President Trump Interview With Maria Bartiromo…

President Trump calls in to Maria Bartiromo for an extensive interview on multiple subjects.  The president discusses his perspective on Mueller testifying; the state of the economy; the upcoming G20 talks with Chinese Chairman Xi Jinping and the status of the trade negotiations; the status of tariffs; and the U.S-Mexico border issues.

On China, President Trump doesn’t sound like he’s willing to make any concessions or retreat on any tariffs.  “They want to make a deal more than I do”, he said.

      That is all the more reason for we, Treepers, to get involved in vetting and supporting our candidates in the public square in the lead up to the 2020 election.

      I know that in Virginia, we’ve got work to do to galvanize the base and influence the shareholders or the GOPe will continue to run weak candidates.

      The crazy thing about Virginia politics is that the Dems don’t run quality candidates either, but they do support whoever it is regardless of their maladies and skeletons.

      The Republicans haven’t been in agreement since Ken Cuccinelli skipped in line over Bill Bolling 8 years ago. All he had to do was wait his turn, but he got greedy and blew up the party.

        My error, but boy was it funny, and made so much more sense that way lolol.

          ristvan,
          Not on the Mueller investigation perhaps, although I thought “the investigation looking for a crime” was not legal.

          However the coverup of Uranium 1, and several other things when he was running the FBI, might be. IMO they should be, but I’m not an attorney.

          I also want to say that I really appreciate your comments. I look for them under every article. Thank you for your input.

          I say time out here, and I could be wrong. The track Mr. Barr I believe is taking, that many grumbled about is the “policy” path. Policies inside the DOJ, if ignored have statues applied that are different than in the broader judicial system. My take on this is that Mr. Barr is taking the following path: Evaluate policy,,identify infraction, apply statute, refer for criminal charges where appropriate. When he side stepped the prospect of treason folks were upset, but I think he’s right in taking the apolitical path here, at least that’s my read. It will be dang hard to argue if an agent broke FBI policy where an accusation of treason gets very political. I don’t expect 100’s of indictment, maybe 5 key ones and feel very strongly he needs at least a if he is going to set a correction here.

        President Trump has duel priorities in dealing with the Fed. He knows bubbles can’t last forever. He knows the real estate bubble is on the precipice. Pushing it over the edge would be catastrophic for re-election, which is critical to be able to do the job he intends to do. He has to separate himself from the Fed in case that bubble goes south before the election. So I think he mostly is just making noise, I don’t think Powell will cut rates, but I don’t think he’ll raise them again

        Trump needs to be careful doing what he can’t take back. Trump picked two lulu’s with Sessions and Powell. However, Trump is entitled to a boo boo now and then when compared to all the positive Trump has done.

        Fed Reserve Act:
        “…..the President shall fix the term of the successor to such member at not to exceed fourteen years, as designated by the President at the time of nomination, but in such manner as to provide for the expiration of the term of not more than one member in any two-year period, and thereafter each member shall hold office for a term of fourteen years from the expiration of the term of his predecessor, unless sooner removed for cause by the President.”
        ***
        “…. unless sooner removed for cause by the President.” I guess it would come down to what is enough cause to justify removal. More litigation!

          Cause is generally along the lines of sabotage, theft, misuse of funds, use of inside information, drugs, drunk on duty, assault, etc.
          No, incompetence and ineptness at setting interest rates can not be considered sabotage unless there are direct witnesses to the Chairman planning to destroy the economy.

          Other cause(s) for Federal dismissal can be insubordination, abject incompetence, etc.; all in this category require extensive documentation over time, meetings with superiors and Human Resources coupled with training to correct misbehavior. A Fed Chairman’s independence eliminates most danger of dismissal for these reasons.

      The Board of Governors of the FED are not hired. They are appointed for a 14 year term by the President. (confirmed by the Senate). Many think the FED Board of Governors can’t be fired (like SCOTUS)

      Section 10 of the Federal Reserve Act states, “…each member shall hold office for a term of fourteen years from the expiration of the term of his predecessor, unless sooner removed for cause by the President.”

      No president has ever used section 10 to remove a FED Governor. The Federal Reserve Act does not define what actions would constitute “cause” for removal. It is not impossible, but is not easy, and there is no precedent.

      However, that has never stopped Pres. Trump before!

  11. You know, sometimes I think to myself – what book sealed the Trump Presidency? And it’s a pretty easy answer: The Art of the Deal.

    When this “business-mogul guy” started seriously emerging on the political arena, I decided to buy that book to try to see what makes the man tick. (By the way, I proceeded to buy the rest of them.)

    And then it occurred to me – for dozens and dozens of years, we’ve been on the butt-end of business deals negotiated by people who know absolutely nothing(!) about business, the business environment, negotiation, “the Art of the Deal™” and so on. And then we were offered a candidate with actual business experience.

    I think Maria did well, despite that she had a lot of good questions that she never got a chance to ask. Treepers know my solid positions in favor of the President, his judgement, policies, and strategies. However I think that with Maria, PDJT could have taken a few more pauses in this interview and given Maria a few more chances to ask her questions. She usually asks good, substantive questions, not the stupid, falsely-premised “gotcha” type of questions so prevalent on other networks.

    I actually found myself getting impatient with his long answers that went beyond the topic of the question and turned into mini rally speeches where he never ran out of air and Maria couldn’t respond.
