A round up of Trumpian events 🍊🍊🍊


#4240

When the US pulls out of the World others will fill the gaps:

"Chinese President Xi Jinping arrived Havana on Monday for his first state visit to Cuba since taking office.

In Cuba, Xi will hold talks with Cuban leader Raul Castro to draw up a blueprint for the future development of China-Cuba relations at a strategic height and from a long-term perspective.

The two sides will also sign documents of cooperation covering economy, trade, agriculture, bio-technology, culture and education."

A future Cuban missile crisis in the making?


#4241

No oil rigs right next to Mar-a-Lago. Sad!

#4243


Most likely he’ll start the six month countdown clock for pulling out, and then find that there’s little support in Congress for that. After six months, he’ll hit it again like a snooze button.

He’s playing a zero-sum game hoping that investors will avoid Canada and Mexico and invest in the USA, but that tactic will screw up business planning in a major way and hurt everyone. If the chaos uncertainty is high, it’s possible that Canada and Mexico will start their countdown clocks, calling his bluff.

Will somebody think about the Popcorn?!

Mexico is the largest US corn buyer and if they go somewhere else for the stuff US corn growers are screwed. How’s that winning going 'murica?


#4245

Don’t worry, Trump has a plan for moving all that corn: Taco trucks on every corner!

ETA: Trump’s experience in β€œScrew you!” business deals is a major handicap in trade deals, where you bargain hard, but the deal benefits everyone. (His loose grasp of the trade numbers is just sauce on the cow patty.)


#4246

This should be every new conference.


#4247

#4248

So, β€œThe Big Lie” component of Fascism is not just one big one it’s multiples of 10?

#4250

β€œMnuchin thanked Walmart for their earlier announcement of starting wage increases, employee bonuses, and expanded benefits, citing GOP tax cuts. He did not mention that Walmart also announced it’s closing 63 of its Sam’s Club stores.” -Axios

WhoCryingNow

You’re welcome. Carry on. :grin:


#4256

#4257

They kept saying β€œshithole” on NPR today, without bleeping out shit.


#4258

I saw in a clip that OTOH, Colbert got bleeped out while saying it.

Maybe the word is gradually moving toward acceptability in β€œfamily-friendly” U.S. media. Thanks Trump, I guess? :expressionless:
