    All I am hearing is What Trump is doing, and edited video to get yourself across .
    Voting polls are "dumb data" hand picked to suit your view .
    When do we get to hear what would ar should be done different .
    It is easy to put someone down when you don't like them .
    President Trump is doing great .
    God bless

  • WoundedHealer Intuitive

    This woman is a Jezzebel. The President does not accept the payment that presidents often get because he doesn't feel like he needs it. The president also wasn't owned during his election. (These aweful elitists that want us to hate ourselves but tell everyone else to celebrate their own,) these people are hateful and they never, ever show the truth. People are shocked about Epstein? They are shocked about countries wanting to protect themselves? It's racist to protect yourself, like China does. But they do not point that out. Trump doesn't belong to their secret Societies and is not owned by any group. He doesn't label himself. How can anyone watch these people and think it's objective, factual journalism? It kills me to see all the lies. It's not normal to have this kind of obsession about the president nor show such hatred and pretend that they are so moral and shove it down our throats and then behave exactly as dictatorial, nazis but just like the Narcissistic personality disorder personalities they are, they turn it around and say it's YOU who are racist and immoral and need to practice self hate but other countries are supposed to be empowered.

    Trump just became 1st sitting pres to step on NK soil. He set this historic moment up by tweet, which lead to the restoration of nuke negotiations. This was a stroke of genius that was probably in the works for some time. Now when Libs make their ‘foreign policy by tweet’ criticisms, he can say it works.
    Anyone who thinks the president is dumb, is gravely underestimating him, to their own demise, and I love it!!

    During dinner at the White House, Melania Trump leaned over to chat with Vice President Mike Pence.
    "I bought Donald a parrot for his birthday," she gushed, "That bird is so smart Donald has
    already taught him to say over two hundred words!"
    “That's very impressive,” said Pence, "But, you do realise he just says the words. He
    doesn't really understand what they all mean.”
    "Oh, I know" replied Melania, "But neither does the parrot."
