Among the responsibilities of a president is the safety of his people. Trump once again proves that he is unfit to wear the title of President of the United States of America.
When Trump made the foolhardy and unilateral decision to place tariffs on imports beginning a trade war with the second largest economy in the world, I believed he had reached the pinnacle of stupidity. I was wrong. A decision by Pompeo and Trump to assassinate one the leaders of the country of Iran, placed our nation and the world in great danger.
National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien told “Fox News Sunday” the Trump administration’s “maximum pressure campaign” was working, adding “Iran is being choked off, and Iran is going to have no other choice but to come to the table.”
In a Twitter post later Sunday, Trump cited O’Brien’s interview and wrote: “Actually, I couldn’t care less if they negotiate. Will be totally up to them but, no nuclear weapons and ‘don’t kill your protesters.’” A spokesman for O’Brien did not immediately comment.
I must ask several questions. First, has Trump forgotten about 9/11? There is no way to prevent multiple attacks against innocent Americans within our shores. Iran could be planning terrorist attacks in multiple cities as I write this. They could be organizing other attacks against America’s interests and civilians in every city in the world.
Second, why is he threatening a nation which does not fear an ignorant and illegitimate president? A real president; a competent administration; would seek diplomatic solutions first. Sadly, Donny Boy and his stooges have no idea what they are doing. Incompetence is the overriding trait in Trump’s circle of sinners.
It’s time for Democrats and Republicans to join together and retake the power of the legislative branch. Traitors including Moscow Mitch McConnell, and Lindsey Graham must be pushed aside for the security and safety of all Americans around the world. Trump is powerless if a united congress does its job.
Trump is unworthy of his party’s support and loyalty; he will display none to them. He has become our nation’s “public enemy number one.”
If he is allowed to act without oversight, Trump will be the primary reason for the beginning of WWIII, and the end of mankind. Sides will be drawn, and no one will hesitate to use nuclear weapons. Trump himself said; “I love wars, even nuclear wars.”
