  1. America is

    23 in education.
    25 in democracy index.
    34 in raising family index.
    37 in healthcare.
    No high-speed train.
    Highest number of homeless people.
    Highest number of incarcerated people.
    78% of people live paycheck to paycheck.

    Stock market is not economy of Americans! Where 90% of money belongs to top 10% of the population, it’s wallet for the rich.

    Let’s talk like adults, instead of name calling.

    I have left the proof on my playlist, if you would like to check!

    Let’s make our country better together. .

    No land,language or any other things exist in the end. Only judge by what we do when we have a choice to make a difference .

  3. TRUMP: “MAGA”
    2020: “Morons Are Going Away”

    BIDEN/HARRIS 2020 🇺🇸

  4. I am a true REPUBLICAN who voted for Joe biden. Some REPUBLICANS will call me a traitor. For not voting party line, Trump was told about covid19 in February. And did nothing. He had information about covid19 and what it will do to Americans. yet he did nothing. He was told many many AMERICANS will die, but he played it down. He even called it a Democrats hoex. knowing the truth. That covid19 was so deadly. And he new Americans where dieing, and did nothing. Did not even promote wearing mask. even that he new they could save lives, Now we have over 245.0000 AMERICANS dead. And today 1558 more Americans have dead. All because trump cares about saving his own skin, 4000 LAWSUITS AGAINST him. He knows when he leaves office he will face justice. That’s why he is trying to fix the election. He does not care if your a REPUBLICAN are Democrat. As long as he does not face justice. Trump will try and keep us devided. I am America first. what are you. American first. Are trump first?

  5. We’re getting those 2 doubt about it. God is not sleeping.

    I miss Obama. So much class and character and decency, and Americans just threw it all out the window in November 2016

  7. Democrats need to stop playing by 20th Century rules. It’s not effective against republicans with ZERO rules.

  8. I’ve got Obama speaking up for Biden on a loop, love to hear him talk.

    Obama’s biggest mistake was coming from a place of compromise with the opposition party even when he had a Congressional majority to assure passage of vital legislation. He wanted to be seen as being all inclusive and friendly with people who were anything but. Once the Republicans regained control he couldn’t accomplish anything. What a huge loss of progress for our country this was!!! If you have been given a mandate from the people you owe it to the people to stand up for them!!!

    Did you know that homeless people in Canada have better Health Care than the average American? Not only that but the Covid-19 tests are Free!

  11. Trump’s Memoir from his time in office will be a Pop-up Book by Dr. Suess.

  12. Yes!! Make it happen. They need to make the Republicans less powerful. They need to make the first year the most accomplished ever. Not by executive action but by legislation.

    The first domino fell this afternoon in the Pennsylvania Court Voter Fraud case on behalf of President Trump!
    Democrats must toss all of altered, fake, and late ballots! If Democrats cannot prove ballots received after midnight and BEFORE poll watchers were forced from ballot counting precincts, all ballots are nullified. If both parties do not agree, the constitution requires the United States go to a one vote per state system wherein President Trump has 31 votes compared to Biden’s 19 votes so that President Trump remains PRESIDENT. Republicans control the Pennsylvania House & Senate so it is most likely guaranteed to go to the Federal Supreme Court!

    obama has a sense of humor! *_ok, here is a scenario: trump and paula white, his longtime friend and ‘religious advisor’ to the white house both divorce and get ‘married’ – they are used to this by now. she already has a televangelist outreach and strong web presence, he is at present soliciting money under the guise of paying for election lawsuits – most of it goes into his pocket anyhow. they then together expand her tv presence to a fully fledged network. it is registered as a not-for-profit church and he becomes the pastor – he did mention he is the chosen one [did not say by whom though]. we all know by this time that ‘churches’ in the usa do pretty much what they want, especially with money. the children all become apostles or whatever. now that’s the gist of it, let your imagination do the rest_*

    • Trump doesn’t need Paula White, Trump already has his own congregation, 70million followers who worship him in America alone, million more followers around the world, he just do what he does best, talk for hours in front of his base and funds will keep on coming. That’s his legacy, he’ll be very happy.

  15. “there is an insentive structure for republicans to be oppositional” that is a strikingly sharp and important point that democrats need to start strategizing around because reaching across the isle should not be a one way activity, gop dont want to work with us unless they get everything they want

  16. “You dont have to do this, Joe”

  17. Love this guy. Obama help Joe Biden but love this two and Michelle and Biden wife.

    You best believe we as black women won’t do it again if we don’t get what we want for our community! Sick of always having to bail out these Corporate Democrats that take us for granted.. Try it again and see what happens.. Young black Progressives are not playing.
