Michael Anton
General [H.R.] McMaster greatly appreciates Derek Harvey's service to his country as a career Army officer, where he served his country bravely in the field and played a crucial role in the successful surge in Iraq, and also for his service on Capitol Hill and in the Trump administration. The administration is working with Colonel Harvey to identify positions in which his background and expertise can be best utilized.feedback

Scott Kennedy

The Trump administration is pushing as hard on Korea, Japan and others that have trade surpluses with the U.S. at the same time as they're pushing on China, and we all need to actually work together to deal with the China problem.feedback

Seth Meyers

If you've been following the recent saga of the Republican healthcare bill, which, once again, failed to get the necessary votes to pass, you might think the Trump administration isn't accomplishing anything. But there is one department, the EPA, that has actually been quietly implementing big changes, unfortunately for the benefit of a select few.feedback

Seth Meyers

The company that makes the pesticide in question has close ties to the White House. Dow's CEO, Andrew Liveris, heads up the White House manufacturing working group, and there he was, right by Trump's side, as he signed an executive order on reducing regulations across government agencies back in January. So the Trump administration is vehemently anti-leak, unless that leak is methane.feedback

Ames Grawert

If you're going to see anything from the Trump administration proposing new [or longer] mandatory minimums and a general return to the tough on crime tactics, I think you'll see those recommendations made by the task force.feedback

Frank Bruni

If only corporate America and the Trump administration were like television.feedback

Christopher Whalen

If you see Cohn go to the Fed, to me, that's an escape path for him and that means that Goldman has given up on the Trump administration.feedback

Sergey Lavrov

How is it possible to take away property formalized by a ratified inter-governmental document? And what kind of principle is it to say 'What's mine is mine, and we'll divide what's yours' while discussing its return? Decent and well brought up people don't behave this way. I am confident that the Trump administration has some reasonable people who realize that the Obama administration had made a decision to seize diplomatic real estate and to evict Russian diplomats and their families when the administration was in its death throes.feedback

Richard Branson - Virgin Group

I think there is a big difference between Americans and the Trump administration. America is full of brilliant, brilliant people with brilliant minds who want to do the right thing. The sad thing is that some of the things that are coming out of the Trump administration seem to be anything but that. And obviously, seeing as today we are talking about climate change, it was America first and our beautiful globe last. And it does seem incredibly sad. So there is by no means any guarantee we will change his mind.feedback

Trevor Noah

The Trump administration is allergic to facts. Instead of focusing on the numbers, Trump's team says we should focus on what we believe. Yes, we believe everyone's going to be covered. Some by insurance, some by the sheets that the coroners place over them because they can't afford healthcare. On some level, you have to be impressed that Mitch McConnell and his friends have written a bill so bad that their own party hates it. The only question is when something is so deeply unpopular, how could you possible make it worse?feedback

David Victor

There's no relationship between what we're seeing in the real world and what the Trump administration is doing in terms of energy policy.feedback

Kristen Monsell

Approving this Arctic drilling plan at the 11th hour makes a dangerous project even riskier. An oil spill here would do incredible damage, and it would be impossible to clean up. The Trump administration clearly cares only about appeasing oil companies, no matter its legal obligations or the threats to polar bears or our planet.feedback

Ron Wyden

It is surprising that in key areas the Trump administration is seeking outcomes that were achieved in the T.P.P., which the president said was a bad agreement.feedback

John Hoellwarth

A lot of the things that are moving the Department of Veterans Affairs in the right direction actually got underway before the Trump administration.feedback

Jan Hasselman

This decision marks an important turning point. Until now, the rights of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe have been disregarded by the builders of the Dakota Access Pipeline and the Trump administration–prompting a well-deserved global outcry. The federal courts have stepped in where our political systems have failed to protect the rights of Native communities.feedback

Matt Latimer

It's a book about leadership and his search for truth, informed by lessons and experiences he's had throughout his career, including his recent experiences in the Trump administration. It will speak to a broader desire in our country for more ethical leadership.feedback

Takuji Okubo

I think it's simply wishful thinking that the Trump administration will change its mind about the T.P.P. So long as he remains the president I don't think he will actually make that turnaround.feedback

Sarah Binder

Strategic attorneys general can likely chart a path through Democratic-leaning courts - making it harder on the Trump administration to pursue its agenda through executive action.feedback

JoDee Winterhof - Human Rights Campaign

Sessions' alarming comments proved what LGBTQ and civil rights leaders know to be true – that he cannot be trusted. A month ago, he vowed to protect transgender women from violent attacks and now we find him promoting license to discriminate laws. This is another predictable step for the anti-LGBTQ Trump-Pence Administration.feedback

Kamala Harris

During his confirmation hearing, Mr. Kelly came across as this person who would be a moderating voice in the Trump administration, someone who would speak truth to power. But that's not what we're seeing from him as secretary of Homeland Security. Under him, this agency has seemed eager to carry out the destructive immigration policies of this administration.feedback

Donovan Richards

With the Trump administration in place, people who don't necessarily even believe in climate change, I'm really worried whether the money will even be there.feedback

Vince Willmore - Campaign For Tobacco-Free Kids

With the new Trump administration and Congress trying to roll back health and safety regulations, generally the tobacco industry is seizing the opportunity to mount its own assault on the programs and policies that have reduced smoking in this country.feedback

Terry McAuliffe

It's a shame that the dysfunction of the Trump administration killed this project and will likely make it harder for the FBI to do its job.feedback

Gina M. Raimondo

It's important for us to figure out a way to speak with one voice to the Trump administration to explain that this is going to hurt a lot of people in a lot of states, regardless of whether there's a Democrat or Republican in the governor's mansion.feedback

John Logsdon

The right thing to say is, nobody knows. The budget the Trump administration approved for NASA is basically a holding budget.feedback

Nancy McLernon - Organization for International Investment

It is great to see the [Trump] administration recognize the detrimental impact that these regulations will have on America's economic competitiveness.feedback

Andrew Steer - World Resources Institute

In the end, it was a landslide victory for countries voicing support for global climate action. Chancellor Merkel demonstrated deft leadership in rallying 19 of the world's largest economies to deliver an unmistakable message behind climate action. The direction of travel toward clean energy is loud and clear. The question remains how quickly the world will surge forward and how far behind the Trump administration will let the United States fall.feedback

Vivek Stalam - New Street Research

The business community is watching intensely to see what an antitrust D.O.J. will look like in the Trump administration and how much of the rhetoric from the campaign trickles down into policy. People are looking at AT&T-Time Warner as the first indicator of what that will be like.feedback

Ian Prior

Keeping this country safe from terrorists is the highest priority of the Trump administration. Recent attacks in Europe and elsewhere confirm that the threat to our nation is immediate and real, and it remains essential that we use every lawful tool available to prevent as many attacks as possible.feedback

Chad Bown - Peterson Institute for International Economics

The big concern with the Trump administration is their commitment to the W.T.O. system and whether it bothers them to have the system weakened.feedback

Jim Cramer

If that [bill] fails – and it probably will, which I've been telling you from the beginning – then we're going to have to accept that this market likely won't be getting much assistance from the Trump administration. In fact, the only thing coming from Washington is rate hikes from the Fed and potential bond sales, which is only good news for you if you're a bank CEO. Bad for everyone else.feedback

Frank Aum

I don't think the Trump administration sees any other options. They don't really believe in negotiations at this point. They feel like they need to apply greater financial pressure.feedback

Bjoern Conrad

Now the focus of the Trump administration shifts once more – and China is back in the cross-hairs.feedback

Michael Jasny

I don't think you'll see the public opposition wane at all. And you'll see the Trump administration taken to court.feedback

Jeff Rathke

Poland is, in some ways, a poster child for some of the issues that the Trump administration has been stressing. They're betting that this relationship with the United States on defense will balance their concerns about the possible directions of U.S.-Russia policy.feedback

Betsy Greer

The Trump administration has basically given us a trope of what happens when we get too disconnected from ourselves, our realities and people who are different than us.feedback

Christopher Hill

I think this is really going to take some time and effort on the part of the Trump administration to convince the Chinese, No, the U.S. does not want to put troops up on the Yalu river or a listening post.feedback

Christopher Hill

I think the problem the Trump administration has had with China is they look at China as a sort of outsourcing place, where they can kind of turn it over to China and tell the Chinese, you figure it out.feedback

Gary Younge

The activist and author speaks to Gary Younge about her book No is Not Enough, and the importance of finding a way to push back against the shock politics of the Trump administration.

