  1. Trump better be in prison for all he has done.

  2. He will be forgotten and people will move on to the next conman in line. The uneducated and willfully ignorant are fickle and easily swayed.

    • @russian bot Look into the election interference executive order Trump signed in 2018. Trump laid a trap for the deep state.

    • @nodaklojack absolutely. You’re the first person that has mentioned it. I have 3 degrees and I can read and write ancient greek and some latin. My dad was a pastor and professor at a couple of universities and seminaries. I was taught at home and had the advantage of living in an environment where reading was the only form of entertainment and my education included translating and comparing modern texts of the bible with older translations. Please feel free to send a link.

    • @russian bot well that’s a lot of assumptions. I’m not a democrat or a republican. Go away comrade.

    • @J SMARTIN it’s a fact 🙂 voting Fraud explains everything –> pay attention to Pennsylvania.

    • @russian bot keep telling yourself that come 20 Jan 21…and choke on it!!

  3. It won’t save him. Legal issues are coming.

  4. Trump’s collecting money from his supporters going to use it to pay off that four hundred and some million that he owes

  5. As Michael Steel tweeted, “SDNY, he is all yours”. And take Dejoy and Barr too.

    • @russian bot 😄😄😄😁😉🇺🇸

    • @russian bot Where is the fraud? Show me. All of the lawsuits that Trump filed showed no evidence of fraud and was dismissed by the courts. Even Rudy claimed that there was no fraud in court when point blank asked about it by the judge. Show me the fraud.

    • @Tony 1955 All of that you’re saying is coming from the Fake News Media 🙂 nothing is truth to it.

    • Take Barr, Dejoy, Kaleigh and for sure Graham for his trying to intimidate his own Republican Party Officials.
      The Republican Party is pathetic!

    • @gdyl091358 don’t worry, CNN-Elect Biden will never be a president 🙂

  6. Trump will be busy fighting off lawsuits , prison and keeping his family out of jeopardy.

  7. The only reason tRump hasn’t conceded is cause he still exploiting money from his followers.

    Trump must face consequences for his actions for the first time in his life

    Georgia, vote Blue in 21 and 22!!!
    Reject the sycophants, trolls, trools and their boor in 24!!!!

  10. Justice is demanded for all the pain he put the United states through

  11. We need to start calling the Republican party the White Nationalist party from now on.

    • Yesssss 🤣👏

    • Good title! No doubt they’ll use it! Maybe then the minority Republicans of color will see just where they truly stand with their party, if that’ll make a difference…I doubt it! They’ll continue to drink the kool-aid!

    • @TAMMY WALLACE I mean GOP LITERALLY stands for “grand old party” bring things back to the good old days where every white had a black to work their fields

  12. People need to be strong and diligent over the next 4 years and beyond, this is just the beginning.

    Four years of the trump brainwash, con job. Of course they’re not going anywhere.

  14. If Trump wants to run for President again, he’d better take up residency in the state with the most lenient work-release program.

  15. Trumps pathetic distractions are just that ‘ distractions’
    People will soon forget

  16. Trump doesn’t want his children to be indicted because he knows they’ll roll over and testify against them to save themselves Trump would do that to them

  17. The lawsuits are all about having a cause he can get his followers to contribute money towards — the grift is the thing — always!

  18. This will come as comfort to black people in America. As a person who does not live in America i have become aware of the discrimination that is put on black people in America in the last 3 months and i think so have many other people in the world. I use to think it was an exaggeration but after what i have seen on media i realize now it is a very justifiable and rational claim by these people.From people all over the world , we say your children have the right to walk around without persecution from police and we respect your right to fix this injustice.

  19. I’m looking forward to trumps cases,charges,& arraignments. Hes evil& cavalier

  20. Trump’s Post-Presidency should be prison.
