It’s finally Friday.

It’s Michael Flynn day, everyone is saying.

President Trump has tweeted 6 times so far.

1. Sean Davis, The Federalist

2. Propaganda Video. Including Trump voice over.

3. …the Dems won’t do the quick and easy fix.

4. Because of the Dems, our Immigration Laws are BAD.

5. The Tariff is about stopping drugs as well as illegals!

6. We have a 100 Billion Dollar Trade Deficit with Mexico. It’s time!

Economy and Trade.

Fox Business reported on Thursday that the U.S. “no longer has the most competitive economy in the world, according to annual rankings compiled by the Switzerland-based business school IMD.”

According to the study the U.S. has dropped to third on the list, they cite “higher fuel prices, weaker high-tech exports, fluctuations in the value of the dollar and the fading impact of President Trump’s massive tax overhaul.”

The study looked at 235 factors from each of the ranked economies, such as, unemployment, GDP, and the countries government spending.

As the News Blender reported on Friday, President Trump via Twitter Thursday, announced his intention to place a five percent blanket tariff on all goods imported to the U.S. from Mexico, with the tariff increasing monthly until Mexico works to stop illegals entering the U.S. border via the Southern Border.

On May 17th, the President while speaking with the National Association of Realtors, announced that the U.S. had reached a deal with Mexico and Canada to remove tariffs on metal imports shipped from both countries into the U.S..

In his remarks he explained, “I’m pleased to announce that we’ve just reached an agreement with Canada and Mexico, and we’ll be selling our product into those countries without the imposition of tariffs or major tariffs.  Big difference.”

At the time the New York Times reported that in a statement the U.S. trade representative said in exchange for the lifting of metal import tariffs imposed by the U.S., that Mexico and Canada “had agreed on the removal of all retaliatory tariffs imposed on American goods by those countries.”

Politico reported at the time of the announcement that the lifting of the metal import tariffs cleared a “major hurdle to ratification of the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement in all three countries and moves President Donald Trump closer to realization of a signature trade achievement that he could tout during his 2020 reelection campaign.”

The five percent blanket tariff on Mexico imports came shortly after Robert Lighthizer, the U.S. Trade Representative sent a letter to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) notifying Congress that The White House had started the approval process to ratify the new USMCA trade deal between, the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.

He explained “Canada and Mexico have formally initiated their ratification process. It is time for the United States to uphold our end of the bargain.”

The Hill notes that letter starts a minimum 30-day “period before the implementing legislation would be sent to Congress, though it is possible the White House could further delay introducing the legislation to provide more time for negotiations.”

For what it’s worth. 

On May 6th, Reuters reported that the U.S. would impose a 17.5 percent tariff on “Mexican tomato imports,” that started Tuesday May 7th.

That means that the new 5 percent tariff will be added to the 17.5 percent tomato tariff.

The Other Stuff.

Tweet 1, Attorney General William Barr decided against charging President Trump with obstruction of justice, based on Mueller’s 448 page report, he testified before the Senate he did not review the underlying evidence that Mueller provided the AG.

My question to Sean Davis, is which is it, does the report clear the President or doesn’t it?

Barr’s testimony led many to wonder if Barr even read the redacted publicly available report.

How our Constitutional Republic works, Dems typically don’t pass laws on their own, yes, Obamacare passed without Republican support, that is atypical of how it works and considering shortly after the D’s passed said law they lost several seats in the Senate, plus the House, and across states, they were told just how atypical that was.

Authors note, while I do try most days to in fact update this article, this article today will most likely not be update as I’m in the process of moving we are in the last stages, meaning, real life is taking over my online one. I hope y’all enjoy Friday.

This is an Open Thread.
