Getting Serious: Trump Delivers Major Foreign Policy Speech

For some reason, Donald Trump’s critics are desperate to see him “act presidential,” which seems to mean that he should read from a teleprompter more often. And while Trump has reportedly shaken off Paul Manafort’s attempts to make him more presentable, he delivered a sweeping foreign policy speech on Wednesday that should satisfy those voters concerned about his knowledge of world affairs. In his first significant pre-written speech since AIPAC, Trump offered some specifics on his “American First” doctrine.

“On trade, on immigration, on foreign policy, the jobs, incomes and security of the American worker will always be my first priority,” he said. “Both our friends and our enemies put their countries above ours, and we – while being fair to them – must start doing the same.”

In a 40-minute address, Trump vowed to eliminate ISIS, force China to bring North Korea under control, and reevaluate America’s international agreements in both trade and global security.

“Our allies are not paying their fair share,” he said. “They look at the United States as weak and forgiving and feel no obligation to honor their agreements with us.”

In what is bound to be the most-quoted portion of the speech, Trump said, “We will no longer surrender this country or its people to the false song of globalism. I am skeptical of international unions that tie us up and bring America down. And under my administration, we will never enter America into any agreement that reduces our ability to control our own affairs.”

The speech was more than just an attempt to “look presidential.” In taking firm positions that run sideways to established Republican orthodoxy, Trump is proving that he is not about to shut up and smoothly assimilate into the GOP establishment. If there was anyone out there who still thought Trump was only concerned with realizing his own personal ambitions, this speech should put an end to the chatter. He has chosen the road less traveled. That’s leadership.

Of course, one can respect Trump for his willingness to challenge conventional wisdom without agreeing with his foreign policy prescriptions. For all the talk of America playing world police, it is through those international security agreements that we have been able to become the most powerful country on the planet. Defending our allies takes a lot of money, but it also keeps them subservient. President Obama has endangered world stability by making deals with rogue Islamists, but a policy of isolationism could easily be worse.

That’s the downside. The upside is that Trump isn’t saying we’re going to withdraw from the world stage. He’s saying that it’s time to look at some of these outdated agreements and institutions with fresh eyes. He’s a negotiator. That’s what he does best. And if he can go in and rewrite international policy so that it benefits the U.S., no one will complain. And any president who comes into office with a mindset of “America first” will be leagues better than what we’ve been dealing with for the last eight years.

    A president who doesn’t HATE OUR country would be a refreshing change from the traitor/usurper in OUR WHITE HOUSE!!!

    • Oh come on. That is so stale. Here is how this ‘traitor/usurper’ destroyed the US:
      1. Unemployment: down from 10% to 5% (below what Romney promised in 2012)
      2. Industry: US car makers, eg General Motors, went from bankruptcy to massive profits, providing lots of good US jobs
      3. The stock market goes from 7000 to 18000. Look at your 401K
      4. Let’s not mention 18 million people with health care who did not have it
      Eight more years of ‘hating’ the country with this effect would be pretty good.

      • HEY RECTUM!
        unemployment s down only because millions have given up finding jobs because of the traitor in chief
        who owns the us car makers fool! CHINA OWNS A LARGE PORTION Of GEN. MOTORS. thank you mr traitor in chief!
        and the healthcare is bankrupting America and taxing us to death and supplying the poorest of minimal healthcare that covers nothing and will self destruct in the near future. THANKS TO THE TRAITOR IN CHIEF.
        GET YOUR DUMBASS HEAD OUT OF YOUR RECTUM FOOL!!!

        • wow, you are not too bright are you old man?

          GM paid back it’s money, the US government hasn’t had any shares for years, low info voter

          unemployment is calculated THE SAME now as in GW years, so WHY the double standard?
          real facts not work for you?

        • “CHINA OWNS A LARGE PORTION Of GEN. MOTORS. thank you mr traitor in chief!”
          so you don’t seem to know.

          you know shares are PUBLICLY TRADED, right silly human?

          YOU seem unaware that GM sells MORE CARS in China than the US.

          you live in a cave?

          or just a brainwashed fool?

      • Keep drinking that koolaid peterrrrrrrrr

      • Each and every one of your points are nothing but SPIN and BS. They do not tell the full story, for example the unemployment numbers you quote look rosy until you look at the labor participation rate which sucks under this administration. GM was saved by a lie and then by another lie and stealing from the investors to give to the unions. The stock market numbers are great until you ajust them for the devaluation of the dollar created by the constant printing of worthless money to prop up the out of control spending and giving money to people who supported this president. Obamcare is a total mess with most of the exchanges closed and the fact that it didn’t really provide healthcare to anywhere near the number published. They moved people who had healthcare to Obamcare because the plans they had were destroyed by Obamacare or they were moved to Medicare. In short your argument are total leftist BS.

        • Eleanore Whitaker

          The unemployment numbers only look bad in your fukked up GOP states. Our Dem states are creating jobs..Check out the hundreds of thousands of jobs NY, NJ, DE, MD, CT and MA have created in just the last 6 months. Don’t you dipshits of the Confederacy ever leave your states?

          Oh and by the way? Your Big Oil is on its way out. NJ, AZ and CA are the top three solar energy states who are leading the pack with manufacturing panels and solar installations. Must really hate it that your asshat fukked up states can’t keep up with those fossil fuel relic industries’ right?

