Donald Trump claims that he did not approve of chanting send back against Ilhan Omar

New Delhi: A day after President Donald Trump led supporters into chanting “send her back”, for the Somalia-born Democratic lawmaker Ilhan Omar, at a re-election rally in North Carolina, he has claimed he actually did not approve of it and tried to stop it.

Donald Trump had waited noticeably — 13 seconds — for the chanting to end, without doing anything to stop it. He did not immediately admonish his supporters or for hours after. Trump waited for the chants to subside before resuming his speech

He is now understood to be trying to make amends faced with growing unease among Republicans about his feud with the four Democratic women lawmakers of color and the racist tone that he has adopted and has continued to pursue.

Donald Trump Reiterated He Could Impose Additional Tariffs On Chinese Imports If He Wants

New Delhi: After promising to hold off on more duties in a trade-war truce President Donald Trump reached with China’s Xi Jinping last month, he reiterated that he could impose additional tariffs on Chinese imports if he wants.

“We have a long way to go as far as tariffs where China is concerned, if we want. We have another $325 billion we can put a tariff on, if we want,” Trump said. “So, we’re talking to China about a deal, but I wish they didn’t break the deal that we had.” China said Wednesday that further levies would complicate the negotiations.

“If the U.S. imposes new tariffs, this would create a new obstacle for U.S. and China trade negotiations, would make the road to coming to an agreement longer,” Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang told reporters in Beijing. “China still hopes to resolve U.S.-China trade frictions through consultation and dialogue.”
