It's bizarre that he used videos of events happening under his presidency, saying this is what America will be like if you vote Biden. The fools will lap it up of course.

'Disruptor'? Who wants or needs that? Disruptors are obnoxious, unsociable, uncouth, unprincipaled loudmouths. They are dictators.

No, we need that. Both parties have been taking advantage of the American people for two long and notice I said, both parties, so yeah, we needed someone to shake the system to its core and have a President that thinks about American people and puts America first.

Who wants or needs that?

We do, we don't need the same tired old establishment system because these people act nice and look good globally? Don't need to window show. Doesn't help the nation.

You can't negotiate or discuss anything with sociopathic children like that, they are impossible to deal with because of their narrow minds, lack of character and gross immaturity.

I agree and that's why the Democrats should never lead anything, they don't want to discuss anything, it's their way or No way.

Trump has all those negative traits and many more which is why he doesn't have what it takes for social settings or humanely discussions on anything. He's undiplomatic and egotistical,

Like I said, he's unrefined and good on him for being a disruper.

everything to him is me me ME. People with those attitudes are unsuitable for a democracy, unsuitable for a diplomatic discussion because they can't and won't make compromises on anything, not even suitable for discussing issues as simple as a football game. Trump and his ilk have not progressed beyond the 'Is to!' 'Is not' stage in mental development. He has no discipline and no character at all. Even when I wasn't so mature I would've never said the uncouth things he does and I would've never done what he does now. He's a chest thumping loudmouth. He pouts and cries like a baby when things don't go his way. He has long proven his merit which is less than zero. So why should anyone listen to, look up to or even acknowledge the legitimacy of or pay any attention to an ignorant concrete-skull hateful hypocritical loudmouth like Donald Trump? The answer is obvious.

Ok, you're approaching this from an emotional point and that doesn't help anyone, but the fact of the matter is, Trump is great and that he bucks the system is absolutely refreshing, his policies are what's important and not how he talks or acts and with over 289 accomplishments and what he's done for the black community and lowering the unemployment is just off the charts. None of the Democrats or even Republicans that talk a good game and smile in front of the cameras would do anything like that and because Trump is so close to Biden and getting closer is the clear indication that more and more people don't want the establishment on either side and that's a fantastic thing and good on Trump to taking a sledgehammer and knocking it down.

Trump has none of these traits or qualities and his maturity level is 7th grade at best. Not only is he not suitable for office, he's not suitable for mature adult discussions of any kind. You can be educated and have diverse views but with boors like him you can't talk about anything, he thinks he's a GOD. Trump is not suitable or fit for any social setting whatsoever and he doesn't even have what it takes to be a human being.

The New York City Police Union, which endorsed Trump, would disagree.

The New York City Police Union is not the U.S.A., is not NY state, is not even NYC, And I can bet that some NYPD union members wouldn't even want to assist Trump if he was in danger. A lot of people in the Big Apple and thruout the NY/NJ area totally hate him and Rudy too, for good reason.

Dee jaybee  He proved himself worthy of the job by his lifetime achievements before he ran for office 

Lesse. 6 bankruptcies, a phony money sucking university shut down, shut down casinos and strip joints and bars in Atlantic City and Las Vegas, a failed self named airlines, can't maintain two marriages and cheats on his current one, body shames pageant contestants with disgusting sexist swill talk, brags about assaulting women like a 7th grader in the gym class locker room, convictions for racist discrimination in his housing projects, sucking up to a foreign head of state, brags his incestuous lust for his daughter on radio and TV, obnoxious reality TV show host, rapes a 13 year old with Epstein around, not the kind of 'achievements' I'd be proud of.

I don't care how much money he may have (or has stolen), money can't buy you love and it can't buy respect or friends. And he doesn't truly have any of those things and he deserves none of them, from me or you or anyone else.

Trump's presidency:

181,000 dead from pandemic

Economy broken

Highest unemployed in history

Unsuccessful trade wars

Protests and riots in the streets

A wall that was never built

Highest number of advisers arrested and convicted in U.S. history

Children held in cages

Unarmed people executed in the street

Fear indeed.

can't really believe he still in the white house, not even situate for the 1st four years.

Whether it is a country, a team, a marriage, or a coherent thought, Trump can’t keep anything together. All he can do is promote hate, fear, greed, and jealousy.

Disruptor'? Who wants or needs that?

I would ask the question, " Compliant followers? What human progress can be achieved with that?"

