going to be very severe economically,” Trump said. “We’re going to tariff a lot of their products coming in.”

  Most leaders go out of their way to avoid antagonizing their counterparts and wading into their delicate domestic politics.

  Not Trump.

  The exchange also revealed another one of Trump’s political tools: his fervent effort to inject an

appeal to his base — in this case on a signature issue, trade — into almost every political situa

tion.Trump also launched a mini-campaign rally, seizing on the Senate vote undoing his emergency declaration, to s

pell out his hardline policies on immigration and the wall — always with an eye on his most loyal voters.

  In an interview published by Breitbart News this week, Trump revealed another aspect of his character — a sense

that he is being persecuted unfairly — that helps him identify with voters who feel neglected by political elites.

  Complaining about Democratic investigations, the

President made a jarring comment that hinted at the possibility of political violence.

  When I woke up Friday morning to the news of the massacre at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, I felt sick. But sad

ly, not entirely surprised. I had been dreading this kind of violence happening, although I would have never imag

ined this kind of scale — 49 Muslim men, women and children killed in cold blood with such clinical, methodical precision and filmed for social media.

  Islamophobia is on the rise and has been for some time. Muslims have been demonize

d, dehumanized and scapegoated on an industrial scale by society since 9/11.

  No other group has been punished for the sins of the father in such a systematic and accepted way. Politicians, commen

tators, influencers and the media on the right have waged a war against Muslims that has become normalized.

  The most powerful man on the planet, President Donald Trump, has sought to ban them fro

m entering the United States. British prime minister hopeful and former Foreign Secretary Bori

s Johnson made “jokes” insulting Muslim women, saying they looked like letter boxes. After those comments, Tell Mam

a, an organization that records Muslim hate incidents, reported that attacks on Muslim women went up.

  They often take the form of pulling off a woman’s headscarf, espe

cially when she’s taking her children to and from school. Imagine what that does to a young

frightened and confused Muslim child? We have respected high-profile commentators who say that Islam

ophobia doesn’t exist and imply that “they” have brought it on themselves because of terrorism.

  28-year-old man should now be on a watch list or face prejudice. It’s a nonsensical, prim

itive argument. Yet one that elites in powerful positions repeat, even though they should know better.

  The trope that all Muslims are somehow predisposed to violence or terrorism is dangerous an

d wrong. Most Muslims — particularly immigrants — keep their heads down, want a quiet, pea

ceful life and want to stay out of trouble. I know this because I am Muslim and know our community. We are not out to c

ause trouble. We don’t come to “invade”; we come to make a better life for ourselves.

  We run your convenience store, drive your cabs, feed you late-night food when you’ve had a drink or look after you when you’r

e ill. We serve our communities. Yet we have become the victims of harassment, hatred and now terrorism.

  Attacks — verbal and physical — on Muslims are par for the course. But society doesn’t seem to care. Our lives and p

ain don’t seem to matter as much because we are seen as second-class citizens or “bad people.”

  I wept Friday on “CNN Talk,” thinking about the sadness of it al

l. It has been a dark day. But if there is any light, it was the outpouring of grief from people of all

backgrounds around the world who sent in messages of solidarity and kindness. If we can take one lesson from the

horror of Christchurch, we have to stop this hate and see Muslims as human beings, just like anyone else.

  of national political angst and with a heavy duty policy debate already under way. But Trump is an expert at trivializing and belittling opponents, to de

tract from the gravity of their arguments and to feed the conservative media machine.

  His diagnosis of Jeb Bush’s “low energy” four years ago established a narrative about the former Florida gove

  Trump vs. Brexit — and Obama

  At one point in the meeting Tump, said he wasn’t going to “comment on Bre

xit,” but characteristically unable to constrain himself, could barely leave the topic alone.

  At the start of his meeting, Trump welcomed Varadkar, and poin

ting out that his visitor was in a difficult position over Britain’s tortured attempts to comp

lete its withdrawal from the European Union, which could harm Ireland’s peace and prosperity.

  when he flew into his Turnberry golf course in 2016. In fact, Trump arrived on the west coast of Scotland hours after the result of the referendum was announced.

  Whether the President knows he’s lying, or has convinced himself of the truth of his alternative reality, is unclear. But

his continued use of a discredited fact is a core element of his political technique.

  Trump also put Varadkar on the spot — asking him to comment on Brexit, threatening to expose their differences on the issue.

  Then Trump interrupted Varadkar, who watched with a bemus

ed look as the President savaged the EU alongside one of its national leaders.

  ”The European Union treats us very, very unfairly,” Trump s

aid, in a screed that included another characteristic political device — a flagrant threat.

  In a blistering attack on Boeing, the Air Force’s top acquisition official said the company has a “severe situation” with flawed inspectio

ns of its new KC-46 air refueling tanker aircraft, after trash and industrial tools were found in some planes after they were delivered to the Air Force.

  Dr. Will Roper, assistant secretary of the Air Force for acquisition, technology and logisti

cs, made clear his concerns after visiting Boeing’s Everett Washington plant where the plane is assembled.

  ”I left concerned, and I also left thinking Boeing understands they have a sever

e situation that’s going to take top level engagement from their company,” Roper said.

  After discovering the problem, the Air Force stopped accepting the new tankers from Boeing on February 20.R

oper visited the plant on Monday and, after getting a company promise for a new inspection plan, deliveries are res

uming as upgraded inspections are completed. Six aircraft that had already been received were re-inspected by the Air Force.

  ”We are doing more stringent inspections so we feel confident before we accept any plane from Boeing,” Air Force spokeswoman Ann Stefanek told CNN.

  While the discovery of trash and tools in the planes is not a result o

f design flaw, or a specific safety concern, Air Force officials privately told CNN they were

aware that the timing of the problem is exceptionally sensitive for Boeing after the grounding of its 737 Max jet.

Dining, traveling and pursuing activities individually have also become increasingly popular with singles in China.

Tang Chuan, a researcher with Sinolink Securities, said that without family burdens, singles

seem to be less inclined to save money, and their willingness to spend offers great potential for boosting the economy.

Sinolink Securities conducted research on singles born from 1985 to 1995 and found that about 40 percent of those in first- an

d second-tier cities live from paycheck to paycheck, while in lower-tier cities, the proportion is as high as 76 percent.

y has vowed to increase its forest coverage to 26 percent by 2035.

To fulfill the target, Zhang said China should maintain the pace of afforestation – about 6.7 mil

lion hectares of trees newly planted each year – while implementing strict protection of forestry resources.

However, he said that the low survival rate of trees remains a challenge for afforestat

ion, and the administration is determined to tackle this problem in the coming years.

“To maintain a high survival rate, most of the effort should go toward keeping plants in a healthy state rather than simp

ly planting trees,” he said. “Also, species should be planted with the right techniques in inhospitable places.”
