A Day Never to Be Forgotten! Best Day in All History!
Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin (W.Va.) sharply criticized Democratic senatorial leader Sen. Harry Reid (Nev.) late Friday, calling the longtime Democratic leader “an absolute embarrassment to the Senate as an institution, our Democratic party, and the nation.”
Manchin’s comments came in response to Reid releasing a statement on Friday that completely denounced President-elect Donald Trump. In part, Reid labeled Trump a “sexual predator” that “lost the popular vote.”
Machin, who is one of the most conservative Democrats in the Senate, believes Reid’s outright opposition to the will of the people is a disgrace — and that it’s only helping to further divide the nation.
“I want to be very clear, he does not speak for me,” Manchin said of Reid, according to a statement. “As difficult as it is for anyone to lose an election, the American people have spoken and Donald Trump is our President-elect. Senator Reid’s words needlessly feed the very divisiveness that is tearing this country apart.”
“We are Americans first, not Democrats or Republicans first,” he added. “Unfortunately, there are some who forget that at times like these it is wrong to put party and politics above our country.”
Several news publications on Election Day reported that Manchin would begin to caucus with the Republicans in the Senate, but he later denied the reports.
I fell asleep before the Election results were all in last night and just cried and cried tears of joy when I seen this morning that our Trump won! God can Bless America again!!! May He bless Trump with wisdom always and bless us all!
True to the statement he made at a rally in Delaware, Ohio last month, Donald Trump accepted the ‘favorable’ election results.
“I would like to promise and pledge to all of my voters and supporters and to all of the people of the United States that I will totally accept the results of this great and historic presidential election … if I win,” the Republican said.
Trump edged past Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton who had hoped to claim the accolade of becoming the first female US president.
Trump previously accused Clinton of using the “woman card” to a level he had never seen before.
“All I’m doing is bringing out the obvious, that without the woman card, Hillary would not even be a viable person to even run for a city council position,” he said on NBC’s Today Show on April 28, 2016.
Despite being the underdog throughout the race, Trump never lost confidence in his ability to clinch the presidency, proclaiming at one point during the Republican primaries that he could “stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot people and I wouldn’t lose voters.”
The Republican candidate sparked furor numerous times throughout the race for the White House, because of his comments both online and in the public forum.
It was reported that Trump’s aides went as far as to take control of the presidential hopeful’s social media accounts in the final days of the campaign. The presidential candidate gained huge notoriety through the use of social media, with his tweets sparking thousands of retweets and news headlines.
Here RT looks back at Trump’s most contentious tweets (some of which were later deleted), which sparked meltdowns and accusations of xenophobia and bigotry against the candidate.
Trump launched his candidacy in Manhattan in June 16, 2015 on an anti-Mexican platform.
“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best … they’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people,” he said.
The candidate later promised to build a wall along the US-Mexico border, and repeatedly reiterated his wall proposal online, blasting Mexicans as “criminals”.
During an appearance in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, he vows to act on them in the first 100 days in office.
“On November Eighth, Americans will be voting for this 100-day plan to restore prosperity to our country, secure our communities, and honesty to our government,” Trump says. “This is my pledge to you and if we follow these steps we will once more have a government of, by and for the people and importantly we will make America great again. Believe me.”
Here is the list of the “Contract with the American Voter” policies detailed by Trump:

But it’s not tax “reform,” claims the study’s author, Kyle Pomerleau, just modifications of the existing tax code. The code would be more complex under Clinton’s plan and only slightly less so under Trump’s.
Because Trump’s plan is unclear about something called “pass through” — the taxation of income that is passed from a business entity onto its owner’s personal income tax form — the foundation did two analyses: one based on leaving present…

From the front lines of the hard fought patriot battleground comes the REAL NEWS of our time, It’s the news that takes We the People over the top called: Out-voting the frauds.
Let history record that It’s a message that found light in the trenches even as frantic Dems played in the gutter digging up manufactured scandals against Donald J. Trump, destined to boomerang back as soon as they hit sunlight, moth-bitten, 30-year old ones that match the dead leaving graves as live Hillary Clinton voters.
We the People outnumber the flunkies of the regressive ‘progressives, and outnumber them…
