Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

I'm just watching this, it's horrifying yet hard to look away. Nice guys Spanky is chums with.

Trump Says China Soybean Purchase Is a ‘Fantastic Sign of Faith’
China is expected to purchase 5 million metric tons of U.S. soybeans, Trump said. That would be on top of the estimated 5 million bought in the weeks after Trump met with his counterpart Xi Jinping in December in Argentina.
Source

So far nobody involved in the US/China trade deal discussions has actually confirmed this! Surely Spanky did not invent this sale.

If they do come to an agreement then it is difficult to imagine it will comply with WTO rules so both US and China could face future punitive reactions from the WTO.

Donald J. Trump@realDonaldTrump

Just concluded a great meeting with my Intel team in the Oval Office who told me that what they said on Tuesday at the Senate Hearing was mischaracterized by the media - and we are very much in agreement on Iran, ISIS, North Korea, etc.
Their testimony was distorted press.
I would suggest you read the COMPLETE testimony from Tuesday.
A false narrative is so bad for our Country. I value our intelligence community. Happily, we had a very good meeting, and we are all on the same page!
Spanky really does live in a different world constructed from his lies.

The Senate hearing was televised live so there is no dispute about what was said. There is no necessity to read their testimony.

What does he mean by "Their testimony was distorted press."?

He could drop-kick a basket of kittens off the steps of the White House and his fan club would vote for him, though.

"Sign of Faith" is a low budget Chinese film about the life of a commodities trader who sees the face of jesus in some spilled Soy Beans, I guess it was on late night cable recently.

They way to get Trump to act reasonable seems to be by producing a movie which will influence his actions.
So, Hollywood, get to it and start running the country. (Can't get much worse, right?)

Hollywood should made this actor president: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0874339/


20 productions, acting in 22 movies and 2 Primetime Emmy nominations.

I did not propose Hollywood should present the president.
As Trump seems to mix up movies he's seen with reality, making him watch the "right" movies might improve his performance.

He actually reminds me of President Henson, so I suppose he should watch Hot Shots

Trump spreading news that casts doubts on the need for a Wall.

Donald J. Trump@realDonaldTrump

Our great U.S. Border Patrol Agents made the biggest Fentanyl bust in our Country’s history. Thanks, as always, for a job well done!

Customs officers make largest fentanyl seizure ever at Arizona commercial border crossing.
254 pounds of fentanyl hidden inside an 18-wheeler carrying cucumbers plus officers also seized 395 pounds of methamphetamine hidden inside the compartment in the 18-wheeler.

Makes sense, why run across a dangerous part of the border with a hand bag of drugs when you can load a third of a ton onto a truck?

Trump is good at tactical moves but they often do not fit together into a consistent strategy!

Will they still sell the cucumbers? At what price?

Looks legit. Putin can't let Trump look like he's got the upper hand on anything.
Reported also on ABC (USA) and Reuters

I am sure Putin is very happy he can develop and build new nuclear devices without worrying about treaties blocking him!

Yup, and thanks to Spanky he can say he didn't start it. Like an old school ground fight.
