    This strikes me as analogous to a guy who hates kids giving a speech on child abuse at a NAMBLA meeting.

    One poster said 'libs lost, get over it". Sorry but actually America lost with this unpopular President. He did not win the majority of votes in the election and the rest who didn't vote are not supporting him.

    Trump has the worst ratings of any President in recent history. Fact.

    So when this poster said "Libs lost", actually Liberals are wining and winning big time as the majority of GOP member have fleeing from this collapsing Presidency. The majority of Americans are not supporting this regime, and the GOP is most likely going to lose control of the House after they did so much damage to millions of Americans possibly losing their health care. And millions of seniors taking the brunt of the costs. Of course the GOP panders to the rich and they gave them a trillion back in taxes by this repeal. That's supposed to be good for the middle class? Not holding water with that argument.

    Now with a Special Prosecutor things are not going to be controlled by the lies and dishonesty daily spewed out of the White House. The Justice Department will now control this and the side shows will not distract from their mission.

    Let's hope his remarks don't touch off an explosion. We may be only one of Donald's insults away from disaster.

    I hope his speech writers are people who know Islam. Then, we should hope he sticks to the script.

    the 9/11 terrorists were Saudi Arabian.
    Trump is Islamaphobic.

    This in going down like a lecture by Jerry Farwell [who believes Mormons are a CULT and NOT Christians] speaking at BYU or LDS General conference about 'true' Christianity.

    For those unaware, Islam, much like Christianity, is divided into several different sects based on divisions after the death of Muhammad. The main branches are Sunni and Shia. Within Sunni there are two similar ultra-conservative sects called Salafi and Wahhabi.

    These two branches are the source of the vast majority of Muslim terrorists and there is significant intermingling of the two groups. Wahhabism is also the dominant sect within Saudi Arabia.

    This is B-A-D.

    Trump already has MORE than half of the United States already mad at him,
    he can even unify the Republicans around him,
    let along his ISLAMaphobic rantings,
    ...this is not going to be good.

    Maybe he'll give them intel on our secret agents in the middle east and their home addresses. Anyplace that Trump goes is a threat to our national security. How far does he have to go and how much damage to our country's security, reputation and world standing is enough for the GOP to pull the plug?

    Can Saudi Arabia keep him? We surely don't need Donald.

    The need to confront radical ideologies?
    The Saudis are among the worst there are.
