Saudi Arabia, UAE Donate $100 Million To Women’s Fund Proposed By Ivanka Trump

Ivanka Trump helped inspire the fund, which will be led by the World Bank. Early reports had suggested she would take a more active fundraising role, but it was later reported that she would not be directly involved in raising funds or deciding how the money would be spent. “This is really a stunning achievement,” Kim said Sunday, according to USA Today. “I’ve never seen anything come together so quickly, and I really have to say that Ivanka’s leadership has been tremendous.” The donation is aimed at efforts for women in the Middle East, The Wall Street Journal reports, and the fund will support women who start businesses. Trump first announced her plans for the fund in April, raising questions about whether it would cause conflicts of interest given her role in the White House, and drawing comparisons to the Clinton Foundation’s controversial donors. A White House official said in April that Ivanka Trump would not solicit funds or have any authority over the World Bank project, contradicting earlier reports. During the presidential campaign, Donald Trump attacked Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton for her work with the nonprofit Clinton Foundation, which raises funds for projects including entrepreneurship programs and efforts to fight HIV and AIDS. A Trump campaign ad released in October criticized the “staggering amounts of cash pouring into the Clinton Foundation from criminals, dictators, countries that hate America.” The foundation received contributions from both the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia, two countries that have oppressive laws restricting women’s rights. Saudi Arabia bans women from driving and requires them to get permission from a male guardian to travel, marry and exit prison. Women “may be required to provide guardian consent in order to work or access healthcare,” according to the organization Human Rights Watch. “Women regularly face difficulty conducting a range of transactions without a male relative, from renting an apartment to filing legal claims.” At Sunday’s meeting with a group of Saudi women in top professional positions, Ivanka Trump said Saudi Arabia’s progress on women’s issues has been “very encouraging” but “there’s still a lot of work to be done.” She called herself a “female leader within the Trump administration” and spoke about issues like affordable child care, the pay gap and paid family leave, according to The Washington Post. Some Saudi activists criticized Trump and the women she met with for not doing enough to address the serious issues facing their gender. Activist Loujain al-Hathloul, who was jailed in 2014 for driving, told the Post that her concern with meetings like the one on Sunday “is that they show these women as powerful and making an impact, making a change. But in real life, they’ve been given these opportunities by the men. They did not fight for them.” In the U.S., Ivanka Trump has been criticized for paying lip service to issues facing women while failing to influence her father to take real action on policies like affordable child care. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Россия предложила выстроить новую транспортную конфигурацию Евразии

Прошедший в Пекине международный экономический форум «Один пояс, один путь» стал событием, вызвавшим резонанс во всем мире. Достаточно сказать, что в нем приняли участие главы государств и правительств 30 стран мира, а также руководители ряда международных организаций – Генеральный секретарь ООН Антониу Гутерриш, директор-распорядитель Международного валютного фонда Кристин Лагард, президент Всемирного банка Джим Ён Ким и других. Общее число участников форума превысило 1000 человек. Задавший тон разговора лидер КНР Си Цзиньпин подчеркнул главный принцип, из которого исходит Пекин: «Китай готов развивать дружбу и сотрудничество со всеми странами - участницами «Одного пояса, одного пути», готов делиться опытом развития без вмешательства во внутренние дела других стран. Мы не экспортируем социальный строй и модель развития и не навязываем их в ходе строительства «Одного пояса, одного пути». Вместо того чтобы повторять стереотипы геополитической игры, будем формировать новую форму взаимовыгодного сотрудничества».

Китай добавит $14,5 миллиарда в Фонд Шёлкового пути

Лидер КНР Си Цзиньпин заявил на открытии международного форума "Один пояс — один путь" в Пекине, что Китай дополнительно направит в Фонд Шёлкового пути 100 миллиардов юаней, что эквивалентно $14,5 миллиарда. Также Си Цзиньпин предложил китайским банкам выделить 380 миллиардов юаней, что эквивалентно $55 миллиардам, с целью поддержать сотрудничество в рамках инициативы "Один пояс — один путь". Для развития проекта Китай планирует работать с Азиатским банком инфраструктурных инвестиций, банком БРИКС и другими банками. Китайский лидер назвал пять основополагающих принципов сосуществования интеграции для успешной реализации проектов инициативы. Это мир, всеобщее сбалансированное процветание, открытость, инновации и гармония цивилизаций. В Пекине 14–15 мая проходит форум "Один пояс — один путь". Для участия в мероприятии прибыли представители высшего руководства 28 государств, включая президента России Владимира Путина, Генерального секретаря ООН Антонио Гутерриша, директора-распорядителя Международного валютного фонда Кристин Лагард и президента Всемирного банка Джима Ён Кима. Ожидается, что форум соберёт более 1200 человек. Ранее Лайф сообщал, что Владимир Путин на встрече с Си Цзиньпином заявил о необходимости новых механизмов сотрудничества в экономике.

