    False premise. Trump is not a dictator. Even the most socialist democratic candidates are not very socialist(and the least socialist of the bunch is leading in the polls).

    He is trying to be, and the left is going further that direction. I never said we were there, I said that we are being pulled in those two directions.

    I can't imagine how detached from reality you'd have to be to believe Trump is a dictator.

    He's running around, pretending he can order American Companies out of China and such. Sure as heck thinks he's one.

    Obama ran around doing executive orders when the Congress refused to do what he wanted. It's a Constitutional provision of the President. The Supreme Court decides if the executive order is Constitutional. Obama got shot down several times as will Trump and any President. So, stop acting like it's only Trump. All Presidents use executive orders. As far as what is happening with American Companies, he's not ordering them out of China. You show me anywhere where he tried to do so? See, this is what the Left does. They lie about something and then act as if it's true when they say it to themselves enough times. What Trump has done is made it harder for American based companies to stay in China with tarrifs. Same with Mexico and Europe. But, that is a decision the companies make as whether they can financially stay in China or "such."

    Trump is not trying to be a dictator. Dictators don't lower taxes and get rid of thousands of regulations over businesses. They take over the businesses. Now, Sanders is one scary person. He is a blatant socialist with the demeanor of a Dictator. He actually wants to dictate how we live our lives from cradle to grave. Pocahontas is saying the exact same things. One scary drunk.

    Ah, the truth does hurt, doesn't it?

    ....better off without them. The vast amounts of money made and stolen by China from the United States, year after year, for decades, will and must STOP. Our great American companies are hereby ordered to immediately start looking for an alternative to China, including bringing..
