My heart is heavy for Donald Trump and people who are in such a sad place that they see him as their savior. I refuse to hate him; he is still a person of inherent worth and dignity, although his behavior is abhorrent. I feel so blessed to live in a democratic system, that, despite its flaws, is still strong enough to survive this assault on its safeguards. EVERYBODY GO VOTE!! (even Trump supporters)

As long as this President can fill up two stadion and arena's with his open and transparent speeches and targets, call him whatever you want.
In 2020 we know how he will be named….the greatest leader ever….Crazyness was many decades before….and it stops.
If someone say he is a lunatic, it is also an offence of ALL the peoples voted for the man…..then the majority is lunatic and time for this man to go looking for a very sain balanced smart country….this critic person would love Venezuela, the majority don't.

This is a great example of a lack of integrity in journalism. In the first two minutes they make false claims that trump made statements that he most certainly did not. If you start the piece off with lies the rest is trash. Even Snopes says it is false. The n they say it is now mainstream thought. Well I guess it will be if people listen to this garbage without fact checking. What is really insane is the number of people who believe this crap just because it backs up their bias. https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/trump-second-coming-king-israel/

I know he is a psychopathic tyrant . i have degree in Registered Nursing and biology.
Im also Christian and believe the Bible is the infallable Holy Word of God. I fear trump fulfills many many of the given traits and deeds of the last days final world dictator prophecy refers to as the anti-Christ. There are so many details provided in scripture. Make a list of every trait offered and one would recognize he is actively fulfilling every detail except yet future events. The final conclusion to his agenda will be the destruction of democracy and persecution of jews and finally Christians. His behaviour is the opposite of that of Christ completely and he wants to replace Jesus as the Saviour of the world. His character and values should not be exemplified or supported. The persecution of immigrants and muslims are only the introduction to America of abuses against humanity.

Quit with the psychobabble BS. White America voted for Trump because he promised a return to an American era that has long passed. Trump is a calculating politician telling 40% of Americans what they want to hear. It's reminiscent of the late British Victorian Era and Germany in the 20s and 30s.

What Americans don't/can't grasp is the path of world history. China was the seat of world power in the early millennia of written history. When that civilization declined, the seat of world power went west to India, then the Egyptians, Greece, Rome, and Western Europe (France, England, Spain, Portugal). After WW2 America became the dominant world power. Slowly, maybe not in this century, the seat of world power will return to China.

Trump uses unfortunate choice of words but Trump is just following our American traditions like – expanding the frontier to new territories, Greenland etc, having the right to purchase guns and protecting our borders. What is wrong with this???

He's a narcissist and an ignorant fuckwit. That was obvious from day one, no need for a mental health professional to know this much.

I bet years later everyone will find out that something really was wrong with Trump. Do anyone remember President Reagan? they coverd for him also and after his death it was said he had Alzheimer for most of his term.

Assumptions, theories, twisting facts. Look at his accomplishments!! I came here for news…. I thought this subject of bashing , would have gotten old. But you can’t report anything good happening because of Pres. Trumps policies, so keeps your subjects very narrow and boring and not educational. .

A loser from Florida, a gigaboo, bitter bitter loser. Has too much to say with such low IQ.
It appears the President is able to super troll the left and liberals with such ease, that even so called educated individuals but super sensitive individuals none the less, are super triggered.
Example: psychology is a slippery slope and the president simply proves it where psychiatrists can abuse and manipulate a non precise science to suit their narrative, yet the same psychiatrist (whose recruited by liberal deep state), who uses his own medicine for himself, is easily trolled.
They have zero ability and grip on the President when he’s able to play them so easily.
The real issue here is that the President IS different.
And they have no clue when he’s serious or trolling and he does this to them with impunity.
And yes he is not a politician and has to grow in his boots. Which he is proving able to do at a phenomenal rate.
And beside this all, the President is shaping the US with improvements at pace.
Strange how a so called mad man is so good for the country.
That he has a sense of self importance and an ego, no doubt, and all the other psychological analysis recognizes this, but also monitors his ability to harness those personal character straits for the better of the country and the US.
There are enough checks and balances in the US system to keep anybody in check and reign anybody in when it’s necessary.
But what the liberals are crying about is THEIR loss of power, and their loss of ability to control and manipulate instead of co-governing and co-steering the ship for the better of the country…… so …. whose the narcissists?
Me thinks the sneaky underhand slippery liberal leftists …….

So why isn't he being impeached – he's obviously UNFIT to be president. In fact, he's the embodiment of the 7 deadly sins.

Now that the investigation is over, the psychiatric card is pulled out … As far as Denmark is concerned, it makes perfect sense. Greenland's mineral resources are rare and are won by companies owned by China.

Our entire well being is being sacrificed to enable trump to become Pres & continue his atrocities this is happening bc the Republican Party is so desperate to get their horrible policies passed that they r overlooking all the craziness of trump! What we shud b most afraid of is the fact that republicans r complicit & they r letting him get away with his racist inhumane policies! When history records what he’s done ALL of his supporters in the WH will go down in history as the enablers of a egotistical narcissistic racist womanizing pres in the history of r country! When he nukes r country they will b considered worse than anything HITLER ever did! Trump is the cause the GOP is the effect that will destroy r world!!!! May God have mercy on the future of r world!!
