    Trump is Not an idiot, you leftist though oh hoho that’s definitely the straw that cuts off the camels back. Why? He’s doing not only the way you want he went and is going way beyond what they talk about in this video, the thing is the liberal media? Lol well let’s just say you’re being played as fools. The world is flourishing under this leader, not at all like what the liberal media tells you pawns to the wrong side of Everything. Look in the mirror lefty You’re Wrong and you need to know it. Unfortunately nobody tells them hu? Lol we definitely need more conservatives on tv and colleges while putting a ton of conservatives publishers to educate people like they do. Then maybe they’d finally get around to critical thought.

    I would like to see references for those statements. Facts and verified statistics. Otherwise it looks like a pale of vs from a seemingly credible news source.
