I hope they're serious about cutting off handouts to the countries who vote against us. It's long overdue.

President Trump has delivered on a number of promises for his base. But there was an impressive amount of breakage along the way. You might say he President Trump did as much demolition as he did construction.

Seriously? The election established that the media has no journalistic standards or ethics any more and are merely the PR arm of the DNC. All pretense at objectivity or credibility has been long lost. I wake up every day happy that Donald Trump is Barack Hussein Obama's President.

But the press didn't make this attention grabbing tweet up, Trump actually tweeted this. Are you suggesting that he didn't tweet this? Or that he and his policies are actually responsible for this achievement? Or that such absurd claims are acceptable? Really? :???:

Not suggesting anything. I am stating quite clearly that you exhibit a severe and advanced case of "Trump Derangement Syndrome" and I hope that you seek treatment.
So Trump tweets an indefensible claim and you clearly support and believe this to be true to the point you make personal attacks to defend his behavior.... I think I finally understand what the little boy who pointed out that the emperor had no clothes felt like.

Trump loves living in the heads of his detractors. That's why he does these little things. A million and one people's heads will explode and Trump has moved on to something else.

“Since taking office I have been very strict on Commercial Aviation. Good news - it was just reported that there were Zero deaths in 2017, the best and safest year on record!” Trump tweeted on Tuesday.

What part of that tweet is untrue? Read it literally, not with left wing inference. Yes it may be a little presumptive by some standards, but it is not untrue.

I like President Trump's tweets.

They're often hilarious and so true as to drive his detractors over the edge - Hurrah for President Trump, the guy who gets thing done.

Is Trump not ultimately responsible for the safety of commercial aviation? After all, the heads of the FAA and the TSA both ultimately report to him, do they not? Sure, he didn't do it all by himself, but it happened under his watch. The fact that it was posted here (and in the news article) as Trump "taking credit" says a lot. Why wouldn't they simply say that we had a record year for commercial airline safety and leave it at that, instead of trying to focus on our President's words.

Actions matter people, words not so much. Unless you are a snowflake who only cares about not offending anyone.

He could have also tweeted that not a single TWA plane has crashed from bad wiring during his first year in office.

That would also be true. President's do have consequences, unlike Clinton we have not had an airliner shot down by terrorists leaving NYC.

Correlation is not causation. Why do we lose the ability to apply that logic the minute the topic is no longer firearms? Why do liberals lose it with respect to pretty much everything?

I had a science teacher in high school who would at random times VERY loudly clap his hands together 3 times, then do nothing. One of the cheerleaders worked up the courage to ask him 'why did you clap your hands?', to which he replied 'it keeps the elephants away'. Predictably, one of the jocks said 'there are no elephants here'. And the teacher responded 'exactly'. This behaviour repeated for the whole year I was in his class.

Trump's tweets always remind me of Boss Hogg in the Dukes of Hazzard movie explaining "sleight of hand". And makes me wonder what he (Trump) was doing/working on while everyone was losing their mind over this tweet.

That President Trump annoys because he doesn't act like a cookie cutter politician is something the vast majority of Americans want - and why he was elected.

Politicians as a group are (at least at this point) useless, fearful to do their jobs, who as a group should be de-elected (my wish) and sent back to be the burger flippers they were originally destined to be or some kind of lacky-dom. Yes ma'm, if this shoe doesn't fit, we'll find one that does....triple eee and big enough for bigfoot, we've got it. Please wait, I'll find it...

Pols are awful people. I remember they existed in college and they were laughed at. Their need to be recognized was great though few liked them. Yeah, a few are now statesman, darn few, most like she-jack are self thought of as aristocracy by themselves, but are lower that whale excrement.

They aren't misunderstood. They're incompetent boobs, who should never have been where they were placed.

Our government is is filled to capacity with incompetent frauds like them and it kills them when President Trump exposes them.
