I believe that the U.S is having a very hard time because Trump wants the funding for his wall which the democrats wont give to him.Trump will continue to be stubborn because as he says "Economic miracle is taking place." He believe that this is his doing and he will have what he wants.Trump's stubborn attitude will lead to even more hardships for Americans
2/7/2019 11:19:23 am
I agree with Jermaine because this is going to bring conflict with the U.S later. This will bring up conflict because Trump will not stop until that money is in his hands. This effects a lot of us in the government shut down and effects how people live.

I think what Trump has been doing and his goal is wrong. Trump had said in the Union that it's because of him that the economy is great which is a partially a lie. To illustrate "Economic miracle is taking place... the only thing can stop it are foolish wars and partisan investigation". He said that the investigation would stop the great work he has done for the US, its a wast of time and that they need to stop it immediately or the US will crumble. I don't like it because it just shows how his manipulating people to make sure he stays as President for the remainder of his run and to keep him there for another 4 years.

I do not believe the US is healthy as long as we have a idiotic president who wants to shutdown the government again in less than 10 days if he doesn't get funding to build his silly wall for which really do not need. I believe that president trump will make chaos if he shutdown the government and there will be a lot of angry government agents and other people who rely on gov programs to eat and feed their families who will be coming after him all all because of wall.

Honestly the united states isn't healthy as of now .We have a president shutting down the government over a wall on the southern border, its pure nonsense hes stopping so many people from receiving their paychecks. He says he will do it again as an "emergency" on Feb 15 if they don't fund him with the money for the wall. Our president to me is weak how can he talk about "immigrants" when his own wife is one. Trump says "economic miracle's taking place the only thing can stay our foolish was parasitism investigation" I want to know what miracles is he bringing all i know is that hes making our state look dumb and weak.
2/7/2019 09:49:08 am
The Fact that The President has to shutdown the government to get what he wants is just ridiculous, especially if he has to do it as an emergency and for an extended period of time.
2/7/2019 09:49:56 am
My opinion of the United states is that the country is doing okay.The country is doing okay but we have people who make a mess of this country. The president still wants the wall, and will shut down the government as he said round February 15. I find the wall unnecessary because he claim that mexico and the other Spanish countries are terrorist and rapist and drug dealers or whatever. But this country is messing up by the gun violence, Trump is over here worrying about the wall that isn't built the country he president in is having a certain violence problem over weapons. I believe that the president is messing up the country, and his supporters make it seem like its okay to built a wall. So much racism in this country, its unnecessary, the president is just pushing stereotypes even more now.
2/8/2019 10:32:17 am
I agree wit Jeffrey, only for the fact that america and its civilization will do whatever it takes for power and peace. However, this hunger for power is what leads us into sacrificing innocent people from putting them into wars. The country would be fine if we just stay with what we have now instead of always wanting more when we have already got enough. With Donald Trump in office , i have a feeling he may try to start a war soon.
2/7/2019 09:50:24 am
I think Trump is not a good president he takes credit for things he does not even do and the things he does do he does not say. He thinks that with him being president everything is great but its not. He is also still trying to shut down the government to get money for the wall he is sure he is going to build. When he said he was going to build the wall it stood out to me because he really want to build that wall.
2/8/2019 10:53:21 am
I agree with my cousin jackie because trump take credit for every good thing that happens in american.
2/8/2019 11:09:10 am
I agree with the homegirl jackie because Trump is doing the most to get what he wants which is to get rid of illegal people that are in this country at the moment. Since he is not getting the support he needs to build this wall he has been shutting down the government and he is still not getting any money for the wall. This stands out to me because this change would just mess up the economy of the country since a lot of the jobs are taken up by the "illegal people".
2/8/2019 12:32:56 pm
I agree with you Jackie,he's always claiming and taking credit for things he did not do which is wrong.He want to build that wall by all means and he won't stop until he gets the money for the wall why punish your people (citizens)because of a wall
2/8/2019 12:39:12 pm
I agree with Jackie and Lucia b/c it is true trump does take credit for stuff that he didn't even do. Trump is making the untied states weak bc he is not working hard to make it better , he making weak by wanting to bulid the wall , the wall is usless.
2/7/2019 09:50:49 am
My opinion about the state of the united states is president Donald Trump is making it more difficult for many people just because he wants amount of money to built the wall. Trump will continue to beg for his money like he said "Economic miracle is taking place, the only thing that can stop it are foolish wars and partisan investigation". Also the government will shutdown once again on February 15. I feel like during the shutdown workers working without pay will struggle more to support there families. I think what President Donald Trump doing is immoral.

