3:04 am
preeminent telecommunications company in china but she's also the daughter of that company's founder so she's widely respected among chinese business elites and their condemnation of her arrests has been swift and scathing they're accusing the u.s. and canada of kidnapping and all of this is happening under the context of the renewed trade negotiations between the u.s. and canada president she is likely to be pressured now to resist more accommodations to the u.s. and none of this bodes well for an end to this escalating trade war that is just wreaking havoc on the economies of both nations the shell right heidi castro live in washington d.c. thank you heidi iran's president says donald trump's decision to reimpose sanctions against his country is economic terrorism and financial sanctions came into force a month ago after trump pulled out of the two thousand and fifteen nuclear deal in may speaking at
