Donald Trump sold America out to Vladimir Putin and the Russians, forcing the free democracies of Europe into a corner. It’s purported that Trump and his son-in-law “adviser” have financial dealings with the Russians.

He has embraced Saudi Arabia, home of the 9/11 murderers, yet he exempts citizens of that nation from his travel ban. Qatar, a nation whose funding of terrorists is so egregious Saudi Arabia cut diplomatic ties with it, is not included in the travel ban, either. In fact, Trump has extensive financial interests in all the exempted Muslim nations.


Trump has disrespected America’s European allies. He even insulted the Pope, for heaven’s sake. He refuses to guarantee NATO commitments. Weakening NATO is exactly what the Russians want — and Trump is there to oblige them.

He pulled the U.S. out of the only international accord that at least tries to slow the coming climate change disaster. He denounced the accord with lies so outrageous that even energy corporations such as Exxon/Mobil and Shell have bluntly said they won’t buy into his fantasy.

Is it reasonable to ask how Trump’s supporters believe facing the world alone is a good thing for us? In fact, can one of the ardent Trump faithful clearly explain what an America “made great again” would look like? What exactly is the goal? How does any of this dangerous nonsense make America “great” again? In fact, what is up with the “again”? I didn’t know America ever stopped being great.
