Here's the Donald before he was put up for adoption ( on the right of course! ) I bet no one knew he was born in Afganistan!

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

The Republican candidate for Montana’s congressional seat has been charged with misdemeanor assault after he is alleged to have slammed a Guardian reporter to the floor on the eve of the state’s special election, breaking his glasses and shouting, “Get the hell out of here.”
He is also alleged to have punched the reporter.

Ben Jacobs, a Guardian political reporter, was asking Greg Gianforte, a tech millionaire endorsed by Donald Trump, about the Republican healthcare plan when the candidate allegedly “body-slammed” the reporter.

Seems Glanforte was unhappy about an earlier Guardian article linking him to Russia

Gianforte's campaign has been backed by “robo-calls” to voters from Trump.

Source

A statement by campaign spokesman Shane Scanlon blamed Jacobs for the altercation, saying “Jacobs was asked to leave,” the statement reads. “After asking Jacobs to lower the recorder, Jacobs declined.

This statement does not match what was actually recorded on the audio rcorder where there is no request to leave.

The election is today; wonder how voters will react?

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Attorney General Jeff Sessions did not disclose meetings he had last year with Russian officials when he applied for his security clearance, the Justice Department told CNN Wednesday.
According to Justice Department spokeswoman Sarah Isgur Flores, he and his staff were told by an FBI employee who assisted in filling out the form, known as the SF-86, that he didn't need to list dozens of meetings with foreign ambassadors that happened in his capacity as a senator.

Source

So it is claimed one of the highest legal authorities in the land requested legal advice from an FBI agent and failed to notice it was incorrect!
A more credible excuse would be "a big dog ran away with the documents"

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

And even the usually Trump supportive Fox News has a poll today that is not good for Trump

40 percent of voters approve of the job Trump is doing, down from 45 percent last month. Disapproval is up 5 points to 53 percent.

Meanwhile, a growing number of voters think Russian hackers helped Trump win in November: 44 percent feel that way, up from 32 percent in December. Now 49 percent think Russia didn’t make a difference to the presidential election. That was 59 percent five months ago.

In addition, by a 60-29 percent margin, voters think the real reason Trump fired Comey is because FBI investigations were harming the White House rather than because Comey was harming the agency.

Only 34 percent agree with Comey’s firing, and confidence in the FBI mostly held steady at 79 percent since his dismissal. By comparison, 45 percent of voters have confidence in Trump.

A 54 percent majority opposes the GOP healthcare bill that passed the U.S. House to replace Obamacare and about that same number, 53 percent, feels Obamacare has been “mostly a good thing” for the country.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Did you watch this man's behaviour at the EU summit - just beyond belief and says it all



Look at the face of the others - almost the same as the Pope's Who is the guy he pushed aside quite brusquely to park himself with that stupid smile and chest out?

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Muslim ban still blocked!!
Quote:
A federal appeals court upheld Thursday a ruling blocking President Donald Trump's travel ban against six Muslim-majority countries.

The 10-3 ruling from the 4th US Circuit Court of Appeals upholds a lower court's decision to halt core portions of the executive order indefinitely.

The court makes extensive use of Trump's comments during his campaign when he called for a full ban on Muslims from entering the United States as evidence against this executive order.
Source

I am surprised!
I thought this second attempt at implementing a "Muslim ban" would succeed because Trump should have enough people capable of drafting an executive order for him that actually complies with the US Constitution?

Next step will be the Supreme Court; if they do agree to review the Appeal Court decision (which is not guaranteed) then likely we will have to wait for Autumn for this review!
