We don’t have a president.
We don’t have a president and Trump’s lack of compassion for a fallen Gold Star hero exhibits this.
Myeshia Johnson, the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson, a fallen Gold Star hero deserved compassion. She didn’t receive that and later Trump accused her of lying about their phone call. Trump is a liar and since Myeshia Johnson had the phone call on speakerphone others heard how Trump disrespected her. Trump isn’t a president. A primary role of a president is to be a consoler to the families of our fallen heroes.
The White House thought that trotting out Chief of Staff Kelly would help in Trump’s horrible treatment of La David Johnson’s family. Kelly immediately made matters worse. He insulted Congresswoman Frederica Wilson and lied about her speech regarding a FBI field office in Miami in 2015. Did the White House relent when they were shown a videotape of Congresswoman Frederica Wilson’s speech? No, they followed Trump’s methods and continued attacking. The article’s headline “Huckabee Sanders on media challenging Kelly: It’s highly inappropriate to get into a debate with a four-star Marine general” tells how the White House is attempting to quell dissent and stifle our free press.
Trump appeals to the baser instincts of his rage filled supporters. Trump could have predicted that Congresswoman Frederica Wilson would receive threats, which she is.
Senator Flake regarding Trump’s disgusting behavior said this “How many more disgraceful public feuds with Gold Star families can we witness in silence before we ourselves are disgraced?”
We don’t have a president and Trump’s bullying has made the world less safe with North Korea.
The article “Trump’s bullying has made it impossible for diplomacy to work with North Korea” states “U.S. President Donald Trump’s remarkable decision to rebuke his own secretary of state’s attempt at pursuing diplomacy with North Korea last week was a dangerous move at a dangerous time.
Trump took to Twitter to urge Rex Tillerson, who was in China to discuss North Korea among other matters with top Chinese officials, to save his energy, adding that the United States would “do what has to be done””.
We don’t have a president and Trump’s decertification of the Iran deal makes our country less safe.
The article “Iran deal decertification makes us less safe” states “No one disputes that the regime in Iran is dangerous, and everyone wants to find a way to stop its destructive behavior in the Middle East and beyond. The choice to “decertify” the Iran deal, however, won’t get us closer to those goals. In fact, it makes us less safe.”
We don’t have a president and Trump doesn’t know what he has done to the Affordable Care Act.
The article “Trump is totally clueless on health care. The last 24 hours proved it.” states “President Trump has seemed clueless about health care before — but perhaps never so much as over the last 24 hours.
Early Tuesday, Trump decided upon a justification for his controversial decision to cancel Obamacare payments to insurers that subsidized policies for low-income Americans: The insurance companies are getting rich off this stuff, he claimed.
His argument was dubious at best; insurance companies are making lots of money, but not on Obamacare plans. And not only that, but Trump then suggested at a news conference that he actually supported a newly struck deal that would restore the payments that he had said were lining insurance-company pockets.
And then he did a 180. He told the Heritage Foundation later Tuesday that “Congress must find a solution to the Obamacare mess instead of providing bailouts to insurance companies.” Then he tweeted the same Wednesday morning.”
U.S. citizens will die as a result of losing health care due to this tactic of Trump.
We don’t have a president and Trump doesn’t know what to say about the GOP’s main initiative—the tax cut for the rich.
The article “9 ways Trump’s tax plan is a gift to the rich, including himself” describes how the GOP is simply trying to help their fat cat 1% donors once again. It lists the ways and concludes “When reporters asked Trump whether the tax plan would help him personally, he quickly said no.
“No, I don’t benefit. I don’t benefit,” Trump said. “In fact, very, very strongly, as you see, I think there’s very little benefit for people of wealth.”
Rep. Kevin Brady (R-Tex.), who was part of the team that worked with the White House to craft the tax-overhaul outline, was asked a similar question on Fox News. He, too, said this plan does little to help the rich.
“I think those who benefit most are middle-class families struggling to keep every dollar they earn,” Brady told Fox News.
But one look at this plan tells a very different story. It gives an outright tax cut to the wealthiest Americans and it preserves almost all of the most popular loopholes they use to reduce their tax bills.
Sen. Patrick J. Toomey (R-Pa.), a strong proponent of tax cuts, was more straightforward this week. He told reporters, “This is a supply-side approach,” another way of saying trickle-down economics.”
Reagan’s supply-side tax cut worked so poorly that he raised taxes more times than any other president and his GOP successor Bush 41 called it voodoo economics.
Trump doesn’t know the provisions of the bill as his contradictory statements regarding 401k limits most clearly exemplifies this. Trump is also happy to lie to his red state supporters.
We don’t have a president and our former Presidents are putting Trump in place.
The article “Why Obama and Bush's synchronised attacks on Donald Trump matter” states ““Our politics seems more vulnerable to conspiracy theories and outright fabrications,” said George W Bush, who occupied the White House from 2001 to 2009.
Barack Obama, who held office from 2009 to just nine months ago, said politics appeared “so angry and nasty”. “Instead of our politics reflecting our values, we have politics infecting our communities,” he declared.”
