I am too biased with regard to Iran for my in laws, so I dont want to pretend I can be fair I know I cant... But I do wonder with regard to the United States being a multicultural/multiethnic country... Trump has stepped on pretty much everyone's toes. Does he really represent America or does he just represent himself?
He loves the military... But only because they are an extension of his power? He has trashed good American veterans in the past. Why? For opposing him. Even in the most innocuous way... If he is opposed he is completely intolerant and inconsiderate.

Yeah, Trump sure doesn't put America first.
He put in a travel ban until we could do a better job of screening immigrants from areas where terrorists reside.
He is trying to improve border security like predecessors promised to do.
He negotiated new trade deals with Canada, Mexico, Europe, Japan and China.
He pushed Congress to pass measures to boost the economy and jobs.
He pushed for and signed prison reform and better treatment of veterans.
All of that was just for him. No Americans benefit from it.
We can hate him because he didn't fix everything in 3 years.
Doesn't matter that the democrats have done nothing but try to throw him out of office.
He should have just brushed that aside and fixed everything.
We should be living in Utopia now.
If he hadn't been so selfish. He wasted too much time on stuff to make him rich.
Yeah, all those manufacturing jobs he brought back were just for him and his family.
It sure will increase his luxury hotel and golf resorts' profits.
Yep. All those blue collar workers are going to show their gratitude by spending their pay this hotels.

He sure stepped on my toes. He won't let democrats put everyone on medicare.
If he did that, there would be 250,000,000 more people getting medicare.
Beside raising taxes ( I can afford more taxes on retirement) they would have to raise premiums and cut benefits.
He is preventing me from having to rejoin the workforce.
That sure hurts my toes. And my arthritic back, shoulders and neck.
I resent the fact that he won't sign the kind of "improvements" the democrats promise.
He turned me into a grumpy, sarcastic old man. Just because he won't wreck my health care and force me to work myself to an early grave.

He wants praise he wants his ego stroked. He creates crises and then tries to take credit for stepping back from the crises he created he's both the arsonist and the firefighter. He's no problem solver he's a shit stirrer.

“He’s no problem solver he’s a shit stirrer”. He has solved the problem who will win in 2020 and does it every day. The left has nothing left that anybody wants to hear except TDS statements, ongoing, every day. I dare you to find one group of people that voted for Trump that are, “fed up with his BS and lies”. Those people don’t exist. The more he wins, the more they will hate which is a cry for help.

He promised to get better trade deals.Promise kept.

He promised to take on North Korea's nuclear program. Promise kept.

He promised to get Mexico to pay for the wall. What he got was Mexico keeping Central American migrants on their side of the border. Saves us huge amounts of money that can go towards the wall. Indirectly paying for the wall. Promise kept.

He promised to improve the economy. Promise kept.

He promised Iowa that he would approve E15 fuel; good for sir quality and corn farmers. Promise kept.

Obama created the Iran crisis with appeasement. $150 Billion for a deal they had no intention of keeping. Trump showed great restraint when they shot down our drone, attacked shipping, attacked Saudi Arabia with missiles. But when Iran backed forces attacked our embassy, he acted quickly. No Benghazi style disaster on his watch.

Who created the Russian Collusion crisis? Democrats. They didn't secure their computers, their nomination rigging scandal got exposed by Wikileaks, and democrats lied to say it was Trump.

I voted against Trump in 2016. Am I fed up with his lies and BS? NO. But I regret not voting for him. He i actually doing what he said he would do.

Right now I am listening to loony Nancy Pelosi defending Iran and attacking Trump for protecting our people. I will NEVER vote for that traitorous party again. I regret being a democrat for 46 years.

Trump’s broken promises, border wall paid for by Mexico, alternative to Affordable care act, his trade war would produce fast results, he did not reduce or eliminate the national debt, due to his legislative packages pushing the nation into to debt into levels unseen since World War II. He has embarrassed himself repeatedly along with undercutting respect for the United States, giving PR to dictators and refused to protect our country from Russian interference in our elections. Worst of all he attacked the late John Dingell and John McCain

My (ex) father in law was a Trump supporter. I think they have no concept of 'left and right' the way we do. The loss of innocent life was tragic. Not sure Trump came out unscathed... But as long as he remains the most sober person in Washington D.C. we can all thank our lucky stars.

I thought the trajectory was extremely bad so I spoke up. Scary when Trump is the only person who can stop WWIII. Very scary that any part of our government could want a genocidal war with Iran, China, and Russia... or fail to prevent it. It's not the best path forward for any of us.

