    Make America Great Again is a weird slogan for an incumbent

  3. it is Diversity which makes us strong

      @Adam Cottrell so, diversity in evolution and imports. Not what we’re talking about though, is it? OK, different viewpoints, fine. Only if that leads to better solutions.

    • @Oh Yes, Please! I’ll Have Another Bowl Of TDS! you have just proven my point!! Diversity is so broad!! Your opinions and everyone else’s here is a reflection of diversity and it is this, having an open mind, and embracing the fact that people of different diverse backgrounds have different opinions and ideas collectively contribute to what makes us strong!!

      @Adam Cottrell nothing has been proven. You said it makes us strong, but I can’t say you’ve provided proof, or that I’ve proven your point. I just said different viewpoints are good if they lead to solutions. But is that what diversity means, when liberals use that term? I don’t think so

    • @Oh Yes, Please! I’ll Have Another Bowl Of TDS! you are a knobhead 💩 come Nov you can crawl back under your rock.😆

  4. Remember when ‘the caravan was coming’ America? Please don’t fall for this BS again. Those of us in the rest of the world can only stomach so much stupidity from a nation.

    • I recall it didn’t work in 2018 mid-terms. It does keep his base scared, they are more afraid of the boogeyman he has created than they are disgusted with him – and make no mistake, many are disgusted by him… but “THEY HATE YOU FOR BEING WHITE” and since nobody needs to apologize for the color of their skin, he keeps them in his thrall

    • The boogieman is going to get you if you don’t vote for Trump, come out from under your bed long enough to vote for him

    • @thewanderandhiscomp Keep trying to gaslight people, it’s all going to end in tears.

      If you find generalizations about entire groups of people, based on the qualities of just some of that group, disgusting and unfair (I know I do), maybe try not to lump ALL Americans into one “stupid nation” who ALL fell for the orange creep’s bald-faced lies. Remember, several million more than half of the 2016 voters could see what a disaster would occur if the illiterate racist wannabe dictator got into power, and we did NOT fall for the BS the first time.

    • PedroDeBandit What Has Trump Done to You??
      Liberals post their ABSOLUTE HATRED for Trump on this site all day, every day; a hatred similar to what they would have if Trump had killed their dog or put them in prison for 10 years for some crime they never committed! Yet, NO American Citizen has yet to share EVEN ONE negative thing Trump has done to them or to their family???? He has not taken away any of your rights or freedoms. He HAS been a strong supporter of the Black community through money for Black Colleges, Business Development Zones and Prison Reform. If you work, he HAS given you a pay raise by way of a tax cut. He has taken steps to get drug prices lower, to allow access to experimental drugs and to protect our borders and to bring our soldiers home and to fix the VA.

      So once again I ask, how can people who claim to be “loving & tolerant” HATE someone that they have never even met, so much???

      They claim he is “racist” yet provide NO evidence where he has ever said or shown that he HATES Black People or ANY other race? That is what racism is, in case you didn’t know. He has prominent Black friends that have been friends for decades who vehemently deny him being racist. Are they “uncle toms” or “traitors to their race”?? And, he wasn’t considered racist until he ran for President. Why can’t liberals just be honest and admit they HATE??

      @Trailin’ Annie to me personally I lost $50,000 of my retirement that was invested because of his mismanagement of the pandemic. He has divided my country. He’s out to ruin the world that I live in by pulling out of the climate Accord agreement. He has turned into a laughing stock our country by his election and his deeds there after. If you want more respond and I’ll give you more if you got all night I couldn’t tell you all of it

      @Trailin’ Annie by the way what did Obama specifically ever do to you? Outside of being black… without Obama being in the White House and the hateful racism that used to be hidden Trump would have never been elected. Now that racism is out in the open and worn as a badge of honor, hate rules our country. That is the worst thing that Trump has done and I can’t wait for all the stupid ignorant racist people to go back under their rocks and hide forever

    • Trailin Annie, you obviously haven’t been paying attention. Trump’s first remarks were to call Mexicans rapists and drug dealers. He called for a Muslim ban when the vast majority of Muslims are looking themselves to escape persecution. He was forced to settle suits for housing discrimination, he called Haiti and Africa shithole countries. He called white supremacist groups and Nazis marching under flags of enmity and sedition shouting Jews will not replace us “good people” .

