Hell even his fellow Republicans disliked McCain, he was a backstabber.
McCain was of the most respected people in Congress. Not just by Republicans ,but by Democrats as well. Trump didnt like him because McCain questioned his policies, and expected him to actually know what he was doing. And the other Republicans fell in line with Trump because they were all coward who wer afraid of losing votes by opposing Trump.

Then you had the thing where Trump said he had no respect for former POW's because they were stupid enough to get captured, which is what drove McCain completely against Trump and made him stop trying to work with him at all

The point of view of sheep and other intellectually stunted drones. Got any other NPC observations?

Saying that if you don't vote, you get what you deserve is the viewpoint of sheep? Even on the level of trumptards, you are a moron. Fuck off, don't waste my time.

Trump is not a Republican, doesn't matter what he calls himself, he is not a Republican.

Doesn't take much intelligence to cut and paste. What kind of a sad person makes their whole life about Trump? That sad person would be you. Other people have interests. They have hobbies, projects, things they're working on, things they're built. Pictures they've taken, stories about places they've been or things they've done.

You have none of those., Just Trump spray-painting pictures of dicks on the inside of your head, and urinating in some dark corner of your medulla oblongata.

:laughing0301:
You don't debate very well. Using Trump quotes among other things to prove a point is not mindlessly copy/pasting, it's called backing up and proving your point. Playtime did and you skulked. You lost.

America First. D'uh.

Sure.
Just a campaign slogan for his gullible cult.

President Xi of China, and I, are working together to give massive Chinese phone company, ZTE, a way to get back into business, fast. Too many jobs in China lost. Commerce Department has been instructed to get it done!

Four more years to clean out the swamp? Every appointment was a certified swamp creature.

All the great Republicans who came after the Democrats had their own doctrines: the Eisenhower Doctrine supplemented by the principle of inevitable retribution and the Dulles plan, and the Reagan doctrine. And Trump didn't have anything, did he? This could mean that he is an agent of the left.
Why did Putin not like McCain, but immediately got along with Trump?
Great Republican is an oxymoron.

Nope. A general statement of intent, much like MAD, or The Great Society.

Big ideas, can be given...titles, that give a general idea of their purpose. Details are there if people care to look further.


That you can't admit this obvious truth, is because on some level, you know that Trump's rise was the RIGHT THING TO HAPPEN, and you have to hold to lies, to deny it.


It is all you have.

No, it wasn't.
'Too many jobs in China lost' is specific.

Look it up.
Trump's rise was the right thing? LOL.

No, not only did Trump help a company doing business with N. Korea and Iran, Trump had to get something for himself.

May 15 2018
Trump did not mention in that tweet or its follow-ups that on Thursday, the developer of a theme park resort outside of Jakarta had signed a deal to receive as much as $500 million in Chinese government loans, as well as another $500 million from Chinese banks, according to Agence France-Presse.
Trump’s family business, the Trump Organization, has a deal to license the Trump name to the resort, which includes a golf course and hotels.

Trump drops sanctions, gets a $1 billion check from China.
Quid pro quo, Donnie strikes again.

I don't know. Why does Trump bring out the worst in you and your fellow liberals?
He understands what made America great during the early years and he understands we need to follow the direction of our Founding Fathers.

WOW.
Trump doesn't know how to spell constitution, let alone follow it.

Since taking office, he has been seizing powers for himself that are assigned exclusively to the Legislative Branch under Article I of the Constitution. These exclusive powers include taxing; borrowing and spending; carrying out acts of war; regulating domestic and international commerce; and others.

President Trump has instructed government officials to ignore subpoenas from committees of the House of Representatives requiring testimony and the production of data. He has laid claim to “absolute immunity” for himself as well as for present and former members of his staff and has instructed members of agencies outside the White House not to testify. That behavior led to the other article of impeachment advanced in the House—obstruction of Congress.

Trump’s taking funds set aside for projects on U.S. military bases in the U.S. and Europe to instead build his promised wall on the Mexican border. The latter action seems especially egregious in light of Congress’s explicit refusal on more than one occasion to approve construction of that wall.

President Trump treated the G7 summit like a commercial for his businesses, inviting foreign governments to line his pockets next year and hold their next meeting at his Doral, FL, golf course.

January 6th.

Just a short list.

Trump knew what's best for America. It's a damn shame he couldn't get more of the border wall built.

Trump knew what was best for Trump, not anything or anyone else.

So, did Mexico finally send Donnie a check?
BFD. There's an easy solution. Tax tacos, tequila, and soccer tickets and spend that money on the border wall. That way Mexican-Americans pay for the wall.

Trump's solution was to shut down the government, then when that didn't work, he just took from the military.

January 24 2020
The Pentagon — not Mexico — will again be paying for the construction of President Donald Trump’s wall on the US’s southern border, to the tune of $7.2 billion in 2020.

The White House will use last year’s national emergency declaration to pull $3.5 billion from military counter-drug enforcement, up significantly from the $2.5 billion taken from the same program in 2019. An additional $3.2 billion will be taken from Department of Defense construction projects for additional fencing projects. The number is more than five times the amount allocated to barrier construction by Congress for 2020.

The funds transfer would bring the total amount devoted to border wall construction under Trump to $18.4 billion. So far, the administration has only completed about 101 miles of barrier construction, far short of the 450 miles Trump promised to complete by the end of this year.

Then, just like his daddy, Steve Bannon would just get gullible Trumptards to pay for the wall.

Former Trump Campaign manager and White House adviser Steve Bannon and three others are being indicted for illegally funneling money from a crowd sourcing project to build a border wall. Prosecutors in Manhattan say the defendants defrauded hundreds of thousands of Americans who contributed to the “We Build The Wall” project where they promised 100-percent of the money would be spent on building a wall between the U.S. and Mexico.
Prosecutors claim the four men took hundreds of thousands of dollars of funds from the 25-million raised. They also claim they took steps to hide the money they took, including creating false invoices.
