I voted for Trump and would do so again. I don't expect other countries that are now being held to held to new better for the USA standards to like Trump. They would love him if he coward to them and gave them whatever they wanted. If the other countries loved Trump I would be concerned. Why does anyone care what the other leaders think. I garentee they are not looking out for our best interest in anything. Most would like us gone.

I certainly don't. I do find their grasp of the obvious quite refreshing though.

Any time people from other countries or opposition party members deride or laugh at President Trump they are only doing him a service. This means he is succeeding and they are showing their inability or unwillingness to face reality. For you naysayers here in the USA, how is your pay scale or your 401k doing? How are your stock market investments doing? Oh darn I forgot, this is Obamas recovery.

Trust me, you couldn't do worse than our Prime Minister. Known colloquially as "sock boy", "soy boy", "sock puppet", "Mr. Potato Head", etc., he was born a millionaire Communist with a trust fund, so never had to work.

His sole, self-directed purpose in life seems to be the imposition of political correctness on the rest of the world, as well as importing all the world's terrorists & setting them free in Canada.

It is now a serious criminal offense in Canada to criticize Islamic extremists who actively foment terrorism. Simultaneously, anything Christian is "racist" and considered "anti-Muslim". Seriously.

Our illustrious leader got elected by promising legalized marijuana for the welfare class, and free-everything-for-life for all illegal immigrants & indigents.

Here's a quote, to the United Nations, revealing what he thinks of European-origin (i.e. Caucasian) Canadian citizens:

"The very concept of a nation founded by European settlers is offensive to me. Old stock White Canadians are an unpleasant relic, and quite frankly, replaceable. And we will replace them." -Justin Trudeau

There is much, much more to dislike, but that's a taste.

BTW, he contributed $20 million of taxpayers' money to the Clinton Foundation to help her try to get elected, and a further $650 million to various world despots and dictators to help them become more feminist...

And people complain about TRUMP???

Everyone that I know voted for Trump! There was no other candidate that could run this country and still be honest with the people. And after this Kavanaugh circus, I will never vote for another Dem. I don't believe that any of them could be trusted. Have to laugh at Booker and Harris. Two more liars trying to head up that party, what would be left of this country with them in any position of power. And the "old white woman" that didn't leak Fords letter.... what a joke that party has become. I kind of think that the "blue wave" will be bye bye!

And then there are the staunch republicans like Jeff Flake who are really trust worthy. He needs to be tarred, feathered and run out of town on a rail.

I believe that he is already on his way out. Hope so anyway. He seems to be as ignorant as the dems. Wasn't it him that got cornered in the elevator by a bunch of uneducated young women?

The Republicans and Democrats are actually one party, and they pretend to be at odds. The media helps maintain the charade, and they all get together for drinks after work and laugh at how gullible Americans are. Meanwhile, we argue about the "difference" between the two parties like useful idiots instead of supporting a third party that would actually get something done.

The only time you'll see them overtly work together is when there's a threat of a third party, then they'll create some new rules as barriers to entry like they did a few years ago. Dems and Reps hate Trump because he's basically a one-man third party.

And if they hate him, that's a good reason to like him, despite whatever other flaws he has.

The last third party candidate to win more than 5.0% of the vote was Ross Perot, who ran as an independent of the Reform Party in 1992 and 1996, respectively; the closest since was Gary Johnson in 2016, who gained 3.3% of the vote running as the Libertarian nominee. The most recent third party candidates to receive an electoral vote were Libertarian Ron Paul. My point here is unless their is a drastic change a third party vote is a wasted vote. President Trump could raise those percentages but I doubt he could win by running as a third party candidate.

I think I would be in favor of term limits for the house and senate just like the president. I haven't been in favor of term limits in the past but the way things are going now I believe it's time to get rid of a lot of these lifers. Perhaps a maximum age limit. Maybe they should have to pass an IQ test also. LOL! Mad Maxine is an example of an intelligence deficiency. How in the world did this person ever get elected. Oh Yeah, she's from LaLa land. Too bad California has ended up like it has. Such a beautiful state. One of my favorite places to ride.

Voted for Trump in '16 and I will do the same this year.

I'll never even consider a democrat again.

I think more and more people are having the same feelings. I always voted for the person not the party but after watching this circus my message to the politicians is I won’t stand for doing something just because of your party affiliation. I hope both sides get the message.

I used to research the people, and hated that being registered blue or red limited my choices in the preliminaries.

what with the last 3 years of demoRat crapola, I will pull the Red Lever and to hell with the Blue.

The only time I voted demo (I hate to say this) was for Jimmy Carter. Back when I was stupid, gullible, naive, ignorant of politics and thought government was looking out for me. There is no democrat that I will vote for. EVER....... Some of the current Repubs (RINOS) Are even more repugnant.. I feel sorry for our younger clueless generation and the future of the country as a whole because they are buying into the indoctrination from the public schools.

Isn't it strange that no one has yet mentioned what crow tastes like. Guess that the border was closed just after the election too.

There were a few people that had to eat crow after Trump was elected, and all those that said they were going to Canada if he was elected, but are still here in the USA. Just wondering what happened to them.

If we can get rid of some of these ignorant "D"s" we have a darn good chance. How can they be so dumb as to put up with Nasty Nancy and Corrupt Chuck and those that lied their way through a fake "investigation". 4 more years.
