Just how easily influenced is Trump?
WASHINGTON—President Trump is re-evaluating a rapid pullout of U.S. troops from Syria, an influential Republican senator said Sunday, signaling White House concerns that a withdrawal could allow Islamic State militants to regain a foothold in the country.

The president’s decision earlier this month marked an abrupt shift in U.S. Middle East policy and helped prompt the resignation of Defense Secretary Jim Mattis. Critics have warned the exit of more than 2,000 U.S. forces could also strengthen Iran’s power and fuel worries about U.S. commitment among other allies around the world. A day after the defense secretary resigned, Brett McGurk, the senior U.S. envoy to the international coalition fighting Islamic State, resigned as well.

“The president is reconsidering how we do this,” Senator Lindsey Graham (R., S.C.) said on CNN. Mr. Graham added that he has discussed the Syria withdrawal with Marine Gen. Joe Dunford, who as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff is Mr. Trump’s top military adviser, and that he planned to pitch a new approach to the president during a Sunday meeting.

“I’m going to ask him to sit down with his generals and reconsider how to do this,” Mr. Graham said, saying he wants the administration to “slow this down, make sure we get it right, make sure ISIS never comes back.”

The White House’s National Security Council declined to comment and referred to a Dec. 23 tweet by the president. “I just had a long and productive call with President @RT_Erdogan of Turkey,” Mr. Trump wrote. “We discussed ISIS, our mutual involvement in Syria, & the slow & highly coordinated pullout of U.S. troops from the area. After many years they are coming home. We also discussed heavily expanded trade.”

That was my point, sort of. I have taken to heart some comment that we Europeans are eager to express an opinion on American politics in a way that would appear arrogant if the reverse was true.
It hasn't stopped Trump or his supporters getting stuck in to Europe, or anywhere else for that matter.

All it will take is a hissy fit by Coulter or some Fox thicko to swing him/them back again.

That reference to his twitter feed is cringe worthy, both in the content and the need to refer it.

But with a wall, he will be remembered as a small cartoon figure who briefly inflamed and amused the rabble enough to get an expensive wall built.

It has been mentioned that the budget for building the wall does not take into consideration the budget for maintaining the wall. But when it comes to manning it, I don't know if that has come up. However, I would guess that it would be largely unmanned. After all, there are border police who patrol along the border already - having a wall will not make their job harder. They will probably have to do what they do now, and regularly patrol the areas where there are the most crossings and ensure that the wall is not breached.

Obviously it won't stop people crossing - it will make it more difficult, but far from impossible. If they want an impenetrable barrier then they will have to put up guard posts. And pay the guards well, to avoid them taking bribes (as enough of them do at the moment). But the designs don't seem to have guard posts, so my assumption is that the wall is to be a symbol rather than a genuinely uncrossable barrier between the US and Mexico.

I’m in the Oval Office. Democrats, come back from vacation now and give us the votes necessary for Border Security, including the Wall. You voted yes in 2006 and 3013. One more yes, but with me in office, I’ll get it built, and Fast!

Don't forget that a very large part of the budget for the wall; is actually to put in hundreds of miles of access roads, so you can get equipment to the border, & bring in the prefabbed wall sections. These new roads will then make it much easier, & safer, for the illegals to get from the border into the US. There'll be busses running from some places :lol: :lol: :lol:

Coulter must be loving just how easy Trump is to manipulate. Her, Hannity and Limbaugh did a fantastic job of getting Trump to reverse course on the wall funding and shut down the gubmint, despite GOP Senate agreement on the proposed funding bill.
He's been led around by the nose repeatedly, by hostile foreign leaders, talk show rabble rousers and tearful daughters, exactly as was feared by the smartest and sexiest of commentators prior to his taking office.

He's back on task:
US President Donald Trump defended his decision to withdraw from Syria as the fulfillment of a campaign promise, pushing back against criticism from lawmakers in his own party that the abrupt change in policy harms US interests and cedes influence to Russia and Iran.

