Omarosa Manigault, Trump Campaign Director of AfricanAmerican Outreach, made a public statement; she said ALL who doubted Trump, ALL Trump's critics and EVERYONE who did not support Trump will "BOW DOWN" after the election (fact check this)! Doesn't seem American, does it?? That's because it is NOT American. It is Totalitarian. It is threatening. It is despicable. Americans DO NOT "BOW DOWN"!! No wonder Trump will only get one Black vote. He's paying her.

The problem is voters are simply not seriously giving any reflection at all for their support of Hillary.

Hillary is a CRIMINAL- An UNIDICTED FELON and probably the single most corrupt and incompetent politician in American history.

Like him or hate him - Trump is COMPETENT and he's on AMERICA'S SIDE. The same simply CAN'T BE SAID FOR HILLARY. WHAT PLANET ARE THESE STUPID, SO-CALLED JOURNALISTS LIVING ON?

It's time for TRUMP!

Trump would be a disaster. He is a loose cannon on steroids. And a habitual liar, with no experience governing.

I understand how blue collar voters feel betrayed. They have been!!! But Trump uses people, look at his business record. It's ugly, in Atlantic City, the way the people were treated who built Trump Tower. Investors were hurt badly. People who were lied to and bought property in his Trump branded developments. Trump University was a sewer of lies! Trump is the disease--not the cure.

Let's look at who the Trump supporters are.

Low information, poor education, the hillbilly state residents, not very clever women and angry old men who failed in life. The ignorant. The dispossessed. The losers of society looking for a bailout from a billionaire fraud who doesn't care in the least about them.

trump is using these people. They're not bright enough to see it. He craves adulation and raucous rallies. He desperately needs attention. Even from the lower classes because that's all he's left with.

Fools led by an idiot.

Many Trump supporters are OK or better people. They weren't born with a silver spoon, and they have been betrayed/used by the Republican Party. They don't trust their party, so they picked Trump . But Trump is using them. They should have voted for Bernie. Sad,

Trump is COMPETENT? Nah! Deadbeat Donnie has filed 6 Chapter 11 Bankruptcies, so far, and Lost $915+ Million in a single year. What's COMPETENT about that? He's a real choker, a financial disaster and a euge fuckup! Dump Trump!

Ultimately Trump succeeded. He learned from his mistakes.

Again, the same can't be said for Hillary. She (along with Obozo and most of the other radical leftist democrats) never learn from her/their mistakes. Instead of learning from them, she doubles down on them...Doubles down on STUPID.

Either failure is the plan with Obozo and Hillary, or they are just about as dumb as a box of rocks. Either way, this is not good for America.

The only thing that Hillary excels at is corruption. She and Bill have made more than 130 million dollars since leaving the white house. There is nothing - NOTHING - they could do legally that is worth that kind of money.

Hillary has sold her office - enriching herself at the direct expense of America and the American people. Innocent Americans have DIED because of Hillary's corruption.

Hillary can't wait to sell her office again - From the oval office. She would be a guaranteed DISASTER as President. She may even end up causing a nuclear war - she is so incompetent.

Hillary is the absolute worst possible choice for President of the United States of America. Hitler and Mao are long dead - So the Democrat party could not have done worse than Hillary.

I tried to present Hillary in a positive light here - The complete truth about her is even worse.

Speaking of paying for votes,,,, have you any idea how much money has been spent on buying the black vote over the last 8 years ? Buying meals, groceries and through programs ? If it were not for the millions of dollars spent on the Black Vote, the numbers would probably be less than half of what it is now. What a strong statement it makes, when a candidate cannot get sufficient votes from a working class, successful group of americans, but rather needs the vote from those who relies on government to thrive. Yes americanwoman, the Obamas and Clinton are notorious for buying their votes and worse yet,,,,,, they are buying their vote with OUR tax dollars. In my opinion this is a Theft. That said, we also know Hillary is paying for her votes also through her Pay to Play programs, not to mention the money she receives from those countries who believe in sodomizing their women. Yeah, Hillary Clinton is really concerned for the welfare of women , children and families, but only as far as it doesn't get in the way of her accepting the contributors money first. Hillary Clintons priorities are ALL about Hillary Clinton first and her family second. Our country is last and least. The Black Community is even a lesser priority for Hillary Clinton. Where is the history and proof of all the great things Hillary has done for Families and the Black Community in the last 30 years ? TV commercials with photo ops do not prove anything.

Whither Trump's minions once the 2016 elections are over? What can the standard bearers of traditional American values and civility offer its former, now bitterly disaffected, majority that might help them integrate successfully with its more diverse 21st century majority? What will to compel them to come back inside from the cold -- of calling for rule by white supremacism and the destruction of government -- by embracing the basic America values of equality and democracy?

Trump promises a dictatorship to favor them, but regardless of election outcome, it will prove to be only another disappointment for them and will only further sour their increasingly bitter grapes. What will happen to them?

There IS no double standard in this instance. NOBODY in the history of American politics has EVER declared that ALL WILL BOW DOWN to any POTUS. Trump's Ms.Manigault is the FIRST presidential election campaign staffer to ever make such a blatantly UNAMERICAN threat. This outrageous statement by Trump campaign is alarming to ALL freedom-loving Americans, whether they be conservative, liberal, white, black, Republican, Democrat or Independent. Americans do not take threats to US lightly, and America will NEVER BOW DOWN to the likes of DonnyDrumpf.

"Ultimately Trump succeeded?" You Trump Cultists are so naive, so poorly-informed and so trusting!

Trump filed his last Chapter 11 Bankruptcy in '09. Each Chapter 11 Bankruptcy can last five years.

Let's do the math. So Trump’s last Chapter 11 was completed in '14. That was 2 years ago, right?

Since Bankruptcy = Failure, Deadbeat Donnie was a confirmed financial failure until at least 2 years ago.

So what part of: "Deadbeat Donnie is not successful," financiallt, etc. Confuses you, Trump Cultist?
