News reports say House Democrats and the White House are close to agreeing on changes to a trade deal that the United States, Canada and Mexico signed last year but have not ratified. The United States-Mexico-Canada-Agreement, known as the USMCA, would replace the existing North American Free Trade Agreement, or NAFTA, which President Donald Trump has derided as the "worst trade deal" ever signed by the U.S. He made renegotiating NAFTA a campaign promise during the 2016 presidential race. NAFTA took effect in the 1990s during U.S. President Bill Clinton's administration. The Mexican...

U.S. President Donald Trump made an unannounced Thanksgiving visit to American troops in Afghanistan where he disclosed his administration had resumed peace talks with the Taliban and the insurgent group is willing to observe a cease-fire.

Thursday, 28 November 2019 18:30 WIB | Global

President Donald Trump has signed two separate bills backing pro-democracy demonstrators in Hong Kong, despite a trade deal in the balance and threats from Beijing.

It threatens sanctions on Chinese officials who do not. The second bans the export of tear gas, pepper spray, rubber bullets and other non-lethal ammunition to Hong Kong police. On Thursday, China's Vice Foreign...
