We need a president that demonstrates some level of common decency.
A president that supports our country, not his personal agenda.
For over two years, Trump has attacked, threatened, and publicly advocated violence against those who oppose him. This behavior by the supposed leader of our country has led to the attempted bombing/murder of his opponents. Prior to that, Trump and his followers attacked and threatened President Obama and his family on an ongoing basis.
I am adamantly opposed to the use of violence, regardless of who is the instigator. However, I also understand that sometimes even the meek can allow a bully to continue his bullying for only so long before standing up against him.
The breakdown in civility that began with Trump during the 2016 campaign has accelerated in recent days and weeks. (Actually it begun much earlier with Trump's continuous attacks on Obama.)
Most troubling is Trump accusing the news media as being the 'enemy of the people.' Attacking the media is attacking democracy itself. (Would Trump have accused Edward R. Murrow and Walter Cronkite as being 'enemy of the people?') Trump accusing the news media as being the 'enemy of the people’ has brought out the worse in some, motivating individuals to take direct action against the news media -- the Capital Gazette shooting where gunman, Jarrod Ramos, shot seven people and a California man making threats to the Boston Globe, calling the paper 'enemy of the people.'
Then some individual (that idealized Trump) started making pipe bombs and sending them to individuals that Trump has called out because they spoke out against his policies.
Next, another individuals that idealized Trump, went on a shooting spree at the synagogue in Pittsburg, killing 11 individuals.
Trump is as guilty of these crimes as the individuals that committed the crimes. But he refuses to take any responsibility. Too many believe and / or act on what Trump says. That creates a very dangerous situation when it creates violence.
The culture that we are creating and the interactions we have with our fellow citizens each day are influenced by those who we elect to represent us. . Donald Trump has brought out the worst in this country.
Trump is the main instigator of the hate fueled inflammatory rhetoric, and violence, we are seeing today.
Trump's inflammatory rhetoric, name calling and harassment needs to stop.
It is time you stop patronizing Trump and support our country. Open the government.
