Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

A new indictment has been unsealed in special counsel Robert Mueller’s criminal case against former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.

The latest indictment accuses Manafort, with Gates’s help, of secretly retaining a group of former senior European politicians to take positions that were favorable to Ukraine as part of their illegal lobbying work for Kiev’s government. That work included lobbying in the United States.

Manafort wired over $2 million from his offshore accounts to pay these former politicians, the indictment alleges.

Ooohhh!

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Despite Trump's repeated pledges to get undocumented immigrants "out" of the country he has actually deported fewer than Obama.

In 2017, the Trump administration deported nearly 215,000 immigrants according to ICE statistics, 13% fewer than the nearly 250,000 deported by Obama in 2016.

In 2017 under Trump, ICE made routine arrests of more than 155,000 immigrants, in 2016 the Obama administration arrested almost 110,000.

It makes him someone who did not deliver his campaign promises?

Since he is arresting more people than Obama but deporting fewer then the result is the pool of immigrants waiting for their deportation court hearing is getting larger.
Consequently a lot more immigrants are sitting in jail for much longer.

The backlog in the U.S. immigration courts has reached an all-time high, with 632,261 cases pending as of August 2017. In some of the nation’s largest immigration courts, people wait an average of three to five years for their next hearing. Trump Administration policies are making it worse.

So overall I would claim it makes him bad!

All I'm finding so far is references to the 'Hapsburg Group' and a former Chancellor. Hmmm... Has the plot thickened or is it quicksand from here on in.

Sorry, I don't ask questions I already know the answers to as I still have too many to which I don't.

In the Austrian press, shortlived former Chancellor, Alfred Gusenbauer, is denying his involvement...

Quote:
Österreichs Ex-Bundeskanzler Alfred Gusenbauer (SPÖ) hat sich laut US-Behörden 2013 an verdecktem Lobbying für den damaligen ukrainischen Präsidenten Viktor Janukowitsch in den USA beteiligt.

According to the US authorities, Austria's ex-Chancellor Alfred Gusenbauer (SPÖ) took part in concealed lobbying in 2013 for the then Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich in the USA.

Having translated this article, it's such a tangled web that I doubt Trump would be able to grasp the legality of it all, and even is he did, he's such a scofflaw that he probably thought it was too far removed from him to matter.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Mexican president's US visit called off after border wall row with Trump.
Enrique Peña Nieto visit delayed after phone spat with US president over Mexico’s refusal to pay for wall.

Source

It was always one of Trump's nuttier claims that Mexico would pay for the wall but not as nutty as his supporters who stood and cheered for his nonsense.

Romano Prodi, the former Italian prime minister and European Commission president, Alfred Gusenbauer, the former Austrian chancellor, andAleksander Kwasniewski, Poland’s former president, all said on Saturday that they had been big backers of stronger EU-Ukraine ties in 2012 and 2013 when Mr Manafort’s secret lobbying campaign was allegedly underway.

But all three denied that they had received any funds from Mr Manafort.

Well they would wouldn't they

This is the truth of the matter. The Democrats have not done the hard work of rebuilding themselves into a party with vote-winning policies. They've been happy just to let hatred of Trump be their policy. And that is unlikely be enough. God save America.

Someone needs to tell the US population, it's not the comedian grammies they're voting about.