Anthony Ruggiero

This is a strong message to Chinese leaders that the Trump administration will act against North Korea's sanctions evasion in China.feedback

Vanita Gupta

It's past time for the Trump administration and the Sessions Justice Department to demonstrate, through action and its megaphone, its full and unflagging commitment to preventing hate-based violence and harassment that hurts our communities and destroys the fabric of our nation.feedback

David Konisky

This new framing of energy policy around the idea of dominance is a thinly-veiled attempt to justify unfettered development of fossil fuels and rollbacks of environmental protections. The Trump Administration continues to give lip service to clean energy, while simultaneously rescinding the very policies intended to hasten its development.feedback

Julius Krein

There's no such thing as the Trump administration in any conventional sense.feedback

Rick Perry

I see this as an opportunity to allow an American natural resource to help bolster both countries' economies. The overall goal of the Trump administration is to sell what Americans make to bolster this economy. If you are selling it to a partner, a neighbor, even better.feedback

Tom Finke

Could there be a correction based on disappointment with the Trump administration undoing some of the bump? Sure, but we're probably seeing that as buying opportunity for good value credits.feedback

Seth Meyers

When asked about criminal justice reform in general, Trump seemed to have no idea what he was talking about. GEO Group also donated $100,000 to Rebuild America Now, a pro-Trump Super PAC. So now GEO Group has a contract to build the first new immigrant detention center under the Trump administration in Texas, set to open by the end of next year.feedback

Carlos Curbelo

The president remains an entity in and of itself, not a part of the traditional Republican Party. I handle the Trump administration the same way I handled the Obama administration. When I agree, I work with them. When I oppose, I don't.feedback

Russell Fishkind

Many individual trustees are concerned about assuming responsibilities for a loved one. If you show them the resources are there and give them directions to dispense their fiduciary duty, it's not as daunting. We've seen a tremendous shift from the Obama administration to the Trump administration in goals and objectives for providing healthcare plans. You need to take matters into your own hands.feedback

Gregor Robertson

The Trump administration better watch out for US cities. They are on the rise and I think they will prevail in the end, turning the tide and making sure that the US is a climate leader, rather than what is happening currently.feedback

Michael Brune - Sierra Club

Once again, the Trump administration has agreed to do the bidding of the worst polluters in our country, and once again it's putting the health of American families and communities at risk. We will fight this and every other attempt by polluters and the Trump administration to destroy our water resources.feedback

Peter Costa

The market likes certainty and now there's uncertainty. What is this (health bill) going to look like when this gets out of the next iteration? That uncertainty I think is just having people pause a little bit. I also think that when the market gets to certain levels, any type of uncertainty, especially in anything that has to do with the (Trump) administration, will have an adverse effect.feedback

Rick Perry

Everybody in the private sector is going to look after their interests and their stockholders' interests. I get that, and that's fine and good. The Trump administration is going to make decisions on how to sell American products, create American jobs, and if that helps bolster the relationship with Mexico and Canada in a North America energy strategy, then there is a lot of reason to celebrate.feedback

Ken Paxton

It's reassuring to know that the Trump administration believes in upholding the Constitution and defending the rule of law.feedback

Stephen Colbert

To the beautiful and friendly Russian people. I don't understand why no members of the Trump administration can remember meeting you. If anyone would like to work on my campaign in an unofficial capacity, please just let me know.feedback

Stephen Colbert

I don't understand why no members of the Trump administration can remember meeting you. I am here to announce that I am considering a run for president in 2020, and I thought it would be better to cut out the middleman and just tell the Russians myself. If anyone would like to work on my campaign in an unofficial capacity, please just let me know.feedback

Barry Burden

It is a bit surprising that Democrats haven't managed a single victory yet, and haven't had more success in turning their anger against the Trump administration into something tangible. The party can weather that for a while, but at some point it could become demoralizing.feedback

Jaret Seiberg

We see today's ... stress test results as a positive for Trump administration efforts to deregulate the banks.feedback

Irvin B. Nathan

The Trump administration has no right to stonewall questions from lawmakers.feedback

Larry Levitt

There is no question that Anthem has soured on the marketplace, given underlying instability and the tremendous uncertainty stoked by the Trump administration and the health-care debate in Congress. Assuming other insurers in Indiana and Wisconsin stick around, there will still be at least one insurer in all counties in these states.feedback

Mark Dubowitz

The Obama administration would take the exact same position that the Trump administration is taking right now on waivers – any administration would – but this is as much about politics as about the ever-present tension between the executive branch and the legislative branch over sanctions.feedback

