Obviously you don't play golf. The golf course is where all important decision-making, whether its politics or business is made. All business leaders and Presidents play golf.

Wrong. Even this guy disagrees with you: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rPANJQ6O9bU

Obviously you aren't a business leader or president if you think that all important decision-making is made.

The clueless, dangerous embarrassment know as Donald J. Trump has done it again in Brusssels and in the U.K.

His next step is to confer with his Russian mentor in Helsinki. Perhaps his other mentor, Netanyahu, will be there to instruct him how to create more havoc for the USA and world.

Trump claims the EU is a foe on trade and not paying their NATO contributions.

Americans are very happy with Trump right now. You would not know it by reading Yahoo and watching CNN though.

What credible news agencies or polls support this statement?

According to Gallup [1], Trump's average approval rating thus far is 39%. For comparison, other presidents at this time in their first term are as follows:

Barack Obama 46 Jul 2010

George W. Bush 72 Jul 2002

Bill Clinton 43 Jul 1994

George H.W. Bush 62 Jul 1990

Ronald Reagan 42 Jul 1982

Jimmy Carter 40 Jul 1978

Richard Nixon 58 Jul 1970

John Kennedy 68 Jul 1962

Dwight Eisenhower 70 Jul 1954

""This is our six meter-high inflatable of the president of United States as an orange skinned, angry baby with tiny, tiny hands and a constipated, malevolent expression on his face," said "Trump babysitter" Leo Murray."

Stay classy, Leo.

Obama did nothing but give our money away, so they loved him. Trump is trying to make them pay their fair share so they hate him. What's not to understand?

Oh my...

Those comments could be pasted into any story about Trump.

That's all the guy ever does, attempt to play golf (I say attempt because he spends most time in the bunker or looking for the ball in the bushes).

And here I was thinking he complained that Obama played too much golf.

Who cares Trump and May will be gone before any new trade agreement is reached.

rump has got an incredibly high level support here in the US.

45% approval ratings according to the most recent poll. That is nearly as high as the percentage that voted for him first time round. Incredible, just incredible.

Trump told May to sue the EU. He lives in a fantasy world.

He really should mind his own business and keep his greedy nose out of ours.

3 ( +4 / -1 )

May reported in an interview that Trump advised her that the UK should sue the EU over terms of exit rather than negotiate.

Now, clearly, that's Trump's penchant: He'll sue to get himself out of any problem he's gotten himself into (and there have been many).

The difference that, for all of Trump's pretenses at grandeur, he's a relatively small fish, so in many cases, they figure it'd ultimately be cheaper just to let him go.

That is not the case here. Brexit will set a precedent. You're in the EU or you're not, with corresponding consequences. A lawsuit would result in the worst of both worlds, uncertainty extending for years.

Trump's suggestion was so preposterous that the interviewer simply laughed.

TRUMP's 'Carve Out' remarks was a stab in May's back! When she is struggling hard to preserve UK interest in EU but uncle Trump said: 'Hey you better spilt on their face and leave! Otherwise I cares you nomore!' With a friend like this.......

Britain needs to get real. It's economy and esteem in the world is in decline. Leaving the EU will be catastrophic. Brexit will be reversed IMHO. It should cause a national realization of their irrelevance. A lesson needs to be learned. Hopefully, the cost of this lesson won't be too severe. If it is, the British have only themselves to blame.

Which poll shows that?

If you are not basing that statement on polls, what are you basing it on?

Trump has got an incredibly high level support here in the US. CNN is just a joke "news" station now. Just a comedy show.

-11 ( +2 / -13 )

Yes Dango. Trump is a wonderful president. We all support him. And his second term is an absolute certainty. Things are just great now.

-11 ( +1 / -12 )

The world economy is at a 60 year high and unemployment in the US is the lowest in history. Trump is not going anywhere Americans will happily re-elect him under these conditions. And the US economy is about 3X bigger than the EU so he is right.

IF Obama had said this he would be praised as a genius... you people crack me up. Americans are very happy with Trump right now. You would not know it by reading Yahoo and watching CNN though.

Both Trump and May will be out of office before any new trade agreement.

5 ( +7 / -2 )

In an interview with the Daily Mail newspaper, Trump said Britain and the United States should be able to strike a "great trade deal" -- if the final Brexit agreement leaves London free to do so.

Another rag of a paper, despite Dacre leaving it. Not soon enough, it appears.

Trump wants a weakened EU and no NATO. Which is what Putin also wants, oddly enough.

Perhaps both of them can keep their dirty beaks out of Irish, British and European affairs.

"You can't be shut out because we're much bigger than the European Union, we're more important from that standpoint."

That'll change soon enough if this imbecile stays in charge.

You can't be shut out because we're much bigger than the European Union, we're more important from that standpoint.

Tell that to those who work in the Airbus factories.

Somebody said are you friends or enemies? I said well it's too early to say 

Here we go...

Trump says 

Maybe he did say it, maybe he didn't, maybe it's fake news, maybe he was being sarcastic, maybe he was kidding, maybe the MSM (whatever that means) distorted what he might have said, who knows. I'll wait until a Trumpinterpreter, maybe the poster who explained what whop-whop (or was it womp-womp?) meant or another Cult45ist who knows the words of their political messiah by heart would be willing to provide an explanation.

Oh what a surprise - the orange baby is golfing. A true man of his word.
