    I’m always so amazed that President Trump can travel like that and be functioning in vastly different timezones. Look at that schedule, the first event is at 2:15am eastern US time. Very difficult to participate in such high level important events and look perfect when you are 6 hours off of your usual schedule, especially if it’s in the middle of your night. I’m so glad the Trumps were already world travellers and are used to their body clocks being brutalized like this.

    Fake News Attacks again with this headline:

    “Trump Hints at Regret Over China Trade War but White House Insists He Was “Misinterpreted”

    The WH response was:

    “The president was asked if he had ‘any second thought on escalating the trade war with China’,” Grisham said in a statement. “His answer has been greatly misinterpreted. President Trump responded in the affirmative—because he regrets not raising the tariffs higher.”

    And the media calls their own assumptions to PT as backtracking. In reality, it is their own stupidity for making assumptions and calling that news.

    Amazing.

      In the brief seconds I was there, heard him throw out that “the President has second thoughts on escalating the trade war with China…”

      The spin doctors are always hard at work to find any quote they can weaponize by removing the context. Gaslighting media at its “finest”.

    The Iran Foreign Minister went to Biarritz to “defuse tensions” lol Macron is like Socks, total JV, doing these ballsy moves like they’re big league. Does France really want to be an ally of Iran? Didn’t work out so well when they tried to work out a deal with the Nazis ….

      France has been allied with Iran since the 1st Ayatollah, who replaced to Sha. France sheltered him from the US and the Sha. Then gave him diplomatic and media support as well as flew him back to Iran.

      As for other EU members, consider Germany provided chemicals to both sides, in the Iran-Iraq war, to make nerve agent while Belgium provided support to make artillery.

          Great characterization … “vultures who finance cultural corrosion, incite conflict, and lurk about the fringes of nat sec and hot zones.” Deeply corrupt nation states that are more like a criminal consortium than functioning civil governments. Is there a dime’s worth of difference between organized crime and totalitarian regimes? Same ethics, same moral rot, same single-minded pursuit of power and same bestial perspective of human life and destiny of humankind.

        Germany not only provided banned WMD supplies but built most of the deep underground bunkers and command posts for much of the Mideast despots. In Desert Storm all of the way through the GWOT they ALLEGEDLY provided data on them to the allies who bombed them.

        There is also ALLEGED German complicity in the new Mideast Gaza tunnels that allow the Palestinians to store and carry munitions into Israel and ALLEGEDLY even complicity in the cartel tunnels being built from Mexico into the US to transport drugs and illegals. Nothing official being released on the US connection but the level of sophistication of some tunnels is said to be above what the cartels could do and is strikingly reminiscent of some Mideast smuggling tunnels. Israel isn’t openly saying who designed the tunnels but some sources quoted say that the IDF sent combat engineers to an undisclosed European country for training on how the Gaza tunnels are designed/built and how to counter them.

        Seeing Germany’s recent past in Mideast government tunnel/bunker contracting and how some 70+ years after WWII we’re still finding hundreds of miles of sophisticated 3rd Reich-built tunnels and bunkers all over Europe, I have to wonder.

          Untrustworthy Ms. Merkel, to covertly undermining your ally’s peace making.

            To me Merkel’s a mouthpiece for the real power brokers who run Germany. Since the end of the war those who create wealth have run Germany as they were critical to Germany’s recovery. If you look sat the frontline businesses that rebuilt Germany and still hold a massive economic sway in the country you see businesses that prospered DURING the war also. I can’t really complain as my two primary carry guns are Walther and my three main hunting rifles are Mausers and my family before me carried those brands in war for over a hundred years.

            Yeah, Sisi’s going to clean up those tunnels like I’m going to rebuild the Great Pyramid. If he hires someone from the 1st World, especially the companies whose people built them, he might get the job done but from what I’ve seen of the Egyptian military in operation…yawn.

                People forget that many of the German industries (I.G. Farben, Messerschmidt, Krup, Volkswagen, Mercedes, etc) that prospered during the war prospered after.

                The Allies had to get Germany back on its feet as the threat of a Communist revolution in ruined Europe, Germany especially, was very real. The Marshall Plan was vital but it couldn’t do it without a lot of forgive-and-forget for the industries post-war.

                BTW, another factor was the dedication of the German civilians to use their personal stock to get the economy back up and going. While much of Europe was in a post-war malaise there were German civilians scavenging in the rubble for items to fuel their economic regrowth, even breaking up their meager holdings of furniture to fire the furnaces. Germany’s recovery was notably faster, more robust and more sustained than any other of the major countries so I guess you could say Germany reached much of its WWII goals anyway.

                Something not usually discussed is the interaction between several large US companies with Germany before and during the war.

    To put Macron’s agenda in its proper perspective and proper level of priority, the President should assign staffers to “listen in” and vote NO to any motions.

    Then announce his agenda to actually solve real issues in bi-laterals or small groups if appropriate.

      The media will keep this meme up until they think they have talked down the economy. Hope springs eternal for them. Even a degree in economics doesn’t guarantee any knowledge of the subject as we have seen recently with AOC. There are very few with any capabilities in the field.

      Macron is really out of order here. France is firmly (for now) part of the EU. Macron is not an official representative of the EU. He is the President of an EU-beholden country. Macron should not be talking, privately or publicly, about anything related to the UK’s exit from the EU. By being part of the EU France has given up any ability to be a sovereign nation. So Macron needs to just STFU, bend over, and let Juncker and Tusk have their way..

    I’m sure the amount of traveling the Trumps did before being in the White House helped with their ability to handle events like this. Likely Trump is an old hand at knowing exactly what works for himself and maybe what drugs help. Something like Ambien works wonders if you don’t have side effects.