Corin Tucker

For me, performing live with someone is the true litmus test of collaboration. I remember our first Filthy Friends show together in Portland, I was able to turn to Peter onstage, and really read him then, as wide open to possibility, spontaneity and creative sparks. I'm inspired by all of the states who have committed to the Paris Climate Agreement on their own. We need to keep moving on this issue despite the actions of the Trump administration.feedback

Eric Altbach - Albright Stonebridge Group

This initial period of calm in the U.S.-China relationship was not sustainable. We're reaching the end of the beginning for the Trump administration, and things are only going to get worse.feedback

Jeff Sessions

You are on the front lines of the battle to keep us safe. You are the force multiplier that will make this work a success. The Department of Justice and I are here to empower, support, and partner with you to carry out your mission. Turning back the recent troubling increase in violent crime in our country is a top priority of the Department of Justice and the Trump Administration, as we work to fulfill the president's promise to make America safe again.feedback

John Delury

Perhaps his condition deteriorated and the authorities decided it was better to release him in a coma than as a corpse. North Koreans might have feelers out to see if there is a deal to be made with the Trump administration, and releasing Mr. Warmbier is a way to move that process along, while also removing what could be an obstacle down the road.feedback

Greg Hayes

The Indianapolis situation was difficult … I think we came to an agreement with the new Trump administration in terms of saving 800 jobs and keeping the plant open and we have kept that commitment. Unfortunately we have also continued to remove some jobs out as we had expected to do.feedback

Scott Schoettes

The decision to resign from government service is not one that any of us take lightly. However, we cannot ignore the many signs that the Trump administration does not take the on-going epidemic or the needs of people living with HIV seriously. Because we do not believe the Trump Administration is listening to – or cares – about the communities we serve as members of PACHA, we have decided it is time to step down.feedback

Beth Ann Bovino - Standard & Poor's

Promises are not policies and the Trump administration is going to face the reality of a slow legislative process, despite the fact that we have a majority of Republicans in Congress.feedback

Robert Law

The Trump administration is affirmatively saying that 'we are keeping in place a program that we've repeatedly said was lawless and unconstitutional.feedback

James Williams

We are encouraged that the Trump administration wants to help Cuba's private sector. Unfortunately, the people who will be most negatively impacted by this directive are Cuban entrepreneurs. The confusion that will surround this policy will undoubtedly stifle U.S. demand to travel to the island.feedback

David Sandalow

Civil servants deserve our thanks, not the disrespect they're being shown by the Trump administration. At Interior, they protect national treasures. At the Energy Department, they invest in innovative technologies. The White House should be supporting their work, not trying to 'deconstruct the administrative state.feedback

Arne Sorenson - Marriott International

We urge the Trump administration to recognize and utilize travel as a strategic tool in its efforts to improve relations with Cuba, allowing us to be part of a promising future, as opposed to reverting to the policies of the past.feedback

Stefan Grobe - Euronews

And it doesn't help the Trump administration that the Special Counsel was appointed by the Trump administration.feedback

William Jackson - Capital Economics

Russian stocks are responding to the bill passed by the U.S. Senate last night which would tighten the sanctions regime if signed into law. Early signs are that (the bill) won't have a very big macroeconomic impact, but ... as far as there were any hopes that sanctions might be eased or lifted gradually under the Trump administration, that is not going to happen.feedback

Daniel Russel

The Trump administration has made it quite clear that this is an all-of-the-above approach. They will explore what kind of official or unofficial contacts with North Korea can advance the cause.feedback

Kristina Hooper - Allianz Global Investors

There's more concern, but it's not general concern about risk, it's more focused on the diminishing expectations for the Trump administration agenda.feedback

Bob Corker

With overwhelming Senate passage of the Russia sanctions amendment, the U.S. sends a strong signal to President Putin while ensuring the Trump administration has the flexibility it needs. The Russian government continues to violate the sovereignty of Ukraine, aggravate the crisis in Syria, and destabilize democracies around the world. This amendment makes clear that we will not continue to tolerate such actions, and I am glad we are one step closer to passage of our legislation to hold Iran accountable.feedback

Mark Eibel - Russell Investments

We do think we're due for a correction in U.S. stocks [and] a key risk is lack of policy follow-through. At some point the market will get tired of waiting for tax reform and other key policies from the Trump administration. There's a continued risk to the downside.feedback

