  1. Imagine an MIT student from India having to connect at 2am for a class. Stupid!

      @ihave35cents Right, I work IT for a global company. Folks from India are far more educated than we are here in the US.

      Jeremy Backup so what you’re saying is that we shouldn’t educate Indians in the US for a while until we catch up. Word up

    • How about the student from Ghana whose home village doesn’t have electricity or internet!

    • ihave35cents | July 14, 2020 at 7:11 PM | Reply

      @Jeremy Backup yeah billion people trying to get out of poverty. And I hang out with a few Indians I’m way smarter than them so stop a lumping people

      @Jeremy Backup you said you were educated but I am a plumber never finished high school and I make a half a million a year with a 25-man crew. All different types of smart. My father was a painting contractor to retired at 47 years old with a 5 million-dollar estate

  2. Once again, Dumpy backs down when faced with the slightest pushback. He’s such a coward.

    • CalmDownBruh | July 14, 2020 at 5:04 PM | Reply

      I think I can hear him running back to his bunker with Twitter opened on his phone.

    • Speaking seriously, is there anyone here who thinks Trump is so cowardly that when faced with defeat in an electoral landslide and the prospect of imprisonment that he would take his own life rather than face the consequences of his actions?

      @mechaman13 you’re dumb…
      GOD I can’t wait for Durham and Horowitz to come back….

    • @Don Hardcastle I am being totally serious here. When things go south for him, whether it is in one of his many failed deals or business ideas, he always cuts and runs. Considering that he also (potentially) owes a lot of money to some unsavory people who could be more punitive than US law enforcement, being silent might be an option. Then again, maybe dealing with US law enforcement might be better as you get to live.

    • @mechaman13 How many times did you contemplate ending your life when faced with a challenge ? If you haven’t, why do you assume Trump would ?

  3. 🗽cognitive test my A💰💰 …I heard …people are sayin, …it was prostate exam, and he wanted pictures to prove to his detractors that his head was NOT up there….Don’t just sit there…get out and vote…don’t matter who, you pick… 🗽🗽VOTE!🗽🗽

  4. The IRS is demanding billions in income tax payments TOMORROW from Independent Contractors that are still waiting for Unemployment Benefits from states like Oregon and Washington. People bring some attention to this, as we need help.

  5. Of course the backed off! They’re desperate for votes! They’re jumping through fire lit hoops right now!

    • ihave35cents | July 14, 2020 at 5:30 PM | Reply

      Those people can’t vote what the f*** are you talking about

    • ihave35cents Hey stupid I never said those people can vote, what I said is that the Trump administration is jumping through hoops by backing down trying to look reasonable in front of foreign descent Americans to get their votes, but we all know Benedict Donald is a bully & will change his mind every time he colors his topae & your IQ is too low to compute!

    RESIGN Sec-State-PUNK.
    RESIGN, Pentagon PUNK.
    RESIGN, Sec-Ed-Trollop.

    COVID-45 is killing us.

    Another fail from Trump & Co.

  8. Clearly none in this administration knows what they’re doing

      Every man has a right to his own opinion, but no man has a right to be wrong in his facts

      Abdulai Bah Every man has a right to his own opinion, but no man has a right to be wrong in his facts

    • @YouRuse is A leftist org …so you are saying that “they do know what they are doing”… okay well that makes this much worse of a situation if they are doing it while “knowing what they are doing”… That makes them culpable.

    • Never have, never will. ….

    • Colleges must have asked for federal assistance because of Covid. Trump just made them to set their house in order. Now colleges can’t complain because they got what they wanted. And with no flights, everyone knew foreign students won’t be deported

    👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 Foreign Students pay in full. They become a part of our communities and add to the economy! Isn’t this ALL Trump cares for? The Economy that he single handedly destroyed?! Save lives, better economy. Stimulus/Aid, better economy. Reinvest, better economy! Vote BLUE, Better Economy!

    This stupid idea brought to you by Stephen Miller.

    • @SweetBizou – you are a bigot

    • Europe sent all of their foreign students home in March

    • MsJollycholly | July 14, 2020 at 5:47 PM | Reply

      His friends call him “Nosferatu”, even with his new Chia Pet scalp

    • MsJollycholly | July 14, 2020 at 5:50 PM | Reply

      @Ron Swanson ‘Europe sent’ is not the same from this bungled idea which clearly fell on it’s own sword. I think you can appreciate the difference and actually many European students remain here.

    • @MsJollycholly – uugghh. You have no idea about this, do you? Get over it. You believed stupid propaganda again and you were told again. What you are feeling is cognitive dissonance. Just shut up and take your punishment. Sheesh!

    The Magic 8-Ball that Trump uses to guide his decision making has sprung a leak.

  12. Humanity/common sense…1.
    Orange bunker boy……ZERO!


    • Trump’s 2016 slogan should of been “keep america great”
      Biden’s slogan in 2020 should be “make america great again”

  14. Has Stephen Miller written all over it.

    Watch, in a day or two Trump will claim that he saved foriegn students from deportation.

    • @Albert Green I don’t know you. I care about humans: foreigners, US born, and even you – all of us.

    • Albert Green Just cause I care about other people too means I have more allegiance for other countries?i obviously care about Americans

    • Yes he saved them from deportation. And those foreign students who had taken part in those protests better focus on their education rather than activism on campuses.

    • @Gorra solar- no you don’t. You won’t take them into your home so please shut up.

    • Ron Swanson I would take them into my home if they needed help as people have taken me in at a time of need 🤷🏻‍♂️ me and you are obviously not the same

    They threatened Trump to release his grades?

    • MsJollycholly | July 14, 2020 at 5:55 PM | Reply

      they’re already out there from Fordham _ a solid ‘D’ student. DUNCE – then and NOW. Can you imagine SUING your college so that your grades are kept secret? And then GETTING THE JOB?! Try that on your next interview! This man was NEVER Elected. He’s right about the fake votes in 2016 – they were ALL FOR HIM!

    another BLACK EYE for the Trump administration..

    Steven Killer is angry.

  19. He’s trying to win back votes?

    Another complete and useless failure by the Trump administration.
