Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
What is the point of this section? Anything Trump says is subject to immediate reversal; there is no hope of keeping up.

Two days ago, Obamacare was to be eliminated. Today, not so much--the GOP big shots don't want that fight in an election season. Then there were going to be further sanctions on NK, but no, never mind. Last week, funding for the Special Olympics was to be cut, but subsequently it was determined that was not popular so reverse that plan.

Now, the border with Mexico is to be completely closed. But some wise guy has pointed out that if that happened, US car factories would shutter in a week due to an interrupted supply stream.

Plus, no avocados. And worse still, no Corona or Pacifico beer.

I take it that this section was create to prevent comments about Trump from infesting the other sections.

Pacifico is also tasteless piss. But that's what you drink on the Baja Peninsula, or when trying to recreate your holiday atmosphere at the local Mexican restaurant.

Spanish beer is the same : fine as long as it's very hot and it's very cold (if you follow). But a complete waste of time out of context.
