  1. This Trump carry-on will only work for half of his base not all of it I don’t know what he’s thinking Joe 2020 build back better

  2. Trump is obviously a danger to the planet and human life

  3. Trump’s advisors Giuliani, Bannon, Juan Guaidó Venezuela’s who has declared himself Venezuela’s interim president a friend of Trump and Mike Pence.

    Indeed trump was a wrong president for America in first place.

    • ​@G Guest We all know that newyork times isn’t trumps friend. So the only thing the mentioned is that Trump ask Pompeo and Pence for such a plan. But they write diffrent toplines on the media, some are using questions. Is Trump attacking Iran? Some are more honest “trump asked for striking iran” <-- that would be terminated action. But 1 thing is clear. If that would be a scret operation it would be over right now. They shared this news arround the world and i don't think its a secret leak like Snowden-story was i think Trumps enemies are so afraid of him that they make up horrible sounding stories all the time. If Trump want to attack nuclear TARGET Media wouldn't leak it to iranian news stations... not even al jazeera...this story is clearly hard to believe if u havn't TDS

      @rob s I notice you didn’t answer the question about a double standard and, in fact, doubled-down. And you wonder why people laugh?

      Yeah he was wrong but it didn’t stop them from electing him. The past is the past. He was the president we cant erase that. We can move forward and put our heads together. To do better because depending on people to make it better is just holding us back.

    • @Alison Casilli iran takes this fake news serious. New york times and other newsnetworks are causing danger….

    • @Viper 123 trump had always claimed to be a Democrat but had to get with the Republican party because they are fine with lying, conning, manipulating. The democrat party would never have accepted him. And if they did he never would have come close to winning.

  5. That was predictable A Year ago
    Trump is a failed person president

  6. This President will continue to undermine American interests for years to come. The true extent of the damage caused by Trump is immeasurable.

    Trump just wants to tear down the US standing in the world. Trump is a massive and dangerous failure.

    trump killed more americans than any terrorist ever can

    • If usa counts like germany. Watch cdc they say its only 25000 clear covid19 death where you cant say it was the preexisting condition. Thats how germany count. If the usa would count the same way it would be the same ratio. Usa is 4 times as big as germany and the testing and reporting is the biggest possible only china is ahead

    • Virus isnt politics. And as a german i would be quiet. Because germany is maybe involed in possible us election fraud with scytl on servers in frankfurt

    • More than a quarter million and counting.

    • @John more than a quarter million and counting.

    • @rob s I disagree. I live in America and the number of votes seem correct. There is like a little less than half of America that will die for Trump. The rest of us want this MF out.

  9. Trump doing what he usually does with all of his many failed businesses:
    Screws over his workers
    Declares bankruptcy

    And this guy is supposed to ‘care about America’ and ‘make America great again’ according to his supporters.
    Huh, he’s really showing us how much he cares about America, which is very little.

  10. The Orange Conman is trying to leave a mess behind because he can’t stay in office.

  11. This has never happened in America’s history because there has never been a Narcissist Incompetent Leader In Chief. Why isn’t the 25th Amendment being used. People are dying daily due to Trump deliberately Downplaying the Coronavirus.

    • They should have used it a long time ago but if he moves to take military action against iran then they should do it lickety split, And put pence in until biden is sworn in. Pence is nuts but hes not nuts that way….

    Trump is so mad he didn’t get reelection he might start a war. War kills people. I hope he goes to prison.

  13. Trump is a disaster, if Trump attack Iran Biden presidency should send Trump to Iran to face prosecution.

  14. Trump thinks if he starts a war he will get to stay. Why would they put someone incompetent in charge.

    • @Moms MADD biden cannot until his days, if war start today, trump still in control til it end. Unless war start after 68 or 69 days when biden official in white house then biden will be the one in control.

    • @Moms MADD now we just hope the chief in command in the military wouldn’t follow his order. The chief in command is the one can save this country.

    • @Tom NGUYEN He won t be the chief in command come January thank god.. He will be a jail bird.

    • @Tom NGUYEN Can you not read what it says. IF AN ELECTION CAN NOT BE HELD. An election was held before Trumps term was over. Biden won, Biden will take over in January.

    • @Moms MADD yes I know biden won, but it’s still trump term, he still have 68-69 days left.

  15. Can we not forcibly remove Trump from the WH? We need to stop him. Military needs to drag him out of his chaotic behaviour.

  16. The only thing Trump will be striking is the pavement way outside of WH property.

  17. Trump can’t do diddly w/o his cowardly enablers. And Gen Milley isn’t one of them.

  18. This madman will destroy America and her people, and yet his fans adore this insane child.

    • I am at the point now that I have ZERO respect for any republican. You are part of this horror or you are standing back DOING NOTHING. SAME thing, dispicable!!!

    • @Terry Hawkins really. Nope just some of us the rest are very decent people who have helped people all across the world. SIT DOWN FOOL!!!

      @Truth91 he is a child in emotional depth, mental capability, and accepted title among general educated people.

      @Claude Williams trumpsterfuck. love it. Stealing that frfr

    • I watched Mary Trump interview yesterday. When asked about what she thought about T having 70 mill votes. She responded “It is a disgrace and is a permanent stain on America.”

  19. “They got money for wars, but can’t feed the poor.”

  20. This is the complete lunacy of one greatest loser and sucker in American history.
