  1. How on earth could the situation in Hong Kong possibly work out for everybody? That would be like someone in 1775 saying ” I hope the Revolutionary War works out for everyone.”
    What is wrong with Trump?

      @Maga 4eva2 Keep coming back.

    • Steven Miller is running the country and Moscow Mitch is Vice president

      @88Gibson LesPaul The answer to that is obvious. His followers are white nationalists. And living a nation that is only about 60% white, that makes them white supremacists. All he has to do to make them happy is keep (brown and black) immigrants out. And subjugate minorities already here.

  2. If the trump’s are involved, it is for sure illegal in some way.

      @Thomas Brandt you keep going on about homosexuality, find yourself a nice guy, settle down and be happy.

    • @Peoples Republic of Ninj Someone definitely needs some ninny.

      Mats K wait a minutes, I am not saying who wants democracy, democracy is a good thing, it should be earned, not by hand out. Americans is proud of its democracy, keep democracy in America. If other wanna democracy, it’s their responsibility to found out, if America makes it Americans responsibility, what happened when their lives worse than before, preparing to keep wasting trillions to help them or get blamed.

      If other governments wanna learn how democracy works, America democracy may not work for them, it’s ok for them to learn but it’s their responsibility to found out if it works for them or not. But if America forces them to accept, preparing to keep wasting trillions to help them or get blamed.

  3. The WORLD is on fire!!!

      @Eric D. I’m thinking the same. Actually, I don’t see how an eventual global war can be avoided. Putin has been surprisingly successful in destabilizing the West. Also there is social chaos in many countries the Middle East. There’s chaos in Europe, in Asia and in North and South America and the chaos is showing no signs of calming down but rather is getting worse. The US is head over heels in debt and a collapse like you mentioned would have worldwide effects.
      What can calm the world down? This is a time when serious, mature, experienced and rational statesmanship is desperately needed but instead we have a leadership vacuum. In terms of leadership, we are a barren nation. There certainly are men and women out there who could lead us, but they are wise enough not to get into the middle of this mess now. They are holding back. They’ll pick up the pieces when the dust settles. Eventually the children will turn to the parents for stability.
      We are witnessing the failure of Democracy. The idea of government of, for and by the people is a fine idea but the weakness in Democracy is the people. When they go off the deep end, so does the government.

      Yes, the world is on fire. For some reason, Evil and Darkness spread like wildfire whereas Good and Light are won only with the greatest of efforts. Where will it end?

      Like a great sea monster, the evil was present all along, hiding beneath the surface. The Trump phenomenon represents its doom. Of course the monster is getting all riled up and showing itself.

    Trump’s Scandals will last decades… Stay tuned…

      @Big Jay How he owns the courts now has Barr working for him that crook will get away with all of it 🇺🇸🇵🇷

      @silky johnson He is not like you no grade.🇺🇸🇵🇷

    • @Edward Martinez : The states will get him and NY & NJ in particular, can’t wait. Unfortunately for Trump, the DOJ will be powerless to do anything about it. Once he’s out of office Trump’s going down. And this time it won’t be on Putin.

  5. They will sell their own mother, or make a deal with demons for a dollar. They are soulless.

    • Crystal Giddens
      It took placement of a known gangster affiliated conman in the oval office, to show how corrupt they are.

    • Maharajji NKB Headstuck
      “No. Blah … blah blah, know it.”

    • Obama – the impostor President. Birth document – PROVEN forgery. Obama – before leaving office, conspired with rogue deep state, the DNC and the Hillary forces to frame and then remove President Trump from office. Serious, serious crimes committed and most on the Left are completely oblivious.

  6. Congratulations. I hope the drain is swamped, the economy is working for everybody, the office of the POTUS is served by the best people, the opioid crisis is solved, the best healthcare is available for everybody. I hope electing the failed businessman buffoon to the highest office was worth it.

  7. I knew there was a reason why he was toying with China on this tariff crap. I felt in my heart there was a personal reason for his threats. He is pure trash.

  8. Drain the swamp, t’rump said.

  9. Ultimately, Trump and his crime family’s own financial gain is what his presidency is all about. That’s what it’s always been about. What’s worse is that they don’t even hide it.

    • Wonder Wonderful | August 14, 2019 at 10:54 AM | Reply

      Who will they have to live in those condos and play in those theme park if they are allowing their people to starve and strive. These rich people don’t even know how they got rich. Sad!

    • @Thomas Brandt Real intelligent comment, fuckwad.

    • Trump keeps saying companies are coming back to the US. None are coming back. While his sons are using his Presidency to continue building overseas. He wants Americans to hire Americans, but they continue hiring immigrants. Trump is using his Presidency for him and his families benefit. That’s it.

  10. I thought tiny hands Trump is all about America first. Why aren’t they hiring American builders?

  11. And just so happens, Trump removed the tariffs on China!

  12. Uday sits just like his daddy; like he’s sitting on the toilet.

    the Trump family were bad enough when they abused the real estate market, state and federal tax laws and business ethics domestically; then they went international and became a global criminal enterprise, a global threat!
    the good news – the investigations do not cease when they leave office!

    Mitch and Trump has sold Kentucky’s and America’s soul to China and Russia. Isn’t that what Judas did to Jesus.

    Anyone else flashes to Michael Che (SNL), saying, “that’s it! I got him… Oh wait! I’m just beimg informed that it doesn’t matter anymore?! Okay, moving on…”

  16. Democracy is so outdated. Just ask a Trumpublican.

    Doesn’t Don jr. already have a full-time job as a senior advisor to the occupant of the White House.
    Is his pay going to be docked for taking time off to attend to private business?
    Please explain.

    Hey! You voted for this criminal oh wait… You gerrymandered this criminal into the WH.

    • No techically ‘We the People’ voted in Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, 3 million of US. Now I was not to crazy over Hillary, I wanted Senator Bernie Sanders, but compared to who’s in the Oval Office today, 100% better. What screwed us is this Electoral College crap. The EC has got to go. Think about it – If a Foreign Adversary, ah let’s say Russia, wants to infiltrate your elections, what would be easier, influencing 3 million voters or just a few 538 Electors? To be honest I have never understood the EC and i’ve been voting since I was 19, I’m now 65.

  19. Were experiencing one of the most critical historic moments in the development of life on planet earth, and Trump is using it to sell another hotel

    • It is up to the real American Patriots to hold this criminal accountable and all who are involved in his criminal activity. Those who voted for him knew that there was a huge conflict of interests because of his domestic and International business interest yet they voted for him. Now that it is showing up in his political activities and is obvious the people are still sitting back and not pressuring their republican Congressmen and Senators to take action which makes them complicit. Don’t be surprised if you wake up one morning and hear the news that the Russian naval Fleet or China is perched off our shores….and the Don is just that! Wake TF up Americans…

  20. He should never have been given the oath of office. He is a cheater, fraud, liar, and general disgusting thing.
