She did admit she screwed up, she said she's misspoke.

I may not be a fan of Trump and his staff and administration, but not everything is a deliberate act.

The UK government has rejected a petition calling for Donald Trump's state visit invitation to be withdrawn.
It said it recognised the "strong views" expressed but looked forward to welcoming the US president once details have been arranged.

How shocking for the will of the people to be so willfully dismissed. I look forward to the cross-spectrum protests at this undermining of democracy.

Just to point out a few facts:

There are about 47,383,464 voters in the UK

1,800,000 put names on the petition

that is about 4% of the population

Which leaves 96%

Not really the will of the people is it. When 96% didn't register an interest either way, many of the votes on the website are multiples from the same people and from people outside the UK.

I believe there was a counter petition which garnered around 300,000 votes in favour of a state visit. In total that makes over 2 million people who have expressed an opinion either way on the visit. That is a lot of people! Political parties and governments make policy decisions and guage public opinion based on the views of far fewer people than that through focus groups etc.

I don't think it would've mattered if all 65m of us signed the petition he would still be coming - it's inconceivable that we wouldn't receive the Head of State from one of our closest allies given we will be looking for trade with countries like that. And I can't see how people think for even a minute we wouldn't welcome Trump when we've welcomed Mugabe and numerous other despot dictators over the recent past.

Two points - First,everybody on this forum should welcome President Trump becasue he will bring lots of interesting aircraft with him. (where's the tongue in cheek emoji?). Second, and this point is made seriously, I suspect he will not get to the end of his first term.

I suspect with more things coming out now from the spooks about links to Russia before he was sworn in that it was a possible terminal error to alienate the intelligent community in the US so openly and publicly (wasn't there a tweet likening them to Nazi Germany ?)

My guess was 2 years but, the way he is going, it may not even be that.

Let's hope not. What happens if a POTUS is impeached and leaves office? Does the VP take over permanently or is there a new election? Sorry I can't be bothered to look it up, I figured someone on here will do it for me. ;-)

Thanks :-)

No president has been fully impeached and removed from office - yet. If it happened Pence would become President but whether he has the mandate to continue is open for argument

When you say 'first term' I assume you mean Easter . Seeing we just hit half term, he's heading out the Big door pretty soon. :ninja:

He'll be impeached before the summer, have no doubt. Either that or an "accident" (with suitable patsy) will befall him...

There'll be too many fires to fight, on too many fronts, and he's too dangerous - that much is clear from his first month.

I meant the four years but you might be right! My wife reckons he'll be out of office before 2018. It'll be interesting to see if he allows the release of the CIA Kennedy assassination papers which are meant to be released this year - and all you conspiracy theorists can make of that point what you will. :ninja:
