US is going to roll out a trade war against China this week or next. Targeting over a $100 billion in imports as well as IP concerns, allowing Chinese companies to operate in the US, and preventing Chinese students and workers from coming to the US. Some of this is still in the rumor/leak stage though.
That said, the US will end up getting buttfucked by the WTO or even better, leave the WTO

Pennsylvania Election Too Close to Call as Democrat Claims Win

Current numbers are
Conor Lamb 113,813
Rick Saccone 113,186
They're currently waiting on provisional ballots and any military or overseas ballots.

However, this is a big coup for the Democrats. Pennsylvania's 12th district was solid red district which Trump won by 20 percentage points. Conor Lamb destroyed that by winning 172 precincts won by Trump in 16. The Trump gang's visit didn't help and the GOP ended up wasting 10 million dollars.

The big takeaways from this election are that the Tax Cut isn't working, Trump isn't working, and the GOP are vulnerable. If a "safe" race like this can get tight, everything is in play. You can expect more retirements from the House Republicans.
