  1. The idiots only pay attention to his facts ….. too stupid to save themselves. Frankly if it did not hurt so many others I would say they deserve what they will really get. and they still do …

  2. Ask conservatives and evangelicals whether a bad economy would make them leave Trump who stands up for religious freedom and got two justices on the Supreme Court!!! (Answer: No!) Ask gun owners if they would leave Trump who stands up for the Second Amendment!!! (Answer: NO!) Ask people upset about immigration whether they would leave Trump who IS building the wall and trying to stop the hordes invading us!!! (Answer: No!) Ask the hundreds of thousands of Americans who cram into Trump rallies all across this country (even 3 years after his election!!!) if they would abandon Trump over a bad economy. (Answer: No, no and no!!!) Etc., etc. etc.!!!

  3. the bar for being president of the USA is now set down to breathing

    if you can breath, you can be president !

  4. Now that sotero's COUP has failed, WHEN do the trials for Treason begin? The U.S Constitution has a cure for Treason. love of country Trumps hate for Donald. MAGA

  5. Fake news! Mexico s paying you morons! Trump made them put 20,000of thier troops on the border and now asylum seekers wait there meaning we dont house, medical, etc and today Illegal crossings are at record lows. Tartiffs are working, the Chinese negotiating because I lost millions of jobs and record number bankruptcies and had to lower their prices in order to sell into the US so tariffs are working and Americans are not so much paying for it but there will be some pain because it's going to be a little painful to correct 40 years of selling us downriver outsourcing our manufacturing base to China.

  6. Anyone can see he lies and lies. My question is why do his supporters pretend they believe him? He could say trees are not made of wood and his supporters would be claiming they've believed for years the trees have been lying. Why?

  7. Trump is very unintelligent the only sharp thing he has ever had was his ability to lie and con and blame and trash others and money from dad. His lies only work on the mentally vulnerable anymore.

  8. You know dam well Mexico wasn’t paying for that wall American people knew that I don’t mind paying for if we need it. I got the tax I got more in my paycheck than under Obama so I don’t know what you talking about. About chins I don’t care if I pay for it someone has to do something about China. We keep letting China get over will you guys ever say anything positive.

  9. Americans pay for democrats and their policies all the time. How many of them are millionaires that live outside their districts? Nuff said.

  10. Idiotic supporters believed the lie. We didn’t & know it was a lie. Where was the tax cuts he promised before the mid term? What a con man!

  11. Here is another lie, Trump will die a peaceful, natural, loving, painless, timely, bloodless, non-violent death.

  12. American Extremists or 'MAGA', as trump calls it, have no difficulty ignoring facts. Let the facts speak for themselves in 2020. Vote in the next election and get rid of this American Extremism and the gutless GOP who enable this toxic extreme right wing politics!

  13. To sum it up — Trump, simply and obviously, lied himself into the White House, and keeps on lying to be re-elected. One of his biggest lies, which you didn't mentioned, was, that he promised to make public his tax returns. Is the Democrats controlled Congress completely impotent, and will allow Trump to run for re-election, AGAIN, without FORCING him to disclose his tax returns and financial records? The Congress could pass the law (like California just did), disallowing anyone to run for president, without disclosing his/hers tax returns BEFOREHAND ? Does the Democrats controlled Congress want to have a crook in the White House, for another four years ?? It does looks like it !!

  14. Politicians will tax the American people for thier pay raise and vacations around the world while they fix nothing.

  15. djt lives in a personal bubble of HIS own making. HE is completely oblivious of anything or anybody tht HE hasn't granted permission to encroach on the space surrounding tht bubble.

    Why can't HIS supporters acknowledge tht 'he isn't there for them'. HE'S there for only one person… HIMSELF.

  16. Only 2 kinds of Trump supporters 1) billionaires 2) idiots… check your bank account then you'll know which you are

  17. Well.. No wonder Americans are ignorant… School is so expensive, people can't even manage to send their kids to college.
    But then again, you only need to go High School to learn that Trump's economic measures are a FAIL from the start. Trump would get an F in economics in school.
    Trump has ALWAYS been a conman… But Americans are idiots.

  18. So, we're no longer American, we're all Mexican and Chinese! Because we're the ones paying for his teriffs and his racist wall!

  19. Thanks for speaking the truth! Just keep pounding it out! We know it gets old having to repeatedly state obvious FACTS and debunking mr trump must be tiresome but you cannot waiver on this mission! Thank you!

  20. Well at least it is less than 5% who downvote this story.
    Pretty good considering the % of voting Americans with an IQ under 85.
    Pay NO ATTENTION to what you see, believe me! DJT

  21. So 43 brain-dead bozo's downed the facts. They wont know how stupid they have been until the sh1t fits the fan.

  22. You missed the fact that in passing the tariff burden, to keep investment parameters like P/E ratios stock investors use equal, companies have to tack on MORE to prices to make uo the difference, or net profit percentages go down. And there goes the stock market,] right in the toilet.

  23. Trump the TRAITORS are only for them self . get rid of this horrible TRAITOROUS potus for PUTIN. Jail this MOBSTER.

  24. We know. And by "we" I mean the portion of the country that hasn't gone insane and looks to trump as a "leader". One of the most mentally weak human beings ever.

