So it’s like you’re the saviour of the Ukraine.” 2:11 Trump on photograph of him with Lev Parnas: ‘I take thousands of pictures’ Trump on photograph of him with Lev Parnas: ‘I take thousands of pictures’ “All Jew people of Ukraine, they are praying for you,” Fruman says, as Parnas tells Trump to show the gift to Jared Kushner, the president’s Jewish son-in-law and senior adviser, to explain its meaning. In the video, it appears Fruman is seated across the narrow part of the rectangular table and one seat over from the president.

In the scheme of things, appointees of a prior President of the WRONG PARTY are expecting their exit. If she got cocky about her immunity to trash realDonaldTrump in a foreign country, HIS ANGER ought to have been expected. 'Fire the b-tch', quite within his RIGHTS... dawwwww? If Trump wanted Yovanovich fired a year before Biden's announcement to campaign for Pres.. It blows up Democrats Impeachment. This was a bases for the impeachment since the Dem's were saying that Trump wanted him removed as an opponent for the Presidency.
Parnas said she was talking badly about him and she was an Obama appointee so his reaction was to fire her. I think it grew into a wider 'plot' but I can understand why he would say this. Why the whole thing was recorded is a bigger question. How many Ambassadors did Obama get rid of? She didnt like him. Wanted him impeached. Regardless of anything, he can replace the ambassador for farting too loud lets talk about the Corona virus now.
Did u no that Obama fired over two hundred of Bushes appointees. Not a word was said . Go around talking shit about your boss and see how long until you are unemployed. Cant figure out why this is a problem. She isnt an elected official. Bye bye 'take her out' Sounds like he's ordering an assassination 😖
Ambassadors are there to serve the President. President has full right to hire and fire any of his staff. This is part of the reason for the Impeachment unelected official's wanting to make policy which isn't their job, their mad bc the President is making policy, his job! That's how reality works lol! The boss can fire your ass. If you work against the company. In this case the POTUS can fire any ambassador that works against the their own country. Hell in Canada or the UK would do the same thing. usa RealityCheck Truth MAGA2020
Tape given to House appears to connect Trump to key probe figureABC News reported that a speaker who appears to be Trump says on the recording, ``Get rid of her! Get her out tomorrow. I don't care. Get her out tomorrow. Take her out. OK? Do it.'' Good Still nothing to report on JT and LavScam? Don’t let the fact that he can fire anyone he wants get in the way of your story
Donald Trump pretended to be a Adolfo Hitler ? Is that another psychopath and was he wrong in the country? because American won't allow Hitler in USA 🇺🇸. Another great move by a great POTUS. All just some bad but non serious talk. She stayed on for 14-15 months after this supposedly happened Sad State of Affairs which will likely go down in the history books as possibly unprecedented.
👍 The question is not if or how, the question is always WHY. Why did he want her out? What did she know and what did he thought she knew? It's just another puzzle-piece in that bic cover up that hot him impeached! Good he should fire people like her. what a liar and a scumbag...the video proves Trump lied to reporters and the American people. It proved Parnas was correct when he told CNN that Trump wanted Yovanovitch gone as she was an impediment to his corrupt plan!
That is his right to do. The ambassadors are suppose to represent the President. She didn’t even want to put his picture in the official office . You collect what you grow. Swamp cleaning is a tough business.
Impeachment trial highlights: Conspiracy theories and fidget spinnersDemocrats argued that U.S. President Donald Trump sought a phoney investigation of a political rival and pursued a discredited conspiracy theory about Ukraine , while restless senators played with a toy. LISTEN TO THE TRUTH AND WATCH THE FACTS ON THIS PROGRAM. Real Americans. Real honest people. Real truth by ALL Americans. NOT a political page, just straight forward people business. Canadian and American fans. Wonderful program. God bless them.
He also sait “take her out” as kill her Why is no one talking about the Toronto Trump Tower investor who was from Ukraine / Russia / Canada and had a direct contact to Donald. How does this connection compare to the Biden's?!!! ddale8 cnnbrk cnn ChrisCuomo AC360 andersoncooper I wish I had the legal ability to fire these Global “journalists” the way Trump has to fire any Ambassador for any reason, or no reason.
If it was only that easy to get him out that fast Another Obama appointee! And? He’s the President and she was terrible at her job. It’s completely within his purview. Stop trying to manufacture outrage, this isn’t news. At all. Who is recording a US president against his will, I don’t know the law but I’m guessing there’s a wee violation there
Why wont the Left report that Trump said right before that, 'Im tired of the corruption there'. Now do Justin Trudeau and Jody Wilson-Raybould... But in Canada’s case Justin actually attempted to obstruct justice 🤔
Trump impeachment trial: Democrats to make final opening arguments on 3rd dayOnce Democrats conclude their opening arguments, the president’s legal team will have up to 24 hours over three days to mount a defense. ✏️ When is it all over This should be easy. Trump2020

Trump, a late convert to cause, attends anti-abortion rallyU.S. President Donald Trump called it his 'profound honour' on Friday to be the first president to attend the annual anti-abortion gathering in Washington called the March for Life. It’s actually called March for Life rally. Sorry that title doesn’t appease you. Thank God for POTUS This view represents half of our population.
Impeachment trial: Trump’s lawyers argue president had valid reasons for freezing aid to UkrainePresident Trump’s legal team didn’t dispute the facts of the case laid out earlier by Democratic prosecutors, but they argued that the President’s actions were not a nefarious plot in foreign interference No, with realDonaldTrump out, there would still be a GOP POTUS. Another one of President Trump's cons. Wow this is what democracy looks like...only in America. Trudeau wasn’t removed for committing Obstruction of Justice as convicted by his own Ethics Commissioner, and Trump is going to trial for no actual crime at all...Canada could learn from the USA!!!
‘It’s just not acceptable,' Indigenous leaders say, as Ontario won’t commit to mandatory inquests for children who die in careThe Ontario government has been facing calls from Indigenous leaders, the provincial NDP and Ontario’s former children’s advocate to immediately ensure there are mandatory inquests when children die in care globepolitics They really have to. Because these folks are running amok inside there reservations. Its plain crazy. globepolitics As sad as it is there are a lot of teens committing suicide now a days for reasons we will never understand . Doesn’t matter if they are in foster care or at home living with their parents globepolitics Inquests that cover not only how these poor kids died but why they ended up in foster care in the first place would be a great idea. If there are over zealous social workers, bad gov policies or abusive parents or relatives, it needs to be called out.
