Donald Trump is a man without principles or morals. He has no beliefs and no ideas which would preserve, protect, or defend the American people. It is obvious that he has no interest in representing all Americans. His attempt to please his supporters only is criminal. Trump has a single goal; soothe his fragile ego.
So, the big question is; ‘why did he want to be the President of the United States?’ The truth is that he didn’t. He loved the attention he received during his rallies, and that’s why he continues to hold them. He never believed that he could win against Hillary, even with help from Vladimir Putin.
Trump has two beliefs; wealth is power and white people are superior to all other races. The latter needed no more proof than when he spoke about the tragic events in Charlottesville Virginia yesterday.
A rally held yesterday called “Unite the Right” was organized by white supremacists. When a car drove into the crowd of marchers both pro and con regarding the theme of the protest, one person died and 19 were injured, Trump finally took a couple of minutes to address the American people.
“We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides, on many sides.” Really?
The American people need no more proof than that single sentence to prove that their illegitimate president is a white supremacist. In the past he has accepted the support of hate groups. He reads Breitbart regularly. He listens to Alex Jones’ ‘InfoWars.’ And he is a fan of FOX Noise. RACIST!
Look at the words Trump failed to use when he stepped before the cameras. He never mentioned the car that killed a young woman and injured 19 more. He refused to use the words ‘white nationalist’ or ‘white supremacist.’ By using the words “many, many sides,” he offered equal blame for the hatred and violence which resulted during the event. This is the same support he demonstrated during his vile rallies.
Trump has proven that he believes that old, white, wealthy men should control the future of this very diverse nation. He considers most of 320 million Americans inferior. Trump’s plan is to rule over us, not to serve all of our nation’s people.
Although it was the right thing to do, granting a permit to this white supremacist group to hold a rally based on the first amendment, law enforcement and the people of Charlottesville must have know that the true purpose of their march was to incite violence. This is what hate groups do.
Trump’s failure to condemn white supremacy resulted in comments by many Americans, including those politically involved. Hillary Clinton tweeted a response: “Now is the time for leaders to be strong in their words & deliberate in their actions.” But the most definitive came from Marco Rubio: “Very important for the nation to hear @potus describe events in #Charlottesville for what they are, a terror attack by #whitesupremacists.”
Domestic terrorism is a greater danger than any other to America.
