All I could find were references to replacement fencing being put up, which had already been agreed upon and funding secured .
Of course, if a new wall was being built there would have to have been an official Government procurement process which would be well publicised with open bidding, winners announced, &&&&......

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

US only added 20,000 jobs in February versus over 300,000 in February last year.

We should not draw conclusions from only one months numbers but it maybe that the US is now approaching full employment so numbers will not increase much in the future.

In Trump's alternative universe


"Wall is being built "? Where, locations, photos?
"Ahead of schedule" What schedule?

This circus is turning into a pantomime!

Yes. California, Texas, New Mexico No photos but I found some videos.







Yes, some of these walls are replacing fencing that was put up under Obama or even earlier. Which is what Trump promised, to replace these useless structures with a proper wall. Some construction is happening in areas were no other structures existed. Most construction is happening where there happens to be the most crossings like around San Diego, El Paso etc. So at least they are building what they can in areas that will have the highest impact. Unlike some of Obamas fencing out in the middle of freaking nowhere.

and yet you didn't google it.




EPIC FAIL.

Your right. It seems this info, especially concerning children, is difficult to find in a nice chart. My original source concerning the FBI stats was revisited and I found it to not be reliable. I apologize. That said, there has been a huge upswing in states like California and Texas and some high profile people are getting arrested so there is some truth to it. The owner of the New England Patriots was just arrested the other day when he visited a "day spa" that was under investigation for possible trafficking.

Convictions:8

do the math.
Out of all convicted and sentenced by courts as a result of Muller 'brilliance' only two are serving any significant time in jail. The rest were such a minor offenders (entrapped by Muller's process-crimes) that they received from no time at all to 14 days in jail and one received 6 months.
Muller's investigation so far has been disgrace, travesty of judicial process.
One of the corner stones of judicial system is the notion that you cannot start open ended investigations into everyone without first an evidence of the crime committed.
Otherwise we all would have been in jail long time ago for various statements we have made or events we recalled incorrectly.

What is pathetic and dangerous is how segments of society cheering this travesty on.

If FBI wanted to investigate Russian interference in 2016 elections they would have released very little to the public while investigating and devising counter-intelligence operations against Russia.
Instead, they splashed embarrassing information about ineptitude of FBI and CIA to thwart or foresee such attacks. By all this unnecessary & premature disclosure they made US look like a banana republic whose electorate are sheep easily manipulated by Russian intelligence services adding to the clout, success and satisfaction of KGB operation.
Now they are fumbling to find any real evidence of something they have been claiming took place and instead present the public with unrelated cases of tax evasion and taxi licenses fraud.
The results of this investigation are pathetic and largely play into the hands of US adversaries.
No wonder many call it a political hatchet job in the best fashion of Edgar G Hoover.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

As 2019 is still young...(is it? well, it is for me) let's recapitulate Trump's accomplishment in 2018


Quote:
In his second year in office, President Trump did many positive things, and on Monday, I offered my list of the 10 best things Trump did in 2018. But he also did a lot of bad things that ranged from cringeworthy to catastrophic. Here are the 10 worst:

10. His comment about “sh--hole” countries blew up negotiations for a deal that would have given Trump his border wall. Nearly a year ago, the president made a bold offer to Democrats — putting not just legal status but also a path to citizenship for nearly 1.8 million young illegal immigrants on the table. Then his abhorrent comment undermined Democrats who were serious about cutting a deal and gave those who were not a pretext to walk away.

9. His offensive tweets continued to undermine his presidency. Calling former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman “a dog” and Stormy Daniels “Horseface” — among countless offensive tweets — is not just unpresidential, it drives away potential supporters who like his policies but then are reminded how much they don’t like Trump.


8. His misuse of power turned critics into martyrs. Revoking former CIA director John Brennan’s security clearance and CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta’s White House press pass turned partisan critics who were embarrassing themselves into victims — and gave them an even greater platform from which to attack him.

