Trump also referenced his nicknames for two of the leading Democratic presidential contenders - "Sleepy Joe" Biden and "Crazy Bernie" Sanders 

This lowbrow attaching of insulting sobriquets to people's names is right out of pro wrestling promoter performance and really demeaning to national politics. Since it's clear Trump intends to persist, I invite the Democrats to decide on something equally demeaning to Trump and flaunt it at every turn during the 2020 campaign. No more Mr. Nice Guys!

Trump preying on the fears of the simple folk again. Let's hope enough voters with an IQ of over 50 realize how they have been (and are still being) fooled by the Conman-in-Chief.

Yeah. Well, it's good he has no ability to govern considering the damage he could do. Let him have his rallies; meanwhile, his dirty laundry will be exposed, piece by piece.

When Trump speaks he has one foot in the gutter and the other in a pile of dog poo! Promises he made in the last campaign but failed to realise. Insults and tweets and name calling.

LOL, they can dish it out, but they sure can't take it. Anyway, the monikers for Biden and Sanders are spot-on.

Greatest president ever.

Au contraire! When Trump speaks he tells it like it is.

He's gonna have a heckuva lot more people who didn't vote for him in 2016 voting for him in 2020, that I can tell you.

Man I dig this guy. Looking forward to the nicknames. Trump speaks like the best president yet. Let's see who'll put on farmers clothes and trucker hats when they go to Iowa; change to a fake accent and carry hot sauce in the purse when talking to blacks; promise a female running mate when speaking in front of women. Trump never changes his accent and even wears a suit in Iowa.

Strange that all the liberals trying to ignore that 3.2 GDP.

-9 ( +5 / -14 )

Greatest president ever.

Debt is rising. Med costs out of control due to TrumpCare. Also, is there is big recession coming? Lots of out of control debt like 2007. I'm saying if the Trumps keep the economy steaming then let's elect Ivanka next with the Trump magic. Eventually we can elect Barron Trump. Can the magic economy continue with the Trumps? How much longer?

I keep hearing his supporters say this but he’s a compulsive liar.

Did he tell the crowd his dad was born in Wisconsin?

that 3.2 GDP

That's wimpy compared to what Bill Gates (a real Billionaire) if he were president. It would be 5.2 GDP at least if Bill Gates were president. Bill Gates is about 50-100x richer than Trump and he would make the US that much richer if Gates were president of the United States.

Trump also referenced his nicknames for two of the leading Democratic presidential contenders - "Sleepy Joe" Biden and "Crazy Bernie" Sanders - and predicted that Elizabeth Warren's candidacy was already over.

Those opposing DT are gonna complain about the name calling while they support the Democrats playing games like the Russian Conspiracy until they didn't get the answer they wanted, claim DT obstructed the investigation while they have tried to obstruct everything the President does regardless of how much commonsense it makes like building the wall that previously they supported.

Admittedly, Trump is a successful liar but remember, you can fool some of the people all the time and you can fool all of the people some of the time but, luckily, you can't fool all the people all the time.

"Sleepy Joe" Biden and "Crazy Bernie" Sanders

The only way to determine who gets the democratic nomination is put them both in a fight pit. 2 men enter, 1 man leaves.

Really? The Democrats don’t even know what that is.

considering the damage he could do. Let him have his rallies; meanwhile, his dirty laundry will be exposed, piece by piece.

It has been through 2 years they exposed his laundry and everything else and the Democrats are still trying and they keep shooting fish in the barrel and the funny thing is, while the Dems keep trying, keep failing and keep screwing up, they are handing Trump his second term, so keep away and do what you guys do.

"I think Pocahontas, she's finished, she's out."

She's 1/1024 in.

Med costs out of control due to TrumpCare

Um, we're still on Obamacare except for one of the most hated parts, the individual mandate penalty, thanks to that RINO McCain who cast the deciding vote to keep Obamacare, the other RINOS and the Democrats.

luckily, you can't fool all the people all the time.

That's why Trump is going to win bigly in 2020.

Man I dig this guy. Looking forward to the nicknames. 

I can't wait to hear what he calls Mayor Pete.

It's very possible both of them remain in the fight pit and Kamala Harris emerges victorious. Trump will have a field day with her.

Dimwit Donnie, The Dunderhead, Clown in Chief, and the most accurate, The Idiot Apprentice...*

If those names are accurate, how did he beat the candidate backed by the media, Hollywood, the establishment on both sides of the aisle, and the sitting president of the United States? Oh, that's right, Putin. hahahahahahahaha

I don’t find his name-calling that interesting.

