Saturday, President Trump held a rally in the ‘redneck Yankee’ state of Pennsylvania to mark his first 100 days in office, which coincided with an annual dinner of White House press, slamming the media and drawing cheers of “CNN sucks” and “USA, USA” from the majority White crowd that came to bathe their savior in mindless adoration and conservative love, many of them in those infamous red ‘Make America Great Again’ caps. A few Oreos can be seen in some photos and videos, but like a very small sprinkling of pepper in a bowl of salt. You can even see what appears to be a Latino or Filipino in one scene. Fools will be fools, what can I say?
A plan for the president to announce in Harrisburg that the United States was pulling out of the North American Free Trade Agreement fell through when Mr. Trump decided, after urgent phone calls on Wednesday from the leaders of Canada and Mexico, not to do it — at least for now.
The White House then toyed with the idea of having Mr. Trump announce that he was ripping up the Korea Free Trade Agreement. But he stole his own thunder, telling The Washington Post on Thursday that the United States might terminate the five-year-old agreement.
“It’s a horrible deal. It was a Hillary Clinton disaster, a deal that should’ve never been made,” Mr. Trump said. In fact, President George W. Bush negotiated the agreement with South Korea in 2007, and President Barack Obama renegotiated it in 2010, which is effectively what Mr. Trump is now proposing to do.
For Mr. Trump, the rally punctuated a week of frenetic, all-hands-on-deck self-promotion linked to the 100-day mark — a stocktaking milestone that he had earlier dismissed as artificial and a “ridiculous standard.”
On Friday, he taped a weekly radio address in which he declared, with a rare caveat, “I truly believe that the first 100 days of my administration has been just about the most successful in our country’s history.” He did not say which of his predecessors might have outdone him. – NY Times
Just like the Reality TV star that he was, Trump’s first 100 days in office have consisted of basically behaving like a spoiled rich brat, which he is, not really accomplishing anything, just grandstanding for his deluded fanatical followers and badmouthing anyone who doesn’t agree with or like him. I never cared for the man even during that debacle with Marla Maples back in the late 80s/early 90s, and I dislike him even more intensely now. He’s a typical older White male with condescending attitudes towards women and people of color, not surprising considering his ethnic background and the fact that he and his father were sued for racial discrimination with their housing.
Trump ended his speech with the rousing promise: “We will make America strong again, we will make American wealthy again, we will make America prosper again, we will make America safe again, we will make American great again.”
