President Trump won with a clear mandate to fix the problems caused by the corrupt establishment.
Trump still has much to do, but fixing the underlying imbalance that has allowed a corrupt few to hoard the wealth in this great country, is no easy task.
So embedded is corruption with these people that they think nothing of rigging the college entrance process for the benefit of their kids while making it harder for your kids.
Ann Coulter said it best when she wrote: “Give or take a few slots, approximately half of the places in Harvard’s entering class are already taken by kids whose parents made big donations to the college — and/or campaign donations to politicians who can grease the skids, like Jared. The other half is made up of approved minorities — including the children of immigrants who arrived last Friday, but have to be admitted “to make up for the legacy of slavery.”
Sorry! No room for the son of a middle manager in Newton, Iowa, who got double 800s on his SATs.”
The game is rigged and Trump promised to change it and no one rigs the game better than the Chinese (with help from our greedy corporations who sold us out for a few extra dollars).
China has tried to rig everything in their favor, playing the part of the innocent rube when caught. No more says Trump and if he can actually keep China in check (it won’t be easy with all the money people will lose), can keep them from stealing our IP and bring jobs back, Trump will go down as one of the all-time greats. To that aim, Trump is playing offense while Obama and the rest played defense or just ignored the threat alltogether.
From The Hill:
The Trump White House has given its backing to Taiwan’s request to buy more than 60 F-16 fighter jets, in a move that could upset China, according to a Bloomberg report on Thursday.
Advisers to President Trump encouraged Taiwan to formally request the jets, according to Bloomberg, which cited sources familiar with the matter.
The next step would be converting the request to a formal proposal by the Pentagon and State Department, after which Congress would have 30 days to decide whether to approve or block the sale.
The Obama administration declined a similar request from Taiwan to avoid worsening tensions with the Chinese government, which does not recognize Taiwan as an independent state.
Taiwan did not include a specific number of jets in announcing its request, but the Bloomberg report puts the number approved by the Trump administration at more than 60.
The White House did not immediately reply to a request for comment from The Hill. Bloomberg reported the White House declined to comment.
While Trump has publicly said he remains committed to the United States’s longtime “One China” policy, he broke with precedent by having a phone conversation as president-elect with Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-Wen in December 2016.
This week, the Chinese government called on the U.S. to bar Tsai from entering Hawaii as part of a tour of the Pacific with stops in Nauru, the Marshall Islands and Palau.
