    Oh, that poor billionaire needs another tax cut.

      @KevinIf he’s helping put Trump in the WH the average American does more for “individual’s lives and society” every time they take a dump.

    • @Kevin
      Chump also “contributes” to millions of folks lives, by rolling back environmental regulations, throwing millions OFF social programs (just so he can claim to his base of supporters that he is shrinking welfare rolls), and by giving tax breaks to corporations who turn around AND DON’T HIRE MORE EMPLOYEES.
      Yeah, with people like Chump and Ross “contributing” to society, this will be a dead planet by 2099. Glad that I won’t be here.

    • Andrew Mitchell he probably bought back stocks and shares no losing money on the market. Trade wars so easy to win 😂😂 Karma

    If he strongly supports racial equality and environmental protection, why is he raising money for trump?

    • He’s a hpyocrite. He’s about as much for equality for all as he is for environmental issues..

      @2Legit 2BReal What would make you think that? Are you a white supremacist?

    • Marlowe Dugger | August 9, 2019 at 11:38 AM | Reply

      @foxdesignbuild foxdesignbuild and these mass murders against the people trump hates doesn’t matter. Their money helps keep the man with the tongue of a serpent and voice of a Dragon to continue his racist hatred rhetoric.

  5. Boycott … Done deal ! Money talks

    • @Roddy McApe what state u from McApe? Fact: minimum wage in moscowmitch home state is $7.25/hr . Hahahahah ….

    • @B spearbach I think you created your account yesterday as you have 0 subscribers and I noticed other people using similar avatars as yours. I can’t help but think that Russians use accounts like yours to sew the seeds of disruption which are tearing our country apart.

  6. The elite does not care about the small people only there agenda

    • @Kevin It does help that they are right.

    • @Dear Leader That’s what you keep telling yourself, but you keep on losing. Take your participation ribbon and go back to bed

    • The people who lose there jobs they basically saying they don’t care…… if this is what we doing nobody job is safe accept the rich.

    • michelle homan | August 9, 2019 at 12:01 PM | Reply

      Kevin says the guy who came here to tell people they’re wrong and he’s right. Hum… sounds a bit hypocritical.

  7. If people can make even 1 billionaire NOT donate money to trumplethinskin, it is worth it.

  8. Try raising that kind of money and give it to underprivileged neighborhoods health care.

  9. Corporations only listen when we impact their profits, they force us to boycott.

  10. Boycott all them devils

    • Patriot Joelephic | August 8, 2019 at 5:46 PM | Reply

      Ok if that’s the case we should kind out who donated to the Clinton’s, Obama’s, warrens, sanders and bookers. It’s only fair.

    • Patriot Joelephic they not the nazis tho , you are

    • free world
      @S. T

    • Just boycott all these billionaires that supported Trump’s and associates. They don’t care about the loss of lives the only thing they care about is profit. Boycott Walmart The Walton’s family for the massive shooting took place.

    Soul cycle seems to be lacking a soul.

    boycott! Dale Carnegie will tell you. The only thing they hear is the change in their pocketbooks. Time to find out who they are, and hit them where it hurts. The only thing they understand. Take their money.

  13. This is how it’s done America until equality is not just a talking point!
    The Montgomery Bus Boycott was a civil-rights protest during which African Americans refused to ride citybuses in Montgomery, Alabama, to protest segregated seating. … Four days before the boycott began, Rosa Parks, an African-American woman, was arrested and fined for refusing to yield her bus seat to a white man.Feb 3, 2010

      Thank you for your solidarity with us black folk its greatly appreciated , the Democrats are allowing us to sit on the front of the bus now but they have a new way to mess with us .
      Flooding Black American communities with illegal aliens who dont give a crap at all for black American citizens and the struggle of our past as well as our current struggle .
      Hard for a black child to get a good education when his or her classroom is overcrowded with illegal alien children who are in competition for the teachers limited attention.
      The Democrat party has and always will be poison to the black American people. Or as Hillbi likes to call us “super predators “

    • What equality is not currently not had? Please elaborate.

    He can do whatever he wants with his money and we can do whatever we want with ours. Vote with your feet people and make him pay financially. Do not support his business.

    • Businesses, plural he owns a foot ball team in a state that has cheated a few Democrats out of their presidencies.

  15. Marc St.james | August 8, 2019 at 3:13 PM | Reply

    Nothings says i don’t agree like …here let me make lots of money for you!

  16. Hey… he can support whom ever he wants, and his customers can spend their money where ever they want. It’s called Capitalism. You know, the system that made him a billionaire.

  17. The oligarchs are in bed with the fascists.

    • Of course they are. Corporatism is fascism.

    • The Democratic Party is moving towards fascism at a rate never seen before. With their corporate Buddies. Look at the biggest companies in this country they’re trying to sway the election left. They are globalists if you think of these people care about you you are sadly mistaken

  18. The top 1% never cared about the people. They used empty talk to try to convince us while funding people like Trump and Pence.

    • Marlowe Dugger | August 8, 2019 at 4:44 PM | Reply

      Boycott them all. They will drop trump.

    • @Marlowe Duggeryou are correct boycott all of Trumps businesses, and associates it worked with the 1960s boycott of grapes with Cesar Chavez for labor civil rights… We all need to stick together and boycott Trump out of office. And let’s not forget boycott Moscow miTch, Lindsey Graham, the backstabber, and all Republicans out-of-office let’s boycott them off from their businesses.

    • You have it backwards. The people who are trying to control everybody are the Democrats and the globalists you need to dig a little deeper and understand what you’re saying because you are barking up the wrong tree. Trump is supported by regular people that’s why the media hates him so much because the media and the elites hate regular people.

  19. Fact: most billionaires support Trump. We don’t need billionaires in this country (and the world). No one needs that much wealth. Jeff Bezos can alone solve world hunger with his wealth.

    • Billy Batson | August 9, 2019 at 6:26 AM | Reply

      So, it makes sense that if you want to be a billionaire too, you need to support Trump. If you want to remain poor, support Democrats. Is it that difficult to comprehend?

    • S S A not for long they bought back stock with their trillion dollar tax cuts. Stock market in free for all with this easy to win trade war. Karma 😂
