Worldwide effort set to keep Trump happy on 1st trip abroad [fake news]
San Francisco Chronicle ^ | May 19, 2017 | by Julie Pace, Ap White House Correspondent

When President Donald Trump sits down for dinner in Saudi Arabia, caterers have ensured that his favorite meal - steak with a side of ketchup - will be offered alongside the traditional local cuisine.

At NATO and the Group of 7 summits, foreign delegations have gotten word that the new U.S. president prefers short presentations and lots of visual aids. And at all of Trump's five stops on his first overseas trip, his team has spent weeks trying to build daily downtime into his otherwise jam-packed schedule.

It's all part of a worldwide effort to accommodate America's homebody president on a voyage with increasingly raised stakes given the ballooning controversy involving his campaign's possible ties to Russia. For a former international businessman, Trump simply doesn't have an affinity for much international.

Even before Trump's trip morphed from a quick jaunt to Europe into a nine-day behemoth, White House aides were on edge about how the president would take to grueling pressures of foreign travel: the time zone changes, the unfamiliar hotels, the local delicacies. Two officials said they feared that a difficult trip might even lead the president to hand off future traveling duties to Vice President Mike Pence.

The stakes will be far higher as President Trump makes his debut on the international stage. He's the first president since Jimmy Carter to not travel abroad during his first 100 days in office. And he'll depart under a cloud of controversy, much of it of his own making, including the White House's botched handling of FBI Director James Comey's firing.

Julie Pace was one of the attendees to John Podesta’s Hillary strategy dinner. She is a democratic whore. I can not believe Fox lets her comment on political issues.

LSM styleguide for treatment of Republican presidents:

Nixon was tricky Dick

Ford was a klutz

Reagan was an amiable dunce

Bush Sr was a whimp

Bush jr was a dry alcoholic

And now Trump has the attention span of a five year old.


The Klintoons were the wet dream of every American man and woman.

Obummer was the second messiah

No bias detected there. Funny though, they were silent on carter the peanut farmer.

Further BS attempt to slam President Trump. Liar “news”: by liars. I pray that President Trump crushes these pathetic anti-Free-America traitors to dust. Their sedition will cost them dearly.

I agree. I’ve noticed her byline several times since she started appearing on Fox and she is relentlessly partisan. It’s not bias when it’s intentional

Also she has an unfortunate face just MADE for not being in front of the camera

The Obama Presidency was a Liberal Wet Dream come true.

Nowadays they are having Wet Dreams while they are wide awake and typing Articles like this.

Must admit I didn’t read the article, but if the whole world is scrambling to make President Donald Trump happy, it sounds like good news to me! Way better than making the US Pres exit an airplane via the mechanics’ exit.
