That said, as with Reagan and FDR - who to be fair were superb at it - it can be done. Trump's failure in that role does not get much attention.. Understandably people gravitate toward discussions of this or that policy because they have immediate, concrete and specific impacts. Yet, Trump's failure as Head of State is ultimately far more important and is his gravest weakness both in terms of the long term success of his presidency and the health of the nation overall.Not all of Trump's policies - partisan sniping aside and I say this as a Republican who does not like and did not vote for the President - are mistaken or wrong headed. His handling of foreign policy, though like so much of his presidency, has been somewhat chaotic but broadly effective, albeit as work in progress. His other policies, as noted, are a mishmash with a little something for everyone, even if they lack coherence overall. Yet Trump's failures as Head of State have made it that his opponents can give him no credit and his allies can admit no fault. The result is extremism and a social tension that is deeply unhealthy for the country and its long term well being. Suffice to say, the worst thing that Trump has done is to pour acid in the wounds of a society that is already deeply riven. Nothing then about Mr. Trump is so egregious as his failure to be the Head of State he was elected to be.
Give one factual example with a source other then CNN
@Justme12 you can’t be serious... do you really need someone to tell you what you can see? 🤦🏼♀️
Didn't think you could. You obviously can't hear what's said until CNN tells you what you heard. Good luck
Trump did nothing wrong in that regard, its the media taking things out of context and lying to rile you up.
This is exactly the problem. You need to be told something is wrong when it’s clearly evident. Most trump supporters are like this. This is why a leader should be extra careful with what messages he is transmitting. I’ll minded people yourselves are to be talked to as as you would a child.
The real problem is people like you, who refuse to see the truth. There has been a big difference between what he has said and what CNN reports he said. Yhats why they are called fake news.
@Justme12 @sawno en.wikipedia.org/.../Will_no_one_rid_me_of_this_turbulent_priest"Purportedly upon hearing the king's words, four knights—Reginald FitzUrse, Hugh de Morville, William de Tracy and Richard le Breton—travelled from Normandy to Canterbury, with the intention of forcing Becket to withdraw his excommunication, or alternatively, taking him back to Normandy by force. The day after their arrival, they confronted Becket in Canterbury Cathedral. When Becket resisted their attempts to seize him, they slashed at him with their swords, killing him. Although nobody, even at the time, believed that Henry directly ordered that Becket be killed, his words had started a chain of events that were likely to have that result. Moreover, since Henry's harangue had been directed not at Becket, but at his own household, the four may well have thought that a failure to act would be regarded as treachery, potentially punishable by death."
Oh, and if you don't like Wikipedia, how about Tom Clancy?
we don't need to be told something is wrong, we just need to see evidence of actual wrongdoing, which you have failed to provide. Give us a fucking quote.
He does seem to love flashing
I think he does that since the media distorts his messages. I wonder if future Presidents will continue this... albeit, not so rashly.

He didn't exactly say that. She was let in as a refugee from Somalia. He said she should and all refugees should go and try to fix their home country. Like she was raised here, educated here use that gift to fix problems in your home country. All refugees should do that. Instead the complain how terrible America is to them. If it's so bad leave make it better than here in your home country. If you want to be here then become an American like the others before you. Dont import what you were fleeing from hereTrump got it wrong with Make America Great Again.I wanted to tell him it should have been.MAKE IT GREAT TO BE American AGAIN.seems few want that.I see people proudly say I'm russian, Puerto Rican, Chinese, German and Brazilian. I correct them and tell no. You are American. It's the only place in the world you could be all those things and ain't that just awesome.
@Burtonfan Here is the Tweet again word for word which he addressed to all four of them, so we can be clear on what he "exactly" said."""So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run. Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!"""He referred the Tweet to all 4 elected members. 3 of whom were born here, one who was a Somalian origin naturalized American. I can totally understand it going to Ilhan Omar. But AOC, Thalib, Presley? He's turning any disagreeing with him into Anti-Americanism. And his assumption that AOC, Thalib and Pressley have an "original" country that different from America is based on what exactly? Race? Yet, this language gets sympathy from people like you and others who support him.You guys decide if a caste system exists in your country. If a naturalized American who was elected can fully exercise the First Amendment without being told she is not American. You can re-write the rules in your country's politics and process. But just a request that you don't be a hypocrite about it. Is Ilhan Omar American or not? I am in no delusions about what Trump espouses and what his followers sympathizes with.
