“Is anybody here willing to give up the big pay raise you just got?” Trump said, asking for a show of hands. “You haven’t gotten one in more than 10 years. More than 10 years. And we got you a big one. I got you a big one. I got you a big one.”

bless you heart.

There is no what now? Meaning that anything of actual context is not relevant in your estimation and the entire reason to post was to exclaim that someone lied?


Are you 6?

he lied

thats the context

what obama did and tax increases are not relevant at all

You do understand that in judging someone for actions that there exists precedent and circumstance. You know, context.

you're cute.

can you explain his own words here -

“They had plenty of people that came up. They said, ‘You know, we could make it smaller. We could make it 3 percent. We could make it 2 percent. We could make it 4 percent.’ I said, ‘No. Make it 10 percent. Make it more than 10 percent.’


I already did. You're assuming that "it" is the individual pay raise of members of the military and not the 10% raise to the entire military budget. But, given the numbers he is using, the notion that he's actually talking about individual pay raises makes no sense.

Just admit you like trolling because you feel powerless in society.

Or grow some balls and not make your op title a question.

I only wish the anti-Trump cynics, and those who assume the worst motives in others without evidence, would receive the same kind of scrutiny from an army of "fact checkers" and word police. If I wasn't so ardent of my principles I'd say you all need a taste of your own medicine.

I wonder how many people actually listen to the full 25 mins to put any kind of contexts to this 30 seconds of it...One thing is this is the biggest pay raise since Bush, so Trump isn't too far off on that though we all know that thy got their measly 1.X% per yea...

Trump is also right about the military budget in the last 10 years... If Trump came out and said "I got you all a 10% pay raise" then yes he is lying...but that is not what he said, only what people here are assuming. If people have time go to the last 5 seconds and hear the cheering...

I think this is why you post these crap stories.

Some people crave any type of attention, some even get off on it, sad.

Ugh, you are waaay too slow to respond.

I got to get back to work.

I don't have any time left to pad your fragile ego.

You should stick to the ops like the one you started asking how to wash your butt. That one was classic.

his words -

And you just saw that because you just got one of the biggest pay raises you've ever received -- unless you don't want it. Does anybody here -- is anybody here willing to give up the big pay raise you just got? Raise your hands, please. Ah, I don't see too many hands. Okay, don't give it up. It's great.

You know what? Nobody deserves it more. You haven't gotten one in more than 10 years -- more than 10 years. And we got you a big one. I got you a big one. I got you a big one. They had plenty of people that came up. They said, "You know, we could make it smaller. We could make it 3 percent. We could make it 2 percent.

We could make it 4 percent." I said, "No. Make it 10 percent. Make it more than 10 percent." Because it's been a long time. It's been more than 10 years. It's been more than 10 years. That's a long time. And, you know, you really put yourselves out there, and you put your lives out there. So congratulations.


ya, he's talking about the budget.

Total BS?

You have no clue what youre talking about.

Tell me what tax increases took place during those years that might have affected my paycheck? Lets see if youre paying attention.


You are making the claim...provide the proof..


What you want a copy of my LES?

Soliciting for personal information is against the T & C.

You mean the media took his words out of context and twisted them to mean something else?

Oh well. Don't we all wish we didn't have to pay taxes.
My income would be bigger too.

The basic pay raises since 2007:
1 January 2007: 2.2%
In the last 12 years Obama gave the 3 largest raises. Except for the fact that no President gives or doesn't give these raises. it is an automatic calculation.

1 April 2007: 0.5%
1 January 2008: 3.5%
1 January 2009: 3.9%
1 January 2010: 3.4%
1 January 2011: 1.4%
1 January 2012: 1.6%
1 January 2013: 1.7%
1 January 2014: 1.0%
1 January 2015: 1.0%
1 January 2016: 1.3%
1 January 2017: 2.1%
1 January 2018: 2.4%


Obama care taxes for the 2014 year wiped that raise away and I actually wound up with a pay cut.
