  1. that money is not going on the wall he is obsessed with, it is going into his pockets he is robbing this country blind. He and his children are filling their coffers with our tax dollars. He charges the government for everything he does, he goes back and forth to his golf courses every weekend. Making the secret service pay to protect him, when they have to take him out of that office by force he will have made a killing on the American people , him and his greedy children. I hope the congress will come down on him like a ton of bricks and not let him get away with the thievery he is perpetrating on every institute in this country. He knew he would become a billionaire if he won the presidency, and now he has become one. He gave up that measly salary because he knew he was going to get quadruple that amount when he started stealing. Get him out!

  2. No failed policies.

  3. IN ONE FORM OR ANOTHER THEY WILL PAY! THE WALL IS NATIONAL DEFENCE ! 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  4. Billions and billions and billions and billions

  5. North Korea & Russia are firing 🚀 and we will be caught with our drawers & panties down!😞😞😖

  6. All those who attend bozos rally that chant Build That Wall names should be taken and places where they live and work and start garnishing there wages to pay for their wall they chant for

  7. Didn't you know that's the character of a casino operator to make you believe you are winning while he takes your money he's only doing what you voted for

  8. I'm surprised President Trump didn't divert those funds to build Trump hotels all along the border and charge the U.S. for housing detainees.

  9. Maybe that's his problem "he's admitting to AIDS". One too many in the poop hole? He'll fit right in at Leavenworth.

  10. why the Americans are so racist and why they are going to Mexico to vacation. better we should go with the Russians and Chinese hahahaha and let them put their military bases in Mexico that would make the Americans invade Mexico?

  11. Promise broken and military weakened

  12. A serious request from an Englishman in the midst of the turmoil I'm unable to do anything about:

    Vote vote vote…don't see the landslide, MAKE the landslide… I emplore each and every American reading this comment, do not expect the defeat. It's farcical, but if only a few good men do nothing, evil will prevail – to paraphrase.
    Again, just because he's a joke, and so very unlikely to be voted into power again; suppose most sane people think the same, few people vote, and he may win again… Radical supporters all show up in force. Don't let this happen again… please…

  13. Deucebag Blubber Mouth constantly gives the government and the world the middle finger on a daily basis…….. and receiving the blessing from Diablo to get away with any-thing!

  14. The games continue. Its time to start petitioning to get an immediate removal from Offices to show these People that prejudice and discriminatory practices to keep People at a standstill is over. Immediate removal for People who do not look at the entire Country. They only focus on their People when they are in Office. I am sick and tired of these People's blah blah blah excuses. No One wants to hear their lies any more. When they have violated People's rights in their homes and their Children. There is not a debate when they are caught obsessively after being told to back off. That's an attack by very ignorant, annoying People. They should be forced to go to another place for causing so much destruction and damages because of their repeated practice of lies. Who cares about years ago when right now August 7, 2019 is when People are being violated by these irritating People. No One has tripped on not being around them yet. For sure I can care less about being around their nonsense. I want these People away from me in Oakland desperately trying to get in my business of what I own. These People have a bad habit of that mess. No One cares what they think.

  15. FFS. When are you people going to LOCK HIM UP?!?!? 😂😂😂

  16. Even though he robbed us in our country, his supporters and his Republicans STILL supporting him! Impeach that clown already!

  17. It’s time for all the media to stand up to trump and call him for what he is. What everybody waiting for.? He is a total incompetent moron and bringing this country down in the process. Enough is enough with this. I hope that Pelosi is relaxed from her long vacation to get the proceedings started. We have had enough about Trump and his lunacy.

  18. Every money trump asked Congress he stole it again

  19. MORE like stealing billions of tax payer & gov't money for personal gain….lock them up and stop the massive kleptocracy!

  20. What concerns me is, is his base so base themselves that they don't see anything wrong with him stealing funds that is there alotted by American tax payers to help the US, now being siphoned to build the wall that HE said that Mexico was going to pay for???? So like the Tariffs the Wall is being paid for by American Tax Payers…

