  1. A Biden presidency is starting to sound a lot better than current mess we are experiencing.

    • Biden is a racist and a child molester. Your point?

      @Gary hair I hope you travel and read widely outside America.

      You don’t become great by thinking putting your allies down in the name bringing industries back to yo country.

      I agree you guys deserve it to begin with but he could find a way of doing it not burning bridges.. What good does it do if you dont have jobs to feed and care for your families??

      The US is better placed to be the superpower cz it fairly helps the other countries in a nice way and we look up to you..

      But when you had Trump? 😂😂😂😂 y’all lost it. China is undercutting you big time by creating allies everywhere. Do we like it? No.. All we can wish and pray is you guys come out of this fast and take charge of the “vacuum” situation left by him.

      Right now, you being blind sided, and the rest of the world can see it, except the people within the US. It is unfortunate all of you can’t see it until you have stayed outside the US for sometime..

      I hope you get your industries back though.

    Donald trump is acting like he’s very afraid of something.

    • The Terrain Wizard | June 1, 2020 at 10:20 PM | Reply

      He’s afraid the White House is gonna get burned to the ground.

    • @Abe Lincoln do you sleep with your black mask on , do you take it off when you sleep. Does your own wife know what you look like are do you hide your face from her to

      TickledPink…sure he’s afraid of something. The Flabby Fuhrer is afraid of many things, such as:
      •Never measuring up to his predecessor
      •Being exposed as a fraud
      •Being exposed as a liar
      •Being exposed as an idiot
      •Being exposed as a sexual predator
      •Being exposed as incompetent
      •High winds

    • TickledPink: That’s also exactly why He and His Press Secretary divert the Media’s questions. He’ll reveal something and She will get Fired. Or maybe Trump’s paying for Sex with her too. (Refer to Stormy Daniels) What a team, huh folks ?!

    *While Donald was hiding in a bunker and tweeting hate & fear* Biden was visiting the protest site where Mr. Floyd was murdered, listening to the protesters, comforting the family, consoling and speaking of a future of peace.

      👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽indeed he was & I’m sure (former) President Obama would’ve been out there, not hiding like some scary wimp. He is an awful president & I hope bare these things in mind when it’s time to vote.

    Why is the US such a f up country compared to all the other civilized nations?

    • East Awesome | June 1, 2020 at 10:26 PM | Reply

      A few things. Long standing racial division and economical instability.
      The right to bare arms being built in the Constitution give crazy people a falls sense of power. They don’t need to believe government so they stockpile guns.

      because of the anti-American China owned news.

    • Alain Lefebvre | June 1, 2020 at 10:31 PM | Reply


    • Because people want cheap products not caring who suffers, giving companies CEO power and bonuses to cut AMERICAN workers. WE NEED TO BE MAKING OUR OWN MEDICATION AND CRITICAL SUPPLIES.


  9. And what did he try to do when he mention the second amendment in his speech? Provoking these protesters to bring guns so they can fight with the police?

    • Janaya McConnaughy | June 1, 2020 at 10:15 PM | Reply

      No he constantly invokes it to appeal to his followers. He always brings it up. He could be placing a call for pizza and just burst out “SECOOOND AMENDMEEENT”.

    Citizens, please don’t forget this come November!!! Utilize your rights and vote!!!
    We The People 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 🇺🇸

    • We as black people do vote but we don’t see direct evidence of equal justice from casting our vote. The 15th amendment guaranteed our black men the right to vote but it caused envy and jealousy from white women because they felt that it was legally wrong to put black men ahead of white women by giving black men the power to vote. That’s why white feminists use black men as scapegoats to get their point across if they feel like the system of white supremacy do them wrong.

      We won’t forget trust me snowflake. Trump 2020 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

    • Biden 2020!

    • If we can vote, you mean. As far as I’m aware, Martial Law can put an election on hold.

    • @Li Li if he remmembers it and not fall a sleep.

    F😂😂😂 who gave him that idea…, he didn’t find that on his own 😂😂

  13. It’s never a good sign of things to come for any leader to have to hide in a bunker.

  14. He’s going to keep this turmoil going so he can cancel the election

    • time for a coup and americas Bastille day.

    • No need to cancel if he’s going to win

    • Melvin Muddfuckle | June 1, 2020 at 10:51 PM | Reply

      No need to cancel the election or try! It was held during WW2! Nice try!

    • @Hawkzblade A modern day coup in the USA will send a disastrous message to the global geopolitics and economy stability which is worse than what’s unfolding this last week. That’s on top of the virus that has destroyed basically the entire world’s stability. I surely hope the election will just happen one way or another, hopefully peacefully.

  15. Now that he knows what he can get away with, he will pull something like this when he loses the election!

    He loves to use the same military that he refused to join when drafted! He is a punk and a coward. A Narcissistic Sociopath!

    • @Gentleman Of All Tradez you mean, when Ali decided to protest against being sent to a foreign country to kill people that never did anything to him, by a government that discriminated against him because he was a black man, yea, same thing… you don’t deserve a platform to present your immense ignorance.


    • @Michael Parrott-MacLeod Its very relevant. Trump has passed many executive orders which range from passing Human Trafficking laws to promoting free speech and human rights

      Hes also destroying the deep state:

      -Merged the Federal Reserve with the U S treasury. We own the Fed now pretty much.
      -Stopped funding WHO(Funded by corrupt Rothchild bankers and china).
      -Ended censorship
      -Killed CIA agent Qasem Soleimani
      -Relaxed Middle east tensions
      -Eased hostility with North Korea
      -Labeled Antifa as a Terrorist Organization(And honestly, it is)
      -Plan to replace all chinese made electrical grids with american ones
      -Pulled out all U.S troops(And equipment) from the middle east
      -Ended conflict in Afghanistan and signed a peace treaty

    • Gentleman Of All Tradez Ali was a hero and a real man. Trump is a coward and a narcissist.

    • We the People will go all in with ‘what if they had a civil war and nobody came’
      Then he gets to hear the whole world laugh at him for all time
      We win

  20. Man this is a clown show…wow…shocked. WE NEED A TRUE LEADERSHIP. BECAUSE WE DO NOT WITH TRUMP AND FOX NEWS!
