A terrorist attack on US soil is probably the only thing in the universe that could turn our straggling and dejected president into a rock star. Remember what 9-11 did for Junior? Overnight, he had the highest approval ratings in Gallup history. Why else has Trump been so persistent on his Stalin-esque travel ban? Even the most loyal Trumpkin will admit, he hasn’t done anything right yet in his presidency.
They would certainly contend his nomination of a conservative Supreme Court judge is a great victory. It is. But I’d say since that judge was up to Obama to nominate, we should credit the republican senate for stubbornly waiting for a republican president.
Our president is in trouble. His approval ratings is at record low levels just a few weeks into his presidency. The best part is that republicans have no one to blame but themselves. Democrats have been completely obliterated from Washington. The only people obstructing The Great Deceiver from incinerating the country, are republicans concerned about their re-elections.
The only people who approve of Trump is that same devoted demographic that packed the arenas to see him during the campaign. Uneducated and poor, describes Trump’s biggest supporters. Trump knows if he does not have them, he has no one. Hence, he needs to maintain their loyalty. As a result, Trump crafts his legislation to appease this group of uneducated and overall wearing supporters.
Like when he signed out of the Paris Climate Agreement. Republicans and democrats advised our president not to do this. Everyone was against this. Many political analysts opined that this decision could be the worst thing he could do. Leaving the Paris Accord was something Trump threatened during the campaign. He reasoned with his coal mining supporters, that if elected, he would get us out of the Paris Accord. Along this twisted chain of logic, coal miners would get their jobs back.
It sounds horrible, but if a terrorism act took place in America, Trump would benefit. For starters, he has been advocating his stupid travel ban since the campaigns. Now that everyone with a triple digit IQ has either blocked or fought this ban, Trump is proud to stamp his name on it.
Trump’s travel ban restricts entrance into the US from several Muslim countries. During the campaign, Trump called for a “total and complete shutdown” of Muslim immigration into the country. When he was elected, the protests against his travel ban were so severe, Trump was forced to revise the ban. His original travel ban lasted a measly eight days, before a judge struck it down.
After their legislation dies so quickly, most presidents would just start from scratch. If you really want to help Americans so bad, why keep shoving the same bill back in our faces. After every judge has overruled it, wouldn’t it be more likely to help us with a bill that could easily get passed?
However, if the president is more concerned with his image, than of course he wants only HIS bill to pass.
Another terrorism act will occur in America. When it does, Trump will point his orange face into the camera and preach about how we should’ve listened to him. Suddenly, Trump will go from the rambling crazy uncle in the back seat to the vindicated wise man.
Apparently, Trump cares a lot more about protecting his business than protecting your child from the next terrorist. Why then, does his revised travel ban exempt countries where actual terrorists have come from?
The six Muslim countries that Trump labeled too dangerous to enter our county are Sudan, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia and Yemen. No one could figure out what made Trump come to such a decision. Considering the fact that,
Nationals of the seven countries singled out by Trump have killed zero people in terrorist attacks on U.S. soil between 1975 and 2015. TheAtlantic article
What is oddly missing from that list? Saudi Arabia, Egypt or the United Arab Emirates – all countries with which Trump did business and from where the 9/11 plane hijackers came.
If Trump banned any of the countries that actually harbors a terrorist, his business would be damaged. Could
Trump needs to be proven right. The world protested his travel ban. If a terrorism attack occurs, Trump could say we should’ve been more receptive to his travel ban.
