What s really going on with China s economy? It s a $13 trillion question with massive implications for the continued rule of the Chinese Communist Party and President Xi Jinping, as well as the rest of the world, for much of which China is the No. 1 trading partner.Officially, things are right on track. The latest GDP numbers for the fourth quarter and the full year of 2018, released this week, show exactly the managed, modest slowdown in economic growth that Beijing promised to deliver: 6.6 percent annual growth in the world s second largest economy. Even as headlines trumpeted a 28 year low in China s growth rate, that was just what party leadership had pledged, knowing that the double digit growth rates posted earlier this century were never coming back.

President Trump has personally met with Democratic leaders over the last month, and has been urging lawmakers from both sides of the aisle to rise above partisan politics in order to support national security. House Speaker Nancy PelosiNancy Patricia D #039;Alesandro PelosiSenate Democrats reject Trump's 'pro rated' wall funding pitch Overnight Defense: Officials expect to pull out of arms treaty with Russia Senate rejects two spending measures on Day 34 of shutdown CBO puts cost of US nuke arsenal at 4B over next decade On The Money: Shutdown Day 34 Senate rejects two measures to end shutdown Trump says he will take wall 'down payment' Pelosi rejects Trump proposal GOP senators blast Pence on strategy Ross sparks controversy with comments on furloughed workers MORE, however, flatly rejected any border security solution that includes funding to build a border wall, which is the one element that President Trump has made clear must be part of any deal.Even after Democrats refused to participate in a White House meeting to renew the negotiations, President Trump continued his outreach by inviting members of the bipartisan House Problem Solvers Caucus to meet with him the next day.

WHEN DONALD TRUMP shut down the government, just before Christmas, his opponents privately shuddered. Illegal immigration, the issue he had chosen to stand on, was his most powerful weapon. And, though bloodied in the mid terms, he retained some of the imposing aura that his stunning election, loyal base and two years without serious political opposition conferred.

Mr Trump s opponents think they have got him at last. A Democratic congressman told Lexington it was unimaginable that Mr Trump will be re elected next year.A more dispassionate reading of the shutdown s political fallout, as Senate negotiations point to a possible end, suggests that Mr Trump may suffer no worse than a bruising stalemate. That is not to underrate how badly he has handled the episode. Indeed, it has been a case study in presidential incompetence.
