US President Donald Trump has reversed course in the space of 24 hours on an array of populist positions he adopted during the election campaign.
He declared Nato was "no longer obsolete" and dropped his pledge to declare China a currency manipulator.
Mr Trump also said he was no longer opposed to a federal exports agency he once dismissed as "unnecessary".
And the president signalled he was open to reappointing Janet Yellen as head of the Federal Reserve.
Meanwhile, his administration dropped a freeze on federal hiring that it imposed in January.
The about-faces suggest the mercurial Mr Trump may be favouring a more pragmatic, moderate approach to the hardline economic nationalism that helped elect him.

'Muh Globalist' anyone?
But seriously, is anyone really surprised? he said what he had to to get elected, dog-whistled the Alt-Right , Far-Right, Nationalist, and now trying to pander to the Neocon centrist, no different than any other president.

Well for any of those worried. We have a classic politician saying what people want to hear and constantly changing platform.
While everyone bickers about the small things, well be distracted while true agendas are pushed through shadows.
And with these military maneuvers once a week to flood the news cycle I Wounder what is being planned.....
