Who has a guarantee?

It's just a wildcard word, like most of the Deplorables' "arguments", that introduces in others confusion about what the haell it has to do with the actual matter at hand, and in the Deplorable a sense that something has been introduced that creates a new exception. The difference between the perception of the target and the Deplorable is that the target generally connects terms to what they mean and what they mean to the topic, whereas a Deplorable just needs to hear noises that seem friendly and affirming, which can mean nothing more than uttered by an ally (or just someone who's not You Guys/Them). The actual meaning and substance of the verbiage is irrelevant. The noise has been uttered so Team Deplorable gets a point--mission accomplished.

Trump Falsely Blames Decision To Cancel London Visit On Obama


Quote
President Donald Trump confirmed on Thursday night that he nixed a February trip to the United Kingdom, and blamed the cancellation on former President Barack Obama and a decision to move the United States’ London embassy.

However, the Obama administration did not make that decision — it was announced in 2008 when President George W. Bush was still in office.

Quote
    Reason I canceled my trip to London is that I am not a big fan of the Obama Administration having sold perhaps the best located and finest embassy in London for “peanuts,” only to build a new one in an off location for 1.2 billion dollars. Bad deal. Wanted me to cut ribbon-NO!

If he can do it without admitting defeat - maybe? Don't know

That notorious left-wing, liberal, fake news site, The Wall Street Journal says...

Trump Lawyer Arranged $130,000 Payment for Adult-Film Star’s Silence


Quote
A lawyer for President Donald Trump arranged a $130,000 payment to a former adult-film star a month before the 2016 election as part of an agreement that precluded her from publicly discussing an alleged sexual encounter with Mr. Trump, according to people familiar with the matter.

Michael Cohen, who spent nearly a decade as a top attorney at the Trump Organization, arranged payment to the woman, Stephanie Clifford, in October 2016 after her lawyer negotiated the nondisclosure agreement with Mr. Cohen, these people said.

Ms. Clifford, whose stage name is Stormy Daniels, has privately alleged the encounter with Mr. Trump took place after they met at a July 2006 celebrity golf tournament in Lake Tahoe, these people said. Mr. Trump married Melania Trump in 2005.

I think the perfect next move would be for Trump to order the FCC to prosecute all those reporters for on-air obscenity.

From a news item about the dossier:

Trump "testified under oath he wouldn't know Felix if he ran into him in the street," Simpson said. "That was not true."

In a 2013 deposition, Trump had distanced himself from Sater, saying, "I don't know him well at all," and "if he were sitting in the room right now, I really wouldn't know what he looked like."

"He knew him well," Simpson said, "and, in fact, continued to associate with him long after he learned of Felix's organized crime ties."

Trump Falsely Blames Decision To Cancel London Visit On Obama

The real reason he would not go to London was because of the mass protests that would have occurred and fear for his own safety.

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2018/jan/12/donald-trump-visit-to-london-called-off-amid-fears-of-mass-protests

Of course, many Brits are very concerned about the deteriorating relationship with the US and do not agree with the protests. Plus Teresa May herself invited him for a full-up State Visit. Although it was unclear if the Royal Family wanted to have anything to do with it.

There has to be and I would hope its reaching that point soon.  I mean afterall, "their" guy would be next one up.  Since Pence came from the Senate, I would have to think that is someone they would be really comfortable with.

I think there is nearly zero chance the congressional Republicans try to dump Trump prematurely. They just got the biggest tax-handout one could imagine passed. As far as they are concerned, they are winning.

When Trump does something dumb or tasteless, they do like Paul Ryan and lament how "unhelpful" it is but it's really not stopping them from getting what they want.

They will change their tune if they lose big in the Mid-Terms.  The Independents and Democrats need to get out and vote if they want any kind of change.

Mueller is the only hope in the short term. And money laundering, not collusion.

Although the number of porn stars who have signed non-disclosure agmts with Trump appears to be increasing.

Trump Denies ‘Sh*thole’ Comment, Says He’s ‘The Least Racist Person’

Quote
President Donald Trump denied Sunday that he is a racist after multiple named and unnamed people said that he called Haiti, El Salvador and other African nations “****hole countries” during a meeting Thursday.

Hmmm... I'm not sure who to believe... the guy who has a life-long history of self-serving dishonesty or the guy who doesn't?  :/
