Trump’s Anti-American Actions

  1. Robert Mueller was appointed as Special Counsel to investigate Russian interference in the 2016 election and links between the Russian government and the Trump campaign. The actual order written by Rod Rosenstein can be found here.

Trump is Incompetent

9. Trump has a complete inability to manage or lead people. He can neither get people to work for him or can he keep his employees. One example would the Trump cabinet. Trump has had 9 cabinet members leave. In the first term of Reagan, H.W. Bush, Clinton, W. Bush, and Obama, the cabinet turnover was 6, 8, 4, 2, 3 respectively. Trump still has about 18 months to go on his first term and he has had 9 cabinet members leave. See this report from the Brooking Institution regarding turnover within the Trump Administration. In order to slow the official turnover of cabinet members, Trump has resorted to ‘acting’ cabinet members. It is difficult to tell how many of the offices around Trump are ‘acting’ as the situation is constantly in flux. The advisors that Trump does have, have no respect for him. Consider Rex Tillerson reportedly having called the President a ‘moron.’ Such would seem to be a logical observation. See ‘Idiot,’ ‘Dope,’ ‘Moron’: How Trump’s Aides Have Insulted the Boss from Politico for more on the ‘respect’ that Trump’s employees have for their boss. Is there anyone working for him that is not laughing at him?

Trump’s Policies Are Not Helping America or Its Allies

11. Trump pulled America out of the Paris Agreement. Does anything else need to be said about this?

Trump Does Not Know How To Behave Like a Normal Human Being

19. From the moment Trump announced he was running for President, he has been attacking Hispanic immigrants. He called Mexicans murderers, rapists, etc. When Trump announced his candidacy, illegal immigration was at the lowest numbers we have seen in years. Since Trump has been in office, illegal crossings have more than doubled. Trump wants to build a ridiculous wall that will achieve absolutely nothing. Trump has engaged in a very cruel policy for no other reason than to excite his base. After Trump’s comments about Latinos, is it any wonder that people call him a racist?

“Donald Trump is a poor person’s idea of a rich person.” It’s a pretty simple system, really: gold = rich. Columns = rich because banks have columns. Chandeliers = rich because they’re big and shiny.

34. Trump does not know how to behave in a proper manner. Mar-A-Lago was built by Marjorie Merriweather Post. Trump needs to become acquainted with another ‘Post’: Emily Post, the famed expert of etiquette. Perhaps a little etiquette training could help Trump not to commit faux pas like insulting the British Royal family before a visit. See ‘Nasty’ Debate Erupts over Trump’s Criticism of Meghan Markle Ahead of U.K. Trip from Politico. Had Trump learned to behave properly as a child, maybe he would not still be shunned by the ‘upper crust’ in Manhattan. See Blame New York for Donald Trump from the San Francisco Chronicle.

Conclusion

This story is an accurate description of the President of the United States and the description is disgusting. It is very hard not to just look away from this President’s behavior. Do not look away. It is every American’s patriotic duty to watch it all, analyze the man, and form an unbiased opinion based on the man’s behavior. This really matters. Steps must be taken to reduce the chances that such a terrible person can ever again be elected to lead our nation.
