Donny doesn’t do anything unless he clips the ticket on the way through. If anyone thinks this is just an optics play for some sort of good will that’s pretty naive given the disastrous optics Donny creates daily :-).
As a real Christian, I don't want that orange fraud mofo anywhere near Christianity.

Yep. Definitely some dodgyness there. If you look at the website that's selling the bibles, they say that they don't donate to the Trump campaign and that Trump doesn't control what they do. They are careful to avoid saying that Trump doesn't get money himself. And they hint that they pay Trump to use his likeness. Basically put, Trump is getting paid for his endorsements.

They’d be careful not to donate to the campaign to avoid breaking campaign finance laws (which no doubt there’s microscopes on Donny for). Ir’s likely one of his classic ‘licensing’ deals where you get the name/brand for payment. Richard Branson does the same with Virgin. Regardless we could be very sure DJT benefits.

I don't understand why anyone gets up in arms about political leaders receiving donations to their campaign. Both parties do it. They are each trying to push their agenda and bending all possible man made rules whilst doing it.

I don’t think it’s an ‘up in arms’ thing but more like a salary cap. If there were no limits, the sombrero would ensure the same team wins every time. No fun in that.

It's dangerously lax in America. Lobby groups often fund US politicians for massive amounts. Smoking supporting politicians had their entire campaigns sponsored by tobacco companies. Climate change deniers have their campaigns entirely funded by fossil fuel companies. There's apparently a separation of Church and State, but some religious organisations fund Conservative politicians with millions of dollars that should probably be used to feed the starving, but instead they use it in attempts to overturn laws on same sex marriage and abortion.

Fortunately it's a lot more regulated in Australia.

Always liked this scene and sums it up well:

So who funds the clinics that performs the abortions that the democrats run on. Late term and gender specific abortions..wouldn't those funds also feed the starving. And it wasn't all that long ago that Barack and FJB were anti same sex marriage, claiming marriage was exclusively between a man and a woman. A pair of flip floppers. If democrats were so concerned about feeding the starving, they wouldn't be sending tens of billions of tax payer funds to Mr Zelinski, while homelessness, mental illness, drug addiction, crime in their own cities are rife.

Of course. They're governments. They don't care about feeding the starving. They care about staying in power.

Religious organisations raise money through donations under the guise that they will help others. When they spend that same money linin politician pockets so they can enact their beliefs on others, that's when it becomes an issue.

lol..Trump is nothing like FJB, It is so obvious that Biden is incapable of carrying out the duties of the president, and is being manipulated by others behind the scenes. They will undoubtedly escape any retribution when the full extent of their actions are revealed after he has served his usefulness. Just look at the outcome of the hearing from his stealing classified documents, he escapes any punishment claiming "Biden as "a sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory," but did not recommend criminal charges."

This is how FJB and his handlers , along with the doj plan to eliminate a political opponent. Letting a convicted perjurer walk without penalty in return for his testimony in an attempt to incriminate Trump, who was being blackmailed by a whore that takes it in the butt for pesos.

Has anyone ever actually provided any credible evidence this happens? I’ve heard MAGA claims of abortions as late as the 9th month of pregnancy ie: close to birth but have never seen any supporting evidence and as far as I’m aware it’s not true. Anyone?

So you’re saying that if the GOP were in power they wouldn’t be providing any funding to Ukraine. Oh that’s right. Donny said he’d ’end the war in 24 hours’ and that ‘Putin wouldn’t have invaded if I was in office’ - two utterly untested claims. Take the blinkers off :-).

Probably because Biden realised the error, reported it himself, and handed back the documents. Trump not only hid the fact he had the documents, he also refused to hand them back.

I agree that Biden isn't fit to be President. But at least he's not Trump. A guy that holds the record for being the most dishonest President, and a guy who actively encourages his followers to hate everyone else.

The thing I find funny about the current US Presidential race is that if you speak to Americans you get one of two responses:

1) neither Biden or Trump are fit to be President. The world is laughing at us

Or

2) Biden isn't fit to be President. Trump is our God
