Why? Because of Trumps outstanding analytical abilities?
LOL!
No, because if you have the President in the boat using the bully pulpit then there is usually more focus and resources to drive things forward!

I agree the Trump voting commission that collapsed was an exception, maybe!

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Dow Jones fell 250 points so under 25,000 points again yesterday, almost 2,000 points below its best of a month ago.
Good it is just a temporary drop

Down another 166 points today

Tax reform
Just 25 percent of registered voters reported an increase in their pay check according to a new Politico/Morning Consult poll.
Only thirty-two percent of Republicans said they have noticed higher paychecks,

Unlike the 1% who all saw an increase

Meanwhile Dem wins formerly GOP Kentucky state House seat in district Trump won by 49 points.

Like the phrasing. They make so much anyway, they don't notice increase unless it is really significant?

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

And Melania's Slovenian parents now have permant residency in the States. Isn't that a surprise.

And Trump's approval rating drops to 37%.

What do you expect for parents-in-law of the president of USA? I guess security reasons prevail common gossipers' vain interests.
If I were a Republican I would be more concerned about approval rating drop.

Aside from the fact that he needs a cue card to stay on topic...

He has "45" embroidered on his shirt cuff!

What a wanker!

"45" embroidered on his shirt cuff!; just to ensure he wears the shirt the correct way round.

How would the embroidering help there? I would think that he would notice it was on backwards as soon as he tried to do any of the buttons up!

Have you ever attempted critical thinking? It would really improved your posts on EF, for starters.

Donald Trump criticizes US immigration policy.

He then exploits the same US immigration policy to his advantage.

You then criticize him for exploiting the very policy that he spoke out against.

Don't hate the player, hate the game.

Former Trump aide Richard Gates to plead guilty, agrees to testify against Manafort.

http://www.latimes.com/politics/la-n...218-story.html
Trump campaign aide Rick Gates actually pleads guilty today in court in Mueller investigation indictments so confirming he is cooperating with the FBI and special counsel Mueller.

Will be interesting to see Manafort's next moves. The net around Trump is slowly tightening

Edit: "Former Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort issued a statement Friday expressing disappointment over the decision of his long-tme business associate, Rick Gates, to plead guilty to two charges stemming from special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation.
In the statement, Manafort maintained his innocence and said that he had hoped that Gates would have had the "strength" to fight the charges against them at trial.
"Notwithstanding that Rick Gates pled today, I continue to maintain my innocence," Manafort wrote."

Brave words but will they be followed by brave actions??
