He was, before it was pointed out to all concerned that there would probably be a hundred thousand hysterical lefties running around town and it wouldn't have looked good on anyone.


Hysterical? 99,900 of them would just be holding up signs calling him a cockwomble or variants of.

What, in wanting a respectful state visit for Mr Trump, which he deserves for being the leader of the USA?

As with a lot things, you couldn't be more wrong.

The people of the United States could vote for a road side burger van, selling rancid roadkill as the top restaurant in their country...doesn't mean I have to want to eat there. He gets the amount of respect he deserves.

Again, you'll have to point out why you hate him so much other than being a misogynistic. I don't get it.

Ok. If you like. Donald Trump's life has been a long entitled trip through racist and unethical business practices, failure at almost everything he has ever touched but with bragging about how great he is at the same time, and behaviour in his personal life that includes cheating on spouses and, according to Ivana Trump, rape. If this were a one off allegation then we might believe she was simply trying to sell copies of her book, but he has a list of sexual assault allegations against him, which is further backed up by his repugnant words that he 'grabs 'em by the pussy'.

He is using the already polarised atmosphere in the US for his own ends, sowing more division and hatred through anti muslim, anti immigrant, anti science, ante bellum views and antagonistic, petty bitching beneath the office which he has stumbled into accidentally, as a project to boost his profile. He does not stand for anything, he has no redeeming virtues or vices. He is a terrible, terrible person on almost any level which you care to examine him.

Apart from that he is great.

It's interesting. I don't see what it's going to achieve though, I'm not sure the North Koreans are acting in good faith. Unless Kim rolls out the red carpet and Trump ends up completely infatuated with him, as Xi Jinping successfully achieved. It's already a success for the North Koreans because they've faced Trump down from "talks are useless" to "I'm happy to meet him", and undoubtedly there'll be some form of sanction relief to go along with this. There won't be denuclearization though.

I'd say possibly at this stage. A lot can happen in two months, I mean nobody expected this on Monday, did they?

The last 5 leaders of the USA actually did talk to NK, just through diplomats rather than face to face. They also came up with lots of agreements which the North Koreans systematically undermined and broke. So forgive me my pessimism.

You've every right to be pessimistic, a year from now Mr Trump could be awarded a Nobel Peace Prize.

You seem determined to believe that anyone who is anti-Trump would be blind to anything good. If he genuinely gets North Korea to disarm, and create a peaceful status quo then he'll be praised for that.

Do good things, get praise. Do bad things, get criticism...it's not that hard.

That's because you've been hysterical.

I would suggest that Trump's first year as POTUS has been the most successful first year ever.

We can discuss the facts if you like?

I am perfectly calm, I assure you. I don't know why you insist on imagining that people who disagree with you cannot just be rational debaters?

As for your facts, I'll be very surprised if you manage to bring anything new to the table. Don't you think that's what the entirety of this thread is?

I didn't mean you directly, I mean the collective.

He's brought in real tax cuts that are helping small businesses, stock market records, increased economic growth by over 3% for two quarters in a row, trade deals with China and Korea.....would you like me to carry on?

That is not the full tweet.

That is not the full tweet.

and believe someone who has not always had the NHS, it has worked and (with the imminent arrival of my 3rd child in an NHS hospital) continues to work for me and my wife


Post the full tweet then.

I love the NHS and will defend it to the depth, doesn't change the fact Trump wasn't actually wrong, does it?

As for your facts, I'll be very surprised if you manage to bring anything new to the table. Don't you think that's what the entirety of this thread is?


I didn't mean you directly, I mean the collective.

He's brought in real tax cuts that are helping small businesses, stock market records, increased economic growth by over 3% for two quarters in a row, trade deals with China and Korea.....would you like me to carry on?


Same old, same old. You say tax cuts, to which I counter that the tax cuts will mainly go to the rich, will amount to very little for middle to lower income families in even the medium term, and that he is doubling down on the problems that already beset the american economy. Stock market records and current state of the economy are still largely Obama based (I will say that he has no doubt created more confidence, so partial credit...but it's still based on what came before).

Whatever you choose to believe he has succeeded on, it is because you want to believe it. The impact of the things he has forced through are yet to be realised. You believe these are good things, I don't. I think we're brewing to a second financial crash (which before you think I am putting that all on Trump - the foundations are still shaky from a decade ago - I just think his efforts are making it worse).

As for Obama's legacy, there are things I didn't mention which I could have given false credit for, like low unemployment levels.

He passed tax reform. Fact. The impact of the tax reform will be good. Opinion.

There is a definite case for being the best first year of a Presidential term, ever.

I've said my bit here and have taken the piss out of the collective, poorly, with my Tredeau thread. Good day to you.

Has anyone from the WH explained why the State Dept spokesman announced midday that there is nothing happening in terms of scheduling talks or talks about talks yet a SK spokesman in front of the WH the same evening announced talks and a possible meeting between the Orange Shitgibbon and Rocket Man?

Without a single word from the WH or the State Dept.
