Of all the areas of incompetency within the Trump presidency that are frightening (and there are many), his absolutely ignorance and/or unwillingness to understand the area of national security is truly one of the most terrifying.
Of course the president who is constantly complaining that the “fake news media” is biased against him is shilling a book by a “news” reporter from Fox News. That doesn’t make her biased, at all.
If that were the worst of the problems with Monday night’s tweets, it wouldn’t be so bad. These endless rants Trump has been on about his border wall, even threatening to shut down the government if he’s not given taxpayer money to fund a wall he promised Mexico would pay for, become even more enraging in the face of recent news when Trump refers to immigration as a problem of “national security.”
Russian President Vladimir Putin ordering hackers to infiltrate our democratic election system and our electric grids are national security issues. Democratic lawmakers being targeted by Russian hackers ahead of the midterms to once again influence our elections is a national security issue. Having a president who’s willing to sell out his country in exchange for Russian help to win the 2018 midterms and 2020 presidential race is definitely a national security issue.
The only issue Trump wants to talk about, though, is undocumented immigration, because that’s what his most racist and xenophobic base wants to hear.
Twitter poked holes in all of the president’s statements. See some of their comments below:
