  1. Trump turned off the lights in the White House and hid in the basement. Now he’s talking tough to compensate.

      @Supre Macy china and russia are allies in trade because they are neighbours which makes sense. im from europe and i would love to see that we break up trade with murica.

    • Annihilate MAGA Cult … yeah but we need to make sure we are not relying on either. Both greedy and neither care about the world. Regardless of what they say. China has been telling the US to stay out of HK issues, well now China in retaliation wants to bring the US protests to the human rights commission, so now they want to involve themselves with US issues after saying they never concern themselves with other countries. I’m tired of both, and both have shown me they can’t be trusted.

      @Supre Macy trump does not have a China problem. That is a charade. It has been this whole time.

    • Constituent A … why’s that?

  8. When in the entirity of US history has a President ever had to cower in a bunker because his own constituants were rioting outside?

    • @Mike Malveaux Well cited and said!! Poor Trump never got his Purple Heart for his ‘bone spurs’ so he’s starting a civil war.

    • This is the same coward who dodged the draft with “bone spurs” after his daddy made some calls. This is the pathetic loser that Republican men idolize for being “alpha” LMFAO. A coward President who hides in a bunker protected by secret service being people are protesting. It’s so pathetic and sad

      Impeachment worked, thanks to senate he was not removed and actually figured he could get away with anything with their blessings
      Now, if any of them have any guts they need to join Dems and come up with a plan NOW. November might be too late
      Another 100,000 dead and his little army ready to protect him from election results
      10 years ago if another leader of a democratic country acted like he did…. killing off its own citizens….. US, and other developed countries might jump in🇨🇦

      @Llewellyn Kereiff how is he killing off his own citizens

    • Llewellyn Kereiff | June 2, 2020 at 9:34 PM | Reply

      Alex Anzivino Incompetency handling the virus. Did you know….. Vietnam had 0 deaths
      New Zealand 22
      Both started dealing with it in January while Trump was calling it a hoax ( despite being told it was coming) golfing and holding rallies. Even now he refused to test- trace- quarantine….as did Vietnam. and New Zealand
      In about 17 states, since he insisted on opening things like churches, restaurants, salons
      It is back and victim numbers on the rise
      He claims to support peaceful protest and yet rubber bullets, tear gas etc used to disperse peaceful gathering so he could have a phony photo op in front of a church- not where he spends his Sunday’s- holding a bible- which he has never read
      And is currently threatening to sic the military anywhere he wants
      Expect virus to claim another 100,000+ lives by the end of the year
      Also a misguided murder of an Iranian ( ISIS was actually making plans to attack embassies, not Iran) resulted in 279 civilians ( including families with young children) was blown out of the sky
      Children have died waiting in cages. Anyone know their current status?
      Do you really need more? What about Kurdish civilians slaughtered when his buddy from Turkey asked him to move troops out of Syria…. instead of making a plan, he tweeted
      Added bonus…. ISIS has been given a new lease on life thanks to his stupidity
      You may well be on the verge of civil war. Wake up for god’s sake 🇨🇦

      My guess is they’re out stocking up on ammo, except for Kamala Harris, Val Demmings and the mayor of Atlanta whose name escapes me – they need to be available for tv appearances because they are all being media tested to see who gets the best responses as they are all potential VP picks. Moscow Mickey Doodle-doo is in hiding, and he won’t be out unless Donnie needs him to push some nonsense through the Senate. The guys with the hammers breaking storefront glass are the Proud Boys. They won’t actually steal anything – they actually have decent paying jobs and are just there as instigators of damage. Most of the physical looting is probably done by people who need the money they can get from selling the merchandise, the Proud Boys just break the glass to provide the opportunity and then leave. The object is for the protestors to be blamed for all the damage, after all. The Proud Boys are a part of Roger Stone’s ‘political dirty tricks’ network.

Jim Jones deceived masses but now exponentially capable of greater harm and bloodshed. They have replaced their faith in, and worship of, Jesus with Antichrist Trump, their new “savior.”

      Yep, he and his worms did promise before the 2016 election, and yes, this is it. It’s already begun really. Floyd’s death was a convenient happenstance for him. Those guys with the hammers breaking storefront glass aren’t ‘protestors’, or BLM, and there’s no such thing as ‘Antifa’. They’re Roger Stone’s Proud Boys. Thank God Stone was arrested during this term, or I never would have known who they were, and might have actually fallen for the ‘violent protestors’ scam. They’re working for trump, make no mistake about it. So anyway, thank you for the well-wishes. Same team that won last time will again this time. And if you read the Book of Revelations, you’ll learn who wins in the end. It’s all good.

    your constitution by sending armed military forces against civilians
    without consent of the governors… why the heck don’t the governors of

    siege to the WH to end this farce? Just asking for a friend.

      CNN, Not to get political. Just to understands peoples thinking, and strategies. CNN hasn’t figures that Russia is thinking for him. Why,? He’s doing what he’s told to do. Clue: no paper voting. Why: because harder to control or rig elections by Russia maybe. Clue: Speak wiith Vladimir Putin and shortly after you hear doninate, jail for 10 years, laughing stock, and see them do ehst they did to clear the side walks. When people violate corona curfew in russia didn’t Russia reportedly jail them for 7 years. The list goes on. Trump calls governors weak and tells them to dominate the protesters, and Chief of Police tells trump to keep his mouth Shut; and basically for protesters to Vote Trump Out, and others like him.
      The strategy and thinking may be to keep young people distracted so as not to register.
      It makes one wonder the minds of how people think, or not. Follow emotion, and are distracted, wanting others to figure things out for them, with doing what will really matter. This goes in many aspects of life regardless of politics is the point. People can’t see what’s in plain sight. Exam: police sitting on the road clocking speeders. He’s right there but you dont see him until after you’ve been clocked. Why? Because people are distracted, not expecting, not paying attention. Note: You don’t see what’s in front of you.
      So there are so many protesters at the protest. No one brings papers and pens to sign up to register to make a change in a few months, but the yell and destroy. Yep. Just keep doing that. You’ll really be yelling and screaming. Lol

    “Coast to coast, wherever he wants to, wherever he feels like he needs to.” Trump’s dream come true?
    He’s scared shitless. First the pandemic rattled his delusion of being in control, and now this. He sees the protests as a direct, personal threat.
    Unfortunately, his base are right there with him.

      CTM not all of them are liberal, you just don’t like their points of view, a centrist can sound like a liberal sometimes, Fox News is the biggest propaganda out there , nothing truthful ever. I’m a centrist I like some (yes some) conservative ideals as well as some liberal ideals, but supporting somebody like Trump is just plain stupidity, there are 100s of capable Republicans out there, why this man child? Will tell you why, because of his racism , no too way about it, I’m sorry but supporting him is supporting racism and that makes you a racist in my book.

    • @Carl Jackson oh yeah right so CNN ABC CBS NBC MSNBC are not liberal propaganda and it’s only Fox News according to you? You’re registered Democrat obviously your bias and you refuse to accept that because you listen to those networks correct right?

      Anglo telling the truth doesn’t make you a liberal, neither is been civil, hatred isn’t the Republican motto, seem you prefer lies. One station telling nothing but lies is enough methink. Fox can be a good conservative station if they just cut unnecessary lies out, I don’t mind difference of opinions but blatant lies as if the viewers has gotten nothing upstairs is a big no. How does this current video makes you a liberal, a constitution passage was quoted and analysed. Tell me if there’s anything not American about it?
