Sunday shows preview: Trade talks, Cohen sentencing memo take center stage

President TrumpDonald John TrumpMcCabe says he was fired because he 'opened a case against' Trump McCabe: Trump said 'I don't care, I believe Putin' when confronted with US intel on North Korea McCabe: Trump talked to me about his election victory during 'bizarre' job interview MORE's trade negotiations with North American countries and his tariff truce with the China will be the focus of Sunday's news shows, as members of the White House economic team join the networks to discuss the president's discussions with China and replacement for the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow will appear on "Fox News Sunday," where he will likely face questions about Thursday's stock market slide largely attributed to fears about economic growth and Trump's trade war with China.


The slide was largely erased Thursday afternoon following news that the Federal Reserve may soon implement a pause in planned interest rate hikes, but fears about the future of the president's trade negotiations with China remain. The two countries agreed upon a 90-day pause in tariff hikes last week, with the understanding that hikes would continue if a deal was not reached within that time period.

Another top issue in this week's headlines was the Friday filing of a sentencing memo for Michael Cohen, Trump's longtime lawyer and fixer, on behalf of prosecutors from the Southern District of New York, who wrote that Cohen and the president were involved in an illegal hush money scheme during the later days of the 2016 election to pay off women who claimed to have had affairs with Trump.