7. He drove away suburban voters and caused the GOP to lose control of the House. That’s because the president has sought to energize his base in ways that drive those voters away. If he wants to win reelection, Trump needs to bring suburban Republican voters back into the GOP fold.

6. His graceless handling of Sen. John McCain’s funeral was a new low. Trump didn’t like McCain, but when you’re the president, sometimes you must honor people you didn’t like. McCain was an American hero. Trump’s inability to muster a kind or generous word reflected poorly on the president.

John McCain and Trump: A history

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and President Trump have been at odds with each other for a while. Here's a look at their war of words. (Jenny Starrs/The Washington Post)
5. His handling of Jamal Khashoggi’s murder harmed America’s moral standing. Trump is right that a permanent breach with Saudi Arabia is not acceptable, because there is no other country in the Middle East that can serve as a counterweight to Iran. But it was unseemly to declare that “It’s all about ‘America First’ ” and “We’re not going to give up hundreds of billions of dollars in orders.”


4. His news conference with Vladimir Putin in Helsinki was an embarrassment. His meeting with the Russian president came on the heels of Russia’s attempted assassination of a dissident on British soil using banned chemical weapons and the indictment of 12 Russians for 2016 election meddling. Instead of condemning these actions, Trump publicly sided with Putin over his own intelligence community.

3. His policy to separate migrant children from their families at the southern border was an avoidable tragedy. There is nothing wrong with a zero-tolerance policy for illegal crossings. But his administration’s failure to anticipate and prepare for how to deal with migrant families was gross negligence — a symptom of the chaos that is undermining his presidency.

2. His planned withdrawal of U.S. forces from Afghanistan is a gift to the Taliban and al-Qaeda. In 2017, my Top 10 Best list praised Trump for reversing President Barack Obama’s disastrous withdrawal, which he said “would create a vacuum for terrorists.” But in December, Trump ordered the military to start planning the withdrawal of roughly 7,000 troops — about half the number of U.S. forces in Afghanistan. The news came just as U.S. officials were holding talks with the Taliban whose No. 1 demand is . . . the withdrawal of U.S. forces. Hardly the “art of the deal.”


1. His pullout of all U.S. troops in Syria will take America’s boot off of the terrorists’ necks. Trump’s claim that “we have defeated ISIS in Syria” is as bad as Obama’s dismissing them as the “J.V.” squad. The Islamic State still has up to 30,000 fighters in Iraq and Syria and about $400 million in their coffers. The Islamic State is not defeated, and not one member of Trump’s national security team agrees with his decision to withdraw. If he lets the Islamic State off the mat like Obama did in Iraq in 2011, our nation will pay a terrible price.

Days before Trump announces victory over ISIS, officials were preparing for a long engagement

The Trump administration is planning to withdraw all U.S. troops from Syria immediately. The president tweeted Dec. 19 that the U.S. had defeated ISIS in Syria. (Jason Aldag/The Washington Post)
It is notable that, with the exception of troop withdrawals and family separations, most of the items on this list were transgressions of style rather than substance. With the mute button on, the Trump presidency is pretty good from a conservative policy perspective. And yet Trump’s approval rating at year’s end is just 39 percent — because most Americans don’t follow politics with the sound off.

And now according to satellite photos the N. Koreans have rebuilt their missile launch site that they closed before the first summit.

A direct result of Trump attending the second summit without any pre-conditions, without any detailed preparation and without his staff negotiating a preliminary agreement; he just assumed he could wing it!

Dumping means competitors are selling products at very low prices.
So you introduce tariffs on imports to force prices up and so protect jobs at local suppliers.
Trump is claiming his tariffs cut prices and this generates jobs

In his second year in office, President Trump did many positive things, and on Monday, I offered my list of the 10 best things Trump did in 2018. But he also did a lot of bad things that ranged from cringeworthy to catastrophic. Here are the 10 worst:

10. His comment about “sh--hole” countries blew up negotiations for a deal that would have given Trump his border wall. Nearly a year ago, the president made a bold offer to Democrats — putting not just legal status but also a path to citizenship for nearly 1.8 million young illegal immigrants on the table. Then his abhorrent comment undermined Democrats who were serious about cutting a deal and gave those who were not a pretext to walk away.
Is this Trump's fault that Democrats rejected a good deal to help the people they claim to care about over a tweet? Nope, it is a false narrative (if I was Dem. I would request a retraction) as it paints Dem. party not as serious law makers but a bunch of infantile idiots.

