If it weren't for a higher number of minorities supporting Trump than past Republican candidates, there would be no President Trump right now.  So, pull your heads out of your @$$ and face a new reality.

Donald Trump won the U.S. presidency with less support from black and Hispanic voters than any president in at least 40 years, a Reuters review of polling data shows, highlighting deep national divisions that have fueled incidents of racial and political confrontation.

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-trump-polarization-analysis/trump-won-with-lowest-minority-vote-in-decades-fueling-divisions-idUSKBN13I10B

Trump was elected with 8 percent of the black vote, 28 percent of the Hispanic vote and 27 percent of the Asian-American vote, according to the Reuters/Ipsos Election Day poll.

Among black voters, his showing was comparable to the 9 percent captured by George W. Bush in 2000 and Ronald Reagan in 1984. But Bush and Reagan both did far better with Hispanic voters, capturing 35 percent and 34 percent, respectively, according to exit polling data compiled by the non-partisan Roper Center for Public Opinion Research.

And Trumpís performance among Asian-Americans was the worst of any winning presidential candidate since tracking of that demographic began


He got more than McCain and Romney did.  I take facts from the 21st century, not from a different era.  The fact is his increased support from them did put him over the top.  So, my point is for patriots to embrace everyone who thinks the same regardless of race.  White antifa sh!theads and the other crazies are the enemy, not folks of other races willing to stand with you.  Racism is dumb.  No need to have a KKK organization.  Proud boys is a group for example open to young men of any race who love western values (though I am not a member).  Everyone who love free speech, economic freedom, jobs, a middle class lifestyle, and an end to insanity and over the top political correctness ought to unite together. 

It's just a shame that many minorities continue to be lied to.  Look at all the places where Democrats have have had total control.  Absolute corruption, high crime, a lack of jobs, failing schools,and very little opportunity of any kind.  Why keep supporting them just because they scream 'racist' every once in a while to distract?  I guess Al Sharpton is raking in the cash though.

And yet you support a racist. I guess that makes you dumb.

Al Sharpton? That ain't the 21st century, kookie.

Just out of curiosity was the third stage of their initiation the deal breaker?

I don't comment on here a lot because I don't want to get into a big argument with people I don't know about politics, but I want to say one thing. Like him or hate him, Trump is NOT America. He does not represent all Americans. He can inspire fear and and promote isolationism all he wants, but one person does not make a country.

Example:

After the hate crime against the Jewish synagogue, a Muslim based group started a crowdfunding page for the victims. It has far exceeded their original goal in donations from people all over the country. Also, a massive crowd of people in the thousands came to the memorial to pay their respects as well.

THAT is America and that's why it is still a great country despite having problems (like every other country).
An extreme case of cherry picking. Have you forgotten about 9/11? What about the current invasion happening in Europe?

America is the greatest country.

The only thing that makes America great are people, not the economy, not the military,
not the advancements in science and technology, and not entertainment, but people. If
the people are not so great, then the country is not so great.
America is letting in a lot of people who aren't so great. That's the main reason I think America's greatness is declining.

WRONG! America has always produced trashy people who are less cultured and less educated than
most immigrants.

Lol, you could say bringing up 9/11 was cherry picking if you want to make every example into "cherry picking".

Now that the Democrats have taken over the house, Trump will now
be on a leash. Therefore I will lift my travel boycott to the USA even
though I still dread flying out of the USA.

Good to hear you've come around.  Why is it you dread flying OUT of the US?  I would think flying in and having to go through customs and immigration would be most people's concerns if they had concerns.  US immigration isn't going to deal with you on the way out unless you've been up to no good.

Newsflash: Nothing has changed. The country is still the same today as it was yesterday and the day before.

Turn off news and politics and you'll realize how little this shit actually matters and how much of it is just an attempt to get you worked up.

You want politics that matters? Try your local school board. Or the county parks millage. You might get lucky and have a state ballot proposal to legalize weed or casino gambling or something that would actually affect your life.

It's not until you get into high-income territory/business ownership that things actually start to really matter.

FIFY.

As usual, you're dead wrong. It all matters.

For example, look at how the stock market reacted.

The government shutdown is on, and this is effecting US customs officers jobs to a point that
the travelers who are entering the USA have been going through long delays.

I plan to visit New York City for my March break holidays. (Unfortunately I will have to book
a hotel in New York because my aunt's house is full). I would hate to book a flight to any place
in the USA and the government shutdown is still on by the month of March. I need to book my
flight and hotel way ahead of time to save money.

When will this shutdown end? We don't know. But if it seems as if there is no end in sight before
February or March, I may want to consider travelling to a different country or just go to Vancouver
or Montreal.

Try Airbnb rather than a hotel. Or stay right outside the city in Astoria or Long Island City.

This should be blamed on the democrats.  Just like the wall shutdown, itís their fault.
If you watched cnn and saw how democrats behave and depict the us as a racist bad place, then you wouldnít come either.

If the Democrats depict the USA as a bad racist place, that is because they want to reflect America in
the mirror to show that there is something wrong, and it needs to be fixed with the most civilized
solutions. If you really love your country, you must point out that there is something wrong so you can
fix it. If you refuse to fix it, nothing will improve.
