Glad they're heading back home  and safe but I STILL have some serious trust issues with the White House.

Do I respect the office? Sure do and always will.

But there has been TOO MUCH......"stuff"....said.......anyone whose followed my posts in other threads know them all too well.

And I won't budge on those posts.

"Trust" is built over time....over deeds...over actions....over words. It takes time to establish.

Right now it's just not there. I'm holding out HOPE that it WILL be one day.

I'm unchanging in wanting President Trump to SUCCEED and GROW in the White House. I took that position because none other than President Obama WISHED the same for Mr. Trump.

Is this move political? While I'd hope that it's not I cannot trust that it isn't. If it is NOT political then build on this.

Stop the tweets.

Show some understanding and couth for ALL AMERICANS - not just your "base"...

I'm praying for his success but I have my doubts and have some serious trust issues.

Trump helped the UCLA guy’s because they faced 10 years  in prison. That is no joke.
May I ask where you read that the players faced ten years in jail?

3 to 10 is not 10. Also, as we've already seen, even in MA you can get 5 years for felony larceny.

exactly. If they get 10 or not is at a judges discretion. Trump saved them from that

isnt felony larceny basically grand theft? It’s not surprising you can get 5 years for stealing something worth a lot of money

I'm a little curious about something. Are the people that were like "Oh gee. It's just way too mean to put these kids in jail for this" going to say "I'm so glad Trump intervened. He really came through"?

Is that gonna happen?

True. But isn't credit owed where credit is due?  Hey I don't think he should have intervened, but that's just me

As I've observed your posts here over time TBH I don't know whether to LOL at this our try to understand it.

There are SO MANY ways to go with this but I'll just end it here.

Just goes to show that being rich and privileged cuts across races, and contrary to popular belief, is not exclusive to old white people.

Personally, I think it's dumb Trump helped "intervene" here, as I'm sure these kids learned absolutely nothing from this situation, seemingly getting out of it without having to face any real consequences. But such is the life of a celebrity, even if that celebrity was never really earned in the first place.

Ok. Thanks, Mr. Trump - for intervening in this when - at least on the surface - you "HAD" to.

The main thing here is that they are HOME and SAFE.

But credit = trust.

"Tell those SOBs to STAND UP!!!" (National Anthem).

How he handled Puerto Rico.

"There are good people - on BOTH SIDES" (my good home state of Virginia - in CHARLOTTESVILLE).

Other instances where you and I PM'd each other on, Eja. You know what that is.

Trust. It's just not there.
