He is disputing it, but really - it reads exactly like the petty kind of crap he would say.

Yep, that's what he said. Pathetic, really. Not like Trump himself ever served for his country, is it?

The poor man was crippled by bone spurs. And hamberders. And glasses of water. And a dislike of losers, such as the American military.

Washington Post: Trump’s refusal to join a global vaccine effort epitomizes an America that’s isolated and weak

PRESIDENT TRUMP touted his “America First” philosophy in his inaugural address as making the United States “unstoppable.” But the reality is that under Mr. Trump, the United States is in retreat. His refusal to join a global vaccine effort organized in part by the World Health Organization is yet another example of America isolated and weak.

The United States has decided not to participate in a global drive to develop, manufacture and equitably distribute a coronavirus vaccine known as the Covid-19 Vaccines Global Access (Covax) Facility. The project is led by the WHO; Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance; and the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations, a public-private global vaccine development project. The Covax effort now has 172 nations signed up — Japan, Germany and the European Commission have joined — with nine candidate vaccines in its portfolio, four more under discussion and nine others being evaluated for the longer term. The project is essentially a joint effort to procure vaccines and pool the risk so that when a safe and effective vaccine is found, it can be made available to all nations in the project as soon as possible. Those countries that join the program will be promised enough vaccine doses to cover 20 percent of their population at the outset. The goal is to acquire 2 billion doses by the end of next year.

There are many advantages to such a global effort, especially for smaller nations that are being stricken with the virus but lack resources to develop or purchase vaccine supplies on their own. If the poorer populations of the globe are left unprotected — and if the virus continues to ravage them — then the richer nations will not be free of the scourge, nor will the global economy rebound to full health. An important facet of this is the Covax Advance Market Commitment, launched by Gavi, a financing instrument aimed at helping 92 lower- and middle-income economies in the Covax project. It has raised more than $600 million of an initial goal of $2 billion in seed money from sovereign donors as well as philanthropy and the private sector.

Of course he did... "Donald Trump casts doubt on Navalny poisoning, saying US 'hasn't had any proof'"

 

 

President Donald Trump said the United States must look “very seriously” into the poisoning of Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny, but that his administration had not yet seen any proof.

 

“I think we have to look at it very seriously, if it’s the case,” he said, before talking at length about his diplomatic efforts in North Korea and nuclear non-proliferation in Russia. “I don’t know exactly what happened. It’s tragic. It’s terrible, it shouldn’t happen. We haven’t had any proof yet, but I will take a look.

 

“It is interesting that everybody’s always mentioning Russia … but I think probably China at this point is a nation that you should be talking about much more so than Russia.”

Trump's "let's make the government machine more racist" action.

 

 

US President Donald Trump has ordered federal agencies to stop racial sensitivity training, labelling it "divisive, anti-American propaganda".

 

A memo to government agencies says it has come to his attention that millions of dollars of taxpayers' money have funded such "trainings".

 

The document says these sessions only foster resentment in the workforce.

 

Mr Trump has previously said he does not believe systemic racism is a problem in the US.

Usually in the US this would be called the "crazy season," two months before the US election.

But what is a stronger word than "crazy"?

Given that Novichok is a USSR/Russian "invention" (they own that sh*t), then there's a couple of choices:

 

The Russian government did it or the Russian government has lost control of stocks of a nerve agent they should never have had in the first place, and has let it get into the hands of "terrorists" who seem to be intent on killing people who the Russian government does not like. Trump's position is lose either way.

Trump supporters will continue to wave the flag, say they're "patriots" and dismiss this by saying "so what - we knew he was a bit of an a**hole - that's why we voted for him".

I understand that "Unfit" is being streamed by Amazon, though I haven't confirm it.

From the Washington Post

The documentary “#Unfit: The Psychology of Donald Trump” states its thesis, unambiguously, in its title: That the current occupant of the White House is not fit for office, because, as argued by the film’s subjects, his malignant narcissism and other disqualifying psychological disorders.

The talking heads include, chiefly, psychologist John Gartner of A Duty to Warn and attorney George Conway of the Lincoln Project, two anti-Trump groups. (Conway recently announced that he was stepping back from the Lincoln Project.)

Directed by filmmaker Dan Partland, “#Unfit” is lively and often as funny as it is frightening, as it attempts to do a few things: Explain to the viewer how we got here, why it’s a dangerous place to be and how we can extricate ourselves from this morass. That last part is also encapsulated in a single word: Vote

Since Trump, the Republicans and Fox News have and will be espousing that America was founded as a Christian nation, here's an opposite view

America is Not a Christian Nation

Seth Andrews reveals why the United States isn't founded on Christianity, and why the Christian Nation narrative is actually a betrayal of the U.S. Constitution.