What I think would happen next is that Trump will end up using people's taxes anyway to build the wall. The government will probably shut down again because of Trumps actions. In the Union he said the wall is getting put up no matter what. His plan before was to use people taxes to build the wall so now that they have already signed the papers for taxes he might use their money for it. I believe that Stacey is/sounds more presidental then trump because she knows what she is talking about and cares for everyones well-being not just some of the people in the U.s.

Based on Donald Trump's speech, and the response to it made by Stacy Abram it is no doubt that the United states is at a time where both parties have such a disparity in belief that conflict will most likely remain a major stalemate. With the Right's concern to serve for those of their own standards and keeping to restrict American ideals for only those they associate with to the Left attempting to keep diversity and seek that everyone is still entitled to live by American ideals. The major thing that always seems to make a lot of people bat an eye is Trumps speeches and how he illustrates the american state to that of which it isn't like his speech when it mentions " an economic miracle is taking place. The only thing that is stopping it, are foolish wars, politics and partisan investigations" since much of what he addresses has correlated with him, it is easy to conclude that at the moment all these things that he claims to interfere with economic growth is in fact, issues that he has created and if not contributed to.

In my opinion, i think that the United states is not healthy. I think that the president is ignorant from the fact that he wants to shutdown the government again. If he does this he is putting people at risk in the government and places where the government is in charge of. He also wants to build the wall which is not even worth the time and money and instead of focusing on that, he should be aware of the country and fix its problems like rebuilding or like helping the need that need it. He is making our country unhealthy by is poor actions.
2/7/2019 11:15:28 am
In my Opinion I feel like America is in a time where things are going very scary. This is because the words and the actions that has been taken by Trump. I personally feel like Donald Trump is a horrible president and maybe just wanted to be president bc he’s a billionaire. It’s like he’s being a kid, if he doesn’t get what he wants the he does things that can harm Americans badly such as the government shutdown. Donald trump is highly motivated to build a dumb wall, his reasons for this is very racist. But in my opinion I feel like we are just in a scary time and in the election of 2020 I will be able to vote and I will make sure I vote against him.
2/7/2019 11:19:38 am
In my opinion, The united states of america is going in a downward spiral due to the decisions that Trump is making.He has hurt the nation by shutting down the government for a long period of time and he plans on doing it again on February the 15th. He also wants people to stop investigating him as it will stop the "Economic miracle." The actions being taken by Trump will burn the united states to the ground.
2/7/2019 11:23:47 am
In the past three years the United States has been through a lot. The United States has accomplished many things and gained my flaws during the past few years ever since Donald Trump became president.For example we have more women running for congress than any other year as trump stated in the union. A flaw is that Trump uses the wall as a threat to shut down the government,he also used the union as a way to say how him being investigated is a bad thing. This just proves to me that the United States is in a bad situation and that thing will get worst.
2/7/2019 11:25:25 am
In my opinion The United States is not currently in a healthy state. The president of the US believes that "an economic miracle is taking place in the United States-- and the only thing that can stop it are foolish wars, politics, or ridiculous partisan investigations." which is not true. How is there an economic miracle if just a few weeks ago many workers were not receiving paychecks because our president decided to shutdown the federal government for an ineffective wall. He also promised that in 10 days he will have another shutdown and do it as an emergency. Also why did he subtly criticized Nancy Pelosi for doing her JOB which is to investigate him for breaking laws.
Vanessa Roman P2
2/7/2019 11:25:56 am
In my opinion the state of the United States is that it is not going in the right direction. Donald Trump is trying to provoke people by saying that a wall is needed, his supporters and to everyone who opposes this. In the state of the union speech, he chose to speak upon the crime acts being committed that come from the southern border. Meanwhile the Democratic Party ( the democratic response)is against the wall and how instead more support and funding can go to education and for the better of the American lives .
2/7/2019 11:29:42 am
I think Trump's speech "economic miracle is taking place...the only thing the only thing that can stop it are foolish wars and partisan investigation" is controversial because he is indirectly talking to the speaker of the house of representative and telling them to stop all investigation on the government so that the so-called economic miracle can happen.he also said that the wall he want to build will protect Americans from drug dealers,human traffickers, e.t.c which means he is calling immigrants drug dealers and human traffickers, this means he is not in for any other thing other than stopping or reducing immigration in any way .in my opinion,the response to the president by the democrats is right because their representative said that America is stronger by the presence of immigrants and not wall,this means the democrats are not happy with the president's decision on shutting down the government because of the border wall.
2/7/2019 11:52:28 am
In my opinion, the United States is in the middle of a crisis. I think this because the president wants funding for an unnecessary wall. This is a problem because he is acting childish and throwing a tantrum by shutting down the government which is a problem because many people rely on government funding. He will shut down the government again Feb.15 if he doesn't get the money that he wants for the wall. I know this because in his speech he states "I will build that wall" which shows that he is certain about this and it is something that he is not backing down from.

