Trump to Governors: We’re Giving Power Back to the States

by Charlie Spiering | Breitbart  |  published on February 28, 2017

TrumpPresident Donald Trump promised a large crowd of American governors that he would work to redirect power from the federal government to the states.

“We’re going to give you back a lot of the powers that have been taken away from states and great people and great governors, and you can control it better than the federal government because you’re right on top of it,” Trump said.

The president delivered a speech at the National Governors Association meeting on Monday.

He explained that more states needed to compete for the best solutions around the country, citing the importance of citizens holding their state governors accountable.

“They know the best how to spend their dollars and how to take care of the people within each state,” Trump said, referring to state elected officials. “And states are different and people are different. So the governors are going to have a lot more decision-making ability than they have right now.”

    The documented racist is creating the seeding the return to 1950s discrimination for minorities and women. Remember people, this is the man who prefers foreign women who know their place.

      It’s funny how you go on and on and on calling President Trump names while whining that people who insult you are childish, hypocrite much? Do you have any shred of proof that President Trump is a racist?

        Trump lies told since January 20th:

        1. White House press secretary Sean Spicer falsely claimed the crowd on the National Mall was “largest audience to ever witness an inauguration.” (Jan. 21)

        2.Trump falsely claimed that the crowd for his swearing-in stretched down the National Mall to the Washington Monument and totaled more than 1 million people. (Jan. 21)

        3.As Trump fondly recalled his Inauguration Day, he said it stopped raining “immediately” when he began his speech. A light rain continued to fall throughout the address. (Jan. 21)

        4.During his speech at CIA headquarters, Trump claimed the media made up his feud with the agency. In fact, he started it by comparing the intelligence community to “Nazi Germany.” (Jan. 21)

        5.During his speech at CIA headquarters, Trump repeated the claim that he “didn’t want to go into Iraq.” He told Howard Stern in 2002 that he supported the Iraq War. (Jan. 21)

        6.During his speech at CIA headquarters, Trump said he had the “all-time record in the history of Time Magazine. … I’ve been on it for 15 times this year.” Trump had been featured on the magazine a total of 11 times. (Jan. 21)

        7.Trump claimed that his inauguration drew 11 million more viewers than Barack Obama’s in 2013. It didn’t, and viewership for Obama’s first inauguration, in 2009, was even higher. (Jan. 22)

        8.Spicer said during his first press briefing that there has been a “dramatic expansion of the federal workforce in recent years.” This is false. (Jan. 23)

        9.While pushing back against the notion of a rift between the CIA and Trump, Spicer claimed the president had received a “five-minute standing ovation” at the agency’s headquarters. He did not. The attendees were also never asked to sit down. (Jan. 23)

        10.Spicer claimed that “tens of millions of people” watched the inauguration online. In fact, about 4.6 million did. (Jan. 23)

        11.Trump told CBN News that 84 percent Cuban-Americans voted for him. It’s not clear where Trump got that number. According to the Pew Research Center, 54 percent of Cuban-Americans in Florida voted for him. (Jan. 23)

        12.While meeting with congressional leaders, Trump repeated a debunked claim that he only lost the national popular vote because of widespread voter fraud. (Jan. 24)

        13.In remarks with business leaders at the White House, Trump said, “I’m a very big person when it comes to the environment. I have received awards on the environment.” There is no evidence that Trump has received such awards. (Jan. 24)

        14.In signing an executive memo ordering the construction of the Keystone pipeline, Trump said the project would create 28,000 construction jobs. According to The Washington Post Fact Checker, the pipeline would create an estimated 16,000 jobs, most of which are not construction jobs. (Jan. 25)

        15.Spicer said in a press briefing that Trump received more electoral votes than any Republican since Ronald Reagan. George H.W. Bush won 426 electoral votes in 1988, more than Trump’s 304. (Jan. 24)

        16.In remarks he gave at the Homeland Security Department, Trump said Immigration and Customs Enforcement and border patrol agents “unanimously endorsed me for president.” That’s not true. (Jan. 25)

        17.Spicer said during a press briefing that a draft executive order on CIA prisons was not a “White House document.” Citing three administration officials, The New York Times reported that the White House had circulated the draft order among national security staff members. (Jan. 25)

        18.In an interview with ABC, Trump again claimed he “had the biggest audience in the history of inaugural speeches.” False. (Jan. 25)

        19.Trump claimed during an interview with ABC that the applause he received at CIA headquarters “was the biggest standing ovation since Peyton Manning had won the Super Bowl.” It wasn’t even a standing ovation. (Jan. 25)

        20.In an interview with ABC, Trump attacked the Affordable Care Act and said there are “millions of people that now aren’t insured anymore.” Twenty million people have gained health coverage because of the law so far. The estimated 2 million people who did not qualify under the law received waivers that kept the plans going until the end of 2017. (Jan. 25)

        21.At the GOP retreat in Philadelphia, Trump claimed he and the president of Mexico “agreed” to cancel their scheduled meeting. Enrique Peña Nieto said he had decided to cancel it. (Jan. 26)

        22.At the GOP retreat in Philadelphia, Trump said the national homicide rate was “horribly increasing.” It is down significantly. (Jan. 26)

        23.On Twitter, Trump repeated his false claim that 3 million votes were illegal during the election. (Jan. 27)

        24.In an interview on “Good Morning America,” Trump counselor Kellyanne Conway said Tiffany Trump, the president’s daughter, had told her she was “not registered to vote in two states.” A local election official confirmed to NBC News twice that the younger Trump indeed was. (Jan. 27)

        25.Trump said he predicted the so-called “Brexit” when he was in Scotland the day before the vote. He was actually there the day after the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union. (Jan. 27)

        26.Trump claimed The New York Times lost subscribers “because their readers even like me.” The Times experienced a sharp uptick in subscribers after Election Day. (Jan. 27)

        27.Trump claimed two people were fatally shot in Chicago during Obama’s last speech as president. That didn’t happen. (Jan. 27)

        28.Trump claimed that under previous administrations, “if you were a Muslim you could come in, but if you were a Christian, it was almost impossible.” In fact, almost as many Christian refugees were admitted to the U.S. as Muslim refugees in fiscal year 2016. (Jan. 27)

