This is..BIG LETTERS
" IS " Negotiating the Trump way.
You will see how this method will speed up the entire process.....WATCH, and be impressed, then, if you will, please retract your snide comment.
His negotiating style certainly worked to repeal and replace Obamacare! It worked to force Mexico to build he Great Wall. It worked to create friendly relations with Russia (when Trump says relations, are at "an all time low," that is just his negotiating style!). It will work to send all the Dreamers back to a land none of them knows since they were brought here, having broken no laws themselves, as children.
It worked to repeal he sanctions against Russia, as he Republicans voted 51-1 against his proposal, a mere bit of smoke and mirrors to mask his true victory at a future date.
So far, his mastery of negotiations have led only Mexico, Canada, Germany, Iran, Iraq, Russia, Australia, and the G-20 nations to view him with deep horror and suspicion, all part of his snake oil....oops, I mean negotiating tactics.
As Sun Tzu wrote: when you are weak, act strong; and when you are strong act weak. All of Trump's failures are actually sophisticated tactics to throw his enemies, from the media to the majority of voters, to our key allies off balance them.
The Art of the Steal...oops, I mean Deal......is the art of deception, distraction, and feigning weakness and failure. War is Peace, in the era of Trump the Great, and There is no success like failure, to quote the Noble Prize winner in literature.
Just wait: it is assured that Trump will take the US into bankruptcy but manage to make billions out of the deal, as he has in his private business life. It takes genius to make billions out of bankruptcies and failures, but our President has the secret, and it is only a matter of time before the wars he is starting bring in big bucks and jobs...and the economic recession is tax cuts and boosting military spending will cause creates a therapeutic correction that Makes America Great Again! Whether its MAGA or SMEGMA, just because it smells foul doesn't mean it won't make the real Americans, the very rich, even richer.....and what trickles down may smell like piss but in fact, it is the MANNA of the heavenly Art of the Deal pouring down to MAKE AMERICA WHITE...OOPS, I mean GREAT, once again, as it was in the days when Old Dixie stood tall and proud.
If you don't appreciate satire, I suggest you skip this post.
BTW, Nixon tried the madman theory of negotiation. "Nixon's Chief of Staff, H. R. Haldeman, wrote that Nixon had confided to him:
I call it the Madman Theory, Bob. I want the North Vietnamese to believe I've reached the point where I might do anything to stop the war. We'll just slip the word to them that, "for God's sake, you know Nixon is obsessed about communism. We can't restrain him when he's angry—and he has his hand on the nuclear button" and Ho Chi Minh himself will be in Paris in two days begging for peace."
How did that work out? The US was chased out of Vietnam as the North Vietnamese took control, and Nixon resigned in disgrace. Karma is a bitch, and history is karma.
