Trump and Trudeau have powder puff news conference

The reach across the ‘not so great’ divide

 With Trudeau refusing to ‘lecture,’ Trump defends Muslim ban – 

by Jim W. Dean, VT Managing Editor, … and Press TV, Tehran

“Much ado about nothing”

[ Note: This was a powder puff press conference, or as Shakespeare would have said, “Much ado about nothing”. That said, on Press TV it has 13,000 views and almost 200 comments, unusual for a news clip where nothing major happened. What was most mentionable was how carefully orchestrated it was to avoid any possible controversy by simply saying nothing really at all. They could have done this in a phone call.

It was nice to see Trump not wander down into the weeds. Both realized the need to not put themselves down range on the shooting gallery. Trudeau led with his notes that he was not here to lecture President Trump on immigration policy, while lauding Canada’s open door.

What he left out was that once there, if the Jewish Lobby wants to legally lynch them, they will have the full cooperation of the Canadian government. The country is absolutely prostrate in front of the lobby. One of their major newspapers is owned by the Mossad and even staffed by some “retired” elements.

Contrary to the usual Trump grandstanding, we will hear about the Canadian deal when it is done, which is how it should be when the public does not need a reality tv show production so Trump can play the star all the time. Maybe he is figuring out that, as president, he no longer has to audition for the partJD ]

US President Donald Trump and Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau have grappled with differences on the treatment of refugees during a joint press conference at the White House.

Trump once again defended his controversial move to close US borders for refugees and citizens of seven Muslim-majority nations. The Canadian premier, however, reiterated his pledge to continue welcoming refugees.

Meanwhile, Trump said Washington would be tweaking outstanding trade relationship with Canada, unlike Mexico where it faced a more severe situation.

Trump also called for reciprocal trade with Ottawa. For his part, Trudeau reaffirmed his support for the North American Free Trade Agreement, NAFTA, saying the US and Canada will always remain each others’ most essential partner.

After taking office last month, Trump voiced his determination to put America first and rip up NAFTA, arguing that the grouping is a catastrophy for US jobs.

    I was afraid Trump would grab Trudeau by the woman parts. Trudeau has no back bone. While Ontario is home to a couple of the world’s largest nuclear stations, electricity bills reach upwards of 500 dollars per month. Meanwhile, Canada has been known to pay America to take our surplus power. This is nonsensical and should stop now. Canada also needs to build its own refineries and refine our own dirty oil, instead of shipping it to the US to be refined and then buying it back at full price. It would also be nice if he would implement his plan for interest free loans for infrastructure projects. So far, It seems to me that our current prime minister, a former substitute teacher, is only good at one thing, taking selfies while on vacation on Canada’s dime.

      Nuke reactors were never meant to create electricity but to let people pay extensivly for the creation of nuke weapon material. Electicity is just waste for them coming from the cooling system to keep nuke reaction under control and lead the steam through turbines.

    Great introduction Jim. I also like “Oh what a goodly outside falsehood hath.” Everyone should boycott everything in the cesspool Canada for the tyrannical treatment of professors like Denis Rancourt, Tony Hall and even the billionaire Matty Maroun who has been fighting to prevent them from stealing his Ambassador Bridge along with the thugs in Michigan. Boycott everything in Canada. Do not travel there or buy anything made there.

      World is a stage and see the actors now
