    Who am I to criticize an immoral president if he’s fulfilling biblical prophecy?

    It sounds like China is being helpful to Don's bank account:

    China Contributing $500 Million to Trump-Linked Project in Indonesia

    The Chinese government is extending a $500 million loan to a state-owned construction company to build an Indonesian theme park that will feature a Trump-branded golf course and hotels.

    A subsidiary of Chinese state-owned construction firm Metallurgical Corporation of China (MCC) signed a deal last week with the Indonesian firm MNC Land to build an “integrated lifestyle resort,” as part of Beijing’s global influence-expanding “Belt and Road” infrastructure initiative.

    The project will include a number of Trump-branded hotels, a golf course, and a residence. While the $500 million loan will not be directly allocated to any of the Trump-branded features, Beijing’s contribution of half the project’s total operating budget ensures the success of the broader theme-park venture.

    The Trump properties are considered flagship elements of the theme park, according to MNC marketing materials, and internal documents obtained by Agency France-Presse show Trump’s sons have been directly involved in its planning.

    Though negotiations began prior to Trump’s election and his pledge to cease engaging in new business dealings with foreign governments, the project raises questions about the extent to which the Trump organization is dependent on Beijing amid contentious trade negotiations with the U.S.

    “Even if this deal is completely and entirely above board, it simply furthers the perception of impropriety” surrounding Trump’s business dealings, Christopher Balding, an economics professor at Shenzhen’s HSBC Business School, told AFP. “Especially with the potential trade war, this is not a good look….Critics will be entirely right to demand answers.”

    Trump refused to divest his Trump Organization holdings upon taking office, much to the consternation of government-ethics experts, opting instead to place his holdings in a blind trust and hand over control of the business to his sons.


    Vice Premier Liu He, China’s top economic official, is traveling to Washington this week to continue negotiations over the large trade deficit between the U.S. and China. Though negotiations have proved fruitless thus far, the administration has remained confident that Beijing will make significant concessions to avert the harsh tariffs the Trump administration has threatened to implement.

    If you read past the headlines it sounds like it is a loan... maybe it was the word "loan" that clued me in.

    So the question is does Drumpf Corp have to pay it back?

    Doesn't matter. If it's a direct benefit to his business that comes to him because he is president, it's swampy, to use Trumpist terminology.

    Our government already owes China billions. What's a few hundred million more for the president?

    I really REALLY want someone to describe it to Trump this way. Before the trade negotiations their planning to have. And it would be cool if someone would record his response. TIA.

    In his quest to defend his hero, Ted might also struggle to understand that not all loans are created equal.

    DACA kids are cool for the time being, thanks to our judicial system, which has allowed them to renew their DACAs for now. New applications aren't being accepted, but a couple weeks ago another court ruled that DHS has 90 days to present a better argument for why they aren't taking new applications, or new applications will resume. That's good, b/c I have a few clients w 15 year olds who were never able to apply and need to.

    I love how Trump passes the buck as though he didn't reject the bipartisan proposal b/c it ignored that RAISE Act bullshit he wanted slipped in there. I imagine Democrats will probably put something on the floor after November when they can pass it unfettered and with no concessions. DACA itself has about a 90% approval rate among Americans, so it's going to pass regardless. That's why Trump wanted all his horrible shit lumped in with it. So until November I expect Republicans to frantically propose various iterations of DACA + RAISE Act legislation combos in hopes that something sticks.

    I don't think most of the country really believes we should slam the doors shut on all immigration, including legal, the way old xenophobes like Trump do. I read today that even the Koch brothers are funding campaigns to support candidates who are friendly to immigration. Drastically reducing all forms of immigration would be really bad for the economy.

    In fairness, it is fantastic for old racist Trump supporters' erections, apparently.

    What a dipshit

    Bill Gates: Trump Didn’t Know the Difference Between HIV and HPV


    Bill Gates told an audience recently that President Donald Trump did not seem to know the difference between HIV and HPV. Gates made the remarks shortly after meeting with the president. “He wanted to know if there was a difference between HIV and HPV. So I was able to explain that those are rarely confused with each other,” Gates said in a video clip obtained by MSNBC’s All In. HIV is the human immunodeficiency virus that affects the immune system and can lead to AIDS, while HPV is the human papillomavirus, a common sexually transmitted infection that is mostly harmless.

    HPV is “mostly harmless” but a quick google search reveals that it kills 295,000 people worldwide each year.

    Methinks the Daily Beast writers are also dipshits.

    Is Donald Trump an anti-vaxxer? Bill Gates said President asked him if 'vaccines weren't a bad thing'

    In newly released footage from a Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation event, Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates said President Donald Trump told him he was considering a commission to look into the “bad effects” of vaccines. "Don't do that," Gates said he told the president, and Trump has never publicly proposed such a commission. Yet the incident recalls Trump's longtime skeptical comments about vaccines.

    Gates said that in two separate meetings since he was elected, Trump asked the billionaire philanthropist if “vaccines weren’t a bad thing.”

    “He was considering a commission to look into the bad effects of vaccines and somebody, I think his name was Robert Kennedy Jr., was advising him that vaccines were causing bad things,” Gates recalled. “And I said ‘No, that's a dead end, that would be a bad thing, don’t do that.”

    Even better that he's asking Bill Gates as though he's the Oracle. It's almost as though Trump only respects people with more money than him.

    The anti-vaccine movement is a coalition of idiots on the right and left of the political spectrum. The dumbest, most arrogant, weird schizotypal thinkers on both sides of the spectrum are anti-vax.

    So yeah of course Trump is anti-vaccine.
