Anne Gearan and Paul Sonne, The Washington Post Published 4:07 pm PDT, Wednesday, June 12, 2019 WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump announced an expanded military relationship with Poland on Wednesday, including the likelihood of additional U.S. troops serving at what Trump called a "world-class" new Polish base, as his administration rewards a like-minded and increasingly authoritarian NATO ally. The plan, although vague and incomplete, was announced as part of a daylong White House visit for Poland's right-wing leader, President Andrzej Duda, that included a F-35 jet turning loops near the Washington Monument as Trump and his guests clapped on the White House lawn. "I just have a very warm feeling for Poland. I always have," said Trump, adding that he may make his second trip to the country as president in September. Trump was explicit that his goal was to boost Poland and punish neighbor and close U.S. ally Germany, where about 34,000 U.S. forces are stationed. … [Read more...] about Trump elevates Poland with troop decision, at expense of Germany

Carol Morello, The Washington Post Published 1:21 pm PDT, Tuesday, April 2, 2019 The United States is on pace to accept one of the lowest numbers of refugees on record under sweeping restrictions imposed by the Trump administration. State Department figures show that 12,151 refugees arrived in the United States as of March 31, six months into the fiscal year that began Oct. 1. If the number of admissions continues at the same clip in the second half of the year, the total will fall 19 percent below the historically low ceiling of 30,000 set by President Donald Trump. The United States is now in the third year of an overall slowdown in refugee numbers, despite a continuing crisis. Worldwide, 68 million people have been forcibly displaced, and more than 25 million are refugees. Groups that work with refugees say it is not that fewer people are seeking to come to the United States but that far fewer are able to gain admission. The United States traditionally has been … [Read more...] about Number of refugees down sharply, again, under Trump administration’s restrictions

Donald Trump's bare-knuckled attack on Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell in recent weeks has overshadowed a more pressing question for the U.S. economy: Does the president have a point? Mr. Trump's main beef with the central bank is that its ongoing policy of hiking interest rates is curbing growth just as Americans are reaping the benefits a buoyant economy. The job market is humming, with unemployment at its lowest rate in nearly half a century. Wages, which barely rose during the post-recession "recovery," are finally giving workers a meaningful pay bump. Inflation remains tame. So why mess with success? Trump slams Fed Chair Jerome Powell: A "much bigger problem than China" Trump on the Fed: Central bank is "my biggest threat" The case against hiking interest rates Mr. Trump's unusually fierce rebuke of Powell -- his own pick to lead the central bank -- is, to put it mildly, a departure from precedent. Presidents don't usually rough up Fed chiefs in public, largely … [Read more...] about Is Trump right in accusing Fed chief of hurting the economy?

Mr. Macron reassured Mr. Trump that his call this week for a “true European army” to defend against Russia, China and even the United States was actually in harmony with the American president’s insistence that NATO allies pick up more of the burden of mutual security efforts. “I do share President Trump’s views that we need a much better budgetary with NATO, and that’s why I do believe my proposals for European defense are utterly consistent … [Read more...] about Trump Meets With Macron Amid Tension Over European Security