You are tho. Delusional. See here's what I see. Trump got the damn thing wrong, the slogan, Make America Great Again. It's wrong. Close but wrong. Can be construed to be slightly divisive. It should have been. MAKE IT GREAT TO BE American AGAIN.I see immigrants here, waving flags of their countries, holding on to their language their culture dress, customs.Not all but most from certain areas of the world. They want what we have, a better, more secure life, more chances for prosperity and for their children to strive but want to stay true to their old way of life/living. Not to part of this culture because... reasons. we are racist, violent mass shooters, who persecute POC and that is embedded in our institutions. We are cruel. Selfish. Only capitalist souls only care about $. But yet the continue to try and come here risking their lives and the lives of children coming for a better life? Like how can we be so bad and why should we be more like where you came from. Folks have been here so long decades and can't even speak the common language. If we are so terrible, then go back to the place you hold so dear. That's all he was saying. These countries are in terrible shape. AOC paradise Puerto Rico is corrupt theifdom. The GodDamn governor resigned for financial fraud. I mean we have our issues but come on your family risked coming here for a reason either get with the program or go start a better one we want to sneak into. Abolish the electoral college. Nobody said that asinine shit when gore lost. Please stop hating.
@Burtonfan I'm not hating. Your leader is. 🙂 You can't see the tweet for what it is, you can't see his behavior for what it is, so everything he does is excused. I never said anything against #MAGA. To Make America Great Again, we need to define who or what is an American. That's why I asked you, is Ilhan Omar American or not? If she is, she's exercising her First Amendment and the President's tweet should face fire because those are fellow Americans he talked to that way. If Ilhan Omar isn't American she shouldn't be standing for election in MN. So make your mind. Either choice is fine, but let's not be hypocrites about it.If an immigrant thinks certain aspects of their culture has value and continues to live by it in a free country, is there anything wrong? What does it mean to integrate, just throw away everything that built you? Stop immigration. No country in the world makes a fuss about people coming in like US does. And AOC, Thalib and Presely are not immigrants. AOC is second generation American just like Trump.
No other county makes a fuss over imigration? Try it. Go on try walk into Mexico see how far you get. Hell try China, Try Russia. No other county let's you just walk in. Enroll your kids in school, give you shelter, food, medical services. Only here. They come for what they can get. Not to take part in this Great Experiment. Hell I even think we have the wrong people eligible to vote. Honestly you should only be able to vote for leaders of this country if you are a property owner. Just because you live here doesn't give you the right to determine how my tax money is spent. Clue. Property owners pay all the taxes. You want to vote buy the land, have skin in the game. Otherwise sit down and shut up. Again dont like it start you own better free for everyone social just society. Hey if you create a utopia... I'll sneak in and use your hot tub.
@Burtonfan America is greater than all those countries you mentioned. But there is this hypocrisy in America about sounding like the ideal country on one hand, and supporting a serial cheater, bankrupt businessman and foul mouthed racist person like Trump on the other.All those countries make the rules clear - what they like and what they don't. US advertises itself as a free country, where all men are created equal and then makes a fuss about it by using Trump as a mouth piece. Why are you the silent majority? Why aren't you just honest about what you want in regards to immigration?I lived in other countries, the lines were clear. Those countries were relatively free too. So why does America pretend it's something that it's not. Like I said, stop immigration. Stop taking in applications at all the consulates outside the US. You want your country, keep it. Don't invite people in who think they will have security and a good life and treat them like second rated humans. Or do that, but don't make them naturalized citizens.
