    Trump is winning for all of us. What he has done listed.

    The Dem Party has done more to harm this country the last 4 years than Russia. They blame Trump for their fit throwing actions. That is total BS. Shameful.

    Trump says stupid things -- that's nothing new. His vocabulary isn't extensive and he uses cliches constantly.

    But, none of that is really important. What's important is what he does to keep Americans safe and up and running. When Trump stopped flights in from China, progressives got incredibly mad and claimed it was racist. When he called the virus the "Chinese virus," they also claimed he was racist -- although it's common to name viruses by where they originate -- and now that he's taking extraordinary steps to stimulate the economy, they're saying it's wrong, not enough, too much, whatever they can say to whine.

    People need someone to blame for their lives, and progressives have formed a cult of sort focused on blaming Trump. For everything.

    So yeah, the behavior is odd to say the least. At a time when we ought to be coming together, the cult cannot drop its constant attacks.

    Time to work together, dude. There will be plenty of time for hatred in the months, years to come. Let's focus on keeping folks healthy now. Okay?

    That list is pure propaganda. A lot of the things on there are minor and pointless exercises that have not had a material impact on slowing the spread of the virus. Most importantly, there are no dates listed and many of the things he’s done in the last few weeks could have been done two months ago when they would have really helped. The biggest thing missing from the list is the fact that he lied about the severity of the virus and the ability of the country to contain it for over a month, when ramping up testing and medical supply capabilities could have materially slowed the virus. He did too little, far too late and you clowns think he’s accomplished something. It’s pathetic.
