Every day Trump does something that goes against what the U.S. has stood for in the past.

In the last 2 days there have been 3 more incidents that require the President to do something about it and he probably won't. In all cases that came up today there is a clear path of action and it is highly unlikely that Trump will do the right thing:

1) Russia closed the Strait between Crimea and Russia to the Sea or Azov which prevents ships from taking supplies to Ukraine. This is an act of war by Putin against Ukraine and Trump should be doing something about it because we have an agreement with Ukraine to protect them. 20 years ago, Ukraine gave up their nuclear program at our request and with the understanding that we would protect them against Russia and Trump is doing very little about it.

2) It was stated by Trump yesterday that giving Manafort a pardon is "not off the table". This is a man that was not only a criminal but that worked against the interests of the United States for many years and Trump is considering giving him a pardon?

3) It was stated this morning that Veterans will not receive GI benefits they are due, due to a computer glitch. Thousands of veterans will be out on the street and homeless due to the backlog of the "Forever GI Bill" that was signed by Trump in 2017. The computer glitch is something that could be fixed but the government is unwilling to spend what is necessary to get it done and now many veterans will suffer because of it.

1.) Trump ARMED Ukraine, as opposed to Pres.Mommy pants, who refused to. He also killed a couple hundred Russians in Syria. He is weighing his response now, but we cab rest assured it won't involve handing Putin 20% more of our uranium reserves, or any of the other ANKLE GRABBING of the Obama Era.

What do you propose he do now?

2.) So? Manafort isn't an ANTI-AMERICAN TERRORIST who MURDERED AMERICANS, like one of the guys Obama pardoned, nor is he an INTERNATIONAL GUN RUNNER, or a DRUG LORD, , like some of the guys Clinton pardoned. Presidential pardons are VERY AMERICAN. Whether or not he pardons Manafort remains to be seen.

3.) The "computer glitch" is "Trump's Fault".


Do you even realize HOW RIDICULOUS your posts are?

I personally hope President von Clownstick survives until 2020. The moron is unintentionally HILARIOUS.

1) "Our relationship with Russia has NEVER been worse thanks to many years of U.S. foolishness and stupidity and now, the Rigged Witch Hunt!"-- @realDonaldTrump July 15,2018

2) Pardoning potential witnesses so they won't stay in a plea deal in a case against you is an abuse of power.

3)Arguably, this is not President Von Clowntick's fault.But then again, that never stopped the GOP from blaming Obama for all sorts of ridiculous things -- including Somalian pirates.
