but because they could easily result in his supporters kicking off.

Do you think Biden will set aside stimulus to get all our monuments restored?

How about all the businesses that were destroyed?

Precedents vs hypothetical...no "kick offs" post Trump have happened yet.

Your side has being doing all the damage

People dancing on the streets were not organized by Biden.

Correct, it was a reaction, just like the riots were, that caused and estimated 1 - 2 billion dollars in property damage, the worst in US history.

You forgot to add in that collateral. A Trump rally vs that level of destruction.

I must of been sitting in a different reality class, so I will pass on your lecture..

The bar is set so low after Trump that Biden can do anything and it will be one of the greatest presidencies in US history.

You got it twisted. Joe was never handed a pandemic like COVID, so we really dont know how he would of dealt. Trump already bore the brunt of the initial assualt, both by the pandemic, MSM and the economy. Now that Joe is MSM darling he can do no wrong.

@NOMINATION

Its just noise, they been at it for 4 years now, cherry picking what to report, while ignoring whats important. They did they same thing during the rampage.

One of Trumps failures was to counter the medias bias with successes. There were many, like energy independence, all time stock market rallies and record unemployment. They were never interested, but voters in TX and Florida were. I didnt bother I guess because of his ego, and if he did, the media bias would have disqualified them anyway.

Trump was more of a Populist than a republican, decades it was biz as usual for them until Trump showed real leadership and their past incompetence so they had no choice but to follow him

There are several issues with "renewable energy"

Most 1st world developed countries have "on demand" capability. When the sun is down and wind stops blowing, you have to rely on a second infrastructure of Hydro or Nuclear if you want constant power. Solar and wind are weak energy sources, so you end up using massive areas of land just to make a dent. Solar panels have a finite lifespan and must be replaced, so the cadium in the PV cells must be disposed of. Under Obama, billions were invested in renewable projects, with little to show for it.

It makes everybody feel good, but Im still in reality and agreed, leave Trumps energy independence success alone.

Texas voted when they came for their oil and gas jobs.

@expat,

If you think about it, Biden actually inherited the perfect situation. All this about Biden must help us recover from Trump damage....

Due to COVID, they were able to exploit an ambiguous voting situation, where nobody still knows the actual count due to mail in ballots in Dem controlled cities.

Nobody knows how a Biden would of handled the tsunami of ambiguous and uncertainty back in Jan when COVID appeared. China was not transparent in their reporting. Agreed, Trump blundered, but initial reporting by "experts" said it was nothing more than the flu.

Trump endured the initial blunt of the trauma, later throwing everything they could at, while still making stupid statements, but their still isnt a vaccine.

Please no Hillary Clinton, not for any position

I will agree with you on that, but i dont understand the juxtaposition of Trump hate with a dismissal of Hillary; Hillary is the Dem party, arrogance and a disconnect with working class people.

I dont understand why Hillary doesnt deserve a cabinet spot, seems she is more than qualified.

@Sven Asai,

You make good points. I havent got into the weeds about the alleged voter fraud, frankly because Im still trying to catch up with Nancy tearing up the state of the Union antics, impeachment, COVID, riots, tearing down statues...I mean we been through allot, it just keeps coming up.,,,lol

I just watched Trumps lawyer give a speech about the Penn. case and the # of witnesses was allot. Do they have anything? I dont want to get into the weeds about it, but, yeah something doesnt add up

If history is any guide, Trump is in for another strong year in 2020.

Stocks are up in year four more than 66% of the time and the S&P 500 returns an average of 5.7%, according to Bespoke.

Meaning pre COVID...Trumps economy was predicted to surpass 2019 record #s

trump had zero ideas in his 4 years.

His fans had no issues with that.

Now they want Biden/Harris to solve all of trump created problems even before they are sworn in.

Ironic, hilarious ?????

It all pivots on the economy. Get us back to 2017 #s and Im sold.

Nothing indicates that...lots of "back in the ditch" plans that we were in pre Trump, for decades.

 imagine if the Republicans selected a better candidate instead?

They will. Im convinced it will be Pence. After watching him destroy the lost kamela, I gained the upmost respect for this highly intelligent and tactful man. He should of been the front man all along with Trump as chief of staff.

Japanese, unlike my fellow countrymen, have long memories and time is a different commodity for them. Same with Chinese. I think its had an affect on me as well, I like that about their culture.

They remember the Obama/Hillary Pivot to Asia non sense

In Bidens plan, same thing. Go read it.

Posted in: Biden calls for healing in appeal to Trump voters See in context

Another thing amusing about this one-term president is that ALL THE JAPANESE pundits on JTV called it for trump on Wednesday and Thursday.

Its because they liked his strong position with China and they were green lighted to rebuild their defense. they also witnessed the several months or leftist rampage and destruction; that doesnt jive with their culture at all.

I forgot to add another benchmark...China

that she is their president, too, and that the Democratic party will look after their interests with Bernie's "socialist" agenda.

No what she is going to have to do is bring back all the jobs lost due to COVID and the huge oil and gas industry economy that Trump created. Since the later is the bane of their existence. I see lots of disruption. During the Dem clown show debates, lots of feel good talk about green jobs, when those of us rooted in reality know such a thing doesnt exist, so once things go left, I honestly dont know where the jobs will come from.

Ideas?

His plan doesn’t matter if he can’t get the Senate to vote for it, no?