I agree with Selena because i do believe that the United States is in the middle of a crisis. Our president, Donald Trump is only causing more problems and chaos in America because he isn't receiving the money that is needed for the unnecessary wall. Many people didn't get paid during the government shut down, which caused many of them to lose their homes.In my opinion, Trump should focus on bigger problems rather than worrying about getting his money for the wall. For instance, he should worry about kids education in America, and how our system is slowly failing us.
2/7/2019 12:31:09 pm
The state of U.S. is very horrific. Previously the president issued a government shutdown. This shutdown impacted many working class Americans in their pockets. The shutdown was issued in the result of the government not giving money to Donald Trump to help build a more efficient wall and more formidable border patrol. The horrific thing about this is the government declines in giving the president any essentials in building the wall. He then decided since the government would not give any type of funding he would threaten the pockets of many Americans again by issuing a government shutdown in 10 days. So the state of the U.S. is horrific do to the fact that many Americans live pay-check to pay-check and many may be evicted, homeless, etc. due to the presidents careless actions.
2/7/2019 02:36:40 pm
In my opinion Trump say the same thing he always say. The speech was long and like you heard it before. The speech was boring. The president talk about the "problem" of american and how he fix america. He talk about the wall again and how it will keep us safe.
2/7/2019 02:40:47 pm
i think that the state of the united states is very bad at the moment. When the government got shut down it impacted many working people. the president even said that after ten days if he doesn't have the money he "needs" to build the wall he's going to shut it down again which is going to effect workers once again for having to work without pay. president trump thinks that " economic miracle is taking place.. the only thing that can stop it are foolish wars, and partisan investigation." none of this is true because we cant have an economic miracle if workers were recently working without pay.

