Hes turning them away at the door too? What happened to that welcome mat you say he laid out?
The debt increased partly due to the revenue shortage from the Great Recession. It had already been caluculated to increase before he even took office. The ACA was a heavy hit. Economically, he added more like 7 TRILLION. But I'm sure Obama haters like the sound of 20. Well, if Trump gets his way, we'll be at 27 TRILLION.
Coal's dead. Doesn't bother me. Retrain the workers to fuel a new energy boom.
Oil imports are the lowest they've been in 47 years. There's also a supply glut driving prices down and shutting down domestic producers. You know another way to decrease imports? Lower demand through renewables.
By all means, keep 'em coming sport. Maybe one of these rounds you'll actually make a valid point and talk about an actual mess, instead of tired old anti-Obama points.
William Sherman Mar 21, 1:25 a.m.
Hate to tell you sport---but stopping people at the border and turning them around before they enter the US is not deportation. And again, the biggie is Obama's increasing the national debt to $20 TRILLION dollarsl--how does that sit with you?? Or his efforts to close down the coal industry? Or his refusal to allow oil exploration in areas where known reserves were available thus keeping us dependent on foreign oil? Should continue there hot rod???
Howard Roark Mar 20, 11:30 p.m.
Ah, Trump.. he's being so many of us together, amarite?
His tax plan has been analyzed, and will add 7.2 TRILLION to the debt. Perhaps you missed that little nugget.
Obama deported more illegals than any other president in history. They chose to focus on the criminals first.
What else ya got, sport?
William Sherman Mar 20, 11:04 p.m.
How about $20 TRILLION in debt, our nation divided along every possible line imaginable, a history of ignoring the constitution and laws of the US, the increasing flow of illegal aliens into the US, and the past administrations efforts to protect the illegals already here. Hows them for starters??
Howard Roark Mar 20, 10:53 p.m.
just curious...what's the mess?
Howard Roark Mar 20, 10:51 p.m.
Confirming no evidence exists doesn't take much time at all.
Providing the public with evidence during an ongoing investigation is generally not a good idea. It could hinder the investigation. They're pouring through all that evidence now. May take a while.
Just be patient.
John Jones Mar 20, 10:33 p.m.
Hey Albert, I'm still waiting on evidence Trump colluded with the Russians to throw the election. How long does it take? It seems it only took a short period for Comey to say Obama didn't wire tap Trump.
Albert Furter Mar 20, 9:57 p.m.
Speak more about the "mess". It is one of Trump's favorite memes. The country is still waiting for some actual contents to those allegations.
William Sherman Mar 20, 9:32 p.m.
Oh the American People were fooled twice, and look at the mess he left us in..
Albert Furter Mar 20, 8:56 p.m.
I cannot imagine that Trump would do another for years, even if the America people could be fooled twice. The presidency is so much out of his league and with his unwillingness to learn and him ticking off 3/4 of the people he has to deal with, he will not have it any easier than now. Just wait for the first actual crisis coming up. So far he has been dealing with self inflected drama only and his administration is already in chaos.
Bobby Lee Jimmy Billy Mar 20, 8:15 p.m.
The courts may give him 8 to 12 years.
Bobby Lee Jimmy Billy Mar 20, 8:13 p.m.
Wrapped up in a flag - that's your selling point?
Bobby Lee Jimmy Billy Mar 20, 8:11 p.m.
Or they could have used trained cockroaches.
Albert Holmes Mar 20, 6:35 p.m.
AFter listening to the news today and Comey I personally hope that President Trump destroys both of them !
Michael Bawden Mar 20, 6:25 p.m.
Maybe you ahould be testifying instead of Comey and Rogers.
Howard Roark Mar 20, 5:48 p.m.
Seems simple enough. So, we have the CIA and the FBI who have publicly stated they have nothing to support the accusation.
So, to get this thing going, Trump should just hand over all that evidence he had to make the accusation. Oh, I forgot. He said he was just parroting Fox News, and he shouldn't be blamed for what he said.
So, should we ask Nepolitano where he got his evidence that caused Man-baby to send out the tweet storm? Perhaps he has some...
Ed Livesay Mar 20, 5:19 p.m.
