Sure there is - but don't say the country is anything less than great. The country has done great things for the rest of the world and is the greatest country on the planet in the opinion of many. There's a reason why our country leads the world in immigration. We have a great thing going. For a billionaire to complain about our country, a country that has allowed him to fail numerous times and still be left with billions of dollars......well I'd say he has no reason to call the country anything but great.

That isn't Trump's message. He is selling the fear that America has declined -- the dog whistle is that white people are being overrun by uppity blacks and brown people from other countries.

Perhaps. But there is always room for improvement. example: enforce the law.

I think the country is declining, not because white people are being overrun. I think the country is declining because people from the left and people from the right keep on fighting each other.

I think many people are very proud of this country like you said, but I don't think "make america great again" is an insult. I think Mccain is a kick ass war hero, but do I respect him and view him as a personal hero? Hell no. He is not the only hero out there, and many who fought for this country deserve to be well taken care of. Mccain failed a lot of veterans by being the biggest hawk. (in my opinion)

Not like I am defending trump and I dont think he is a great person, but I do believe he can get something done. Obviously, people from both parties never enforced the law.
