Our political world has turned upside down. Once we were the beacon of hope for our European allies and those filigreeing democracies throughout the world.
Before the rise of China, it was the Soviet Union under Lenin whose history of segregating Berlin from the western allies continued until its ultimate fall. It was the unfaltering effort of our Democratic and ultimately our Republican President Ronald Reagan that ultimately transformed Germany to the Democratic nation it is today. Except for the philosophical differences as to how to better serve our citizens, there was never a conflict as to either party as their ultimate goal to be the servants of us, their American citizens.
Yet today we have the administration of Trump, who has demoralized our relationship with the European Nation, NATO, as well as our traditional friends and neighbors throughout the world. For our arch enemy North Korea, Trump has publicly stated twice that he “loves Kim Jong-un,” its dictator, and now he has a special envoy to meet with Putin, the same person that Trump had a 30-minute secret meeting with in Moscow.
From my point of view, “Trump” is a “traitor” to our country and for what it stands.
I would appreciate hearing from those that disagree with me!
