    The President Donald Trump Thread

    You miss a day on this thread and so much happens to catch up on. To answer SC_RNDude, "Love it or leave it" to me shows a closed mind set that thinks the USA is perfect as it is and brooks no argument or dissension. Despite the obvious problems in the USA. "Go back to where you came from" is definitely racist and is invariably spoken/shouted at non white people. It is disingenuous for any one to then deny it is racist or to deflect from the overt racism of the statement.

    No, I for one don't think all Trump supporters are racist but I do think that all racists are Trump supporters.

    Seriously? You are deflecting, you know that don't you? I heard "love it or leave it" in the 1960's against Viet Nam war protesters. Then it was said mainly against "middle class white people" who were born in America so hardly racist (Yes, I know there were coloured protesters as well). Now it is being said against women of colour who are criticising. Do you see any difference there? I'm sure that members on this thread who are people of colour will have heard "go home" ad nauseum as they were growing up - it is bullying and it is racist. But you know this, you are just trying to be a Trump or racist (or both, they are becoming synonymous) apologist.

    Now we know why Trump pulled America out of the UN Human Rights Council.

    The President Donald Trump Thread

    Just had a thought; all the films that are made about saving the president, like Olympus has fallen and White House down etc. were made with sensible presidents in power. Who in their right mind would decide to put their life on the line for Trump? Can you imagine the talk - "It is your job to take a bullet for trump."

    I agree, it is shocking that the supposed leader of the free world behaves like this. What is even more shocking is that he is getting away with it and even being lauded and defended by people. I really thought America had moved away from the "love it or leave it" mentality of the 1960's and had realised that sometimes criticism is good. However, Donald Trump is presidenting (is that a word?) by reality television. It is the same nonsense that I used to see on any of the reality TV rubbish. I refuse to watch "reality" TV on the basis that it is, a) not real and, b) usually rubbish about people I have never heard of and have no interest in. Sadly the current White House is heading in that direction. I'm sorry America, but your allies now looks at you as a joke and are concerned where this is going to go. As an addendum to that thought can I remind the Trump supporters here that it was the UK and Europe who immediately came to Americas aid after 9/11. This clown is going to put that support in jeopardy.

    As an addendum to this thread; I came across this piece which says that trump is a useless negotiator. https://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2018/06/01/donald-trump-deals-negotiation-art-of-deal-218584

    And there is more leaking:--- https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-48978484 This is getting interesting, the press have freedom here but I wonder how far the police will allow them to go considering that the person who leaked the memos must have signed the official secrets act and therefore committed a crime but the journalist who printed the story hasn't.

    10,796 lies in 876 days. Apparently impossible for this president to not make stuff up. https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/politics/trump-claims-database/?utm_term=.09f19e3c68da

    Sorry Tweety, he was not "caught" he was leaked by someone - lots of suspects in the frame. Russia, America, Boris Johnson, China. Anyone or government who wants to destabilise Europe and give America an advantage. Remember the outcry when wikileaks did exactly the same thing?

    Sorry Dude, I did not see your post when I posted the Guardian clip. I am going to make an assumption that you are being moderated - been there myself so understand what has happened. If I am wrong I apologise. I watched the debate that the article references and Johnson showed moral cowardice by not standing behind the ambassador. A country cannot allow another country to dictate to them. He wants to suck up to Trump and is hoping that way he will get a good deal from him - I don't trust Trump as I saw what he did in Scotland. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/nov/08/trump-golf-course-has-ruined-dunes-habitat https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-48789620 Also worth watching this;

    It is seriously like listening to a 12 year old. And if he thinks Boris Johnson is any better he needs to look at this;

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-48937120 https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/live/uk-politics-parliaments-48936641 So Trump gets what he wanted because Sir Kim Darroch is a decent and adult human being unlike your president (very lower case "p") who at best could be described as a spoiled, nasty, bullying, selfish, narcissistic brat. Perhaps the other ambassadors will now let slip what their assessments are.

    I know I have not posted for a while, but Ted so sorry to hear about Mayson. Our last dog went in a very similar manner. One of the hardest decisions we had to make was to take her to the vet for that final time. You have my deepest sympathies. You did the final kindest thing we can do for our hairy bairns, you can make them peaceful and comfortable at the end. D*mn, I have tears in my eyes as I typed that. Good luck to you and Amy. You will know when it is time to get another one. We now have a Spaniel coming up for 2 and he is a constant joy.