Путин призвал мир отказаться от воинственной риторики

Президент России Владимир Путин прибыл в Китай с двухдневным рабочим визитом и выступил на церемонии открытия Международного форума «Один пояс, один путь», сообщает пресс-служба Кремля. Российский лидер отметил: «Дисбалансы в социально-экономическом развитии, кризис прежней модели глобализации ведут к негативным последствиям для отношений между государствами, для международной безопасности. Не будем забывать и о тех угрозах, которые несут региональные конфликты; зоны застарелого противоречия сохраняются в очень многих местах в Евразии». «Чтобы развязать эти узлы, следует, прежде всего, отказаться от воинственной риторики, взаимных обвинений и упреков, которые лишь усугубляют ситуацию. Да и в целом – в логике старых подходов нельзя решать ни одну из современных проблем. Нужны свежие, свободные от стереотипов идеи», – заявил Владимир Путин. При этом президент России выразил убежденность в том, что «Евразия способна выработать и предложить содержательную и позитивную повестку. Это касается обеспечения безопасности, развития отношений между государствами, организации экономики, социальной сферы, систем управления, поисков новых драйверов роста». Напомним, в работе форума «Один пояс, один путь» в Пекине участвуют более тысячи человек: главы ряда государств и правительств, руководители крупных международных организаций, в частности высшее руководство 28 стран, генсек ООН Антониу Гутерреш, директор-распорядитель МВФ Кристин Лагард, президент Всемирного банка Джим Ён Ким.

В прошлом году, ходе майского визита Путина в Грецию состоялись переговоры президента России с Ципрасом, Москва и Афины подписали декларацию об укреплении отношений. Как подчеркнул премьер-министр Греции на встрече с российским президентом, укрепление связей с Россией – это стратегический выбор Афин.

MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: Trump’s tax plan -- JUST WONDERING: What is the W.H. gov’t shutdown strategy? -- POLITICO names new CEO -- ANNIE KARNI on Ivanka in Berlin -- LUMBER WARS -- B'DAY: AshLee Strong

Listen to the Playbook Audio Briefing http://bit.ly/2orock8 ... Subscribe on iTunes http://apple.co/2eX6Eay ... Visit the online home of Playbook http://politi.co/2f51JnfGood Tuesday morning.HILL TO W.H.: 15% CORPORATE TAX RATE? GET REAL -- The White House yesterday sent out the message that they planned to cut the corporate tax rate to 15 percent -- fulfilling a campaign-season promise. Is this an opening negotiating position or what Trump wants to achieve? We don’t know, because we haven’t seen him in a successful legislative negotiation yet.BUT PRIVATELY, CAPITOL HILL REPUBLICANS ARE SEETHING. Why? Because a 15 percent corporate rate is practically impossible to achieve without blowing a hole in the budget. The president might be willing to balloon the national deficit, but Hill Republicans -- which have made debts and deficits their central issue over the last decade -- are not. To make a cut like that permanent, Republicans would need Democratic votes in the Senate, because it would run afoul of reconciliation rules. Speaker Paul Ryan and House Republicans raise $1 trillion in new cash with the border-adjustment tax, and they can only get the corporate rate down to 20 percent. Trump is signaling he has no interest in the so-called BAT. -- WSJ’S RICHARD RUBIN: “Five Roadblocks in the Way of the White House’s Proposed Corporate Tax Cut”: “Deficits … Passthroughs … Reconciliation … Tradeoffs … Corporate Splits.” http://on.wsj.com/2p07O8y SPOTTED -- THE DINNER OF THE NIGHT -- Rep. Patrick McHenry (R-N.C.), the chief deputy whip and a critical player on practically any bill that comes to the House floor, dining with White House National Economic Adviser Gary Cohn at Le Diplomate on 14th Street. … MEETING TODAY -- Ways and Means Chairman Kevin Brady, Speaker Paul Ryan, Senate Finance Chairman Orrin Hatch, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Gary Cohn and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin.