The people of Germany sure love their open borders, hope they enjoy seeing their country go down the tubes.

 

What a crock.  White supremacist nonsense from a yappy little Trump lap dog.

Trump’s Poland Speech Draws Criticism for ‘Disturbing’ Undertones-

 

"During a speech at the site of the Warsaw Uprising Monument in Poland on Thursday, President Donald Trump proclaimed in terms some characterized as “disturbing” that “the fundamental question of our time is whether the West has the will to survive.”

 

Speaking before an audience of close to 15,000 enthusiastic, flag-waving Poles—many of them bused in by Poland’s ruling right-wing Law and Justice Party—Trump returned to “the same life-or-death language as his inauguration speech, which promised a war against the ‘American carnage’ of urban crime,” noted Julie Hirschfeld Davis of the New York Times.....

 

Others, however, detected a more ominous current running beneath Trump’s words, which were delivered in a nation governed by a fervently nationalistic party that has sparked fierce and widespread protests for what critics view as a sharp drift away from democracy.

 

Honing in on Trump’s repeated emphasis on “the will” and his declaration that “our civilization will triumph,” many made connections between the speech and an infamous 1935 Nazi propaganda film titled “Triumph of the Will,” which was directed by Leni Riefenstahl and based on the 1934 Nuremberg Rally........

Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump

Trade between China and North Korea grew almost 40% in the first quarter. So much for China working with us - but we had to give it a try!

 

6:21 AM - 5 Jul 2017

 

 

"Setting aside that he appears to be throwing in the towel on trade with China — America’s second largest trading partner — the president has announced that he is considering unilateral action against the hermit kingdom.

 

The recklessness of this move cannot be overstated. After publicly suggesting via tweet, a day and a half ago, that China “put a heavy move on North Korea and end this nonsense once and for all!” Trump is signaling that his patience has already run out, and that the largest country in the world will no longer have cooperation from the United States.

 

What’s more, Trump’s public provocations of Kim Jong-un leave the egomaniacal dictator with few face-saving options but to continue escalating his military showmanship....

Dennis Rodman's advice for Trump is to go to North Korea to meet Kim Jong Un.  Go For It!  ... with any luck Donny will wind up in a labor camp and won't come back.

 

In his DREAMS. :wacko:

 

 

Maybe Dennis should STAY THERE since he love Pig Jong Un so much.  2 peas in a pod.

"Speaking in the Rose Garden, the president said Qatar had “historically been a funder of terrorism at a very high level.” Other U.S. officials have said Qatar has already taken some steps to reduce terror funding but that the steps are insufficient.

 

It wasn’t immediately clear how Trump’s sharp condemnation might affect U.S. cooperation with Qatar, which hosts some 10,000 U.S. troops and a major U.S. air base that serves as a staging ground for operations in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan. The Qatari Embassy in Washington did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

 

Only an hour before, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson had issued a very different message, calling on the Arab nations to immediately ease their blockade on Qatar.

“The blockage is hindering U.S. military action in the region, and the campaign against ISIS,” Tillerson said, using an acronym for the extremist group........

Sorry, I put this in the whopper thread by mistake ...

It seems that the recent disparaging news about Qatar which prompted Trump to jump on the bandwagon was created by the Russians and is fake.  So, Trump is either an idiot for jumping on the bandwagon at the drop of a hat or he is willingly amplifying a Russian fake news story much like he did during the campaign.

Has Trump's tweet taking credit for branding Qatar a terrorist enabler not long after praising them as a trusted ally when he was in Saudi Arabia put thousands of U.S. troops who are stationed there in danger?  The U.S. relies on Qatar and its air force base to fight terrorism.  Does carrot-head know what he is doing?

 

You sure ask a lot of rhetorical questions.   ;)
