At least once he was sincere.

Quote:
Kind of like how WWII made Europe a better place, once the rubble had been cleared up - Mr Trump might be the catalyst for a much better America.

What do you reckon? Maybe I'm just a dreamer, but I'm not the only one...
Define better - less meddlesome abroad? If so, 59 Tomahawks and purportedly (IIRC) $60bln in arms deals with KSA say otherwise.

His own Embassy was quick to distance itself from it's President's ramblings. You've got to be a special kind of stupid to troll the Mayor of London just hours after a major attack on his city.

One does wonder if the man is a sandwich short of a picnic!

Quote:
Donald J. Trump‏ @realDonaldTrump 32 minutes ago

People, the lawyers and the courts can call it whatever they want, but I am calling it what we need and what it is, a TRAVEL BAN!
Quote:
Donald J. Trump‏ @realDonaldTrump 30 minutes ago

The Justice Dept. should have stayed with the original Travel Ban, not the watered down, politically correct version they submitted to S.C.
Quote:
Donald J. Trump‏ @realDonaldTrump 22 minutes ago

The Justice Dept. should ask for an expedited hearing of the watered down Travel Ban before the Supreme Court - & seek much tougher version!
It cannot be possible that he shows these tweets to a lawyer before he sends them`.

He seems to ignore the fact that the Justice Department follow his instructions!!

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

George Conway, husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, took a swipe at President Donald Trump on Twitter Monday, shortly after his wife criticized people "obsessed" with the president's tweets.

Quote:
George Conway @gtconway3d

These tweets may make some ppl feel better, but they certainly won't help OSG get 5 votes in SCOTUS, which is what actually matters. Sad. https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/...75245043888128

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

A web site has published a secret NSA document detailing how Russia successfully hacked a US manufacturer of voting systems before the Presidential election.
Seems to be genuine because a US Govt. contractor has now been charged with distributing classified information!

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Only in the USA!

Quote:
A pro-Trump outside group is seeking to label James Comey (ex FBI director) as untrustworthy ahead of the former FBI director's scheduled testimony on Capitol Hill on Thursday.

The nonprofit Great America Alliance said Tuesday it would air a TV and social media ad calling Comey "just another DC insider only in it for himself."

The ads have $400,000 behind them, the group said.
Source

This will only make finding a new FBI director more difficult; five people have already withdrawn from consideration!

And on the subject of Trump's great relations with his staff, today's rumour is "US Attorney General Jeff Sessions offered to quit during exchange with Trump"

Source

Meanwhile Trump's staff are as confused as ever;
On Monday 5th June "KELLYANNE CONWAY SAYS MEDIA SHOULD STOP COVERING DONALD TRUMP’S TWEETS" Source

On Tuesday 6th June "Trump’s Tweets ‘Official Statements,’ Spicer Says"

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Four top law firms reportedly turned down requests to represent President Trump in the investigation into ties between his administration and Russia.

Lawyers from the firms declined to represent Trump in the probe over concerns that he would not take their advice.

“The concerns were, ‘The guy won’t pay and he won’t listen,’ ” one lawyer close to the White House told Yahoo [news].

So, he's going to immediately blow billions on deporting 2-3 million illegal immigrants, tying up how many hours of police time? Building how many new concentration ca...sorry! detention facilities? Paying for how many flights? Then there's court costs, because there will have to be some due legal process involved. Then there's getting their country of origin to repatriate them? etc...etc...etc....

Perfect time for al Qaeda to plan another hit
Does not seem to be going well for Trump!

According to Syracuse University here, there is currently a back log of 600,000 immigration (deportation) cases waiting to be heard. On average people wait almost two years for their case to get to court, many courts have delays of 3, 4 or even more years.

The case backlog has doubled in the last seven years and is expected to increase.
