I don’t like writing about Trump. He’s not the problem. Although I’m criticizing him, just me talking about him strokes his ego and indirectly earns him a win. But, post Mueller Report, there is something so deeply alarming about his behavior that we as Americans MUST ask…
Trump is 1 dimensional, and that dimension is: Trump
I was not surprised the Mueller report revealed what it did. There is nothing hidden y’all. What do you think his taxes or his ties with Deutsche Bank are going to show? Investigating him will just tell us what we already know: he’s a narcissist, he says he’s wealthy when it will make people like him, and he says he’s poor when he can save on taxes. That’s it. There’s no further depth to this character.
We know the guy didn’t collude with Russia: he’s 1. Too inept to do so (even though willing) and 2. Why would Russia want to collude with him? They’re already getting everything they want out of him. The real question we need to be asking, that no one is asking, is this:
If he wasn’t colluding the whole time, why in the world would he defend Putin publicly? Why would he defend Russia who clearly attacked our election? Why would he say “I don’t see any reason why” Russia would have interfered with the election? It would have been politically beneficial for him to turn on Russia and denounce it and Putin in every way… but to this day he never has. Why?
Now immediately I will brush aside anyone who will say “he IS hard on Russia.” You know it was congress (and Obama) who levied heavy sanctions against Russia. Just ask yourself this question, has he attacked Russia/Putin more? Or has he attacked the Russia investigation more?
In every way he acts as if he is Russia’s ally. If he was colluding with Russia, then his actions would make sense. Now that we know that he wasn’t, it’s quite troubling and bothersome to think about: To this day this man still hasn’t condemned Russia meddling in our 2016 election. WHY?
Google “Trump Criticizes Russia” and behold the black hole of nothingness in the results.
The only conceivable answer
The only possible explanation for his behavior is his dream of opening a hotel in Moscow. It sounds absolutely crazy, but you try coming up with a better explanation!! “For at least three decades, Donald Trump has dreamed of a hotel stamped with his gilded name near Moscow’s Red Square” He even wrote about this desire in his book!
I’ve found when it comes to Trump, the reason is usually the most obvious one. I think he dreams of using his influence and connections, post-presidency, to open a hotel in Moscow. Criticizing Putin would be detrimental to that plan.
This should really concern any American, no matter where you are on the political spectrum: 1. Everyone agrees that Russia influenced our 2016 election (if you don’t believe that please remove the aluminium foil from your head and go to a hospital). 2. Russia tried to sway the election toward Trump and against Hillary. 3. Trump to this day has not denounced Russia/Putin and 4. He stands to gain a lot of wealth by building a hotel there!
He’s willing to put his own business interests over the sanctity of US elections… in other words, to Trump, making another billion by putting up a hotel in Red Square is more important than someone attacking our democracy. As an American I find this unacceptable… and every American should feel the same.
If you are a true Trump supporter this will likely not sway you; I can’t reason with someone impervious to facts. But if you are with me on this reasoning, I am asking you to publicly state your condemnation that Trump to this day has not criticized Russia. The person who claims to be head of the United States needs to condemn any foreign entity attacking our elections. Anyone who doesn’t do that is unpatriotic. Plain and simple.
Any leader who puts his own business interests over serving his people is not a leader, certainly not my leader.
