You're right. It is interesting. Like media noise. Which leads me to believe if our main source of info is the media we would never know what is going on. For me Trump is a strong personality, and he doesn't care what the media thinks of him. He negotiated some cut throat deals with Canada which was easy, as the Prime Minister of Canada, Trudeau is a real pushover. All Trump had to do is threaten and do his usual stage shows in Twitter and he got the maximum deal for the US. On the popularity front with Canada US went down a few notches, but who cares, Canada is so super dependent on the economy of the US, what choice does it really have? Trump is also very tough about China, which I personally like very much. Some of his Twitter and other speeches may sound nonsensical and possibly not to be taken seriously, but again that is just a stage show. It was high time for the US to take a stand against China and he helped to do that. At least he is engaging the US enemies on their home turf, like North Korea, and more. He has the ability for creating big media storms around anything he says and then through that highlighting the issue on hand. He's definitely not a wimp. For sure. I love it that he refers to the Corona Virus as the China virus. That is what I think it should be named as well.Yozora said:It's interesting that you mention Trump negotiating tough deals...I've mostly just heard of him annoying foreign leaders and doing things like try to buy Greenland. The recent Axios interview with Trump also made me wonder if Trump cares that people are still dying from the pandemic. He seemed more interested in making himself look good. Perhaps the media slanted their coverage of the interview unfairly though. I wish Trump wasn't constantly bashing people on Twitter, and tried to act at least a little more presidential. He's burned too many bridges with women and minorities for me to consider voting for him, but Biden is also kind of a disappointment... Sometimes I wish that the US had tons of major political parties, like I've heard some European countries have. At least that way there would be more of a choice and I wouldn't feel pressured to vote for the "lesser of two evils" all the time... There are a couple smaller parties here, but they have no chance of winning and if someone votes for them it's kind of like wasting a vote
Hopefully this Covid 19 virus will pass soon as I think it's getting to me. I'm itching to get around more freely, but I guess this is just the time when I shouldn't be even thinking about that. Until there is no vaccine yet, and a vaccine that is proven to work without side effects, I guess we'll never be able to rest easy.
