Trump AGAIN?????????

Postby reohn2 » 5 Jun 2017, 7:27pm

His attack on Sadiq Khan is nothing short of the rantings of a idiotic buffoon in charge of the most powerful nation on the planet!
Worth discussing?

Did you see the headline about the leaks:
"Trump is furious about the leaks ... though doctors tell him not to worry as it's normal for a man of his age"

Having seen what Kahn said and that Trump didn't bother to understand it and quoted it out of context so he could use it to support his own Muslim Ban, it does not reflect well. But it is apparently his nature to hold grudges against individuals and he apparently has a grudge against Khan after his comments against the Trump Muslim Ban.

It just shows Trump for what he is.

Could well be that the rest of the world will unite against him and the fight against global warming will be taken seriously at last

Does he have a plan that extends past the limitations of the number of characters he can shoe horn into his social media account?

Seems to me he's been giving our very own Mrs May sound bite lessons and look where it's leading her..........

If you keep UK politicians out of this and just focus on Trump you may have found a topic on which we can unite our nation!

If you get it wrong, the average person simply withdraws and apologies with grace. He compounds it and keeps digging. It's the oddest thing.

We have at least one other thread for having a go at Corbyn, May or whoever. I think a thread on Donald is a rare opportunity for everyone to come together in a unity of derision. Historians must already be mulling over comparisons with Caligula.

The trouble is that May has strongly aligned herself with Trump; she's tried to water down EU policies on climate change, rushing over and inviting him for a State Visit (something that is normally a 2nd term event, not 2nd week!), that she refused to condemn US pulling out of Paris Agreement and even pointed out supporting US action, etc. She is strongly aligning herself with Trump (presumably because she wants a Free Trade Deal from him - even though our current average US trade tariffs are already very lot so it's more a PR issue than a trade issue).
