    I think he is playing. In every sense of the word. I half expected occasional grins to camera... ":D :thumbs:"

    I detect a shift in the way Trump's being covered in some TV shows.



    Good.

    If he gets even a sniff of an idea that people are pleased he's not coming, He Will Come.

    Trump's "shithole" remarks sound a little like Benjamin Franklin complaining about German immigrants in 1751, maybe somebody wil remind him that his grandfather was a "Palatine Boor..."

    The wealthy locals wanted them out because the square was a fortress and a no go area. By building From scratch, they could pick the site with a view to having whatever they wanted there. Not sure if the new gaff has a helipad but the heliport is only just down the road. Also the new place has seriously upgraded Security, built in.

    They could have had a helipad(they don't) but they wouldn't be allowed to use it. Which is why they moved as close to Battersea as they did.

    It's almost impressive, in a Bizarro World kind of way - Trump can put his Jewish son-in-law in charge of many areas of policy, openly flirt with giving permanent residency to 800,000 undocumented immigrants, and he can still have Nazis eating out of the palm of his hand.

    But I don't think even his yes-men will call it an achievement: "Congratulations, Mr. President, the KKK and the Nazis are still very loyal! Also, the Expletive Society of America is giving you an award for your services to the word 'shithole.'"

    Trump told not everyone on welfare is black: “Really? Then what are they?” he responded: Report

    Another coy headline about Trump's longstanding racism.

    Trump comments on race, ethnicity raised eyebrows before ‘shithole’ furor

    For those who don't mind Twitter, this thread is worth a read, especially for those still not convinced how pervasive white supremacy remains in the US.

    tbf I do wonder how many of the outraged over the "shithole" comments, how many realistically would consider going on holiday there.

    I suppose. It perhaps says something that no-one thought to ask for help from the world-class (as in, can get a satellite moved and re-tasked to make a call if need be) White House Communications Agency that lives in the White House basement.

    I think it's more to do about respecting peoples than whether or not it's a suitable holiday destination?

    Trump's utterances just reinforce the negativities...

    The Trump Whitehouse does little things badly all the bloody time. They released a statement about El Trumpo's medical the other day and got the name of the doctor wrong. They released a statement about the visit of the Norwegian leader and spelled Norway wrong!

    Their public statements and websites often have spelling or grammar mistakes and are usually really badly written.

    I agree that it's both trivial and revealing. They don't give a shit.

    You or I could make a tasteless comment about a country, and it would just be our opinion. Hell, Donald Trump could do it, and it would just be his opinion. But when the President of the United States does it, it's more than a personal opinion, and that is a distinction he either fails to grasp, or isn't interested in making.

    A lot of African countries are major luxury holiday destinations. Trump's own children can barely stop stopping off in those shitholes to slaughter the wildlife with high-velocity rifles.

    I saw a good thread on Twitter (sorry for the source, but it was genuinely well-written and from a historian), and I think you could safely say that if Haiti has problems the answer "because America" isn't too far from the whole truth of the matter. (You might want to add "because France" as well!)

    Going on holiday where? The US? I wouldn't recommend it at the moment, that's for sure.
