According to Trump most Mexicans are either rapists or gang members.
I'm not going to spend lots of time "defending" Trump, I didn't vote for him and he had a poor choice of words in that initial outing. The reverse implication from the left is that there are no bad people who come across the border, but logic says that it is a mix of good and bad people.
Lordy, Lordy that is why he is so desperate to build a wall. Trump believes that South Americans will bring in MS-13 gang but MS-13 began in Los Angles.
The wall has nothing to do with racism and everything to do with limiting illegal immigration across the southern border.
As for MS-13, they may have started in LA, but they were and are primarily made up of South American immigrants, mostly illegal, and specifically those from El Salvador. MS-13 is one of the most violent gangs in the US.
Trumps wants more immigrants from countries where the people are white like him. Trump has no issue with immigration he has an issue with race.
Pfft, race has nothing to do with it. If we are going to grant legal immigration status to people, why not make it people who are most likely to a net add to the economy instead of subtracting from the economy? We have enough people in the US to do the low skilled labor jobs, we don't need to "import" them. As for the higher skilled trades, allow immigration as long as there are no US persons to do the jobs. Computer engineering is a perfect example of not having enough skilled workers in a field, so the tech industry "imports" workers from nations like Pakistan and India. I have worked for small start up companies in the tech industry for the last 10 years, at several companies at least 25% of the programming engineers have been from those 2 countries, with a few people from the UK and Ireland, but most of the green card workers were brown people from none white countries.
When the white supremist and the Nazis were rioting in Virginia Trump told the nation that the Nazis and the white supremist were “fine people.”
There was no rioting by those dispicable people, the rioting was started and caused by Antifa. Why is it you types always forget to mention the violent fascist group Antifa and the violence they have unleashed? You only talk about the one person killed when they were ran over by a car, but not the violent confrontations started by Antifa?
You live in an alternate reality created out of “alternative facts” commonly known as lies created by the ungodly greedy. When FDR was president racism was the rule not the exception.
The above response proves who is living in a world of "alt facts". You can't even get the facts of those events correct. I don't agree with anything those groups say, but they have a right to say it as long as they remain non-violent. Antifa who claims to be anti-fascist, yet acts and behaves very much like fascists, attack those they don't agree with and try to silence those who's speech they don't like, just like Hitlers Brownshirt's used to do to Hitlers opponents.
When the Black Panthers killed people, Obama did not tell the country what “fine people” they were.
Do you mean the BLM, Black Lives Matter, movement? If you do, then Obama did everything he could to prevent any sort of relation between the cop killers and the BLM movement, he had plenty of help from the MSM as well.
During the Cold War no body trusted the Russians.
I disagree with that statement, the American left has always had a soft spot for the Communists and have supported them in South America and anywhere else the USSR was trying to expand their sphere of influence. Your own continued push to enact socialism/communism in the US is proof enough of that.
In fact, we were convinced that a nuclear attack was immanent that there were designated bomb shelters in many big buildings. City Hall was a fall out shelter and the windows were blocked up in the bottom story and only a few of the windows have been restored. In school we had drills to shelter under the desk when the Russian bombs hit. Several generations lived in mortal fear of what the Russians would do.
I have a lot of those same memories from my early school days in the late 1970's and into the 80's.
As a side note, I don't think everyone was scared of the USSR, there were lots of communist sympathizers through the generations, to include a current sitting US Senator who got married and then had his honeymoon right in the USSR capital. Bernie and his ilk have always been fans of the USSR and only now don't like Russia because they are no longer communists.
Nothing has changed the Russians are still the Russians oh there is one thing that changed, Trump has been promised a large chunk of a Russian oil company if he sells the United States out according to dossier compiled by the top expert on Russia today. Trump openly admires dictators because he wants to be one.
Don't you recall Obama telling the out going Russian leader to tell Putin "not to worry, I'll have more flexibility after the election"... Clearly prior to 2014, Obama was willing to deal with Putin and assured him of his co-operation. Can you imagine if Trump had been caught saying the same exact thing? In fact Obama didn't even consider Russia a world threat and mocked Romney for his "80's foreign policy" for calling Russia out as a geo-political threat. Obama said ISIS and global warming were bigger threats than Russia.
Where do you live? Do they mine coal there?
I live in CO, they used to mine coal here, now we are an oil state, in fact I live in one of the oil richest parts of CO, lots of oil drilling going on out here. I love it!
The first thing Trump did was eliminate the rule that you could not dump coal so close to a water way that prevented the chemicals used to treat it from being washed into the drinking water.
Considering it was a "rule" that was written and went into effect in Dec of 2016, less than a month before Trump took office, I can see why it was revoked. Obama liked to use the EPA to target industries he didn't like and didn't support his campaign. How many EPA "regulations" did Federal Courts overturn while Obama was in office.
We just had a major water way polluted with chemicals and people could not drink the water for weeks.
Just? As in the last few weeks? Nope, I looked and it was in Jan of 2014...
Trump changing the rules, so the coal fired plants that are a major source pollution will continue to put hundreds of thousands of tons of pollution into the air each year.
Obama put rules in place to shutdown the coal industry, those were some of the rules that were overturned by Federal Courts. Clean Coal is an actual real technology that emits almost no pollution, and it is certainly more cost effective than wind or solar.
Thousands of people die in America each year from the air pollution generated by coal fired plants but that does not matter to Trump.
I think that is bullshit and you can't prove it.
The Russians can’t wait for Trump to destroy NATO they have already invaded one country and taken over when NATO is gone there will be no obstacle to taking over other small countries. Trump is like the little cartoon dog jumping around the big bull dog. He absolutely can’t wait to do the Russian’s bidding.
Who was running the US and promised "more flexibility after the election"? That's right, Obama who refused to name Russia as a geo-political foe and 2 years later they invaded another country... You want to talk about Trump?
NATO needs to pay their fair share, they have been living safely thanks to the hard working American taxpayer. If they don't pay their promised amounts, the failure of NATO will be in their hands, not Trumps. The US has contributed enough to the security of EU nations, we have footed the bill for the last 30 years.
The public schools have been drained by the Republicans to give bigger and better tax cuts to the ungodly greedy.
That's another lie. We spend more per student than any of our "1st world" allies. The problem with school funding is all the extra BS that schools think they should be teaching. Students can't read or write properly anymore, but they can tell you how many made up genders there are. Kids are dumber today than they were 30 years ago, and it has everything to do with what and how they are teaching. Teachers unions are also a huge drain on school funds and resources, they should all be disbanded.
You get what you pay for. The Republicans cut the funding to local schools so far, they can no longer afford to hire substitutes when teachers are sick.
Don't you mean when the selfish teachers go on strike? Depending on where you live and who controls the school districts purse strings, depends on how schools are doing. The US education system was one of the best in the world prior to the creation of the Education Dept. They have done more to destroy our US school system than any other force in the US.
The kids are just told they can stay in study hall or go home for the day and this happens several times a year. But big oil and big coal companies were given tremendous tax cuts by the Republicans.
Stop with the BS. A majority of school funds come from local sources and not the Federal govt. In fact one of the reasons I think recreational pot passed in the US was due to the first $40 million in taxes collected would go to the school construction fund, the greedy politicians have now dipped into that new revenue source and are starting to spend the money on all sorts of pet projects, like they do.
Have you ever heard of TABOR, Taxpayers Bill of Rights? You would hate it, it forces the politicians to go to the people if they want to increase any taxes in the state. You were talking about the power of the people, that's the best power the people can have, limit the greedy politicians and force them to work with a budget, just like a majority of the Citizens they are suppose to represent.
