An hour ago he tweeted that he is delaying a meeting with Denmark because the prime minister dismissed the idea that Greenland could be purchased.
I thought he was just trolling them - apparently he was serious. So no reason to go all that way if there's no deal.

Or maybe this is the Art of the Deal. Trump says, "Wanna sell?" and Denmark says, "No" in hopes of getting a better price, and instead of negotiating Trump says, "Okay :sshrug: " If we hear anymore about Denmark in the coming weeks we'll know they're biting.

Who knows. Sometimes Trump does things that make me go "???" and then it turns out that he had an ace up his sleeve.

I’m curious what you consider have been “Aces”?

Well, winning the presidency was the first one.

Then there was when he picked a fight with the Fraud Squad to get Nancy and Co. to come out publicly as crazy Socialists supporting the fascist GND.

And the time he proposed sending all the illegals to sanctuary cities, prompting the progs to out themselves as NIMBY.

And when Saint Obama insisted that manufacturing was dead in America and those jobs were gone for good....only to have Trump bring it back bigly.

Oooh! The time he held a televised meeting with Pelosi and Schumer, and they sat there alternately cowering and grimacing because they prefer to deal behind closed doors where We the People can't see how corrupt and shady they are.

He frequently makes cryptic tweets; the progs mock and sneer; and a couple weeks later a big Democrat donor like Harvey Weinstein gets arrested or a painting of Blue Dress Billy shows up in a pedophile's home.

He just yesterday gave Planned Parenthood an ultimatum: they can either stop pushing abortions or lose their federal funding, which got them to out themselves as a ghoulish abortion mill rather than a legitimate women's health provider.

That's just off the top of my head. I'd have to jog my memory for more.

Oh, and another one:

He got every single Democrat presidential candidate to say that they want to give American taxpayer funded health care to any illegal alien who gets into our country, AND got them to admit that they want open borders to boot.

That was masterful.

"Oh, Canada will never go for that!!"

Guess what?

And soon enough we’ll have a new territory of Greenland.

Such an interesting view to see the world through, these “Aces” you’ve thought of.

You all always whine about how "dumb" Trump is, but he's clearly smarter than any Democrat out there.

I’ve never said he’s dumb, I’ve actually said he’s brilliant.

What other person has been able to keep themselves in popular culture for decades, always able to find a microphone that would take his opinion, always weighing in on the subject of the day?? That’s genius, talent, or whatever you want to call it.....but it’s not the behavior of someone who is dumb.

I beg your pardon. I meant "you all" as general Trump dislikers, not you specifically. ☮

Let US hope he is re-elected, or the USA will be in a world of hurt; so to speak. Voters don’t have to like his personality, but he did a great thing in running for prez, and the headache of it all when he didn’t have to. That is how I know Trump is a patriot. The reason WE see so much turmoil in Trump’s presidency is because he churned up the swamp, and those gators and snakes are not happy campers; to say the least. KAG. :patriot:

Trump’s campaign background song (You Don’t Always Get What You Want) was a great choice. If I had been included in song choice, I would have recommended this one, too. :dance:

It’s funny how none of the ‘aces’ are related to the current situation.


Just to be clear, what happened here is trump ‘floated’ the idea of buying Greenland. Trump gets told in no uncertain terms Greenland isn’t for sale. Trump tries to stomp off saying ‘I won’t come see you since you refuse to talk about selling me greenland’. Denmark says ‘good’.

That’s all aces :killingme

What exactly is TDS about this?

Looks like Trump may have been more interested in a Greenland purchase than originally thought.

Yea, he says the Greenland purchase isn't the only reason he was visiting Denmark then postpones that meeting for that specific reason.

They'll never sell it.

Greenland is Denmarks future tropical island paradise for when global warming makes everything else uninhabitable!

So the first one doesn't seem to have any relevance to the point you made about "Aces". He didn't threaten to run then walk away. He ran.

Then there was when he picked a fight with the Fraud Squad to get Nancy and Co. to come out publicly as crazy Socialists supporting the fascist GND.
Which did what exactly for the country??? What was the purpose of this "Ace" (other than to get morons like you wound up about it)?

And the time he proposed sending all the illegals to sanctuary cities, prompting the progs to out themselves as NIMBY.
Again...what was the ultimate result? Are illegals being sent to sanctuary cities? No. Has anything Trump has done reduced illegal immigration? No. In fact Trump's own actions have made the southern border worse. Has he made any progress on his stupid wall? no.

And when Saint Obama insisted that manufacturing was dead in America and those jobs were gone for good....only to have Trump bring it back bigly.
Well, that's just wrong.

Oooh! The time he held a televised meeting with Pelosi and Schumer, and they sat there alternately cowering and grimacing because they prefer to deal behind closed doors where We the People can't see how corrupt and shady they are.
You mean the time when Trump proclaimed that any shutdown would be his responsibility? You mean THAT meeting? When Trump did shutdown the govt he got his political ass handed to him....when he walked away with LESS than he was offered BEFORE he partially shut down the govt. You think THAT is an ACE??? :killingme:killingme:killingme:killingme:killingme:killingme

He frequently makes cryptic tweets; the progs mock and sneer; and a couple weeks later a big Democrat donor like Harvey Weinstein gets arrested or a painting of Blue Dress Billy shows up in a pedophile's home.
Trump doesn't make "cryptic" tweets...he makes "encrypted" tweets...ask your pal comrade GURPS.

He just yesterday gave Planned Parenthood an ultimatum: they can either stop pushing abortions or lose their federal funding, which got them to out themselves as a ghoulish abortion mill rather than a legitimate women's health provider.
Misinformed as usual...but the only thing your tiny little brain can understand are slogans...and catch phrases.

Wow...the USMCA made only the most basic minimalist changes to NAFTA...it was just an update. No one won any major concessions. Everyone expected that deal would get done.

BTW...it hasn't been approved in the legislatures of any of the 3 govts.
