Trump is in meltdown and publicly so. His temperament was questioned repeatedly during the campaign. He's fulfilling those fears and doing so in spades.
My assessment of these melt downs is that he is in permanent defence mode, trying to keep his ego intact. This means not only can he not function, he can be very easily "played". A narcissist all of whose energies go to maintaining the false structures which sustain his self-image is a narcissist on the verge of burn out.
There will come a time when all a reporter has to say is "See that helicopter on the WH lawn? Bet you couldnt fly it. Bet Hillary could."
Trump weighs mobilizing Nat Guard for immigration roundups
Under the plan, state governors would have final say on whether it happens in their respective states.......A draft memo obtained by The Associated Press outlines a Trump administration proposal under consideration to mobilize as many as 100,000 National Guard troops to round up unauthorized immigrants. Millions of those who would be affected in 11 states live nowhere near the Mexico border.........
Update: Trump admin denying report

These 3 Companies Will Benefit from Trump’s Repatriation Tax Reform: Apple Inc. (AAPL), General Electric Company (GE), Microsoft Corporation (MSFT)
One of President Donald Trump’s most notable campaign promises was the potential for repatriation tax reform.
A repatriation tax occurs when money earned overseas is transferred back to domestic accounts. This taxable event must occur before any money can be spent or invested domestically in the United States.
Right now, capital that is repatriated from overseas subsidiaries is subject to the U.S. corporate tax rate of 35%. This has provided a barrier for companies that wish to bring foreign money home, and Trump has proposed a tax ‘holiday’ where this tax is reduced for a temporary period of time.
This article will discuss repatriation tax reform in detail and identify three companies poised to benefit from lower repatriation tax rates: Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL), General Electric Company (NYSE:GE), and Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT).
Update: Trump admin denies reports of planning to use National Guard for deportations.
Anyone else nostalgic for the days when the US had a real President?
A man who did a good job, rather than talked a good job.
