Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Did you watch Question Time last night - Will Self told the public that comparing Farage and Trump to Hitler was a bit silly as neither had the stature or intelligence, and were just 'grabby (grubby? - both, I'd say) little opportunists.

You've got to love DM.....

Donald Trump's mother WAS an immigrant chasing the American dream: Documents reveal penniless Scot purposely traveled to America for better life rather than overstaying vacation as the tycoon claims
Donald Trump's mother Mary Anne née Macleod did not travel to America 'on holiday' as he has often said
Immigration documents reveal she intended to emigrate permanently to the USA
Left abject poverty in desolate Scottish Isle of Lewis seeking a better life
Arrived in New York in 1930 with $50 to her name with the intention of working as a domestic
Married Trump's father Fred, already a successful businessman, in 1936

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Quote:
Fears of retaliation rose within US intelligence agencies over a tense weekend that saw Trump publicly dismiss not only the assessment [Russian election interference] but the basic competence of the intelligence apparatus.

“When the president-elect’s transition team is attempting to discredit the entire intelligence community, it has never been more important for the community and Congress to guard against possible political pressure or retaliation against intelligence analysts,”

His transition team said in a statement: “These are the same people who said Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction.”

It is all like watching a very bad "B" film except we are not watching it; we are living it.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Funny that a country that has spent billions and killed hundreds of thousands implementing regime changes around the world is worried that Russia hacked some emails and put out some social media posts in order to influence an election.

At that, a country whose movies, shows, music and other cultural exports (which were 99% fake) is suddenly concerned when somebody else imitates their game and spreads some fake stories.

Yeah, I'm sure they never saw that one coming.

Apparently an old lady won the election but she didn't get enough electoral colleges so now an ugly evil frog is going to president, even though nobody voted for him (deplorables don't count)

Have I missed something?

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Serious questions for our American members.

Do you rate NBC and CNN news as badly as the PE does, according to his latest Twitter feed?

With the PE giving exclusive interviews to Fox News, is it fair that he shows a blatant preference for a news organisation run by his old buddy, Murdoch?

I don't watch NBC or Fox news, and only occasionally watch CNN.

There won't be a war. At the end of the day the USA remains the worlds only superpower. China will just moan about it without actually doing anything other than the odd cyber attack.
There won't be a war as in if China attacks Taiwan, the US will not get involved? Or you think that China will not attack Taiwan on the basis that the US will defend Taiwan even though Trump has made noises about countries defending themselves and free-riding on the US?

In the FT:

Quote:
“I don’t know why we have to be bound by the One China policy unless we make a deal with China on other things,” the president-elect said.

The Global Times warned of severe consequences if the incoming US administration dispensed with the one China policy. In that case, the paper asked, “why should the Chinese government prioritise ‘peaceful reunification’ [with Taiwan] over ‘reunification by force’?”
https://www.ft.com/content/84f74bd2-...a-2b93a6856354

It seems that politicians in Taiwan are getting nervous: having taken Trump's words at face value they are considering the possibility that rather than really caring about freedom and democracy, it is more likely that he's using Taiwan just as a bargaining chip and will not stand behind them in any meaningful way.
