One has to wonder if this hasn't always been his strategy

It's brilliant.

This has the potential to be a big problem if it becomes a habit with any US business who dares blink the wrong way at Trump. Once again "unprecedented.

So what did Trump do to piss China off? I remember reading about how they said something along the lines of "War with the US is becoming more of a reality" or something.

China tells Donald Trump, USA to lift its game

Quote:

The Global Times, a provocative but state-sanctioned Chinese newspaper, countered that “unless Washington plans to wage a large-scale war in the South China Sea, any other approaches to prevent Chinese access to the islands will be foolish”.

“Tillerson had better bone up on nuclear power strategies if he wants to force a big nuclear power to withdraw from its own territories,” the unbylined opinion piece suggested.

“If Trump’s diplomatic team shapes future Sino-US ties as it is doing now, the two sides had better prepare for a military clash.”

China says they don't want to either because we all have a lot to lose from it. I hope Trump doesn't see how far he can push them.

Thing that worries me about Trump is if his narcissism clouds his judgement and he decides he's so brilliant he couldn't possibly lose a war things could get real ugly.

What did Trump do now? Trump got.....

DENIED

Unanimous decision by the 3 judges. I skimmed over the decision and they make some rock solid arguments, citing points over and over again where the Constitution supercedes a President's power to basically do whatever he wants.

And they list dozens of case law and precedent - which will be difficult for Trump's lawyers since what Trump's trying to do is...... wait for it......

Unprecedented.

Got a good source for the decision/arguments? I started reading something on NPR last night and didn't end up finishing it for whatever reason and I'm still pretty unsure of how his order was unconstitutional (even though I vehemently disagree with it).

I don't think his order violates the constitution either. After all, Obama managed to justify a ban of his own for "security" reasons half a decade ago. Regardless of how justified Obama made it seem back then, why weren't the courts up in arms about it?

Rather long but the conclusions toward the end are really strong.
