    I'm waiting for the "big beautiful wall" to built around Trump and those who persistently excuse his morally bankrupt words and actions.

    BTW, Trump doesn't study, so the idea that this is just a slip of the tongue is far less likely, imo, than the fact that he has already proven in that he really does't know his geography very well.

    Ah, but at least he knows Putin loves him-- a true bromance.

    BTW, how are the Kurds doing? :( Anyhow watch the fiasco of Trump's presentation yesterday? The nicest word I can find for it is "disgraceful".
