Impact of US tax cuts
U.S. President Donald Trump's role model is his Republican predecessor Ronald Reagan. Former President Reagan's two most essential policies were the “Star Wars” program and massive tax cuts, mainly for the rich.
Trump, Republicans should let Mueller do his job
As President Donald Trump's lawyers were preparing this week to meet with special counsel Robert S. Mueller III, their client continued to undermine Mueller's investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia in the 2016 election.
Punks, not politicians
When Trump got elected, many speculated this would “make punk music great again.” But what does that mean for Korea, which deposed an unpopular authoritarian president and replaced her with a liberal human rights lawyer?
Trump doctrine
A new U.S. national security strategy declared Monday by President Donald Trump is based on his “America first” mantra. It sent a clear and strong message to the world that the United State will stand up for itself to defend its national interests at all costs.
Chinese aircraft intrusion
China is going too far in its relations with the Republic of Korea despite President Moon Jae-in's state visit to Beijing last week as proved by its five military airplanes' intrusion into the air defense identification zones of Korea and Japan on Monday.
Pride and pragmatism
President Moon Jae-in's four-day state visit to China last week has left some points to ponder about good diplomacy. The rival political parties disagree on most issues, but their assessments of Moon's China visit couldn't be more of a contrast.
GOP tax 'reform' is huge gamble
With the word Friday that Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Florida, was on board after winning a concession _ expanded access to the child tax credit for low- and middle-income households _ the Republican plan to cut taxes by $1.5 trillion over the next 10 years seems certain to be passed by Congress and signed by President Donald Trump in coming days.
Running out of Rhetoric on North Korea
A riveting Security Council session condemned North Korea for its nuclear proliferation and illegal ballistic missile firings. The meeting at the ministerial level saw foreign ministers and delegates nearly universally condemn Pyongyang's provocative actions which have brought the world to the brink of conflict. Now what?
Thaw the Freeze for Freeze
China's proposal of a “freeze for freeze” deserves some comment. I'll eventually say it needs a thaw. China claims to want a nonnuclear peninsula. Never mind her nukes or those of America and other players. China proposes the North halt her nuclear tests (freeze) in exchange for the U.S. and South Korea ending their military exercises (for freeze). Trump claims Xi knows it's a nonstarter. The Chinese government continues to state it as a serious proposal. The North needs to agree but has already shown its contempt for the idea.
Setback to diplomacy
President Moon Jae-in wrapped up his four-day state visit to China Saturday. His summit with Chinese President Xi Jinping has certainly provided an impetus to mend ties between the two countries, which have been strained over the deployment of a U.S. anti-missile battery in South Korea.
