    Those kids will certainly have something to talk about in school Monday. Tip of the hat to Trump for this one.

    Giving Trump credit where credit is due, it was a very nice gesture. You think he would have the done the same if the Little League team was from the Rio Grande Valley in Texas, and included the children of undocumented aliens or maybe even included kids without documentation themselves?

    Note I didn't make my comment until negative posts started coming in. I was impressed that the first couple of posters were actually complementary of Trump but the usual suspects are never going to accept anything Trump does as good.

    See post 6,7 & 8. My post was #9 in response to the thread starting to take an anti Trump turn at post #6. Face it some folks just can't give the man props without tearing him down.

    He was heading to NO for a campaign event. Someone with better publicity savvy than him seized an opportunity for a heart-warming gesture. You can't buy that kind of photo op.

    Yes, and we know that all presidents have these people that look for good gestures that are also good publicity.

    Cool. This definitely makes up for letting our Kurdish allies get slaughtered.

    Yes, they do. Still, Trump's on a different level. I don't think he's capable of an independent thoughtful, unselfish gesture. He's not even good at faking sincerity, which most of your successful sociopaths are.
