On Sunday, The Washington Post published an article outlining Trump’s disastrous summer, which could ultimately compromise his chances for re-election in 2020.
- Trump leveled racist attacks against four congresswomen of color dubbed “the Squad.”
- He derided the majority-black city of Baltimore as “rat and rodent infested.”
- His anti-immigrant rhetoric was echoed in a missive that authorities believe a mass shooting suspect posted.
- His visits to Dayton, Ohio, and El Paso after the gun massacres in those cities served to divide rather than heal.
Besides his inability to bring our country together and help us heal, Trump’s bigly economy has started to weaken and has numerous economists predicting a recession.
- Trump’s Trade War has intensified with new tariffs implemented on September 1, 2019.
- The G-7 summit left world leaders concerned about his leadership and the United States’ stability as a world leader.
- Trump returned from the G-7 summit in a foul mood and irritated with the press for what he thinks was negative coverage of his performance at the summit.
Either Trump read The Post’s article or someone informed him of it because he tweeted about it earlier Monday before hitting the links.
The White House’s official response to The Post’s article was, “(The President) accomplished more at this point in his first term than any president in history.”
