    You can see why trump bankrupted so many companies and lost more money than any other person in American history. He’s beyond useless.

    • Helen Short | May 15, 2020 at 9:36 AM | Reply

      Unless he declared bankruptcy and losses to avoid paying taxes and instead spirited that money out of his businesses…

    • Andrew Mitchell | May 15, 2020 at 9:38 AM | Reply

      At this point in a business, he’d be selling junk bonds to naïve investors and walking away from the mess he’d created with their money.

      I believe Trump is the only person to ever bankrupt a Casino. How do you bankrupt a Casino? They are a literal money printing machine.

      He has filed 6 times.. I wouldn’t sell him a used car on credit.

      He’s doing to the country what he has done to many of his businesses. How could we have expected anything else. He’s to lazy and apathetic for anyone to ever be hopeful he could be an effective leader.

  2. He was removed because he stopped the corruption within his agency.

      @James Irving Years ago, I was in the army. Met a guy that claimed going to a recently nuked site would be good for you because of the radiation. He went on to explain that if you have cancer they give you radiation to cure you. I could have argued but I thought two things. First he was too stupid to waste time on, and the other is that the army needed people like him.

      @Edward Emmick This comment is spot on. Thank you. 😂✌

    • Bright got outstanding job approvals up until he stopped the corruption in his agency.

    • So true!!!

    Doctor bright was Removed cause he’s way too bright for Dotard tRump is why he was canned & removed!

      @Vigilence : I agree 100%. My one yr old chihuahua puppy is smarter & brighter than tRump & she’s adorable unlike that miserable wretch!

    • @Baby drumphf, you’re right. Trump is lethargic to truth. And Trump fat ego won’t allow him to let others shine above him. Even when they’re rightly within their rights.

      Trump has a small mind and very shallow. He smoothly talked his way into an office that he’s no capacity to learn or hold. Disaster.

      Bright? Lol. Remember Mueller Time? Iminaminaminapeachmint? Stormy? Avennetti? Vindman? Hahahahaha you lose.

      Remember when CNN made Nick sandman a millionaire?

    • Mueller Time | May 15, 2020 at 11:21 AM | Reply

      Wow!!! So much TDS. Is this the real reason dims wanted the economy and world shut down?

    • @mary nyaga
      I wouldn’t say Trump smooth talked his way of getting elected. He was crass, vulgar, racist and egocentric to name a few things but people overlooked these character flaws anyway. Did they think he’d become an intelligent, kind and scholarly man after elected? Or felt he was more honest than Clinton? (All politicians are a little to “biggly” crooked, imo.) And the Electoral College voted for him, not the popular vote.
      Americans need to get out and vote in droves next election unless they want Trump re elected.

  4. Why was he removed? That’s an easy one. Trump doesn’t want the facts about his criminal non-response to a worldwide pandemic to come out, and this Doctor told the truth which hurts his re-election chances. Trump’s priority is getting elected again to keep the truth about his corruption in office hidden by an equally corrupt Attorney General and Republican Senate. Let’s not forget the mountain of civil and State charges that will move forward once he’s out of office. His entire existence has always been about courruption, and surrounding himself with people who will cover it up. Everything Trump touches DIES.

    • It’s time American fight for greater democracy and freedom to make America great again, White House are infested with corrupt politicians and dictators,

    Trump, Ambassador Maria Yoyonovich Removed because she did not participate in his Ukraine Bribery Scam. Sorry for the misspelling of the former Ambassador name.

      and violence will be out of control. Both domestic and in the city streets. Basic needs
      for 20% of us will be at desperate levels. Stock up on food and lead if you wanna live!

  10. Trump will forever be listed with Hitler and Stalin for the many, many innocent people killed under them, except that Trump did it out of laziness, incompetence, and what he thought was good politics for himself. It’s horrendous that anyone would trade so many innocent lives for political advantage but doing that was actually bad politics! Mix Evil and stupidity and you get Trump.

      @quan Brooklyn kid Not So far but unfortunately Trump shows a lot of the same impulses. Why is he deflecting, why is he letting you all die.

    • Trump will get an asterik. Because he didn’t intentionally commit genocide or send his people to death bye keeping them in a city without escaping and using civilians as human Shields. Trump just decided his re-election was more important than people.

    • Most liberal minded people doesn’t mean we’re all Democrats get our news from multiple sources including television. We just don’t watch or read propaganda Outlets, you know mainstream media the ones you hate apparently

    • It’s time American fight for greater democracy and freedom, White House are infested with corrupt politicians and dictators

      @Long Range Rifle Fake News?????
      The First Amendment – Freedom of the press- the right to report news or circulate opinion without censorship from the government, And yet, Trump is constantly undermining any news agency that does not agree with him by refusing to answer their questions. calling them names and saying they are “nasty”. By doing this as a representative of the government, is he not trying to censor freedom of the press? He absolutely is!!

    • maybe they need to tell him directly that his “special relationship” with Beijing, has so far led to him being in denial, getting mocked on the international stage, being late on the pandemic response, and basicly just a giant #Fail in every department. He’s treating the presidency like a reality TV show where he’s “frenemies” with China, while ppl die in the real world.

    • China may have failed to contain this, but he also failed by relying on “special relationships” instead of just having a brain. And doing his job competently and with integrity. Has there been any effort made yet to move and increase production of pandemic essentials to the US? so we can avoid international bottle necks?

    • John Buick At least Trump has tried his best to fulfil his 2016 campaign promises. He has helped more people in the circumstance including the whining Andrew Cuomo, He can please some people all the time but not ALL people at the same time.

    • John Buick Balancing the needs of a whole nation is not easy. no one expected and could have seen the force of covid . Hindsight is 100% vision. The governor of NY should also have watched his turf and people arriving. So easy to play the blame game.

    Trump doesn’t want anyone around him who is going to question his motives. Trump wants followers with no thought processes, in short the people that follow him are sheep. And as we know sheep get slaughtered in the end.