You drag on with you adjectives which are too unreasonable to address Starpunk but something you cannot deny about Trump is this: He proved himself worthy of the job by his lifetime achievements before he ran for office unlike the compliant followers who populate the Political Class who have demonstrated no positive attributes.

Case in point: Congressional approval currently; 8%

Trump's approval rate currently: 41%

Yours?

I think Trump is the best thing for America and for one thing the guy can't be bought by these elites, doesn't care what either side thinks and will work with both sides on any issue if it helps the country, the donkey and the elephant won't. The best thing about Trump is, the man is not a traditional politician and that's good and he's a disrupter and that's the best thing I like about him, in your face, raw and uncut and NOT politically correct. Republicans like Kasich and Bolton are part of a dying breed and that's great! They're outdated and Trump reinvented the GOP and good on him.

I also voted for Reagan in 1984 and served in the military during his second term. For all the ups and downs Reagan had a sense of humor, he had charm and he talked with Gorbachev to bury the Cold War hatchet. People have forgotten about that, the newly achieved peace that came from that was thrown away.

I voted for Reagan as well in 1984, but times were different in those days, California was a Red State and safe back in those days.

Anyway, Reagan and the Democratic House Speaker Tip O'Neill clashed over issues but they were friends, civil to each other. And Reagan as POTUS was diplomatic, he would've never said something uncouth about what he'd like to do with Lady Di for instance. He was always more classy than that.

Well, people in general were classy back then, not now.

In fact it was very much the same way for all POTUS's afterward, even the gigolo Clinton, even the idiot Dumbya Bush Jr., and Barack Obama was always courteous and friendly in a diplomatic manner - even when others gave him lippy crap and spread stupid (incl. racist) about him. Agree with him or not, he's got class.

Yes and the Republicans always allowed the Dems to roll over them and both sides talked a lot, but they never kept their promises, Trump on the other hand did.

Trump has none of these traits or qualities

Thank God!

You're describing Nancy Pelosi pretty accurately though.

I voted for, and will vote for all of the candidates who is not a member of the Ruling Class. USA is established to be a Classless society but the Ruling Class has emerged as those who will burn the Country if someone takes their Power away. This Class serves only the interests of themselves and those who provide them the money they want. Trump has been a blessing for Americans and it can be seen by those with open eyes. As Trump supporters force the Overton Window open wider, race-baiting democrats rush to push it closed, causing death and destruction.

I voted for Reagan, and believe me, Trump is no Reagan; more like a Mussolini. One half clown, one half narcissist.

Get some opinions from across the spectrum and try to post political news, especially anything that deals with Trump or COVID-19, that just deals with the facts instead of the writer's own spin on the events.

100% agreed!

JT is getting very boring, with blatantly partisan articles like this popping up daily in either the opinion or "news" sections.

He is the lowest of the low. Sold his soul to the Russians, sold the U.S.A. out,

No, the 3 year Mueller investigation and impeachment hoax trial didn’t show any of that.

This is just an opinion piece with no real facts, just twisted lies to pander to the left. I guess they need it since the truth is too scary for them. President Trump is the greatest President the US has ever had since Reagan! Get ready of another 4 years of awesomeness :)

I sure hope so for the survival of the Republic.

Worst president ever.

Nothing else to say.

I got something to say. Best president ever.

A threat to the world in general

How do you figure? He's started no new wars, is working on extricating us from the Middle East, has met twice with North Korea's Kim Jong Un in efforts toward a peaceful solution there, resisted pressure to attack Iran after they downed a U.S. drone, and, get this, negotiated a peace treaty between Israel and the UAE.

Yeah, you're gonna have to walk back that one.

MAGA? We are worse off than in 2016.

We were better off than in 2016 until the plague from China hit the world. And we're on the way to recovery even with all the Dem governors' and mayors' lockdowns.

Remember, voting for the Democrats is like a chicken voting for Colonel Sanders.

... Trump is no Reagan; more like a Mussolini. One half clown, one half narcissist.

Reagan was a second-rate actor who was still able to play Potus to the gullible crowd with a little help from his friends ruling the right-wing establishment of Amerika. Mussolini could read and write and was an intellectual giant compared to ignoramus Trump who is as an "acting" president is a transparent gammon, a mere wannabe Pussolini. However, no thanks to the superannuated Electoral College, the contest between Biden and Trump may be too close for comfort, a fact that ought to finally push the Dems to abolish the EC if they hit the Trifecta in November.
