President Trump Announces US 'Precision' Airstrikes Against Syria

Trump to take another look at TPP 'disaster'

In a striking reversal, U.S. President Donald Trump has asked trade officials to explore the possibility of the United States rejoining the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement, a free trade deal he pulled out of during his first days in office as part of his "America First" agenda.

Trump tweeted late Thursday that he "would only join TPP if the deal were substantially better than the deal offered to Pres. Obama".

Trump clarified that he would continue to seek bilateral trade deals with the TPP nations, and specifically called out unfair trade practices with Japan.

Russian officials condemned the USA -led airstrikes on three sites in Syria early Saturday, calling the attacks "treacherous and insane" and a "clear and present danger to world peace".

Trump's interest in rejoining the TPP comes at a time when US trade relations with China are deteriorating. Aso added that the facts needed to be verified.

Kathua & Unnao Rape Case: Smriti Irani Attacks Rahul Gandhi for Midnight March
Gandhi's tweet came soon after PM Modi assured justice in Kathua and Unnao rape cases claiming that no criminal will be spared. In Jammu and Kashmir , an eight-year-old girl had disappeared from near her home in a village near Kathua on 10 January.

"That must change", he said.

Mr Trump said on Thursday the U.S. could re-enter the TPP if it could get a "better" deal, a major U-turn after leaving the Pacific trade pact past year and calling it a jobs killer.

Rejoining the 11-country pact could be a sharp reversal of fortune for many USA industries that stood to benefit from the trade agreement's favorable terms and Republican lawmakers who supported the pact.

The TPP, which now comprises 11 nations, was created to cut trade barriers in some of the fastest-growing economies of the Asia-Pacific region and to counter China's rising economic and diplomatic clout.

In another tweet today, he commented on Russian Federation and the U.S.'s dark relationship and said he wanted "all nations to work together".

Gen. Joseph Dunford, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said the US did not coordinate targets with or notify the Russian government of the strikes, beyond normal airspace "de-confliction" communications.

In response to Russia's threat against any action taken, Trump reacted by tweeting: "Get ready Russian Federation, because they will be coming, nice and new and 'smart!'" -China China tariff standoff.

Defense Secretary James Mattis said Wednesday during a congressional hearing that an attack was "not yet in the offing". "Could be very soon or not so soon at all!" he tweeted. "It will take a long time and also there is huge risk around ratification".

"Syria's responsible. We are all in agreement", State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert said earlier Friday. If only the United States had Mexico's draconian immigration laws. "The U.S. - the possessor of the biggest arsenal of chemical weapons - has no moral right to blame other countries". Still, rekindling negotiations could make it hard for China to play off the United States against its allies by promising to shift business from one to another if a trade war breaks out.

"There would be another process and so, at this stage we are talking hypotheticals".

Rugby Players Ireland issue statement on Paddy Jackson and Stuart Olding
The treatment that I have received since my acquittal, both fair and unfair, has made me even more determined to prove myself. The IRFU and Ulster Rugby conducted an internal review in the aftermath of the non-guilty verdict for Jackson and Olding.

Republicans in Congress have also been skeptical of Trump's tendencies on trade, and 25 Republican senators sent a letter to Trump urging him to re-engage with the pact "so that the American people can prosper from the tremendous opportunities that these trading partners bring". Many current members of the pact feel they already gave considerable ground to the United States to strike the original deal, particularly in sensitive areas like protections for pharmaceutical companies.