I feel like the lady in the video brought up so good points and agree because the united states have been going thru certain problems that needs to be fixed and i definitely wont be fixed by a wall
2/7/2019 02:41:04 pm
The state of the United States is essentially a huge campaign trail for President Trump. Words such as good and bad don't describe the status for it's too simple but complex. Trump used his stage at the State of the Union to propel himself as the face of the United States. He described himself as basically the savior of the United States and he's the reason why America is so "great." By doing so, Trump is setting himself up to be seen as a hero thus allowing him to be seen as favorable to Republicans and the American people who share his same ideals. Trump stated, "[T]he only thing that can stop it are foolish wars and partisan investigation." This shows an implicit connection between Trump and stepping stones to a reelection campaign. The state of the United States, is simply put as this; a gigantic reelection campaign for Donald Trump.
2/7/2019 02:43:31 pm
the state of the U.S is terrible .previously the president issued a goverment shutdown .The reason why the strike was issued is because the president wanted a wall and funding wasn't issued .he then threatened the pockets of many american's by isssuing the strike .so the state of the u.s is horrific due to the fact that americans are living based off week to week checks and being evicted from their homes ,Due to the presidents selfish acts
2/7/2019 02:44:42 pm
My opinion about the state of the United States is president Donald Trump is making it difficult for many people to live in the US because he want everyone to bend to his will but they won’t . Trump will continue to beg "Economic miracle is taking place, the only thing that can stop it are foolish wars and partisan investigations. He’s trying to avoid people from stopping him and getting in his way.

