    Making a list and checking it twice

    No, Not Santa, but The Donald

    What do you guys think of this:

    us to take names in united nations vote on jerusalem recognition

    Donald will take names of those nations who vote against the US position on Jerusalem
    Not sure what he plans to do with that list, but how many nations do you think will be intimidated by such a comment?
    The only sure bulwark of continuing liberty is a government strong enough to protect the interests of the people, and a people strong enough and well enough informed to maintain its sovereign control over the goverment.

    I'm delighted he's making it personal. The list of those countries which back his position will be as interesting as the list of those who vote criticizing America's choice. I rather hope it will show how far America has fallen from being the superpower it was back in the 50s and 60s. Having issued this bombastic threat, Trumpolini has made the UN General Assembly vote more interesting for both sides. Poseurs should never ever bluff like this.

    I note the Security Council split 13 to 1 on the same subject last week, with a veto from an extremely isolated America.

    I'll be interested to see which way the House of Saud votes. Are they custodians of the holy places or are they obediently yoked to America's foreign policy?

    My suspicion is that by this bully boy tactic the trump will cause the vote against him to harden, and some who might have abstained to vote against.

    But maybe some will be bullied. We are particularly vulnerable I'd say and an abstention wouldn't surprise though it would disappoint. This is outside the normal run of things to me and I honestly can't even guess how countries will react.

    I'll put money on the UK voting to criticize America's choice, the Foreign Office has more clout than that powerless moral derelict in number 10.

    Re: Making a list and checking it twice

    He's taking names????? So another words....trump is sitting in his office going through a list of all the little guys in the world the US gives any kind of trade or funding to? He might want to think about that for a minute. Because the charitable funding of any country (lets be honest here) is to threaten and intimidate when it comes to the crunch. But these days there are others happy to fund all those little guys struggling.

    Yep...... THINGS ARE JUST GREAT AT THE WHITE HOUSE!!!

    Sounds more like Nixon's Enemies List:
    ""Nixon’s Enemies List" is the informal name of what started as a list of President of the United States Richard Nixon’s major political opponents compiled by Charles Colson, written by George T. Bell[1] (assistant to Colson, special counsel to the White House), and sent in memorandum form to John Dean on September 9, 1971. The list was part of a campaign officially known as "Opponents List" and "Political Enemies Project"."

    I think it is safe to answer NONE. Safety in numbers.
