President Trump said Thursday that the appointment of a special prosecutor to investigate ties between his campaign and the Russian government as "the single greatest witch hunt" in American political history. Agree?

Single greatest witch hunt? No, the Salem witch trials were the greatest witch hunt.

I agree it's a witch hunt, but definitely not the most significant one.

The problem is that this investigation is being portrayed as way too broad. Investigating Trump for collusion with Russians over election is a witch hunt and is the agenda democrats and media want to push.

Maybe McCarthy over did it and was way out there but what he did was based on true facts. Communist were infiltrating the government movies in academia.so I don't think that was a witchhunt.

The UN, Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia (on the women's right's council), Syria, North Korea, Sudan, Somalia and more "democratic" countries are all in agreement with the Democrat party about Trump.

What does that's tell you?

messiah
05/18/17 7:08 pm

Most of those countries are in agreement because they do not like Trump's anti-immigration policies. For North Korea, they are not really liking Trump right now because of his aggressive military stance against their homeland.

North Korea, Iran, and Somalia don't like him because he's American, they hated Obama and Bush too. Iraq and Sudan don't like him because he targeted them in his travel ban. Syria doesn't like him because he bombed them, Assad actually complimented him back when he was saying he'll stay out of Syria. Saudi Arabia doesn't like him because he's protectionist (and therefore could hurt their oil exports). The UN doesn't have a centralized opinion, if you just mean the majority of the nations in the world, then its mostly because of his divisive and unpredictable behavior that threatens our relationships with them. Like our European allies hate him because he has threatened to violate NATO if they're attacked, and supports far-right policies among other things they find unacceptable. The only countries whose leaders have said positive things about him that I can think of are Turkey, the Philippines, Russia, the U.K. and Israel.

Not exactly. This was very sensitive information that Trump used for Russia's favor, and even though he had the absolute right to do it, it was not the right decision. Especially considering what happened when Obama shared information with Russia just last year

How so? If that wasn't a witch hunt then how in any way would this be? We KNOW that Trump has shared classified information with Russian, and Comey said in a memo the trump asked him to halt his investigation into ties with Russia, and suggested looking into the media instead. There is an epidemic of blindness amongst continued Trump supporters.
