Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

And now Friday is gone

Twitter: Employee briefly shut down Trump's account on last day of work

Quote:
John Schindler‏@20committee

If Trump's Twitter is down, does this technically mean he's no longer POTUS?

I mean, it's the only part of the job he pays attention to.


More Friday stuff

Energy Secretary Rick Perry suggested Thursday that expanding the use of fossil fuels could help prevent sexual assault.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Trump administration is about to make solar power too expensive for Americans!
Up to 88,000 American jobs are at risk if the Trump administration imposes tariffs on solar photovoltaic imports, a move that is increasingly likely after a recommendation issued by the International Trade Commission on Tuesday. Following contentious hearings in a trade case that has rocked the industry, the commissioners recommended tariffs of 35 percent on some imported panels.

Trump approval polls.
Of the 10 major national polls conducted over the past month, the highest -- repeat: the highest -- Trump's approval rating has been is 38%. The lowest is 33%. Trump's average approval rating over those 10 polls is 37.1%. His average disapproval? 57.1%.

Would very much appreciate Saudi Arabia doing their IPO of Aramco with the New York Stock Exchange. Important to the United States!
The President of the US used to be the most powerful man in the world commanding everyone; now this President is begging extremist Arabs to hand out commission paying employment!

Yes, but keep in mind his approval ratings among Republicans is over 70% in most polls. It shows the deep divide in the country. I still have loads of friends who truly think Trump is fantastic and he's going to fix everything.

Because Chinese is read top to bottom, right to left. So spin the magazine round to have the Chinese at the top and it folds out as Chinese people would expect.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

isn't it ironic that Kevin Spacey loses his gig pretending to be the US president after being accused of sexual assault, while Trump keeps his gig being the US president after admitting to sexual assault?

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

President Donald Trump visited one of his Trump-branded properties in Hawaii on Saturday shortly before he was scheduled to depart for Japan amid his 13-day trip to Asia.

Trump was accompanied by White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and senior adviser Jared Kushner.

The visit marks Trump's 97th day at a Trump-owned property during his time in office, according to MSNBC.

From am ethics viewpoint it is good that Trump has severed all connections with his businesses

Edit- The Trump Organization has won the permission to hire 70 foreign workers to serve as maids, cooks and servers for the 2017-2018 tourist season, according to data from the U.S. Labor Department.

The Palm Beach Post reported Friday that Trump's Mar-A-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida, won the permission after first applying for the H-2B visas in July. The request was originally filed during Trump's "Made In America week" at the White House.

Good that such immigration is reduced for other people?
