Watch Trump brag about ghosting foreign leaders for weeks during his first year in office

Published

on

President Donald Trump recounted a bizarre story about refusing to speak to foreign leaders during a speech to a hate group on Saturday.

Trump addressed the Values Voters Summit, which is hosted by the Family Research Council — a designated hate group according to the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Trump told the crowd he received “pressure” to not move the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.

The president said he received calls from kings — and then provided his impersonation of how a king sounds.

“I stopped taking phone calls,” Trump admitted. “So I said I will not take their call, I will call them back in a couple of weeks.”

Trump said that after blowing off leaders, he moved the embassy and “nothing happened.”

“Everyone is happy,” Trump claimed.

In reality, the United Nations Security Council held an emergency meeting the very next day where 14 of the 15 members condemned Trump’s actions. The United States vetoed the resolution.

The Trump administration has not been seen by the Palestinians as an honest broker for peace in the Middle East since the decision.

Fifty-eight Palestinians were killed by Israel Defence Forces the day the embassy opened.

They were "openly siding [with] white supremacy and causing a civil war," which he said he thought was "far worse than anything Trump could do."

Trump’s dangerous mental condition grows worse as America faces devastating crises: Yale psychiatrist

Published

on

A nation most afflicted with a mental health problem is the least likely to address it.  I am speaking of the mental health, or lack thereof, of the president.  His psychological impairments have been deadly through action and inaction, and are now promoting police brutality through pronouncements such as, “when the looting starts, the shooting starts,” while marking protesters as “thugs”.
