  • Trump is the King of Israel and the Chosen One.
    Trump should know.
    Let’s make America intelligent, sane, informed, inclusive, powerful, competent, compassionate
    Vote for a president who has a history of integrity and transparency, and leadership, and intelligent discourse.

  • "Yeeup yeeup i voted for trump"
    News Flash: Donald Trump thinks you're disgusting people. Rich people are his only friends. HE THINKS YOU ARE DIRTY.

  • These poor coal miners. I really feel for them. Did they think he was going to save their pensions? This is a man who stole the pensions of his own casinos. PPl must do their research before they vote. All of this BS was known about trumpee before the election no one who voted for him has the right to complain.

  • Miners voted for Trump and now they're getting crushed… Hillary would have taken better care of them. But… What are the chances they will vote for Trump again? I'm afraid chances are very high that they would support him again in 2020.

  • Don't feel nothing for these trumpzombie.. U voted for this monster for yall own personal reasons..not for the America.

  • I'm sorry if America and that includes me I live here in Florida if we don't all stand up like the people of Hong Kong 1.7 million people marching down the street if we don't do this together the rich people and their money will be more important than the rest of us people at work plain and simple until we shut down every Cola factory every you olfactory every every gas station shut everything down shut it down for a week don't show up for a week and show them who the boss is nothing will ever change the rich will get richer and the poor will stay for plain and simple

  • Why would any one believe this white house or this president , the lies told and broken promises. Even a blind squirrel can tell a bad nut.

  • " concerned about long term pension costs " Moscowman knows he should be worried about reelections. Trump can't do the impossible for mining companies. Big, Big loses coming… How will they be able to afford the Quid pro Quo campaign funds if they have to pay worker's pensions more while the companies are losing? Repug Congress forced Postal Service, Union workers, to 100% fund their pension, long term, for 75 years into the future in order to financially crush a Constitutionally Mandated(Article 1 Section 8)Company. Do rank and file, retired, union, coal workers even stand a chance? " We will have to see how it works out. If it doesn't , that's OK too." Trump.

  • The Democrats are trying to pass your bill and yet you vote for Trump, Moscow Mitch and the GOP. What do you expect.

  • Conald Trump strikes again. When your truth is built on lies, you really have no guarantee. Never trust a liar, above all, never trust a conman even if he looks like you.

  • Moscow Mitch and his "love u long time" Chinese wife will help Americans– NOT! Coal miners wake up gheeesh the writing is on the wall. Not the mexico one

  • Why do these folks feed into trumps bull 💩..my goodness this man and his administration doesn't care about this country other then themselves..

  • Trump and the republicans are attacking the Teachers' union shamelessly with lies. Read your opinion pages and you will see professional writers double teaming against the unions and their pensions!

  • Please don’t be fooled! Trump is comfortable with miners as well as farmers being complicit in their own demise! Do not continue voting against your own best interests!

  • Why don't I feel sorry for those coal miners..???
    Oh, right: they voted for Twump, despite all our warnings. And now they're realizing they got played for fools… Sucks to be them.

  • Is it pride that makes these Trump-supporting miners hold out hope that he will come through for them or just gullibility.

  • Here are the idiots who voted for Trump – got their Trump. WHat have miners won? Moscow Mitch will continue to block their pension protections…while giving out corporate tax cuts!

  • I'm sure they voted for trump, and are surely to vote for him again, even when it's obvious republicans will never support them.  Can't fix stupid.

  • You really think coal is coming back. Listen I have some swap land you might be interested in🤣sorry but for some reason you let Trump put his hands right in your pockets😢

  • MSNBC, Hello America!!!
    These courageous coal miners and their families should continuously be awarded their respective individual federally protected government pensions just like the first responders.
    If, President Trump and Moscow Mitch McConnell can approve billions upon billions for the Russian dictator Vladimir Putin,
    to receive "No-Bid government contracts"… they should spend time to honor federally protected government pensions …for the hard work achieved by American citizen retired coal miners who spent many decades, helping to fuel our nation.
    President Trump shouldn't ask people to vote for his
    re-election…when he's turned his back on them by not keeping his promises concerning protecting coal miner's federally protected government pensions. SHAMEFUL BROKEN PROMISES!!!

