Trump has been flip-flopping on the issues lately - from stringent gun background checks, to payroll tax cuts, to the Greenland issue

He'd say one thing, then the next thing he'd say the opposite

Ya can't take his word for it

3 ( +3 / -0 )

200 million with no healthcare

80% of Americans do have private healthcare and are happy with it.

150 million not on the payroll

And so many jobs that are filled

50 million on food stamps.

And that number will tick up if liberals can dish out more entitlements

100 odd million taxpayers, the vast majority work at Wallmarts, Amazon Package & Starbucks for $10/hr

Good

3.5 million incarcerated in the highly profitable Prison Industry

You want to let them out??? Why?

100,000 Opiod Crises deaths annually

What is San Francisco going to do about their problems with opioid and heroin addiction?

100,000 Homicides annually. 

Guns save more lives than the opposite

Unemployment (including long term/ and those who've totally dropped out of the job market) running at 25%

Yes Mr Trump......The economy is goin greaat!!!!.......lol

It is. Consumer spending is up. 68% of the US economy is based on consumer spending. Companies like Walmart and Amazon are doing way better than expected, incomes are going up, what’s not to love? So as long as people are buying and spending money, the economy is indeed better than good.

All Trump's doing but he's quick as usual to blame others. What an utter loser he is. How much more of this embarrassment can America take?

Position of weakness. The strong don’t beg others to “get along with us.” They demand others get along with them.

China, though, said trade with the U.S. has been "mutually beneficial" and appealed to Washington to "get along with us.

You would think the Trump haters here would be pleased that he's not promoting further tax cuts at this time being as how they've all been complaining about his "tax cuts on the 1%"

What’s your take? Do you have to keep checking Trump’s latest Tweet to update your view?

This biased news reporting is really something. Ya'll should have articles more like "Mexico doing more for U.S. border security than U.S. Democrats, thanks to Trump."

200 million with no healthcare

Sure, lulldapull, just make up stuff and post it, sheesh.

150 million not on the payroll

Yeah, some young mothers and kids couldn't make it to work, lol

There are more people working in the U.S. now than ever before. Unemployment at record and near record lows. Pesky facts, aren't they!

I believe the goal is to flood, overflow the media. That way we can't follow up on anything, we forget, let go.

Agreed. It's similar to fire-hosing.

The U.S. economy appears to be showing vulnerabilities after more than 10 years of growth.

10?? I thought it had only been growing since he took office?? You mean there was growth during the Obama administration? This can't be right...

Trumpers will believe whatever he said, regardless of the fact it is all lies.

And in the end, it's the farmers that get hurt:

What's the difference between Trump and the USA Women's Gymnastic Team?

Trump flips more....and the Women's Team is "winning"....

So he announced possible tax cuts, then changes his mind the next day. Stable.

3 ( +3 / -0 )

What he is talking about is essentially what Bush did to fund his wars, take money from the Social Security Fund and leave an I.O.U. Bush took 2.3 trillion dollars. How much this "tax cut" will take from the fund is not yet clear. This is NOT the income tax. It's our social insurance fund payment. And he wants to take it just to support his re-election chances by doing things that will multiply the effects of a downturned economy. There will be no reserves anywhere. Just a short term payoff to nonthinkers who will see a slight boost in their paystubs almost immediately and start spending like it's permanent. Goose the economy any way possible. Til it's cooked.

Trump is a complete idiot!

Has Trump ever been tested for scopolamine in his system?

It would explain a lot if someone is slipping it into his drinks or air conditioning.

Great comment on CNN today....

Trump is flipping more than Simone Biles....

Every minute, it’s something else with this malignant moron.

So in the past 48 hours, regarding the payroll tax cut, the answer from the White House/President has been no/yes/no/yes/no.

Wow, what a stable genius.

There should be a moratorium on covering anything he says or tweets! 100% of the time he either walks it back, or doubles down and exacerbates his original error or lie.

There I fixed it for ya! lol!

Trump talks out of his butt so often that even HE doesnt know what he is talking about.

5 ( +5 / -0 )

He said he feared "it will be perceived, if I do it, as somewhat elitist."

Trump's a shill for the putative 'elitists'. He's in office to ensure their wealth continues to grow, along with his and his family's. (See Ivanka Inc. deals with the CCP). He's giving the 'elite' even larger subsidies in his ongoing programs of socialism for the rich.

While the national debt, to be paid for by younger generations, balloons.

There should be a moratorium on covering anything he says or tweets for at least 24 hours.

Either that or have the media reporting anything he says use a large asterisk as caveat.

He just raped his base and they will probably claim to love it.
