President Trump and Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who reportedly impaneled a grand jury in the investigation into Russian meddling and potential collusion with the Trump campaign in the 2016 presidential election, have sent messages “back and forth,” according to the president’s outside counsel.

In an interview with USA Today, Trump’s chief counsel John Dowd said he's sent the messages on behalf of the president, who “appreciates” Mueller’s work. Dowd reiterated to Fox News that the communications have been professional.

“He appreciates what Bob Mueller is doing. He asked me to share that with him and that’s what I’ve done,” Dowd told USA Today. “The president has sent messages back and forth.”
FILE - In this June 21, 2017, file photo, former FBI Director Robert Mueller, the special counsel probing Russian interference in the 2016 election, departs Capitol Hill following a closed door meeting in Washington. A 2001 Justice Department memo warned that no nation, including the United States, was immune from the threat posed by Russian organized crime. The special counsel investigation is bringing attention to Russian efforts to meddle in democratic processes, the type of intelligence gathering that in the past has relied on hired hackers. It&#146;s not clear how much the probe by Mueller will center on the criminal underbelly of Moscow, but he&#146;s already picked some lawyers with experience confronting organized crime.

A spokesman for Mueller told Fox News that there have been communications among special counsel attorneys and the president’s outside legal team, as well as the president’s special counsel, Ty Cobb. The spokesman told Fox News those communications have been “very professional” and “very cooperative from both sides.”

The special counsel’s team is now stacked with 16 attorneys.
Donald Trump Says He’s The Best Dealmaker. Negotiation Experts Say Otherwise.

His leaked calls with world leaders reveal more bullying than diplomacy. “It makes Trump look a little venal, a little weak.”

On TV I have heard Trump supporters say that our president should be able to have private conversations with other world leaders without their private conversations leaking out. In the past I have always felt confident our president was providing his best foot forward in private conversations with other foreign leaders as he represented the greatest nation on earth. I even felt that way about Richard Nixon. Nixon did well on foreign policy. His problem was a third rate burglary he got mixed up in. But Trump is a whole other ball game. What is leaking out about his conversations with other foreign leaders is horrifying! America is no longer a shinning city on a hill. Trump has dragged our whole country into the gutter.

The wins keep coming. Go Trump!

Yeah, and began to drop drastically due to the catastrophic job losses as a result of the Great Recession created by the Bush Administration. And By 2013, during the Obama administration, Illegal border crossings dropped to their lowest levels in 40 years. whistle whistle whistle

http://www.cnn.com/2013/02/13/politics/fact-check-immigration/index.html
http://www.pewhispanic.org/2012/04/23/net-migration-from-mexico-falls-to-zero-and-perhaps-less/

"A Pew Research Hispanic Center study finds that Border Patrol apprehensions of all unauthorized immigrants are at their lowest level since 1971. "In spite of (and perhaps because of) increases in the number of U.S. Border Patrol agents (as ordered by Obama), apprehensions of Mexicans trying to cross the border illegally have plummeted in recent years—from more than 1 million in 2005 to 286,000 in 2011—a likely indication that fewer unauthorized migrants are trying to cross," it concluded.

Pew estimates that net migration -- newly arrived immigrants minus those leaving (forced or voluntarily) -- has come to a standstill, which it attributes to the weakened U.S. job and construction markets, border enforcement, an increase in deportations, and increased dangers associated with crossing the border.
In all, there were 327,577 illegal immigrant apprehensions in 2011, according to the U.S. Border Patrol. This is the lowest number since 1972, when there were 321,326. According to the Department of Homeland Security, the 2011 figure is a 53% drop from 2008, which it says indicates that fewer people are trying to cross the border."


Context is EVERYTHING.
You're full of crap as usual Bimbo!

The only thing Obama did was not letting Border patrol do their jobs plus his stupid DACA program!

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump on Thursday announced a $500 million investment that Corning Inc is making with pharmaceutical giants Merck and Pfizer to manufacture a new kind of glass for injectable drug vials.

At a White House event, Trump said the effort will create nearly 1,000 jobs at facilities in New York and New Jersey and at a soon-to-be-determined site in the southeastern United States.

The deal could eventually result in a total investment of $4 billion and create around 4,000 jobs, Trump said, joined by the CEOs of Corning, Merck and Pfizer.

The commitments were made as part of Trump's "Made in America" week, during which he has showcased American-made products and made an impassioned defense of his "America First" policies.

Corning said it developed the new type of glass in collaboration with the drug makers.

"This initiative will bring a key industry to our shores that for too long has been dominated by foreign countries. We’re moving more and more companies back into the United States," Trump said.

After the remarks, Trump tested the strength of the new Corning Valor Vial. Pressing down on an old vial in a vise-like machine, he easily broke it but struggled to break one of the new vials despite putting far greater effort into it.

