The President has no desire and no capacity to lead the World...Donald Trump has pressed fast-forward of the decline of America as global leader.


Quote:
...we all need to give up on any hope that the speeches written for Trump and delivered by the man himself are any reflection of his true thoughts.

“It’s the unscripted Trump that’s real: a man who barks out bile in 140 characters, who wastes his precious days as President at war with the West’s institutions like the judiciary, independent government agencies, and the free press.”


Ouch. cry

I am now convinced thar Trump is working harder to further Russian interests than American. Yes, he is beyond ignorant of international affairs. Yes, he is disinterested in hard work or gaining knowledge. But that cannot excuse his anti- American behavior at the G20. He gave secrets to Lavrov in his last meeting, and gave Putin everything he wanted in this one - not taking any witnesses with him to watch it happen. He is, most assuredly, Putin's puppet.

Didn't we say the very same thing about W Bush? This deja vu stuff is getting old. Hmm

I've written this over a hundred times: The GOP and Tea Party/Freedumb Caucus want to degrade and destroy our government and society just like ISIS and al Queda. It's not The Dems who go around saying:

The fact that Steve Bannon, an admitted anti-goverment Alt-Righter works for Trump as an advisor, only confirms my thinking.

Hmm

Imagine the conservative reaction if Barack Obama had told Malia to sit in his stead at the G7 meetings.

I just read Mr Trump's Warsaw speech and if I didn't know he delivered it, I could have made some guesses someone like A Hitler may have said something similar.

Buried in the history lesson were the full born ideas of nationalism and the scapegoat upon whom to focus. No longer is it the Jews. Now Western Civilization can focus on Islam.

This is a scary administration. I now know how some Germans must have felt when Hitler began his rise to power.

Once again we interpret differently.
Trump delivered a very good speech in Warsaw and it was nothing like a Hitler speech. It was not inflammatory against islam, but it was against jihadi-islam. There is an important difference.

Obviously you do not possess the will to defend our western culture that President Trump urges us to muster.

It was an Alt-Right white nationalist speech. Even Sarah Palin caught the "14 Words" euphemism of Trump's Poland speech:

The purpose of what Trump is doing is to isolate the United States as an island unto itself and not engage in world activities.

Maybe you'll be OK, once you start quoting correctly.

What are the 14 words you are referring to? Did they stun in a good way or a bad way?
I believe Trump is trying get not only America, but the World onto new tracks. I'm not judging for now, I'll wait and see.
