Jibon to Tangerine TrumpelThinSkin: “We want to help you in terms of strengthening the US economy.”
Say what?
Throw in USD10-20 billion to “help strenghten” a USD19 TRILLION economy? It’s like spending a couple thousand bucks to try to enhance the value of an almost two million dollar home !
Have a sense of scale lah, Jibon advisors. 
Be real lah for once. The whole world is watching . . . and they don’t watch TV¾.
The Malaysian GDP of USD310 billion is 1/61 of the US GDP . . . 1/9 of California’s Gross State Product . . . 1/3 of LA’s Gross Regional Product. In other words, we are minnows in the US scale of things.
Understand SCALE before you talk crap in front of a world audience.
Jibon advisors . . . a quick snapshot of the sense of scale you fools should try to understand (if that is at all possible) . . .
Last year, Americans spent over USD400 billion on fast food . . . USD425 billion on prescription drugs . . . USD600 billion on 17 million motor vehicles . . . USD56 billion to attend sporting events . . . USD33 billion on sports equipment . . . USD19 billion on gym memberships . . . USD15 billion on sex toys . . . USD30 billion on shoes . . . USD16 billion on plastic surgery . . . USD14 billion on blue jeans . . . USD74 billion on lottery tickets . . . USD30 billion on video games . . . USD42 billion on coffee . . . and USD70 billion on their pets.
So fools . . . next time you go visit the President of a 19 TRILLION dollar economy, you don’t offer “value propositions” to “help strenghten their economy.” And you don’t offer to fight others to “enhance the security” of a Superpower. And you don’t throw in a few billion dollars of OUR hard earned EPF money “to support your infrastructure redevelopment in the United States” when the cost of upgrading the US infrastructure is USD5 TRILLION over the next decade. And don’t talk as if a couple extra billion dollars will prop up a stock exchange with a market capitalization of USD22 TRILLION.
Again . . . have a sense of SCALE lah you arrogant fools.
You make Jibon look stupider than he already is. And what’s with the piles of files and notes in front of Jibon on the table? Look at TrumpelThinSkin . . . nothing. Look at VP Pence . . . small piece of paper. Look at Secretary Tillerson . . . nothing.
Presidents and PMs bring national dignity and personal charm to such photo op meetings . . . not piles of files like some delinquent college kid with flunking grades facing a stern prof with arms crossed in a last chance make-up exam.
All these make ALL Malaysians look stupid. That . . . I don’t like.
Now . . .
Be like others lah.
When you go visit the President of a 19 TRILLION dollar economy, you don’t offer things. You ASK for things. 
Things like requesting the TrumpelThinSkin Administration to persuade US federal pension funds to allocate more of their investments to our shores . . . like addressing a yawning USD25 billion trade gap in our favor by working with the TrumpelThinSkin Administration to make American goods and services more attractive to us . . . or to configure “guns for commodities” deals (akin to the old Russian Su-30MKM – Palm Oil Deal) beneficial to both countries . . . and requesting almost-free military firepower under the US Excess Defence Articles (EDA) program that has immensely benefited US allies such as Australia, Egypt, Britain, Turkey and Taiwan. 
In other words, you don’t travel thousands of miles to give money to the world’s largest economy and to offer to fight others for the security of the world’s foremost Superpower . . . and get nothing in return beyond photo ops and comforting words from TrumpelThinSkin.

Nawawi Ahmad Why Prime Minister Najib Razak’s official visit to USA defies all odds:

Within 2 days (although PM Najib arrived on 11 Sep, it was not an official event day), the followings are to be noted:
1. It is unheard of in USA history of the State Department and National Security Council (NSC) giving clearance for a US President to meet with a foreign head of state that is directly named in DOJ’s largest ever money laundering investigation.
2. Not only was Najib Razak invited by the US President, his delegation was also received by an expanded list of the most senior ranking officials of President Trump’s administration including:
– Secretary of State, Tillerson
– Secretary of Defence, Mattis
– National Security Advisor, McMaster
– National Economic Advisor, Cohen
– Senior Advisor, Kushner
– and the list goes on
– there were more than 10 Ministerial Level persons
3. The one-on-one meeting was close to an hour instead of the usual 15m.
4. The President sent Prime Minister Najib Razak all the way to his vehicle on departure. By protocol, the President sends off and stops at the main lobby.
5. There was both live statements made to the Media by both leaders which were completely in sync in front of all their respective cabinet members and in additional a very long joint statement (longer than ordinary) worked on by the State Department and Foreign Affairs Ministry and issue by both Governments. The decision not to make a joint statement in the Oval Office was one decided by both leaders as they wanted to show strength that both countries’ senior cabinet members were behind such decisions and statements and its about their governments behind the decisions of their leaders. 
6. The Whitehouse very swiftly produced a special video for PM Najib visit attached to President Trump’s tweet of his appreciation shortly after PM Najib left the Whitehouse.
7. PM Najib on 13 Sept went to the Senate Building and met with key Foreign Relation Committee Senators led by Cory Gardner whom is the Chairman of Senate Committee on Asia. He is also the Chairman of the Senate Republican Campaign Committee and is an important up and coming power player. Also Chairman of National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC). NRSC helps elect republicans primarily through fund raising.
– Excellent leg work was done prior to the meeting as 1MDB was not brought up by the bipartisan senate committee including both Democrats and Republicans. 
8. PM Najib also had good meetings with various think tanks and business councils.
9. PM Najib is leaving USA 13 Sep feeling like his November 2016 Beijing visit hosted by President Xi. It was an extremely successful visit, unheard of even by USA standards and President Trump is now due to visit Malaysia in November 2017 in which he is expected to bring major investments by Boeing in Malaysia with the potential shift of Boeing Southeast Asia HQ and production facilities to Malaysia in the tune of USD5b as part of the USD10b program.
10. He arrives in London on the way back to Malaysia to be received by PM Theresa May of UK signalling another major endorsement.
11. President Xi is also schedule for a visit to Malaysia in November 2017 with major goodies.
While Singapore is still struggling to mend fences with China, PM Najib’s master stroke has not only brought it best friend status with President Xi and China, he has also successfully manoeuvred not only acceptance from the USA but support from President Trump, his cabinet, and all the way to the bipartisan senate foreign relations Committee. 
Cat with 9 lives? 
Election in sight for December 2017?

steadyaku47 comment : When Kennedy said : I am the man who accompanied
Jacqueline Kennedy to Paris”….it was a tongue in cheek comment that was appreciated by all. What if Najib said “I am the man who accompanied Rosmah Mansor to Washington”  camna agak reaction orang? Pity?