        29.Trump defended the swiftness of his immigration order on the grounds that terrorists would have rushed into the country if he had given the world a week’s notice. Even if terrorists wanted to infiltrate the refugee program or the visa program, they would have had to wait months or even years while being vetted to get into the country. (Jan. 30)

        30.The White House maintained that Trump’s immigration order did not apply to green card holders and that was “the guidance from the beginning.” Initially, the White House said the order did include green card holders. (Jan. 30)

        31.Trump said his immigration order was “similar to what President Obama did in 2011 when he banned visas for refugees from Iraq for six months.” Obama’s policy slowed resettlement of refugees from Iraq, but did not keep them from entering the country. Moreover, it flagged the seven countries included in Trump’s order as places the U.S. considered dangerous to visit. (Jan. 30)

        32.Spicer said that “by and large,” Trump has been “praised” for his statement commemorating the Holocaust. Every major Jewish organization, including the Republican Jewish Coalition, criticized it for omitting any specific references to the Jewish people or anti-Semitism. (Jan. 30)

        33.A Trump administration official called the implementation of Trump’s travel ban a “massive success story.” Not true ? young children, elderly people and U.S. green card holders were detained for hours. Some were deported upon landing in the U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) even criticized the rollout as “confusing.” (Jan. 30)

        34.Spicer equated White House adviser Steve Bannon’s appointment to the National Security Council Principals Committee with Obama adviser David Axelrod attending meetings pertaining to foreign policy. Axelrod, however, never sat on the Principals Committee. (Jan. 30)

        35.Spicer said people would have “flooded” into the country with advance notice of Trump’s immigration order. Not true. (Jan. 30)

        36.Spicer insisted that only 109 travelers were detained because of Trump’s immigration order. More than 1,000 legal permanent residents had to get waivers before entering the U.S. An estimated 90,000 people in total were affected by the ban. (Jan. 30)

        37.Trump tweeted the false claim that “only 109 people out of 325,000 were detained and held for questioning.” (Jan. 30)

        38.Trump took credit for cutting $600 million from the F-35 program. But Lockheed Martin already had planned for the cost reductions for the next generation fighter plane. (Jan. 31)

        39.Trump accused China of manipulating its currency by playing “the money market. They play the devaluation market, and we sit there like a bunch of dummies.” According to The Washington Post, the United States is no longer being hurt by China’s currency manipulation, and China is no longer devaluing its currency. (Jan. 31)

        40.In defending the GOP’s blockade of Merrick Garland, Obama’s nominee to the Supreme Court, Spicer said no president had ever nominated a justice “so late” in his term. It previously happened three times. (Jan. 31)

        41.Spicer repeatedly insisted during a press conference that Trump’s executive order on immigration was “not a ban.” During a Q&A event the night before, however, Spicer himself referred to the order as a “ban.” So did the president. (Jan. 31)

        42.White House officials denied reports that Trump told Peña Nieto that U.S. forces would handle the “bad hombres down there” if the Mexican authorities don’t. It confirmed the conversation the next day, maintaining the remark was meant to be “lighthearted.” (Jan. 31)

        43.Trump claimed that Delta, protesters and the tears of Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) were to blame for the problems over his travel ban. In fact, his administration was widely considered to blame for problems associated with its rollout. (Jan. 31)

        44.Trump said the Obama administration “agreed to take thousands of illegal immigrants from Australia.” The deal actually involved 1,250 refugees. (Feb. 1)

        45.Trump said the U.S. “has the most generous immigration system in the world.” Not really. (Feb. 2)

        46.Trump said the U.S. was giving Iran $150 billion for “nothing” under the Iranian nuclear deal. The money was already Iran’s to begin with, and the deal blocks Iran from building a nuclear bomb. (Feb. 2)

        47.Spicer called a U.S. raid in Yemen “very, very well thought out and executed effort” and described it as a “successful operation by all standards.” U.S. military officials told Reuters the operation was approved “without sufficient intelligence, ground support, or adequate backup preparations.” (Feb. 2)

        48.Spicer said that Iran had attacked a U.S. naval vessel, as part of his argument defending the administration’s bellicose announcement that Iran is “on notice.” In fact, a suspected Houthi rebel ship attacked a Saudi vessel. (Feb. 2)

        49.In his meeting with union leaders at the White House, Trump claimed he won union households. He actually only won white union households. (Feb. 2)

        50.Conway cited the “Bowling Green massacre” to defend Trump’s travel ban. It never happened. (Feb. 3)

        51.Conway said citing the nonexistent “Bowling Green massacre” to defend Trump’s immigration order was an accidental “slip.” But she had mentioned it twice prior to that interview. (Feb. 3)

        52.Trump approvingly shared a story on his official Facebook page which claimed that Kuwait issued a visa ban for five Muslim-majority countries. Kuwait issued a statement categorically denying it. (Feb. 3)

        53.Trump claimed people are “pouring in” after his immigration order was temporarily suspended. Travelers and refugees cannot simply rush into the U.S. without extensive and lengthy vetting. (Feb. 5)

        54.After a judge halted his immigration ban, Trump claimed that “anyone, even with bad intentions, can now come into the U.S.” Not true. (Feb. 5)

        55.Spicer said nationwide protests of Trump are not like protests the tea party held, and called them “a very paid AstroTurf-type movement.” Although Democrats have capitalized on the backlash against Trump by organizing, the massive rallies across dozens of cities across the country ? which in some cases have been spontaneous ? suggests they are part of an organic phenomenon. (Feb. 6)

        56.During an interview with Fox News before the Super Bowl, Trump repeated his debunked claim of widespread voter fraud during the presidential election. There is no evidence of widespread voter fraud. Republican and Democratic state officials have said so, as have Trump’s own campaign attorneys. (Feb. 6)

        57.During an interview with Fox News before the Super Bowl, Trump repeated his false claim that he has “been against the war in Iraq from the beginning.” (Feb. 6)

        58.Conway said she would not appear on CNN’s “State of the Union” because of “family” reasons. CNN, however, said the White House offered Conway as an alternative to Vice President Mike Pence and that the network had “passed” because of concerns about her “credibility.” (Feb. 6)

        59.Spicer claimed CNN “retracted” its explanation of why it declined to take Conway for a Sunday show appearance. CNN said it never did so. (Feb. 6)