          • Eleanor you seem to be extremely angry. Take a breath. Three of the states you mentioned are run by Republican governors – MA, MD, NJ. Maryland, specifically, has done an about face since Governor Hogan was elected replacing the Democrat, tax and spend, idiot O’Malley. It is ridiculous to say that oil is going to be replaced by Solar energy. There is way too much cloud cover, especially on the East coast for that to work and the government and scientists are aware of that.

          • “and the government and scientists are aware of that.”
            so you believe government scientists?

            but not when they tell you about climate change.
            cons are such hypocrites.

          • I have read numerous papers on that particular subject researching the pros, cons and ins and outs of where to be living in order to take best advantage of Solar energy. I am an Independent, believe I gave Eleanore respectful, non-combatant comments and it seems that you are the one living under the “Three Billy Goats Gruff” bridge. We have had a changing climate since Earth was created. Probably another subject you would troll around.

          • ” We have had a changing climate since Earth was created.”

            THAT is what all the ignorant “independents” say.

            besides, if you QUACK like a conservative…..

          • Does the fact that you have to repeat what other people say before you can reply have anything to do with koolaid and weed?

          • well fool, let me explain.

            when someone posts a lengthy bit, one “cites” the part they are responding to.
            if you had an education you would know that.

          • Keep smoking, RC. Your name calling just gets better and better!

          • “Fool” is a character trait you possess.
            so not name calling.

          • I damn sure don’t believe you RC

          • no surprise.
            cons are not the smartest.

          • Have you seen the numbers for Texas? In any case, many of these stats are dependent on the individual economic policies of the governors in each state. But you are a leftist and only think in terms of massive authoritarian government.

          • Hold on there, bitch. You can like or dislike ovomit all you want to. That’s a right that our forefather wrote into our Constitution and Bill of Rights. You know, the same Constitution that contains the 2nd Amendment. It seems to me that all of you left wing, sotiacrats want to “pick out” those portions of our Constitution that you like and disregard or even eliminate the rest. If you are old enough (or have sense enough) think back to the Reagan years. Did we have other nations running over us, then? NO!!! Did he not repair all the damage wrought upon us by “peanut” Carter? YES!! Did he not, “Bring America Back!” as his slogan promised? YES!! The only candidate that even comes close to having the backbone or even the desire to “Make America Proud Again” is Mr. Trump. So, go ahead, stick your head in a hole like an ostrich or up hillary’s ass as a sotiacrat. But, in the meantime,, maybe you should learn to speak Arabic, ’cause that’s the direction in which America has gone ever since ovomit moved into the White House. And, if she gets the chance, hillary will do the same. But, then, maybe she couldn’t, due to other nations’ distrust in her after all the lies in which she’s been caught, but for which she has not received any sort of reprimand !! It seems that she is following in the footsteps of her hubby, “Slick Willy”. But, then, one thing she won’t be able to do is get a blowjob in the oval office.

          • ” Did we have other nations running over us, then?”

            we don’t now Fool of the right wing.

            love to hear some examples.
            I could use a laugh.

          • Repeat check!!!!!

          • America is already great.
            Fox News thinks you are not too well informed.

            “U.S. Economy ‘Lone Bright Spot,’ as Global Outlook Getting ‘Worse’”

            The World Bank is telling us… the U.S. economy is the only bright spot for global growth.

            http://www.foxbusiness.com/markets/2015/01/14/us-economy-lone-bright-spot-as-global-outlook-getting-worse/

            Sounds like the United States is lucky Obama chose this path or we
            would be suffering like Germany that is on the edge of recession.

          • Repeat check!!!!!!

          • And, of course, you would trust the world bank

          • everyone who is involved with finance and big business DOES,
            so it’s somewhat reliable.

            they base that fact on metrics that are standard world wide.

            like this
            http://knoema.com/nwnfkne/world-gdp-ranking-2015-data-and-charts

            the WORLD uses only a few different systems to measure and judge these things.
            fudging the numbers would destroy a countries credibility.

            compare the US GDP to any G-20 country.

          • ” But, in the meantime,, maybe you should learn to speak Arabic,”

            so, do you have a working brain?

            first off, low info con, the MAJORITY of Muslims don’t speak Arabic.

            secondly for them to dominate the population will only take a few hundred years, even if we start bringing them IN by the thousands.

            how do you cons get so fucked up?

          • Your name is actually ‘repeat check’isn’t it? It only takes one of those peace loving muslims, wearing a body bomb, to kill a few hundred of us infidels…..or maybe one with a dirty bomb to kill thousands. Did I miss your point or did you even have one?

          • in only takes one crazy American to do the same idiot of the right wing.

            Robby seems unaware that 14,000 INNOCENT Americans are murdered each year.

            kind of dwarfs the 19 killed by Muslims in 2015.

          • ‘repeat check’ you need a serious ‘reality check’!

          • Yeah !! Each and every one of us Southern Rednecks (Yep, I said Rednecks) are planning to turn our guns in voluntarily. Actually I have no intention of turning any of mine in while I’m still alive. I just figured you to be stupid enough to believe it.

          • I think Reality Check should go to live in the Middle East and learn that it ain’t America!!! Not even close. But, if he likes muslims so much, he might even like it there…until he is beheaded!!!

