This whole obsession with his words and his mean tweets is really lame. And that's why the regular lot hangs out in this thread instead of the Biden thread. This thread gets 10x the interaction than that of the actual current president. The former president has literally no platform anymore.

Shall we dispute these facts:

Putin did nothing like this to the Ukraine during Trump's time
Trump sanctioned the NS2 pipeline early on (which Biden lifted for unknown reasons)

Meanwhile, while you are all obsessed with what an out of power man is saying, the actual president is in one of the most consequential conflicts since the Cuban Missile Crisis and there are serious doubts as to whether he has full control of his faculties. A guy that can be manipulated into escalating into a war with a nuclear power.....

But Trumps silly rhetoric is what is the most pressing issue at the moment
A fairly high percentage of the posts in this thread are yours, dear. Scroll back to see for yourself.

You post something and then when you're called out on it and are proven wrong, you claim it wasn't meant to be taken seriously because the only other alternative is to admit you were wrong. So instead, you try to warp the narrative on it. No wonder you're a Trump supporter. You warp the narrative on anything you can to benefit yourself and you're incapable of admitting when you're wrong. Rest assured, however, that many of us here do not take you seriously.

You bitch about Biden in a Trump thread and then simultaneously accuse others of bitching about Trump more than talking about Biden. I'm so sorry that every conversation in this forum isn't in agreement with your hatred of Biden and love of Trump and doesn't revolve around what you want each conversation to be about. This thread is about Trump. If you don't like that fact, then maybe you should consider staying out of it.

It was hard to find the context that he was speaking with. Every article just used the headline words like you did. It’s almost like we have our own Pravda.

It seems he was speaking about Putin’s choice of how to invade. (making it seem like an invite from the separatists) It’s an opinion and time will tell if Putin gets away with it and what the consequences will be. Trump has always spoken with extreme superlative usage so it should not be all that shocking
Pathetic excuse for Trump, here is a more considered view from a senior GOP politician.

"Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Tuesday contradicted Trump’s recent praise of Putin as “smart” and “savvy” by declaring that he views the Russian president as a “ruthless thug.”

Asked about Trump’s comments, McConnell said: “What President Putin did as a ruthless thug is just invade — invaded another sovereign country and killed thousands of innocent people.”

“That’s what President Putin did,” he emphasized. "

Are you a happy Truth Social user now or still on the wait list?

Today Truth Social finds itself far down the Apple list of popular downloads at 116, right between the app for DoorDash drivers and a game in which a genie guesses internet celebrities.

It is a late entry into a crowded social media niche market which does not help.

Trump, whose presence is a key differentiator between Truth Social and other right-wing platforms, has still only posted on the platform once.

Re: All about Trump and 2024

Since returning to private life, Trump has not restored his 30-year-old Boeing 757-200 private jet to be airworthy.

As President, it was no longer needed by Trump and was left parked up at Stewart International Airport (SWF), 60 miles from Manhattan with one missing engine.

Usually, for long storage, aircraft are stored in the desert where they are warm and dry and not in locations where they are exposed to severe weather. The costs to restore the 757 are not known but likely many millions.

Trump has been relying on borrowing aircraft from friends and supporters to make his trips.

Last Saturday Trump was in a borrowed Dassault Falcon 900 returning from giving a speech at an RNC retreat, that had a failure in one of its two engines and had to return to Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport for an emergency landing.

Probably safest would be to fly with commercial airlines like everybody else.

He claims to be a billionaire so why does he not spend his own money?

"Former President Trump is asking his supporters to help fund his new "Trump Force One" private plane just days after a jet flying him to Mar-a-Lago made an emergency landing when one of its engines failed.

Trump, through his Save America PAC, sent his supporters an email titled "Update Trump Force One" in which he said that "my team is building a BRAND NEW Trump Force One."

He added that the construction of this plane has been under wraps and said "I can't wait to unveil it for everyone to see.""

I doubt anyone gullible enough to donate for "Trump Force One" will ever see it; it is just a money collecting scam.

I probably phrased it poorly, I meant that so little detail is given about his new plane that I do not believe it will ever be built - just another scam.

Re: All about Trump and 2024

For Trump, loyalty is a one way street.

Former President Trump has pulled his endorsement of Rep. Mo Brooks in this year's Alabama Senate primary, slamming the Republican as "woke" and disloyal to him for doubting his claims about the 2020 presidential election.

Among President Donald Trump’s many claims to power and influence is that he’s the endorser in chief. After the Trump-backed political neophyte Tommy Tuberville knocked Jeff Sessions out of the Senate race in Alabama and the president’s former physician Ronny Jackson won a Texas House runoff, Trump crowed about it on Twitter: “88 and 2 (really 1) in ENDORSEMENTS this election cycle, and @FoxNews was critical. Has anyone ever done so well? I doubt it!”

Mo Brooks is not the only one endorsed by Trump who is not showing up well in the polls plus raising much less campaign money than their rivals.

So will we see a whole series of "unendorsements"?

Notice tightwad Trump who is claimed to be sitting on at least $100 million of campaign donations has yet to give one cent of these to help the candidates he claims to support.

It is surreal that his reason is "doubting his [fraud] claims about the 2020 presidential election.
What has happened to the US that such claims that have not one shred of evidence, have failed in over 60 court cases and have been denied by Trump's own DOJ Attorney Generals has anyone taking them seriously.

That is not what the article you linked to actually says, quote; "Trump has more money in the bank than the RNC & DNC" - as I mentioned this is the result when, unlike the RNC & DNC, you do not spend any of your campaign money on campaigning.

"Save America." The promise of salvation in exchange for your money. Trump was President for four years. What exactly did he save America from?

Maybe Trump will use the money to pay his legal fees or pay off some of his $400+ million debt.

Fun fact: One thing con artists are good at is conning people.
