Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Roger Stone indicted. Arrested in an early morning raid, very big raid too seems quite heavy handed.


What will this mean for Spanky??? apart from needing a replacement for a soon to be broken phone.

Trump wins again!
Nobody from Obama's White House or Campaign was convicted while Trump's score is eight convictions plus a number of open indictments and likely ever more to come!

A.P. has just reported that the Russian Hoax Investigation has now cost our government over $17 million, and going up fast. No Collusion, except by the Democrats!

1:05 PM - 1 Jun 2018
Cost of this investigation is now reported to be $25 million and assets seized of $48 million; so profitable for the Govt.!

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

President Trump said Friday he will back a short-term funding bill to reopen the government that does not include funds to construct a wall along the southern border.

"I am very proud to announce today that we have reached a deal to end the shutdown and re-open the federal government," Trump said.

Source

So Trump has backed down!

Quote:
The president said he would sign a bill that would open the government for three weeks. In that period, he said, a bipartisan committee of House and Senate lawmakers will meet to develop a funding proposal for Homeland Security.
Maybe Trump has learnt shut downs do not provide a solution; on the other hand?

Very smart of Trump to reopen the government so that planning the wall can continue. There is no more time to waste.

Even Fox News are falling out of love with Trump!
Quote:
Fox News conservative commentator Ann Coulter ripped President Trump over the news that he has agreed to end the government shutdown by accepting a temporary funding bill without money for his border wall, saying that Trump is now a bigger wimp than former President George W. Bush.

Coulter posted on Twitter shortly after Trump made the public announcement in the Rose Garden of the White House on Friday.

Good news for George Herbert Walker Bush: As of today, he is no longer the biggest wimp ever to serve as President of the United States.

— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) January 25, 2019

Trump is very good at fast and strong reactions.

But he is outclassed by Pelosi who thinks several moves ahead.

In the televised Trump, Pelosi and Schumer meeting before Christmas Pelosi challenged Trump to have the House pass a Govt. funding Bill including money for the Wall.
She knew Trump could not ignore the challenge and would pressure the House to do this.
She also knew the Senate would not pass a matching Bill with wall funding so she surely hoped Trump would dig himself into this big hole frantically trying to show he was managing the wall funding; exactly as he did

In one paragraph of the published Stone's indictment "Mueller alleges that an unnamed individual gave instructions to a senior unnamed Trump campaign official to get in touch with Stone “about any additional releases and what other damaging information” WikiLeaks was holding about Clinton’s campaign.

After getting those orders, Stone allegedly told the Trump campaign “about potential future releases of damaging material” that WikiLeaks was holding."

So who is senior enough to give instructions to a senior Trump campaign official?
WikiLeaks is a foreign entity that was seeking to meddle in the presidential election who, allegedly, the Trump campaign was in touch with!

Steve Bannon is suspected to be this person.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

I hope they do find a bipartisan solution.

Nevertheless if I was a Federal employee or contractor with limited savings then I would be seriously looking for another non Federal job!

Trump wins again, highest disapproval level of any President after 2 years in office

BTW, I did some research on the poll that showed 50% of Latinos approved of Trump; they had only interviewed 154 Latinos so the results are too few to draw any general conclusion on Latino views.

So Pelosi is now up 2 - 0, wonder when will be the next rematch!

Nevermind Trump, it's interesting that the favorability of every Prez since JFK is steadily declining. The nation used to be more united and rallied around the leader. But it's been slowly getting split into two camps at war with each other...


...anyway, back to the regularly scheduled Trump bashing...

For anybody that thinks Trump has no conflicts of interest with his business

Howard Schultz doesn’t have the “guts” to run for President!
Watched him on @60Minutes last night and I agree with him that he is not the “smartest person.” Besides, America already has that!
I only hope that Starbucks is still paying me their rent in Trump Tower!
Did Trump really tweet America already has "not the “smartest person.” "

U.S. drops in global corruption perception index, it's not just Spanky's reputation that's tanking, he's dragging the U.S. down too.
