    So he causes a "crisis" by scrapping the Iran Nuclear Deal then ramps up sanctions on Iran attempting to collapse their economy. Then sends 120000 troops and some aircraft carriers to sit near Iran's border and now he bypasses congress to sell weapons to the Saudi's with the pathetic excuse of the same "ongoing tensions" that he started which is now a national emergency...:rolleyes:

    Trump approves $8bn Saudi weapons sale over Iran tensions

    Surely this should have some blowback for him bypassing Congress.

    Now now, we all know that Hilary was the warmonger.

    Trump fans told us before the election.

    Just another reason for democrats in 2020 to use literally any excuse to abuse the executive for domestic issues.

    Roe vs Wade? National emergency.

    Healthcare? Yep.

    Net neutrality? You bet.

    Trumps entire financial history? ;)

    Speaking of net neutrality - yet again McConnell keeps blocking Democrats attempt to restore it. And how do the Democrats respond? Reaching across the aisle for compromise......they never learn.

    Trump's attempt to appropriate Pentagon funds for his border wall have been shut down by US District Court Judge Haywood Gilliam, who ruled that two wall-related construction projects should not be allowed to proceed on the basis that funding them with Pentagon money is unconstitutional.

    We're now two and a half years into Trump's first term, and he hasn't laid a single brick for the wall he promised to start building on day one of his presidency.

    Trump has now launched his own conspiracy theory, claiming that the governments of the UK, Ukraine, and Australia were all responsible for Russigate. He also claims that he's declassified everything, which we know is absolutely not true.

    :lol:

    The fact he's still trying to hide his tax returns, the accounts of his businesses, the mueller report....

    He's the most transparent politician ever, if you ignore all the other presidents who have been far more open.

    He's talking about the declassification of the Mueller report though. Where is that info that the report is not going to be declassified? Pretty much every American news site seems to be reporting that it's going to be declassified. So what info are you seeing?

    In September last year, Trump promised he would deliver a Middle East peace plan within four months. We're now eight months on, so... how's it working out?

    (Source).

    Oh. I guess I'm not really surprised.

    As trolling goes - that's a shoddy attempt and hardly an SC worthy response.

    Quiet day on the Trump front - the only thing of note (if you can call it that) is his latest ramblings about fighter jets and the type of launch system used on aircraft carriers. If he's talking about the F-35, I am inclined to agree with him (horrendously expensive and beset with significant problems).

    Edit - @Trusty fair enough :)

    It was just the fact he completely glossed over my post and posted something new.

    Trump is claiming that he was sticking up for Biden by changing the word “idiot”, that KJU apparently used to describe him, to “individual”. ******* idiot

    Russia and China have jointly boycotted Trump's Middle East peace conference.
