If it’s not obvious to you now that Trump’s selections for his cabinet and advisory staff were chosen for a single purpose; to destroy the agencies they now lead; you’re not paying attention. Not one of Trump’s circle of sinners has the physicality of our nation, or the people as their primary focus. They are all about ‘profit before people.’
Trump’s Secretary of the Interior is a perfect example of someone who opposes his own department. Ryan Zinke was the sole Representative from Montana, and now holds this cabinet post.
A member of the United States Geological Survey, who is an expert on climate change, was scheduled to meet with Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg last weekend. They were to speak about the effects of climate change at Glacier National Park. Zinke ordered this individual to cancel his meeting. The consensus is that this is an effort to minimize the world’s focus on climate change; an issue where Trump stands alone among world leaders.
Zuckerberg kept his commitment and traveled to the Park.
“The impact of climate change is very clear at Glacier,” Zuckerberg wrote on Facebook. “In the last hundred years, the average global temperature has risen 1.5 degrees. But in the high elevations of Montana where Glacier is the temperature is warming at three times the global average — enough to melt glaciers.”
Trump hates facts, and only watches ‘fake news.’ His obsession with FOX Noise is more than alarming. For 20 years it has been the right wing propaganda machine, and nothing more. FOX began ‘fake news.’
Trump’s illegitimate presidency is an illusion. He is not ‘presidential’ in any manner, and refuses to place in priority the needs and wishes of the American people. Trump has destroyed our standing on the world’s stage. By denying the facts related to climate change, and thwarting trade agreements, America is no longer the leader of the free world. Angela Merkel, Chancellor of Germany, told the world that the European Union no longer believes that the President of the United States can be trusted, and that Europe cannot rely on America to be an ally. Trump has isolated our nation, and that is unforgivable in the 21st century.
Please re-post; thank you.
