Turkey's Erdogan and Lindsey Graham reportedly had a spat over Syria's Kurds in the Oval Office
President Trump and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan had a cordial meeting on Wednesday, with Trump going out of his way to say he's a "big fan" of Erdogan and the two are "very good friends." But there was no evident progress on the big issues dividing the NATO allies: Turkey's assault on America's Kurdish allies in Syria and its purchase of Russian S-400 missile defense systems, and America's refusal to extradite a Muslim cleric Erdogan accuses of fomenting revolt.Trump invited five Republican senators critical of Turkey to his Oval Office meeting with Erdogan, and things "took a dark turn when Erdogan pulled out his iPad and made the group watch a propaganda video that depicted Kurds as terrorists," Axios reports, citing three people familiar with the meeting. "Erdogan apparently thought he could sway these senators by forcing them to watch a clunky propaganda film. The senators in the meeting took turns pushing back on Erdogan, while Trump sat back and watched, intervening occasionally to play traffic cop."All of the GOP senators were upset about the S-400, but Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) "got into a heated back-and-forth" with Erdogan over the Syrian Kurds, Axios reports. After Erdogan's film finished, Graham asked him: "Well, do you want me to go get the Kurds to make one about what you've done?" Graham told Axios late Wednesday that he had informed Erdogan "that 10,000 SDF fighters, mostly Kurds, suffered, died, or injured in the fight against ISIS, and America will not forget that and will not abandon them."Graham also made a wry comment when Trump told Erdogan to pick a "friendly reporter" at

Trade Talks Hit Bump as China Resists U.S. Demands on Agricultural Purchases
(Bloomberg) -- Terms of Trade is a daily newsletter that untangles a world embroiled in trade wars. Sign up here. A U.S. demand that China detail how it plans to reach as much as $50 billion in agricultural imports annually has become a sticking point in negotiations on a phase one trade deal, according to people familiar with the matter.Chinese negotiators are resisting a proposal from American officials that it provide monthly, quarterly and annual targets for purchases, said the people, who asked not to be named discussing the private talks. China also insists that the two sides must agree to rollback tariffs in phases if a deal is reached, the people said. U.S. President Donald Trump said earlier he had not agreed to ease any levies.There have been small signs that China and the U.S. are easing restrictions on imports of each other's goods. On Thursday, China lifted a ban on American poultry that began in 2015, saying it would allow imports from qualified suppliers. The move comes after the U.S. Department of Agriculture made a similar decision to allow Chinese poultry into the U.S.However, optimism that the U.S. and China are close to a limited trade deal has faded in recent days due to uncertainty over whether Washington would agree to rollback tariffs and also how any agreement would be enforced. Trump has said that the U.S. will substantially increase tariffs on China if the first step of a broader agreement isn't reached.China has also taken actions that could signal imp

George Conway Blasts GOP's ‘Incoherent' Hearing Performance in MSNBC Debut
George Conway—conservative lawyer, Trump critic, and husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway—got the first word on MSNBC after Wednesday's impeachment hearing finally wrapped up just after 3:30 p.m. ET. And he did not paint a pretty picture for Republicans. "Yes, that George Conway," Brian Williams said, introducing the new pundit. "I don't think the Republicans made much headway there," Conway said. "You saw some non-partisan professionals basically just tell us the facts. And the facts are quite damning. And the defenses that were put up by the Republicans were fundamentally illogical and incoherent."Conway summed up one of those defense of the president as "Hey, they actually got the money, the Ukrainians got the money, and Zelensky didn't make a statement" regarding Hunter Biden. "But the fact of the matter is, it was the ask that was illegal.""The second point they tried to make was that these witnesses didn't have firsthand communications with the president of the United States," he continued. "Well, the reason why we don't have testimony of firsthand communications with the president of the United States is because the White House has been blocking that! And other than that, there were just a lot of irrelevancies." White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham offered up the latter defense on Twitter during the hearings, leaving out the fact that the Trump administration has specifically prevents those closest to Trump—like John Bolton, Mick Mulvaney, and Mike Pompeo
