When life offers you lemonade but you don't really want it, take it anyway because strangers tell you to and that it is really good.

I haven't read enough about it yet, but did he HAVE to make any statement about it or was it just something he decided to do for no reason other than to wind folk up?

What are they going to do? Invade Israel? How many times have they tried and were thoroughly defeated?

It's the new norm. A few days of bluster and life goes on.

He had to do it for 2 reasons:
1. It was part of his initial campaign promises
2. It deflected a lot of attention from him regarding Flynn, FBI and Russia

2 being more important than 1

Thanks. He's terrifying. I wonder what his popularity ratings are like and if he'd win a second term.

None of us are Americans. None of us will ever understand the whats or whys of the US and how things are done there. I've spent enough time in the US to figure this out, so I imagine Trump's reelection chances are quite decent. Especially if the Democrats nominate that old baggage again.

If the best that America could come up with was a choice between Trump and Clinton then I'm afraid I reckon they've got what they deserve

Besides, we've got a potential future PM in a IRA supporting communist so the UK shouldn't think too highly of itself at the moment

Acknowledging the potentially inflammatory nature of the IRA and Commie comments you make (funny as they are), the thought of that man in charge even without those two elements is ****ing terrifying.
