Non-liberals. They are in charge of taking and destroying, not elevating and improving.

"We" are the patriotic Americans. The "actual" Americans, not the fake ones that simply have a US zip code but hate the President and the country.

to be fair, not having governmental majority any longer... he needs "We"

We The People need more "We" than "Me" from those elected.

In an address to the nation since taking office, as I specifically said?

Huh.

You don't pay attention to Trump, and you don't do any social media... as in zero social media... yet you see Trump taking credit for a great many things on Twitter.

This would seem to be rather contradictory.

You know what. I'm going to just drop this, let it fall, and back away.

You have a nice evening, Bee.

Not in the least. I have zero social media accounts. I do look at the news crawl regularly and when I post a Trump Tweet here in the forum its from a news article. I read those because the Twitter responses are often hilarious.

I will, same to you.

Difference is he was the driver of the things he takes credit for. Lefties want to take credit for **** they had nothing to do with, you know like all the new jobs and growing economy. Doesn't matter to them that those things were in the ******* while the lefties had their little muslim in office for eight years. I laugh my *** off every time I hear some leftist loon or the little muslim saying Trump didn't make all that happen. Trump waved the magic wand O talked about...

"We" are the people who welcome people regardless of "race, religion, creed, color, or national origin".
The Left has decided those are the points of interest they want "We" divided by.

imthink when you say using the word we is a strategy you ares aying the president is disengenuous. Thats the way i read it anyway. You constantly argue for the progressive viewpoint so maybe is ee things you say in that light.

"WE" : Patriotic Americans

"WE": An open invitation to anyone in the Resistance who would like to change their thinking and improve America.

Anyone remember "Ask not what your Country can do for you....ask what you can do for your Country"

It just "shows to go ya' "...great Adulterers can also be great* Presidents. *great: good decisions outweigh super stupid decisions.

From the moment of his inauguration, his addresses have always been dominated by "we", it has never not been the case.

I thought the "we" was meant as those that voted for him. We all know that the liberals want no part of him and his policies.
