Trump wasn't the one to create the vaccine, but neither was it done by Biden. So why bring it up in this thread? 

 

 

 

Fat ass Trump might be better than the senile dementia Biden. If all the other Democrats can drop out of the race and Biden is now the best person that the entire Democrats can put to contest Trump, it is not even about whether Trump should win or not anymore. It is more about Democrats deserving to lose or not for not putting in any better efforts. 

Well said

Like Him or Hate Him, These Are the Top 10 Achievements Donald Trump Made When He Was President

 

Written ByBoon Hun 

 

President Donald Trump is probably the most controversial president of the United States in recent history.

 

His supporters love him and would go to all lengths for him while his haters hate him so much they wish 2016 didn’t happen.

 

But exactly how effective is Donald Trump at his job as president and is he as ineffective as many would know him as based on his Twitter wars?

 

Here are 10 achievements Donald Trump made when he was president that cannot be denied, no matter whether you hate him or like him.

 

 

Decrease Illegal Immigration

 

One of Trump’s 2016 presidential promise was to build the Great Wall of Mexico and Mexico will be paying for it.

 

To understand why that’s such a huge promise, Trump’s basically saying that he’ll keep all the immigrants on their rightful side of the border so that they won’t come in and steal jobs from the locals.

 

Now, it’s 2020 and Trump’s still far off the 1,000 miles of wall that he has promised. In fact, the wall that’s been built so far has all been paid for by American taxpayers’ money, and not Mexico, though he claimed that it’s still “indirectly” paid by Mexico though taxes or whatnot.

 

Nonetheless, he’s managed to reduce illegal border crossings along the US-Mexico to an all-time low since the 1970s in his first year of office.

 

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) also said that the wall helped reduce required personnel to maintain security along the border and reduce illegal immigration too.

 

 

Tax Reforms

 

Say what you may about Trump but before he’s a president, he’s a businessman.

Another promise made during the presidential election in 2016 was a tax reform to help American citizens and businesses.

 

His Tax Cuts and Jobs Act remains his single most shining achievement in his presidency, according to Business Insider.

Called the “biggest tax overhaul” to America for over thirty years, Trump managed to reduce corporate tax from 35% to 21%.

 

He also managed to provide temporary benefits for individuals and their families with this policy.

 

While the fiscal deficit that incurred as a result of this move is massive, Trump’s administration guaranteed that savings by business owners will be invested back into the business and Americans.

 

 

This means that “soon”, the bill will start “paying for itself”.

 

Kind of like the Singapore government giving tax rebates to landlords and expecting them to pass it on to tenants, if you think about it.

 

Of course, you’d have to think far because cutting corporate taxes sounds like a baddy thingy since companies would earn more, but here’s the thing: when companies earn more, they engage more people, and more people have jobs.

 

Bringing The Air Force To A New Frontier

 

During Trump’s days as president, he’s brought the US Air Force (USAF) to a whole new level: Space.

 

On 20 Dec 2019, President Donald Trump signed a $738 billion (S$995 billion) defence spending bill and established the sixth USAF branch: Space Force.

 

Unlike its “Netflix-like” name, it is serious business, General John Raymond said, and is tasked with protecting the US’ military assets in space.

 

It’s the first time a new branch was set up for the air force since it was created in 1947, because no one cares about space after the Cold War ended.

 

In fact, if you think of Space Force, you’d think of Trump.

 

 

Unemployment Rate Below 4%

 

Another election promise made by President Donald Trump was the creation of jobs.

 

More jobs for Americans is understandably welcomed given how there’s a 4.7% unemployment rate in the country.

 

According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistic, except for the brief spike in 2020 due to Covid-19, Trump has managed to keep the unemployment rate down.

 

According to data published by the Trump administration in 2018, almost 5 million jobs has been created since Trump’s election and the unemployment rate fell below 4%.

Advertisements 

 

It was further reported that the unemployment rate among youths and women were at an all-time low.

