Trump.D Diary : W/E Fri 12th May 2017
Doing what I know best - "Comey, You're Fired!" and creating new catch-phrases
So Philipine President Rodrigo Deterte is "too busy" to make a commitment in response to our visit invitation. Well he's certainly got enough problems at home and that should be his priority but if he wants US co-operation he must know which side his bread is buttered. Hey! That's good and I never heard that before. Add it to my list of literary achievements.
Another one is "priming the pump". Has anyone heard that expression used before? Because I haven't heard it. I mean, I just… I came up with it a couple of days ago and I thought it was good.
Finally Obamacare is dead! Some may disagree but trust me it's a dodo, defunct. extinct. OK so all the wrinkles aren't worked out yet but anyone who asks too many questions can expect the same treatment as Dan Hayman.
Despite all the fake news (another gem of mine!) Comey's firing has nothing o do with the ongoing Russian investigation and everything to do with...... well, something else. People are asking why I took on Flynn against Obama's advice and then sacked him. Simple! I took on Flynn precisely because Obama said don't and then fired him because it was the right thing to do. Not because Obama was right all along actually - the sacking was for something else entirely. And now the Senate are demanding - demanding indeed! - demanding Flynn's papers regarding Russia but I never fired Flynn because of a faulty shredder so no problems there.
In spite of the fake, false and offensive media-inspired witch hunt, we still need to keep Russia onside re Syria and Korea. It woul dbe better if we could cool that for a while but needs must (another Trump gem!?) and we've had constructive talks with Boris Lavrov, the Russian Foreign Minister.
America First is causing some consternation in Bonn over our commitment to the Paris Agreement and they must be desperate as they're trying to get Ivanka on their side. I'm a great supporter of the environment - nobody is a greater supporter and environmentalist than me - but America First means that (for once) we rely on the rest of the world to take responsibility for the cleanup. That's perfectly clear and entirely fair in my opinion.
