Donald Trump tried to turn the killing of five Dallas police officers into a photo op, but the NYPD flatly rejected his request.
According to The New York Daily News, Trump begged the NYPD to allow him to address officers at roll call:
On Friday morning Donald Trump begged the city’s top cop to let him speak to a 3 p.m. roll call at the NYPD Midtown North Precinct in the wake of the murders of five Dallas police officers Thursday during a protest over police shooting.
But Police Commissioner Bill Bratton strongly rejected the request.
“Our interest is staying out of the politics of the moment, and not to provide photo ops,” he told reporters. “If Mr. Trump wants to speak to me, I would be happy to brief him on what we’re doing. If Sen. Clinton wants to speak to me, I would very happy to brief her on what we’re doing. But we are not in the business of providing photo ops for our candidates.”
This was more of the same old Trump. Donald Trump never misses a chance to exploit the pain and tragedy of others for his own personal gain. For those who thought that Trump’s statement on the Dallas shootings was a sign of growth, think again.
He should know - he's making them worse. There's an obvious reason why white supremacists are flocking to his campaign.
"MYTH: “Keystone XL will provide little economic benefit in the United States.”
Fact: The Keystone XL Pipeline project will support the creation of 9,000 construction jobs in the UnitedStates – work for pipefitters, welders, electricians, heavy equipment operators and many more"

And bad news for the doom and gloom, lemon sucking, sour grapes, bile and venom crowd. They are going to need more lemons. Old angry while people who want to make America great by throwing a wet blanket on everything is sight - moaning and groaning and whining and complaining day after day after day.
Well, they can still blame everything on blacks, Hispanics and Muslims. They will anyway.

Get in now - these guys can really pick 'em.

"As an example, he reneged on the opportunity to create jobs by working with the Canadian Government in building the Keystone Pipeline."
[As usual you don't have the facts:
The Keystone pipeline creates "35 permanent jobs" - PolitiFact
Go ahead. Look it up.]
International perceptions of Trump were revealed in recent polling. Asked if the businessman would do the right thing once in the White House, only 14 percent of Canadians said he would. Some 12 percent of Britons expressed confidence in the mogul, along with nine percent of French respondents, and eight percent of those in Spain. Only three percent of Greeks welcomed a Trump presidency.

The American Middle Class Hasn’t Gotten A Raise In 15 Years
In 1988, the typical American adult was 40 years old, white and married, with a high school diploma. If he was a man, he probably worked full time. If she was a woman, she probably didn’t.
Twenty-five years later, Americans are older, more diverse and more educated. We are less likely to be married and more likely to live alone. Work is divided more evenly between the sexes. One thing that hasn’t changed? The income of the median U.S. household is still just under $52,000.
[How is it you don't know these things?
[I repeat: "Lower corporate taxes helping the middle class is the most laughable." ]
"Sorry, but many of your Progressive Talking Points have been debunked.
Science- Republicans supported the Space Program, what happened to Nasa?
Education-Less Federal Gov. and more control given to parents, teachers and school boards is not disregarding education.
Taxes-Lower corporate taxes helps everyone including the Middle Class."
[A lot of opinions. But no support offered for any of them. Lower corporate taxes helping the middle class is the most laughable. ]
Intel up nicely too. The board mutts are sad.
Even though there are only 7. Hahahahahaha.
You can't make this stuff up. It's no wonder his campaign is now reducing his TV appearances until he can learn to keep his feet out of his mouth and to stop praising dictators and mass murderers.
LOL, of course Trump threatens to sue. No one on the planet has ever tried to bully people through the courts more than Donald Trump.
Donald Trump came to the nation’s capital Thursday to unite the Republican Party, but brief verbal scuffles in a meeting with Senate Republicans soured the trip.
Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake told Trump he is uncomfortable endorsing him, the Washington Post reported.
Trump told Flake he’d lose his re-election bid — even though Flake doesn’t face the voters again until 2018.
Trump also went out of his way to criticize two other GOP senators — Ben Sasse of Nebraska, who has staunchly opposed his candidacy, and Mark Kirk of Illinois, who took the remarkable step of un-endorsing Trump last month.
From New York Post
Clinton leads Trump in a head-to-head matchup, 51 percent to 42 percent, with 7 percent undecided, according to the poll.
In a three-way race among Clinton, Trump and Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson, Clinton maintains her margin of victory over Trump, topping both candidates with 45 percent support. Trump follows at 36 support, with Johnson at 11 percent and 8 percent remaining undecided.
To watch Donald Trump rant and rave uncontrollably on the stump and on Twitter ? praising Saddam Hussein for his disregard for civil liberties, insisting the anti-Semitic propaganda he inadvertently borrowed from neo-#$%$s is as innocent as a Disney poster ? is to ponder the psychology of a party that would entrust supreme executive authority to a racist, nationalistic, power-worshiping demagogue.
To be perfectly clear, Trump is not Hitler or a #$%$. Trump?s racism is not of the genocidal variety, and he is committed neither to a program of Darwinian racial conquest nor the principled imposition of one-party rule. If President Trump does start a world war, it would probably be as a result of blundering rather than a long-term master plan. But the two figures do have certain traits in common relative to the political environments they inhabit.
Like Hitler, Trump is a radical, authoritarian figure who lies outside the normal parameters of his country?s conservative governing class. Thus, there is a parallel between the two men's unexpected rise to power that is worth considering: Why would traditional conservatives willingly hand power to a figure so dangerous that he threatened their own political and economic interests?