 

Here’s the thing: before COVID-19, unemployment claims have also fallen to a 50-year-low.

 

More than two-thirds of Americans said in 2018 that “now” is a good time to get a job in America.

 

Well, now you know why he’s so mad at COVID-19 – the record would’ve been goody if COVID-19 didn’t hit.

 

However, it should be noted that the downward trend for unemployment has started since the Obama administration, so haters can still argue that Trump is riding on the trend.

 

 

Decrease In Poverty

 

It’s not just more jobs created for the US.

The economic growth in the US is 2.5% during Trump’s presidency, a tad bit above Obama’s average of 2.3%.

 

Again, according to the White House, workers have “seen their largest nominal year over year wage growth” in nearly ten years.

 

Real median household income rose to an all-new high in 2017 and poverty rates for both the African- and Hispanic-Americans have dropped to “a record low”.

 

It’s estimated that 4.6 million Americans have graduated from food stamps (vouchers given to low-income families to exchange for food).

 

Once again, the same argument of it being on a downward trend since the Obama administration can be applied here.

 

 

Relationship with North Korea

 

Now, while the relationship isn’t exactly the best now, it was worse before Trump took office.

 

Before Trump, the hermit country was so closed off to the rest of civilisation that no one would know if a virus had wiped out the entire country.

 

 

Of course, we now that Trump has fallen in love with Kim Jong-un after the 2018 North Korea–United States Singapore Summit, with Trump being the first sitting President to have met up with the leader of North Korea. In Singapore, no less.

 

North Korea might not be happy with the US now but at least they’re not threatening to throw a nuclear missile at them every few months. Heck, Kim Jong-un even sent his well-wishes to Trump after he contracted COVID-19.

 

 

Killing Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi

 

While Osama Bin Laden was killed during Obama administration, some of us might have forgotten that during the Trump administration, another high-profile terrorist was killed.

 

Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of ISIS, was killed in October last year. While Trump’s press conference sounded like a reality TV show (he said, “He died like a dog.”), the incident was significant because let’s face it: compared to a few years back, how worried were you about a terrorist attack?

 

 

Recognising China As A Geopolitical Threat

 

According to the Economic Times, one good thing Trump has done during his presidency is to recognise the geopolitical threat of China.

 

Before Trump’s blunt Twitter threats and accusations, the world had always thought of bringing China “into the fold”, hoping that the positive experience will lead them towards democratic liberalism.

 

The optimism was subsequently forgotten after Trump brought attention to China’s dangerous new military and political aspirations.

 

This sparked off another “cold war” and China was the target of many of the US’s sanctions, including the banning of TikTok in the US and stopping China from purchasing high-tech US companies or equipment.

 

Unfortunately, Trump didn’t follow through and pulled out of many pacts, resulting in a fracture on their side of the “war”.

 

However, should Biden ascend to the top seat smoothly, he’ll likely follow Trump’s cold war notion against China but return to the various pacts required for the US to triumph. After all, Trump has become the “bad guy” and Biden can just ride on the wave.

 

 

This will bring about a sense of relief to Japan and Europe, countries which are recently placed under pressure by China.

 

 

Deregulations

 

Another notion that Donald Trump brought to the table was to cut down on red tapes and bureaucracy.

 

Regulations cost money and inhibit economic growth, he stated, and he made a sweeping form of deregulations during his term.

 

According to ET, he had signed 225 executive orders (executive orders are kind of like temporary laws and sometimes, they stay on for a long, long time) for deregulations, 70 of which are related to the environment.

 

His deregulation efforts reportedly saved America $33 billion, with $23 billion delivered to American families and business owners in benefits.

 

 

Facebook

 

Last, but not least, isn’t related to what Trump did during his presidency, but what happened as a result of him being elected into the top seat.

 

Back in 2016, it was widely agreed that Facebook had (unintentionally) contributed to Trump’s upset victory.

 

Due to Facebook’s algorithm of showing personalised news feed to their individual users, and the platform’s insistence of not regulating their content even more, users were able to “game the system” and made use of the platform to spread false information and conspiracy theories.

