If you ever needed evidence of the group think... Trump says "let's buy Greenland," and suddenly all the Trumpers who never in their life even considered the existence of Greenland are all tripping over themselves to line up and parrot the party line... "Greenland...oh yeah!...of course we TOTALLY should get that.."

Do you think you might be exaggerating, just a wee bit?

The Chinese do not think the idea is outlandish. Denmark is a very close ally?

It is impossible to buy Greenland, Canada, or Australia. Regardless of the diplomatic channels chosen by the United States, it is not possible to buy a country.

Once he had this idea in his head, it was impossible to save him some embarrassment.

You don't have a clue what you are talking about as far as the Commonwealth is concerned. But go ahead, carry on.

Glad to see that President Trump is, once again, controlling the topic of discussion. He is a master at it.

He's the master of chaos.

Hardly something one wants from a President.

Not exactly. It seems to be the Queen of Denmark who is speaking to the EU, Canada and other countries about diplomatic challenges with the president of the united states.

It seems that the US president has gone off the rails and the chosen one's people are like the crowd who cheered the emperor in his new clothes.

Trump is not controlling anything. He is being ridiculed around the planet.

Why is Donald Trump actively lobbying to bring Russia back into the G8? Trump is not only allowing problems to fester, he is actively pouring fuel to the fire. Essentially green-lighting Russian aggression and expansionism.
One thing that can not be denied is that Putin is one smart SOB. He didn't get that position based on his looks, he KNEW Trump would be a perfect pawn and Putin could play him like a fiddle. Oh, sure , occasionally, Trump pretends like he is doing something to go against Putin, but that is orchestrated in one of their secret little phone conversations to throw people off.

Trump is in Putin's pocket, and I suspect Putin has some incriminating evidence against Trump. They wanted Trump to win, and they are playing it to the hilt.

Putin factors into the discussion because the G7 is planned and Trump wants to make it G8 by inviting Russia to the table. He shuns the European Union and embraces Russia and North Korea. NATO has always protected free thinking. Trump is not protecting NATO.
