Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

The "failing" New York Times now has more subscribers than at any time in the newspaper's history.

The newspaper announced the milestone Thursday along with its third quarter earnings results. It now has 4 million total subscribers, with about 3 million of those subscribers receiving the digital only edition.

The company said operating profit rose to $41.4 million last quarter, compared to $31.8 million during the same period a year before.

They should be grateful to Trump who keeps promoting their name.

....In reality, a foreign leader has never had a child become a U.S. citizen through such a method, and were a foreign dignitary to have a child on U.S. soil, that child would not be granted U.S. citizenship under the Fourteenth Amendment according to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services...
In this debate I particularly love the apparent fact that the 2nd amendment is sacrosanct but the 14th apparently can be ignored at will.

Although I guess the courts might have something to say about that.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

You know when I see the rallys of Trump the supporters seem to be mostly fat and slobbish. Is that done on purpose so that many of the Gringos identify with them (and of course Trump) and vote for Trump?

Not sure I like your news. How many employees (=new Trump voters) does the New York Times have?

And Trump has much to thank media for. During the election cycle, the man got so much free coverage and and so many mentions, he hardly needed political advertising. Every fart was news. So it's a symbiotic relationship.

I was wondering that too.

Maybe it is the B side of diplomatic immunity?

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

She will need to start updating her CV

Quote:
Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said Friday that the majority of migrants who travel to the U.S. are victims of violence, as President Trump continues to slam the current migrant caravan traveling toward the U.S.'s southern border.

Nielsen, speaking at a Council of Foreign Relations event, said that the journey to the U.S. is “tremendously difficult and dangerous.”

“We have about 30 percent of women who take that journey are sexually abused, 17 percent of men,” she said. “Seventy percent of the migrants are victims of violence.”

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

TGIF, actually it is not funny, it is a bloody tragedy

Quote:
The Nigerian army on Friday justified its killing of rock-throwing protesters earlier this week by citing recent comments from President Trump.

The country's army, part of a military which has been widely criticized for human rights abuses, shared a clip of Trump's speech from Thursday, when he said rocks would be considered firearms if thrown by migrants near the U.S. border.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Hard to know where the truth lies!
Quote:
When the Trump administration first asked the Pentagon to send troops to the southern border, they wanted them to perform emergency law enforcement functions, CNN has learned.

The Pentagon said no.

On Thursday, Trump claimed the military is putting up thousands of tents to hold migrants, but officials said there are no plans as of now to build tents. Tents were never part of the formal request for assistance submitted by DHS and approved by Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis.

Not sure if this claim is true especially because of the variable spelling of Nobel; anyway I like the sentiment

Not being religious but praying - isn't that mocking?

No one knows. It’s down to turnout and suppression. Lots of turnout and identifying and beating back suppression.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Read this morning that he wants to abolish birthright citizenship of babies born on US soil from non citizens.

Is this true?

You're conflating immigration with illegal immigration.

The claim is true- the award winning scientists emmigrated to the US, legally, from the UK and from Finland.

None of them were border hopping illegal aliens, and no border hopping illegal alien has ever won a Nobel Prize..
