Trump says he talked to Apple CEO Tim Cook about tariffs and Samsung

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks with Tim Cook, chief executive officer of Apple Inc., during an American Workforce Policy Advisory board meeting in the State Dining Room of the White House in Washington, D.C., U.S., on Wednesday, March 6, 2019.

President Donald Trump said he talked to Tim Cook about tariffs and Apple’s South Korean competitor Samsung.

Trump said Cook made a “good case” that it would be difficult for Apple to pay tariffs, when Samsung does not face the same hurdle because much of its manufacturing is in South Korea.

“I thought he made a very compelling argument,” Trump told reporters Sunday. The president said he was having dinner with Apple’s CEO on Friday.

Trump has ordered 10% tariffs on an additional $300 billion in goods imported from China. Originally, all of those tariffs were scheduled to go into effect on Sept. 1, but Trump delayed some of the import duties until Dec. 15 over concerns about how they would impact the holiday shopping season.

Trump is 'dead wrong' in claiming the trade war hasn't damaged the US economy, says Mark Zandi

President Donald Trump speaks to members of the press prior to his departure on Marine One from the South Lawn of the White House in Washington, DC., on Friday, August 9, 2019.

U.S. President Donald Trump recently claimed Washington’s trade war with China has had little impact on the American economy so far. A widely followed economist said Thursday that the president is “dead wrong.”

Trump said in a Wednesday Twitter post that the U.S. is “winning, big, time against China,” adding that “prices to us have not gone up, and in some cases, have come down.”

However, according to Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody’s Analytics and a frequent critic of the Republican president, the “economic costs are mounting” in the U.S.

“To argue that this isn’t doing economic damage is just wrong,” Zandi told CNBC’s “Squawk Box” on Thursday.

If Trump were to follow through on his outstanding tariff threats, Zandi said, it would incur a cost of $100 billion for American businesses and consumers in the coming year.

“That’s half a percent of (gross domestic product), that’s about half the tax cut that Americans got last year,” the economist said. “That’s very significant.”

Chip stocks drop after US reportedly delays licenses for companies to restart sales to Huawei

President Donald Trump speaks to members of the media before boarding Marine One on the South Lawn of the White House in Washington, D.C., U.S., on Wednesday, Aug. 7, 2019.

The U.S. is putting its decision to relieve Huawei on hold after China suspended its purchase of U.S. agricultural products, according to a Bloomberg News report.

President Donald Trump last month agreed to give “timely licensing decisions” to allow a slew of tech companies including Google and Broadcom to sell to the Chinese telecom giant. But the latest escalation in the trade war made the administration reconsider the move, Bloomberg said, citing people familiar with the matter.

China decided to stop buying American crops in retaliation for Trump’s surprise tariffs threat last week. It also allowed its currency, the yuan, to drop against the dollar to a key level unseen since 2008.

Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats is leaving office after clashing with Trump on national security

Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats testifies to the Senate Intelligence Committee hearing about “worldwide threats” on Capitol Hill in Washington, January 29, 2019.

Dan Coats, the director of national intelligence, will be stepping down in mid-August, President Donald Trump said in a tweet Sunday.

Trump said he will nominate Rep. John Ratcliffe, R-Texas, to replace Coats.

“A former U.S. Attorney, John will lead and inspire greatness for the Country he loves,” Trump tweeted.

Coats will leave his position on Aug. 15.

In his resignation letter to the president, Coats said: “The Intelligence Community is stronger than ever, and increasingly well prepared to meet new challenges and opportunities.”

“As we have previously discussed, I believe it is time for me to move on to the next chapter of my life,” he wrote. “Therefore, I hereby submit to you my resignation effective August 15, 2019.”

Trump said that an acting director will be named “shortly.”

A spokeswoman for Ratcliffe did not immediately respond to CNBC’s request for comment on Trump’s announcement.

Coats’ departure ends a two-plus-year relationship with Donald Trump marked by tensions over the administration’s foreign policy stances that at times spilled into public view.

Ratcliffe drew attention this past week, when he questioned Robert Mueller during the former special counsel’s hearings before the House Judiciary and Intelligence committees about his investigation of Russian election interference, possible coordination between the Kremlin and Trump’s campaign, and possible obstruction of justice by Trump himself.

During the Judiciary hearing, Ratcliffe said he agreed with Mueller’s conclusions that Russia’s efforts to meddle in the 2016 presidential election were “sweeping and systematic.” But he tore into Mueller for noting in his 448-page report that while the investigation does not recommend Trump be charged for obstruction, it also does not “exonerate” him.

“Can you give me an example other than Donald Trump where the Justice Department determined that an investigated person was not exonerated because their innocence was not conclusively determined?” Ratcliffe asked.

Mueller responded, “I cannot, but this is a unique situation.”

