What a refreshing change from ''Get to the back of the queue!'' to ''We will make a phenomenal free trade agreement after Brexit!''
There is no 'refreshing change' just like when Obama and those in his sphere intimated the ' back of the queue' nonsense. Ofc apologists on both sides will mount an admittedly tepid defence, it all means squat.

It is all bluster. From the former guy and from this guy. It's all about actions and self-interest. We will see when bluster ends, where it will all lead.

But sure, if nonsensical phrases gets you revved up, raise your hands up in the air and wiggle it all about.

Trump says 'climate change goes both ways'

"'Don't forget, it used to be called global warming, that wasn't working, then it was called climate change, now its actually called extreme weather because with extreme weather you can't miss,' the president said.

Mr Trump pointed to past examples of weather disasters to refute the idea that 'extreme weather' is becoming more common due to climate change.

'I don't remember tornados in the United States to this extent but then when you look back 40 years ago we had the worst tornado binge we ever had. In the 1890s we had our worst hurricanes.'"

U.S. set to announce 'significant' sanctions on Iran as tensions simmer

"President Donald Trump may have called off the airstrikes but tensions between the United States and Iran looked set to ramp up elsewhere Monday.

The United States is set to start the week by announcing 'significant' sanctions, while Iran said it could shoot down another U.S. drone if necessary."

One US drone for every censure or sanction? This looks like a losing battle.

"Ivanka Trump, right, turns back to look at Prime Minister Justin Trudeau during the G20 summit event on women's empowerment in Osaka on Saturday."

Let's discuss.

Did someone make a joke? Did the interpreter make a mistake? Is Trudeau is laughing at Ivanka because she's only there due to her dad, rather than her own efforts?

Some people will argue the same reason Trudeau became PM is because of his father.

That said nearly 3 years into the term I am surprised people are still shocked at her role. It's standard modus operandi by now like staying at Trump hotels and resorts whilst on official government business.

Huge outrage from the globalist shills in parliament. Best UK ambassador ever!
They really don't get how far they've drifted from mainstream opinion. The Daily Mail has been especially cringeworthy in its attempts to spin this into the anti-Boris and Brexit narrative. The more they spin, the more they expose themselves as paid for hacks.

I find it very odd that our Ambassador in Washington was using the language of CNN in his memos. Strange cat, have this current crop of civil servants and embassy staff no class or ever bothered to learn the craft of statesmanship?

The Daily Mail was never paid for hacks? People treated it as a serious piece of journalism? I thought that was The Telegraph.
The Daily Mail was the paper of middle England so you could gauge public mood from it. The Daily Express was very similar and somewhat better IMCO. The Telegraph represented the opinions of the establishment and The Thunderer/The Times was better for investigative journalism and The Sunday Times was once the benchmark of quality journalism and photo-journalism in the UK. The Times journalist, Andrew Norfolk, was the first MSM to break the grooming gang scandal. Now The Telegraph and The Times have disappeared behind paywalls, so who knows?

Then you had the press for titillation, celebrity gossip and shoddy journalese.

Trump says progressive congresswomen should 'go back' and fix the places they 'originally came from'

"So interesting to see 'Progressive' Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run"

"Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came, then come back and show us how it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!"

"Tlaib, a Palestinian American, was born in Michigan; Omar, a Somali refugee, moved to the U.S. when she was 12 and is a naturalized U.S. citizen; Ocasio-Cortez, who is of Latin-American descent, was born in New York; and Pressley, who is African American, was born in Cincinnati."

^Ah yes, the old "if you don't like it, leave" argument.

It seems to me that Trump doesn't like many things about the US - members of his own party, members of his own administration, the entire Democratic Party, a multitude of other people, virtually all media with the (general) exception of Fox News and many other things. Surely, by his own logic, he too should leave.

Of course, it's a ridiculous and facile argument. One can love something passionately, and yet not like all aspects of that thing. If no-one is allowed to criticise without being told "go away", then how can anything improve?

While Trump is a fool for branding them all foreign-born and no amount of spin can take the stink off his tweets, 3/4 are dem shitbag idiot disrupters who are as bad for their party (or worse) than Trump is for the Rep.

Why do they include Pressly who says nothing at all that registers as anything? Just because she is a freshman female of colour?

Goddam y’all are fucked at the federal level. It’s like a political Special Olympics. Or maybe Gumby olympics.

Trump's Twitter Blitzkreig/Kissinger strategy is going to deliver. He can keep those narcissist intersectionists centre stage and the Democrats have no option but to circle the wagons and defend. The weakest link is Omar, she's the rock the Democrats will likely perish on. At the decisive moment, forget that she may or may not have married her own brother to get him a Green Card, it will be her cosy relationship to Islamists that will be exposed and alienate decent America.

All Trump needs to do is keep these idiots centre stage and with their own lust for publicity, the job is as good as done. And they say Trump is a narcissist!

The MSM doesn't do the profession of journalism any favours either. I watched Trump speaking about Omar and the crowd were cheering and the journalists shrieking shrill hysterical questions when trying to counter Trump is an embarrassment. They will not beat or get Trump that way.

The Squad just handed over DJT another win. All Dems have to do is not to be dum dum.
They keep on underestimating Trump, falling for their own claptrap that he is the cartoon caricature of Orange-Man-Bad.

This "The Squad" moniker is just so fucking lame.
Maybe include ''Demolition'' instead of ''The'', because that's exactly what they're doing to the Democrats.

The Squad are inherently racist: they're attempting to use the ''quality'' of race and colour to be equal, or even superseed, the virtues of character, competence and justice. Inherently they carry an evil message i.e. you will be judged on the colour of your skin.

Current state of the Dem candidates with the exception of Uncle Joe, though he is falling behind. The Dem strategists must not learnt anything from the 2016 election, stop playing victimhood.

Free stuff is attractive, but if it's free you don't really appreciate it. It's a ticket that won't get you very far. Look at the cult of Corbyn in the UK, pretty much finished now and the toxicity exposed to all but the most zealous anti-semitic Marxist. But it is worthy of study the strange culture where very privileged individuals in the USA can self-identify as being victimized i.e. multi-millionaire professional footballers, film and television stars, those who have had scholarships to university on the strength of their soccer prowess. You wouldn't see any of that in most of Europe in contrast.

Ultimately, the message of The Squad is racist, toxic and won't gain traction enough to create the revolution they're dreaming of.

Trump's message was that I will Dirty Harry deliver you from the politics of the swamp and endless war, it resonated as it was ultimately positive. These idiots are delivering the message that you will be judged by your skin colour, race, ethnicity and where you are in the pyramid of victimhood. And dare any of the LGBT's step out of your group identity you will be punished and made a non-person. It's so unbelievably toxic and negative, only the legacy media and those with brain syphillis could think it was a winning platform.
