Perhaps Trump wanted to build a tower in Moscow so he could escape New York’s building regulations. If you want a good deal, pay Vladimir Putin to grant you a charter to do business in Russia. You can be one of his oligarchs.
Play the position on the board. Find the best move. If you lose the current game, you can set up the pieces and play again. Many players have won when they thought they might lose, if they just find the best move at each turn.
The part of Trump’s presidency I like the best is his feud with the intelligence community. It’s fun to see …
We will have to see what Mueller’s investigation actually produces. Meanwhile, I’m happy to say, theories about shady people who conspire to do bad things are back in vogue right now.