        60.Trump cited attacks in Boston, Paris, Orlando, Florida, and Nice, France, as examples of terrorism the media has not covered adequately. “In many cases, the very, very dishonest press doesn’t want to report it,” he said at CENTCOM. Those attacks garnered wall-to-wall television coverage, as well as thousands of news articles in print and online. (Feb. 6)

        61.The White House released a more expansive list of terrorist attacks it believed “did not receive adequate attention from Western media sources.” Again, the list includes attacks that were widely covered by the media. (Feb. 6)

        62.Trump said sanctuary cities “breed crime.” FBI data indicates that crime in sanctuary cities is generally lower than in nonsanctuary cities. (Feb. 6)

        63.Trump claimed The New York Times was “forced to apologize to its subscribers for the poor reporting it did on my election win.” The paper has not issued such an apology. (Feb. 6)

        64.Trump claimed the murder rate is the highest it’s been in 47 years. The murder rate rose 10.8 percent across the United States in 2015, but it’s far lower than it was 30 to 40 years ago. (Feb. 7)

        65.Spicer explained that the delay in repealing Obamacare was a result of the White House wanting to work with Congress. Unlike during the Obama administration, he asserted, the legislature ? not the White House ? was taking the lead on health care. Various congressional committees worked on drafting multiple versions of the bill that would become the Affordable Care Act ? a lengthy process that took over a year. (Feb. 7)

        66.Trump accused Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) of misrepresenting “what Judge Neil Gorsuch told him” in response to the president’s attacks against the judiciary. Gorsuch called Trump’s tweets attacking federal judges “demoralizing.” A spokesman for Gorsuch confirmed the judge’s remarks. (Feb. 9)

        67.Trump has repeatedly said he doesn’t watch CNN. But he had to in order to see and offer and opinion on the network’s interview with Blumenthal. (Feb. 9)

        68.Former national security adviser Michael Flynn has said that phone calls he made to Russia prior to Trump’s inauguration were not related to sanctions. According to a Washington Post report, however, Flynn held private discussions with Sergey Kislyak, the Russian ambassador, before Trump took office, suggesting that sanctions against Moscow would be eased by the incoming administration. (Feb. 9)

        69.Trump took credit for Ford’s decision not to open an auto factory in Mexico and instead expand its Michigan plant. The company said Trump was not responsible for its decision. (Feb. 9)

        70.Trump told a room full of politicians that “thousands” of “illegal” voters had been driven into New Hampshire to cast ballots. There is no evidence of such a claim. (Feb. 11)

        71.During an interview with ABC’s “This Week,” White House senior policy aide Stephen Miller falsely said the “issue of busing voters into New Hampshire is widely known by anyone who’s worked in New Hampshire politics.” Again, not true. (Feb. 11)

        72.Miller cited the “astonishing” statistic that 14 percent of noncitizens are registered to vote. The study the stat is based on has been highly contested. (Feb. 11)

        73.Trump said Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) was “cut off” on CNN for “using the term fake news the describe the network.” The senator was joking and he was not cut off. (Feb. 12)

        74.Trump accused the media of refusing to report on “big crowds of enthusiastic supporters lining the road” in Florida. There were a few supporters, but they were vastly outnumbered by hundreds of protesters. (Feb. 12)

        75.White House officials told reporters that Flynn decided on his own to resign. However, Spicer said during a press briefing that the president asked Flynn to resign. (Feb. 13)

        76.Trump denied in a January interview that he or anyone on his campaign had any contact with Russia prior to the election. However, The New York Times and CNN both reported that Trump campaign officials and associates “had repeated contacts with senior Russian intelligence officials” before Nov. 8. (Feb. 15)

        77.Spicer denied in a daily briefing that anyone on the Trump campaign had had any contact with Russian officials. (Feb. 15)

        78.Trump complained he “inherited a mess” upon being elected to office. The stock market is experiencing record highs, the economy is stable and growing, and unemployment is low. (Feb. 16)

        79.Trump disputed the notion that his administration is experiencing turmoil, telling reporters it is working like a “fine-tuned machine.” His poorly executed travel ban has been suspended by the courts, a Cabinet nominee was forced to withdraw his nomination, and Trump’s national security adviser resigned after less than four weeks on the job. (Feb. 16)

        80.Trump said his 306 Electoral College votes was the biggest electoral votes victory since Ronald Reagan. Obama got 332 votes in 2012. (Feb. 16)

        81.Trump said his first weeks in office “represented an unprecedented month of action.” Obama accomplished much more during his first weeks in office. (Feb. 16)

        82.Defending himself from charges of hypocrisy on the matter of leaks ? which he frequently celebrated when they pertained to his campaign opposition but now denounces ? Trump said that WikiLeaks does not publicize “classified information.” It does, often anonymously. (Feb. 16)

        83.Trump repeated his claim that Hillary Clinton gave 20 percent of American uranium to the Russians in a deal during her tenure as secretary of state. Not true. (Feb. 16)

        84.Trump said drugs are “becoming cheaper than a candy bar.” They are not. (Feb. 16)

        85.Trump said his administration had a “very smooth rollout of the travel ban.” His immigration caused chaos at the nation’s airports and has been suspended by the courts. (Feb. 16)

        86.Trump said the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals is in “chaos” and “turmoil.” It is not. (Feb. 16)

        87.Flynn lied to FBI investigators in a Jan. 24 interview about whether he discussed sanctions with Russian officials prior to Trump’s inauguration, according to The Washington Post. (Feb. 6)

        88.Trump falsely suggested at a Florida rally that Sweden had suffered a terror attack the night before his speech. It had not, and Trump was likely referring to a Fox News segment on crime in Sweden. (Feb. 18)

        89.During his Florida rally, Trump repeated his false claim that the United States has already let in thousands of people who “there was no way to vet.” Refugees undergo the most rigorous vetting process of any immigrants admitted to the United States, often waiting upwards of two years to be cleared for entry. (Feb. 18)

        90.White House chief of staff Reince Priebus said in a “Fox News Sunday” interview that Trump “has accomplished more in the first 30 days than people can remember.” Obama accomplished much more during his first weeks in office. (Feb. 19)

