I was thinking that if [t]Rump becomes president ::: shiver ::: it’d be like having a mean girl in the Oval; you know, one of those girls who bashes other people without having all, or any, of the facts.
Almost as soon as Hillary Clinton announced Tim Kaine as her running mate, GOP Homecoming Queen Donald [t]Rump took to Twitter to blast Kaine for his support of the Trans-Pacific Partnership [TPP]:
Donald [t]Rump has made his opposition to TPP a central platform in his efforts to promote his Make America Great Again and pander to progressive Bernie Sanders supporters.
But before trolling Tim Kaine on Twitter, [t]Rump mike have taken a nanosecond to study up on his running mate, Mike Pence, and his support for [TPP]:
And, in addition to a 140 character or less message on the greatness of TPP, Mike Pence also wrote a letter:
“As you know, my administration has made job growth job number one. We passed the largest state tax cut in Indiana history, lowered the corporate income tax, reduced the regulatory burden, and have taken numerous other measures to improve the business environment and the education and workforce skills of Hoosiers.
Those are things we can do at home, but reducing tariffs and other trade barriers so that Indiana businesses can enjoy increased market access and fairly compete on the world stage is something that Congress must do. I encourage your support for Trade Promotion Authority, the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership and any other trade-related measures when they are brought before the Congress for consideration.”
So, while [t]Rump blasts Kaine for his support of TPP — and to be clear, Tim Kaine has now says he cannot not support TPP in its current form — he missed the part where his own Veep choice not only liked the idea, but begged people to support it.
I go back to one of the multitudes if times that [t]Rump has said something idiotic on Twitter because he cannot be bothered with research or facts, and Hillary Clinton Tweeted:
“Delete your account.”
Sadly, Mean Girls and Donald [t]Rump don’t realize you’re talking to them.
