Former Congressman David Jolly (R-FL) did not mince his words about the state of the Donald Trump presidency. It is over.

https://www.rawstory.com/2017/05/republi...ion-about-that/

Jolly then said the following with a dark demeanor. He realizes the Trump presidency is dead in one form or another.

"But in the long lens," Jolly said with a sigh. "Donald Trump is done. He is done. There is no question about that. He's done. Look at what happened in the first hundred days. Director Comey, one of the top law enforcement officers in the country, makes memos of every interaction he had with the president of the United States. Tonight, Rosenstein comes out in the brief two or three weeks he has to make an impact and says, we need a special counsel. That is historic in terms of a hundred days of a new president."

Easiest Fact Check Ever: Trumpís Claim That No Politician Has Had It Worse

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/donald-trump-unfair-comparison_us_591ca832e4b034684b090f23

Barack Obama: People may not remember this, but President Obama was relentlessly accused of not having been born in the United States of America. In my humble opinion, this was pretty ungracious! And hereís an interesting historical detail: One of the ringleaders of the movement to unfairly discredit Obamaís American-ness was future President Trump.

As you can plainly see, Donald Trump, by virtue of not being shot in the abdomen or head, not having his mansion burned down, and not being accused of birth in a foreign country in order to question his legitimacy, is making out pretty good on the spectrum of ďbeing treated fairly.Ē

Trump doesn't want Muslims here but is OK for him to go over there and get the nations highest honor.

http://www.cnn.com/2017/05/20/politics/donald-trump-middle-east/index.html

the pageantry continued inside the Saudi Royal Court, where Salman presented Trump with a gilded necklace and medal, the country's highest honor.

http://www.politico.com/story/2017/05/20/trump-russia-meeting-obstruction-investigation-238639

The new special counsel investigation into possible collusion between associates of President Donald Trump and Russia is just getting started ó and it could take years to resolve.

But Trumpís Oval Office boast to Russian officials May 10 about why he fired FBI Director James Comey will almost certainly trigger a more immediate, and potentially perilous, legal development: an obstruction of justice investigation into whether the president intentionally engaged in a cover-up that warrants the filing of criminal charges, current and former Justice Department officials say.

Trump summarily terminated Comey one day earlier, just as it appeared that his FBI investigators were ramping up their investigation into the presidentís associates ó and possibly Trump himself. A day later, the president told Russianís Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and U.S. Ambassador Sergey Kislyak that, ďI just fired the head of the F.B.I. He was crazy, a real nut job.Ē

This is much worse than what Clinton did.

Hours after the New York Times reportedóand multiple news outlets confirmedóthat President Donald Trump had asked former FBI Director James Comey to drop the bureau's investigation into Michael Flynn, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said the president's mounting scandals were inching towards Watergate proportions.

"I think we've seen this movie before," the Arizona senator said at the International Republican Institute's Freedom Awards on Tuesday. "I think it's reaching a point where it's of Watergate size and scale, and a couple of other scandals that you and I have seen. It's a centipede that the shoe continues to drop."

Trump, Xi have 'candid,' 'positive' talks in Florida

By Jeremy Diamond and Kevin Liptak, CNN
Updated 9:24 PM ET, Fri April 7, 2017
Trump & Xi's North Korea problem



Palm Beach, Florida (CNN)President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping established a new framework for high-level negotiations on a range of issues and pledged to make progress on trade negotiations within the next 100 days during meetings here Thursday and Friday, top US officials said.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson touted the first summit between the leaders of the world's two largest economies as a success and said Trump and Xi enjoyed "very frank, very candid" discussions that were "very positive." The officials signaled that the trading relationship between the two countries and North Korea's nuclear program were at the top of the agenda during the meetings, which took place here over 24 hours at Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate.
Trump is learning the hard way that being President is tough

The meetings, which were overshadowed by Trump's launch of an airstrike against a Syrian government target during the summit, did not yield any concrete accomplishments beyond pledges of increased cooperation and new frameworks for dialogue.
Tillerson, who briefed reporters alongside Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross at the conclusion of the summit, also said Trump said China needs to make changes to its economy in order to "level the playing field for American workers, stressing repeatedly the need for reciprocal market access."
"President Trump noted the challenges caused by Chinese government intervention in its economy and raised serious concerns," Tillerson said.
Mnuchin said the discussions focused on creating a "more balanced economic relationship, specifically on trade."

