Trump claimed he don't have a racist bone on his body but also he don't have a brain in his head which instead is full of sand from sticking it in too often.

First Lady Melania is from a "GoBack" her parent who entered American on chain migration are also from a "GoBack" and even Trump is partly a "GoBack". Like him, three of the congress women are born in America and would have no restriction to being president. The fourth, Omar can't since she wasn't born there.

More than 50 million American or more than 20% are some sort of "GoBack".

Trump is a populist gutter president, a MEGAGOB. Loud mouth and don'y mind throwing insults at anyone who crosses him. There have been many like the sacked and fired White House generals. The mass exit of staffers.

Trump is struggling to deliver on his campaign promises. Obamacare. Mexican paid for Wall. Rebuild the bridges and roads. China trade war. North Korea. Iran. Israel. Racist border guards. The list is long.

One year, six months, and two days to go. How many more scandals can he fit in before he is kicked out of office?

Ah Glenn, your math is a bit off. It's actually FIVE years, six months, and two days to go. Trum's re-election is all but assured if the Democrats keep dancing to his tune.

His "go back" comment is typical New Yorker BS. Nothing more and nothing less. The important point is that the four Congress members have all reacted poorly to it, and are stepping all over Speaker Pelosi and also overshadowing the race to become the Democratic nominee. If the election becomes "Trump vs. the Squad", then Trump wins easily.

'Go back' captures core of Trump political agenda

It does not, Colleen. The core of Trump's political agenda is Making America Great Again and that's exactly what he's doing even with all the opposition from Democrats, RINOS and the media.

Trump 2020

Who's gonna beat him? Kamala? hahaha

His rising poll numbers tell a different story. He may be dumb for a lot of liberals and yet, no one is buying their crap.

First Lady Melania is from a "GoBack" her parent who entered American on chain migration are also from a "GoBack"

Well, she wouldn’t need to, she loves her country. Omar doesn’t and she doesn’t have to stay so..... 

Trump is a populist gutter president

Thank God!

Trump is struggling to deliver on his campaign promises

Not really, not on most of the issues, but on the others the Dems would never help him.

Obamacare.

The Democrats don’t even know how to bring down the premiums ans it seems like Obamacare won’t be around that much longer.

Mexican paid for Wall.

Ted Cruz is trying to sieze El Chapo’s vast $12 billion fortune which he would apply for the wall, so essentially Mexico (in theory) is paying for it.

Rebuild the bridges and roads.

And the Democrats wanted it, but they’re too busy trying to fight a losing battle to try and impeach this President or try to label him a a racist when they could have tried to work with the President on fixing our faulting roads and bridges.

China trade war.

Dems like what he’s doing and want him to hang in. They will take time, won’t be settled overnight.

Racist border guards.

Maybe a few, not the majority.

Trump is inciting hatred and it will backfire when some deranged person decides to go and kill Muslims or black women.

Poor reactions from the Trump supporters trying to justify their idol president.

disgusting response, from the post,

Border agents are also suffering and lashing out — 62 current and 8 former employees are under investigation for offensive posts made in a secret Facebook group that mocked migrants and lawmakers, including Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, one of the subjects of Trump's recent ire.

No, but The Squad is.

Trump hate map

"President-elect Donald Trump’s xenophobic rhetoric didn’t just push his fellow candidates to the right on immigration (in what has become known as the “Trump Effect”). It’s gone beyond the political world and injected itself into everyday life — and, in many instances across dozens of states, in a very violent ways."

The slogan basher during his campaign was "lock her up". The next campaign slogan basher will be "send her back".

If we follow what Trump is saying, any American that is a)descended from immigrants and b)disagreeing with his policies should leave the country. It's almost too ridiculous to even type, but this is what the President of the United States is saying. This would destroy the very fabric of American society. But Trump and his followers would be just fine with it, apparently.

Trump is inciting hatred and it will backfire

Actually, the squad are the ones that a injecting hate and confusion as well as division and they will fail, especially when you look at their poll numbers, Ilhan Omar is around 9% that is absolutely atrocious.

when some deranged person decides to go and kill Muslims or black women.

How did you feel when a deranged Bernie supporter stalked congressman Scalise was shot or when Andy Ngo was hit with a milkshake, attacked, beaten and his equipment stolen because he’s a conservative Asian and gay?

Poor reactions from the Trump supporters trying to justify their idol president.

And the same to you guys for supporting the squad.

62 current

8 former

....out of 19,437 border agents is a drop in the ocean, so then the majority thankfully are good and law abiding Americans, great to know.

The current occupant of the White House is a dangerous embarrassment to the country and to the world ... he is the poster child for mental illness.

Trump should demand to be impeached. The Democrats would be totally against it then.

AOC: He's mean to my Squad and a racist!

Pelosi: That isn’t Impeachable.

AOC: That’s not what my tweeter following is telling me.
