Not really. If Hillary felt completely confident in winning, she wouldn't be stooping to so many insults against Trump of late, never mind rumors of how she's preparing for the debates which reflect someone who's anything but confident.

Who said anything about being sure of winning?

Being sure that Trump isn't going to win back a significant amount of votes from the Latino segment would be another story.

Donald Trump's statement at the press conference he gave jointly with the President of Mexico, Enrique Pena Nieto, is a major revision of some earlier statements that he has given on the campaign trail in both tone and substance.

Here is a link to his complete remarks. Scroll over to 45:24, when Mr. Trump begins to speak. (The Mexican President's remarks, in Spanish, begin at 31:50 approximately, preceded by thirty minutes of dead air on the Reuters feed.)

Trump's tone is completely different in this situation. One major thing he says is that NAFTA needs to be improved, not scrapped. Commentators will be mulling his statements over to analyze the degree to which they represent actual changes in position on major matters of trade policy.

Trump actually said on the campaign trail that Nafta needs to be renogitated and if it can't be, then it needs to be scrapped.

Can you explain leaving out the renogition phase?

Have you listened to his remarks? He seems to have made up his mind on the subject, which as far as I can tell from what he said, is that the agreement needs to be improved, not scrapped. I'm not going to logic chop with you. His tone is much less peremptory than it has been to this point in the campaign.

His remarks on Mexicans themselves were very laudatory, almost to the point of being fawning. "Spectacular", "hard working" were typical descriptives used. It would be funny to hear the response if he said such things at one of his rallies in the States.

His tone was of coordination to solve mutual problems, not of an injured party seeking redress, which has been his predominant tone to date.

I think this speech represents Trump's first appearance in the real world of international diplomacy. He is much less bellicose than the Donald Trump we are used to.

I'm no historian, but I would hazard a guess that Donald Trump is on the steepest learning curve in the history of American presidential politics.

He is, judging by this visit to Mexico, ascending that curve.

I don't support Donald Trump, but I don't dismiss him in the manner of the Washington Post. I think he can win this election, if he shows the American public that he is not a bumptious clown all the time and has a real capacity to understand and tackle problems that don't have simple solutions. In this appearance in Mexico he has given evidence of that.

Politics is about making deals that are mutually beneficial. Trump is a deal maker. Winning in politics is not taking all the marbles, particularly in the international arena. Everybody has to get what they need out of international trade deals. Wiping everybody out is how you make wars.

I think he is starting to "get it". Do we have President Nieto to thank for that? Maybe.

Well, spoke too soon. Apparently there is a dispute as to what was discussed.

Testosterone...Balls...
See... these things are not needed to make Smart decisions. Or to run a country.
This is sexist garbage.

What do you think Hillary will do? Put her hands on her hips, tap her foot and scowl at the illegal criminals? No she will be tough. This talk about open borders and people flowing in are way overblown by trump and his team. He exaggerates everything. Including his belief that she is frail. He too thinks it takes balls (and a penis) to lead the country.

"See... these things are not needed to make Smart decisions."

Absolutely correct.. Hillary has the biggest set of balls I have ever seen for deciding to have classified information on an unclassified server in her house.

Proof that balls are not needed to make smart decisions, but sometimes necessary to make colossally stupid decisions.

" He too thinks it takes balls (and a penis) to lead the country."

So what,,,you think all it takes to run the country are a set of boobs and a vagina... what's your point?
