quote:
‘I will be president for all Americans.’ One year ago, Trump promised a presidency that hasn’t happened.

(..)

Trump lavished praise on Hillary Clinton, laid out a centrist agenda focused on infrastructure projects and growing the economy, and told fellow world leaders that he would “seek common ground, not hostility; partnership, not conflict.” Above all, he called for unity as he pledged to represent all Americans.

“Now it’s time for America to bind the wounds of division,” Trump said about 3 a.m. on Nov. 9 in downtown Manhattan. “I pledge to every citizen of our land that I will be president for all Americans, and this is so important to me.”

(..)

The victory speech was a glimpse of a presidency that might have been.

Instead, one year later, Trump finds himself the most unpopular president in modern times amid criticism that he has sought to divide more than unite.

He has resumed his attacks on Clinton, barred most of those who criticized him during the campaign from working in his administration and seen rapid turnover in his White House. When he has felt under attack, he has aggressively punched back, going after members of his own party, media outlets, the intelligence community, the widow of a soldier killed in Niger, the cast of a Broadway show and minorities playing professional football who have knelt during the national anthem to protest racial inequality and police abuse.

He has yet to introduce the sweeping infrastructure plan he promised or implement an economic plan, although he is hopeful Congress will pass some tax cuts before the end of the year. He has repeatedly tried to implement bans on foreigners from several majority-Muslim countries, tried to get rid of the Affordable Care Act many of his supporters depend on for health insurance and commissioned prototypes for a massive wall along parts of the southern border despite a lack of funding.

Uuh, nee. Die healthcare plan werd wijdverbreid bekritiseerd, en zou het electoraat hoogst waarschijnlijk nog sterker hebben gemobiliseerd.

Ja, jij hebt het over de echte plannen waarop gestemd is en de executive orders. Wat hij echter beloofd had was dat:
- iedereen verzekerd zou zijn
- medicaid niet gekort zou worden
- niemand dekking zou verliezen
- en niemand er financieel op achteruit zou gaan.

New data shows how the Trump administration is destroying the State Department


Sixty percent of State’s equivalent of four-star generals are gone.

quote:
Imagine a company where, in the past year, 60 percent of its top management quit and applicants to work there dropped by half. You’d assume that corporation would be on the verge of going bankrupt or in the throes of some catastrophe — Enron after the scandal or Lehman Brothers during the financial crisis.

This is the reality of the US State Department under Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, according to new data from the American Foreign Service Association (AFSA), the professional organization for America’s diplomatic corps. The numbers reveal that American diplomacy, the backbone of US global influence, is in a state of near collapse.

And it’s basically all the Trump administration’s fault.

The new AFSA data focuses on the top-ranking career officials — meaning people who have spent their lives in the State Department. This includes minister counselors (the equivalent of two-star generals), career ministers (the three-star equivalent), and career ambassadors (the four-star equivalent).

The number of people in each of those posts has declined dramatically since President Trump took office in January. The number of minister counselors in the State Department has gone down by 15 percent, career ministers by 42 percent, and career ambassadors by a whopping 60 percent.

“Like the military, the Foreign Service recruits officers at entry level and grows them into seasoned leaders over decades,” explains Barbara Stephenson , the head of AFSA, in a letter Tuesday announcing the new findings. “The talent being shown the door now is not only our top talent, but also talent that cannot be replicated overnight.”

It’s not even clear that this can be fixed over a number of years, because the State Department isn’t hiring at the entry level either. The number of entry-level foreign service officer hires has declined from 366 in 2016 to a scant 100 in 2017, owing to a hiring freeze Tillerson imposed after his Senate confirmation. The number of people who took the Foreign Service exam, the main requirement to become a foreign service officer, dropped by more than half between 2016 and 2017.

Welk healthcareplan? Trump heeft alleen maar beloofd dat iedereen 12$ per maand zou betalen, en toen kwam Ryan, maar dat plan was mean en in de senaat ging het mis, en toen ging Trump de wet breken door de uitvoering te verhinderen en nu zijn er veel meer inschrijvingen.

Maar welk plan dus?

Waar halen jullie het misplaatste idee vandaan dat China op NK zou zitten te wachten?
Dat is het probleem inderdaad, China heeft geen behoefte aan het straatarme N-K. De mensen zijn slecht opgeleid en zijn gehersenspoeld. Buiten het feit dat ze liever niet rechtstreeks naast Z-K willen liggen
The problem is not that people are taxed too little, the problem is that government spends too much.

North Korea on Trump's speech: We're done listening

quote:
North Korean officials were closely watching US President Donald Trump when he addressed the South Korean National Assembly Wednesday, but they say they weren't listening.

Though the American leader's tone was more subdued -- and he proposed what some perceived as a conditional olive branch -- officials in Pyongyang authorized to speak for the government told CNN when it comes to Trump, "we don't care about what that mad dog may utter because we've already heard enough."

quote:
A Republican New Jersey official who posted a meme mocking the Women’s March was defeated in an election last night by a woman who was inspired by his remarks to run for office, The Associated Press reported Wednesday.
Democrat Ashley Bennet defeated Republican John Carman Tuesday for the Atlantic County freeholder seat, according to the AP.
Carman posted a meme on the day of the Women’s March that featured a woman in a kitchen and the message, “Will the women's protest be over in time for them to cook dinner?"

"Just asking?" he wrote alongside the meme.
Carman later apologized, but first-time candidate Bennet decided to challenge him for the seat after being angered by the image.
Carman attended President Trump’s inauguration in January, Philly.com reported, which took place just one day before the march. He has also received criticism for wearing a patch with the Confederate flag.
The win was just one of many for Democrats on Tuesday, which included Democratic wins in gubernatorial races in both New Jersey and Virginia.
Trololololol. :D
