The Floors of the Forest
by Donald J. Trump
We have to take care of the floors,A lot of people don't know that Finland is a forest nation. I do like the picture of all the Finns patiently raking the obnoxious needles, like so many Zen monks cultivating it as a garden, and whisking them away to a decent burial somewhere, perhaps at sea. It's nice to see Donald in this contemplative and caring mood, anxious to make things better, though he's not well equipped for the task.
the floors of the forest; it is very
important. You look at other countries,
they do it differently and it's a whole
different story. I was with the president
of Finland and he said: "We’re a forest nation."
He called it a “forest nation.” And they spend a lot
of time on raking and cleaning and doing
things, and they don’t have any problem.
And when it is, it is a very small problem.
So I know everybody is looking at that…
to that end. And it’s going to work
out; it’s going to work out well.

Sauli Niinistö: I’m gonna tell him we all rake our forests.
Juha Sipilä: No fucking way he’ll fall for that!
Niinistö: Watch and learn. https://t.co/LyefteGvY0
