    when others were cheering the democrats didn't like this...

    -low black unemployment
    -bonuses for employees
    -2.4 million jobs created
    -American flag
    -In God we trust
    -National anthem
    -fully secure border
    -merit based immigration
    -fighting opioid abuse
    -Jerusalem as capital of Israel

    Democrats dont support any of that, but they do support illegal immigrants.

    That should go well with the midterms when the political ads show them sitting on their hands in protest.

    Standing, waving his little flag, pinking away a tear, and nursing a semi.

    Let's have a go at this......my comments added to the bullet.

    -low black unemployment .
    What's the number ?? 10% ? 20% ? 30% ?
    Actually, I googled that. Dropped from 16.1% in Dec 2009 to 6.8% in Dec 2017.
    80% of that reduction happened during Obama administration.

    -bonuses for employees -
    they never got bonuses before ? I always got nice bonuses in your "socialist" Canada.
    Based on my performance. Not on a politician bribing citizens with their own money

    -2.4 million jobs created
    Most of them were probably being created anyways because of the economic momentum
    of the recovery under way under the previous administration.

    -American flag
    American flag was always there. Correct ??
    Unless Donald wants to take credit for that too !!
    Or maybe that's just an idiotic remark coming out of your corner.

    -In God we trust.
    I don't believe in Religion. So I'll let you wrap yourself around that one.

    -National anthem
    US National Anthem was written by John Stafford Smith in 1773.
    Your point ??

    -fully secure border
    The wall is built already ?? When we do Donald's report card, that will be one of the questions.

    -merit based immigration
    We do that in Canada. You guys have some catching up to do !!
    Maybe first conduct a review of what constitutes merit !!
    Or you will be stuck at square one for a while.
    Meanwhile Canada seems to be burdened with a lot of refugees coming
    from the US across the northern border.
    Because of Trump. Maybe US should build a wall at northern border.
    And US should pay for that wall !!


    -fighting opioid abuse
    Yeah, he talked about it again. Same problem in Canada. 4000 OD deaths in Canada last year. US with about 10 time that.
    With 10 times the population everywhere. So far .... all talk from Tubby !!

    -Jerusalem as capital of Israel
    Jerusalem is the capital of Israel. I googled it.
    Lots of work to be done there. Inflaming the Middle East with his approach isn't helping !! Well done though !!

    I think Melania sat too.
    She had a stone face that would look good on Mt Rushmore.

    I quit listening as soon as the Donald starts taking credit for things other people have done, which is most of this list.

    The only ones he actually did are things others with a conscience would be ashamed of doing.