          • Amen Jarhead!! I’m not a Marine but I am former U.S. Army, served from ’68-70′ in Southeast asia. We need to rid this country of all these namby pamby assholes who are willing to sell My and your America down the tubes.From what I can see most of them haven’t served in the armed forces as you and I have. By the way thank you for your service.

          • Thank you for your comments and your service. As for me and my service, if I to be 100, I could never repay what all my Country has done for me.

        • Jim…..I think peterrrrrr and ellieeeee are live ins. They are definatly smoking the same crap. Middle class income has dropped every year the POS usurper has been in the gay house. Mfg jobs have ‘beat a path’ to friendlier grounds overseas to escape the back breaking taxes the imposter and chief has imposed on them. (Trump 2016) Notice all the states that ellieeeee mentioned? All of them voted overwhelming for Trump in the recent primaries. Sounds like they might be a little dissatisfied with all those new burger flipping jobs!

        • “They do not tell the full story, for example the unemployment numbers
          you quote look rosy until you look at the labor participation rate which
          sucks under this administration.”

          YOU LIE.

          why don’t yo give me THAT NUMBER and we will then show the con how low info you have become.

        • “GM was saved by a lie and then by another lie and stealing from the investors to give to the unions.”

          what TWO LIES were those?

          I love the way cons speak in vague terms.
          that way you don’t have to know that the fuck you speak of.

          you seem UNAWARE that the UNIONS took a PAY CUT in the restructure,

        • “The stock market numbers are great until you ajust them for the
          devaluation of the dollar created by the constant printing of worthless
          money”

          more proof you are an idiot of the right.

          so let see the con prove THAT.
          (like that will happen)

      • Janeen Thompson Rice

        Someone loves in a cave and doesn’t get the news there lol

        • Peterr gets the FACTS and you wingnuts struggle to find any way to attempt to discredit the FACTS. You fail!

          • Your head is definitely NOT on straight.

          • Eleanore Whitaker

            Yours never has been…But that double wide trailer sized ass must really be the reason for you sitting around all day without a job right?

          • Retired at age 73. But still working. Just taking a coffee break in my office when I read your ludicrous post. I would retire entirely, but afraid to do so until our jug-eared little dictator is evicted from office. He keeps taking my retirement money from me to give to non-producers.

          • Eleanore Whitaker

            Awww..Poor you…Join the crowd. Most Boomers ARE still working. Most of us got screwed over by greedy ass employers who paid less, got more profit and then flipped their employees the bird.

            If you are fool enough to believe that government and business are one and the same, you get what you asked for…no voting rights, No Constitution and a lawless Dodge City where men walk around armed to the teeth to buy a can of tuna.

          • Haven’t got a clue where you’re coming from. I worked hard and was well compensated for what I did. Based on your posts, you’re kind of a flake. Obviously a typical progressive/socialist nut case. You’re the one whining about life.

          • “Retired at age 73. But still working”

            you know, you can’t be “retired” and “still working”
            has conservatism rotted your brain?

          • Repeat check

          • Of course you can. I retired from my professional full time job and entered into private research and development activities. So I still am involved in productive work, unlike most progressive/socialists who can’t wait to become unproductive, if they ever contributed to society at all, and for whom “work” is generally an unfamiliar word.

          • so NOT retired.
            it’s not hard to figure out.

            I educate brainwashed Americans now that I am retired.

          • I am retired from the standpoint that I can choose to work or not to work on any given day and, if I choose to work, I can decide for how long. I work on productive projects whereas, you are mostly involved in dispensation of misinformation. But that’s okay. So far as I know, there’s no law against reinventing history. It may not be the most honest thing to be involved in, but no laws are being broken as long as it does not contribute to the overthrow of our government. Heck, politicians of both parties do it all the time. I don’t trust any of them, but I have a huge bias against the overthrow of capitalism and insertion of socialism. I have lived and worked in socialist countries both in Europe and South America. No thanks brother!

          • I deal only in facts.
            maybe you would like to debate and find out who is lying and who is not.

          • The “facts'”from the left side of the aisle are no more valid than those from the right side of the aisle. It’s the political season and you’re out here pimping for the progressive/socialist agenda the same as Limbaugh is for the other side. You facts are no more credible than the ones he spouts.

          • the are only ONE set of FACTS.

            the rest are LIES.

            you really are brainwashed.

          • “I have lived and worked in socialist countries both in Europe and South America”

            northern EU countries have a HIGHER Standard of living that we do, so….
            ALSO rated better place to do business

            ALSO rated as “better” to live.

            you seems confused.

          • Not at all. Our standard of living, versus that of the Europeans, began dropping during the Bush administration and then went into a nose dive as Obamas and his minions took over. Our once great country is now the laughing stock of the developed world.

          • you can see that our standards began to fall, right after ronny reagan began killing the middle class

          • Dial 911 – You’ve overdosed on the Kook-aid again. talking to you is kind of like trying to communicate with a drunk. And about as productive. I’m disengaging myself from you. I really, really do have many important things to do than spending time on you.

          • I hear that line from a lot of conservatives when faced with the Facts.

