Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Muhammad Ali Jr. (US born muslim) and his mother detained for hours at Fort Lauderdale airport and asked repeatedly: are you muslim? where did you get this name from? To the Ali family, it's crystal clear that this is directly linked to Mr. Trump's efforts to ban Muslims from the United States.

It's no doubt that Muhammad Ali is the epitome of the US champion and hero. He is a recognized legend with unwavering conviction. A man who embodies hundreds of years of conflicts, struggles, and hopes of minorities in the US. He proclaims himself as the world greatest, and millions around the world could not dispute it, but agreed with him.

It's sad and disheartening to see the backward step US administration is taking when it comes to civil rights, religious and spiritual freedom for minorities.

"I ain't got no quarrel with the Vietcong. No Vietcong ever called me nigger”.........we should add no Vietcong questioned my religious beliefs & freedom.

LOL. The White House meets with any press they choose to. Obama hand picked which press he met with, and excluded others. He even investigated some for asking the wrong questions.

Nevertheless, its fun to watch Tapper and the rest whine.

Fake news about fake news.
Good to see Trump following Obama's lead; let us hope it continues

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

maybe familiarize yourself with the basics?:

"For America the chief geopolitical prize is Eurasia…and America's global primacy is directly dependent on how long and how effectively its preponderance on the Eurasian continent is sustained." --Brzezinski

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Is there a possibility to change your vote on a poll? Or is it time for a new one with the added 'NOW'?

I think thats the point, he would love to be able to do that. The fascist bit comes from the similarity he and his cronies have to past fascist regimes and how they respond to the media who disagree with them and how they are selectively laying the blame of Americas ills on minority groups and the most marginalised in society, how they use lies and then accuse others of lying, including threatening rhetoric to attack opponents of their policies. He condones torture, he endorses the Christian right, his main advisor is Steve Bannon, need I say more?

And you still don't get it!
He still isn't a fascist.

P.s. Are media bans only fascist when Trump does them?

Fake news about fake news.
Which roughly translates as...

"I don't agree with what you say so I'magonna say that Obama did the same."

Psst... Obama unsuccessfully attempted to block Fox News from a round of TV interviews.

You're welcome...

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

You have to laugh when the Daily Mail also gets barred! It's just like travel restrictions for people from countries that have never carried out a single terrorist attack on US soil yet still allowing those from Saudi Arabia whose citizens carried out the largest ever! The Trump administration is beyond confused about how to carry out its own policies.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Those news outlets have cast themselves as not much more than tabloid journalism anyway. Just about everything they are reporting about Trump and the White House are merely gossips and innuendos.

Its about time the White House took them down a notch, and put lesser known impartial media up a notch. Should have done it sooner.

Impartial media.

The only 'impartial' media is the one that aligns itself with your own views.

Same for everyone no matter how you try to play otherwise.
