Well at least he did not sign an agreement with North Korea.
Do not let success go to your head and do not let failure get to your heart.
‘He took a punch for all of us’: Trump invites Berkeley attack victim on stage as suspect arrested
1) The two Trump golf courses in Scotland have lost something like $200 million under Trump management. The losses are covered by loans from the Trump Organization. But where is that money coming from? Trump Co doesn't have anything like sufficient income.
2) Trump bought the land for his Aberdeen golf course in 2006 and Turnberry in 2014. By then, no reputable lender wd deal with him. How did he find the cash to buy the properties?
3) Trump's latest tweet about his golf course not only used the prestige of the presidency to promote his business - squalid, possibly illegal - but also directly linked the US-UK relationship to his golf courses. Was that some kind of request? Or threat?
How Russian Money Helped Save Trump’s Business
After his financial disasters two decades ago, no U.S. bank would touch him. Then foreign money began flowing in.
As late as 2003, Trump was in such
desperate financial trouble that at a meeting with his siblings
following his father’s death he pressed them to hurriedly sell his
father’s estate off, against the late Fred Trump’s wishes, the New York Times reported in
an investigation of Trump family finances in October. And his
businesses kept failing: In 2004, Trump Hotels and Casino Resorts filed
for bankruptcy with $1.8 billion dollars of debt.
But Trump eventually made a comeback,
and according to several sources with knowledge of Trump’s business,
foreign money played a large role in reviving his fortunes, in
particular investment by wealthy people from Russia and the former
Soviet republics. This conclusion is buttressed by a growing body of evidence amassed by news organizations, as well as what is reportedly being investigated by
Special Counsel Robert Mueller and the Southern District of New York.
It is a conclusion that even Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., has
appeared to confirm, saying in 2008—after the Trump Organization was
prospering again—that “Russians make up a pretty disproportionate
cross-section of a lot of our assets.”
Trump’s former longtime architect, Alan Lapidus, echoed this view in an interview with FP this month. Lapidus said that based on what he knew from the internal workings of the organization, in
the aftermath of Trump’s earlier financial troubles “he could not get
anybody in the United States to lend him anything. It was all coming out
of Russia. His involvement with Russia was deeper than he’s
From a guy who won the Nobel economics prize for his work on trade theory:
This is the way the trade war ends. Not with a bang but with empty bombast.
According to multiple news organizations,
the U.S. and China are close to a deal that would effectively end trade
hostilities. Under the reported deal, America would remove most of the
tariffs it imposed last year. China, for its part, would end its
retaliatory tariffs, make some changes to its investment and competition
policies and direct state enterprises to buy specified amounts of U.S.
agricultural and energy products.
The Trump administration will, of course, trumpet the deal as a triumph. In reality, however, it’s much ado about nothing much.
described, the deal would do little to address real complaints about
Chinese policy, which mainly involve China’s systematic expropriation of
intellectual property. Nor would it do much to address Donald Trump’s
pet although misguided peeve, the imbalance in U.S.-China trade.
Basically, Trump will have backed down.
If this is the story, it will repeat what we saw on the North American Free Trade Agreement, which Trump denounced as the “worst trade deal ever made.”
In the end, what Trump negotiated — the U.S. Mexico Canada Agreement,
or U.S.M.C.A. — was very similar to the previous status quo. Trade
experts I know, when not referring to it as the Village People
agreement, call it “Nafta 0.8”: fundamentally the same as Nafta, but a
Also, too, global warming having no effect at all especially not in North Carolina:
President Donald Trump, the self-proclaimed Tariff Man, is set to become the $100 Billion Man.
If the trends of the past year and economists’ expectations hold true, trade data to be released Wednesday will show the U.S.’s deficit in goods and services with the world topped $600 billion in 2018. That means Trump’s presidency will have seen the U.S. trade shortfall -- the main metric by which he judges countries to be winning or losing -- grow by more than $100 billion.
Put another way, by Trump’s own benchmark the U.S. is 20 percent worse off than it was at the end of 2016, just before he took office.
The deficit with China has also increased.
POTUS let that little tubby troll rub his our nose in it.
Just landed - a long trip, but everybody can now feel much safer than the day I took office. There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea.
June 14th 2018
Satellite images of a facility near Pyongyang suggest that North Korea may be preparing to launch a missile or a satellite.
The increase in activity is around a site known as Sanumdong, where North Korea assembled most of its ballistic missiles and rockets.
It comes after reports earlier this week that North Korea's main rocket launch site at Sohae had been rebuilt.

Thought experiment: Hillary is President. She rams a security clearance through for Chelsea, who flies to Saudi Arabia to meet with the crown prince after a journalist is brutally murdered. All embassy staff are excluded. No one knows what they talk about. What are the headlines?
Jobs created in Trump's first 25 full months: 4.9 million Jobs created in Obama's final 25 full months: 5.3 million
Just got a text from my mom about my dad's insulin prescriptions. The prescription company called to inform them that the 90-day supply of Levemir, one of two insulins he takes, went from $95 to $946. Un-fucking-believable.
Donald Trump Jr., Sen. Daines: American sportsmen have reason to celebrate new access to public lands
It's pure evil to open up public lands which are wildlife refuges to hunting. This is a new low for Trump.
If you're on Trump's bad side, don't die while he's in office.
I've admired a lot of your comebacks.
But I can only ask of Hillary; can you bury her name from this thread?
They still talk about her on american conservative talk-radio. 4-5 hundred am stations across the country under Limbaugh, Hannity, Levin, & their local affiliates. Daily.
Side note- I get several tea-party news letters to keep up..and she & obama mentioned every day..usually with headlines BOOM! Crooked Hillary in another shameful sham. WOW, Sick Nancy Impeachment SCAM, don't let liberals stop Trump....I'm thinking...but Trump aint got a damn Tea Party member in his cabinet.
He's got Goldman Sachs, Wall-Street and about 12 Bush Jr alumni from my last count, but I digress...
I have hundred of emails to give by examples if need.
May I make a request? What do you know about Monsanto? Is it global or are they just in America?
And how does the world view Trump & Kim Un's meeting? I was under the impression a mountain collapsed in North Korea, meaning they were temporarily inoperable, to which Trump told Americans...no he is about to prove his diplomatic prowess. And peep this K-...He said it was nothing short of a .....miracle.
Or was it a different take across the big POND?
Keep up the great work, but serious, bury Obama & Hillary.
All's lost! Everything's going to shit!
