Trump cancels Colombia trip

Source: Politico

It's the second time he has canceled plans to visit the South American country.

President Donald Trump is scrapping a planned post-election trip to Colombia — the second time he has canceled plans to visit the South American country.

The president was slated to visit Colombia on Dec. 2 and 3 on a post-election travel blitz that will take him on separate trips to Paris and to Argentina, which is hosting the G-20 conference. But White House travel aides sent word in an internal email Friday that the president’s “planned travel to Bogota, Colombia 2-3 December has been canceled.”

The same officials said in the note that they were uncertain how the cancellation would affect Trump’s travel plans to Buenos Aires for the G-20 conference, which is scheduled for the weekend prior to his intended Colombia trip.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment about the president’s travel plans.

2. Secret Service probably pulled the plug.

There aren't enough agents to protect such a vile, putrid, hate-spewing asshole from the masses he's called rapists and disease ridden invaders.

4. Well, since he's sealing our borders

And ending all contact with other countries, what's the point?
