First of all, I think Donald Trump is a terrible person. I wouldn’t go so far as to call him a racist, but I understand why people hate him. On the other side, I think he has done an excellent job as president and has stuck to many of his campaign promises. If there was one thing I could change, it would be the tweeting. I believe that he should definitely tweet less. He’s really a pretty inclusive president and the only thing he’s ever done that was offensive to the LGBT community was not allow transgender people in the military. He has done a great job with our economy and seeing as Nikki Haley has declined to run in 2020, I will continue to support trump until her inevitable campaign.</p> Thu, 16 Aug 2018 16:42:17 +0000 https://esotalk.net/post/1136/ scuba - What're you listening to? https://esotalk.net/post/1135/ <p><a href='https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z-rdo-gMgbs'>grim - lund</a><br/><img src='https://t2.genius.com/unsafe/220x220/https%3A%2F%2Fimages.genius.com%2F1fc9609540bc15a968b4b1bc3841f69e.500x500x1.jpg'/></p> Thu, 16 Aug 2018 05:39:58 +0000 https://esotalk.net/post/1135/ scuba - What're you listening to? https://esotalk.net/post/1134/ <p><a href='https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PRXtbLqIx04'>Peach Pit - Peach Pit</a><br/><img src='https://images.genius.com/eb6a92cca6a543256153ebac5bc2d3e0.721x718x1.png'/></p> Thu, 16 Aug 2018 05:33:30 +0000 https://esotalk.net/post/1134/ a - good/upcoming albums of 2018 thread https://esotalk.net/post/1133/ <p>bongripper - terminal (july 6 2018)<br/><img src='https://f4.bcbits.com/img/a0938387168_10.jpg'/></p> Thu, 16 Aug 2018 02:08:36 +0000 https://esotalk.net/post/1133/ scuba - post https://esotalk.net/post/1132/ <p><img src='http://example.com/image.jpg'/></p> Wed, 15 Aug 2018 23:37:36 +0000 https://esotalk.net/post/1132/ soapisdead - post https://esotalk.net/post/1131/ <p><a href='http://example.com'>link text</a></p> Wed, 15 Aug 2018 21:27:22 +0000 https://esotalk.net/post/1131/ scuba - Vent post :D https://esotalk.net/post/1130/ <p>i don&#39;t wanna get into a bunch but you&#39;re <i>not</i> the only one</p> Wed, 15 Aug 2018 19:05:55 +0000 https://esotalk.net/post/1130/ admin - post https://esotalk.net/post/1129/ <blockquote><p><cite>Latemarx - <a href='https://esotalk.net/post/1127/' class='postLink'>go to this post</a></cite></p><p>Hide your post.</p></blockquote><p>Hide your kids.