Uh. We didn't invite them they come across illegally and damn dumb Congress won't let us build a wall to keep them out. We are not asking them to come. Free country doesn't mean no border anyone can come. Then you dont have a country. We want people to come here who want to be apart of this not tear it down. Let me ask you this. Why in say 2000 -2005 all of the Democrats wanted to stop illegal immigration. Shummer was for it. Hell even Obama was for it. Now all of the sudden we have to let anyone in? Open border? Free healthcare for Illegal immigrants. What changed? Why?
@Burtonfan Not all immigrants come to US illegally. Are you ready to punish the Americans who are abetting illegal immigration by using them as cheap labor? Because then we'll have an actual dialogue on this. After all I can't blame a man escaping poverty to do what it takes to live a life, I can blame a person who is rich who allows such a person because he is cheap labor. But Trump doesn't want to touch the topic from that angle. Clearly that won't get him votes, but the fear mongering will.The free country I said was in respect to immigrants (legal ones) following their culture. You want to say, you are free, but you all are uncomfortable with diversity. I agree there should be a line, but why are Americans are so politically correct to not defining that line? Other countries do.Build the wall. Build the wall and see if the mass shootings in US reduce to close to zero. Build the wall and see if the Americans depending on opioids get taken care of. Build the wall and see if Americans are debt free after a college education. Build the wall and see if the 40% divorce rate in America goes to zero. If you all believe all your problems come from immigrants, build the wall.Also, if you guys don't want immigrants, don't start a coup in S. American countries. Have you seen a trend? War --> government falls --> refugee situation --> they come to America --> cultural mismatch --> racism --> news --> conversations like this.
Where are you from?
@Burtonfan I'd rather not say, hope you don't mind that. 😶 I agree with Americans wanting their country to be the way it is. I just disagree being nasty about it because a lot of first generation Americans have parents who come from countries all over - they are doctors, lawyers, engineers, even soldiers. Trump's voice towards Omar can easily feel to target such people. Let's be open about who we are, what we want. I think Omar should step down because she has no idea what it took for the vision of America. She's "American" except nowhere in the world, or in US, would she be regarded one - culturally or otherwise. The fact that the Dems are putting her out there, shows they don't know what Americans stand for.
If you are not American I don't really care to know what you think. You have no skin in this game.
@Burtonfan You have to come to one page on what is an American. Ilhan Omar is an American on paper too. If you don't care what I have to say on this, this conversation is over surely. Take care.
I am disgusted at the amount of girls who say exist.That implies you'd actually want him dead you psychopaths.
I just realized that Comey Trump would be an excellent name for his hair do
And I forgot to include superiority, arrogance, narcissism; many of those who judge him are not wonderful, selfless, perfect human beings themselves, yet act as if they are, while they pass judgement on those they perceive beneath them, often in anger, frustration, and hatred, which they claim the president is full of, with the mentality of, and without attempt to reach out empathetically, before judgement, or criticism:"Anyone I don't judge worthy shouldn't be allowed an opinion, their beliefs are invalid because my perspective, which must be correct, because it makes sense to me, is valid... now I'm going to talk down on those who don't agree, as if I'm superior."
The US economy is headed for a recession.
@jayden888 explain how it wasn't a mess before he got in and what proof do you have that a recess is around the corner? I doubt you have an answer
@Justme12 You need to study economics to understand why. You can believe that Trump is your savior, nothing wrong with that. The trend in unemployment started going down in Obama's era, but regarding Trump Google about the trade war and who economist think is "losing". For a global leader to think of business solely in terms of winning and losing is a poor vision to start with. Business is mutual. And Trump hasn't opened this rhetoric just with China, he's opened it with America's closest allies which include the European countries.
@jayden888 so your trying to say that you and the top US economic adviser are right because CNN made a prediction. Did they name a single too economic advisor? In your Harvard economics classes did they explain anything about speed of growth? And how the growth under Obama was at a snail's pace and that more employed people where at a part time status during Obamas 8 years, compared to now? Your going to have to do better then your make believe economy classes. The chart is as useful here as a photo of the Kardashians.
