Since the election, illegal border crossings are down to a trickle, deportations of criminal illegals is speeding up


I can give you that and tell you that you will eventually find out is wasn't a good idea.

Mexico and Canada have agreed to renegotiate NAFTA


Just renegotiating doesn't mean much. We can discuss once it is redone. I am going to bet it ends up a worse deal, but we'll see.

Toyota announced it will invest $10 billion in the US


From Reuter's "Toyota Motor Corp (7203.T) will invest $10 billion in the United States over the next five years, the same as in the previous five years, North America Chief Executive Jim Lentz said on Monday, to meet demand and upgrade plants to build more fuel-efficient models."
Same as previous 5 years. Nothing to see here.

Jack Ma has pledged to create 1 million US jobs by allowing small and medium US business to sell to China through Ali Baba's platforms


This is nothing new also. Ali Baba has been expanding this platform since 2014. Last year the US was the no. 2 branded product on that platform. From Forbes "In its just-released annual report, Tmall Global, the cross-border arm of Alibaba’s giant B2C site Tmall, disclosed that the number of international brands selling to Chinese consumers through its platform soared 169 percent last year to 14,500, up from 5,400 at the end of 2015. More than 80% of those international brands, which include well-known names such as Macy’s and Target, did not have any presence in China prior to their launch on Tmall Global."

Japan's SoftBank has pledged $50 billion in US investment


This coming out of the Softbank Vision fund that announced $100 billion in investments........a month prior to the US elections and at a time when Trump was expected to lose. Nothing special here.

Australian billionaire Anthony Pratt has pledged to invest $2 billion in the US 'due to confidence in Trump


From Pratt Industries website..."“We currently operate 68 factories and employ 7000 people and we want to continue to grow those numbers,” said Anthony. “Just here in the Midwest alone we’ve invested almost $500 million dollars since the beginning of 2015.”
Again, nothing new here. Pratt has been making this type of investment here in the US for the past 20 years.

the Saudis just committed to a $350 deal with the US


Unclear as to how much of an increase, if any, this represents but we'll give it to you.

Quote: Tanko

China has agreed to help US cattle farmers and purchase $2.5 billion in beef


This is a win, however it is more than offset by a $5 billion sales loss of beef from pulling out of the TPP. Net loss here.

Quote: Tanko

For the first time ever, China has agreed to purchase tons of LNG from the US


This is a win.

Quote: Tanko

the stock market has gained $2 trillion in wealth


True for now. Make sure that you come back and lay claim to the losses when they come. It shouldn't be much longer.

Quote: Tanko

for the first time ever, the 10,000 member MS-13 gang is being decimated


I would need evidence on this. MS-13 is a very small part of the gang problem in the US and other than the recent raids, there is really no proof that they are anywhere near "decimated".

Quote: Tanko

and for the first time since Truman, as US President has put North Korea on notice and not backed down.
After meeting with Trump, Chinese President Xi Jinping referring to Trump warned Kim Jong-un, "He's not bluffing". Do you think he would have said that about Obama or Clinton?

Then he proceeded to back it up by suspending coal shipments from North Korea, and for the first time ever, China abstained from voting against a US position, by abstaining in the UN vote to condemn the US raids on the Syrian airfield after Assad attacked his own people with sarin gas.


LOL....and the missiles keep flying.

Quote: Tanko

Do you think Hillary could have achieved any of that?


Nobody gives a shit about Hillary.

Quote: Tanko

A very good start.


LOL..................Only to a Gullible.

Oh yea. You forgot to mention the Gorsich win.

You're right. President Trump is the first president (or politician, for that matter) to ever do or say anything hypocritical and Hillary Clinton is just a sweet innocent angel.


I hated Hillary too. But she is not president. Nothing about her excuses Trump's behavior and actions.

In Trumps first 100 days, he was personally responsible for 84 months of diminishing unemployment and an equally long stock market rise.
I'm impressed.

As far as MS 13 goes, the more violent gang members we deport to El Salvador, the more non-violent, innocent people that will flee it.
MS13 was born and bred in California and it was our deporting them to El Salvador that broke the criminal justice system there in the first place.

There truly is an old hypocritical Trump tweet for every occasion!





Before any righties shout FAKE NEWS at me, it's just a joke.
The geniuses who thought HRC was running a child sex ring out of the basement of a pizza shop just can't connect the dots on all this trump-Russia stuff....

Looking like our buddy Trump and his Lilliputians is going to make sure that he lay claim to making a correct statement regarding Obamacare's collapse. The Despicables and the Gullibles. A great group.

"The Trump administration has continued making the payments, but the president has said he sees CSR funding up for negotiation. At this point, the administration has offered no commitment to continue the payments beyond this month, leaving insurers and enrollees unsure about what comes next."

Well, let's at least give credit where credit is due. Trump has single-handedly been responsible for destroying America's reputation around the world. Well done, sir, well done.
I remember the thirty-five sweet goodbyes; When you put me on the Wolverine up to Annandale; It was still September When your daddy was quite surprised; To find you with the working girls in the county jail; I was smoking with the boys upstairs when I Heard about the whole affair;I said oh no William and Mary won't do

Just read this.....
"If it is revealed that he did try to stop the FBI investigation, most Americans see that as a disqualification from office (58 percent) but unsurprisingly, those views are strongly tied to current support. In all, 79 percent of his backers, and 86 percent of his strongest supporters, say that wouldn't be serious enough to disqualify him."

79% of his backers think it's OK for him to stop the FBI investigation. Not serious? Really? Holy Crap!
Don't fear the liars..........but really, really fear the Gullibles. I want an IQ test administered to each and every one of them!

Gotta give Trump credit for being correct in this statement....
""I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn't lose voters," Trump said at a campaign rally here."

Like I said.......Fear the Gullibles.
