Is Trump Still the President of All Americans?

Donald Trump - Still president of all Americans?

The headlines are disturbing to say the least.

Over the weekend the president went on his usual Twitter rant and attacked General Motors for closing Ohio plant while demanding that GM reopen the plant. He slammed late Arizona senator and war hero John McCain.

Meanwhile, Trump couldn’t get himself to condemn the white supremacist who murdered innocent worshippers in Christchurch, New Zealand.

I can’t recall a time when a president made their feelings, bigotry and racism so obvious. So the question is – is Trump still the president of United States, or just the president of racist, bigoted America?

Does Trump still consider himself the leader of the free world and of the WHOLE United States or just certain Americans?

The question must be asked, and answered – Is Donald Trump still the President of United States?

The answer is Yes and No. On paper, Trump is the president. In reality, Trump is not. He does not consider himself the president of every American, only the Fox News watching, white-skinned racist, bigoted Americans.

Let me make one thing clear. I do not consider all White Americans racist. Some of the best friends I have a Whites and some of my most fun experiences have been around, and with them.

But watching Trump since assuming the presidency, it is obvious that he either does not understand the office he occupies or his at his core, he is just so bigoted, he can’t help himself.

Just this past Friday, Trump was asked if he thought the world, particularly America, has a white nationalist problem.

“I don’t think anybody can say the President is anti-Muslim,” Mulvaney said on CBS’ Face the Nation, when asked if Trump hates Muslims. On Fox News, he added that “the President is not a white supremacist. I’m not sure how many times we have to say that.”

“I don’t really. I think it’s a small group of people that have very, very serious problems, I guess,” Trump said in the Oval Office only minutes after a crazed, racist gunman murdered 50 people in New Zealand whose only crime was trying to worship their God.

“If you look at what happened in New Zealand, perhaps that’s the case,” Trump said. “I don’t know enough about it yet. They’re just learning about the person and the people involved.”

Asked if he had seen the killer’s manifesto, Trump said he had not adding “I did not see it. I did not see it, but I think it’s a horrible event, it’s a horrible thing,” he said.

As if to placate those Americans who felt mystified by his response to the terror attack, Trump said he was obviously disturbed. He again refused to condemn white nationalists.

“We’re obviously greatly disturbed on what seems to be a terror attack, this hate crime in New Zealand. We’ve been in touch with our embassy overnight, we’re still getting details, but the State Department and others are following up on it,” he told reporters Friday morning.

Trump’s refusal to vehemently condemn white nationalism put his administration on the defensive forcing his acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney to say over the weekend that the president is not a white nationalist.

“I don’t think anybody can say the President is anti-Muslim,” Mulvaney said on CBS’ Face the Nation, when asked if Trump hates Muslims. On Fox News, he added that “the President is not a white supremacist. I’m not sure how many times we have to say that.”

We are talking about the president of United States.

Trump condemned Senator John McCain who died of brain cancer last year for passing on the Steel dossier to the FBI, prompting McCain’s erstwhile friend and now spineless Trump apologist and worshipper, Sen. Lindsay Graham of South Carolina, a man that used to stand on principle, to fire back.

“As to @SenJohnMcCain and his devotion to his country: He stepped forward to risk his life for his country, served honorably under difficult circumstances, and was one of the most consequential senators in the history of the body … Nothing about his service will ever be changed or diminished,” Graham wrote on Twitter.

And Sen. McCain’s daughter Meghan McCain responded that Trump seems fixated on her father’s legacy.

“No one will ever love you the way they loved my father,” Meghan McCain tweeted Saturday. “I wish I had been given more Saturday’s with him. Maybe spend yours with your family instead of on twitter obsessing over mine?”

Perhaps it is not surprising that the only people Trump seems to be in love with are the racists and bigots, like Ohio congressman Steve King who just this morning was imagining a war between the red and blue states on Twitter.

Someone needs to remind congressman KIng what happened the last time Americans were at war with each other. It is called the war of the sates or civil war. Perhaps, the disgraced congressman should look into civic lessons every once in a while.

For Trump, he may be beyond redemption and the only solution could be 2020.

Let’s hope we as Americans do not fail this test.
