  1. Trump will never admit to Russian interference simply because it would cast a doubt on the legitimacy of his election.

  7. The left screamed when Trump called NK leader little rocket man…but calls Trump treasonous for not publicly embarrassing the leader of the 2nd biggest nuclear power in the world. The Left/media is never happy no matter what Trump does.

  11. This Rand Paul is a definitely a Pro-Trump in words and action, never failing to protect the guy. Funny enough, he is one of those that still focuses on how it all started and who started those, trying to deflect from what is now know to be fact, discovered by Mueller and Rosenstein, two Republicans. Talk about partisan… Oh, by the way, about the SCOTUS nominee… forget what he is saying. He is lying so that Democrats think they can count with his vote. Read his actions in the past: he will vote yes.

  12. I want to know what other countries were interfering with the elections. Money flowing in from other countries and think tanks funded by foreign countries. Citizen United has done more harm than anything and lets not forget Cambridge Analytica.

  13. We need Nancy Pelosi , Senator Pocahontas, Maxine Waters, or Stormy Daniels as the DNC presidential candidate in 2020. Contact your DNC leadership now.
    Illegal immigrants, especially of the serial variety, are peace loving individuals just like you and me.(ex. MS-13). In fact, the media and the DNC say that illegals are, in many ways, better members of American society than many Americans themselves. There has to me a mistake here. I’ve been told illegals pay their taxes and stimulate the economy by spending their hard earned wages in the local communities in which they reside. CNN, MSNBC, SALON, NPR, Huffington Post, Young Turks, state that the legal Americans who commit a preponderance of the violent crime in America, not the hard working and virtuous illegals.

  26. For anyone opposed to Pres. Trump, here are the most important words to live by: 06:50 "Extremism in reacting to the President's mistakes creates opportunities for this President, and he is very smart about taking them."

  27. trump is certainly hiding something just as he's hiding his tax returns. The public it appears could care less about these things and he knows it. But what the public would care about is uncontroversial evidence attesting to trump's proclivities for salacious sex in full view. Doubtless this is what Putin has on trump. It's a KBG gimmick going way back, and trump is certainly naive enough to be caught up in it. .

    Why was the entire trip an embarrassing failure? Trump cant Find the Truth, never mind use it… The man cannot complete a non-condescending sentence, nevermind eradicate that type of cheapshot, adolescent bullying, verbally vain behavior from the simplistic composite of his existence. Thats when Engaging our Allies, of course. This president's ego reeks of neurosis, is driven by a toddler-like impulsiveness, directed by an immoral compass, who only surrounds himself with greed fed kissass lackeys. EU, CANADA, MEXICO – BAD….. MURDERING DICTATORS – GOOD… umm Sanity please?
    The man is a criminal abomination. IMPEACH!

  31. Of course trump is ignoring the raw evidence of russian meddling. He is brazenly counting on a repeat performance by the russians to reaffirm his hold on power in the 2018 and 2020 elections. The Helsinki summit coupled with the new supreme court justice appointment will embolden his efforts to shut down the Mueller investigation. A shift to a truly authoritative regime in the WH is imminent, no question.

  32. Well, what “Americans” believe will be demonstrated at the next election; presuming there ‘actually’ is any integrity to our election process. Remember Republicans are only 25% of our voting bodyand that has been decreasing since 2004.

  40. You Americans are simply too stupid to realize that, by your short-sighted attempts to de-legitimize Trump by both slandering Russia and Putin, and suggesting that your own president secretly works for them, you are digging yourself into a hole that will leave you with the only recourse in nuclear war with Russia, and then you, stupid as you are, will probably blame Trump for causing it.

  41. Rand Paul you are complicit and aiding in the demise of America as a world power. You better believe we now will be tested and questioned around the world an information/intel from our allies will be withheld. Thanks for possibly hurting our troops on the ground since you think it’s all about hurting one person

  42. Yeah rand Paul you’d sell your own grandmother to the russians

  43. Good examples of treasonous propaganda on this comments page by trolls and assorted traitors. Can they get any more stupid and vile? This is why Trump loves his uneducated and ignorant cultists and why we must regain the Senate and House in November- are you registered to vote these scumbags out?

  45. We're not fooled by libtards and neocons running around screaming treason, like their hair is on fire. This was a standard meeting between two leaders, period … end of story.

  46. Fake or not its all bad for him. He's gonna deny the C. I. A Freedom of speech and harassment shield should not apply. Balance immunity. We are all created equal under the Law. Created equal by God. Thank God for the Constitution. Who cares if Britain colors are bleeding on our American flag. It looks beautiful with those stripes and stars. It looks apparent someone died so I can be free. Defender of our Military said something our children doctors lawyers contractors unions business owners industrial blue collars and white collars shouldnt hear. Why not escalate to rights for second chance. Master degree citizens take to honor how far these people have come how far Americans have consent to empower a Government conducted by the People to allow Congress and Representatives to cntrol and make Laws. Mr. Trump interpretation of trust move forward with these laws and one thing we ask respect the American Revolution War. We live and die from laws. Its worst when our enemy controls our buttons. The Orange finally just got peeled!… This fruit is bad. I support U. S. C. I. A. If there good to me I'm good to them. I pay my taxes. I deserve neither liberty or freedom if we think paying for security and giving up liberty is justice try being dictated by prudence not Putin.

  47. There are no facts in evidence that the Russian government hacked the DNC. In fact there is solid evidence that the data sent to wikileaks could not have been transferred via a hack, and that the data was transferred internally (to a portable drive). The only actual evidence that the Russians did anything are that they did facebook ads that targeted both sides. On the other hand, the US government regularly interferes in foreign elections, including in Russia, France, Israel, and a dozen of other countries.
