Once was enough. It was excellent strategy for Trump to work with Pelosi and Schummer in order to admonish his own dark powered party members. However to proceed any further would put Americans in harm’s way. These people are political criminals. Their actions are acts of treason, but as usual, the politicians actually get away with murder and plans for sabotage. That’s history. But Trump is a hero in our midst, and I believe he will, and is able to stand up for the exit of the children of illegal immigrants. Americans should not be punished any longer, and if they are, there will be an end according to God’s plan.

Barbara H. Your joking, right! The democrats have no problem with illegals being here and the citizens of the country supporting them. The democrats have no problem in trying to elect an evil woman that murders, lies and cheats. The democrats have been manipulating this country for way to long. And yet when a man comes in and tries to protect our country and it’s citizens you want to protest, vandalize and act like a bunch of idiots and you have a problem with the republicans. I do admit there are a lot of corrupt republicans too and Trump is trying to get rid of them. This is why all the politicians are upnin arms. They are losing their easy meal ticket and they don’t like it. Stand with Trump and watch him take these criminals in our system down.

No offense Barbara M., it is the republicans that are THUGS AND COMPLETELY UNTRUSTWORTHY! I’m still trying to figure out why you think the republican party is anything but MONSTERS!
September 13, 2017,6:42 pm
It’s the only way he MIGHT save his presidency!!!
September 13, 2017,6:40 pm
Democrats are Americans. But Pelosi & Schumer don’t change spots. Just remember a snake bites if given the chance.
September 12, 2017,10:25 am
He knows what rotten untrustworthy snakes they are, this will never change
September 11, 2017,11:35 pm
You know,everytime it SEEMS President Trump made an oops,it turns out he is right.I gotta trust him here!
September 10, 2017,7:24 pm
Whatever it takes to get the job done. The GOP doesn’t seem to want to work with President Trump.
September 10, 2017,12:50 am
Trump has to work with Democrats! The Republicans are so fragmented and self centered, they will never get anything done!
September 10, 2017,12:10 am
If the house keeps electing Paul Rino they deserve anything bad that happens too them.

Trump has nothing to loss & everything to gain. If he works with either the GOP or the Democrats to get things he promised done, he takes credit & wins in 2020. If the GOP keeps up their bullshit not work with him, they’ll LOSS their majority in either branch of Congress or maybe both, BUT the electorate
will see it wasn’t him that fucked them, but his own party.
I don’t think his base & independents will hold that against him & still- re-elect him in 2020.
He will still have the VETO power to veto any bullshit the Dems come up with,& if it’s a split Congress we’ll be back to the same bullshit when it was split during the Obama years, NOTHING getting done.
Since the President has a 2 term limit he can retire from politics & return to the business world & let someone else solve the countries & the worlds problems.
See it’s great to live in America.
September 9, 2017,5:47 pm
It will never work. The Dems will knife Trump in the back. There liars and thiefs and some should be put jail,
September 9, 2017,5:34 pm
The idea of the President working with the Democrats is like an owner in of a lot of sports teams.
If your team can’t give you WINS ,you start to look for a new coach or some new key players. You as the owner are seeking to make money & to do that you must have a team that PLEASES THE FANS. If you don’t, your not a good businessman. The country is like a business & we express our likes & dislikes as to the performance of the coach ( the President ) & the team ( Congress ) in the form of elections.
As ‘FANS ” of a team , we call for a “change ” from the coaches on down to the players, when the team is not performing ,but as voters we seem to except the same NON-performance from the politicians who can’t get a fu*king thing done, year after year, decade after decade.
WHY? And when we do get someone who wants to change the ” same old, same old ” we get 1/2 the country protesting ANY CHANGE that person wants to make.

