Trump Encourages School Shootings and Mass Murders

Updated on March 13, 2018

On January 24, 2016, a website called reported that while Donald Trump was making a speech, he commented that he was so popular that he could walk down a street shooting people and he'd still get votes. At the time, Trump was running for President. The street he mentioned was 5th Avenue, a crowded street in a busy part of New York city. To quote Trump directly, he said, "I could stand in the middle of 5th avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn't lose voters". A normal person would ignore the remark, and would dismiss it as the ravings of a lunatic, but a mentally unbalanced individual would be inspired by it. A mentally unbalanced individual would be inspired to get a gun, and go out and shoot someone. The gunman would reason that, if Donald Trump is casually talking about shooting people on a busy street, then it must be OK to shoot people on a busy street.

We did not have long to wait before the next mass murder actually occurred. On June 12, 2016, just a few months after Trump made the remark, a gunman went on a shooting spree in a night club in Miami, Florida, killing 49 people. In 2017, there was a mass murder at the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada, where at least 58 people were killed and approximately 500 were injured. To the sick mind of a gunman, Trump's mention of shooting people on crowded 5th avenue is an endorsement of mass murder, it's a call to action. It's a message that tells their sick minds to get their guns and start firing bullets in public. Trump is their hero, he is their role model.

If an Arab politician in some middle eastern country had made a remark about shooting people on a crowded street like 5th Avenue, the international community would label him as a terrorist and they would label his country as a rogue state, and they would be accused of state-sponsored terrorism. The atmosphere of terror and fear that Trump is promoting is exactly what the Republican party wants. They want people to be afraid of getting shot, so they won't go out and vote for Democrats. Should I remind you that there were more than 40,000 psychiatrists and psychologists who signed a petition that said Trump was insane, and therefore he was unfit for office? I guess Trump supporters don't want to talk about that issue, because Trump supporters are cowards.

So, if we are still watching Trump's antics, we must ask, what has Trump been up to lately? Well, the latest disaster from the Trump administration is Trump's plan to visit the leader of North Korea and have a talk with him. It's insane! It is a mistake to visit North Korea after we've labelled it as a rogue state and boycotted it! It was only a few weeks ago that there was a bizarre exchange between the North Korean dictator and Trump. The North Korean dictator said that he had a nuclear button on his desk, and Trump replied by saying 'my button is bigger'! Trump generally doesn't do too well with diplomacy, anyway. It was reported in the news media in May, 2017, that when Trump visited Europe for a NATO meeting, he shoved the Prime Minister of Montenegro out of the way, so Trump could get closer to photographers, to have his picture taken. There was also a video of Trump shoving the Prime Minister. So, when Trump visits North Korea, will he shove the North Korean Prime Minister? I hope not, because they've got nukes! If Trump starts a war while he is in North Korea, we are all obligated to support the war effort. It is my sincere wish that Trump and all of his supporters will be punished to the fullest extent of the law.
