Trump Presidency and the Consequences

Hi folks,

You know how it works... President Trump and the consequences.

As actions and decisions come in one by one, we can debate and discuss consequences. Good or bad, happy or sad, true or false, positive or negative for the USA???


Kicking it off.


Trump Scraps TPP
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-32498715

He said he would. Top man. Does as he says.

Bad for global trade. SPX500 off a trifle. Dollar falling. Good for US jobs??? So they say. Remains to be seen.

I don't follow the teachings of Nietzsche, (What doesn't kill you will only make you stronger ) unlike Hitler.

The great disadvantage on the UK becoming the 51st 52nd 53rd states of the union is that we might get a neo Fascist ignoramus as leader.

Only in Europe would they be so pompous as to call it an empire. Calling it an empire dooms it, from the Roman Empire to the British Empire. The British Empire went from having India, Canada, 13 colonies, the Caribbean, Hong Kong, ... to just the UK. Now they just have BOTCs in the Caribbean, not even colonies. Brits need a passport to travel to those countries and they have heads of state.

The US has colonies even though we were never pompous enough to call them that. They are US territories spanning the far flung regions of the world. Instead of heads of state they are regional governors. "One president to rule them all." Trump rules them all now. The best part is that American can travel to them without a passport like an extension to the country. From Amundsen, Antartica to The Aleutians to The Marshall Islands to the mainland.

That is an empire, if we were to call it such, but alas they are territories.

US (Empire ) from 339,255 sq mi (13 states) to 3,531,905 sq mi now. 1,041% increase in size.
British Empire from 5,124,000 sq mi to 94,058 sq mi. 98.1% decrease in size.
In the same amount of time.

White House website touts Melania Trump’s modeling and jewelry line

. . . reminiscent of Trump’s daughter Ivanka’s appearance with her father after the election on “60 Minutes.” She wore an $11,000 bracelet from her own jewelry line that was touted the next day in a mass email advertisement.

Ivanka’s company also touted a dress she wore at the Republican National Convention, which sold out.


Presidents represent the nation, as do their spouses and children. The White House is not a shopping mall.

Atilla started this thread Listening to Sean Spicer on sky news and he sounds really great and passionate and picking up good positive vibes.

Super performance compared to previous day.

How is that a shopping mall. Economics 101. It is called the complimentary goods effect. A factor that effects demand. A basketballer wears Air Jordans and now basketball fans want to wear them.

The First Family will always be in the media and people will try to buy what they buy and what they wear. It is popular because she wore it. No touting necessary.

You obviously agree with Paul Light or else why post it? Throwing spaghetti against the wall to see what sticks.

There is no mention of Ivanka's line or companies.

The White House website is no longer available in Spanish

President Trump, who chided his opponents during the campaign for speaking Spanish, has made a tangible change to the White House website to eliminate bilingual access.

The site , which the Trump administration took over on Friday, no longer includes an option for translation into Spanish, or another that gives information about access for disabled users that had existed under President Obama.

Maybe but Sean Spicer, said they had techies working OT to fix it.

Is it an error or policy to remove it?
