  • Trump Rally Claim

    He made this false statement:

    "So whether you are a Democrat, Republican, or independent: If you don't want your sons and daughters drafted to fight and die in distant foreign lands, if you don't want your nation wrecked, if you don't want your economy destroyed, if you don't want American blood and American treasure squandered in a needless global war, then your choice in this election is simple: You must vote for President Donald J. Trump"


    If it was true I would vote for him. But he's already making noises about jumping in head first in the Israeli/Gaza conflict. Unfortunately, the only candidate that I know of who truly would avoid an unnecessary foreign conflict is JFK Jr., but his domestic policies are disastrous. No good choice for 2024.

    The whole situation is strange, because the war hawks who were stoking the fires in Ukraine want us to back away from Israel, which I suspect is why President Trump is for helping them, even though by all accounts, Israel is doing just fine on their own and will wipe out Hamas as long as nobody else intervenes.
    Some may call me foolish, and some may call me odd
    But I'd rather be a fool in the eyes of man
    Than a fool in the eyes of God

      That's the trendy thing to do, apparently; to sympathize with Hamas. But as far as I'm concerned, it's just another never-ending quagmire that the US needs to avoid.

        For one thing, we know Trump is a blatant liar anyway. But, for another he may well keep us out of wars, out of supporting our democratic allies and out of defending American interest around the world such as in Ukraine and Taiwan and that is because Trump himself is anti-democracy and anti- American. Trumps true allegiances to the Autocratic countries around the world. Trump, wannabe dictator that he is, would like nothing more than to destroy Democracy here in the U.S. and then along with his Dictator friends around the world, surround and crush it everywhere. He's also lying about the economy, of course, which relatively speaking is doing pretty darn well under Biden. Anybody know what ever happened to that horrendous recession everyone was predicting.

            You are so far out in left field that a reasoned response is futile.

              I meant RFK Jr., obviously. I keep making that mistake.

                  No, just less naive, much wiser and less susceptible to con men than most all those of you on the right are. You conservatives have shown youre naivete when it comes to seeing Trump for exactly who he is. So, in answer to your analogy, you're sitting in the bleacher seats with the sun in your eyes and so can't see clearly the game that Trump is playing.

                    When Trump speaks, what he says tells you much less about what is true, than about what he thinks his audience wants to hear.

                      In this case, he is definitely speaking from both sides of his mouth.

                      That can't always be the case because much of his 2016 campaign rhetoric was acted upon.

                        Yeah, sometimes what he believes lines up with what his audience wants to hear. I'm just saying that the latter takes precedence.

                          If they took everything Trump ever owned away from him he'd still be a real estate tycoon based upon all the space he has in the heads of people like Little jimmy.

                          I'm always still in trouble again

                            What's the point of pejorative nicknames like that? What are you getting out of it and is worth what you're losing? Is it compatible with a Christian ethic?

                              Sure there is. Biden has done a remarkable job so far. The U.S. economy has recovered faster and is doing better than any of the major countries in the world. The predicted huge recession never occurred, inflation, no he didn't cause it, is down and wages are up. Manufacturing jobs are coming back, Unions are on the rise. NATO is united once again, after Trump tried to tear it down, Russian aggression is being crushed due to Ukraines fight for freedom and democracy and NATO's, thanks to Biden, strong support and military and economic aid. The stock market, though he doesn't trumpet it every day as did Trump, has been doing great since he's been in office. He's been instrumental in getting hostages released and aid to the Gazans while supporting Israel in there war against Hamas. Most importantly he stands up for freedom and democracy as opposed to Trump and his new Republican Party of fascist Autocrats backed by wealthy Plutocrats who are trying to undermine and overthrow it. You can mimic the talking heads and whine about his age all you want, but he's done the job and done it well.
