America can be well served by a Trump resignation.
If I question Trump’s actions, Trump supporters say I just hate him. Hate Trump? Of course not, but I do love my country. I don’t hate. Nazis killed my uncle in World War II. Do I hate Germans? Absolutely not. I have many German friends, as I lived there for several years.
Hate eats up people like the American Nazi who recently killed a young woman and injured 19 people by auto in Virginia. Those injured and killed were people protesting hate groups.
Trump, appears hesitant to condemn white supremacists groups, as they are obviously a major portion of his base support. These are the same groups that hate other Americans, specifically targeting Jews, blacks and those of Hispanic descent.
The American Nazi Party and the KKK praised and thanked Trump, giving him Nazi stiff-arm salutes, yelling hail Trump after Trump said the violence was on “both sides” in Charlottesville, Virginia. Further he said, “there are bad and good people on both sides.”
Personally, I don’t know any good Nazis or KKK members.
It is my opinion that Trump is a racist, based on his previous comments. His statements were chastised by many members of his own party, by almost all American businesses (his CEO business advisory group resigned in disgust) and by most of the world’s leaders (except Russians, who are laughing their heads off). Trump criticisms, include the Pope and the US Armed Forces Joint Chiefs of Staff.
Regarding Trump, I have been discouraged by his obvious lying and pick of white supremacists as top advisors. Trump has been called “a fake, a fraud” by former Republican Presidential candidate, Mitt Romney. Even, a strong Trump supporter, Sen. Corker of Tennessee recently stated that Trump has not demonstrated “the stability nor some of the competence that he needs.” Other Republican senators (Tim Scott (S.C.) and Dan Sullivan (Alaska) and two previous Republican presidents also faulted the President. Sen. Scott said Trump’s “moral authority has been compromised.”
It appears, Trump and some members of his family may be guilty of money laundering for the Russian mob, as he sold many of his condos at much higher prices than their regular retail asking price to shady Russian characters. Let the FBI sort that out. I hope he is not guilty of anything, not because I love Trump, rather, I love my country and his “legal” problems would only further hurt our country.
Recently, It was nice to see, some Republicans like Senators McCain, Collins and Murkowski put our country before party by voting against the disastrous Republican version of health care which was nothing more than a tax cut for the super wealthy and would have destroyed Medicare as we know it.
Even Trump called the Republican plan “mean”.
During the campaign, Trump stated that he could stand in the middle of Times Square and shoot somebody and his followers would still (blindly) support him.
I read last week that Mike Braun of Jasper, if elected to the senate “will fully support” Trump. No thanks, Mr. Braun. Our country just doesn’t need more blind followers of the Trump disaster giving Nazi salutes.
If Trump loved his country, he would resign.
If Republicans loved their country, maybe, they should ask themselves if they should support a Trump resignation and publically, fully and honestly condemn hate groups by name.
