US President Donald Trump will make his first state visit to the United Kingdom in June, from June 3 to June 5, and will involve the full trappings of a state occasion.

Sadly theres going to be a lot of that in Britains future, without the EU behind them they are going to have to suck up to any old arsehole, sad days.

Maybe he didn't get a good enough look at the blimp last time.

Worth mentioning that the petitions.net petition for 'Support Donald Trump making state visit to U.K.' got 35 signatures, no thats not a typo, 35, not 35 hundred, not 35 thousand, 35.

Those 35 proved to be more effective than the millions in the Brexit petition

Last July

Donald J. Trump@realDonaldTrump

Now that Harley-Davidson is moving part of its operation out of the U.S., my Administration is working with other Motor Cycle companies who want to move into the U.S.
Harley customers are not happy with their move - sales are down 7% in 2017. The U.S. is where the Action is!

4:00 PM - 3 Jul 2018
And today

Quote:
Donald J. Trump@realDonaldTrump

“Harley Davidson has struggled with Tariffs with the EU, currently paying 31%. They’ve had to move production overseas to try and offset some of that Tariff that they’ve been hit with which will rise to 66% in June of 2021.” @MariaBartiromo
So unfair to U.S. We will Reciprocate!

Doesn't matter. His core supporters don't trawl through past tweets and news articles so what trips off his tweeter is relevant for the now. They seem to regard anyone who digs a bit deeper and comes up with glaring discrepancies and errors as liberal lefties creating fake news.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

One day after the announcement of his UK State visit
Quote:
Donald J. Trump@realDonaldTrump

“Former CIA analyst Larry Johnson accuses United Kingdom Intelligence of helping Obama Administration Spy on the 2016 Trump Presidential Campaign.” @OANN WOW!
It is now just a question of time before the truth comes out, and when it does, it will be a beauty!

1:04 PM - 24 Apr 2019
This the expert who wrote an article for the NY Times a couple of months before 9/11 claiming Americans had little to fear from terrorism. More recently claimed the CIA were behind terrorist attacks in Turkey.

Last time Trump supported this daft UK claim by Larry Johnson was in March 2017. It caused a big diplomatic incident between US and UK which was resolved when the White House eventually retracted the claim.

Clearly Trump has a problem linking today to yesterday or to any other relevant point.

lol I'm sure they are - cleverly disguised so that they have the element of surprise when they start randomly slaughtering the poor innocent Americans walking around that area cause as we all know, that's what they do

Lizzie apparently doesn't want the orange moron to overnight at Buckingham Palace, which is conveniently being "renovated" during his visit

The funny (did I say funny? I mean tragic) elements for me about this is that a) the orange moron has nothing better to do than insult Biden's intelligence on Twitter, which I mean come on and b) the first general reaction is to question Biden's presumably inappropriate behavior towards women, so it appears that it doesn't matter that a well-known sexist misogynist whose behavior has been well documented in ACTUAL proof is currently in office.

Seriously, I feel sorry for everyone who apparently doesn't have two brain cells plus a memory shorter than that of an effing plant. I honestly love the US for many things, but I have been and continue to be ashamed on behalf of it for what's been happening in the last couple of years. Not that I'm saying the rest of the world is much better, but it's getting really, really, really ridiculous.

Biden is competing for the votes of different people than Trump, his potential voters are the same who despise Trump for a good many things. Though I don't quite get the outrage over Biden's, at worst it's a nuisance.

The price of gas (gasoline, petrol, etc) is approaching $4 a gallon in the San Francisco Bay Area. People are getting upset... What are you currently paying in Switzerland?
Trump has tactics, not strategies!
Why push up oil prices by cancelling Iran sanction wavers when he often claims the credit for low prices?

And why keep attacking the Mueller report which then damages his claim of "complete exoneration"?

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

President Trump said Saturday during a rally in Green Bay, Wis. that the U.S. is already sending immigrants to sanctuary cities!

Source

Seems unlikely as a detention centre in Dilley, Texas, is only at at 26% capacity and another centre in Berks county, Pennsylvania, is only at 19% capacity.
ICE claimed it did not have the resources available to move people from the nearly 2,000-mile border to detention centers in Texas and Pennsylvania.

Source

Consequently it seems extremely "unlikely" ICE has the resources available to move people to sanctuary cities as Trump claimed!