@goaded you don't bring anything to the table.
@Justme12 It clearly shows that the trend in unemployment has been consistently downward since 2010, so it's hardly Trump's achievement, and he didn't inherit "a mess" (Obama did). What, exactly, are you bringing to the table?
@goaded if you're just going to repeat what's already been said and add old dumb dumb Obummer. Then you obviously don't have anything to bring to the table until your mommy gets it for you. Go find your safe place.
@Justme12 Aren't you a bit old to be calling people silly names? I guess you're copying your hero.
@Justme12 The photo is not as useful as a picture of the Kardashians. Like I said, this isn't new information is voiced by many economists. Not just CNN fake media. Why don't you Google about the trade war and find out.
@jayden888 I have and it's not that bad. In fact if we stick to our guns we will end up on top. China has gotten used to the constant and foolish flow of money from us. The deals our past presidents have made had nothing to do with improving our country. Their political gain is what they showed as their only interest. We've been bamboozled for to long. This has been going on for so many decades that nobody even realizes that their still asleep. Ronald Reagan tried to combat these deals and the lifetime politicians, to bad he wasn't more assertive
@goaded aren't you a bit to old to just babble blindly?
@Justme12 Trump has this way of painting everyone before him like they made mistakes. No, it's not true that all other presidents made bad decisions. So don't buy into everything Trump says, the guy himself has declared bankruptcy so many times. Read more on this because it's not the left or the Dems saying US is headed to a recession, it's many others.
Please show example with links.
@Justme12 Search yourself
Considering other nations are moving toward totalitarianism there is little to stand on in calling the US a bad place.I mean hell, we can still say whatever we want short of a threat and not get arrested, unlike some European countries.
@gotc147 true true. But the way I see it. This goes against my post but the world is doomed no matter where we go haha
Where is the proof of this?
The first was testimonials by the girls he did it too, as well as the testimonials of people he bragged about it too. The second one had testimonial for her own experience. All of these came about well before he got political. So no, in advance, it’s not a dem hit job or other nonsense like that
Trump never admitted he fooled around with little girls and the Democrats pay people to lie on Trump.
Yes, he has. Do some research past biased conservative and liberal websites and news channels. Think for yourself
Also don’t speak absolutes about someone you don’t even personally know
He’s already admitted to grabbing women’s vaginas without consent, finds his daughter sexy etc.
I have studied Trump since I was in Business school.
Is it a crime if a father brags on his daughter?
So that means you know him? No. Perhaps you know what he says to people? No. You followed him in BUSINESS school. That’s like saying I know what Obama said because I lived in Hawaii. No it’s not illegal. It’s gross when a man says about his daughter that he’d date and have sex with her if she wasn’t his daughter. He said this on CAMERA.
He never said he would have sex with her, I want to hear this , link please
Dang wtf did it do Hold on
Oh also here’s this about the pageant girls. From his own mouth. https://youtu.be/tyhXSDeU_Oc
never said have sex, dating is not sex to his generation, only your weird generation thinks dating = sex.
You didn’t watch all the videos then. I also love how you didn’t comment on the pageant one lol
Where did you get this information?The scary part is, how many people approve of your slander
It’s not slander. It’s lawsuit documentation and his own words
Exactly. Who cares. Didn't care when Bill did it either.
@Burtonfan same with Kennedy FDR Warren G Harding the list can go on Shit FDR on his death bed requested his old mistress to be there instead of his wife
Honestly we are not looking for a moral leader. I have my priest for that.
@Burtonfan lol I’m agnostic so I don’t have a priest. If we tried electing someone who was 100% moral all the time we won’t ever elect anyone.
