Trump: Ground Zero Architect
By ~ Dajuan Candle ~
Ground zero, the epicenter from which death and destruction radiates. A place of evident calamity. A place of great action to which prompt attention is demanded and given. Ground zero, a spawning ground of hope and renewed faith.
Given these defining choices one might wonder what does any, if not all of these possible descriptions of ground zero, have in common. Well, if the words and actions of President Donald J. Trump are considered along with them the answer would be he. And so it is.
With Trump as President such places and causes of action, on his call, have been multiplied and magnified. Old concerns have been ratcheted up and clarion calls made. North Korea, a nation of great concern spanning the administrations of many American Presidents, is now beyond the reach of Diplomatic efforts because President Trump has said so.
North Korea, according to the Trump, must be dealt with --with the mightiest of blows. Iran, another concern, a nation just recently brought to the table of redress, hopefully leading to peace and relaxed coexistence, concerning the freeing of their monies, by way of an olive branch. Has now been told that the agreement struck between they, the prior American President and other nations, isn't worth the paper it is written on because, as seen through his eyes, they too are an evil incarnation. Therefore he will not honor the agreement and will work to have it rescinded --torn to shreds, by any means necessary.
Aside from those unwisely trumped up international crisis so too does exist the trumped up crisis at home. Crisis that need not be the crisis they are becoming. The President, for reasons not yet explained, seems determined to make making mountains out of mole hills, both near and far, the legacy of his Presidency. What can explain his efforts to turn those protesters who hold high the banner "Black lives Matter" into enemies of the State? They do not wish to harm the country, they wish to make it better for them and by default for all. But Trump doesn't see it that way. All he sees is the destruction of good and earnest American pride; flag desecration; national dishonor and the trampling of the graves of our war dead, our heroes. How can a protest for equality be an affront to the nation? As determined by Trump it is. Why strike such a hornet's nest if it were? Such kindling of bad relations should not be the way of the office of the President. Sadly, it doesn't stop there.
What reason could there be for a sitting President to stop short of repudiating domestic terrorist groups such as American Nazis, the KKK, and those who protest alongside them other than for it to be seen by them as his way of offering them an Olive Branch of inclusion? The irony is, of long course, is that they don't want to be included, they want others excluded. Black Lives Matter, on the other hand, are the ones seeking inclusion --we matter too--, but they have been offered nary an Olive Branch. Oh what mountains from molehills he doth build.
If those ultimatums and daring challenges are not enough, he too, seemingly out of jealousy, in furtherance of the divide between Islamic extremist, made the call that America will slam it's doors shut in the face of those of the Muslim faith whom would like to make America home, visit, work or study. Actions, sarcastically assured, will result in whatever it is he wants them to think about his rule and this great nation being so. To top off this cake of rancor, he has also decided to throw people of Hispanic descent under the bus of forced mass exodus, children included.
With his continuous claims that his actions are bigly, huge, grand, superbly exceptional, even when proven false, we the people should not be surprised that we find out that he has bitten off much more than we can chew. Such is true and obvious to discerning minds, or any fourth grade child.
So many fires has he started and stoked.
So many flames has he fanned.
So many people has he left in awe, of his good-sense defying acts of reason, they only see one thing that rings true about his Presidency. Option one; he is a madman pretending to be President or, option two; he is an impersonator doing a damn good job of a madman pretending to be President. Regardless of the option chosen, the evidence is in and a conclusion reached. He is the greatest fanner of flames to ever be President of the United State of America and thusly is his own crown architect of prefabricated ground zeros.
Creating so many "be all end all" battles on so many different fronts all at the same time does lend credence to the questions more and more are asking about his sanity and does, so to, sew seeds that may give rise to his downfall. And if not his, the nations.
