Trump probably sees the wall as his permanent legacy, like the Washington Monument but 2000 miles long.

re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 2

And at the end of the meeting...


A meeting on immigration:
"blah blah blah [about everything but immigration]"
Suddenly:
"Pass the bill! trump out!"
(no idea that a bill isn't even remotely ready)

So, "Mr. President, fuck you", yes, fuck you indeed!


And, unless it's to give her a medal of honor, this is all kinds of fucked up...

Yeah, us pesky Canadians and our shoe smuggling!

Trump Accuses Canadians Of Smuggling U.S. Shoes Because Of 'Massive' Tariffs

Donald Trump is ramping up his criticism of Canada by claiming we're a nation of shoe smugglers.

Speaking to the National Federation of Independent Business in Washington Tuesday, Trump went off on a tangent against both Mexico and Canada and ripped the North American Free Trade Agreement as a "disaster."
.
.
Trump then pivoted to accusing Canadians of buying products in the U.S. only to sneak them back because of "massive" tariffs, citing a story he apparently read in a "major newspaper."

"The tariffs to get common items back into Canada are so high that they have to smuggle them in. They buy shoes and they wear them," he said. "They scuff them up. They make them sound old or look old. No, we're treated horribly."

The duties and taxes Canadians pay at the border on imported goods are actually collected on behalf the government of Canada after U.S. businesses have made their cash.
.
.

Yup, tariffs, taxes, duties, all the same!

When I'm flying home, I always like to shop in the airport's tariff-free store.

Why on earth are the Capitol Police looking for the woman who yelled “Fuck you” to Trump?

I mean I know it’s because one cannot disparage the King but in reality, what could she be charged with?

I can attest to this place and its community. Lived 20 minutes away. I have seen how really close friends have embraced this culture and my only question is whether they were like this all along or have they been brainwashed into a Fox/Trump cult.

Hey everyone! Haven't posted here since very shortly after the last presidential election. Just wondering, are both sides still equally bad?

Also, one of trump's two campaign managers is now in jail, and the other...


But yeah, both sides. Go back and read the election thread with people who were unwilling to vote for one candidate over the other because "both were bad".

The media: "Here's another umpteenth article about President Trump and/or his supporters!"

Also the media: "Nobody knows what the Democrats' policies are!"

No.

One party allows children of illegal immigrants to be temporarily separated from their parents.

The other party supports abortion.

Hot Take here! I like it better than but her emails.
Here is another hot take,maybe the pundit class and Party establishment people should look in the mirror and accept some of the blame for Trump. 2 years before the election they rallied around a candidate and colluded to prevent people running to hoist up a someone being investigated by the FBI(Even if you think it was bs and or small potato's, that t was never gonna not hurt her in a GE)as the safe/smart GE candidate. Literally any generic Democratic Govenor or Senator would have been a safer candidate and beaten Trump
