    Of course! Because it is more important to promote racism than it is to fund national security.

    • @Thomas Jackson Yes that’s what i’m implying. Almost. Politicians are very self -serving, so they allowed it in 1917 and they allowed it in 1942 when they named these bases. They allowed it in the 1950’s & 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, 90’s and 2000’s without making it part of the national conversation. So i suspect that the people on these bases werent thinking of the names in terms of racism. I suspect they were thinking of these generals in terms of historical figures. I mean, Im not opposed to renaming the bases. I just dont trust the motivations of polticians

    • @Thomas Jackson I prize nationalism? TF!? I’m a globalist by a country mile. Nationalism is anti-progress and outdated. I just recognize my opponents and the people who believe things I don’t like as human beings, (probably) good people, who came to these beliefs organically.

      Soldiers fight for the soldier next to them. The do not fight for ideals. Generals and politicians “fight” for ideals. Soldiers are not to reason why, theirs is to do or die – or somesuchasmuch.

      @Andy Lord Ok, I misunderstood you. But I still think that a soldier who fights for something that so obviously heinous and wrong is not a hero, and not worthy of being honored.
      The soldiers who fought in Vietnam are different though, since they were drafted.

      But many people left the country rather than fight for what was wrong. I think that is more honorable than KNOWINGLY fighting for what’s wrong just because you are fighting alongside your countrymen.

    • Thomas Jackson | December 23, 2020 at 7:30 PM | Reply

      @Raptango_NA I don’t oppose renaming the bases either, but Trump has just vetoed all defense spending because he refuses to rename the bases.

    • @Thomas Jackson how do you know that is the reason?

  2. Trump is taking down America on his way out the door

  3. Trump is such a “Karen”

  4. Putin got his money’s worth.

  5. Remember when we had a good president? It’s been a very long 4 years..

    • @Scott M oh so Bush jnr was a good president to you?

    • @Jefferson Project record stock market yet record unemployment record food lines record amount of socialist paycheck welfare record number of dead Americans during peacetime

    • Jefferson Project | December 23, 2020 at 8:58 PM | Reply

      @Ron if the pandemic hit during any other presidency it would have been far worse. Trump issued the Defense Production Act and Operation Warp Speed, had 3M, Ford, GM and others making PPE and ventilators. Met with CEO’S and banks to have a plan for market uncertainty way back in March so when oil went to negative we didn’t have a stock market crash, he also had a huge impact on maintaining supply chains across the US.

      @maodonimega all I recall from Obama was losing 6k in the stock market, losing money from my paycheck in taxes, becoming homeless (with a full time job) and watching the civil unrest in Baltimore and Ferguson.

    • @Jefferson Project wrong Trump clearly downplayed his responces as he stated in interviews fidnt shut down european travel until late March and now US mortality rate is the 8th highest in the world. US voters clearly dont have confindence in Trump and he lost the election through his incompetence

    Reviled is the man that seeks to make political capital from the ruin of his country… Lord Bacon.

  7. Override that veto. Donny doesn’t matter anymore.

  8. 4 years of an enemy as the leader of your country has done so much damage.

  9. Scotched Earth policy, From Stalin to Emperor Palpatine on Star Wars. Typical Dictator tactic when you lose.

  10. I’ll bet you a grand that he doesn’t understand that the confederacy fought AGAINST the United States

  11. Lock him up & Throw Away the Key …… Forever.

    He is almost gone, he is almost gone, but the B is getting the attention he loves. Effin sociopath.

    • @Daniel Law Nancy asked for 2k in May now he’s trying to save face in hiding. His days are numbered

    • @Christine King McConnell will catch the drippings 🤢

    • Alfred Basurto | December 23, 2020 at 5:48 PM | Reply

      I want 2k and Democrats want 2k. Republicans better listen to him. He hurt them more than us. 🤷‍♂️


    • @Mavis Jacobs Yes she did. She also asked for lots of other things. Which this bill has and more. That have nothing to do with us or covid-19. Gender studies in Pakistan. 1.5 billion to Egypt for defense spending. Who buy their weapons from Russia. They threw themselves a raise in there also. Because icecream is expensive. How about we take care of ourselves. And let the rest of the world figure out their own problems. Do you think for one minute that that money is going to be regulated by us. No it’s going to be handled by the countries that it’s given to. To fund whatever they see fit. Including Terrorists. We need to mind our own busines. That same money. Our money could go a long way to fix the broken education system. There is your health care. Kiss it goodbye. We keep making debt. Sometime we will have to pay it back. All the things the left want. They could give us. If not for giving it to others. It’s like burning your car down. Right before a race. You are not going to win. Left wing and right wing. Both belong to the same bird of prey. Guess who the prey is. Happy Holidays.

  13. I guess that martial law isn’t going to happen…

    Donald J. Trump: Second president of the Confederacy.

      Isn’t he saying he doesn’t like the confederate names

      @Andrew Warther well put

    • Andrew Warther | December 23, 2020 at 8:59 PM | Reply

      @Bill Smith Rofl, yes, clearly those 2 things are the reason for Clintons surplus, just ignore everything else and boil it down to 2 policies. Ignore the cutting of military bloat and increased taxes, as well as his work on NAFTA and the WTO.

      Brilliant logic. Anything good MUST have been due to a GOP congress. Clearly.

      …oh wait a basic search of history will show the gop fighting Clinton tooth and nail for his taxing of the rich and cutting of Defense bloat. And the subsequent years of gop rule has been based off the polar opposite of what Clinton did (with disaster results)

      Rofl, but keep going on about how its the dems that cause bankruptcy and ruin when W drove us off a cliff, and Trump has done the same.

      @Something For The People Ministry circumcision of the heart, umm
      I dont think you understand what words mean

      @Scott Lancaster you are aware of the jump in farm bankruptcies by 24percent i. 2019 due to trump failed tariff war

  15. There needs to be a new saying to reflect self interest over group interest…”that’s so Trump”

  16. Rosalyn Jeffery | December 23, 2020 at 4:53 PM | Reply

    So sick of him just leave already…

  17. The guy is nuts and does not care how much he damages the country. His only concern is personal revenge and keeping attention on himself.

    • Yes, he does that’s why he veto’d it. More money to other countries, not protecting our country. Freedom loving Americans that fought for this country and stand for this wonderful America know that! Your ignorant.

    • @Book Nerd With a name lie Book Turd I wouldn’t be casting that first stone.

    • Ok big fella you send your addition $1400 stimulus to Charity when you get it. HA!

    • He NEVER cared a hoot about being POTUS, it was to enrich himself and his minions and spawn, and all you had to do is pay attention. Gun control, with the young victims in his office, (we’ll get it done.) NOPE, 20 minutes later he forgot all about it. Healthcare? Ha ha. For four years when asked, “our plan will be presented in two weeks), and golfing over 350 times, and so on. This is just the culmination of a total nightmare. Luckily, I believe that there are the votes to override. This was a bipartisan bill and I’m not sure there were any descenting votes, including my personal “favorite”, Rand Paul.

      @Book Nerd They are not talking about the covid relief bill. This is the national defense authorization act. Nothing to do with the covid bill

  18. He keeps texting and tweeting lies and bull poop, he’s out of his mind, going senile he ain’t right

  19. The damage that Trump and his enablers have done to this government is absolutely appalling.😞🤢

  20. The Confederate’s LOST!!! It’s about F’in time we stop giving them credit for anything but Treason!
