Perhaps the President will unite the Republican Party to nominate Mitt Romney as its presidential candidate in August.

Because he speaks so much drivel, his handlers decided to put his muzzle on. His reputation is already in the pits, and it wouldn't do any good to come up with more bright ideas like gargling with bleach!

Playing catch-up, in his position, will be very difficult. Let's all just wait, okay? In November I hope to be back in Japan, not paying any attention to what happens with our neighbours, below the 49th parallel.

“Mr. President, you have been nothing short of historical for black America,” said Kareem Lanier, co-chairman of Urban Revitalization Coalition Inc.

Yeah. Historical in the most negative way possible and you are nothing short of being a sellout.

Nonsense and Trump of all people? It’s pretty much the other way around.

His reputation is already in the pits,

To his haters, not to his supporters.

Ok, I’ll give you that one...

Doesn't mean Trump will lose in November, this throw a tantrum create as much drama has been the trade mark of the left and Democrat supporters. Its the quiet supporters and voters that will vote for Trump in November especially after the massive breakdown in law and order recently.

He’ll be channeling Abraham Lincoln this week. He hates chokeholds. He has always supported black people. He has done more for black people than all previous presidents. He’ll be using parts of the Emancipation Proclamation in his speeches. It will be fun.

A person can say or do the most wrong and terrible things...if his job and livelihood depend on it.

He is racist. Learned it from his Dad who attended KKK events. That is all that needs to be said. He is bystander because he is a part of the legacy from slavery that allows and in most cases up to Floyd condones murder by police of black men and women. Only when Trump is in jail for all of his crimes will the country be able to move beyond overt racism in the police enforcement.

He will be a bystander in November.

Biden will always be the bystander.

He is racist. Learned it from his Dad who attended KKK events.

Maybe he attended them when Robert Byrd was still Grand Wizard for the Klan before he became a Democrat symbol in the Senate.

That is all that needs to be said. He is bystander because he is a part of the legacy from slavery that allows and in most cases up to Floyd condones murder by police of black men and women.

I don’t see one Democrat or BLM she’d a tear for retired police chief Dorn that was brutally murdered by the mob, all Black lives matter (except if you’re a black cop) Don Lémon why are you silent on this?

Only when Trump is in jail

Yeah, yeah, yeah, we get it, but it’s never going to happen, never. There are many Dems I want to see thrown in the hole, but alas....

This is why he is a political genius.

Let Dems burn their own cities. They will defy him anyway.

Why even bother. Let's just all enjoy the show.

The Justice Department sued him and his father in the early 1970s for discriminating against black housing applicants, for years he pushed the false claim that President Barack Obama wasn’t born in the United States, and in private discussions with White House aides he referred to Haiti and African nations as “shi*thole” countries.

You just said it right there, JT. This is why Trump IS NOT fit to be a POTUS.
