    I believe the timing says that the HUGE public outcry predated the trump response. It's reality tv. Existence will be interesting for the next Season. Will the human race survive? YOU vote! We enact your results live on the News!
    It is a little disheartening that the press are still acting more like Trump's personal PR agents than journalists when covering a story. Just about all of them gave Trump credit for shutting it down and most didn't even bother to mention all of the phone calls from voters that actually got the job done. I'm sorry to admit that I was fooled by their headlines.

    Because he's an obsessive-compulsive egotistical bully.

    Donald J. Trump ‏@realDonaldTrump
    Rupert Murdoch is a great guy who likes me much better as a very successful candidate than he ever did as a very successful developer!
    And our wonderful govt is about to let bhim have full control of sky TV.

    Why is she being viewed as brave? She lives in a free country where presumably you can say what you like about the president, after all no one called Trump brave for going on about birth certificates. How is it brave or disrespectful to criticise a president?

    Hugh laurie was perhaps funnier

    I do not remember ever seeing such statement coming from top officals.

    Top U.S. officials tell the world to ignore Trump’s tweets

    MUNICH — Amid global anxiety about President Trump’s approach to global affairs, U.S. officials had a message to a gathering of Europe’s foreign policy elite this weekend: pay no attention to the man tweeting behind the curtain.

    And how can other leaders just ignore the tweets of the POTUS? May wouldn't have said anything about Trump's tweets unless she felt she absolutely had to but him retweeting openly fascist propaganda from an openly fascist group was too far even for her. Glad to see she had the backbone to do it as well, and I don't have a lot of time for her.
    The crowd: "Yes! We are all individuals!"
    Lone voice: "I'm not."

    Trump Tweets to bipass the media because they would LOVE to misquote him or leave out half of what he says to make him look bad.

    Instead, they get to write all about his crazy tweets. And they can't misquote him. He really says all the BS.

    No, just causing hardship for Americans. The tariffs get passed on to the consumer & American jobs will suffer.
