      @Ines Flores EXACTLY! now #45 is playing lots of Golf and “Twittering” even more…. again👿 what a loser🤦‍♂️

      Paul Ferrante : Now, he’s taken control over Twitter, while you were all looking at the riots he started. His lobbyists know how to handle him, it seems? If he cheats his way into power again, he’ll be coming for the networks next. All of MSM will be either shut down, or under State, “supervision.” Just like in Russia. And I won’t get to say, “I told you so,” because of the algorithms that work for trump, blocking all content he doesn’t like. This is how your democracy dies

    • How so exactly?

    USA on the brink of a civil war … too many poor people without healthcare … since Decades the Government has spend every Penny in the Military to export so called Democracy to other Countries … now you are not able to have peace at home

      Thank you for speaking me out. I’m a HongKonger. I moved into mainland China because of the colour revolution and I regret I haven’t moved into the mainland sooner.

      Professionals in America did say democratic system like HK ones (demand on direct election to chief executive) is an undisciplined, plebiscitary and is volatile enough to trigger endless overthrow of the government. This is the reason America is exporting this kind of democratic system world wide but themselves are using another indirect “democratic system” via electoral votes, plus donation from the rich to presidency candidates is legal, ensuring direct control by the shadow government behind the white house. 

      This is a clear scam. The world has to wake up. The “revolution” in HK is colored.

    • Dr. Gearswell | May 30, 2020 at 4:23 AM | Reply

      meanwhile, they exported all the democracy we had left and now there is no democracy in our country left.

    • StanleyKewbeb1 | May 30, 2020 at 3:40 PM | Reply

      Not even close to a civil war. One side has all the weapons, and I don’t mean rifles.

    • @Celebrate Life , The electoral college system in the USA appointed the popular vote election loser President in 2016. Most Americans did NOT vote for Trump. The USA is not a democracy, and never has been one. The USA needs a civil war.

  3. america is fallen.

    A tough time is a president that takes action against social media instead of police and civilian brutality.

    • @Craigerswuzhere Perhaps you should stop looking for what’s wrong and look for what’s right. That’s the only true path to happiness, prove ME wrong.

    • Craigerswuzhere | May 30, 2020 at 2:11 PM | Reply

      spaxxed . I am looking for the right. Sadly, there is none. Like how I said, wouldn’t it be better to just say stop the looting. That’s me looking for that right decision to be made and it’s not happening. When I tune into a coronavirus briefing looking for answers, looking for something positive, something that’s right, I am left empty handed almost every time. I’m looking for the right message, when I ask about the Tweets if any are saying stop looting and destroying our country. But I don’t get it.

      Looking for the right, sucks all the happiness out of everything when there is none.

      Getting rid of all the wrong, will help make things right.

      Done. You’re turn.

    • @Clark Kent , Many White People believe that Black Lives Matter, but Trump isn’t one of them.

    • @Craigerswuzhere I truly feel sorry for you then.

    Trump 2016: “You will be sick of winning”

    • Upper 90 true, the roots aren’t his fault. But slot of other failings are

    • @C Gibson please you do know how the Government works right ? Each Governor is in charge of their own State. SMH but lets blame Trump for everything is pathetic.

    • jtremblay100 | May 30, 2020 at 11:57 AM | Reply

      Upper 90 trump may not be directly responsible but he has not shown leadership.

    • @jtremblay100 ya ok narrow minded people are hilarious

    • “The carnage stop RIGHT HERE…and it stops RIGHT NOW” – Trump inaugural speech, Jan 2017.
      This is a bad time, to provoke so many idle hands, and minds because of the Covid-19.
      This is a bad time, to have the worst president ever.

  6. Good job protesters Hong konger with you


    • Its an intentional diversion away from the covid-19 attack on tdump,

    • Ash Roskell | May 30, 2020 at 5:39 AM | Reply

      cyber tgk : Or Trump’s Executive Order, to take control of Twitter, perhaps? If he’s still around after November, it will be the MSM next. Just like Russia

    • @Ash Roskell then it becomes the united communist state of america.

    • Ash Roskell | May 30, 2020 at 5:51 AM | Reply

      cyber tgk : That’s pretty much what he’s going for, yup. No actual, “ideology,” that can be pinned down, but who needs one, when you have a cult (half imagined by hacktivists, half real) instead? Totalitarian control ✌️

  8. we need to continue to prove this government has power only bc we grant it. we can easily take it away

    • Beers on me 💯

    • Who´s “we”? Anyway, the whole government system in the USA. has stopped working. It´s rigid, set in cement. No flexibility – no adaptation to changing circumstances. Just a load of politicians with similar views, whatever party they nominally belong to. They follow each other in and out of office, but nothing fundamental changes. There were hopes when Obama arrived. A cultured, civilised man. But he turned out a disappointment. Maybe, he just couldn´t break the cement.

    Who’d of thought when trump won the election there would be thirty million people out of work, a pandemic and riots all over the country. Do you think a higher force is trying to tell us something.

    • @Lean 2200 Trump reacted very late to covid19. Additionally, he´s come out with ridiculous supposed cures. Like the bleach – “Kills the virus in 10 minutes!”
      The knee on the victim´s neck by the policeman was a symptom of America´s rotten policing and also of the culture of violence which Trump helps to propagate. A recent example was “When the looting starts, so does the shooting.”. Irrespective of your political opinions, Trump is indefensible and you damage yourself by trying to do so.

      I saw it!! Trump is a malignant narcissist, in my opinion the worst of them all, i tried to warn people, they were just to manipulated.

    Trump in 2016: “You will be sick of winning”
    The economy down
    40,000,00 people out of work
    cities on fire
    still no plan how to stop the pandemic
    105,000 deaths so far
    a divided nation
    “Yes, people are sick of it”

    • its 45 million there were 5 million in late febuary and at least 20 million have had no unemployment pay yet apart from the stimulas monsy over 1 month ago

    • You sound like a imbecile

    • @Golden’s rule He has made both conditions worse!
      Dumb dumb, doesn’t have ANY leadership skills unless you call inciting a riot one of them?

      Mark Cross and Biden can say something racial and it’s okay you freaking hypocrite. We see the double standard will you live in. Blame Trump for everything and everything that goes wrong.

    • @Golden’s rule I didn’t say they could?

    When all of these riots subside, we will be shocked to find out that 30,000 more Americans died of covid 19.

    “A tough time in America”, indeed.

  19. This all (income inequality, broken healthcare system, age-old racial tension, social neglect) came to ahead as it was festering for a long time and is exacerbated by the pandemic and of course the incompetent leadership that further fans racial divide. This could be avoided if not for the greed of the top 1% that controlled the country for decades.

    • Patrick Doyle | May 30, 2020 at 8:53 AM | Reply

      That’s it exactly…poverty. job insecurity. Low wages, no healthcare . For millions. It’s a powder keg

    • We are a failed democracy (aka, a republic) because of 1) the electoral college, 2) plurality voting, 3) the Senate.
      This is why Trump is only a symptom, the above is the root cause. Taxation without proper representation is theft.
      Do you know what they call a “popular vote” in other countries? A vote.
      We can ignore the hole in the roof, but it will not ignore us.

    • Exactly!

    • I agree with everything I’ve read on this thread.

  20. Are these the “thugs” Dump speaks of 🤔 seems like every race to me looting, setting fire and being chaotic
