  1. A PRESIDENT IS NOT REMOVED from OFFICE in time of a WAR SO WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN IN 2020 Have a GOOD LOOK at what tRUMP IS DOING and WHAT IS GOING ON NOW THE UNREST, HATE, RUSSIA, N.K.with BOMBS going off!!!!! Now he has fruit, veg rotting in the fields and ONLY GREEN CARDS IF YOU Are RICH, having private insurance and having a high credit score. And attacking Endangered Species in 30 DAYS!! PUTTING MINES, TAKING OIL FROM PARKS ETC!!! LOOK, LISTEN, !!EYES WIDE PEOPLE!!
    Live Life with Your Heart
    Care, Kindness, Understanding

  2. We talk and hear about this to DEATH DEMOS put on some big boy pants and go get him, you don't have to mention his name just do IT.  (NIKE)

  3. The World is on Fire: Possible China taking over Honk Kong, their
    rights getting torn down. A Future reflection of what's going to happen
    to the United States.

    Trump Supporters: Digging underground bunker homes Deep into the
    ground.

    Trump: This is fine..

  4. Turnip tRump doesn't give a care what is going on in America or the world. All his focus is on making money for himself and for being forever on the front page of every news station cause he needs attention, good or bad (and it is always bad in his case).

  5. This is the first American News Media that showed the American flag in China during this disgusting act by their government.

  6. Racist Islamaphobic extremist Hindu Modi is the Trump and BiBi of India.

    Islamphobic Dictator Xi is the Trump of China

    So, its no brainer Trump is silent.

  7. clearly no one expected the current occupant of the white house to anything but make matters worse. Most american citizens cannot stand trumpanzee. we are looking to sending him or it ( possibly not human) somewhere as far as away as possible! Anyone looking for test pilots or astronauts, please feel free to recruit the mfer. thank you

  8. Trump is too busy starting his own racial divide in the United States! That devil is happy with what's going on in the world!

  9. Why do we involve ourselves in foreign affairs?

    A good way to get that answer is to stop involving ourselves in foreign affairs.

    I don't think we will like it though.

  10. It's not that Trump sorta wants China to crack down on the protesters. Trump definitely wants China to come in with guns blazing and mow down the protesters. Is there any doubt?

  11. MSNBC corporate media is itching for war using American young blood. They support Hilary who caused trump to be potus.

  12. Don't know why imran khan Goes to America for resolving kashmir. It was thanks to america they suffered many more years of occupation after kargil. Allies don't make u lose 103 billion fighting its so called war on terror so u bomb ur own country to benefit enemies already against its existence.
    The British are the ones who created the problem knowing the issue and should correct it. Kashmir belongs to Kahsmiris n it should be their decision. Having said that the international community must intervene when fascism n nazism has taken over a country n it stops following all international laws n Geneva conventions. The west waits for genocides n will comment about it… Only so they can invest in India or kashmiri land resources. Its Never really about justice or what's right for the peple. Peace keepers title n veto power only for self interests
    #PALASTINE
    #freekashmirfromindia

  13. Not a word from Trump about protesters in Hong Kong. No demanding transparency from Russia. Trump is more allinged with 🇨🇳 & 🇷🇺 then the 🇺🇸. Pathetically.

  14. You guys push Russia 24/7 non-stop, yet Epstein who ran a human trafficking, underage gilrs ring and was close to ZFeloow Jew Ehud Barak former prime minister of Israel, tons of billionaire friends, had been with presidents and politicians and government agency haeds, and he died by suicide when there was no place to hang from,, and nothing but paper clothes and sheets to hang with? The biggest story in the world and you dont really ask any questions, this is why no one trusts the Jewish media, it is like the FBI and CIA and DOJ, tools of the globalist elite Jews and pedos to cover up their crimes.

  15. Unfortunately the USA is not qualified to act as ‘the police.’ You have more problems than the rest of the world and you are again headed towards causing a global recession. Too bad you didn’t learn anything from your last screw up(s)… Sheesh. Maybe it has something to do with too much fat … Look at the size of president Dumpster and Barr. Huge Pieces of Shyte!

  16. Hong Kong folks do not fully trust the direction and force of the Chinese Government…The Chinese Government is treating this uprising with domino logic…They see it as the slippery slope that could lead to another Taiwan…Taiwan sees it as one more degree of separation from the Chinese Government…Hong Kong is a city in China….with some serious differences about political representation…

  17. If China’s President Xi sends his army into Hong Kong & we see a massacre… Trump just sees Tanks rolling in… and he LIKES that – becos in his head Xi is a being "a strong leader". Trump wishes he could have done that to the protesters in US airports against the Muslim Ban etc.

  18. Trump lives on his own planet. The planet is called Trump1. There are no other countries on planet Trump1. Except Mar-a-Lago.

  19. Remember when Iran students protested and Obama sat on the sideline? I swear it is history repeating itself, just flip the right and left

  33. America is looking so weak. The office of the president is not presidential. This country is so divided on so many fronts that we can’t see the real problems we face. All great nations fall due to division. The United States are no exception. There will be a intervention that will bring the powers that be in their place. The words of the Bible are coming to life. Other countries are watching the most powerful country implode. Everyone God gave life to has a right to this earth, and the natural resources it has to offer. The right to raise their families, and should have health care, quality time with family. It would be nice to have six weeks paid time off like our government officials. We spend more time at work than with our own family. Some of us are working two or more jobs to make ends meet. This is a travesty. We need to update our educational system with the truth. Teach our kids how to not be afraid to start their own business, how to use credit to their advantage without over extending it. How to have compassion for the people for the people in need. The gridlock has to stop. We act so primitive. If you think about it look at how some of the insects of this world work together by instinct, and build protect, and live without money, no slavery, no jealousy, no desire to be seen as better than the the other. Yet we are so superior. They have a common goal….we don’t. That’s why we all are going to pay the price for stupidity. No matter your nationality or how much money you have. This planet can be a great place with unity not diversity. God bless us all.
