I get the feeling the apprentice isn't enjoying being the apprentice as much as he thought he would.

Oh, and look. The Swiss now have a petition to ban him from entering the country. Signees please step forward.

UK petition is almost up to 1,850,000 signatures.
This petition is not a smart thing

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Has there been any world leader anywhere, at any time who has been the subject of international ridicule so early into his tenure?

To Phos et al. We're not whining. We're laughing.

What a loser!

We're laughing. Everyone's laughing.

What part of that are you finding difficult to understand?

I just think that while human beings are being banned from entering the US based on where they're from then we shouldn't be laughing.

If you find something humorous about the situation then it says a lot about you...

I seem to remember a precedent being set earlier in the thread on multiple occasions that the whole Trump thing was "fun"? Looking back, you were "thanking" most of them...

Reality is suddenly not so much "fun" is it? I agree...

Fun, no.

Amusing, definitely!

What is our country coming to when a judge can halt a Homeland Security travel ban and anyone, even with bad intentions, can come into U.S.?
It is back to being a travel ban!
When did it become "a Homeland Security travel ban"?

you should really read this Constitution thing at some point, it'll help a lot, think of the Constitution as the Value Menu at KFC basically, that's what's available to you - and even if you're the KFC's manager, you still can't order a burger!

"EVEN with bad intentions" implies that safety and people with bad intentions are an afterthought. Which is weird.

Well, maybe the penny dropped and I realized the error of my ways and think this ban should be condemned by all.

Lo and behold, I return to this thread to find you and your cronies laughing it up big league about kids being handcuffed at the airport.
Where's the shame emoji when you need it?

The laughing is directed at Trump and his string of epic fails. Nothing funny about the people being pissed about with visas and immigration.

Will the countries impacted by the travel ban (now recinded) reciprocate by removing their own travel bans?

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

It looks like hedge fund executive and Wall Street commentator Anthony Scaramucci won't be getting any sort of role at the White House, at least not in the immediate future.
Scaramucci, who heads SkyBridge Capital and was one of Trump's earliest vocal supporters and donors in the financial world, was dropped from consideration for an advisory post, senior White House officials told the New York Times this week.
At issue were ethical and conflict-of-interest concerns about his recent sale of a majority stake in SkyBridge to the Chinese conglomerate HNA Group, which reportedly has strong ties to China's ruling Communist Party.

Scaramucci was the only official member of the incoming U.S. administration in attendance this year at the WEF.

Seems "you're fired" rules

You mean like Norway?

Quote:
Norwegians do not ordinarily need a visa to enter the United States, and Mr. Bondevik carries a diplomatic passport that identifies him as a former prime minister of Norway. So he was surprised that the agents would not let him move on. Among the travelers he waited with were visitors from Iran and Somalia, two of the seven Muslim-majority countries that were on Mr. Trump’s travel ban.
