Sure. Just as Trump was assumed competent as "CEO of America" until he proved otherwise.

I'll just sit here and wait.

You mean Trump's speech, I guess. Uh... where do I start?

"Rocket Man"? Seriously?

I felt about the same about Trump's speech as John Kelly felt:

Someone on reddit checked the time on Kelly's watch. The image coincides with Trump's wildly offscript "Rocket man" comments. So, tired of trying to keep a willful seven year old from talking to his teacher like he talks to his buddies. A one club golfer.

Trump said this:
"Africa has tremendous business potential, I have so many friends going to your countries trying to get rich. I congratulate you, they're spending a lot of money. It has tremendous business potential, representing huge amounts of different markets. ... It's really become a place they have to go, that they want to go."

I feel sorry for the simultaneous translators. How the hell do you decipher that bollocks, then translate it in a meaningful way?

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Special counsel Robert Mueller has requested documents and information covering a range of events from President Donald Trump's White House, including two firings and an Oval Office meeting, sources familiar with the matter tell CNN.

Mueller's investigators are looking for documents and emails relating to the dismissals of national security adviser Michael Flynn and FBI director James Comey, according to the sources. In addition, one source confirms that Mueller's team wants information connected to the Oval Office meeting Trump had with Russian officials in which he bragged about firing Comey, saying it eased pressure on his White House.

Net tightening?

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

It's starting to make the Cuban misslie crisis look like the fight scene from 'The Quiet Man'.

Quote:
US bombers have flown close to North Korea's east coast to demonstrate the military options available to defeat any threat, the Pentagon says....

...At the UN, North Korea's foreign minister said US President Donald Trump was on a "suicide mission"...

...Mr Ri added that "insults" by Mr Trump - who was, he aid, "mentally deranged and full of megalomania" - were an "irreversible mistake making it inevitable" that North Korean rockets would hit the US mainland
