Veel lokale politici zijn nog verder doorgeschoten in hun opvattingen dan de landelijke Republikeinen. Natuurlijk zie je niet gelijk het effect van beleid, maar Trump's binnenlandse beleid is redelijk standaard Republikeins beleid en daarmee bedient hij gewoon een groot deel van zijn kiezers. Zijn grootste minpunten zijn z'n rare gedrag, controversiėle persoonlijkheid en niet presidentiėle overkomen. Als Trump gewoon een keer normaal ging doen, en stopte met twitteren, dan was zijn approval zeker 5 punten hoger geweest, denk ik.
quote:President Trump made a host of dubious claims during two recent public appearances, jumping from taxes to trade, from Iraqi oil to Canadian immigration laws, from promoting voter-fraud conspiracy theories to suggesting a California mayor should be charged with obstruction of justice.
We counted 24 false or misleading statements in Trump’s infrastructure speech in Ohio on March 29 and his roundtable on taxes in West Virginia on Thursday. This is not an exhaustive list, however, and some of Trump’s claims include multiple inaccuracies.
The president seems to enjoy going off-script — Trump literally threw out his prepared remarks with a flourish in West Virginia — and perhaps as a result, we have a lot to unpack.
As usual with our roundups of multiple claims, we will not be giving Trump a Pinocchio rating.SPOILER

The other is also a good customer and despite a few spats and some lingering mistrust, it’s getting to be a more lucrative and dependable business partner all the time.
Which side would you choose?
That more or less sums up the dilemma confronting Europe as it watches the escalating conflict between its two biggest trading partners, the United States and China.
The United States is Europe’s biggest market for exports like cars and other goods, not to mention a NATO ally. But China is big, too — and getting ever bigger.
The Trump administration has also threatened the institutions that govern global relationships, calling NATO obsolete and stoking trade tensions. So China no longer automatically seems like the less reliable partner.
European leaders were largely silent after President Trump threatened to impose another $100 billion in tariffs on Chinese goods. But watching from a safe distance as China and the United States argue is not an option for Europe. Its economy is too deeply entwined with both.
“What can they do in terms of staying out of the crossfire?” said Adam Slater, lead economist at Oxford Economics in Britain. “Not a lot.”SPOILER“The fundamental cause of the trouble in the modern world today is that the stupid are cocksure while the intelligent are full of doubt.”— Bertrand Russell
quote:Company has won billions of dollars in business to help government shift computing services from legacy mainframes onto the cloud
Amazon.com Inc. is best known for transforming the U.S. retail industry, a feat that President Donald Trump has recently attacked.
But the company has quietly been cultivating a major customer in his own backyard: the federal government.
In the past several years, the Seattle-based company has won much of the business to help the government shift computing services from legacy mainframes onto the cloud, a business where Amazon is the world leader.
This extraordinary transformation has included the provision of cloud services across Washington’s bureaucracy, from the Department of Homeland Security to the Smithsonian Institution. It also has made the U.S. government a top Amazon customer.
The company doesn’t release specifics, but GBH Insights, a research firm, predicts that Amazon’s government business will grow to $2.8 billion in 2018 and $4.6 billion in 2019, up from less than $300 million in 2015. Other company analysts say those projections are optimistic, but not implausible.
An even bigger prize looms: Amazon is seeking a 10-year contract with the Department of Defense that could be worth $10 billion.SPOILER“The fundamental cause of the trouble in the modern world today is that the stupid are cocksure while the intelligent are full of doubt.”— Bertrand Russell

Lijkt me wel de moeite waardquote:
quote:The Trump administration is pushing for online retailers to pay more in state and local taxes. One retailer that could be affected by a stricter tax policy: the online store of the Trump Organization, which collects sales tax from consumers in only two states.
The TrumpStore.com website, which sells $100 polo shirts, baseball caps, spa teddy bears and other Trump-branded merchandise, collects sales tax on orders shipped to addresses in Florida and Louisiana, according to the company’s website.
The site, which describes itself as the official retail website of the Trump Organization, doesn’t collect sales taxes from New York residents. The TrumpStore.com website invites shoppers to “visit our brand new Trump Tower flagship retail store” in New York City.
The website was registered by the Trump Organization, which is headquartered in Trump Tower. The website contains information about the retail store and the e-commerce site, but it is unclear how ownership of the entities is structured.
“Trumpstore.com has always, and will continue to collect, report, and remit sales taxes in jurisdictions where it has an obligation to do so,” a Trump Store spokeswoman said. The spokeswoman and the chief legal officer for the Trump Organization didn’t respond to requests for additional information.
A White House spokeswoman declined to comment, and referred questions to the Trump Organization.
States require a business with a physical presence in a state to collect sales taxes on online purchases delivered to those states. A spokesman for the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance said it can’t comment on specific businesses for privacy reasons.SPOILER
quote:The president is entitled to express his opinion, even if he might have his facts wrong, absent a stock trade or a connection to the company, according to Ira Matetsky, an attorney with Ganfer and Shore. “At end of day, unless there are significant facts we don’t already know, it would be very tough for either investors or a regulator to bring a case against the president for his Amazon tweets,” Matetsky told MarketWatch.
Ja dat gaat over zijn mening geven maar gezien zijn vele uitlatingen gaat het wel wat verder en heeft het alle schijn van het beļnvloeden van de aandelen.quote:
