What has he got to do with the assassination?

 

Well let's see - it's been 2 weeks and he hasn't even called his best buds the Saudi's to at least hear their side of the story

Do you see the President of the US as Judge and Jury of the World?

 

Remember Trump is the first President in History to make his first Official Trip to a Foreign Country - Saudi Arabia

International diplomacy.

 

Why was that - was there some pressing US Foreign Policy Issue?

You'll have to ask him.

 

How about some pressing National Security issue?

You'll have to ask him.

 

No - but shortly after Trumps visit - The Saudi Prince - MBS - rounded up over 100 of his Family members - imprisoned them & stole billions from them all

Internal politics.

 

Then he kidnaps the Prime Minister of Lebanon

....and then the sputtering began......

 

Then he interferes with 2 sovereign nations Quatar & the UAE

 

Then he assassinated a US Permanent Resident

 

Nothing like these things has ever happened by Saudi Arabia before - we never hear anything about any kind of any kind of Sword Rattling by the Saudis - oil oil oil and under Obama we started learning about all the Terrorist Sponsoring and Terrorist Schools run by the Saudis and Obama took them off his Favorite Nations status because of it

 

Now under Trump their building up their Military - developing Nuclear & running around the World and assassinating people like Putin - Trumps other buddy

......and finally ended,

A perfect example of finding ways to say, "Bad Trump, Bad Trump".


It's hard to SEE anything when you refuse to open your EYES

 

WHATABOUTISM is not in the US Constitution

What does that mean?

 

You Run For President With The Understanding if you get Elected - you are the President of All the American People & you are the President of all the problems that come with the Job regardless of when they began or who was responsible previously

Yes, you do and you do your best to fulfill your campaign promises.

 

For Example - Trump has No Problem blaming previous Presidents for everything from Trade to North Korean Nukes

When things are amiss and have been amiss for many years such as your example and you come into office and people start acting like the the problems started the day you were inaugurated, a rational person refuses to accept that, he points out their error (you call that blaming someone else - I call it speaking the truth).

 

He doesn't just get to place Blame - his Responsibility as President is to Fix Everything and if he doesn't Fix Everything then when he's done - everything that's broken is his fault

And he is. The Korean War has been unresolved for over a half century. he has not resolved it yet so, "Bad Trump, bad Trump". Right?? I love your thinking - "Fix Everything" (caps and all) - even if they have been broken for decades or even a half century.

Including Assasinated Permanent Residents of the USA who had the exact same US Immigration Status as Melania Trumps Parents

What has he to do with the assassination?

 

I got a feeling that you are trying to give the Qs a laugh so they will consider your garbage cans not worth tipping.

This Post is a Riot - here are few reasons why

 

Trump DC Hotel.png

 

 

First, how would anyone know how when or where Trump made any of his money or if he even has any.............................he refuses to be transparent with the American People like every other Modern Day President - in fact he won't even release his tax returns

 

Second, Also unlike every other Modern Day President he refuses to divest himself from all his income generating entities

 

Third, His Son in Law who works in the Whitehouse - is implicated in numerous Quid Pro Quo deals with not only the Saudi's but the Israeli's The Quatari's The UAE - Private Banks & Businesses

 

Lastly - Trump is getting Income Daily as President from 

 

1. This August, for example, the general manager of the Trump International Hotel in Manhattan was pleased to announce that after two straight years of decline, revenue grew 13 percent in the first quarter of 2018.

 

Why? Well, according to a letter he wrote that was obtained by the Post, “a last-minute visit to New York by the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia” played a key role.

 

2. Trump himself filed a disclosure report that showed

 

according to his financial disclosure report, earned $40 million last year from his company’s hotel in Washington, D.C., USA Today reports. 

 

Trump earned $40.7 million in the 2017 calendar year. He earned $19.6 million from January 2016 to mid-April 2017, according to a previous financial report. 

 

More than $350,000 in campaign funds contributed to the hotel’s revenue, 60 percent coming from events hosted by the Republican National Committee, according to an analysis by USA Today.

 

The Trump International Hotel in D.C. opened in October 2016, less than one mile from the White House, and has become a legal headache for the president as a number of critics have said earnings from the hotel violate the emoluments cause in the Constitution.

 

3. In a blow to President Trump, a federal judge says a lawsuit that alleges Trump's business interests violate the Constitution can proceed.

 

Federal District Judge Peter Messitte denied the Department of Justice's request to dismiss a case brought by the attorneys general of Maryland and the District of Columbia.

 

The Emoluments Clause bars any president from personally profiting from his dealings with foreign governments — or even U.S. state governments.

 

 

It's the first ruling in federal court to define "emolument," which goes undefined in the U.S. Constitution's two emoluments clauses.

 If what you allege is true, I can't imagine what is taking Mueller so long. You'd think he'd have enough on the President and his family without wasting time on porn stars, bunnies, NYC taxi medallions, contracting with Turkey and the rest.

It is hard to see what President Trump has to do with the Iraq war (approved by the Dems) and the Afghanistan war (the "good war" according to Obama) and our long standing relationship with Saudi Arabia.

I hope Americans understand this Saudi Leader MBS is a Dictator - Trump makes a big deal about him allowing Woman to Drive - that's some big accomplishment in 2018!

 

This is the same Dictator who arrested the Prime Minister of Lebanon & through him in jail

 

Turkey is a NATO Country - the USA is contractually obligated to help Turkey find out what happened here

 

The Reporter Kashoggi was a US Resident - Americans are not going to accept this - no matter how much money Trump might lose

 

 


NATO means nothing to trump and neither do our allies mean anything to him. Real Americans won't accept this but trump supporters will.
