Re: Tweets From Trump
One thing I have noticed is how effectively Trump uses Twitter.

Doesn't it strike you as kind of un-Presidential and more like El presidente? My impression is that it is intended only to manipulate the public opinion and has nothing to do with expressing his actual intent. I mean does he really intend to communicate with the Congress by way of Twitter? Has Twitter become the official podium? It seems off to me and more the behaviour of a celebrity than a public servant.

Re: The Trump Wall
...especially the financing which we haven't discussed much yet. Apparently we're going to pay for the wall ourselves and then bill Mexico. Good luck with that.

quote:
In the memo, Trump said he would threaten to change a rule under the USA Patriot Act antiterrorism law to cut off a portion of the funds sent to Mexico through money transfers, commonly known as remittances. The threat would be withdrawn if Mexico made “a one-time payment of $5-10 billion” to pay for the border wall, he wrote.

Trump is starting to remind me of the Sheriff of Nottingham. Is America so great that it has to steal from the poor to pay for the castle?

You know don't get me wrong but this is a big part of the problem.
