Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Quote:
Billionaire philanthropist and Democratic presidential hopeful Tom Steyer has purchased a site with President Trump’s campaign slogan, “Keep America Great,” which now redirects visitors to a page calling the president a “fraud” and “failure.”
This election is turning into a Billionaire's playground.

When visitors go to KeepAmericaGreat.com, they have the option to donate $1 in exchange for a bumper sticker that reads, “Trump is a fraud & a failure.”

Dow down around 300 points since, mainly due to Trump waving tariffs around again.

One can only admire Trump's great deal of effort to avoid the stock markets to overheat.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

America's manufacturing sector in November contracted for the fourth straight month, according to an industry survey released Monday; so this sector is technically in recession.
Survey respondents continued to complain of tariffs, trade uncertainty and weak orders.

Quote:
A federal appeals court in Washington, D.C., on Monday denied the Justice Department's efforts to lift a temporary halt on four federal executions.

The department had appealed a trial judge's ruling last month that ordered a stay of the executions while a separate legal challenge to the Trump administration's new lethal injection protocol plays out.

The longest-running of the four lawsuits was filed 16 years ago.
The cases went dormant during the Obama administration amid a shortage of lethal injection drugs.
Meanwhile as part of the slowly changing GOP story and retreat we now have "House Republicans are expected to argue President Trump did not intend for his dealings with Ukraine to benefit him politically, but rather that the president made "entirely prudent" decisions driven by a "reasonable skepticism" about corruption in the country."

They seem to be falling into the trap that Trump warned them of;
Quote:
Donald J. Trump@realDonaldTrump

The call to the Ukrainian President was PERFECT. Read the Transcript! There was NOTHING said that was in any way wrong.
Republicans, don’t be led into the fools trap of saying it was not perfect, but is not impeachable. No, it is much stronger than that.
NOTHING WAS DONE WRONG!

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Dow falls more than 400 points after Trump warns China trade war could go beyond 2020 election
All the optimists who believed his frequent statements that the talks were going well and bought shares are counting their losses; hopefully, they will not rush to sell and start a panic.
Why doesn't he learn to keep his mouth shut?

Meanwhile, it is rumoured Attorney General William Barr is rejecting a key finding in the Justice Department inspector general’s report on the Russia probe, that the FBI had enough intelligence to initiate an investigation into the Trump campaign in July 2016.

Luckily the inspector general is independent and Barr cannot change his report.

So much for the long-standing protocol that dictates the FBI and Justice Department operate free of political influence or meddling from the White House. Barr is rapidly turning into Trump's private attorney.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

From the President whose lies are more easily disproved than Walter Mitty's.

""I don't know Prince Andrew, Duke of York, but it's a tough story," Trump said in London during a press appearance today on the sidelines of the NATO summit. "I don't know him, no."

So from as long ago as June

Maybe Trump thought Andrew was the butler? Or the PA?

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

One of Trump's favourite claims is that China is paying his tariffs and so pouring billions into the US.

Trump's own administration publishes data that shows import prices in $ are little changed (ca. 2%) since tariffs began, despite a 12% drop in the value of the Yuan in the same period so the Chinese are actually earning more for their products in Yuan!
It is the US consumers and companies who pay the tariffs.

President Trump on Wednesday called Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau "two-faced" after a viral clip circulated showing Trudeau gossiping about the president's conduct at bilateral NATO meetings a day earlier.

"Well, he’s two-faced," Trump said when asked if he'd seen the video.

LOL!

Despite the official statements that Boris would not meet Trump during this NATO meeting.

Talked about numerous subjects including @NATO and Trade.

This.

Haven't read every reply but this is exactly the word that came to my mind too. Incredulity plus a bit of "Man, thank goodness I had good parents!"

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

As people forecast, this election campaign is getting very dirty.
Quote:
Former Vice President Joe Biden blasted President Trump on Wednesday.

In a video released by Biden's Twitter account, ominous music plays as news anchors discuss footage of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and French President Emmanuel Macron discussing Trump's lengthy press conference earlier Wednesday.

"The world is laughing at President Trump. They see him for what he really is: dangerously incompetent and incapable of world leadership
