So that's the art of the deal----make it up

cbc.ca/news/politics/trump-trudeau-1.4577179

"U.S. President Donald Trump boasted in a fundraising speech in Missouri on Wednesday that he made up facts about trade in a meeting with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, according to a recording of the comments obtained by the Washington Post.

The newspaper said in a report posted on its website that Trump had insisted to Trudeau that the United States runs a trade deficit with its neighbour to the north without knowing whether or not that was the case.

Trump said on the recording that after Trudeau told him the U.S. does not have a trade deficit with Canada, he replied, "Wrong, Justin, you do," then added, "I didn't even know ... I had no idea." "

    And another excerpt.....

    "Bruce Heyman, the U.S. ambassador to Canada until January, blasted Trump in a series of tweets early Thursday while also apologizing to Canada for Trump's reported comments.

    "Lying to your friends only hurts the relationship," he wrote. "Canada has been there for us thru thick and thin. How can you casually damage this relationship? Shame on you!""

    Why has Mike A. not joined this discussion to tell us about all the winning?

    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    Well the world should not feel slighted by this...

    Trump lied to the American People
    Trump lied to his wife
    Trump lied to himself

    Why would anyone expect anything different?

    I recall a few years back I stated how lucky America was to have a leader like Obama
    And the regs gave their spew based on....."What do you know"

    Well the evidence is reported daily

    Hopefully the next guy can fix this

    Anything, or nothing. Truth is, it won't matter what he or she does, just as long as it's a Democrat. TV will go back to cramming some other leftist BS agenda down everyone's throats. CNN will go back to reporting on anything BUT the POTUS's screw ups. It'll be global nirvana all over again. Except, just like last time, it really won't be.

    If you looked at anything other than fox news---you may see what's happening outside your borders

    Already the N Korea talks are questioned as it has been widely reported how fast and loose the game show host is with the truth
    Other world leaders now have to wonder if what Trump is telling them--is actually so

    How many F ing times do I have to tell you people I don't rely on Fox for my news? Stop trying to stereotype anyone that you don't agree with. What's so funny is that If you WATCH your news on the MSM,, guess what? You're watching biased news.

    America overwhelming elected Obama. Twice. I guess you all believe it's Russia's fault they rejected more Obama. > @Bushart said:

    He could get Kim Jung to destroy his military complex, convert to Christianity and turn NK into the garden of eden and it'd be reported as Trump disrespects Buddhists, Jews, and Hindus. Nothing he's done so far won approval from the left. Shocker.

    Anyway---nice deflect
    This started out as Trump fudging facts to another world leader and ally and then boasting about it

    it needs to be separated...politicians everywhere will stretch it to their own people---who of course they wish to have hire them---so to speak--like lying on your resume

    But interacting with G7 countries and stretching it and later boasting---is a different animal

    I thought he might have had some sort of political epiphany, but after reading the last few posts I find I’m in error.

    Fox News would have more credibility than the sources you use.

    Blue team doesn't want red team to do well, results be damned... so yes, it's bad (at The Lodge). President Trump will get ZERO praise here, regardless ANY achievements. So shut up.

    This is why your sources suck, Those things have been talked about, yet most of them have not happened. The stock market is being propped up by huge stock buy backs. Wait for that bubble to burst, when people realize how over valued those stocks are.

    Conservative judges are only a good thing for you.

    No Rose coloured glasses here---kind of relies on perspective

    Tax reform---deficit spending..check
    Immigration reform....border wall unsure who pays for and hit to that whole sign on the statue of Liberty..Check
    Islamic State (not defeated-see Africa)--And Iraq and ME de-stabilized from that other guy--check
    TPP withdrawal---better re-check that one cuz they are now looking at opportunity lost and may want in---check
    Paris Accord withdrawal----you may think it's good----Even China is taking a leadership role---check
    Embassy in Jerusalem----Trump and 6 other guys think this is a good idea...check
    North Korea---yeah they're not just buying time....check

    So it depends what glass you look through

  • MikeAMikeA Senior Member Posts: 2,748 Senior Member

    I'm not sure how you guys can see anything through those dark glasses. I've never known such gloom and doom like I see from some of you. Even when things were good in the last admin. There's always some issue or injustice, and it's always somebody else's (AKA rightwads) fault.

    Read this book sometime. Might change your life.

    Full on juxtaposition here. Mike, I wish there was a way for you to go back 8 years and see your's and several others posts regarding life with a black president. Talk about doom and gloom.

  • BushartBushart Senior Member Posts: 1,793 Senior Member

    I thought Obama was gonna come for your guns and set up death panels

    And on a sidenote---if this admin can fix opiods---great---currently wait n see
    Thought Trump was gonna be the guy to surprisingly stand up to NRA---that lasted one news cycle
