100 thoughts on “Donald Trump Guts American Dream, Endangered Species Act Both In One Day | Rachel Maddow | MSNBC

  1. Donald Trump wasn't built with cuts so that's why he's gotten everything out of United States to convert it into a form of with Russia utilizes. Just my opinion.

  2. And if emigrants are tooken out of this country then who is going to do the jobs that so call Americans don't want to do. Oh yeah Trump's going to bring certain people in to fill those positions and leave Americans high and dry like he always sells out all individuals. Over the Horizon for our nation has Doom and Gloom.

  3. Do you remember Cohen's words? DT speaks in code. Making the United States great again means returning to the tyrannical dictatorial empire as it was before the independence of the United States. If you don't understand their code, you will lose all the battles, you will always be late! Wake up right now, tomorrow will be too late.

  4. ANYONE that believes Trump is for the middle or lower classes just needs to look at this immigration policy to recognize that he has NO interest in those that aren't successful. He's not going to make the middle class poorer and the poor, desolate.

  5. Bald eagles are beautiful birds of prey, who represent the U.S fighting spirit. Trump doesn't like competition. Let them die off. Go figure.

  6. So the "American Dream" only exists for immigrants? When exactly did American citizenship become an entitlement? The poem put on the Statue of Liberty to raise money for the statue's pedestal is irrelevant. Rachel Madcow, the Tokyo Rose for MSNBS Demorat Party propaganda.

  7. Unbelievable, but there will never be a shortage of stupid people in this country, and the Salesman definitely brought them all out!! I feel so bad for the next few presidents, they're gonna have their work cut out for them. The American Dream has become the American Nightmare. Yeah thanks Donnie!!!

  8. Trump don't only hate people he hates animals. He is going to destroy the United States for what it is, and some are turning a blind eye to it, for how long?

  9. I believe Nancy Pelosi when she said Trump Wants to be IMPEACHED. He's like a child bully that enjoys the playing the victims game's. Just don't like the results of letting Trump dump on America.

  10. In short, the Trump campaign sees in the white supremacist label a potentially useful rallying point, as Hillary Clinton’s “basket of deplorables” was in 2016. “They’re trying to make the case that anyone who supports this president is a racist,” CNN, MSNBC say 'racist' more than 1,100 times regarding Trump 'go …

    https://thehill.com/homenews/media/453300-cnn-msnbc-say-racist-636-times-regarding-trump-go-back-tweet-since-sunday Jul 16, 2019 – CNN and MSNBC have said the word "racist" more than 1100 times since … and Trump's remarks have been called out as racist by much of the …

  11. I think when that policy or immigration law goes into effect; all immigrants should take that day off from work, and maybe that child with the wig will see what happens to a country built by immigrants if they or we all decide not to work for one day.

  12. Trump and Steven Miller are really destroying America for power, greed, and hate. We are losing water and land forever. Lakes are no good if they are turned poisonous by construction and oil drilling. They can make the U.S. weaker from within. Thanks, Trump. I used to like fishing but now that will be gone soon too thanks to the salmon law changed for the construction and big oil to destroy.

  13. TRUMP’s strategy: Introduce one policy guaranteed to drive liberals crazy so they spend all their time talking about that, while he simultaneously does something terrible and actually unpopular that pumps up his racist base.

    Regarding credit score, my wife is a self made millionaire who has never borrowed a penny. She is Indonesian. I am American. If she wants to immigrate to the US, her credit score might disqualify her! Crazy!

  14. One final thought: Trump’s plan is intended to “flip” immigration so that immigrants come and, because they are already rich, they are presumed to want to vote GOP! How synical of Trump!

  15. Well the good news is, humans are soon going to be an endangered species thanks to Trump and republicans and after we are gone, maybe the remaining species on Earth can thrive.

  16. Australia is full of rich. Chinese ( no offence to the Chinese culture) who are able to buy rearl estate and businesses. New Zealand has finally passed legislation that allows only New Zealand citizens to own land or real estate. You cannot own property in China and South East Asia, Indonesia, unless you are a citizen. Seems fair.

  17. The best form of immigrant you want are those who come not with money, but the drive to succeed. Because on their journey to success they will bring many along with them.

  18. My father's father emigrated from Greece to the States before WWI, worked hard in Detroit, fought during the first war, made a lot of money and returned home before WWII. Sadly he lost most of his hard earned money during the occupation.

  19. "the hapless beast is mute, able neither to express its hurt nor take its case to the authorities… Therefore it is essential that ye show forth the utmost consideration to the animal, and that ye be even kinder to him than to your fellow man." ~ Baha'i Faith

  20. Sorry dropping but mr. Trump will not be in. For 2020 he has lost to many peoples trust right many are changing their minds and going blue and I don’t blame them

  21. France should ask the US to give the Statue of liberty back. And that Eagle that went after Trump knew something…

  22. Trump is so stupid!! Just like he has almost reversed every policy that Obama put in place. I extremely believe that he will not be elected. Whoever the Democrat is who wins the White House…they are going to reverse everything negative that Trump did. He is truly a 'National Disgrace.'

