It's an official statement from the President of the USA. Yes it is in tweet form but it is a statement from our President.

Gee, no new law? No new Executive Order? More intentional lies, and misleading info from the OP?

Since when did this become okay?

Yup. We know why. The left is so dishonest.
Because its'a separate and rather unrelated point. (That's why His Orangeness used the word "Also".) Obviously, you'd much, much rather talk about that.

So try, if you have it in you, to address the fact that His Orangeness issues orders directly to US companies that they're to "immediately start looking for an alternative to China".

This is so terrible that it is beyond description....he has to be truly insane (perhaps dementia combined with other things)....now.

Terrible. Watching this is sad.

And when do we take what he says as serious or as policy?

Trump and his fans are using this tactic of saying he's trolling, he's just grandstanding, blah blah -- as a way of defending Trump's erratic and chaotic approach to serious policies of international trade, foreign diplomacy, immigration etc.

So now we have a President who has no credibility in anything he says.

Is he testing waters, having a tantrum, just sounding off, trolling, who knows?

And the fact some folks defend that kind of irrational approach to serious policies and governing this country is fascinating

So - what does "hereby ordered" mean? Is it just old-man ramblings?

I think I like the timeline I'm living in:


Team Red: Pro-intellectual property, pro-US manufacture, anti-fentanyl importing, reverse outsourcing
Team Blue: Orange Man Bad, pro-Chinese, pro-outsourcing


It's a beautiful thing.


You know bolshies, he's picking battles you can't win. It's probably best to stick to men-in-dresses and environmental issues, at least the last one doesn't make you look silly.

One is legal the other is not.

If he ordered companies to release less pollution you'd have a point...
BUT HE ORDERED THEM TO RELEASE MORE.....

So any "saving of people or the economy" is off the table. We are just talking about one crazy dude lashing out because he has been beat so bad. Not to say it is hard to beat him because he loses even to himself.
