    Macron Is Playing Trump

    Like a fiddle. He wants Trump back in the Accords,and trust me ,Trump will change his mind with enough adulation.

    But I thought the entire world hated Trump?

    Was that just more Fake News?

    Some people always have to be outraged about Trump.

    Whether it's a handshake, where he stands in a photo op, whatever he says or doesn't say, whatever he does or doesn't do...

    24/7/365 there will be outrage, and mostly about nothing.

    We just need to enjoy the free entertainment...
    Thanks from Jeremy

    What does that have to do with Trump saying," There may be changes to Macron?"

    You know as well as I do Trump eats up flattery.

    Possible. But suspect a negotiation would include something in return for the US.

    No idea what that bargaining chip would be. But that is how compromises usually work.

    Of course he does.

    What are any of us going to do about it?

    Except bitch and moan and whine and cry about it, that is.

    Very possible.

    As long as they are capable of working together, it's no big deal.

    Plus I doubt that they hate each other as much as Obama and Putin did.

    It is not a fake news, nobody really likes Trump. But to find a way like Macron did to deal with him , to bring him into reality and realizes that whatever different opinions could have other leaders, these opinions were worth something to take into account for your president , is perhaps a good thing for him and the rest of the world etc.... But Macron is not prisoner of his ego when he does that, Trump on the Eiffel Tower when Putin was brought in Versailles... two ways to fill the respective needs of two different egos....... What are fake news, are news which are her to flatter the egos of them to be accepted when they would otherwise reject them as partisan news..... Macron was subtle here and in Versailles during several hours he could lecture Putin on all what is awkward in his policies and with Trump he offered him a different kind of glamour, which probably will make Trump of never being abvle to considet that what he, wants, thinks and otherwise is worth something even in his own views...... fake news may be the news you want to listen to, but when they become an addiction, you are anyway weak and Mr. Trump puts himself in that situation of no more knowing what he really wants as a president... It is amazing how much people having no real vision can be easily manipulated when they are offered on the surface a consideration they are not sure to be entitled to......
    Thanks from Dangermouse and HayJenn
