'The trade war hurts them, it doesn't hurt us'

'The trade war hurts them, it doesn't hurt us'

President Donald Trump and Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven clashed Tuesday over Trump's proposed tariffs on steel and aluminum imports, APA reportrs quoting CNN.

"Russians had no impact on our votes whatsoever", Trump said. Certainly there was meddling.

The Trump administration considers clamping down on Chinese investments in the U.S., North Korea and the U.S. may be ready to talk, and China prepares to make its most decisive shift yet away from the reforms of the 1980s.

President Trump, in a joint news conference with the Swedish prime minister, acknowledged Russian "meddling" in the 2016 presidential election and said his administration is working to counteract any interference in elections in 2018 - even as he downplayed the effect of Russia's 2016 influence campaign.

"It's always good to have a paper back-up system of voting", he said.

Lt. Gen. Robert Ashley, director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, told the Senate Armed Services Committee on Tuesday that he doesn't share some lawmakers' optimism about the latest development.

Trump's comments came hours after Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats warned lawmakers of the continuing cyber threat that Russian Federation poses to the U.S. electoral system.

"You don't want your system of votes to be compromised in any way and we won't allow that to happen", Trump said.

"We are urging caution", McConnell said.

In response to the second summons, Nirav Modi said he can not appear before the agency owing to his business commitments. The ED had issued summonses to him on February 15, February 17 and February 22, asking him to appear before the agency.

Trump's chief economic adviser, Gary Cohn, resigned in the wake of disagreements over Trump's decision to move forward with aluminum and steel tariff. "I would say right now they do not think much will happen to them", he said of Russian Federation during his confirmation hearing last week.

"You have to be very vigilant", Trump said.

The indictment issued by the US special counsel charged them with running a huge but hidden social media trolling campaign aimed in part at helping Republican Donald Trump defeat Democrat Hillary Clinton. And the end result will be that countries "like us better, and they will respect us much more".

President Donald Trump is citing "possible progress" in talks with North Korea, but says it may also be "false hope". And, you know, the market's already spooked by the threat of a trade war, so this is only going to add to that. 'I love Sweden. Great country, great people, I love Sweden, but they understand I'm right. "It's old fashioned... it's called paper".

Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven is offering to help President Donald Trump with potential future talks between the USA and North Korea.

The news conference also provided Trump an opportunity to weigh in on upcoming talks between North Korea and South Korea, which were announced Tuesday.

Experts say the new sanctions are expected to target some subset of people from that list, though it's not yet clear who.

But he sent a stern warning, saying the European countries have "taken advantage" of the United States for too long. It also acts as a protecting power for the USA in the country.
