Just want to know your reactions to President Trump’s speech at Davos.
What did you think of his message, the content, the delivery and the reception?
I am asking this from the people directly, free from the media and their biased reporting...
Watch the video of his speech and give your honest assessment. It is only 20 minutes.
You know, we get so much of Trump via Twitter, there is no need to read or watch any news about it - as a result, there are not many of us who have any desire to listen to him talk, anymore. Especially when he is addressing a crowd that he is trying to impress.
All potus's are guilty of talking to the crowd - and he is no different. Its what he does when he holds his 'rallies' to keep you all twitterpated with him. I'm not surprised you were so impressed - Trump talked more coherently and sounded more presidential? That is something to celebrate if you are a T-fan, I suppose. LoL!
I was just getting ready to post something similar. Trump reading prepared remarks is one thing. We find out what he really thinks via Twitter and his off-the-cuff remarks, which frequently contradict his prepared remarks. He is quite capable of delivering a speech and looking and sounding presidential. He is also prone to unraveling what progress he makes in that regard with one or two tweets or a spontaneous verbal outburst.
That is what you and the media choose to focus on... Trump is trump and the media will twist every little thing he said or tweet into a negative.
He gave a good speech so why can’t people just admit it and let it go. Why do people need to attack it as if it means nothing just because a speech writer wrote it?
I created this forum so people can make the judgement for themselves instead of letting the media spin it.
The information you get about Trump is distorted. It is sad that in this modern day, we have people relying on other people to tell them what to think or believe...
Can you use your own judgement for once?
"The information you get about Trump is distorted. It is sad that in this modern day, we have people relying on other people to tell them what to think or believe...

What?! Information people get about Trump is distorted? Oh please. Isn't that why POTUS relies so heavily on Twitter and social media, according to... his own staff (and former staff)... so he can get his own message out there without the so-called fake news interfering?
Here's the thing, Jack. I have watched many Trump speeches from beginning to end. His prepared speeches are fine. I'm not criticizing them. All I'm saying is, based on his past behavior, what is the point of believing what he says in a prepared speech? He frequently contradicts himself, so why should we suddenly take him at his word? That IS using my own judgment. Surely, you have met people who have lied to you over and over again. Do you continue to believe them? If not, why do you continue to believe Trump?
Ditto what PrettyPanther said. You can even take a guess at which tweets POTUS wrote, and which ones he had scheduled on his behalf. The ones that sound diplomatic and professional, which don't involve calling someone "Crying," "crooked," etc., and don't end with "enjoy" or "sad!" .... probably not by POTUS.
Like I've said at least a hundred times over the past year - WE CAN READ TRUMP'S TWEETS FOR OURSELVES. Stop accusing us of ridiculous things like needing to have a left-leaning news source interpret a Trump tweet for us.
Really. When you are capable of thinking for yourself, you can do that without needing commentary from Fox News or Fox & Friends, etc.
Here's a quote from after Trump's speech at Davos:
https://www.thelocal.ch/20180127/boos-a … p-in-davos
"Trump went off-script in a brief question-and-answer exchange with World Economic Forum host Klaus Schwab. "As a businessman I was always treated really well by the press... it wasn't until I became a politician that I realised how nasty, how mean, how vicious and how fake the press can be," Trump said."
So, what does that tell us?
Trump has been a YUGE fan of Fox for years - watching it and following it like all of you do - its the reason WHY he became a politician, that is exactly what he spouts: their messages from the past couple of decades.
And NOW since media isn't stroking money from him in a 'business' way now that he is a politician - he can see the great big spotlight on slanted & manipulated 'lefty' or 'progressive' news sources; but is INCAPABLE of seeing the manipulation within his own 'right' news sources.
They are just as full of CRAP - but none of you, especially Trump - can see that. You all seriously need to get 'the deep state' and what they are actually about, into perspective; and STOP supporting the freakin uniparty that intentionally keeps us divided & fighting!
His statement is absolutely correct. He did not go off script as you say. He spoke from the heart and the truth.
You can do the research yourself. Trump has not changed over his long career...
He was the darling of the press and of hollywood and of Democrat politicians...when he was a businessman donating to the candidates...
It was only after he announced his candidacy that all these attacks started and they were nasty...
How would you like being called a racist day in day out?
His press coverage is 90% negative. Probably only Fox News gave him the positive coverage.
So, who is biased? Don’t tell me 90% of the press are all saints and they report accurately the news...
They are all liberals who think alike...”group think” is the most dangerous bias.
For you to even being this up tells me how you have been corrupted by the media.
So he gives a good speech at Davos, that is positive and upbeat...it is because he had good speech writers...they said the same about Reagan by the way. Reagan wrote many of his own speeches.
The reason Trump is a winner is because he challenges the media and calls them out. No Republican in the past have done so except for Reagan. I am convinced if any of the other GOP candidates had won the primary...they would have been attacked viciously like Romney was attacked in 2012. They could hot have won against such bias.
It was wonderful, he was strong yet made it clear America respects its allies. I ws very pleased and proud.
He sure sounded as a strong leader, in control of his faculties...
How can the media spin this?
I was quite impressed - while there was some excessive use of "my", "I" and "My administration" it wasn't anywhere near what we've heard in the past. He was far more "presidential" than any other speech I've watched, including the short question and answer session.
I wasn't sure that the constant talk of how America has improved (since "my" election ) would go over, considering the place and time, but he did pull it together with constant exhortations to join us. A couple of things that stood out;
Trump is there to improve America, not babysit the world at our expense. As ALL leaders should be, for their own countries. It's great to work with other nations to the mutual benefit of all, but leaders are first responsible for their own countries, not the world in general - it's not their responsibility to drag the rest of the world, kicking and screaming, into the 21st century of prosperity.
And second, that he is a cheerleader for America - something that we haven't seen for quite a while. Past presidents were mostly rather neutral or downright negative in that respect. That was a refreshing change from what we've been hearing for some time.
Maybe the information you just got from Trump in that speech is the distortion because it was prepared by someone else to help him sound like someone he is not. That's the judgment we've all come to and that you are denying.
you are deluding yourself. you want Trump to be the monster so you can feel good about yourself. the problem is, he is not that person. he is trying to help america to be strong again... you are not happy about it. You have to wonder why? what is this guilt that you feel?
Which presidential speech in the last 50 years do you believe was prepared by the president?
Honestly, Jack, you're so far down the rabbit hole, it's not even worth it to argue with you. You have all these preconceived notions about what you think we want, but you can't even hear what we're saying.
I am too clear about this. If you followed my comments and some of my articles on this topic, I did not vote for Trump. I however, chose to defend him when I saw what the media was doing to demonize him. You and the rest of the people "anti Trump" fell for the media's lies and spins...
They have an agenda and it is not to protect the common folks.
Trump has done a tremendous job turning this country around. If is helping all of us, including you probably. My IRA has increased over 20% this past year. It has done much better than the years of Obama. More over, jobs and manufacturing is coming back... remember the ones Obama claimed they will never come back... who are you going to believe?
Valeant, what did you find displeasing in regards to the speech?

We are constantly being bombarded by breaking news from both sides of the political spectrum. It's not just a matter of presenting the news, but it's also the talking heads that follow the breaking news events. They are presented as experts, when in reality, they don't have any more of a clue...

Cable news sites like CNN need to be left-out of the presidential campaigns. CNN false news was caught for their sneaky-editing of what Donald Trump actually said to make it sound as if he was saying something he did not say. That is political media corruption in favor of the Democratic...
