Sounds like a libtard. :ohno:

I got a kick out of the Facebook memes criticizing Trump’s trade war and how he was going to screw the American people. Remember when off-shoring and “free trade” were anathema to lefties?

Farmers were all crying because it was going to be the end of the world and now Trump is claiming farm exports will increase under the deal. I suppose that's better than giving more subsidies to the farmers.

I'd like to see this as a poignant moment of strange bedfellows coming together to do something good, but have a strong feeling this is just trump being manipulated with flattery.

I was listening to Trumps news conference this afternoon. We all know he only speaks in hyperbolic phrases - but honestly his conferences are useless. THey provide no information. It's just ramblings.

There's actually something to that

When you're President, you can talk about nothing for 30 minutes but you have to do it artfully. Obama was very artful at filling up time with nothingness. In many respects, so were Reagan and Clinton.

The grave sin, at least to the chattering class, is that Trump isn't artful about anything.

But I doubt most people realize that when Presidents are experts at anything, they are usually experts at only one thing- drama acting. That's one reason Reagan was so good at it. He was patriotic melodrama personified. Obama was progressive melodrama personified. That only connects with people who want to hear that kind of message.

Trump doesn't check that box at all and it pisses off the "dignity of the office" people (I am one... but less than I used to be)

It's not like Uranium One and the Clinton Foundation at all. There never was anything to that. Acting like there was some kind of process by which Hillary Clinton controlled whether or not the Uranium One deal was approved or not is ridiculous. And it's even more ridiculous to compare the Uranium One thing to having something like what's described at https://www.cnbc.com/2018/05/16/the-ass ... rtner.html happen then have Trump start talking about saving a Chinese company as he did.

It's a good thing that voters are more concerned with the economy than anything else.

Yes you can troll me on that and I will respond. In the 2016 election it wasn't that a lot of people didn't care about the economy. They did.

In exit polling, when people were asked which was most important between foreign policy, immigration, the economy, and terrorism the economy was by far the one most people chose. 52% said the economy was most important. Terrorism was a distant second at 18%.

The problem is with saying that Trump won because of the economy. That's because, among that 52% who said the economy was most important, Clinton won by 52% to 41%.

Meanwhile, among the 18% who said terrorism was most important, Trump won by 57% to 40%. And among the 13% who said immigration was most important, Trump won by 64% to 33%.

It's not that the economy wasn't an important issue. It's that it's NOT the reason Trump got enough votes to get an electoral college win. What the left calls "Xenophobia" is what got Trump over the top.

Speaking of polls:
Republicans hold a slim lead over Democrats in a generic ballot among registered voters, a new Reuters poll found, marking the first time the survey showed the GOP ahead in this election cycle.

The poll showed 38.1 percent of registered voters said they would vote for a Republican candidate if midterm elections were held today, compared to just under 37 percent who said they’d vote for a Democrat.
