President Donald Trump defended his executive order on immigration and refugee policy Sunday afternoon in two tweets, posted at around the same time the White House released a statement from the president.

The statement stressed the importance of keeping the country safe and denied that the order amounts to a Muslim ban. But the tweets were a more direct response to criticism from Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), two outspoken Republicans.

“The joint statement of former presidential candidates John McCain & Lindsey Graham is wrong - they are sadly weak on immigration,” Trump said.

“The two ... Senators should focus their energies on ISIS, illegal immigration and border security instead of always looking to start World War III.”

SOURCE


Can Trump prove that John McCain or Lindsey Graham ever tried to start WW3?

This looks like the second time in just a couple of days where Trump committed libel via a tweet.

Trump: New York Times is 'fake news'

I believe this is a matter to be concerned about. The world is taking Trump's words very seriously.

China military official says war with US under Donald Trump 'becoming practical reality'

I feel like I may wake up one day soon to find that a Trump tweet has started a war. His tweeting is so immature sometimes that I wonder if his 10-year-old son isn't writing the material.

I hope everyone is ready for one hell of a ride. I'm starting to think the Georgia Guide Stones may have some truth to them.

Good. He needs to shut the mouthes of Graham and McCain. The last time they stood up to him, he won the Republican nomination. -Chuckle-

WWIII?

You mean the one that Trump is ramping up?

Economic Realities of Trade Wars



While China will suffer from a trade war with the United States, some experts say the Asian giant has more resilience than the U.S. The "Chinese government has plenty of financial resources to step in," said Arthur Kroeber, founding partner of Hong Kong-based financial services and research firm Gavekal Dragonomics. "I think the Chinese government has looked at this and is prepared to act," Kroeber said, speaking by phone from Beijing. In the last few decades, the communist government in Beijing has built China into the world's second-largest economy with a state-backed form of capitalism and has expanded the nation's global reach. A large portion of that growth came from heavy-handed policies that favored domestic industries, displaced more than a million people for infrastructure projects and generated questionably high levels of debt.



Woes from the Heartland


f the United States and China have a trade war, American farmers could be the ones who take the biggest hit. "A significant part of U.S. exports in China and greater China are agricultural products," said Brad Setser, a senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations. "The Chinese have made it clear that if the U.S. were to impose some kind of duties, … China would respond in some way and on exports to China," he said. China is the second largest market for U.S. agricultural exports, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture Foreign Agricultural Service. Of the $20.2 billion in farm exports to China in 2015, soybeans accounted for $10.5 billion. And in retaliation for any U.S. tariffs on China, Beijing will take action against the soybean and corn industries, China's state-backed Global Times said in an editorial after the U.S. presidential election. Rising tensions between the U.S. and China have many in the agriculture industry concerned.


The coming storm


China is preparing for a potential military clash with the United States, according to an article on the Chinese army's website. "The possibility of war increases" as tensions around North Korea and the South China Sea heat up, Liu Guoshun, a member of the national defense mobilization unit of China's Central Military Commission, wrote on Jan. 20—the same day as President Donald Trump's inauguration. "'A war within the president's term', 'war breaking out tonight' are not just slogans, but the reality," Liu said in the Chinese commentary piece.

Just about everything that comes out of Trump's mouth is a lie. The man literally makes things up on the fly. With four years of his ignorance and stupidity we'll really see who tries to start WW3.

He the worst president in history and it's only been a little over a week.

He right, he old guard Republican establishment are full of warmongers. They want nothing but war and conflict. It was those same establishment Republicans and democrats who paid for and brought the phony dossier to intelligence. It was the same people arming Isis and Syria and Libya. The same peopel who brought to war in Iraq.

If anything, Obama and his disasreous relationship woth Russia has gotten us so close to WW3. It wasn't Trump who's moving troops and artillery to the Russian border.

John Mccain is a warmongering idiot. The Vietnamese likely let him out cause they knew he'd do more destruction from within the country.

If there is war it will be because of neo-con trash like McCain and Graham who are, and always have been, cold warriors playing for the deep government. Both of these Senators should just drop their pretense and admit they are Democrats and in favor of Globalization and the war that it requires.

Trump is a very focused negotiator and I don't fear China and their typical saber rattling, it's about as disingenuous as Mexico saying "we will not pay for the wall' publicly and privately asking that we not publicly discuss paying for the wall.

The issue of trade imbalances because of bad trade agreements is coming to a head and there will be a lot of posturing and push back but not overt war. Trump is a capitalist not an ideologue and has publicly stated he is not into "nation building" which is anathema to the neo-cons and a necessary component of their agenda.

I find your statement; "just about everything that comes out of Trump's mouth is a lie," to be ironic. Let's review Obama's success story; Administration lied to the public about the Iran nuclear negotiations. Obamacare promised you could keep your doctor and save $2500.00 a year on medical... while the guys designing the program were laughing at us behind closed doors. The President used the IRS to go after the Tea Party, Benghazi was a major failure probably tied to the HRC email server. We have seen the rise of ISIS and the resulting Muslim Invasion of Europe due to Libya being destabilized. Russia has suddenly become militarily engaged in Syria plus it seized the Crimea and attacked Georgia due to Obama's flawed foreign affairs views. Let's not forget gun running to Mexican drug cartels and the racial divide that has occurred under Obama. Finally, the Trans Pacific Partnership that no one is allowed to read until it's passed. Yeah, Obama is great and the problem is Trump. Uh huh.

I find it hilarious that people on the left are defending / taking sides with McCain and Graham. Two of the biggest war hawks ever that used to be mortal enemies of peaceful liberals. I guess the enemy of my enemy is my friend.

Stating fact is not libel.

Recently, McCain literally declared that Russia committed an act of war.

Graham said he wants to make this the year America goes on th offense against Russia.

Not defense but offense,




"When you attack a country, it's an act of war," McCain said. "And so we have to make sure that there is a price to pay so that we can perhaps persuade Russians to stop this kind of attacks on our very fundamentals of democracy."

“We will be working for much tougher sanctions against Russia,” McCain said. “They attacked the United States of America. The hacking was an attack and it should be treated as such.”

“We strongly urge our colleagues to enact more meaningful and stronger sanctions against Russia because of their attack,” he added.

Graham said he hopes to “make 2017 a year of offense.”

One can only hope that the Trump ,Putin phone call was Donald asking Putin to be a go between and not pay attention to the rhetoric as that was being done for war hawks optics . Donald already did China a big favor by canceling the TPP .

Why the hell is McCain and Graham still even relevant in Congress?

Can someone please send these fossils to the Smithsonian? These two are glaring examples of swamp creatures.

Shame McCain even made it home all those years ago.

Isn't it great to have someone in office who isn't a career politician that's afraid to say what everyone is already thinking?

Trump is a billionaire who could have spent his twilight years sipping shrimp cocktails and banging supermodels on a private island, instead he chose to put everything on the line to try to fix this mess and set the country back on track.
