Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Not a good day all round then. A Panama hotel has also chucked him out

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-latin-america-43297902

and he's fallen 222 places on the Forbes Rich List.

Shame ain't it.

In Italy there is now strong support for anti immigration and "send them home" approaches but is that real option? Will it work in practice?

Trump:

Lowest rated Oscars in HISTORY. Problem is, we don’t have Stars anymore - except your President (just kidding, of course)!

This is exactly the problem. He sees himself as a star, not as a politician. He delivers the "Trump at the White House" soap daily.

It is very, very surprising that real-life seems to take a break while he's at it. But will that work for 4 (8?) years?!

On the other hand he seems to prove that real life in the world goes on without an American president. (Something that does not really surprise me though).

Originally I did not believe the allegations about Trump colluding with Russia and Putin having blackmail material on Trump but as time goes on I do start to wonder.

Trump is aggressive to everyone including his own staff and supporters but not to Putin.

Imagine if N. Korea had sent the nuclear sabre rattling video; all the rocket-man tweets.
Something stinks here??

I believe the compromat allegations but not the collusion, as Bannon(?) said 'how can they be colluding with Russia? they aren't organised enough to collude with the state department"

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Gary D. Cohn, President Trump’s top economic adviser, plans to resign, becoming the latest in a series of high-profile departures from the Trump administration, White House officials said on Tuesday.

His decision to leave came after he seemed poised to lose an internal struggle amid a Wild West-style process over Mr. Trump’s plan to impose large tariffs on steel and aluminum imports.

Looks like the tariffs will really happen!
Meanwhile the White House revolving door revolves ever faster!

But is anybody going into the white house through these doors??
Serious question. Have they all be replaced?
Does anybody want to do those jobs anymore at all?

Trump claims "everyone wants to work in the White House".

Reality is that many people had their reputations destroyed or damaged in the White House plus the ever present risk of getting dragged into one of the probes and having to pay enormous legal bills.
It was reported ex-General Flynn is having to sell his house to pay his legal bills.

Quote:
The Trump White House has had more [senior] first-year departures than any other president in at least 40 years
Source

Of the 630 key jobs filled by presidential nomination about 240 of them right now have no nominee. Another 140 of those jobs have nominees, but they’re waiting to be confirmed. So more than half of key positions right now are unfilled.
Source

Usually working in the White House is seen as a good career step opening top opportunities in private business but so far ex WH people are not reported to have such success. One complication is private business normally likes ex WH people to give them an insight into the President's thinking and plans but Donnie himself has no clue what he will do next.

Quote:
"Many mid- and low-level" White House staffers are ready to leave the Trump administration, but are increasingly being shunned from the prestigious post-White House gigs offered to their predecessors
Source

Meanwhile Porn star Stormy Daniels who claims to have had an affair with President Trump, filed a suit against him on Monday, NBC News reports.

The suit reportedly claims the non-disclosure agreement she signed days before the 2016 presidential election is invalid because, while it included a line for Trump's signature, he never signed it.

Source

Just one out of the many Trump scandals would have destroyed any previous President; amazing how Donny survives untouched.

I can't believe he has time and the will to watch the Oscars. There's a million better things to do.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

US stocks were creeping up as people believed the Trump trade tariffs would likely not happen.
Now Gary D. Cohn has resigned the current assumption is that the Trump tariffs will happen and so US stock futures have crashed down; Dow now over 300 points.

It is a very volatile situation and so little events will cause huge swings in the Dow, up or down. Good time to make (or lose) a lot of money.

Who really thinks that Kushner's clearance (or lack of it) means anything to Trump? As the president, he can declassify anything he wants just by opening his mouth. He can leave Kushner in his job, with his secret clearance, and still share top secret stuff if he wants.
