The economic war between President Donald Trump and Congress will likely continue for a long time to come.
But the two sides are already well aware of how they can make the fight worse, with trade negotiations, as well as other foreign policy issues, being the prime targets for the White House and congressional leaders.
And if the president doesn’t take advantage of the fact that Congress is going to have to come to the table, the consequences for the economy will be dire.
“The White House has made it very clear that they want to be seen as the enemy of the American people,” said Scott W. Walker, a senior fellow at the Cato Institute.
“And they’re going to continue to make the point that it’s the Congress that has been making the decisions on the country’s direction, and they’re the ones that have failed to produce economic growth, and it’s their fault.”
Here’s what you need to know about trade war.
Trump has said the president will seek to get rid of the 15 percent tariffs imposed by Congress on imports from China, while congressional Democrats are trying to block that proposal.
But both sides are in a bind because of the president’s pledge to bring back manufacturing jobs lost to China, and also because the administration has made a series of unilateral moves in recent weeks to cut off the flow of dollars into the country.
Trump’s trade strategy has included threatening to withdraw from the North American Free Trade Agreement and renegotiating the North Atlantic Treaty Organization.
The administration has also said it is willing to use the Congressional Budget Office to come up with a new, more equitable trade policy for the United States.
The Trump administration has been working to negotiate a “win-win” trade deal with China, which would be a boon for U.S. exports and boost the economy of China.
China has also expressed an interest in the trade agreement, but Trump has refused to meet with Chinese officials on the issue.
The White House’s efforts to reach an agreement with Beijing on trade policy are in large part because of its position in Congress, and because of pressure from Democrats.
Democrats, led by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, have called for Trump to stop his efforts to renegotiate NAFTA and for the U.N. General Assembly to take up the issue, which Trump has dismissed as a distraction from other issues.
While the two parties agree that trade is a problem for the American economy, they disagree on how to fix it.
The economic debate has been the focus of a series by the New York Times over the last two years, and there has been growing pressure from Democratic lawmakers to engage in a more comprehensive, multilateral approach to trade.
The House has been considering legislation that would create a “Buy American, Hire American” rule for U,S.
companies, while the Senate is considering a bill that would ban companies from using U.K. subsidies to boost their exports to the United Kingdom.
Meanwhile, the U,N.
Trade Committee has been pushing for a new agreement to reduce tariffs on goods coming from China and India.
While that effort has stalled at the U., Trump has not indicated whether he will follow through with his threat to withdraw the U from the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement.
The trade fight could come to a head in the coming months as the Trump administration moves to implement the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, or “Trumpcare,” which would extend government benefits to Americans until 2019.
The law would allow Americans to continue getting federal subsidies and to keep insurance on their existing plans until 2024.
In a speech to the Heritage Foundation last month, Trump said that the law would provide “insurance to Americans at virtually no cost.”
But the White New York Council, which represents trade groups, has said that a new administration could push back on the extension of the subsidies.
The Council said that it had spoken with “senior administration officials” and that they “will be looking at the legislation to see if we should extend subsidies for a period of time.”
“The fact that the administration wants to extend subsidies means that they’re taking away the incentives that have been there,” said Laura O’Neill, the council’s director of policy and advocacy.
“If you take away the subsidy, you can’t create enough jobs.
And the president can’t ignore that and continue to try to do things that are hurting the economy.” “
I don’t know if you’re aware of the problem that we’re having with our economy and our workers and the job losses that are happening.
And the president can’t ignore that and continue to try to do things that are hurting the economy.”
For the president to make it worse, Democrats will have to make sure that trade policy remains a priority during the lame duck session of Congress.
“We’re going out there every single day trying to convince Congress that it can actually do something,” Walker said.
“Because the president wants to do whatever it takes to keep America strong.”
