      I wish all you sane anti-Trump people could go on Michigan’s MLive and Click on Detroit channels and try and convince all the Trump cultists on those channels about how evil Trump really is. But they have been mesmerized by Trump and FOX News.

      @Leo a lot of Republicans are turning on Trump because they’re siding with logic over his screaming and lying

      @Tater Solus They’re cutting bait and running, 3 years of this crap they smell Trump’s blood in the water. Don’t be fooled again.

    • @Tater Solus They should be putting the blame where it belongs THE GOP 🚽 PARTY.
      I used to respect the Republican party ( H.W. was the 1st President I ever voted for.
      But look at them now !

    Trump more concerned about monuments than actual soldiers on the battlefield. Epic failure anyway you look at it.

    • Toward Treatise Trump’s buddies are Putin, Xi, MBS, and Rocket Man… what’s that say?

    • Toward Treatise | July 1, 2020 at 8:37 PM | Reply

      Elmosweed it’s worse they’re being kicked out on the street and denied hotels.

    • Toward Treatise | July 1, 2020 at 8:39 PM | Reply

      Elmosweed that body count is on the US for being involved in the first place. Police matter? And it should be locally driven and decided for the fairness of local democratic representation that understands it.

    Making putin stronger is trumps only job worry

    • Check out Putin’s Toy[click the J to play, over 4,100 views] It’s a punk rock anti Trump song featuring top Canadian musicians and female vocalists. I wrote it and do the lead vocals. Help yourself to a 2nd free download on my channel”Blood Sea” another old school punk rock gem, on how the poorest of the poor prop up the richest of the rich. Feel free to leave a comment william esp Borrero, I value your opinion.

    Trump’s really reading the mood of the nation well. It’s like he’s _trying_ to lose now.

      @Joel De Leon That was really stupid …..Oh the left would get there butts handed to them .

    • Joel De Leon | July 1, 2020 at 8:15 PM | Reply

      @Kevin McNeil Also, *their. I’ll take my chances against an army of you seeing as you don’t have a proper education. It’ll almost be too easy.

    • Why would Joe need to be out campaigning? Benedict Donald is doing it for him.

    • hmmcinerney | July 1, 2020 at 9:04 PM | Reply

      Lafayette Sq and now this? He’s toast. Even Mitch McConnell is advocating for masks, he can sniff the wind.

    • @hmmcinerney In lieu of the desired cross burning, Benedict Donald will be putting on a July 4th fireworks display like no one has ever seen.

    • @Boogaloo Bill surprise trump is a Russian ally

    • @Colin Cleveland Lincoln project has it here on YouTube on their sight, it’s brutally honest, twitty twumpy is going to fill his Depends

    • Boogaloo Bill | July 1, 2020 at 10:35 PM | Reply

      @Al if trump serves any master it’s the house of Rothschild through Wilber Ross his commerce secretary, who is a known agent of the Rothschilds and organized trumps bankruptcy in the 80’s.

    • Boogaloo Bill he owes the Russian mob millions

  9. this is exactly what a manchurian canidate would do ..more sadition and destruction from this soviet infiltrator will come.

    Trump doesn’t want 4 more years of the presidency, he wants 4 more years of immunity.

  11. Focus Donald. 150000.+ dead of covid19, bounties on soldiers heads, millions unemployed. Prioritize.

    Lil donnie should just put on the pointy hood before taking the podium.

  13. Trump has to check with his Business Partner, Vladimir Putin, before he does anything.

    • Manuel Castillo | July 1, 2020 at 9:27 PM | Reply

      That’s all he has left!, his base and whatever Putin has over him. If he goes against those two what then!?. He knows this and that’s why he will never go against them, because he knows that in (Nov.) he will lose!. Donald Trump doesn’t see a benefit to do the contrary.

    I`m so surprised that the republican party haven`t distance them self from Trump just to save their jobs an a seat.

    Ok when even the state of Mississippi government, dominated by conservatives, overwhelmingly says it’s time to move away from Confederate symbols, you know time has come.

  17. He didn’t have the “balls” to join the military when he was drafted “five times” because of “growth Spurs”….. he won’t protect the American Military right now!!!!! But he want to protect his Confederate heritage!!!!!….. who in Trump’s family fought in the Confederate War???

  18. Jeanine Kemmer | July 1, 2020 at 7:55 PM | Reply

    Cares more about statues than the Americans he swore to protect and serve.

  19. Trump defends confederate statues, but not our troops. He needs to resign so he can be tried for treason.

  20. Anthony Wills | July 1, 2020 at 8:26 PM | Reply

    Why don’t Trump take those statues to his properties and watch them for the rest of his life!!!
