Regarding Pompeo"s remarks this morning on FTN.

Twice he responded to questions about apparent discrepancies in some of Trump's statements regarding Russia and election interference by saying (paraphrasing here) that the Presidents tweets had made his position quite clear.

So this is where we seem to be, folks. The POTUS rolls out his foreign policy on Twitter. Apparently no discussion with staff or government agency heads, no official announcements, just a man and his phone. I'm really struggling with this concept.

1. It's frightening as hell....he just dropped this tweet about Chinese tarrifs



For 10 months, China has been paying Tariffs to the USA of 25% on 50 Billion Dollars of High Tech, and 10% on 200 Billion Dollars of other goods. These payments are partially responsible for our great economic results. The 10% will go up to 25% on Friday. 325 Billions Dollars....

....of additional goods sent to us by China remain untaxed, but will be shortly, at a rate of 25%. The Tariffs paid to the USA have had little impact on product cost, mostly borne by China. The Trade Deal with China continues, but too slowly, as they attempt to renegotiate. No!

6. As usual, Trump's got it all ass-backwards.

Here's a good explanation of how tariffs work and how Trump's got it wrong: https://www.taxpolicycenter.org/taxvox/what-tariff-and-who-pays-it

8. Just read up on his interview a bit and I'm gobsmacked...I shouldn't be, I know but holy fkn hell

WTF animates Pompeo?? His only comment about North Korea having likely EXECUTED people that he himself negotiated with in Hanoi is “Kim Jong Un gets to pick his own team–just like Trump.” Really?? I’m surprised he’s not denouncing the rumors, to normalize & suck up some more.

@ThisWeekABC:

"I don't have anything to add to that," Secretary of State Mike Pompeo tells @jonkarl when asked if the U.S. can verify reports that some of the people who were part of the North Korean negotiating team in Hanoi were executed
https://abcn.ws/2JIMBvS




Pompeo says post-Mueller Report, he thinks US-Russia relations enter new phase. He will meet Lavrov to plan another Trump-Putin summit. “To make it safer for Americans traveling the world AND frankly Russian citizens traveling the world.”

9. I saw that interview and he was smiling when he said ....

“Kim Jong Un gets to pick his own team–just like Trump.” The question involved EXECUTING people. Soulless fuck.
