Donald J. Trump, 45th US President of the United States

Recommended Posts

So, according to Forbes magazine, Trump's wealth has taken a hit recently. Most of his losses are due to a downturn in the NY realty market, where a lot of his fortune is based, but he also spent 66 million trying to get elected and another 25 million to settle lawsuits.

 

Still, the news wasn't all bad, as that 25 million loss was offset by a gain of the same amount for his Mar a Lago resorts, thanks to "post-election exposure". Hmmm, the president personally profiting off "exposure" that he himself has created....

 

Is that legal?

Aren't almost all construction jobs temporary?  Maybe guys/gals building the wall gain experience, allowing them to earn other building jobs - like fencing?

 

Yes they are all temporary, but what happens after most construction jobs is something tangible after construction is completed. Something that has value such as a home for a family, a hospital for a community, a school for children, a business for customers etc. Building a wall does not have that.

You mean creating temporary construction jobs that won't be there after the wall is completed? I'd much rather invest elsewhere.

Well aren't you Canadian? I doubt we will have to invest in the wall.:P

Your problem is you think I am defending Trump.

 

I'm merely pointing out the hypocrisy in some posters that attack him.

For example,Warhippy on has insightful and authentic posts.  Be more like him.

Hahaha @Toews   ...speaking of passive aggressive @inane  this is it.

When the FBI says there is an active investigation there is a reason for said investigation. You're right it could very well be nothing, but an investigation doesn't start from a conspiracy theory. It starts with enough evidence to warrant further investigation.

Unless your department is rife with Democratic operatives.

Draining the swamp?

 

He did NO such thing and this was his first major lie

Drain the swamp....pffft

He promised to hire "killers" from private enterprise to use their wiles to set the country straight and to drain the swamp in Washington .  So far...we approve. Sorry you misunderstood.

Well since the Russia narrative is dead in the water I am sure the Democrats will be using this information for a new probe into impeachment proceedings.  Should be fun!

So James Comey announcing to the world there's an active investigation into collusion between Trump's campaign and Russia in your mind means it's dead in the water? What?

Well they are still looking for Guccifer 2.0 and Roger Stone has yet to testify so I guess you are right, it's still technically open...

Isn't it possible that Russians have hackers scattered all around the US, where they can access people accounts and change their vote for online voting? To me this seems like a very easy possibility, especially after hearing about the Russian hacker with yahoo accounts. 

 

I remember that morning on Nov 8 and checking the news and tweets and reading stuff about how voting maybe cancelled or postponed due to Russian hacking that day, but nothing really happened and everyone just voted.

Comey says leaks could constitute 'espionage'

 

In a rare public hearing before the House Intelligence Committee, FBI Director James Comey suggested on Monday that recent leaks of classified information to the press are not only criminal – they likely fit the definition of espionage.

 

 

Monday’s hearing was billed as a discussion about the committee's investigation into possible Russian interference during the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign. It quickly became clear, though, that questions about leaks were also weighing heavily on the minds of lawmakers.

"Leaks of classified information are serious, serious federal crimes for a reason," Comey said during his opening statement. He added that those behind the leaks "should be investigated and where possible prosecuted in a way that reflects that seriousness so that people understand it simply cannot be tolerated."

 

Joining Comey for questioning was National Security Agency Director Mike Rogers. During the hearing, lawmakers discussed the leaking of information about former White House National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, who was forced to resign last month after less than a month on the job.

Intel Committee Chair Devin Nunes (R-CA) told Comey that he remains "extremely concerned" about what he called "widespread illegal leaks.” When Nunes asked whether giving classified information to the press could be considered a violation of the Espionage Act, the FBI director responded with a flat out "yes."

You make a good point. They both will go to any lengths to defend Donald Trump.
