    Textbook risk of doing business with intl. Countries. Not like there wasn't precedent of Venezuela doing it in the recent past... GM knew it could happen.

    ...and no, I'm not defending the action.

    I would like to know when that ant was opened, maybe between 2008 and 2016?

    I don't understand the question? Obviously some sort of weak attack on Obama...

    You are correct and I was wrong, but Obama is still a pussy.

    What is Trump doing about this takeover of American property? Why hasn't he acted? Has he even made a public statement? Trump is a pussy.

    How much did GM donate to his campaign? GM took the bailout money, so I am sure they gave their donations to HRC. Elections have consequences and that is the chance you take when you build over seas.

    Trump is afraid. He is a pussy. He will never protect Americans overseas. And by the way, not only was the Venezuelan plant build by GM in 1948, which spanned 12 presidents, GM also gave Trump $300,000 for his inauguration.

    I already admitted I was wrong in my assumption, I said campaign, anyone can give money after the fact.

    You were saying something about not protecting Americans overseas?

    Just another bomb dropped, nothing special other than it being bigger than usual. Media candy only.

    What did Obama do in 2014 when this happened to Clorox in Venezuela? What about when it happened first in 2010?

    Sounds like you are saying Trump is like Obama. Or that Trump should act like Obama. I thought Trump was supposed to be different than Obama.

    Look, Trump campaigned on the premise that he is so strong that nobody will ever mess with America again. Now we know that he is a pussy, and everybody is messing with America.

    Russians do fly-bys off Alaska. Trump does nothing.
    Venezuela takes over a GM plant. Trump does nothing.
    North Korea threatens to drop a nuke on America. Trump sends an "armada" to the Philippines.

    Trump is a pussy.

    You make less sense everyday. You've been complaining when Trump drops the biggest ordinance ever and when he moves the fleet. But now he's not doing anything? Stop flip flopping like a fish...
