Trump’s Ignorance of History is a National Embarrassment

don

I am completely convinced that Donald Trump was given a high school diploma and a sheepskin from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania if he promised not to attend classes. He has frequently proven that he knows nothing about anything; especially the history of ours or any other nation.

It’s obvious that Trump believes that the White House is in Florida. It is also apparent that Melania has convinced him that she cannot live in the White House because she was not born in the United States. A few days ago he told us that an “armada” of U.S. Naval vessels were headed for North Korea, although they were 3,000 miles away in the Indian Ocean. Finally, I know that he believes every lie he tells.

A recent statement by your ignorant and illegitimate president embarrassed our nation and offered additional proof of Trump’s lack of knowledge about everything.

In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Trump stated that China’s President, XI Jinping “went into the history of China and Korea … and you know, you’re talking about thousands of years … and many wars. And Korea actually used to be a part of China.”

Of course the social media went viral; many offering to teach Trump world history and a little geography.

Although I am aware that North and South Korea split in 1948, and that the small nation was never a part of China, I will not claim that I knew the origin of the two nations; nor is it important in my life. But I thought it might interest you, the reader.

The “Gojoseon (Old Joseon) kingdom was founded in northern Korea and Manchuria in 2333 BC. … From the 1st century, Goguryeo, Baekje, and Silla grew to control the peninsula and Manchuria as the Three Kingdoms (57 BC – 668 AD) until unification by Silla in 676.”

Now we both know.

South Korea was very upset for the second time in three days. When Trump either lied, or simply didn’t know about his Navy being 3,000 miles away, while claiming it was headed for the coast of North Korea, a candidate for the presidency of South Korea said that Trump could not be trusted to tell the truth.

South Korean daily newspaper Korea Joonang Daily said in an editorial: “We are dumbfounded that the leader of 21st-century China made such a ridiculous claim. If Trump really conveyed Xi’s words correctly, it is nothing but a grave challenge to the identity of the Korean people. “

It added: “As China’s power has grown remarkably over the last three decades, China’s historical perception is increasingly taking a worrisome turn.”

Trump has proven that he knows nothing about the history of America, and now the whole world is learning that the United States of America has not only an immoral fake-president; we also have an ignorant leader who chooses to believe anything without verifying facts. What should we expect from a man who learns about world events from FOX Noise, Breitbart, and Alex Jones?

How much longer must we put up with a buffoon in the White House? Our nation will never survive four years of a Trump administration. Time for him to go; and the reasons are many. From violations of ethics laws, his acts of sexual assault, to crimes against the Constitution, he must be removed from office.
