But there is the little matter of contributions to the Clinton Foundation from Russia via Frank Giustra.

How do you know the contributions were "from Russia via Frank Giustra"? Is there any evidence of a connection between Giustra and Russia, something that would make it reasonable to suppose that the money supposedly coming from Giustra was really coming from Russia?
https://www.nytimes.com/2015/04/24/us/cash-flowed-to-clinton-foundation-as-russians-pressed-for-control-of-uranium-company.html
"As the Russians gradually assumed control of Uranium One in three separate transactions from 2009 to 2013, Canadian records show, a flow of cash made its way to the Clinton Foundation. Uranium One’s chairman used his family foundation to make four donations totaling $2.35 million. Those contributions were not publicly disclosed by the Clintons, despite an agreement Mrs. Clinton had struck with the Obama White House to publicly identify all donors. Other people with ties to the company made donations as well.

And shortly after the Russians announced their intention to acquire a majority stake in Uranium One, Mr. Clinton received $500,000 for a Moscow speech from a Russian investment bank with links to the Kremlin that was promoting Uranium One stock."


Capitalism ftw!

When Hillary deals with the Saudi's, the Saudis are corrupt and bad.  When Trump deals with the Saudis they are one of our closest allies.  That hypocrisy.
I would submit it depends on the types of dealings.

Suggesting nuclear technology should be shared is the initial part of the deal. Nothing taken in return yet for one.

25 million USD? That was definitely taken...

Thats a reasonable way to approach it, but that has nothing to do with Trump's stance.  He was condemning Hillary for dealing with the Saudi's at all.  It did not matter to him what was taken or not.  But now that it is him, it appears to be a non-issue.


Didn't hillary SELL weapons?  Making a profit for America?

Hope the Right rages at him since they hated Hillary for selling uranium to Russia, who has nukes already.

He's also really fucking old. He'll probably die of a gunshot wound to the back of the head heart attack if he becomes president.


Trump is 72.  Sanders is 77.


And if Trump ain't dead from all the fast food....

My understanding is that presidential national emergencies have to be re-upped, so to speak, yearly. As in when one is declared it has a year life span and then expires unless it is ok'd again. So if Obama has 11 still in effect, they have all been re-upped by DJT.


Yep.

Well.... I guess I need to recind my previous post.


We've been taking property for decades.
The biggest difference is Trump has said its not an emergency.  But thats hardly a big difference.

He did it.


Now, when a Democrat gets the office, they can declare a national emergency on the next mass shooting.  Cause if drugs and thugs coming through legal checkpoints is an emergencyx surely the thousands of yearly gun desths are as well.

Also, NAFTA kinda makes that impossible, doesn't it?  He'd have to remove NAFTA first.
Dave is a psychic.


Eh, he just updated and rebranded it.  Like calling a chevy an Opal.  Same car, now with EU standards.

More "bad orange man," douchebaggery struck down...
"The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Monday rejected arguments by the state of California and environmental groups who tried to block work that has mostly been completed near San Diego and Calexico.

The 2-1 opinion upheld a lower court decision that found the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996 allows the Department of Homeland Security to avoid lengthy environmental reviews to speed construction of border barriers."

Sounds like a piece of Clinton era legislation being held up. Nothing to do with Trump.


Trump should thank Clinton for it.

"Although EO 13858 may fail, in the near term, to impose outright Buy American procurement preferences on federal assistance awards, it unquestionably presents an opportunity for domestic companies supplying these taxpayer-financed public infrastructure markets to encourage agencies to follow through with plans and programs that further the President's directives. For manufacturers of products that have not historically benefited from the limited scope and applicably of existing federal-aid Buy America laws, EO 13858 presents significant opportunities."
ALL HAIL OUR GRAND, BENEFICENT, ILLUSTRIOUS SUPREME LEADER!!!



It'll cost more (which is bad given the tax cuts) but I'm in favor of this EO.

"With so much talk about the Wall, people are losing sight of the great job being done on our Southern Border by Border Patrol, ICE and our great Military. Remember the Caravans? Well, they didn’t get through and none are forming or on their way. Border is tight." -President Trump
