Shameful....never going to get that back. Disgusting to see what this bas*ard is doing to our country all because of his bullying.
Thanks Glenn

The cost in dollars was high, but what is the cost of the betrayal? Not from Trump but far worse the Republican Senate which could have, at any time, overridden the executive branch and intervened, at any time AND DIDN"T.

Not a peep, not one of them, none, at any time - our representatives in federal government in an equal branch of government. Not a peep, not one of them at any time, just let it happen, in silence, not a twitch.
