White House Economic News, Christmas, & Oval Office Views, Plus MH Market Updates

CNNmoney11.30.2018ManufacturedHomeStocksMarketsReportsMHProNewsThere is more industry and other interconnected news than we could possibly cover as we are currently configured.  Actually, that’s true for any news organization. The New York Times and/or Fox News could each cover more news than they do, but it would take more time, talent, and treasure.  Here in MHVille trade media, MHProNews totally dominates in every possible way for content, readership, breadth of topics, and more.  We say thanks to readers and supporter alike, but it also means we must be curating – selecting – topics that our industry’s professionals and investors are finding useful and of interest. Periodically, that includes news and views share by the White House, which will be the case in our featured report tonight.


If you’re new, already hooked on our new spotlight feature – or are ready to get the MH professional fever – our headline report is found further belowafter the newsmaker bullets and major indexes closing tickers.


The evolving Daily Business News market report sets the manufactured home industry’s stocks in the broader context of the overall markets.  Headlines – at home and abroad – often move the markets.  So, this is an example of “News through the lens of manufactured homes, and factory-built housing.” ©

Part of this unique evening feature provides headlines – from both sides of the left-right media divide – which saves busy readers time, while underscoring topics that may be moving investors, which in turn move the markets.

Readers say this is also a useful quick-review tool that saves researchers time in getting a handle of the manufactured housing industry, through the lens of publicly-traded stocks connected with the manufactured home industry.

This is an exclusive evening or nightly example of MH “Industry News, Tips and Views, Pros Can Use.” © It is fascinating to see just how similar, and different, these two lists of headlines can be.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

This evening’s report is an assortment of topics, which is precisely what the White House provided us on MHProNews in the last roughly 30 hours. We get daily updates from the White House, along with reports from HUD, and numerous other federal offices and agencies.  Then, there are associations, companies, reader news tips, and so much more.  Plus, our own research on issues that experience tells us matters to manufactured housing.  But tonight, its a mix, including some lighter side for the Christmas season.  We wish our Jewish friends and colleagues a happy Hanukah.



President Trump Signs NAFTA Replacement Deal with Mexico, Canada

Earlier this morning, President Donald J. Trump signed a three-way trade deal with Mexico and Canada that will replace the outdated NAFTA if it is approved by Congress. “Trump signed the U.S. Mexico Canada trade agreement in Argentina on the side of the G-20 summit,” Pete Kasperowicz reports in the Washington Examiner.

“This is a model agreement that changes the trade landscape forever, and this is an agreement that first and foremost benefits working people, something of great importance to all three of us here today,” the President said.

“The International Labor Organization estimates that worldwide, nearly 25 million children and adults of all ages and backgrounds are victims of human trafficking, including forced labor and sex trafficking. Every government in the world has a moral obligation to do all in its power to stop these heinous crimes within its borders,” Advisor to the President Ivanka Trump writes in The Washington Post. “That is why President Trump took strong action on Thursday to hold accountable those governments that have persistently failed to meet the minimum standards for combating human trafficking in their countries.”

“Son-in-law and senior adviser to the president Jared Kushner received Mexico’s highest honor awarded to foreigners on Friday. Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto bestowed the Mexican Order of the Aztec Eagle to Kushner in a ceremony that President Trump made an unscheduled stop at Friday morning,” Katelyn Caralle reports in the Washington Examiner. “I believe we are at a historic place in the relationship between our two countries,” Mr. Kushner said during the ceremony.

“U.S. Border Patrol agents have arrested a member of the infamous Salvadoran MS-13 gang who admitted to authorities that he traveled with a caravan of Central American migrants who were hoping to qualify for asylum in America,” Mairead McArdle reports for National Review. “During questioning at the El Centro station, the Honduran citizen confessed that he is an active member of MS-13 and had intended to enter the country illegally after traveling to the U.S. with the caravan of thousands of other migrants. He is in custody pending his deportation back to Honduras.”


“New numbers from the Department of Homeland Security show that just 9 percent of asylum claims made by individuals from Central America turn out to be legitimate,” Katie Pavlich reports for Townhall. “The fact that only 9 percent of those who initially claim asylum are found eligible, indicates that we are expending most of our limited resources – detention space, court space and the time of our asylum officers and immigration judges – denying frivolous or illegitimate claims of asylum from the 9 out of 10 who are found ineligible,” DHS said in a statement.

The 96th lighting of the National Christmas Tree


Last night, President Donald J. Trump and First Lady Melania Trump celebrated a classic America tradition: the lighting of the National Christmas Tree.

“This is a time of the year for rejoicing with our family and friends, for spreading charity and goodwill in our commitment all over this country in all of our communities, and for giving thanks for all of the blessings in our lives,” the President said from the Ellipse at President’s Park, just steps from the White House.

“No matter one’s faith or beliefs, the Christmas season reflects all that is best in the American spirit.”

Every year, crowds withstand the sometimes frigid D.C. temperatures to witness the ceremony put on by the National Park Service and the National Park Foundation. Amid multiple musical performances by a range of guests, including the U.S. Army Band, the President and First Lady led a countdown to the tree’s first lighting of the season.

“On behalf of Melania and myself and the entire Trump family—many of whom are with us tonight—I want to again wish you all a very, very Merry Christmas.”

Watch President Trump and the First Lady lead the National Christmas Tree lighting.

First Lady Melania Trump talks opioid abuse at Liberty University
Yesterday morning, First Lady Melania Trump joined Eric Bolling, Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar, and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen at Liberty University in Virginia for a town hall on opioids.

“When I took on opioid abuse as one of the pillars of my initiative BeBest, I did it with the goal of helping children of all ages,” the First Lady said.

To a full stadium of students, she explained the scale of the problem and how each person can make a difference. More than 130 Americans die each day from opioid overdoses. Last year, those overdoses accounted for over 72,000 deaths—more than any previous year on record.

Under President Trump’s leadership, signs of hope are emerging. “The results speak for themselves,” Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway wrote last month. “Seizures of several kinds of illicit drugs are up, the number of new 30-day prescriptions is down and overdose deaths attributed to prescription pain medications have started to level.”

Watch highlights of the First Lady’s talk at Liberty University.
