Donald Trump Jr. plans to campaign against Michigan Republican Justin Amash in 2020 primary

Donald Trump, Jr. speaks during a rally with President Donald Trump at the Williamsport Regional Airport in Montoursville, Pa., on Monday, May 20, 2019.

Donald Trump Jr. is planning to campaign against the only Republican congressman who has called for the president’s impeachment.

Donald Trump Jr. will be heading to Michigan to fight Rep. Justin Amash in a primary battle, people close to the Trump Organization executive told CNBC, speaking on the condition of anonymity. This comes after Trump’s son tweeted out a poll showing Amash losing to his only challenger so far in the race, state legislator Jim Lower, and hinting he will be heading to the Wolverine state to take on the four-term lawmaker.

“See you soon Justin… I hear Michigan is beautiful during primary season,” Trump Jr. said.

Trump Jr.’s associates also said he will not be involved with recruiting any of the potential primary challengers for Michigan’s 3rd Congressional District, which is in the western part of the state and includes Battle Creek, and will leave that task up to Republican Party leaders.

Amash responded to the possibility of Trump Jr. working the primary by saying: “If it’s what you say I love it especially later in the summer.”

An Amash spokeswoman referred CNBC to his tweet and a representative for Trump Jr. declined to comment.

Tensions between Amash and Republicans loyal to President Donald Trump came to a boiling point after the Michigan representative reviewed the Mueller report and declared on Twitter that the president engaged in impeachable conduct.

Millionaires say they are more likely to vote for Joe Biden over Donald Trump in 2020 elections

Former U.S. vice president and current presidential candidate Joe Biden speaks during a campaign stop at the IBEW Local 490 in Concord, NH on June 4, 2019.

American millionaires would elect Joe Biden over President Donald Trump if the former vice president becomes the Democratic nominee, according to a new survey.

The CNBC Millionaire survey asked millionaires who they would choose for president if Trump runs against various opponents in 2020. Biden and Pete Buttigieg are the only Democratic nominees who beat Trump among the top Democratic candidates in a head-to-head race.

Fully 53% of millionaire respondents said they would vote for Biden, compared with 39% for Trump, while 9% would be undecided. In a race between Trump and Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, wins 43% to Trump’s 42%.

Against Sen. Bernie Sanders, Trump wins 46% to 40%. Trump beats Sen. Kamala Harris among millionaires 45% to 42%, while he beats Sen. Elizabeth Warren 47% to 40%.

Of course, millionaire voters aren’t reliable predictors of election results. Millionaires backed former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton by a comfortable margin over Trump before the 2016 election, 44% to 31%, according to the CNBC Millionaire Survey.

Trump says 'devalued' currencies put US at a disadvantage and the Fed doesn't have a 'clue'

President Donald Trump, left, and Jerome Powell, the new chairman of the Federal Reserve on Thursday, Nov. 2, 2017.

President Donald Trump said Tuesday that the U.S. dollar is at a disadvantage compared with other major currencies like the euro as central banks keep interest rates low while the Federal Reserve’s rates are higher by comparison.

“The Euro and other currencies are devalued against the dollar, putting the U.S. at a big disadvantage,” Trump tweeted, adding the Fed doesn’t have “a clue.”

Trump also said in a separate tweet that the U.S. has low inflation, calling it “a beautiful thing.”

The dollar fell slightly against the euro following Trump’s tweets.

Trump has repeatedly gone after the Fed for what he considers tight monetary policy. The Fed hiked rates four times in 2018.

Trump reportedly will threaten to curb intelligence sharing with UK over Huawei

President Donald Trump applauds while delivering the commencement address at the U.S. Air Force Academy’s graduation ceremony in Colorado Springs, Colorado, U.S., May 30, 2019.

U.S. President Donald Trump plans to tell the British government in person that Washington may limit intelligence sharing with the U.K. if it allows Huawei to build part of its 5G high-speed mobile network, the Financial Times reported.

Trump is set to embark on a three-day state visit to the U.K. in June, days before British Prime Minister Theresa May is set to resign from her post.

According to American and British officials, Trump decided to raise the issue about Huawei after his aides had repeatedly failed to convince the U.K. government to restrict the involvement of the Chinese company, the newspaper said.

A person involved in planning the trip told the FT that Trump was ready to make his objections known both in public and in private: “The president is preparing to repeat the message that Chinese involvement in 5G could pose significant challenges for US-UK intelligence co-operation.”

The White House did not immediately respond to an emailed request for comment sent outside regular office hours.

Senate Intelligence Committee subpoenas Donald Trump Jr.

The Republican-led Senate Intelligence Committee has subpoenaed President Donald Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., to answer questions about his claim to have just limited knowledge of an ultimately aborted plan to build a Trump Tower in Moscow, NBC News reported Wednesday.

Trump Jr.’s prior testimony was called into question earlier this year by new testimony from President Trump’s former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, who said he had briefed Trump Jr. repeatedly about the effort to develop a Trump Tower there.

A person close to Donald Trump Jr. blasted the subpoena to CNBC as “an obvious PR stunt from a so-called ‘Republican’ senator” — Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr of North Carolina — “too cowardly to stand up to his boss [committee ranking Democrat] Mark Warner and the rest of the resistance Democrats on the committee.”