In my opinion i believe that the United states is not being ran by the right person. Donald Trump is not mentally stable in my opinion to run as president because he does not care about the people who are being affected by the government shut down. He is the one who says when the shut down starts and when it ends. he is being immature by saying that if he doesn't get the funding to build the wall, he would shut down the government again. this is a very serious situation because a lot of people depend on government money.
Marco Ramirez P3
2/7/2019 02:45:39 pm
The state of the union speech was just a Trump trying to not let himself get kick out of the presidency. When Trump said "the only thing can stop it are foolish was and partisan investigation." He was trying to talk down the people to not investigate the president. Trump also said "if I wasn't president we will be in a war with North Korea." He uses this to his advantage even though he let Kim walk all over him.
2/7/2019 02:45:46 pm
What i think about the place i live is that we, yes me and you are all in great danger. Due to the fact that the president of the Unites States is not doing his job well as president. An example is the government shut down on the US, this has cause many economic problems and many struggles within families. This is one a many reasons, there are many mistakes that Trump has committed.
2/7/2019 02:46:40 pm
I think that Trump is doing unnecessary things in order to get funding for the was that wont really be useful because people will find a way around it and all the funding that he is trying to get will just go to waste. From Trump's speeches I can tell that he is very determined to get the funding for the wall so there will most likely be another government shutdown. With another government shutdown many more people will lack money to pay their bills because they wont be getting paid due to the government shutting down in 10 days. So this shows that the United States isnt doing very good lately all because of Donald Trumps determination of getting a wall built on the border.
2/7/2019 02:47:27 pm
My opinion on the state of the Union is that it isn't at a right place at this time because of Trump. I feel that he is hiding something that he is planing on doing in the future, so he causes so many distractions. And that is why he doesn't want people to investigate him.
2/7/2019 02:48:39 pm
The State of the U.S as from trumps point of view is going great.The people of America and myself say otherwise.Trump say's he has an agenda to "Make America Great Again".In the interest of the people but right now,We the people have condoned almost everything that trump has said.Whether or not Trump makes himself believe that the state of the union is strong.There simply is no way that this is true seeing as how he has shut the government down in a stunt ONLY to protect himself and not the people.As from what I have seen it's only a matter of time before trump does something that is irreversible and leaves the union in an even worse state.We can only wait until we have the ability to vote or the president does not rig the way that we share our voice as the people of this nation.
2/7/2019 02:52:09 pm
I believe that the state of the United States is not as bad as it has been, but at the same time, it's in a very critical condition. We have a President that believes he is a hero that came to save us; protecting us from rapist, murders, drug dealers, sex and human traffickers with the cost of a $5.4 billion wall in the southern boarder of the United States to stop illegal immigrants from poisoning our country. A person that doesn't think about the consequences of his actions, for example, the government shut down caused a lot of hardships within families with low income. A President should be a person who serves the people, making rational decisions for the good of the country and making us feel safe; not scaring us into building a wall.
2/7/2019 02:52:26 pm
My opinion on how the governments health is right now its that its falling apart. We shouldnt have a war in between our own walls, for example Nancy does not have any respect towards Trump because of her beliefs she has against him and Trump is poking a stick at her trolling her.Trump may feel this way because 'he may be a spy" but also because he might feel that this distrust will come in different ways of people viewing this government.Trump will be himself for his 4 years and he is absoulutely obsured with his Wall he wants to built not because I have been out this wall but what his idea of the wall has effected , it effected so many people in a difference scenario.I can speak so many things but the government is just no healthy right now because of this war that is in this house.One day the government will realize that Trump is the cancer of the government and he should step down because he has not brung our government into a healthy situation.
2/7/2019 02:55:12 pm
Trump´s State of the Union speech, was very ironic. As he spoke and said, ¨economic miracle is taking place...the only thing that can stop it are foolish wars..and partisan investigations¨ he was clearly indicating that while an investigation is under operation, the economy will be unsuccessful. This shows how he feels superiority and like he is the main head that is driving the United States to ¨success¨ and ¨wealth.¨ On the other hand, while stating all of this with much prideful, he forgets that he had recently shutdown the government that impacted the United States' economy and millions of government employees strongly. He wants the spotlight and the recognition that he supposedly deserves so much, that he takes credit for things that he did not do and forgets the reality that he has made of the United States.
2/7/2019 02:58:34 pm
I think that the state of the united states is bad. Although there have been some improvements made, like higher minimum wages, i think that our president isnt someone that we should trust to serve our country. he says that hes saving the country from rapists, murderers, and drug dealers by building the 5 billion dollar wall, but he is causing us to become a xenophobic country.
2/7/2019 02:58:40 pm
The way I see it is people all across america is blind sided they need to wake up and realize that society is falling apart the world is coming to a end because we giving people power that can end are country people need to take time to double check what they doing if not before it hits 2020 there will not be a United States.
2/7/2019 02:59:49 pm
I believe the state of the United States is going on a very terrible path. Trump claims he wants to make America great again but can't do that if we're having "foolish wars and partisan investigation" as he said in the video, but that doesn't really make any sense because if he's not doing anything wrong secretly then he should still be able to do what he wants. In my opinion, he's hiding something and is definitely leading the United States into a hole of white supremacy. Leading America to greatness would look like what Stacey Abrams spoke about and what she emphasized which was opportunity, community and shared responsibility FOR EVERYONE and WITH EVERYONE, something Trump as president is not doing but should be doing.
2/7/2019 03:02:04 pm
My opinion about the State of the United States is that it is in a very low dangerous place. The fact that the United States has a president that says,"Economic miracle is taking place... the only thing that can stop it are foolish wars and partisan investigation." shows his petty immature character that has control over a nation. The quote demonstrates the low character he is and the danger he is putting the nation in by creating more tension and petty actions. President Trump can not even own up to his own actions that he is extremely agitated by the fact that something is being done to stop him. In addition, his last few sentences of giving congress 10 days to pass a bill to fund the beginning of wall and if they do not follow then the government will shut down once again shows the danger the nation is in. The state of United States has come to a breaking point where it has chosen a president that does not care for every single human but rather put his own beliefs and priorities first.
2/7/2019 03:03:02 pm
I believe that the State of the United States is not doing very well. Especially as having Trump as president, it takes a toll on the way things should be going. The things Trump says is unnecessary and someone in the office should take a stand and go against his ideas and things he says he's going to do but shouldn't. There are many people who disagree with so much but won't say anything because they don't have enough power to change anything. When Trump says, "Economic miracle is taking place... the only thing we can do to stop it are foolish wars and partisan investigation." By him saying this it means that he wants to make himself seem as a good president. He also mentioned that because of him we aren't at war with North Korea and since they are going to investigate him he has to make himself look like he's the best person ever and he also throws a little shade at the speaker of the house especially since she was the one who was going to investigate about him. I don't like the way things are and there should be a change I agree with everything Stacey Abrams especially about making health care less expensive and things we need to survive and live a good life more accessible.
2/7/2019 03:09:00 pm
In my point of view, the U.S. is going in a bad direction because of the decisions that Trump is making. He has hurt the nation by shutting down the government for a long period of time and still, with that being said, he plans on doing it again on February the 15th. He also wants to stop his investigations as it will stop the "Economic miracle." With these actions of his, America will dissolve into dirt without a doubt.
2/7/2019 03:13:09 pm
The current condition of the United States in horrific due to the government being in the hands of a president who is not qualified to lead. The president Donald Trump shut down the government because of a disagreement between him and the congress which mainly consists of democrats. The disagreement was that the president wants to build a giant border wall between the United States and Mexico but does not have the funding, this leads him to asking the congress to pass a bill for funding which they refuse. He publicly announced that the congress has 10 days to pass the bill before he starts another shutdown which will stop giving checks to federal workers. This is a significant problem because we as Americans we have never been in a situation similar to this and it only worsens the lives of many.
2/7/2019 03:25:44 pm
The state of the union, Donald Trump focuses on his wall and believes he is right.He is threatening to shut down the government again if he doesn't get his wall.He wants to have people believe that the investigation is no longer important moving own and it will only create problems.
2/7/2019 07:16:52 pm
In my opinion I feel that the United States is in a bad direction at the moment. Based on Trump's speech he views the United States nation as a nation that has been prospering thanks to him as President. He mentioned that a lot of people voted for the wall to be build and that HE WILL BUILT IT. He is having people that serve our nation built this wall due to him not getting the $5.7 billion. He had the government shutdown roughly for a month and in 10 days he is going to do it again. He’s not thinking of how this has affected millions of families. Parents having to look for part time jobs in order to be able to pay of their rent or feed their families. Therefore, I say that Trump abuses of his power and that will do whatever he can to get what he wants.