Most folks are simply not considering the possibility of an illegal wiretap..... who said that it had to be legal? There would be no FISA warrants with an illegal tap... and just to say it, a microwave dang-sure CAN be modified to serve as a tap.
Michael Bawden Mar 20, 4:51 p.m.
Does it not bother anyone that the government cant seem to keep ILLEGAL leaks from happening?
As they say at the hearings, the leaks are criminal acts punishable up to 10 years in prison. Yet no one ever loses their job because "intelligence" agencies cannot stop leaks from happening. This is why "draining the swamp" is so important. The latest CIA leak should cost senior management their jobs for deriliction of duty. Until senior management experiences repercussions, Americans being spied on or caught up WITH someone else being spied on, this political BS with leaks will never go away.
All members of congress are just as complicit. Members should be asked why there is NEVER any action to find the leakers and prosecute.
David McCabe Mar 20, 4:47 p.m.
That's all well and good Bobby, but the American people are going to give him 8 years.
Howard Roark Mar 20, 4:34 p.m.
Well, then Trump has nothing to worry about. Maybe he can stick to governing and stuff like that.
No need to worry his orange little head with something that will lead to a dead end. In the meantime, let's just let the law enforcement agencies do their thing. I'm sure it will all go away in due time.
Bobby Lee Jimmy Billy Mar 20, 4:34 p.m.
I give Trump 6 months.
Albert Furter Mar 20, 4:22 p.m.
There is a lot of smoke pointing towards collusion of the Trump campaign with the Russians. And Trump's ongoing lies are not helping him.
Teddy Fowler Mar 20, 4:02 p.m.
There is no there there.... otherwise it would have been leaked a long time ago... it's just a waste of time.... and we all know it...
Howard Roark Mar 20, 1:54 p.m.
I'd say the confirmation of no evidence of wiretapping exists, despite Trump's public accusations without evidence would also be kinda big news...
But that may just be me...
Patrick Morningstar Mar 20, 1:17 p.m.
So the big news is that they are investigating? wow. Knew that since last summer. But they have said multiple times that there is no proof. So when do we discuss the content of these emails that the Russians supposedly leaked??? Crickets... There is however proof that democrats are leaking classified info to the press.
Albert Furter Mar 20, 1:10 p.m.
If it had been after Trump's statement of "reassurance", Michael Flynn would still be national security adviser. Michael Flynn is the guy who "forgot" under oath that he had multiple meetings with the Russian ambassador, who the US intelligence community regards as a top Russian spy. Michael Flynn is also the guy who "forgot" to mention that he is on the payroll of the Turkish government. He also "forgot" that he was supposed to register as a foreign agent.
Larry Fellers Mar 20, 1:08 p.m.
Everything is fake to y'all! Lol! Maybe you should look in the mirror!
Howard Roark Mar 20, 12:15 p.m.
So, Travis.. please help us all out and tell us what your source of information is. I am well aware of media bias, so I need to know where I can get my unbiased information.
Got any sources for us?
Larry Fellers Mar 20, 11:55 a.m.
You know Trump supporters don't believe in REAL FACTS! They like ALTERNATIVE FACTS and not the Truth!
Megan Goodson Mar 20, 11:42 a.m.
Finally. Someone puts Trump in his place. Now get off Twitter and do your job or get out.
Albert Holmes Mar 20, 11:04 a.m.
Comey has done nothing but cover up crime from Loretta Lynch to Hillary Clinton to Bill Clinton etc. He should not even be in law enforcement. He should be fired. I support all law enforcement but as long as he is employed with the FBI I will not support them !
Travis Perry Mar 20, 10:30 a.m.
What evidence. There is no evidence. Never has been and never will be. Dems lost and now are trying to delegitimize Trump. Bunch of whiny babies. If they had evidence, they would have released it. Instead they keep pushing lies in the media (their propaganda wing). The left is out to destroy this country. How scary is it that all they seek to do is to silence anyone that disagrees with them. Doesn't that sound like freedom?
Marianne Tioran Mar 20, 10:11 a.m.
FBI and CIA says no proof of this. Hillary made up this lie, about 17 different agencies proving it, and it has perpetuated since then...if there was proof, then it would have been revealed and trump disqualified...
