Trump signs executive order to rein in China
President Donald Trump signed an executive order on Thursday to reinstate restrictions on trade with China.
Trump signed the order, which he called a “massive, historic step,” as he toured the border with Mexico in Arizona, where he spoke about trade.
“We have to make sure that we have strong trade relations with China, but we have to do it in a way that doesn’t put American jobs and American consumers at risk,” Trump said.
Trump also signed an order to temporarily stop the issuance of visas to foreign workers, saying that such visas are not needed to be approved for U.S. entry.
“I’m doing it because I want to protect American workers, but I’m also doing it to give us a chance to talk to the countries that are the primary producers of our goods,” Trump told reporters at the border.
He also signed the orders to reinstates a moratorium on the construction of the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines, and to require that federal agencies review and approve the construction projects before they go ahead.
“The United States must remain the leader in this area and we will continue to be,” Trump declared.
Trump is the first president in U.N. history to sign an executive action without signing a treaty.
The move came days after Trump and the Chinese president met at Mar-a-Lago, which is located about 25 miles (40 kilometers) from the border, and discussed ways to strengthen the U.A.E.T.
He spoke to Chinese President Xi Jinping at the end of a weeklong trip, with both leaders agreeing on the importance of working together in combating global warming.
Trump on Thursday said he hopes Xi and his wife, Peng Liyuan, will be able to visit the U to visit him and his family, and that they will have “a very happy reunion.”
Trump said that the trip was the largest he’s had to the U., and he said the Chinese leaders will be a “big part of that” in the future.
The two leaders also discussed the need for the United States to “stop the trade and economic aggression against our allies and partners,” according to the White House.
China, however, has not taken any unilateral actions to address its trade deficit with the United Kingdom and other U.K. nations.
Trump said China was “getting ahead of itself,” but said he expects China to “come around to our side.”
The two sides also agreed to continue to work together on climate change, and the Trump administration will work with the U.-S.
coal industry and others to “reduce carbon emissions and reduce global warming,” Trump announced.
Trump, a Republican who ran on a promise to reduce taxes, has made a number of business decisions that he said were based on the economic realities of his administration.
He’s also said he wants to reduce regulations that make it harder for small businesses to do business.
Trump’s actions on the trade front are part of a wider policy aimed at boosting U.T.’s business.
Last week, Trump signed a bill to create a new White House Office of Economic Opportunity, with the purpose of helping small businesses and the middle class.
The new office will include a team of economists to help guide the administration on trade and tax policy.
