President Donald Trump woke up Sunday morning at his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, and decided it was a good day to continue his attacks on the four progressive Democratic lawmakers he began targeting one week ago.
Now in day eight of his racist, nativist war on the Congresswomen who are also women of color, Trump called them “weak & insecure,” demanded an apology, and decided (contrary to all evidence) they are not “capable of loving our Country.”
America has had it with Trump’s hate-mongering, racism, and white supremacism, and many across the country are speaking out in very clear terms about this president and his Sunday morning attack.
Take a look:
I don’t believe the four Congresswomen are capable of loving our Country. They should apologize to America (and Israel) for the horrible (hateful) things they have said. They are destroying the Democrat Party, but are weak & insecure people who can never destroy our great Nation!

Un-American Donald Trump has said:
The United States is:
• a laughing stock
• a stupid country
• USA is not great
• … is going to hell
• Our military is going to hell
• The U.S. a third-world country
• The American Dream is Dead
IF YOU DON’T LIKE IT, YOU CAN LEAVE.

You’re a racist. A despicable, shameless, racist. And you’re obsessed with these four black and brown congresswomen because you know each one of them is 1-million times smarter, honest and more patriotic than you… #Trump

Trump said the US is a third world country and that everyone is laughing at us. No one said he should leave.

Trump continues to elevate these four American success stories & by bringing race back to the center of this campaign is making a fatal political as well as moral error. Now, want to talk about Congressmen who should apologize to America? How about King, Nunes, Gaetz & Jordan? https://t.co/G61tNG2b2m

These are the sick and troubled ramblings of a weak and insecure racist who refuses to apologize for calling America “a third-world country” when it had a black President and today calls African nations “shithole countries.” #25thamendment #25thamendmentnow

Trump: "I don't believe the four Congresswomen are capable of loving our country." "Are capable" is the tell. This isn't garden-variety (if deplorable) partisan demagoguery. This is racial and religious bigotry. For what characteristics make them incapable of loving our country? https://t.co/ZqtdZQf40f

Quotes from the occupant of the White House:
“If we don’t clean up OUR COUNTRY of the garbage soon, we are just going to do a death spiral!”
“The idea of American Greatness, of our country as the leader of the free and unfree world, has vanished.”
Waiting for your apology.

Your distraction tactic isn’t working. We see Meuller, the alleged rapes, Epstein, Nader, we see the kids weeping in your facilities, we see an illegitimate, racist president

How corporate lawyers made it harder to punish companies that destroy electronic evidence
In the early 2000s, a series of civil lawsuits against giant corporations illustrated the disastrous consequences that could ensue if a defendant failed to provide electronic evidence such as company emails or records. In one suit against tobacco giant Philip Morris in 2004, U.S. District Judge Gladys Kessler concluded that the company deliberately deleted troves of emails that contained incriminating information. She fined the company $2.7 million for the breach, levied $250,000 fines against each of the company supervisors found culpable and barred them from testifying at the trial.
Big corporations rallied for changes and got them. In 2006, the rules that govern federal litigation were changed to create a “safe harbor” that would protect companies from consequences for failing to save electronic evidence as long as they followed a consistent policy and, when put on notice of imminent litigation, preserved all relevant materials.
John Bolton had concerns about Donald Trump’s favors to autocrats: report
Former national security advisor John Bolton privately told the US attorney general last year about concerns that President Donald Trump was essentially granting favors to autocrats, The New York Times reported Monday.
It said the revelations, concerning the leaders of China and Turkey, come in an unpublished book manuscript by Bolton.
The same manuscript says Trump told Bolton that he wanted to continue freezing $391 million in security aid to Ukraine until officials there helped to investigate his political rivals, the Times previously reported.
Those allegations have roiled Trump's impeachment trial that is ongoing in the US Senate.

"Secretary of State Mike Pompeo got into an ugly dustup with an NPR reporter this week, and I've got something I want to get off my chest," Fox's Steve Hilton told his viewers on Sunday.
