    While, in other news... I must say that President Trump's hair color has much improved. It's small victories like this that just warm my little (every 4 weeks) roots. Just saying

    True Americans are disappointed but not surprised. All the hate from the left is not having any results. The President's approval rating is at 53%, and the stock market rally show no signs of slowing down. Okay we can we all just agree to put Reagan and Trump on Mt. Rushmore. We could put both Clinton's, Andrew Johnson and Obama on a hill called Mt. NoMore.
