POLL Do you support Trump?

I completely believe that the US government needs to be completely revamped and revised before we can actually do any good for this country. But - taking that out of the equation, for now, I'd really love to hear people's (honest, respectful and mature) reasons why they do or do not support Trump. (or is unsure). Please, no disrespect or rudeness. He is our president and deserves at least the respect that position affords him (that does not mean we agree with him, but we shouldn't be slinging insults and such)

I support his impeachment.

Plainjane Level 6 Nov 4, 2017


I'm not radical. I don't believe in radical anything. I do believe in treating everyone with dignity and respect.

The problem is that the vice president may act less ridiculously, but he is even worse than Trump in every other respect.

I agree with that! We are caught between a rock and a hard place!

I'll drink to that!

I hope there is a double impeachment. But then I'm Australian, so we choose between 6-30 parties. Six primary parties (liberal and labor for us) and about 23-30 total political parties. America has more than two too. Those seats get bought off in America as well.

In Australia our head of state is symbolic, in theory all the power of a military dictator, in practice a figurehead rubber stamping government. We have a kind of preferential voting called instant runoff for our House of Representatives that eliminates the candidate with the lowest result and redistributes theit vote to theor next choice of candidate. This repeats until someone gets over 50%. It is effectively a series of run off elections. This often means that the candidate who got the most votes doesn't win, but rather the candidate most can live with, the least worst option. Our Senate is elected by a form of preferential quota system that sometimes leads to some strange outcomes, but does tend to shift power away from exclusively major parties.

The point of all that is that the system is specifically set up to prevent a Trump or a Hitler gaining a position of power

I'll smoke a blunt to that

Me too. I'll throw the party after impeachment!

@Harleyman Wait a second. I think you have your "arrogant idiots" backwards. Trump's accomplishments so far have been to neuter the EPA, destroy our credibility as honest brokers in the Middle East by recognizing Jerusalem as capital of Israel, show that he's just as unstable as Kim Jong Un when it comes to being head of a nuclear power, and pass a tax cut which gives most families LESS THAN a $100 tax cut while giving billionaires further millions (all while claiming to be a champion of the middle class). Color me unimpressed, except by his ability to delude his followers and possibly himself, assuming he believes his own lies.

The list is to long to dwell on, put simply his actions have diminished any aide for the poor,ill,children and middle class for the benefit of the top 1% of the population . In addition, his actions have disgraced us in front of the rest of the world and has raised the threat of nuclear war. His greed will permit drilling offshore and in National Parks which have been reduced in size for development. In total it will require years to repair the damage he has done..

@Harleyman Taking your critiques one at a time: The cost of regulation is highly debated and depends on the regulation youu're talking about. Are you referring to prohibiting oil exploration in ANWR? The cost of oil and gas is still half what it was in the Bush years, due to declining demand (partly from those idiotic hybrid cars that the Obama administration pushed for further development on). Are you referring to prohibitions on coal "mining" by just b lasting the top off of mountains? People who live near mountains with coal in them think those regulations were a good thing. Protecting the environment produces an intangible public good that can't have a dollar amount placed on it. Nobody "gave" anything to Iran. Iran's own assets were unfrozen. (I wonder how you felt about President Reagan's sale of TOW missiles to Iran in exchange for their influence in releasing hostages in the 1980s? Good American capitalism?) Your careless use of the conjunction "and" makes it seem that President Obama, not Iran, supported Morsi. I'm sure you didn't mean to give that impression. Mohammed Morsi is far from the first unsavory character that was tied to a foreign regime whom the U.S. has supported. If you examine the puppet government we tried to usher into place in the wake of our invasion of Iraq in 2003, you'll find that we had chosen Achmed Chalabi, who was persona non grata in Jordan due to his activities as an embezzler and fraudster, and who almost immediately took up his own alliance with Iran when he didn't become president of Iraq. Jerusalem is a divided city. East Jerusalem is Palestinian. Israel CLAIMS "an undivided Jerusalem" as their capital, against international law. It's questionable exactly HOW viable Israel's democracy is, since the country is still in the habit of invading and annexing neighboring territory belonging to other nations and claiming that their God promised it to them; therefore it belongs to them. And while Israelis who move to this "new Israeli" land can still vote, the people who now live involuntarily in Israel can't. Because they would almost certainly vote to give the annexed land back to the people it belonged to. I support Israel unquestioningly when they are under attack by other nations. I categorically denounce terrorism. I also categorically denounce Israel's annexations of their neighbor's land and their bombing and shooting offensives against Palestinians, which is nothing better than state-sponsored terrorism.

