Trump is done. DeSantis 2024.

says he's 'more committed' than ever

He needs to be committed more than ever.

In New Hampshire, Trump promoted his campaign agenda, including immigration and crime, and said his policies would be the opposite of President Joe Biden's.

At least Trump did a good job of summing up the Republican platform.

But leaders of both parties are united in their love of the biggest welfare queens, large corporations.

Trump is as big a socialist for the rich as Biden is.

The only exceptions are Bernie Sanders and the "Squad".

I don't care who it is as long as the next president ends the war. If it's Trump so be it.

-30 ( +12 / -42 )

“said his policies would be the opposite of President Joe Biden's.”

Mindless and childish revenge fantasy. Of course his supporters will lap it up.

I’m thrilled he’s running again. He has no chance of winning but it’ll be a joy to watch the show.

14 ( +30 / -16 )

I’m more angry now and I’m more committed now 

Angry that he lost the last election and angry that his little coup attempt failed.

there are so many people who are angry about what’s happening in Washington.”

Anger. It’s what’s for breakfast, lunch, and dinner at the GOP. With a side of grievance.

16 ( +28 / -12 )

Well, the big boss of the MAGA gang is back in the ring..

With the stupid things that Joe is doing with Ukraine conflict, he is making Trump's job easier..

The ONLY good thing about Trump is that if he had been re-elected, I assure you that no war would have happened in Ukraine, as a good friend and partner of Putin, the war would have been avoided..

In the end it would have been the best for the US..

Trump is done. DeSantis 2024.

Believe me, if the victory of the GOP is inevitable, it is preferable that it be Trump..

DeSantis is a worse fascist, for the sample now he is suppressing the books in schools in Florida..

De Santis is a danger to the country, for the minorities, for the freedom and for the democracy..

-20 ( +9 / -29 )

Yes! Make America great again!

Make the world safer again.

The greatest leader of any nation of all time.

-28 ( +11 / -39 )

His rhetoric is tired. His only achievement will be to cruel the chances of the GOP in '24 by exacerbating the civil war inside the GOP.

Wimpy little Ron is going to have a nervous year ahead, hoping like hell Trump doesn't release those links to his murky southern Italian Mafia family background.

He's as crooked as they come.

What’s Trump’s end game? He knows very well that he won’t get the Republican Party nomination unless nobody else runs for Presidency. Mike Pence, DeSantis ( probably going to get nominated ), Mike Pompeo, Nikki Haley, Ted Cruz, Sen. Tim Scott, Gov.Glenn Youngkin are all going to run even though they haven’t announced it yet since announcing it too early makes the excitement extinct! If Trump doesn’t get the nomination he’ll probably create a third party just to satisfy his ego! This will break the Republican voters and Democrats will win easily! Trump is hellbent on destroying the Republican Party one way or another. This is karma coming back to bite the Republican senators who should have impeached him for January 6 riots and got rid of him then. Having said this, I personally still prefer Trump to DeSantis because with Trump I know what I’ll be getting but DeSantis seems like the devil disguised to end America one way or another!

Let him run, he will just split the vote, make the Rep. look like fools, again, and hand the election to whomever runs on the Dem's ticket.

What’s Trump’s end game? 

His ego is too big to admit defeat. In the "old" days, he would have been institutionalized.

15 ( +22 / -7 )

He says he's 'more committed' than ever...

That only the half of it: millions of us would love to see him "committed" to Georgia State, for starters, and then "more committed" to the US Atlanta Pen where he can only dream of golfing (because "justice" matters).

7 ( +12 / -5 )

Let him run, he will just split the vote, make the Rep. look like fools, again, and hand the election to whomever runs on the Dem's ticket.

Oh, how I hope Kamala Harris gets the nomination! Both parties will get their behinds served up piping hot by the electorate.

Interesting enough, being committed (to an insane asylum) is probably his best defense against being imprisoned for the rest of his life.

Because he is guilty as Hell of multiple felony offenses.

7 ( +14 / -7 )

He will lose against DeSantis

He will lose to almost any other candidate. Other politicians are wise to him now and will know how to handle him in the primaries.

7 ( +11 / -4 )

Somebody should get Trump declared mental incompetent,a man facing criminal and legal investigation,acting as if he can ignore his own deluded reality

What’s Trump’s end game?

Fleecing his fans for their hard earned cash again. His campaign funding will be under very close examination this time, he’d better dot all the Is and cross all the Ts.

4 ( +8 / -4 )

He's vile, nasty, corrupt. America deserves to have him as the next president.

-2 ( +7 / -9 )

Having said that, I wouldn't mind seeing Biden have another 4-year term!

-5 ( +6 / -11 )

Trump is done. DeSantis 2024.

Not according to the latest polls, his followers or himself, I think the people can make that the decision, not the left.

-18 ( +5 / -23 )

Lindsey Graham's prediction in 2016 that if Trump is selected as the Republican nominee it will "destroy the party" is now coming true...

Trump cultists are not Republicans, they only support the Ultra MAGA King. The regular Republicans are tired of Trump's crimes, lies, and racist hate speech - but they could tolerate those if he could only win - he's shown he's a consistent loser...just ask Dr Oz or Kari Lake...