9. His offensive tweets continued to undermine his presidency. Calling former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman “a dog” and Stormy Daniels “Horseface” — among countless offensive tweets — is not just unpresidential, it drives away potential supporters who like his policies but then are reminded how much they don’t like Trump.
There is truth to this, but I am afraid the same voters are going to hold their noses and vote for him again in 2020.

8. His misuse of power turned critics into martyrs. Revoking former CIA director John Brennan’s security clearance and CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta’s White House press pass turned partisan critics who were embarrassing themselves into victims — and gave them an even greater platform from which to attack him.
Not really, have you heard from either of those men lately? They have been gone from public arena. I hope they work on revoking more clearances and finally permanently cancel that troll's press pass. His constant shouting over everyone at WH press conf. must be stopped. I am sure CNN has a warm chair ready for him to continue trolling from there

7. He drove away suburban voters and caused the GOP to lose control of the House. That’s because the president has sought to energize his base in ways that drive those voters away. If he wants to win reelection, Trump needs to bring suburban Republican voters back into the GOP fold.
False narrative. Party that controls both houses and presidency always looses one of the houses in mid term elections. This loss was expected and predictable before Trump or any REP. took an oath of office. So this is another convenient media lie.
6. His graceless handling of Sen. John McCain’s funeral was a new low. Trump didn’t like McCain, but when you’re the president, sometimes you must honor people you didn’t like. McCain was an American hero. Trump’s inability to muster a kind or generous word reflected poorly on the president.
Nonsense. Barring sitting president from state funeral by McCain and his family was a slap in the face to Trump. So they should not expect Trump to shower Song-bird McCain with usual rehearsed accolades. McCain is not an American hero. He is a victim of circumstances who used his misfortune to climb into political zeitgeist by creating a lie about his conduct in Vietnam...
John McCain and Trump: A history

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and President Trump have been at odds with each other for a while. Here's a look at their war of words. (Jenny Starrs/The Washington Post)
5. His handling of Jamal Khashoggi’s murder harmed America’s moral standing. Trump is right that a permanent breach with Saudi Arabia is not acceptable, because there is no other country in the Middle East that can serve as a counterweight to Iran. But it was unseemly to declare that “It’s all about ‘America First’ ” and “We’re not going to give up hundreds of billions of dollars in orders.”
100% agree. He should have been crucified by the opposition for this. As I expected, the Left is sucking the same tit, so they did nothing.

4. His news conference with Vladimir Putin in Helsinki was an embarrassment. His meeting with the Russian president came on the heels of Russia’s attempted assassination of a dissident on British soil using banned chemical weapons and the indictment of 12 Russians for 2016 election meddling. Instead of condemning these actions, Trump publicly sided with Putin over his own intelligence community.
He did ? I must have missed where he sided with Putin. The real reason the Left is outraged about this meeting and still cries about it is that they wanted to derail Trump's political theater and force him to cancel the visit. They used Muller to issue indictment right before the summit in Helsinki to force Trump's hand. To which Trump replied with F-YOU, I am still going to meet. Rightfully so.
3. His policy to separate migrant children from their families at the southern border was an avoidable tragedy. There is nothing wrong with a zero-tolerance policy for illegal crossings. But his administration’s failure to anticipate and prepare for how to deal with migrant families was gross negligence — a symptom of the chaos that is undermining his presidency.
How can administration anticipate crisis on the border and prepare for it, while the opposition calling it a manufactured crisis and blocks funding? Rehearsed outrage about children separation is a pathetic ploy to score political pity points, nothing more. If you commit an arrestable offense your children will not go to jail with you, but they will be separated from you, sometimes permanently. WTF?
2. His planned withdrawal of U.S. forces from Afghanistan is a gift to the Taliban and al-Qaeda. In 2017, my Top 10 Best list praised Trump for reversing President Barack Obama’s disastrous withdrawal, which he said “would create a vacuum for terrorists.” But in December, Trump ordered the military to start planning the withdrawal of roughly 7,000 troops — about half the number of U.S. forces in Afghanistan. The news came just as U.S. officials were holding talks with the Taliban whose No. 1 demand is . . . the withdrawal of U.S. forces. Hardly the “art of the deal.”
This is the most imbecilic point of the whole tirade. The fact that US is negotiating with Taliban means that the US have already lost Afghanistan. On a spectrum of moronic neocon. ideas this one is as infantile as no-fly zone in Syria.

