Unfortunately, the Demoncrats wont do that. They did not in 2016 have any message or plans to do anything about helping the American people and now till 2020 they still don't.

The Demoncrats are still in complete bitterness, disappointment and the list goes on from losing the 2016 presidential election.

Now that the see they couldn't take Trump down with the fake "Russia collusion illusion case" then now what to bring up the fake obstruction phony and senseless argument.

https://countrymeters.info/en/United_States_of_America_(USA)#literacyLiteracy of population

According to our estimates 261,403,913 persons or 99% of adult population (aged 15 years and above) in United States of America (USA) are able to read and write. Accordingly about 2,640,444 adults are illiterate.

Literacy rate for adult male population is 99% (127,555,507 persons). 1,288,439 are illiterate.
Literacy rate for adult female population is 99% (133,848,407 persons). 1,352,004 are illiterate.

Youth literacy rates are 99% and 99% for males and females accordingly. The overall youth literacy rate is 99%. Youth literacy rate definition covers the population between the ages of 15 to 24 years.

Look at them,falling over themselves on a mere Mueller report.
Again,majority of Americans didn't expect anything tangible from the investigation.For the records,who started Mueller investigation??..the dems or the republicans??.some of you just like making baseless argument.mueller investigation is in the interest of American election santity devoid of any foreign intrusion not because Clinton lost.parties have been losing elections in the past,so you people should just suck it up and stop vilifying the dems as if they are the one holding the air you breath in.
If some of you didn't just come to US yesterday,you wouldn't have forgotten in a hurry what the Congress controlled republicans did Obama presidency.
At the end of the day,2020 is around the corner and if any of you is bold enough to back up your conviction on Trump with a challenge,am all waiting for you all.

I don't get what all this hullabaloo over America illiteracy level is all about.
If reading and writing alone is the only yardstick used for measuring literacy level,then it's fair to say 90% of Nigerians are also literate.

I don't think they did.because no vote were affected.those things you mentioned were simply campaign strategies cum propaganda.there were lot of them during the last Nigeria election.its left for the real "literate" ones to not fall for the bait but I agreed with you that the primary purpose of the investigation was about America security.

Am not sure many people expected something significant out of Mueller investigation.lets see what the full report contains anyway because the summarised version by the DOJ may be misleading. Whatever it is though,the potus can not be indicted on criminal charge while still in office.

Democrats don't want him out. He's easy to beat next election and they'd rather run against him than anyone else which is why Pelosi said it's not worth impeaching him. Plus Barr is the AG Trump wished he had with Sessions.

I could not find concrete percentages for the U.S. on either of those sites, which is weird bc almost every country reported those stats except for the U.s. I did find stats on wikipedia that said the US literacy rate is above 96% and another education site said 99%. But they all said literacy can be hard to measure bc there are different standards or measures used.

Because it's a blight on the country. All you have to do is look at annual USA rankings in math, English and science versus other countries

They tally up with us rankings. I used to get paid to crunch stats. The other numbers are a misinterpretation. The USA is NOT at 99% literacy.

"Compared with the PIAAC international average distribution of literacy skills, the United States had a larger percentage of adults performing at both the top and bottom of the distribution. Thirteen percent of U.S. adults age 16-65 performed at the highest proficiency level (4/5) on the PIAAC literacy scale, which was higher than the international average of 12 percent. Eighteen percent of U.S. adults performed at the lowest level of the PIAAC literacy scale (at or below Level 1), which was higher than the international average of 16 percent."

Nobody stops Trump from running his government so far he's doing so according to the laid down rules and regulations.America is not Trump organisation where he only calls the shots.am glad he's learning the rudiments of governance albeit the hard way.
On border securiry,every year Congress budget funds for that purpose and they can't go beyond what's is normal just because it is Trump.
If he so much loves America more than the millions others,he's rich enough to fund the wall from his pocket,nobody will stop him.You don't wake up one morning and started promising your fans border wall when you know it has to go through other channels.
Besides,is Mexico no longer paying for the wall ??.

If you mean the Africans, they were already doing that to themselves before they were now sold to the whites.

And as we speak unless we're in denial most African countries are still doing that to themselves by doing it in the disguise of having corrupted leaders leading most African countries.

Scenario. You own land and/or a home in Nigeria. I come along, squat, renovate it and live there. Then one day you decide you want your land and I order you to get off the property it's mine now. Do you a) accept that because I improved the land and go find land elsewhere or b) claim your right to it.

All these argument of yours is laughable. Do you know that if we go back in history, almost all countries on earth migrated to their present locations at one time or another and in most cases, they dislodged or dominated the original inhabitants thereof? So what are you suggesting? That everyone trace where they originated from and go back there? Or that citizens should have no rights to land if their earliest ancestors were not originally from their present countries? What a joke. America is for all Americans irrespective of when they arrived historically and the government of the US(The government of all Americans) has a constitutional right to use American land for the good of Americans and to protect the country for all Americans
