    There is nothing inherently wrong with golfing, watching television and tweeting. But if that’s pretty much all that a president does when the nation is engulfed in crises, he is not a president.


    Trump’s tweets are no substitute for governing. They are mostly about getting even.


    When he’s not fomenting violence against black protesters, he’s accusing a media personality of committing murder, retweeting slurs about a black female politician’s weight and the House speaker’s looks, conjuring up conspiracies against himself supposedly organized by Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, and encouraging his followers to “liberate” their states from lockdown restrictions.


    He tweets bogus threats that he has no power to carry out – withholding funds from states that expand absentee voting, “overruling” governors who don’t allow places of worship to reopen “right away”, and punishing Twitter for factchecking him.


    And he lies incessantly.

    This is what happens when a conman and shyster is elected. Calling people names and blaming everyone else whilst whining like a bish about being the victim doesn't fix things.

    Trump will speak to the nation tomorrow. From the Charletesville '"there were good peope on both sides" comments, we can be sure he will screw this up as well.

    Undoubtedly. He has made a point of exploiting divisions for his own benefit and that won't change now.

    I'm hoping he calls for the army to start shooting looters, and they ignore him.

    Can't you please change the POTUS immediately before the country go completely down?

    And replace him with the most favorable man (you know who) who can solve all the shitty problems with racism and the virus as well? (not to mention the unemployment 40M)...

    Baldy orange cunto has another tantrum and further alienates global leaders. He is so out of his depth.

    US President Donald Trump said on Saturday he would postpone a Group of Seven summit he had hoped to hold next month until September or later and expand the list of invitees to include Australia, Russia, South Korea and India.
    Speaking to reporters on Air Force One during his return to Washington from Cape Canaveral in Florida, Trump said the G7, which groups the world’s most advanced economies, was a “very outdated group of countries.”
    “I’m postponing it because I don’t feel that as a G7 it properly represents what’s going on in the world,” Trump said.

    That was rhetorical, by the way.
    again, no POTUS could have done better, and one thing Trump is proving, is that his haters are angry little snowflakes who think their reality or future relies entirely on Trump actions or decisions

    how can anyone be so naive? or are they just angry with themselves?

    Read he turned off the lights at the White House last night when the protesters got near, just like you do when you run out of candy and hide from the trick or treaters.

    Trump took shelter in White House bunker as protests raged

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Secret Service agents rushed President Donald Trump to a White House bunker on Friday night as hundreds of protesters gathered outside the executive mansion, some of them throwing rocks and tugging at police barricades.

    Trump spent nearly an hour in the bunker, which was designed for use in emergencies like terrorist attacks, according to a Republican close to the White House who was not authorized to publicly discuss private matters and spoke on the condition of anonymity. The account was confirmed by an administration official who also spoke on the condition of anonymity.

    The abrupt decision by the agents underscored the rattled mood inside the White House, where the chants from protesters in Lafayette Park could be heard all weekend and Secret Service agents and law enforcement officers struggled to contain the crowds.

    Somebody (even if American citizen) means it truly that his President should not be protected by his bodyguards?

    More than 50 Secret Service agents are injured in clashes outside the White House: Rioters throw Molotov cocktails in DC while looters trash Gucci and Chanel stores in NYC on a sixth night of violence in cities across the US

    Demonstrations from Washington DC to Los Angeles have swelled from peaceful protests - sparked by the death of a black man, George Floyd, in

    Minneapolis police custody last Monday - into scenes of violence

    National Guard troops have been deployed in at least 15 states and Washington DC

    More than 4,100 people were arrested this weekend alone as the violence continued to escalate and cities enacted strict curfews

    Protesters on Sunday set fires just mere feet from the White House, crowds raided high-end stores in New York and San Francisco and hurled rocks and
    Molotov cocktails at police in Philadelphia

    Police fired tear gas and stun grenades outside the White House late Sunday as fires were set in the historic St. John's Episcopal Church and Lafayette Park in front of the White House

    Protests have unfolded in at least 145 cities across the country over the past week as people gather in outrage over the horrifying death of George Floyd who was killed in police custody last week

    The demonstrations have marked unparalleled civil unrest in the US that hasn't been seen since the 1968 assassination of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr

    Donald Trump spent Sunday berating his enemies on Twitter and demanding 'law and order' in Democratic-run cities but did not appear in public and opted against making a televised address to calm tensions

    It has since emerged that Trump was rushed by Secret Service agents to a White House bunker on Friday night as hundreds of protesters gathered outside

    You’d be forgiven if you hadn’t noticed. His verbal bombshells are louder than ever, but Donald J Trump is no longer president of the United States.

