POTUS Trump Thread

Health insurance rip off lying FDA big bankers buying

You're all fakes

i was thinking the other day that an underreported reason trump won was the quality of candidates opposing him in the primary. When Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, and Jeb Bush are your competition it becomes a cake walk

shit anyone have that article or whatever with like a bunch of links to the post ridiculous, insane shit trump did before he was running for pres? I'm trying to find that like vogue or vanity fair article from the 90s that talks about him breaking his newly installed water fountain at his tennis courts in anger.

i mean, this guy is just the biggest shithead in the goddamn world.

One of the best disses on him for my money was from I think Christian Science Monitor that he is a total embodiment of the biblical fool.

maga is a huge dogwhistle and so it made me queasy from the get-go. it's dumb but it's actually a very good slogan for its purpose.

who is responsible for negotiating this


I’m going to erroneously blame Chuck because he’s such a goddamn spineless tool, however YASSSS queen nancy could have certainly helped because actually no one in a position of leadership in this party has our best interest in mind.


it looks like Nita Lowey should be receiving a ton of displeased calls tomorrow morning

Richard Shelby heads up the Senate side. from the AP story:

The agreement means 55 miles of new fencing — constructed through existing designs such as metal slats instead of a concrete wall — but far less than the 215 miles the White House demanded in December. The fencing would be built in the Rio Grande Valley in Texas.

The pact also includes increases for new technologies such as advanced screening at border entry point, humanitarian aid sought by Democrats, and additional customs officers.

This weekend, Shelby pulled the plug on the talks over Democratic demands to limit immigrant detentions by federal authorities, frustrating some of his fellow negotiators, but Democrats yielded ground on that issue in a fresh round of talks on Monday.

Democrats carried more leverage into the talks after besting Trump on the 35-day shutdown but showed flexibility in hopes on winning Trump's signature. After yielding on border barriers, Democrats focused on reducing funding for detention beds to curb what they see as unnecessarily harsh enforcement by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE.

The agreement yielded curbed funding, overall, for ICE detention beds, which Democrats promised would mean the agency would hold fewer detainees than the roughly 49,000 detainees held on Feb. 10, the most recent date for which figures were available. Democrats claimed the number of beds would be ratcheted down to 40,520.

But a proposal to cap at 16,500 the number of detainees caught in areas away from the border — a limit Democrats say was aimed at preventing overreach by the agency — ran into its own Republican wall.

Democrats dropped the demand in the Monday round of talks, and the mood in the Capitol improved markedly.

is there a public appetite for protests over this potential bipartisan agreement?

sorry, shark week, idk even though I should.

But while I'm recalling the past, the Iraq War was basically just a Capitalist war of aggression, right? Or did the Bushes just really wanna kill Saddam that bad? In any case, 9/11 and the aftermath was such a good instance of a group of politicans doing something they wanted to do anyway and blaming it on a tragedy.

i can't imagine why Lowey and Dem House leadership would sign off on this deal. they have a ton of leverage.

it's unconscionable

I doubt it. Everyone is mobilized for a shutdown and this stops that from happening. You won't see much fight against it.

trying to cap the number of "beds" ICE has would seem to invite them to invent some new and even less humane way to detain people

Both this and allowing a centimeter of wall to be built has the Democrats complicit in the hatred, evil, and racism of this administration and the other republican leaders. I don’t care how they try to spin it
