Let Trump make mistakes: John Howard (Former Australian Prime Minister)
Yahoo! 7 News ^ | July 17, 2018 | The Australian Associated Press

John Howard believes the world has to let Donald Trump make mistakes, after his much-condemned press conference with Vladimir Putin.

The former Australian prime minister said the US president had clearly made a mistake when he said he believed Russian President Vladimir Putin over his own intelligence agencies.

"I thought he was wrong to have said what he did but he's now dealt with that and the important thing is to understand that people shouldn't take sides too much on Mr Trump," Mr Howard told reporters in Adelaide on Wednesday.

"I think one of the problems with the attitude around the world of Donald Trump is that people are either totally for him or totally against him....

The Democrats need to calm down It's hard to retract claims of someone being a traitor, especially a president who might serve another six years.

Klapper, Brennan and Stroke/Struck/Smirk are not to be believed.

In any way.

Fey Wray and Sessions are no better.

Trump has been wiretapped, had a bogus investigation now going on for over a year without any proof. The subpoenas were obtained illegally. False evidence was presented in support of them. Those originated from Hillary Clinton herself, as I understand it.

No, why would Trump think our intelligence agencies were problematic?

Yes, hyperpartisanship is so extreme they cannot back off. They undermine themselves with calls for impeachment, calls for investigations at every word, embrace of socialism and MS-13, etc. Democrats and the media are self-destructing right in front of our eyes.

It’s probably helped him by giving another opportunity for the dems to expose their crazy selves while not costing him more than 10 votes.

Not trust the intelligence community that refused to brief then republican nominee, Donald Trump, and spied on him and his campaign staff?

The Donald Trump who was tipped off by Adm.Mike Rodgers about the conspiracy to end his presidency?

I would not Trust Trump if he trusted these clowns after what they did to him.

The only mistake DJT made was trying to explain a grammatical error. The hell with our so called intelligence agencies. They suck. Rank and file my big hairy arse. There’s something rank all right just take a little sniff. It’s coming from DC.

Too few don’t understand what’s really going on, or too many have sold their souls.

Some of the jerks at Fox need to reel it in too. Trish Regan went all snowflake yesterday, pissing and moaning that Trump stepped over the line. Then we have Newt, Cavuto and Nappy who failed to back The Donald.

Maybe instead of The Donald telling Putin “Nyet” he was telling the swamp and the MSM. NYET. MAGA. Long live Ronald Reagan’s memory. Go DJT.

“Donald Trump make mistakes.” Everyone does. Grow up and get over it. We have a world to fix for the Lord.

from the moment the announcement was made that 12 Russian intel people were being indicted just days before the meeting of Trump & Putin - treasonous? - the narrative/agenda was hijacked.

FakeNewsMSM, including Fox, went along with the narrative and haven’t let it go yet.
nothing is being reported about all the other topics discussed:

3 Jan 2017: Washington Examiner: Schumer warns Trump: Intel officials ‘have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you’
by Daniel Chaitin
The new leader of Democrats in the Senate says Donald Trump is being “really dumb” for picking a fight with intelligence officials, suggesting they have ways to strike back, after the president-elect speculated Tuesday that his “so-called” briefing about Russian cyberattacks had been delayed in order to build a case.

“Let me tell you: You take on the intelligence community — they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you,” said Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer Tuesday evening on MSNBC after host Rachel Maddow informed him that intelligence sources told NBC news that the briefing had not been delayed...

If diplomacy is a mistake, then withdraw all of the diplomats. President Trump didn’t give Russia anything but a slight inflation of their pride. There were only words.

All he said was he respected his agencies but Putin had been strong in his denials. I don’t see that as saying he believed Putin at all.

Don't forget those being blackmailed by the surveillance Deep State. The 24-7 surveillance has a purpose, and this is it.

when he said he believed Russian President Vladimir Putin over his own intelligence agencies. Problem is he clearly did not say that. This is a ploy of the week minded left. They pontificate over what they wish President Trump would have said rather what he actually says, then create "OUTRAGE" over what he didn't say. Here is what I actually have to say "F..OFF". Was that clear or do I need to translate it into Lefty Speak?
