Trump was voted into the White House because that’s where American wanted him. Now the President America voted for is in office, and doing his job and there are still people thinking they can trash him and won’t take a hit for it?
Exactly how do they think they can trash the President that AMERICA voted for and not have anything to answer for? There are consequences for every action whether it’s good or bad…
I don’t think they are going to enjoy the consequence that comes with being stupid.
The Dow Jones industrial average fell around 120 points after sliding more than 223.39 points, dropping below 20,000, with Goldman Sachs contributing the most losses. Most of the companies who criticized Trump’s temporary travel ban on the 7 nations Obama’s DHS identified as terror hotbed nations lost money in the stock market today. Apparently keeping our country safe takes a back seat to these companies, unless of course, we see another major terror attack in America by an unvetted refugee, then they’ll all be lining up behind Trump and complaining he didn’t do enough…

There’s more…much more, click here to see it.
It truly amazes me how people who have been obviously really successful in life and who would otherwise be considered wise and knowing…are actually incapable of seeing the truth.
Or even using facts and truth to back their claims…
Go ahead Karma have your way with them.
