Trump's: #1 Pot Stirrer

On April 13th, during a televised briefing, President Trump claimed he had "absolute authority" to repopen states' economies. He reinforced this claim in quite a number of tweets. On April 16th, after a brief lesson by his advisors on the 10th Ammendment in the U.S. Constitution, Trump backpedaled by acknowledging it was the Nation's governors who would decide when they can begin reopening businesses, restaurants, and other elements of daily life. Did he leave it at that? On April 17th, Trump tweeted, "LIBERATE MINNESOTA." "LIBERATE MICHIGAN." "LIBERATE VIRGINIA." (With an added "Save your great 2nd Ammendment. It is under siege!" Which some extremeists see as Trump advocating a call to arms.) Note, these are all states that have Democatic governors. No tweets about liberating Washington DC, Massachusettes, or Ohio - states that have issued the same stay-at-home orders, but have Republican governors. The next day, he goes on TV to defend the protestors. Why? He doesn't care about lives, he only cares about getting the economy back up so he can be reelected. No big deal that people will die needlessly because of his insatiable hunger for power.  At a time when we desperatly need a leader to urge calmness, patience, and cooperation, we get Trump: encouraging chaos, disention, irresponsibility, and violence. Folks, it is time to liberate this country from Trump.

Yep! You certainly have described trump. We are stuck with him for awhile longer, thanks to the Senate repubs "no

trial, trial"

Now, We continually need to figure out how to counteract trump, and to continue to probe at his weaknesses... and those he has a bunch of.

This is reflected in his daily televised 'briefings' (i.e.daily campaign speeches).

With... Save your great 2nd Ammendment.  His mentors I fear suffer multiple whiplash injuries from his abuses of reality.  He know how the 2nd works.

he goes on TV to defend the protestors.

No sacrifice too great to not produce a second season.  The show is on the road.  (with arms?!?).    Plus, the BigBonus, as stated, he likes to mix things up, it's exciting for him to engage - that way.  He Who Walks on The Wild Side.

I don't think we should ignore the peril to the life of our country of how very, very PERSONAL dt's life long - dysfunctional relationship with “being under siege” controls his moments.

You have a very eloquent way of letting people know how you feel about Trump's actions!
