    ” When someone tells you who they are , believe them “, a wise lady once said .
    Trump only cares about himself and his money .

      @ Liberal in Oklahoma … You’re right. Where he comes up short (pun intended) is he can’t buy health or breath or another minute if/when his ticket gets punched. In that regard, he’s just like the rest of us–despite his beliefs to the contrary.

    • In tRumps own words, “You knew I was a snake before you let me in.”

      @blewis9505 beal You are just like Trump? Maybe there is hope for you yet!

    • My mama always used to tell me a quote from John Ray, “If you give someone enough rope, they’ll hang themselves.” Let Trump keep blubbering and spewing. Trump is his own demise.

    • Why is he serving America for free then? Not for money but for love of country.

    Republicans have clearly stated where they stand when they refused to do
    due diligence and refused to convict Trump of his crimes , vote them out too.

    • @David Eby You don’t know anything about me PERIOD. It’s people like you who label people. I have voted on both sides. Now when you present some facts we can talk. Until then, you can rant by yourself. I will give you some facts…Trump is a racist, a liar, a cheat and a narcissist. All in which I can prove because much has come from his own mouth. Only a fool would listen to ignorance and support it.

    • @David Eby I am still waiting for the facts of why you think he is amazing. Stop ranting and show the proof.

    • @David EbyLet’s see all of these accomplishments that are all the more amazing……..

    • @The ArkYou’ve voted both sides,well are’nt you special?Who hasn’t?Pres.Trump gave us the best economy in history with record unemployment for minorities. Obama/Biden didn’t care to do that for Blacks.He’s the only President in generations not to start a war. Obama/Biden had the longest administration in continual war. What about terrorism? Pres.Trump made worrying about Islamic terrorism a thing of the past. Yes,we can actually say the words Islamic terrorism.

      not to mention their refusal to lift a finger to help those Americans who are without jobs, shelter, food, and unemployment benefits, I mean I understand giving the unemployment benefits an increase but that completely disregards all those whose benefits have run out or part time workers who do not qualify for benefits at all. There are real people experiencing real hunger in this country right now, and Trump sits in his ivory tower or golfs at his resort oblivious to the suffering of others, just like Hitler, he has no empathy for anyone, only poor misunderstood Trump. Makes me so angry it’s scary.

  3. Vote because our lives depend on it at this point…He doesn’t care about anyone but himself…!!!

  4. “I cannot tell a lie.” – George Washington
    “I cannot tell the truth.” – Donald Trump
    “I cannot tell the difference.” – Republican leaders

  5. The GOP is culpable in all of this! A person elected to represent the country, they must understand that “Country” comes before party!

  6. When he says “Panic” the president is referring to the Stockmarket – look at the timeline he was more worried about the Stockmarket more then peoples lives back then.

    • Absolutely, the (fake) stockmarket was his lifeline, he can’t give it up so easily.


    • @may wilson but I bet he will want somebody to vote for those dead people in a few weeks. I cannot believe but I am living in a country with this kind of dictatorship in the office. After everything that has come out in just the last two weeks is very very disturbing for the US. How bar had that one guy murdered by the National Guard how Stone is coming out saying people in Nevada should have their votes taken away, and have National Guards and FBI agents at the voting booth to intimidate voters. He has turned the us into a third world shitwhole country, and he seems to be so proud of it. ‘Look daddy, look what I did!” As his father is looking up at him.
      Only a damaged person would want to damage others.

    • Then or NOW

    • @Claudette J don’t forget ICE detainees STERILIZED for no good reason … history repeats itself .. look at Native Americans now after centuries of “genocide” .. it’s what’s planned for us all who are not in Trump’s cult following .. and probably he will start with his base next

  7. Let’s sing together: “You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.” …

    • Let me put it another way. Trump is a gotdam fool.

      @IG Dimes No argument there!

