    negotiating with Trump is like playing chess with a pigeon. The pigeon knocks over all the pieces, craps on the board, then struts around like it won the game.

    This President is funny you have to admit he hilarious. I'm sure landlords don't mind if they don't pay their rent. I'm telling my landlord this month sorry I can't pay my rent because trump said I don't have too

    Shouldn’t the government stop taxing us if there’s a government shut down?

    If i am forced to work for the government for free, is that not effectively a 100% tax
    So Trumps tax plan is now a 💯% tax on the middle class with huge tax breaks for the rich!?!?! Great job 👍 republicans you stand for nothing!

    Hey... if federal workers aren’t getting payed, who’s patrolling the boarder? Sorry to any Trump supporters, but this is what happens when you put a child in office and they don’t get their way.
    (Edit) I realize that some people are still patrolling, but even those loyal to trump are eventually going to quit because they are not being payed.

    This is what happens when you vote someone who is NOT experienced in politics; NOT experienced in thinking about ALL Americans, not just the 2%; and NOT fully engaged in the heart & soul of what made America already great. #NotMyPresident

    Trump is officially insane. I need my money. Can't work for free for a mad man hell bent on helping Russia and destroy America in the process. Just so he can make money. He's greedy. Plain and simple.

    I formally announce my secession from the Union, I am also offering generous tax credits and am currently dividing up the majority of my acreage for homesteading.

    Trump is now saying that Mexico is paying for it indirectly because of the new NAFTA deal but I have yet to hear of any corporations announcing that they're shutting down their Mexican manufacturing facilities and moving them to the U.S. A reporter asked him to give the specifics of how the new NAFTA deal would pay for the wall and Trumpty Dumpty had no answer other than to bloviate, as usual.
