      @V stop letting MSNBC tell you how to think

      @Reg U my positive thoughts are maybe one of these days you guys will wake up because you’re being led down rabbit holes you have no idea what you’re doing the blind leading the blind

      Russian Bot I can’t speak for everyone, but MSNBC has absolutely NO power to tell me what to think.

      Russian Bot Rabbit holes, of all kinds, are potentially dangerous. Which one of them did you fall down?

  2. It gets worse, much worse. A former Trump admin official just got a multimillion dollar contact for masks to the Navajo nation, using a company he founded less than 2 weeks ago. The Navajo will probably not even see a stitch of a mask from him. This is quite possible the worst corruption in American history.

      At the beginning Fima sent body bags! 🙄 I live in New Mexico and Trump has done these people wrong! He has kept thier money, that wall has destroyed thier burial grounds, he has done nothing to help! He has tore them down over and over in three years! 💙🙏 Glad they are finallly saying something!

      @Nicole Cordova Horrible. Politicians have much shame on their shoulders, especially tRump. But we voters cannot point fingers without looking in the mirror. My son lives in Montana, his job, before the virus, took him to Indian Country, the poverty in some places overwhelmed him. It should not have taken this horror for us to be aware of such injustice.

      @Christine King Since I was little it has been like this! They love to profit off their culture but never truleyy help them! 💙 God Bless you guys!🙏

  3. Before deciding what the federal government should do to help people, t’rump will always respond with, “how does this affect me though” first.

      V I am outraged at your display of racism.. Commenting on other persons skin color is disgraceful and you should be shamed. Shame on you.

      Look how racist the left is against orange people and black people and white and brown and yellow people…Trump has pulled us through the Chinese democrat virus and saved millions of lives…Trump 2020 or communism, you choose!!!

  4. My people I am a Native American

  5. Destitute environments especially like the American Indians, the u.s government have no desire to help these people, a grocery store and medical facility to serve those people.

      That’s because Navajo only get a acre from the tribe.
      In which they are supposed to pay on.
      It’s the navajo leaders.
      Very backwards.
      The Comanche Nation Gives you 17 acres in town and Builds you a house.
      Utilities are included for low income.
      They will give you 250 acres for farming.
      It’s the difference in tribal Nations.

    2 hours to reach a store ! USA is showing up as a true 4th world country

    • Tanner Shortnacy | May 27, 2020 at 2:49 PM | Reply

      America is a big nation. Some places you can travel hours and never see signs of another human. Should we build stores where no people live. Does that make fkn sense. Would that make us 1st world again or would it mean we are fkn stupid.

    • skilled person | May 27, 2020 at 3:26 PM | Reply

      @constantine meaning even a 3rd world countries nowdays you can find stores everywhere

      @Tanner Shortnacy you talk like Navajo is just a family name 😐

    • Virginia O'Flaherty | May 27, 2020 at 4:34 PM | Reply

      Navajo Nation is the size of West Virginia with under 200,000 people. Ever been there? If the US government honored its treaty obligations there would be water. But there are golf courses in Phoenix and water is sent to Las Vegas and California from the Colorado river that runs near Tuba City.

      Virginia O’Flaherty I seen a water tower in this video. You do know those big round tanks that are high in the air those are water tanks right.

  9. com’on USA We can do better……and its on our soil.

    I live in New Mexico, we are one of the poorest states in the US! I have been donating as much as I can to our Nation! In New Mexico we are all indian somehow and we will rise like we always have! Without our Indian ancestors New Mexico wouldn’t be so beautiful!