Xavier Becerra

The Department of Energy is blocking common-sense energy efficiency standards. This is absurd. The Trump Administration should stop stalling and start following the law.feedback

Ben Cardin

The Administration's notice to us that they are about to start delivering precision-guided munitions in 30 days from a previous sale shows that the Saudis won't be running out of these weapons anytime soon. We need to send a message to both the Trump Administration and the Saudis to work much harder to avoid civilian casualties, expedite humanitarian relief, and push for a peaceful end to the war through a negotiated political settlement.feedback

Chuck Schumer

Unfortunately, the Attorney General repeatedly refused to answer pertinent questions from members of the Senate Intelligence Committee without offering a scintilla of a legal justification for doing so. This is part of a repeated and troubling pattern from Trump administration officials who clam up and refuse to answer questions about the Russia investigation, even though cabinet officials have had no qualms talking about their conversations with the President.feedback

Peter Boockvar - The Lindsey Group

The bottom line continues to be that small businesses remain hopeful for positive policy changes out of the [Trump] Administration. Companies are still hiring but not really increasing investments in their business. On the former, a growing issue is the dearth of supply for qualified workers which we keep talking about.feedback

Jim O'Hara - Center for Science in the Public Interest

The ability of the Trump administration to repeat its mistakes is breathtaking. Just like with the menu-labeling delay, this administration is denying consumers critical information they need to make decisions, and it's throwing the food industry into disarray. It doesn't help consumers. And ultimately it doesn't help industry, either.feedback

Andrea Prasow - Human Rights Watch

Nearly half of the U.S. Senate sent an overwhelmingly clear message to Riyadh that if it wants to return to a time of unequivocal U.S. support, it needs to stop killing civilians in Yemen. The Trump administration should take notice and use this statement as an opportunity to press the Saudis to change their behavior in Yemen – to focus on protecting civilians, and to be transparent about its conduct in this devastating war.feedback

Grant Rumley

I think it's a dangerous approach, however, and one that ultimately will hurt everyday Gazans. Abbas wants to be the central address for the Trump administration but while squeezing Gaza financially may put his political rivals in a bind, it will likely only widen the gap between him and the people.feedback

James Wagner

Right now, I'm more worried about the economy and that [the Trump administration] want[s] to take the VA and privatize it. That ain't gonna work.feedback

Randi Spivak

Zinke's recommendation is a slap in the face to the tribes that sought protection for Bears Ears and any American who values our incredible public lands. Sadly, this is yet another corrupt process from the Trump administration that ignores public sentiment and rewards polluting industries that view our public lands as simply another source of profit. … It's time for Zinke to stop pretending he's a Teddy Roosevelt kind of a guy. President Roosevelt would be ashamed of him.feedback

Tobias Levkovich - Citi

In some respects, one of the scariest charts to look at currently is the number of announced mergers and acquisition deals over the past year or two. M&A lawyers argue the 'uncertainty' factor, which has come about recently, given some unpredictable aspects of the new Trump administration, has been the issue.feedback

Nestor Duprey

I think it's a useless exercise, because we have seen that the Trump administration and Congress have not showed the slightest interest in the process itself, much less the will of the people of Puerto Rico. Supporters of statehood did not seem enthusiastic about this plebiscite as they were five years ago.feedback

Jamie Gorelick

The Trump administration has made people unusually uneasy, to say the least.feedback

Martin Heinrich

There are reports that the incoming Trump administration ... attempted to set up a sort of back-door communication channel with the Russian government using their infrastructure, their devices or facilities. What would be the risks ... to setting up unauthorized channels with a hostile foreign government, especially if they were to evade our own American intelligence services?feedback

Charles Fried

I would've thought until just recently that one would be willing to take the job of solicitor general even in a Trump administration.feedback

Kirk Vashaw

To be honest, I'm just very disappointed that the Trump administration didn't do more to level the playing field, which is something they promised over and over again to do for the American worker. This was an opportunity to do that, and they didn't.feedback

Mike Kreidler

For months, we've worked closely with our health insurers and other stakeholders in a concerted effort to try to explain to the Trump administration and congressional leaders what the impact could be to our market and most importantly, to our consumers, if this level of uncertainty and volatility continued. Today, our predictions came true.feedback

Mike Kreidler

I'm deeply troubled by the changes we're seeing for next year's health insurance market. The proposed drop in insurers and coverage areas clearly indicates to me that the uncertainty the Trump administration and the GOP-controlled Congress has sowed for months is sabotaging the progress we've made.feedback

