The Trump Presidency...

The Bromance is strong between these two. Trump is inviting his master/pimp over for a "slumber" party.
Nah, Vlad's told Dump he want's Ivanka to piss on him. If Dump doesn't arrange it, the Dump's piss tape gets released. Which I've no doubt it will do at some point, when it suits Vlad to do so.

On first sight this is a shocker but then you have to understand that the absolute hysteria on American media this week is actually strengthening his base ahead of the mid term elections - I ve seen people from the dems CNN CNBC etc comparing the Heksinki mtg to pearl harbour 9/11 the holocaust etc etc - in short they have completely lost the plot!! But trumps polling figures have not dropped and the mtg had a75% approval rate with his base )
He is still not doing that well when companred to his previous presidents though:

yes, but hes up against decrepit democrats whose base want rid of eg schumer, pelosi - also the democrats have literally no policies other than bring back the taxes trump canned and resist at all costs plus the emergence of the Democratic Socialists are causing them real problems. Its akin to Treason May and Jeremy Corbyn in that the alternative just isn't that palatable - the dems 'blue wave' boast is so far not even a ripple!
 
Amateur Hour: Trump makes his third walk-back on Russia in three days
07/20/18 08:00 AM—UPDATED 07/20/18 08:06 AM By Steve Benen
The Truppit Link

On Monday, Donald Trump stood alongside Vladimir Putin and said he was inclined to take the Russian president’s word over the findings of his own country’s intelligence agencies. A day later, the American president tried to pretend he misspoke.

The same day, however, Trump said Russia is no longer targeting American elections, again contradicting the assessments of the U.S. intelligence community. Later, the White House walked that back, ignoring what was plainly true.

Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) told the Associated Press, “There’s a walk-back of the walk-back of the walk-back of the walk-back? This is dizzying.”

And yet, it got worse. On Wednesday, the White House acknowledged that the president was considering a proposal from Putin – which Trump publicly praised – that would involve turning over innocent Americans to Russia for questioning. This, not surprisingly, generated hair-on-fire apoplexy from U.S. officials and a Senate resolution in opposition to the idea that passed unanimously.

All of which led to the third White House walk-back in three days.

Ahead of the Senate vote Thursday on resolution, Sanders issued a follow-up statement backtracking on what she had said a day earlier about Trump’s position.
“It is a proposal that was made in sincerity by President Putin, but President Trump disagrees with it. Hopefully President Putin will have the 12 identified Russians come to the United States to prove their innocence or guilt,” she said.​
While I’m glad Trump is no longer considering a plan to turn over Americans for Russian interrogation, there’s nothing satisfactory about this particular reversal.


For one thing, the deferential tone, written in such a way as to avoid upsetting Moscow, was absurd on its face. There was nothing “sincere” about Putin’s proposal; it was a stunt Trump was foolish enough to fall for.

For another, this series of embarrassing walk-backs not only make Trump appear weak, they also offer damning evidence that America’s amateur president is simply out of his depth.

As a Washington Post analysis put it, these reversals suggest “he has no idea what he’s doing — and that he was completely out of his element when negotiating with someone like Putin. If that’s the image Trump is trying to project on the world stage, mission accomplished.”

One of the comments sums it up nicely

The Chump: "I warned Putin in our one-on-one 'We can't have meddling. We can't have any of that'" . Does he think Everyone is as damned dumb and gullible as his apologists? . No one was there to confirm he really said sh1t to his Russian handler. What a goddamned joke! Also I see Putin, at that last secret meeting, instructed the traitorous twatwaffle to have Bolton extend an invite to Putin to come to ANOTHER secret meeting opportunity at the Whites-Only House. We know Donnie DumbSh-t will do as he's told, and his brainless enablers will exclaim 'winning!'.

The man is execrable.
 
Irrefutable evidence has emerged proving that the @realDonaldTrump is as fake as the words coming out of the fat chumps mouth. While Putins and the truppits puppet continues to create chaos in the Whitzetag this photo shows the real Donald hiding and in disguise in the city of Rostov-on-Don in Russia’s southwestern Rostov Oblast region yesterday.

Mind you if I got peed on and ALL OF THE WORLD new it I might go into hiding myself.
 
Well well, by clicking the SAB button @headgear has just shown me two things:
1) He doesn't have a sense of humour.
and
2) He doesn't recognize sattire.

But then again I kind of knew that anyway.

Trump the bastion of morality again. Still Clinton etc etc again from the Trump catamites

Trump 'secretly recorded' by lawyer Cohen
 
The quote from Cohen's lawyer was interesting "suffice to say when the recording is heard it will not hurt Mr Cohen, any attempt as spin will not change what is on the tape" there is an obvious inference.
Let he who is without sin cast the first stone. Looks like more trouble inside Team Trump.

'Donald Trump says his ex-lawyer Michael Cohen may have acted illegally after it emerged that he secretly taped a discussion with the US President about a payment to a Playboy model.'

