    I am so impatient with the press and their questions. I really don’t know how the President is able to meet this bunch of hyenas face on and calmly take their insolent questions. I would never be able to do that. I am sure I would launch myself straight out into the crowd kicking and punching and pulling hair. Just one reason why I am not running the country.

      Sylvia I do understand what you are saying but our President is a complete MASTER and was prepared to destroy both Bill Clinton and Barry from Kenya in his response about Sheriff Joe. He had his notes ready because these MORONS are so damn predictable. I bet you Bill and Barry are not happy that their dirty laundry was exposed for the world to hear.

      Folks will research the names our President provided and will research Sheriff Joe and will realize what a great man both our President and Sheriff Joe are! It also kills their talking points because they don’t want people to hear about Sheriff Joe now that they learned about Bill and Barry’s little secrets!

      The man is a LION that loves to kill JACKALS and HYENAS! He ate well again today!

        Excellent response of stating the criminals Clinton and Ozero pardoned starting with Marc Rich. PT went into great detail, made it lengthy so noe one could miss the point and you could hear a pin drop. I had to chuckle a bit though as I thought what these foreign leaders must be thinking during these press conferences as the dirtly laundry that gets aired. PT handles it head on and takes the. Opportunity for a slam dunk. Oddly I thought it was a fairly good presser! At least they weren’t jumping on the chairs.

        • Your comment about “jumping on the chairs” made me think of Jim Acosta during this press conference. Pres Trump called on him. They traded jokes about Acosta not being related to Labor Secy Alexander Acosta. Jim Acosta’s first question was about PDJT talking about fake news and how it discredits the news media and could adversely affect the first amendment. Pres Trump answered the question with facts (“you should watch you own show Jim, it’s very one sided”). You could see that Acosta wanted to keep challenging the Pres but when PDJT held up his hand and said “just a minute”, Acosta said “of course” and sat down. I think that somebody from the administration told him that if he couldn’t be respectful he would not be called on. Apparently it worked.

        I wholeheartedly agree. Was just driving a little while ago and listening on the radio to the press conference. I just got done texting one of my friends and telling him what an incredible response he had to the gotcha question in relation to Sheriff Joe. I told my buddy that,” our POTUS handled the press conference like a boss!” The detailed and specific response to that gotcha question from the CNN reporter of the names, crimes, etc that were pardoned by Bill Clinton and Obama sure must’ve ruffled some feathers I’m sure. That’s our man!

        The only problem is that fake news edits out anything they don’t want their audience to hear, ie,, “He is a ..man.” Then the pundits jabber back and forth while muting him out of their conversation. This is why I edit the fake news media out completely and ignore their three ring circus. They will never, ever give our President a fair shake, so quit hoping against hope and just move on. Boycott their sponsors. Same as D.C. swamp critters, just vote/primary them all out and start all over again.

        • Roberts said: “I would congratulate you with your preparedness, but the question was quite obvious.” In other words, he admitted that it didn’t take much brains to figure out he or somebody else was going to ask that question. So although he admired the preparedness of President Trump, it wasn’t as praise-worthy and impressive as it would have been, if President Trump came as well prepared for a question which was not so obviously going to be asked in that press conference.

    • I liked the way Niinistö took his chance and reframed the climate change question into an anti-pollution and pro-economy answer. Normally he doesn’t do that, as there are too many Green people in the media in Finland. They crucify anybody who says anything against climate change mumbo jumbo. But he cleverly avoided the gotcha question targeted against Trump (the hidden subtext “Well, did you tell big bad Mr. Trump that he’s wrong about climate change?”), and aligned with Trump’s pro-technology, pro-economy and anti-pollution views. Niinistö is pretty gutless in Finnish politics, he’s very carefully staying within the establishment Overton window, but he is not a total dummy. I’m happy he rose to the occasion in this case, which he’s not doing in Finland.

    I think if SD did a piece on NAFTA after that press conference, he would score the chances that a deal gets done at Zero. Our President is patiently waiting for the moment to announce that he has signed an EO to start the six month termination clock on NAFTA. At the same time he will announce that our Killers are starting discussions on a bilateral deal with Canada 🇨🇦 and Mexico 🇲🇽. He hopes to have both of them done by the time the six month clock runout.

