  1. Not to say "I told you so" but when this guy was running for president, I told every Trumpster I knew that he was a self serving egomaniac fraud who wasn't going to hold one promise (except the ones he made to his rich donors), and that he was going to tank the economy, but I always heard that he was a great business man who understood the economy better than anyone..Because he said so…

  2. ohhh my GOD Get ready for Trump 2020 do not believe any poll any more just follow the attendants in his rallies. thousands of people outside, cant not get in. All arenas full of supporters.

  3. Al Sharton is a total asswipe and you people believe what he says! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  4. The most alarming thing is that he’s showing symptoms of Alzheimer’s. That’s quite terrifying actually.

  5. The road to the white house goes through black society for the Democratic party. #Tangibles2020 #PayWhatUOwe
    #CutTheCheck

  6. The interesting thing is that the White House went out of its way to express that the President did NOT apologize. Now, that's kind of counter-intuitive — you'd think that they'd want to DOWNPLAY that fact, as it wouldn't sound very nice, and yet they made it explicit. Well, that just proves something about their branding: they've basically shown that they're going after the s***head vote.

  7. Come on he is not shaking at all because economy is better than ever, remember 2016 you guys had Hillary winning by land slide πŸ˜‚

  8. It feels too much that almost 40% of American voters may vote for Trump. But not all Americans are considered as American voters. Some people are too young, some people are considered too criminal, some people are not-American-enough, and some people are simply not registered as voters.

  9. Sanders/Warren or Warren/Sanders in 2020 please. I don't dislike Biden, i think he's fine. But i don't feel like he's the type of whole-sale change we need in the USA right now. Not only that but i think that Trump is rooting for Biden to win. He's exactly the type of candidate that won't excite the left to come out in big numbers(just like Clinton/Kane). In the case of a Biden campaign, the democrats will be running on the disapproval of Trump rather then the support of real change we believe in.

  10. I don't know weather to cry or laugh for yr country no hope for America with a thing like that at the helm ,,,,REALLY! how did this happen?/ mindboggling

  11. Why are we letting him take credit for Obama's work? He cut taxes for the rich, then spent 80 billion on the military.
    How many times do we have to see "trickle down" economics fail?
    The economy needs to be scrutinized. Who's "actually" responsible for today's economy; by the facts. In the last 30 years, Democrats have beaten Republicans like a drum on the economy. Their policies do not work, so instead they just take credit for ours. I'm hoping Joe and or others, will take it to him on that.

  12. Trump is an international embarrassment, I have long held the view that his mental stability has deminished, i can not wait for that racist to get indicted by the Southern District Of New York for fraud, obstruction and corruption.

  13. He loses the election he'll be prosecuted for a dozen different things, leading him to the first expresident to wear an orange jump suit. An he saw what happens to billionaires in jail. He will do just about anything and everything to avoid that fate. Could get ugly. That orange hair, orange skin will create an interesting monotone with that orange jump suit.

  14. Yey they cheer,"Trump also hates fat people. Isnt he amazing and great." Sheep! 60% of Americans are obese. That's a kind estimate. Thank you for your content.

  15. Not. He was ordered to collapse this nation, and he did it. Support is nothing but a propaganda mirage. No one is representing the MASSES against him.

  16. New York Times is not to be taken seriously. I have observed their reporting for several years and have come to the conclusion that they are not very credible and have their own narrative that they promote, simply put, they are a very dangerous ''news" source.

  17. Pretty early yet, but it looks strikingly similar to the polls from last election…
    which obviously means, just like last time, that Trump doesn't have a chance.

  18. will be fulfilled God put trump in office whether u believe or not he will be there for two terms because that almighty said so .u will see this is true once he win again

  19. People forget that there is a God he sit on the throne he choose who he want to be president or kings here on earth the great awakening is coming and million will know jesus is the truth God.

  20. More fake news from one of the leaders in fake news. Trump has said many times that he does not live by the numbers and at this point in the election timeline, the polls are meaningless. He MSNBC claims to have direct internal news on Trump "yet" they have a clear history of not having anyone inside. They use the same lies to "claim" things they do not have real substance. he commented on someone who was being thrown out and made some jokes…

  21. Biden is not a strong enough candidate against republicans. Beware of the statistics. As an outsider, the sequence of events this time around is strangely like 2016 elections. Don't be fooled by numbers. Everyone needs to go out and vote.

