On Politics: Trump Does Not Want Military Clash With Iran

The Trump administration has all but snuffed out the sales of Huawei, the Chinese tech giant, in the United States. But now that Washington has announced restrictions on the company’s access to American technology, it has directly targeted Huawei’s ability to do business anywhere in the world.

Mr. Trump’s tariffs, which increased to 25 percent on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods last week and could extend to an additional $300 billion of imports, could increase prices in the United States. But a Federal Reserve governor has said the central bank could use the inflation to its advantage.

Revenues were mixed in 2018 at some of Mr. Trump’s major properties — from Mar-a-Lago to the Trump International Hotel in Washington — at a time when the Trump family faced a barrage of scrutiny from government investigators.

As he enters his re-election campaign, Mr. Trump, through his appointment of judges who oppose abortion rights and his graphic language, is taking a stance on abortion that evangelicals can embrace.

With grisly claims that Democrats are “the party of death,” Republicans have aggressively reset the terms of the debate on abortion, forcing Democrats to reassess how they combat misinformation and thwart attacks that portray the entire party as extremist.
