I lost all respect for her. especially after everything she said during her campaign, all of the negative things she said about Trump. So now Trump's not demented or incapable of running the country or causing chaos etc etc? So was that all just a lie? just campaign crap hoping she'd beat out Trump? She has no integrity therefore she has no vote. shame on her. I really thought she did a good job too during her campaign.

So I'm wondering what do these young people think that Trump will do for them? perhaps they're not going to vote at all?

Trump is a spoiled brat who throws tantrums when he doesn't get his way. both Trump and Biden are too old to be president. they're both being used so that each party feels like they have a chance at the office of the president. isn't that funny they call it the office of the president hmmm

I think the Republicans in Iowa, who are in Cult Trump are setting the scene so that when Trump loses in 2024 they can say 'See, it was fraud because he was the winner everywhere else."
