    Whoa wait a sec, which is it, "small part of the video and not discussed anywhere else" or "quite influential"?
    Can't be both and WE (you and I) both know she IS the face of the Trump Black Wing.

    It doesn't matter if she's only on ten minutes, she is who a lot of these folks are listening to when they're not listening to Trump.
    She IS what Trump hoped Omarosa was GOING to be, only he now realizes that it was better to outsource instead of hire from the Apprentice cast.

    It was during that little get together between the two conservative women and the group of people who don't like Trump.

    1. The two conservative women seemed to be concerned with "what Trump is doing" and they support what he is doing.

    2. The others, especially that fellow with all the hair, seemed to be concerned more with "what Trump is saying" and they dislike Trump for that.

    This is right in line with most of the people here on DP. You have those who are obsessed with what Trump is saying (or with what the media tells them he's saying) and those who are concerned with what Trump is actually doing and how it affects our country, our economy and people's lives.
    Actually what Trump is doing is worse that what he says.....

    Iíll buy that argument when it comes to congress members and judges. Yeah, all that matters with them in regards to my life is how they vote or how they rule. But the President is the leader of our country. He represents us on the global stage. He speaks for us as a nation. So yes, what the President says ABSOLUTELY matters. I have always believed that and I am not going to cut this particular President slack on that just because he doesnít how to think before he speaks.
    Actually, I think think it IS new, but it's new because we are seeing a President who actually does (or tries damned hard) to do what he told everyone he wanted to do. Before, all a President had to do was talk about what he wanted to do. Didn't matter if he did nothing.

And although the reporter in this did give his own views he also didn't let it interfere with what the story was about. Something you don't see too often anymore.

    Well let's give them all a hand

    Job gains for minorities and getting off food stamps is all because of Trump. There are no racial differences in Conservatives views, IMO.

    I'd say you must be out of touch. Trump's actions are pleasing me.

    Yes, it is sad, because, it's going at a rate that it is causing a 'boom/bust' type of economy. That means, when the stuff hits the fan, its going to be miserable for the folks that think they are getting to 'keep their own money', since they are the ones that will suffer the most.
