Well, I care what Trump DOES.  He talks all the time.  He uses it often well to get what he wants without doing what he says.  If you're going to obsess on what he says like that, be prepared to be offended and outraged for the next six years. 
What? Why six years? Are you thinking Nancy Pelosi will live six more years? Shocked

Disclaimer: For those who love Nancy and want her to live forever...

Why? Is that really what she wants?

What about a poll...

https://reason.com/2019/06/06/trumps-legal-authority-to-impose-tariffs/?utm_medi...

"The bottom line: while earlier instances of unilateral tariff impositions by the Trump Administration (on goods from China, on all steel and aluminum imports, etc.) were all premised on broad presidential authority granted in various trade-related statutes (e.g. Section 301 of the 1974 Trade Act), Trump is basing his power to impose the new Mexican tariffs (scheduled to go into effect on June 10) on "the authorities (sic) granted to me by the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (IEEPA)."

The IEEPA [full-text here] kicks in once a national emergency has been declared with respect to an "unusual and extraordinary threat … to the national security, foreign policy, or economy of the United States." The IEEPA then gives the president facing such emergency the power to:

    regulate … or prohibit … any … transportation, importation, or exportation of … any property in which any foreign country or a national thereof has any interest … or with respect to any property, subject to the jurisdiction of the United States."



And of course Trump, like every President since Harry Truman at least, has declared his own "National Emergency". I think all of the previously declared National Emergencies" are still with us...



"But putting aside the constitutional questions, one has to hope that at some point Congress will return to its senses and re-assert its fundamental law-making powers by either repealing or, perhaps more sensibly, providing for a 15- or 30-day "sunset" provision that will nullify the presidential actions unless during that period Congress approves them via legislation, by majority vote in each chamber."

Edit: Probably I should have put this in the "Congress" thread...

Breaking News

Trump announced late last night that he had suspended plans to impose tariffs on Mexico, tweeting that the country “has agreed to take strong measures” to stem the flow of Central American migrants into the US.

However, the deal struck between the US and Mexico falls short of Trump's initial goals.

The big victory for Trump is that asylum-seekers will now be returned to Mexico while their claims are adjudicated, instead of housed on the US side of the border.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders ignored the Presidents deal and said:

“Our position has not changed. The tariffs are going forward as of Monday.”

Economic uncertainty causes all sorts of market distortions and economic problems in general... Unless you are an insider, in which case big profits are easily come by... I've heard that, I've never been an insider myself.

Speaker Pelosi is under tremendous pressure to call for Trump's impeachment, but she recalls the impeachment of Bill Clinton in February 1999, and how it backfired on Republicans trying to destroy Clinton.

The Senate did not convict, and Clinton's approval ratings skyrocketed.   Pelosi knows the same would likely happen with Trump. 

“I don’t think you should impeach for political reasons, and I don’t think you should not impeach for political reasons. It’s not about politics. It’s not about Democrats and Republicans. It’s not about partisanship. It’s about patriotism to our country.”

Pelosi knows that it's best to wait for for Trump's re-election and THEN impeach.

Yesterday, however, Trump said that he would listen to a foreign country who had dirt on the democrats.

"I think you might want to listen -  - there isn't anything wrong with listening."

This enraged democrats, and now the pressure to impeach has never been greater.

It's pathetic listening to Democrats blow off that Hillary paid for foreign influence.  Democrats routinely leverage foreign influence.  There was Gore and the Chinese.  It's another acute case of TDS

And if you hear of a crime, or know of a crime that's been committed, the law says you must report it. Smiley

World Socialists, often known as Democratic Socialists, believe that nations are in the way of world socialism, and the only thing that counts is that Democratic Socialists help each other all over the world. They believe it's moral and just to have the Chinese Communist Party help out anywhere it can in the cause of Democratic Socialism. They don't feel bound by our laws. Like other radical ideologues, they believe they answer to a higher law.

Trump delivered a powerful speech from Osaka, Japan:

"We're going to give [Japan] a list of what we want them to buy.". . . "Ethanol is a very big deal". . . " We're the hottest show in town!"

Ok.  Our president is an idiot. That's no secret.

At least he's smarter than the socialists.

That's enough reason to celebrate, isn't it?

Maybe he's smarter than a few of the politicians running for office and claiming to be socialists... In general, I think Trump and socialists are about equal in their ignorance of economics. Cry
