    in the context of the speech he actually said the opposite of what you are claiming.

    I know that Americans are struggling right now with what we've witnessed over the past week. First, the shootings in Minnesota and Baton Rouge, the protests. Then the targeting of police by the shooter here, an act not just of demented violence, but of racial hatred.

    All of it has left us wounded and angry and hurt. This is — the deepest faultlines of our democracy have suddenly been exposed, perhaps even widened. And although we know that such divisions are not new, though they've surely been worse in even the recent past, that offers us little comfort.

    Faced with this violence, we wonder if the divides of race in America can ever be bridged. We wonder if an African-American community that feels unfairly targeted by police and police departments that feel unfairly maligned for doing their jobs, can ever understand each other's experience.

    We turn on the TV or surf the internet, and we can watch positions harden and lines drawn and people retreat to their respective corners, and politicians calculate how to grab attention or avoid the fallout. We see all this, and it's hard not to think sometimes that the center won't hold and that things might get worse.

    I understand. I understand how Americans are feeling. But Dallas, I'm here to say we must reject such despair. I'm here to insist that we are not as divided as we seem. And I know that because I know America. I know how far we've come against impossible odds

    literally what the f**k are you talking about

    This has done the rounds on Social Media a fair bit.

    In retaliation, demonstrators actually picketed this wanker's NY apartment with megaphones etc.

    Well I'm not sure many people here who leaned towards Clinton ever thought very much of those kinds of celebrities. I'd say a dipshit like Lena Dunham gets bashed more by the 4C left than anyone else!

    The South Park 2008 election covers pretty well the kind of chicken little shit that goes on with the fringe crazies. Because of the liberal leaning nature of Hollywood, I would guess pro democrat crazies get a larger platform for this.

    Should that be his election slogan in 2020?

    Trump Pence 2020 , "We're not that bad"

    That's a rote recital of a alt-right talking point.

    I know you're a hard core Trump supporter, but even for you that's seems incredibly biased

    US-China trade talks produced a commitment by Beijing to “significantly increase” its purchases of American goods and services, according to a joint statement Saturday from the rival economic powers trying to lower trade tensions.

    They also agreed on “meaningful increases” in US exports of agriculture and energy products and greater efforts to increase trade in manufactured goods and services.

    The statement, however, provided no dollar amounts on how much China might boost its purchases of American products.



    The statement also was silent on whether the talks had made progress in easing the trade stand-off between the world’s two biggest economies. Washington and Beijing have threatened to impose billions of dollars in punitive tariffs on each other.

    The statement said they did agree on the need for “effective measures” to reduce America’s trade deficit, and to strengthen co-operation on protecting intellectual property. The statement said the US would send a team to China to work out further details.
