    Default Down on His Knees...BEGGING!

    Trump begged Vietnam to buy US military equipment because he needed ‘quick wins’


    President Donald Trump reportedly begged the Vietnamese government to buy American military equipment because he needed “quick wins” ahead of upcoming elections.

    Sources tell Bloomberg that Trump grilled Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc about why his country wasn’t spending more money buying American weapons.

    “He needed quick wins, he told his team in the room, because he’d be running for re-election before anyone realized,” Bloomberg reports. “And weapons sales, in Trump’s view, are good for his approval ratings.”

    Trump apparently spent much of his trip hawking American weapons to other countries, as he sought to emulate the early success he had in cutting a massive weapons deal with Saudi Arabia earlier this year.

    “Trump rarely set down in a country without pointing out that buying a few F-18s would go a long way toward winning his heart,” Bloomberg writes. “But he’ll return home to Washington without having secured a major new order for American defense contractors.”

    Bloomberg’s sources also say that Trump disappointed many American allies in Asia during his trip by showing an unwillingness to embrace a long-term strategy for the United States’ relationship with the region.

    “Local leaders were looking for seriousness and not just stamina, any sign Trump was prepared to provide a potent counter-balance to China,” writes Bloomberg. “There, he offered them little reason for optimism. He was already tweeting about the tax reform fight back home before he even left Manila, his final stop.”

    “I started the process, all the troops are coming home,
    they (Biden) couldn’t stop the process.
    21 years is enough.
    They (Biden) couldn’t stop the process,
    they (Biden) wanted to but couldn’t stop the process.”

    - Donald Trump - June 2021

    Thanks Fat Donald.

    I’m not a fan of raw story, I don’t even think this is true, but I do think Rump is desperate for something.

    Wow, never thought I would see this.

    There's enough real information out there, especially about Trump, that these fringe sites that peddle half truths and falsehoods (they have them on the right as well) should have a much smaller audience.

    Al Jazeera backs up the OP.

    And so does Reuters!

    Once again proving if they can't refute the facts, they immediately attempt to discredit the source.

    Even Jarod called it out. If you want real discussion Zap post from something mainstream. Otherwise this is what you get.

    How does Reuters back it up? It talks about deals that have been made. Nothing about Trump 'begging'.

    Also, you don't have FACTS in the OP. You have unsubstantiated rumors from an anonymous source.

    Al Jazeera also fails to back up the claims of your anonymous sources cited in the OP

    I see no mention of 'down on his knees begging' in either aljazeera or reuters articles....so rawstory (and you) are bullshit....
    Put blame where it belongs
    ATF decided it could not regulate bump stocks during the Obama administration.
    It that time," the NRA wrote in a statement. "The NRA believes that devices designed to allow semiautomatic rifles to function like fully-automatic rifles should be subject to additional regulations."
    The ATF and Obama admin. ignored the NRA recommendations.
