The Day Ahead

President Donald J. Trump will present the Medal of Honor to the late First Lt. Garlin M. Conner of Kentucky. Watch live at 3:30 p.m. ET.

Vice President Mike Pence is in Brazil, where today he will deliver a joint statement with Brazilian President Michel Temer.

Never underestimate America's farmers

"In 2011, a group of Chinese nationals dug up genetically engineered seeds from an Iowa corn field and planned to steal and send them back to China, so they could be reverse engineered," Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue begins a USA Today op-ed this week. "Those seeds, the result of years of research and millions of dollars of American investment, now stand as one of countless pieces of evidence in the case against China."

China accounts for 87 percent of counterfeit goods seized coming into the United States, and its intellectual property theft costs American innovators billions of dollars per year. A U.S. Trade Representative investigation identified several aggressive technology policies from China that put an incredible 44 million American jobs at risk.

President Trump has taken long overdue action to address China's unfair trade practices. Regrettably, China chose to retaliate, raising tariffs on $50 billion of U.S. exports. "China apparently has no intention of changing its unfair practices," President Trump said in a June 18 statement. "China might underestimate the strength and resolve of American farmers, but the president does not," Secretary Perdue writes.

President Trump will protect American farmers from China's trade retaliation.

The road ahead in the Middle East

His Majesty King Abdullah II bin Al-Hussein of Jordan visited the White House yesterday, meeting with President Trump and thanking him for America's support in the Middle East. "If the rest of the world just took a little bit of your humility and your grace to help us, we'd be in a lot better position," King Abdullah II said.

"You have done an incredible job on the refugees and the camps and taking care of people," President Trump told the King. "The job you do on a humanitarian basis is fantastic."

The Middle East has seen great progress since the United States withdrew from the flawed Iran nuclear deal, President Trump said. Yesterday's meeting came about a week after Senior Advisor Jared Kushner and Special Representative for International Negotiations Jason Greenblatt met with King Abdullah II in Jordan, part of a series of meetings the U.S. officials held across the Middle East last week. Their conversations focused largely on facilitating peace between the Israelis and Palestinians.

Watch President Trump host King Abdullah II in the Oval Office.
