ABC News - Singapore summit echoes Hitler-Chamberlain meeting in 1938, but offering 'lots of great condos' in our time

 

A great condo

 


Although it was ostensibly portrayed as an effort to rid North Korea of nuclear weapons, Mr Trump unveiled another goal in a news conference after the meeting in Singapore.

 

"As an example, they have great beaches," Mr Trump mused. "You see that whenever they're exploding their cannons into the ocean. I said, 'Boy, look at that view. Wouldn't that make a great condo.'"

 

He went on, "You could have the best hotels in the world right there. Think of it from a real estate perspective. You have South Korea, you have China, and they own the land in the middle. How bad is that, right? It's great."

 

 

Echoes of Adolf Hitler meeting in 1938

 

 

It was a revealing moment, but it also brought to mind another meeting between a Western leader and another strongman, this one from Germany, that took place 80 years ago.

 

In September, 1938, British prime minister Neville Chamberlain traveled to Munich, along with French prime minister Eduard Daladier and Italian dictator Benito Mussolini, to meet with Adolf Hitler.

 

The meeting resulted in an agreement that allowed Germany to annex a portion of Czechoslovakia, after Germany had reclaimed the Rhineland and took control of Austria. It was clear that Germany would take control of the German-speaking Sudetenland by force, unless European leaders would get out of his way.

 

Chamberlain agreed, thinking that war had been avoided. And in one of the biggest miscalculations in history, he told a crowd in front of Buckingham Palace: "I believe it is peace in our time."

 

In fact, Germany's ambitions did not end there, and Britain declared war on Germany a year later.

Of course they do.  This is the message they've been getting - in this case from Trump's dear friend, Hannity:

 

 

2018:

 

“I think that the president deserves a lot of credit for being willing to talk to somebody that everybody thought would be a bad idea,”

 

 

 

When Obama was POTUS:

 

“Barack Obama catering to the world’s dictators is literally the Neville Chamberlain of our time"

 

 “Now is it just me, or does it look like President Obama was more willing to give him time to our enemies than our allies?"

"Senior Republican senator Bob Corker complains about 'cult like' support for Donald Trump"
By Jeremy B White

"In a sign of Mr Trump's influence, a Republican congressman lost his seat in a race that turned on support of the president"

"A Republican senator bemoaned the “cultish” atmosphere around Donald Trump the morning after allegiance to the president proved a key factor in Republican primary elections.

'It’s not a good place for any party to end up with a cult-like situation as it relates to a president that happens to be purportedly of the same party', Bob Corker told reporters.

The Tennessee Republican occupies the increasingly lonely position of an elected Republican who is willing to publicly defy the president. Lent a freer tongue by his decision to not seek re-election, Mr Corker has sharply questioned Mr Trump’s decisions and said the administration appeared to be 'just making stuff up as they go along'."

Donald has been doing this for 70 years, often getting away with it.  undecided

Trumps companies also make a huge amounts from the "Fundraisers" as well by having them at there own properties and charging the The Trump Foundation sometime greater than market rates for the privilege. So a fundraiser may "raise" $500,000, out of that $500,000 they pay in fees $490,000 to various trump companies leaving $10,000 actually raised, Trump himself effectively gives nothing to charity.

https://edition.cnn.com/2016/09/12/politics/donald-trump-foundation-charity/index.html

 

His charity is his charity in name only. The charitable contributions from it are not his funds.

 

And "On the campaign trail, Donald Trump has touted his political contributions as a form of business savviness, boasting that he has "given to everybody" for favors in return."  Hence he didnt give, he bought.
