Common sense needed

Texans, especially those of us who live and work on the border, support President Donald Trump’s efforts to enhance border security. But here along the Texas border, where the Rio Grande separates Mexico and Texas, a wall is unnecessary. Even worse, the recent threat to seal the border would have had disastrous economic

End the trade war

Recently, Chinese president Xi Jinping met with senior Trump administration officials in Beijing, where they’ll attempt to defuse trade tensions between the world’s two largest economies. If they fail, the United States will raise tariffs on $200 billion of Chinese goods. The trade war has taken a toll on many sectors of the U.S. economy. That’s particularly true for the energy industry. In September, the Chinese put a 10 percent tariff on U.S. liquefied natural gas. As a result, LNG shipments to China have plummeted. While 25 U.S. LNG vessels reached China during the last six months of 2017, only six did during the same period last year.

Trade uncertainty remains

Earlier this month, President Trump appeared to back away from his threat to close the U.S.-Mexico border. The change of tone was a relief, especially for the North American business and border communities that would be paralyzed from the halted cross-border trade and movement. Trump noted that his administration would give Mexico a “one-year warning” to address drugs crossing into the United States, and would first apply tariffs before stopping all transit. The demand is an impossible task for Mexico’s new president, but it is not the only big issue brewing across the region.