My opinion about the State of the United States is that we are slowly falling apart. Ever since Trump has became president he has caused more problems for the US than any solutions. Trump states, " Economic miracle is taking place... the only thing can stop it are foolish ways and partisan investigation. " Trump is doing things that he knows the people of the US would not re elect him for, that's why he doesn't want any investigation to happen.
2/8/2019 10:38:08 am
In my opinion, the United States is going through a hard time because of Trump. Yes, he has done some good things for the country but that shouldn't mask what he is doing right now. In the following quote Trump expresses how he is blaming other people for the government shutdown and all the destruction caused by it when it is all his fault. "Economic miracle is taking place...the only thing stopping it are the foolish wars and partisan investigations." Also, now he is more determined to build the wall, more determined than he ever was. There wouldn't be no change to the country, except more life threatening problems than can be avoided but Trump doesn't care. He needs to be less stubborn and listen because this is just bad for everyone.
2/8/2019 10:40:12 am
i think that what he is doing is wrong because hes acting like without the government we have resources.
2/8/2019 10:48:39 am
I think that Trump is just a selfish person . Not caring about others self being and just in himself . He said that putting up a wall was going to protect american people . Also HE said He was gonna make it happen for those who voted for him . He also said that United States is in good hands and that we aint bombed cause he made good dealings with North Korea . To being with i dont think that any president would want to get bombed . Trump is just making U.S. worse and is not fixing anything by shutting down a government that helps people . He just big pressed .
2/8/2019 10:52:13 am
In my opinion the state of the United States is deficient. It is inadequate because President Trump wants funds for a boarder wall that is a waste of money to keep out illegal immigrants. Like Stacey Abrams said in her speech "America is made stronger with the presences of immigrants not walls." In order for the state of United States to be stabilize President needs to stop thinking about this expensive wall and not shutting down the government.
2/8/2019 10:52:59 am
I believe that both democrats and republicans are dividing the country with pointless ramblings about how the opposing side is wrong and they are right. These divides and hatred for each other will one day boil over and lead to a civil war between both sides because nobody could get along and agree with one another. If both side would stop screaming at each other for a few days and listen we may have a chance at making some progress. I however believe that both sides will keep yelling at each other until they begin to realize that there is no point for any of this, but by then it will be too late and the country will be done for.
2/8/2019 10:53:16 am
I feel that trump really is a childish president which isn't good for the union.When trump states "economic miracle is taking place...The only thing can stop it are foolish wars and partisan investigations." He was sending sneak diss to the party that's investigating him but hes being shady.