With Trump’s ascension, Facebook’s troubles also came calling and they were taken to task at the US Congress, whereby Mark Zuckerberg was also confirmed to be an android instead of a human.

 

Singapore also took the opportunity to pass the Fake News Law in 2019.

 

The result is Facebook taking more responsibility for their content, even going so far as to ensure that no election rigging will take place through its platform.

 

So, whether you hate or like him, you can’t deny that the man has achieved quite a lot during his four years in office. If not for him, we might still be worried that North Korea would throw something at us and all our CPF funds would be gone.

There is nothing good that can be said about the Covid-19 pandemic.  Nothing, except one:

 

The pandemic brought out the full horror of Trump's abominable immorality, and that convinced many of his former supporters and undecided voters to vote for Biden.

Your feelings of inferiority towards the powerful China in your vicinity make you say dumb things about the China-USA relationship.

 

NO!  To write "neat" instead of "near" is not a typo error.  It is your error of writing a complete wrong word instead of the correct one.  This mental lapse is not different from saying a wrong name instead of the correct one, which is what Biden did.  So you have every bit of dementia as Biden allegedly has!

You are like Trump. Just that he is President, you are not. he is in everyway more successful than you. Both of you are equally repulsive, rude and disgusting. 

 

So I support Trump.

Nonsense. We don't know how many swing votes to him too, wanting America to be great again.

Not locking down the West Coast? Isn't that the same method of dealing with COVID as Trump? But yet, when Trump did not lock any cities down, cries of how he mismanaged the crisis are heard even beyond the shores. But when Biden did the same, everyone fell silent. This is the perfect example of what is known as the Halo effect.

Also some idiot here is always nasty towards others and yet he call Trump low life?!  If Trump is low life then he is worse.  Long live Trump so that this trash can suffer.

No, we don't know that.  But we know the many Republicans who turned against Trump because they are too decent.  And now, we all want in two months to start the making America great again,  after it was nearly destroyed by Trump.

No, it is not the same.  Biden accepts that some parts of the country will be locked down.  Trump would not accept ANY lockdowns.   Biden does not say that Covid "is like the flu, and will go away",  he doesn't say that "we are turning around the corner",  he doesn't discourage wearing mask, he does not discourage testing, he doesn't hold rallies where thousands of dumb sheep get exposed to the virus for not wearing a mask nor keeping safe distances.

作为一个中国人, 我可以说You definitely have no idea about China-US relationship....

 

You also had no idea how much CCP hates Trump.
Biden taking over Trump is like a wet dream for China.

 

For sure Biden would be doing exact what he had done as vice president: NOTHING.

That's why i mention in another thread:

 

 

If Biden win, everyone will open eyes big big and see how he is going to manage this pandemic and the issues with China.  

 

The road ahead for Biden is definitely extremely rocky, internally he have the covid pandemic and it's related economic issues to solve, not to forget he did not get the support of the 72,612,622 trump's fan.  Externally he got to face the challenge from China in almost all aspects, rebuilding relationship with Europe and the occasional missiles launch from North Korea. Last but not least, how much more shit that Trump is going to leave behind for him to clear.

Biden for President. Period.

WOW... is it fair enough to compare H1N1 with Covid19??? H1N1 can be easily controlled by killing pigs.
Looking at Germany Covid19 cases, even Merkel cannot control the climb of cases. 
Blame everything to Trump is non sense.

Oh how forgetful you can be. Don’t you remember that in 2016 Trump actually lost by 3 million votes! What right did that give him to speak for all Americans? And that when the Obama/Biden ticket took over in 2008 the entire world terrified as it was facing financial meltdown. The USA did not melt down and started on the fastest growth for ages, faster than in Trump’s years.

 

But I fear you are also accurate. The USA is now indeed a racist country generally speaking. Yet Trump made that worse that in so many ways. Under Trump it became one of the most arrogant countries in the world. I believe under Biden that will change. And somehow he will take politics out of the pandemic. Let us hope so.