Veeeeerrrryyyy Interesting:

One day you really should learn the obvious difference between employment/infrastructure-creating subsidies and that of giving billions of $ in tax RETURNS to year-on-year, record profit-making corporations such as G.E. and Exxon Mobile, et al.

Bottom line is, the above post gives credit to man-child Trump, when in fact it was Obama who deserves full credit for helping to create new jobs and advancing important, life saving technologies, regionally and elsewhere.

Simply put, you and Tommy Boy are 100% WRONG... again.

Guess again.

http://www.politico.com/story/2017/08/15/trump-win-nafta-talks-241617

As a candidate, Donald Trump constantly called NAFTA the worst trade deal in history and promised “to get a better deal for our workers.”

Now that he is president, Trump is about to find out how hard it is to get an agreement that satisfies not only those workers who feel "shafted by NAFTA" but also the powerful business interests currently benefiting from billions of dollars in cross-border sales.

Top trade officials from the United States, Canada and Mexico will sit down on Wednesday to begin thrashing over hundreds of issues as distinct as Canadian dairy barriers and digital trade issues affecting both countries.

Even if negotiators from all three nations are able to come to consensus quickly on a new deal in the coming months, Trump still has to get the agreement through Congress, which past votes on trade issues have shown is no easy task.

“This whole business of renegotiating NAFTA was a campaign pledge in search of a constituency,” said Scott Miller, a former lobbyist for Procter & Gamble now at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. “No business community member, no enterprise, no farm group ever asked for this.”

So therefore Trump is about to find out he can't just get rid of NAFTA easily as he promised. Just like Obamacare. He has to work within the political system. He was elected president not king.

President Donald Trump was not standing alone on the podium when he informed the world that some participants in the Charlottesville neo-Nazi march were "very fine people."
He was flanked by Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, an immigrant from Taipei, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, who is Jewish, and Chief of Staff John Kelly, all of whom did their best to remain stone-faced while their boss veered ever more deeply into apologetics for racism.

As business executives, military leaders, and Republican office-holders join in the repudiation of Trump's statements, one question must be asked: How much longer can decent people continue to serve in Trump's cabinet?

While some - like The National Review - have largely remained in the #neverTrump camp, the Federalist had often come to the president's defence. Until now.

"I don't think Trump is going to resign any time soon," says Robert Tracinski, a senior writer for the website. "But he needs to be left hanging out there all on his own without support from anyone in his party (or from anyone in the right-leaning media). He is a vortex of destruction, and the only way to survive is to get everything we love as far away from him as possible."

Mr Trump is a survivor. He outlasted all of his political opponents and bested many of his critics and naysayers. But a day of reckoning for Republicans could be fast approaching.

Wednesday afternoon, Reuters and CNBC both reported that Trump’s Strategy and Policy Forum had decided to disband itself amid the controversy. Trump had been defiant over earlier defections—“For every CEO that drops out of the Manufacturing Council, I have many to take their place. Grandstanders should not have gone on. JOBS!” he tweeted Tuesday morning—but he saw the end in sight and tried to get ahead of the story. In a twist on the old “you can’t quit, I’m firing you,” he said he did so for the good of the members:

In practical terms, the end of these groups may not make much difference. After all, Trump has achieved so few of his goals on economic policy that the executives’ absence can’t really hurt. It is, however, a blow to Trump’s self-conception. Having long nursed a grudge over being viewed derisively by many business moguls, he reveled in inviting them to the White House. It is also a blow to his public image, suggesting that rather than being the businessman who could fix government, he can wrangle neither the private nor the public sector effectively

Former Presidents George HW Bush and George W Bush have called on the US to "reject racial bigotry, anti-Semitism and hatred in all forms".

They are the latest Republican figures to weigh in on the backlash to Donald Trump's latest remarks blaming "both sides" for violent clashes in Virginia.

Christopher Cantwell, a neo-Nazi who featured prominently in Vice News Tonight’s viral documentary of the Charlottesville protests that ended in terror, released a teary video addressed to police after learning of the warrant for his arrest, claiming “I’m terrified, I’m afraid you’re going to kill me, I really am.”

In the video, which you can watch above, a choked up Cantwell claimed that he was told there is a warrant out for his arrest, and that he was attempting to contact the police as he didn’t think it safe to “go anywhere.”

After a few pauses to pull himself together, a choked up Cantwell claimed “I want to be peaceful, I want to be law abiding, okay? That was the whole entire point of this.”

“And I’m watching CNN talk about this as violent, white nationalist protest — we have done everything in our power to keep this peaceful,” he said. “We are trying to make this peaceful, we are trying to be law abiding.”

Those comments, of course, strike as wildly detached from reality. Cantwell, along with other white supremacist and neo-Nazi groups, first descended on Charlottesville Friday night, gathering around a statue of Robert E. Lee with burning torches, throwing Nazi salutes and chanting “Jews will not replace us.”
