      Dan you are so right! I didn’t even know about this meeting. He also had a full cabinet meeting today as well. Our President is an absolute workhorse. I actually think he gains strength based on his schedule. He views every single hour as the most precious time in the world because he wants to accomplish so much for our country and its citizens.

      I loved that he had these great Governors at the WH today. I was really impressed with how well the state of Idaho is doing. The Governor was so proud to be able to talk about his state. Our President’s administration lives in these states. They really appreciate it.

      I think that when Obamacare is finally Repealed and Replaced next February, going to the state model using the Graham/Cassidy Bill will allow these great Governors to develop incredible healthcare for their individual states.

        Fle, I found out about the Governors meeting when SD posted this article. PDJT sure keeps SD busy. I counted 8 postings not counting the 2 dailys.

        Rosario was just about begging for PR to become a state while PDJT replied “Richard, you are going to guarantee two republican senators from PR?”

        Rosario did say they privatized the power company. That should be a big improvement as long as the government does not throw money at the power company.

          I want to live as a free American without the notion that just because some guy gets himself elected governor, he gets to control every aspect of my life.
          People should be looking at why Americans can’t afford to buy pills or go to the doctor, instead of looking at ways to force us to pay for giant corporate scams, or worse yet, to force us to pay for others to participate.

        Mine is as well, Asa Hutchison, from Arkansas. True establishment RINO. One of my senators, John Boozman, surprised me by being one of the 13 GOP senators for open borders, and he will hear from me today (busy yesterday) with our displeasure, and an assurance that, although we have ‘supported’ him in the past, we will actively work AGAINST his re-election. Bummer, but at least showed his true colors.

          I learned my lesson in 1995, when I worked my butt off for George Pataki, and the Republican establishment appeared to be curiously indifferent as to whether Mario Cuomo got a FOURTH four-year term as governor.
          After George won, nothing really changed.
          It looked like things changed, in the media, but the up-close reality was very different.

      Maybe I am confused here, but it seems like that governor is full of it in this. I thought the last couple times PR voted on statehood the “NO” vote won or it didn’t count. Have they voted twice recently with a YES I am not aware of? As far as I know, the last two votes in PR were in 2014 and 2017. In 2014, the “NO” vote won with 54%, and in 2017, the “YES” vote won with about 95% or so since the no’s boycotted the vote.

      It seems to be a rather controversial issue in Puerto Rico, and until they sort it out among themselves, I don’t see where President Trump has to interject himself into it. Once they successfully vote for statehood, the Constitution makes the pathway pretty clear. I am neither for nor against it, since it is up to a place to decide whether they want to be a state or not.

          Once they become a state, they won’t have to bother moving to the mainland to vote in Andrew Cuomo for president.
          Also that F.A.L.N. organization would become a big thing we don’t need.
          I want Puerto Rico to go away.
          I wish we could move the whole island farther away from us.

        Keln, I am with you. If they voted yes I am sure the Dim controlled Congress would have voted to approve. Two dim senators.

        Puerto Rico votes no because they are not subject to federal taxes, social security and medicare deductions while still getting federal aid. They are not subject to federal regulations either. Lots of paint and cosmetic factories in PR.

    I love Trump very much, with that said I follow cycles… we are in a 18-24 Month recession right now… as stock market (S&P 500) peaked in late Jan. And should hit its bottom/solid pivot in Oct 2019/Mar 2020.

    Dec 1987 = 0, Mar 2003 = 100, therefor May 2000 = 80% & Peak….

    Mar 2003 = 0, Mar 2009 = 100, 80% Peak was Dec 2007…

    Mar 2009 = 0, Mar 2020 = 100, with 80% as Peak = Jan 2018.

    That said I believe this is a stealth recession, meaning once we bottom in Oct 2019/ Mar 2020 we will see 10 years straight of astronomical growth in markets as it will be the next 0 to 80% growth segment…

    There will then be a MONSTER stock market peak in ~ May 2030 and gigantic recession until we bottom in 2033.

    Each 100 years there is a Great Recession/Great Depression – 1840’s was great agricultural recession, 1930’s obvious, will occur again as 2009 to ~ 2030 is about 20 years of solid gains like 1980 to 2000

    Is it a moveable “King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table”? Is it “A Queens Yankee in King Washington’s Court”? No! It’s President Trump and the People of the Round Table!

    These televised round tables are wonderful, even if you don’t like some of the people at them – this one with the governors, the meeting with politicians about an immigration bill, the one with the mine workers at Duluth, Mick Mulvaney’s presentation to Cabinet members, the one about sanctuary cities in California, and the round table in Long Island about MS-13. President Trump leaves Obama for dead, even when it comes to community activism.

    Obama’s legacy is being eradicated in public view and will fizzle away to a bad memory in a few month’s time. The only true thing that Obama said was that he would “fundamentally transform” America. And he did. He changed it so much to the bad that it was fix it or sink

    And one of the ways that Trump is fixing it is by changing the dynamics of political power and culture. These televised round tables do so many things at once:
    1. They humanize politics by showing the politicians in action.
    2. It compels politicians to declare their hand in full view of the public so they can’t get away with back room deals.
    3. It helps the public understand the difficulties of the decision-making process.
    4. It puts the onus of accountability on politicians.
    5. It demystifies the process of political decision making.
    6. It will inspire and encourage young people to engage in politics.
    7. IT ALLOWS THE PRESIDENT TO TAKE POT SHOTS AT THE PRESS AND PUT THEM IN THEIR PLACES. AND TO GIVE THEM A WELL DESERVED PUT DOWN IF THEY STEP OUT OF LINE.

    Just think of it. If you were to stack up and secure in a steel cage all the videos of his public appearances, a chronicle of the work he has done, a list of all the achievements of his administration, copies of all the Executive Orders he has signed, it would be higher and twice as wide as that planned monstrosity in Chicago – Obama’s Presidential Library, which will archive nothing. And which is being subsidized by a bankrupt Chicago. And the cost of which was the basis of fund-raising efforts of the Obama Foundation.

    Mighty and all as he is, President Trump should not have to, and can not do all this on his own. These round tables will allow other gifted and decent people to put their hat in the ring and work for the good of America.

        I have heard a lot about Ivanka. Don’t know if any of it is true but I do know she has skin in the game & always seems to be working.
        Just look at some of the previous kids in the White House. Jenna & Barbara wanna be with the cool kids with their snarky comments about the Trump family & showing up at pussy-hat protests. I used to respect Laura Bush but even she is making an ass of herself with her recent comments on immigration. The Obama girls appear to be hard partying druggies. If they were doing anything useful they would be on the magazine covers every week with wings & halos. Instead someone captures them on a cell phone toking on a joint in the bathroom at some bar. Chelsea Clinton is nothing but a bookkeeper for the Clinton Crime Cartel. I have heard a lot of rumors about who her real father might be but I would wager she has some DNA from Meyer Lansky in there somewhere.
        Bottom line for me is that Ivanka is Donald Trumps daughter, so she is OK in my book.

          Ivanka is also very competent at what she is doing, which includes helping governors work out solutions to challenges, such as vocational training to prepare a much-needed, skilled workforce. Plus I believe she works for no pay.

          If she weren’t President Trump’s daughter, I would still appreciate her contributions to MAGA.

            Yes, she’s a rich girl, but middle class women on up have virtually the same concerns, when it comes to home, career, and family.
            Like her father, she makes the effort to “get” how the non-wealthy live, also.
            Remember when she flew her family coach? She was harassed by half of a gay couple for it, but she makes an effort not to spoil her children.
