According to Trump's own Govt. Dept the US has a trade surplus with Canada not a deficit, Don should shut up and enjoy

Don is in danger of killing a golden goose

Interesting to see how the Trump camp sees this. Regardless its amazing to see how Trump prefers cozying up to dictators and despots whilst burning bridges with his country's staunchest allies.

It's almost like he's not acting in the best interests of America, but at the behest of someone.

Who stands to benefit from the breakdown of relations within the G7, and the weakening of relations with Europe?

Hmm, it's a puzzler. AnsweЯs on a postcaЯd.

At this point in time, his core supporters have so robustly painted themselves into a corner they'd happily find excuses if he soiled himself on the steps of the White House.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Now, even Dennis Rodman is in Singapore.

"Self-invited", as the US-delegation stresses.

If this was a script for a comedy, Hollywood would have rejected it a couple of years back as "too absurd".

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

They all do this thumb-thing now - copying Macron? - and look at Trumps face. ROFL.

actually in acupressure that's the pancreas?

By the way, press there hard - you will find out, it hurts like hell and the pain lingers.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Or maybe not. The article, like you, picks on specific issues and tried to use that to draw a general conclusion. Fact is the US and EU import tariffs are actually pretty much identical at a weighted average of 1.6% according to the world bank

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

So, 4 vague points you could get on the back of a fag packet, which do not in any way expedite the agreement N&S Korea reached in April.

Good photo op for the two dictators though.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Wonder how long before the rose-tinted spectacles come off. Trump will want to bask in the adulation for a while but I bet this love-in is going to turn sour.

that is actually not too important. most important is that the two have met. whatever you think about it, it is a quite important milestone in post ww2 history.