    By having no constructive response to any of the monumental crises now convulsing America, Trump has abdicated his office.

    He is not governing. He’s golfing, watching cable TV and tweeting.

    How has Trump responded to the widespread unrest following the murder in Minneapolis of George Floyd, a black man who died after a white police officer knelt on his neck for minutes as he was handcuffed on the ground?


    Trump called the protesters “thugs” and threatened to have them shot. “When the looting starts, the shooting starts,” he tweeted, parroting a former Miami police chief whose words spurred race riots in the late 1960s.


    On Saturday, he gloated about “the most vicious dogs, and most ominous weapons” awaiting protesters outside the White House, should they ever break through Secret Service lines.

    Trump’s response to the last three ghastly months of mounting disease and death has been just as heedless. Since claiming Covid-19 was a “Democratic hoax” and muzzling public health officials, he has punted management of the coronavirus to the states.

    Governors have had to find ventilators to keep patients alive and protective equipment for hospital and other essential workers who lack it, often bidding against each other. They have had to decide how, when and where to reopen their economies.


    Trump has claimed “no responsibility at all” for testing and contact-tracing – the keys to containing the virus. His new “plan” places responsibility on states to do their own testing and contact-tracing.


    Trump is also awol in the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression.


    More than 41 million Americans are jobless. In the coming weeks temporary eviction moratoriums are set to end in half of the states. One-fifth of Americans missed rent payments this month. Extra unemployment benefits are set to expire at the end of July.

    What is Trump’s response? Like Herbert Hoover, who in 1930 said “the worst is behind us” as thousands starved, Trump says the economy will improve and does nothing about the growing hardship. The Democratic-led House passed a $3tn relief package on 15 May. Mitch McConnell has recessed the Senate without taking action and Trump calls the bill dead on arrival.


    What about other pressing issues a real president would be addressing? The House has passed nearly 400 bills this term, including measures to reduce climate change, enhance election security, require background checks on gun sales, reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act and reform campaign finance. All are languishing in McConnell’s inbox. Trump doesn’t seem to be aware of any of them.

    There is nothing inherently wrong with golfing, watching television and tweeting. But if that’s pretty much all that a president does when the nation is engulfed in crises, he is not a president.


    Trump’s tweets are no substitute for governing. They are mostly about getting even.


    When he’s not fomenting violence against black protesters, he’s accusing a media personality of committing murder, retweeting slurs about a black female politician’s weight and the House speaker’s looks, conjuring up conspiracies against himself supposedly organized by Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, and encouraging his followers to “liberate” their states from lockdown restrictions.


    He tweets bogus threats that he has no power to carry out – withholding funds from states that expand absentee voting, “overruling” governors who don’t allow places of worship to reopen “right away”, and punishing Twitter for factchecking him.


    And he lies incessantly.


    In reality,
    Donald Trump doesn’t run the government of the United States. He doesn’t manage anything. He doesn’t organize anyone. He doesn’t administer or oversee or supervise. He doesn’t read memos. He hates meetings. He has no patience for briefings. His White House is in perpetual chaos.

    His advisers aren’t truth-tellers. They’re toadies, lackeys, sycophants and relatives.

    Since moving into the Oval Office in January 2017, Trump hasn’t shown an ounce of interest in governing. He obsesses only about himself.


    But it has taken the present set of crises to reveal the depths of his self-absorbed abdication – his utter contempt for his job, his total repudiation of his office.


    Trump’s nonfeasance goes far beyond an absence of leadership or inattention to traditional norms and roles. In a time of national trauma, he has relinquished the core duties and responsibilities of the presidency.


    He is no longer president. The sooner we stop treating him as if he were, the better.

    So I guess those people can toss out their MAGA hats.....

    Trump failed. He doesn't need to be impeached. He just needs to be fired. He hasn't done his job. Simple as that!

    On the call to governors today Trump said "If you don't dominate, you're wasting your time. They're going to run all over you, you'll look like a bunch of jerks. " There is only one person looking like a jerk in all of this.