Marguerite Jimenez

The Trump administration is zeroing in on human rights, as though a potential roll-back of Cuba regulation is being done in the name of Cuban rights. We in the human-rights community are working to get the message out, not in our name.' There's absolutely no human-rights ground that is justifiable in rolling back this policy.feedback

John Canavan - Stone & McCarthy Research Associates

It leaves us where we were before. It becomes that much more difficult for the Trump administration to put together a fiscal stimulus package. Anything they could put together with tax reform and infrastructure spending would be a lot smaller than had been expected. You are also pushing back the timing on any fiscal stimulus into 2018, possibly in 2019.feedback

Boris Epshteyn

From the very start of the Trump administration, the press briefings have veered way off course, becoming more theater than information gathering – theater in which, frankly, the press has often played the leading role.feedback

Andrew Light - World Resources Institute

The question is whether the Trump administration still shows up for those discussions. If they really are pushing to 'renegotiate' the deal, as they say, I don't see why they wouldn't go.feedback

Stephen Colbert

This is how democracy ends. With a fake email sent to the ancient cat lady manning the polling station at your high school gym. The leaker's name, and this is true: Reality Winner. So it's official, the Trump administration is at war with Reality.feedback

John Weingart

It seems like people are pre-occupied and somewhat exhausted by everything that's happening in national politics. Normally in New Jersey the governor's race is the subject of intense discussion among people who pay attention to politics for months leading up to it, but I think one of the reasons that's not happening is because first, the 2016 campaign and then the first months of the Trump administration have sucked up all the oxygen.feedback

Jamil Dakwar

It's hard to take Ambassador Haley seriously on U.S. support for human rights in light of Trump administration actions like the Muslim ban and immigration crackdowns. The United States must get its own house in order and make human rights at home a priority – then, it can begin to credibly demand the same of other countries abroad.feedback

Gary Watson

I think the Trump administration is very interested in looking at the situation. A number of companies are very anxious to get in there and start extracting uranium. There is no danger.feedback

Kentaro Tamura

Even after this Trump administration announcement, most of the businesspeople will not change their minds or opinions.feedback

Teresa Miller

The 506,000 Pennsylvanians with Affordable Care Act-compliant plans in the individual market deserve single-digit rate increases like the ones most people will see if Congress and the Trump Administration choose not to risk consumers' health and financial well-being by jeopardizing the stability of these markets.feedback

Clare McCann

It's not like the Trump administration could do this on their own. They're definitely taking time out from other work to focus on this legislative proposal that doesn't have a clear benefit. It seems like an odd use of time given how understaffed they are and how many things are on their plate.feedback

Michael Becker

Mortgage rates are near their lows for 2017. This despite the fact that the Federal Reserve continues to talk about rate hikes. I believe this is because markets are starting to discount the ability of the Trump administration to pass its pro-growth agenda, and the fact that economic data is coming in softer than expected. … I expect rates to stay low longer than most expect. But given that they are near the lows of the year I don't see them dropping further.feedback

Ben Rhodes

Given their complete lack of concern for human rights around the world, it would be a tragic irony if the Trump administration uses that to justify policies that harm the Cuban people and restrict the freedom of Americans to travel and do business where they please. It's clear that the Cuban and American people want to move forward, and nothing can change that reality.feedback

Annie Leonard - Greenpeace

This is disgraceful. By withdrawing from the Paris Climate Agreement, the Trump administration has turned America from a global climate leader into a global climate deadbeat.feedback

Ben Jealous

Since President Trump has come into office he has repeatedly bowed and submitted to the will of the most extreme members of the President Trump administration. He has aligned himself with the Trump administration by his misguided action and his so cowardly silence.feedback

Xiao Wunan

The reason we want to invest in the U.S. isn't only because the Trump administration is encouraging it. The U.S. has natural advantages for [Chinese] investment.feedback

Luke Kemp

Wanting the US to remain is a short-sighted, knee-jerk reaction. The international community should be much more worried about the real domestic actions of the US, rather than whether it is symbolically cooperating internationally. The US and the Trump administration can do more damage inside the agreement than outside it.feedback

David Bossie

The Trump administration has contacted him but hasn't offered him a job yet. They have talked to many people, including me. It's an ongoing conversation and that's a fair way to put it.feedback

