President Trump said Monday that he has asked advisers to identify $200 billion worth of Chinese goods that would face tariffs if China does not bend to U.S. trade demands. Last week, the White House announced it would go forward with $50 billion in tariffs, prompting China to retaliate with a similar levy on U.S. goods. Trump reacted with fury to the response and indicated he will go beyond Monday's $200 billion threat if China retaliates again. "This latest action by China clearly indicates its determination to keep the United States at a permanent and unfair disadvantage," Trump said Monday.

FERC Again Shows the Value of Independent Agencies to our Markets and Democracy


The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission members testified before a Senate oversight hearing on June 12 to underscore that no power grid emergency exists to warrant the Trump administration's plans to provide aid to money-losing coal plants and nuclear reactors. FERC Chairman Kevin McIntyre, a Republican appointee, said "there is no immediate calamity or threat " to the reliability of the power system. A draft U.S. Energy Department memo reported by the media on June 1 calls for the government to invoke a national security law to avert the closure of the plants, which have become uneconomic to operate in the face of historically low power prices and competition from cheap natural gas-fired generators. Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski said the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission should lead the way on addressing vulnerabilities to the grid, while reaffirming the "commitment to competition in wholesale markets".

China announced retaliatory tariffs designed to hit President Trump's supporters in farm states and the industrial Midwest. The measures, announced barely an hour after the White House went ahead with a 25-percent import tax on $50 billion of Chinese imports to the United States, brought the world's two biggest economies closer to the tit-for-tat trade war that business leaders and Republicans in Congress fear.