  21. @AM
    If Dumpty wasn't behind this blatant cash grab, and on first read, one could easily think that the Pentagon didn't really need this money and should have its budget trimmed.
    However, when you look at what this money had been purposed for by the Pentagon before Dumpty jumped on it, which was to better the lives of the People in our military services by building schools for their children, etc., you can see Dumpty's Big Lie.
    Dumpty wants the Wall solely for his reelection.
    So, great start to your program to point that out.
    Also, Dumpty's money grab is really revealed to be shameless, which Dumpty obviously is and always has been long before Putin helped him herd the baseless 'Base' into voting for him in 2016.
    Don't forget to emphasize that Dumpty has done nothing but praise and glorify Putin's Commie Way ever since while accusing the Dems of being Commies!!!
    While my inclination is to not report anything Dumpty does (other than to break the law and the expectations of his Base), you have to continue monitoring him to find out what's being done in the dark that nobody can see.
    Why did the 'Bulldog' NY US Attorney's office quietly drop its investigation after arranging to have Michael Cohen get the longest prison sentence of everyone except Manafort?
    Are you ready for the Manafort Pardon?
    Dumpty is in the process of imploding as you can see from the economic problems as well as his manic, persistent SharpieGate activities, and that will only intensify when Dumpty sees he's losing some of his '15 minutes of fame'.
    Attend Dumpty's Pressers but, either change to another show midstream and/or don't report it at all unless Dumpty is braking some new law.
    Dumpty's herded the Dems into a circular firing squad and the Repugs into firing nothing but blanks, and so we, the People are relying on you, the Fourth Estate to frustrate him as much as possible until 2020 when he's voted from office to the Docket.
    Finally, make sure the 2020 candidates all pledge NOT to pardon him or any of his Perps once they get elected so we know whom to vote for. Nixon had that deal, and it enabled him to attempt a comeback.
    Just like Winter, 2020 is Coming!!!
    Wo0dy

  22. Im so sick of everyone blaming our immigration  problems on Trump. The border has been a bad place for alot longer than his term in office. Don't get me wrong I am not an Trump  supporter at all any more. He has shown his stupidity along with his true self. What I'm trying to say is, we have to actually find an answer.

  23. How many american just hates trump voice and hates looking at him daily.
    Hit likes thumb up if you feel this way too.

  24. He going to put it in his pocket

  25. ANYWAY WHAT IS HIS WIFE SAYING AND WHERE IS SHE AT Sheppard don't show up until they going out of the country and is Democrats saying ya'll don't need to give this man any money he don't know how to handle money he is a waster and he needs to see a doctor. Praying for the man

  26. He is not building no wall IN HIS POCKET IT GOES

  27. Remember that during the government shutdown Congress designated the same amount of money that Trump refused to take within his negotiations.

  28. Trump is good for America.

  29. What happens to the funds he has received in his endless campaign? Does he keep them?

  30. The sad thing about this is that anyone believed that "Mexico will pay for it" lie to begin with. And voted for him. Even without my previous research that showed Trumpster was a serial liar, I knew that was totally not happening.

    Why there are any Americans who still like this liar and utter failure is a mystery to me. Stuck in an information bubble? Ignorant of reality?

  31. Strong on a wall but weak on military.

  32. He should sale some of his property for a few $.Show he is in it to win it.

  33. Turmp will build the wall then win the wall is finalized he will impose a 5 percent tariffs on Mexico to pay for the wall msn nose this the reason msn is attacking turmp this way about the wall is because he is keeping is campaign promises the democrats and Deepstate controls cnn msn and they are desperately trying to hide the fact that turmp is keeping is word

  34. WOW! Just before the holiday season. That will put a dent in our military family's celebration. And the most important . . . Joy.

    I am very sorry military for the damage this president is doing to you when you do not deserve it . . . at all.

    Make me president of these united states of the americas and I would give, active duty military only, a 20 percent pay raise on my second executive order shortly after swearing in – within 5 minutes. I would make it better and even more when I will make sure that you only pay 5 percent tax on that income. The lowest bracket in the nation. No one would pay fewer tax levies than my – 'our' – military. Your primary residence would be completely tax free and I am positive the states would cooperate. Remember, NOT guard and reserve.

    Vote for me and I would end the corruption in the capital and all state capitals. I am pretty sure the military would help me with that.

    Capeesh?

  35. Anything to do with the mafia guy selling all the concrete that Trump been buying for years?

  36. hush little snowflakes.

  37. How much money did this halfwit give the military?
    600 million plus?

  38. Seriously ya gotta giggle, the worlds top negotiator is also the worlds top bullshitter as if the world didn't know, but,but,you guys are the only sleepy people who tolerate this imbecile.

  39. Ari is a soft soyboy socialist who never invites any type of real conservative on his show. I will vote for Trump cause I love the wall, build it bigger! Add another foot! And the wall shouldn't have to stop them. The real goal of the wall it should be big enough to slow down 99% of people so they eventually starve, get heat exhaustion and die. So you build 2 walls. One high wall right on the border. Another slightly shorter wall 10 miles inland. So if anyone gets over the 1st wall in the desert… 99% will die just a mile or 2 after wall 1. So I say let them all cross. I would even add lions in cages that would come out of the ground that are targeted by drones in the air. If any get within 3 miles of the 2nd wall I'd have some alligators around the 3 mile perimeter. This is how you stop illegal immigration.

  40. The Wall is being built. He has the right to move funds and he would not have to do this is the dems were not for Open Borders and destroy American National Sovereignty. It is being built and a Majority of Americans are behind him on every one of the Presidents Immigration Ideas.

