The nation is more important than who runs it
Well the mess in Washington continues.
Donald Trump’s tweets and other crazy, nonsense actions continue to cause controversy, resulting in nothing getting accomplished in Congress. He has ticked off all of our longtime allies to where their support of the United States is on shaky ground. With the emergence of North Korea as a military power and China as a powerful country we cannot afford to lose even one ally. We need all of our allies to help keep the world in check.
There are those who will say it’s the liberal news media that are out to bring Trump down. I disagree. The news media is reporting on what the president says and does. The White House staff has said his tweets are official White House statements, so they cannot be ignored. Some people, including Republican senators and congressmen and congresswomen, are expressing dismay at Donald Trump’s comments and actions.
I don’t know why anyone is surprised at this. He was like this on the campaign trail, and has been this way his entire adult public life. His comments and actions are disgraceful and embarrassing to say the least. Unfortunately, Donald Trump and the Republican Party are out to do one thing and one thing only: to undo everything President Obama accomplished. Not that I agree with everything Obama did, but he did accomplish some good things. Whether you liked or disliked President Obama the one thing he did do was represent the office of the president of the United States in a respectful and dignified manner.
It’s time for the Republicans to put aside protecting the party at all cost and do what is morally right for America — and that is speak out in a more forceful way against Donald Trump’s disgraceful comments and actions, and stop supporting him and making excuses for him. Our country is at stake here, and that is more important than which party sits in the White House.
