Trump warns China not to retaliate against tariff hike

Trump warns China not to retaliate against tariff hike U.S. President Donald Trump on Monday warned China not to retaliate against a hike in tariffs he imposed last week and said U.S. consumers would not pay for any increase in duties. There "is no reason for the U.S. Consumer to pay the Tariffs, which take effect on China today ... China should not retaliate-will only get worse!" Trump tweeted, adding that tariffs can be avoided if manufacturers shift production from China to other countries.

Cruz, the chairman of the Senate subcommittee on aviation and space, warned Congress Wednesday that pirates may soon be able to hurt the U.S. economy or attack the country from space. The Trump administration is seeking $2 billion from Congress in order to establish the new military branch, but they have failed to get additional financial support from House Democrats after Vice President Mike Pence first unveiled the Space Force plans at the Pentagon in August of last year.

Cruz responded to a Yahoo! News article on Twitter Wednesday, which had created an illustration showing the Republican senator speaking in space next to a Star Wars-like battleship adorned with a recognizable pirate flag.

Trump warns China not to retaliate on tariffs, insists they won’t hurt U.S. consumers President Trump warned China against retaliation in a series of early morning tweets Monday and insisted there was “no reason” for U.S. consumers to absorb the costs of higher tariffs that took effect Friday. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.getMedianetNativeAds(true); }); Trump wrongfully suggested that the impact of the tariffs could be mitigated by simply buying products manufactured in the U.S., or other countries not subject to tariffs.

"Sure, a frigate w/ skull & crossbones in space is unlikely anytime soon, but what Yahoo conveniently omits is the threat of piracy, espionage & violence from rogue & rival NATIONS is very real. Indeed, China has already developed & tested weapons to destroy satellites in space," Cruz tweeted Wednesday.

The article was discussing the context surrounding Cruz's appeal for additional financing since House Democrats gained a majority and have soured on the additional military spending on top of the $10 billion currently being spent annually on undesignated space projects. Cruz compared the role of Space Force to that of the U.S. Navy defending commercial ships from pirates off the coast of Somalia or elsewhere.

Pompeo warns Russia against interfering in the 2020 U.S. presidential election

Pompeo warns Russia against interfering in the 2020 U.S. presidential election U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Tuesday that Washington would not tolerate any Russian interference in the U.S. presidential election in 2020. Speaking at a news conference after holding talks with Lavrov in the Russian Black Sea resort of Sochi, Pompeo said he had made it clear to Russia that there could be no repeat of election interference of the kind Washington accuses Moscow of undertaking in the 2016 presidential election. Russia denies the allegation it meddled in that election.

“Nations have recognized the necessity of naval forces and maintaining a superior capability to protect waterborne travel and commerce from bad actors,” said Cruz. “Pirates threaten the open seas, and the same is possible in space. In this same way, I believe we too must now recognize the necessity of a Space Force to defend the nation and to protect space commerce and civil space exploration.”

But many critics say the Trump administration's desire to militarize space could become a dangerous international race.

U.S. warns on possible 'imminent threats' to U.S. forces in Iraq

U.S. warns on possible 'imminent threats' to U.S. forces in Iraq The U.S. military said on Tuesday that there were possible imminent threats to U.S. troops in Iraq, who were now at a high level of alert, and underscored concerns about Iranian-backed forces in the region. "(The U.S. mission) is now at a high level of alert as we continue to closely monitor credible and possibly imminent threats to U.S. forces in Iraq," said Navy Captain Bill Urban, a spokesman at the U.S. military's Central Command, as he sought to clarify contradictory remarks by a British commander earlier on Tuesday.

Senator Ted Cruz is a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee and the Chairman of the Subcommittee on the Constitution. Due to the limited amount of space and resources, clerkships are unpaid, and there are usually more qualified applicants than positions available.

Ted Cruz warned that Democrats want to turn the Lone Star state into another liberal haven like California, "right down to tofu and silicon and dyed hair." Cruz also sought to stir up resentment over the fundraising totals for O'Rourke, who has been strongly outpacing Cruz in campaign contributions.

“The militarization of space is a path toward catastrophe,” Viktor Bondarev, a Russian parliamentarian told reporters last June following Trump’s announcement.

Bondarev argued the creation of Trump’s Space Force would require the U.S. to abandon the 1967 Outer Space Treaty, an international agreement that establishes rules for the use and exploration of space. Bondarev added that should the U.S. break the treaty, it could spark an international arms race in outer space.

“There’s still remnants of common sense in the American political elite,” Bondarev said last year. “But if the U.S. withdraws from the treaty, then, of course, not only ours but other states will follow with a tough response aimed at ensuring global security."

In February, Trump signed a directive outlining his plan to create the separate military branch primarily to protect satellites and assert U.S. dominance in Earth's orbit. "We have to be prepared," Trump told reporters. "My administration has made the creation of a space force a national security issue."

But the Trump administration's Space Force has at least one supporter: Elon Musk. The Tesla and SpaceX founder told the Recode Decode podcast last November he is a fan of the plan, saying, “I think it’s cool. You know, like, when the Air Force was formed, there was a lot of, like, pooh-poohing, and, like, ‘Oh, how silly to have an Air Force!’”

China formally accuses Canadians of espionage as Huawei standoff intensifies

Cruz led the effort to halt its implementation and defund Obamacare, filibustering it on the floor for an historic 21 hours. Obamacare is causing millions to lose their jobs, be forced into part-time work, lose their doctors and health insurance, and pay skyrocketing premiums. This law isn’t working.

CNN's Chris Moody combed through hours of raw footage from what could appear in a future Ted Cruz ad. These are some of the best--and awkward--moments.

Musk continued, “People today may not realize back then it was widely panned as a ridiculous thing to create the Air Force, but now everyone’s, like, ‘Obviously, you should have an Air Force. I think it’s gonna become obvious that we should have a Space Force too.”
