On Friday Donald Trump met with Angela Merkel, The Chancellor of Germany, one of our closest allies. And once again he made a fool of himself and caused our once great nation major embarrassment. He not only stood by his completely outrageous and demented lie about President Obama wiretapping Trump Tower, both during and after the campaign, he even tried to tie Germany to his insane conspiracy theory, stating that he and Merkel had being wiretapped in common. By looking at the photo above, from the Washington Post, one can almost read Merkel’s mind. “This man is completely insane and unfit to be a world leader” must be the phrase she is thinking of.
If this was not enough Trump went on to embarrass the country further by once again implicating, perhaps our closest ally, Britain in his paranoid conspiracy theory regarding Obama wiretapping him!
It is becoming apparent that world leaders view him as an unstable lunatic, who cannot be trusted to take a leadership role in the free world. He is a clear and present danger to the stability of Europe and Asia. In just a little over 2 months since his inauguration Trump has managed to destroy the credibility of the presidency and our democracy. In those few short weeks the United States has gone from a word leader to a rudderless rogue nation. We have become the laughing stock of the world! Trump has ceded his position of the leader of the free world to Angela Merkel, who is by far the more intelligent and more capable leader.
His behavior frightens the free world, but his followers love his bravado. They don’t have the intelligence and the world knowledge and awareness to realize that his actions are not only destroying our standing in the world, but our own survival as a democracy. Every great nation is destroyed, not from the outside, but from the inside, as what happened to the Roman Empire. This can be seen in Trump’s budget proposal, where he has attacked the poor, the elderly, the sick, the disabled and children, while adding to the wealth of the top 1%. When his disastrous foreign policy leads us into war, it won’t be his children or the children of his billionaire cronies who are sent off to die! The future of our country will be sacrificed so that the wealthy few may reap the greatest economic benefits. People like Ryan and McConnell and the rest of the GOP will be at the forefront welcoming Putin as our new leader!
