Beijing, April 2, 2017: The Chinese government on Sunday urged US President Donald Trump to analyse the trade deficit with Beijing on the basis of international standards, after he signed two executive orders to combat trade abuses of other countries.

on Friday, Trump ordered the Commerce Department to carry out what he called the first major review of the US trade with the world to uncover practices that harm US workers and factories, which was seen as a clear message to China, which leads the list of countries having a large trade deficit with the US, Efe news reported.

“Both countries are well aware of the reality, the cause and possible impact of the US trade deficit with China,” China’s Ministry of commerce said in a statement in response to Trump’s decision.

The move came just a week before his first face-to-face meeting with the Chinese President Xi Jinping at his house in Mar-a-Lago, Florida, on April 6 and 7, which, according to Trump, is going to be very difficult.

Despite the US President’s remarks, the Chinese authorities are striving to highlight the advantages of the relationship between the two countries.

“Sino-US trade is highly complementary and has mutual benefits,” the statement said.

It also recalled that the world’s two largest economies have a special mission to promote global trade and investment, as well as global economic prosperity.

China is willing to work alongside the US to enhance dialogue and properly address disagreements on the basis of mutual benefits and cooperation, the statement added. (IANS)

USA, September 4, 2017: US President Donald Trump has decided to end DACA programme- a programme that grants work permits to undocumented immigrants who arrived in the country as children with a six-month delay, the media reported.

Trump has wrestled for months with whether to do away with the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) programme introduced by his predecessor Barack Obama in June 2012 to shield hundreds of thousands of undocumented youths from deportation.

But conversations with Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who argued that Congress was responsible for writing immigration law, helped persuade the President to terminate the programme, the informed sources told Politico news on Sunday.

In a nod to reservations held by many lawmakers, the White House has planned to delay the enforcement of the President’s decision for six months, giving Congress a window to act, the sources said.

Trump is expected to formally make an announcement on the programme’s termination on Tuesday, and the White House informed House Speaker Paul Ryan of the President’s decision on Sunday

Paul Ryan thinks that ending DACA programme is not a good idea

On Friday, Paul Ryan said that he did not think the President should terminate DACA  programme and that Congress should act on the issue.

According to official documents, approximately 800,000 undocumented immigrants are currently benefiting from the DACA programme.

Permits under DACA programme are granted for two years before needing to be renewed.

The latest study by groups that support DACA programme estimated that 1,400 people a day could lose their protections if renewals ended.

Bernie Sanders criticised Donald Trump’s decision to end DACA programme

Former Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders has condemned the move, reports CNN.

“If Trump decides to end DACA programme, it will be one of the ugliest and cruellest decisions ever made by a president in our modern history,” the Vermont Senator tweeted on Sunday night. (IANS)
