Mueller Investigation

TRUMP | BEGIN QUOTE
Oh, I get it! I am a very good developer, happily living my life, when I see our Country going in the wrong direction (to put it mildly). Against all odds, I decide to run for President & continue to run my business - very legal & very cool, talked about it on the campaign trail ....

... Lightly looked at doing a building somewhere in Russia. Put up zero money, zero guarantees and didn't do the project. Witch Hunt!
END QUOTE

It should be noted the president is in Argentina, where the time is one hour later than the time in the eastern United States.

~ Did Trump reveal those facts in his written responses to Robert Mueller’s questions?

~ Why did everyone in Trump’s circles all deny having any contact with any Russians?

~ Where and When – Specifically, did Trump tell people attending his rallies that he had attempted to broker real estate deals in Russia?

~ After years of denying any involvement in Russia, how is it suddenly “legal and cool” that Trump is now admitting that he was involved in business negotiations in Russia?

~ Government employees with classified statuses are required to identify and report any relationships with foreign nationals as a term of their employment. Which Trump family members, who also serve as assistants to the president, have revealed their trips and correspondence with Russians to obtain security clearances in the White House?

~ Have the choices made by Trump, specifically his lies about his dealings in Russia, placed the national security of the United States at risk?

If so – Why and How?

If not – Why not?

NAFTA now called USMCA

BEGIN QUOTE
Just signed one of the most important, and largest, Trade Deals in U.S. and World History. The United States, Mexico and Canada worked so well together in crafting this great document. The terrible NAFTA will soon be gone. The USMCA will be fantatstic for all!

Message to Alaska Residents

BEGIN QUOTE
To the Great people of Alaska. You have been hit hard by a "big one." Please follow the directions of the highly trained professionals who are there to help you. Your Federal Government will spare no expense. God Bless you ALL!
END QUOTE

In this tweet, the president explains to Alaskans that they have experienced a “big one”. He is referring to the 7.0 earthquake that hit about 8 a.m. there (noon eastern U.S. time).

He asks that they follow directions of the highly trained professionals. Where should Alaskans find which particular professionals?

He indicates the federal government will spare no expense. This is ambiguous. Does he intend that the federal government will provide assistance to residences, or for particular governmental tasks? It is unclear what has been promised, and for whom it is intended.

The president is in Argentina for the G20 summit. He is also aware of the speculations about his associations with Russia and Saudi Arabia, and how those associations may affect his foreign policy decisions.

Self Congratulations

BEGIN QUOTE
Great reviews on the USMCA - sooo much better than NAFTA.
END QUOTE

The United States, Mexico and Canada Agreement (USMCA) is an agreement reached at the G20 summit by the three nations. Whether there are significant differences between this agreement and NAFTA is not an issue I am following. Therefore, my first question is:

~ How does USMCA differ from NAFTA?

It is unseemly for the president to tweet a national command.
