While the lying corrupt media slams you at every turn, your performance has made your supporters very loyal to you.
No president has worked as hard as you have.
You are making past presidents look very lame.
The Islamic Muslim Obummer left you with a real mess.
Congress people are destroying themselves by resisting you.
I consider you the first real president since John F Kennedy.
I have no use for Ronald Reagan when he broke the backs of labor unions.
Labor unions are the reason we have (or had) a middle class, which are the driving force behind the economy.
After adjusting for inflation the middle class has not had a raise in wages for decades.

Thanks for your hard work

I don't know who reads these posts, that is in a position to actually help me. I loved Trump long before he ran for president. I actually went back to college to major in business because of him. No matter what I will be loyal until the end. So, here is my major problem. I recently was involved in a terrible Domestic violence situation, that has left me broken beyond belief and I need to get help for. However, in the state of Arizona to go anywhere that can actually help me to get real help depends only on having private health insurance. I don't have the funds to pay out the crazy prices to get a private health plan, so I could get help for myself. So, Mr. President if there is any way you could personally help me, I would forever be indebted to you. I'm just a New Jersey girl living in an Arizona who needs the help of her president now more than ever!!

A staunch Trump supporter, I am disappointed that Pres. Trump has not used his pen to take the congress off their made-up health care and put them all on Obama Care. I don't think they have any idea of what this health care mess is doing to our middle class.

I have voted in Indiana all my life (70 yrs old now) and NEVER have I seen a candidate so vulnerable as is Joe Donnely. All the President has to do is have one HUGE rally in Ind...just like he did the shrewd thing in the Primary by inviting Bobby Knight) which I fought hard for your people to do.

I would like to let the you know that there are many supporters that have not voiced their support. Most are in rural communities like the one I grew up in. They are not the type of people that grandstand for publicity. Please keep these folks in mind as you serve our great country. I personally would like to thank you for all you have already done and support you to the fullest. Stay strong on your beliefs and true to your destiny because I believe what ever happens it was meant to be. Our lives are guided by strength that man will never understand and you are a guiding light for America.

I am commenting from far away. If I understand this correctly, you have a White Supremacist Group and for the sake of clarification, a Non-White Supremacist Group. The Non-White Supremacists are tearing down the White Supremacists' historic statues and symbols, like the statue of the world-famous General Lee that has been in Charlottesville for over 100 years. The White Supremacists have not destroyed statues of the Non-White Supremacists so far. I understand further that the White Supremacists applied and got a permit to march in protest against the removal of their beloved statue, and the Non-White Supremacists confronted them without a permit from the City to do so with weapons. If my premise is right, then what strikes me most grievously in this are two things:

1. The total lack of democracy in a decision that seems to be so important to people. A couple of city Councillors decided to remove a statue of the people without consulting the people? Why did the mayor of Charlottesville (if the statue was a municipal statue), or whoever had jurisdiction over the statue, not simply have a vote when he saw that this decision would be highly controversial? Then the majority vote would have decided the issue and the minority would simply have had to go along with it. Remember that democracy is defined as the greatest possible good for the greatest possible number of people. The greatest possible good for the fewest possible people is the definition of tyranny.

2. Secondly, WHY did the police allow the illegal Non-White Supremacists march to go ahead with weapons to confront a legal protest? Why could the City of Charlottesville not have granted them a permit to march the day before or after the White Supremacists were allowed to march? From my vantage point far away from America, the blame for the death of the beautiful young girl and all those who were injured lies squarely on the shoulders of the mayor of the city and his Council.

In that sense, I believe your President is quite right---and very brave to say to the people: The Emperor wears no clothes, when those taken in want him to say that the Emperor does wear the most beautiful clothes. Are we, who are dispassionate observers from afar wrong in this? Is there something we overlook? History has catapulted young America, unfortunately perhaps, into the leadership of the Free World. You have elected a President to lead the USA and the Free World. Support him! Do not give in to hatred by tearing down your statues. That is what the Taliban did because monuments left to us thousands of years ago were not Islamic. Honour your ancestors and your history, even if by today's standards they appear to have been wrong. Everything else seems treason to us. God bless you all over there in America!

Mr Trump, Why not threaten China that if they don't eliminate North Korea's Nukes and missile sites, then USA will arm South Korea with Nukes..............China won't stand for that...........thus it should push the issue with N. Korea.

Judicial Watch Item:

Judicial Watch: 'Special Counsel Mueller's Investigation is Out of Control,' DOJ 'Should Shut It Down'

( – Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russia’s alleged collusion with the Trump 2016 campaign and the firing of FBI Director James Comey is “out of control” and should be “shut down” by the Department of Justice, said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

On Twitter, July 2, Fitton said, “Special Counsel Muller’s investigation is out of control” and “DOJ should shut it down.”

On July 5, Fitton tweeted, “At least seven of the 15 lawyers Mueller has brought on to the special counsel team have donated to Dem candidates.”

Also, during a July 3 interview on Fox’s Happening Now, Fitton said, “This is the twelfth -- my count is 14 or 15 -- lawyers they have working on this one investigation to investigate what? An employment dispute between [former FBI Director] Comey and the president? Paul Manafort’s filing of a document or General Flynn’s filing of a document?”

“I don’t understand what this investigation is about,” said Fitton.

Mueller, appointed to lead an investigation into the possible coordination between the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 election, has put together a team of 15 lawyers to take on the case.

“In terms of government corruption and constitutionality, there are real concerns with how the office is operating,” Fitton continued. “Too many lawyers searching for a crime that there is no predicate for.”

Fitton also pointed out that in addition to the special counsel’s lack of accountability, Mueller has appointed an alarming number of Democratic donors to his team.

“You have all these Democrat donors,” said Fitton. “Are there any Trump donors on the team that Mr. Mueller has hired?”

“You have this appointment of a special counsel who has no day-to-day supervision from a constitutional officer,” he said. “There is no accountability.”

Fitton also made it clear that he is not against a special counsel, but he believes it must be done constitutionally.

“You might be able to have a special counsel or someone designated to do the work but they have to be answerable in a more direct way to the appointee of the Justice Department, which is subject to Senate confirmation,” Fitton explained.

“I want a constitutional special counsel, and if that means going back and reworking the regulations and getting rid of Mueller, so be it,” said Fitton.
