Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

So far only one tweet about the bomb terror attacks on Democrats and seven about the latest caravan with claims without evidence it was paid for by the Dems, contains criminals and Middle Easterners.

Meanwhile it seems the Chinese are prepared to wait out Trump's trade war which is not good news for a man who likes quick results or for those US farmers and businesses who are financially hit.

"Larry Kudlow, director of the President's National Economic Council said the other day: "We gave them a detailed list of asks, regarding technology for example, (which) basically hasn't changed for five or six months.
The problem with the story is that they don't respond. Nothing. Nada.
It's really the President and the Chinese Communist party, they have to make a decision and so far they have not, or they have made a decision not to do anything, nothing.
I've never seen anything like it."

Also today the US Gross Domestic Product, 3rd quarter 2018 (advance estimate) will be released; previous quarter it was 4.2% and Trump claimed next quarter will be better. However most forecasts are around 2.9% so there is keen interest in the actual number.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Trump critics Booker and Clapper targeted by suspicious mail

Whoever is sending these parcels must have bought a job lot of identical American flag stamps. Wonder if someone's going to remember a customer asking for them or if an online order for them will be traced.

Just had a look at the US postal service's stamps page, and the design of stamps used on the packages doesn't seem to feature. It does, however, feature on two items in the "patriotic" section of their collectors' zone and it looks as if stamps with that flag motif were issued in 2017.

Maybe the police will get lucky and find that someone with a record licked them!

Arrest made in connection to suspicious packages

Quote:
Federal authorities have arrested a man in connection to the suspected explosive packages discovered this week, the Justice Department announced Friday.

Multiple law enforcement sources told CNN the suspect is a man in his 50s with an Aventura, Florida, address, and was arrested at a business in Plantation, about 20 miles away in South Florida. He has a criminal history and has ties to New York, the officials said. Additional details, such as his name, were not immediately released.

Under the pretext of freedom of speech and "telling things as they are" or "as I see them, my right, my right, my right", Trump went a few steps further and landed on the hate speech territory. This is what happens when certain individuals feel "empowered".

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Tump....

Quote:
Speaking at the White House Friday afternoon, President Donald Trump congratulated law enforcement on the arrest and denounced what he called "terrorizing acts." He also called for unity: "peace and love and harmony as fellow Americans."


His remarks came after he has blamed the media this week for rising "anger" in the country while refusing to acknowledge his own role in contributing to divisive rhetoric in the public discourse.
"We must never allow political violence to take root in America," Trump said at one point. "I'm committed to doing everything in my power as President to stop it."
As the situation initially unfolded mid-morning -- before the arrest was announced -- the President complained on Twitter that the news media was busy reporting on "'Bomb' stuff" and not politics.
"Republicans are doing so well in early voting, and at the polls, and now this 'Bomb' stuff happens and the momentum greatly slows - news not talking politics. Very unfortunate, what is going on. Republicans, go out and vote!" Trump tweeted.

The basic problem is that Trump does not see himself as the US President with the role to unite the country against foreign influence.
Great example here "the President complained on Twitter that the news media was busy reporting on "'Bomb' stuff" and not politics."

He sees everything from a political point of view in personal terms of "will this bring me more votes or less votes".

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Quote:
Former President Obama says that if Republicans were truly concerned about the security risks posed by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's private email server, "they'd be up in arms" over reports that President Trump is still using unsecured iPhones.

“In the last election it was Hillary’s emails. ‘This is terrible.’ ‘Hilary’s emails!’ We were hearing Hillary’s emails everywhere,” Obama said Friday at a campaign rally in Milwaukee.

"They didn't care about emails. And you know how you know? Because if they did, they'd be up in arms right now as the Chinese are listening to the president's iPhone that he leaves in his golf cart,” he continued. “It turns out, I guess it wasn't that important.”
Source

There was never any proof that classified Hillary’s emails were read by foreign powers but it seems that Trump's phone calls are widely available!

Cesar Sayoc-Trump could not wish for a better ambassador for his cause. He will definitely get pardoned by Trump!

Of course, and those who don't approve of his ways are worth of nothing but contempt.

I think he very much sees his role as fighting against foreign influence

Well dont forget this accused bomber is innocent until proven guilty. But of course the Trump followers are delusional like Trump.
I'm sure they all think the holocaust was a hoax. That is if they even know what the holocaust was!

“I bet $500 they are lying,” he said. “I bet it was a liberal who did it. Have you stopped to think why those bombs were only sent to high-level Democrats? They are trying to make it look like Donald Trump is encouraging terrorism.”
He added: “The truth is, the liberals are the terrorists.”
His wife agreed.
“It seems like a lot’s been planted to make it look like a Trump supporter did it,” said Carrie Pennington, 48.
Gibber, this is just batshit crazy, and we wonder how Spanky got in. Good luck believing this one Spanky fans, it's a doozie.

I heard Cesar Sayoc believes he himself is a liberal plot funded by George Soros.
