This post is for those people that show up only occasionally when I write something derogatory about Herr Trump…..actually I have written several times about some of the policies that Trump is embracing that I would approve of….but that does not get the slower out there to show up.
I have agreed with Trump on some of his foreign policy issues….like bringing our troops home….and just the other day I saw another issue that I would give him an “atta boy”…..drug prices.
President Trump is reportedly set to sign an executive order Friday to reduce prescription-drug costs.
The president’s election-year effort was first reported by The Hill newspaper, which obtained an invitation sent to some GOP lawmakers for a 3 p.m. White House event on drug pricing.
The exact details of the executive order remain unclear. But sources told the newspaper that it could include a version of an existing proposal to lower the price of some U.S. drugs by connecting them to lower prices paid in other countries.
Please I have NO illusion that this is just a way to gain a little support when poll numbers ware waning……but if it saves me money on my drugs then he has my thanks.
And yet another “atta boy” for Trump……
We all know that Trump is a voracious Twitter user, right?
And I have often asked myself he actually knows what he is Tweeting…..well I have an answer to my rhetorical question.
President Trump acknowledged in an interview released Friday that he “often” regrets his tweets and retweets.
“It used to be in the old days before this, you’d write a letter and you’d say, ‘this letter is really bad,’ you put it on your desk and you go back tomorrow and you say, ‘oh, I’m glad I didn’t send it,’” Trump told Barstool Sports’ founder Dave Portnoy.
“But we don’t do that with Twitter. We put it out instantaneously, we feel great, and then you start getting phone calls, ‘Did you really say this?’ I say, ‘What’s wrong with that?’ And you find a lot of things,” continued the president, who is often the subject of criticism over his use of his Twitter account. “You know what I find? It’s not the tweets, it’s the retweets that get you in trouble.”
Trump went on to say he doesn’t always look closely at the tweets that he shares from his Twitter account, which has 84 million followers.
He had similarly said that some of his tweets create problems for the White House in an interview last year.
My question is if you realize that some of your Tweets are not good at all….why continue to do it?
Is it an addiction that he cannot break?
