Pack once again, reading comprehension. Two different situations. Obama came to agree that rights are equal regardless of sexual orientation. There was no budget deal on that. Trump is trying to use DACA as a bargaining chip for the wall. Even said so in the tweet. Please try harder and maybe read the context two or three times.

My reference was to Trump's decision regarding the investigation and your point that Trump has "concluded" there was no collusion. He doesn't get to "conclude." Sheesh, I need crayons sometimes with you.

Pack once again you flunk reading comprehension. That was a metaphorical reference. I’m guessing not a scholar-athlete?

Pack actually he made a fool of himself by turning back around and signing it. You can be such a policy idiot at times and this is one of those times.

Apparently Trump had no clue what was going on and someone from the Freedom Caucus must have finally clued him in. The details about the wall funding were known earlier this week when Trump said he'd sign the bill. This morning, it's like he has woken up into a new world. Oh, if we only had a president who actually reads and doesn't rely on Fox News to get his daily briefings.

I would have done the same thing as Mueller. The linkages between Cambridge Analytica and members of the Trump campaign team are strong (Bannon had a stake in the company). The company gleaned its data through research provided by a Russian-American professor who also did work for the Russian government. There are other ties that have been exposed from CA to Russia, which would drive Mueller to follow these trails....One likely scenario is that CA provided the psychographic profiles to the Russian troll factors who could then leverage the information in targeting respective groups in messaging which we know happened. That would be a strong link of collusion that Mueller would need to help get to the heart of his investigation. If that link is discovered, this thing is over and Trump will be scrambling....Now you can see why Trump is pushing so hard to end the investigation. It could easily be getting too close to the facts of collusion and he's getting worried. He does seem to be employing a bunkering down mentality recently and making erratic decisions.

BM, yep. They talk a mean talk, but are pretty much worse than Democrats. Looking at the president's budget, as presented on the WH website, the debt would grow by $4.5 trillion over 4 year and $7 trillion over 10 years. Of course, Congress has their own plans and helped scale back some of Trump's follies such as funding for the useless wall. But this only gets us through September, meaning even tougher talks will be had right before the general election. It will be the only meaningful legislation passed the rest of this year, showing how ineffective this president and Republican Congress are.

Reading through the US list and the current Chinese list, it's prett evident our administration flunked Econ 101. To start with, no one wins in a trade war. It makes for great press, but supply chain economics, especially in this ever connected world, are not in our favor. The Chinese list included items that are produced in the Midwest and rural areas such as pork and recycled aluminum. The Chinese hit at Trump's base. They are smart....Our list? "White House officials say they will try to minimize any price increases for American shoppers. Instead, they suggested Thursday that the tariffs would mostly target products that businesses, rather than consumers, buy: computers, information technology products, industrial machinery and aircraft parts."...Let's be clear. Those items focused on "business" will impact consumers, especially when you look at technology. We innovate on technology in the US, but rely on supply chains overseas to help make and assemble the technology. Those prices will go up and the costs will be passed on to consumers....Regardless, Trump's little econ folly had a real impact on Americans yesterday as the markets fell 700 points and today doesn't look any better based on opening bells in other markets. Our country is not some reality TV show Trump can play around with. I've never seen a more idiotic presidency than with Trump....I know the right wingers called Obama's presidency idiotic, but I'm starting to see why. They couldn't figure out what a true functional economy was if it ran over them. They call rational decision making idiotic and chaotic calamity genius. The Trump demographic.

Ah, the neophytic ignorance of DDDK. Different times and different relationship. When Obama congratulated Putin, there was not the level of interference we have now from Russia in our nation. There were opportunities to improve relations. The message to Trump now is in light of a more aggressive Russia who has proven to be a major adversary....Your attempt to make a point shows more your lack of international relations than anything.

moz, compared with Trump absolutely. I'm amazed at all the idiots like yourself who voted for Trump and continue to support him. As I said, NORMAL people don't behave that way.
