@EconomicPolicy 's #USMCA  statement is as gratuitously partisan as #Pelosi 's & the @AFLCIO 's. But I agree w/the call for a moratorium on future #tradetalks  pending a better national strategy. (Assuming, of course, that the #China  #tariffs  stay on.):

The figures were by no means great, but overall final 3Q US #labor  #productivity  growth came in slightly better than the advance. Ditto for #manufacturing  - even as durable goods #s  were revised way down & nondurables #s  were revised way up! #economy 

As well #Trump  should. Because what has the #UnitedKingdom  done to defend #Japan  lately? And what #nuclear  war risk is it exposed to? P.S. It isn't as if US fighter jets suck: #f2jp  #defense  #alliance  #allies 

ICYMI, my new #RealityChek  post explains why, if you're looking for some impeachable offenses, don't forget the deceitf ul #globalist  #Afghanistan  war cheerleaders who preceded #Trump  in the #WhiteHouse : Papers#impeachment  #AfghanistanPapers  #foreignpolicy 

I.e., buhbye unelected global bureaucrats; hello reclaimed US sovereignty. Good riddance also to the silly idea that countries like #China  - & indeed many leading foreign economies - take the notion of "rules" seriously: #WTO  #epicfail  #trade  #globalism 

Wait a second! @Reuters  is quoting @eitansimcha  of the US apparel and footwear "industry" on t #tradeware  slowi #capexg  ? Like its companies do much beside import clothing and shoes from penny-wage countries li #Chinae  ? CC @apparelfootwear  #trade  #SMH 

Down to 5.8% next year for #China ! And that's apparently based on #Beijing 's largely phony data! … war ? #trade  #tradewar  #winning

Reportedly, "At least 82 candidates and office holders have been killed since the #Mexico ] electoral season kicked off in September....": ? #NAFTA  #failedstate 

Will someone tell #HillaryClinton  that the #NATO  #allies ' contribution to the post #September11  #Afghanistan  war was - & is bupkis?

Just voted in my municipal #Maryland ) #elections . No one checked any ID. I could have been anyone. #voterfraud 

Only 1 brief mention in this #WaPo  piece that any of these #illegalaliens  have already received final removal orders. In fact, these number 1 million: & #immigration  #mediabias  #deportation  #bordercrisis 

@carney  Strongly agree. #Pelosi  is the only one standing in the room, she's pointing her finger at #Trump , and this makes him look bad? #TrumpDerangementSyndromeD  #Pelosi MeltdownerangementSyndrome Meltdown?

#Immigrants ' rights" group rejects #Maryland  #taxpayer-funded  grant to provide legal services for immigrants facing #deportation  b/c bar on aiding those w/major criminal convictions wd've eliminated most recipients: #crime  #immigration 

As reported here, US localities being pressed by #illegalimmigrants  to pay (more of) their legal fees: #immigration
