Trump takes advice from no one in America. Experts on various issues are discounted. Even his own chosen advisers are seldom consulted when an issue becomes a serious problem. He occasionally listens to Jared Kushner and Ivanka. The only person he obeys is Russian President Vladimir Putin.
As far back as the 1980’s when Putin was a high-ranking officer in the KGB and the USSR was still in existence, the future Russian president’s primary goal was to force NATO to disband.
Military experts will agree that the North Atlantic Treaty Organization is the principal reason why there has not been a WWIII. Article five of the charter contains the promise that if one member of NATO is attacked, all members are under attack and are obliged to defend that member nation.
Trump is abandoning defense treaties on a regular basis. He is following orders from Putin and isolating America from the rest of the free world. The truth is that no country can stand alone in 2020. Sadly, Trump’s cult continues to believe a pathological liar.
I know I do not need to continue vilifying the worst illegitimate president in history. If you are not aware of the truth and the many crimes and mistakes made by Trump, the Trump Klan, and the his circle of sinners, once known as the Republican Party, you are in denial; you have chosen ignorance over fact.
The truth is that you are a member of the Trump cult, or you despise and reject the worst man in the world. There are no gray areas; you love or hate the fascist in the White House. You must also condemn his party which is led by America’s biggest traitor, Moscow Mitch McConnell. The worst senator in history eagerly surrendered the powers of congress to the executive branch in direct violation of the Constitution.
If America leaves NATO, the European Union has already agreed to form their own alliance without the United States. Our country will be in great danger of economic and physical attacks by our enemies. What worries me most is that our enemies are led by Trump’s closest friends: Vladimir Putin, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, and Kim Jong-un.
