Requiem I do commend you for your sensitivity towards the Trump supporters in this thread.

But I would like to hear from Elizabeth and the ABondGirl in this thread how they feel about Trump this past week.


By the way you learn history from your teachers and books not from a false monument

For him to call those statues beautiful when he wants to strip our national parks of their beauty is asinine!

Artist.....after this week, I think I used up the last of my sensitivity towards trump supporters. I'll leave it at that, but I'll say my ability to compromise on the subject is pretty much gone.

After seeing that 67% of Republicans approve of the way Trump handled Charlottesville, I'm over trying to meet them halfway.

I agree YD....supporting trump is supporting racism, hate, violence and division. There is absolutely no other way to view it. It's a scary time to be a minority or be different. There is no halfway.

Trump should focus less on the "dishonest fake news" and worry more about running the country.

The only thing I've learned from Trump's presidency is that absolutely nothing matters.

The speech was all about him and how he's a problem solver and how he'll fix everything. He was given a bad hand. I also couldn't get past the bigotry in his speech. How everyone in the army is valued and family. How about the transgendered folk you discriminated against?

Also comical? His comment on when one in the community is hurt, we all are. Ya? Is that the same when a black boy was targeted? Or is that just when a police officer dies?

Don't get me wrong. Both sad. But in his eyes...he'll only comment on the latter. And that's hypocrisy. Tired of it!

Also - his speech was confusing. I couldn't pay attention.
