One, you are making assumptions based on your own thoughts regarding personal interests. Two, I'm more interested in what type of relationships he has with places like Russia and their elite.

I think presidential decisions should be 100% free of monetary influence. They should be made only for the good of the country, not with an eye to fattening one's own bank account.

The looney left has proven they are not trustworthy and it's the right verses the left. First things first, deport the millions of illegal voters to get us back to a level playing field then let the battle begin.
GIVE ME A BREAK. Talk about loonies!! Illegals can't vote! Do you possibly know that to vote, a person has to HAVE ID, be on the voters list, be looked at by workers at the polling place to see if they LOOK LIKE THEIR ID PHOTO.

It gave me a renewed faith in our American citizens. Down deep I believed that we still had the spirit of our ancestors and that we would prevail, those of us that wanted our country to thrive again under nationalism and in so doing, honored our American citizens that worked so hard and gave their lives to secure this for us. Thank God Hillary defeated herself and Trump/Pence will be leading our country as we rebuild what has been destroyed.

I was so disappointed in the attitudes of some peripheral relatives that I don't care if I never see them again.

The end of bi-partisanship began long ago with Newt Gingrich and when "60 Minutes" began broadcasting your screen-namesake.

OMG
we are a family of legal immigrants and I feel that Trump used a rhetoric/ platform of anti- immigration to WIN-

the election is more than dispiriting.

If he/ his government does enact a 'MUSLIM' registry, then we are looking for an exit plan (maybe the american aunt that moved to Australia will sponsor us)...

I am paying UPWARDS of "$275,000 " federal taxes for 2016.

so yea I feel that the vast majority of Trumpies should just shut up already- I wish I could be Trump and find loopholes for income tax.


(o and my child has aunts buried in the Mission Dolores, a church that was there before the United States existed, if the "nationalists" wanna talk about who was here first )

Why? I hope he has a great relationship with them just the same as every other country.

His taxes aren't going to tell you what kind of relationship he has either.

Being that so many decisions have been made over the years that were terrible for the country I don't care about anything other than a president doing what is right.

I am not claiming Trump will either. I did not vote for him but if he does the right thing and makes a few bucks, great. I don't care.

Right? I voted for Sanders and then Stein. What I argued is if something is good then it is good.

It doesn't matter who does it.

Trump got hundreds, if not thousands of hours of free TV by the networks covering his rallies and every interview he gave.

The fact that there were negative articles about him does not equal the free airtime he received.
