  1. Wasnโ€™t trump going to pay for his campaign? So why did he have donors?

    • @DATING HARLEY QUINN actually he spends like a billionaire the taxpayers money

    • @Rabble Wolf also he didn’t lie when he said US debt was$ 19 trillion and will rise to $ 21 trillion due to over spending. Well

    • @Rabble Wolf he didn’t lie when he said US debt was $ 19 trillion and will go to $ 21 trillion due to senseless spending. Well! The debt is over$ 21 trillion and rising due mostly to his tax cuts for the wealthy $ 1.5 trillion. Also it’s going to get worse he is trying to pass another tax cut that will benefit the wealthy at 86% as reported by his favorite media FOX news.

    • “Wasnโ€™t trump going to pay for his campaign?”
      i dunno. wasnt mexico gonna pay for the wall? wasnt trump going to eliminate the defecit? i thought trump said he’d lock hillary clinton up.
      didnt he say he had a one trillion dollar infrastructure plan?
      You made me… promises promises

    • @88Gibson LesPaul fact $ 1.7 billion

  2. I wonder if t’rump supporters will ever finally realize that republicans don’t give a ๐Ÿ’ฉ about them? ๐Ÿค”
    And that they only cater to the wants of the wealthy.
    But use issues like guns and abortion to pander for their votes.
    Considering that that idea won’t fit on a hat though, I’m guessing it’s a bit too advanced for those idiots. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜‚

      It’s crazy that they say they’re so concerned about abortion, but once a child is born poison the water it drinks and the ground it plays on.

      @Grey Area a long while, middle-class equals server at a golf club for one of his rich cronies

      It’s great that all those idiots seemingly think that the stock market doing well is good for the country. Poor people usually own millions in stocks, right?

      @subtle username I think we need to keep repeating that most Americans are one set of tires, one ER visit one broken leg away from bankruptcy and homelessness. Who out there has a $500 emergency fund? I know not me

      subtle username lmao so true

  3. So one of Trump’s backers wants to build a swamp in the middle of the Arizona desert, even if he has to drain every drop of water in Arizona into it.

  4. James Ritacco | July 19, 2019 at 2:43 AM | Reply

    Trump is draining the swamp to find only the best swamp monsters.

  5. Those idiots will still chant drain the swamp as if that ever meant anything.

    • mildred gomez | July 19, 2019 at 6:48 AM | Reply

      He knew hes swamp thing and he was going to fill the swamp with his greedy cronies rigged election fake potus. We the people didn’t vote for swamp thing period!

    • To Trump, “the swamp” is comprised of anyone who gets in his way. Trump has never had the regular human perspective.

    Drain the swamp? Trump is the swamp! And he is filling America with swamps all over

    Honest Journalists should be given the Nobel peace prize.
    Where do they think people are going to get water. And the People downstream …
    Makes me weep this government is ruining the USA.

    • Me too, Karen Bishop. We must donate and vote. Let us pray that is enough.

      Nope it will take action!

    • What do you have in mind by “action”, Nancy Chasteen?

    • @GR46404 I can’t speak for Nancy, but I would recommend recruiting, supporting, and volunteering for progressive candidates, at every level, who are devoted to eliminating corruption and to protecting our environment and our valued government functions and employees. We can’t leave it up to chance in 2019. Please inform everyone you know about this corruption, and encourage them to join you.

  8. The corruption in this country is now as bad as Putin’s Russia.

  9. Trump and family along with the gop are using the White House and presidency as their personal/private sales center enterprise to sell out America to line their pockets

    • mildred gomez | July 19, 2019 at 6:55 AM | Reply

      Yes, I guess only you and I z that, because these white racists bigots are letting fake potus get away with everything, all these pigs with respect to the animals, are stealing the land like always, these slobs thing our land is for them to hog it up. And keep bringing in immigrants from europe!

  10. Good point Rachel about watching what they do. It’s like that carnival shell game with a pea and three half shells. We’re sure the pea is under one of the shells. Thanks for the Arizona update.

  11. So all Americans are just gonna sit and watch . Hitler Trump

    • @Kath Casey hey! They use Uncle Sam a little for you to join military now give us your tax money on everything you buy and what you own. Example. Your car is paid in full owe nothing. Uncle Sam says pay taxes on your property meaning we still own it pay us for letting you use it or we’ll take it. Your taxes our paychecks

    • @Jesus F. Jesus I think Trumpuppet are a better term, because he pulls all their strings and guide them

  12. Solzeye Jewels | July 19, 2019 at 3:21 AM | Reply

    That entire administration if filled with greedy criminals. It’s evil.

  13. Hey America, Donald Trump is stealing from you.

    • Nancy Chasteen | July 19, 2019 at 7:23 AM | Reply

      It’s way more than the obvious. He is selling our land right out from under our feet. Check it out!

    • Common Sense | July 19, 2019 at 7:47 AM | Reply

      And the theft is of your future, your honor, your dignity, and your lands. Sound familiar?

    • His supporters are not smart enough to realize this.

    • @Dawn-Marie Langlois yet trumpuppet say. He’s working for no pay and donates his checks to charities. If he receives no pay how can he be donating it to charities. I get paid and donate to several charities. If I get no pay how can I donate. That is an oxymoron

    new cabinet secretary meets Trumps criteria. Corruption is a requirement. TRUMPS BEST PEOPLE..

    Please. Please don’t let this story die. Don’t let it disappear. This needs to get so much coverage that people go to prison.

    Maybe the plan is to eventually sell water at exorbitant prices to these fools….

  17. He drained the swamp and turned it into the biggest cesspool in America. A turd by any name will still smell like trump.

    David Barnhardt, the Pillsbury doughboy of corruptionโ€ฆ.

  19. This is a big business strategy. Split & move departments, force downsizing of career employees, phase out union workers by backfilling with higher paid management workers & then later phase them out & hire preferred private contractors with no government oversight & regulation of privately owned LLCs.

    Has anyone in the Trump administration been found secretly working for the benefit of the USA?