        91.Trump said during his campaign that he would only play golf with heads of state and business leaders, not friends and celebrities like Obama did. Trump has golfed with world leaders like Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. Most recently, however, he hit the links with golf pro Rory McIlroy, International Sports Management’s Nick Mullen and his friend Rich Levine. (Feb. 19)

        92.A White House spokesperson told reporters that Trump only played a “couple” of holes at his golf resort in Florida. A day later, as reports came out saying the president had played 18 holes with Mcllroy, the White House admitted he played “longer.” (Feb. 19)

        93.Trump said the media is “trying to say large scale immigration in Sweden is working out just beautifully. NOT!” Sweden’s crime rate has fallen in recent years, and experts there do not think its immigration policies are linked to crime. (Feb. 20)

        94.Spicer said Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R) asked for a meeting with Trump at the White House. John Weaver, a former campaign aide of the governor, said the president asked for the meeting. (Feb. 21)

        95.Vice President Mike Pence called Obamacare a “job killer.” Overall, job growth has been steady since it was signed into law. And the number of unwilling part-time jobs has also gone down, contrary to GOP claims. (Feb. 22)

        96.Trump claimed that he negotiated $1 billion in savings to develop two new Boeing Co. jets to serve as the next Air Force One. The Air Force can’t account for that number. (Feb. 22)

        97.During a meeting with the nation’s CEOs at the White House, Trump claimed his new economic adviser Gary Cohn “paid $200 million in tax” to take a job at the White House. Cohn didn’t have to pay taxes, he had to sell more than $200 million of Goldman Sachs stock. (Feb. 23)

        98.Trump claimed there were “six blocks” worth of people waiting to get into the Conservative Political Action Conference to see him. People filled only three overflow rooms. (Feb. 24)

        99.At CPAC, Trump said that Obamacare covers “very few people.” Nearly 20 million people have gotten health insurance under the law. (Feb. 24)

        100.At CPAC, Trump said companies like Intel were making business investments in the United States because of his election. The company planned their new investments before the election. (Feb. 24)

    Yes. Make states responsible for payments and all perks to their elected officials. Make elected officials to all buisness from the state capital. Do buisness over Internet. Make Washington not the richest city in the world.

    This return to “real states rights authority” desperately needs to be done. This was the whole idea of the Founding Fathers when they created a “republic” of sovereign states. The federal government was given very little authority originally and only a few actual tasks to do by the Constitution. Everything else was deeded to the states and has been confiscated by politicians in their quest for ultimate power and control over the money and lives of the citizens that they treat as subjects not their masters as it as intended. Politicians from both major parties are responsible for what has happened to America and Trumps move back to the original concept of the Constitution and Bill of Rights is going to really piss them off. If you love freedom and liberty you need to have Trumps back because the politicians will be out to stab him in his.

  • Webb

    Darn…Someone actually interested in States Rights!
    “They know the best how to spend their dollars and how to take care of the people within each state,” Trump said!
    This statement by Trump will definitely keep Progressives up at Night wondering how to Continue putting Big Government more in charge of our everyday lives…
    Ever wonder why there is an “F” painted on the front of every Train Engine…because Progressives believe Americans are to stupid to know Front From Rear!!

    • metheoldsarge

      They would know how to spend their money if they had their priorities straight. Then there is California.

  • justinwachin

    I’m glad to see this president has read the 10th amendment. States need to take on the tasks not specifically granted to the federal government by the Constitution. This may take some time to make the transition since we have been on our current unconstitutional path for a while now.

    At the same time the federal government should also begin phasing out many of the grants where it gives money to the states. The federal government should cut taxes to reflect its reduced role. The states will probably need to raise taxes to fund their new tasks and to make up the decrease in federal funds.

  • Richard Bagenstose

    cut the money from the states so they have to balance their budgets like every one else has to, handing billions to states like cal. doesn’t fix anything ,once they are forced to stop paying for illegals and refugees , we might get some sanity back in state and local government

  • The Redhawk

    This is as it should be. Hopefully with all the Republican Governors they will be able to stop the Refugee Program, like Texas did and get rid of the illegals that are taking millions of dollars from tax payers, against the law.

    • AKLady

      You have been well-brainwashed. Factually, illegals contribute $11 billion to the American economy — over and above what they take out. Now that you have gotten results from your temper tantrum, expect to see grocery prices increase 40% t0 60%.

      • Olaf Thunderfoot

        Do you have proof of this eleven billion dollars?

        • AKLady

          Let’s see, they pay rent, buy groceries, buy clothing, buy gas, pay utilities …
          .
          The statistics are published on line. Use your Internet connection to educate yourself. Obviously, simple common sense is not enough.

          • Olaf Thunderfoot

            It’s not my responsibility to find the proof you should be providing. I am well educated and don’t blindly believe all the bullshit the main stream media spews.

          • AKLady

            You either are interested in fact, ir you would rather go with the lies and bigotry. Your choice.

          • Olaf Thunderfoot

            You have no documented facts which is why you haven’t posted them. If you actually find some evidence to support your OPINIONS I would gladly concede that you are correct.

          • AKLady

            Why don’t you tell mw how you can live without buying groceries, buyng clothing, buying gas, paying utilities …

            The valid facts are published on the Internet.

            You are either are interested in fact or you would rather go with the lies and bigotry. Your choice

          • Olaf Thunderfoot

            You are too stupid to understand that the burden of providing proof to back up your statements during a debate falls on you. Unless you can actually provide these facts I am done with this conversation. Good day.

          • AKLady

            No amount of “proof” has ever changed the mind of an ignorant, bigot. You are not interested din facts or truth. If you were, you would not be spouting lies, bigotry and insults.

    bobnstuff has a mental problem; don’t waste your time on him, he sees the world through his acehole. Liberal states don’t want their powers back , it makes them ACCOUNTABLE with no one to blame if their ideas fail [liberalism]. Federal law still says “mary jane” is illegal; states can pass their laws but if there is federal law competing for oversight the fed wins; remember bobnstuff YOU LOST; obimbo’s exact words remember? Immigrants are not the same as “illegal” immigrants you libfools.