Agreed. 2020 KAG
@Burtonfan agreed in about 20 years will need Andrew yang especially with everything getting automated with his 1000$ a month to very American. But trump is my guy for 2020. I’m curious what’s the main thing your disagree with trump on for me it’s climate change, But I’m form the Pacific Northwest so I enjoy my nature and haven’t been able to go recently because of all the fires
I guess his telegraphing his ideas. Dont tweet about it. (Ice raids) just do it. Stop warning them.Climate change. Honestly I dont think anything we do can stop it. When I say we I mean the united states. We've greatly reduced carbon emissions in the last 10 20 years. It the rest of the world. All the plastic in the ocean isn't coming from here. Its China, Indonesia, Africa etc.I was just at lake Tahoe. Its beautiful out there so I feel you on that. i wanted to jump the guy working on the MS Dixie when he threw a cig but in the lake. But Family and I'm making a scene lol. So I just emailed the website.
@Burtonfan Tammy changes one of those situations where we should probably change to green or energy but not do it as rapidly as a stupid green new deal. The bright side of that cigarette but is it only takes three years to decompose kind of like a blog or a stick
Potential rape? As in a crime not committed?
@Creepazoid As in crime not pursued by the law.
But in order for it to be a crime it has to be proven with evidence, for it to be porential would mean its just a possibility.
@Creepazoid Depends on your definition. If you go strictly by the legal definition then that is very dependent on the country and other context in question where as there is a more abstract concept of justice that denotes certain actions as crimes regardless if there is a court there to enforce it or not. A good example would be if its even possible to commit crimes in space since no country has legal right over it but if you murder someone up there its no less of a murder.
Thats just a hypothetical. What your saying is if i accused you of murder of a missing person based on nothing then people should just take that seriously until your proven innocent while stripping you of the posibilty to keep or get a job until the accusations are resolved ruining your reputation in the process, and this would all be ok because its in the realm of possibility.
@Creepazoid Well first of all I did say potential because of this and not definite and secondly there are a lot of evidence put forward to support these claims making them at least somewhat credible even though they have not been directly proven in court and probably never will.
Israel has been our number 1 allie for decades. When obama became president is when backs were turned on them. Look into our history.
Like Clinton raped women in , or Obama kissed the feet of Kings of Arabia?
@Poormanscomedian Why do you, and any trumpettes, bring up past presidents when we're talking about the current president's disgusting behaviors? Clinton is gone, Obama is gone. Stick to the topic. "Me tooism" doesn't justify anything. But since you brought it up, you want to talk about Trump's behaviors and attitudes towards WOMEN? Give me a freaking break. He paid hookers to be quiet and God only knows how many women he forced himself on who haven't spoken up. He's just a stupid, vile piece of crap who lies every single time he speaks. You're TOO POOR for him to give a shit about you, but you're ignorant enough to think he does. THAT, is your own issue.
@Poormanscomedian LMAO... you're soooooo in denial. Pathetic.
Which Americans? Black Americans? Poor Americans? Hispanic Americans? White Americans? Jewish Americans? Muslim Americans?Because some of at least one of those groups have been illegally detained for years.
@goaded Which Americans? All Americans. He follows the exact same thread as most conservatives and Republicans - everyone, regardless of race, is equal under the law and should be treated exactly the same. No racist policies like Affirmative Action, less welfare, and a stronger, more prosperous economy. Just look at it, the lowest Minority Unemployment *ever*. The lowest white unemployment in 50 years. The largest salary hikes for minority workers in decades, and steady business growth.
@GigiMary Affirmative action was simply a demand that government employers could not distinguish against people based on their race.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Affirmative_action#Origins"from 2007 through July of last year, 693 U. S. citizens 1 were held in local jails on federal detainers — in other words, at the request of immigration officials. And 818 more Americans 2 were held in immigration detention centers during that same time frame"www.npr.org/.../you-say-you-re-an-american-but-what-if-you-had-to-prove-it-or-be-deportedWant to bet how many of them were white?
Be afraid! Aparently, Fox News has stopped working for him.twitter.com/.../1166712943196680193
@Creepazoid, evil thot with boobies and nice ass, ah, the lost opportunities.
I won't lie id hit that. Even ilhan omar, i may disagree with her 100% but i can't deny she's an attractive woman. Makes me wonder how she looks like without the hijab
@Creepazoid, okay, I admit it, I got a thing for horsefaced girls if they have really big doe eyes, so I'd pull out my "fist of an angry God" mode for AOC. But she would HAVE to wear a gag.