… TRUMP SOFTENS TONE ON BORDER WALL: The idea that the Trump administration could get funding for a border wall is fantastical, as Democrats can stop it cold in the Senate. Why did the White House take a firm position on it, only to abandon it last night? (See: Dawsey, Josh http://politi.co/2pdnhRd). When Congress passes the government funding bill in the next few days, the narrative will be that Trump was unable to secure money for the border wall, and in typical Washington fashion, has pushed off the fight to September. Sure, the administration could get a win here, if they let themselves. If they beef up border security or step up surveillance on the border they can sell that as a “down payment" on a stronger border, as Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio) has been putting it. RACHAEL BADE and JOHN BRESNAHAN: “Ryan on the hot seat to deliver for Trump”: “‘He has a really tough job, and I think he’s managing it well,’ an administration official added. ‘We all look back and see things we could have done better, but he’s got a very diverse conference that has a lot of different views.’” http://politi.co/2pgoWYv -- ABOUT THAT PROGRESS ON HEALTH CARE: Remember when House Republicans wanted to show progress on health care before heading home a few weeks ago? They went to the House Rules Committee and started the process of passing a bill implementing risk-sharing pools. We hear that effort will be dropped and that House Republicans could kill the rule as soon as today. TRUMP’S FIRST 100 DAYS -- The White House is launching a website to commemorate the milestone. The site has three categories of accomplishments: “Building American Prosperity,” “Keeping Americans Safe & Strengthening Security Abroad,” and “Making Government Accountable to the People.” The president has called the 100-day construct a “ridiculous standard.” http://bit.ly/2p08J9f-- AP: “Trump’s 100-days promises: Fewer than half carried out,” by Jill Colvin and Calvin Woodward. http://apne.ws/2oGPlv9 ABOUT THOSE 100 DAYS -- THE RESISTANCE: “Trump has enabled the Democratic Party to overlook its serious problems,” by Gabe Debenedetti: “By most traditional measures, the Democratic Party hit rock bottom at the outset of Donald Trump’s presidency. The Democratic National Committee was leaderless and in shambles. Congress and the White House were under Republican control, as were about two-thirds of the statehouses. Perhaps the most popular national figure associated with the party, Sen. Bernie Sanders, refused to even call himself a Democrat.“Yet Trump’s first 100 days in office appear to have resuscitated the party, if for no reason other than the rank-and-file loathe him so deeply and furiously. Grassroots activism and organizing is surging. Irate Democrats are flooding GOP town halls even in conservative states like Idaho and South Carolina. Small-dollar fundraising is also on fire — six of the 10 Senate Democrats up for re-election in states Trump won collected over $2 million in the first three months of the year. For some of them, that represented more than had ever been raised in their state this early in the election cycle. But while the president has generated a vibrant culture of resistance on the left, it’s obscuring the depth of the hole that the Democratic Party still finds itself in.” http://politi.co/2pvfXn9FOR YOUR RADAR -- “Seoul: North Korea holds drill to mark military anniversary,” by AP’s Eric Talmadge and Kim Tong-Hyung in Pyongyang, North Korea: “South Korea's military said Tuesday that North Korea held major live-fire drills in an area around its eastern coastal town of Wonsan as it marked the anniversary of the founding of its military. The exercise took place as a U.S. guided-missile submarine arrived in South Korea and envoys from the United States, Japan and South Korea met in Tokyo to discuss the growing threat posed by North Korea's nuclear weapons and missiles program. Though experts thought a nuclear test or ballistic missile launch might happen, the morning came and went without either.” http://apne.ws/2q9DqGO-- “As North Korea Speeds Its Nuclear Program, U.S. Fears Time Will Run Out,” by NYT’s David Sanger and William Broad: http://nyti.ms/2q1pUs5 ANNIE KARNI in BERLIN -- “Ivanka Trump faces skeptical audience in Berlin”: “‘What does a daughter with no political experience have to do in the White House?’ said Andrea Seibel, an opinion editor at Die Welt, the influential conservative-leaning Berlin daily, where editors huddling in the newsroom Monday afternoon planned to give front-page coverage to the visit. ‘We have family clan experiences in autocracies,’ Seibel said. ‘Ivanka Trump isn’t elected, she is a daughter. She didn’t say anything in the elections when he was saying nasty things about women and migrants. She is his voice, but somehow she has a nicer face.’