“All in all, President Trump is attempting to make do on the promises he set forth during the 2016 election: he wishes to strengthen the economy and strike more amenable trade agreements. But if he wishes to truly achieve the ‘fair trade’ he seeks, a cap on the rhetoric and a place to negotiate with Beijing are in order. Until then, disaster seems to be on the horizon.”

"Emory is currently the second-largest employer in metropolitan Atlanta, meaning that annexation would allow it to further integrate its workforce with that of the city.
