Obama: a strange and sad case of missed opportunity with it all handed to him on a plate. The man who could have been the superman of the American ideal and yet he chose to squander it all on identity politics and further military misadventures.
Why is the US having a second summit to discuss dismantling nuclear weapons with North Korea when it is simultaneously trying to exit all sorts of treaties and engage in an arms race with that one nation in the world with a proven nuclear arsenal second only to the US?
Very fake Twitter post indeed! I saw AOC applauding several times and even standing-up to chant ''USA! USA!'' i.e. parts on Alice Marie Johnson, HIV, on women's rights and numbers in congress and work. Oh did Trump play them! Mind you she did spit the dummy out when he mentioned America would never be Socialist.
So it looks as though a deal has been reached to avoid another shutdown and to provide some money for a wall and for various other improvements along the border. However, it's not enough for President Trump and so he has stated that he will declare a State of Emergency.
This will then, apparently, enable him to use funds for various other purposes (military, disaster relief) and apply those funds to a wall.
However, Trump then seemed to void his own case for declaring an emergency by saying, “I didn’t need to do this, but I’d rather do it much faster.”
