Puan...
Those are the Obama liberal leftists holdovers and leakers seen leaving the West Wing of the White House...
Seems that there is a new General in charge of the White House Staff.

Aw, c'mon, TJ. Even the most ardent Trump supporter can't believe that level of distortion. Are you trying to say the following are "leftist holdovers and leakers"?

Anthony Scaramucci - White House Communications Director
Reince Priebus - White House Chief of Staff
Sean Spicer - White House Press Secretary
Michael Dubke - White House Communications Director
Walter Shaub, Jr. - Director of the Office of Government Ethics
James Comey - FBI Director
Michael Flynn - National Security Advisor
Sally Yates - Acting Attorney General (An Obama appointee)
Preet Bharara - US Attorney for Southern District of Manhatten
Katie Walsh - Deputy Chief of Staff
And these are just the tip of the iceberg.

Say what you might about Trump's presidential abilities, one sure can't say much about a management style that so messes up basic personnel matters.

If Russia really did intervene in the election, I have a feeling the phrase, "Be careful what you wish for . . ." now has a much greater significance to Mr. Putin.

Fabulous example of Trump's magnificent and much revered business expertise. More than half these guys were actually his own appointments. Has any President lost so many of his senior appointees at such an early stage in his administration? I doubt it. So another first! Lousy human resource skills and lousy man management! Is there another lifeboat at the ready?

Trump is a Faker and always has been. Few people know that he inherited almost $200 million and he basically squandered it, because a really smart businessman would have turned that $200 million into a lot more in 50 years then Trump has. Whatever Trump has now is because of bankruptcies and failure to pay people what he owed.

Most of what he did in NYC was with the Mafia and he squandered that money in Atlantic City and when he came out of that mess there was not a US Bank that would lend him a penny and they still won't. He re-invented himself with Russian money and buying Golf Courses. Most of his Golf courses are losing money and he has to beg and lie to get his property taxes reduced so he can stay afloat.

One of the reasons he won't release his taxes is the embarrassment of how little he really is worth. Don't get me wrong, he is not poor but rather is worth a small % of what he claims. Of course the Presidency is making him richer. He sticks the taxpayers with tens of millions for his constant travels to Florida,Golf Courses and his stupid rallies. No President has worked less in the history of the country.

He spends his time watching TV and tweeting. He is ignorant of all that is going on in the world . He looks like a joke when he knows nothing about Health Care debate and is only interested in something to sign.

He and his minions lie constantly about the economy. The only real thing he can point to is the increase in the stock market which effects at most 50% of the people and of course almost none of the suckers who voted for him.

He is a TV pitch man with nothing behind the curtain.

You mean you wouldn't buy a Popeil's Pocket Fisherman or a Veg-o-Matic from Trump pitching it on TV?

I don't know why you say such a thing. Trump is a great president. Very very great. After all, he's told us so - many times . . .

Let's not forget that to prevent one bankruptcy he went cap in hand to - the Chinese! After the collapse of the real estate market in the early 1990s, Trump was deeply in debt. He could no longer afford to make payments on a 77-acre site near Lincoln Center known as Riverside South, let alone develop it. A consortium of Hong Kong and Chinese investors agreed to purchase the land, assume Trump's debts and pay him management fees and 30% of the profits. [According to Bloomberg, the cost to the buyers was US$332 million]. One of the developers, the highly respected Hong Kong developer and philanthropist Vincent Lo, later created the up-scale, trendy, hip restaurant, cafe, bar and boutique area in Shanghai named Xintiandi, a hugely successful brand that is now developing in other parts of China. These guys knew their business. Unlike Trump, Lo had started his business with just a loan from his father of only US$16,700.

Trump really dislikes travel but he was eventually forced to fly to Hong Kong to meet his deliverers from bankruptcy. The deal was signed, the real estate market recovered and by 2005 the Hong Kong partners sold it for %1.75 billion, probably the largest property deal in New York's history till then. Trump claims he was not told of the deal and he would have got a better one. Vincent Lo said he had been told. He also pointed out that for a savvy developer, it would be incredulous that Trump would not have heard of the prospect of a sale.

Instead of accepting his share of the profits, Trump sued the consortium for $1 billion. The consortium wanted to invest the proceeds in buildings in San Francisco and New York. Trump took out an injunction to prevent it. The case took four years. The court finally ruled against him. He lost. The Chinese cut all ties with him. But today Trump calls this defeat a victory.

To make matters worse for Trump.. Vincent Lo was bankrolling a TV programme in China "Wise Man Takes All", a series designed to encourage entrepreneurship. Trump announced he would take his "Apprentice" show to China to compete and win. The Chinese "Apprentice" never happened.

And what does Trump now think of that deal? He acknowledges his former partners had probably got the best deal. And his view now of his partners?

“If you speak to Vincent and Henry, tell them I think they are fantastic people,” he said. “You let them know that Donald Trump has great respect for them, O.K.?”

In his penthouse office in Hong Kong, when told of Trump's comment Vincent Lo laughed. He had not forgotten being sued by Trump.

“Well, that’s him,” Mr. Lo said. “To file a lawsuit is nothing. It’s just like having lunch.”

Litigation in Hong Kong and China is the last resort. For Trump it's always the first. Perhaps Trump's change of heart is due to Vincent Lo now being a member of the National Committee of the China People's Political Consultative Conference. Lo pulls strings in Beijing!

The March against Gays is on. Trump's justice department says Gays are not covered under Civil Rights Laws. Any Gay person supporting this Moron Trump should be ashamed of themselves . Gay Marriage will be the next thing eliminated.