  41. So your lies and half truths are just that. Lies and half Truths.

  42. tRump is probably going to personally steal money from the wall…

  43. That bloody Wall that #45 is so obsessed with. Over $ 3 billion for just 175 miles. And where is the $$$ coming from ? Military bases that urgently need upgrading (barracks, runways, hangers, hospitals, schools, etc). But the real 'kick in the balls' is $400 million redirected from the Puerto Rico rebuilding fund. So much for MAGA !!!

  44. Instead take the billions and billions of dollars that we give to Israeli military every year.

  45. GET HIM OUT!!!!!!!GET HIM OUT!!!!!!!!!!
    USA USES CONCENTRATION CAMP AS BACK IN GERMANY NAZI CAMPS. WAKE UP AMERICAN

  46. I think I’ve stumbled onto a den of vipers here. This site is definitely a blue site so conservatives be ware. This is a blood thirsty group

  47. Good maybe now Vets and millitary will see what he's about

  48. 3 billion from a 800 hundred billion dollar industry isn’t a big deal and I’m not a republican or Trump fan. MSNBC is crapshoot News

  49. So Congress, which keeps the purse for the USA, says no for the spending. The tangerine tyrant takes money from the military. This is legal how? Orange cultists have no conscience so I expect nothing reasonable from them. But how is this "executive" action permissible?

  50. What a world we’d have if our journalists approached each & every politician and every political statement like they now do with this orange madman! Do this each and every day and earn your 20k a day, even #bernie would appreciate being queried all the time. #doyourjoballthetime

  51. I think the schools on military bases are a lot more important.

  52. I cant wait till they start stealing American's lands around the border. I hope they are Republicans.

  53. Good the next Democratic President will divert 50% of military funding for climate change. I don't want to here a peep out of Republicans.

  54. President Donald Trump may have fabricated a loan to avoid paying taxes on nearly $50 million of income, Mother Jones reported in a bombshell investigation published on Thursday.

    The controversy appears to be related to the Trump International Hotel and Tower in Chicago and a shadowy shell company Trump owns called Chicago Unit Acquisition LLC. Media reports have found that the company does not earn revenue and is essentially worthless. Trump has said on his financial-disclosure forms that he owes more than $50 million to the company, which he controls.

    Trump and the Trump Organization have not commented much on the loan, but Mother Jones noted that the president, then a Republican candidate, told The New York Times in 2016 that he bought the loan from a group of banks several years ago and that instead of retiring it, he decided to keep it outstanding and pays interest on it to himself.

    A 2008 lawsuit cited by Mother Jones revealed that the majority of the project was financed by Deutsche Bank, which put up $640 million. A hedge fund called Fortress Investment Group also provided $130 million of funding. So in total, Trump owed a little over $800 million to both institutions.

    Mother Jones' investigation found that Trump was able to clear his debt with Deutsche Bank and Fortress Investment Group over the next several years but that Fortress ultimately agreed to accept just $48 million back for the loan it had made to Trump, which by that time was worth around $100 million.

    That means one of two things occurred:

    Fortress considered the loan repaid and forgave more than $50 million of debt from Trump, an action known as a discounted payoff. If that happened, the debt would be considered taxable income, and Trump would have had to pay as much as a 39% income tax on it.
    Trump bought the remaining debt using a corporation and "parked" the money there to avoid paying income taxes on it. This practice, known as debt parking, is legal as long as the borrower plans to repay the rest of the loan. It's illegal to engage in this indefinitely.

  55. I would voluntary increase my tax fees if we build a physical wall around don the KKKON . No door! … GLADLY!!!

  56. Wake Up. USA…He is taking money from yours pockets…he is stealing money….

  57. Good move by Trump!!!! Ya

  58. This lunatic should have no control of defense spending.

  59. The practice of "Robbing Peter to pay Paul" is probably what caused the guy to file bankrupty five times. Now here he goes again but at taxpayers expense. Someone, "DO SOMETHING" !!

  60. I would never vote for Trump but like Dave Chappelle I gave Trump a chance thinking that some good might come out of this but nooo, this is gonna be the worst four years that alot of people who voted for him are gonna regret, 4 whole wasted years of people's lives. The only thing I applaud Trump for is being a Christian even though he can't name one verse from the Bible……..at least he tried, I think.