Absolutely. Thats my point, in my reply to Tokyo Eng. There will be no "compassion" or working together. People have short memories. How long did the Ukraine scandal drag on for? Nancy assured us Trump would be gone. Thats what Schiff and Pelosi wanted. This is what the senate are dealing with. These people have no compassion, why should they?There will be a honeymoon, then nothing will get done. Then you have tweets from celebrities and other team members saying "burn it all down" "abolish the police" Now we are supposed to work with these people? When they had the opportunity to do so, what did they do?

It will be a win for Biden’s America if the tax cuts remain as they are. Lower taxes benefit the entire economy.

Have you read Bidens plan? Pay attention to the tax increases. Read 50 cents tweet about it also

Senator Joe Biden supported the Taiwan Relations Act back in 1979 under which US arms sales to Taiwan are authorized to this date.

Do you think relations with South Korea will improve?

This will require compromise from the Republicans and an end to identity politics. I certainly hope he can do what he stated.

Im trying to understand the "damage" and enduring 4 years of Trump. It was one of the best 4 years I have seen in a long time. The rampage and Trump hate, Im glad thats finally over 24/7 harrassment but Im trying to understand what you were damaged by. COVID and unemployment is still here so...what makes you happy? I know Trump had a personality disorder thing with needing to be accepted and MSM exploited that but never made me upset. I just see this huge shift from violence and hate to rejoice and "good times are coming" whats in the bag? Please dont take it personally; its just a step away and look at it kind of thing. Continue with your festivities.

this is such a pivotal moment, a point in time that may well just save the planet’s ecosystem from catastrophe. Joe Biden has a vision to transition from a carbon economy, to rejoin the international community, and address the existential threat to life as it is known on Earth, where the Amazon Rainforest is burning, where there is no ice forming in the Artic, 

yes and that will provide all the jobs that are desperately needed now

But enjoy yourself, good to see you in a festive mood, its been a long time....lol

@Bob,

I read the Corona Biden response 7 step "plan"

Whats in it thats not already being done?

During the initial stages of COVID ( a novel virus nobody had encountered before, thus had no idea how to treat it) Trump also mobilized testing.

Produce more PPE...wow!innovative. Whatever happened to all those mask Trump had produced? and ventilators?? What happened to them?

Top down guidance...I think we had that back in Jan from the CDC and Faucci, and what did they say?

Ways to distribute a vaccine...but Trump was already on that

Protect older adults...ok..maybe an addition, but I think thats already being done. well I think NY had an issue about that

Improve national response and relationship with the WHO...OOOOk...lol

and of course...mandate them mask

Amazing!

This sounds like some johnny come lately ride the coat tails of somebody elses plan to me. Remember Trumps reaction to the Diamond Princess? How about the USN Mercy? How about the first stimulus? and the defense act to produce the ventilators? BTW what ever happened to the ventilators? Also, were the peaceful riots a super spreader event?

Except for the WHO part...all of it, already being done. So whats the plan again?

They both asked the same questions: What happened? Why the lost seats in the House and why did minorities increasingly support Trump.

But thats a no brainer....they voted those Dems out because they are scared of them. Left wing socialist that did nothing while the country burned.

Both want the Democratic Party to build back the support of working men and women and both criticized racial division and trying to radically pull the country to far and asked some very serious questions about where we are going. Spanberger was harsh and actually swore on a couple of occasions

No they dont..lol. They said the same thing when Hilary lost..."we havent connected with the working people" Trump wasnt about the talk, he was about the jobs, look at the oil and gas industry across the gulf states, look at the tax cuts. Thats all about to disappear dude. All this "Biden wants to work with the Senate but..." They want to keep that, he wants to take it away. I knew people from the Gulf, the economy was on fire and they gave Trump 100% credit. Whats this guy going to do? he some new tax cuts? Tell me whats he going to do?

Biden will try, but it may not happen with Trump's lying rhetoric continuing on, his supporters follow his wrong actions, angry as ever, which may go on well after he is gone from the WH.

The problem is with your logic. Those problems will always be there. The pressing issue today is COVID and jobs

There is nothing Trump could of done about COVID. Theres probably nothing Biden can do about it either except add to what Trump was doing

When people dont work, they cant pay for child care, they cant eat right, they cant climb Maslows heirarchy.

Its not about your feelings or curing racism, those things subside when everybody has opportunity and work, thus the large latino and hispanic vote. There is tons of racism in Japan but if your working in a job you like, you can deal.

You cant blame Trumps lying rhetoric when he is out of office either its going to be on Biden to get the economy rolling.

Dude posting about "damage"

Better cut him a check, poor thang

You think about it, these people had more freedom under Trump than they will ever have again. They said despicable things about his family about him 24/7, then

they went out and burned, looted, maimed and killed. Do you think they could of done that under GWB2 Obama or this guy? I want that Gucci bag in the window! break it, take it, its yours, you deserve it...you been damaged!

You try that during this guys watch. Defund the police? They be there in a heart beat

You aint going to flip and burn up no patrol car under this guys regime

Trump's gone. He's finished. Your landslide has gone. The popular vote in favor of Biden is 4m, and the acutual vote in swing states is in Biden's favor. Sleepy Joe won. Get over it.

It is what it is, I feel bad for Trump that he put in the work and lost to such a pathetic bunch, but Trump is not gone. There are lots of people, like me, who remember and will benchmark. no rioting, burning or tantrums and by 2022, if those benchmarks are not met, time to vote in more red. 2024 arrives and its Pence all day everyday. If Biden proves to be capable of exceeding those benchmarks, I will change my vote.
