Just imagine what Trump’s approval rating would be if he had a good economy.

Just imagine what Trump's poll numbers would be if did not tweet like a drunk, act like a mental patient and speak like a dunce.

How does President Trump's approval ratings compare to those of other G7 country leaders, who he is meeting with in France this weekend? Actually he is more popular than 5 out of 6, with the only exception being Japanese Premier Shinzo Abe. Here is the list, followed by an article:

48.8% - Japanese Premier Shinzo Abe
43.3% - American President Donald Trump
41.0% - Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau
32.0% - German Chancellor Angela Merkel
31.0% - British Prime Minister Boris Johnson
28.0% - French President Emmanuel Macron
Just Resigned Last Week - Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte

So President Trump is doing pretty good compared to the rest of this lot.

I wonder if they think very well of him, when they return home and the bedbugs with them.

Well you started a thread about Trumps popularity. I’m sure those G7 members just love Trump, why did you start this thread I know you weren’t trolling.

Not just bedbugs. There was also a roach infestation. So bad they considered closing down the kitchen. Thats our boy.
Go to wonder if world leaders will show up in Miami in August to a resort in an industrial area under the flight path with a reputation for bedbug and roach infestations.

Since Trump doesn't bother to show up for sessions, or when he does has nothing productive to contribute, why bother?

Security concerns aside, the a G7 meeting at Trump's Doral sounds like a nightmare.

If they are lucky, the bedbugs will be the worst of it. As it is, they will be looking at unprecedented corrruption in an American President, who in one of his almost trivial corrupt acts spends tax dollars on pretend “official” visits and weekly vast expenditures to play golf. It is corrupt to steer the G-7 to a resort that he owns just as it was corrupt for him to plan the trip to Ireland before he bothered to give it a trifling “official” purpose.

Note, this was the guy who bitched incessantly about Obama playing golf, as it turns out for a tiny fraction of his and most of it was at Washington area military coursed. And Obama didn’t lie about it - Trump does, seeking to conceal his golf playing at his own courses from the people who count these things.

The visits to his Golf Clubs are corrupt. He owns the clubs. He benefits from his spending there and from the White House staff traveling with him. The episode at his money-losing Doonbeg Course in Ireland was typical. The White House planned the trip and then told Irish Taoiseach (PM) Varadker that he was coming and they would meet, not at any of the places Ireland proudly shows off, but at his club. (In effect he said, I’m playing golf here, you’re just an excuse).

Varadker said protocol (a word Trump knows nothing about) would not allow him to come to Trump’s club for an official meeting - the request was demeaning. Trump said told Varadker he would have to come meet him at the airport. They met in a Shannon Airport room, Varadker left, having been forced by the superior power into providing the cover for Trump corruption.

The Secret Service made its usual requests for security, which included Garda officers the entire 27 miles of highway from Shannon to Doonbeg, inspection of all overpasses (and manning during potential car travel), manhole covers and their welding shut and then unwelding, construction of sniper towers around the Doonbeg resort at Irish expense etc. etc. The Garda estimated the expense was 12 million Euro, severely hampering their flexibility for Irish security. (The number is about the same for the planned trip of Pence to Doonbeg (at least some of his family was from the area) and the security cost is $11 million. Not much money in a White House that Squanders money daily in the imperial Trump regime. The Garda is warning the Irish government of a crisis in its funding with the Pence visit.


Trump went from Doonbeg to London for his State Visit, which was unpopular with widespread
Demonstrations including billboards reminding Trump that his approval rating in the UK was 21 percent while Obama was still in the 70s. His disapproval in Ireland was 84 % and his approval 12 percent - widely reported in the Irish newspapers and demonstrated by anti-Trump protests across the Republic.

He could not be bothered to spend a night away from his golf course for the D-Day observance and the few surviving vets. But he did make arrangements in advance with Fox to hold nasty political “news” interviewing, using the military cemetery as the backdrop, right rousing protests.

Trump went back to Ireland and isolated Doonbeg, an impoverished area almost completely reliant on the Trump Golf Course.

Trump never set foot in Ireland with the exception of two locations, his golf club and Shannon airport. Never used the carefully protected roadway but used WH helicopters. The Irish press reported on the demonstrations against Trump. The Irish were glad to see him gone and it was awkward for Varadker.

Going to Ireland after Trump left, with all the warmth of Irish welcome and hospitality, almost everyone brought up how much they like Obama, the Bushes, Clinton, and further back with older citizens. The dislike for Trump is clear - you don’t have to look for it. Older people in particular have close memories in a small country going back decades.

We travel regularly, several times a year, in retirement and did for decades before. Americans are still welcome, but today is different. There was great angst about the Iraq War and George Bush, but it wasn’t personal. With Trump, they dislike his presidency and his oafish behavior.

So have at it deniars of all.
