The Donald Trump Thread: President of the United States of America.

Recommended Posts

Sadly, that is the absolute least concerning thing happening right now.  The stock market tumbling is much more of a immediate issue.  Confidence in the US is so low with this loser in power.  Think how alarming this is considering the substantial tax cuts corporations have been given under this administration.  What an unmitigated shit show that just keeps on giving.

Trump asked a kid if he still believes in Santa.

Fuckin hell bro. 

"What's Santa bringing you this year?" Done. Even if the kid doesn't, we all know the unwritten code. We say it. We answer it. It's like when there's 7 urinals in a men's bathroom, you don't go trotting up beside  the one thats being occupied. You go to the furthest one. Unwritten codes in society.

He asked a seven year old if he believed in 'Santa', then said "because at seven, it's marginal, right?".

Then he complained abut how everyone is against him.

Well, at least he didn't ask the Guatemalan children if they believed in healthcare and medical treatment while under US Border detention... that would have been awkward seeing as another died today...

The only thing I will ask you though is on the wall, you and I both have a political problem. My people stand up and say, “Mexico will pay for the wall” and your people probably say something in a similar but slightly different language. But the fact is we are both in a little bit of a political bind because I have to have Mexico pay for the wall – I have to. I have been talking about it for a two year period, and the reason I say they are going to pay for the wall is because Mexico has made a fortune out of the stupidity of U.S. trade representatives. They are beating us at trade and they are beating us at the border, and they are killing us with drugs. Now I know you are not involved with that, but regardless of who is making all the money, billions and billions and billions – some people say more – is being made on drug trafficking that is coming through Mexico. Some people say that the business of drug trafficking is bigger than the business of taking our factory jobs. So what I would like to recommend is – if we are going to have continued dialogue – we will work out the wall. They are going to say, “who is going to pay for the wall, Mr. President?” to both of us, and we should both say, “we will work it out.” It will work out in the formula somehow. As opposed to you saying, “we will not pay” and me saying, “we will not pay.”

Because you and I are both at a point now where we are both saying we are not to pay for the wall. From a political standpoint, that is what we will say. We cannot say that anymore because if you are going to say that Mexico is not going to pay for the wall, then I do not want to meet with you guys anymore because I cannot live with that. I am willing to say that we will work it out, but that means it will come out in the wash and that is okay. But you cannot say anymore that the United States is going to pay for the wall. I am just going to say that we are working it out. Believe it or not, this is the least important thing that we are talking about, but politically this might be the most important talk about. But in terms of dollars – or pesos – it is the least important thing. I know how to build very inexpensively, so it will be much lower than these numbers I am being presented with, and it will be a better wall and it will look nice. And it will do the job.

You know, you look at Israel – Israel has a wall and everyone said do not build a wall, walls do not work — 99.9 percent of people trying to come across that wall cannot get across and more. Bibi Netanyahu told me the wall works. We have also hired at least 15,000 more men and women on the border – patrolling the border very carefully. We just cannot play the game of stupidity anymore. I would love to continue talking. When Jared said, “the deal is off,” I was glad. Jared has a great feeling for the plan, though I know it would be politically much more popular in Mexico and, I think, it will be much less popular for me, to be honest. I think the most popular thing for me would just to put a tariff on the border. But I am willing to see if they can finish up a plan. From what I hear, they have great discussions and it looks good. I guess they have to wait 90 days – there might be a statutory period or something like that and that might be too bad. But that is okay, so we will get Congress involved and let them work through the statutory period. If you want to do that, Enrique, I am good with doing that. And I want to reiterate, you and I will always be friends do not worry."

Today the Gaslighter-in-Chief claimed that he never said Mexico would pay for the wall. 

He in fact said so 212 times during the campaign alone.

He's also just performed a gigantic about-face on the 'idea' of declaring a national emergency vis-a-vis the border wall.

Because he's a great negotiator.

That's why I posted that transcript because of him saying that.

Imagine being the leader of another country and having that convo with the leader of the "greatest nation on earth".  Tells you all you need to know.