    • bobnstuff

      I’m all for states rights, what I’m not for is this dog and pony show going on in the White House. Trump says one thing and his people say something total different. It’s those so call liberal states that pay the bills for those conservative states. When voters in a state say something should be legal, when all the research says it should be legal and you have the President talking about states rights shouldn’t that be something that is given back to the states? Conservatives are all for freedoms until it’s time to give up power to stick their noise in other peoples business. We have freedom of religion as long as it’s the right religion, we have freedom of the press as long as we don’t say bad things about Trump. We have justice for all as long as all doesn’t include everyone. I’m not the one who seem to have lost, it’s the American people who have lost.

      • John

        look who is talking it seems you don’t remember the last 8 years and the obamanites trying to enforce political correctness on any body but libs they were the only ones that could be heard. Well in obamas own words “We won baby now shut it up”

        • bobnstuff

          It’s sad to see people thinking there were winners and losers in the governing of our country. Also it’s sad that caring about others is a bad thing. Respecting the rights and beliefs of other people even when they are not the same as yours shouldn’t be a bad thing but our president seems to believe that and so do his followers. As long as there is I got mine and to heck with you attitude in this country it can never be great. I thought that it was “One nation under God indivisible with liberty and justice for all.” Do you believe in that?

          • AKLady

            Amen.

        • AKLady

          Mpre onfamtile sewer language.
          It is no wonder you all did not like Obama — you Red State school dropouts could not keep up. let, alone reach adult goals.

          • Retired

            Well you attended some of the Commie schools , it shows .

          • AKLady

            What schools might those be?

            Charter Oak College, State of Connecticut?
            Uniformed Services University of Health Sciences?
            Cardinal Stritch College, Wisconsin?
            U.S.D.A. Graduate School?
            University of South Carolina, School of Medicine?
            University o Wisconsin?

          • Retired

            You were brain washed at the Commie school .

        • AKLady

          It’s sad to see people thinking there were winners and losers in the governing of our country.

      • regulus30

        well bobnstuff where have you been living for the previous eight years? Hypocrite.

        • bobnstuff

          The Obama White House spoke with one voice, it didn’t change what it was saying ever five minute. You may not have liked is policy but you at lease had an idea where it stood. Here is the thing, Obama isn’t President any more and just because you didn’t like him doesn’t make the Trump White House any better. You blame Obama for dividing the nation so now tell me what Trump has done to unite it. He is playing to his fan base and forgetting that he is suppose to be everyone’s president. I asked a simple question. Do you believe in “One nation under God indivisible, with liberty and justice for ALL.”

          • regulus30

            this is true; obammie, rice , clinton ALL LIED about Benghazi, they ALL lied about “obammmacare, they ALL lied about unempolyment rates, etc.

          • bobnstuff

            My guess is you have never look into how they figure the unemployment rate. If it was a lie for Obama it was a lie for every president since they started figuring it. It’s also going to be false for Trump. Also isn’t it amazing that $8.5 million dollars later the Republicans still couldn’t get the goods on Clinton about Benghazi. My point is they didn’t change their story every ten minutes and everyone told the same story.

          • regulus30

            oh let’e see; they USED to take the workplace participation rate [which is the big number obama manipulated] and divided those actively unemployed AND LOOKING for work by that number “U-3”; obammie reduced the work place number by declaring individuals had stopped looking for work, thus shrinking the individuals in the WP [that number is currently at 13 million fewer] ; total number of adults eligible for work is the U-6 and that includes 93 million adults NOT WORKING, which is the real unemployment number. Now bobnstuff I know how you like to double talk and attempt to liberalize your juxtaposition, so save yourself the embarrassment and just google it.

          • AKLady

            Infantile name calling.
            I’m impressed; just not the way you had in mind.
            It does go along with the false data you spew.

          • regulus30

            and I suppose you think I give a shit666 what you think.

          • AKLady

            Thank you.
            Your input is always welcome
            It says so much about you.

          • AKLady

            Trump has told over 100 lies —
            just since the inauguration. Guess you are deaf.

          • regulus30

            yip; you are liberal sucking in the fake news; fact check your comments or shut it off; obamam told a million lies and you ate a mile of his shit66 just to see where it came from.

          • AKLady

            1. White House press secretary Sean Spicer falsely claimed the crowd on the National Mall was “largest audience to ever witness an inauguration.” (Jan. 21)

            2.Trump falsely claimed that the crowd for his swearing-in stretched down the National Mall to the Washington Monument and totaled more than 1 million people. (Jan. 21)

            3.As Trump fondly recalled his Inauguration Day, he said it stopped raining “immediately” when he began his speech. A light rain continued to fall throughout the address. (Jan. 21)

            4.During his speech at CIA headquarters, Trump claimed the media made up his feud with the agency. In fact, he started it by comparing the intelligence community to “Nazi Germany.” (Jan. 21)

            5.During his speech at CIA headquarters, Trump repeated the claim that he “didn’t want to go into Iraq.” He told Howard Stern in 2002 that he supported the Iraq War. (Jan. 21)

            6.During his speech at CIA headquarters, Trump said he had the “all-time record in the history of Time Magazine. … I’ve been on it for 15 times this year.” Trump had been featured on the magazine a total of 11 times. (Jan. 21)

            7.Trump claimed that his inauguration drew 11 million more viewers than Barack Obama’s in 2013. It didn’t, and viewership for Obama’s first inauguration, in 2009, was even higher. (Jan. 22)

            8.Spicer said during his first press briefing that there has been a “dramatic expansion of the federal workforce in recent years.” This is false. (Jan. 23)

            9.While pushing back against the notion of a rift between the CIA and Trump, Spicer claimed the president had received a “five-minute standing ovation” at the agency’s headquarters. He did not. The attendees were also never asked to sit down. (Jan. 23)

            10.Spicer claimed that “tens of millions of people” watched the inauguration online. In fact, about 4.6 million did. (Jan. 23)

            11.Trump told CBN News that 84 percent Cuban-Americans voted for him. It’s not clear where Trump got that number. According to the Pew Research Center, 54 percent of Cuban-Americans in Florida voted for him. (Jan. 23)

            12.While meeting with congressional leaders, Trump repeated a debunked claim that he only lost the national popular vote because of widespread voter fraud. (Jan. 24)

