He didn't write this on his more often used therealDonaldTrump account which goes out to all of his deplorable supporters.  Wouldn't want to confuse them with mixed messaging.

 

It's likely he didn't write it at all. Maybe Ivanka did. There are no misspelled words.

The violent attacks in Portland on Friday are unacceptable. The victims were standing up to hate and intolerance. Our prayers are w/ them.

When I was that age I was out campaigning for Lyndon Johnson and Hubert Humphrey - - and getting into clashes with Goldwater people in school and at political rallies.

I understood very well what I was campaigning for and why.

And I would think that young people today are even more astute and aware of politics in the world around them than we were at that age.

At 17 I was secretary of Teen Age Republicans and we were campaigning for Goldwater.  We had a fairly large group that met twice monthly in addition to working at the Republican HQ office in town, going to rallies, etc.

Most members of the group were there because their parents supported Goldwater and were vehemently opposed to LBJ.  There was no Democratic counterpart to TARS, YR, etc.  A lot of them were there for the social aspects, which is why it fell apart in Dec. 1964.  At that time, there were no Republican elected officials in S.C. other than Thurmond who changed parties in 64.  Many years before Republicans were elected to local and state offices, so there was work to do if TARS had wanted to.

I was probably one of the few who had actually read Conscience of a Conservative (Goldwater's book re: his politics).

 

By the next election I was a senior in college and supported Eugene McCarthy.  Still have his book.

 

Teenagers today may be more aware than we were, but not so sure.  Think a lot of it is still peer pressure or trying to fit in with a popular group or activity.

My parents having a 13 - 14 year old protesting like that? Over their dead bodies.

I was closer to 12 and we were not protesting; we were campaigning for what we believed in.


My grandmother was a ward heeler - - they don't have those anymore. And I worked for her for a long time ringing doorbells and sometimes ringing phones up and asking for donations.

In a democracy everyone is supposed to participate. The earlier you learn how that works the better, so that you will continue to do so as an adult.

I've been a poll worker in my local precincts for the last 15 years-- local elections, state elections and national elections.

Coming from the background that I came from with my grandmother, it's just a natural thing for me to do.

Democracy only works if citizens participate.

BTW-- THE Goldwater kids would taunt us at school and at Humphrey rallies-- we never went to Goldwater rallies to harass them-- we just ignored them.
I was always taught to take the high road, but not to be afraid to stand up for what I believe in. LOL

You would THINK so, but based on what I overhear twenty and thirtysomethings say on political "hot button" topics indicates that's a fallacy. With them it all depends on which "app" they get their information from. :rolleyes:

So, PRINCESS----went out for LBJ too? Yeah, I was there, but when HH ran for the office, I shifted over to EUGENE McCARTHY.

At that time I was with Bobby Kennedy-- until the end.

And the end was when Frank Mankiewicz announced Bobby's death at the hospital.

Of course, that was Ben's father.

Freedom of choice I agree with, that been said are they wise enough to understand the world of politics - pros and cons of political objectives. When I was in the 8th grade, our only concern was student body president. Did I understood Washington - heck no!(barely do so today!)

Trump has tweeted that he has saved America billions of dollars on his trip and created millions of jobs.  If he is referring to NATO monies that is money that is supposed to be invested in each country's own defence and not handed over to the USA.  Though a lot of it will go to the U.S. military industrial complex to buy arms and that is what was at the heart of Trump's complaint.  He wants the Allies to buy more guns and tanks from the U.S.

Whenever you see the words 'sources say' in the fake news media, and they don't mention names...
 
....it is very possible that those sources don't exist but are made up by fake news writers. #FakeNews is the enemy!
 

 

Richard Roeper added,

Trump and associates are the main purveyors of Fake News, and their use of that term for anything inconvenient or damaging to him/then, are attempts to discredit these mostly legitimate stories. Unfortunately, Trump has been howling Fake News throughout the campaign, that his followers have been conditioned to believe him and dismiss these news reports, although more discerning and/or impartial viewers know better.

Will Trump supporters have a rude reawakening when his presidency gets derailed, not by these "fake news" stories, but by his actions and the actions of those around him.
