President Trump wonders why Germany is a US ally, and Russia is not, because...World War II.

But that was over before Trump was born. How could he be expected to learn facts like that? Like many self-styled geniuses, he knew history and science and things like that would never be useful in his future life. Even in nursery school he scorned the lessons in basic politeness. :(

So he wants closer ties with Russia... but Germany buying Russian gas is bad-bad.

Yes, because Putin is my friend and because he's my friend, you're not allowed to play with him.

While nobody was looking.

The Trump administration rolled back ambitious Obama-era vehicle mileage standards Tuesday, raising the ceiling on damaging fossil fuel emissions for years to come and gutting one of the United States' biggest efforts against climate change.

The Trump administration released a final rule Tuesday on mileage standards through 2026. The change — after two years of President Trump threatening and fighting states and a faction of automakers that opposed the move — waters down a tough Obama mileage standard that would have encouraged automakers to ramp up production of electric vehicles and more fuel-efficient gas and diesel vehicles. 

The administration insists it's a move that balances environmental concerns with economic needs. The administration estimates the change will bring down the average price of a new vehicle by about $1,000. 

 

and what kind of bullshit is this?

"We are delivering on President Trump's promise to correct the current fuel economy and greenhouse gas emissions standards," Andrew Wheeler, the administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), said in a statement. "Our final rule puts in place a sensible one national program that strikes the right regulatory balance that protects our environment, and sets reasonable targets for the auto industry. This rule supports our economy, and the safety of American families."

 

the fucking rest

US President Donald Trump's family company is asking creditors such as Deutsche Bank if it can delay loan payments as the economic impact of the coronavirus pandemic deepens, The New York Times reported Thursday.

The Trump Organization -- the conglomerate of companies created by Trump and now run by his sons -- is, like many others, losing money as the restrictions put in place to lessen the spread of deadly COVID-19 bring the US to a grinding halt.

The New York Times said the Trump Organization contacted Deutsche Bank, seen as the only major lender willing to do business with the company, at the end of March to ask about extending some repayment deadlines.

"These days, everybody is working together," Trump's son Eric, the Organization's executive vice president, said in a statement sent to AFP.

"Tenants are working with landlords -- landlords are working with banks. The whole world is working together as we fight through this pandemic," the statement continued.

The Trump Organization still owes Deutsche Bank several hundred million dollars, according to the Times.

The group, whose main business is real estate development, also contacted Palm Beach County to see if it could suspend rent payments on land occupied by the Trump International Golf Club, a 27-hole course and clubhouse on more than 120 hectares.

Negotiations have so far not led to any change in the financial conditions of the Trump Organization.

Eric Trump and his brother Donald Jr took over the organization after their father's inauguration.

 

 

Anybody remember the rather shady loans that Trump got from Deutsche Bank?

Trump fires intelligence community watchdog who defied him on whistleblower complaint

 

Quote

President Donald Trump has fired the intelligence community’s chief watchdog, Michael Atkinson, who was the first to sound the alarm to Congress last September about an “urgent” complaint he received from an intelligence official involving Trump’s communications with Ukraine’s president.

Atkinson's decision set in motion the congressional probe that culminated in Trump's impeachment and ultimate acquittal in a bruising political and legal drama that consumed Washington for months.

I would love it if they said no unless he gives them up to date tax returns to prove what he was earning and what he is not earning now from that property :D