            13.In remarks with business leaders at the White House, Trump said, “I’m a very big person when it comes to the environment. I have received awards on the environment.” There is no evidence that Trump has received such awards. (Jan. 24)

            14.In signing an executive memo ordering the construction of the Keystone pipeline, Trump said the project would create 28,000 construction jobs. According to The Washington Post Fact Checker, the pipeline would create an estimated 16,000 jobs, most of which are not construction jobs. (Jan. 25)

            15.Spicer said in a press briefing that Trump received more electoral votes than any Republican since Ronald Reagan. George H.W. Bush won 426 electoral votes in 1988, more than Trump’s 304. (Jan. 24)

            16.In remarks he gave at the Homeland Security Department, Trump said Immigration and Customs Enforcement and border patrol agents “unanimously endorsed me for president.” That’s not true. (Jan. 25)

            17.Spicer said during a press briefing that a draft executive order on CIA prisons was not a “White House document.” Citing three administration officials, The New York Times reported that the White House had circulated the draft order among national security staff members. (Jan. 25)

            18.In an interview with ABC, Trump again claimed he “had the biggest audience in the history of inaugural speeches.” False. (Jan. 25)

            19.Trump claimed during an interview with ABC that the applause he received at CIA headquarters “was the biggest standing ovation since Peyton Manning had won the Super Bowl.” It wasn’t even a standing ovation. (Jan. 25)

            20.In an interview with ABC, Trump attacked the Affordable Care Act and said there are “millions of people that now aren’t insured anymore.” Twenty million people have gained health coverage because of the law so far. The estimated 2 million people who did not qualify under the law received waivers that kept the plans going until the end of 2017. (Jan. 25)

            21.At the GOP retreat in Philadelphia, Trump claimed he and the president of Mexico “agreed” to cancel their scheduled meeting. Enrique Peña Nieto said he had decided to cancel it. (Jan. 26)

            22.At the GOP retreat in Philadelphia, Trump said the national homicide rate was “horribly increasing.” It is down significantly. (Jan. 26)

            23.On Twitter, Trump repeated his false claim that 3 million votes were illegal during the election. (Jan. 27)

            24.In an interview on “Good Morning America,” Trump counselor Kellyanne Conway said Tiffany Trump, the president’s daughter, had told her she was “not registered to vote in two states.” A local election official confirmed to NBC News twice that the younger Trump indeed was. (Jan. 27)

            25.Trump said he predicted the so-called “Brexit” when he was in Scotland the day before the vote. He was actually there the day after the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union. (Jan. 27)

            26.Trump claimed The New York Times lost subscribers “because their readers even like me.” The Times experienced a sharp uptick in subscribers after Election Day. (Jan. 27)

            27.Trump claimed two people were fatally shot in Chicago during Obama’s last speech as president. That didn’t happen. (Jan. 27)

            28.Trump claimed that under previous administrations, “if you were a Muslim you could come in, but if you were a Christian, it was almost impossible.” In fact, almost as many Christian refugees were admitted to the U.S. as Muslim refugees in fiscal year 2016. (Jan. 27)

            29.Trump defended the swiftness of his immigration order on the grounds that terrorists would have rushed into the country if he had given the world a week’s notice. Even if terrorists wanted to infiltrate the refugee program or the visa program, they would have had to wait months or even years while being vetted to get into the country. (Jan. 30)

            30.The White House maintained that Trump’s immigration order did not apply to green card holders and that was “the guidance from the beginning.” Initially, the White House said the order did include green card holders. (Jan. 30)

            31.Trump said his immigration order was “similar to what President Obama did in 2011 when he banned visas for refugees from Iraq for six months.” Obama’s policy slowed resettlement of refugees from Iraq, but did not keep them from entering the country. Moreover, it flagged the seven countries included in Trump’s order as places the U.S. considered dangerous to visit. (Jan. 30)

            32.Spicer said that “by and large,” Trump has been “praised” for his statement commemorating the Holocaust. Every major Jewish organization, including the Republican Jewish Coalition, criticized it for omitting any specific references to the Jewish people or anti-Semitism. (Jan. 30)

            33.A Trump administration official called the implementation of Trump’s travel ban a “massive success story.” Not true ? young children, elderly people and U.S. green card holders were detained for hours. Some were deported upon landing in the U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) even criticized the rollout as “confusing.” (Jan. 30)

            34.Spicer equated White House adviser Steve Bannon’s appointment to the National Security Council Principals Committee with Obama adviser David Axelrod attending meetings pertaining to foreign policy. Axelrod, however, never sat on the Principals Committee. (Jan. 30)

            35.Spicer said people would have “flooded” into the country with advance notice of Trump’s immigration order. Not true. (Jan. 30)

            36.Spicer insisted that only 109 travelers were detained because of Trump’s immigration order. More than 1,000 legal permanent residents had to get waivers before entering the U.S. An estimated 90,000 people in total were affected by the ban. (Jan. 30)

            37.Trump tweeted the false claim that “only 109 people out of 325,000 were detained and held for questioning.” (Jan. 30)

            38.Trump took credit for cutting $600 million from the F-35 program. But Lockheed Martin already had planned for the cost reductions for the next generation fighter plane. (Jan. 31)

            39.Trump accused China of manipulating its currency by playing “the money market. They play the devaluation market, and we sit there like a bunch of dummies.” According to The Washington Post, the United States is no longer being hurt by China’s currency manipulation, and China is no longer devaluing its currency. (Jan. 31)

            40.In defending the GOP’s blockade of Merrick Garland, Obama’s nominee to the Supreme Court, Spicer said no president had ever nominated a justice “so late” in his term. It previously happened three times. (Jan. 31)

            41.Spicer repeatedly insisted during a press conference that Trump’s executive order on immigration was “not a ban.” During a Q&A event the night before, however, Spicer himself referred to the order as a “ban.” So did the president. (Jan. 31)

            42.White House officials denied reports that Trump told Peña Nieto that U.S. forces would handle the “bad hombres down there” if the Mexican authorities don’t. It confirmed the conversation the next day, maintaining the remark was meant to be “lighthearted.” (Jan. 31)

            43.Trump claimed that Delta, protesters and the tears of Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) were to blame for the problems over his travel ban. In fact, his administration was widely considered to blame for problems associated with its rollout. (Jan. 31)