So the Pubs will likely split in 2024, with the traditional wing nominating Pence or Haley - and the MAGA wing leaving the party to run as a third candidate - handing Joe another term.

Let's see how Trump started off his campaign...

After saying for a year that the classified he took belonged to him, that his lawyers said in court you should "expect" to find classified in Presidential records, that he then said he declassified by "thinking about it", he now flips completely and says he only took empty folders, no classified...

https://www.businessinsider.com/trump-mar-a-lago-documents-empty-folders-classified-2023-1

He insulted his former Secretary of Transportation for four years and a Blue Chip Republican Elaine Chao with a another repugnant racist attack...

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2023/01/26/donald-trump-elaine-chao-president-racist/11127116002/

Believe me, if the victory of the GOP is inevitable, it is preferable that it be Trump..

I wouldn’t be so sure, with the damage Biden is doing and with 75% of the nation feeling that the country is going in the wrong direction and 2 more years of this guy and his policies, be careful.

DeSantis is a worse fascist, for the sample now he is suppressing the books in schools in Florida.. 

Yes, kids don’t need to learn about absolute benign racism. If the parents want to teach them that at home, that’s their choice

De Santis is a danger to the country,

No, he’s a danger to the liberal socialist progressive woke establishment, I’ll definitely give you that, and without a doubt, especially now more so that he’s getting more and Hispanics, that’s definitely not good for the left.

for the minorities, for the freedom and for the democracy

According to the election results.

There was no evidence of mass fraud. Trump has claimed mass fraud in a few elections without evidence. It’s what he does. Not very bright people accept his claims without evidence. It’s what they do.

He was comprehensively thrashed by a declining Biden in 2020.

Worth remembering.

Lol it's two years out, and Trump is leading in some polls by roughly 3 percentage points, with 10% of voters claiming to vote for someone else, and 4% undecided. I'd bet money that neither of those two categories will break towards Trump.

So makes about as much sense as the Trump and Republican rhetoric against wokeness, CRT, cultural Marxism or whatever empty culture war grift that comprises the bulk of what they campaign with to their electorate.

Was Obama the exception that proves the rule?

I’m sure the Republicans and the Democrats wish they had someone with that kind of skill set.

Trump and Biden struggle with the basics of putting a coherent sentence together.

Ron DeSantis has a 12-point lead over Donald Trump

Nope.

https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/campaigns/trump-boasts-20-point-lead-desantis-hints-new-energy-campaign

Trump currently has an unfavorability rating of 55%, and a favourability rate of 39.6%.

He’s always had that, nothing new, but then again it depends on who was polled.

In one poll Trump was favoured slightly over Biden but that's not such a great achievement.

Considering how destructive his policies have been and still are, it’s a phenomenal achievement.

His company was just convicted of tax fraud, setting the stage from criminal indictments. He and one of his attorneys were just sanctioned by a judge for abusing the legal system with ridiculous lawsuits to the tune of about a million bucks split between them. And don't forget the cases he lost over his so-called non profit charity where all the funds went to him, and having Trump U shut down for defrauding the students. It is catching up to him now. Judges are no longer tolerating his delaying tactics.

so please list just a few of the many “criminal” cases against Donald J. Trump personally?!

-9 ( +1 / -10 )

Trump's campaign, in its early stages, has already drawn controversy, most particularly when he had dinner with Holocaust-denying white nationalist Nick Fuentes and the rapper formerly known as Kanye West, who had made a series of antisemitic comments. Trump also was widely mocked for selling a series of digital trading cards that pictured him as a superhero, a cowboy and an astronaut, among others.

I guess the Trump supporters think this is nothing to do with Trump and they are probably right because he's no longer the poster boy and too many republicans oppose him. He has to win the nomination first.

As usual the left take things out of context. But if clarity, she’s referring to the practices of democracies selling out to China and jumping on the EV bandwagon and having the world rely on Communist China for a large portion for minerals mined in Africa through slave like condition labor work.

She’s absolutely right.

Yeah, and watch the Dems fail on that as well. 7 years, don’t kid yourself. The obsessive hate the left has for this guy, they worked 24/7 to do whatever they could to take this guy out and absolutely nothing happened. If they had something on him that could take him out permanently, they would have used it, they know that. This is all more leftist political kabuki for the haters to give them something emotional to hope and lean on. What’s gets me about the left is, they just double down even in the face of blistering embarrassing defeat and still utter, well next time. Look, if the left wants to waste more time going after this guy, go ahead. I think it’s funny tbh.

Sure, and for the record, you are one of the more level-headed posters here so here is one:

Pompeo's position on the Chinese influence on US universities--he would seek to put a stop to their influencing these institutions such as their funding and research initiatives which are meant to benefit China; and China's efforts to turn Chinese students at these institutions into spies for the CCP.

The benefits to the US public should be evident.

This list is all either nonspecific polemic (e.g. "failed liberal policies", "corrosive to our military", "vilifying male masculinity") or simply untrue (e.g. "defunding our police").

