China’s sorghum imports in May jump, despite anti-dumping probe

China’s imports of sorghum in May rose 59 percent year on year to 470,000 tonnes, customs data showed on Saturday, despite an anti-dumping move by Beijing a month earlier that had roiled the grains trade.

Cramer Remix: The best way to play the stress test results

If you think President Donald Trump has gotten as aggressive as he’ll get on the trade front, “you ain’t seen nothin’ yet,” CNBC’s Jim Cramer said Friday.

This week repeated a striking, if familiar, pattern: President Trump described a world detached from reality. On Twitter, at the White House, and on the campaign trail, Trump did more than get facts wrong. Over and over, he painted fundamentally false portraits of people and events to flatter himself, discredit predecessors and rivals, and promote his political objectives. Some highlights: At 6 a.m., Trump sought to contrast his immigration policies with Germany’s, tweeting crime “is…
