    The more I think about it, the more I've got the idea that this mental patient has only one goal, i.e destroy everything Obama did. He has an total obsession about that. He now wants to return the "Russian compounds" to the Russians, which Obama impounded, as well get the US out of the Paris climate accord. I don't think he has no other reason than making sure everything Obama did is destroyed. This picture should be very clear; it is not helping the country, nor there is financial gain for him in it. It is time hat he gets removed because he's an dangerous "mental" patient.

    Yes Trump is obsessed with Obama. I think he has a deep inferiority complex when it comes to Obama. Thus he has to try take him down at every opportunity. But all it does is make himself look even more tiny. Tiny mind go with the tiny hands and whatever.

    The other point is related to the Paris accord, that you can't just step out of it; it takes an lot of red tape to excuse yourself. Furthermore if so, then we are no longer an "banana republic" but sunk as low as Syria and Nicaragua; the only countries who did not participate. The Norquist idiot defended Trump this morning on MSNBC. Where do all these idiots come from???

    One common problem and one common solution. Everything Trump done is essentially trickle down except he doesn't care if it trickles down. If it does trickle down that is just coincidental. The common solution is trickle up. Concentrate on improving the low incomes and everybody benefits. "The only reason to oppose the Paris Treaty" ** is to appease the transfer of wealth or the commonly accepted term trickle down theory. There is no plausible reason or excuse to continue to pollute except that it hampers the speed of the transfer of wealth. Civilizations can't exist without spending money. Trump is furthering the cause of not spending money.

    ** Consistent with the topic of the thread.

    Another serious thing popped up on the "news": Bannon is now allowed by Trump to spew his alt-right filth via the White House by publishing things from there. It looks like an real take over of the Hitler loving bunch. Also there are more "adds" on TV promoting Trump on how fantastic he is and that you can "vote" for him to "punch an "yes". It looks like campaign time all over again, but much more dangerous. It gets sicker by the day.

    He, (Trump) thinks, as most republicons do, that weaseling out of the Paris accord and repealing EPA regulations that mining will increase, therefore increasing mining jobs, putting miners back to work, I'm now very concerned about what this means for our environment, water and air. Walker, guvna of Wisconsin has already cut funding for our DNR-department of natural resources, even before Trump took over. Of course, Walker received campaign contributions from a mining company which was indicted in Spain for spoiling waterways there. Wondering how mining companies will compensate Trump?

    Mining improperly ruins the land, air and water all at the same time.

    As I said in another thread, Carlitos could probably best predict Trump's actions. Trump is motivated by funneling and keeping all the money at the top. Carlitos could probably best describe what courses of actions to be ready for in Trump's crusade to save money for the top .001 percenters.

    Ego moves Trump, nothing more and nothing less. He is NOT a Republican. He is a Trumpican. That much of his ego driven mania lines up with Republicans means nothing. Despite his executive orders and assorted arrogance fueled pr gaffes the bottom line to him is his ego. Yes, he wanted to be president. Not because he gave a damn or gives a damn but because he decided to run. He loves all the perks and deference but wants nothing to do with the actual work. As long as his actions align with the Republican agenda the party will in essence leave him alone. Oh, there might be some half-assed investigations by Republicans but in the end not much will happen from their side unless a smoking gun of "high crimes and misdemeanors" surfaces. However if he attempts something that they oppose they will rein him in. He is an ego driven marionette with diminishing intellect and massive arrogance. Quite the combination

    lonely bird -- Yes Trump is all that and more. I also believe he is insecure and unhappy. He continually engages in self promotion and how "wonderful" everything is going, but behind the macho façade is a guy who feels threatened by his own ignorance of how government and the rest of the world works. In a sense, despite his fixation on winning, he is a loser in life...few real friends.

    His previous two marriages ended in failure, and it's hard to see how his third wife is happy in her marriage to him. He's had bankruptcies and numerous lawsuits against him. The US banks won't lend him money anymore. And now his numerous financial and real estate dealings seemingly are being held precariously by the good graces of his unscrupulous overseas lenders. Has he been compromised?

    Insecure and unhappy? Probably behind the facade. I also note in his talk that he uses superlatives constantly but they seem to be basically a few, "great", "huge", "the best" and "very, very". Iirc others have commented that he was more well spoken many years ago. Perhaps dementia or Alzheimer's? As for compromised I think he is but he doesn't think he is. To him it is just business. To Putin it is about control of Trump or at least influence which leads to Trump ignoring what Putin does despite occasional rhetoric to the contrary.
