  1. Andrew call HUMAN CENTER CAPITALISM Andrew Yang is focusing on solving 78% Americans living pay check to pay check UBI $ 1000 a month tax on AI , Data Robots machine driverless truck & 10% value Add tax and more. Age 18 to till u died is game changer for many Americans/family. Click here over 100 policy.

  2. These DemoRats been trying since day one, how sad they go against America and side with Iranians, he terminated a terrorist, when Omama killed bin Ladin, to look good then paid millions to keep them happy, Trump is one of the realist president and exposed the lies demos been feeding America for years, Trump has done more for America then any other president, and now he sided with China his way tho which is the honest way, therefore Trump will be exonerated and win 2020, thank to these rats!!!!!

  3. The most dangerous weapon no one can overcome or defeat is God's wrath. So in light of the Ukraine new investigation, Trump will be removed from office and his lawyers will spend time in prison. People tend to forget God plays his role in everything and the power of prayers will play a role in Trump's future as president. What goes around will absolutely come back around.

  4. “Presidents have absolutely gone against the will of Congress. Congress hasn't declared a war since December 7, 1941, and yet we've been at war ever since with somebody or other in order to justify the war machine. Now we have alienated almost the entire earth”
    ― Gore Vidal

  5. Obama directed the FBI to fabricate evidence and spy on Trump with a FISA warrant. Where is Obama's impeachment?

    Biden took a $900k bribe from burisma funneled through seneca law firm. Where is Bidens impeachment?

  6. The whole charge of Withholding Aid Money is so easily proved nonsense" I like using the hypothetical example of FDR waking up on Dec 7, 1941 and hearing about the attack and then while sitting in the Oval Office he sees an Aid Check to some Japan program, that like Ukraine Aid was signed into law by Congress. Who would dare charge FDR if he had stopped the millions dollars check from being hand delivered to the Japanese Embassy that day? Our Constitution was not created perfect, we have added amendments since 1776 and will probably continue to add more. AND Obama showed us that the 'interpretation's of our laws can be convoluted and expanded when he defied over 200 Years of laws that only allowed man & woman to marry. Trump claims he had info of corruption in Ukraine and that it was related to the Biden family . He did right in refusing to send the check until the issue was/is resolved. But more important was he allowed the check to be sent so the charge is frivolous to say the least.

  7. President Nixon was impeached for ending the Democrats' glorious Vietnam crusade. With the Mueller report debacle, 5 IG reports on Democrat corruption why do Democrats want to keep leading with their chin by impeaching Trump.