    • Trailin Annie, you obviously haven’t been paying attention. Trump when he first announced called Mexicans rapists and drug dealers ,he called for a Muslim ban when the vast majority of Muslims are looking themselves to escape of in their own country. He called Haiti and Africa shithole countries, claiming Haitians carried aids. He called white supremacist groups and Nazis marching under flags of enmity and sedition shouting Jews will not replace us “good people” . He filed suit after suit to delay subpoenas, not to set legal precedent, but to delay justice. Mocking the Constitution. His cutting SNAP payments, and meals on wheels hurt others, and his justice department is in court attempting to overturn the ACA and eliminate pre-existing conditions. His incompetence laziness and stupidity turned a crisis into a catastrophe with Covid, and them murdered people with his politicizing and mocking the wearing of masks and holding rallies indoors eschewing masks and guidelines. We now know that he knew all along how deadly the virus is and that it was airborne in transmission, yet he continues to ignore distancing guidelines and eschew masks because “he’s on a podium far enough away” that does nothing for his constituents who flock to his rallies which only serve to boost his ego and endanger his followers. How about his refusal to confront Putin on bounties placed on American servicemen and women by Russia, or his refusal to authorize countermeasures against Russian hackers interfering with our elections. I could go on for pages, but these are the highlights, the damage done to the REAL economy to bolster Wall Street will eventually come home to roost. And his attempting to force schools to open without proper safeguards exposing millions of children to the virus is unconscionable. Hate Trump, anyone who had any common sense at all would, he’s willing to commit genocide to bolster his ego over his re-election.

    • @Thyalwaysseek whats your point? The white man created all the racist ideologies in the American society. Asians in internment camps, Jim crow era ?? Slavery??

    • @Tylorian Biden has never stated that he wants to defund police. In fact, he
      spoke of increasing funds
      for better training. Get the facts straight before you try
      spreading Repugnant lies!

    • @Trailin’ Annie If 2,977 people died from the #terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, then Dereliction-of-Duty Donny’s #criminal #negligence has led to 65 times that many lives lost to the Trump Virus-so far.

      Oh, and there’s the equivalent of another 9/11 in American lives lost to the Trump Virus every few days.

      “I do not take #responsibility at all.”
      ― Impeached President ‘Dereliction of Duty Donny’ Trump

      “Responsibility is a unique concept… You may share it with others, but your portion is not diminished. You may delegate it, but it is still with you… If responsibility is rightfully yours, no evasion, or ignorance or passing the blame can shift the burden to someone else. Unless you can point your finger at the man who is responsible when something goes wrong, then you have never had anyone really responsible.”
      ― Admiral H.G. Rickover, Father of the US Nuclear Navy

These news people needs to remind the people that Biden is not the president..This violence is happening under his watch..he is the sitting president ..The language he quoting is his racist taughs..its to scare white people to be afraid of black people just like his dad did..hes not disguise it..Its in plain site…he wants to go back to a time of white rule..You wonder why..hes rich.. will a white person feel good about themselves being poor but white.. what does that get them .but yet there are those that think that the skin coloring makes them better and gives them power…power of what.?

    • Betty Gathers Interesting logic!! Liberals claim Trump is a Nazi, akin to Hitler. In Hitler’s case, he rose up a group of people who believed they were superior and they did the bad stuff like assaults and rioting and destruction of other’s property. Yet, in your twisted HATE Trump mind, it is not Trump (Hitler) followers, but liberals that Trump is ‘driving to uncontrollable acts of violence’!! That sure sounds like what many have termed Trump Derangement Syndrome or TDS!!

    • @Trailin’ Annie
      You are in so deep there is no hope for you! My father was just like D.T. someone with NPD, and you can trust there isn’t one loving bone in his entire body! What Trump says at his rallies is a show, a show to lull those who refuse to see and understand that 90% of what he says to you is lies and it isn’t what he’s saying in private! Example: Trump promises he’s not trying to dismantle the Affordable Care Act and the protections for people with preexisting conditions, and yet they have a pending court case to do exactly that!

  10. Anyone who has ended up in business with a con man knows how money disappears into strange expenses that seem crazy but can’t be questioned because they are so opaque. Those funds run through various accounts and then show up off shore ina friend’s account. No different than how Trump describes Putin stealing money from Russia. It’s the standard playbook to steal money and get away with it.

    Trump is just a Outin wannabe.

      How about he killed 198,413 Americans@Trailin’ Annie? How about the fact that he lied about the very severity of Covid-19 to the American people?

    • @Trailin’ Annie TL;DR He got sued bc he didn’t let black people rent his flats, and he bought an entire page of a newspaper to tell everybody that five innocent black kids had to be killed. How is that not racist? If you don’t see it, you might be a racist yourself.

    • ​ @Trailin’ Annie Your exactly right. And even some level headed Democrats know that. See attached video of a black Clinton W/H advisor saying exactly that.

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gRwKMNbt0sw&list=PLWNYloXOVCiujgK18CttDGnBzur1XHbbs&index=10&t=16s

      The Democrats are guilty of everything they accuse Trump of, from racism to corruption. They are frightened that he is going to expose the corruption if he has another term and want him out at any cost.

    family, workers, and he has implicated himself. He told us what he believes. For once believe him.🤮
