"Foreign Relations: A
Trump seems to be getting along with other countries well"
.... whut?! ....
At the end of the day, Trump got rid of the TPP,
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said the deal was dead long before Trump took office, perhaps a nod to even Hillary Clinton's position that the current deal would have been changed in a Clinton White House.
"TPP was dead long before President Trump took office. We await real action on trade," Schumer said.
AP: You've talked a little bit about the way that you've brought some business skills into the office. Is there anything from your business background that just doesn't translate into the presidency, that just simply is not applicable to this job?
TRUMP: Well in business, you don't necessarily need heart, whereas here, almost everything affects people. So if you're talking about health care — you have health care in business but you're trying to just negotiate a good price on health care, et cetera, et cetera. You're providing health. This is (unintelligible). Here, everything, pretty much everything you do in government, involves heart, whereas in business, most things don't involve heart.
AP: What's that switch been like for you?
TRUMP: In fact, in business you're actually better off without it.
AP: What's making that switch been like for you?
TRUMP: You have to love people. And if you love people, such a big responsibility. (unintelligible) You can take any single thing, including even taxes. I mean we're going to be doing major tax reform. Here's part of your story, it's going to be a big (unintelligible). Everybody's saying, "Oh, he's delaying." I'm not delaying anything. I'll tell you the other thing is (unintelligible). I used to get great press. I get the worst press. I get such dishonest reporting with the media. That's another thing that really has — I've never had anything like it before. It happened during the primaries, and I said, you know,when I won, I said, "Well the one thing good is now I'll get good press." And it got worse. (unintelligible) So that was one thing that a little bit of a surprise to me. I thought the press would become better, and it actually, in my opinion, got more nasty.
And, most of Trump's efforts have been to increase his own personal wealth, not the wealth of the forgotten little people he spoke so highly of when he needed their support.
How about some examples? What specifically has he done to increase his wealth at the expense of the poor?
He advertises it when he speaks.
Trump Tower. $$
Extra Secret Service detail. All living there.
Nineteen days of playing golf and the transportation of the entire detail to and fro. $$ Not to mention the time that he avoided the usual route and "took the long way home" when the picketers were asking for his tax returns.
Ivanka's very-much-paid staff now that she has been installed in an "unpaid" position in the West Wing.

They should be terrified! Clearly America doesn't want to repeal the ACA.