“You can’t find it, because – I’ll tell you why – it doesn’t exist,” Ratcliffe shot back.

Mueller made no determination about whether Trump obstructed justice, because Mueller followed a Department of Justice legal opinion that states that a sitting president cannot be indicted while in office. Mueller later said that Trump could potentially be indicted after leaving office.

“It was not the special counsel’s job to conclusively determine Donald Trump’s innocence or to exonerate him because the bedrock principle of our justice system is a presumption of innocence. It exists for everyone, everyone is entitled to it, including sitting presidents,” Ratcliffe said.

“You managed to violate every principle and the most sacred of traditions about prosecutors not offering extra prosecutorial analysis.”

Trump shouldn’t be above the law, Ratcliffe added, “but he damn sure shouldn’t be below the law, which is where volume two of this report puts him.”

'Will Donald Trump ever be happy?': Ex-German defense chief questions calls for increased NATO spend

A former German defense chief told CNBC Friday that it may be impossible for his country to meet NATO spending targets and questioned whether President Donald Trump would be happy with any outcome on the issue.

Trump has repeatedly called on NATO allies like Germany to increase contributions toward defense, often criticizing them for not complying with a commitment to spend 2% of their gross domestic product (GDP). But Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg, the former German defense minister, doubted whether Germany would ever reach that target.

“Will Donald Trump ever be happy? Probably not, even if they come to these numbers, which I think is more or less impossible, he will just find the next thing to throw at Germany, or not even at Germany, whomever pleases him at that very moment,” he told CNBC’s Geoff Cutmore in Salzburg, Austria.

The relationship between the United States and Germany has been somewhat tense since Trump took over at the White House, especially in areas such as trade and foreign relations. Zu Guttenberg said the most significant thing for the current German defense minister, Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, is to show that Germany is “an extremely reliable partner in military terms” and that it is willing to take responsibility in “even nastier places around this globe.”

“And then of course come closer to the threshold of 2%. But it is quite hard,” he said, adding that it would be difficult to get such a rise in defense spending through the German parliament.

Is Boris Johnson really Britain's answer to Donald Trump?

This political leader has an instantly recognizable mop of blond hair, doesn’t shy away from the limelight, has been embroiled in several scandals and is known for his off-the-cuff, unfiltered and often highly charged comments. President Donald Trump? No, we’re talking about the U.K.’s next prime minister, Boris Johnson. Trump himself has suggested that Johnson was a kindred spirit. The president offered praise Tuesday after Johnson’s victory in his leadership race, saying “he’s tough and he’s smart.” “They call him ‘Britain Trump,’ and people are saying that’s a good thing. They like me over there. That’s what they wanted. That’s what they need,” Trump told an audience in Washington. The two leaders have recently formed closer bonds. Trump endorsed Johnson in his leadership contest, saying he would do a “great job” as prime minister. But just how similar are Trump and Johnson? Here’s a variety of topics that they might agree on or downright clash over, judging from their past comments and behavior:

Immigration

Immigration is a hot topic in both countries, but Trump and Johnson’s attitude to immigration is different. Trump has sought to toughen U.S. immigration laws and has made harsh comments about immigrants, for example, saying on his campaign trail that Mexicans were “bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists.” Johnson used immigration, and the fear of more immigration from potential future European Union member Turkey, as a reason to avoid remaining in the EU before the 2016 referendum. But he has been much more nuanced than Trump on the subject and has previously shown enthusiasm about an amnesty on illegal immigrants. Like Trump, Johnson has been accused of racism after he wrote an article about a prime ministerial trip to the Democratic Republic of Congo in 2002 in which he used offensive terms.

History

Both men were born in New York and both have colorful family histories, including tales of emigration and adventure — Trump traces his family history to Germany and Britain — his mother came from the Isle of Lewis (off the west coast of Scotland). Johnson’s family has links to British and European aristocracy and he is a distant relative of King George II. He should tell that to Trump, who appeared bowled over by his recent state visit to the U.K. and was particularly impressed by the queen.

Muslims

One area that Trump and Johnson have openly clashed is on Muslims. Johnson, whose great-grandfather was a Turkish Muslim, sorely criticized Trump’s 2015 call for a ban on Muslims entering the U.S., saying it showed “stupefying ignorance.” Then when Trump said in 2015 that some parts of London had become so radicalized that police fear for their lives, Johnson — who is known for quick-witted (if perhaps eccentric) responses — retorted that “the only reason I wouldn’t visit some parts of New York is the real risk of meeting Donald Trump.” Nonetheless, Johnson himself has made strident comments about Muslim women, likening those wearing burkas to letterboxes. He also refused to apologize after the remarks, just as Trump has refused after telling four newly elected women of color to “go home” to their countries.

