    The chaos this “president” causes is exhausting.

  4. Sorry Mr President, you’ve lost that ground.

    • @Whicker Boy Why are Democrats evil? Do you even know why you supposedly hate Democrats?

    • @Yugi Yami § 2635.702 Use of public office for private gain.
      An employee shall not use his public office for his own private gain, for the endorsement of any product, service or enterprise, or for the private gain of friends, relatives, or persons with whom the employee is affiliated in a nongovernmental capacity, including nonprofit organizations of which the employee is an officer or member, and persons with whom the employee has or seeks employment or business relations. The specific prohibitions set forth in paragraphs (a) through (d) of this section apply this general standard, but are not intended to be exclusive or to limit the application of this section.

      (a) Inducement or coercion of benefits. An employee shall not use or permit the use of his Government position or title or any authority associated with his public office in a manner that is intended to coerce or induce another person, including a subordinate, to provide any benefit, financial or otherwise, to himself or to friends, relatives, or persons with whom the employee is affiliated in a nongovernmental capacity.

    • Because saying it on tv makes it true

    • @Linda Scott behold when people are dumb enough to say a comment that simply says “trump 2020” is “copy and paste” “spam”

    • @Protex Blue my god, the sheer idiocy of saying that other news outlets parroting the original story are “confirming it”

  5. Let’s be honest, deep down, we all know he said it. They’ll never admit it to themselves, but even his supporters know he said it.

    Obama visited our Troops overseas 7 times. That’s not even counting the multiple times he visited our troops at military bases here in America during the holidays. Obama visited our troops in Iraq just 3 months after taking office. Traitor Trump waited TWO WHOLE YEARS before he visited our troops for the first time in Iraq. And that was only after he was pushed to do so by advisers. 

    I have no doubt that Trump complained about having to make that trip to visit our troops the same way he complained about attending the memorial ceremony for our fallen in France.
    Trump: “Why do I have to fly all the way to Iraq just to visit troops. They’re a bunch of losers anyway.”

    And then when he finally made the trip, he turned that visit into a campaign rally for himself and used our troops as political props. Trump continues to show his contempt for our men and women in uniform with his silence concerning the Russian bounties placed on the heads of our troops in Afghanistan. To this day, he has not uttered one word about it. NOT…..ONE.

    I knew back in 2016 before the election that Trump had no respect for our military the moment he said he knew more about fighting wars than our Generals do. He basically claimed to know more about fighting wars than Generals like Grant, Patton, Washington, MacArthur, Eisenhower, as well as our current living Generals like Mattis. This preposterous claim came from a draft dodger who has NEVER served one day in the military.

    It goes without saying, that ONLY a vindictive draft dodging traitor, who has nothing but contempt for the men and women in our military, would utter something as outrageous and insulting as that. That was all I needed to hear.


  7. Daily Reminder: Trump called Corona Virus a Democrat Hoax that will “magically” disappear.

  8. This needs to be played from now until November!!! The man is a complete disgrace and danger to our nation period!!!

  9. He did nothing about the bounty on American troops. How can you keep him in power???

  10. it is those who voted for the Donald in 2016…
    who are the real “suckers”…
    and those voting for him in 2020…
    are the real “losers”…

  11. Ever consider what the word HATRED re-arranged looks like🤔
    Try RED HAT..!!

  12. It’s not about convincing the military, it’s about him convincing all the idiots who think they support the military without understanding what that means.

    • @Bunker Boy How many times didBiden dodge the draft?I know he didn’t serve.

    • @David Eby Trump doesn’t care about you or what you have to say, he calls his supporters idiots and easy to manipulate!

    • Two thumbs up Tim. Short and sweet thanks.

    • As soon as Trump tells the truth about the Washington war mongers, they go into a panic and start making up fake news about Trump. This piece is complete BS and poorly delivered as well.

    • @raymond schulz Trump is distracting you. It’s not the people in the pentagon that make money off our huge military spending, it’s the lobbyists and the companies in the private sector spending millions (maybe billions long term) to develop new military technology that we probably don’t need. Don’t believe me? Just look up the F-35 production delays.

    I will take General Kelly and General Mattis’s word over the lying Fraud in Chief.

  14. GET HIM OUT 2020

  15. BIDEN/HARRIS 2020 🇺🇲

  16. Putin offers bounties on American soldiers and Don is fine with that.
