Rikkitic: Trump has the lowest approval ratings ever.

 

I see this being propounded a lot and it does make me smirk a little as this is pollster information from the very same folk who consistently listed Trump as being behind in the lead-up to the elections. I'd suggest treating the numbers around this particular point with caution, if not with cynicism.

...
Trump ...., and most assuredly doesn’t care what America’s mainstream media say.

 

 

Well I'd disagree with that assertion for a start!  This is an "alternative fact" at best.

To listen to Donald Trump today, in America or abroad, you might conclude America was facing an existential threat.

 

 

As in:  "The lunatic is running the asylum and he has the nuclear codes." ?

Rikkitic:

 

Who is criticising? I'm just stating a couple of facts. Other facts glossed over by Bolton: Only three weeks into his presidency, Trump has the lowest approval ratings ever. There are mass demonstrations all over America against him. He has repeatedly been caught out telling blatant lies. He makes up so-called 'facts'. The American intelligence services are so concerned about his cavalier attitude towards security, that they have started withholding crucial information from him. Several government departments, along with many White House staff, are in a virtual state of rebellion. What is happening under Trump is not comparable to what has happened under other presidents. Bolton himself is a very minor figure of the right with little real weight or influence, who has supported Trump from the beginning. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

His approval rating doesn't really matter now, his approval rating in the last 6 months of his presidency that matters more.

Hopefully he is already in the last 6 months of his presidency.  wink

To listen to some of Donald Trump’s critics today, in America or abroad, you might conclude the West was facing another existential threat.

Having watched what has happened to the UK and Europe over the last 30 years or so, I would say it's not just America that is...

If this is the view of the Trump WH, then its REALLY scary. 

 

Quote, Stephen Miller. Senior Advisor to President Trump:

 

"Our opponents, the media and the whole world will soon see as we begin to take further actions, that the powers of the president to protect our country are very substantial and will not be questioned."

 

Basically claiming that the US President has absolute power, and that the courts should just fall in line.

That was a disgraceful display by a man that appears to have zero constitutional knowledge

No, but they may find themselves redeployed or retired.

I see that Michael Flynn has fallen on his sword. Wonder how many others will be going?
