…And with these words TRUMP makes America great again…???

…Are you kidding me…!!!

The moment called for Trump to stand up for America. He chose to bow.

When the history of Donald Trump’s presidency is ultimately written, July 16, 2018, will have a special entry. On a day when the setting called for a show of strength and resolve from an American president, Trump instead offered deference, defensiveness, equivocation and weakness.

If anyone can recall a performance by a U.S. president that rivaled the one seen around the world Monday, let them come forward. In the meantime, Trump’s extraordinary joint news conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin will stand on its own, for sheer shock value and for the reality of an opportunity lost.

Here was a president turning his back on the collective work of U.S. intelligence agencies, looking the other way at indictments returned last week by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III against 12 Russian military intelligence officers who sought to undermine American democracy during the 2016 election, and falling back as he so often has on attacks against Hillary Clinton, criticism of Democrats and boasts about the size of his electoral college victory.

In reality, he did more than turn his back on the evidence of Russian attacks on the U.S. electoral process. He all but rejected it. In an attempt to say both sides have their views of what happened during the last presidential election, he proffered that his own view is that he can’t bring himself to accept that the Russians did it. “I don’t see any reason why [Russia would interfere],” he said.

That investigation includes the question of whether there was any collusion with Russians by officials associated with the Trump campaign. The president has said repeatedly, as he did Monday, that there was no collusion. Perhaps Mueller and his team will reach the same conclusion, if they are allowed to carry on through the end.

But Trump’s conflation of the issue of collusion with the question of Russian attacks on the U.S. democratic process continues to undermine the entire investigation, turning what should be a nonpartisan examination of what happened and how the country can be protected from any repeat efforts into a partisan brawl. On Monday, Trump called the investigation “a disaster” for the United States.

All of which raises the obvious question: If the president’s comments in Helsinki reflect his true thinking, if he sees the United States as being as responsible for poor relations with Russia as the Russians are, if he is not willing to stand behind the intelligence agencies sworn to protect this country, what exactly does “America First” really mean?

 

‘Treasonous’ And ‘Disgraceful’: Critics Slam Trump’s Performance At Putin Summit

President Donald Trump’s performance during a press conference after a summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki on Monday left critics of all stripes howling.

Trump refused to blame Putin for Moscow’s interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election and told reporters that “both countries” were responsible for the poor state of their relations.

“I think we’ve all been foolish. I think we’re all to blame,” Trump said.

He reiterated that there was no collusion between his presidential campaign and Russia, slammed special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of Russian interference in the election as a “disaster” and shared conspiracy theories about why it’s important for the FBI to take the Democratic National Committee’s computer server.

Putin agreed with Trump on many points, and Trump’s comments drew fierce criticism from Republicans and Democrats alike.

Trump isn’t bothering to disguise his racism, declares himself world president of white people

 

Mark Sumner  ……Daily Kos Staff………2018/07/13 · 08:38

Most of the attention directed at Donald Trump’s hateful interview with British tabloid The Sun has been directed at how he back-stabbed UK Prime Minister Theresa May even as the two were chatting together in London. But there’s a portion of the interview that’s even more frightening than Trump’s eagerness to disrupt an allied government and weaken alliances going back decades.

Trump: I think what has happened to Europe is a shame. Allowing the immigration to take place in Europe is a shame. I think it changed the fabric of Europe and, unless you act very quickly, it’s never going to be what it was and I don’t mean that in a positive way.

So I think allowing millions and millions of people to come into Europe is very, very sad. I think you are losing your culture. Look around. You go through certain areas that didn’t exist ten or 15 years ago.

What’s not in Trump’s statement about immigration is important: The word “illegal.” Trump isn’t bemoaning the idea of of illegal immigrants swarming across some European border. He’s attacking immigrants, pure and simple. Trump’s words here aren’t just shocking, they’re a direct lift from neo-Nazi white supremacist propaganda that paints migrants as “invaders” and white culture as under attack. The only thing that separates Donald Trump’s policies from an open declaration of white supremacy, is using the word “Europe” rather than “white.” And that is a very, very thin reed.

Trump’s statements to The Sun only build on the rhetoric he used in describing immigration within the United States. As NBC News reported last month, Trump on multiple occasions used the word “infest” in describing immigrants coming into the United States. If it seems very, very similar to these warnings from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, that’s because it is.

In order to make Jewish persecution publicly palatable, Nazi propagandists branded Jews as a biological threat to Germany. Government-sponsored racist propaganda was widely distributed denouncing Jews as “alien,” and “parasitic,” and responsible for Germany’s cultural, political, and economic “degeneration.”

Trump’s painting of immigrants as an “infestation” that is causing the loss of European culture and driving up crime isn’t even an echo. It’s just a repeat. A do-over of the worst moment in human history.

In the same interview, Trump insists that London Mayor Sadiq Khan is responsible for “spiraling crime” and terrorism because he allows too much immigration into London. Trump doesn’t explain how a mayor who has nothing to do with immigration is allowing too much immigration. He just knows that Khan is Muslim, and therefore suspect.
