Donald Trump Compares USA to Nazi Germany
Yes, you read that correctly.
Our President-Elect, who has an unnatural obsession with Twitter and his self-image, compared the United States of America to Nazi Germany this morning. Why? The same simple reason that he has spouted time and time again: the media displeased him.
Donald Trump’s Tweet reads:
“Intelligence agencies should never have allowed this fake news to “leak” into the public. One last shot at me.Are we living in Nazi Germany?”
It’s ironic that Mr. Trump would ask this question. While the president-elect feels he is the center of media scrutiny and is unfairly targeted, his policies and his opinions are actually what is damaging the United States and the American people. Trump whines about being scrutinized, but every leader in the history of the world has been scrutinized. When you’re the leader of the free world, of course all eyes will be on you, and not all opinions will be positive…EVER. This is something that most adults generally understand and accept as something that comes along with the job. Not Donald.
The irony in this tweet of course, is that while he accuses the media of crucifying him unfairly by comparing this beautiful country to Nazi Germany, he’s the one trying to silence the media by any means available. Silencing the media is one of the biggest steps toward modeling our country after Nazi Germany. When a President does not allow for freedom of speech in his country, no longer is he a President, but a dictator.
It’s no secret that Mr. Trump should choose his words more wisely, or not say anything at all being that his inauguration is in nine days. The President of the Untied States does not act so foolishly, with disregard and disrespect for his people, Mr. Trump. He does not accuse the wonderful, beautiful, and free, albeit troubled, best country in the world of being anything like the suppressive, wretched, and vile Nazi Germany. He does not concern himself with television ratings or slinging insults to celebrities. He does not argue with citizens of his country on a social media platform like a child. He does not lash out like a scorned, high school aged mean girl who didn’t get what she wanted. The President of the United States acts with thoughtful care, with poise, dignity, class, and intelligence. Certainly, he does not compare the United States of America, Land of the Free and Home of the Brave to Nazi-lead Germany.
As a concerned citizen, one must wonder, what will be Trump’s priority in office these next four years as President? If the current trend holds true, our next president will be skipping vital daily intelligence meetings designed to inform the president of crucal information pertaining to world events to instead blast his enemies and anyone who displeases him on Twitter and possibly, attempt to silence the rebel masses through legislation.
To answer your question, “Are we living in Nazi Germany?” Mr. Trump, we certainly are not. At least, not yet. That’s up to you, President-Elect, and the rest of the currently Republican lead government.
The next four years look bleak.
