    1. @shkspr78 s Placing your name placard on a existing fence, having Americans fearing losing thousand of border acres thru court cases pending “Imminent Domain” without US involved causing deplorable human existence of South American countries forcing fleeing for their lives and families criminally dangerous caravans have suddenly vanished.

    1. If those earning $140,000/year and above were all paying the same rate of FICA taxes as those earning less than $140,000/year, there’d be plenty of money in the funds. The same people who claim a flat income tax is fair don’t think a flat FICA tax is fair. Isn’t that the oddest thing?

    2. Social programs should get smaller when unemployment goes down and economy goes up. That’s just simple math.

    3. Borrowing money for tax cuts is no different than borrowing money for entitlements. Both are forms of spending. It was “new discretionary spending” for GOP tax cuts that amassed the current $23-T national debt, not entitlements. None of that matters now, as there is no conceivable way for either Public or private debt to ever be paid back. Trump’s Fed is in panic mode by printing monopoly money, which will devalue currency to essentially become worthless.

    4. @Dave Schultz “Unemployment” numbers ? The GDP ? Gtfoh. Perhaps the only statistic that is truly factual, is that 100% of all people born do & will have a finite life-span.

  1. Guarantee that he cut taxes for the rich and lowers S.S., Medicare, and Food Stamps benefits right after the election.

    1. @Richard Barber – Crazy but he will win. People have got to learn the hard way before they can wake up to this conman.

    1. Unemployment was down to 4.9 in July 2016 and 4.7 before years end (Facts). Trump walked into and claimed credit for a recovering economy. I’m not an Obama fan, he deserves the criticism he recieved like every politician should. But Trump is a Bullshiter, has been since the late 80’s early 90’s.

    2. @shkspr78 s
      How did we get out of the recession?
      Hint: American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.
      Also if you had an active 401K during Obama’s presidency it tripled in value.

    3. @shkspr78 s
      First, acknowledge that Obama’s final fiscal year ended on the first of October 2017. That was just over two years ago (Obama fiscal year ended on October 1 2017). We WERE in the LONGEST economic recovery period – OVER 11 Years.

      Second, let’s ranking the Trump Economy: The president brags about U.S. prosperity. But conditions improved more under his predecessors. (Even Carter.)

      Here are some niffy graphs that prove you are oh so ever wrong. And, no, Business Insider is not a liberal rag.

      And some good analysis….Trump’s favorite magazine that he is desperate to get his face on the cover (eight fake ones in New Jersey his golf club).

      Trump promised to protect SS….not he is open to tearing it apart.

      Remember Trump promising quick dreams like 10% pay rise for soldiers and 10% tax cuts for the middle class… Every year since 1961 military got a raise. Trump did give an increase of 2.6% it wasn’t the 10% he promised.
      Remember just before the 2018 mid-term elections, how Trump promised to give the middle class a 10% tax cut? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=onjEAkHEbYI 2:52 right there on tape.

      Nevermind the promise that Mexico was going to pay for the wall.
      Nevermind the promise that he was going to FIX ACA by replacing Obamacare with something better.
      Nevermind he was going to protect those with pre-existing conditions…well, that is under threat.

      Oh and the promise that the world won’t laugh at us….we turned into the best joke ever.

    4. @Ford Bronco Trump has already abandoned his lawyer Rudy, just like his last lawyer Michael Cohen, and look where he ended up. What a joke.

    1. Eric Krupa Puck you Trump you are Coraption Crimenal coraption Conspiracy Judgement Death Death Death To Trump Luck Hem Up Foever I Demand In Jesus Christ Jesus Christ Name amen

  2. trump “said he wouldn’t touch entitlements”….trump lies. Is anyone surprised? No one in the world trusts trump’s words….except his strokers who, thank God, are the dwindling minority.

    1. @Hildebeast Clinton
      Are these facts hateful too?

      The Trump Foundation was currently under investigation by the state of New York for tax fraud.
      7 Nov. President Donald Trump has been ordered by a New York State judge to pay $2 million to a group of nonprofit organizations as part of a settlement in a civil lawsuit stemming from persistent violations of state charities laws. He is made to pay 2 million, for using 3 million (money that was promised to go to cancer kids) in foundation receipts for his own political gain. Trump was found to have misused his charity for PERSONAL INTERESTS. ‘pattern of illegality’
      President Donald Trump must pay a $2 million judgment for improperly using his Trump Foundation to further his 2016 presidential campaign, a New York state judge ruled Thursday. The order appears to bring to an end the New York attorney general’s lawsuit against the president and three of his adult children over the now-shuttered foundation, which the attorney general alleged had engaged in repeated “self-dealing.” Aired on 11/7/19.

      The Trump Foundation sent out a public statement…said the Trump Foundation is pleased to DONATE 2 million to several different charities. The statement does not contest the judge’s ruling that Trump abused his charity.
      Anyone else caught stealing money from vets and kids with cancer would be in jail
      .

    2. @Hildebeast Clinton you want more troops in iran? america is fast losing allies, trump neglected to inform ally countries of the hit on soleimani, countries with troops in the area. how many thousands of americans and others are you willing to sacrifice to have this looney in the whitehouse?

  3. I think it’s funny that the republicans can’t stop mentioning the Biden’s but remember who this case is against! Remove agent orange face so America can go back to work

    1. He flip flops publicly, privately he’s going to do it regardless. Trump wants to punish the country( and it’s people) that besmirched his precious image.

  4. Get the money from other countries, you mean, stealing their oil and other resources to repay your national debt. What a crock… Morally Bankrupt Conman…

    1. Yes, his sketchy “hand waving” grandiosity is no substitute for an actual plan; kind of like his plan to repeal and replace which was really just repeal with no replace.

    2. Allowing to make atomic bomb & just to get money selling/offering advanced defense technological weapons to a country whose people/students from elite royal families were mainly identified and involved in 9/11 tragedy.
      He is not capable to identify ” wolf in the garment of sheep” .
      There is another way to neutralize negative trade balance by reducing spending to safe more, that should be new American Dream at national and individual levels.

  5. Of course he’s going to do this and worse if reelected. Everything that helps regular Americans will be taken away to give to the wealthy donors and Trump will pocket millions for himself.

    1. @Sux_2_B_U why did giuliani and trump slander and spy on ambassador yovanovitch? why did trump and giuliani have to get yovanovitch “out of the way”? trump and giuliani don’t like women do they?

    2. @k Gio sorry there are no enough trump supporters off their medications to get trump out of jail and into the whitehouse.

    3. @Courtney Lynn look up Uncle Blazer on Twitter he will detail how SDNY has been compromised by trump’s allies there !

  6. He also promise to low taxation weeks before 2018 elections , he will say whatever is needed in the moment

  7. Stop calling then entitlements. We pay for this insurance all through our working life. It’s the government who has raided social security through the years and made it unstable.

  8. I will pray for the impoverished communities on both sides, looks like it is once again time for them to suffer for GOP tax cuts.

    1. True but since then the Billionaire controlled right wing media have been brainwashing their angry mob into believing it’s better to collectively suffer than to let an immigrant or minority “get a helping hand. Their spiteful rage and vindictiveness is fueled daily and hourly over at Fox propaganda.

    2. Mainely it’s the Josef Goebells news network.

      “You tell the lie. Make it a big lie. Repeat it often. And be sure it reaches the population with the highest concentration of the least intelligent”
      Josef Goebells. Hitler’s minister of Propaganda.

  9. The person who doesn’t have the soul,heart, morals,ethics is the devil.
    A devil destroys everything our morals, ethics,souls,hearts
    The 45th administration is totally collapsed.
