    Scumbag trump. I have family in Puerto Rico that had to move back to New York for almost a year until their home was repaired and electricity was restored. Over 4000 people died do to that storm. Try going without electricity for just one week in 100 degree weather and see how that affects YOUR life. I can’t stand trump for downplaying that storm

    For a guy that stares into the sun and thinks forests should be raked I don’t think he should be weighing in on anything to do with life on our earth. In fact we should just shoot him into outer space to keep him from potentially blowing up the world

    Peel back the layers of BS and try to look at a thing at it's core. Is it as a whole...good...or evil? Does it best serve the interests of everyone or does it serve the interest of itself or it's base? As the layers become more the base itself...good or evil? Wipe away all the mist and fog and you'll know the answer to the questions that plague you most. Is this person working for the mantle of good or evil? I think we already know the truth. Trump is evil. At the heart of his base...he serves that evil and at some point he and the people he serves must be held accountable. VOTE!!!!!!

    Trump is a sad excuse for a leader but what is wrong with his staff? Why they do not try to set boundaries or make him read at least coherent statement. He is as random as the homeless guy hallucinating at the bus stop. Is he gonna claim that his staff are conspiracy of democrats to make him look like a fool on twitter and on TV?

    Look up "El Frente Amplio" (The Puerto Rican Trucker's Union) and their leader Victor Rodriguez, and you'll see the REAL reason why the aid isn't getting there.
    Rodriguez ordered the Union Truckers to stand down and use Hurricane Maria as leverage against Puerto Rican Senate Bill 525, passed into law recently. That law allows for UBER and other NON-Union drivers to assist in the relief effort W\O harassment from the Trucker's Union. That's the REAL issue. A bunch of thugs who put their contracts above the welfare of their fellow countrymen.
    Criminality truly exists in other areas outside the U.S. it's just easier to point the finger at the U.S. because no one wants to deal with the idiots in their own backyard..

    Aside from which, neither you, nor I know whether he does indeed “own” all or any of these properties or businesses other than in name, or whether they are mortgaged beyond their value, as has been in the past. As he refused to release his tax returned, whether it is because he has nefarious debts, or has a negative debt ratio, his non disclosure can only be viewed as highly suspicious.

    Many Australians, including myself, follow US politics as it (TRUMP) was initially just satirical comic relief and none of us expected the GOP to win and control the house and senate. As the weeks, months clicked over we became more concerned by his lack of political knowledge and how incredibly dumb & obnoxious he is. His 'policies' and narcissism are now seriously threatening the stability on the global stage and his inability to converse with his peers is genuinely frightening. The whole world is watching this crazed carnival barker vomit out incoherent racist rants, vulgar lies, unhinged threats. He's the antithesis of MAGA & I dream of the day he, his family & cronies are in orange jumpsuits!

    The U.S. government is definitely not known for small people or even intelligent students. In fact, it is so blatant about it. No cheap Knight Templar is going to reach the educated or intelligent community. They should try used cars, the tie is better. Security "guards" are generally big and tall as are sports figures as it is the nature of their work. CSL. America is not lately known for its intelligent community. In fact, I think their idea of it comes from "Hints From Heloise" and not Newton's "Principia." This is not Gauss and it is a gross of it. Does this have something to do with our dirty Templar past? They are not known for traditional phi and they are known for a type of dream architecture of idiots. Also, the religious chemistry is getting old. Yes, the realm of the invention traditionally comes from the lower-class idiot types for Franklin fans. And, Disney also fits this part as Grimm is culled from the German peasantry of the spoken word. Welcome to the fleeing plague peasantry and British revolutionaries...

He himself supported it way back when he was running for POTUS. “We can have universal health care by the end of the next president’s first term, by the end of my first term,” Obama said, bringing 600 union workers to their feet during a question-and-answer session with members of AFL-CIO affiliated unions." - 2007.

    Sigh... you can get an anchor who seem unbiased and presents relevant news stories if you watch satire.
    Take a minute and absorb that.

    For those who couldn’t quite get it, satire essentially comes off it’s over exaggerated sarcasm. It’s when you do something that is so outlandish it’s obvious that it’s a joke. Usually.
    Our media is so backwards that the idea of an unbiased anchor and real news stories are completely outlandish.