For those think Trump got fewer votes than Hillary but won the election is not fair and he should be ashamed, please learn more about the pros and cons of "electoral college". The election of 2016 showed the system was well functioning. The system can balance the will of the populace against the risk of “tyranny of the majority,” in which the voices of the masses can drown out minority interest.

Majority is not always right!! 

If a president is elected by popular votes, candidates will only focus on the majority and ignore the minority who may be the famers, low-tech industries, or mask markers. In fact, some countries cannot even make their own masks during pandemic and needed "donation".

Congrats.

 

That Trump is totally what parents and teachers taught children not to be. He's indecent, boastful, selfish and very opportunistic. He'll Do Anything despicable to win.

People like him will exploit conflicts instead of trying to bring harmony.

 

He's a total disgrace to humanity and yet the Christian right have a pact with this immoral devil. That's exactly what their holy book told them NOT to do. They got found out. Religion is just a convenient tool to grab for power.

The Christian right have lost all moral credibilities.

I was a obama's fan before and felt upset while Trump won in 2016. But 4 yr later, i think charming speech, sense of humor, or being a good role model of kids cannot help in such an evil world now. The world has a major player who doesn't have integrity, no respect of human right, stealing technologies from others. such evil player should be deal with by another devil. I think opportunistic, selfish, boastful are all helpful.

I agree Trump doesn't have good speech most of the time. Always give chances to others to misinterpret his meaning. He is a businessman and boss, his problem is getting used to speak whatever he likes. Obama/Biden, as well-trained politicians, are different, they can speak whatever the public like. But the most terrible thing is NOT "what u can see/hear" , but "what u cannot see/hear".

For those disagree Trump quitting Paris Agreement, i wanna say that. the carbon emission of USA has been dropped every year since 2000! even the agreement effected in Nov 2016, the drop of USA carbon emission is steadily. i have doubt if the agreement really works
1. the agreement gives fund to developing countries for helping them on carbon emission. Are these funded developing countries autocracy?? they really use all the fund on carbon emission? are they transparent enough to give true date on their yearly co2 emission? 
2. USA uses its cheap domestic oil for gasoline and industrial usage. If you live in America, are u ready to pay double or triple for gasoline to help on co2 emission? humanity has already found any better or effective energy source to replace oil? solar powered car?
3. The world now is not a utopia. we have autocracy, greed, selfishness ones around us. They always like to take advantages from the good kind. 


For those disagree Trump quitting WHO, i have doubt if WHO has done it's supposed to do. Recalling what WHO suggested at the beginning of covid19, WHO said "you don't feel sick, you don't need to wear a mask". If this logic is correct, then you should not use condom if you have no sign of STD???!!! A lot of countries just believed and followed WHO advice!! the hundred or thousand of professionals in WHO are very well-paid for what? Should they give unbiased advice? did WHO give favorable acts to a certain member? WHO has been contaminated as an arena for political game. Are you okay with ur surgeon plays political game with management while u are on surgery table? or you should walk away from the operation room if u still can do. 


racial problem, it is instinct, a protection mechanisms. One research shows two baby pics, one black one white to a group of Black babies and ask them which pic they like more. The major pick is the White baby pic! Even the black babies like white baby more. I had experience in US like.. A bunch of black guys heard me saying my own dialect, then they imitated my speaking and laughed for a min. Is that discrimination? During my time in the states, i've realized Black has a very power weapon to protect themselves. When Black is being offended by white becoz of doing something wrong or inappropriate, they would blame that to racism. Can White say white are being discriminated by Black when Black saying White is racist. During obama presidency, a black teen was killed by police and ppl didn't hold him at gunpoint. But during Trump presidency, media and black hold him at gunpoint. I understand Trump doesn't have a good reputation on that and he didn't give a beautiful statement on this issue unlike other traditional politicians. Please also consider that the number of White shot to death by police every year is always more than Black. Why it is only "Black" lives matter but not  "ALL" lives matter? Why statistically death rate of black due to use of lethal force is higher than White? is that only becoz of the president? or should we also take education level, crime rate,  resisting arrest rate by race into account?