Women

Something that unites 73-year-old president and the 55-year-old prime minister-designate is women, no matter how much trouble that has resulted. Both Trump and Johnson have been embroiled in scandals about their private lives and numerous allegations of extra-marital relations. Furthermore, Trump has been accused of varying degrees of inappropriate behavior including sexual harassment and rape (including by his ex-wife Ivana) but no allegations have led to charges. Much attention has been put on Johnson’s new relationship with Carrie Symonds who is 24 years his junior. Media attention focused on a recent row between the couple that was recorded by neighbors; Symonds was reportedly heard shouting at Johnson to “get off me.” Whether Symonds will move into 10 Downing Street with Johnson is the subject of much British media speculation.

The big names in Jeffrey Epstein's 'Black Book': Trumps, Clintons, Prince Andrew, Bill Cosby, Woody Allen, more on accused sex trafficker's phone list

A video still from the NBC archive showing Donald Trump talking with Jeffrey Epstein at a party in Mar-A-Lago from 1992.

Check out these names.

The “black book” of Jeffrey Epstein, a wealthy financier and now-accused child sex trafficker, is a smorgasbord of high-profile, powerful people, including Presidents Donald Trump and Bill Clinton, Britain’s Prince Andrew and former Prime Minister Tony Blair, and convicted sex assailant and comedian Bill Cosby, Epstein’s former neighbor.

Then there’s supermarket mogul Ron Burkle, Clinton’s daughter Chelsea Clinton, former Secretaries of State Henry Kissinger and John Kerry, late Saudi arms dealer Adnan Khashoggi, media titan Rupert Murdoch, and movie director Woody Allen, New York magazine notes in a new article detailing the contents of Epstein’s private phone book and private plane’s flight logs.

The article contains summaries of Epstein’s relationships with various well-heeled people whose names appear in those documents including President Donald Trump, who once called Epstein a “terrific guy” in an interview with New York, and Bill Clinton, who traveled multiple times on Epstein’s plane.

Trump’s first wife, Ivana, is in the book, as is his third wife, Melania, and his daughter, Ivanka, currently senior advisor to the president.

Epstein’s address book originally was published in 2015 by the defunct news site Gawker, after its content was revealed in a court case.

“Along with the logs of Epstein’s private plane, released in 2015, the book paints a picture of a man deeply enmeshed in the highest social circles,” New York says in its article.

New York notes that a woman whose name appears on flight manifests of Epstein’s jet — “including Bill Clinton’s trip across Africa, and who wound up working at the Clinton Foundation” — is one of five women whom Epstein recommended as an assistant for Charlie Rose, the then host of a PBS talk show.

Rose ended up hiring three of Epstein’s recommendations, the magazine reported.

One of those women, who later was among more than two dozen who accused Rose of sexual misconduct, was quoted by New York as saying, “I was being offered up for abuse” by Epstein.

Rose in 2017 lost his PBS gig, along with posts at “CBS This Morning” and “60 Minutes,” on the heels of the misconduct allegations.

Trump says India tariffs on American products are 'no longer acceptable'

India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi (R) and US President Donald Trump during a meeting in the sidelines of the G20 Leaders’ Summit in Buenos Aires, on November 30, 2018.

President Donald Trump said Tuesday the U.S. needs to stand up to India on the trade front.

In a tweet, Trump said: “India has long had a field day putting Tariffs on American products. No longer acceptable!”

The iShares MSCI India ETF (INDA) ETF fell more than 1% in the premarket after the tweet was sent. It later recovered to trade along the flatline, however.

Earlier this year, the Trump administration stripped India of a preferential status that exempted billions of dollars worth of products made there from U.S. levies. “I have determined that India has not assured the United States that India will provide equitable and reasonable access to its markets,” Trump said in a proclamation.

India has tariffs on U.S. products such as Harley-Davidson motorcycles and U.S.-grown apples, among others. In June, Trump said India’s 50% levy on Harley-Davidson bikes was “unacceptable.”

The latest escalation comes as the U.S. tries to broker a trade deal with China. U.S. officials are expected to meet with Chinese trade negotiators this week.

Trump says he's considering an executive order to add citizenship question to census

US President Donald Trump speaks to the media as he walks to Marine One prior to departing from the South Lawn of the White House in Washington, DC, July 5, 2019.

President Donald Trump said Friday that he is considering signing a executive order to include a citizenship question in the 2020 census.

“We’re thinking about doing that. It’s one of the ways – we have four or five ways we can do it. It’s one of the ways that we’re thinking about doing it very seriously,” Trump told reporters outside the White House before departing for his private resort in Bedminster, New Jersey.

“We can also add an addition on. So we can start the printing now and maybe do an addendum after we get a positive decision,” Trump said. “So we’re working on a lot of things, including an executive order.”

It’s far from clear whether Trump has any leverage, let alone unilateral power, to mandate the question’s inclusion in the decennial report. Under Article I of the U.S. Constitution, Congress holds power over the census, not the president.
