Tell me how long that little beauty took to agree please?

And then compare it to how quick this one was made if it comes off. Which I think to will. China wants it. No....China needs it.
Which makes me think it's bullshit what Trump says. Trade deals take years to negotiate. Unless you just decide that there's no rules what so ever.

Fair point, but on the flipside why do Trump haters latch so hard onto what CNN tells them he said and not what hes actually said or done? Strange fucking times indeed. Dude could literally cure cancer and libtards would find a way to call it racist, homophobic, etc. He could rape and murder the mothers of his strongest supporters and they’d find a way to dismiss it as he couldn’t possibly do any wrong in their minds. Very few of us are in the middle. He’s probably the most polarizing figure I’ve seen in my lifetime.

Fair point,
you have just gone up about 3000 places in my CHB rankings......

Because most people are intellectually lazy and dont care about the truth and wouldnt recognize it if it bit them in the ass

the same that can be said for 'libtards' who watch CNN is as easily applied to 'conservatards' who watch FOX

Strange fucking times indeed.

Again,totally true........

My only real issue with it is that the phrasing is more or less used by his supporters [the whole cure cancer bit,not the rest] as if that might be in the cards,or as if he had a track record of doing things for the little guy............but he doesn't,eh? In fact,he is talking populism while further entrenching the billionaires in power because,when it comes down to it,dumb folks are convinced by words..............people risking millions of dollars on him,or his cronies,see only actual results.........

He isnt going to cure cancer but we can bet on the fact that he will continue to come after worker protection,social services and the like while shoveling all he can to the 1%

Ive got no problem giving credit where its due but Im not going to clap him on the back for SAYING he is going to do something..............

Id LOVE to see us out of Syria,for instance..............but its not worth shit to SAY it and do nothing................ESPECIALLY while only saying it and ACTUALLY DOING something like getting us ever more deeply involved in the Saudi/Yemenese shitshow..............

I dont 'hate' trump for no reason,simply because he is a 'republican' [and he isnt,he is an opportunist who has no core beliefs outside personal gain]

I hate him for what he has done and for his obvious ignorance and lying bullshit..............how the fuck he manages to make Dubya sound cultured,well read and full of wisdom is fucking beyond me and,to be honest,a bit terrifying ...............

So, thread title is cute and all. But in reality.......


The top U.S. trade official told a bipartisan group of senators in a private meeting last week that major sticking points remain in negotiations with China, a sign that it is unlikely the world's two biggest economies will strike a deal before a March 1 deadline.
U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizerprovided the briefing to members of the Finance Committee, as well as other committees with a stake in implementing trade deals, including the Agriculture, Judiciary, and Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee.
“I got the impression that they’re making some progress and there’s a feeling that there’s negotiations in good faith, but the really big things haven’t been tackled yet,” Senate Finance Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) told The Hill, adding that he did not receive any assurance from Lighthizer that a trade deal would be negotiated before a new round of tariffs take effect at the beginning of next month.

“You kinda conclude that there’s a lot of indication of progress, but then it’s too soon to draw a conclusion,” Grassley said.
Asked if Lighthizer thinks he can get a deal by March 1, Grassley said, “I don’t think I can say yes to that.”





But in Trumptard world - it's already in the win column for Trump, as if it were signed, sealed and delivered. "Getting stuff done once again"? That's TDS. The only legislative achievement of truly major significance he's delivered in the last 2 years is...... a trillion-dollar handout to his fellow billionaire assholes. Everything else is just words that the Trumptards swallow unquestioningly. :patsch

:hat
