    You know I have asked folks that I know voted for Trump on why. Because I just did not understand it. I found three responses they could not Stand Hillary was the biggest, next was they hated Washington and thought he would bring change, third that he was the lesser of two evils. Me I did not vote for him because he was not qualified, vulgar, and untrustworthy. But I did not vote for Hillary because she was Untrustworthy, corrupt, and interventionist.

    People who love the North Korean regime, evidently.

    Well, that is assuming that Trump ever makes it to reelection. Justice may finally end his reign of terror at any moment..

    They forgot to ask the Blue Dog Demos who gave Trump the win. As turning away from Hillary wasn't their only answer.

    Hows that feel to know they will give him the Win again? [​IMG]

    Going by what your link says, it's because no one liked the Clintons and the Democrats have generally failed miserably at addressing the economic issues in those states. Hillary was way out of touch, and that came on top of a potent anti-Clinton propaganda campaign by hostile foreign agents..

    Oh yeah the same Foreign agents that held protest rallies against Trump. Of course the Demos doubling down on their same old policies and being out of touch with their own kind. While telling all they will raise taxes. Will give them a different result, huh. :laughing:

    Their efforts were focused on harming Hillary, not Trump. Whether that was supporting Trump or even Bernie Sanders, or even discouraging people from even voting, their efforts were anti-Hillary, not anti-Trump. You would have to look very hard to find anything otherwise.

    And the numbers continue to hold steady for the Dems. Since there will be no Hillary Surprise this November, life is going to be sweet for the good Americans who are nonTrumpers.

    I'm astounded that so many people are still agonizing over this! If you couldn't figure it out during the election, you sure are not going to figure it out now.

    I thought he won because of Russian interference, not anything to do with the voters.

    So the real reason he won is because we all watched FB ads.

    So having put Lybia and Syria into chaos enabling black people and 13 yo yezidis girls (to whom family was genocided) being sold in slavery. Trump is the american president who worked the hardest for peace. He is a good change after the crimson bush and obama years.

    It's impressive to see the number of agressive warmonger on this forum. You should maybe airdroped on a war zone.

    You haven't been paying much attention to his actions in Syria, it seems. It's OK. The media have been pretty quiet about that, too.

    https://www.amnesty.org/en/documents/mde24/8367/2018/en/

    Syria: “War of annihilation”: Devastating toll on civilians, Raqqa – Syria
    5 June 2018, Index number: MDE 24/8367/2018

    The four-month military operation carried out by the US-led Coalition to oust the Islamic State from Raqqa (Syria), killed hundreds of civilians, injured many more and destroyed much of the city. This report documents the experiences of four families whose cases are emblematic of wider patterns. Eight months on, the Coalition remains in denial about the human tragedy resulting from its military campaign. Amnesty International is urging Coalition members to promptly and impartially investigate allegations of international law violations and civilian casualties, and to provide reparation to the victims and adequate assistance for the desperately needed demining and reconstruction work.

    He should. He should make sure to salute Assad's generals, too.

    Maybe they felt that after their party literally worked against one of their own candidates and chose the winner before they even got to vote that the corruption was just to much to stomach. Heck Bernie in my opinion would have won the election. People at least liked him.

    What do you prefer ? Nuclear war ? 13 YO yezidi girls sold in the marketplace of rakka ? USA, and no country are the policemen of the world. What's the matter if north Korea or Syria is a dictatorship ? As long they don't threaten other countries.

    North and South korea signed up a peace treaty, it's very good by the way south korean played their role too.

    How do you want he act ? Play Bush/Obama style ? We will provide you democracy with bombs ?
