Reagan was the right man for his time. Trump is the right man for his.
Bingo! And AOC the right jackass for her time.
If Obama were president, he would have provided support to both countries and to their dictators thereby preventing their inevitable collapse and prolonging the suffering of their people.

If PDJT doesn’t shut down the border and start deporting illegals, we’re going to have a socialist president here- President AOC.
“Hundreds” won’t do squat
It’s a start.
I would be happy if they could be exiled to an uninhabited island with no one to exploit.
...and not soon enough.
That shirt would put leftists in a major tizzy.
