  1. Every republican president has given a recession but this takes the cake 🎂

    When will Americans learn ?

  2. How much did it cost to taxpayers for 278 visits to golf course which Trump took since his inauguration ?

    141 millions!

    • Uh you do know that none of our tax money went to that right. Like do you know how taxes even work?

    • Joe Biden sent his son on Air Force 2 to do business dealings across the world. Joe Biden used his position as VP to enrich his family using foreign oil money. Joe Biden withheld aid to Ukraine until special prosecutors were fired for investigating his son. When trump called it out, he got impeached. Democrats have been running a corruption racket in the highest of levels. All of them need to be voted out. They got caught because trump wasn’t supposed to win in 2016.

    • @Logan McLean Ivanka and Jared stole a whole lot more…….100s of millions of dollars

    • @Feral Human
      Joe Biden used his position as VP to secure his own family a high paying foreign oil job, he threatened to withhold aid when being investigated. Democrats went on to impeach trump when trump asked questions. We’re now taking down the democrats corruption racket

  3. Is it true that UK healthcare system is better than USA?

    Where does USA ranks for healthcare system ?

  5. *This story shows it is easier and quicker to get an Ancestry DNA Test… than it is to get a COVID-19 Test.*

      I don’t think you’re being entirely candid. Testing has ramped up nationwide, there is a drive-through testing. One of the problems is this instant testing is prone to false positives and negatives. I read an article that one NFL team tested positive but then and retesting they were negative. A lot of the testing is not accurate and a lot of it has to do with the type of test and the quality of the lab doing the examination.

    • Everyone – You MUST WATCH this video:
      Rudy gives an interview of what has been found on Hunter Biden’s laptop within the past few days.


    • Doctors speak out: h t t p s : / /

    • @marconi314 that has not been proven to be Hunter’s laptop. Stop spreading this as fact.

      We don’t have to hear any stories about how her great great grandmother was treated do we. I’m sure we already know and it doesn’t really add anything to 2020.

  6. Peoples like you would like to have know from of racism

  7. Why should her story be a complex one? I’m Puertorican, which means, I’m Indian, black and white, lately found out I have ancestors from Israel too, which explains my physical looks. Isn’t a big deal for us puertoricans, we are used to it and isn’t a huge deal for us.

  8. Them a go tired to see we face oh yeah,
    Me say them cant get we out of the race;
    Oh, man, its just a big disgrace;
    The way you draw a bad card…..
    Prophet Bob Marley. (Peace be upon him).

  9. This is a lot of our stories.

  10. Family is fam…

    Our ancestors are true warriors….

  11. I believe most black people are going to be surprised to see where their ancestors came from and will find they are racially mixed.

    • quan Brooklyn kid | October 17, 2020 at 1:39 PM | Reply

      We all r not mixed but only with black aka with different types of Africans

    • @quan Brooklyn kid
      Technically that being ethnical mixed, which most black Americans won’t even care about that.

      What would be more shocking is seeing like 2% white/European, or Asian or native, which could happen.

    • @quan Brooklyn kid All blacks in the US are mixed with European DNA. Except for the blacks who migrated recently from Africa

    • Decker Wonders | October 17, 2020 at 3:06 PM | Reply

      @quan Brooklyn kid it’s okay to have some white DNA in you. Don’t act racist like the coward you are.

    • Dude… we look in the mirror everyday and know we are related to white Americans

  12. 4th of November it’s going to be like the 4th of July party party party goodbye Trump

    • I hope 🙏

    • More like good bye good for nothing Joe Biden

    • @Fast Cars yeah we’ll see who’s right and who’s wrong on that my mole way Trump says if he loses he’s leaving the country I think that’s so he won’t be put in jail what do you think of that

    • hongphuc ngoanh | October 17, 2020 at 6:17 PM | Reply

      @Fast Cars with your car you can take Trump with and leave the country! 😉😃😀
      Keep calm it’s only a true joke!🤡
      USA needs you for build back better, but our country does’nt need Trump!😠😡

    The map of African countries doesn’t match the ancestry. They relate it mainly in central and west Africa and the map shows a lot more emphasis on the southern part of Africa. Very confusing!

  14. Trump’s efforts to suppress the US Census figures is a travesty to erase the existence of entire groups of people in our nation. If SCOTUS rules in Trump’s favor, an entire generation and contributions of people will be erased from US history.

    • Let me summarize video for the rest of you: “Blacks were slaves, so vote for the Democrats.” Or else, you ain’t black. Thanks.

  15. Trump just said at one of his rallies he’s going to lose and move out of the country straight to Russia

  16. Vote blue if you don’t want Trump’s junkie for another 4 years.

    • T. R. Campbell | October 17, 2020 at 3:52 PM | Reply

      What is a Trump junkie. We know this guy doesn’t even drink and the medication so they take her prescribed. What are you talking about junkie. Hunter Biden had a serious addiction problem, he was drummed out of the Navy because of his addiction, allegedly he has recovered from the addiction. I don’t know what you were talking about a Trump junkie?

    • @T. R. Campbell maybe Max meant junk? Not sure.

    • T. R. Campbell | October 17, 2020 at 5:11 PM | Reply

      @Dol l Perhaps? That then causes me to wonder what junk he was talking about. Perhaps he was talking about prison reform which was a Democrat party platform issue. Trump initiated that with the help of celebrities. Perhaps he was talking about lowering prescription drug prices which was another Democrat platform issue. Trump issued an executive order requiring the federal government to now negotiate with pharmaceutical companies so that Americans can pay the same price as foreign nationals. Perhaps he was talking about how Trump opened the roadmap to prosperity that our iconic JFK gave us which supercharge the economy back during that time and super charge the economy most recently up until the COVID-19 virus hit the world.
      Speaking of the virus, perhaps he is talking about sending large hospital ships to California and New York, two areas that were destined to be hard hit by the Virus. Perhaps he is talking about sending the military to build field hospitals and other areas that were identified to be hard hit. Perhaps he was talking about ramping up American industry to manufacture new state of the art medical equipment to combat the COVID-19 virus. Perhaps he was talking about daily White House briefing‘s to keep Americans in formed about the COVID-19 virus. I’m just wondering what he’s talking about.

    • @T. R. Campbell I just tried to make sense of the OP’s comment…I didn’t expect a lecture😤

    • T. R. Campbell | October 17, 2020 at 6:32 PM | Reply

      @Dol l I appreciate your reply and I didn’t mean it to be a lecture. Kind of more of an observation.

  17. Criminal Indictments by Administration

    Donald Trump (so far) — 215
    Richard Nixon — 76
    George W. Bush — 16
    Bill Clinton — 2
    Jimmy Carter — 1
    Barack Obama — 0

  18. Why isn’t she a “white bi-racial” woman?

  19. RICHARD COLEMAN JR | October 17, 2020 at 5:42 PM | Reply

    Has there been stories of white Americans finding their African ancestry. The whole world is becoming multicultural.

  20. It’s not complicated. Mitochondria DNA establishes bloodline origin. Indigenous mother. Indigenous woman. The european narrative bout mix is bs! You original or occidentals.