“The coverage of Ivanka Trump in the German media in the days leading up to her speech was similar to that at home, where she has been criticized on late night programs like ‘Saturday Night Live’ for being ‘complicit’ in her father’s agenda.” http://politi.co/2q0RoOJ -- VIDEO of Ivanka arriving in Berlin. http://bit.ly/2pgqBgD -- IVANKA FT OP-ED with World Bank president JIM YONG KIM, “Investment in women unleashes global gains: Female economic empowerment brings dividends for families, businesses and nations”: “We know what works. We need to increase access to finance, redistribute care work, accelerate progress to financial inclusion, and offer programmes that train female entrepreneurs and help them to access higher value markets. We need to develop new legal and regulatory frameworks to boost women’s growth and productivity. The right skills training enhances women’s capacity to better manage their businesses. And mentorship opportunities and access to networks bring learning opportunities and connections to capital and markets.” http://on.ft.com/2q17nML LUMBER WARS -- “In New Trade Front, Trump Slaps Tariff on Canadian Lumber,” by NYT’s Peter Baker in D.C. and Ian Austen in Ottawa: “The Commerce Department determined that Canada had been improperly subsidizing the sale of softwood lumber products to the United States, and after failed negotiations, Washington decided to retaliate with tariffs of 3 percent to 24 percent. The penalties will be collected retroactively on imports dating back 90 days …“The United States and Canada have been at odds over softwood lumber in one form or another since the 19th century, with the current dispute tracing back to 1982. The United States imported $5.7 billion in softwood lumber last year alone, mainly for residential home building. At the conflict’s heart is a fundamental difference in forestry ownership. In the United States, forest lands are largely held by lumber companies. In Canada, they tend to be owned by the government, and American mills contend that Canadian provinces subsidize their industries by charging low royalty rates for cutting trees. A temporary truce under President George W. Bush, which effectively limited Canadian exports to the United States, expired in 2015.” http://nyti.ms/2pgi6lC -- TORONTO STAR: “The move was expected: the historic dispute over lumber pricing has led to once-a-decade trade skirmishes over the issue, resulting in American duties, then the inevitable court battles, and ultimately negotiated settlements. What wasn’t expected Monday was the enthusiasm with which the new American administration flung itself into the lumber hostilities, touting its incoming countervailing duties as an example of U.S. President Donald Trump’s tough, America-first trade posture.” http://bit.ly/2pdfNxx TRUMP INC. -- “Flynn’s Turkish lobbying linked to Russia,” by Isaac Arnsdorf: “The Turkish man who gave Michael Flynn a $600,000 lobbying deal just before President Donald Trump picked him to be national security adviser has business ties to Russia, including a 2009 aviation financing deal negotiated with Vladimir Putin, according to court records. The man, Ekim Alptekin, has in recent years helped to coordinate Turkish lobbying in Washington with Dmitri ‘David’ Zaikin, a Soviet-born former executive in Russian energy and mining companies who also has had dealings with Putin’s government, according to three people with direct knowledge of the activities.“This unusual arrangement, in which Alptekin and Zaikin have helped steer Turkish lobbying through various groups since at least 2015, raises questions about both the agenda of the two men and the source of the funds used to pay the lobbyists. Although Turkey is a NATO ally, its president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, has grown increasingly authoritarian and friendly with Putin. And the hiring of Flynn by Alptekin came at a time when Flynn was working for Trump’s campaign and Putin’s government was under investigation for interfering with the U.S. election.” http://politi.co/2oHnb38POLITICO NAMES A NEW CEO -- Robert Allbritton and John Harris email the POLITICO world staff: “POLITICO’s next CEO is Patrick Steel, who is leaving a successful 16-year career at the investment bank of FBR & Co. to join us on May 8. Patrick is right for POLITICO for these primary reasons ... [H]is experience and expertise for the past 16 years has been in helping recognize companies that are poised for dramatic growth both domestically and overseas, and helping their management teams organize to achieve their potential.” WSJ story on the hire http://on.wsj.com/2orts74 THE JUICE …-- FIRST