Trump removal proceedings applied for
After the Trumps election to the US President, the image of the United States has suffered abroad. This is clear from a survey. As a result, only 22 per cent of people surveyed in 37 countries have confidence in Trumps foreign policy. Trump is also confronted with some problems in America itself. Read the latest developments in US policy here at the FOCUS Online News Ticker.
The most important news in brief:
The US government around President Donald Trumpregularly makes headlines.Finally, the 71-year-old has made a step-down in the legal dispute about his entry ban. The Supreme Court in Washington reintroduced the temporary ban on citizens of several Muslim states as well as all refugees.

USA wants to renegotiate free trade agreements with South Korea
11.43 am:The US wants to re-negotiate its existing free trade agreement with South Korea for five years. Since the agreement entered into force in March 2012, the trade deficit with South Korea had doubled, said US Trade Commissioner Robert Lighthizer on Wednesday. US President Donald Trump had therefore asked him to arrange a meeting of representatives from both countries. It will be held in Washington in August.
Trump has also issued the slogan “America First” in trade policy. Multilateral agreements with many members consider his government to be critical and instead prefer bilateral trade agreements with individual countries.
The transpacific free trade agreement TPP has already announced that Trump is already negotiating the North American free trade agreement Nafta from the middle of August. Trump threatened that if he did not come to the United States for improvements, he would give up Nafta.
Lighthizer said Wednesday that US exports to South Korea have been declining since the existence of the free trade agreement Korus. The US trade deficit has since then risen from 13.2 billion dollars to 27.6 billion dollars. “This is not what the predecessor government promised to the American people when it demanded ratification,” said Lighthizer. “We can and will do better.”
US Deputy is trying to rescind Trump
07.19 clock:In the USA, a Congress delegate for the first time applied for an official resignation procedure against President Donald Trump. The Democratic deputy, Brad Sherman from the state of California, explained his impetus for a so-called impeachment on Wednesday, among other things, with the latest developments in the Russia affair.
“The latest revelations from Donald Trump junior suggest that Trumps election campaign was eager to receive aid from Russia,” Sherman said. It had finally come to light that Trumps’ eldest son had met a Russian lawyer during the election campaign – in the hope that this material would be handed over to the presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, by the Russian General Prosecutor .
He also believed that the events surrounding the dismissal of former FBI chief James Comey were “a hindrance to justice,” Sherman said. Comey had been fired in early May by Trump. As one of several reasons for the dismissal, the President named the FBI investigation into the Russia affair.
However, Sherman’s request for success is low. So far, only another member of parliament, the Democrat Al Green, has joined his initiative. The so-called impeachment is a complex process for which the US Constitution places high hurdles. In the first step, a majority of the deputies in the House of Representatives would have to agree to the initiation of the resignation procedure. For this, several dozen parliamentarians of the Republicans would have to ally themselves with the oppositional democrats. There are no signs of this.
The White House rejected Sherman’s advance as “completely ridiculous”. The motion from the California delegation was a “political game of the worst kind”. Said Presidential Singer Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

During the election campaign in the hope that this material would be handed over to the presidential candidate. Hillary Clinton, by the Russian General Prosecutor.