            I thought conservatives were all about the FACTS?
            that is just a Talking Point as well.

            http://www.foxbusiness.com/markets/2015/01/14/us-economy-lone-bright-spot-as-global-outlook-getting-worse/

          • ” but I have a huge bias against the overthrow of capitalism and insertion of socialism”

            what you have is a brainwashing.

            You were BORN in a regulated Capitalistic society, known as Democratic Socialism by people not brainwashed by the Oligarchy.

            Social Security is Democratic Socialism.

            Medicare is Democratic Socialism.
            Medicaid is Democratic Socialism
            Post Office are Democratic Socialism. (and in the Constitution)
            The US highway system is Democratic Socialism(and in the Constitution)
            our electric grid is Democratic Socialism
            Public Utilities are Democratic Socialism
            That road in front of your house is Democratic Socialism

            AND here we have our first example of Democratic Socialism done BY the Founding Fathers.

            “An Act for the relief of sick and disabled seamen
            was passed by the 5th Congress. It was signed by
            President John Adams on July 16, 1798. The Act authorized the deduction of twenty cents per month from the wages of seamen, for the sole purpose
            of funding medical care for sick and disabled
            seamen, as well as building additional hospitals for the treatment of seamen.”

            https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/An_Act_for_the_relief_of_sick_and_disabled_seamen

          • Not sure what your point is, but most of what you quoted comes out of the FDR administration and was principally done to provide public assistance employment. This was due to the depression, and the projects were heading for trouble due to lack of funding. Henry Morganthau finally had to go to FDR and advise him that the money supplies had dried up and the programs were going to have to come to a halt or be drastically reduced. The outbreak of World War 2 saved the day by putting the country on wartime production basis which created more tax paying citizens who both pumped money into the treasury and also took people off the other programs to either work in the factories or serve in the armed services. Once again, socialist programs were saved by capitalist employment. While there were results of some of the projects that we still enjoy today – the TVA and REA are good examples – many of the programs were expanded by politicians in order to buy votes and became huge and largely uncontrollable, social security is a prime example. Social security, by the way, was gutted by Lyndon Johnson in order to fund the Vietnam War. He simply replaced the funds payed in by working Americans with worthless I.O.U.’s. We were guaranteed that those funds were untouchable by FDR’s people when the fund was set up.

          • lets see you prove ONE WORD of that shit.

          • Are you at work, ellieeeeee?

          • Eleanore Whitaker

            No…As a matter of fact, I was up as I am EVERY day 5 days a week at 5:30 AM, on my computer doing my freelance SEO copywriting by 7 AM and on Fridays, when the work is not as heavy, I finished early …around noon most Fridays..Now..what the hell are YOU doing being so idle on a Friday? Oh and by the way? This is my retirement career. I retired from a job I held for 24 years and 10 months in environmental engineering. You are a loser aren’t you?

          • Eleanore Whitaker

            Janeen 3-names has yet to exist a single day when she wasn’t living off our tax dollars for her phony SSDI and welfare. It’s her damn right wing conservative states falling like a house of cards on them.

            Look at IA and KS..both states had to close schools before the official end of the school year. Then, you have WVA, begging federal dollars from FEMA while they go around pretending there is NO federal “gubbmint.”

            Once you add in the other conservative states like TN, KY, AL, NC and SC, you see how these freeloader states suck up more than 70% of every U.S. budget and then bitch it’s our states who do that.

            So..how exactly is it that states like KS and IA get back $1.45 for the $1 they pay in federal taxes and still run out of money? I’ll tell you how…most of our states average a lousy 55 cents for the $1 we pay but their Republican politicians make sure they head the House Ways and Means were money is allocated mostly to their states or they make sure they have the biggest mouths in the House where our tax dollars are dispersed..70% to their states.

            Whatever you do NEVER vote GOP for the House….it’s time these jackasses learned to use their state taxes instead of sucking off federal taxes.

          • Have you actually been to the “free money” office, yet? If so, you saw that an overwhelming majority of those “sucking up” tax dollars are black, and, if you ask, they are practically ALL sociacrats !! If anyone needs to “get a life”, as you put it, it’s them. But they’re afraid to because they may have to go to work, and we certainly can’t have that ! It would take away some of the time that could be spent having more babies to collect more “free money”!!!

        • Eleanore Whitaker

          Yes..and that someone is you Tootsie. You don’t get the news. All you get in DogPatch USA is BS. Guess it’s time for you phonies to get a life?

      • Get off your knees

      • Eleanore Whitaker

        Peter these people are not patriots. Thomas Jefferson, John Quincy Adams, Abraham Lincoln and Dwight D. Eisenhower were patriots. The people on this site are mental patients who are paid to troll all day, every day and bitch till the cows come home.

        You cannot present facts or truth to these nuts. But take heart…they are about to get their dumb asses dumped come 2017. We’ve all had just about enough of their bitching and hateful BS.

