It is no secret that outgoing Secretary of Defense, James Mattis, and your illegitimate president, Donald Trump, had very different opinions about national security. Who do you believe was right; a general with decades of experience, or a man who has failed at everything he attempted in his pitiful life? His business “success” and his illegitimate presidency are the result of assistance from outside sources; the Saudi Arabia royal family, and Vladimir Putin.
Mattis tendered a long resignation letter to his former boss, and the orange man was not pleased. The document detailed many of the differences between an intelligent and experienced public servant and Donald Trump.
At its core is a fact which describes Trump’s biggest mistake and the greatest danger to our nation’s future. In his first 23 months in office Trump has alienated our closest allies, threatened to ‘pull-out’ of NATO, and aligned himself with our enemies. The following paragraph details Mattis’ belief that was shared by 44 presidents prior to the mistake made by voters in November of 2016.
“Similarly, I believe we must be resolute and unambiguous in our approach to those countries whose strategic interests are increasingly in tension with ours. It is clear that China and Russia, for example, want to shape a world consistent with their authoritarian model—gaining veto authority over other nations’ economic, diplomatic, and security decisions—to promote their own interests at the expense of their neighbors, America and our allies. That is why we must use all the tools of American power to provide for the common defense.”
Trump has refused to consider the educated thoughts of his advisers. His decisions are always dangerous and destructive because he makes them hastily and unilaterally.
One fact alone disqualifies Trump to be our nation’s leader. Refusing to read the “President’s Daily Briefing” makes him ignorant and uninformed. Not only is Trump completely uninformed about national and world events, he chooses to remain that way. One-hundred percent of everything he knows comes from watching FOX Noise. He is your “Idiot-in-Chief.”
