  • FACT CHECK: Trump's bluster on hurricanes, guns, economy

    TRUMP: "I'm not sure that I've ever even heard of a category 5. I knew it existed and I've seen some category 4's. You don't even see them that much. But a category 5 is something that I don't know that I've ever even heard the term other than I know it's there." — remarks Sunday at FEMA headquarters.

    THE FACTS: In his third hurricane season as president, Trump has had plenty of exposure to category 5 storms.

            I notice your President ran away from the floods, hurricanes and bad weather by going to Camp David high in the hills of Maryland and above the flood waters.......a REAL man of the people...

              And played golf for two days.

              Didn't he used to criticize Obama for golfing too much? And didn't he say he wouldn't do that?

              So much for integrity...

              And he didn't go to Poland ostensibly because of the hurricane and sent Pence instead. And then he congratulated the Poles on the 80th anniversary of War II-in which they were invaded by both Germany and Russia and suffered the deaths of 20% of their population, including the overwhelming majority of the 3 million Jewish Poles. And then Poland was taken over by the Soviets and became a satellite until the Soviet Union collapsed in 1989-1991.

              What a guy!

                Did you also happen to notice how many congress-creatures and senators rushed directly to the scene? (none) They directly represent those people.

                Of course, I'm sure it's different where you are from....right?

                      Not defending trump, but about the last thing a president should be doing is rushing into the storm area while it is in progress.
                      The local authorities do not want to have to deal with accommodating the needs of the presidential entourage while they are trying to prepare for a hurricane.
                      If he doesn't visit after the storm you can criticize him, but condemning him for not visiting areas that have not yet been damaged seems a bit of a stretch. Especially since we don't even know if there will be any damage

                      I live in Illinois and my State hasn't been damaged by the hurricane yet either. Should I expect trump to visit me?

                        You should immediately jump on a plane and help the people of the Bahamas! By TDS standards, anything else is showing a lack of care.

                        In the big picture, this thread is just another TDS self licking ice cream cone.......it serves no purpose except to talk trash about the POTUS.

                          You do know that the storm stopped at the Bahamas, right? Since it hasn't reached us yet, why should the president go to Florida? IIRC, the Bahamas used to be a British colony, so it's your leader who needs to rush down there and help out.

                          And why do you care what America does in the first place? Trump isn't your president, and America is not your country. You need to concentrate on saving what little is left of the grand old "British empire", eh wot?

                            How is it possible for trump to ignore my need to be hugged right now?

                              The only reason that hurricane Dorian stopped and is now humbly crawling WAY FROM FLORIDA is POTUS trumps threat to drop a hydrogen bomb on it...….
