President Trump dismissed talk about a split inside his White House between aides who are nationalists and those who are globalists with a nationalist or globalist orientation. “Hey, I’m a nationalist and a globalist,” he said. “I’m both.” Putting America first is no longer part of the presidential rhetoric. Trump’s advisors, Gary Cohn and Steve Mnucin, are outspoken globalists with close ties to Goldman Sachs. Voters who trusted Trump to vigorously oppose globalist agendas in trade, international banking, and foreign policy are in shock. –GEG

President Trump told the Wall Street Journal on Thursday he’s “both” a “nationalist” and a “globalist”.

From the Wall Street Journal:

President Donald Trump was prepared to end the North American Free Trade Agreement deal, which had governed trade relations for the past 23 years, with a dramatic announcement Saturday at a Pennsylvania political rally marking his 100th day in office.

As rumors spread of the possible action, Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto called the president urging him not to pull out of the accord. “Let me think about it,” Mr. Trump said. Within a half hour a call came in from Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau with a similar request.

After the talks, Mr. Trump was convinced “they’re serious about it and I will negotiate rather than terminate,” the president said in an interview with The Wall Street Journal on Thursday.

…Watching events play out, veterans of past White Houses say Mr. Trump needs a more consistent, unified message. Part of the trouble may be that his White House is split into factions: a nationalist wing symbolized by chief strategist Steve Bannon that is wary of multinational treaties and trade deals, and a more mainstream group that is comfortable with the trend toward globalization.

That mainstream group has been actively sending reassuring signals to business leaders in other countries, even as they have been locked in internal battles in Washington.

One senior Toronto bank executive said Gary Cohn and Steven Mnuchin — former Goldman Sachs Group Inc. executives now serving as chairman of the White House National Economic Council and as Treasury Secretary, respectively — have on a few occasions reached out to senior Canadian business officials in recent weeks to counsel them that despite the internal Trump administration divides over trade policies, they expect no significant Nafta changes.

“This is a disputatious White House and we have to understand this is going to spill out into the public,” the Canadian banker said.

Atop the pyramid is Mr. Trump, who in his 1987 book, “The Art of the Deal,” wrote that he values flexibility above all: “I never get too attached to one deal or one approach,” he said.

Craig Fuller, who served eight years in former President Ronald Reagan’s White House, said in an interview: “The trouble here is I don’t see how you get a course correction when there isn’t a course. It’s just erratic.

“He needs to go look at the two factions inside the White House and get rid of one of them. You can’t operate that way in the White House.”

Despite California having a vigorous economy, 20% of Californians are suffering economic hardship, mostly due to the cost of housing. Moderate wage earners age 35 to 44 are leaving California due to rising crime, heavy traffic, a growing homeless epidemic and, especially high taxes. [These are the natural effects of collectivism.
