He such a terrible businessman that American banks and financiers will have nothing to do with them.

Trump is now bankrolled by the Bank of China, Deutsche bank (known for and convicted of laundering Russian money), drug cartels in Panama, ...

Trump is under a lot of pressure besides what's best for Americans.
How is he under pressure, american banks are the enemy, china is the enemy and so is half of south america. All of these problems go away with an energy weapon iron dome and about 300 tac nuke cruise missles. You go in with swat teams to the US banks and take back the bail out money, you do it through the barrel of a gun and toss them in guantonimo bay. All this supposed "leverage" that china and banks etc have is all artifical, all that matters are the air defense systems and tac nukes.


These problems you speak of are all artificial, Trump was operating in an artificaial system, he now has a chance to fix it before we become completely socialist and end up having a massive civil war in 30-40 years.


He is in a position he does not have to pander to anyone, he can threaten violence and gain compliance, thats how the USA has done things since its inception. It has only been recently that we have started pandering and allowing H1B's to take high level jobs and outsource skilled labor. Back in the day we would bring Indians and chineese in as disposable mine workers to die, now they are taking air conditioned office jobs.


It is a bit unsettling that we have not seen a mass cancelation of all work visas from divergant nations (mid east, china, etc) and massive tarrifs on the same said nations. I dont know what Trump is waiting for but those 2 things are key, they need to be swift and brutal and any employer caught harboring someone staying on a canceled visa needs to do time.


These things can all be done but we are still pandering and it makes me want to puke.


You can poo poo this all you want but if I have a tac nuke drone loitering over you, you will comply and that is all, there will be no argument and your opinion wont matter.

I doubt in an earlier, more dignified era that generals would speak so bluntly and public like this.

There is the first amendment but it just seems disrespectful to the commander and chief to give speeches passively like that.
I too wondered why publicly say that . Has to be a reason ,,,,

Didn't he solemnly swear to obey the orders a President when he enlisted decades ago?

Why are generals who have been in the service for decades making unfiltered comments like that?

Tremendously disturbing and unprofessional of him to say that while the world is listening. It is almost as if he in a very passive way is trying to cheapen and demean President Trump.

What strange times we live in? I don't know if he passively implying anything about the current President but it just seems strange to me.

Seems like the Pentagon is even at a loss for word's over the general's comments. It just seems very inappropriate for a general to make those sort of comments when the world is watching.

Seems like he is making passive remarks and demeaning our President. Isn't the President of the Commander of Chief?
I would hope any general would abide by the code and refuse any illegal order.


Has the statement has been taken out of context, cheery picked to make it sound like an insult to trump? If as presented, a direct insult to Trump, undermining the security of the USA, the general should be at least fired if not prosecuted.

President Trump is almost always right. His comments or Tweet's have never caused an issue. He is a brilliant man and thinks everything through before he makes public comments.

I am sure the general is a very decorated servant but I think we all can agree that President Trump is a man of unquestioned brilliance.




This is either the dumbest or funniest post I've ever read on here so far!! Just not sure which it is.

You don't know what you're talking about. Maybe if you were a little better informed, you'd understand why sane, intelligent people are so worried about this ignorant madman.
No, he really cannot....he cannot say launch and people start pushing buttons "just because."

I am far more informed than you, just look at your statement. My old BN Commander held the "football" for Bush....

There are checks and balances, because YOUR president is mad, does not mean he can blow up the world, no matter how many times CCN, MSNBC have stated it....or worry about it.

Intelligent people know he cannot say launch and everyone starts pushing buttons....PROTOCOL......

Wrong....trump cannot say launch and people start pushing buttons...period...PROTOCOL....

Why is he saying launch? Others are looking at radars, nothing coming...why? Checks and balances...

Wow, just seen the video...the left is freaking idiots....

Quote:
I think some people think we’re stupid. We’re not stupid people. We think about these things a lot. When you have this responsibility, how do you not think about it? I provide advice to the president, he will tell me what to do. And if it’s illegal, guess what’s going to happen? I’m going to say, “Mr. President, that’s illegal.” And guess what he’s going to do? He’s going to say, “What would be legal?” And we’ll come up with options, with a mix of capabilities to respond to whatever the situation is, and that’s the way it works. It’s not that complicated.
I'll see if I can find the video, but above are the EXACT words.....

Damn the left twisting words to fit their needs....

I think many on the left simply don't understand that no President has the power to simply order Nukes to be launched. No generals or Admirals would simply stand by and allow it.

Very simplified. Just because Trump becomes annoyed with say Morocco, doesn't mean that he can order a submarine to launch a nuclear strike.

once again you need to educate yourself. have you checked into the bankruptcy laws? have you checked into the types of bankruptcies some of trumps businesses filed? all those what 4 or 6 bankruptcies were reorganization bankruptcies, meaning they got legal protection from their creditors so they could reorganize, pay their bills, and go back to staying in operation and making money. as i recall NONE of the businesses were liquidated.

and as i also recall, when trump bought those businesses they were already in the throws of dying, and trump thus SAVED those businesses.

perhaps if you would stop looking at trump with hate filled eyes, you might learn a few things, and realize that he is in fact far better than the alternatives we had to choose from.
