    Trump …” I do not take responsibility for anything..”

  2. Everything he touches turns to 💩!

  3. I’m retired, and he’s killing my dreams

    • Mr. Smith, my sincere sympathies that your retirement must be as it’s being played out in the US. I’m retired from the service after 38 years, however I live in Canada… Open schools, weekly visits of a doctor to my private residence, restaurants & bars are open with protocols in place. even get first in line status at the public golf courses… Yes, I paid dearly for my retirement with lost brothers and sisters, a broken marriage and debilitating injuries… but I have peace of mind, I will pray for you and your country. Go in faith my friend and cling to what is right, speak against what is wrong and stand strong in having lived your life in dedication to making your country great… Again isn’t even a part of that sentence.

    • @Ron Willemsen were you live is the dream for me! Thank you sir, and God bless you !!!

    • @Henry Smith God has blessed me… He gave me you to pray for

    • VOTE IN NUMBERS TOO BIG TO RIG. 2016 saw too many Americans too busy to vote and now look. NON VOTES and 3rd party votes are votes FOR trump.

    • Giving us permanent NIGHTMARES is what this repulsive freak is doing..

  5. He won’t even pays his own bills

    • @Ian Dalziel Meanwhile you don’t have enough sense to make 30K a year in the land of opportunity where legal immigrants come here and make a fortune.

    • @Paul D -Anti-American – where do you get that from?
      Anti-dickhead, sure.
      But your invective choices are certainly amusing

      Have you ever considered discussing and debating rather than abusing and bullying?
      You might learn something about both the person you are talking to _and_ yourself…

      @Paul D lololol wow; such an incredibly erudite, intellectually sharp reply!! Impressive display of …. what’s normal for a member of the Trumpite cult.

    • He never paid any taxes

    • @jason9022 you don’t know that, you listen to hear say and CNN. He’s doing a great job, best president ever.

  6. Trump looks evil… look at his pictures.. the Antichrist has never looked worse

      @Frankie Buelna Everything Trump says or does is antithetical to Christian values. If you think anything other than that, you’re a complete moron. Also, this country was NOT founded on Judeo-Chirstian values. Pick up a history book for once, Trunpster.

    • Barnabas Collins | September 9, 2020 at 3:48 PM | Reply

      @Frankie Buelna Trump is a Christian? Trump believes in God? Can we say brainwashed supporter you are in denial bigly.

    • Serious liberal stupidity. Did you graduate from high school?

    • Barnabas Collins | September 11, 2020 at 2:49 PM | Reply

      @dan taylor Taking a photo op in front of a church holding a Bible upside down is your idea of being a Christian? Did you finish Elementary School? Another brainwashed Trump supporter or should I say a member of the Trump Cult. Clearly in denial.

  7. Although each president has had a failure or success or mistakes, there has never been one like the current POTUS. The leadership is to unite the people in one way or another, to lead the people and the country to the better way, in harmony to the world globally. But this one has never done that. He us not uniting but collecting the same corrupt minded people, all of which are like cult followers, as they are becoming loyalists to Trump, so Trump is basically not uniting but creating his own cultish people, calling to invite all the people to join the “luxurious, boating and golfing life club”… While doing nothing of his duty as the president. Compared with what Trump has done, Nixon’s Watergate seems to be a petite crime. But he lied to the people about the US soldiers in Vietnum to protect his own position. Trump has done the same, lying to the AMERICANS to let the US soldiers killed by enemies. Trump is not American leader, but he is a traitor, a corrupt leader of the organized conspiration, a leader of the cult-like violent radicals.

  8. Trump would literally encourage a Second Civil War just to stay in power…he is no president

    • @Angelique Nova How do liberals function in society?

    • @MaL: C What country do you live in?

    • @MaL: C Liberal stupidity is a strange thing. I guess you guys think CNN and MSNBC are not manipulating you?

    • Who said anything about color? CNN/MSNBC have t as taught you to call people racist if they don’t agree with yo.

    • dan taylor I live in the Southern Hemisphere, New Zealand. We are a country with 6million in population. An equivalent, to one of your many, States. Our country is very similar to Canada, although on a smaller scale. We are part of the Commonwealth.

      We have Mainstream media broadcasts, like MSNBC, CNN, CBS, ABC, World News and our local channels. And we take our news, at face value and in the context, it’s presented. If it doesn’t make sense, do the research !? And We had our lockdown, as early as March, and we have been open for business since April.

      We have been lucky, that our PM and Health Minister, followed the science data. You guys, have the best Health experts, in the world, and your President should have let them take the lead on Covid, instead of politicising it.

  9. Vote for Biden-Harris to save America.

    Oh America, “what a web you’ve weaved”!

    • Jocelyn Johnston | September 7, 2020 at 1:00 PM | Reply

      Trump doesn’t represent a single thing about the true spirit of America. Nor do his soulless, uneducated, hateful disciples. The majority of Americans find these freaks absolutely disgusting.


  12. Q:”Is that your president?”
    A:”Its a president “

  13. “All those men understood that it was their job…”
    You can stop there. That’s the difference: Trump doesn’t think it’s a job. He thinks he’s the boss. He’s never _had_ a job.

  14. Trump didn’t create the hate..it was already there, he just gave the cowards to be free with it!!!

  15. Trump only divides Americans in times of crisis.

  16. William Martibez | September 2, 2020 at 6:35 AM | Reply

    He has been tearing this country apart since day one in office. He does not work for America, Russia maybe, but certainly not America.

    Trump brings back a civil war. What Conservative mind sees any good in that. GOP today is a party of thugs and criminals.

    • Clear Eyes Discerning Heart | September 7, 2020 at 11:58 AM | Reply

      That been the party’s MO for a long time now. Just because it’s (the decline of America) now in the homes of republican supporters people are crying foul. Give it a break!

    • And American’s are the most heavily armed country in the world.
      Seems to me it would be better to vote them out if you dont like what they are doing.

  19. If Trump had been President during WW2, Europe would still be waiting for the nazis to magically go away with the summer’s heat…

  20. “Utterly freakish” is an understatement regarding his so called president.