 

I totally agree Trump has bad haircut, no friendly smile, bad presentation skill, boastful, indecent.... but i think he is leading US in a correct direction... people need a leader who is willing to do all the dirty works. Not a leader just know how to keep his hands clean and entertain people like a celebrity.

Guest Guest1069,  are you trying to post 1069 comments here supporting Trump?

 

Yes, Trump has done plenty of dirty work,  but not in the sense you give it.  He dirtied the whole country, without hardly anything positive coming out of that.  His biggest crime, in my opinion:  lying and deceiving Americans about the dangers of Covid-19.  He knew it from the start, and he kept ignoring it till the end and not taking decisive action. This was incredibly dirty, in my judgment deserving the tag of "crime against humanity".

It is incredible!  Eleven days after the election, with results having dramatically shifted towards a victory by Biden,  with legal challenges being dismissed left and right, with ever more authoritative confirmation that the election was clean and proper, without fraud,

 

today the pro-Trump marched on Washington DC to support Trump as the alleged winner.  All the supremacists and shady subversive elements were present, carrying banners and who knows how many guns.  And those who were not so shady were the usual republican sheep who didn't care much about masks and safe distancing, like they did in the Trump rallies. Didn't they read that the pandemic is raging out of control in America?  Didn't they hear that even the governors in the red states (pro GOP) are increasingly calling for masks and possible shutdowns?   I have to think of what happened in Nazi Germany,  in April 1933, when crowds of Nazis gathered in squares around a fireplace and threw in thousands of books from the groups Hitler persecuted,  like the Jews, especially the intellectual.  The poor Germans had to put up with Hitler for another 12 years until he killed himself and they got rid of him.  We only had 4 years of Trump,  so we shouldn't complain too bitterly.  Yet one wonders... why are people like Hitler and Trump allowed to be born?

precisely, Europe got no trump but why cannot control well?  The problem in the west is they still want to take about freedom and violation of human rights during this pandemic, why Asian with the exception of India, are able to control it better,  especially in SG, govt told u to do what,  u just do and no question asked. Here we trace together but in the west,  they probably protest together. 

 

Having said that,  I feel Trump should have at least 'try' to implement a plan, whether it works or not is another issue but at least show the people he is 'trying'.  Unfortunately he did nothing and still talking nonsense which anger people and make the vote swing. Trump did not lose to Biden, he just lose to himself. 

 

Biden may have a plan to tackle covid but if the people especially those 70 million die hard trump fans not going to listen and follow,  then it won't help much too.

You are absolutely right.  Trump got a first class chance to show his leadership by taking the pandemic seriously and following the advice of science.  Instead, he followed his political interests.   And you are right that the in the 70 million die hard Trump fans many will not listen nor follow.  It would be fair if these die hard are the one who get infected and perish,  but the sad reality is that they may pass their infections to the poor minorities, who are less educated and have few resources to fight the virus.

That may have been true when the framers adopted the system centuries ago. Even then though there was a massive spilt between those wanting and those not wanting it. Now it is just nonsense. The USA has changed massively since then. The electoral college is an anachronism and totally anti-democratic.

Leadership? Trump has never displayed leadership. He is a failed business owner who has lied, cheated and libeled virtually anyone who crossed him. His method of leadership is the courts. He has probably sued more times unsuccessfully than the most prominent posters here have posted. When a group of Hong Kong billionaires rescued him from yet another bankruptcy in the 1990s, he showed his gratitude by suing them. 

 

For decades he was known as a low low level property dealer who loved to see his name on buildings. He would have remained unknown to most in the USA had it not been for the chance encounter between him and tv Producer Mark Burnett who thought he would be good to head up his new reality tv show The Apprentice. At a stroke this changed his PR image from failure to success. 

