    So... Trump is threatening anyone who stays in the Iran deal with sanctions...

    ...meanwhile cosying up to china [who he threatened with sanctions], wanting them to prop up ZTE who are in the trouble they're in because they violated sanctions imposed on iran...

    Given the whole Stormy Daniels thing it isn't hard to see where he gets the idea from that cheaters deserve to be rewarded:lol:

    According to the White House, the death of over 55 Palestinians during protests at the Gaza Strip is apparently nothing but a "gruesome propaganda attempt" by the Palestinians.

    And just to be clear this isn't some anonymous White House aid in a casual conversation behind closed doors, the above is directly from the deputy press secretary Raj Shah at the daily White House press briefing, on TV.

    Is it just me who finds it rather amusing to watch how Trump is dealing with someone of a similar attitude as him, i wonder whose going to come out tops in this game of teenage school yard style of how to conduct yourself and treat others.

    Trump Orders Help For Chinese Phone-Maker After China Approves Money For Trump Project
    Trump will profit from Indonesian resort project that will get $500 million in Chinese loans in a deal sealed days before before his tweet ordering help for ZTE.

    Thought I'd already posted this.
    Under any other president this would've been a bombshell. Here it's... nothing.
    It's a bit frightening how being such a shady character that there's a different scandal coming out every few days apparently makes you impervious to scandals individually. There's just so much to criticize that criticizing Trump has almost become stale, unoriginal, boring. He has oversaturated people's attention spans and gets away with anything in the end. I'd say he's a brilliant tactician if I wasn't already sure Trump's a complete moron mindlessly bumbling his way from one stupid crisis into the next.

    FTFY. ;)

    There's also the alleged million dollar payments made to Mr Trump's personal fixer (Cohen).

    The electorate tends to vote for someone who is a little smarter than themselves. :p

    Drumpf has pulled out of the US/North Korea summit.

    Well, that's a bigly surprise to nobody.

    CBA to link his letter he tweeted - couldn't spell KJU's name correctly, talks about the US massive and powerful nuclear capabilities.... blah blah

    For some reason "tremendous" sounds like a really strange word to be using in international diplomacy and that's ignores the bragging about how you've got massive nukes.

    One things for sure it certainly plays into NK's narrative that America is the enemy and can't be trusted.

    Seeing as they've now dumped an agreed deal with Iran and a summit with NK they're not looking reliable.

    America can't be trusted though... And under Trump I don't think they want to be... they just want to be feared and/or obeyed...


    Trust is for suckers.

    Well, I did not see that coming.

    (Translation: I totally saw that coming.)

    I guess so but I'm not sure that's the sort of dynamic you want when dealing with temperamental people who have their finger on a nuclear button.

    I can understand some hesitation on KJU's part when the US National Security Advisor literally said he wants to implement the "Libya model" for North Korea...

    It's exactly the kind of dynamic Trump wants though... Do as i say or i reach for my belt Nukes/Trade War/Lawyers...

    ...and because it's usually worked for him until now [or at least in his head it has], he thinks it'll work now.

    It says something when NK comes across as the more mature of the two.

    To be fair that isn't a particularly hard contest to "win".
    If KJ tried to brag about being more mature than Trump it would be like trying to advertise a horror movie with the tag line "scarier than the average tesco commercial".
