There has never been a more brazen, opportunistic, undisciplined, and ignorant candidate in American politics than Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.
On Sunday following a deadly mass shooting in Baton Rouge, Louisiana which killed three police officers and left one officer in critical condition, President Obama once again condemned violence against police officers and called for Americans to seek unity during this tragic time. The president said:
I know we’re about to enter a couple of weeks of political conventions where our political rhetoric tends to be more overheated than usual. And that is why it is so important that everyone regardless of race, or political party, or profession, regardless of what organizations you are a part of, everyone right now focus on words and actions that unite this country rather than divide it further. We don’t need inflammatory rhetoric. We don’t need careless accusations thrown around to score political points, or advance an agenda. We need to temper our words and open our hearts. All of us.
Trump believes his strategy of anger and division will pave his way into occupying 1600 Pensylvania Avenue by next year. Trump simply can’t afford to tone his rhetoric down, because if he did, he would instantly become irrelevant.
It’s little wonder why so many hate groups like the Ku Klux Klan, biker gangs, and neo-nazis support Trump’s candidacy. They see him as a way to push their dark agenda, and he sees them in the same light.
This election isn’t about the choice between two politicians anymore; it’s really about the survival of America.
Trump is a narcissistic megalomaniac determined to sit in the Oval Office even if it means watching the nation burn from his window.
