  1. The silence coming from the republicans is going to be their death in November.

  2. Great… now he is trying to undermine the US Military to benefit the Russians and and Putin. He is no longer hiding the fact that he is a russian agent.

      CBS News
      Trump: “I’m not saying the military’s in love with me. The soldiers are. The top people in the Pentagon probably aren’t because they want to do nothing but fight wars, so all of those wonderful companies that make the bombs and make the planes and make everything else stay happy”

    • Let’s not forget how many Americans those companies employ to make those planes, weapons, submarines, etc… People who get paid actual decent wages and benefits

      @S Russell wouldn’t doubt much of it is made in china

    • Actually weapons, bombs, military craft and vehicles are some of the only products that ARE still made in the US. And they’re some of the best in the world. That is why every other country (like Saudi Arabia) wants to buy them from us.

  3. He also accused doctors and nurses stealing or hording medical supplies!

  4. The Mafia would be jealous of his Criminal Enterprise.

  5. Honestly after what he said about John McCain, I don’t think anyone has trouble believing this

  6. He is causing other problems to take attention away from the virus.

  7. Ask any American soldier a simple, honest and sobering question: Would you want to be in a fox hole with Donald J Trump?

    • Julian Wright You sound like a Leftist as you are always pointing fingers. I’m safe and sound here in AZ.

    • @Dirk Denim I am not a Democrat but will be voting blue to get rid of the vile lying psychopathic ignorant orange coward.

    • @Dirk Denim “He loves the country the Dems are trying to destroy.”
      How can the Democrats destroy anything if Trump has already destroyed it all? In case you missed it, the country is ravaged by plague, death toll will exceed 300.000 by the time the election hits, the deficit has been blown up, the economy is in a full-blown depression, unemployment is breaking all-time records, the housing market is on the verge of collapse, almost all government organisations are lead by Trump stooges with little to no experience at the job (and it’s showing), he outright admitted he’s rigging the election from within and without, he’s enriching himself and his family at every turn… AND he has been impeached (but the coward republicans refused to apply a sentence to their golden boy…)

      Then this so-called tax holiday.. it’s only a boon for the ultra-rich, common people still have to pay the owned taxes after the ‘holiday’ ends, which they likely don’t have due to the current stack of calamities… unless ofcourse they vote for Trump so he makes it permanent (which will destroy social security)… he’s giving the country a blackmail letter while holding it hostage… and you vote for him for what reason exactly?

    • @Dirk Denim ‘Russian collusion now proven fake’ stop lying (especially to yourself). Get an education.

    • @Dirk Denim ‘The USA should be more worried about Dems and their working with China right now for ballots.’ Considering Trump asked China to help him with his reelection that is a pretty stupid effort to do some fear mongering.


  9. And all of the Republicans remain COMPLETELY SILENT…………..

    • Remember how Adam Schiff said “silent” last year? It was a resounding condemnation. “You were SILENT!!!!” This is tbe Republican legacy: being known for being silent.

    • I think it’s about time some politician called out the Pentagon’s war profiteering.

      Follow the careers of most of our generals and admirals….it’s reached insane proportions since Bush and Cheney were in office.

    • @llriv If you want to live in peace, you must prepare for war. So what is your point? Where is your gripe?

    • @Mr Curly — My gripe is generals and corporations advocating for wars as a means of personal profit.

      I’ve dealt with corporations like KBR during military deployments. It’s 90% grift…not “preparing for war.”

    • they do profiteer off the wars. are you stupid or something?

  10. I’d be laughing if this wasn’t real life.

    • @Rokchant You can get away with a lot when you convince your followers the press is the enemy of the people.

    • You liberals have the worst memories. You literally bashed the Bush administration for ……………………….profiteering off of the wars. Trump derangement much?

    • @nick smith sorry nick, i was too young to vote when bush was in office, though i do think it’s kind of funny you bring him up. can’t remember for sure so i could be wrong but – did he too lose the popular vote yet still became potus?

    • @sleep assist well, study history, its not too hard. the liberal media bashed bush for 8 years for his administration profitteering off the wars, AND THEY WERE RIGHT!!. And yes, he lost the popular vote? who cares? its meaningless. since you are young you should educate yourself and read our constitution. Elections are decided by the electoral college. It was put in place so highly populated states (California and New York) wouldnt run the whole country. After seeing whats going on in those 2 states, THANK GOD FOR THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE

    • @nick smith While I won’t argue with you that the EC has benefited the Reps more than it has the Dems, You just stated the liberal media attacked Bush for 8 years and you said they were right. So what exactly are you trying to say? You got me a bit confused as to what point you are trying to make.

  11. HE IS NOT PRESIDENT! Call him by his name people, TRAITOR!

    • nah, the only traitors are dems. they sold the country out to china and have let millions of foreingers immigrate here illegally just so they can make a voting block out of them. what could be more traitorous than that?

    • @nick smith with all due respect to you as a fellow American, Please research your facts. NOT TRUE! He turned on our intelligence and praised Russia. (proven) He knows that Russia literally has bounties on the heads of the American Militairy (proven). He called this virus a Hoax out of his own mouth and it has been revealed that he lied about it…… his words were yes I downplayed it, I still downplay it till this day. (proven). He asked China for help with in getting elected in 2016 (proven). He lies every single day (proven). I am not into (WHATABOUTISM). This is when people say… well what about Bush, What about Hillary, What about Obama. HE IS THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES NOW AND IS FAILING HORRIBLY AT IT! I could care less about red, blue, conservative, liberal, we need someone in office who does not stoke fear amongst people in certain demographics, who believes in equal rights, who does not lie every time he opens his mouth, and who will appoint qualified people for their administration. Someone who believes that ALL LIVES MATTER WHICH INCLUDE BLACK LIVES! NEPOTISM should not be allowed in the Presidency. NONE OF HIS CHILDREN ARE ADEPT ENOUGH TO RUN A KOOLAID STAND!

    • @Makeda Byrd everything you just said is a complete lie. why do you lie so much? you are a russian conspiracy quack. He isnt failing at all, he has been a great president. the china virus, which is completely chinas and the whos fault put a dent in his great economy but that will be over soon. you cant be dumb enough to vote for Joe Biden, can you? the man is complletely senile and unfit for office. only s stupid person would vote for him

      @Makeda Byrd if your sources are MSNBC and CNN I can’t take you seriously

    • Barbara LaPointe | September 16, 2020 at 8:17 PM | Reply

      @Makeda Byrd Astonishing that some people just plain don’t see it, isn’t it? Facts right before them and they ignore and shout “Trump 2020.” Never underestimate the power of large groups of ignorant people.

  12. How did someone so completely anti American become president?

  13. The troll is going down.
    A great fall.
    Just like humpty dumpty.

  14. Voting is like driving. Use the R if you want to go backwards and use the D to go forward.

    “Take the oil,” trump talks about profiteering.

  16. When he leave everyone he fired for doing there job should get their jobs back… That would be Karma for sure..

    Give Trump the medal he deserves – the “Yellow Heart”!

  18. Distraction.
    He will say anything now.

    Don’t fall for it.

  19. I gotta say, Trump keeps outdoing himself every day. Now that is a talent in itself.

  20. Generals don’t profit from war. Defense contractors do. Even when he’s half-right, he craps the bed.
