If she is that smart maybe she could be an industrialist. Or an inventor. Creating tens of thousands of jobs or even hundreds of thousands of jobs. But what she is in. A dime a dozen. With massive political implications which can be questionable. And she is probably smarter then (sic) me.
Clearly this is not a very high hurdle....

President Donald Trump demanded Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-N.Y.) drop all New York State lawsuits against him prior to a meeting between the two on Thursday to discuss the suspension of travel programs that would benefit immigrants, along with other New Yorkers.

“He must understand that National Security far exceeds politics,” Trump said a week after the Department of Homeland Security announced it was suspending New York residents from participating in Trusted Traveler Programs such as Global Entry that make it easier to return to the U.S. from foreign trips. The move was in response to New York passing the “Green Light Law,” which allows undocumented immigrants to obtain drivers licenses and participate in the TTP.

Trump implied that the suspension could be lifted with a quid-pro-quo:

“New York must stop all of its unnecessary lawsuits & harassment, start cleaning itself up, and lower taxes,” he tweeted.

Drop lawsuits? Another abuse of Power! Trump* asking for another quid pro quo. What do you think?
Doesnt Trump know the AG files the lawsuits, not Cuomo?
Trump has been president for over three years and still knows less about government than a third grader.
He probably thinks that the AG will do whatever Cuomo asks, like Barr does for him.
Trump thinks governors are mini-dictators. Like himself.

How is it abusing the power of his office when his office has no power to abuse in this situation? IOW, nothing there.

Why wouldn't he do that? It worked well for him when he did his Ukraine phone call, so why wouldn't it work again?

Especially when both Trump and his supporters are saying that Trump can never be impeached again.
As most non-Gump people know - there is no limit on how many times a president can be impeached.
When Trump stops committing crimes, abusing power, and stealing from the public purse, the lawsuits and investigations will end. As long as he keeps breaking the law, honest people will go after him for it.

The problem is that Trump has been been called to any account for his crimes, his frauds, his abuse of women, or bribery or his corruption.

At some point these never ending investigations into the president of the United States become subversive and seditious and a hindrance to Americas goals and the American peoples desires....by keeping Trump from giving his full attention to issues the people care about is nothing short of treason.....

Maybe during a virus out break isn’t the best time for a state to get butt hurt over a few precautions. Of course if the Corona virus hits NY they will surely blame Trump for it.

And yes, giving illegals licenses is fucking retarded.
Couldn't happen to a better state.

Dear Corona Virus:

I humbly request that when you finish your work in New York, that you go to California.

Yours truly, JGalt.

I have been weaned by the inner city mentality. The lowest bar wins in blue cities.

Do you mean like the 20+ investigations of the Clintons? Or the 7 Benghazi investigations? Did you complain about endless investigations of the Obama Administration?

Bill Clinton enduring 6 1/2 years of a special prosecutor's investigation. Did you complain that this was distracting Bill from his official duties?

Yes, by all means don't give them licenses so that they drive without a license or insurance. That'll work well for everyone. Especially if they're involved in an accident.
How about we just deport them when they are driving without a license or insurance? I already have to pay uninsured motorist insurance in case I’m hit by some worthless ass illegal without it. The best outcome possible when that happens is deporting him/her and their entire fucking family back to where they belong. I already paid for the accident.

Funny. Obviously you didn't read the OP very carefully. Hint: quid pro quo.
You seem to not understand what a quid pro quo is.

Here’s a hint. It’s every exchange of goods and services you do every single day. When you stumble your drunk indian ass into the liquor store to get your next 40 you bring cash, the liquor store has the 40. You make an exchange of your cash for the 40.

Quid pro quo.

Why would a state sue him personally for doing his job as the nations leader? Maybe you should start there.

Obama wasn't abusing his power, or lining his own pockets at every opportunity. He wasn't cozying up to dictators and doing their bidding.

The Clinton had the media behind them because they hadn't done anything. Hell Trump has had 5 Clinton investigations since he took office: The Huber Investigation - no violations of any kind found; The State Department Investigation under Mike Pompeo - nothing found; The Senate Investigation led by Chuck Grassley, and the IG's report. These are all Republican investigations.

Every time a Clinton sneezes, Republicans accuse them of something illegal, and investigate it. Most of these investigation were to confirm rumours that Republicans made up. Like Seth Rich.

You remind me of a cartoon character who was always asking "which way did he go? which way did he go george?" I think the mueller debacle has damaged you permanently.
