    The Paris Accord is done and will be  saving the US billions of tax dollars ,  on the way to fiscal responsibility ,  Why shouldn't Trump  invoke by legislation or by executive order the immediate defunding of ANY  tax breaks or by federal grants ANY  federal funding or supporting  of the arts that  popularly defile any public decency .  whether public T.V. , public  radio or any  organised entity of "hollywood" or liberal arts "in the park "?

    Is the political divide today being federally  funded ? Should it be ?   It has already incited a lot of political violence from the left  . This same left owns the media and liberal public arts .

    Defund  Tax  and Grant incentives to liberal media  now ?

      When studying the past, I admired the culture and status of 'patron of the arts' as gracefully shown by JFK and his wife Jacqueline. Then I flash forward today to a coarse and crude clown with a wife who has been a glossy centerfold. He only appreciation of the arts is through that of being a bullshyte artist.It is only then I realize just how far decency and decorum has fallen. The standard of the office is brought low to a level not seen before. Just another reason why Trump is the very definition of a 'low bar'. You don't need the so called liberal press to see that this is quite evident.

      So, am I not surprized that he attacks federal funding for the arts. Since he is on opposing ends from the progressive left, I consider him nothing more than rubbish who I patiently wait to have fall on his own sword.

        Credence , great , one more left lead innuendo to violence . to blood , to death . I would think another reference  this week to violence against a president might be considered an offensive statement  anyone with any decency , but the left does that just often enough to influence the nuts of the world to violent acts doesn't it ?
        Voted for Sanders didn't you .

        Why don't you just post a picture of you holding Trumps head so we can see how you REALLY feel?

          I guess if I said 'boo', the Right would consider that a violent assault against their reigning clown. This would justify Trump declaring martial law and sending all those dissenters to his gulags and 'readjustment camps'?

          Yes, I voted for Sanders as the only rational choice for me. When I saw photos and images of Obama at the end of a rope and assaulted in every imaginable fashion, do you think that I care about Trump and his thin skin wanting constant adoration, all of the time?

    I can't think of a good reason why he shouldn't defund them.  Here's what I think, Trump will just wait till the economy crashes...bye, bye funds.