I find his ‘telling it like it is’ approach to attacking his enemies more fascinating and repulsive - birtherism, non-existent sex tapes, Ted Cruz’s father being in on the JFK assassination etc. You know, the ‘telling it like it is’ sincerity.

Psst - Serrano, seven of Trump's closest associates met with Russians and lied about it. Trump lied about the Trump Tower meeting. Mueller indicted 25 Russian nationals and three companies.

Oh, Mueller also caught your boy trying to obstruct justice over 10 times...

Oh my...

Yes if liberals still talking about mueller and thinking they have to choose either Bernie or Joe to have any chance at all, they won’t win.

Trump is the one still tweeting about Mueller, he can't let it go!

Mueller should throw his hat into the ring. That would shake things up.

I guess the liberals here have never been falsely accused of anything in their lives.

when that happens you get a little indignant and have trouble letting it go. Especially when Dems say oh that’s great you weren’t indicted but we are going to keep investigating you anyway.

You're not far off.

The Democratic nomination process is going to be the Oppression Olympics Gladiator Death Match.

Who is more privileged than who, who is more 'woke', who is the biggest victim, who had to walk the furthest to school dodging bigots while barefoot in the snow uphill both ways...... and something tells me that Joe Biden's demographic characteristics don't fit the bill.

Trump is the reason hate crimes are growing all over the country. He has given haters the signal that he's with them.

Why are Trump and his sycophants at these rallies still obsessing about Hillary Clinton and John McCain? To cover Trump's lack of achievement?

Trump with his tweets and potty mouth encourages the extreme right misbehavior and vile attacks. He never takes any responsibility for what he stirs up.

Liberals and the media can’t let the Mueller report go either.

Trump is the reason hate crimes are growing all over the country. He has given haters the signal that he's with them.

What a bunch of hogwash, absolutely NOT true, in the same way that crazy Bernie supporter tried to kill Congressman Scalise, I don’t blame Bernie for that, has nothing to do with it. These people acted on their own, No one told them to go out and shoot people or kill them. I thought Obama was the worst President ever, but I never thought about shooting his supporters, that’s my choice, my decision and my dislike for the man is not going to make me do anything I don’t want. The problem with liberals is they always blame others and never hold the perpetrators for their actions and hold THEM accountable, which they should always.

Why are Trump and his sycophants at these rallies still obsessing about Hillary Clinton and John McCain? To cover Trump's lack of achievement?

Probably in the same way liberals are obsessed with Trump, Kushner and Sanders.

"They should change that to the Radical Left Democrat Party," he told a crowd that nearly filled the 10,500-seat Risch Center in Green Bay. "It's crazy what's going on with them. Oh, do I look forward to running against them."

You know, I'm not a massive fan of Trump, but I feel he's a necessary evil with the way the world is going these days. He's calling out the left for what it has become: a bunch of lunatics who constantly contradict their own values.

bass 4 funk, you mean like the Charlottesville marches? The banning of books and sometimes burning of "witchcraft" books and other offensive material. The right wing considers it part of their first amendment rights. The militias on the Mexican border rounding up people with assault rifles?

@Zichi

Promises he made in the last campaign but failed to realise.

The US economy just turned in 3.2% growth, easily beating expectations. Quite a few of his promises are being realized, like it or not.

-1 ( +5 / -6 )

The vulgar current occupant of the White House continues to show how unqualified he is to govern ... We the People of the United States of America deserve better.

Economic growth at 3.2% and unemployment sustained under 4% and the Dems hate it. They want nothing more than a severe recession regardless of the suffering it would cause. Getting elected is all that matters. Impeachment, coup, open borders, recession - all legitimate for the purposes of power.

This lowbrow attaching of insulting sobriquets to people's names is right out of pro wrestling promoter performance and really demeaning to national politics.

But it’s fine to spend decades calling your opponents Hitler, white supremacists (when your own party is the home of the Klan) and are science denialists (when your own party rejects males are males and females are females and are part of the anti-vax movement). Dems can’t expect to go around lying with impunity forever.

Yet the deficient which Trump promised to cut is out of control. Trumps ICE is out of control arresting American residents and citizens and holding them until they can prove their status. Sometimes this is months in length. Trump is not subject to US law as the US Justice Department is in his firm control. Soon the "sugar high" from the tax cuts will be gone and Trump will do his best to destroy healthcare, medicare, Medicaid and social security.

arresting American residents and citizens and holding them until they can prove their status

That is not true. American residents and citizens are people born in the U.S. and people granted citizenship and residency by the U.S. government. The people getting arrested are those entering illegally and/or exploting a loophole in the amnesty clause--e.g., the "migrants" currently on top of la bestia.

like the Charlottesville marches? 

