<<an EU official who was in the room during talks between Trump and the EU’s Jean-Claude Juncker.>>
Good, there was a witness in the meeting of two dizzy (for different reasons) people .
They spent most of the meeting discussing how to remove tarrifs on cognac and bourbon. The meeting ended when Juncker had to be carried out in a bigly American wheelbarrow. Amazing man that Jean Claude. We can really do bigly great things together.

Back to playing the ball ...

The Washington Post: “The government has seized more than 100 recordings that Cohen made of his conversations with people discussing matters that could relate to Trump and his businesses and with Trump himself talking.”
I can hardly wait ...

I suppose Trump can't be prosecuted if he's not of sound mind. So he's safe.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Early effects of the tariffs.
American companies Harley-Davidson, General Motors, Ford, Fiat Chrysler, General Electric and 3M have all warned that rising costs from tariffs will eat into their profits.

Even Whirlpool an early fan of Trump's tariffs, is getting squeezed by skyrocketing raw material prices.

Hasbro is moving some production of its toys out of China to avoid tariffs.
Honeywell and Restoration Hardware are shaking up their supply chains.
Coca-Cola is jacking up prices on customers to help pay for the tariffs on metals.

Whereas last week steel maker Nucor logged its best second-quarter in the company's history. Profit more than doubled thanks to a 17% increase in its average steel sale price.

Ironically the US companies are suffering mainly because US steel and aluminium manufacturers have seized the opportunity to jack up their prices. Trump should be ranting about this aggressive profiteering.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

For those of you who mindlessly cry "FAKE NEWS" at every story that exposes Trump's stupidity, hypocrisy or simple malfeasance, here's a small sampling of news stories branded by Trump as fake that have since been proven true.

Waste anyway since I can't be bothered to agree to cookies from the WP and probably won't see the article mentioned as one of the "free" articles I could read.

They're probably all MP3s. How do you listen to those backwards?

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Bromance definitely over!

Quote:
Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump's former personal attorney, claims that then-candidate Trump knew in advance about the June 2016 meeting in Trump Tower in which Russians were expected to offer his campaign dirt on Hillary Clinton, sources with knowledge tell CNN. Cohen is willing to make that assertion to special counsel Robert Mueller, the sources said.

Cohen's claim would contradict repeated denials by Trump, Donald Trump Jr., their lawyers and other administration officials who have said that the President knew nothing about the Trump Tower meeting until he was approached about it by The New York Times in July 2017.
Source

Cohen is in a position to do Trump a lot of damage!

Quote:
Giuliani attacks Cohen over Trump Tower report: He's a 'pathological liar'
Source

But then so is Trump so it kinda cancels out!

I was referring to this joke.


But actually, I take it you don't know how to listen to an MP3 backwards?
