Trump tweeted in March 2018 that trade wars are "good and easy to win" ...



When does the "good" and "easy" start?

We don't agree often, but we agree on this.

"hereby ordered", that doesn't leave much room for interpretation. Did US industry get nationalized while I wasn't looking?
Is he making Ivanka bring all her **** back to the U.S.? If I were China, I'd kick her out.

And killed millions of people. Yeah, that would be hilarious.

I love Twitter.... it's like owning your own newspaper--- without the losses. Donald J. Trump tweet November 2012

“I’d rather just let that build up and just keep it @realDonaldTrump, it’s working — and the tweeting, I thought I’d do less of it, but I’m covered so dishonestly by the press — so dishonestly — that I can put out Twitter — and it’s not 140, it’s now 140, 280 — I can go bing bing bing and I just keep going and they put it on and as soon as I tweet it out — this morning on television, Fox — “Donald Trump, we have breaking news.” Donald J. Trump quote in interview January 2017.

You really need to keep up. Ivanka has long since shut down her clothing line:

But Trump was already licked...by a guy with his hands tied behind his back. So Trump is trying to throw us all into the path of his loses.

I don't think it is gonna happen but I am glad I converted at least a decent amount to cash. Of course, cash sucks too if we have a madman at the helm.

The Russians and others (even the Chinese) will buy Condos and keep Trump in $$. I don't think the rest of us can claim the same.
Oh, I see. Seems you would rather dis on Trump at the cost of China determining your fate.

This is way beyond who is in power. The name or face doesn't matter. Democrat or republican doesn't matter. This is about protecting the future of - this country.

Sorry to hear you converted to cash. That is just a guarantied way to financially fail.

But no. We get "you are hereby ordered to........." Who does he think he is, the Fuehrer?

He thinks he's "The Chosen One". He said so, as he looked up to the sky.
