      What’s he lied about?

    • @Doh Joe Gringo literally *Every. Single. Issue.* he campaigned on. Bank regulation, Mexico paying for the wall, construction of the wall, prescription drug regulation, infrastructure plans, bringing factory jobs back, making coal great again, tackling the opioid crisis, etc…

      @Jay Jay “Mexico paying for the wall…”

      They have paid for the wall through trade deals. They have also been scared into actually going after illegals in their own country by putting sanctions on Mexico.

      “Bank regulation…”

      First I’ve heard of this supposed campaign promise. CNBC says he just deregulated bank regs some.

      “…construction of the wall…”

      Sections of the wall are going up. Older sections are being retrofitted.

      “…prescription drug regulation…”

      First I’ve heard of it. Google says Trump is working on drug importation.

      “infrastructure plans…”

      Wants to spend 550b in infrastructure only has the budget for 200b.

      “…bringing factory jobs back…”

      “In the last 26 months of Obama’s presidency, manufacturing employment grew by 96,000 or 0.8%. In Trump’s first 26 months, manufacturers added 479,000 jobs, or 3.9%, 399% more jobs than Obama’s record.”

      “…making coal great again…”

      So far all he can do to slow the damage. Nuclear power plants have been built and so demand for coal will naturally decline regardless of what Trump wants.

      “…tackling the opioid crisis…”

      “…overdose death toll through September 2018, the latest month for which data is available, has flattened compared to November 2017, when we saw the peak 12-month…”

      “…Nationwide, there has been an estimated 5 percent decrease in reported deaths since the same 12-month period a year ago.”

      “Drug overdose deaths were down in the most recent 12-month reporting period compared to a year ago by an estimated 13 percent in New Hampshire, 20 percent in West Virginia, 11 percent in Iowa, 21 percent in Pennsylvania, and 22 percent in Ohio.”

      “…16,000 kilograms of heroin and nearly 5,000 kilograms of fentanyl have been seized in the United States since the beginning of 2017.”

      “President’s first year in office, 107,000 fewer adolescents started misusing prescription painkillers.
      Further, 68 percent fewer Americans over the age of 26 began using heroin than in the previous year.”

      Seems like Trump has actually followed the majority of his campaign promises with results and at least working on the other issues from the data.

    Sadly background checks won’t stop mass shootings.

    • That’s why we need to ban semi-automatic weapons.

    • 1911GreaterThanALL | August 21, 2019 at 11:38 AM | Reply

      It doesn’t help that those background checks result in fraudulent denials of transfer. CPRC claims 90%+ fraud rate. No thank you on background checks.

      @parkplace6677 “That’s why we need to ban semi-automatic weapons.”

      What about the intent of the second amendment in using weapons against the government? It flies totally in the face of the intent and the motive for the basis of private gun ownership in the United States. What you suggest essentially means we have no right to rebel against a tyrannical government.

      @dafttool private sales thats what you are talking about it is truly the only loophole for anyone to get a weapon because i bought many dealer guns background checks are pretty good…But in the end it would not change a mass shooters mind…and also i seen more guns on the street than in a actual gun store that is why i say the streets are flooded its to late.

      @dafttool you will not be able to purchase a firearm from dealer if you have misdemeanors or convicted of any type of felonies especially restraining orders or anything domestic.

      @Ermeric Carolissen “Works in every other country in the world.”

      The U.S. doesn’t even rank among the top 10 in terms of gun deaths. All of the other countries have far less firearms per capita and far more gun controls.

      @Ermeric Carolissen “How many countries have a regular mass shooting problem?”

      Australia for example has had 15 gun massacres prior to 1996 and 12 gun massacres post 1996.

      @Ermeric Carolissen “latest mass shooting in France and the UK?”

      11 December 2018 Strasbourg attack

      2 June 2010 Cumbria shootings

  4. All new members of Congress swear to read and defend the Constitution. Trump did as well when he was inaugurated.

    • Rock About Then why is he violating the Emoluments Clause of the Constitution (privately profiting off his public position) AND violating Article One of the Constitution (Congressional Oversight)? The silence from his cult of hatriots is deafening

  5. How about everybody gets a gun and next time there is a mass shooting we can all gang up on them,

  6. the only way to control guns is to buy them and train daily

    i knew when he said back ground checks, he was full of it, just saying it to keep the heat off of him until it blew over

    • That makes sense because people were emotional and weren’t thinking about the consequences of their actions. Emotional decisions have always worked out badly just ask New Zealanders. They just had someone over the weekend shot to death.

      He also said to take guns then go through due process.

  8. A criminal will find a gun . What does that have to do with legal gun ownership.

  9. It’s funny when a gun grabber says they’re for the 2nd amendment.🤣🤣🤣🤣

  10. Donald is all about his backers not the Americans. How shameful .

    everyone know putting and idea on paper becomes reality

  12. Wow look at the background of the dad, only the super elite rich would live in that background they chose

  13. Lots of people with guns. Lots of triggers to be pulled.

  14. *Trumplethinskin* throws a proud tantrum,
    But his terrible threats are loud phantoms.

    He’s always a liar. He always blames Democrats for his mess ups.. Democrats want background checks on private sales and gun shows.. Why is that wrong? 89% are for that… NRA bought and paid for!!

    “I say we take the guns first, have due process second.”

      @1911GreaterThanALL That’s your president. He said that last year.

    • 1911GreaterThanALL | August 21, 2019 at 12:09 PM | Reply

      @Timothy Brandriff Hmm but he hasn’t actually done it. Hasn’t even actually attempted it.

      I believe he is playing both sides for support. People hear rumors of Trump wanting background checks and Trump’s support for Red Flag laws. It may make the difference between him being reelected and not.

      Trump 2020.

  17. What did you expect from the Twitter Tottler. You can’t hold his attention over 2 minutes.

  18. Thank you Mr. Guttenberg! Your strength is admirable.

  19. Just because Trump changed his mind doesn’t make him a liar. There are plenty of gun laws on the books. I was getting back ground checked 40 years ago. It’s the bullying that has to stop.

  20. I’m so tired of hearing from these students. Being involved in a shooting doesn’t make them subject matter experts on gun control or violence. If anything, it makes them less impartial and grounded in reality.
