    From disrespecting women, racial comments towards congress of color, separating children from parents, inhumanity of migrants seeking asylum and now the tariff war continues with a 10% increase. Our country is doomed and we need to impeach him NOW

    If those are your writing,  it's against rules to promote your own hubs in the forums.

    To the question.   Trump is a symptom.  He is not the source of the problem. I think,  with the advent of the echo chamber of the internet,  people stopped talking, stopped thinking and became entrenched in their own dogma.

      No, he is more than a symptom, he is a catalyst.

        I can agree with that and he needs to be stopped ASAP

    I think Trump has caused severe damage to this country. His hate has ravaged the American psyche. If the average American tweeted the hateful venom he does, they would be fired from their job. It's  time for voters to fire him and select a real leader who will strive to bring us together, not sit around tweeting hate and lies.

      Obviously you have never read the comments section of any political site or news site. Now with this latest incident you can go to any one you like CNN MSNBC you name it I don't care you pick one. You go to the comment section and you see the hate being poured out towards white people in general.. I'll tell you a comment that you will read continuously and that is if it was a black person they would have been shot instantly. And I'm going to tell you this if it was a black person the color of his skin would never have been mentioned. Now who is stirring this pot .social media .media Outlets.. a bunch of anonymous people with private accounts. And racist calling each other racist. Is a hateful mean inciteful medium that needs to be taken down. Well regulated to the hilt

            Most blacks don’t attack white people, yet we just witnessed a president tweeting go back we’re you came from if any person in the workplace said this they would be fired or written up. Yes I excepted black to retaliate and lash out because white people actions are showing

              Pretty sure I just witnessed a bunch of black people attacking white police officer in the streets Brooklyn. Pretty sure I just saw a video of black teens beating an Islamic man also. In Brooklyn also saw a video of a gang of black people attacking an innocent man all within the last week. Also read that over half the homicides in Baltimore last year were caused by single gunshot wounds to the Head. All black people. But I guess you haven't heard. You are quite the selective racist

            No, I didn't.say any of that nor do I believe it. I am saying that the man who is supposed to at least try to bring us together is intentionally saying hateful things in order to divide us. I will add that the man who should be shaming white supremacists refuses to do do.

                    I can agree that social media giants like Twitter and Facebook need to monitor hate speech, but within the framework of our constitutional right to free speech.

                  You should back off an argument when proven wrong. An albino is without pigment. If I were 'white' I'd need some type of bleach additive in the bath water because that color just isn't on my body.

              You remind me of my sister in law. She made a point of commenting on how beautiful her skin was and what a shame it was for people who were white, while nodding in the direction of my grand daughter and I. My granddaughter looked at her arm and informed her she wasn't white. Because no one's skin is white. Everybody has color. My granddaughter was about 8. She was too young to have been exposed to racist rhetoric such as that.

    Could he make the country worse?

    Of course he could.  He could lose jobs by renewing punitive tax rates and replace the business rules that have opened up thousands of jobs.  He could go back to ignoring unfair business practices and he could go back to nearly open borders, allowing anyone that wants in to come.

    He could return to the practices of the past, in other words, that caused our economy to grow so slowly and cost jobs, putting tens of thousands on the welfare roles - that would certainly hurt the country.

      Instead, he removes the "punitive" tax rate on himself and other billionaires and skyrockets the federal deficit and national debt.

      So much for Republican fiscal conservatism.

      And yes, he is making the country worse. Thanks to his skyrocketing debt, the sh-- will hit the fan when the next recession comes, which is now looking like early next year.
