Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

It would be interesting to know where you draw the line of "irrational", though. As an example where Trump rambles on about uranium
Quote:
We had Hillary Clinton give Russia 20 percent of the uranium in our country. You know what uranium is, right? This thing called nuclear weapons like lots of things are done with uranium including some bad things.

Nobody talks about that. I didnít do anything for Russia. Iíve done nothing for Russia. Hillary Clinton gave them 20 percent of our uranium
Actually Trump's statement was complete rubbish!

The Canadian company involved is a mining company; they dig the stuff up. They obtained the licence to mine uranium in the US, they have no right to move the uranium out of the US and also never obtained an export licence.

The 20% is also wrong. The mining licence obtained by the Canadian company gave them rights to a 20% share of the Uranium mining licences issued not 20% of the US uranium.

Subsequently the US issued more Uranium mining licences and now their share is ca. 2.5%.