    There is absolutely Nothing and I mean Nothing that the CoC, Uniparty, Big Club, China 🇨🇳, MSM can do to stop him. It feels great when we are sitting on ALL the leverage.

    I was impressed with Finland’s president’s comments on Russia. Firm, but open to negotiation. President Trump remains optimistic, despite the ridiculous Russophobia over the past year, for a good future relationship with Russia.

    • Finland is one of the few countries in Europe which still has a conscription army. That means that all Finnish men are obliged to do either military service or civil service for 6-12 months depending on the tasks they are trained for. Then they go back to civilian life and are called for a few days of refresher training every few years until they become too old to be considered active reserves. So virtually every Finnish man is a soldier.

      Also, since we’re not a rich country as such, our Defense Forces need to buy

      Like

      • Also, since we’re not a rich country as such, our Defense Forces need to buy military equipment with the best possible bang for the buck ratio. The equipment has to be battle-tested, winter-hardy and easy to maintain and it must not cost too much. Our Hornets bought in the early 1990’s are coming to the end of their usage period so Finland is shopping around for new fighter jets now. The last time we bought them we did a good deal where we did a part of the assembly in Finland, making the very expensive jets more affordable and creating more jobs in Finland. I hope Niinistö makes a similar win-win MAGA + MFGA deal again.

        We don’t have a massive number of fighter jets, but what we do have are well maintained and flown by the best pilots. Finnish pilot training is among the best in the world, since we’ve always needed to depend on quality, not quantity. When the Winter War started, our Air Force only had about 30 fighter planes, all pretty much obsolete and some of them were without weapons. But we had really good pilots who were ready to use advanced and sometimes even daredevil aerial combat tactics facing up to huge numbers of more advanced Russian aircraft flown by shoddily trained pilots. The Finnish Air Force was the first to develop the Finger-four flying formation and I’ve heard stories told by Finnish veterans how they dove from the clouds into the middle of Russian bomber flight formations. They would purposely fly in the middle of an enemy formation because they could shoot the enemy in all directions and drop quickly and efficiently many planes while the Russians were scared of shooting back for fear of hitting their own planes if they missed the Finnish fighter plane. The highest scoring non-German flying ace of all times is a Finn, Ilmari Juutilainen.

    • About the relationship with Russia: we have a long tradition of doing business with Russia. We fought 2 wars against them, the Winter War and the Continuation War. There was a long period after the wars we call the Danger Years when the Russians tried to meddle in our internal politics and actually had a rented military base on Finnish soil, kinda like Russia rented Sevastopol on Crimea from Ukraine. That ended in 1952 when we also hosted the Summer Olympics in Helsinki. We conducted our foreign policy according to the Paasikivi-Kekkonen doctrine where the corner stone idea was this quote by President Paasikivi: The start of wisdom is acknowledging the facts. We had a big, aggressive neighbor with nasty ideology and we couldn’t do anything to change that geographical fact. So we had to find a way to live with it.

      We developed friendly commerce relationships with the Russians, our presidents developed good personal relationships with the Russian leaders and we talked nicely about them in the public. We had showed them that trying to invade Finland was extremely costly and we kept up that credible military deterrent by maintaining a strong army throughout the years. But by talking nicely with them and doing business with them and maintaining a military non-alliance policy (we stayed out of both NATO and Warsaw Pact), we taught the Russians that Finland was better for them as a peaceful neighbor. And in those times we had real leaders, so the Russians listened to us. Paasikivi was a strong personality followed by Urho Kekkonen, who once told Nikita Khrushchev that even if the rest of the world went Communist, Kekkonen would maintain a free democratic society in Finland. Khrushchev just took it with a laughter, respecting the firm setting of boundaries by an esteemed colleague.

      It’s not completely for nothing that we have the following joke about Kekkonen and Brezhnev:
      Brezhnev was visiting Finland and like always, Kekkonen took his visitor to sauna and poured plenty of vodka and was a very gracious host. They were having a good time and Brezhnev said to Kekkonen: “My dear friend Urho, we’re having such a good time and being such good friends. Shouldn’t we make our friendship even closer? Let’s eliminate the border between our countries, we’re practically brothers. Let’s have one country from the Gulf of Bothnia all the way to the Bering Strait!”
      Kekkonen thought for a moment and said: “No, let’s not do that. I’m already over 70 years old. I’m in great shape for my age, but I feel like I’m too old to be the President of such a huge country!”
