"They want to give more to illegal aliens than they do to American citizens," he said.

Another lie. The lies continue to add up. But the biggest liar in US presidential history has attracted so many like-minded followers, expect this one to be parroted.

"At stake in this fight is the survival of American democracy itself,"

Says the man leading the charge to undermine the remaining bits of the democratic republic, with assistance from despotic regimes around the globe. But his like-minded followers will once again just parrot what he's said, especially those whose reading sources are global alt right outlets like RT, Breitbart, infowars, etc., and whose radios are turned to one of the many alt right shock jocks. Though there are millions of Trump backers, fortunately they remain a minority.

The company's billionaire controlling shareholder, Bernard Arnault, joined Trump for the event at the 100,000-square-foot(9,290-square-meter) plant.

Another global tycoon supporting Trump. 

"Louis Vuitton, a name I know well - cost me a lot of money over the years," said Trump.

Trump's condescending to his audience, saying he can afford to buy his wives and ‘others’ high-end designer goods, can pay big money so they can wear things that are little more than over-priced advertisements for the maker. While many in the crowd are seeing their cost of living increase and their buying power decrease. Unless, because it's Texas, Trump's people were able to pack the audience with rich folk from big energy and big ranch and farm, i.e. those who've benefitted most from his tax cuts for the rich and whose corporations are getting big federal subsidies.

He has the best words but put together, it doesn’t much sense.

President Word Salad.

Did anyone out there expect anything else from Donnie?

It's getting worse day by day! He is playing with the fear of people.

And his lies continue to add up.

According to a news page there are 22 lies (or alternative facts) every day.

Multiply this with his 1.000 days in office .....

Michael Moore said the exact same thing, due to the lack of vision the Democrats have for the future.

Nancy Pelosi is the worst of the left as Donald Trump is the worst of the right. They belong together.

"Without spilling a drop of American blood, not one drop of American blood,

Pelosi is not left. She's Center-right. But I agree with posters who criticise her lack of foresight.

But that's what happens when you have two parties that are similar, in keeping the elite in power.

I hope one day to see Democratic party with the likes of AOC at the helm, offering a real alternative.

Trump is angry because for the first time in his sorry life, he can't game the legal system.

Sorry spectacle US politics has become.  Each side as bad as the other.

Ditzy Donald proving once again there is nothing between his ears but hot air. Stale hot air to be precise.

The fact he has supporters proves it is a condition suffered by quite a few in the USA. The W.H.O must send investigators to find out why America has so many "airheads" before it spreads further. A clearly serious contagion though not yet airborne, could be the precursor of the dreaded ZOMBIE outbreak we have all been fearing. Brainlessness is not to be laughed at. We must give our sympathies to the friends and family of those afflicted with Ditzy Donalds zombie like "airhead disease".

Emergency Alert! Ditzy Donald attacks all who do not agree with his "airhead" proposals and anyone not fawning over his imagined greatness. He see's what is not there, a possible clue to this menacing disease. I am the most stable genius in the world! Nobody is better than me! Baseless falsehoods like the aforementioned statements are proof of his lack of brains, no doubt eaten away by this zombie affliction.

Syrian pull out = bad

TPP pull out = bad

Iran deal pull out = bad

Global climate pact pull out = bad

Personal friendships with Putin, Xi and Kim = Despicable

All indicators of "airhead disease". Bring in the white coats and prepare the padded cell.

if thats the case then America can live with it, plus side is Trump wont be able to hide behind the Presidency anymore that avalanche of litigation will be building in the meantime. NY just passed a law that states a presidential pardon cannot protect criminals from prosecution including past transgressions.

Guiliani must be sweating about now. LOL

Say what you want, but Trump can work a crowd

Most demagogues and tyrants can. They single out their critics, the press and foreigners, whipping their audience into a frenzy.

I wonder when the precise moment in recent history was, the equivalent of the Beer Hall Putsch, when the far right ideologies took hold and people got behind it. I suppose the nearest and most obvious moment was the nazis marching with their despicable chants and their "fine people" endorsement. But it was there before. The birther theories, the tea party and of course, Jim Crow and centuries of bigotry.

It's not surprising, with all that history, that such a man like Trump could become PotUS. I wonder will it take some sort of a D-Day style landing to liberate the US, if he holds onto power and the Democrats prove to be ineffectual?

In New York, Trump kept two account books. An inflated on e for investors. A deflated one for the tax guys.

Trump is probably more worried about Trump Towers in Istanbul than he is about U.S. foreign policy between the Turks and the Kurds.

Donny’s upset Pelosi retweeted the photo he gave her showing her completely and pointedly owning him in his own backyard! That was one stupid move by Donny!! :)

Oh, the irony. It’ll go down in history as the photo symbolizing her crushing the lies and restoring some truth to America, and will be as famous as the flag at Iwo Jima. Donny unwittingly thought he was being clever by posting it and all it shows is Pelosi looking assured and intelligently controlling the Donny, while Trump looks angry and obtuse. What a dummy!!! :D

"Crazy Nancy. That crazy Nancy, she is crazy," Trump said of Pelosi.

Well at least he makes it understand for his supporters, although I think some of them still won't get his point. Should have just kept using the word "crazy" all throughout the speech!

Trump only has to say something 3 times and his base are brainwashed.

The man is becoming dangerous. Some of us used to call him a clown, but if Trump is a clown he's a very dangerous one and we should be afraid of what he might do or say. There's a word for a fear of clowns, coulrophobia. Except in Donnie's case, the fear is not irrational.
