TRUMP: A PROVOCATEUR, NOT A PRESIDENT

trump

America’s 45th president is a provocateur.
A trouble maker
An agitator.

 

A divisive anti-democratic smart aleck who knows nothing and cares nothing about America’s core values of decency, respect and civility. President Trump is not a policymaker. He cares nothing about legislation. He knows nothing of the intricacies of legislating or governing. He cares about “winning” and criticizing anyone who disagrees with him as “losers”.

 
The lousy and poorly prepared tax legislation will not help the middle class and will definitely help billionaires like Trump. He cares nothing about kicking less financially secure individuals off of government programs that help the less fortunate and special needs citizens in America.
In foreign policy, he tries to soothe his rapidly dwindling core of supporters with his call for recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. However, he signs a waiver to keep the American embassy in Tel Aviv for the next six months.
His Jerusalem statement is a provocation that will stir up resentment against the United States across the Arab world. This is no policy. This is Trump trying to stir the waters and take attention away from the investigation into his campaigns bizarre close ties with Putin and Russia.
As I have said before, and the Deutsche Bank revelations may show, all one has to do is follow the money and we will all know why Trump is so favorable to the thug Putin and his Russian authoritarian oligarchs.

No one was loaning money to Trump after his bankruptcies. It may be found out he is being so kind and weirdly nice to Russia because he has outstanding loans from some of Putin’s co-thugs. It is so odd that Trump trashes everyone and everything around the world except Putin. What is Trump’s Russian connection? We hope Mueller will find the answer to Trump’s love affair with Putin and Russia. One can imagine Trump trying to get Russia back into the upcoming Winter Olympics to curry more favor with Putin.
This is not the Manchurian Candidate but it is certainly bizarre behavior for an American President to be so enthralled by Putin and his terrible behavior towards his neighbors including Ukraine.
Comparing Trump to Reagan is an insult of the highest order to Reagan.
Our 40th president was everything that our 45th president is not. Reagan was a gentleman. Reagan was an optimist who saw America as a shining city on a hill as a beacon of democracy to the world to learn from our example.
He was a gentleman with a coherent foreign policy.
Trump is a total pessimist who always has a bad word to say about everyone who disagrees with him. He is a mean spirited, negative, incompetent liar.
Reagan was a very secure person. Trump is one of the most insecure people ever to hold America’s highest office.
Reagan stood up for our intelligence agencies and the FBI.

Trump, while never criticizing Putin, constantly trashes America’s intelligence agencies and the FBI.
Reagan had a foreign policy. Trump has none. Trump is a provocateur.
Trump makes light of a possible confrontation with North Korea by labeling their erratic leader “Little Rocket Man”. He has no real strategy for America’s role in the world. He has weakened America’s standing in the world with his really stupid “America First” comments that mean nothing and once again are used to shore up his shrinking base of support.
Listening to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson last week at the Wilson Center in Washington, D.C. , I was wondering who the former CEO of Exxon Mobil’s boss was and why they held such different views.
Tillerson, in his Wilson Center speech, was very tough on Russia and their aggression in Ukraine; he spoke out against Putin and he held up our “ironclad” commitment to our European and NATO allies. He spoke out against Assad’s brutality in Syria.
It was as if he had a different and more respected and representative foreign policy for the United States than his boss.  Either the current Secretary of State doesn’t speak to the president or more correctly, the president probably doesn’t really care what his Secretary of State has to say as Tillerson is, most likely, on his way out the door.
Gossip at the Tillerson talk going around was that the president would move Ivanka into our United Nations ambassador position and move Nikki Haley into the State Department top spot. Although, it would be very good to get Ivanka and her husband out of town and back to New York where they could do less damage, this probably won’t become a reality. Tillerson will probably be gone by the first part of 2018.
Trump supporting the reprehensible Alabama senate candidate, Roy Moore, is another disgraceful provocation by our 45 th president. Moore is a bad joke who might just make it to the U.S. Senate with the help of our president who will be campaigning in northern Florida mainly to help Moore’s campaign.
Moore and Trump are two peas in a pod. They are both people with no sense of decency who lie about their backgrounds with women and cloak themselves in self-righteous evangelical double talk.
Trump is a provocateur who is ruining America’s image at home and abroad.
His use of Twitter is a daily provocation against America’s values.

His use of a far right British organization’s disgusting videos on his twitter account was an all time low even for this president who could not condemn Neo-Nazis for their despicable acts in Charlottesville last summer.
Trump, the provocateur, is continuing on a daily basis his assault on America’s values. When will the GOP and other leaders say enough is enough?
The Atlantic article discussing VP Pence and Condi Rice stepping in to bring some decency to the White House sounds better by the minute.
And, really do you think we now believe that really wasn’t you in the disgusting Access Hollywood tape?
Grow up, Mr. President and put America ahead of yourself!
Trump won’t grow up and his provocations and scandals will continue to ruin America’s reputation at home and abroad as the Trump Era stands for anger, agitation and a sad pessimism that is enveloping our country.
It is hard to fathom that this sad state of affairs is actually happening in America at this moment.

 
Let’s hope for a brighter tomorrow as we begin the New Year.!
