Could it be that's what he's aiming for?



I don't know what Trump thinks another crash would fix, but it wouldn't be America's problems.

I think in his mind causing a crash will be the time when Trump swoops in and saves the US single handedly.
He thinks the US can survive without the rest of the world and for some reason many Americans think that as well and a part of me would like to see the US go full isolationist then continue to blame the rest of the world when it fails utterly, the economy crumbles and because they will keep giving the rich more and more hoping for the trickle down effect to work 99.9% of the country will have nothing.
No matter how much this fails you'll see some willing to stick with it even as it crushes them as they just can't stand admitting that there political policy could be wrong.

It's why no matter how much Trump strawberry floats things up his supporters will love him.

Relations souring even further with Canada:

Donald’s Trump’s chief economic adviser said the US pulled out of a G7 communique because the Canadian prime minister, Justin Trudeau, “stabbed us in the back” and accused the leader of one America’s most important allies of playing a “sophomoric political stunt for domestic consumption”.

In an extraordinary interview with CNN’s State of the Union on Sunday, Larry Kudlow, who was present for negotiations at the G7 summit in Quebec over the weekend, said Trudeau had instigated “a betrayal” and was “essentially double-crossing President Trump”.

Trudeau used a media conference on Saturday to reject a US demand for a sunset clause in the North American trade agreement, Nafta, that Trump has at different times pressed to abolish or renegotiate. The prime minister also said Canada would “move forward with retaliatory measures” in response to the Trump administration’s move to impose tariffs on aluminium and steel imports from the European Union, Mexico and Canada.

The move enraged Trump, who branded his Canadian counterpart “dishonest and weak” in a furious tweet, announcing the US would pull out of an agreed communique.

The G7 communique said the leaders of seven of the most powerful countries in the world agreed on the need for “free, fair, and mutually beneficial trade” and the importance of fighting protectionism.

Kudlow added that Trump had made the decision to pull out of the agreement in an attempt to save face ahead of his historic summit with North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un, in Singapore.

“Potus [the president of the United States] is not going to let a Canadian prime minister push him around – push him, Potus around, on the eve of this,” Kudlow said. “He is not going to permit any show of weakness on the trip to negotiate with North Korea. Nor should he.”

The onslaught continued as Trump’s trade adviser Peter Navarro appeared on Fox News Sunday and said Trudeau deserved “a special place in hell”.

“There’s a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy with President Donald J Trump and then tries to stab him in the back on the way out the door and that’s what Bad Faith Justin Trudeau did with that stunt press conference,” Navarro said, adding that his comments had come “right from Air Force One”.

“There’s a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy with President”

Kudlow, a staunch conservative who regularly pounded his fists on the desk throughout his interview on CNN, argued that Trudeau’s comments were “a great disservice to the whole G7”.

So basically America attacked Canada and then Canada retaliated and somehow it's all Canada's fault for acting in bad faith?

I'm getting to the point where the US is just trolling the whole world. They've said that the D-day invasion shows where a great relationship Germany and the US have.

I would hope we don't affected to much but I imagine some large internet companies will pass on the costs to European consumers if American ISP's make them pay more for access.

Finally Trudeau does something good, hopefully this means less of the US's horrid hormone filled milk and cheese get up here. :dread:

I'm not even sure where it's used to be honest, almost all dairy products I see here are made with Canadian milk, but it must go somewhere.

lol Trump just said he's going to stop military exercises in south korea.
You could have had president bernie sanders and you wouldn't have gotten foreign policy that left wing.

EDIT: lol



Give him a couple more hours with Kim and he'd start believing in Juche

If cancelling military exercises helps with peace then that's a good thing.

Not if it alienates a key ally and causes an emboldened North Korea to strike out in the future.

I bet money he'll take it back the moment he speaks to his advisors but it is good. The reason the SK/NK talks collapsed was because Moon couldn't/wouldn't promise to stop the US exercises.
