  1. 538 identified the critical question for Debra and our other anti- globalists.

    The other big question is who will control access to the President. When Trump described his conversation with Xi about North Korea, he said, “After listening for ten minutes, I realized it isn’t so easy.” This could be Trump talking about healthcare, trade policy, tax reform or many other issues. He is learning about our government and public policy on the fly. I actually think he is doing a good job of getting advice from a number of sources. However, as it has been said, the last person to talk to him has a big advantage.


  2. Good news.


    “President Trump signed a bill into law on Thursday that allows states block federal grants for family planning centers that provide abortions, like Planned Parenthood.

    The measure nixes a rule from President Obama’s days that blocked states from defunding Planned Parenthood and other healthcare centers for political reasons, and could force clinics to close across the country.

    The Obama-era rule barred states from blocking federal funding for family-planning services including birth control, fertility, pregnancy care and cancer screenings from health centers that also perform abortions.

    The bill passed by the barest of margins in the Senate, with Vice President Mike Pence casting the tie-breaking vote in late March.”
