It has been reported that he plans to separate 1,556 immigrant children at the border from their parents. It is more children than previous separations. The President is either uninformed or uncaring about that inhumane policy being carried out. Separating children from their parents brings back horrific polices carried out during World War II in Europe.

We are a nation of immigrants that includes Donald Trump’s family heritage of immigrating from Europe from Kallstadt, Germany, and now is a U.S. citizen President. His respect and support would greatly improve if Mr. Trump stopped even considering a policy of separating children and parents. It is extremely cruel, wrong and un-American. I have the freedom and the right to say stop the separation of families.

Trump’s Ineptitude

I want to say it’s funny but it’s kind of sad, how Trump goes against our friends on the world scene and is enamored by some (like Kim Jung Un, Putin, and now the Turks) who I don’t think represent our best interests.

The Kurds have been fighting side by side with U.S. troops in the Middle Eastern desert, losing 11,000 in the process, against the vicious ISIS machine and played a tremendous role in getting rid of their king pin Baghdadi and what does Trump do but abandon them to the will of the Turks, giving them no credit for the part they played. This President is a puppet who probably couldn’t think and chew gum at the same time who would love to stifle the media and the Democratic Party so he could carry out his real dream of a totalitarian “utopia.” Why doesn’t he just bring back the Alien and Sedition Act of John Adams and lock up those that oppose him (or better, tar and feather).

The fact that he thought Canada burnt down the White House way back when and that there was a 16-year President is just two examples of his inept educational experience and his perpetration of false information, lies and deceit. Maybe if just his “sense of humor” when he talks of having China dig up dirt on Biden a la the Ukraine. I mean, Joe Biden is so “corrupt” not to mention “weak-minded with a low I.Q.” - and don’t forget - “lazy.”

I can’t think of a dumber President in my lifetime; maybe Gerald Ford (who reminds me of Pense, by the way). But at least Ford didn’t use stupid phrases like fake news, witch hunt, or locker her up.

I hope this country comes to its senses and drives him out of office, if not by impeachment then by a landslide victory in the 2020 election. Personally, I can’t think of one good thing to say about the guy except good riddance. The End. (Hopefully.)