That person said people should expect Trump Jr. to fight the subpoena.

Trump Jr. testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee in September 2017 that “I was peripherally aware” of an effort to build that project in Russia, which was being pursued as his father was a candidate for the Republican presidential nomination. That effort was not known to the public at the time.

A source directly familiar with the matter told NBC News that the committee also wants to ask Trump Jr. about what he has claimed to have told colleagues about the Trump Tower New York meeting in June 2016, when he, his brother-in-law Jared Kushner and campaign chairman Paul Manafort met with a Russian lawyer who purportedly had negative information about Hillary Clinton.

In his Senate judiciary testimony, Trump Jr. claimed he did not tell Manafort or Kushner what the meeting was going to be about, and further claimed he did not tell his father about the meeting at all.

But Cohen has said he recalled being in the elder Trump’s office in June 6 or 7 in 2016 when the younger Trump told his father that a meeting to obtain derogatory information about Clinton was going to happen.

And Cohen in February told a House committee that he had met with both Donald Trump Jr. and his sister, Ivanka Trump, “approximately 10” times to brief them about the Trump Tower plan.

“The company [the Trump Organization] was involved in the deal, which meant that the family was involved in the deal,” he testified.

Cohen on Monday began serving a three-year federal prison sentence after pleading guilty to crimes that included having lied to Congress in 2017 about details of the Trump Tower project.

Cohen originally falsely told Congress that the project was dropped in January 2016 — months before the elder Trump had locked up the GOP presidential nomination — when it actually had continued being pursued through June 2016, when Trump had the nomination well in hand.

Jeremy Siegel: Stocks could drop 10% to 20% if China and US ‘dig in’ on trade war

Jeremy Siegel: Stocks could drop 10% to 20% if China and US 'dig in' on trade war

Chinese President Xi Jinping (R) waves to the press as he walks with US President Donald Trump at the Mar-a-Lago estate in West Palm Beach, Florida, April 7, 2017.

Stocks could drop significantly if the United States and China both dig in during trade talks, Jeremy Siegel, finance professor at the Wharton School, told CNBC’s “Squawk Alley ” on Tuesday.

Tensions between the U.S. and China are high as U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer said Monday that new tariffs on 25% of goods will go through on Friday. Siegel said this causes major risk to the downside.

“If both sides dig in this market could go down 10% to 20%,” said Siegel. “It’s a question of what happens on Friday. If it does happen on Friday what is the retaliation of the Chinese? And that’s totally dominating the market for the next two or three weeks.”

Siegel said the market built in about a 90% chance that trade negotiations would be resolved with China. Since President Trump’s tweets on Sunday threatening to raise tariffs the market now yields about a 70% or lower chance of a resolution. This change is what is shocking the market downward.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average, S&P 500 and the Nasdaq Composite were all down more than 1.5% in midday trading on Tuesday.

Investors are waiting to see how the trade talks with China go this week but according to Siegel, President Trump will be watching the market.

“The strongest thing that Donald Trump has going for him in next year’s election is the economy and the stock market. He cannot afford that to falter,” said Siegel.

Siegel said Trump could potentially survive a mini sell-off if he comes through with a strong trade deal in the end. However, most people don’t like the volatility in the meantime.

The VIX, which is considered to be the best gauge of fear in the stock market, jumped more than 27% on Tuesday.

The meeting followed last week’s revelation that Foxconn has been renegotiating its deal with Wisconsin to build a $10 billion plant there, according to a letter from Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers to Foxconn executive Louis Woo. The letter said Foxconn had proposed changes to the deal at a meeting in March, CNBC reported.

In a statement last week, Foxconn did not deny seeking changes, but said it “has never wavered from our commitment to our contract with the State of Wisconsin and the creation of 13,000 jobs as part of our broader effort to make the Badger state a global technology hub.”

Benjamin Netanyahu wants new Golan Heights town named for Donald Trump

Benjamin Netanyahu wants new Golan Heights town named for Donald Trump

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, fresh off an election victory that will see him lead the country for a fifth term, said Tuesday he plans to push for a “new community” in the disputed Golan Heights to be named after President Donald Trump.

“All Israelis were deeply moved when President Trump made his historic decision to recognize Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights,” Netanyahu said in a video posted to YouTube. “Therefore, after the Passover holiday, I intend to bring to the government a resolution calling for a new community on the Golan Heights named after President Donald J. Trump.”

Trump announced in a March 25 presidential proclamation that the United States recognized Israeli sovereignty over the strategic plateau that Israel captured from Syria during the 1967 Six-Day War and later annexed. The move marked a dramatic change in policy that helped Netanyahu win reelection.

After the president’s proclamation, the European Union’s 28 member states unanimously declared that they still did not recognize Israel’s sovereignty over the disputed territory, citing United Nations Security Council resolutions forbidding the acquisition of territory through the use of force.

Al-Marsad, a Golan Heights-based human rights group, has denounced U.S. recognition of Israeli control, declaring after Trump’s announcement that it would legitimize “illegal aggression and occupation.”

“Syrians in the occupied Golan face calculated Israeli efforts to restrict their building and land use, destroy their enterprises, cleanse their Arab culture, manipulate their Syrian identity, and suffocate their freedom of movement,” the group wrote at the time.
