People made their choice. He gave promised them what he knew they wanted.

So, after all, he is not so lobotomized and random as many seem to wish to present him here.
Fixed that for you.

Will he keep his promises?
Check here

So far he is looking good!

Such as?
Typical hillary supporter, cannot admit that hillary lost...and blames everything and everyone except for hillary herself....

NOTE: just to make it clear, musicChick is giving you the reason Trump won and Hillary lost... so stop blaming "uneducation" and "racism" and "misogeny" and "Comey" and "Islamophobia" and "Russia"......... JUST WOMEN THE FCK UP and blame hillary for it.

@marton, Trump was able to give the masses what they wanted, Hillary was not(during the campaign)----- and since we are in the topic of charities, and we already talked about the double standards of the left... why are you only linking dirt to Trumps charity? I believe the Clinton foundation is way more interesting......

Which money is dirtier: Russian money or Saudi money?(not that Trump took money from the russians, but lets assume he did for arguments sake..... which of the two sources is dirtier?).

Whatever you believe, the Trump foundation has admitted breaching IRS regulations and is being investigated by the New York State prosecutors.

I an certainly not going to link to any vague and dubious rumours about the Clinton Foundation without any facts.
There are libel and defamation laws here _

It was a simple enough question. Seems the answer is the tricky bit.

What if it were a Trump supporter asking the same? Would they suddenly be labelled a Clinton supporter? Or would they have a quiet word uttered into their ear to remind them not to question the Dear Leader?

Again, it's a fair enough question. If people want to jump on the defensive and make a big song and dance about the answer, that kind of says all we need to know, wouldn't you say..?

I know you weren't asking me, but I'll volunteer my personal opinion anyway: both can be considered dirty (depending on how you define "dirty"). I am not a fan of the Clinton foundation taking money from Saudi Arabia, a country that suppresses the rights of many - assuming this is true and not just an allegation. I am not a fan of certain dictators stashing their assets in certain alpine countries in Europe either, btw.

However, how is all the above relevant now? Clue: not at all. The elections are over, President Trump won and he is the Commander in Chief. The track record, and the actions of the President of the United States (Trump) are vastly more impactful, and potentially damaging, than the actions of private citizens (among which Clinton). I care about who he is now as President, and what he is accomplishing (or not).

President Trump is being INVESTIGATED BY THE FBI for his ties with Russia, spanning from his political campaign, to his businesses, to his personal investments. He is not guilty until proven so, the investigation is ongoing. But the investigation is very real, which in itself, is quite discomforting.

I have no idea what dirty money is, please explain?

So far as I know both Saudi and Russia earn most of their money selling oil and gas.

Back on topic?

It seems more dirt on the Trump team's dealings with the Russians is floating to the surface. This time it is Manafort, the former campaign chairman.

"Inside Paul Manafort's secret plan to 'greatly benefit the Putin Government'"

Link: http://www.businessinsider.com/ap-ma...ernment-2017-3
Manafort now owns an apartment in Trump Tower in New York City.

So he can have nice chats with the Trump family in the lift without fear of being recorded.

Looks like it isnt just Hawaii that have had enough of his crap:

Maryland have joined this party too.

Im curious, i wonder how much time, money, and energy has been spent in fighting the judiciary on this? A good use of resources, by the worlds best businessman, im sure
Justice Dept seem to be taking a leisurely approach, they filed an appeal about Maryland decision but not an emergency one!
The Appeal Court has asked for written submissions to be completed by end of May so the hearing will likely not be before mid year.
So much for Trump's claim that the ban is needed urgently?

It seems obvious that she meant that Trump was talking unfiltered about topics that the voters wanted to hear about with the same tone,passion,and honesty that they wanted to hear it.

Are you still playing dumb? Just do not go to one of those BLM riots to support them... because if you are white you gonna get a whole lot of whoopass.

It is not a fair enough question, stop pretending that you are sincere, it is oozing with snobbery.

That famously lefty Wall Street Journal has some doubts about the POTUS talking unfiltered too. Behind a paywall but you can see enough anyway.

https://www.wsj.com/articles/a-presi...ity-1490138920

Behind the wall

"Yet the president clings to his assertion like a drunk to an empty gin bottle, rolling out his press spokesman to make more dubious claims."

The editorial board concluded: "If he doesn't show more respect for the truth, most Americans may conclude he's a fake president."

Oh no, I (for one) do understand. However, I don't believe he is the solution. Probably neither Hillary, but that's another story.

WSJ were correct about Pewdiepie so you agree with their Trump comment.
