    Traitors gonna traitor.

  2. When the World pushes back… Let it be known!! – I DO NOT STAND WITH TRUMP.

  3. Is that the art of the deal??…sell your country out

    • @FAH Q wouldnt he be a racist if he refused to do bussiness with a foreign country? There is a difference between doing business and selling us out.

    • @joe the problem with that is business is give and take,buy or sell! Especially when he uses the presidency as his own private negotiations…..we need diplomacy! That’s the problem with Putin…hes a communist at heart….that’s also the problem with trump….trump doesnt know how to be diplomatic….instead he starts threatening and abuses his power to get his way…..and his interests aren’t necessarily in our country’s foreign policy…..when he is on that stage ,on tv, anywhere in the public eye….hes supposed to represent US….he only represents himself and his donors

    • @FAH Q i disagree. but if thats the way you see it that is fine. russia russia russia thats all you people can talk about

    • @joe trump is an aspiring dictator….Russia isnt helping him get reelected for nothing…..

    • ​@FAH Q lol you are pretty far out there my guy.

  4. How can Anyone in the USA be so blind and deaf to trump? HOW?

    • all the people here have a large delusion that they think they are apart of something big and that their opinion matters, goodbye.

    • How can someone be so blind to ignorant, racist, pandering democrats?! How how?
      “ I don’t want kids to grow in up in a racial jungle”
      “ white kids are just as smart as minority kids”
      If ain’t voting for me u aim black”
      -the same man who wrote crimes bill targeting black community and in favor of segregation

    • That is how white supremacy works. They will accept ANYTHING as long as you say it is keeping the black man in his place. That is about 30% of US whites.

      See : “CULT ( of personality )” – “Dictatorial Strongman” – “Concerted Party Propaganda” – ” Religious Dementia ” – ” Demagogue ” – ” The Third Reich ” – ” Joseph Goebbels ” – ” Populism ” – and LOTS of low IQ – low information – mis-informed – ill-informed – apathetic – lazy – irrational – delusional – nonsensical – racist – bigoted – angry MAGA morons running around free – and not in prison or mental hospitals. And most of them are gun nuts as well.

    • Tominator 6 so what if true trump is a dickhead not fit to run the country

  5. And the Australian military are furious as it belies the fact that our troops were killed as your allies!

      Omg just awful!! He is such a sick, selfish, evil person. I knew about him very well through the years before….and I can proudly tell you that I never voted for this monster!!! Was totally shocked he barely got in. Even with the popular vote going to Hillary. Very sorry to all our great allies, hun.. 😞🙏
      I just pray, very hard, that he will be thoroughly kicked to the curb soon. I just worry, re how much Russian involvement there may be re the votes this time, and his Admin’s own ways of voter suppression of what they’re doing with the post office etc. I never saw any past President act so desperate, and try and do almost anything, to get voted back in! That truly means he knows he’s being protected by his presidential status. Because once he’s not president, boom! He’s going to have a world of troubles legally, w court cases, charges etc.

    • Nobody asked you to play the role of “deputy sheriff of the USA in Asia” !!

    • @Stanley Wong Yes they did. Australia is a small country in population and when America says “jump!” our politicians say “how high?”. We have treaties and where America goes we are expected to follow.

  6. This is what you usually call surrender by the US to the Taliban.

    • Bull. It’s called continuing the work with the Taliban & there will probably be another burning of a cult somewhere to pass blame on the unsuspecting suckers that fell for thier deceptive religion the Trump cult has been using.
      The religious cult thing and this go together.

  7. Every time I think Trump can’t stoop any lower, he finds a way to prove me wrong.

  8. oh my God, this is sickening…

  9. That they insited that they be released on the eve of 9/11 makes it even worse

  10. How much more can we take?
    They have looted the coffers…
    I’m amazed this……is still in office

    • Ruby Clark Who has “looted the coffers”?? You mean the ‘swamp dwellers’ that are Congress, which Joe Biden was a part of for 36 YEARS!!!! They are the ones that make laws, including tax laws that benefit them and their rich friends. Congress that had keep a tax payer funded ‘slush fund’ to pay off people for their sexual assaults/harassment exploits. You mean Congress that spends millions of taxpayer dollars on endless investigations that they know will end up being a waste of time and only enrich their lawyer friends. You mean Congress, that makes budgets and bills that waste BILLIONS and BILLIONS of OUR taxpayer dollars for ‘pork’ projects and even gives millions to organizations such as Planned Parenthood which, in turn, gives millions our our taxpayer dollars right back to the same people as campaign contributions!! So your “is still in office” must mean Congress???

