Simplifying the cake idiocy a little more...

If a baker refuses to make a cake for a gay wedding, they are refusing because they don't like the customer. They would be perfectly within their rights to refuse a specific design that offended them...just as long as they are willing to make a cake they'd make for anyone else for that couple.

It's the same with the Trump cake. As long as they'd refuse to make one for anyone - it isn't discrimination.

It might almost be seen as having one's cake and eating it.

I agree, but unfortunately not everyone does, nor does the government backed organizations.

For refusing to make the same-sex wedding cake, he was ordered by the state’s Civil Rights Commission to undergo “re-education” training, change his store policies and file quarterly “compliance” reports for two years.

Yeah it is without doubt. Trump's not even the real topic, but it is what it is. You can't be that surprised.

admins - please rename the thread "CAKE CORNER"
Let U be the set of all united sets, K be the set of the kids and D be the set of things divided.
Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D

This is a subject worthy of discussion THAT HAS ABSOLUTELY ZERO TO DO WITH TRUMP IN ANY WAY!!

Okay I'll try and get this thread back on track.

Trump appears to believe that loud threats can weaken his opponent so that any ensuing diplomatic dialogue will be a cakewalk for him. By pursuing this kind of bellicose diplomacy he is attempting to have his cake and eat it. This won't be a piece of cake for him as Kim is as mad as he is and so a more subtle approach is required. He can take some crumbs of comfort from the likelihood that Kim is issuing empty threats. We could see Kim back down, which will be the icing on the cake for Trump.
