Published

on

The White House officially announced that President Trump reached a brand new deal with Beijing that would stop new U.S. tariffs on goods from China from going into effect on Sunday and will roll back some of the tariffs that currently exist.

China will then increase the purchase of farm goods from the United States.

Here’s more on the deal from The Washington Examiner:

“We have agreed to a very large Phase One Deal with China. They have agreed to many structural changes and massive purchases of Agricultural Product, Energy, and Manufactured Goods, plus much more,” Trump tweeted.

In a follow-up tweet, Trump said, “The Penalty Tariffs set for December 15th will not be charged because of the fact that we made the deal.” The White House had previously been set to enact 15% tariffs on a further $156 billion worth of Chinese goods starting Sunday.

Negotiations for “phase two” of the trade deal with Beijing will begin “immediately,” Trump said. The president had previously said they might wait until after the 2020 election.

The president went on to state that some of the existing tariffs on Chinese goods and products would be cut in half to 7.5 percent, but seemed to indicate other goods would still have the 15 percent tariff attached to them.

The Trump administration also stated that there would be no changes to the 25 percent tariffs that currently exist on $250 billion worth of Chinese products.

Trump and Beijing have been engaged in negotiations for the last two months to try and finish “phase one” of a trade agreement that was first announced on October 11. The negotiations have been slow going as both sides have argued over how the terms of the deal were going to be written and whether or not the administration would yank some of the tariffs it’s formerly imposed.

Fauci Comes Right Out and Blames the Unvaccinated for Continued Pandemic

It doesn’t get much clearer than that.

Published

There has been an incredible amount of pressure being applied to unvaccinated Americans as of late, and it’s coming from all directions.  Media pundits are berating them, local and federal governments are targeting them, and businesses around the country are treating them like second class citizens. Now, to add insult to injury, one of the nation’s most well-known epidemiologists is blaming the unvaccinated for the recent uptick in COVID cases. Dr. Anthony Fauci, chief medical adviser to President Biden, said Sunday that Americans who remain unvaccinated against the coronavirus are “propagating” the latest outbreak of cases of the highly contagious Delta variant. “We have 100 million people in this country … who are eligible to be vaccinated, who are not vaccinated,” Fauci said in an interview with “Face the Nation.” “We’ve really got to get those people to change their minds, make it easy for them, convince them, do something to get them to be vaccinated because they are the ones that are propagating this outbreak.” In places such as Florida, where the local government has largely resisted restrictive coronavirus precautions, a new daily-case record was just reached on Saturday, besting the previous number that occurred back in January, before the vaccines were widely available. Of course, Dr. Fauci is not a popular man among conservatives and libertarians, who have largely suggested that the government should simply stay out of the way of We The People as it pertains to keeping ourselves safe.

Southern State Breaks Single Day COVID Record During ‘Delta’ Heyday

That can’t be good.

Concerns abound in America today, as the coronavirus crisis’ latest surge has some wondering if the “third” and “fourth” waves we were talking about back in the tail end of 2020 were actually still part of the first wave. That’s because now, after 17-plus months of abject annoyance, the COVID-19 pandemic is back in nearly-full-swing. In fact, down in The Sunshine State, the delta variant is pushing the pandemic to new single-day records. Florida on Saturday reported 21,683 new coronavirus cases, its highest one-day tally since the pandemic started – and a 50% jump over the last week, according to health officials. Cases have ticked up around the country as businesses open up and the delta variant spreads but Florida accounts for around one-fifth of all cases in the U.S. Florida’s previous single-day record had been the 19,334 cases reported Jan. 7 this year before vaccines were widely available. Around 60% of Floridians age 12 and older are vaccinated, ranking it about midway among the states. The state’s governor was adamant about his method for tackling the virus, however. Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has resisted mandatory mask mandates and vaccine requirements and on Friday he barred school districts from requiring students to wear masks when classes resume next month. “A lot of these kids suffered under wearing these masks,” DeSantis said Saturday on Fox News’ “Unfiltered with Dan Bongino.” “There’s a lot of harms that come with it and I think we’re basically empowering the parents to be able to recognize what’s best for their kids and I think in most instances what’s best for the kids from the parents’ perspective is going to be going to school mask-free.” Further fueling this coronavirus resurgence has been Florida’s still thriving tourism industry, which brings Americans from all corners of the country to the…
