    A politician with a $40 million yacht. Why am I not surprised.
    Of course, having spent all that money on not only this, but her 9 other yachts, I expect there will be a pay rise for politicians.

    Most interesting thing he didn´t mention, the Yacht is registered in the Cayman Islands to avoid taxes in the US. So there are tax cheaters even in the US Government.

    Assigning a person of ten yachts to figure out how to best educate the children of the people of zero-yachts couldn't possibly be a poor idea. It's not like, for example, appointing an anti-environmentalist to chair the EPA....

    Dick DeVos is a super rich billionaire (richer than Donald Trump) from Michigan that tried to run for Governor of that state, was soundly defeated, and for some bizarre and clearly campaign donation oriented reason, his wife Betsy DeVos (who denounces public schools) is now the U.S. Secretary of Education. Trump sure knows how to pick em.

    I don't know why but it kinda bothers me that Betsy DeVos gets like the most boos from the crowd but I feel like she's not the worst in the trump administration.

      yeah, not sure where you got the number 32 trillion from. it was shown that Medicaid and Medicare received enough money to give everyone health insurance.
      I have to figure out why Americans think health insurance for its people is impossible here but does work in 120 other countries just fine. but you know what I do find interesting about America? it ranks the 10th most dangerous country in the whole world for woman. right up there with Pakistan, Iran, Saudi Arabia. yeah good ol America, " stick with us we are going places"

      Brandon Hitchings Trump isn't going to deport any but people who come here illegally. Btw that was bush separation kids at the border. I know a shit load of people of many races that are now voting age they hate the Democratics they change on every issue since when bill Clinton was in office even though they praised at the time.

      Brandon Hitchings don't know where have been but definitely he won state capitals. Hillary only won like 487 country's while Trump won like 2662 or something like that and if he runs again 100% sure he'll win.

      +I Voted For Hillary what the F*** does that have to do with anything? I reread your post probably 15 times trying to figure out why your rambling on about a black kid copying work from a white kids and blah blah blah. and how am I racist? because I said only pimple faced white kids would vote for Trump? well it sure wouldn't be the Mexican kids voting for him while there being scooped up by ICE and chanting "build that wall". Trump lost the black vote by miles. Asians will be next to be deported after the tariffs in China goes sideways. so what kids would you know plenty of that love Trump? Trump lost every single major city or state capital, basically any where we're people make money. only the back water, tooly boonies, who are all jacked up mountain dew voted for him. I mean when you are already fucking your sister what difference would you have if the president, is paying people for sex while his wife is pregnant, or calling woman fat, ugly, must because she is on the rag statements. im sorry but nobody has ever said "wow I want to be redneck they are super smart and valuable members of our community"
      Trump will never make it past 2020

      Brandon Hitchings people claim that unemployment was at its lowest in obamas term is not true at all. He didn't count the millions of Americans of welfare. Btw people on welfare/food stamps can buy tons of two liters and sell them to gas station for cash. then buy drugs or whatever like expensive stakes and lobsters that I can't afford(seen 1st hand) I work two jobs and barely can't afford to pay bills pay for good for me and my kids. I agree with Trump giving them food creates good enough for our military should be too for people who don't or truly can't work. Those on welfare don't give drug test and just abuse the system. I also support the border illegals come here get usa money and go home with tax free money and live good down there.

    • I Voted For Hillary
      I Voted For Hillary 11 months ago

      Brandon Hitchings Trump is restoring the economy. He doesn't lack a back bone and does what is best for America he makes deals with other countries to improve our exports which for last several years we import more than we export which is never good for any country. By this time in obamas term he has put us in massive debt and trump hasn't really raised our debt. He rolled back consumer protection giving offshoring company's chances to come back under cheaper regulation that Obama put in place that caused those company's to leave in the 1st place. So more products made in America giving us Americans more options of products and more jobs for us.
