South Korea’s president credits Trump for talks with North Korea
https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/20 ... onald-tru/
South Korea’s president said Wednesday that President Trump “deserves big credit” for renewed talks between South and North Korea, and that Mr. Trump has offered to negotiate personally with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

“It could be a resulting work of the U.S.-led sanctions and pressure,” President Moon Jae-in told reporters. “I think President Trump deserves big credit for bringing about the inter-Korean talks.”

How many other, under different names, democrat slush fund sources also need to be stamped out?

I'm sure this is only one of many...

If that's TWA Flight 800, that was 1996, Bush 43 was in office, and isn't the NTSB still claiming it was "fuel vapors"? TWA terminated operations in 2001.
And to slip into "southern speak" from my youth, Trump's tweets definitely give democrats 'the vapors'. :smilelol5:

Clinton was President when TWA 800 was brought down by a missile as reported by hundreds and hundreds of eyewitnesses, including many military, pilots and police officers. This was in July of 1996, less than 4 months before the Presidential election, which Clinton won.

So should a plane be brought down by a terrorist missile right before a Presidential election or should it be fuel vapors in the tank of the aircraft?

So should an attack on a consulate that kills four Americans just two months before another Presidential election be a coordinated attack by the terrorist enemies of the United States on September 11 or should it be because offended protestors of a Muhammad video went out of control? Obama won reelection in case you have forgotten.

No U S commercial airplanes were brought down by vapors in fuel tanks or terrorist missiles while Trump has been President. No U S Ambassadors have died while Trump has been President. It seems ISIS is on the ropes. Canada is welcoming the foreign fighters home. Everyone is saying Merry Christmas. Algore has to explain that really cold winter weather is what we should expect from a climate crisis. Idiot Prince Charles of England has to extend his deadline for the tipping point out now 35 years after his previous 100 month tipping point passed.

Even Kim Jung Un has been playing nice.

But the MSM news is about Trump being insane http://www.newsweek.com/trump-could-des ... ned-772328 Trump responds by tweeting he is a stable genius.

The government hates you
In a victory for the Trump administration, the House on Thursday approved legislation to renew government surveillance powers while voting down new limits on how authorities can use the information that is collected.

In a remark during a meeting last week Trump violated this forum's decorum rules. The entire world condemned his comment, from the Pope, to the UN everyone denounced the comment, saying it shows Trump is a racist and a white supremacist.

Only problem with the condemnation of his statement was that he was completely correct. Haiti and almost all of the continent of Africa are exactly what he described. Sarah Huckabee Sanders tried to cover for him by saying he was not criticizing the people from those places, but the countries themselves. Only problem with that is the land is actually very nice land, its some of the people that live there, that make it what it is today. If you removed the all the people and brought in Quakers, it would probably be a paradise.

Trump later tweeted that he didn't say it and he was going to tape his meetings from now on.

So if you were hoping that if Trump stopped Tweeting, all this sort of thing would go away, your wrong.

Trump is Trump.

from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_c ... ment_Index
The Human Development Index (HDI) is a composite statistic of life expectancy, education, and income per capita indicators. A country scores higher HDI when the life expectancy at birth is longer, the education period is longer, and the income per capita is higher. It is used to distinguish whether the country is a developed, a developing or an underdeveloped country. The index was developed in 1990 by Pakistani economist Mahbub ul Haq[3][4] and Indian economist Amartya Sen. The UN report covers 185 member states of the United Nations (out of 193), along with Hong Kong and Palestine; 8 UN member states are not included because of lack of data. The average HDI of regions of the World and groups of countries are also included for comparison.
and from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haiti
It has the lowest Human Development Index in the Americas.
Current list is 185 countries, Haiti ranks 163rd.

On a scale of King Leopold to Modern South African Apartheid, how would you remove all the people and reboot the colonization of Africa?
