Degenerates?

Do you mean deplorables?
Jesus, both deplorable and degenerate. Takes me back to the bad old days of UK footy (probably still ongoing to some extent) where fans would have "witty" banners with stuff like "I'd rather be a Paki than a [insert rival club fan here]"

Wow. And to think that these countries are always playing the moral high ground card and impart "justice" right and left...

I think Hillary used the right word back then but truth hurts. Yes, it cost her.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Trump declares an emergency, says during the declaration 'I didn't need to do this' then flies off at taxpayers expense to play golf. Emergency? he literally doesn't know the meaning of the word, there's lots of words he doesn't know the meaning of but he makes salad with them anyway.

Yeah, she’s not right about everything, and she’s a bit green (pun intended), but her economic policies are more sound than anything we’ve seen from the White Old Republican Men (worm) contingent.

Here’s another word to describe many Trump voters - delusional.

I actually think that hysterical mud-slinging is something that doesn't fly, even in America, that's why it cost her. I really do not think that those who voted for Trumps were deplorables, but accept that you do, that it is your opinion.

Worst part of this was his 35 day Govt. shutdown where 800,000 people suffered without pay and many who are contractors will get no back pay. And this shutdown achieved nothing, nada, zilch. In fact, to add insult to injury his wall funding was cut from $1.6 B to $1.3 after the shutdown.

Hmmm.... well it seems that Trump engaged in it before and continues to do so. But “hysterics” are generally applied to women, so what is it with Trump? Frankness, I suppose. Yeah.....that’s it.

Whatever. I think Trump voters were less deplorable than delusional as I said before....but it’s clearly an opinion.

Deplorables or delusional...both express disdain. It is not the ideas of Trumps opponents that would justify his success. But because there is a lot of selfrighteous disdain towards him and his supporters. People just can't help themselves.

Trade negotiators have just returned from China where the meetings on Trade were very productive. Now at meetings with me at Mar-a-Lago giving the details.
In the meantime, Billions of Dollars are being paid to the United States by China in the form of Trade Tariffs!

1:17 AM - 17 Feb 2019
AMERICANS are the ones paying those tariffs. That's how tariffs work.
Now when buying things from China they pay an extra tax. Or when buying things made from things that come from China, they cost more.

If the trade talks are going so well how come there is not a whisper about the details from the leakiest White House ever?

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Quote:
Donald Trump has asked his European allies to “take back over 800” Islamic State fighters captured in Syria and put them on trial.

“The Caliphate is ready to fall,” the US president said in a tweet. “The alternative is not a good one in that we will be forced to release them ...”

It came as US-backed fighters in Syria were poised to capture Isis’s last, tiny enclave on the Euphrates, the battle commander said on Saturday, bringing its self-declared caliphate to the brink of total defeat.

Jiya Furat said the Syrian Democratic Forces had cornered the remaining militants in a neighbourhood of the village of Baghuz near the Iraqi border, under fire from all sides.

Quote:
On Friday the Guardian reported a co alition commander said Isis fighters had shot and wounded fleeing family members trying to escape from the area.


Foreign fighters and families have featured prominently among those who have fled Baghuz. The town had been a collection point for extremists who had fled other towns and villages across Syria and Iraq, and is thought to be the last redoubt of zealots who had fought in numerous clashes across both countries.

On Thursday Shamima Begum, 19, one of three east London schoolgirls who left the UK in 2015 to join Isis, was discovered in the al-Hawl refugee camp in north-east Syria after fleeing the enclave.


'Nothing left in Baghuz': Isis families flee as war enters endgame

Late on Saturday Trump tweeted: “The United States is asking Britain, France, Germany and other European allies to take back over 800 Isis fighters that we captured in Syria and put them on trial.”

“The US does not want to watch as these Isis fighters permeate Europe, which is where they are expected to go. We do so much, and spend so much – Time for others to step up and do the job that they are so capable of doing. We are pulling back after 100% Caliphate victory!”

Trump has said he will pull US forces from Syria after Isis’s territorial defeat, raising questions over the fate of Washington’s Kurdish allies and Turkish involvement in north-east Syria.

Haha time for others to step up! And some people were bs ing about privileged partnerships, deals etc

It's the first time when I couldn't agree more with Donald Trump.


Unfortunately, those fighters won't stay where they belong once they reach their homelands... I'm 99% sure of that.

The Obama led coalition of 3 December 2014 (sixty countries) that styled itself as the Global Coalition to Counter the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) did already step up and have their military forces involved.
Typical attempt by Spanky to claim only the US are there and fail to thank his allies!

Some specifics;
France (Opération Chammal)
Germany (Operation Counter Daesh)
United Kingdom (Operation Shader)

The allies also suffered more retaliation than the US; on 14 November 2015, ISIL claimed that the attacks that took place in Paris the previous day were retaliation for Opération Chammal.

Well, we're all past expecting other countries to acknowledge our merits or contributions, aren't we? We're living in a new era, courtesy is rare. Very rare. Let's leave our expectations aside for a sec. If you think more of it, Europe could afford spending less on defense because well.. the USA spend more. There are some requirements they have made lately and frankly I find them quite fair.
