    Fact is, the fat cheeto couldn't do any of what either President Obama or Pooting can.

    Remember, fat trump couldn't even keep up with world leaders when they took a leisurely stroll of 700 yards. That waddling mass of orange bread dough is an embarrassment to the US.

    But...

    I thought everyone on the Left was upset because of all the time Trump spends on the golf course?

    The picture I posted was merely to point out that, if Trump and Putin play golf, it wouldn't be the first president Putin has played golf with

    Trump Says Everything's Coming in 'Two Weeks'

    President Donald Trump has a plan. It’ll be ready in two weeks.

    From overhauling the tax code to releasing an infrastructure package to making decisions on Nafta and the Paris climate agreement, Trump has a common refrain: A big announcement is coming in just “two weeks.” It rarely does.

    On Feb. 9, Trump boasted that his administration was “way ahead of schedule” on a tax overhaul.

    “We’re going to be announcing something I would say over the next two or three weeks that will be phenomenal in terms of tax and developing our aviation infrastructure,” Trump said while meeting with airline executives.

    Eleven weeks elapsed before the White House released a one-page outline of the tax plan.

    In an April 29 interview on “CBS This Morning” Trump said of his promised $1 trillion infrastructure construction program: “We’ve got the plan largely completed and we’ll be filing over the next two or three weeks -- maybe sooner,” Trump said.

    No legislation has been filed. The White House has yet to outline the plan, beyond broad principles described in Trump’s proposed budget.

    Self-Imposed Deadlines
    Trump’s habit of self-imposing -- then missing -- two-week deadlines for major announcements has become a staple of his administration as it’s struggled to amass policy wins. The president has used two-week timelines to sidestep questions from reporters or brag to CEOs at the White House. But his pronouncements have also flummoxed investors, Congress and occasionally even members of his staff.

    The president’s inability to meet his own deadlines highlights his struggle adjusting to the pace of Washington. It also foreshadows the trouble that lies ahead as his administration faces a series of hard deadlines in Congress over the next few months.

    “The president and his team work around the clock to fulfill the promises he has made to the American people,” White House spokeswoman Lindsay Walters said in a statement listing some of Trump’s accomplishments as president. “There is no question that this administration has been turning the president’s promises into policy at a remarkable rate.”

    It’s been 15 weeks since Trump promised an aviation infrastructure proposal in two weeks. Trump sent a set of ”principles” for overhauling the U.S. air-traffic control system to Congress on Monday.

    Paris Deal
    At an April 29 rally, Trump drew applause when he promised an imminent announcement on whether he’d keep the U.S. in a landmark global climate agreement.

    “And I’ll be making a big decision on the Paris accord over the next two weeks,” Trump said in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

    A month later, Trump was still weighing his decision. Top advisers said his thoughts continued to evolve. Trump announced his decision to pull the U.S. out of the agreement on June 1.

    Trump’s penchant for casually announcing short deadlines without a plan to make good on them underscores his improvisational approach to the presidency, said Barbara Perry, a presidential historian at the University of Virginia’s Miller Center of Public Affairs. Skills the one-time reality television star honed in New York’s impulse-driven media and real-estate circles haven’t translated well in the halls of Washington, Perry said.

    “For someone who bills himself as the master of the art of the deal, well, where’s the art and where’s the deal?” she said. “Trump continues to be in campaign mode with a lot of promises that he’s not fulfilling.”
