"Sweden, who would believe this. Sweden. They took in large numbers. They're having problems like they never thought possible. You look at what's happening in Brussels. You look at what's happening all over the world. Take a look at Nice. Take a look at Paris."

 

What kills me is that everyone gives so much attention to Trump's mistakes - like this Sweden one.

 

But nary a word about how all this refugee stuff that's become such a problem for all these European nations has been caused by the U.S. going back to the the Bush/Cheney brainfarted invasion of Iraq and every single U.S. action since. The situation is totally the fault of the U.S. - I don't understand why people aren't screaming that reminder every single day.

 

They'd rather jump on Trump's gaffes. More fun and no repercussions.

Trump Is An International Laughing Stock After Referring To Imaginary Sweden Terror Attack

This is what happens when a president gets his news from Fox. President Donald Trump is being mocked all around the world after he referred to a terrorist attack in Sweden that never happened.

Trump's innuendos and downright lies are red meat to his base-- he's not a pathological liar-- he's a pathological psychological GamePlayer. He's got his people psyched and he's psyched himself.

Sadly for the United States, Trump doesn't give a tinker's damn about what the world thinks about him-- he never has.

Former Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt tweeted, "Sweden? Terror attack? What has he been smoking? Questions abound."
 
Former foreign minister Bildt told Swedish Radio after his initial confounded tweet Sunday that he sees danger in how Trump relates to facts.
 
"If we are in a situation where there is tension in the world, we stand between war and peace," he said. "If we then have a president who spreads lots of false rumours, it can be truly dangerous."
 
 
Donald J. Trump ‏@realDonaldTrump  
 My statement as to what's happening in Sweden was in reference to a story that was broadcast on @FoxNews concerning immigrants & Sweden.

Once again, Donald Trump opens his mouth and vomits FAKE NEWS:
 
 
"Donald Trump appears to invent Sweden terror attack during Florida rally speech
 
Donald Trump appeared to invent a terrorist attack in Sweden during a campaign-style rally in Florida.
 
On an evening during which he attacked the news media and the judges who ruled against his travel ban, Mr Trump used his speech to talk about migration in Europe and linked it to terror attacks in Brussels, Nice and Paris - before inexplicably adding Sweden to the list.
 
Mr Trump told supporters in Melbourne: "We've got to keep our country safe. You look at what's happening in Germany, you look at what's happening last night in Sweden.
 
"Sweden, who would believe this. Sweden. They took in large numbers. They're having problems like they never thought possible. You look at what's happening in Brussels. You look at what's happening all over the world. Take a look at Nice. Take a look at Paris."
 
One of the country's official Twitter accounts, controlled by a different citizen each week, reacted with bafflement.
 
Its current administrator, a school librarian, said: "Nothing has happened here in Sweden. There has not [been] any terrorist attacks here. At all."
 
What Mr Trump's remark referred to in unclear, but it came after Fox News aired an interview with filmmaker Ami Horowitz, whose latest documentary examines whether high crime rates in areas of the country is attributable to its previous open-door migration policy."

Trump's nominee for Secretary of the Navy is on the verge of withdrawing, citing his lack of familiarity with naval issues.............(He said, off the record, that he tried to prepare for the job by sailing toy ships in his bathtub, but his kids were laughing at him.)

Donald Trump’s Comprehensive Border Reforms Kill Obama’s Pro-Migration Policies

The comprehensive immigration reforms of Obama’s policies were signed by DHS chief Gen. John Kelly on Feb. 17. They direct DHS officials to use an expedited repatriation process for illegals who have been in the United States for up to two years, to return border-crossing Mexicans home while their appeals for entry are adjudicated, and to prosecute illegal aliens who hire migrant-smugglers to get their children into the United States.

Because he lies and he likes liars such as Trump?

 

Heavens!

 

I think the word "hypocrite" might be applicable to good ol' Jake, as well.

 

Polls that he likes he promotes; polls he doesn't like are filled with lies.

Then why did you make a point of posting on this thread the only poll that gave Trump a positive approval rating in Big Block Letters, Jake?

Approval polls are more reliable than election polls. People have no incentive to lie.

 

 

They have even more so now.

"The Florida event had the familiar trappings of a Trump campaign rally, including red Trump caps, "Make America Great Again" and "Trump/Pence" signs and at least one sign reading "Hillary for Prison." Some of the speakers ahead of Trump's appearance called for repealing and replacing President Barack Obama's health care law, criticized the news media or lobbed barbs at Clinton, other constants of last year's rallies.
 
The music playlist preceding Trump's appearance included rally favourites like Free's "All Right Now." As Air Force One rolled up to the hangar, the theme to the Harrison Ford movie "Air Force One" signalled its arrival. Trump and the first lady appeared as Lee Greenwood's "God Bless the U.S.A." played. And his 45-minute remarks were followed by another 2016 campaign favourite, the 1969 hit "You Can't Always Get What You Want" by the Rolling Stones.
 
...Trump has lurched from crisis to crisis since the inauguration, including the botched rollout of his immigration order, struggles confirming his Cabinet picks and a near-constant stream of reports about strife within his administration."
 
The Associated Press 
 
 
It looks like Trump will be spending the rest of his administration campaigning for the 2020 election. (it's good to get an early start) The Rolling Stones should be suing Trump soon.

The Trump-Netanyahu Alliance

402289.jpg

From the statements they made at the joint press conference, it is clear that Trump and Netanyahu have decided to build an alliance. Its purpose is twofold. First, by working together, they can defeat the common foes of their countries. And second, the success of their joint efforts will bring about the defeat of their bureaucratic enemies.

The most significant development to come out of the Trump-Netanyahu press conference was their refusal to endorse the two-state policy doctrine.

This was a necessary move.
