    Trump slams May over ‘very unfortunate’ Brexit plan, says ‘it will probably kill’ US trade deal

    “President Trump criticized British Prime Minister Theresa May’s handing of Brexit Thursday, telling The Sun newspaper that her plan was “very unfortunate” and would “probably” kill any possible trade deal between the U.S. and the U.K.”

    TRUMP’S BREXIT BLAST I told May how to do Brexit but she wrecked it — the US trade deal is off, says Donald Trump

    “In a world-exclusive interview with The Sun, the US President said Theresa May had ignored his advice by opting for a soft Brexit strategy”

    President Trump is in Britain right now. He has just been interviewed by the newspaper The Sun: “TRUMP’S BREXIT BLAST“. Following are some quotes from the interview.

    Mr Trump said [Prime Minister] Theresa May ignored his advice by opting for a soft Brexit strategy. And he warned her any attempts to maintain close ties with the EU would make a lucrative US trade deal very unlikely. Mr Trump said: “If they do a deal like that, we would be dealing with the European Union instead of dealing with the UK, so it will probably kill the deal.”


    “I would have done it much differently. I told [Prime Minister] Theresa May how to do it but she didn’t agree, she didn’t listen to me… Deals that take too long are never good ones. If you look, she probably went the opposite way.”


    “I think the deal she [Prime Minister May] is striking is not what the people voted on, exactly. It was not the deal that was in the Referendum… it will definitely affect trade with the United States unfortunately in a negative way…” Trump tells me: “If they do a deal like that, we would be dealing with the European Union instead of dealing with the UK, so it will probably kill the deal.”

      Mark Knoller has been good all day. Lots of pics. Not too political, even though he is with CBS, he is tolerable.

      Redux on my comment on the other thread about POTUS and FLOTUS arriving at Blenheim Palace: the gown FLOTUS wore when they arrived is based on Court gowns worn in the 17th and 18th centuries by visiting Princesses or Queens of foreign Courts at their first appearances at a British Royal Palace. With this gown, FLOTUS made it clear that her position is equivalent to that of a visiting Princess to the British Court in pre-American Revolution times, in addition to the fact that she is the wife of the President of the United States in modern times. And she made sure her gown reflected this. It will NOT be lost on any British Royal who sees her in this gown.

    And while the farce hearing was being held in the DC Swamp today, more of our sacred First Amendment rights were chipped away by the City Council of CHARLOTTESVILLE, the home of Thomas Jefferson and Monticello:
    h/t 1260WCHV radio:
    The city council of Charlottesville is going to vote in the next couple of weeks on new ordinances related to “permitted events” within the city limits in order that any new ordinances go into effect before the “anniversary” of the August 2017 “Unite the Right” riots.
    Among the new ordinances is one that FORBIDS the use or carrying of any and all “weapons” that could be used at a “permitted event”, including but not limited to: firearms; sticks; stones; projectiles; sprays; or any other item that could be interpreted as a “weapon”.
    Wonder where that leaves “weapons” like car keys, hands, feet, umbrellas, or hair spray—any of which can be used in a life-or-death situation for self-defense.
    The city council of Charlottesville would rather that AMERICAN CITIZENS be rendered completely defenseless in the face of potential violence. Of course, you can bet that the city council won’t be anywhere NEAR where potential danger is.
    Another new ordinance would FORBID the wearing of “any garment” that mimics a law enforcement uniform, a US military uniform, or other garment that is worn by anyone who is not either LE or US military. This would include “camo” clothing, boots, jackets, or headgear.
    The city council of Charlottesville would rather a Hitler/SS situation obtain, where citizens can be pulled off the street and their “papers” demanded because of what is worn. That’s where the yellow “JUDEN” star came from, to mark out the Jews.

      I hope this ordinance will also be enforced against the Antifa thugs. They are the ones who bring the sticks, stones and projectiles, and use them on innocent people.

      They should also prohibit wearing masks or face coverings at public e.vents

    Liberal MSM is all up in arms about this white man who yelled at a brown skinned woman in a city park for wearing a Puerto Rico shirt. Yes, he was wrong to do that, but now he’s been charged with a Felony Hate Crime.


    So, where’s the Hate Crime designation for the brown skinned man who threw a soft drink in the face of a white teenager, then called him the n-word and several other choice lewd words and stole the MAGA hat off his head?


    To me, there’s a huge difference between someone loudly expressing his opinion and someone else assaulting and stealing from someone.

      I clicked on the link, I read the article and watched the video. The article was lacking and the video was hard to follow with respect to timeline and who was who. Did the man do more than have words with the woman wearing the Puerto Rico shirt? I did not see where he touched her.

      In the video she even stated that he nearly came close to touching her, which implies that he did not touch her. So is speaking words, in what ever tone used, now the basis of a crime? This man is being charged with a felony!

      Towards the end of the video I saw the man was roughly handled by a person and told some harsh words. It was difficult to tell the identity of that person. I think that person was not law enforcement.


    • Wisc says:

      I think that political beliefs and speech should be protected under the Constitution, and that violence against anyone for their political beliefs should be regarded as a hate crime. How else can a democracy thrive if certain viewpoints are shut down? People should be free to have their beliefs (“right” or “wrong”) without threat of violence or discrimination. Honest debate should be used to vet viewpoints.

    When liberals go berserk over GOP questions during testimony, like they did today re: Strzok, does it make you angry?

    Personally, it cracks me up.
