"What a lot of people don't know is, in his high school years he got sent to a military prep school. Upon graduation it was expected the graduands would go on to become an officer and a gentleman at one of their fine academies. He instead chose to go into business. But his buddies are now generals sitting opposite him for dinner."

That's a nice bit of rewriting of history. Trump was sent to "military prep school" because his old man was concerned young Donald was starting to play up. The New York Military Academy was a nursery for officers and gentlemen about as much as the Salvation Army is: the primary purpose of the former was to prepare kids for academic success. (and also, pretty much anyone who has read anything about Donald Trump knows he got sent to boarding school by his parents).

All the slagging off of Trump has amounted to naught. He is in fact doing a great job. What matters is that behind him stands the military. I am much happier with this then if it were the CIA or FBI.

What a lot of people don't know is, in his high school years he got sent to a military prep school. Upon graduation it was expected the graduands would go on to become an officer and a gentleman at one of their fine academies. He instead chose to go into business. But his buddies are now generals sitting opposite him for dinner.

This is what he has to say about the wall;

He doesn't elaborate on how the billions of savings will be made. However, my guess is it will be from sacking all those boarder guards and every other federal spend that goes in to policing it.

Asked on Friday whether he trusted the people around him, Trump responded: “I do. But what I do is now I look around the room.”

The last word should perhaps go to Armando Iannucci, the British satirist, who last week tweeted a joke pitch for a movie in which Trump is replaced and moved by his aides to a fake White House where he thinks he is still president.

Iannucci later tweeted: “Er . . . looks like Hollywood’s interested. Now what do we do?”

- my suggestion; start building the set

Been to the USA many times, Trump has the swamp worried, it's his way or the highway, all the people we know are more than happy with what he's doing.

There is no lack of people outside the US who deride the POTUS.
Indeed, according to a Gallup Poll
QUOTE
One year into Donald Trump's presidency, the image of U.S. leadership is weaker worldwide than it was under his two predecessors. Median approval of U.S. leadership across 134 countries and areas stands at a new low of 30%, according to a new Gallup report.
Median approval of U.S. leadership is 30%, down from 48% in 2016
U.S. approval dropped substantially in 65 countries and areas
Germany's leadership now tops that of U.S., China and Russia


Anyone who has spent time is one of the most insular Nations on the planet, will have learned that the vast majority of Americans will not give a hoot , even if they were bothered to read any news articles (real or Fake) on the subject.

While I , like so many others may think he is an oaf, my opinion , along with all the others outside the US, is of absolutely no consequence. I am unable to vote in US elections.
And among those who can vote, significant numbers of people did vote for Trump.

As I prepare for my sixth trip to the USA, I will be eager to look up past acquaintances, who were so excited about the Donalds elevation to POTUS.
One thing I did learn was that outside of the wealthy elite in big cities, there were large tracts of the population who were keen supporters of Trump.
It will be their opinions, and theirs alone who will decide his fate.

I could of course post every day about the shenanigans that is Season 2, Donald Trump POTUS, but then again I don't watch any of the reality or cooking shows on free to air tv and for the most part I am totally "over" the soap opera that is US politics.

But this one is just a classic. Yesterday an audio recording was released of a presentation Mr Trump gave over the weekend to a group of financial donors. In that presentation Mr Trump boasts about how he bullshitted the Prime Minister of Canada that the US has a trade deficit with Canada (in fact like Australia Canada runs a trade deficit with the US). Mr Trump said he actually had no idea what the facts were but tried it on anyway. Mr Trump said when the Canadian PM disputed this they sent two underlings out of the meeting room to get the information and when they came back reported that indeed the US does have a trade deficit with Canada. Okay so that's level one of Trump bullshitting, that of the Canadians.

Level Two of Trump's bullshitting was to the donors because of course the underlings did not have to leave the meeting room - that information would be in the briefing papers that both Trudeau and Trump would have had - and what they would have reported was that it was Canada not the US that has the trade deficit. Trump apparently tried on the same bullshit line with the group of donors as he tried on with Justin Trudeau: that in his eyes Canada is exploiting its trade with the US by running a trade surplus with the US (which is stupid economics anyway)

And now we have level three of Trump's bullshit. Apparently Trump invented the meeting - according to the Canandians no such discussion took place at any of the meetings between Trump and Trudeau. The best fit they can come up with is perhaps one specific telephone conversation where the trade balance was touched on but what appears to have happened is that Trump mashed various snippits from various conversations together to give a germ of truth to a totally fabricated anecdote.

It amazes me the number of people who still give Donald Trump the benefit of doubt everytime he asks them to pull his finger, I've not experienced such mass gullibility before.

Plenty of fissures already there as what i observe when i am there is blacks hate whites and the opposite as a rule. A lot try to sugar coat over it but the rule generally applies,we all know there are exceptions as i have talked to many moderate americans from both sides and trump calls it plain and simple as a rule. You either love or hate his style and here in europe all we see is what trumpy is saying and many say he is an idiot with a big mouth,maybe right but the north korean idiot is never criticised for all the drivel that sprouts from his mouth and actions from missle launches,etc,bears dont really care as i have no imput so whatever happens will happen,cheers mrbear

Trump didn't divide America, he exploited existing fissures.

In Virginia on Saturday, there were three deaths linked to what is believed to be the largest gathering of white nationalists in a decade. They had assembled to protest the city of Charlotteville’s decision to remove a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee. A man was arrested after driving a car into a crowd of peaceful counter-protestors, causing many injuries and one death; and two officers died when a police helicopter in the area crashed. U.S. President Donald Trump initially expressed disappointment with “many sides” for the violence between white nationalists and counter-protestors. The president faced heavy criticism for not specifically denouncing the white nationalists and neo-Nazis; a follow-up statement from the White House indicated that his condemnation extended to these groups.
===================

since trump divided USA , we might see more of these sorta things with trump in charge
