Trump Can’t Stop Trade With North Korea. But He Does Have Options.

The United States has limited options. It could more broadly target Chinese companies that do business in North Korea. But that could prove ineffective against a Chinese government that worries that trade limits could worsen conditions in the North, making the situation there even more unpredictable.Continue reading the main story“If it really started to send their economy into a tailspin, they could lash out in a more extreme way,” said John Delury, a professor at Yonsei University in Seoul.North Korea’s test of a nuclear weapon on Sunday prompted White House officials to threaten new sanctions targeting businesses and countries that have continued to do business with Pyongyang. That prompted criticism from China on Monday, which called the idea of trade measures against it “unacceptable.”“This is neither objective nor fair,” Geng Shuang, a spokesman for China’s Foreign Ministry, said at a daily news briefing.In global trade terms, North Korea is basically a rounding error. Chinese trade with the North totaled only about $3 billion in the first seven months of 2017 — roughly the same as last year — as China buys less coal, clothing and other goods. (By comparison, the United States exported $11 billion in corn in 2016.)Still, even as China buys less, it is exporting more. […]

Trump Cautious on China Inquiry Over Intellectual Property Theft

It is not clear how much time the additional step will add to the process. If approved, the investigation is expected to take as long as a year, officials said.The delay was welcomed by those who have been worried about the president’s protectionist tendencies. The Trump administration was expected to move directly into the investigation, so the memorandum reflects the more measured approach the administration also appears to be taking with steel and aluminum.“If this is the expression of Trumpian economic nationalism, most trade advocates are going to breath a sigh of relief,” said Scott Lincicome, an international trade attorney at the law firm White & Case.Newsletter Sign UpContinue reading the main storyThank you for subscribing.An error has occurred. Please try again later.You are already subscribed to this email.View all New York Times newsletters.The White House has sent mixed messages on the policy, as Mr. Trump’s campaign-rally denunciations of China collide with the complexities of a codependent geopolitical relationship. The president has publicly linked the issue of trade fairness with his calls on China to pressure North Korea to drop its weapons program and inflammatory rhetoric. Yet he and President Xi Jinping of China did not discuss this latest action in a phone conversation Friday night, and officials told reporters on Saturday that addressing intellectual property theft had been on their agenda since the president took office.“This is a critical action, and long overdue,” said Michael Wessel, a member of the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission, a bipartisan group created by Congress in 2000 to monitor trade and security issues between the world’s two largest economies.“China’s been engaged in the theft and forced transfer of U.S […]

Report: Kushner Company Subpoenaed Over Investment-for-Visas Program

Federal prosecutors have reportedly subpoenaed Kushner Companies, the property development business owned by White House senior adviser Jared Kushner’s family, over its use of an investment-for-visas program to finance a Jersey City development project. The subpoena, issued in May by the Brooklyn U.S. attorney’s office, concerns a development called One Journal Square that was reportedly partly financed by the EB-5 federal visa program, the Wall Street Journal reports. The program offers green cards to immigrants who invest at least $500,000 in certain U.S. businesses, and Kushner Companies came under fire for using the program to draw Chinese investors back in May. It was not immediately clear what potential violations are under review by the U.S. attorney, nor whether other Kushner Companies developments are under scrutiny. Emily Wolf, general counsel for Kushner Companies, issued a statement saying the company was “cooperating with legal requests for information” but had done “nothing improper” in its use of the EB-5 program.
