Trump offered his respect and loyalty to another autocrat on Sunday evening. Without consulting the Pentagon, he ordered the removal of all American troops from the border between Turkey and Syria. This cleared the way for Turkish president/dictator Recep Tayyip Erdogan to send his army to crush the Kurds, an American ally, who have been defeating ISIS in the region. A draft dodger knows more than the generals.
A man who refuses to seek the advice of experienced and qualified men and women before making life-changing decisions is a fool. Trump does not have a “big brain,” he has proven himself to be a moron. The orange man has not made a single good decision since January 20, 2017. Rash and unilateral decisions result in chaos and often cause enormous damage to our nation.
Trump is leading our nation backwards. He has destroyed our nation’s credibility in the world. The world is a more dangerous place because of Donald John Trump. Our nation is living in fear because domestic, white terrorism has been ignored. A recovering economy, begun by President Obama, is showing signs of rushing towards another recession caused by another Republican president. Trump has already added one-trillion dollars to our national debt. He may be your president; he will never be mine.
