"These aren't people, these are animals"....This isn't a president, this is a deranged, unstable narcissist
On 5/16/18, during a round-table discussion with state and local officials from California on immigration and sanctuary laws, Trump went on one of his usual rants and said, “You wouldn’t believe how bad these people are. These aren’t people, these are animals, and we’re taking them out of the country at a level and at a rate that’s never happened before.”
Animals? How presidential, Donnie. Just look at the faces of those in the room with Trump, sheepishly looking away in disbelief. Trump is an embarrassment not only to the office of president, but most certainly to the citizens of the United States of America.
Trump Insults War Heroes and Immigrants
On 11/27/17, Trump made insulting and derogatory comments at the White House event honoring Native American “code talkers” who directly helped the United States win World War II. Then, on 1/11/18, during a White House meeting with congressional lawmakers on immigration, Trump asked why the United States would accept immigrants from “shithole countries” in Africa and the Caribbean, rather than people from places like Norway. This is a far cry from the immortal words spoken by Nobel Peace Prize recipient Martin Luther King, Jr. on Aug. 28, 1963 when he spoke of living in a nation where people “will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.” So, Trump further proved that the one thing lower than low class is a racist president having absolutely no class whatsoever! Trump denied being a racist and then, as is the predictable pattern of narcissists, instead of taking personal ownership of his comments, he deflected and projected by once again blaming the media for distorting his meaning, in spite of other senior Democratic (Dick Durbin, IL) and Republican (Lindsey Graham, SC) Senate leaders in the room stating they heard him make these derogatory comments. Interestingly, Lindsey Graham, a one-time foe who then turned friend of Trump’s, said, “It’s not the content of your character that matters. It’s whether or not you show him respect and like him.” Oh, really? Another Senator who’s normalized Trump’s deviant behavior, drank the Kool-Aid and sold himself out in order to buy Trump’s favor.
A number of attendees at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, planned to walk out of Trump’s speech on Friday, January 26th, to protest his remarks about African countries. Trump is not only alienating American citizens, but also our international allies. Congratulations again, poorly educated Trump supporters — you blindly and naively voted for a racist bully who is chronologically 71 years old with the mental capacity and stability of a 4-year-old! Not my president!
Trump makes derogatory comments about immigrants, but then hires only ONE American citizen
Ironically, on 2/14/18, a Vox analysis of hiring records for seasonal workers at three Trump properties in New York and Florida revealed that only one out of 144 jobs went to a US worker from 2016 to the end of 2017. Foreign guest workers with H-2B visas got the rest. Trump’s businesses don’t seem too concerned about “America First.”
Rescinding Trump’s Honorary Degree
In February of 2018, faculty members at Lehigh University voted overwhelmingly (80%) in favor of rescinding Trump’s honorary degree that they presented to him in 1988. The motion they drafted said the faculty members “don’t want Lehigh to be identified with the kind of sexist, racist, and Islamophobic utterances” Trump has made. The faculty motion was preceded by two petitions, including an online one that garnered more than 30,000 signatures. Lehigh’s current values as a university stand against everything Trump represents.