        • Trump……2016

        • eleanore whitaker, you talk out of your ass because your mouth knows better.Thomas Jefferson was no more than a worthless piece of shit, he used to use the cut off heads of Native Americans like a big ball to be kicked around by him and his people for sport, John Quincy Adams okayed the attempted genocide of millions of Native Americans, and ol’ honest Abe freed the blacks, so now we have to put up with a half-breed nigger for POTUS, welcome to the PLANET OF THE APES ( American style). If you don’t believe what I’ve written above, you can research it, that is if you have an open mind. Me I know Trump isn’t perfect, but by God I’m voting for him over lying cruz, lesbo hillary, kasich the interloper, and russky sanders.I’m tired of all the f–king foreigners trying to dictate what’s good for my family and me. I served in the U.S. Army 1st-35th Inf. 1st. rifle company, 3rd. platoon from ’68-70′, my dad in Korea, uncle WWII, Grandfather WWI, and many cousins in Iraq,Afghanistan etc.,etc. We fought and are still fighting to keep foreigners out of the Whitehouse, lyin’ teddy cruz is a illegal, who has no right to even run for POTUS, Hillary is a traitor who has possibly committed treason. So in closing GO TRUMP, the next POTUS.

          • Another trumpanzee has escaped from its excrement-strewn cage and found a computer.

          • Is that all you can do motherfucker, call people names because they don’t agree with your viewpoint, well FUCK off asshole, I can’t believe my family fought for your punk ass, and what have you done for MY country, have you served in the military during war, if so thank you for your service, if not then shut your fucking piehole!!! And another thing Native Americans everybody else are foreigners, you included.

    • Eleanore Whitaker

      This from a man dependent woman like you who can’t wipe your ass without Mr. Man’s approval? President Obama and my taxes keep your ass and your asshat state afloat. Get a job, get a life and get the hell off that DogPatch Porch. Lil Abner has had enough of your laying around all day.

    • Ignore the idiots ! You said it all and correctly too!!!

      • Fox News thinks you are not too well informed, old timer.

        “U.S. Economy ‘Lone Bright Spot,’ as Global Outlook Getting ‘Worse’”

        The World Bank is telling us… the U.S. economy is the only bright spot for global growth.

        http://www.foxbusiness.com/markets/2015/01/14/us-economy-lone-bright-spot-as-global-outlook-getting-worse/

        Sounds like the United States is lucky Obama chose this path or we
        would be suffering like Germany that is on the edge of recession.

        • And of course none of the people behind these “headlines” have anything to gain by publishing this stuff. If obama got ANYTHING right it was by pure dumb luck. He is the worst thing to ever happen to America, ever!

          • you are pretending that Fox News is pushing PRO Obama headlines?

            are you trying out for an “idiot” position?

          • A natural born American

            Seems that position is already taken…

          • I already gave it to you?
            or you just claiming IT.

          • A natural born American

            Now why would you think anyone would want to deprive you of such a grand ‘title’?

          • A majority of Fox News is owned by a muslim sheik out to protect the weakest president America has ever had. Putin b**ch-slaps him regularly, The Iranians f**ck him on the Iranian deal, our allies are worried and our enemies are delirious seeking ways to take advantage of the leaderless America.

          • No, that’d be You, Reality Sux, trying out for Head Chimp Crap Thrower, of Obammy’s African Luo Tribe

        • .5 growth? We sure are lucky!

        • Give Obama time. He has already imported 680,000 fighting-age muslims and wants to import more through the 300 sanctuary cities. In time, the US will resemble Germany.

          • “He has already imported 680,000 fighting-age muslims and wants to import more through the 300 sanctuary cities.”

            god you people are low functioning.

            no wonder Trump has supporters.

            so making up Poo is your rebuttal to a Factual post that cites world renowned economic organizations??

          • Another useful idiot that knows he has rights but doesn’t understand the responsibility accompanying those rights.

          • what does that have to do with YOU LYING?

          • Is that all you got impotent troll. Maybe you should proof-read your post before pressing enter and confirming to all your lack of intelligence.

          • Lack of intelligence?
            you’re the moron who thinks 680 THOUSAND fighting-age Muslims have immigrated.

          • Is that all you got. Get it right idiot, 680,000 fighting-age muslim refugees imported by Obama and he wants more. 0 christian refugees allowed same importation treatment by Obama. Keep posting and confirm to everyone your lack of intelligence.

          • I notice that no proof goes along with your silliness.

            you think this news would be front page, especially since that 2/3 of the yearly legal immigrant intake to the US.

            how did Obama pull that off without a BIG Stink on the right?

          • Reality check, your an idiot!

          • Not on your tintype…Germany was, at the time of Hitler’s rise to power, a country of people begging to be led. Modern Germans may be different, but taken in the context of the 1920s and1930s, Germany was in such bad financial shape due to a cost of living that escalated daily, not monthly or yearly that It was necessary for a family member to stand by at lunchtime, collect the paycheck (which was issued twice a day), then rush to the grocery store and pray that there was anything whatsoever available to buy. The exercise was also performed at the end of the day. My mother lived there at this time and saw it first-hand. The people were desperate for someone to put an end to that situation. Along came Adolph Hitler who promised that HE would be their savior, He hated the Versailles Treaty and vowed in his heart he would extinguish it.
            The difference between those Germans and Americans today is that we, as a people, have the ability to think for ourselves. We are a people who had the guts to leave the homeland, wherever it was, come to a new country and start all over again. Their progeny have been raised in that same mindset. Even the illegal immigrants want something better.
            Now I’m not talking about terrorists or drug dealers, I’m talking about people who are truly looking for a better way of life. They were able to make their own decisions and then take the necessary action. It’s unfortunate that they chose to do it illegally, but that isn’t my point in this comment. I’m talking about an entire people who Want to be led versus a people who want their government to do the right thing…which it hasn’t done for the last 8 years.
            Germany wasn’t struggling with an influx of illegal immigrants. For those who saw what was coming, it was more the other way around. Those people were fleeing the country as quickly as they were able. My grandfather brought my mother and grandmother home from Germany as soon as he realized what was about to happen.
            Big difference. America: people rushing to get in/Germany: people rushing to get out. America: people who can think for themselves/Germany: people begging to be led.
            The enormous difference is that up to the American Revolution, the entire world’s countries had been ruled by monarchies…Kings and Queens telling their subjects what they could do or not do. Then, seemingly out of nowhere this little country, so far away, decides to let the people run the government. Unheard of, outrageous. But we did it…and we want to be able to do it again.
            End of story……GO TRUMP!!!!!!!!!

