The US Owes Mexico Hundreds Of Millions Of Dollars Because Of Tuna

The U.S. owes Mexico $163 million a year, according to the World Trade Organization. 

That's because the U.S. had been penalizing Mexico over tuna — claiming the product from Mexico wasn't "dolphin safe," which means no dolphins were killed by the fishermen. 

Mexico challenged that with the WTO, claiming its fishermen followed all international rules and regulations. 

The WTO agreed and ruled that Mexico could place trade sanctions on the U.S. of up to $163 million a year, enough to make up Mexico's estimated loss. 

The additional tariffs won't add much to the nearly $50 billion trade deficit the U.S. already holds with Mexico. But the ruling is a political black eye for President Trump, who still insists Mexico will pay for a border wall between it and the U.S.

And the WTO order is another wrinkle in Trump's plans to get a better trade deal with Mexico by renegotiating the North American Free Trade Agreement, or NAFTA.


GOP budget plan avoids government shutdown by caving on border wall funding

President Trump’s ‘beautiful’ border wall is hitting some formidable stumbling blocks, and now a report says the Republicans are offering a budget to Democrats without border wall funding to stave off a government shutdown.

Trump told reporters Monday that he might revisit the border wall funding in September and allow Congress to skip it for budget negotiations this week. The president assured followers on Twitter that he was not abandoning the wall he promised over and over during his campaign.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) praised Trump’s willingness to postpone the funding in a statement Monday night. “It’s good for the country that President Trump is taking the wall off the table in these negotiations,” it read. “Now the bipartisan and bicameral negotiators can continue working on the outstanding issues.”

It appears that Trump and the GOP backed down on the border wall as a report surfaced Tuesday that they were willing to keep government running by abandoning funding for the border wall. The Trump administration had asked for $1 billion to begin construction, a small down payment on what is expected to cost anywhere between $10 billion to $70 billion.

Apr.25 -- Bloombergs Kevin Cirilli reports on President Trumps possible shift in the funding of the wall on the Mexican border, preventing a government shutdown, and trade relations with Canada. He speaks with Mark Barton on "Bloomberg Markets."

Earlier Tuesday right-wing talk show host Rush Limbaugh delivered the sad news to his listeners that it appeared that Trump was caving on the border wall. “It looks like, from here, right here, right now,” Limbaugh said slowly, “it looks like President Trump is caving on his demand for a measly $1 billion in the budget for his wall on the border with Mexico.”

Despite the stumbling blocks, Trump’s rhetoric is credited with the precipitous drop in illegal border crossings that have forced even his detractors to admit is a good thing.

First doctors, now bunnies. A valuable giant rabbit that was “fit as a fiddle” — and destined to be the world’s biggest bunny — mysteriously died while flying United, a report says. “Something very strange has happened and I want to know what,” fumed breeder Annette Edwards, 65, of the UK. “I’ve sent rabbits all...

"It ended up taking...six weeks of island hopping and questioning strangers in the street before he found his first intersexual pig." Which wasn't a big deal, until it led to the discovery of dogs with dexterity between that of a cat and a monkey [Strange]
