President Donald Trump's team played down talk of a trade war Wednesday as it fought to limit a financial market sell-off, promising a quick decision on contentious tariffs that prompted a popular economic advisor to the president to quit. "I think we're going to go through a circular trend of a much more restrained free market", he said then. "I believe they will honor that commitment!" he wrote. Jeff Flake, (R-Ariz.), who vowed to file a bill to nullify Trump's proclamation.
"He's trying to act like a Republican", said Mr Trump, but he contended Mr. Lamb "won't give me a single vote".
The new slogan will be "Keep America great!" with an exclamation point, Mr. Trump said at the rally. Still, the president's decisions, as well as his proclivity for off-the-cuff announcements, frequently leave aides and allies guessing. His departure date is to be determined but will be a few weeks from now, a White House official said. Trump asked Chung about a recent meeting with the North Korean dictator.

Determined to keep what he viewed as a crucial campaign promise, Trump forged forward with a plan to order new tariffs this week.
A senior administration official said those exemptions, however, could come at a price to other countries.

Navarro, Cohn's rival, is a leading candidate to take over from him as trade adviser, a prospect... But Trump's protectionist policies and unpredictable approach to policymaking have made a once prestigious gig unpalatable for many. "I want to see the photo of President Trump crying with, I don't know, whoever's left". More than one in three top White House officials resigned by the end of Mr. Trump's first year.
The president has previously shown his preference for working alone with mixed results.
Cohn was a surprising addition to the Trump administration.
He also had some nice things to say about state Rep. Rick Saccone, a Republican who is in a tight special-election race in Pennsylvania's 18th Congressional District.
"I have a feeling you'll be back".