  25. Did the cut pay for itself or add trillions to debt, dude will make America bankrupt that's his profession, everything he touches crashes, his airline what happened, casino's pay attention to the occupant and the derangement

  26. Tax cuts haven't paid for themselves since Reagan-nomincs started the huge deficits. Some folks have a very short memory!!

  27. Liberal lies , socialism is evil and is responsible for hundreds of millions of death's, you people need to wake up .

  28. Well trump's lies got him elected with Putin's help 💩, so he is sticking with what works. The Maggot hat wearing racist 😠 supporters don't care. Hate matters more than honor 😈 to them! Putin loves😍 trump's destruction of the USA 🇱🇷.

  29. oh i pray for Donald Trump.. i pray for his arteries to finally clog up …and his heart to explode… i pray for his unchecked Syphilis and his Dementia to turn him into a lump of mushy flesh drooling in his oatmeal..thats what i pray for !!!

  30. It's amazing how trumpers will support this clown regardless ….its as if they are enthralled by his TV image.

  31. Asswipe doesn’t have a clue about the economy, finance, taxes, tariffs, government, world affairs, history, etc. etc. etc. etc. & clearly has never had the slightest, faintest interest in any issues whatsoever facing working people. Clear as daylight. Pathetic 5th rate carney huckster. Jeezus America 😢🇺🇸

  32. Don't be sorry, his ignorant voters aren't, and if they ever are what did they expect? The dude was slimy as an eel.

  33. Let's just distract trump supporters with shiny balls of tin foil on election day. They'll be too preoccupied to go vote.

  34. Oh Stephanie, you're getting confused between "facts" and "alternative facts" and "truth" and "great big stinky fat lies told barefacedly in front of an idling helicopter" again.

  35. Tell me, who is this report for. Most people can already do the math and know who is paying for trump's policies – and the others, who SUFFER from cognitive dissonance, are trump voters who just bury their heads even further in the sand.

  36. Trump has told more than 12,000 LIES since becoming president and that makes him a LIAR! Why would anyone choose to believe a LIAR over actual facts? Trump is a con-man, a snake oil salesman, a carnival barker and a FRAUD!

  37. 2:32 someone forgot to order rent a crowd to smile.

    for tRump fans they don't seem to be very happy.
    FFS Americans VOTE in 2020, it may be your last chance to stop Dictator Donald the first emperor of America.

  38. They forgot to mention his 100 days playing golf has cost tax payers $100m+. Trump condemned Obama for playing golf then said that if he was elected he would spend all his time in the WH working for the American people. As long as someone else pays Trump will play.

  39. If anyone wants to "make America Great Again", and thinks that, say, the 1950's was the last time we were "great"? Trump should have raised corporate tax rates for 35% back to the 50's rate of 50%. That allows reductions in low and middle class rates, and POURS money into our economy.

    Economies run from the bottom up NOT top down. "Trickle down" has NEVER worked. The explosion of the US middle class was the Unions putting money into the bottom of the economy, where by spending, it flows up to the top corporations.

    Look at "Bob Cratchet" from "A Christmas Carol". His was the life of the educated middle class before the Unions demanded "living wage". That's the lifestyle the people in the GOP want for the middle class again.

  40. Humpty Trumpty should get the boot
    Humpty Trumpty is stealing your loot
    Humpty Trumpty can't make a good deal
    Humpty Trumpty your future he'll steal

  41. There's nothing more dangerous than mentally challenged individuals with the power to vote.Is how dictators emerge.

  42. We are getting paid because of President Trump's policies ,Joe Biden ,the same Biden who served as vp for Obama who's adminstration said you like your doctor you can keep your doctor,or fast and furious cover up ,pay to play for Hillary attention ,with of course lots of talk about changing the whole Constitution around taking your 1st and 2A rights and a Justice Dept. Totally out of control? That! Joe Biden ,wants to be president,if any true American can honestly say they are worst off under President Trump,then please, go jump off something high,you are holding mankind and America back from greatness!

  43. It is like listening to kids…The news people and most of the democrats have no experience in reality, live obviously in denial or are plain STUPID!!!!???? Are you all not aware of the fact that MOscow Mitch, Trump and HIS ENTIRE so called Administration are criminal THieves, THugs, psychopathic Gangsters???? All these people need to be taken either into custody where are being locked up for the rest of their days or get the chair right away. They are not at the least interested in the country or its people!!!! All they are interested in is to line their own pockets and it seems people like Mosow Mitch think they live forever??? I don't think so as their gasket is already waiting for them….hopefully!!!!

  44. Lies, lies and more lies. My head hurts with all of this dissipation that coming out of his pie hole. 2020 is coming. I am sure going to do my part and try to VOTE this loser out of the White House

  45. No one should be surprised ……. trump is so obviously a con man it's not even funny . The only people who can't see that is the gullible people he's already convinced ( coned ) . Big business , the rich and the GOP all know he a con man , that's why they put him in office .

  46. In a progressive tax system, one reason individuals are paying more money, $1.87 Trillion in 2017 to $1.97 trillion in 2018 is that they were making more money. Even if rates were lower they could still be paying more in real dollars. The follow up there would be a point on wage growth or how certain states felt the loss of key deductions more than other states.
