    He walked that one back. It is all failure and retreat for Trump.

    You misunderstand Trump Elaine, he wants mainland China to embrace the Taiwan model of democracy and abandon Communism.

    Prosecute Clinton
    Make Mexico pay for a wall on day one
    Total support for Israel
    Replace ACA with something “terrific” No for nothing but they had 6 years to create something!
    Spend a trillion dollars on infrastructure
    Drain the swamp by getting Wall St of DC
    #17 NEVER take a vacation as President.......2nd weekend he bolted.
    Bomb the shit out of ISIS
    #34 Negotiate the release of all U.S. prisoners held in Iran before taking office.
    Aggressively challenge China's power in the world....by conceding one China?
    Aggressively challenge China's power in the world---does that include his wife daughter's Chinese imports?
    Grow the nation's economy by at least 6 percent.
    Cut the budget by 20 percent by simply renegotiating
    Use “common sense” to fix the mental health system and prevent mass shootings......by destroying access to healthcare?
    Fix the background check system used when purchasing gun----good luck
    Sign an executive order calling for the death penalty for anyone found guilty of killing a police officer.....unknown to Trump......murder is a state crime. More unknown is that the judiciary is not under the control of president.
    End birthright citizenship......Constitutional issue....there again....things unknown to Trump...law


    To name a few.

    @ Juan-Nichols

    Quite right.

    Trump has been applying his business model that is to go in hard and outrageous then back down to a compromise that should be more in his favour. In politics it does not work. Setting aside Trump's psychological problems, this is why it doesn't work to put an amateur in The White House. He has no political or diplomatic qualifications and he looks like a fool.

    Did anyone notice the handshake with Japan's Prime Minister at the press conference? It was like an arm-wrestle as Trump tried to make Shinzo Abe lean towards him. Haha!