    • just time for another….yes thats true…abraham lincoln said that…and he
      was republican also…u must have heard pres trump repeat that lately…
      i like it that ppl that have been parrots for so long can finally sing together tho… good job..u practice some more…and maybe u make choir….hah

    • That’s why God always looking for child’s & Fool’s.🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

    • @Elliott Michaels That’s why abortion must be illegal. So don’t fool your self.🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏

  8. Wealth privilege is insulating him from his ability to comprehend reality.

    • @John Smith you have failed to explain what exactly is that privilege

    • If wealth privilege wasn’t real poor people wouldn’t be hurting each other for new shoes

    • GABRIEL S You literally just described white privilege perfectly. Black people experience discrimination in various ways, shapes and forms every day while you’ve managed to never be discriminated ONCE??? IN YOUR LIFE??? You would understand how it felt if you had to cross the street when an old white lady is on the same sidewalk as you late at night, or if every single job you applied to rejects you just for your name, or makes you jump through extra hoops to prove your worth if you actually manage to get the job. You would understand if police stopped you for no good reason like they stopped me and like they stop other black people every single day. I’m lucky to have my life but there are so many people who looked like me that haven’t made it to this day JUST for the color of their skin. That’s your privilege.

      ​@rishard daniels Privilege:

      *” You would understand how it felt if you had to cross the street when an old white lady is on the same sidewalk as you late at night”* – This right here is a male issue, not a black issue, it’s straight up sexism against men.

      *”or if every single job you applied to rejects you just for your name”* – This is name discrimination, nothing to do with race, you can have Blacks named Washington and they’ll be called back.

      *”or makes you jump through extra hoops to prove your worth if you actually manage to get the job.”* – Actually affirmative action, which is essentially racism written into law. Makes it so that you get a lot of advantages because youre Black. Sports are just easier, we are naturally stronger, faster and better than White people physically. We need less grades to get into universities, we have scholarships just for being Black.

      *” You would understand if police stopped you for no good reason like they stopped me and like they stop other black people every single day.”* – I’m black and I’ve never had a bad run in with cops, however A: It’s left wing states that have laws that allow this for some reason. B. When one race commits nearly half the crime in America, it sort of makes sense. It’s not racism, sadly it’s just good math.

      *” I’m lucky to have my life but there are so many people who looked like me that haven’t made it to this day JUST for the color of their skin. That’s your privilege.”* – You sound like you are just trying to place blame on others when it’s you yourself thats causing trouble and trying to make your race a factor, be a good person, do good, focus on being a human and not a skin color.

      Billy Two Cents Smh you’re on the wrong side of the argument man. And just because you’ve never had a bad encounter doesn’t mean that they don’t happen frequently and disproportionately. I’ve worked hard for every single thing that i’ve achieved and not every black person is an athlete who can get into college for free. We have scholarships just for being black because the majority of the population is white and so many higher educational institutions in america started off segregated and even when integration cane into play, black people were discriminated against. I’ve NEVER committed a crime or even been around criminals and yet time and time again i’ve been illegally detained. You’re making progress harder for the rest of us.

  9. This election is becoming a soap opera. As the president’s turn.

    • I’m not a Biden fan or Trump fan. So after 40 years of voting. I’m sitting this one out. So like I said it don’t matter who gets in. We are screw.

    • @James Poore We just have to choose the lesser evil.

    • Jim Flatwood so what? These changes are obvious and have needed changed for a long time.
      Biden is not the president, what do you think a not president to do?
      Biden’s America is not being violent, trump is still running this show.
      Statistics show that the radical right wing is more violent than the radical left.
      I think trumps affiliation with q-anon is almost comical if it weren’t so weird.

    • @James Poore that is exactly how Trump won the first time. I’m not thrilled with Biden either, but do you understand how Trump is undermining our Democracy for his own personal profit and gain?? And if he’s reelected he plans to stay for another 4 years then legacy his kids into the position. He is beyond dangerous and he has to be stopped. Now is not the time to opt out. Please vote, don’t sit this one out, our founding fathers are counting on us to preserve our constitution.