          • Nice write up but, I think the League of Nations, with support from the American democraps, put Germany in dire economic circumstances as punishment for WWI that it made Germany ripe for any madman promising better economics. And by mobilizing the German industry, Hitler delivered on making Germany economics better. So successful, in fact, Roosevelt used the same principle to get America out of the Great Depression. Long story short, professional politicians of both parties share an ‘American Last’ ideology (see Phyllus Schlafly) that is selling out America. Go Trump 2016

          • Naaah! We’ve got Eeeevill Guns!! and can Kill the Krap out of the Goat Bangers!

      • StupidConservativeValues

        What a pair of tools you fucking rubes: Trump quote: The national debt and the national deficit are two distinct separate ententes and have differing implications. How come you never mention the U.S. government’s assets and use a balance sheet to see just how healthy the economy has come under Obama’s leadership when compared to the shit pile Bush and the Republicans left to clean up. You need to use a balance sheet dip wads.

    • a president who hated America would have let the country go even further down, silly con.

      lets examine reality for the low info American.

      Before Obama, we were losing 500,000 jobs per month
      After Obama, gaining 200,000 jobs per month

      Before Obama, GDP negative FOR A YEAR
      After Obama, GDP became positive and now the best in the G-20

      Before Obama, DOW 6500
      After Obama, DOW 18,000

      such destruction.

      Oh, and for the past few years car sales have been at record
      levels. 1 in 14 Americans bought a new car in 2013 & 14.

      2015 set a NEW RECORD in auto sales.

      you live in a cave or something?
      or just a brainwashed right wing nut?

      • Are not President only hate USA, are all Dems and liberals, that need deep clean.

      • Figures lie and liars figure

      • “losing 500,000 jobs per month … now gaining 200,000…” yeah, right lost 500k high paying jobs for Americans and gained 200k for non-americans that will take much lower salaries.

        “Before obama Dow 6500, after 18000” Before obama (May 6 2008) 13,000, during election slid to (Mar 6, 2009) 6600. it has taken 8 years and building the economy on foreign workers to struggle back up to (Feb 5, 2016) 16000 (http://www.macrotrends.net/1358/dow-jones-industrial-average-last-10-years)

        New car sales (http://www.goodcarbadcar.net/2012/10/usa-auto-industry-total-sales-figures.html) It was highest since 2000, but higher by 0.35%! Huge gain. Also look at yearly sales and see it tank on his election.
        Finally consider (http://abcnews.go.com/Business/average-car-american-roads-time-record-10-years/story?id=15406801) that the average car on the road is now nearly 11 years old. People are having cars wear out and having to buy new ones. Not a stellar record, nor one to be proud of.

        • “”losing 500,000 jobs per month … now gaining 200,000…” yeah, right
          lost 500k high paying jobs for Americans and gained 200k for
          non-americans that will take much lower salaries.”

          I guess the GOP is to blame.
          THEY were in charge for a decade as the 60,000 factories LEFT with the JOBS.
          JOBS was a major issue in 2004 election.

          they did NOTHING except make the move deductible.

        • “Not a stellar record, nor one to be proud of”

          NOT a DOOMED economy either, like you fools pretend.

      • Then why are record numbers on food stamps? Why are only 44% working full time?

        • I guess you missed the 2008 implosion and the 60,000 factories that left the country while the GOP were in control of congress.

          the loud sucking sound of jobs disappearing could be heard in 2003.
          jobs WERE a big deal in the 2004 election.

          too bad all the GOP did was make the move to China deductible.

          • Low-skilled democraps wanted more than their services were worth. Any money-making operation needs a good, inexpensive, low-skilled, labor force to minimize expenses and the Capitalistic free-market in America could not support the democrap unionized American low-skilled labor force. It is Economics 101 and I doubt Reality Check will understand.

          • so Mikey, junior economist,
            tell me how the economy of Germany with is 60% union labor, manages to survive?
            McDonalds workers make $20/hour and burgers cost about the same as here.
            go figure.

          • Yeah, The Nations in the Krapper! It’s all the Republican’s Fault! However, Trumps gonna get Elected, Soooo! There’s No Hope for Ya, Reality Check!! Put yourself out of Our Misery!

          • be sure to check in with me on nov 9 and see how that is going for you.

            you are so low functioning that you think the RNC are going to let him run.

        • Simple, Obama kept that promise to the low-skilled democrap voters and made public assistance more lucrative improving the welfare standard of living.

