As US President he should be saying something much, much stronger like " I will do everything in my power to ensure the planes are fully tested and safe to fly on before people are allowed to fly on them again"

But he won't, because he is into quick fixes like changing the name.

Anyway the name that is damaged is "Boeing"!

Finally, last word goes to George

No, he is a communicator type and understands that with the escalated publicity, nobody would enter that plane again.

Typical Trump revenge syndrome!!

It is claimed Government lawyers already indicated that such a process would not conform to US law.

Anyway lucky the "Sanctuary Cities" are not smart enough to consider hiring buses to distribute the Immigrants elsewhere.
Might be a good time to buy shares in bus companies while the cities of different political flavours ship the immigrants to and fro!
If they were smart they would ship them all down to Mar El Lago!

Best tweet reply so far; "He does realize that once the immigrants are in sanctuary cities it’ll be much harder for ICE to kick them out, right?"

I am going to give Trump some credit here because not only is he trolling the democrats but he is also exposing their hipocracy. In other words he is playing them like a fiddle and its hilarious.

Dems- "we love immigrants, tear down the wall, its racist"
Trump- "fine, you can have them, I'll pay for the buses"
Dems- "ohh, umm, well, umm, we dont like them THAT much"

Nancy Pelosi's wall just got a few feet higher.

Lol.

Also exposing Trump's own hypocrisy!

If he puts illegal immigrants in the sanctuary cities where they are relatively safe from deportation then it will encourage more of them to travel to the US; is this what Trump really wants?

Anyway it seems to have back fired!
  • Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney: “The city would be prepared to welcome these immigrants."
  • Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel: “As a welcoming city, we would welcome these migrants with open arms, "
  • Mayor Marc McGovern of Cambridge, Massachusetts: “I am proud that Cambridge is a sanctuary city and if asylum seekers find their way to Cambridge, we’ll welcome them.”
  • New York Mayor Bill de Blasio: “New York City will always be the ultimate city of immigrants – the President’s empty threats won’t change that.”
  • Mayor Steven Hernandez of Coachella, California: “We have already been working alongside partners to ensure that recently arrived families, women and children get the services they need to make their successful transition into America."

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Yeah, exactly. Immigrants in sanctuary cities would delight lots of the mayors and people are ready to help. It would help to shape demographic shifts (younger, more diverse) .

And once the immigrants get there, what’s to stop them from moving elsewhere.

It’s a typical Trump idea.

Yes they did say that actually. Many, many, many times over and over again. Ad nauseam. (Are you living under a rock?)

And proving Trump to be a hypocrite is the lowest hanging fruit on the tree. Whats funny is watching them sink to his level and him beating them at his own game. Its unfortunate, but funny. Hopefully people will realise there is room for more political parties because they both suck.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

For all of you who revel in calling the President of the USA "Spanky" I guess it is pointless to suggest that maybe you should try to respect the office, even if you don't respect the man.

But if that is too much to ask, you might at least find another term so you, yourselves, don't sound like 12 yr olds on a playground...

Right about one thing. Pointless to suggest it.

Not a huge fan of using "Spanky" myself, but...

... this ^.

You can't demand respect for the position of President, when the President himself has no respect for it.

Respect has to be earned also by respecting others. If you shit on people's heads and expect them to respect you....well, let's keep on dreaming.

I want specific quotes. Mostly proving he is a racist or where he disrespects someone who didn't disrespect him first.

The low hanging fruit has been picked to death already.

Who decides it's low-hanging fruit, though?

I thought his "pussy grabbing" conversation was pretty disrespectful towards women in general and spoke volumes about the man. No idea whether those women, whoever they were, had been first disrespectful to him but surely they didn't deserve the forced kissing and grabbing he was bragging about.

Might be low-hanging fruit to you but even if he wasn't president and was just a guy living on my block I would feel exactly the same. Dangerous old fossil with no respect for women. Avoid.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

It is not, most frequently imho, the folks who openly blurt out stupid or offensive stuff, who actually are the most dangerous. I am not saying it is ok to behave like an ill mannered brute, but saying that there are far worse things that come in a very polished packaging.

"I want specific quotes" Tweets are not specific quotes

"where he disrespects someone who didn't disrespect him first" Moving the goalposts now! Originally you posted "Can you provide links of Donald Trump shitting on other peoples heads"
