Yeah, he said he approves of this. ...I was really disappointed to hear him say that.
Choosing his battles
Trump is not going to veto a 2 trillion dollar bill over $25 million given to the Ken Center. In a $4 trillion dollar federal budget, it isn't even pocket change.
You make a stand on major principles that have significance to your supporters, but you don't fight on this issue. It isn't worth it.
You have to carefully choose which battles to fight and this is clearly not one you fight.
One of the problems with all this 24x7 hysteria and panic is that Trump’s advisors believe he must look “bi-partisan” or he will loose the “independent” and (D) votes he got in 2016....and must get again to win in 2020.
The Art of the Deal.
Our money is their money and by damn sure their money is their money.
We are over the hill on Agenda 2030. Down hill slide now.
I was shocked that he was accepting of this. The Task Force briefing was the perfect chance for him to call out and shame congress and he didn’t do it.
Go listen again. He approved it to make the deal, “you gotta give the Democrats something”. He then put a positive spin on it, in all fairness they got hit too. The Democrats wanted this. To me it was one of his best moments. He gets it, if he thinks the deal is fine and he wants it; it makes very little sense to kill it over this even if you think it’s garbage and completely unnecessary.
Yes. I hope he didn’t say that to curry favor, because we all know how that works.
This whole thing is dinner bell ringing and pigs lining up at the trough. We needed some relief for business and citizens, but The Kennedy Center?