Trumpism is a hollow movement without any clear vision beyond a deification of Trump and a desire to own the libs. Most of the conservative principles have been ejected from the GOP.

Nope, US taxpayers are paying for the entire thing. So as one, I have a reason to speak.

And apart from the oft-repeated fact that this is a public site open to all, Trump’s basic stupidity and vileness affects the larger world.

As such, non-Americans also have the right to speak.

Oh, yes. 75% of the nation thinks so, as well as their pocketbooks.

Geopolitical or domestic ?

Wokeness is threatening whose male masculinity?

It is all Trump has.

im fine with Trump/Desantis/Pompeo/Cruz/Scott as President at this moment.

Name one policy accomplishment or proposal of any of these individuals that would benefit the American public.

On more positive Pompeo stance--his opposition to Biden's open border policy.

Pompeo considers this a national security problem--especially allowing a flood of refugees from hotbeds of terrorism such as Syria and Yemen.

I would feel safer as an American if the number of refugees from those types of countries is kept at zero.

Opinions are welcomed, but the constant trolling over elementary issues is just silly.

At the same time, only Americans have the experience and insight to really understand how these issues affect Americans.

For example, a disgruntled Brit chirping "Trump denied the election". Sad.

Agree or disagree--you did ask for someone to name a beneficial policy, and he did. As an American, I agree that is a good example. Anytime US society can get maximum achievement from its children, this is a big plus for our society.

The only person who can run in the Trump party is Trump. Maybe MTG or Stewart Rhodes for VP. Desentis cannot run for the Trump party because Trump won't allow it. Trump hates Desantis

his opposition to Biden's open border policy.

Don't forget that Reagan inked millions of green cards for illegals during his 2nd term. Why point the fingers at Democrats all the time? Trump's wall is now a hunk of garbage and less legal land for the US due to the influence of the Rio Grande especially.

Will Trump bring back TrumpCare if he wins? What is the Republican plan for healthcare?

MAGA stands for Make Attorneys Get Attorneys:

Trump, lawyers sanctioned nearly $1 million for 'political' lawsuit vs Clinton

(news source)

Republicans, why don't you all nominate someone who is not a psychopath and so obsessed with fetuses like Trump? And the Trump wall is stupid and a complete failure. You are losing (again). In the latest election where were so many Republican TV CMs that pitched "save the babies" that you lost focus on what's so important like expanding government healthcare (which works pretty well in Japan, including Trump people who are Japan residents).

Reagan isn't president now.

And he wasn't dishing out green cards to refugees from hotbeds of terrorism.

He spent money like crazy while talking about the greatest economy in history.

His supporters were able to suspend deep-held beliefs in fiscal conservatism very effectively. Naturally, beliefs later came roaring back.

It was quite a sight.

I don’t think anyone needs to pinpoint the dates of this suspension.

Well, the abortion issue did kill many of them. Most Americans do want to some limit to abortion in the case of rape, incest or if the life of the mother is in jeopardy, but some of these candidates wanted zero exceptions whatsoever, that scared a lot of women, that was on those candidates not Trump.

The president’s party has historically lost seats in Congress during the midterms, but Democrats were able to grow their majority in the Senate and only narrowly lost in the House."

But they lost the House. They lost the ability and power to spend and write blank checks, and gained the power to stop Biden’s radical agenda, thank god!

Sounds like more sales for ladders, ropes, and shovels:

If they call at this The Trump Wall, it has to be beautiful. And you put that plank up and you dig your footings. And you put that plank up -- there's no ladder going over that. If they ever go up there, they're in trouble, because here's no way to get down. Maybe a rope.

(Trump admitting his wall is garbage since they just need a rope)

of course the US needs a wall.

And who is going to pay for that?

What's the argument to not having a wall will keep illegals out?

Exactly how should this giant wall be constructed? Like the Berlin wall? What are the specifics? What if the Mexicans use ladders and shovels....also Ropes [Maybe a rope (Trump)]. They even tried this before Trump...

In 2006, Democrats were saying 'build that fence!'— As a senator, Barack Obama once offered measured praise for the border control legislation

Trump did nothing the Dems didn't try before and they both failed. But ladders, ropes, and shovels never fail and very cheap at Home Depot.

I'm wondering what woman in their right mind (who is younger at least) would vote Republican since they want to control their bodies. The Republicans these days see them elves as direct descendants of Jesus. Yes, the Dems have a few weird points (that have nothing to do with me personally) but it seems the Republicans are on a self destruct mission and they try to push clowns like Hershel Walker. Republicans? Why be so obsessed over the woman's body? You are losing votes over this. The dems just don't have open borders? What is the political point of that anyway even if they did?

Look at the result. There was no "Red Wave". The Republicans went backwards over this. This broke trends with history with all the "save the babies" ads the Trump party released on TV. Younger voters (who are hated by Trump people) spoke and old Trump geriatrics who watch FOX 24/7 in their lazyboys need to disappear into the sunset.

I do, now more than ever.

In Japan? What's wrong with the school system in Japan?