Final point: Take a deep breath on your "course to civil war" rhetoric. And then drop it.

Girl I like you

I believe those missiles were impregnated with computer viruses that set the Iran missile program many years. The amount of hybrid cars is not as many as you would claim there is about the same ratio as nationalized health care around 7%. O bomb gave the farmers in Syria guns to protect themselves hence arming al qaeda. Then when the taliban nerve gassed Syria the O bom admiration refused to help because all the farmers (wink wink al qaeda were armed). To boot O bomb pulled the troops out of Iraq before that a sugnifiate Iraq military could be trained and in turn the terrorist regime began. Going green is important what happens when companies are forced to comply, they close up shop and move costing in some cases thousands of jobs. Wait till the companies start the mass exodus from California because Jerry Clown Brown forced them to go green. They forced Amazon out a few years back killed something like 10,000 jobs.

@Plainjane A man who has throughout his life not treated people with dignity and respect- especially women, does not deserve any respect. And to address peoples view that he deserves it because he is President, that is utter rubbish. He is an animal, and it is a travesty and immoral that people actually voted for him.

@Pauled I'm actually not sure if you were agreeing with me or trying to insult me. When I wrote that reply, I was actually responding to Harleyman, who was a Republican/Trump sympathizer who I felt used the word liberal as an insult. He recently deleted his account so his comments have been deleted as well.

@Plainjane I wasnt insulting you at all. I was merely stating that just because he is the President does not mean he should be respected. He deserves no respect and deserves every insult that is thrown at him. Regardless of him being President, he is an animal.

@Plainjane If Ive read your post out of context, as I havent seen this deleted accounts comments then I apologise. Although I don't believe Trump deserves any respect, it wasnt my intention to insult you.

@Pauled. It's all good ! smile001.gif


I joined this dating site in HOPES there were less conservatives here.

I have walked away from family and friends who support trump and will refuse to date anyone who does. Not being snobby but its more of a moral decision than a political one

SunnySmiles Level 6 Oct 6, 2017


Hello Ronjames438! I am brand new here. How are you?

I agree. I have a difficult time with people that defend him. And, quite frankly, I get literally sick when I see or hear him. And, yes, I cried like a frikkin baby when I woke up to find he won. How could we allow this to happen? All because people hated Obama so much simply because of 2 things - he is African American and a Democrat. No other basis. Sometimes I'm just ashamed to be an American, and more& more often ashamed to be Human.

join the club, most atheist are not trump supporters. I thought I would not have to deal with the trump mentality here as well.

I cried too. The world has just gone mad. All the racists crawling out of the woodwork feeling empowered by this monster ????

I hear you. I desire to get along with everyone but when they start to tell how they support a guy that is so screwed up it makes my skin crawl. I usually just let it go over my head and flee as soon as possible...LOL

For me it's not a moral decision to not date Trump supporters - it's that I wouldn't want to date someone that stupid.

I've lost a few friends because their racism started showing once trump got into office.

hi sunshine! when are you going to let me sweep you off of your feet and bring you over my threshold! lol got any new post lately?

There is nothing wrong with making a principled decision about what sort of people you want in your life.

I'm from Texas but no friggin way am I conservative and I don't live near Austin!!!

It really doesn't pay to be either/or. Both sides are all about the money.

