  1. Dear god – Trump has the vocabulary of a second-grader. On top of that, unsurprisingly, Trump is making a deal with the devil – his god.

    • You write like a 2nd grader. 😵💫

      You give throat like a professional FOX cockholster.

    • True Grit : I have a child in second grade right now, and I assure you that second graders these days have a MUCH wider vocabulary range than our president does when he’s speaking “off the cuff”. My second grader is also capable of carrying on a coherent conversation, with full sentences that actually make sense. 😆 I’d say you could compare Trump to my Kindergartener, but that child can also form complete sentences that make sense 98% of the time (let’s be honest; very few people of any age make sense a full 100% of the time 😉). Also, my kids aren’t racist or xenophobic, so there’s that.

    I’m sure the only reason Trump wanted to meet with them was so he could personally thank them for making his building the tallest in the neighbourhood.

  4. Thanks to Traitor Trump, the US was forced to extract a top-secret source from Russia after Trump revealed classified information to two Russian officials in 2017. The US was concerned that Trump and his administration routinely mishandled classified intelligence and that their actions could expose the covert source as a spy within the Russian government.

    Trump stunned the national-security apparatus and intelligence community when it surfaced that in an Oval Office meeting in May 2017 he shared the information with Sergey Lavrov, Russia’s foreign minister, and Sergey Kislyak, then Russia’s ambassador to the US.

    Traitor Trump’s egregious disregard of strict intelligence-sharing rules to protect highly placed sources “prompted intelligence officials to renew earlier discussions about the potential risk” that the source in Russia would be exposed.

    At the Oval Office meeting, which took place one day after Trump fired FBI Director Comey, Trump boasted to the Russians that firing “nut job” Comey had taken “great pressure” off him.
    That sounds like the reaction of a traitor breathing a sigh of relief.
    Comey had been spearheading the FBI’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 US election.

    Trump then went on to share with Lavrov and Kislyak intelligence connected to the Islamic State in Syria. The information came from Israel, which had not given the US permission to share it with the Russians because it could have compromised an Israeli source in the region.

    This is not the first time national-security officials have expressed concerns that Trump’s recklessness and incompetence could reveal sensitive information about US intelligence-gathering processes and human sources working abroad.

    Late last month, Trump’s tweet about US military information he received during a classified intelligence briefing earlier that day immediately set off alarm bells because it included a satellite photo of an Iranian launchpad that was of a much higher resolution and better quality than the commercial satellite images of the site that were publicly available.

    It also contained markers indicating that it was taken by USA-224,one of the US’s most secretive spy satellites. Intelligence officials said Trump’s tweet would be a gold mine for hostile foreign powers.

    Trump is clearly traitor, and a national security threat.

    The awful orange man trying to make peace with the evil cartel that satanicRonaldReagan started

  6. Trumps to busy taking military money at his over seas golf courses

  7. In order to get a photo op, Trump was willing to sully Camp David by holding a bogus meeting the Taliban, a meeting that would have accomplished absolutely nothing. We’ve seen this before with his photo-op stunts with Kim Jung Un, which accomplished nothing.

  8. Time for USA to surrender, pay reparations for their terrorism and war crimes , and run in defeat like Vietnam.

    Trump is not sane.

  10. People that supported Trump should’ve known that this was gonna happen. Either way it’s unavoidable no matter who us in charge.

  11. I didn’t think we were supposed to make deals with terrorists

  12. People, this isn’t the first time America made deals with the devils. There were quite a few times where the US has to do something about times like these.

  13. When this buffoon gets cornered and cuaght..its gonna be so fine.judgment cometh and that right soon..

    Crooked lowlife Mr Collusion Donald knows much about Secret Meetings , Voter Suppression & Taking money from Foreign States . ☝

  15. maybe he was asking the Taliban for the real story of 9 11

  16. “Ending dumb wars” got more votes than .”..and Mexico will pay for it.’

    Wow………the first good….and real….interview on MSNBC in some time…..they probably won’t have to retract this one. Nice to see real news instead of ” he’s a racist…” or “he’s a Russian..” let’s work on “he’s failing us…..” that is real…..

    • william Rupert : I don’t recall anyone in the mainstream news media saying Trump is a Russian, although it’s possible I missed that somewhere. An unwitting Russian asset, an intentional asset, or a blackmailed politician, yes, but not a Russian (although feel free to provide a link if I’m wrong). And the fact that Trump has behaved and spoken in a racist way for all of his adult life is kind of important, as his job is to lead a very racially diverse country. I’m not trying to say he is the first racist president, as history has clearly shown that that is not the case. But his racism is context for how he handles policy decisions, so it needs to be included and considered.

    • @ErykaSoleil Look at Lawrence O’Donnel’s “Russian Oligarch” or “Putin Bromance” MSNBC rants… Trump “unwitting” as you say? Yes! Absolutely. True news works better than fiction…..

  18. Thank God these talks are Dead and we should be thankful that Trump did actually turn from this direction! Obama, more than any other President, on the other hand; had regular (according to White House visiting records) meetings with the “Muslim Brotherhood” which MSNBC did not take him to taste on! In point of fact; Obama did more than any President to strengthen the hand of Jihad against America. Remember; he was instrumental in supporting the ‘MusIim Broherhood’ push to power in Egypt, actively supporting them and penalising those opposing their rise to brutal power. Obama also stripped from the Intelligence community all the very vital Islamic ‘Threat Doctrine’ material diligently put together by true patriotic officers with much blood and sweat. To add insult to injury; his administration removed many of these true, proven experts in this field! I have over 20 years researching Islam, its primary text, theology, schools of law, history, it’s ‘Threat Doctrine’ directed towards non-Muslims (Jihad) and everything contributing to the comprehensive Islamic Worldview. Between June 2001 and mid 2010 I regularly attended Islamic meeting for Muslims by Muslims, that I might understand what Islamic leaders were saying to, especially their men. I am telling you this to say the following; There is absolutely nothing to be gained for Peace (ie: Peace from a Western understanding) by negotiating with the Taliban but a whole lot to loose! Any peace talks with the Taliban are understood by them to be weakness, to be taken advantage of, that is all! If you understand Islamic groups like the Taliban you know that the meaning of ‘Compromise’ or ‘reconciliation’ when negotiating with the unbelievers (America, us); have an entirely different definition to our Western understanding. The Jihad group view these same terms as your weakness and as an opportunity to gain ground by non-kinetic, if not kinetic means. Their strategic aim or goal is always to eventually bring you to submit to the rule of Sharia, this is always the intention. The so called, by us ‘Peace Talks’ or ‘Reconciliation, Compromise’ efforts will be understood by them to be purely an opportunity for a ‘Tactical Manoeuvre’ under the umbrella of their overarching strategy to bring us under the rule of Islam, Sharia. War against the unbelievers (that’s us) theologically can NEVER HAVE AN END until all are brought to submission to Islam. There is a proven successful way to deal with this problem but not until we understand the ‘Threat Doctrine’ we are up against. Teza from Sydney Australia

  19. Uuuuuuuhhhhhh. Wait. A. Minute….wait. A. Minute….WHY. Are. WE….the. USA. STILL. In. That. Country??? Didnt. OBAMA. End. The. WAR. With. His. Magical. Wand. And. Brought. The. TROOPS. HOME??????

  20. Hey MSNBC, I wonder if you could run Trump’s “chopper talks” through a filter that removes his voice and leaves only the helicopter’s whine? Thank you.