 

His lying has continued daily during his Presidency. His favourite method? Floating claims he says he “read” or “heard”. He made them up and then let them run, never admitting they were lies even when proved wrong. And it all started in the most farcical fashion when he claimed and then insisted that the crowd for his Inauguration was larger than that for Obama. Even after his own staff proved he was lying, he had them doctor the photos and have his Press Secretary scream the lie at a media briefing. That was quickly followed by the Commission established to prove voter fraud and that he had actually beaten Clinton in the popular vote. This was widely promoted. Yet it was all a lie. The Commission died without any fanfare, totally unable to prove the false claims.

 

Now that the man has lost by some 5 million or so votes, he still cannot admit he is a loser. Trump never loses. He no doubt wants to find a way to illustrate that he actually won and then state he never wanted the job in the first place. 

 

He is a a prime example of the reason not to elect show business personalities to high office. Oh yes, I know the right wing idolizes the former actor Reagan. But increasingly historians are finding out that he was also more than a bit of a sham as a President. Where he succeeded was in getting most Americans to believe in themselves again after the debacles of the Vietnam War and the Iranian seizure of the Tehran Embassy. Trump split the country down the middle and then kept it that way. Lying his way out if his present predicament is no doubt what is taxing him now, far more than how to tame the covid19 virus which is crippling the USA solely as a result of his lack of leadership.

Adolph Hitler was the most controversial president of Germany in recent history.

 

His supporters loved him and would go to all lengths for him,  like exterminating 6 million Jews, throwing V-2 rocket bombs over London, etc, etc.

 

Did Trump do that? No.

If this is a analogy, this might also happen when Biden goes into his dementia state and give the same orders.

No, it is not the same.  Biden accepts that some parts of the country will be locked down.  Trump would not accept ANY lockdowns.   Biden does not say that Covid "is like the flu, and will go away",  he doesn't say that "we are turning around the corner",  he doesn't discourage wearing mask, he does not discourage testing, he doesn't hold rallies where thousands of dumb sheep get exposed to the virus for not wearing a mask nor keeping safe distances.

 

Are you sure Biden accepts that some parts of the country will be locked down????? Let's see him do just that, OK? And then we will sit back and see the Americans protesting against Biden over their God-given rights to be freeeeeeeeeeeee ....

 

As for your statement that Biden doesn't hold rallies where thousands of dumb sheep get exposed to the virus for not wearing a mask nor keeping safe distances, are you very sure about that??

No, we don't know that.  But we know the many Republicans who turned against Trump because they are too decent.  And now, we all want in two months to start the making America great again,  after it was nearly destroyed by Trump.

 

Really ... America was nearly destroyed by Trump? LOL! America was already on the decline when the Democrats took over. Trump gave the Americans a chance of making America great again by having the guts to go against China and giving the nation one of the lowest unemployment rate in modern history. And now, he is guilty of being the one who "nearly destroyed" USA? How convenient to blame all the woes on Trump. LOL!

 

Looks like Biden's dementia is another infectious virus more dangerous than COVID-19!

LOL!  It looks like Biden is extremely smart and intelligent to have become the Elected President of the United States,  the most powerful position in the world,  in spite of all that "dementia" you find in him.  

 

And while the most creepy, militant, resentful, malignant Americans had voted for the loser Trump,  those who elected Biden were the most conscious, positive, successful, understanding, compassionate people in America.

I never said that Trump is not smart.  He has the smartness to deceive others and come out the winner of his shady deals. He was also smart to enjoy the luxury and power trip of his presidency for four years, with plenty of golf, while so many Americans died from his criminal negligence and many refugees from the south committed suicide over the treatment he gave them.  Yes, he is smart.  

 

Let's see how his smartness will help him next to stay out of jail.

Yes, like you said, Trump is smart, that's why he has a lot of supporters IN AMERICA.  The number of votes he has gotten is proof. 

 

He will have ways to stay out of jail although there are allegations of his criminal negligence causing deaths.  You will see.

