Trump, Carson, Pruitt...How ironic a statement while he and his "cabal" have been using the taxpayers as their personal ATM.

DONALD TRUMP AT G7 SUMMIT: PAST PRESIDENTS ALLOWED COUNTRIES TO ROB U.S. LIKE 'PIGGY BANK'

uring a press conference following the G7 summit, President Donald Trump once again rebuked his predecessors for foreign trade agreements and also denied multiple reports that the White House was met with a chilly reception at the meeting due to its isolationist policies.

"The relationships were outstanding, but because of the fact that US leaders of the past didn’t do a good job on trade—and, again, I'm not blaming countries, I'm blaming our people that represented our past—it’s gonna change," Trump said. "It’s going to change... Tariffs are going to come way down."

He continued, "We’re like the piggy bank that everyone’s robbing, and that ends."

His statement came after considerable rancor reportedly enveloped the G-7 summit, an annual meeting in which the leaders of the seven most industrialized nations—Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the U.K. and the U.S.— come together to discuss foreign affairs. Held in Canada this year, the meeting's official agenda focused on job growth, advancing gender equality, climate change and peacebuilding. Trump said that he also discussed the possibility of Russian rejoining the summit and immigration.

Brilliant observation in the comment section too....

"Obama DOJ could not aggressively target this horrible type of crime because of where it might lead. Trump is aggressively targeting this horrible type of crime because of where it might lead (and it's the right thing to do)."

obama couldnt because he knew he would uncover his friends and associates !

If you think that's a 'brilliant' observation then you are not well. Get help.


The Truth About Trump's Human Trafficking Claim - Greg Laden's Blog


Quote:
Roseanneís tweet about Trump ďsaving kidsĒ has to do with a fake claim from Trump Internet that arrests for human trafficking are up since Trump took office. There are a few things wrong with that. (a short [?] thread).

Claimís been rotating since at least last summer (when I first saw it) and we donít actually have official numbers for Trumpís administration yet. Most recent numbers are 2016.

Second, the specific number Trump folks like to cite is about 6k, compared to ~2k under Obama (these are all numbers from memes about this). The 2k number from Obama is Homeland Security Investigation arrests. The number for Trump is Ö well. ?????

But all that matters is that Trump Has a Bigger Number Than the Black Guy, and they arenít going to check their sources anyway. Most of the way folks appear to have arrived at that number is by looking at the number of trafficking arrests *worldwide*.

They also have culled the number by combining a bunch of different reports of ICE arrests (which are not human trafficking arrests) and arrests re: child sex abuse cases (again, NOT human trafficking).

They also have pulled in, as near as I can tell, numbers of arrests for sexual solicitation, which also artificially inflates Trumpís number, while comparing it to Obamaís *actual* HSI trafficking numbers.

So. Now you know where in the hell that claim comes from. It is, as Dear Leader would say, Fake News.

The question of how to deal with and combat such, shall we say, delusional thinking is another matter entirely, and once I donít have an answer to, other than to read critically and for context, at all times.
