Strangerland JAN. 31, 2017 - 03:39PM JST And if people agree with what he's doing, why has his disapproval rating shot up in the past few days: http://fortune.com/2017/01/29/donald-trump-approval-rating-gallup/
So your source is from 1,500 adults via telephone poll? I understand your problem. Trump's disapproval rating has increased 6 points in the last 4 days, according to the poll. As of Jan. 28, about 51% of Americans polled disapproved of Trump, up from 45% on Jan. 22 — six days prior to the most recent results. By contrast, about 42% approve of the job he's doing, a more moderate change compared to the 45% who approved of him on Jan. 22.
To obtain its results, Gallup surveys about 1,500 adults daily via telephone, and has a margin of error of plus or minus three percentage points.
Stay away from fake news.

New Rasmussen Poll Reveals Silent Majority Approves Of Immigration Ban
While vocal, and often violent, disaffected Hillary protesters may get a lot of media attention, a new Rasmussen poll out today reveals that the silent majority of Americans, men and women who don't have time to protest 24 hours a day because they actually go to work to provide for their families, support Trump's temporary immigration ban from 7 mostly-Muslim countries in the Middle East and Africa. In fact, per the new poll, 57% of likely U.S. voters actually approve of the ban while only 33% were opposed.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 57% of Likely U.S. Voters favor a temporary ban on refugees from Syria, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen until the federal government approves its ability to screen out potential terrorists from coming here. Thirty-three percent (33%) are opposed, while 10% are undecided.
Similarly, 56% favor a temporary block on visas prohibiting residents of Syria, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen from entering the United States until the government approves its ability to screen for likely terrorists. Thirty-two percent (32%) oppose this temporary ban, and 11% are undecided.
This survey was taken late last week prior to the weekend protests against Trump’s executive orders imposing a four-month ban on all refugees and a temporary visa ban on visitors from these seven countries.

frontandcentre JAN. 31, 2017 - 03:03PM JST US citizens are more likely to face terrorist threats as a consequence of this unjust ban than they would have been if the existing safeguards had continued to be applied.
The U.S. was refusing entry to many Muslims long before Trump took office. The fact remains that these countries were first formally singled out as potential threats under Obama, not Trump.

TigersTokyoDome JAN. 31, 2017 - 02:42PM JST He is just playing on uneducated concerns linking unemployment with immigration and terrorism with Muslims.
His poll is close to 56 percent approval. America ask almost nothing of immigrants any more. People do not care whether they come legally and will obey the law once they’re here. They have no concern whether they can support themselves, or whether they will become wards of the state. They can hate or love America. If an immigrant commits a crime against his hosts, they would commit a greater crime by sending ungracious guest home. Remember, Obama send 36,000 home three years ago. Citizenship as a cherished privilege has utterly vanished. So has any idea of gratitude. A hallowed notion of legality, of being more law-abiding even than native-born Americans, has disappeared among immigrants.

Trump’s isolationist ideology has three components, opposition to U.S. alliances, opposition to free trade and support for authoritarianism. If translated into policy in a Trump administration, could do away with the liberal international order that the U.S. helped design after WWII and has led ever since.

There is a long process for refugees to make it to the U.S. Most of them are first screened by the UN high commissioner for refugees, which then refers them to various countries, including the U.S. The U.S. government then screens them through multiple intelligence databases, along with interviews and biometric identity checks. The entire process typically takes 18 to 24 months.There are no foolproof systems. but the current system is strong and there is no evidence any terrorists have made such an attempt thus far.

tinawatanabeDEC. 30, 2016 - 02:33PM JSTsfjp330 - Shrine visit is Japan's most important culture, nothing to do with trade or business.
As a government it is in their duties to acknowledge the wrongdoings of their forefathers and help prevent such things from occurring again. Unfortunately, the same history has countless, consistent denial by high-ranking Japanese officials denying that sadistic war time crimes ever took place. The real message of the war criminals being enshrined at Yasukuni is that no matter what you do, no matter how much suffering you inflict, if you have Japanese blood in your veins you are ok. On the other hand if you are foreigner, no matter how much they have suffered it is not important, you are not Japanese. Considering the suffering inflicted on neighboring Asian countries by Japan is it so hard to call them the 'invasions' that they are rather than 'advances'? If Hiroshima and Nagasaki are crimes then surely Japan's wartime actions are also crimes, why is it so easy for Japanese people to acknowledge A-bomb victims and so hard to acknowledge Asian victims of Japan's wartime aggression? Simple, The A-bomb victims were Japanese and therefore important and the others were foreign and therefore less than human and unimportant. That is the underlying fact that is hard to move beyond that for Japan.

The response was to call for a cease fire. If that constitutes silence, then it applies to all parties. Also, the territories conquered by the Arab states were not part of the self-declared State of Israel which the quote might imply.
Until settlement takes place, U.S. should stop funding Israel of 38 billion for next 10 years.

Strangerland DEC. 30, 2016 - 01:31PM JST Obama has been doing his job as president. Trump put up his own walls, by making statements that are at odds with decades of American policy, when he is supposed to step into and continue that American policy. If he wasn't so out there, nothing Obama has done would be putting up any walls.
Huh? Where have you been? Obama is a weak leader. Obama, is incapable of providing the necessary leadership strengths. In this case it includes both domestic and foreign leadership. A strong leader knows how to chose his or her support staff to provide the highest degree of strength to complement their leadership to which Obama failed miserably. Anyone without prejudice would accept the problems of Obama's presidency as weakness in leadership, unpreparedness, incompetence and in general lack of understanding in problem solving both before and after problems.

Regarding Japan’s attitudes towards China, let’s not forget the many billions of dollars in direct payment and loan assistance which Japan has provided to China over many decades, and which China has eagerly taken to finance its development. It seems odd that China conveniently forgot past aggressions from Japan when billions of money was flowing its way. China’s continuing problems with its neighbors go far beyond its relations with Japan. How do you think China is where they are today? Technology that was provided by Japan?
How time has changed. It may seem strange today but Mao Zedong discouraged public discourse about the Japanese invasion and waived reparations. During his reign, Nanking was far from becoming Chinese target for Japanese brutality. Why Japan became a easy target? This was when new communist leaders, transforming their country into a market economy, first began to face the problems of uneven growth, which included social unrest on a huge scale. Honoring the memories of Sino-Japanese War became main focus to the post-Cold War Chinese strategy of finding new foils internationally and fresh ideological legitimacy at home.