            44.Trump said the Obama administration “agreed to take thousands of illegal immigrants from Australia.” The deal actually involved 1,250 refugees. (Feb. 1)

            45.Trump said the U.S. “has the most generous immigration system in the world.” Not really. (Feb. 2)

            46.Trump said the U.S. was giving Iran $150 billion for “nothing” under the Iranian nuclear deal. The money was already Iran’s to begin with, and the deal blocks Iran from building a nuclear bomb. (Feb. 2)

            47.Spicer called a U.S. raid in Yemen “very, very well thought out and executed effort” and described it as a “successful operation by all standards.” U.S. military officials told Reuters the operation was approved “without sufficient intelligence, ground support, or adequate backup preparations.” (Feb. 2)

            48.Spicer said that Iran had attacked a U.S. naval vessel, as part of his argument defending the administration’s bellicose announcement that Iran is “on notice.” In fact, a suspected Houthi rebel ship attacked a Saudi vessel. (Feb. 2)

            49.In his meeting with union leaders at the White House, Trump claimed he won union households. He actually only won white union households. (Feb. 2)

            50.Conway cited the “Bowling Green massacre” to defend Trump’s travel ban. It never happened. (Feb. 3)

            51.Conway said citing the nonexistent “Bowling Green massacre” to defend Trump’s immigration order was an accidental “slip.” But she had mentioned it twice prior to that interview. (Feb. 3)

            52.Trump approvingly shared a story on his official Facebook page which claimed that Kuwait issued a visa ban for five Muslim-majority countries. Kuwait issued a statement categorically denying it. (Feb. 3)

            53.Trump claimed people are “pouring in” after his immigration order was temporarily suspended. Travelers and refugees cannot simply rush into the U.S. without extensive and lengthy vetting. (Feb. 5)

            54.After a judge halted his immigration ban, Trump claimed that “anyone, even with bad intentions, can now come into the U.S.” Not true. (Feb. 5)

            55.Spicer said nationwide protests of Trump are not like protests the tea party held, and called them “a very paid AstroTurf-type movement.” Although Democrats have capitalized on the backlash against Trump by organizing, the massive rallies across dozens of cities across the country ? which in some cases have been spontaneous ? suggests they are part of an organic phenomenon. (Feb. 6)

            56.During an interview with Fox News before the Super Bowl, Trump repeated his debunked claim of widespread voter fraud during the presidential election. There is no evidence of widespread voter fraud. Republican and Democratic state officials have said so, as have Trump’s own campaign attorneys. (Feb. 6)

            57.During an interview with Fox News before the Super Bowl, Trump repeated his false claim that he has “been against the war in Iraq from the beginning.” (Feb. 6)

            58.Conway said she would not appear on CNN’s “State of the Union” because of “family” reasons. CNN, however, said the White House offered Conway as an alternative to Vice President Mike Pence and that the network had “passed” because of concerns about her “credibility.” (Feb. 6)

            59.Spicer claimed CNN “retracted” its explanation of why it declined to take Conway for a Sunday show appearance. CNN said it never did so. (Feb. 6)

            60.Trump cited attacks in Boston, Paris, Orlando, Florida, and Nice, France, as examples of terrorism the media has not covered adequately. “In many cases, the very, very dishonest press doesn’t want to report it,” he said at CENTCOM. Those attacks garnered wall-to-wall television coverage, as well as thousands of news articles in print and online. (Feb. 6)

            61.The White House released a more expansive list of terrorist attacks it believed “did not receive adequate attention from Western media sources.” Again, the list includes attacks that were widely covered by the media. (Feb. 6)

            62.Trump said sanctuary cities “breed crime.” FBI data indicates that crime in sanctuary cities is generally lower than in nonsanctuary cities. (Feb. 6)

            63.Trump claimed The New York Times was “forced to apologize to its subscribers for the poor reporting it did on my election win.” The paper has not issued such an apology. (Feb. 6)

            64.Trump claimed the murder rate is the highest it’s been in 47 years. The murder rate rose 10.8 percent across the United States in 2015, but it’s far lower than it was 30 to 40 years ago. (Feb. 7)

            65.Spicer explained that the delay in repealing Obamacare was a result of the White House wanting to work with Congress. Unlike during the Obama administration, he asserted, the legislature ? not the White House ? was taking the lead on health care. Various congressional committees worked on drafting multiple versions of the bill that would become the Affordable Care Act ? a lengthy process that took over a year. (Feb. 7)

            66.Trump accused Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) of misrepresenting “what Judge Neil Gorsuch told him” in response to the president’s attacks against the judiciary. Gorsuch called Trump’s tweets attacking federal judges “demoralizing.” A spokesman for Gorsuch confirmed the judge’s remarks. (Feb. 9)

            67.Trump has repeatedly said he doesn’t watch CNN. But he had to in order to see and offer and opinion on the network’s interview with Blumenthal. (Feb. 9)

            68.Former national security adviser Michael Flynn has said that phone calls he made to Russia prior to Trump’s inauguration were not related to sanctions. According to a Washington Post report, however, Flynn held private discussions with Sergey Kislyak, the Russian ambassador, before Trump took office, suggesting that sanctions against Moscow would be eased by the incoming administration. (Feb. 9)

            69.Trump took credit for Ford’s decision not to open an auto factory in Mexico and instead expand its Michigan plant. The company said Trump was not responsible for its decision. (Feb. 9)

            70.Trump told a room full of politicians that “thousands” of “illegal” voters had been driven into New Hampshire to cast ballots. There is no evidence of such a claim. (Feb. 11)

            71.During an interview with ABC’s “This Week,” White House senior policy aide Stephen Miller falsely said the “issue of busing voters into New Hampshire is widely known by anyone who’s worked in New Hampshire politics.” Again, not true. (Feb. 11)

            72.Miller cited the “astonishing” statistic that 14 percent of noncitizens are registered to vote. The study the stat is based on has been highly contested. (Feb. 11)

            73.Trump said Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) was “cut off” on CNN for “using the term fake news the describe the network.” The senator was joking and he was not cut off. (Feb. 12)

            74.Trump accused the media of refusing to report on “big crowds of enthusiastic supporters lining the road” in Florida. There were a few supporters, but they were vastly outnumbered by hundreds of protesters. (Feb. 12)