Our country is facing problems and Trump’s words are exacerbating them as the article states ““Traditionally, during periods we are most polarised, the former presidents try to bring the country together,” said Barbara Perry, director of presidential studies at the University of Virginia’s Miller Centre.
“Then you have Donald Trump who is utterly unprecedented in that he has no military or political experience and who does not recognise the political norms. That is why he was elected.””
We don’t have a president and Trump is imploding.
The article’s headline ““I Hate Everyone in the White House!”: Trump Seethes as Advisers Fear the President Is “Unraveling”” summarizes how Trump is becoming unstable.
The article “Bob Corker sounds like he’s making a case for removing Trump from office” states “Sen. Bob Corker said a lot of things about President Trump on Tuesday morning. The Tennessee Republican warned that Trump's itchy Twitter finger could set off another world war. He suggested Trump is a liar. He said Trump's legacy will be “debasing” America. He said Trump is not a role model for children. He declined to say whether Trump should be trusted with the nuclear codes. He said Trump's conduct is “very sad for our nation.” He said Trump has “proven himself unable to rise to the occasion.””
Corker was an early supporter of Trump. What is Corker going for? The article states “Which leads to the next question: If you truly believe all of that, wouldn't you also believe that Trump should be removed from office?
Corker's comments sure seem to be trending in that direction — whether he intends it or not…
Depending upon whom you ask, that could be approaching grounds for impeachment — or the less likely option of removal via the 25th Amendment, in which Trump would be declared unfit by his own Cabinet.”
We don’t have a president and Trump is getting his Justice department to usurp powers that a president doesn’t possess.
The article “Donald Trump Can Destroy Records Without Judicial Review, Justice Department Tells Court” states “Deleted tweets? Purges of phone records? The erasing of secretly recorded conversations? The Trump Administration tells a D.C. judge that courts can't review compliance with preservation laws….
In a court filing Friday, not only do attorneys at the Justice Department say that courts can't review this, but they also argue that when it comes to laws pertaining to government record-keeping, judicial review would be inappropriate even if Trump deleted secret recordings with administration officials or even if his staff purged phone records because they expected to be subpoenaed in connection with various investigations.”
I guess Trump has nothing to hide. What happened to the Freedom of Information Act?
We don’t have a president and Trump colluded with the Russians to win the election.
Mueller is going to make Trump wonder if cheating us out of a fair election was worth it.
Does a competent presidential candidate hire Manafort? The article “Manafort Had $60 Million Relationship With a Russian Oligarch” details how deeply Trump’s campaign manager was in the pockets of a cohort of Putin as it states “Deripaska was described in a 2006 U.S. diplomatic cable as “among the 2-3 oligarchs Putin turns to on a regular basis.””
The article “Report: Russian lawyer who met with Trump Jr. discussed memo with Kremlin” details how the Russian lawyer who wanted to peddle information that was derogatory to Clinton was under the control of Putin.
The article’s headline “Trump Data Guru: I Tried to Team Up With Julian Assange” summarizes how the Trump campaign colluded with Russia as it states “Alexander Nix, who heads a controversial data-analytics firm that worked for President Donald Trump’s campaign, wrote in an email last year that he reached out to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange about Hillary Clinton’s missing 33,000 emails.”
The article’s headline “Trump Campaign Staffers Pushed Russian Propaganda Days Before the Election--Kellyanne Conway and Donald Trump Jr. pushed messages from an account operated from Russia’s ‘troll farm’—including allegations of voter fraud a week before Election Day.” details how the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians to cheat us out a fair election.
The article’s headline “Exclusive: First charges filed in Mueller investigation” details how the beginning of the end is occurring for Trump.
The article “Trump, Republicans steer Russia probes in new directions” states “President Trump and Republicans in Congress are demanding new scrutiny of Hillary Clinton’s actions as secretary of state, potentially jeopardizing investigations of Russian meddling in the 2016 election just as the probes are closing in on Trump’s inner circle.
In the span of a week, House and Senate Republican leaders announced two investigations into Obama-era decisions involving a uranium deal that increased Russia’s share of the U.S. nuclear market — and another into how the FBI handled Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was secretary of state….
Democrats have cried foul, charging that the investigations are a blatant strategy to distract attention from the investigations into Trump’s alleged Kremlin ties, and suggesting the White House may be improperly working to assist the GOP’s efforts.”
Trump knows Mueller is closing in on him. It is just a matter of time. Trump will sacrifice anyone to evade Mueller.
We don’t have a president.
A primary functioning of a President is to be a consoler-in-chief and nowhere in Trump’s dark soul does he possess the compassion to perform that role. Trump doesn’t care about international and domestic policy and we have reported that. His incompetence will cause deaths. A president wouldn’t defame a Congresswoman and threaten our free press, and force the Justice Department to change precedents to do his bidding.
A president wouldn’t collude with Russians and have a campaign manager as conflicted as Manafort.
We like to cite our sources because without doing so our statements chronicling Trump’s disgusting behavior and incompetence would seem absurd.
We have a failed, lawsuit riddled, bullying, conman, real-estate developer and TV reality star masquerading as president. When you look at Trump through this lens his egregious behavior is understandable.