IN PLAYBOOK: UBS INVESTOR WATCH is out with its quarterly report this time focused on the first 100 days of the Trump administration. The findings: 61 percent of investors are optimistic about the economic outlook, up from 42 percent last summer. Three-in-four business owners are optimistic about their business outlook for the next four months. And while health care continues to be the top concern for investors, 90 percent believe government should spend more time coming up with a better solution. The survey polled more than 2,200 people who have at least $1 million in investable assets from March 28 through April 3. More results http://bit.ly/2oFSzy9-- JONES DAY, the Trump campaign’s law firm, is running an online ad touting its “Insights on the New Administration,” listing issues it has expertise on like “energy & environment,” “financial regulation,” “government contracts,” and “health care / ACA”. One of the ads, which has a picture of the White House, was a prominent ad on NPR’s home page on Saturday. The ad links to a page (http://bit.ly/2q3yfbo) that has 14 publications analyzing the Trump administration’s policies. The law firm, whose former partner Don McGahn became White House counsel, was paid $3.3 million in legal fees by the campaign through the end of last month. At least three Jones Day lawyers joined McGahn in the White House. The firm, which does not lobby in Washington, did not respond to requests for comment on the ad campaign. See the ad http://bit.ly/2oVs773-- FROM MORNING MEDIA: “At The New York Times, Rebecca Ruiz is joining the Washington bureau as a Justice Department reporter on the team covering national security and law enforcement. She’s been doing sports investigations since 2015 and was a business reporter prior to that.”-- RANDOLPH ALLES is expected to be named the new Secret Service director. Ken Vogel and Cristiano Lima report: “Alles has served as the acting deputy commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border protection since Trump's inauguration. He previously served stints as the CBP’s acting executive assistant commissioner of enterprise services and leading the department’s Air and Marine Operations. Prior to serving in federal government, Alles served for 35 years in the Marine Corps, retiring in 2011 with the title of Major General.” http://politi.co/2oZTqgS-- SEN. TAMMY DUCKWORTH is scheduled to deliver her first speech on the Senate floor at 2:30 p.m. The Illinois Democrat will “call for a return to the shared values of equality, opportunity, and inclusiveness that have helped make our country the strongest in the world.” http://bit.ly/2pZIfmQTRUMP’S TUESDAY -- The president will be on Capitol Hill for a Holocaust remembrance ceremony. He’ll meet with Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin.SCHEDULE SHIFT -- “Trump dinner with Supreme Court justices postponed,” by Josh Gerstein: “President Donald Trump has postponed plans to host a dinner this week for the justices of the just-back-to-full-strength Supreme Court, White House officials said Monday. A week-ahead schedule distributed to reporters on Sunday said Trump would attend a dinner Thursday evening with the justices, ‘including his successfully confirmed nominee Justice Neil Gorsuch.’ However, a later version of the outlook dropped the Supreme Court event. A Trump aide said Monday that the dinner was put off due to scheduling issues during this busy week where officials are going all-out to mark the president’s accomplishments in his first 100 days in office.” http://politi.co/2q9Ju1J BEYOND THE BELTWAY -- “A reelection challenge (almost) as big as Texas,” by WaPo’s Karen Tumulty in Tornillo, Texas: “Midterm elections are known to be brutal on the party in power, and if there is an anti-Republican wave in 2018, look for it to touch shore right here. The vast, volatile 23rd Congressional District of Texas is bigger in area than 29 states. It stretches from San Antonio to El Paso and includes about one-third of the entire U.S.