so far is one for the history books.

    As I’ve said, the ball is in China’s court. USA 💯 PRC 0.

      DJT’s negotiating m.o., in a nutshell;
      “FIRST I offer you a sincere win/win deal.
      If you refuse that, I switch to “Heads I win, tails you lose” and can be merciless, without ANY feelings of guilt, because I offered you a FAIR deal, and you turned it down.”

      EU’s turn is coming, and I look forward with anticipation.

      Just as I actually have more animosity and contempt for Republicons, than I do for Democrats, I have more animosity to EU, than I do to China.

      Not that I love Democrats or China, but at least they are open adversaries. Better than the guy who calls you “friend”, puts his arm on your shoulder, in order to shiv you between the ribs!

    Campaigning, DJT said we aren’t going to be the “stupid people anymore” and “political hacks” were used by past Presidents to negotiate bad trade deals.This is how America wins by having killers negotiate instead of incompetent Globalist political donors appointed by the Uniparty sell outs.


  8. Kerry Gimbel says:

    Gee it’s amazing what gets accomplished when you actually negotiate and negotiate in the interest of your own country. And have people who are actually good at it to do it. And amazing concept and of course, it actually works!


  9. MfM says:

    I like Kudlow. He always seems like such a ‘Happy Warrior’ even keeled, intelligent and articulate.

    That’s why I was so surprised that he got so angry after the G20 in Canada and what Trudeau did after Trump left. Then he had the heart scare the next day. I’m so glad he’s still involved and looks to be really enjoying himself.

    Lighthaiser. Who is he? Never heard of him before. Nice name. Where has this guy been until now? In a lonely light house? With a laser?

    But I do remember Mr. Chertoff in a previous administration, whose name sounded like a man who had his shirt off. Really. No Schiff! (Some ladies find shirtless men attractive.) During that time Putin then posted photos of himself in the media with his shirt off, bare-chested, posed on a horse – literally. Do you remember that?

    Trump gives everyone a chance to prove themselves. Remember Scaramucci? How long did he last?
    Gone, goodbye. Good luck and farewell. “You’re FIRED”.
    His resume: “I worked for Trump for a few days.”

    Trump thinks like a highly effective CEO, and he IS one. The swamp thinks: We must rid ourselves of this guy, by any means, by hook or by crook! Who the hell does this guy think he IS!?! To spoil OUR party? OUR party? Which party is that? 😉

    It would be so much easier to forget the impeachment, and just have a nice, old fashioned crucifixion. Crucify him! Crucify him!

    Nah. That’s too old fashioned. Besides, doing that might make Trump a martyr, and we won’t be able to make a buck on him being a martyr. Especially if we couldn’t kill him..

    Easter / Passover is coming. Crucifixion time .Stay tuned to your local channel… Make popcorn.

    One Jesus was enough. Trump will survive.