I believe that the State of the United States is not doing very well.The fact that the United States has a president that says,"Economic miracle is taking place... the only thing that can stop it are foolish wars and partisan investigation." this shows he is a immature character.

honestly what trump has been doing is pointless in many ways and the fact that there are people that stand with him is worse. why shut down the government knowing you wont get what you want if anything he is just being a big baby about it. the fact that he shut down the government is a way for him to tell the government that he is having a tantrum and no one else should give into what he wants. the U.S. is in a stable position today and has been until he was elected president but its to late to change that all we can really hope for is that he doesn't get elected for another term. soon enough we will have a say in the election so we will then be a part of this whole situation. all we can do for now is talk and hope things go well but until the day comes that we can finally vote we will just have to hope that president trump does nothing that is worse then what he is trying to do now. i highly doubt that anyone wants to to give Trump 5.7 billion dollars to build a wall that we don't need.

I think that the United States is in bad shape because the president wants to build a border to keep people from trying live here in the United States for a better life and he’s not focusing on other problems that people are having as in providing for there families and he has never felt what most people go through so he doesn’t know what it feels like to have the government shutdown on you and those pay check you’ve worked for aren’t being given to you so you can’t take care of the people you care for because of the shutdown and he thinks it’s a good idea to do it and not see it as a problem but more like an advantage.

I think the United States is slowly going down until President Trump stops and cancels building a wall and other controversial stuff that he created since Day 1 on office. In his speech, he thinks that he is making this country great by building a wall to stop the bad stuff from happening. The quote states " Economic miracle is taking place... the only thing can stop it are foolish wars and partisan investigation." This quote means that a war can stop him from being president and so as the investigation of him. That is my statement of why is our country slowly going down.

In my opinion, what Trump is saying is that if the government does not fund the wall he will shut down the government. Trump said that he doesn't need to be investigated that the process would have gone smoother. It isn't appropriate to for him to do that because he said that Mexico was going to pay for the wall now he saying that the government has to fund it. If he doesn't get the funds from the government he will shut the government and he will be taking the resources of people away because some people either work for the government and he is taking away the payments from them.

My opinion of the United States is that they just want to protect the citizens and not other s like Migrants. Also Think that Trump is a selfish because he only care about him and dont think on the effects. Trump is just making U.S. worse and is not fixing anything by shutting down a government that helps people. Someone really need to stop him of doing stupid things.

in my opinion Donald trump trying to get credits from people to build the wall or other wise he will shut down the government.Trump used his stage at the State of the Union to propel himself as the face of the United States. i think Donald Trump is doing wrong in putting things on mexico when they does't agree with the wall. if he don't get the money he will be taking peoples money and shut down the government.

The United States should remove Trump out of the presidency office because he wants to build the wall.He wants to deport the illegal immigrants not giving them the opportunity that they don't have,only because he believes the immigrants are invading the U.S. it is xenophobia.The congress isn't really doing anything to realize that it is really racist and its illegal. Trump is only making this country worse conditions causing the government shutdown and especially homeless illegal immigrants.

In my opinion the United States should remove Trump.I feel this because we are at a point in time where the U.S is going to have another war.The U.S would be a LITTLE better without Trump. If stays in the office for another term its going to be over for the United States and we could be looking at WWIII.

In my opinion Trump should be removed because if he doesn't then another war will happen. I also think Trump should focus on other things that are important not just worrying about the wall. If hes a president he should start acting like one.
