I like Presidents who don't call veterans "sucker and losers".

My grandfather, who turns 101 next month was a proud member of an anti-fascist organization. In June of 1944, it was called “The United States Army”. And they didn’t tolerate Nazis or their sympathizers.

Well, the only thing I will say is, good that they finally opened it to the public even for a brief moment

Just like when he brushed off honoring our Vets in France, Trump wouldn't have taken the time yesterday to show his appreciation, and the nation's appreciation, to those who fought and served, because he hates the military - it reminds him of all the qualities he lacks - dignity, integrity, courage....

-There was fog that day and they had to turn the helicopter back.

Really? The official White House response said it was rain....

Except there is always a ground transportation option planned in case of bad weather....

Face it, he just didn't want to go visit in his words, some "losers and suckers", when the weather would make his pompadour fall flat....

Me too, and I prefer politicians whose rich daddy doesn't pay a quack to find reasons, however lame that his spoiled brat son might be exempt from military service. So the spoiled brat can start using the dozens of millions he got from his daddy to get richer grifting and conning, later scamming his loyal cult members in the violent cult he started in hopes the brat and his cult could later overthrow the government and have the brat appointed Kaiser.

Time's a wastin'! We've got to nail all of these traitors and criminals right now!

 He directly spoke racist comments

This is a lie. He most certainly did not.

For me, Biden’s words ring hollow. Especially when he’s planning on giving people who broke laws concerning the sovereignty of the United States each a whopping $450,000. I don’t think any veterans receive close to that much for their pain and suffering and sacrifices. Some vet gets his leg blown off defending the borders of the United States, Biden wants to reward those who’ve violated the laws the vet lost his leg defending. Makes sense in this backwards administration. Biden mouth the words but his actions say illegal immigrants are the spine of his administration.

Why does every article about Biden seem to draw commenters and their anti Trump ravings? Some weird phenomenon.

Exactly, spot on.

This is not accurate in the least. Settling lawsuits is not “giving” money to people. 

Giving it to non-citizens, even US soldiers citizens born in the country if they have fallen in battle usually get $100,000 on average. Unless citizens they shouldn’t get any compensation let alone $450,000

Settling lawsuits is not “giving” money to people.

As a citizen and a taxpayer, would you agree that your tax dollars are spent to pay illegal aliens for breaking the laws of your country?

You clearly don’t understand what’s going on here.

I do, but it seems like Joe or his party doesn't not to mention even the ACLU called Biden on keeping his promise to give payouts to these illegals.

It's probably pretty hard for many non-US Americans to understand the majority of US Americans rejected Trump at the last election, and want to see him gone from politics. US Americans have limited choices in elections, but the majority do NOT want to see Trump and his armed thug backers back in DC. And as long as the company running this site allows us to voice our opinions, many will do so. Far right/pro-Trump outlets are easy to find on the Internet, and on cable TV or any other media. Trump even has his own site, called TrumpBook of even more big lies or something like that.

As well as voted and supported him.

and want to see him gone from politics.

Why would he go? Because the left want him to go?

Where I live in Texas and it is a big city you still see Trump signs, I would vehemently disagree with that statement.

My gosh, what on Earth are you talking about?

Biden's own son served. It means a lot more to a person who has family in or has been in service.
