A lot of people were skeptical when I said May and Trump would form a close partnership. Well that was proven on the news. May admitted that she had a long term special relationship with Trump.

http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/entr...b020461a1e8713

By contrast Angela Merkel was not so friendly neither was Mr Corbyn. Merkel said that Germany and the US would only work together if Trump respected the multiculturalism and liberty that both countries have.

Its shameful that May has admitted to this special relationship she has with Trump totally contrary to Merkels and Mr Corbyns attitude towards Trump, knowing full well that he is racist, sexist and opposed to free healthcare and welfare.

Oh no the leader of a powerful country that has been allies for a long time is still in a "special" relationship with The worlds most powerul country, how could may be so evil.

Might want to check your facts,

Read his healthcare reforms.

[*]Completely repeal Obamacare. Our elected representatives must eliminate the individual mandate. No person should be required to buy insurance unless he or she wants to.[*]Modify existing law that inhibits the sale of health insurance across state lines. As long as the plan purchased complies with state requirements, any vendor ought to be able to offer insurance in any state.[*][*]Ok so offering healthcare in all states not just one, seems good.[*]


Allow individuals to use Health Savings Accounts (HSAs). Contributions into HSAs should be tax-free and should be allowed to accumulate. These accounts would become part of the estate of the individual and could be passed on to heirs without fear of any death penalty. These plans should be particularly attractive to young people who are healthy and can afford high-deductible insurance plans. These funds can be used by any member of a family without penalty. The flexibility and security provided by HSAs will be of great benefit to all who participate.

Ok allowing tax free storage of money for medical issues that can be passed on,
seems reasonable putting X amount in a month so if something bad happens you are .


Require price transparency from all healthcare providers, especially doctors and healthcare organizations like clinics and hospitals
Ok so making sure that when people go in for a $1000 surgery that they know exactly what they are paying, seems good.


Medicaid far better without federal overhead. States will have the incentives to seek out and eliminate fraud, waste and abuse to preserve our precious resources.
Cracking down on people abusing the system to get things they do not really need, seems fair. Will help out the innocent poorer people.


Remove barriers to entry into free markets for drug providers that offer safe, reliable and cheaper products. Congress will need the courage to step away from the special interests and do what is right for America. Though the pharmaceutical industry is in the private sector, drug companies provide a public service. Allowing consumers access to imported, safe and dependable drugs from overseas will bring more options to consumers.

Ok allowing drugs from overseas, this will help with specialist medication and stop monopolies from hiking up the price of a drug like the epipen.




Protect the economic well-being of the lawful immigrants already living here by curbing uncontrolled foreign worker admissions
  • Select immigrants based on their likelihood of success in the U.S. and their ability to be financially self-sufficient.


Ok so helping Legal Immigrants and Skilled people looking to live in the U.S and helping everyone by ensuring legal people have jobs.






  • Provide low-income households an Expanded Earned Income Tax Credit – in the form a Childcare rebate – and a matching $500 contribution for their savings accounts.
  • Creating a new, dynamic market for family-based and community-based solutions.
  • Incentivizing employers to provide childcare at the workplace.
  • Provide 6 weeks of paid leave to new mothers before returning to work.

Seems very sexist allowing women more time off work, and childcare at work, meaning more mothers can work and look after kids.


But no trump is all evil and wants to kill all migrants and women and black people.


Sure the healthcare is not like Britain but it seems a lot better than before to me.
Sure Trump has said some stupid things but he is not sexist he may have said sexist things but If everything I had said or you had said was made public we would get massive backlash.

I dont think trump is the best president but he is sure better than Hillary, but only time can tell.

Anyone who interprets a clear and specific reference to the UK-US special relationship as a claim to a personal special relationship is (a) not very bright or (b) being deliberately and dishonestly specious.

Which is it in this case?

I don't think Trump will want to have much to do with either Merkel or Corbyn. Both have been outspoken against Trump and both have a limited lifespan in politics. Merkel will be out by this time next year and with Corbyn's policies Labour will do so badly in the next election that he will have to resign.

May knows that Brexit is coming so will want to keep Trump sweet to get the best possible trade deal.

Ive explored the possibility of an economic union with freedom of movement between the UK and US I've also done a thread on it. Yes it would be great to travel to another country without visas or to work or study in another country without work permits or study permits as we used to do in the EU.
Tbh it is simply impractical. The US is very restrictive on who they let in and that simply could not translate to EU style freedom of movement. Not to mention the distance. Its at least 7 hrs to fly to the US. Compared to around 1 hr average flying time to most cities in Northern Europe.

The only practical solution if we need or want any free market and free movement is with Russia. Its a lot closer, not so restrictive on who is allowed into Russia and there is every chance that with Trump on Mays side, a better Anglo relationship with Russia is quite likely.

Oh no look at me doing work. Besides it only took me 5 mins.

Good job trying to shame someone who actually puts a bit of effort into his posts.
It reflects on you badly

not trying to shame you, sorry if i came across that way. but maybe tone down a bit? you'll be more approachable
(i half wasn't going to say anything in the 1st place because i expected a response like this) - kind of just confirms what i thought.

I strongly suspect that May's more positive reception to Trump will go much further in a developing a positive relationship than the European response of holding a crisis meeting.

Angela Merkel is destroying Germany of course she gets praised for it

Anyone who rejects multiculturalism is an extremism in todays world


Don't you think the majority should have a say in the future of their country
Ie, the right wing populists

Even if what they want goes against the interest of a small minority, who only want to destroy us?
