Paulette Ditter feeds on 2 June on their farm in Plymouth, Wisconsin, cows. As milk prices are low, many dairy farmers fear that they will continue to be affected by the Trump administration's Ver The good news for Trump today is that he has something in his hands to talk about trade (the $ 12 billion aid and the European Union concession to buy soybeans). The question is, is that enough?
Here are the NBC / Marist scores for Trump and the GOP in Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin:
Trump's job rating (among registered voters)
Congressional preference (among registered voters)
Does Trump have one Earned re-election?
The other numbers in the NBC / Marist polls – including the main and general electoral races in these states – come out later today.
A truce in the trade war? Or just a break in the conflict?
Perhaps in the face of these numbers, Trump has been trying to lower trade tensions with the European Union. The New York Times commented yesterday on joint statements by Trump and Jean-Claude Juncker, President of the European Commission: "Both sides, he said, would have agreed to abolish additional tariffs and reduce existing ones to steel and aluminum while trying to negotiate a treaty to eliminate tariffs, non-tariff barriers and subsidies for industrial goods, except cars. "
More:" It was hard to say was a true truce or just one, given Mr. Trump's deception and unpredictable bargaining style Pause in a Conflict That May Flare Again Twice Mr. Trump's advisors have negotiated possible deals with China just to reject it and introduce more tariffs, and reducing these trade barriers to zero would be an extremely complex political challenge on both sides of the Atlantic.
And: "And Mr. Trump resigned from Strafzolld Englisch: www.socialistgroup.eu/gpes/newsdeta…ome&site=msc. www.socialistgroup.eu/gpes/newsdeta…ome&site=msw for some relatively minor European concessions. Www.mjfriendship.de/de/index.php?op…27&Itemid=47
The White House (Update: Finally) corrected its official transcript for the Helsinki presser
Yesterday we were over a little bit fast the failure of the White House in its official record of Vladimir Putin, he wanted to win Trump 2016. The White House published a statement after our publication stating that the omission was not malicious.
"The White House stenographer uses the sound from the White House audio material to create the transcript, and the audio mixer on the page did not raise the question of mic level in time for the beginning of Jeff's question because the translator was still talking, that was not malicious, "said the White House to Peter Alexander of NBC.
The White House did not intentionally alter or delete his transcript. Fair enough.
But understand that: A whole day after this became a story, the White House has NOT UPDATED its transcript YET. Until after First Read's first publication on Thursday morning, it revealed the following:
REUTERS JEFF MASON: And did you tell one of your officers to help?
PUTIN: (As interpreted.) Yes, I did. Yes I have. Because he spoke of making the relations between the US and Russia normal again.
REUTERS JEFF MASON: Did you want President Trump to win the election, and did you manage anything? from your officials to help them with this?
PUTIN (as interpreted): Yes, I did. Yes I have. He talked about making the Russian relationship normal again.
The White House finally corrected the transcript to include the question later on Thursday.
And why was that important? Just this week, Trump
claimed via Twitter that Russia "will put a lot of pressure on the Democrats in November". "I am very worried that Russia will be fighting very hard to influence the upcoming election, given that no president in Russia was tougher than me, they will be pushing very hard for the Democrats, they definitely do not want Trump ! ", He said. Bill Shine Already Prints at Trump White House
You can already see the influence of Bill Shine, former head of Fox News, now Trump's top communications assistant, in the White House. Only yesterday was the Trump-EU announcement in the Rose Garden, which just interrupted the hard grilling of US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Capitol Hill. So someone gets stagecraft and can bring a different story on TV.
Then came the news that the White House banned a CNN reporter from this Rose Garden event. "The White House banned a CNN reporter from attending a press event with President Donald Trump on Wednesday after asking him questions about his former lawyer Michael Cohen and Russian President Vladimir Putin," the NBC News said. "Kaitelan Collins, the White House cable network reporter, served as a" pool reporter "during a photo-op in the Oval Office with President Trump and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker on Wednesday, and asked questions from several news organizations When the President sat on photos, Collins posed a few questions in the hope that Trump could answer. "
Our esteemed colleague
Dan Balz has well expressed it :" [T] he refused against CNNs @ Kaitlancollins for their work – that was to ask President's questions about news of the day, WH's action was completely unjustified and outrageous. " Stacey Abrams against Brian Kemp in Georgia could be the country's ideologically polarizing race  Alex Seitz-Wald of the NBC: "She is a staunch supporter of gun control, he is a gun-friendly NRA member who is in campaigning with a small arsenal. She criticizes the "heartless" treatment of immigrants; He says he has a big truck just in case I have to bring together criminal illegals. "
" She is a progressive Democrat who would be the nation's first black governor; He is a white man "politically incorrect" with the support of President Donald Trump. This year's race for the Governor of Georgia is marked by remarkable contrasts between the candidates as the hopes of each party offer a clearer distillation of the passions of their base than this year in almost every other race in the nation. "
" "I call it the Battle of the Bases," said Kerwin Swint, political scientist and dean of Kennesaw State University, just outside of Atlanta. "This could be our policy: this race will be ideological, as Georgia is not really used to, and it will be nationalized in a way that Georgia is not really used to."
So this could be a repeat of Trump against Clinton his – or maybe even a preview of Trump vs. Warren.
