Trump Refuses to Yield

by baldilocks

What­ever one thinks of Pres­i­dent Trump, he doesn’t seem dis­mayed or cha­grined about the flip­ping of the House to the Democ­rats or about the dubi­ous and ongo­ing efforts by Demo­c­rat Party in Florida, Geor­gia and Ari­zona to change the out­comes of polit­i­cal races lost by Demo­c­rat can­di­dates. He keeps on doing what he said he would do. And telling you about it with­out apology.

Exam­ples follow.

Bor­der Offi­cials Prepar­ing to Evict Immi­grant Encamp­ments Near Texas Ports of Entry, ACLU Says

… Trump admin­is­tra­tion invoked national secu­rity pow­ers to change exist­ing rules to deny asy­lum to any­one enter­ing this coun­try ille­gally, U.S. immi­grant rights advo­cates were told that U.S. and Mex­i­can offi­cials had agreed to a plan to evict migrants encamped on inter­na­tional bridges await­ing to legally apply for asylum.

U.S. and Mex­i­can author­i­ties have reached an agree­ment to remove hun­dreds of asy­lum seek­ers, includ­ing chil­dren, from inter­na­tional bridges link­ing El Paso and Ciu­dad Juarez, rep­re­sen­ta­tives from the Amer­i­can Civil Lib­er­ties Union told Texas Monthly Thurs­day night. Mex­i­can offi­cials are still work­ing to iden­tify shel­ter space for the migrants as they wait for per­mis­sion to make their asy­lum claim in the United States.

That’s pretty bold. I won­der how the pres­i­dent got the Mex­i­can gov­ern­ment to coop­er­ate in this matter.

Trump Pushes Back at Michelle Obama. Warn­ing: CNN link.

Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump pushed back at for­mer first lady Michelle Obama and for­mer Pres­i­dent Barack Obama over a forth­com­ing mem­oir in which the for­mer first lady said she would “never for­give” Trump for his role [sic] in the “birther” movement.

“She got paid a lot of money to write a book and they always expect a lit­tle con­tro­versy,” Trump said.
“I’ll give you a lit­tle con­tro­versy back, I’ll never for­give (Pres­i­dent Barack Obama) for what he did to our US mil­i­tary. It was depleted, and I had to fix it,” Trump said. “What he did to our mil­i­tary made this coun­try very unsafe for you and you and you.”
Empha­sis mine. That’s very bold.

One thing that many foes and even sup­port­ers of Don­ald Trump hate is his refusal to play the accepted role of “states­man.” (As I typed that last word, the notion of “the state’s man” popped into my head, that is, a man who is owned by the state.)

Admit­tedly, hav­ing a plain-​spoken, abra­sive pres­i­dent was jar­ring to me at first. Then I began to think back on the last two pres­i­dents, both pathetic blow­ers of back­side smoke from the two “oppos­ing” par­ties lulling many of us to sleep with their sweet dul­cet tones.

(And I con­tend that both for­mer Pres­i­dents Obama and George W. Bush harmed the mil­i­tary. BHO was merely less dis­hon­est about it. No, I’m not in the “Bush lied” camp, but in the “Bush was too chicken-sh*t to defend his poli­cies” camp. Bush was afraid of his polit­i­cal oppo­nents. That’s a crip­pling trait for a POTUS.)

In con­trast to GWB’s reac­tion to los­ing the House in 2006. the 2018 loss of the House seems to have ener­gized this pres­i­dent, who, if one takes a look back at a man who has been in the pub­lic eye for 40 years, seems always to thrive on adversity.

He seems intent on the pro­tec­tion of the Amer­i­can peo­ple, even of those who hate him and who would do any­thing to stop him.

The lat­ter will never for­give him for that, espe­cially if he succeeds.

Whatever one thinks of President Trump, he doesn’t seem dismayed or chagrined about the flipping of the House to the Democrats or about the dubious and ongoing efforts by Democrat Party in Florida, Georgia and Arizona to change the outcomes of political races lost by Democrat candidates. He keeps on doing what he said he would do. And telling you about it without apology.

Examples follow.

Border Officials Preparing to Evict Immigrant Encampments Near Texas Ports of Entry, ACLU Says

… Trump administration invoked national security powers to change existing rules to deny asylum to anyone entering this country illegally, U.S. immigrant rights advocates were told that U.S. and Mexican officials had agreed to a plan to evict migrants encamped on international bridges awaiting to legally apply for asylum.

U.S. and Mexican authorities have reached an agreement to remove hundreds of asylum seekers, including children, from international bridges linking El Paso and Ciudad Juarez, representatives from the American Civil Liberties Union told Texas Monthly Thursday night. Mexican officials are still working to identify shelter space for the migrants as they wait for permission to make their asylum claim in the United States.

That’s pretty bold. I wonder how the president got the Mexican government to cooperate in this matter.

Trump Pushes Back at Michelle Obama. Warning: CNN link.

President Donald Trump pushed back at former first lady Michelle Obama and former President Barack Obama over a forthcoming memoir in which the former first lady said she would “never forgive” Trump for his role [sic] in the “birther” movement.

“She got paid a lot of money to write a book and they always expect a little controversy,” Trump said.
“I’ll give you a little controversy back, I’ll never forgive (President Barack Obama) for what he did to our US military. It was depleted, and I had to fix it,” Trump said. “What he did to our military made this country very unsafe for you and you and you.”
Emphasis mine. That’s very bold.

One thing that many foes and even supporters of Donald Trump hate is his refusal to play the accepted role of “statesman.” (As I typed that last word, the notion of “the state’s man” popped into my head, that is, a man who is owned by the state.)

Admittedly, having a plain-spoken, abrasive president was jarring to me at first. Then I began to think back on the last two presidents, both pathetic blowers of backside smoke from the two “opposing” parties lulling many of us to sleep with their sweet dulcet tones.

(And I contend that both former Presidents Obama and George W. Bush harmed the military. BHO was merely less dishonest about it. No, I’m not in the “Bush lied” camp, but in the “Bush was too chicken-sh*t to defend his policies” camp. Bush was afraid of his political opponents. That’s a crippling trait for a POTUS.)

In contrast to GWB’s reaction to losing the House in 2006. the 2018 loss of the House seems to have energized this president, who, if one takes a look back at a man who has been in the public eye for 40 years, seems always to thrive on adversity.

He seems intent on the protection of the American people, even of those who hate him and who would do anything to stop him.

The latter will never forgive him for that, especially if he succeeds.
