‘Trump is the laughing stock of the world’

With the 2020 U.S. Presidential Campaign underway, the likelihood of having more debates with challengers to Donald Trump has taken a new turn with two Republicans joining the race, with former Representative Joe Walsh of Illinois entering on August 24th launching his bid for the Republican nomination, and Bill Weld, the former governor of Massachusetts.

Twenty Democratic candidates are still in the mix although the requirements to stay in the race have been more of a challenge for them than Trump; they must top one percent in three polls from pollsters approved by the Democratic National Committee or tally 65,000 unique campaign donors, with at least 200 donors in 20 different states.

The only requirement that is not held to an American standard is the ethical and moral character of the individual candidates. Trump would not be allowed to participate if there was a requirement of respecting women, with 22 accusers who have come forward with allegations of sexual assault, and the number may grow in the coming days even if his hush money is offered to them, as he did with “Stormy Daniels” and Karen McDougal, both in the porn industry, and have received monetary payments for their silence (that didn’t work).

Although the Democrats cannot claim to be scandal free, they certainly do not come close to the record number of dramatic incidents that shame the entire electoral process. Trump’s blame game is exemplified with his Zero Tolerance Immigration Policy that has been a glaring example of racism and inhumanity of historical proportions.

Ironically, Trump is a “Chain Migrant” of German descent who married two immigrant wives (Ivana and Melanija) and has four “Anchor Babies (Donald Jr., Eric, Ivanka, and Barron); his present wife, Melanija Knavs Knauss Trump and her parents were given fast-tracked American citizenship because of Trump’s blatant disregard for the Rule of Law.

The Evangelical Christian churches have even sacrificed their faith for who they have deemed the fulfillment of Biblical prophecy; Trump has even declared himself to be the “Chosen One” and the “King of Israel” while imposing conditions on America that are reminiscent of Nazi Germany. He has even been endorsed by the Ku Klux Klan, a White Supremacist organization and he has called himself a White Nationalist.

Trump is the laughing stock of the world. His noticeable absence from important meetings at the recent G7 Summit are indicative that he is not a world leader. The pathetic rationalization of his scandal ridden White House administration is exemplified in the Robert Mueller Investigation Report that concluded there was substantial evidence of Russian Oligarchy interference in the 2016 U.S. Elections that is now under threat for the same attacks in 2020.

Donald Trump has abdicated his moral authority and any ethical compass that is required for the position as President of the United States of America. Register to vote in the upcoming elections and keep New Mexico a Blue Stronghold. Something that we cannot take for granted.