Yes you are right again.  No one needs to take your words for anything.  Hence your post citing Sanders should be treated likewise.

 

Many times you are here calling people names and scolding others.   If Trump is bad, you are just the same.  But of course he is way smarter and more superior.

Regardless of what you say,  you need someone smart to let you see that "more superior" is incorrect.

 

You should not use double superlatives in English.

"Superior" is already an absolute superlative or comparative.  No need for the "more".

 

I doubt that you will thank me for making you aware of this,  but I do it regardless. 🙂

On the contrary, Trump must be the one who is extremely smart and intelligent to have become the President of the United States,  the most powerful position in the world,  in spite of all that "craziness" you find in him. And while it is  the most creepy, militant, resentful, malignant Americans had voted for the loser Biden,  those who elected Trump were the most conscious, positive, successful, understanding, compassionate people in America.

Are you sure you are talking about Trump or Biden here? If you think Biden is smart, let's see how his smartness will help him get America out of its doldrums economy since Obama's time, and also to keep his own son Hunter Biden out of jail.

If Bernie Sander's so smart, he'd have stayed in the Presidential race instead of opting out and letting a senile dementia man run the race. Says so much about the modern Democrat Party now.

Nitpicking on the grammar just proves your childishness and your stupidity which serves to further show the type of people who will vote for Biden nowadays.

Biden's new slogan might well be "Make China Great Again".

I think so, Biden win = China win.  

 

This election is not about choosing Trump or Biden but more like voting for "like Trump" or "don't like Trump". Like Trump probably will support what he did to China. Anyway he still got 2 more months to create havoc 😅

I will say thank you, why not? By the way, one is not smarter simply because he is better in his mother tongue. To have that type of mindset is foolish and superficial. 换一种语言,你就是白痴?真是肤浅可笑!

I no longer cares who is America President. At least, they got elected to do something.  Ours are not elected by Singaporeans and not doing anything, and by comparion, the latter is over-priced too.

I agree. You like CB JTeo

Thank you for this video.  It speaks volumes about the deceptive right (GOP) in their pro-Trump position.

 

So far I have only watch a part of it now, because I'm going to bed.  But already in the topic of the pandemic,  she (whoever she is) is full of falsity.  She could not handle the very pressing question:  why has America the worst handling of the pandemic in the world ????  A 5% of the world population yet a 25% of victims of the pandemic !!!!   And this has nothing to do with democrats,  this is PURELY THE WORK OF THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION,  the doing of Trump as president.  Biden had nothing to do with it.   If the economy improved under Trump is debatable,  but Trump's handling of the pandemic has been A DISASTER! This is undisputable, like the fact that earth is a planet.  Who wants a lieder like that?   If she were a (neo) Nazi, she would also find that Hitler was great for Germany !!!  Why some women that look so feminine are also so fanatic defenders of the wrong causes ???

Because humans are complicated creatures.  Reasons are not as victorious as claimed, with a choice of 不見棺材不流淚, as well as 汝概代誌 hanging around.  The spoil may also be syphoned to the Loser.  Still no one to address the grievance in so many Americans that Trump has managed to allure?  Which Republican to supplant him?  How many thread and post has been vanished so far?

By the way, it only occurred to me the day before yesterday.  Argentina used to be one of, if not the second biggest economy in the world where Onassis made money to woo Callas.  Any comparison to the present USA?

So convenient to demolish the credits of Trump in bringing up the economy. As for the covid19 infections, you can ask "Why" ? You have to thank the civil liberties that you foolish American wanted to be free of masks etc. Go for rallies and all your COVID19 parties some more. Yeah, Trump should have signed an executive order to shoot anyone without a mask on sight. Let's see what you will have to say then. Let's see what Biden can do.

Just to be clear, I am not the American you refer to. But you know for almost the first time I agree with you. Yes, Trump should have indeed bought a gun. And since he was the one most against wearing masks, the first person he should have shot was himself - in the head!
