  • Trump and the NHS

    So apparently the British MSM has manufactured another crisis to rile up people about regarding Trump.

    From what I gather it went something like this:

    Trump is talking about negotiating trade deals with the UK

    Reporters ask if the NHS is on the table

    Trump replies, "everything is on the table in negotiation"

    EXTRA EXTRA!! TRUMP WANTS TO KILL NHS!!!!

    (NHS is the British Socialized Health system that is in trouble because of lack of funding and has been in their news a lot lately)

    I am sure if they had asked Trump if the Queen's favorite scones were on the table he would have answered the same.

    He was just making a point about in a business negotiation everything is up for discussion. He has no plans regarding the NHS or the Queen's scones.

      Queen Elizabeth’s Drop Scones Recipe

      Prep time: 10 minutes
      Cook time: 15 minutes
      Yield: Makes about 16 American-sized pancakes.

      Ingredients

      3 cups (400 g) all-purpose flour
      2 teaspoons baking soda*
      3 teaspoons cream of tartar*
      1/4 teaspoon salt**
      2 eggs
      1/4 cup of superfine sugar, or a heaping 1/4 cup white, granulated sugar
      1 1/2 cup (350 ml) of whole milk (and maybe a little more if needed)
      2 tablespoons butter, melted

      *If you don't have cream of tartar, substitute the 2 teaspoons of baking soda and the 3 teaspoons of cream of tartar with 5 teaspoons of baking powder (make sure your baking powder is less than 6 months old or it may be flat and unable to provide leavening).

      **If using salted butter, skip the added salt.

        What does Trump have against scones?
        Some may call me foolish, and some may call me odd
        But I'd rather be a fool in the eyes of man
        Than a fool in the eyes of God

                  I only eat blueberry scones. If they're not too dry.



                  and bacon.

                    There is much debate around that.

                        I'm in the 95-100% category. And I also pronounce Celts correctly, too.

                            In fairness, this wasn't out of the blue - US ambassador to the UK, Woody Johnson, told the BBC's Marr programme that the United States would seek business access to the NHS as part of trade negotiations after Brexit.

                            It was in light of this and known US business interest in the health service that the question was asked to begin with

                              LOL. Just hop on a plane.

                              I think the deal is that NHS is in trouble and they have been talking about privatizing it, etc. So when someone mentioned it to Trump, and he just said "everything is on the table" - he had no idea what a trap he just fell into. So the MSM took his comment and the fears of the UK people and ran with it, manufacturing a crisis where there was none.

                              About the only thing Trump might want is to set up trade between US Drug and Medical companies and the NHS, to supply equipment or drugs to them. But that would be up to the NHS to work out. He has no way to force it upon the UK that I know of, or would even have any reason to.

                              And reading of the hellish treatment the UK citizens get from the NHS, I wonder why they are defending it so much. This is the same system that refused to let parents take that sick infant to Italy or the USA for treatment and let him die instead.