      • You pulling all these incorrect and misleading facts out of your A$$, useful idiot. Look a little closer, none of this is Obama’s but despite Obama’s best efforts to take America down. The old gray lady, much like other world leaders has b**ch-slapped that muslim president so many times. As first-term president, Obama was given $878,000,000 as part of the economic stimulus package (dissappeared down Unions throats, yeah, they swallow like most democraps) to correct the economic crisis he created while campaigning.

      • Hey Reality!! I’ve got an Old Spanish Conquistador’s Lost Treasure MAP! for Sale, If you believe the B’S coming out of Joshy Boy Earnest’s Yap!

    • A poetic justice for BABA? get rope and hang in public outside White House, second, order Army and FBI arrest all Dems in a 50 States and prosecute, close down Nazi party. Enemy like Mexico associate with Nazi for flood with illegals and set Illegals over US citizen, what problem Mexico had are not we problem, but out USA, terrorist cover under TV station promote illegals, force move out USA, business stop with Mexico and insolate, are a only language Mexican understand, and if we accept some immigrant be will a fraction number and we decide who come or not, but Mexico abuse for decades must end and paid a price, close, seal and reinforce with Army all border. We will take back a control and liberals better start scare and cry, this time are not joke.

    • put a duct tape on trump”s mouth he is telling people to go against all Immigrints even the Legal ones if all Immigrants gets deported what will Happen to International resturants? and people in the American Universities?if all people are going to be Deported then why did the Gvernment allow the American people to eat in international Resturants? and i did something to offend you i went to one Indian center and i ate Masala Dosa

      • He did not tell people to “go against legal immigrants”; he correctly pointed out that we have open borders with no restraint of people coming across the border illegally. A country cannot continue to exist with no control over its borders; it will go down in chaos–that is where we are now.

      • The legal immigrant who entered legally and became US legal citizens will never be deported! They deserve to be here and respected!

        • Because the legal immigrants become contributing members of society and not necessarily dead-weight democrap voters.

      • Quit listening to democraps trying to describe and define Trump. Trump understands that all Americans were immigrants at one time and all the immigrants helped form the back-bone of the American culture. He doesn’t want to deport legal immigrants but, Obama’s weak immigration policy, forcing over 300 sanctuary cities (see New Orleans) to harbor the illegal alien drug traffickers, rapist, murderers as potential democrap voters has to be stopped. I work IT with many H1B visa Hindu Indians (honorable people) and have occasionally gone to Indian restaurants but, what is Masala Dosa?

        • Patricia A Galle

          Trump is a life long liberal Democrat. He is pretending to be a Republican to destroy Cruz and ruin our party. He shoves his big mouth into our business and yells its rigged. He has never even read the constitution or the Bible. He is in no way conservative. Men in the girls room proves my point. He is heavily invested in both parties to grease the skids for his deals when he needs a favor (his words, not mine). That is the corrupt establishment in the flesh. He calls names and makes fun of decent people and laughs. When I was young, you got punished for that not rewarded. It is spiteful, hateful, and shows a complete lack of character, honesty or principles. Ted Cruz makes him look like the ignorant 70 year old fraud he is.

          • Pay attention to the desperate moves your professional politician Cruz is pulling to stay relevant. (ie announcing a female VP prematurely, primary contest collusion with Kasich). Sorry, I guess republicans have their brand of useful idiot too.

          • Patricia A Galle

            You sir are obviously not a conservative Republican. I will not try to educate an already closed mind. I support the constitution and the man that I have seen fight for it, all of his life. I like his pick for VP very much. She is a well educated intelligent, dignified capable woman. Many candidates through the years picked a running mate during the primaries, including Ronald Reagan. I like the idea myself. Your mind is made up with no research, and has been closed for some time. You are free to do as you choose, as am I.

          • Wrong again silly girl, I am as conservative as they come voting republican since I was able and like several million republicans tired of professional career politicians selling me out. Ask your girl Carly Fiorino about the outsourcing that occured while she was on the HP board. If she can’t fight the fat-boy HP board of directors over outsourcing, how is she going to handle the democrap power brokers in the Senate. Reid and Schumer will eat her up and possible make her cry right there in the Senate. Carly will be the first female VP and, most likely, the first breakdown in the Senate. Sure Reagan prematurely picked his VP but, he lost the nomination.

      • Must have been an all you can eat buffet?

    • Eleanore Whitaker

      A Confederacy where women have no voice is what you want Tootsie. It shouldn’t surprise anyone that a woman like you who can’t get off your ass and get any job other than being a Walmartian would want Trump to be president. You planning to sidle up to him in hopes he’ll dump Melania for you? Think again. The last time a harriden like you attracted a man he was already one of the walking dead.

      Too damn bad you can’t have a president bullshitter who swaggers and drawls like Bush did..a Maine born Texan like Cruz the Scuz…a Canadian born Texan. Yeesh…some women live off men so long, they’ve grown testicles.

    • Eleanore Whitaker

      What usurper? You mean Cheney who ran the presidency from the back room? Cheney whom you assholes voted for 2 times? You mean Bush the Tush who couldn’t stay in DC long enough to do his job? Or the pedophile you had for a Speaker of the House? Hastert? Or the womanizing Gingrich who leaves Wife No. 1 while she was undergoing chemo? Left Wife No. 2 when she was diagnosed with MS? Or maybe you mean the TexASS Speaker of the House who got his ass in trouble with Abramoff for trying to cheat the Native Americans on that casino deal?