"I campaigned on getting out of Syria and other places," Trump said on Monday (Tuesday NZ Time) on Twitter. "Now when I start getting out the Fake News Media, or some failed Generals who were unable to do the job before I arrived, like to complain about me & my tactics, which are working. Just doing what I said I was going to do!"

LINK to article

He's dictating foreign policy and risking lives merely in order to tick another box in his bragging rights list. It's more about the campaign than being a leader and doing right.

“I’m going to ask him to sit down with his generals and reconsider how to do this,” Mr. Graham said, saying he wants the administration to “slow this down, make sure we get it right, make sure ISIS never comes back.”

The White House’s National Security Council declined to comment and referred to a Dec. 23 tweet by the president. “I just had a long and productive call with President @RT_Erdogan of Turkey,” Mr. Trump wrote. “We discussed ISIS, our mutual involvement in Syria, & the slow & highly coordinated pullout of U.S. troops from the area. After many years they are coming home. We also discussed heavily expanded trade.”

All it will take is a hissy fit by Coulter or some Fox thicko to swing him/them back again.

That reference to his twitter feed is cringe worthy, both in the content and the need to refer it.
Coulter must be loving just how easy Trump is to manipulate. Her, Hannity and Limbaugh did a fantastic job of getting Trump to reverse course on the wall funding and shut down the gubmint, despite GOP Senate agreement on the proposed funding bill.
He's been led around by the nose repeatedly, by hostile foreign leaders, talk show rabble rousers and tearful daughters, exactly as was feared by the smartest and sexiest of commentators prior to his taking office.

He's back on task:
US President Donald Trump defended his decision to withdraw from Syria as the fulfillment of a campaign promise, pushing back against criticism from lawmakers in his own party that the abrupt change in policy harms US interests and cedes influence to Russia and Iran.

"I campaigned on getting out of Syria and other places," Trump said on Monday (Tuesday NZ Time) on Twitter. "Now when I start getting out the Fake News Media, or some failed Generals who were unable to do the job before I arrived, like to complain about me & my tactics, which are working. Just doing what I said I was going to do!"

He's dictating foreign policy and risking lives merely in order to tick another box in his bragging rights list. It's more about the campaign than being a leader and doing right.
It's ratings.

That's all that matters.

Yep.

As an aside, He's the best thing that has ever happened to Putin's career as a despot and expansionist abroad. Putin loves him to pieces.

Can you imagine the Kompromat that Putin could have on him based on what already know about his past behaviours ... ? The final movie revealing all on this period could be a cracker ...

The latest senior military figure to criticise Trump is now the retired Gen Stanley McChrystal, who called trump 'immoral' in an interview on ABC.

Trump found time amidst one of his latest twitter flurries to respond
"'General' McChrystal got fired like a dog by Obama, last assignment a total bust. Known for big, dumb mouth. Hillary lover!"
Classy as always, but you just know when Trump first heard it, he was thinking "Immoral? What, he thinks I'm going to live forever?"

From Drumpf's twitter feed
President and Mrs. Obama built/has a ten foot Wall around their D.C. mansion/compound. I agree, totally necessary for their safety and security. The U.S. needs the same thing, slightly larger version!

He's currently going strong on flat-out easily disproven lies.

He's currently claiming that the Senate Democrats have been blocking 350 nominations from filling their posts.

In a republican majority Senate that does not require a single democrat vote to confirm a nomination...

Getting tougher and tougher for his fan-not fan club to defend. He went full mong over Xmas - new year desperately trying to crash past real Santa and back into the headlines.

I was quite happy when this thread fell off the front page, signs of him losing presence in the global conscience. It seems there’s nothing more terrifying to him than that, so much so he’s doing anything to force a story. Sitting in his grandad dressing gown shooting blanks into twitter. So much angst. So much froth. So alpha.

Yeah. Nah. It will suit him to have someone else to blame for BAD THINGS. VERY BAD