All three Cabinet secretaries, though, used diplomatic language to describe the trading imbalance between the two countries, avoiding the hard-nosed rhetoric Trump has used for years in railing against the multibillion dollar US trade deficit with China. Trump has accused China of "raping" the US and argued that it has engaged in trade abuses to gain an advantage over the US.
The two leaders also agreed on the "urgency of the threat of North Korea's nuclear weapons program" and agreed to work together to resolve the issue "peacefully," Tillerson said.
"The two sides noted the urgency of the threat of North Korea's weapons program, reaffirmed their commitment to a denuclearized Korean Peninsula and committed to fully implement UN Security Council resolutions," Tillerson said. "They agreed to increase cooperation and work with the international community to convince the [North Korea] to peacefully resolve the issue and abandon its illicit weapons programs."
Discussions between Trump and Xi over North Korea came days after Trump warned that the US was prepared to act unilaterally to stop North Korea's nuclear program from advancing further should China be unwilling to use its leverage over Pyongyang.
The discussions also came as Trump launched a strike against a Syrian government air base as retaliation for its recent chemical weapons attack against a rebel stronghold, which killed civilians, including children. Some experts interpreted the strike as a warning to North Korea that the US is prepared to act militarily to prevent the use of weapons of mass destruction.
Trump informed Xi of the strike as they finished eating dinner together on Friday, just as the US-launched cruise missiles struck their targets.
Tillerson said Xi told Trump that he "understood that such a response was necessary when people are killing children" and expressed "an appreciation" to Trump for informing him of the number of missiles that were launched and explaining the rationale behind the strike.

Guest essay: A closer look at Trumpís accomplishments

Saturday
Posted May 20, 2017 at 2:01 AM

By Noah Sanchez
So there is no doubt that there has been controversy on Donald Trumpís performance so far as weíve reached his first 100 days in office. With some people thinking that Trump has done an exceptional job so far and others thinking the opposite, it is difficult to get a reliable polling system set up with the mixed opinions.

According to a Huffington Post poll, Trumpís approval rating is at an all-time low of about 42 percent when last updated April 25. But according to the New York Post, approval ratings donít matter, saying that the answers and responses you get vary on where you are and who youíre polling.


But there is one thing that opinions canít win a fight with: facts.

A daily voting poll asked the question, ďDo you think Trump has done a good job so far?Ē and the answers were over 60 percent no and a little over 30 percent yes. At this point in Trumpís presidency, if you rely on the mainstream media reports, then you probably think Trump will go down has one of the worst presidents in history. But here are some facts to consider before you come to a conclusion.

When Trump took office, we heard him vow to cut debt by $16 trillion, and heís well on his way. According to The Washington Post, before Barack Obama took office, the debt was at about $10.6 trillion, and by the time Obama left office the debt was about $18 trillion. Now itís up to Trump to fix the horrible mess that was left for him. USA Politics Now reports that in just Trumpís first month, debt was cut by $12 billion, and in just a little over six weeks itís been slashed by an incredible $68 billion. So sticking to his campaign promises and cutting debt by about 0.1 percent every day, we are sure to see a big difference.

Another way Trump has left a big mark so far is his impact on job creation. If you havenít already noticed, Trump has made an incredibly successful business empire for him and his family. So really, if there is any person who knows how to create jobs, itís Trump. According to Infowars, since Trump took office, there have already been about 300,000-plus jobs created. This happened so dramatically because of Trumpís belief in strong business and his cutting of regulations on large corporations, allowing them to be more flexible in the decisions that they make such as worker selection.

These are just some of the many things Trump has done in office so far that benefit America greatly. So before coming to a conclusion on Trumpís performance as president, take these facts into account. Itís a long, bumpy road set out for Trump, but in the end heís on his way to ďmake America great again.Ē

Most of this is based on actions from before he took office since he inherited a near full growth economy. If by the end of this year, this pattern continues he deserves the credit.

Again these are actions that started before he took office. And many major retailers are announcing big jobs coming so we will see by the end of this where job numbers stand. Job numbers, by the way, that candidate Trump said were totally bogus.

Another great moment for America courtesy of President Donald Trump, who is in Jerusalem meeting with Israeli leadersówho, I guess, he does not consider Middle Eastern because they are not Arabs:

Gregg Carlstrom @glcarlstrom

Trump, in remarks before meeting with Rivlin, says "we just got back from the Middle East."

We try to keep it clean and professional around here, but, honestly? What a dumbass.

Economic growth under Obama was 1%, and all Presidential candidates ran on the bad economy in the election.

Nice try on spinning things your way.

So Trump gets the credit for this too, right?

https://www.forbes.com/sites/georgeanders/2017/05/23/the-looming-retail-bailout/#6f3ea5484ec7

While the economy finally seems to have recovered from the Great Recession, complete with discussion of full employment and rising wages, the memo must have missed the retail industry, where top executives of Macy's, J.C. Penney, Office Depot and the like pepper quarterly analyst briefings with terms like "softening trends," "disappointing" and "not satisfied." Since January, at least a dozen shrinking retailers have announced nearly 3,000 store closings. Even well-regarded companies such as Nordstrom see their shares trading at barely half their 2015 highs.
