President Donald Trump has declared a pivot to the United States as the country’s economic recovery is getting under way.
But that shift is being undermined by the White House’s attempts to use the crisis to make political points about its failures and missteps.
Here’s a look at what’s happening.
MORE In the White Palace, Trump is expected to use his annual State of the Union address to declare the nation’s economic health, calling it “a strong economy that’s coming together.”
The president is expected Tuesday to present a blueprint for the first part of his $1.6 trillion stimulus package, and is expected for the second part to declare that it is “working.”
Trump is also expected to talk about the “great economic turnaround” that has helped the U.S. recover from the Great Recession and to pledge that “our economy is booming.”
Trump is expected on Wednesday to announce the end of the federal “global gag rule” limiting funding for international aid groups and aid to developing countries.
The new directive, which took effect in October, allowed money from U.N. programs to be used for the development of projects that benefit U.K. and European companies.
The president has said he will repeal the gag rule, but he has not yet specified how he will do so.
The U.A.E. has also begun to see some success in its efforts to combat climate change, with the U,S.
and other nations signing the Paris climate agreement in December.
But the Trump administration has repeatedly insisted that the agreement is not binding, and it has been criticized for using the agreement as a cover for its own policies.
The White House also has pushed for the Keystone XL pipeline to be built, despite the fact that President Barack Obama rejected the project during his last State of a Union address in January.
Trump’s administration is also seeking to impose tariffs on China for dumping carbon emissions.
But Trump has signaled he wants to work with China on a free trade agreement.
The U.J.A.’s foreign policy adviser said on CNN last week that China “is not our friend” and has not helped in any way in fighting climate change.
And there are other issues that are of concern to the president.
He has repeatedly questioned the motives of the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing, who were not from any particular ethnic group.
The Trump administration also wants to cut back the U and other programs to help the U-Maine men’s basketball team, which was eliminated in March for failing to comply with the NCAA’s rules regarding gender equity.
U.S.-China relations are also on the decline, with U. S. trade and investment being at record lows.
The president is also reportedly considering withdrawing from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a 12-nation trade pact that he said was not needed after years of U.W. and U. N. pressure.
The Trump White House is also considering withdrawing U.T.A., a federal agency that provides aid to the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, Tennessee, after its director resigned in September over a controversial social media post criticizing the president and his wife.
Trump has also suggested that he would consider ending the UU, a federal program that supports community colleges in poor communities.
The program provides free college education to students from low-income families, and the administration has called the program a waste of taxpayer dollars.
A officials are worried about the president’s rhetoric about building a wall between the U of C. and Mexico.
The administration is already taking steps to undo some of the damage done by the administration’s previous response to the crisis, including announcing that it will allow refugees into the U at a time when the country is struggling to deal with the influx of refugees.
