In other news, White House officials say Trump will not be announcing a date for a so-called summit with Chinese President Xi Jinping because they still don't have something to sign.

Meanwhile, Foreign Policy reports that National Security Adviser John Bolton is launching a new campaign to contain China's influence at the UN even though it was Bolton who pushed for American withdrawal from the UN.

Finally, San Diego County has filed a federal lawsuit against the Trump regime because they're dumping asylum seekers on the streets instead of connecting them with relatives or charities.

The suit, filed by the county’s Board of Supervisors in the U.S. Distict Court in Southern California, asks a judge to issue an injunction ordering the federal government to resume its “Safe Release” program which ended in October.

The program had helped people seeking asylum reach relatives in the U.S. or connect with charities dedicated to helping migrants. [...]

The county has already spent over 1.3 million dollars operating a downtown shelter to accommodate asylum seekers, she wrote. “That figure is ballooning by the day.”
