    What I gather is that Trump is sending the message But if you become allies with us you’re going to be treated really well and if you don’t we’re going to kill you all. I have no problem with that message. What’s funny is about 99% of the people on this board have never even had a negotiation in their life much left one with a C level prospect.

    Trump has many problems that come along with him being the president. One of them is not a problem with negotiating deals. Whether you like his style or not he has more experience doing that then the last four presidents combined. I remember so much debate about who is more qualified to be president. Well in this area Trump has a ton of experience. Whether you like his politics, his style or whatever you’d be blind idiot to not be able to see that.

    The stock market is not a gauge to the economic position of the country. It is a gage of the investors feeling about what they think might be the best place to direct the market. It’s a huge gambling device that increases the value of the market by inducing the investors to move around their funds to make a particular direction seem valuable. The price of the stock is not even remotely close to the actual value of the companies financial position in the stocks that are issued.

    The President has no power to manupilate the market. Only investor reaction can do that and it isn’t based on existing fiscal actions rather it is a manupilated reaction to influencing how they move their portfolios.

    Before President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un issued their joint statement on Tuesday afternoon in Singapore, before the two men met in private at a luxury hotel on the Singaporean island of Sentosa, before they shook hands with all the world watching, this much was true: Kim Jong-un had already won.

    President Trump played right into Kim's hands. He signed his name alongside Kim's on a document that, by most indications, does little to pressure the North Koreans to truly denuclearize while committing to end U.S. joint military exercises with our ally South Korea. (North Korean sanctions will remain in place for now, Trump said.) He praised Kim's "great personality." He said it was a "great honor" to appear alongside Kim.

    For Kim, the event was a coming out of sorts, a chance to show himself off to the world. He had a platform unlike any other – and far greater than anything available to him in the closed, impoverished nation he so cruelly presides over. Here was an opportunity to legitimize himself and his nation, to put North Korea on an equal footing with the mighty United States.

    By all indications, Kim departed the summit on Tuesday having achieved exactly that. President Trump and the members of his administration validated the North Korean leader in a way like never before. "[Kim] is very talented," Trump said at his post-summit press conference. "Anybody that takes over a situation like he did at 26 years of age and is able to run it and run it tough...You can take 1 out of 10,000 could not do it." Later, Trump told ABC's George Stephanopoulos: "He trusts me, and I trust him."

    And what did the U.S. get in exchange? A vague, four-point joint statement in which North Korea vaguely commits to the "complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula" with no way to verify that commitment. Trump got played by a dictator half his age.

    Let's not forget who Kim Jong-un is. Like his father and grandfather before him, Kim is a dictator and a despot. He runs an authoritarian nation. His government – if you can call it that – is one of the most brutal regimes in the world. A 2014 United Nations investigation accused North Korea of committing "unspeakable atrocities" akin to Nazi Germany. Prison camps, torture, starvation, political repression – they're all features of the North Korean regime.

    President Trump knows this. In a speech to the South Korean parliament last year, Trump spoke of the estimated 100,000 North Koreans suffering "in gulags, toiling in forced labor and enduring torture, starvation, rape and murder on a constant basis." He added, "All responsible nations must join forces to isolate the brutal regime of North Korea – to deny it and any form – any form of it. You cannot support, you cannot supply, you cannot accept."

    As the first meeting between the sitting U.S. and North Korean leaders, the summit was historic. But from the moment Trump and Kim arrived in Singapore, the event had all the trappings of a propaganda display for North Korea. For starters, the U.S. reportedly agreed to not bring up the issue of North Korea's widespread human rights abuses. Kim and his entourage were greeted by hordes of photographers wherever they went. As an Australian journalist covering the summit put it, Kim himself was treated like a rockstar:
    What a stupid assesd article. Nothing has been done yet except making an agreement in principle with follow up teams to structure the details. The Democrats have completely shown their asses over this. The would rather see this fail than hope it is a beginning of a solution. What a bunch of unpatriotic idiots. They would rather a country fail than support efforts to make things better. It completely absent of any sembelence of reasonableness.

    Hell, Bill Maher said the other day he hopes the country goes into recession to hurt Trump. Not kidding.

    There is obviously a large element of speculation to it but to act like it isn't an indicator of economic health is ridiculous.

    The left's reaction has been ridiculously petulant.

    Really? You mean like EVERY conservative didn't hope Obama failed for 8 years?

    Mitch McConnell is on record as saying ‘my number one priority is making sure president Obama’s a one-term president.’

    How about his complete FUCKING of a more than qualified supreme court nominee in Merrick Garland?

    You cunts are just getting a taste of your own medicine.