  22. Stop telling people Trump will lose so easily.. We gotta get to the polls.. Security is not a feeling that we need to be feeling about this. That's what happened last time. Democrats thought Hillary was a lock and they were wrong.

  23. Kamala Harris has no foreseeable path and people know the truth now. Her identity politics based campaign is effectively over. She is a walking zombie candidate now whose express duty is to dilute the nomination vote from the real front runner "Sanders" in this race.

  24. Andrew Yang MUST win this election, for the sake of the whole globe! Please America, show the world that you're once again in the top of the chain. Make Andrew president πŸ™‚

  25. I lose brain cells listening to this man talk. The more he opens his mouth the deeper hole he burys himself in. He's running out of people and things to blame for his failures as a president. It's actually embarrassing to know we've allowed our country to run by such a goofy goober. It's time to move on past this ridicouls reality show and get this mad man out of office. It doesn't matter what these polls say please get out there and vote. I can't stress enough how important this election is

  26. The lying an negativity out of these MSNBC presenters. Why should a present have to put up with a media so biased? Make MSNBC illegal.

  27. LMFAO! Leftists so desperate for a recession. This is sooo pathetic. And one of the main reasons its going to be another 4 years of Trump.

  28. The propaganda reporters doing their best to create a recession with lies. Better millions of Americans suffer that their evil liberal dreams come true.

  29. Remember if the economy takes a dive Mr. President it was the feds fault not yours sir.. remember the interest rate hikes

  30. I hope he is doing the flag thing again… please…. hug the flag for me once more, making a baby-face at the same time… this is so cool….!!!!

  31. The Epoch Times is run by a Chinese cult called Falun Gong. Their leader claims Trump is the 2nd coming of God. The leader also claims he can fly and go through walls. They also run a platform that pushes Qanon conspiracies. Google it.

  32. What a biased report! As ludicrous as Trump is with ex. his spat with Denmark over the absurd behaviour of going to the press wanting buy Greenland like it is a slave era commodity, he managed to chock the world by winning the election. Bernie Sanders will not win over Trump, because the swing voters do not want a Social Democrat society like Denmark/Sweden anno 2019 , but they might like the 1960 version of that when the tax burden was half of what it is today, economies were booming, education and health care was free but when we had 10+:1 private sector to public sector employees VS 2:1 today. In 1960 each private sector employee had to pay for 1Β½ people vs 3 people today. Today we (Denmark) has about 17 citizens per employee in industrial vs 4 in 1960.

  33. Oh my God, stop selling a recession! It seems you support Socialist/Communist with a Satanic AGENDA, you go against Christians and peaceful religions like fallen gong and yet support Islamic extremists! Wtf is wrong with you

  34. Trump is protecting the child trafficking in the USA. What does that tell you? He didn't name the prosecutors and people neglecting to arrest the pervs. He didn't name the pollies protecting the pervs. Trump is guilty.

  35. calling all school shooters you have a new mission now taking down the talking heads of the media giants want to see media poop it's pants take aim at their talking heads and those corporate masters telling them what to say you would see the biggest gun confiscation in history once the elites were under attack quickly with no dissenters in congress or the senate lets make 2020 an all american year the so called rulers won't forget we own the so called masters lets make it clear to them. GOD BLESS AMERICA

  36. DON'T TRUST FOX POLLS.

    They always undercount their candidate to frighten voters to get off their arses to vote for their candidate.
    Remember HR Clinton?
    Remember Brexit ?

  37. What a joke…Dems made that up…Trump will make them look as they are..STUPID….Have illusions of grandeur….listen to fake news ..perhaps Biden should be tested….talk about repeating or not able…Sharpton should talk about going home and reading…That puke will only hurt Dems….He looked bad fat and worse skinny…

  38. 5 min. in to watching news I am done . Bolshit ! America shake up. Trump, trump , trump. He should be all ready gone people .