Trump slams lawyer over secret taping
 
Twitter users pounced on President Donald Trump early Saturday after he boasted about being “your favorite President.”
Trump attempted to dismiss a Friday report in the New York Times that his former personal lawyer Michael Cohen had before the 2016 election secretly taped him discussing a payment to former Playboy model Karen McDougal (with whom Trump is alleged to have had an affair) with the following tweet:

Donald J. Trump

@realDonaldTrump



Inconceivable that the government would break into a lawyer’s office (early in the morning) - almost unheard of. Even more inconceivable that a lawyer would tape a client - totally unheard of & perhaps illegal. The good news is that your favorite President did nothing wrong!
8:10 AM - Jul 21, 2018


Trump misleadingly claimed it was “inconceivable that the government would break into a lawyer’s office,” when Cohen’s office was in fact raided by the FBIearlier this year as part of a probe into possible campaign finance violations.
Trump also claimed it was “even more inconceivable that a lawyer would tape a client” and suggested it was “totally unheard of” and “perhaps illegal.” “The good news is that your favorite President did nothing wrong!” he added.
It was Trump’s assertion that he was “your favorite president” that raised eyebrows online, however. Dozens of tweeters responded in much the same way, with many making a similar point about former President Barack Obama:

Obama topped a survey of “best presidents” released by the Pew Research Center in July. He also ranked top of a “most admired men” list compiled by YouGov in April.
Trump faced a similar online backlash in January, after he bragged about being a “very stable genius” and “like, really smart.”
 
We all know that America's favourite President (not) who is also the Worlds smartest business man (not) who believe it or *not* is also the Worlds greatest negotiator will not even take heed of this warning and even went as far to complain about his own Federal Reserve raising interest rates again which was aimed at stopping a slide on the almighty $dollar . Nope, the orange twot who is only a legend in his own mind will continue blindly on and on adding more and more tariffs beyond the point where they make any sense at all until the world economy collapses.

However, when the economy does start to collapse at NO POINT will he take the blame, no Sirree, he will blame the Chinese, the Europeans, NAFTA, Hillary Clinton, Obama, the Democrats, and possibly fire his Economic Adviser.

Meanwhile the Truppits who by this time will have lost any monetary gains they may have made from the 'historic' (which really wasn't) TAX REFORM will still worship the Truppet Master.

IMF warns G20 economic leaders that tariffs hurting global economy

A link for the Truppits who will never read it.

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) warned world economic leaders on Saturday that a recent wave of trade tariffs would significantly harm global growth, a day after U.S. President Donald Trump threatened a major escalation in a dispute with China.

IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde said she would present the G20 finance ministers and central bank governors meeting in Buenos Aires with a report detailing the impacts of the restrictions already announced on global trade.

“It certainly indicates the impact that it could have on GDP (gross domestic product), which in the worst case scenario under current measures...is in the range of 0.5 pct of GDP on a global basis,” Lagarde said at a joint news conference with Argentine Treasury Minister Nicolas Dujovne.

Her warning came shortly after the top U.S. economic official, Treasury Minister Steven Mnuchin, told reporters in the Argentine capital there was no “macroeconomic” effect yet on the world’s largest economy.

Long-simmering trade tensions have burst into the open in recent months, with the United States and China - the world’s No. 2 economy - slapping tariffs on $34 billion worth of each other’s goods so far.

The weekend meeting in Buenos Aires comes amid a dramatic escalation in rhetoric on both sides. Trump on Friday threatened tariffs on all $500 billion of Chinese exports to the United States.

U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin will try to rally G7 allies over the weekend to join it in more aggressive action against China, but they may be reluctant to cooperate because of U.S. tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from the European Union and Canada, which prompted retaliatory measures. .

The last G20 finance meeting in Buenos Aires in late March ended with no firm agreement by ministers on trade policy except for a commitment to “further dialogue.”

German Finance Minister Olaf Scholz said he would use the meeting to advocate for a rules-based trading system, but that expectations were low.

“I don’t expect tangible progress to be made at this meeting,” Scholz told reporters on the plane to Buenos Aires.

Mnuchin told reporters on Saturday that he has not seen a macroeconomic impact from the U.S. tariffs on steel, aluminum and Chinese goods, along with retaliation from trading partners.

But he said there have been microeconomic effects on individual businesses, he said, adding that the administration was closely monitoring these and looking at ways to help U.S. farmers hurt by retaliatory tariffs.

The U.S. dollar fell the most in three weeks on Friday against a basket of six major currencies after Trump complained again about the greenback’s strength and about Federal Reserve interest rate rises, halting a rally that had driven the dollar to its highest level in a year.

Well at least that settles it for anyone who was in doubt that Trump is deluded.
 
Ahh so you can internet your knowledge. Nope I have not lived in all 50 states, but I have lived in Europe.
A fact is still a fact,I dont need to live in the US to be able to read facts about the US, you seem to think people have no right to say anything about the US unless they have lived there,, which is plainly nonsense, or that if they see your little bit of it then it somehow proves them wrong.

And whether or not you have lived in Europe is irrelevant
 
yes, but hes up against decrepit democrats whose base want rid of eg schumer, pelosi - also the democrats have literally no policies other than bring back the taxes trump canned and resist at all costs plus the emergence of the Democratic Socialists are causing them real problems. Its akin to Treason May and Jeremy Corbyn in that the alternative just isn't that palatable - the dems 'blue wave' boast is so far not even a ripple!
What are you on about? The rest is your usual whataboutery about the Democrats/Clinton, you would do well on Fox news with that sort of foaming at the mouth comments
