Re: India-US relations: News and Discussions III

The Dems are such fools.
They should try to find out if Trump lied and cheated on his taxes and talk about that.
Instead they are complaining that he took legal deductions and writeoffs that every businessman takes.

One is a fool to pay more taxes than needed. Idiots.

The rap against Trump is "he doesn't know what to talk". People probably compare him to Obama or Clinton who were smooth talkers. Does it really matter what he says? It only matters what he does. Let's see what he does and how he interacts with India. And also how he treats Pakistan.
