Congress must keep Trump in check
Japanese immigrants purely on the basis of their race? Every penny spent to defend our rights under the Constitution is worth it.
Wilfredo Tungol Pearl City During President Donald Trump’s first 232 days in office, he made 1,145 false or misleading statements, averaging 4.9 daily, according to The Washington Post. Other fact-checking agencies independently confirm his habit.
Is he unable to distinguish between fact and fiction, or is he just trying to manufacture his own reality, generate media attention, bias public discourse and energize his base? How can he be trusted with the nuclear button, dealing with North Korea and Iran, and any other serious matter? Recalling his words at the U.N. about North Korea, how can he threaten to annihilate 25 million human beings? Is that appropriate in the U.N.? Is that presidential, Christian, or sane? America and the rest of the world may well be headed toward an unprecedented catastrophe. Only Congress may be able to prevent it, but do enough representatives have any backbone? Are enough truly patriotic and morally responsible?