The person they say is responsible for the woman's death is supposedly a white supremacist; the victim was a white lady. He has to be the worst white supremacist or else it could have been an accident.

Actually it is very true, ICE is arresting US citizens.

Ok YuriOtani. You've made a point. But you can't expect any system to be perfect. But it's interesting to note that at the end of the nyt article, it was suggested that if law enforcement would enforce the immigration laws, there would not be a need for ICE. Republicans are not against immigration, and that's not what I hear out of Trump's mouth.

You know, Okinawa has a better lifestyle than my hometown. People live longer, fish and produce is far superior. There is less violence and kids score higher in math and science. In other words, a better standard of living. I would love wash ashore and demand to be a citizen and given full rights. A job at a company that guarantees income for life is also wanted. But guess what? It ain't gonna happen like that. And I'm sure you don't have a problem with that. Bit you seem to be ok with anybody doing that to the US.

yamada1043 - We the People of the United States of America deserve better.

The American voters had three choices. Sanders, Hillary, or Trump. Luckily, the best man won. (That's what is known as a figure of speech, BTW.)

CrazyJoe - Trump is the reason hate crimes are growing all over the country. He has given haters the signal that he's with them.

"Haters" are the reason hate crimes occur. Many people today refuse to accept the responsibility for THEIR OWN HATE. It must always be someone else's fault. Never their own. If everyone would take responsibility for their own hate, and keep that hate under control, there wouldn't be any hatred.

zichi - Trump is the one still tweeting about Mueller, he can't let it go!

Is that because the Democrats keep saying the Mueller report gave them the green light to further investigate Trump?

-5 ( +1 / -6 )

CrazyJoe - Why are Trump and his sycophants at these rallies still obsessing about Hillary Clinton and John McCain? To cover Trump's lack of achievement?

Because Hillary was never truly, or properly, investigated.

And the media outlets keep asking politicians questions about Hillary, and McCain.

-5 ( +1 / -6 )

lincolnman - Oh, Mueller also caught your boy trying to obstruct justice over 10 times...

"Trying to obstruct justice"? That must be why neither Mueller, or Barr, charged the President with "trying to obstruct justice"? After years of trying, the Mueller fishing expedition didn't find any proof of "trying to", or of committing, obstruction of justice. I notice that elected Democrats are only claiming obstruction, but haven't actually filed any such charges in a court of law where these Democrats would have to testify under oath, and provide actual proof of their claims.

-6 ( +1 / -7 )

The problem was started by the liberal media and comedians. They will ridicule President Trump whatever he does and they will attack him everyday with unreliable faked news.

I don't think there will be no feuded between the President and the media if the liberal media was neutral and not biased against the President Trump.

Look at Late Night Show, Stephen Corbet, he attacks and ridicules the President Trump on every show. Without President Trump, he doesn't have material for his show. Also, the CBS' "The Good Fight" TV series it was all about anti-Trump.

Who start the fire?

It was the liberal anti-Trump media and comedians.

Why they do it? Because, they want fame and job. They don't have talent and so they become "Me too".

In Australia, journalists and comedians who ridicule and attack former Prime Minister Tony Abbott and the US President Trump were employed by the liberal left wing government own ABC TV.

It's a career short cut to the top with a little talent.

If the media want to reduce feud between the President and themselves and then report the true story and not hear say gossip jealous story. Journalists must be neutral and must not be biased against anyone when they report the news. If they want to choose their professional as tabloid writer and then they are gossips writer and not reported.

-3 ( +2 / -5 )

It is not a matter of a few Americans being arrested but thousands. The problem is Trump is demanding that standards for arrest get lowered and thus innocent people are being arrested. QUE if a person is not white european then check their citizenship status. How many American citizens carry either their birth certificates or passports with them at all times?

GDP is high than under Obama, who had the Bush economy to crawl out of, but much less than Clinton, Johnson, or Kennedy.

Oh, you have a short memory. Ten investigations were conducted into Hillary and the 2012 Benghazi attack with allegations of scandal, cover-up and lying, none of which found any evidence to support those allegations.

Or maybe you forgot the false accusations of Hillary about Uranium One.

Yes, a very short memory.