Sarah Hutto

With the recent reports on the ongoing FBI investigations into the Trump administration, concerned Americans have turned to Google with searches about what would happen in the event of a presidential impeachment. Fortunately our country’s founders took every measure to furnish us with a thorough backup plan that would maintain governmental continuity well beyond Vice President [].feedback

David Letterman

I have begun to lose confidence in the Trump administration.feedback

Sigmar Gabriel

Anyone who accelerates climate change by weakening environmental protection, who sells more weapons in conflict zones and who does not want to politically resolve religious conflicts is putting peace in Europe at risk. The Trump administration wants to terminate climate agreements, wants to enforce military action in crisis regions and won't allow people from certain religious circles to enter the US. The West has become smaller, at least it has become weaker. The shortsighted policies of the American government stand against the interests of the European Union.feedback

Kelly Love

The Trump administration has an unwavering commitment to the civil rights of all Americans.feedback

Koji Fukaya - FPG Securities

Already a rate hike is discounted in the market, so there needs to be some additional factors in order for the dollar to resume testing the upside. But there are uncertainties over the Trump administration, and if fiscal policy will expand or not, or if the economy will accelerate.feedback

Gerry Connolly

Congress has made clear it would not support cutting mail delivery from six to five days, and for good reason. Eliminating a critical competitive advantage, Saturday mail delivery, would kick off a vicious cycle of increasing volume reductions, service standard degradation, and customer alienation. We've finally got a postmaster general that understands that six-day delivery is an asset. It would be foolish for the Trump administration to re-litigate this debate.feedback

Edward J. Markey

The more the public understands about what the Trump administration is trying to do to net neutrality, they'll understand that it's the same thing they're trying to do to the Affordable Care Act, to the Clean Air Act, to gun safety laws – and net neutrality is just another part of the very same story.feedback

Adebayo Ogunlesi - Credit Suisse Group

If there's anything encouraging about the direction of the Trump administration, it's that they want to streamline the regulatory approval process in the U.S., which I think is necessary, and I don't think they need to be less concerned about the environment.feedback

Curt Woodworth - Credit Suisse Group
Serena Rocha Calejon - Credit Suisse Group

Our conversations with trade lawyers have noted that the Trump administration has had a 'chilling effect' with respect to growing trade with the United States, especially in Asia.feedback

Tom Price

The CBO was wrong when they analyzed Obamacare's effect on cost and coverage, and they are wrong again. In reality, Americans are paying more for fewer healthcare choices because of Obamacare – and that's why the Trump administration is committed to reforming healthcare.feedback

Al Gore

We now know after four months of the Trump administration that no one person can stop the climate movement, not even the president.feedback

John Oliver

It's like the centipede that keeps dropping shoes. But it's real, and people wear shoes, so the Trump administration is really more The Human Centipede in terms of the amount of shit passing through it and how nauseating watching it really is.feedback

AshLee Strong

We continue to work with the Trump administration on a solution.feedback

Robert Laszewski

The Trump administration (seems) to be delighting in sabotaging this, and making it worse so that it serves (its) political ends.feedback

Dore Gold

For a long time, Israel's priority has been the Iranian threat. The shift that the Trump administration has made in wanting to block Iranian hegemonialism is significant for Israel.feedback

Faisal J. Abbas

It's quite a historic visit in the sense that it's kind of a one-stop shop for the Trump administration to set his agenda on the challenges facing the region. It is time to reset relation, realigning the alliances, trying to fix as much as we can.feedback

Richard Mallinson - Energy Aspects

We already have a Trump administration taking a notably different tone than the Obama administration. It hasn't yet torn up the Iran deal…but still we've got the sanctions under that deal being put under review by the State Department, we've got new sanctions being imposed for missile tests, we've got much tougher language coming out of the U.S.feedback

Britain deserves better than simply outsourcing our country's security and prosperity to the whims of the Trump White House. So no more hand holding with Donald Trump.

The Trump Administration has not yet changed our strategy, because there's been a lot of rhetoric but not a lot of action.

Ive been a Republican political consultant for almost 30 years, and Ive dispensed a lot of private advice.

Like dozens of other prominent GOP national security leaders, you may have publicly opposed Donald Trump's presidential campaign in harsh terms.

