  1. This is a lie. He wants to couple a bill for FEMA funding and more Ukraine funding. He doesn’t care about Americans. He is willing to threaten not aiding FEMA if Ukraine voting is not voted for. This administration is a joke.

  2. Social security and Medicaid are being cut. US credit rating went down due to to much debt. Maui victims receive $700 per household. Ukraine and illegal i migrants get billions. 😵‍💫🤔 BRICS is dumping the petrodollar.

  3. Red states and GOP politicians who constantly complain about federal spending should get nothing from the feds when disasters strike.

  4. Stop giving money to Foreign counties. Why are we paying for foreign wars. We the American people need it athome

  11. They want more Fema money for them not the people they targeted with the fire. He is making so much money in double dealing it ain't funny Then has the nerve to ask them for donations to keep him in office so he can keep doing it. They only care about themselves and what is in it for them.

  13. He cut a deal with Donald Trump to let Kid Rock follow everywhere so he could take me out and if he was successful they would all split the money.

  14. He didn't want to deal with my situation and he took a bribe to not do so, from the very person who was trying to take him down, and he went against the person who was supporting him. The person with ALL the juice. Now he has to deal with it because his and his wife's asses are on the line to be seen for who they really are. CRIMINALS.
