Are Cohn and Kushner sick of winning yet?

If Trump keeps the US out of war, does enact a Wall Tax, and does begin to build the Wall, then he will be reelected because he kept his promises.

If Trump drags the US into war, doesn't enact the Wall Tax and doesn't begin to build the Wall, then he will be reelected because the stock market is booming and we'll be in a war so voters will be reluctant to "change horses" in the middle of a war.

Trump wins either way.

Automakers and other manufacturers that rely heavily on foreign parts and supplies would have also been hit

Well that's the intent. They're supposed to engage domestic suppliers instead.

They (the dooshes in the MSM) still don’t get it.

This isn’t working any more.

We stopped paying attention years ago.

When was the last time Steve Bannon had any real influence? Do conservatives have a voice inside that Beltway?

> “The New York Times...”

First thing I noticed as well.

But look at how they, the NYT, are slowly boosting Cohn who was never selected by the President but who rather slipped in through the backdoor of the West Wing held open by that imminently sage, widely experienced, all-knowing wise philosopher and purveyor of truth, Monsieur Kushner.

It is telling how in January of this year CEO Blankfein of Goldman was slamming the President-Elect relentlessly and directly through the dinosaur media outlets and then suddenly changed his tune when his protégé Goldman President Monsieur Cohn rode the Kushner mule train into the West Wing. Suddenly, Blankfein is excited to send yet more of his kind into the Trump White House.

Funny how that works.

I know a lot of folks haven’t noticed, but does it every hit them that the NYTs loves printing articles that are for the most part designed to cause infighting on the Right?

The NYT should be thrilled with this, but they report from an angle that is designed to do only one thing.

And folks on our side seem gleeful as can be to play along.

Yes, divide and conquer is their angle, always.

The thing for Trump supporters to remember, that besides any possible infighting or uninvited persons inside the White House, the President is in control.

I may not like Cohn, but I will never let a source like the NYT or any other source for that matter, never allow them to manipulate my support for the President. He’s already done so much to reverse the Obama damage and I am confident he will do a lot more.

Unreal. Trump is unveiling the plan tomorrow. You dont have to rely on NYT to tell you that

Either the tax is in or it is out.

Now that there is some outcry..an official has said there could be a placeholder tax . This is to appease the right who will think it will magically turn In to the border tax.

Reagan should have taught all of you a lesson. Promises by congress to do stuff later cant be trusted.
