  5. YES, it’s obvious, Trump lied/lies about everything! The 99% know this, but we had little choice! That’s why so many stayed home! 2018 is coming soon, RESIST this Tyranny & VOTE this time in your State, City, Town for real change! VOTE for Progressives, NOT Corporate LW DINO’s!

  8. Trump is pro Russia . Hudson misses this one . Hudson is right about China . but lets look at this . so was Gore Vidal . so was Buchanan .so was Napolean ! Business Week has had 2 cover stories on the Chinese undercutting of the West. India is undercutting China …and – but still according to the article on encirclement called ”ChinAfrica ” – Trumpster knows that renegotiations of deals with China must be done . When Huntsman ran for the White house he said that the Chinese dollar was weaker than we thought ./ the truth lies somewhere in between i think .

    as far as Wall St – they did everything i their power to stop Trump. EVERYTHING . from day one . why ? because he is rogue . when all the NY politicans could not fix that ice rink , Trumpster did it under budget and ahead of schedule . Wall ST favored Hillary Clinton – not Trump or Sanders.

    now lets look at Trump and wall st. never forget Trumpster has an enemies list . Nixon . its pay back time for all those years many of them tried to screw him over . on the other hand he will reward those who did not. the latter point is maybe what Hudson is getting at ./