    • @Jim Flatwood I don’t have time to vet all of the items in your comment, but he signed First Step because it’s profitable for and assists private prisons. He’s not doing anything for Black Americans. He’s making decisions that benefit him and occasionally the Black community benefits. Because even a broken clock is right twice a day.

  10. Words from his own mouth. What more can you say. Wake up! Vote Nov 03 2020 President Biden!!!!

    • Please don’t vote for Biden. But ya lets hope Trump retires and becomes a political comedian for Comedy Central.. he would make a better clown / standup comedian (even overpaid who cares how much it costs just offer him a show).

    This book and Mary Trump’s book should be enough to vote blue!

      @Judy DeBonis why arent we talking about joe biden ” poor children are just as smart as white children.” Or the fact Biden voted for segregation. He is a racist. The donkeys are so desperate for this election.

      @PJ Angels lol, it wouldn’t be much different

    • oh plz…mary trump…i was scared until i saw her and she opened mouth…

    • Mr.Trump 2020.🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  12. Who Cares ? Half of America think tinfoil hats protect them from everything !

  13. The Cool-Aid line was hilarious, this guy doesn’t think he grew up privileged, he needs a Cat Scan

    • @Flex Ruger …you have enjoyed it all your life ..white privilege is just like welfare …the government knows you and white people are unable and unwilling to compete in a equal ..fair and just society so we the government will assist you …it will be known as “white privilege” …you must never admit it exist .. Government white privilege will provide you ..preference and choice over all others in every area of society …and protection from discrimination in all areas of society must never admit it exist ..😱 ..without it ..considering your ignorant comment would most likely be saying ..” welcome to Mcdonald’s” …

    • rishard daniels | September 16, 2020 at 9:52 AM | Reply

      Flex Ruger And why do you think that he had the privilege of having all that money? Because his father was afforded opportunities that black people could never even dream of at the time. White privilege is the fact that black people spent hundreds of years enslaved in this country just for them to be treated inhumanely and without the rights that humans and citizens deserve. If you look at every single area of poverty in america, i can guarantee that a large percent of those areas coincide with areas know for slave labor. Slavery ravaged the people who ACTUALLY BUILT THIS COUNTRY and then decades later we “become citizens,” only to have the law used to keep black people from prospering financially. Your white privilege is the fact that white people have had the majority of control and the majority of money for the entire history of the united states. If you can’t see that, that’s on you man, because the rest of the country and the rest of the world is progressing without you, and frankly you aren’t needed.

      He/ it needs a hot date with Madame Guillotine ! ……………….

    • The Kool-Aid comment was a reference to the Jonestown tragedy because he conned all his followers into believing what he said. Trump is the same kind of leader, a con.

    • Ralf Häggström | September 16, 2020 at 6:23 PM | Reply

      @Sheila Rhoades Of course, the trump-cult id Fatal ! ……………

  14. Narcissists easily discount the feelings, concerns and needs of others, so not surprising.

    “You really drank the kool-aid”. Another racist remark when talking about race

    • I don’t know if it was intended to be referring to race but i wouldn’t put it past him. The term’s original meaning had to do with a cult that poisoned themselves with an off brand version of kool-aid so they could meet their alien gods…so the term means that “Oh you really bought into that crazy conspiracy” basically

    If Trump had to face the dilemma of being himself he would deny knowledge of himself.

      @Edgardo Rosa i like how you probably wouldnt get in a ring with out a fire arm and you go around as a keyboard warrior defending cadet bone spurs.

  17. Just because T-rump says he’s done a lot – excuse me, “more for the black community than another president ” lol doesn’t make it true! 🤪🤣🤣

  18. The problem is, though…Donald isn’t actually WHITE… he’s orange

  19. This president is the Jim Jones to his supporters. Maybe the president should drink the Koolaid

  20. Trump only needs your vote, he doesn’t need you.
