  1. Won’t happen to Trump

  2. As someone who studied history at college, I do often wonder how major historical events could have been different if a 1 term President had gotten reelected and served during those events.

    • Usually presidents regardless of party, don’t do as well with their second term as they do in their first one. They make a lot more mistakes and they are a little more carefree about looking bad because now they have already secured two terms. Personally I wonder more about the ones that didn’t win. How would have they have handled a certain crisis or a changing of cultures? That’s a better question than a first term that you already got a taste of what they govern like.

  3. Trump 2020 👍

  4. Add Trump to the list.

  5. Trump 2020 💪👈

    I see a bunch of fools here. From what I can see former Republicans hate Trump. Or are we showing we are as dumb as the USA?

    • @Keith Mc you know those pictures were take early … before the events even started, right? Hahaha

      2017? ok if you say so
      photoshopped you say, nobody there you say
      yet; Trump STILL WON..and in actuality quite BIGGLY
      but that said?
      the crowds are massive…so…BIGGLIER than BIGGLY

      ps? for the FIRST TIME in a near DECADE i heard Americans finally chanting USA!…USA!…USA!…USA! again

      it was GREAT to hear, once again

    • It’s the RINOs and party elites who hate Trump

  7. Trump’s mismanagement of the pandemic will end his presidency.

    220,000 Americans have died from covid-19. Per capita, Canada has 37% the deaths of America.

    Keep the border shut until President Biden has time to fix America.

    • Actually, it was states politics and local governors and mayors who mismanaged it. Go do some research and see that all governors stated public ally the federal government provided all assistance they needed: Equipment, ventilators, money, etc. it was mismanaged locally.

      Yeah. It had nothing to do with the Democrats opposing lockdowns, calling him racist for wanting to close the borders early, or Fauci saying that nobody needs to wear masks, then keeping the lockdowns so strict, praising rioting, releasing criminals, and defunding the police to the point where there is now a mass exodus out of California and New York. Can’t wait for Biden to finally become president. It’ll be hilarious.