Trump is President of ALL THE PEOPLE of the country, Republican, Democrat, liberal, conservative, white, black, yellow, male or female. He has brought up discussions that for to long have been “kicked down the road ” by the career, experienced ,supposedly BRILLIANT A-hole moron politicians we elect.
Their the ones who have put this country in the sorry state it’s in now, & they have NO IDEA how to solve the problems.
Like curious said “term limits “are the solution, if it’s good enough for the position of the Presidency it should be the same for the A-holes in Congress. The Supreme Court too.
Some of these A-hole have been in there for decades & are living & thinking in the PAST. They are fossils & won’t change their way of thinking. They DON’T have the best interests of the American people at heart.
September 9, 2017,5:13 pm
We now have a president who will do what he said he would do if elected. Trump is fighting for the American people, not just the party. We haven’t seen this in a long time. There is no bipartition in Congress anymore. All they care about is getting re-elected. Each party does everything the can to keep the other party from doing something for the people because it might get them more votes, even if it would be the best thing for the American people. They were elected to work for the people, not having the people work for them. We need term limits which we will never get as long as Congress has to approve it. We can get term limits if we vote them out after 2 terms. Some of these people have been in there almost all their lives and have done nothing to help the people. It,’ time we put a stop to this.I hope that will happen in the next election.
September 9, 2017,2:19 pm
If it is something good work with everyone if not don’t. The question is are the Democrats working with Trump now? Is resist over? Trump has always been a NY Progressive!
September 9, 2017,1:30 pm
I’d much rather see him get what is necessary with the help of the Repubs, but obviously the establishment isn’t going to do anything to help. If it takes working with the Dems, so be it. But get Ivanka out of the picture and dump Kushner.
September 9, 2017,12:25 pm
Must work under the basic principles and pre-election promises!.
September 9, 2017,8:57 am
Donaldus Magnus-leader and promise keeper!
McCainus Anus- piece of shit!
September 9, 2017,4:26 am
I despise the RINO GOP almost as much as I do the entire leftist spectrum, but Trump must stick to his guns and cleaning of the swamp, not become part of it!
September 9, 2017,2:51 am
Why not? He won’t get ANYTHING accomplished if he tries to stick with the GOP. Too many of them don’t like him because they want to stay in office and rake in the bucks with special interest paying them to pull through for them. And then you have 6 GOP of which Bush, Fiorina, McConnell, Ryan and of course McCain who are being paid by Hillary through her Foundation Fund to NEVER back Trump in ANYTHING he tries to do. SO, he should work with the Left but never back away from things he has promised he would accomplish.
September 9, 2017,12:15 am
Its damn sure the GOP isn’t working with him, remember “politics make strange bed fellows”. The GOP just wants to play games and try to get Trump to beg for help. They still don’t get him obviously, he doesn’t beg or play.
September 8, 2017,11:37 pm
President Trump most DEFINETLY should work with ALL members in Congress willing to do what needs to be done for the food of we, the people. The DO Nothing RINO’s in Congress have shown themselves to be worthless or incompetent. Extremely disappointed in ALL these so called Republicans and RINO’S..
September 8, 2017,11:09 pm
President Trump is the President of all the people of this great Country, the Democrats were legally elected by the people of their districts just as President Trump was legally elected by the people of this Nation.
They all including the President took an oath of office to uphold the Constitution of this great Nation. So, they all have a duty to work together to make this Country great again. The sad thing about this whole mess in Washinton DC is the Republicans and Democrats in the Congress and the Senate have been there too long and they need to be voted out and a new group brought on board that has the best the interest of this Nation at heart whether they are Democrats, Republicans or Independents.
September 8, 2017,10:33 pm
Most definitely if the feckless, do-nothing Repugnants will dig their heels in the ground and kick against the pricks, then, a pragmatic businessman must do whatever is necessary to accomplish his agenda as mandated to him by the true American people who elected him. Go, President Trump! You are becoming the greatest POTUS in American history!
September 8, 2017,10:22 pm
This is Trump- Donaldus Magnus- if the useless senate republicans- McCainus Anus- are going to do their usual spineless bullshit- Trump will just go somewhere else.
September 8, 2017,7:42 pm
Trump is not a politician republican or democrat.He ran on republican ticket because third party ticket would have lost..I’m tired of do nothing politicAl lies ..
September 8, 2017,7:26 pm
With Chuck and Nancy, president Trump get rid of the dent ceiling limit it makes no sense
September 8, 2017,7:20 pm
GIVE US? GIVE US? GIVE US THE WHITE HOUSE AND WE WILL! (DO NOTHING)TRUTH TOLD!
September 8, 2017,7:07 pm
Go Donald Trump and give the middle finget to the swamp creatures fromm both sides in the washington DC shit hole.
September 8, 2017,6:10 pm
Bill is a dumb-ass communist, hidden in the weeds.
September 8, 2017,5:07 pm
Watch the Republican’s start cooperating now. Trump has the right idea. Democrats and Republicans, should have been working together, for the American tax payers anyway. Up until now, both parties, have been only looking out for each other’s political issues. They have only been screwing us.
September 8, 2017,5:03 pm
Only as far as you can screw them on the next deal the Establishment on our side is just an democrat Trojan horse to conservative republicrats. That have been there to pretend to be part of the conservative faction and to mislead, the rest. democrats vote in a block and conservatives have defectors, about 10 to 12 that should not be in the party. Get rid of them. We need more “Real” republican Conservative Congressmen and Senators, Fast !
September 8, 2017,5:03 pm
Trump was elected president, not head elephant.
If he listens to the Democrats he might even learn how things work. If his working with the Democrats upsets his base of white Christians, so much the better.
September 8, 2017,4:40 pm
Make deals when it is good for all Americans
September 8, 2017,4:38 pm
Just make sure you hold the trick card. Because if they do u will not be working andthey will take everything you have. Got to know when to hold and and when too walk away
September 8, 2017,4:29 pm
September 8, 2017,4:22 pm
Maybe the republicans will start to work together.
September 8, 2017,4:20 pm
Those clowns had their opportunity to do something for America for 8 years with Obama. They have done nothing for U.S. citizens. They are looking for attention now because they do not want President Trump to succeed.
September 8, 2017,3:59 pm
ONLY IF IT TRULY MAKES AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!! OTHERWISE ABSOLUTELY POSITIVELY UNEQUIVOCALLY WITHOUT QUESTION NO!!
September 8, 2017,3:56 pm
Evidently repubs can’t get nothing done so someone has too, besides, that’s how government is supposed to work.
September 8, 2017,3:52 pm
you can not trust demooocrats there big crooks
September 8, 2017,3:51 pm
Ever since he took America by storm in the 2016 election, Pres. Trump has attracted controversy and attention in equal measure. Now conservative readers can go behind the scenes of his White House and his winning campaign — check out our CBC Reading Roundup to find out more!
“Within the first eleven months, we canceled or delayed over 1,500 planned regulatory actions, more than any previous president. Instead of eliminating two old regulations for every one new regulation, we have eliminated 22! We aimed for 2 for 1, and in 2017, we hit 22-1.”
“I promised we would pass a massive tax cut for the everyday, working American families who are the backbone and the heartbeat of our country…. We want to give you, the American people, a giant tax cut for Christmas. And when I say giant, I mean giant.”
