The November 2016 election reflects that hate across the nation is winning and diversity is losing.

The Southern Poverty Law Center’s Intelligence Report provides a comprehensive update about domestic hate and extremism in the United States. Since President Trump’s inauguration, not a week has gone by without some kind of racist violence from the radical right linked to the Trump administration and their policies. The violence in Charlottesville last August illustrated how the divisive Trump presidency has emboldened and energized white supremacists.

It is very clear that 45 is not capable to lead this country. Every time he opens his mouth or tweets, he speaks or writes foolish things that are no longer believable. What we have is shame and embarrassment for our country around the world.

As of July 2018, he continues to blame his mess on former President Obama and Hillary Clinton – racist code – regardless of the incoherence of the argument because it’s red meat for his base.

He spent eight years howling, “There’s a black Kenyan Muslim in the White House,” then packaged that with lies and misinformation. What the country got in the 2016 election was a racist, sexist, xenophobic, misogynistic liar who doesn’t know anything about being a leader. He is surrounded by a herd of white supremacist loyalists in an overwhelming alliance with white evangelicals.

What happened in Helsinki, Finland, with Russian President Vladimir Putin illustrates that President Trump’s performance and actions are a betrayal of his oath of office and American values and an abdication of his responsibly to represent all Americans.

The letter “T” – for treason – should be added to the factual evidence.