  23. Rachael is so full of crap. If you come to this or any other country you should be able to support yourself. No welfare no food stamps. You haven't earned them.

  24. Trump's new immigration rules would have blocked his own grandfather from coming over from Germany; who came over twice. This would be the only good thing about the rules, but it comes many years too late. What is ironic is his own grandfather was an illegal immigrant who never became an American citizen. He actually was a stateless person as he lost his Bavarian citizenship for evading the draft. Sounds familiar, doesn't it? Too bad bone spurs Trump did not lose his citizenship for evading the draft.

  25. They do their homework? Not all countries have a credit system. IMO they really thought about these changes to get rid of a huge number of immigrants. It's sickening.

  26. More evidence that racism is scam that the rich and well connected use to distract most people from who is actually screwing them over. Most immigrants came here exactly because they were poor, many were fleeing famine and during the colonial era many people basically sold them selves into slavery to come to this country becoming indentured servants.

  27. Who's gonna work in all of his hotels if he keeps throwing illegals out of the country? Maybe he's just not throwing out the ones who work for him.

  28. No I don't know of anyone who's parents, grand parents,haven't immigrated from somewhere to here. My grandparents immigrated from Sicily. They didn't have health benefits or a good credit score. But they made there way. My grandpa got a job working on the railroad. They bought a home, then when onto have 15 children. If not for that I wouldn't be here, or my children and grand children. I think these Acts are WRONG. Disgusting.

  29. Trump great America ,making his family rich ,while destroying the country
    Climate change is real,so let's destroy any chance to fix it,let's make it worse
    America needs more climate disasters, hurricanes,tornadoes
    All countries are based on imigrants, so let's just destroy that to
    When is it enough ,when do you stop Trump's hate, lies and dividing America
    When do you start thinking of the next generation of the world when do you
    start thinking about the earth and the human race..God's Children ,God's World

  30. WOW what a great story to run….the world is in turmoil…..
    and MSNBC is talking animals…..
    you have to be a real puppet putz to work here……
    With stocks up more Americans have achieved the
    American dream…….just not all the non English speaking
    illegals who are happy to live in a hut and steal your identity…..
    Boy…..as the truth emerges the Democrats look even more stupid….
    I did not think it was possible to be more stupid than the current
    crop of democrats…..

  31. I hope I get a response. Not many people know that native American tribes are protected under the endangered species act

    I am native American. I am from the Navajo tribe. Trump has been trying to get the resources under certain protected lands. The Bear's Ears, a holy area to the natives. Chaco Canyon is another site that under attack. I'm afraid that's he'll try to disband tribes to be able to get to the resources under the reservations.

    How did he change the act?

    Answers???????

  32. Not surprising. Trump cares only about himself and keeping in good standing withk many the whoa whoa boys club.

  33. The USA's main problem is Trump and his political agenda. Trump is putting the USA in danger of extintion. And his immigrant rules are totally antiConstitutional.
    If I may,
    First, the people of the USA need to get rid of this problem (Trump) and continue with the rest of republicans who are enabling the problem.
    Second, Congress should demand McConnell to pass the bill to STOP Russia from meddling in the voting process in 2020, only to help an incompetent person to become president for a second term. Four more years! Heaven helps us!
    Third, ask McConnell to resign immediately.
    If these two, Trump & McConnell, can't perform their duties, because they are compromised by the Russians, then, get out.
    WE ARE NOT WILLING TO CONTINUE PAYING McCONNELL's AND TRUMP's SALARIES FOR THEIR SERVICES RENDERED TO RUSSIA!
    Enough is enough!
    Enough of the mockery and impositions you have subjected us, the USA, to accept your shenanigans, while you are working for another country.
    What a disgrace to you and your families and for trying to impose your disrespectful and treasonry manners!
    You are the ones who should leave the Country. You are the ones changing and destroying what is good and sacred in the Constitution and America.

  34. So the old story that Americans love to tell "My granddaddy came here without a dime in his pocket…" is over. Ib fact don't talk about it – he might get deported.

  35. Not a word, Rachel, of why they are doing this? So the land where endangered species live can be sold for private use, such as fracking.

  36. We should make all elected officials show their tax returns. And they should not even qualify for office if they have had more than one bankruptcy.

  37. now SPEAKING of bad credit scores, perhaps THAT should be a consideration before you run for POTUS. been bankrupt? sorry… no can do!

  38. So republicons couldn't get rid of Obama care so they make private health insurrance mandatory for immigrants … long con ^^.
    Also smells a bit racist. Remember how people of color had been misstreaded in the USA in the past and you may find the thought pattern i am reffering to.

