In other news, the ACLU has issued a travel warning informing those who are traveling to Texas to be aware that their constitutional rights may be violated by the state's new "papers please" law.
Meanwhile, Michael Flynn's last sycophant on the National Security Council, K.T. McFarland, is being replaced. Some good news.
Finally, Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross is the second Trump cabinet member downplaying the prospects of economic growth, but he's blaming Congress for it. He also admitted that Trump has already increased our trade deficit through sheer idiocy.
The GDP target "is certainly not achievable this year," Ross told Reuters in an interview. "The Congress has been slow-walking everything. We don't even have half the people in place." [...]
Ross also acknowledged that the Trump administration's announcement that it wants to renegotiate NAFTA had contributed to the Mexican peso's decline and "misalignment" against the dollar.
He said this was a "bizarre" situation that made Mexican goods cheaper and increased the U.S. trade deficit, adding that it was worsened by congressional delays in launching the start of NAFTA talks and confirming the nominee for U.S. Trade Representative, Robert Lighthizer.