      Now what do you shitbags have? The Donald, a womanizing piece of trash who on his best day of the week can’t find his way to the Charmin.

      And isn’t it funny how that Canadian Texan Cruz the Scuz and his side kick CEO bitch Carly Fiorina are gone gone gone? No one believes a word you dogshits post. Get a life Lazy Ass.

  2. How about just getting back to the Constitution and stopping all the criminal elements in government… trials, anyone???

  3. I just hope he brings all the political criminals to justice, and that means YOU Hillary!!

  4. I just about chocked on my tea and crumpets Reading that crap………who the F does he think he is………he is a vile turd with a very big Dirty gob

  5. We knew that Trump would come forth, and he sure makes sense.

  6. What a wonderful change there would be in the U.S. if everyone who voted for the current administration and the entire administration exercised the freedom to leave!

  7. AMERICA WILL BE SAVED BY TURN AROUND TRUMP. 8 YEARS OF COLOR COMMUNISM IS ENOUGH.

    • “COLOR COMMUNISM”

      You fools SO need to get over this”commie” bullshit?

      WE DON’T WANT TO GO COMMUNIST MORON OF THE RIGHT WING.

      Tell me, what is so appealing about Labor camps?

      what is so appealing about shortages of EVERYTHING?

      has you EVER seen a movie about commie USSR?

      ever read a book about it?

      AND why would we want to give up all the FREE STUFF you fools think we get to go to
      a labor camp?

      tell me the Shining light on the Hill of Communism, that is drawing in the liberals?

      OR,
      you cons are just plain stupid?

  8. so I guess you guys didn’t SEE his speech.

    DEER IN THE HEADLIGHTS
    I think that aptly describes his performance.

    not really Presidential if that is what he was going for

  9. Funniest speech in years. Thanks Donny.

  11. Our Founders were clear. NO unnecessary overseas military involvements were to be entertained.

    This country maintains nearly 800 military bases in more than 70 countries and territories abroad. Why? How does that benefit the American people? Other countries do not have that type of EXCESS yet they seem perfectly safe.

    Why is our country used EXCESSIVELY for war and domination? How many wars have been fought since our founding? Too many to list. Check out the list for yourself: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_wars_involving_the_United_States

    Time to shut down these bases, focus on MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN by building INFRASTRUCTURE, getting rid of Common Core, making FRIENDS with the rest of the world instead of trying to CONTROL the rest of the world, and returning to the powerful, greatly loved, generous country we were in the 1950s.

    • You sound Libertarian. Our Constitution IS the supreme Law of the Land, but many in Executive, Judicial, and Legislative branches swear an oath to it, and then defile themselves. Unfortunately, some of the Wiki war references need examination before acceptance as non-threatening wars (as in the Barbary Wars of early 1800s that have come back to us).

      • Gillian Grannum

        Actually, I’m simply a straight up Independent. There is value to be found in most platforms. I go for the one that offers the most value – which gets harder and harder to do each year. The Wiki war references are simply a demonstration of the EXTENT TO WHICH the American economy has been engaged in war – that Military Industrial complex against which we were warned. It is time for us to be who we are – a loving, prosperous nation and people who GET ALONG WITH rather than THREATEN the rest of this very small planet. Thanks for replying to my comment.

  12. Well said. But now some details…..such as is he prepared to set his feet down in office and start his first day running! Undo a lot of damage from the git go. Eliminate tons of wasteful spending! Get rid of Islamites! All of them! They serve a system of governing, a goverment, that is totall UN-American and have vowed to destroy America and kill all who are not obeying Islamic teachings of the Koran. It is not a religion, but it does support and encourage the egos of all men! They are killers and murders, and liars, and rapists under their system of government without any repercussions, no arrests, no imprisonment, etc. There is absolutely no negotiated true peace with them, never!

  18. Eleanore Whitaker

    In the words of our very intelligent President Obama, “Trump has a lot of foreign policy experience….With Miss Azerbajan, Miss Sweden and Miss Slovenia.” That isn’t the kind of foreign policy any president of the U.S., a world super power should have.

    Let it to the Doom and Gloom Twerpie Generation of bitchy right wingers to spend their entire lives in a Super Bitch.

    • Perhaps we just don’t want another infestation of OUR White House. Our current pResident never even completed a single term outside of Chicago, unless you include his youth in Indonesia, so Trump’s decades-long experience in world commerce makes him much more qualified than our current administration. How do you know obamao is very intelligent, since he spent millions to prevent the citizens from seeing his academic records? I’m sure you meant that I am also part of the “twerpie generation,” but eleanore whiTAKER, please tell us what you mean by your neologism (obvious insults that need explanation aren’t very effective).

      • Eleanore Whitaker

        According to the IL state records he was in the Senate from 1997 to 2004…Perhaps we who keep your asshat states in federal tax subsidies want YOU to move those lazy asses.

        Is that all you shitbags know? slash and burn, cut, cut, cut, sequester, shut down government and generally bitch till the cows come home?

        I know President Obama is respected everywhere in the world but by your right wing shitbags who spend most of your time puking up hate. Go booze another day on your Haterade.
