Trump’s Tweets

Additionally, by the way, Trump has slashed the USAID budget. So that’s pretty much done. That agency and others have said they’d have to cut their operations more than thirty percent.

That’s going to hurt even more ways in which we partner with other countries. We’ve already seen countries question their loyalty to partnerships with us because of Trump’s refusal to sign on to the Paris Accord, and more will come from that that we haven’t yet seen.

Domestically, he’s ensuring that Americans don’t trust the government. You can’t have partnerships with local communities if they don’t trust you. You can’t get them to galvanize around an issue if they hate you. In short, you can’t get anything done if you live on an island all by yourself and nobody wants to talk to you.

On the upside, he will have a very hard time getting reelected. In 2018, if we get enough Democrats in both houses, which is going to be quite difficult to do, then we can block him, even override his vetoes, and even discuss whether or not to bring a vote to the floor to discuss whether we should move forward with impeachment.

To clear, impeachment will take time, and as I discussed in my piece on Obstruction of Justice, it probably won’t happen, but I think it’s important that Democrats voice our opinions in a House debate on whether to impeach or not. This will be a step in the right direction even if we don’t get far enough. Moreover, I think we should try to beat him instead of Pence in 2020, but it’ll help so many people feel good about their government again if there’s even talk of impeachment.

So what are we going to do about all this? How can WE help? There’s a couple long-term plans and several short-term plans.

  1. The way I see it, and my opinion may not be the most popular one here, but I think we, not just the American citizens, but the whole world is the cause of this man. It may seem irrelevant but this is what capitalism looks like.

    1. Thank you. Don’t worry if your comment is unpopular.

      Many people are upset about the economy, but Trump can’t incentivize corporations if no one has enough money to buy their products.

      I’m sure you have more to say about the effects of capitalism, and I’m happy to hear from you.

  2. You would think that once you became president you’d stop being a Twitter Troll. I’ve never heard of a president telling us information by Twitter.

  3. i have read your piece with interest. i keep track of Tump Tweets. There are always eccentric people all around this globe. God seems or better Americans have trusted in him to make people of America strong happy etc but here is a President wasting that opportunity in submissing people to his will. Let us hope all will be great for everyone.
    however your piece is very good.
    kindly read my blogs especially on Trump and others.

    1. Thank you. There are definitely some crazy people out there. I congratulated those who were happy when he won, but sadly, even they’re disappointed now.

      He never planned on doing anything for this country. He just wanted to win. I just hope people can find a way to stay strong until 2020.

      I hope you continue to enjoy my blog. I actually added Trump’s Twitter feed to the menu. Maybe you’ll like that, too. I’m glad you’re keeping a close eye on his behavior.

    2. glad to get in touch with me . kindly read my book published in MAY2017. STRAIGHT FROM THE HEART BY BRIJ KAUL. Available on Amazon.com in kindle edition as well .very cheaply priced.

    3. I don’t think anybody should be president of the USA. My vote went against the War Machine Establishment in hopes that somehow PEACE could be salvaged from the Goebbels propoganda machine repudiation. Trump’s victory with the ELECTORATE is a rebuke against this constant warmaking of the past administrations, beginning from before Reagan.

      The Russia meme is generated by deep, entrenched interests who think they have to maintain this war machine, with the excuse (for our consumption) that it is for our own protection. Who are they kidding?

      The CIA itself has repeatedly discovered the principle of “blowback”. You meddle with affairs that don’t pertain to you, look at what you get. Bush the First and the Second poked a hornets’ nest sending troops to the land of Mecca, the hills of Afghanistan, and to the Shiite majority territories of Iraq.

      Ron Paul had –and still has– the best foreign policy suggestions of all. The Russia drumbeat, based on ZERO real evidence, supported by fake spin and the Military-Industrial-Government-Media-DeepState-Academia-Religion complex, has pushed Trump into an isolated corner.

      These evildoers have managed to find a flattering voice in Trump’s ear to be able to push out his best allies in the efforts for peace that he has been able to try, like trashing the support that Bush began and Obama continued for the jihadists in Syria who are working with ISIS, beheading any non-Muslim who does not submit to their tyranny.

      MAKE PEACE NOT WAR!

    4. Thank you. We’re all a bit frustrated these days. Keep speaking out. I will say there’s bipartisan support for evidence of Putin’s involvement in hacking of multiple elections in the US and Europe.

      I certainly understand your anti-war sentiment. I wish our enemies were more anti-war.

  4. This is brilliantly written. The way it’s written is sometimes things I’m screaming in my head while watching the news but never sure how to articulate my raw emotions. Thank you for this piece. I started with a poem while he was just campaigning that I found as a way to express how I’m feeling. This article has inspired me to try some more ways to voice my anger, frustration, and shock. Always when I think that things cannot get worse they do, and I believe the tweets are a big example of that. Again, really great piece!

    1. Thank you, Maria. I’m often screaming at a number of mobile devices when Trump talks/tweets about almost anything.

      That’s actually why I wanted to write this blog. I want to keep track of everything that happens so I can look back and make sure I haven’t accepted anything as normal. I also want a good reference in 2020.

      However you vent, do what feels right. We’re all pretty shocked right now.

      I’m glad you enjoy my blog. If you can add to any of my posts, I’d be happy to hear from you!

  5. Thank you for following my blog. Unfortunately I live in Australia and can’t do much about trump. However, it is always good to hear about how he is running the country (into the ground). Like everyone else, I have no idea what is going on in his head, but as someone that knew a trump as president was always going to be a bad thing, I have the same feeling that trump wants to get closer to Putin and Russia. Perhaps trump wants to make as much money as Putin, and if than means every other American suffering, trump is okay with that.

    1. Thank you David. Your voice is as loud as mine. Our allies indirectly vote for our government by telling the American people what they would do in response to our policies. I will continue writing about the effects of Trump’s policies. I hope for something good someday, but running us into the ground seems be a common theme. Your comparison of Trump to Putin is spot on. They just don’t care about their own people.

    1. Thank you, Suzanne. I always try to give advice on what people can do in response to what Trump says and does. Regarding his tweets, all it takes to make your voice heard is tweeting back at him.

      Additionally, we’ve gotten the WH to say that Trump’s tweets are official statements and there’s been talk of limiting what he can tweet.

      Thanks for visiting my blog. I hope you enjoy it, and if you have additional information about any of the subjects I write about, I’d love to hear from you.

    1. Sure is. It’s also the time to show what we do when our leaders won’t do what we ask. We can show our leadership skills, and we can show that, by surviving this, we’re actually so strong that we can even get through the Trump administration. If we can handle whatever he throws at us, I don’t think it can get any worse. But yes, I totally understand what you’re saying. I heard Hillary on NPR speaking at Georgetown University a couple hours ago, and no one in the car was allowed to talk because we all just wanted to listen to her voice. Haha.