  • Trump will not help you. I worked in the pit for 22 yrs ..in Canada. Our fed government gave all miners with 10 yrs service, and black lung or any other work related full disability..gets a full comp pension. I went on disability in '95.,….. 22 yrs service,39 yrs old. I got full benifits until I was 65……33 yrs pension.Then I came off Disability/compensation benifits and went on Federal pension ,called "Canada pension benifits,until I die. …No arguments !! Rich Trumpka helped negotiate for us. We are in the same union. UMWA dist#26.

  • You shouldn't have voted for him !!!
    And they will vote for him again !!!
    Just like the welfare queen farmers wanting those handouts
    They will also vote for him again !!!..
    Oh well….

  • I'M SORRY TO SAY THIS I DON'T MEAN ANY HARM BUT YOU COAL MINERS ARE AS STUPID AS THE DAY IS LONG! CAN'T YOU READ?TRUMP HELPED THE COAL EXECUTIVES NOT YOU GET YOUR GDE!

  • IF YOU COAL MINERS WOULD LEARN HOW TO READ YOU COULD READ WHERE DONALD TRUMP TOLD MOSCOW MITCH TO BLOCK YOUR BENEFITS! THIS IS A TRAGEDY LEARN HOW TO READ. STUPID!

  • I LOVE COAL, BECAUSE IT HELPS MELT ALL THAT ICE & SNOW AND WE WONT NEED TO WEAR ALL THOSE HEAVY CLOTHES ANYMORE……

  • When 45 says he supports or wants to help something it’s not the people or their jobs or pensions he wants to help, it’s the company’s bottom line and executive payouts he wants to help.

  • When are these voters from coal mining states going to get it through their collective heads that if you want your pensions, tax revenue needs to be raised to shore up the solvency of the retirement program. The wealthy (yes, the coal mining executives) need to pay their fair share of taxes. Trump and every elected Republican passed massive tax cuts that only benefited the ultra wealthy. Trump screwed his voters. Yet rural areas STILL support Trump. You can't expect anything good when you don't know what or who you voted for. Ugh….

  • Anti-Trumpers all have the same things in common , they are either government union employees afraid of privatization, they are "non profit" fleecers, they are Anti-Christians, they have been indoctrinated in a college that fleeced their bank accounts but its not their fault, they are typically not good looking they all have short tempers and poor senses of humor and most of all will love this long run on sentence with poor grammar and will go insane after reading it.

  • Got a letter from the government today, they say I'll be getting a check in the mail soon to help with my struggles, all I want is my coal job back and my Lucy May .

  • After being abused by Moscow Mitch and President Lies Alot, these coal miners STILL are going to vote for Trump. You just can't cure stupid and ignorant.

  • So Trump is protecting the Owners of the Coal Companies from having to pay the Miners their Pensions and Healthcare Costs that they already Earned ? ? ? Trump Administration is Blocking the Federal Regulations that Garrentee the Coal Miners Pensions and Benifits as these regulations protect other Garrenteed Workers Protected Pensions Plans , talk about getting kicked below the belt when you least expect it , at retirement time , they voted for Trump , now their feeling their effects when they need it , at retirement , but Yes , Trump puts on the Hardhat , tells them he'll fight for them , and they believe him and they Vote for him , when all the while he planning to Stab them in the back , to support his Corporate Buddies, BUT TRUMP IS FOR THE WORKING MAN AND HAS THEIR BACKS , TO STAB THEM WITH , AH. . . OK . . . . SUCKERS . . . The Miners literally got the SHAFT .
