'.....Frankmusic, let me repeat an earlier request since I am really curious about your perspective. Please do tell me which promises Trump has broken.....'

Mr. Simmon, Welcome back from your short, self imposed hiatus. With that said, where/how/why/when did you conjure a thought of me making such accusations against the (almost assembled) Trump administration of 'broken promises' that YOU are now injecting into your erroneous as well ambiguous inference. Would you like me to invent something for you? Better yet, taken from my original suggestion, (you'll find it most helpful to your interpretations and reply logic) try this. With more vigor this time: Re-read my text. If you still have difficulty comprehending it, I might have to break it down one word at a time for you.

Hint: The former precedes the latter comparison .......separated by the word 'and'......  Got it now?

TRUMP ->  WHY DOES ANTIFA NEVER ATTACK BIKERS FOR TRUMP?

President insults leftists during social media summit

The president made reference to the Antifa attack on gay Asian journalist Andy Ngo in Portland last month.

“Do you ever notice they pick on certain people?” asked Trump.

"Did you ever notice they don't come after Bikers For  Trump?"@realDonaldTrump calls out ANTIFA for the wussies that they are.

“He would tell you he’s not the toughest person physically in the world – they don’t go after Bikers For Trump, you ever notice that, they don’t go after our construction workers who love us, they don’t go after the police,” he added.

Trump went on to further insult far-leftists, joking, “They live in the basement of their mom’s home,” while asserting that they all had skinny arms.

“But they have the black masks on and they have sticks, they hit people in the face, in the head.”

“But you ever notice Antifa’s never there when we have a bikers rally….they’re never around, they’re always there when you have a single guy protesting in front of a school,” said Trump.

Trump then made reference to his administration’s move to withdraw federal funding from educational institutions that don’t allow free speech on campus.
