Posted in: Trump faces limits of go-it-alone stance at G7 summit See in context

From Mattis’ resignation letter:

We must do everything we can to advance an international order that is most conducive to our security, prosperity and values and we are strengthened in this effort by solidarity of our alliances.

Because you have the right to have a Secretary of Defense whose views are better aligned with yours on these and other subjects, I believe it is right for me to step down from my position.

They should be getting pretty close to perfecting their missile by now.

Posted in: Trump vows response to China tariffs on $75 bil of U.S. goods See in context

My only guess is that he believed he would just start smashing China over the head and they would finally bow down and sign a humiliating trade deal.

I honestly think that was his strategy.

You've never had a majority. You didn't even win the popular vote. Odd position to use here.

North Korean foreign minister calls Pompeo 'poisonous plant'

Serrano: Confirmation Pompeo is doing his job.

When the other side is talking about you like that, it's confirmation that negotiations have been a complete and utter failure.

as how Obama

The white surrender flag is up. Can't point to any good Trump has done here, so talk about Obama instead.

Just report on this when some progress comes. Otherwise, we’ll just assume they are still a million miles apart.

Trump can't win without a strong economy. There aren't enough racists to carry him.

Posted in: Trump's message to G7 leaders this weekend: Be more like U.S. See in context

He's too out of touch for stuff like this. My best is he will start a useless rift with a couple of allies and spend the rest of the time lobbying for Putin's return.

So he announced possible tax cuts, then changes his mind the next day. Stable.

Trump is just testing the waters for 2020. As I've said before, with no accomplishments, he will make it about immigration and will use racism

OMG:

"Denmark is a very special country with incredible people, but based on Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen’s comments, that she would have no interest in discussing the purchase of Greenland, I will be postponing our meeting scheduled in two weeks for another time. The Prime Minister was able to save a great deal of expense and effort for both the United States and Denmark by being so direct. I thank her for that and look forward to rescheduling sometime in the future!"

This is Trump diplomacy. It's just insane.

Ouch.

hes not taking the easy way out.

No, he's taking the stupid way out. He thought he would just strong arm China and they would instantly bend to his will then he'd take a victory lap. Now we're stuck in a situation where both sides have to save face to make a deal, and they are a million miles apart.

The support I hear most often is, "at least he's doing something" and the usual surrender flag of, "the previous administrations." Why? Because you have no progress to point to.

He is simply inept at this level.

I bet Trump will have the largest budget deficit in the history of the United States as he tries to give away the farm to hold on to power.

I also bet he will try every dirty trick in the book to get rid of the Chairman of the Fed and install a loyalist.

Ad he won't even think twice about doing it.

No need to get upset, Serrano. Unless that group describes you.

Should be you can find one that has her at over 50%.

Sure. 50% is much higher than anything Trump has done, but that's cool.

I don't follow. Are you saying that since Iran exists I can't criticize Israel?

"It's all about the Benjamins baby," Omar tweeted in reply.

Ah, I see. Because of the stereotype about Jewish people and money. I can see how one can make that link, but it certainly isn't limited to just Jewish people. Pretty much every political group has been accused of having too much influence over politicians, and money is usually mentioned. But in this day and age you can't make the link with Israel. I get it.

Her response:

“Anti-Semitism is real and I am grateful for Jewish allies and colleagues who are educating me on the painful history of anti-Semitic tropes. My intention is never to offend my constituents or Jewish Americans as a whole.”

Nice apology. You don't see that often from other members of government.

But Omar later dug in when she suggested pro-Israel interests pushed members of Congress to pledge allegiance to a "foreign country," drawing further outrage from her colleagues.

This one really isn't a big deal.

I thought there was more meat on the bone. We've all heard that stereotype and people in government have said it but this is the first time I can remember Israel banning someone from entry, but maybe I'm wrong?