Now that he will be moving into the White House, however, you must serve in a Trump administration if given the opportunity.feedback

The Trump administration has said that they want to take away and roll back policies that have already been implemented, and the question is whether that will really happen.feedback

Jeanne Shaheen

Today, the Trump administration confirmed our worst fears regarding this new, drastically expanded global gag executive order. This administration's pathetic rebranding of this policy is a thinly-veiled attempt to hide the tremendous harm it has around the world. President Trump's dangerous obsession with rolling back reproductive rights has severe consequences for millions of vulnerable women and children, and grossly undermines our nation's humanitarian leadership around the globe.feedback

Ron Insana - CNBC

If the Trump administration ultimately fails to survive the political turmoil that intensified, without warning this week, one could rightly assume that the stock market could be vulnerable to an extended pullback. It could easily suffer a 10 percent to 20 percent correction as a consequence of a constitutional crisis which may well be in the making.feedback

Rex W. Tillerson

In the United States, we are currently reviewing several important policies, including how the Trump administration will approach the issue of climate change.

We're going to work to make the right decision for the United States.feedback

Sergey Lavrov

Now our dialogue is free of the ideology that was characteristic of the Obama administration. The Trump administration, the president himself and the secretary of state, I was persuaded of this once again today, are people of action. I believe it is even humiliating for the American people to hear that the Russian Federation is controlling the situation in America.

We need our governments to act, but we're not powerless when they don't.

Brownley is a very junior member in the minority party.

Nan Aron

The Trump administration has made clear its intention to benefit from Republican obstructionism and to pack the federal courts with ultraconservatives given a stamp of approval by the Federalist Society. We'll be scrutinizing the records of these nominees very carefully.

If they are not going to change it and it's going to continue to be a branded initiative as a priority of the U.S. government, we'd be delighted. And if they don't continue it, we're disappointed. These girls need every bit of help that we can get them. … They have huge obstacles to overcome. She's already been thinking what next could she do as a private citizen.feedback

It is evident that the California citrus industry is the pawn in a greater trade deal between the Trump administration and Argentina. When the fruit comes into the U.S., it could bring things we don't want with it. There are a number of pest and diseases and phytosanitary issues in Argentina that we have not had to deal with here in the U.S. and that's why the fruit has been kept out. California is not in the president's best graces. We're an easy industry to give up.feedback

Leon Fresco

One thing this administration has done that the Democrats' message has to recalibrate for is that it's not credible to the American people to say enforcement plays no role in [reducing] the numbers of immigrants coming illegally.

The White House has made a second major concession to Democrats in the final stages of negotiations on a critical spending bill, paving the way for a deal to avert government shutdown. The White House said Wednesday that it would drop its opposition to a subsidy for low-income people in the Affordable Care Act, known as Cost Sharing Reductions, a funding stream that the Trump administration had threatened to stop.

It was a sobering briefing, and an important opportunity for the entire Senate to hear the emerging plans of the Trump administration to confront what is a very real threat to our security.

Kate Kelly

With this review, the Trump administration is walking into a legal, political and moral minefield. No president has ever attempted to revoke a national monument – and for good reason: such an attack on our nation's public lands and heritage is deeply unpopular and illegal. Any honest, transparent review of national monuments will reveal them for what they are: testaments to our nation's heritage and economic engines for local communities. But make no mistake – this review should worry all Americans who want to pass on our national parks and public lands to the next generation.feedback

Brian Skorney - Robert W. Baird & Co.

A march on Washington under the idea of a march around science could be considered a partisan protest of the Trump administration.

It's a big mistake for the Trump administration to pull out of this mission right at a time when the government of Sudan is on the hook for providing actionable intelligence to find Joseph Kony, finally.

If the Trump administration allows Exxon to move forward with extreme offshore oil drilling in Russia despite sanctions, the United States Congress must resist. Removing barriers to Exxon drilling in the Russian Black Sea with a state-controlled company like Rosneft would not only jeopardize global progress on climate change and provide momentum for a similar waiver in the Russian Arctic, it would also send a message to Russia that it can intervene in any country, including the United States, with no consequences.feedback

Our nuclear plants produce jobs and tax revenues which the markets ignore.

The White House Office will disclose Secret Service logs as outlined under the Freedom of Information Act, a position the Obama White House successfully defended in federal court. By instituting historic restrictions on lobbying to close the revolving door, expanding and elevating ethics within the White House Counsel's office, and opening the White House press briefing room to media outlets that otherwise cannot gain access, the Trump administration has broken new ground in ensuring our government is both ethical and accessible to the American people.feedback