  39. I contend that poor immigrants are not only a moral issue but that they are fundamental to keeping our Democracy alive. Many Americans whose ancestors have been here for hundreds of years grow complacent and blase. They have taken their freedoms for granted for too long. Their democracy fever was cooled generations ago. It is that fever that keeps the American ideal alive and that fever is passed from one immigrant group to the next group of immigrants. When that fever dies out, we are in danger of our Democracy dying out.

  40. So terrorist organizations that are funded around the world can now purchase entry? Absolutely pathetic GOP. You have made tens of thousands of Independents blue by default.

  41. Trump got orders to change our eagle and Statue of Liberty to the Hammer and Sickle. How anti-American can he be? His immigrant policy will not see the light, it's discriminating, and therefore unconstitutional. Trump's own grandfather would not have been allowed to stay. Vote 2020 America, get rid of Trump; the GOP, …let's make America…America again!

  42. Trump is definitely a danger in many ways to women, to immigrants, to other countries, perhaps even to the US country of immigrants, to future victims of firearms, and now to Mother Nature!

  43. THIS MAKES ME WANT TO VOMIT RIGHT IN HIS UGLY FILTHY NASTY ORANGE FACE! HES DOING IT FOR MONEY —HE DOESNT GIVE A SHT ABOUT THE ANIMALS OR SPECIES.

  44. Now the not so great white hunters dony jr and eric can shoot anything. I remember seeing their pride as they posed over the carcass of the baby giraffe they'd killed. Proud

  45. Nothing knew, all people of colors, ocean, salmon and others.
    For the love of money.
    Save the ocean and save the HUMAN.
    Sorry that will not happen because the white PEOPLE kills everyone and everything's GOD has created.

  46. Rachel Maddow,
    That is NOT the American Dream! The American Dream is the same dream that Dr. Martin Luther King had in which all people live together in peace and harmony where a person would not be judged by the color of their skin but rather by the content of their character. The American dream is God's promise! The American dream is not in the pursuit of material wealth as a means to happiness but in the pursuit of happiness through spiritual awakening! That is what our freedom of religion is intended to bring us! The promised land is not a place but a state of being and one to be shared by all. The dream you are describing is a nightmare of consumption! We perpetuate it to drive the economy! An economy which is ill conceived and based on a system of infinite debt in the perpetual borrowing from people who don't even exist yet, let alone have the wealth to redistribute to us… Infinite debt! Because they are borrowing from nothing! Something from nothing is still nothing except to the Fed. They print the money out of thin air and when the debt is paid it isn't paid back to the future generations from whence it was borrowed but it is paid to the same FEDs who borrowed the money in the first place. The American Dream as you describe it is a dystopian nightmare and the only legacy we leave to our posterity!

  47. trump/republicans are the cancer killing the american dream and perverting america as a whole! RESIST THE TRUMP NAZI AMERICA!!!! Save the future.. DUMP THE TRUMP 2020!!!!

  48. What is trump doing to America ??? He is destroying our dreams, freedom, he is building hate, anger among us, depression. Sadness to us American.where is the hope we had for our future and our children ?? This trump is destroying everything in his path. America the Beautiful we the people are afraid😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭

  49. HOW CAN YOU ALLOW IMMIGRANTS INTO THE U.S. WHEN THERE ARE REALLY NO JOBS. TRUMP NEEDS TO BRING JOBS BACK TO HELP US ALL.

  50. THE U.S. HAS PLUNDERED ALL OF SOUTH AMERICA AND STOLEN THEIR RESOURCES /// NOW THEY ARE TRYING TO GET VENEZUELA OIL..WHY DON'T THE U.S. WORK TOGETHER WITH THE AMERICAS [ NORTH,SOUTH, CANADA AND ALL THE ISLANDS ] TO RAISE THE STANDARD OF LIVING AND THERE WOULD BE FEW IMMIGRANTS.

  51. All is dying on planet faster under tRump and soon it will be the humans. Leave the innocent animals alone and just die off mean useless humans who lost connections to Mother Earth.

  52. Trump loves money…he said he only likes people with money….guess I didn't take that remark from him so literally..how sad.

  53. 2 historical sayings apply #1 The party is over. #2 The window of opportunity has closed. The lady Liberty has given all she has there's nothing left.

  54. I thought they said they couldn't change anything that had to do with the way they handle immigration. They keep blaming the former leaders. Now put the blame where it belongs . We will all stand before God for what we do or don't do! Are you prepared?

  55. FAKE POTUS making us crazy about anything that will keep us from focusing! He's a criminal, hired to help oligarchs and stock market rip offs!

  56. Seem like Republican policy to use a system, benefit from it, and then try to radically change the system for anyone after you. Sounds like pull-the-ladder up tactics, perfected by Republicans.

  57. As a soon to be Canadian citizen, I am astounded at the level of stupidity, incompetence and targeted racism that my neighbor's government has achieved since November 9, 2016.

    Canada's worried about you America, you need to do something about your nutcase President. Oh and to his supporters and the Neo-Nazi groups, HIIIIIIIIIII!!!!!!