There's a lot of Trump bashers out there and there are a few things that I don't like about him however I think he's a man that's looked at politics just like the rest of us and realised that nothing is being achieved, this is exactly the same in Britain, Our NHS is still in a mess but nothing happens, the amount of people that's living rough on our streets is growing but nothing happens, the divide between rich and poor is getting bigger but nothing happens and we are still being blown up by mad twisted Islamic terrorist and nothing changes, Trump has come into power with good intentions of changing things for his country, instead of using a feather duster to get things down he's decided to take a firmer hand and take stock of things, he is now realising that you can't just snap your fingers and do this because of congress, the Trumpy bashing media who are able to control the minds of the masses won't let him speak or move without attacking him, I am disappointed with his take on climate change however I think he's more concerned on other issues at the moment and maybe in time climate change will be addressed, he was voted in so I think everyone should allow him to run the show for the time being, sadly people seem happier with leaders that do nothing much !

Trump is a piece of shit, plain and simple.I have some goofy right wing "sheeple" in my family, but no way I'm gonna go along with their beliefs, I am 54, and this is about the most messed up Congress I have ever seen!

@delboy2kent I hope as time goes on it becomes clear to you that Trump has nothing but his own self interests in mind when he chose to run for president. He had no grand plan beyond feeding his ego and his bank balance. He's literally incapable of seeing beyond that. It's called narcism and he's a textbook case.

... fox news is media, unfortunately breitbart is also considered media, the kiss his ass more than the other mainstream media “bashes” him... it’s just mainstream listens to Main Street America. So far as his good intentions.... bwaah... he has none. He is a shill for Koch brothers and the wealthiest 10% of America. He’s literally destroying America... he’s an embarrassment. @delboy2kent

@SunnySmiles your "I Cried. . . " reminds me of the day after Trump was elected. I teach at en elementary school with predominantly Native American students. The day after trump was elected. Several students also said they they cried after Trump was elected. I told them I was similarly affected by the nightmarish outcome. Some students (with what I remember as fear in their eyes) said they were afraid to come to school that day because Trump was elected. We have several hard core theists teachers and they were joyous about president Trump. Two continues to valiantly support trump.

Spot on. I don't understand how anyone who has the intelligence to renounce religion can support such an excuse for a human being . It beggars belief. This is a man who supports division, racism, greed, and who has been given power by people who deny evolution,global warming and believe that we lived alongside dinosaurs.

@delboy2kent Our situation is nothing like America. Yes we have the greedy self serving tories, but they are nothing compared to the parasitical Republicans. Our NHS is being destroyed by the Tories. As for Trump giving a shit about his own people, with his track record he cares nothing for anyone but himself. The Republicans monopoly of power (even when they are not the government) has to be diluted, and this dangerous child has to be impeached asap.


I'm an Independent who became a Democrat so I could vote for Bernie in the Primary. I'd rather date a Christian than a Trump supporter (and that's really saying something).

I love this response

isnt that the truth LMAO

I almost became a republican so I could vote anyone other than tRump.

hi there I like your commrents! I bet trump says he ia a christian as well?

At least he's still an active senator (Bernie Sanders).

Most of them do support Trump, though, sorry to say...

Man that would be a tough decision. Which would be the lesser of two evils.

Haha might have to agree with you in that one.


Sam Harris said it best.....
''He strikes me as a distillation of everything that is wrong with the American character, if you take our materialism, our ignorance about the rest of the world and our satisfaction in our ignorance, our overconfidence, our pretention to greatness even when we are actually being merely petty, our vanity, sexism, boorishness, narcissism. (&hellipsmile009.gif A kind of childishness that doesn’t have the virtues of childhood, it’s a kind of malignant childhood that’s all boastfulness and ‘’me, me, me,’’ without any of the curiosity or sympathy that you meet in actual children. He is the living embodiment of the a kind of American grotesque, It’s almost as if he’s a kind of golem that has been conjured by the worst things that have ever been said about us as a country, like if he can’t grope it or put gold letters on it doesn’t exists…'' Probably the best description I've heard yet.

Flowerchild Level 4 Oct 26, 2017

Exactly what they did say on New Zealand news: he personifies everything people hate about the USA. Like: the worst aspect of the USA.

