Some of the assertions Bolton made in his book about how Trump conducted himself as president were:
- Trump “saw conspiracies behind rocks, and remained stunningly uninformed on how to run the White House, let alone the huge federal government.”
- Had only two intelligence briefings a week “and in most of those, he spoke at greater length than the briefers, often on matters completely unrelated to the subjects at hand.”
- Trump made no decision that wasn’t driven by re-election calculations.”
- “The president “pleaded” with China’s Xi Jinping last to help his reelection prospects”.
- Tried to force political help from Ukraine’s President Zelenskyy by withholding military supplies unless he helped find dirt on Joe Biden
Trump tried to legally stopped the release of every book about his conduct as president. The books by former members of his administration have all revealed similar concerning information about his incompetence. Career government officials with expertise in areas related to the Constitution, foreign policy, national security, the economy, climate change, social justice and the military reported Trump had limited or no knowledge in many of these areas. Especially concerning was his lack of understanding of how a democratic government functions. These tell-all books, written by hard-core Republican super-conservatives add to a growing narrative that Trump is an unqualified autocrat gunning to take down democracy. The silence about Trump’s conduct by these former Trump allies was unpatriotic and gave Trump more time to embed his extremist MAGA ideology into the minds of a base that he has called ” dumb”. However late in coming, these revelations about Trump are disturbing and they must be used by democrats in their messaging as the mid-terms approach.
ANOTHER BIG LIE AND SLOGAN TRUMP USES TO GASLIGHT HIS SUPPORTERS IS THE TERM “RINO” ( Republicans in name only). THE ONLY SKILL HE BROUGHT TO OFFICE WAS HIS ABILITY TO PRODUCE FALSE MESSAGES THAT CAPTURE VOTES. HE USES THE TERM ” RINO” TO LABEL ANYONE WHO DOESN’T BLINDLY SUPPORT ANYTHING HE SAYS, WANTS, OR DOES. REPUBLICANS WHO HAVE REJECTED TRUMP ARE PATRIOTS WITH PROVEN RECORDS OF STAUNCH CONSERVATISM. TRUMP’S A FAKE. IN THE PAST HE HAS BEEN PRO CHOICE, PRO- CLINTON, VOTED DEMOCRAT, AND SECULAR NOT RELIGIOUS.
TRUMP WAS THE “RINO- CHIEF. ”
