  1. 1. t'rump skipped a veterans ceremony on Veteran's Day and uses troops for political stunts
    2. t'rump is too weak to stand up against Saudi Arabia after they murdered an American resident
    3. t'rump would rather shut down the government than make deals to help Americans
    4. t'rump is blowing up the deficit, killing healthcare, and making us a global laughing stock

    So t'rump supporters – why are you still supporting this guy? Pence would be 10x better for you.

  2. DEMOCRATS SO CORRUPT THEY ARE ROTTING FROM THE INSIDE OUT. SO MANY LIES. JUST TELL THE DARN TRUTH AND STOP MAKING UP GARBAGE. NOT NEWS JUST FAKE NEWS GOSSIP JOCKEYS. IDIOTS

  3. Good. Make him sweat more. If he ordered this assassination or execution of this journalist. Should be given similar treatment….

  4. Once that Mueller report is out….We will see if the Senate and DOJ lives up to its credibility and integrity of Lady Justice

  5. A journalist was dismembered barbarically by a so called Saudi Prince in view of the whole world. TRump answered to the barbaric act:WE are going to receive 200 billions dollars in selling armaments to the Saudis, so LETS just Ignored these barbaric act. Another scenario MElania and Ivanka were seen entering the Saudi Arabian or whatever embassy and were horrendously dismembered. TRUMP, answered : we are getting 200 billions from selling armaments to,whatever so Who CARES?, THIS is the PRESIDENT OF THE USA?

  6. This is the commander and chief who says he has respect for the military !
    This is the president who doesn't have the guts to to combat zones
    This is a president who wants decorum. PFFFF.
    This is the president who says somebody is not diplomatic.
    This is the president who will win a golden medal for lying.
    This is the president who doesn't know where he's talking about. .
    This is the president who only sets people up to is one and other.
    This is the president who NEVER shows compassion for victims.

  7. It's unfortunate that we can't get our best people to take the job of President. But are we so desperate to fill the position that we are willing to put in one of the worst?

  8. It's so funny when Trump is stressed, he just Tweets his guilt all over the place, complete with oblivious confessions – Such as claiming that Whittaker was chosen as AG simply because he was the best man for the job, but never ever speaking of him or his appointment in connection with anything other than the Mueller investigation.
    Even better, he just Tweeted a confession that will have his lawyers apoplectic – he admitted of Fox News that he chose Whittaker because Whittaker believed there was "no collusion", and further, that that was his criteria for appointment, his "reasoning" being: "I didn't collude. Therefore any AG candidate who thinks I did, is wrong, while one who believes I didn't is right. Of course I'll pick the guy who is right over one who is wrong!"
    That is literally the "logic" he lays out, with apparently both he and the interviewer being oblivious to the magnitude of his revelation. And, in accordance with his nature, it didn't even occur to him that a professional and competent AG would have a neutral, or no opinion on it, and just let the investigation do their job in assessing exactly that. In many way, this must be the easiest investigation Mueller was ever engaged in; Trump's Tweets in themselves make the obstruction case for him!

  9. Dems massive job loss then massive foreclosures ! Then Dumb American Dems bailed out with taxpayers money the Banks trillions dollars. Meanwhile huge homeless camps formed lol 👍 Dems are geniuses !!!!

  10. The world knows the President of the United States is a Liar and Con man 👨. Trump does not care as long as he makes a profit at it. The voters of the US are true Suckers.

  11. Sanctions. For premeditated, 1st degree murder….as well as kidnapping, etc, etc. OH, YEAH, and none of this applies to the actual mastermind of this murder…….YUP, America has the BEST legal sysyem in the world……will claim NO ONE ever again………

  12. When is this conman orange lying moron going to stop destroying America? Mueller please hurry up before this pathological parasite liar destroy us all.

  13. I don’t get it Saudi Arabia attacked the World Trade Center and and now we got Donald Trump the President of the United States help Saudi Arabians cover the murder of Jamall Khashoggi we look at the video there’s one where he can’t even read 🤔