  61. This is how he is making Mexico pay, by making them suffer.

  62. He's a joke…that's not funny, that's trump.

  63. TRUMP HAS MY VOTE AGAIN.

  64. Liberals are very upset Trump is building a wall to protect the country. They say Trump building a wall is political. So, was it not political when Democrats in congress did everything to prevent Trump from building the wall? People like Nancy Pelosi said the "wall is immoral." That was a calculated political tactic by Democrats at the detriment of the country. Democrats figured if they make Trump fail in a major campaign promise, he might not be re-elected. So leaving the country unprotected was fine with Democrats. These are sick people

  65. These poor so called reporters are about to cry , Trump keeps rolling along

  66. Watch the money that he plans for this wall. He will get paid and steal money from the wall. It will be bigger than this heist. Watch "The mother of all heists" on YouTube

  67. Wow, straight opinion piece trash. When did the news stop giving us news?

  68. Wonder if his supporters are happy that Trump is taking money away from schools dedicated to the children of military families.

  69. Donald Trump is pulling all of our troops a military assets out of Germany in order to reappropriate those funds to build the wall. What are the Democrats going to do about it? How can they do anything about it if they don’t see that it’s happening? The Russians are certainly happy.

  70. Trump proves the president has wayyyy too much power

  71. Here is a true fact, the money being redirected from the projects that help the soldiers & families, gone. The money being fed to the military industrial complex increasing. Profits for politicians who ensure this happens by way of campaign donations & offshore bank transaction increasing. The soldier who dies for the rich contractors profits, screwed. But these idiots will vote for the orange buffoon & racist republicans every time. Sad.

  72. And how does a 2yr old learn??
    Let him explain his actions… Thereby the logic will not escape him.
    (Am I the only one that sees something wrong here???)

  73. msnbc – fools and goblin's broadcast garbage

  75. My question is do Republicans just see some other news channels logo that is not "FOX NEWS" and just give it a dislike, because the president brainwashed fake news in their tiny brains thinking only one news channels is correct. Then again why are the Republicans so quiet that Mexico is not paying for the wall?👀😂

  76. How can anyone who shouted 'MEXICO' at the campaign rallies when Trump would ask "And who is paying for the wall?" —not feel the guy is a con? 'Art of Deal' smeeeel! where ARE the 'Deals'???

  77. Most incompetent POTUS ever !

  78. So what have you got to say now Donny Boy? You don't care how you get your stupid wall built as long as it's built. The American public will foot the bill one way or another. This ridiculous plan of yours is going to make absolutely no difference. The cartels will find a way around your barrier. The illegals will continue to come and the illegal drugs will continue to flow.

  79. High time for sane Amercns to lock this narcissist in some asylum and build a wall around him so that he wont be able to seek attention via tweeting and manipulate market for his family's gain after 2020

  80. Screw the fake news… BUILD THAT FUC*** WALL!! BUILD IT ANYWAY YOU CAN!!!!!! AND SCEW ALL YOU (WASTED SPACE POLITICIANS) All blow and no show!!! get er done president trump….. PRESIDENT TRUMP 2020😁

  81. And be sure he’ll use China’s steel

  82. In the gilded age robber barons would raid public coffers convincing the public they were doing so for the public good all the while stealthy proportion monies to their own interest

  83. It is a well known fact trump was hundreds of millions of dollars in debt to Deutsche Bank and is facing default on losing valuable Manhattan real estate if the loans weren't paid promptly

  84. They should take every last penny Trump has and pay the American people back for every red Cent he has stolen from the treasury including taxes he evaded for years

  85. Ha ha ha. Atleast we have something to show for the billions being wasted by those we elect! Hmm i would rather give to the wall then paying for illegals who broke the laws and come to get freebees. Pshhht! What a beautiful investment! We the people own the wall!!!!

  86. hope the military people vote him out

  87. MSNBC FAILED, TOTAL TRAITORS TO ALL AMERICANS, WHO OWN YOU MSNBC? THE CHINESE?

  88. Forget the wall, bin it. America has much more urgent problems than the stupid Trump wall.

  89. Trump is brilliant and making America great again

  90. Oh but mexico will pay for the wall, their country will pay and it will die 😛

  91. You guys need some outside the box thinkers.
    The truth about the wall has been missed by all of your rhetoricians. You're looking at it from the WRONG SIDE. Here's what's REALLY going on. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oKtKZ2tjtqg

  92. One can only laugh.

  93. So umm…out of curiosity, how would a non-rich person go about commiting tax evasion? Asking for a friend

  94. Walls walls more walls. Not expanding but isolating from whole planet? History proofs that these walls always failed to serve ? Why Mexico will pay when you hate other racial people? First Americans need to be protected from domestic terrorism then worry about victims from around the world

  95. I just got done watching youtube videos of the wall being built. Atleast you are finally reporting some good news. MSNPC reminds me of when the Iraqis were saying they were winning the war while american tanks rolled in the background. LOL

  96. Trump is like HITLER

  97. This isn’t news, but it is a lie. Come on…research something before you put up propaganda that is simply false. Just false. Smh. Mexico is putting forth money not a check but through other means. Wow!

  98. Lol kids were separated from parents in Obama’s era as well stop over dramatizing it now