This is an excellent distillation of the rotting, worm-eaten essence of who, what and whom Trump represents.

Do you mind if I steel this?

That is exactly what I saw in him in the 80's when he was first in the media. Never liked him for all these reasons. A poor excuse for a human, and then they make him president, makes me ashamed to be American right now. He's done more damage in 1 year than anyone ever has in 8. And the fact that he receives support from his colleagues shows just what opportunists they are.

The Ugly American, in fact, but with no brains at all.

Share it with the world!@ATCoffey


Trump is the antithesis of presidential. He is nothing beyond a petulant spoiled toddler who has never been required to grow up. He surrounds himself with yes-men (or women), and is incapable of taking criticism. He seems to think the United States is a junior high school, for clearly he has never matured beyond puberty.

PhantomMarquis Level 3 Oct 19, 2017

If he hadn't been born into money, he'd be nothing more than just another broke, loudmouthed, con man from Queens. He'd probably have done time by now.


When Drumpf entered the race for President, I had a visceral negative reaction and nothing has happened since to change that. I'm offended by every indecent and immoral action he has made, I.e., his mockery toward a man with a physical disability, his inability to respect any woman ever, his determination to trample the Constitutional rights of anyone who opposes him and, last but not least, his inability to tell the good guys from the bad guys (white supremacists) and further inability or unwillingness to call them out. He is a disgrace to the principles of our Country,

I do not support trump, and I do not welcome him in my country.

Keith_Gilbert Level 3 Nov 19, 2017

Harleyman forgets how the US supplied NAZIs with weapons in the first place. That is why " paper clips " are banned now.

My mother was from England and my English grandfather and uncles fought against the Nazis. Yes, we Americans came in the end - thank goodness, but please remember we didn't do it alone.

@Harleyman Roosevelt in no way compares to Trump. Inviting Trump would be like inviting Hitler to their country. I may be one of those bleeding heart liberals but my parents are not, THey have voted REpublican all their lives and are ages 94 and 81. They voted for Trump and have no problem expressing regret and wish he were impeached

I don't think any civilized countries do either.


I find it hard to believe (but not really) that a site that touts reason and logic can still have members who support one of the most insane, unreasonable, hateful and dangerous misanthropes of our time. Evidently emotion still reigns supreme in some peoples mind.
Do I support this person - I am not a violent person but people as Trump deserve the same end as il Duche (Mussolini - executed by firing squad, hung upside down along with his mistress and-with the Italian mode of emotional excess left in the street for people to, lets say, perform certain bodily functions upon). I guess I am being emotional in this regard.

Thankfully there are very few here. I can overlook them if you can. They’ll find they’re unwelcome eventually & go away.

@Tampatomgirl I live in a very rural county (composed of >150 islands) of which is surrounded by more rural counties. They are all strongly Democratic. It depends on what county and, more importantly, what state.

Being a business person I could never have voted for Trump. Anyone who doesn't pay people they hire to do work for them and file bankruptcy not one not twice but 4 times and who has been sued as many times as Trump has should be banned from ever owning a business. Many small business owners were put out of business due to his non payment for work they had already done. No wonder there weren't a bunch of his fellow NY business owners standing up and endorsing him.


I do not support Trump at all. Not only does he not deserve the position that our outdated electoral college gave him, he is unworthy of the respect the office normally affords its holder. His campaign should have been over the minute he mocked the disabled reporter, and his continued lies are weakening not only our international stature, but our entire political system. He has not passed any legislation since assuming office, instead he is relying on executive orders to implement his plans. This tells me he wants to rule by edict instead of consensus. His insistence on evicting immigrants and on building the wall of separation at the Mexican border tells me he is an isolationist, totally ignoring the rich history of how this country was founded and became strong. Since his campaign and subsequent election, we have regressed as a society, undoing much of the social progress achieved during my lifetime (I'm 5smile027.gif. Trump is a cancer of the body of America, and needs to be removed as soon as possible so the healing can begin.

