Should there be a no deal Brexit he'd be right and the Tories are the ones to sell it to him,so long as they have a percentage of the profit.
It's what the Tories are all about

And it gets worse and worse:

Drumpf will be nurturing his very own Sturmabteilung - if he hasn't done so already. As manifest in Charlottesville and now in Portland...

I am only mad north-by-north-west: when then wind is southerly, I know the difference between a hawk and a handsaw

So would you ( or even could you) offer to sell your backyard to Trump & the US of A?

I'd want the money in my account first. His credit rating isn't good.

There was an interesting commentary earlier today on the radio about why he's pulled out of visting Denmark and it has nothing to do with their PM not being prepared to talk about selling Greenland.

Apparently Obama is visiting Denmark a few weeks after Trump was to visit (Obama giving some talk and/or Q&A to students in Northern Denmark) and the thought is that Trump is scared Obama will undoubtedly draw a large crowd and he will get a few people all of whom will all be booing him and the US press will report the comparison extensively. So he's scared about the comparison so he's cancelled his visit. And Obama's visit was only announced a week ago so Trump cancelled his visit pretty soon after he realised Obama was going there....

Which also feeds into another wild speculation from a talking head I don't hold much regard for (Trumps ex PR guy that lasted for less than 2 weeks, can't remember his name) but his thought made a lot of sense. He was saying he thinks it likely that Trump might pull out of the next Presidential elections. His supposition is that Trump has such an ego and is such a narcissist that standing and losing would be a disaster for that ego and, as the news and polls get bad, so Trump will look for an excuse and he thought it likely that Trump would pull out of standing for another term around next March under some daft excuse (bone spurs maybe?) but purely becaus ehos ego could not stand it should he lose.

Greenland isn't for sale. But I suspect that the UK might well be, soon enough.

Quite frankly I think that is utter nonsense.
The media constantly show pictures of empty seats wherever he goes - even if they know the rest of the venue is packed so it would be hardly unusual
His poll ratings are consistently good and improving. The Democrats are doing terribly as they can't field a single credible candidate. Any who could make a credible opposition, such as Gabbard, won't be allowed as her anti-war stance doesn't quite fit in with their war-mongering agenda (who's the only president who spent the whole of his two terms at war?)
I think your TDS is very strong here

Empty seats at his events is very different from the comparison between one of his events and one of Obamas. He seems to have some sort of intense hatred of anything Obama.

What is TDS? Not heard of is and search engines give no clue.
