  1. Trump makes an executive order, if Biden gets in, he makes his own executive order to reverse it. No big deal really.

    Trump is drowning? Quick! Throw him an anchor.

  3. That’s going to backfire.

    • Nope, it’ll just make it harder for Progressives to get anything done. ‘Cuz the Republican Party will accuse everybody of being a loyalist. And when it comes time for the Democrats to cry loyalist, the Republican Party will just do it anyway.

    • @Alan Heyes Who cares what the republicans say as long as dems grab the senate and presidency?(hopefully)

    • I was thinking that 👍

    • @Alan Heyes There is exactly zero chance a President Biden will keep this order in effect. Executive orders are as flimsy as the paper they’re written on.

  4. He wants to burn the place to the ground on his way out. Not a surprise.

      @Lewis Beshers….you are still failing to mention how Trump is supposedly undermining our democracy, why is that? It’s just a talking point, that’s why. What am I cherry picking?

    • @Deplorable Libertarian I just told you how. And claiming a republic, and leaving out the democratic underpinnings is like saying you ate the whole sandwich, when clearly, half of it is still on your plate. Discuss, fine, don’t just blah blah at me. Buh bye…

    • Deplorable Libertarian | October 24, 2020 at 6:35 PM | Reply

      @Lewis Beshers…we aren’t a democracy, we are a constitutional republic- I don’t know why you’re arguing it and splitting hairs. We are a constitutional republic, an example of that said democracy would mean the popular vote electing the president- that doesn’t happen. ‘democrat underpinnings’….okay buddy, you go get em.

      @Lewis Beshers….you might want to get some counseling or something so the next 4 years of Trump aren’t so rough for ya.

    • @Deplorable Libertarian um, okay. I don’t know your personal take, but it always seems that some Libertarians don’t want smaller guvment, they don’t want any at all, and would prefer anarchy in place of our current system. The judicial and policy in the U.S have been hijacked due to gerrymandering and an electoral college system that was a give back to the slave states. We are suppose to be working towards a more perfect union, instead we have this guy who continues to make Putin’s every wet dream come to fruition. He has proven time and time again he doesn’t view himself as everyone’s president, just those that agree with him. If he does get elected, that will be the end of our country as we know and love it. It will be minority rule by a vindictive and petty man. And that is how Iraq was run, and South Africa. Not surprising that he lauds dictators, and bashes our allies. If you think that’s good for our country, then I would say you never really liked this country to begin with. See you at the large crowd Jan 20th…

  5. He’s a criminal, I wouldn’t expect anything less.

    • @Suzie Paris My wife and I both just voted for Biden in Florida. We’re proudly helping to drain the Trumplican swamp.

    • Ask yourself this, if Trump is criminal then why would he promote peace in the middle east, open up opportunities to poverty stricken areas, do prison reform by turning the biden crime act of 1994, give hbhc’s financing for a long term,bring manufacturing back into the country opening up more jobs here, give up his pay as president to the veterans as well as bolstering our military, better benefits to the people who serve and have served. What did biden do , let other countries take, put more people in jail, bribed a government to fire a prosecutor to stop an investigation on a corrupt business in another country his son happened to be a board member of, gave money to iran while allowing them to build their arsenal of nuclear weapons. and now biden is being investigated by the Ukraine for the very same thing he said in his video at a international conference about the qui pro quo he confessed to on video.

    • @John Cahill aint gonna happen…proud you voted for a male that fondles little girls n women on camera in the oval office…a politician that is for murdering unborn babies that are ripped from their mothers body n if not dead yet murdered on a table with a scalple to the base of the neck…biden did nothing for the SOS barack n killery ignored from our Navy Seals..which is a treasonous act..need i mention allllll the money that he n his trained son puppet have laundered thru china n other countries…and will let illegals flood our country n take down our country with them? You n your proud wife belong in a mental institution

    • @John Cahill – good job, but FL will give its electoral votes to Trump this year. DeSantis has been one of the best governors during covid. He ended the lockdown nonsense. Disney World is open while DisneyLand in CA is in talks to gtfo and move to TX 😂

    • @John Cahill Thank you for VOTING for AMERICA!! Biden/Harris 2020!!