            75.White House officials told reporters that Flynn decided on his own to resign. However, Spicer said during a press briefing that the president asked Flynn to resign. (Feb. 13)

            76.Trump denied in a January interview that he or anyone on his campaign had any contact with Russia prior to the election. However, The New York Times and CNN both reported that Trump campaign officials and associates “had repeated contacts with senior Russian intelligence officials” before Nov. 8. (Feb. 15)

            77.Spicer denied in a daily briefing that anyone on the Trump campaign had had any contact with Russian officials. (Feb. 15)

            78.Trump complained he “inherited a mess” upon being elected to office. The stock market is experiencing record highs, the economy is stable and growing, and unemployment is low. (Feb. 16)

            79.Trump disputed the notion that his administration is experiencing turmoil, telling reporters it is working like a “fine-tuned machine.” His poorly executed travel ban has been suspended by the courts, a Cabinet nominee was forced to withdraw his nomination, and Trump’s national security adviser resigned after less than four weeks on the job. (Feb. 16)

            80.Trump said his 306 Electoral College votes was the biggest electoral votes victory since Ronald Reagan. Obama got 332 votes in 2012. (Feb. 16)

            81.Trump said his first weeks in office “represented an unprecedented month of action.” Obama accomplished much more during his first weeks in office. (Feb. 16)

            82.Defending himself from charges of hypocrisy on the matter of leaks ? which he frequently celebrated when they pertained to his campaign opposition but now denounces ? Trump said that WikiLeaks does not publicize “classified information.” It does, often anonymously. (Feb. 16)

            83.Trump repeated his claim that Hillary Clinton gave 20 percent of American uranium to the Russians in a deal during her tenure as secretary of state. Not true. (Feb. 16)

            89.During his Florida rally, Trump repeated his false claim that the United States has already let in thousands of people who “there was no way to vet.” Refugees undergo the most rigorous vetting process of any immigrants admitted to the United States, often waiting upwards of two years to be cleared for entry.

    At the same time Trump is telling governors he’s giving them more power he is cracking down on federal laws. What Trump says and what others in his government say and do don’t line up very well. Case in point a number of states have voted to legalize marijuana but the AG is talking about cracking down on it. A number of states rely on the immigrant population for their labor force but the new anti immigrant government is working against them. They are taking the workers away with no plan on who will do the work. Trump should understand the problem since he has both brought in labor on visas and employed illegals in the past. What the Trump administration is doing is planning on cutting funds but hiding the fact buy giving block grants to states. They will give a little more power but much less financial support. They will pick and choose the powers they give not based on the different needs of the states but on how much money they can save and the personal beliefs of the members of the Trump government. I haven’t heard the Federal government spending much time asking the governors what they need and listening to them but instead they will get what this administration decides on. Big brother knows best.

      A lot of supposition on your part.

    • FLChristyB

      The government will not ‘crack down’ of people who need marijuana for medical reasons, and have a prescription, but they will crack down on those buying and selling illegally. Nothing new here. And as far as illegals go, maybe the millions of Americans who lost their jobs under the last administration will be able to find work. We have always had, and will always have, migrant farm workers, but now illegals are taking jobs that were once held by American citizens, most evident is construction work! I know literally hundreds of people in my area who lost jobs and businesses because bigger companies hired illegals to do the work, roofing, drywall, painters, framers, that hit our area HARD. With tax breaks and REAL enforcement of immigration laws, Americans can get back to work and rebuild their businesses. If Trump gives more power back to States, they won’t need government funding. Eliminate dozens of unnecessary Fed. departments, hand those responsibilities back to the States, and reduce federal taxes and allow States to obtain the funding from the people within those States. Makes more sense as we can hold our State accountable much easier than a distant Federal Government.
      And your last sentence makes no sense, Big Brother? We just got rid of the biggest intruder in our lives, Obama! More government, more regulations, infringement on our constitutional rights came every day under that socialist regime! Pat downs and body scanners at airports, suing States for laws they have every right to pass for their own citizens protection. EPA telling people what they can and cannot do with their own property, taking private property from legal land owners….the list is unending the invasion of our rights and privacy that went on under Obama. That ENDS NOW. Free at last, Free at last, thank GOD ALMIGHTY we are Free at last! Great words from a great Republican – MLK!!

      • bobnstuff

        All those unemployed people who lost their jobs don’t want to pick fruit or vegetables, They don’t even want to do roofing. Add in the fact that the jobs are not in the cities or the states with high unemployment and you might see the problem. I don’t like having illegals around but unless there is a plan for dealing with the problem created by getting rid of them it might just be a good idea to slow down and think about it. So just where do you live that is having all these skilled laborers out of work. Around my area finding a good drywall man is next to impossible. I talk to contractors all the time and their number one complaint is trying to find good help.

        My guess is you have never been knowingly impacted by pollution. The only reason you have drinkable water in this country and breathable air is thanks to the EPA. I’m old enough to remember what it was like before them. They keep people from doing things to damage your world and to protect your property from the careless act of others. Ever seen what mine drainage can do to a stream? Ever seen a person have an asthma attack just from breathing polluted air. How about kids that couldn’t go out and play because the air was to bad. It’s sad that people have to be forced into doing the right thing but in our world it is what has to be done. Just so you know the EPA was created by the Republicans in the 70’s

        Once again making each state pay their own way sounds nice on paper but there are a number of states that can’t seen to do that. For one reason or another they don’t have the tax base to do it. I find it interesting that most of those states are run by republicans. 9 of the top 10 poorest states are Republican. Also you should look at where are federal tax money goes. All those programs that service people make up a very small part of the budgets. The biggest part goes to defense and their slice is getting bigger. The fact that we spend more on defense then the next seven countries combined should tell you something. We give out twice as much in corporate welfare then in human welfare. Also here is a little fact, cutting taxes doesn’t grow the economy. It never has, it just a myth that is spread by the wealthy to get richer.

        As far as Big Brother go read the book 1984 and see if much is familiar. After 9/11 there was the single largest grab of our rights and freedoms in history. The government can spy on you, arrest you and even take your property when ever they want and you can’t do anything to stop them. Trump needs to grow a mustache.
