For certain President Trump was not elected President. Once again the Electoral College installs a President. Only 20 Sates have to power to install a President.
Trump gave the go ahead for Keystone XL. Another war declared on Native Americans. So far he has handled most issues with incompetence.
He refused to condemn the support of a former KKK Grand Wizard.
He mocked and made fun of a disabled reporter over an old article.
He said he wouldn’t rule out using nuclear weapons in Europe.
Trump has very weird theories about the human body and sleeping.
Trump has made bold claims that 3-5 million illegals and dead people voted against him.
When questioned by a CNN reporter about Russian allegations, he walked out of the room with his head down.
Trump claimed that America was like a third world country during his campaign.
Trump lied about having the most Electoral College votes of any president and was confronted by a reporter.
Trump claimed that the media had a lower approval rating than Congress.
Trump’s refusal to release his tax returns, refusal to be transparent about claims he’s divested from his businesses, involvement of his children who are running his businesses in meetings with other world leaders, are a conflict of interest.
Within days of Trump taking office, the head of Trump Hotels management team announced hopes for a huge expansion and Trump’s Mar-A-Lago club new membership fees doubled to $200,000.00. Trump’s children are allegedly running his hotel business, but there’s no denying the Trump family is seeking to use the Trump brand as President of the US to monetary advantage, which is not only unethical but a gross abuse of the idea of a competitive market- it is what Republicans accused Obama of, “picking winners and losers.”
Except this time Trump is picking the winners to benefit his own family. And that isn’t going to go over well with the voters, and probably not with Trump Hotel competition.
The Trump Organization does or has done business in Argentina, Azerbaijan, Bermuda, Brazil, Canada, China, Egypt, Georgia, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Israel, Panama, Philippines, Qatar, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Korea, St. Martin, St. Vincent, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom and Uruguay. And, while serving as President, Trump, through his interest in the Trump Organization, will continue to receive monetary and other benefits from these foreign powers and their agents.
Examples of existing business arrangements that constitute violations of the foreign-emoluments clause include: China’s state-owned Industrial and Commercial Bank of China is the largest tenant in Trump Tower, and the state-owned Bank of China is a major lender to Trump. Trump’s business partner in Trump Tower Century City in Manila, Philippines.
Trump despises traditional media for exposing his lies and he loves digital media because it can be spun to support his false narrative. The post factual reality, fake news and alternate facts being spun by the Trump administration reads like an Orwellian nightmare. If this sounds like hyperbole you have not been following closely. If you need more proof simply watch Trump’s most recent tirades against the press. Trump needs to deride fact-based reporting as a matter of survival. He must discredit the press if he is to have a hope of fulfilling his dark agenda. This is a man who has declared war on the EPA. He wants to take away regulations that protect the air that people breathe and the water that people drink. This is a man who wants to remove sanctions against Russia so that Exxon can drill for oil in the Arctic.
In a page right out of 1984, Trump’s doublespeak consistently accuses others of what he himself is guilty of. This may have been the strategy behind Trump’s first solo press conference since November 8th. The February 16th spectacle was described by some as surreal. During his hour and 17-minute rant, he lambasted “dishonest media” and then went on to utter a bold faced lie about his popularity. This is a one-two combination that is Trump’s signature move. Attack those who would expose you then lay down a bed of lies for his base.
Trump made a bold claim that the murder rate of the United States is the highest it’s ever been in 47 years
Trump loves to tweet out murder rate statistics and they’re usually wrong on a hilarious level. During a meeting on February 7th, 2017 with members of the sheriffs of the white house, he stated that murder was the highest it’s been in 47 years. It’s actually decreased rapidly since 1995.
In 1995, 8 per 100,000 people were victims of homicide and that number had steadily dropped to 4.5 per 100,000 by 2013. That number did rise by 5.2% in 2016 but the murder rate is still relatively low compared to two decades ago.
We have a President who disregards the law and says insane things. Impeachment is immanent.