1. His pullout of all U.S. troops in Syria will take America’s boot off of the terrorists’ necks. Trump’s claim that “we have defeated ISIS in Syria” is as bad as Obama’s dismissing them as the “J.V.” squad. The Islamic State still has up to 30,000 fighters in Iraq and Syria and about $400 million in their coffers. The Islamic State is not defeated, and not one member of Trump’s national security team agrees with his decision to withdraw. If he lets the Islamic State off the mat like Obama did in Iraq in 2011, our nation will pay a terrible price.
US should have never undermined Assad and should have never trained and armed terrorists in Syria. All US has gained is another defeat in the ME and possibly another large terrorist attack down the road.
Days before Trump announces victory over ISIS, officials were preparing for a long engagement

The Trump administration is planning to withdraw all U.S. troops from Syria immediately. The president tweeted Dec. 19 that the U.S. had defeated ISIS in Syria. (Jason Aldag/The Washington Post)
I hope he really does this and let the real leaders like Macron and Merkel to deal with that 3rd World shithole called ME.
It is notable that, with the exception of troop withdrawals and family separations, most of the items on this list were transgressions of style rather than substance. With the mute button on, the Trump presidency is pretty good from a conservative policy perspective. And yet Trump’s approval rating at year’s end is just 39 percent — because most Americans don’t follow politics with the sound off.
Who gives a rat's ass about polls? What matters is what economy does in 2020.

I think even him knows he has no chances of winning the elections again. He could have pulled a "Dubya" if he was younger and more charismatic, but as he has the charm of an orange city tour bus....I doubt.

It's interesting that you think that media is at fault for this criticism yet all his supporters seem to have their own conservative sources and that means that at least a part of the media is doing a very good job in supporting Trump. Not enough to propel him into the second mandate apparently.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Talking about the US economy, the US stock markets had a great start to the year rising around 11% in the first two months. But strangely they have steadily slid down every day this month to a cumulative fall of around 2%, quite why is not clear. Probably due to worries that the deal with China is not looking so good as Trump claims.

He often claimed he would drive the GDP to over 4% but last quarter was under 3% and now the GDP forecasts are all pointing down.

Last months job increase was very low at 20,000; lowest since Sept 2017 but that low was claimed to be due to two hurricanes.

Oh, this is such a typical response from our conservative EF users. I guess the green blobs you've got from one of our mods and a few other similarly spirited farts on the forum gave you the courage to be so aggressive. Yep, you really are a cupcake. Consider our discussion done.

(*An impressive accomplishment, given that Homo sapiens has only been around for 800,000 years, at most; but maybe our evolutionary ancestors engaged in proto-human trafficking, who knows...)

He'd probably have just been better keeping schtumm and letting it blow over but, no, Trump just has to go that extra mile to train a glaring spotlight on his toe-curling stupidity...

At a recent round table meeting of business executives, & long after formally introducing Tim Cook of Apple, I quickly referred to Tim + Apple as Tim/Apple as an easy way to save time & words. The Fake News was disparagingly all over this, & it became yet another bad Trump story!

...and going back on his previous claim that he said "Tim Cook Apple", but said "Cook" so quick that nobody noticed.

Not the first time apparently. Trump has also invented «Marillyn Lockheed».
