The State Department’s entire senior management team just resigned.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s job running the State Department just got considerably more difficult. The entire senior level of management officials resigned Wednesday, part of an ongoing mass exodus of senior foreign service officers who don’t want to stick around for the Trump era.

Border Patrol chief out day after Trump border fence decree.
The Border Patrol chief is leaving the agency on the heels of President Donald Trump's announcement of an ambitious plan to build a massive wall at the Mexican border and hire 5,000 Border Patrol agents.

Now where will Trump find a billionaire to run the Border Patrol; surely he will not sink to mere millionaires?

Can you define what you mean by damage left by Obama or just make unsubstantiated and baseless allegations?
Hopefully you weren't so emotionally taken by the 'HOPE' and 'CHANGE' BS that you were looking the other way while Obama was committing war crimes and eroding civil liberties..

Here's a good video to watch if you have a moment:

That said, don't confuse me for one of the EF Trump fanboys.. I'm just hoping that Trump isn't worse than Obama, but won't be holding my breath because it looks like disaster brewing on the horizon.

While some resign en masse, some are arrested for covering the protest during the inauguration:

Here is Obama claiming that Islam teaches peace.

Unfortunately the 2016 Summer of Islamic Terrorism determined that this was a lie (or the last 1400 years if you prefer )

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Impressed with Trump's efficiency so far. Signing off executive orders like autographs. Wall, deportations, immigration, middle finger extended toward treaties. He's not messing about.

And all this amidst the endless cry-wanking protests. Protest every day and it takes away the meaning. I reckon even many Democrats are getting fed up of them.

Directly, no I didn't quite say that.


"he's really no different than many other 'corrupt' politician "



more in the case, that he can flip/flops, makes promises that aren't fulfilled, has passionate inspiring speeches which motivate and inspire the masses, then on non-public facing side made some decisions that most people, who were 'inspired' by his speeches would perhaps feel quite betrayed by.
Then he is different as corrupt politicians have an agenda for personal financial or other personal gains.

Obama is not one of those politicians. His decisions were not for personal financial gain.

Perhaps use a different similie next time?

Trump on the other hand has already acted in a corrupt manner, after he was elected but before his inauguration by encouraging Ukip leader Nigel Farage to oppose the building of wind farms which were a blight on the landscape, especially if they were to be built next to Trump's Scottish golf courses.

You are saying the actions of a few represent the many! Many more people have been killed in gun violence in the US then from Islamic terrorism, and many more innocent muslims have been killed at hands of the American war machine! But go on believing your feck wit ideas mate!

But Islam does teach peace; some isolated instances of acts of terror are not a credible counter argument

And he doesn't even have a cabinet yet. He has an incredible amount of energy. I hope he doesn't crash.

Would be more impressed if he was writing the Executive Orders; spending two or three minutes per day signing orders that somebody else wrote is not really a big deal.

Pity he does not wait for the Cabinet to be in place; currently it is all run by his transition team who will not be around when the brown stuff hits the fan

So because America has problems with gun violence it somehow negates Islamic terrorism? See, that is not an argument; it is a diversion.

The sad part is the only thing his detractors and opposition has is a hope for failure. Very sad state.

His approval rating is at 59%. All the wailing and the media fabrications failed.

He won again...
