44. There have been 44 US presidents.
Donald Trump was inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States at noon EST on January 20, 2017, succeeding Barack Obama, 44 other (than Trump) Presidents I agree..

Not quite in her husband's league, though, was she? After all, he's worth more than TEN BILLION DOLLARS!!!

Nope, Trump is the 44th man to occupy that office.

Correct. Grover Cleveland was the 22nd and 24th. One dude, two non-consecutive terms.

He could go bankrupt anytime, and then she'd have to pay him!

If you choose to believe all those internet stories about dodgy German, Chinese and Russian bank loans then he is already bankrupt, maybe Kushner too

Hard to go bankrupt from where he stands though....I think she'll be safe.

I think most people feel sorry for Melania. Whatever her privileges, allowance or whatever perks she has, the humiliation must be awful for her. I'm guessing there is a reasonable amount of truth in the rumours (signed NDAs don't really point to innocence, rather damage limitation) and she knows it.
Don't. What humiliation? She's got a tacky, older husband like many other women out there. At least hers is rich.

You mean Jerry Hall is humiliated too? Yuck...having a shuddering attack at the thought of her husband. If she's a gold digger "she deserves all those money"....

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Is there any evidence that Spanky is worth 10Bn? my understanding is he's the only one saying so. I believe the Kushners are much richer, which must really get on Spanky's nerves.

Dr. Ronny Jackson, the presidential physician who has served under three presidents, has been nominated for a promotion.

The Pentagon announced on Friday that President Donald Trump nominated Jackson to the position of rear admiral (upper half) from his current position of rear admiral (lower half).

The nomination, which secretary of defense Jim Mattis announced, would give Jackson his second star and a bump in pay.

Jackson gained notoriety earlier this year when he briefed reporters on Trump's first physical exam, touting the commander in chief's "incredible genes" and overall "excellent" health.
Now Trump has fired the VA head Shulkin and given the job to his doctor Jackson

Quote:
Donald J. Trump@realDonald

I am pleased to announce that I intend to nominate highly respected Admiral Ronny L. Jackson, MD, as the new Secretary of Veterans Affairs....
Edit; VA nominee Jackson - who has been the doctor for both Presidents Trump and Obama - has no management experience.
The VA is a sprawling agency with some 375,000 employees and a budget (2017) of $180 billion

Yup, another "inspired" choice. I can't believe his Education Secretary, Betsy Whatsit, is still there. Surely someone has to notice that she's totally incompetent, too?

The only person who believes the $10 billion valuation is Spanky McBonespurs himself. You did notice my eyeroll emoji, didn't you?

I bet she's regretting now whatever pre-nup she undoubtedly signed. Although right now would be a pretty good time to force through some renegotiations. And wouldn't Trump be proud to be the first sitting President to divorce! "Obama couldn't manage a divorce while he was in the Summer White House... still hasn't, I bet he can't, he's weak, sad..."
She definitley doesn't give a happy impression, at all, so yes. As for having bargaining leverage, proabbly no since a threat doesn't work unless your opponent agrees to its validity (certainly you remember DT saying he could kill someone without losing his voters, or something to that end). And perhaps she'd lose parental and custody rights on Barron as all Trump children appear to have remained with their father, so he's probably taken precautionary measures.

Which actually means that there are 43 Trump could "beat".

Amounts to the same I'd say, I just find the amended phrasing better. I think I wrote that there were 43 before him, with the implication that's how many he would beat.

According to the media, the various Veteran groups are not excited by Trump picking his doctor to run the VA but are relieved he did not pick someone worse.
Strange times we live in.

Meanwhile Trump's legal battles hot up with developments in sex, money and Russia.

His personal legal team leader John Dowd resigned a week ago and no firm replacement announced yet; Trump needs to strengthen his team not just replace Dowd due to the new law suits popping up.

There is a strong possibility that any new team member will be fired sooner or later with a damaged or weakened reputation. There is now a storm about allegations Dowd was discussing pardons for former Trump team members. Dutch attorney Alex van der Zwaan's indictment by Mueller's Special Counsel team is also not a motivation factor to join Trump's team.

The only time I've seen that woman look really happy and properly laughing, is when she was at the opening ceremony of the Invictus Games alongside Prince Harry.
