    Trump is now the musings of a old man beginning to display early stages of senility, I just want him gone, so that we do not want to talk about him anymore.

    Let Donald Trump terrorize Trump properties. Stay the f**k out of my life.

    I want him gone from my life.

    George HW Bush 41 was a good President( in my lifetime) was a great heart for US ideals.

    TRUMP TAX SCAM and Tariff's
    GM’s latest disclosure confirms what economists have observed throughout 2018: The corporate tax cuts pushed through by the Trump Administration last fall appear to have had little if any positive effect on the U.S. economy. In the 11 months since the so-called Tax Cuts and Jobs Act was enacted, publicly available data have shown that Fortune 500 corporations have used their tax cuts overwhelmingly to repurchase stock rather than to create new jobs or invest in capital infrastructure. This trend flies in the face of the Trump Administration’s promise that the corporate tax provisions, especially a tax holiday for profits stashed offshore, of which GM appears to have had as much as $6.5 billion, would spur a flood of new domestic investment.


    Does this mean the Trump Administration doesn’t have any fingerprints on the sad saga now playing out in Ohio? Certainly not. By GM’s own estimates, the administration’s steel tariffs will cost the company around $1 billion, making it harder for the company to invest in productive capacity. And the thousands of families whose livelihood will be threatened by these layoffs will find that the federal government is less able to provide vital transitional aid, from job training to unemployment benefits, which should be available to help these families move past the layoffs. In both the short term and down the road, the Trump tax cuts have hamstrung our nation’s ability to pay for public investments that could help laid-off workers find new jobs.


    Even worse, the Trump tax plan arguably encourages domestic layoffs when it’s part of a shift to offshore employment. As we have noted in the past, the new tax law’s territorial system (which exempts most profits reported in other countries) provides a clear incentive for companies to move operations and jobs offshore to take advantage of lower tax rates. So if GM’s layoffs are part of a broader move to shift jobs overseas, the Trump tax cuts could certainly be part of the reason why.


    When federal lawmakers enacted the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, it was a solution in search of a problem. At a time when corporate tax levels were already near historic lows, and corporate profits near historical highs, the tax plan’s authors hoped against hope that doling out huge corporate tax cuts would encourage already cash-rich corporations to create new jobs and new infrastructure—even though these firms generally already had the resources to make such investments if they saw the opportunity. GM’s layoffs are just the latest in a long series of reminders that this hope was in vain. Corporate investment strategies are, and must be, based on the dictates of the marketplace. If continuing to produce the Chevy Impala made no sense to GM’s leaders before the tax cut, doling out billions of dollars in corporate tax giveaways simply can’t change that logic.

    Trump on Coming Debt Crisis: ‘I Won’t Be Here’ When It Blows Up
    Since the 2016 presidential campaign, Donald Trump’s aides and advisers have tried to convince him of the importance of tackling the national debt.


    Sources close to the president say he has repeatedly shrugged it off, implying that he doesn’t have to worry about the money owed to America’s creditors—currently about $21 trillion—because he won’t be around to shoulder the blame when it becomes even more untenable.


    The friction came to a head in early 2017 when senior officials offered Trump charts and graphics laying out the numbers and showing a “hockey stick” spike in the national debt in the not-too-distant future. In response, Trump noted that the data suggested the debt would reach a critical mass only after his possible second term in office.


    “Yeah, but I won’t be here,” the president bluntly said, according to a source who was in the room when Trump made this comment during discussions on the debt.

    Re: Just how Crazy is Donald Trump!

    I actually am beginning to agree with President Trump on Chinese tariffs. He obviously has way more global trade experience than most people.

    I have been watching a series of shows on Youtube that try and describe a Westerners life in China.

    They all describe that it is an ingrained part of Chinese culture to think that it is OK to steal without consequences other people's Intellectual property for personal economic benefit.

    I do not think this behavior will change any time soon.

    Maybe the Trump Administration could have marketed the tariffs a bit better to the public but I do think he is right and the next USA Administration needs to continue with the China tariffs.

    Tariffs against allies need to be eliminated.

    China will never change, it is a cultural divide that cannot be conquered only managed.

    Popular Chinese culture believes that financial transactions are for immediate profit and do not see the extra profit of long term business relationships.

    I have recently read an old Chinese proverb that there cannot be two Suns and there cannot be two Emperors.

    I think that both China and the USA need to acknowledge that there can only be one Sun but yes there can be two Emperors.