  11. I guess Trump wanted the release of the Taliban prisoners that killed the US soldiers to collect the bounty from Putin.

  12. No wonder trump is keeping his taxes a secret- he’s got a lot to hide- . 🤷‍♀️ and it just keep piling up – remind the Americans why the republicans in senate insisted he deserved to RUN FOR A SECOND TERM ?

    Every enemy and terrorists group toward America Trump has aligned himself with them. Everyone of them.

    • And he’s dissed all of the US’s allies, while ripping up every agreement and treaty he got his greedy little paws on. America has been banned entry to most countries on the planet because of him and his filthy administration.

    • He has a reason. And it ain’t good.

    • @SkyGemini Uh… we are banned because of COVID not what Trump has done. What trying to make peace with the worst enemies of our country? Pulling troops put of a senseless war? De escalating the tensions between these powers around the world? Insulting the people with nukes pointed at us? It’s easy to sit behind a keyboard and call the man a coward for doing a balancing act to keep the world together. Really brave.

    “We do NOT negotiate with terrorists.” And now, we are? Wow…

    • Jeffrey Thornburg | September 12, 2020 at 5:38 PM | Reply

      We are letting terrorist run wild in our streets. Don’t know what you are talking about

    • MrArchangel73521 | September 12, 2020 at 7:48 PM | Reply

      No negotiations (pressure)…to just let them go !!!

    • @Jeffrey Thornburg the police? Agreed, they’re horrible.

      ​@Noob and Friends What a load of crock, pal.
      First of all the “freedom Fighters” were the Mujaheddin. Taliban are an aftermath of that, the literal minded extremist sect that took power after the Russians were pushed out of the country and turned it into the islamic version of the handmaid’s tale there.
      Secondly… it was not just leftists calling them that, that#s the right wing word you absolute imbecile. Bush and the CIA pushed helping them to “free” the country from the Russians WAY before what was chiq in protesting and supporting “independence movements” started involving Afghanistan.
      Thirdly … and it might be a stretch for your mental capabilities, but you MIGHT remember a little thing called 9/11 where a taliban supported group named Al Quaida attacked the US and the response started a now 18 year long war in Afghanistan, mostly struggling to take areas out of the control of either warlords OR the taliban and putting them into quasi democratic hands. That kind of turned them the enemy and very few people are insane enough to call resistance to that “freedom fighting” in the 2010s, whatever the thinktanks and pundit farms you use instead of thinking yourself have told you.

      You should try to come back tentatively into reality, it’s nice here, much nicer than into the paranoia filled hellscape YOUR mind is living in.

    • @Jeffrey Thornburg they called uneducated republicans, not terrorists.

  15. Wait so he calls americans terrorists and calls taliban to have a cup of tea with Pompeo?

  16. We barely remember when we called him ‘Taliban Trump’, it happened so many scandals ago and 200,000 lost Americans ago.

  17. And he jails American protesters!!! I think it’s safe to say that the president is Anti American !!!

  18. I’m surprised Trump didn’t invite the Taliban to the 9/11 memorial.

    • He sure as — would have

    • Anyone else remember that trump tried last year to bring them to Camp David for a “meeting” on 9/11 but there was so much outcry against it he had to drop it. There has to be a reason for wanting to do it on this date just like last year! Something really bad is underneath it! We must do all we can to stop it! Vote Blue all the way 2020!

    • why would you be? the taliban didnt order 9/11, that was al qaeda. those two are completely different groups

  19. This would be shocking at any other time and with any other president.

  20. Daily Question: Why is Trump still in the White House posing as America’s President ?

    • Ice 247 better question, why didn’t the senate do their job and remove him after he was impeached. Why hasn’t the twenty fifth amendment been put into motion? Because they’re laughing their way to the bank on the backs of the citizens.
