Trump’s Tough Trade Talk Didn’t Stop His Admin From Waiving Steel Tariffs

WASHINGTON (AP) — Despite President Donald Trump’s tough talk on trade, his administration has granted hundreds of companies permission to import millions of tons of steel made in China, Japan and other countries without paying the hefty tariff he put in place to protect U.S. manufacturers and jobs, according to an Associated Press analysis.

Roundup: Valencia basketball takes down Temecula Valley at home

VALENCIA >> Early in the fourth quarter, Valencia senior guard Richard Kawakami drove to the basket and as he rose up to the basket, he was hit on his head.

Thomas Piketty explains how Elizabeth Warren's wealth tax is American as apple pie