-Mexico border. Its overwhelmingly Latino electorate last year went for Democrat Hillary Clinton in the presidential race. But it also reelected a Republican to the U.S. House — one of fewer than two dozen in the country to split that way. Rep. Will Hurd narrowly won a second term in what turned out to be the most expensive House race in Texas history. Democrats have put Hurd’s seat in their top five targets in 2018. He will also be running to beat the fickle tendencies of a district that has ousted four different incumbents since 2006.” http://wapo.st/2pdajD3WEST COAST WATCH -- “Anticipating a shift to the right in the courts, the NRA begins its attack on gun controls in California,” by L.A. Times Pat McGreevy: “The state affiliate of the National Rifle Assn. on Monday filed the first in a series of planned court challenges opposing sweeping new gun control laws approved in California in the wake of the San Bernardino terror attacks. The flurry of legal action comes as Neil Gorsuch, President Trump’s choice for the Supreme Court, takes his seat, returning a conservative majority to the nation’s highest court. And as the Republican administration begins appointing additional judges to the federal court system, gun-rights advocates say they hope that some of the more restrictive laws imposed in recent years will be vulnerable to legal challenge.” http://lat.ms/2q9JFKNPLAYBOOK METRO SECTION -- “Tony Kornheiser’s D.C. bar finally has its new name,” by WaPo’s Dan Steinberg: “Kornheiser announced on his podcast last week that the former Chad’s (formerly Chadwick’s) has been renamed Chatter, effective immediately. The name is both a reference to the restaurant’s new podcasting studio -- which he said should be open by May 1 -- and to a famous quote about newspapers. ... Some of his partners -- who include Maury Povich, Gary Williams and Alan Bubes -- preferred Chatters, but Kornheiser prevailed upon them to use the singular.” http://wapo.st/2oGS7AMMEDIAWATCH -- “White House turns conservative media reception into on-the-record briefing,” by Hadas Gold: “Around 50 attendees from the likes of Breitbart, the Washington Free Beacon, Daily Caller, Christian Broadcast Network, Catholic-focused The Eternal Word Television Network, as well as conservative radio hosts like Laura Ingraham, Larry O’Connor and John Fredericks mingled with senior administration officials and the president over light snacks, fruit and candy in the White House’s Roosevelt room. Nearly the entire communications staff were in attendance in addition to Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, chief of staff Reince Priebus, chief strategist Stephen Bannon, senior adviser Jared Kushner, National Security Council spokesperson Michael Anton and Deputy National Security Adviser K.T. McFarland. After about 30 minutes, the president came in and, standing in the corner of the room, began to take questions from the assembled press, later turning the event on the record.” http://politi.co/2pvdBEL--Some reporters grumbled that they were unprepared when the evening turned into an impromptu presidential news conference. Reporters had been expecting a casual reception. The invitation had said the event was going to be “on background,” which the White House reiterated at the start of the event, according to an attendee. Because they thought the event was on background, some reporters at the reception weren’t jotting down exact quotes from Trump during his Q&A.--SPOTTED: Charlie Spiering, Matthew Boyle, Alex Marlow, Kaitlan Collins, Jim Stinson, Star Parker, Adam Kredo, Brent Schur, Vince Coglianese, Katie Pavlich, Trey Yingst-- “Bill O’Reilly plans to turn podcast into ‘genuine news program’,” by Hadas Gold: “Bill O'Reilly wasted no time stepping back into the media limelight following his stunning fall from grace last week, when he was pushed out of Fox News. On his podcast, which O'Reilly made free for this week, he said he plans to develop his website and the podcast, moving it from a short daily program into what would amount to a replacement for his long-running Fox show. ‘And then as we develop the website, we’ll have guests and things like that, and this will become longer and longer and longer, into a genuine news program. That’s the vision right now,’ O’Reilly said. After this week, those wishing to listen to O'Reilly's podcast will have to pay a fee.” http://politi.co/2p04v1a--“Tucker Carlson Is Shopping Around A Book,” by BuzzFeed’s Steven Perlberg: “On Monday night, Tucker Carlson assumed the prized 8 p.m. time slot on Fox News, a big step in the cable news host’s steady climb at the network over the past few months. Now Carlson is looking to raise his profile even more. According to three people familiar with the matter, the 47-year-old Fox host is shopping a book or series of books to publishers. ... [T]he ongoing auction will likely fetch Carlson millions of dollars. The book is not autobiographical in nature, but rather reflects on themes Carlson cares about ...
