Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Dow crashed below 26,000 again today; second time in a week! Stock markets are very volatile at the moment.

White House is leaking even more information now than in the first two years of Trump. Must confess I did not believe the stories about Trump wanting to buy Greenland and to cut the payroll tax but he has now confirmed both of them!

President Trump said Tuesday that Jewish people who vote for Democrats are either ignorant or disloyal! Caused a storm of protest from US Jewish organisations who claim 75% vote Democrat.

As was discussed here in the past, the US support for Israel is mostly driven by the US Evangelists who believe the Jews are bookmarking Israel until the "Second Coming".
How much the US Jews are actually interested in supporting Israel is not clear, maybe the fact they live in the US gives us a clue?

Latest leak is that Trump called the National Rifle Association to say he was backing off from gun control legislation!

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

So Trump has cancelled his trip to Denmark as the mean Prime Minister won't sell him 10,000 people and an island...

After he said earlier in the week that it wasn't even a topic for discussion on the trip.

Hands up then, who's still defending this puerile, deluded bellend?

Top trolling by Greenland...

Quote:
The prime minister of Greenland, Kim Kielsen, said in an interview with the danish newspaper Politiken, that the Greenlandic government was thinking about buying America back from the US government.
[...]

Quote:
Asked if he has a price in mind, he answered that he hasn’t decided yet, but it would obviously take note of the monstrous debt of the US economy. He added that if Trump would be part of the deal, the price would be even lower.

Such a pity. I would have love to see his face when he would realize that the country looks white instead of green.

I can't imagine anyone who would be more delighted seeing a white country.

Yes the comedy continues although I must admit, I'm torn between what's getting the biggest laughs
this month Boris, Brexit, JRM & the ERG or Trump ?

BBC News - Trump warned that Greenland's not for sale from Denmark

Well Trump's really got the hump this time - with him cancelling his State visit to Denmark, over the
Greenland spat.

BBC News - Trump cancels Denmark visit over Greenland spat

Trouble is it will no doubt give Trump's buddy Putin ideas, that he can quickly resolve the Crimea sovereignty
dispute by purchasing it from Ukraine. Using Trump's 19th century style US expansion plans as an excuse
for Russia to do the same.

How will Trump talk his way out of this failure?

And despite Trump claiming several times ISIS are completely destroyed "Secretary of State Mike Pompeo yesterday acknowledged that there are "places where ISIS is more powerful today than they were three or four years ago".

Haha, that might have shocked Trump....for the rest of us it is no surprise that American Jews vote (mostly) with the Democrats.


Does Trump really know his bases?

I understand the Vikings were the original marketing wizards. They wanted to stop people going the that first island, but wanted them to go a little bit further.

Hence Iceland (with not so much Ice) and Greenland (with not so much Green) were named.

OK, I take it back, I thought this was just him distracting from something, I never thought even he was so stupid as to be serious.

still, what is it his fans say? "but at least he's not Hilary" hmmmm.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Wonder how much Trump is hoping that cancelling/postponing his state visit is going to not only inconvenience but also be financially costly to a small country like Denmark for whom the preparations are probably more onerous than for a larger one. Seems to be treating them in a similar way as he did his unpaid contractors.

Trump should declare a national emergency as soon as possible! He has to send troops to Greenland and take it by force!!

Not to mention that they don't eat that many swedes in Sweden, and that people from Oslo are not even that slow.

I guess she had to keep it dignified on an official level and show their measured disapproval. I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall behind closed doors with the PM and her cabinet.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

I have always found it somewhat ironic that it was an American that penned “How to win friends and influence people”.
