Donald Trump vs. the United States of America

Just the facts, in 40 sentences.

Sometimes it’s worth stepping back to look at the full picture.

He has pressured a foreign leader to interfere in the 2020 American presidential election.

He urged a foreign country to intervene in the 2016 presidential election.

He divulged classified information to foreign officials.

He publicly undermined American intelligence agents while standing next to a hostile foreign autocrat.

He hired a national security adviser who he knew had secretly worked as a foreign lobbyist.

He encourages foreign leaders to enrich him and his family by staying at his hotels.

He genuflects to murderous dictators.

He has alienated America’s closest allies.

He lied to the American people about his company’s business dealings in Russia.

He tells new lies virtually every week — about the economy, voter fraud, even the weather.

He spends hours on end watching television and days on end staying at resorts.

He often declines to read briefing books or perform other basic functions of a president’s job.

He has aides, as well as members of his own party in Congress, who mock him behind his back as unfit for office.

He has repeatedly denigrated a deceased United States senator who was a war hero.

He insulted a Gold Star family — the survivors of American troops killed in action.

He described a former first lady, not long after she died, as “nasty.”

He described white supremacists as “some very fine people.”

He told four women of color, all citizens and members of Congress, to “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime-infested places from which they came.”

He made a joke about Pocahontas during a ceremony honoring Native American World War II veterans.

He launched his political career by falsely claiming that the first black president was not really American.

He launched his presidential campaign by describing Mexicans as “rapists.”

He has described women, variously, as “a dog,” “a pig” and “horseface,” as well as “bleeding badly from a facelift” and having “blood coming out of her wherever.”

He has been accused of sexual assault or misconduct by multiple women.

He enthusiastically campaigned for a Senate candidate who was accused of molesting multiple teenage girls.

He waved around his arms, while giving a speech, to ridicule a physically disabled person.

He has encouraged his supporters to commit violence against his political opponents.

He has called for his opponents and critics to be investigated and jailed.

He uses a phrase popular with dictators — “the enemy of the people” — to describe journalists.

He attempts to undermine any independent source of information that he does not like, including judges, scientists, journalists, election officials, the F.B.I., the C.I.A., the Congressional Budget Office and the National Weather Service.

He has tried to harass the chairman of the Federal Reserve into lowering interest rates.

He said that a judge could not be objective because of his Mexican heritage.

He obstructed justice by trying to influence an investigation into his presidential campaign.

He violated federal law by directing his lawyer to pay $280,000 in hush money to cover up two apparent extramarital affairs.

He made his fortune partly through wide-scale financial fraud.

He has refused to release his tax returns.

He falsely accused his predecessor of wiretapping him.

He claimed that federal law-enforcement agents and prosecutors regularly fabricated evidence, thereby damaging the credibility of criminal investigations across the country.

He has ordered children to be physically separated from their parents.

He has suggested that America is no different from or better than Vladimir Putin’s Russia.

He has called America a “hellhole.”

He is the president of the United States, and he is a threat to virtually everything that the United States should stand for.

The time is coming soon when every American will need to take a position on Trump and make their voice heard.

Any random handful of these 40 items is more than enough to render Trump unfit for office.

In just 40 short sentences, David has written 40 pieces of Opinion.

Or you could simply note it's one more seed of rabid anti-Trump rhetoric posted by one of the army of Trump haters populating NT.

Which of the 40 items do you believe are incorrect? 

3.2  seeder  JohnRussell  replied to  XDm9mm @3    5 months ago

Let's look at one "minor" item.

He waved around his arms, while giving a speech, to ridicule a physically disabled person.

Trump says, "now you gotta see this guy" and then IMMEDIATELY begins to spasm and flail his arms to represent someone with a physical disability in their upper body. Which is what the person Trump was mocking has. 

It is embarrassing to see the president of the United States (or a candidate for, which Trump was at the time) act this way. It demeans our culture.  It should not be accepted. Period.

Actually, it is and has always been, 'Donald J. Trump vs everyone and everything that isn't Donald J. Trump.'

He is not representing America, he is following the Bannon playbook making very clear efforts to "tear it all down" and while his ignorant followers bought into the fake patriotism believing all Trump really wanted to do is "shake things up" or tear down the Republican party who did not give the extreme right wing evangelical base what they really wanted, Trump is exploiting their support to really and truly just "tear it all down" because Trump is the real "globalist" with a vast global empire of real estate that is constantly growing. Trump and his family owe no allegiance to America when they can turn a profit and exist on a global income.

It looks like this list needs to be updated regularly.
