"Buy your dreams, a dollar down...."
Democrats are smiling in D.C. that the Freedom Caucus, with the help of Club For Growth and Heritage, have saved Planned Parenthood & Ocare!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 26, 2017
This, of course, is how you win friends and influence people. Pay attention, class: this is world class politicking. LBJ is taking notes in the afterlife.
General Kelly is doing a great job at the border. Numbers are way down. Many are not even trying to come in anymore.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 27, 2017

The Republican House Freedom Caucus was able to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. After so many bad years they were ready for a win!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 28, 2017
So much winning! We're getting sick of all the winning! Besides I'm not quite sure what the second sentence has to do with the first. Oh, well: communicating directly to the people! Hooray!
The Democrats will make a deal with me on healthcare as soon as ObamaCare folds - not long. Do not worry, we are in very good shape!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 28, 2017
"We"? Does he have a mouse in his pocket?
Trump’s may have been the most irresponsible remarks uttered by any political leader in the long debate over the Affordable Care Act, because it signaled to insurance companies and to enrollees that the administration would make little or no effort to avoid an avoidable outcome.Remember when Trump was going to restore jobs? Trump remembers:
“That rhetoric in and of itself has a destructive impact,” Andy Slavitt, the last acting administrator of Medicare and Medicaid under the Obama administration, told me. That’s because Trump’s words could drive insurers out of the individual market. “If you’re a competitor in the marketplace and you hear that the regulator wants the market to explode, you say, ‘Why should I participate?’”
Big announcement by Ford today. Major investment to be made in three Michigan plants. Car companies coming back to U.S. JOBS! JOBS! JOBS!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 28, 2017
Except, still, not so much:
FYI: The last Ford jobs announcement that Trump touted was negotiated in 2015, had nothing to do w/Trump's election https://t.co/Rq7Iuh5Nd1 https://t.co/CK87yD7FgE— Michelle Ye Hee Lee (@myhlee) March 28, 2017
Really, really not so much:
Ford decided to expand in Michigan rather than in Mexico. But the decision has more to do with the company’s long-term goal — particularly its plans to invest in electric vehicles — than with the administration. Here’s what Ford chief executive Mark Fields said about the company’s decision to abandon plans to open a factory in Mexico: “The reason that we are not building the new plant, the primary reason, is just demand has gone down for small cars.”
Trump’s bravado on these jobs announcements is becoming a bad joke. He claims credit when little or no credit is due to his policies. Moreover, he is counting these jobs as jobs in the bank, when corporate plans frequently change according to market or economic forces.
Trump has promised to create 10 million jobs over the next four years, and that ultimately is what he will be judged on.
And, of course, being POTUS means you have access to information the rest of us don't!
