I wonder if trump is playing a tactical game in telling the squad to go home. Nothing racist was said. Butt, the interpretation is there.
But is he playing a game where prior to his, um, re election he has forced the democrats to set the wagons up around them and forcing the democrats to put the four front and center of the democratic party thus discouraging voters from voting the dems,
I think he’s being smart.
Thoughts?#1725352paulinemMemberMember since: July 8, 2006

I think Trump is an arrogant embarrassment clown to the US. The sooner he has gone US will be better off. I just want to know WHY do we have so much US news on our media. NZ is NOT part of the USA. Let the US residents stew in their own stupidity of electing him as president.
What I cannot understand is the power this clown has in a supposedly a democratic country of millions of residents?
Here in NZ Jacinda could declare say etc what she likes BUT unless her cabinet agrees with her it is all hot air. Where as Trump declares sanctions against Iran and it is all on?? Why doesn’t he need to get congress etc to agree first to his declarations ?#1725360woofsMemberMember since: March 1, 2017

We have Mmp. America doesn’t.
And america matters to the world. Markets. Economy. If the u s economy tanked the rest of us may well follow.
If america let the nukes go, oor responded, we may be affected. Directly through bombings or indirectly through nuclear radiation and the weather. One way or another we could be affected. For that reasons I take an interest in world politics.#1725368halcyonMemberMember since: May 4, 2014

Is Trump really the clown that our media portray him to be?
Unfortunately our media rely on the CNN for most of their content. And the CNN is in bed with the Democrats. During the Presidential elections the CNN was known as Clinton’s News Network.
By comparison the Conservative media paint a completely different picture. For the first time in years the American economy is growing and unemployment is falling. Therefore Trump must be doing something right.

Halycon do you support Trumps demand for the world to follow his US trade sanctions demand for Iran? Why the sanctions because Iran MAY have nuclear weapons !
If you support this clown sanctions against Iran then how do you feel about US trade etc support for Israel whom does it is known have nuclear weapons.
Isnt the real reason Iran is a baddie to the US is that they are giving logistic support to the displaced Palestine’s especially the residents of Gaza ( you know the people whom have been regularly murdered by the Israel Defense Force taking potshots at them .
The Palestine and the Gazan are same people whose land Israel STOLE from them in their residence snd ownership of the land by their families for possibly a thousand years !!
Halycon isnt the real reason that Trump is obsessed over Iran is to do a nanana to Obarma whom arranged a peace treaty with Iran, when in power!#1725428Hero42MemberMember since: July 18, 2008

Most economists consider the growth in the American economy to be down to Obama’s actions not Trump’s.
Obama achieved 5.1% growth in the second quarter of 2014, the best Trump has managed is 4.2%in the second quarter of 2018.
The growth in the DOW is an extension of the growth under Obama at much the same rate.
The unemployment rate falls are also an extension of the falls under Obama at much the same rate.

What to do about “The Donald”?
I meet a lot of Americans in my job. Hundreds in fact.
When getting into conversation with them I steer clear of politics.
Then, after a few minutes, they will often say (words to the effect) ” we won’t mention politics!”
Clearly they are either a fan of Trump (because from previous experience non-Americans have made it clear they don’t like him) or they are embarrassed to have him as President.
His fight on trade with China has (in part) caused the price of raw logs we export to that country to tank from about $150/160.00 a tonne to around $100/110.00.
At the last Presidential election Americans were faced with two un-electable candidates. In a country with such a big population it is obvious that a complete overhaul of their political system is well overdue.
As that does not look likely any time soon, it makes next year a very interesting time for American politics.

Very interesting documentary.
I wonder if they still have the information to repeat the tactics at the next election or have they lost that advantage now.
