  1. Trump’s greatest enemy is the American people. His second greatest enemy is the English language.

      Eli Dicken which conspiracy theory’s platform did you get this priceless tidbit? People in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.

      david thomas I replied that too! Amazing these trolls never doubt their spelling or usage abilities so they don’t need a dictionary that’s online!

      Eli Dicken police violence is great until they, or someone they live, is killed or nearly killed by that same violence! But, as usual, they believe it will NEVER happen to them or theirs.

      SouthSide Chicago apparently you are unaware that most veterans DO NOT support Trump. You delusion of who has the majority needs readdressing. And another tip: Trump bailing out the elite, millionaire and corporate farmers due to Trumps FAILURE to get a “better trade deal” is SOCIALISM! Not saying they didn’t need it just letting you know it’s a perfect example of socialism!!

      @SouthSide Chicago You wouldn’t know a stock from a bagel you ignorant human turd.

      Every day I think things will calm down, and every day; I’m disappointed…😣

    • @SouthSide Chicago…Oh yeah, 4,121 deaths from COVID in the last 7 days is nothing. 132,832 deaths in the last four months…no worries. NASDAQ?…yeah, it’s up, but DOLT45 had nothing to do with it. If you think I’m wrong…please by all means explain how Trump had ANYTHING to do with the NASDAQ?
      Trump IS responsible for the stock market crash…his bumbling of the pandemic response is 100% at fault.
      But whatever happens during 2021, it will have NOTHING to do with Trump. He won’t be president in 2021…except maybe president of the inmates association at a nearby federal correctional facility.

    • @Mr Jones word.

    • There is no bottom for him. The bottom is looking down on him right now.

  3. Donald Trump IS the radical idealogy attacking America and he MUST go if we want to preserve American Democracy and the American Constitution!

    • Truth Ninja | July 6, 2020 at 9:12 PM | Reply

      If the Democrats win the presidency, kiss the Constitution good-bye…

    • @Truth Ninja You are very confused. Just another Republican projection as it is Donald Trump who has been attacking the Constitution, the American court system, American judges, and the Rule of Law in America. How much do you get paid to act as a Trump Troll and spread pro-Trump propaganda?

    • Yamile Moya | July 6, 2020 at 9:47 PM | Reply

      Rick Ammon LISTEN ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS VOTE BIDEN IF YOU HATE USA 🇺🇸 IF YOU HATE YOUR LIFE, IF YOU HATE YOUR BANK ACCT, IF YOU HATE YOUR FREEDOM BC W HIM AND HIS PARTY I GUARANTEE YOU, YOU WILL NOT HAVE ANYTHING TO HATE

    • @untseac the day trump dies.

    • @Rick Ammon The only people I’ve seen attacking the Constitution lately are the Dems. But idiots like you are their target audience, so…

  4. Peter Hallett | July 6, 2020 at 3:05 PM | Reply

    Race and the Confederate flag. It’s unfortunate that the ‘enemy’ is other Americans. Vote people.

  5. Either t’rump is afraid to lose the large portion of his base that are white nationalists or he is one himself.
    I’ll let y’all decided which. 😅😂

    • He already has the support of the racists and white nationalists who vote. But he realizes it’s not enough to win. Now he’s trying to expand his base and pull in the votes of super hardcore racists and white nationalists who haven’t voted since David Duke was on the ballot.

    I have never heard of u.s. presidents sound more like Hitler

    • @untseac What does this mean? Learn to write.

    • @SPZ Aruba Nazi were the antithesis of socialism and progressives. This is basic 5th grade History!

    • @Jimmi B 1930s Germany operated as a workers commune. That’s 7th grade social studies.

      @John Thomas Great ‘bad hair’ link! And all this time I thought he glued some orange floof on top of a frisbee and then stuck it on his head. Turns he actually has an inch or two of hair he swirls around to cover his otherwise bald head… and sprays it up with Gorilla Glue. Thanks for the link!

    • Have you seen Stephen Miller?

    We need to stop asking better from him… “When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time”

      William Thomas The thing is he showed us who he was more than 4 years ago..many times.

    • William Thomas
      You need to ask/expect better from the GOP!
      You MUST make sure @GOP hear relentlessly LOUD & CLEAR, negligence regarding Trump’s knowing, blatent inaction & lies, about the Russian bounty on American troops lives, is at best staggering #DerelictionOfDuty & will NOT be permitted to stand! ENOUGH! 😠 #Country1st or #RipGOP

  9. No end-game, no strategy, he’s solely acting to comfort his slighted ego.

    120 days until Nov 3!!!

    If he was a real man he would resign for the good of the country. But he aint even close.

    Trump, second president of the confederacy. His treason has no bounds

    • Chris Mckenzie | July 6, 2020 at 5:11 PM | Reply

      I live in Alabama. And when you hear REPUBLICANS down here start saying, “Yeah, Trump is going too far” you KNOW there’s a problem.

    • The CSA would never elect an orange yankee from NY. Trump is the king of Trumpistan. That’s a completely different country.

    • I’m afraid he knows his only remaining supporters are the people that revere the traitorous Confederacy and that they are itching to use their guns to do it all over again.

    • He called Robert E. lee a “Great General”

  13. Donald Trump claims that he is the least racist person in America all the while he works the hardest of any American at dividing America along racial lines!

  14. Vote BLUE like a swarm of locusts this fall. No assumptions. get out the vote.

  15. Trump is calling for the honoring of treason.

  16. moses Lacatus | July 6, 2020 at 3:24 PM | Reply

    This man has a lot of things in the country to think about but instead he focuses on racism. This is who he is. Evil

  17. Jefferson Davis was the 1st President of the Confederacy. Trump is the 2nd.

    • Craig Crawford | July 6, 2020 at 8:53 PM | Reply

      @Pamla Perez I know the shifts within the parties over the years, the point I am making is that those who defend Trump don’t really care. It’s all about the name or word used regardless of time and history. .

    • Truth Ninja | July 6, 2020 at 9:13 PM | Reply

      Confederacy were Democrats, moron…

    • @Cesar Canales it’s funny how both parties try to make racism a party thing when it was clearly a Western Culture thing. The thing that always connected WS was the European Christian ideology. Not all, but definitely many throughout US history.

  18. Laura Carson | July 6, 2020 at 3:32 PM | Reply

    “Doubles down”, or more like quadruple downs at this point.

  19. This monster is really trying to create divisions where there is none. Release his tax returns!

  20. Trump believes that human decency is a radical ideology.
