Major Topics Summarized



  • it will implode in 2017 – there is some truth to this as reserve funds run out in some instances on it.
  • it will be repealed and replaced in parts as situations permit so th ereplacement will be able to not leave gaps

Businesses Relocating policies?

  • corporations that move  out of the U.S. will pay a high bordertax for moving – trade barrier talk, this is the stick. the carrot is tax subsidies that will be shouldered by the public. stay or go, robotics will drive an increasingly disenfranchised working class. This will encourage corporations to negotiate with Trump. Those that are not satisfied will simply stay out of the U.S. In the least earnings will not come back onshore

Mexican Wall?

  • it will be built
  • it will be ultimately paid for by Mexico via trade tarrifs, or other economic means like a reimbursement

Fake News?

  •  from one reporter who asks a “Hitler” based question trump denies him ability to ask question. Calls him “Fake News”

Intelligence Agencies?

  • stops short of attacking them
  • 90 days will release a report on how to stop it
  • Reiterates the DNC was poorly prepared
  • in response to a question about his admission of Russia as the DNC hackers, Trump disparages intelligence that is leaked
  • Russia isnt only nation hacking us.all will be dealt with

Russian Ties?

  • denies ties to Russia pre election, doesnt deny if his associates were communicating with them ENDS PRESS CONFEENCE


Real time addtions and notes in italics from speech below



  • 11:15- before taking questions, Trumps spokesman addresses the Buzzfeed head on- catch words being “fake news”.
  • Implications being Trump wont take questions on the topic
  • Mike Pence takes stage at 11:17
  • Trump takes stage 11:20- starts low key and thanks the news organizations for not publishing it.- fits the style of an outsider who wants depserately to be an insider
  • Takes swipe at Intel agencies casting possibility that they were behind it. – wrong cant be true, it was never classified and public
  • 11:22- economic topics- self promoting on Car companies.- Ford would disagree with Trumps characteristic likely
  • drug company reforms touched on
  • Humility watch: more like tethered down ego
  • Superlative watch: Greatest, huge, best, incredible, massive … albeit less effusive in his speech
  • actually slightly self effacing at his high profile personality- if he does more of this, he will channel Reagan and win over intellectuals
  • Ever notice Trump has surrounded himself with a ton of marines? They are spook haters by nature and the most loyal military in coup or slander campaigns