KaraokeKen Level 3 Oct 19, 2017

Mr Popovitch sums Trump up very well with this:

“This man in the Oval Office is a soulless coward who thinks that he can only become large by belittling others. This has of course been a common practice of his, but to do it in this manner—and to lie about how previous Presidents responded to the deaths of soldiers—is as low as it gets. We have a pathological liar in the White House: unfit intellectually, emotionally, and psychologically to hold this office and the whole world knows it, especially those around him every day. The people who work with this President should be ashamed because they know it better than anyone just how unfit he is, and yet they choose to do nothing about it. This is their shame most of all.”-Gregg Popovich

I was a plaintiff in the Trump University Lawsuit. We won, he lost to the tune of $25 Million pay back. The man child conned me out of $7,000. That swindle alone most will understand why I didn't vote for him, then add to the mix his Cray Cray approach to life and leadership and my objections to him are dyed in the wool and cast in concrete. NO I DON'T SUPPORT HIM.

FreethinkerOne Level 2 Oct 19, 2017

Thank you for your service. You are a hero.

He lost nothing in that lawsuit! I doubt you got your money back. 25 million is a drop in the bucket compared to what he raked in. Can’t wait to see him lead out of the White House in handcuffs!

Paul628 Level 7 Oct 6, 2017

I’m sorry, but the man has mental (and sexual) issues that should have disqualified him. He has NO IDEA what he is doing. He’s an amateur trying to act presidential, and doing a lousy job of it. Many from his administration are under indictment for collusion with Russia against the United States, and HE could potentially be indicted at some point. But, here’s the kicker. Do you REALLY want this golf happy clown impeached, and replaced with #ChristianShariaLawPence!?? HE scares me more than Trump! #CarefulWhatYouWishFor

Daco2007 Level 2 Nov 4, 2017

I feel the same. Pence scares me more than Trump. We can only hope that the indictments take them both out. But then what? Ryan??? How far down that list do you go until you get somebody worthy of the position?

Why because you watch CNN??

@Ravenwolfcasey I don't watch CNN, OR #FauxNews!

@trasinater Sad but true. I just hope we can vote that entire hot mess OUT OF OFFICE in 2020. But I won't hold my breath. Thanks to SCCOTUS (Supreme CORPORATE Court of the U.S), and their "Citizens" United decision, the Kochs and other billionaires, now largely control the system. I, sadly, expect to see #ChristianShariaLawPence elected in 2020, if the plutocrats succeed in bringing down MUELLER before he can complete his investigation.


trump is the most dangerous man in the world.

drupert1 Level 2 Oct 18, 2017

He is a spoiled, entitled, opposititional-defiance-disordered, psychopathic teenager with an endless arsenal of nuclear flame throwers at his disposal.

Trump was just a disgusting show-off until he ended up in the position of the most powerful person in the world. He didn't even think he would get the job. He would not have gotten it without massive social-persuasion from the Russians, and the rabid support of the American press. Trump is a "celebrity", and they capitalized on that, to the world's utter detriment....


I do not believe I need to respect him by proxy. He is not my president.

He's still a pig and I do not have to respect him.

He is the duly elected President of the United States, but that in and of itself don't mean he is worth of any respect from anyone. That REALITY is the real bitch.

@RCAngel thank you for that response. I was struggling for the high ground


I support him and his entire administration being sent to Guantanamo and waterboarded until they each die of a stroke or heart attack.

No, he is not my President, and OP, please be aware, we don't all live in the USA. He deserves no respect as he shows none to anyone who disagrees with him, either within the USA or that much larger territory, that part of the planet that is not the USA.
The USA have had many past presidents, some better than others, some quite awful, but they have all been statesmen. How on Earth did a large minority of USA electorate think that Trump was fit to follow on from President Obama?

OrmRich Level 3 Oct 20, 2017

There was nothing 'large' about how he was elected, other than gerrymandering. The majority of the US citizens, minority included, did NOT vote for this prick. He did NOT win the popular vote, not by a long shot. This is another aspect of our inadequacies and lack of actual democracy.
