Wow, you should run for office! This is what people want to hear.

Words matter. Celebrities like Trump have considerable power over what people think and do. Trump knows this and uses it to his advantage and the detriment of everyone else. Trump has stoked long smoldering hatred and resentment and the flames are burning our democracy to the ground.

Of course this loser politician uses it as an opportunity to bash Trump.
Pathetic.

And of course Trump continues to ignore the problem. Can't even keep his attention on it for 15 mins

That's your opinion. Most would say Trump is the reaction to Obama and Federal overreach. The onus is on the Left to stop instigating this situation. Just sayin.

And that will be the end of the Relublic (to paraphrase Jefferson).
These are Trump campaign talking points filled with assumptions, deliberate inaccuracies and false conclusions. I say this without malice toward the poster as it is clear that Trump has made many people afraid and angry and armed them with a litany of excuses to continue their adulation of his divisive ways.

The USA once was a place where citizens joined together to work toward solutions to the many challenges and problems associated with human life on this planet. It is disheartening and shameful to hear and watch Americans consciously decide to choose hate and fear and division and unabashedly walk behind a man who seeks to stoke those emotions and sentiments as opposed to doing the work necessary to keep we the people united. A leader, worthy of this nation, would not barrage us with grievances and obstacles. He would not pit Americans against Americans. He would not seek to isolate us from fellow humans and other cultures and nations with his anger and greed and bigotry.

Peace!

Again, I have no answers. I freely admit that. But doing the same damn thing over and over gain is obviously failing
It's a mistake to blame it on Trump. The shooter was quite clear in his manifesto that the invasion (his word) of millions of low-education low-skill migrants will make it much harder to achieve ambitious social projects like universal health care and UBI. Those are not right-wing goals.

Giving a free pass to Trump inspired deplorable behavior and domestic mass terrorism.

Absolutely disgusting. Do you think the left and the media is your enemy too?

You need to read the manifesto. The shooter quite clearly states that the influx of millions of dependent migrants will make it harder to achieve ambitious social projects like universal health care and UBI.

Now... ask yourself... WHO'S advocating for and campaigning on universal health care and UBI? Trump? No. It's the Dems.

Wow.... right back at ya! You and I are on the same page.

The leftists need to stop prioritizing the interests of illegal aliens over those of American citizens. They are destroying the schools and neighborhoods in which they congregate. (I know Herndon is particularly bad, but I believe Annadale has its problems too.) Yet we have these nutso Democrats saying they want to abolish borders (that's what decriminalizing illegal immigration essentially is) and bribe more of them to come here with promises of health care (that millions of Americans don't have).

It is so bad that when I asked a leftist if she would give money to illegal immigrant children over needy American children, she said she would give the money to the illegal kids. She said they're poorer and need it more.
