Donald Trump is on an overseas trip to meet with government leaders in Japan, and it’s always a sure bet that anytime Trump is in another country representing America, a national embarrassment is sure to come. If his Saturday morning tweets are any indication, this trip will be no different.
It’s only a matter of time before Trump begins ranting to leaders in the Japanese government and to cameras about the Mueller report, Democrats, the media, and how unfair everyone is to him. It’s one of the only predictable patterns Americans can expect from this president.
Trump’s insistence that a “trade war” began with China decades ago leaves out the fact that the moves Trump has made to address the problem has only made a bad situation worse. Bailouts to farmers who are suffering under Trump’s system of tariffs are unprecedented, although those bailouts haven’t really gone to farmers. So far, they’ve gone to big agriculture corporations who are losing money thanks to the trade war, which is fairly typical of Trump. He may pronounce himself the representative of “the little guy,” but so far his presidency has only benefitted the rich.
Also, the Age of Enlightenment happened 200 years ago. Trump’s hubris is yet another aspect of his presidency that has never been seen before in history. A man who doesn’t know the difference between “there” and “their” isn’t exactly the best leader of an Age of Enlightenment.
Twitter wasn’t buying Trump’s lies from Japan any more than they do from America. Read some of their comments below:
