President Trump is simply the greatest! Thank you Sir, for all your superior leadership.
We are booming. The President is doing a fantastic job. Hopefully, people will start respecting him, for the person he is, instead of the garbage put out by the press. It’s too bad people are so ignorant to believe everything they read.
How can I get a copy of the official photo of our President. I love this picture.
These photos were taken by the White House, which means they are yours to use. https://www.whitehouse.gov/briefings-statements/white-house-releases-official-portraits-president-donald-j-trump-vice-president-mike-pence/
Does anybody think that, one only one, democrat could come forward and have a kind word for the president who has accomplish so much for economy and business in general? Oh…..no, that would be tantamount to major failure and defeat of their ideology who has gotten them nowhere , which started nine years ago with our do-nothing ex-pres. The way it looks, the dems couldn’t recognize success in anything the president does if you hit them with a baseball bat. But then may be that is exactly what they need to bring them into reality!!!!!
good news ….for a change……but zero record of praise from the Democrats……
What about those crumbs Pelosi? Stand 8 hours for illegals to be put on the Democrat voting roles, but don’t stand for anything that gives LEGAL AMERICANS money inter pockets. Your party is doomed. It is full of crooks, liars, and dumb comedians thinking they are funny all at the expense of true Americans!
This is the President we are happy to have elected. May God bless him with more wisdom and excellent health.
Can’t moderate God.
Great job President Trump!

I think the Tax Reform & Jobs bill will be the ‘gift’ that keeps on giving! I can ‘see’ that the building ‘Blue wave’ [because of Trump’s imperfections & tweets] will ‘break’ on the ‘reef’ of the Tax Reform & Jobs bill!
Well done Mr. President!! You are leading the way to Make Amrrica Great Again!! Thank you for action and not typical political rhetoric.
Well done Mr. President!!! Thank you for leading the way to Make America Great Again!!! Thank you for taking charge and action rather than merely providing the all too typical political rhetoric Americans have constantly been exposed to all too often. Thanks for staying on message and mission!
