Not the date of this USA Today article. The #FakeNews have a short memory; Trump's story hasn't changed in over a year.


Trump's statement at the July 13, 2017 press conference:

Quote:
[Trump, Jr.] took a meeting with a Russian lawyer, not a government lawyer, but a Russian lawyer. It was a short meeting. It was a meeting that went very, very quickly, very fast. Two of the people in the room, they — I guess one of them left almost immediately and the other one was not really focused on the meeting.

I do think this: I think from a practical standpoint, most people would have taken that meeting. It’s called opposition research, or even research into your opponent. I’ve had many people — I have only been in politics for two years, but I’ve had many people call up — “Oh, gee, we have information on this factor or this person, or, frankly, Hillary.” That’s very standard in politics. Politics is not the nicest business in the world, but it’s very standard where they have information and you take the information. In the case of Don, he listened. I guess they talked about — as I see it, they talked about adoption and some things. Adoption wasn’t even a part of the campaign. But nothing happened from the meeting. Zero happened from the meeting. And, honestly, I think the press made a very big deal over something that, really, a lot of people would do.


That's tiptoeing around but not admitting what the purpose of the meeting was. As for what did or did not come out of the meeting, we have only Trump and Trump Jr.s word for it that "Zero happened from that meeting."

I'm sure it's just a coincidence that the leaking of stolen e-mails by Russian Intelligence started shortly after the meeting that was or wasn't about adoption. --Bob

Keeping this in its proper thread to keep Flock happy:

Another h-u-u-u-u-u-g-e win for Trump in the trade war with China.

Quote:
A South Carolina plant that assembles televisions using Chinese parts plans to shut down and lay off nearly all its employees because of new tariffs imposed by the Trump Administration, the company announced this week. Element Electronics — which describes itself as the only assembler of televisions in the U.S. — plans to lay off 126 of its 134 permanent full-time employees and close the Winnsboro, S.C. plant on Oct. 5. Notably, there are still at least two smaller companies that continue to assemble speciality televisions in the U.S.

“The layoff and closure is a result of the new tariffs that were recently and unexpectedly imposed on many goods imported from China, including the key television components used in our assembly operations in Winnsboro,” Carl Kennedy, Element’s vice president of human resources, said


Winnsboro is in the 5th Congressional District in South Carolina, where the current Congressman Ralph Norman won by four percent in a special election last year. His predecessor, Mick Mulvaney was re-elected in 2016 with 59% of the vote. It's also the district that Frank Underwood represented in the first season of House of Cards.