Hahaha. Lol yea i always thought she looked like a horse
Trump never went to that Island , he has done more than any President ever to stop that kind of stuff.
You probably deserved it
@bigcuband Shut up loser. Trump cheated with Stormy Daniels, frauded people with "Trump University", asked for Russia to be part of the G7, skipped military service like the coward that he is. That's the level of integrity your leader has, America has much better men and women who can lead it.
@jayden888 Not the socialists on the democratic side.
@Poormanscomedian Regardless of Democrats or Republicans, Trump is a poor leader and a man of zero integrity. If you were killed by the Saudis, but he got business from them, guess what he's doing?
Ya like Kat Williams @jayden888
Kat Williams Is a better leader in opinions like yours, we should focus on the negatives but you voted for Trump and your people did so how many do you think are stupid? And how come nobody ever stands up for they're rights when there is an opportunity? @jayden888 but I'm a loser right
@bigcuband I called you a loser because I think a person who tells a rape victim that she deserves it, is desensitizing what could have traumatized her. I don't know or care who Kat Williams is.
Oh, ya I was being a jerk
At 12 you should be wearing extremely modest clothing I always wonder if the people this happen to are acting too old for there age
@bigcuband Who knows what she was wearing. Most girls wear perfectly normal clothes and get assaulted.
Normal to bad parents
I was wearing my pjs, sweatpants and a baggy shirt I had gotten from my step dad. Thank you for saying I deserved it and somehow coming to the conclusion it was my fault that it happened.
A lot of girls wear costumes hoping someone will get them I guess you didn't but that's like the 1%
@BattleKitten77 Aww looks like the trump supporter got offended🤧🤡 Your as pathetic as the president we have right know for saying what you said to a 16 year old when your a whole 33 year old. Choke on a dick🖕lol😭
I petition battlekitten be banned
“MAGA” but you don’t live here... that hilarious
@madeline20 he has done good things for your cluntry like the wall and trying to make abortion illegal and private healthcare. as a middle class person making a six figure income, id rather have private insurance then the system here. as a christian id rather not support abortion through tax dollars.
First of all you make no sense... what do you mean by “the wall”, he promised everyone while he was running for president in 2016 that he will build a wall and that Mexico will pay for it... um hun where’s the wall lmao? Trump is an awful man who has done nothing but cause chaos, all of these kkk members and White supremacist and these terrorist attacker’s who are shooting up places are all trump supporters... does that not tell you anything
@madeline20 there is a wall going up. nypost.com/.../trump did not encourage these acts. those crazy people acted on their own. and one of the attackers was a democrat
Ok but that definitely should tell you something if they all support him, and I didn’t know that the wall was going on I obviously have to catch up on some things. I don’t even need to explain myself when I say he is an awful human being... I though Canadians were supposed to be the nice ones lol🙊😭
@madeline20 he uses bad words but his actions are good. he publicly denounced the tragedies and white supremacy. i support politicians on their actions not words.
Only an idiot would compare him to Hitler. Do you have free speech to lie like you are doing? Enough said.
That's probably the most ignorant response I have ever read on here!
@Paige90 If you said what you are saying about Hitler , he would have you brought in, you would be made to give a blow job and would have been passed around , then strangled with wire. That would be luck , if you are Jewish, you got to be burned alive in an oven.
@Poormanscomedian It was satire
Your worse you dumb fucking cunt. The fact that you exist makes me physically ill you stupid moronic cunt.
@BattleKitten77 Still satire
Are you pro-life? If so, is it only when someone's actions align with your perceptions, and beliefs, otherwise it's preferable if individuals get aborted?
More hatred comments with no substance
@Poormanscomedian I noticed she never answered. Probably only reacts on anger, in belief she's morally and ethically superior, but has never attempted objective thought, analysis, or consideration toward her own arrogance or narcissism.
That's his PARENTS' fault
