    Trump promises an awful lot that never happens but yet his gullible base always believes him.

    • @Dr_Dazed a strong economy with subpar jobs that dont keep up with the cost of living benefits mostly the wealthy and ceo s and executives. They are the people that engages in the stock market with diversified portfolios.

    • mark tito ‘Best economy ever.’ That’s a little absurd, don’t you think? Any president can create jobs with a decent economy that they can work with. Obama had no playing room; Trump does. But, the question is: do these jobs really pay all that well that Donald is creating. That answer is No. it’s an illusion at its finest.

    • @Brian Martin trumps economy is 3.7 after inheriting an economy of 4.5 which is a net difference of .8 obama inheriting an economy of 10.7. So who is responsible for most of the movement. Obama did this in a recession in the midst of two concurrent wars and trump is still reaping the benefits of the obama administration. But iguess its hard to explain to these guys who cant do simple math.

  2. But traitor Trump LOVES our troops…right?!

    • cameron mallonee, if you support trump in any way at all you are giving him support on everything, whether or not that is your intent. He is a bully and takes unfair advantage at any opportunity. Nothing trump is doing is for the betterment of the country, no matter what lies he tells. He is only enriching himself at our expense and usurping power he is not entitled to. If you cannot understand the truth of this we are done, as you have demonstrated trump toadism and an unwillingness to learn perfectly and are starting to become boring.

    • SkyGemini, and as president* he is still not serving our country. Which in reality is not his country, russia is.

    All this because of an old man’s massive ego.

  4. Trump DID state that Mexico will cut a check – one time payment: despite a memo from his campaign in 2016 outlining a plan to make Mexico do just that. Trump’s campaign sent a memo to the Washington Post in April 2016 outlining how he would force Mexico to make a one-time payment to pay for the wall. The memo appeared on a since-deleted page on his campaign website.
    “It’s an easy decision for Mexico: make a one-time payment of $5-10 billion to ensure that $24 billion continues to flow into their country year after year,” the memo read.

    This is what happens when gullible people fall for a snake oil salesman.

    • The traitors are the ones selling the country out to the third world countries and trying their best to turn the country in to Venezuela. I saw the real video and the one that CNN (communist news network) faked by cutting it short. The money is the pentagon budget and the supreme court already said he can move it as he chooses. They have no more options to stop Trump from doing what WE THE PEOPLE demanded he do.

    • @robert hicks you are really good at parroting trump’s lying propaganda, you should get your news from real news sources, not fox, not breitbrt, not pregaru, not disinfowars, etc., etc., etc. The supreme court is corrupted by gorsuch and kavanagh, who gave a loyalty oath in order to be nominated. They will do as trump orders not base decisions on the law, barr also gave a loyalty oath. So now the executive branch, the banana republicans in congress, as well as the United States Department of In-justice are now all putin’s puppets. The ones trying to turn America into “Venezuela” are trump and his toadies and of course his adoring base of useful idiots. I am sure you can figure out where you belong in this group of traitors. Thank you for your time.

      @Dan Cogswell Very well stated sir. 🧐

  5. Why did he need funding from pelosi if Mexico was paying?

    • The money was suppose to come from a trade deal Pelosi refused to even vote on.

    • @Dr_Dazed Mexico is on its way to being a world power… Trust they are NOT Poor… Corrupt yes but not poor.

    • hicks  trade deals don’t funnel money into the US Treasury. NAFTA worked for American businesses. Trump doesn’t understand trade but that’s only because he is willfully ignorant.

      If I were you, I would sit back and watch what’s about to happen in the next few years.

    Says more about the morons who voted for the clown. Believing that a sovereign nation would be forced into paying for his ridiculous fantasy wall… And yet, here they are bending over and taking it in the behind in the end. Leave it up to right-wing Americans to always vote against their own interests. Hilarious!

  7. He claimed to be for the Military. Hahaha, we have been taken for a ride with this Con man.

  8. Trump couldn’t get funding for his wall the first year he was in office and it was a Republican House of Representatives!

    • N F filibustering doesn’t matter when you don’t even try to get a bill before the floor so your original comment is irrelevant. Can’t argue how hard it is in their favor when they don’t even bother to try so they don’t get the benefit of the doubt on this broken promise.

    • @N F

      38% and dropping like a stone

    • N F again he is a liar plan and simple he never even attempted to get a bill to the floor. It would be one thing to bring a bill it have it shot down but a other to never even try. If we want to talk about obstructionist why don’t you bring up the dozens of bills McConnell won’t even allowed to be brought to the floor they passed in the house but he won’t let the Senate vote on them.

      @BbetrGODczU L 🧐 You’re correct.

      @Andy Ortiz 🤔 TRUE ⚠️

  9. What an asshouse to take from Puerto Rico rebuilding funds.

  10. nichole Roberts | September 6, 2019 at 3:59 PM | Reply

    The ones that where smart enough. And didn’t fall for his bs . Knew this …but ones that did fall for this …are now finding out. And rest of us are paying for it. Maybe his voters should pay for it.

    I don’t want no wall…why should I have pay for something I don’t want.

    Vote him out in 2020.

  12. trump’s first question when aid for the Bahamas is brought up: Are Bahamians white?

    • The Bahamas are Helped by the British. Go to that country and learn they hire British Whites to work the casinos.

    • ….how white are they, do they have oil we can drill for….and can we buy the island at a discount now because of the hurricane damage?? 👻👻👻

      @Miss Amazon I think your last point was on the money.
      However, since he hasn’t got around to “fixing up” Puerto Rico, and can’t afford to build a wall without stealing money from the Army schoolkids, I don’t think it’ll fly.

  13. when poeple praise trump and thank god for him and think he is what the usa needs what they are really saying is that they are unamerican cowards who are afraid of immigrants and they are willing to see you lose everything to feed into their fear. Trump voters want a different country not a better one. Get out trump voters! Leave OUR country!

  14. Mexico said: GO F#&K YOURSELF DONNIE!

      Efren Flores isn’t that “fxxk your mother”?

    • @C J Much to Trump’s liking it goes more like this– “republicans are so dumb, ….” … to the obscenely obvious—> “…they’ll swallow my cumb.” Boy, howdy. Say goodbye to the GOP and hello to the most grotesque collection of power bottoms (“bend over so Trump can park it here in my rear”) our tax payer dollars are “draining the swamp” with. Yeah, nothing wrong with this picture.

    • …so does the rest of the world.

  15. The guy has been running Con jobs his ENTIRE LIFE. Stevie Wonder could have seen this coming.

    And how is this going to protect us as a country when the military is losing money. Who still believe him is just as crazy and need some professional help

  18. Hey, you Trump supporters, who is going to pay for the wall???

    • Americans!!!

    • @Robert Evans no, its the other usa. Im talking about the uniquely sterile animals, a zoo in Mexico, not to be confused with the unidentified strange anuses which is a private club at big bens tip . Maybe you should get a little more schooling, so many usas to choose from

    • @Robert Evans my bad, not big ben in london. Big ben who works at that same zoo in Mexico. I can see how it would get confusing

    • Ya for a wall ya right .tell you what .just trade Trump for his buddy.putin.we may get better results. Ok.

    • Wait until the government start taking land to put up that useless monstrosity. Republicans will be fuming

  19. “We are not paying for no fokking wall” – Vicente Fox, Ex-president of Mexico
