I decided rather than terminating NAFTA, which would be a pretty big, you know, shock to the system, we will renegotiate,” Trump said. But Trump signaled he was still open to the idea of killing the agreement, if he couldnt get a good deal from Mexico and Canada. “If Im unable to make a fair deal for the United States, meaning a fair deal for our workers and our companies, I will terminate NAFTA,” he said. “But were going to give renegotiation a good, strong shot. Trump made his remarks to White House reporters during a visit from Argentinian president Mauricio Macri.

Only the best of the breeds... During that time, the WeedMD team conducted phenotyping to make sure it was cultivating only the best of the breeds it chose to grow based on an extensive genetics library. The team is confident it will be selling a product second to none into the market soon. Initially, sales will be primarily to established dispensaries serving the medical-use market. Longer term, however, WeedMD has a complementary strategy reflecting the medical leanings of its corporate name. “Our strategy for differentiation is founded on the relationships our CEO has in the retirement home and long-term care communities,” Merker explains. Bruce Scully, WeedMD co-founder and Chief Executive Officer, is the third generation of his family to operate long-term residences for seniors. It is an industry that has more parallels with the young medical cannabis market than you might think, given the similar levels of regulation and frequent inspections.

Yau, one of the two activists arrested on Wednesday, tells TIME that she believes the charges amount to political persecution. There is no ground to charge unlawful assembly as we had the right to protest, and it was our duty to attend the meetings in the [Legislative Council], she says. Nathan Law, another co-founder of Demosist who was elected as Hong Kong's youngest-ever legislator, says: The protest originated from Beijing's move to undermine Hong Kong's rule of law, adding that these are absolutely political prosecutions. Last month, nine organizers of the 2014 mass pro-democracy protests that paralyzed the city for 79 days, were booked on charges relating to causing a public nuisance during the demonstrations, Reuters reports. The spate of arrests come as Hong Kong's deeply unpopular Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying reaches the end of his tenure.

KEEPING cool in the heat of war is not easy. That might help explain why LafargeHolcim, a French-Swiss cement-maker, blundered so badly while running operations in Syria as fighting raged. On April 24th the firm said that its chief executive, Eric Olsen, will go, a casualty of a growing scandal over its activities in the country. The board of the world’s biggest cement producer stated only last month that Mr Olsen was not responsible for, nor aware of, wrongdoing by the firm in Syria. But public pressure has been increasing, notably after Jean-Luc Mélenchon, a left-wing candidate in France’s presidential election, attacked the firm and its “damned cement” in a television debate on April 4th. François Fillon, a pro-business rival, agreed the firm should be punished if allegations against it proved to be true. At issue is the activity of Lafarge before the firm’s merger with its Swiss rival, Holcim, in 2015.

Seth Meyers has seemed to realize that his best line of attack on Donald Trump is to use the presidents own words against him. On Late Night , Meyers argued that almost every action Trump has taken during his first 100 days in office, there is a Trump tweet that argues against that actionat least when it was taken by President Barack Obama. It is at this point like a law of physics: For every Trump action, theres an equal and opposite Trump clip, Meyers said on his Wednesday show. Meyers happened upon this idea thanks to one particular issue that Trump had completely backtracked, according to Meyersexecutive orders. Particularly, the number of executive orders that Trump has signed during his relatively short tenure in the White House. The White House released a statement bragging that Trump will have signed 30 executive orders during his first 100 days, which is ridiculous, Meyers said.

IF YOU need a pretext for a political climbdown in Latin America, they dont come much better than a plea from the pope. That was the excuse that Horacio Cartes, Paraguay’s president, used to drop his plan to run for a second consecutive term in 2018, which required changing the constitution. He was inspired to desist, he wrote to the archbishop of Asunción this month, by Pope Francis’s call for peace and dialogue. An attempt to ram the change through congress had provoked a riot in which the parliament building was set on fire. After ten days of hesitation, during which Mr Cartes’s Colorado Party failed to withdraw the amendment, on April 26th congress voted unanimously to reject it. But Paraguay’s decision will not quiet debate across Latin America about whether or not to allow presidential re-election. When in the 1970s and 1980s Latin America emerged from a period of dictatorship, its politicians were keen to place limits on executive power.
