He has achieved more in one year than Obama did in 8 and the US economy is really starting to turn around under Trump's leadership. Yes, he says stupid things but he is battling the entire mainstream media as well as the Democrats and there is so much collusion and corruption with these two groups. They all mock what he says then, in the end, it turns out to be true!

First smart thing she ever said. On paper he has had a very succefull first year. But this also explains why Heather is so anti jacinda after four months in Parlimant.

If she is correct in saying that Trump has pleased his supporters who, after all, won the election, that is every reason for decent people to stay away from that ****hole of a country.

Disappointing that here we are at the start of 2018. We have an article composed by a supposedly "respected" figure in mainstream NZ media, that still supports the myth of trickle down economics.

Tell you what, Heather: I'm trying hard to get NZ citizenship. Since you love the Orange Shitler so much, I'll trade you citizenship. How 'bout that?

There are always two sides to a story. The only people unhappy with President Trump are the Democrats that are still on meds trying to cope with the disappointment Clinton got caught out being a liar and one of the most investigsted politicians in the USA. Now they are pinning their hopes on Oprah. It's laughable.
