Earlier I said that the plan to expand press via Skype was out of the Putin playbook but I should have said the expansion of the press in those briefings is out of the Putin playbook. They hope that more press will result in less attention to detail and definitely less specific questions (not that those types of questions would be answered anyway).
When the Trump mouthpieces start spouting off all his concern for the poor, etc., it would be great if someone would ask where all this concern was before he ran. He's had decades to show his concern and make a significant impact. The criteria for helping the poor is not holding public office. His way of "helping" seems to be by putting up roadblocks and making things worst.
They want to paint this awful picture of America and position him as the savior who comes in and fixes everything.
I am tired of hearing how good he is at making deals. He is not and has never been America's best businessman. His tax returns probably show how little in taxes he actually pays due to whatever loopholes his accountants use. He also probably has more foreign debt than is known. Bankruptcies have been beneficial to him and allowed him to get away with paying his creditors a mere fraction of what he owed.
America is not a corporation and some of his "great' negotiating skills are going to end up costing people who cannot afford it. Part of his plan to "rescue" the American worker is going to ultimately cost the American consumer and when they are one in the same then the benefits will be meager.
