President Donald Trump is enacting new rules, regulations, and orders that it hopes will box in President-elect Joe Biden's administration on numerous foreign-policy matters. WASHINGTON (AP) — On its way out the door, the Trump administration is enacting new rules, regulations and orders that it hopes will box in President-elect Joe Biden's administration on numerous foreign policy matters and cement President Donald Trump's "America First" legacy in international affairs. Last week, the State Department's policy planning office released a 70-page China policy strategy document. The Trump administration had said it wasn't interested in extending the New START treaty unless China also joined, something Beijing has rejected. As the transition to the Biden administration approaches, those negotiations remain a work in progress.

The move drew a swift rebuke from the Fed, which wanted to continue the programs. However, Mnuchin also asked that other programs that were supported by Treasury capital come to an end for now. But they were sparsely used for the most part and the subject of some criticism, particularly the Main Street facility. While the Fed and Treasury have worked closely through the crisis on the programs, they differed on the fate of them. Those programs that received Treasury collateral under the CARES Act will be coming to an end.

In recent days, President Donald Trump has shaken up Pentagon leadership, firing his defense secretary and installing several officials seen as loyalists. AP Photo/Patrick SemanskyTrump's motives for the Pentagon shakeup are unclear, but it has created a great deal of unease within the building. Is there a broader plan to enact policy changes that Trump could tout in his final days as commander in chief? Swift and radical changes in Trump's final 10 weeks are unlikely in a building that prides itself on exhaustive planning. Fulfilling the goal of pulling all troops out could be Trump's final fist pump as commander in chief.