I know that it's not the best path forward. But a better path will take work, avoiding war will take work...

We should all be ready to bear this burden...

Probably he is mortified now. But he was a Trump supporter. I haven't talked to him about it. It's no joy for sure to be Iranian right now... Some would say it's justified. I'm not sure. Israel wants Arabs wiped off the map, and viva versa... Sad & troubling. Maybe God has a good plan... Men do not.

Don't say Israel and Arabs want to wipe each other out. Israel made peace with Egypt. Egypt wanted peace too. But both sides were too stubborn to talk. So Henry Kissinger served as a go-between, taking messages back and forth.Set the stage for Carter to get them together at Damp David. Kept them there until the settled things. Sadat and Begin got the Nobel Peace Prize, but Kissinger and Carter were snubbed.

Why did this work? They had a neutral facilitator. No troops in the area. We can't do it now. Reagan used cowboy diplomacy; send in the Marines. It has been a disaster for nearly 40 years.

It won't work now. We took sides, are no longer neutral. Israel and moderate Arabs can get along. Both want peace. But the radical Muslims are bent on world domination. They are the Nazis of the 21st century. History teaches that radicals like that can't be dealt with. Appeasement doesn't work. There are only 2 ways to solve the problem. Either squeeze the radicals with tough sanctions until their own people rise up and throw them out. That is best. The only other option is to totally demolish them. Not like WW I, where Germany was allowed to rebuild. Like WW II, when Germany and Japan were totally defeated, their leaders punished. And then the victors had to rebuild them to earn the trust of the people.

I certainly hope we an contain the Muslim radicals until the moderates get fed up and throw them out. The alternative is too horrible to contemplate. And appeasing them will only make the final war much worse than it has to be.

He made America great again and no longer the world's bankroll. You want defense, you pay for it. You want oil, you protect your own supply. We are now energy independent because of this president. You hate America? Leave while you can before it becomes even greater.

Trump wont be impeached, he will win a 2nd term. Biblical Prophecy. (My Guess)

Talking about Biblical prophecy; Someone once pointed out to me that some of the Psalms seem to have some prophetic passages. They are most evident in the Revised Standard Version, and they pertain to years of the 20th and 21st centuries. Psalm 17 seems to speak to the US entrance into WWI. 43 seems to foretell the depths of WWII. 44 the Battle of the Bulge, 45 the victory. 93 the huge Midwest floods. I read Psalms 119 and 120. Very interesting. Are they prophesy of what happened last year and what will happen this year? 119 is about someone who is being persecuted. Is this a prophesy about someone from time? Is there any prophecy at all in the Psalms? I do not know. But it is something to think about with an open mind.

Beware of false prophets


Matthew 7:15 15"Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.


According to Scripture, that is a very clear indication of a false prophet. He will most probably set another date and another, and yet people will still follow him….

That is why I approach any "prophecy" with a great deal of skepticism. Open mind,but not blindly accepting everything you hear.

We are energy independent because of this president really! It only took 3 years to become energy independent? Religion has caused more war and death than anything else since the beginning of time and that is not fake news.

Trump isn’t a god, he’s a businessman that happens to be president and is doing a very good job.... if any of you disagree then you either have your head in the sand or are just haters and are still butt hurt that he won..... as long as he keeps our country safe and our economy roaring he is awesome in my book.. besides in 5 years you will have a chance to vote in someone that will screw everything up.

I heard all kinds of screams about Trump easing coal regulations, approving a pipeline, making other concessions to the energy industry. But now he had nothing to do with energy independence? Can't have it both ways. Sure we were on our way to independence, and he helped move it ahead. Could everyone agree with that?

Sure religion has has caused lots of war. Still does.

While I am skeptical of "prophesy" and other phenomena, I have learned not to completely dismiss it. When I was working for Case and getting rides to work on an old bus run by a new businessman, one morning I woke up after a vivid dream about an accident on the bus. Going down a hill, around a curve to the left, hit a car that spun out in front of the bus and then sideswiped a semi. I dismissed it, got on the bus, and the accident happened exactly as it did in the dream. Luckily there were only minor injuries. Another time my daughter was with a friend on her birthday, and the friend's sister had given her a psychic reading. The psychic asked if either of them knew someone named Claire. My daughter's great grandfather who had passed away several years earlier. The psychic said that Claire says her hair is still beautiful. The last thing he ever said to my daughter. No way her friend or the psychic knew about Claire, let alone what he had told her.

But when someone uses "prophecy" to sway your opinion,get you to follow them,you can usually bet that it is a scam.
