    Not a political issue at all. Plain old Racism. It's harder to be a proud American than 8 months ago.

    I had to remove the entire article because we can't post entire articles on the site, but I'll provide a link for it and also put the first couple short paragraphs here for members to read.

    Bit by bit, Trump methodically undoing Obama policies

    "Amid the turmoil over staff shake-ups, blocked travel bans and the Russia cloud hanging overhead, President Donald Trump is steadily plugging away at a major piece of his agenda: Undoing Obama.

    From abortion to energy to climate change and personal investments, Trump is keeping his promises in methodically overturning regulations and policies adopted when Barack Obama was president.

    It hasn't all been smooth sailing." - Darlene Superville, Associated Press

    My opinion on this is what the hell did people expect when they decided to vote for Donald? Many of President Obama's accomplishments were through Executive Orders and Donald has every right in the world to undo them all.

    That's why I was so frustrated when I heard from supposed Democrats say Secretary Clinton and Donald were the same. It's hard to get the fact that a President has a hell of a lot of power to rule through Executive Actions through to people who have convinced themselves that it doesn't matter who we vote for.

    The same goes for Neil Gorsuch. I wonder how Democrats who sat on their ass in November will feel once Gorsuch and the other four conservatives on the Supreme Court completely rewrite American law from the bench. I hope that protest vote for Jill Stein was worth it for them once the Supreme Court takes away their rights while at the same time dramatically expanding the rights of multinational corporations.

    I don't think Trump is any more racist than the average person. I think everyone has some racist feeling\opinions, and I consider Trump being in the center with normal people. Trump may hate a black man who's kicked his ass just slightly more than a white man who has kicked his ass.

    Deep down Trump does not like Obama (racist or not), and Trump wants to tear down Obama's presidency anyway he can, which includes using dirty politics. For however long Trump remains in office, he will be obsessed with finding or manufacturing ways to totally discredit Obama. Trump truly believes Obama was born outside of US, so it's easy to imagine Trump telling his staff to do everything they can to find evidence that Obama faked his birth certificate. We know it's not possible to find something that never existed (aka "Nothing unreal exists"), but Trump surrounds himself with people who are likely to mysteriously come up with something that looks 99.99% real, thus Trump will demand a full blown investigation to everything Obama based on false evidence.

    From the 1000 foot level. What trump is doing akin to when one dictator overthrows a third world country, he rewrites history and prosecutes the previous leader for crimes that never occurred. Trump is simply doing it within the boundaries of our culture.

    OK , Obama was a junior senator and before that a community organizer who had charisma and charm but he was also inexperienced, and had no stomach for dealing with adversary's such as Russia,China etc Vladimir Putin Schooled him among others, his trade deals and stifling the economy and pouring out our country's wealth to other country's at an alarming rate turned a blind eye to immigration and opened the gates to everyone, Look at Europe! Is that what you want? it is not racist to want to protect yourself or your family from Immigrants that want to come here from the middle east , these people are smart ruthless and they are survivors and are not to be taken lightly, look at their history what they have done to places that they have taken over is this what you want,actually read up on them from the days of the crusades to present day it is the same story its the truth! or are you going to whine and say some stupid remarks about Xenophobia or something uninformed and scream and cry, we need to work together have dialog instead of stifling other peoples opinion's , and all this micro aggression talk I mean what the hell is that? sorry for the rant just my opinion....

    He was a State Senator for eight years, as well...

    That's a hell of a lot more experience than inheriting money from daddy and then using that money to build a bunch of hotels with his name on it.

    Donald would be richer today if he just invested the money his daddy gave him in index funds instead having this insatiable desire to plaster his name on things. He would never admit that, but the awesome things about real - not alternative - facts is that they are irrefutable.

    At least Obama didn't collude with Putin to steal a Presidential election...

    The cognitive dissonance of the Republican Party is truly astounding. Obama inherited an economy in complete and absolute free fall thanks to eight years of tax cuts for the rich and fighting endless wars on the credit card. He inherited a complete and total collapse of the United States banking system. And he inherited two failed wars that were draining our nations moral and killing an untold number of human beings in far off lands. Yet you want to blame Obama for all of your problems?

    Oh, and illegal immigration was a net zero during much of Obama's Presidency. I understand that you Donald supporters love alternative facts, but most people with a functioning brain understand that alternative facts is just another word for falsehood.

    Europe is a continent, not a country. It consists of 44 countries. Some are doing great; others not so much.

    Yea, we really need to keep a watchful eye on women and children fleeing unimaginable violence due in large part to W's pointless wars of aggression.

    Are you honestly afraid of a woman and children fleeing genocide? Seriously man. That's just sad.

    Tired of the B.S. Wrote: look at their history what they have done to places that they have taken over is this what you want,actually read up on them from the days of the crusades to present day it is the same story its the truth!

    You really don't seem to have a firm grasp on history or the truth. Remember - alternative facts are not real facts.

    You bring up the crusades, yet you completely leave out the fact that the crusades were conducted by the Roman Catholic Church in an attempt to steal Muslim land. They slaughtered, raped, and tortured an untold number of innocent people all in the name of the Christian God.

    That's the truth!

    I think you're a xenophobe because your statements are xenophobic. This country is a nation of immigrants (unless you are a decedent of the native people or a slave who was brought here against their will).

    You have a right to your own opinions, but not your own facts.

    Well said Jared.

    Tonight the evening news on CBS started with news about civilians in Syria suffering from what seemed to be chemical weapons. Many dead and injured. They gave the warning that the footage was graphic. Was it ever. No injuries but so many gagging as medic type persons hosed them down trying to help. They suggested it was the Syrian leadership as they can operate safely with Russian forces beating down opposition. It was reported how president Obama was against the current regime and you could find various groups to be angry with..... President Trump clarified it all. Today's attacks are because Pres. Obama was so weak. This insane potus should be held to far more judgemental standards. He is allowing atrocities to happen without a proper condemnation. Blame the Democratic black guy.... We have sunk to a pathetic place and a huge percentage of citizens don't seem to demand anything more.

    I fact checked this, and it is true. If Trump had done nothing more than a basic conservative investment with the money he got from his father he would be richer now. I can give him some slack as a private person because where is the fun in just putting money in a standard\safe retirement fund and live off the interest.

    However, it does show that as a businessman, he is not somebody special as he likes to claim to be. According to him, he is best of the best, and it simply time that makes a difference between him and anyone who has done better, or they cheated, lied, or committed crimes (according to him).

    Tired of the B.S. - It's only fitting that you have BS in your name because that's all these right wing bigoted, xenophobics understand. They are incapable of doing any research on their own. If it isn't spoon fed to them by Faux News, Brightfart, Nonewsmax they ignore it. They are only interested in fake news that re-inforces their preconceived version of the "truth". History is full of these fools who are more than willing to accept and believe anything, no matter how ridiculous, if it supports their misunderstanding of facts.

    There is nothing new in the world when it comes to crooked, self-serving, authoritarians. The Roman Empire and all religions were/are built on them, their supporters were/are as bad, if not worse, as today's Trumpie. Everything is about themselves and how "everyone" is taking from "them". Poor Little Conservatives. Thry can only win and get ahead by Lying and cheating and they are extremely good and very successful at it.

    P.R. but yeah, everything like this comes to an end; just read history. My prediction is just like with the Romanovs, that the whole "family" will be exterminated one way or the other; even others on TV hinted to that.