  6. If I were Biden,I would simply write an executive order to nullify Trump’s oder.

  7. Biden will have to cleanse the government of Trump’s C & D list sycophants, grifters, rejects, misfits, posers, scallywags, and woefully unqualified neophytes.

    Smells like a lawsuit brewing. It’s coming fast and it’s gonna be furious.

    • A lawsuit? Hes got dozens. Thats what happens when youre a target

    • NUKE GAY WHALES FOR JESUS | October 24, 2020 at 11:08 AM | Reply

      @b t Who rattled your chain dimwit? He’s not a target, he’s a criminal. Besides, if you knew anything about civil service you’d know he can’t change civil service rules with an executive order because they are codified. He just hates that he can’t fire Fauci.

  9. How is he getting away w all the illegal mess🤔🤔

  10. Trump’s not that smart. He has help destroying our country. He’s a traitor. I’m guessing Mitch McConnell.

    • Trumps IQ is much higher than yours. Ask yourself this, if Trump is not smart, then why would he promote peace in the middle east, open up opportunities to poverty stricken areas, do prison reform by turning the biden crime act of 1994, give hbhc’s financing for a long term, bring manufacturing back into the country opening up more jobs here, give up his pay as president to the veterans as well as bolstering our military, better benefits to the people who serve and have served, secure our borders. having the lowest unemployment rate in history, before the corvid, and unemployment is lowering now as long as states open up and allow the people to open their business. the only thing Trump did is not to follow the socialist agenda the democrats are promoting and brainwashing people.

      @Marc Dalanni peace in the middle east tell that to Palestine and Iran. UaE ? DIdnt know America was fighting a war with them lol

    • The POtuS is Hitler reborn! Not only has he tried denying his Jewish heritage, he is committing Genocide, has a Secret Army, etc… the list goes on and on! He has taken every single page out of Hitlers playbook except for dying his hair black and popping into a Dollar Tree and buying a cheap black mustache!
      What do you think the future generations will call his secret army because Nazi’s is already taken?!?

    • @ABC XYZ – he wasn’t elected in 2016 he was “Put in”! 😉

    • @BVOB Another simp located.

  11. EVERYONE appointed to positions into all levels of federal govt under this administration will be fired come January. The Trump stain is permanent.

  12. Andrew Mcdornan | October 24, 2020 at 3:52 AM | Reply

    TRAITOR IN CHIEF

  13. O M G what is next? His mind is always full of vengeful thoughts to ruin all that he can on his way out!!!!!

  14. xidigta qoraxey | October 24, 2020 at 3:57 AM | Reply

    This is the simplest Biden should reverse all his executive orders

    • not that easy, unfortunately. Trump being Trump. Sabotage the government on your way out, like a spoiled child.

    • @JamesAllmond I’m not sure what you’re referring to exactly. Executive orders can be revoked by a new president (or even the same president) at will.

  15. And his cultists won’t even bother. Donnie is literally trying to burn down the country because it doesn’t praise him enough…

    • That is the TRUTH! If you haven’t VOTED – VOTE!! VOTE HIM OUT!! VOTE HIM OUT!! VOTE TRAITOR TRUMP OUT!!!

    • In thinking about how he originally threatened to withhold federal aid to California for wildland firefighting, coupled with everything he’s done since, it would appear that your comment is 100% accurate.

  16. You have seriously got to get rid of this guy.

  17. LIke in the war: the loser tries to destroy as much as possible before the winner takes over. No surprise. Justice is coming in january!!!

  18. Imagine him doing this, he will be firing all around him and sticking his donkeys in ( apologies to actual donkeys).

  19. Biden sure has a massive mess to clean up after Trump is kicked out, If that happens. Vote people.
