I am sure nobody in the Trump family would abuse their position to make money.

BTW, the Trump owned Mar-a-Lago (the winter White House!); the non-refundable membership fee was doubled to $200,000 within weeks of his election.

in the family no....but Spicer.....

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

About the claim that Trump's travel ban does not apply to Green Card holders, from the Appeal Court decision;

Quote:
“The White House counsel is not the President, and he is not known to be in the chain of command for any of the Executive Departments,” the court wrote. “We cannot say that the current interpretation by White House counsel [about Green Card holders], even if authoritative and binding, will persist past the immediate stage of these proceedings.”
In short, the court found the administration essentially unbelievable, as have many of Trump’s critics.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Interesting article in the "failing" New York Times about how Trump could so easily make his Presidency successful, just by keeping it simple and sticking to his campaign promises. I hope that Trump doesn't read it .

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

But will Trump restore the " Death Panel " that was introduced into Obamacare but subsequently stopped?

Bit of a spat started by Trump today with Mark Cuban
and Cuban's last tweet

I don't know. But isn't it better for all of us that he is tweeting rather than trying to govern ? https://twitter.com/iSlutsky/status/830792496787623936

Twitter seems to be having issues with any replies to Trump, supporters or otherwise. It wouldn't shock me if other social media with similar comment features are also collapsing under the volume.

Instead of producing faults why not take those servers - and the FB ones - off the net for a few days while fixing the problem?
I'm sure a break would do the world the world of good

Thanks to the Scots, #SCROTUS is trending on twitter - so called ruler of the united states.

It's exhausting to keep up with it all.

Baldwin is rather lame, his caricature isn't that good to begin with and with every episode it's just more of the same old .

McCarthy as Spicer OTOH is un.be.lie.va.ble !!

Well, you've got the "us vs them" part right but to dismiss anyone who opposes anything put forth by Trump as simply a "libtard" is being shortsighted.(
it's their words. i'm using their words, it's a circular usage. but happy if you come up with an alternative short replacement.

I have plenty of conservative friends that voted for Trump but who are not happy about how the ban was written and implemented. The idea you think a "leader" who pits people against each other is a "winner" is a bit sad.
He's winning the game of consolidating his power and increasing his influence.

Why are the libtards so blind. It's like they are playing chess but seeing only number of pieces and not the board on which they move.

Case in point:

So long as he keeps losing court cases he will not be able to achieve much?
Let me put this scenario to you. Trump orders that the judges order be ignored. What are the chances that people will comply and enforce the ban one way or another? Substantially and uncomfortably higher than 0%, I'd say.

Give him a couple more years, and more crazy but populist proposals that are blocked by the courts...

I can easily see him being able to not only fully consolidate his power in his first term, but succeed in neutralizing the checks on his power from other branches of government.
