  1. That will never, ever happen under Trump! He is more interested in bailing out large corporations…like hotels and casinos and the oil sector. Good luck!

    • Bailout = Socialism in action.
      To make the claim that USA is capitalistic and Europe is socialistic is pathetic since USA use the bailout tool much more that it is used in Europe.
      USA is nothing but a pretend capitalistic republic that turns socialistic during bad times.

    I hear there is a cure for covid 45 coming in november.

  6. t’rump on Feb 28: “This is an over-reaction and a hoax.”
    t’rump on Mar 16: “I always knew this was a pandemic, even before people called it one.”

      @Troy Stocker Travel bans never work in a pandemic. They might delay things for a week or a month, but that’s it. Educate yourself. Learn what epidemiologists have to say about travel bans rather than listening to Fox News.

    • Mexico has now asked how quickly USA can complete that wall 😂🤣😂

    • @Troy Stocker Remember, the travel ban was next to useless.

      Or did you not realize how easy it is simply just get a connector flight to the US from some other country.

      And Why Should Your President and Congress STOP LYING NOW⁉️
      They know U Still ain’t Awake.

      Now the Republicans are still supporting their brand of Socialism
      While the PEOPLE ARE STILL IN CAPTIVITY locked Down….

      Clones & Robots Who Are also in Captivity,
      Are too Stupid to Understand, THAT NOTHING WILL BE PRODUCED


      SOCIALIZING IS About Talking Together & MIXING RACES for PEACE & Prosperity
      NOT Throwing Crumbs at the HUNGRY, when Everybody is Hungry…🐀

      But Those Who Are Thinking About Entitlements🤮, Are loading up their Guns
      To Protect What they Think & Thought they Owned the Gold Which is Now Useless

      And the Drones Are Going To Have a Field Day,
      TO HELP THE Virus with the CLEANSING Process
      While the pigs & piggies try to Hide, Not Knowing that they too are being Watched.

      A Successful Population Control PLAN is In Process
      & NO MORE DISCRIMINATING 🙌🤓Between RACISM or Wealth

      FOR GOOD, with

      No More Old White Capitalists over 40 to be Worshiped
      No More Religions and false gods as Rulers
      No More Exploitation or Greed since Money won’t be Able to Buy Anything Made in America
      With No More Flights in the sky or No More Boats on the Oceans to Escape, Whats overdue …

      If Not DUMBER ☠️on 🔥

  14. Bribes from a corrupt president

  15. CONGRATS, to all those who saw this coming. We knew childish things like, kneeling at football games, and “BE BEST” was just a$$-clown-buffonery. But we knew he was dangerous, and tried to get rid of him via impeachment, but the GOP led Senate said, “Nah…lets wait for Nov, when people can vote”. And NOW look at us – the entire nation turned into a ghost town. So, when you get your ballot for Senator…keep this in mind.

  16. In two weeks we will be wishing that the federal government had called for a nationwide shutdown and quarantined the entire country instead of leaving it up to the individual states and local governments. In the past two weeks, the Coronavirus has grown at a rate of approximately 100 fold. Two weeks ago we had approximately 100 confirmed cases and we have almost 10,000 confirmed cases today and in two more weeks it could be so large that it forces the federal government to call for a national shutdown and we will have lost two weeks, infected so many. many more people and watched so many more people die, needlessly! Look at China and Italy, a nationwide shutdown is inevitable and the longer the federal government waits for the more that people and businesses will suffer and the more people who will die!

  17. The likes of Trump and the various other Republicans that literally bought themselves into office have been taking the working class for granted. I just wish they were smart enough to realize it.

  18. The only bills he has ever were to Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal😂😂😂

  19. The recession in2008 actually for the working class started over a year before it was labeled a recession! We’re into one now for the past year if you’re blue collar!

  20. *This Trump WH acted far too slowly and continue to fumble, lie and assign blame while trying to cover their own complete ineptness!*
    *This was NEVER a Hoax…The only ‘Hoax’ in this whole sad story is Trump himself! 😡*
