President Trump Loves America

President Trump says if you speak ill of America, you're welcome to leave. But does that rule apply to him?

What does President Trump have to say about America?

Now that he’s president, Donald Trump is adamant that criticizing America or him — especially if you’re a Democratic congresswoman of color — is somehow crossing the line. Alluding to such critiques, he said, “you can’t talk that way about our country. Not when I’m the president.” Trump’s criticisms of the Obama-era America extended all the way through his inauguration, during which he said he was taking the reins of a country mired in “American Carnage” — and have continued to the present.

Trump’s words, according to Stephen Miller, were part of a political campaign to put America first and were not intended to sow discord, while the first-term lawmakers are bent on expressing “anti-American sentiment.” House policy adviser Stephen Miller struggled mightily to explain why taking aim at the president was okay while Obama was in office but isn’t now. Senior Advisor to the president on Policy Stephen Miller first insisted that Trump, in contrast with Ocasio-Cortez and company, is a champion of “the principles of Western civilization,” the implication being that Obama and the congresswomen of color he’s been feuding with are not. Miller ultimately resorted to arguing that Trump’s policies are right whereas Obama’s were not — and that therefore, Trump was justified in criticizing the government in a way the Democratic congresswomen in question are not.

Dozens of examples like this could be cited. During the Obama years, Trump wrote that “our country is going to hell,” “broken,” falling apart,” “truly in a mess,” and — in another memorable one posted just before his presidential run — “a laughing stock that is going to hell.” And it wasn’t just tweets — during his presidential campaign, running down America was a regular part of Trump’s speeches. Then again, as is the case with many things having to do with Trump and his behavior, it’s hard to explain the inexplicable.

    Trump must go back to the land where his family came from, either Scotland or Germany, whichever he prefers.

    Why is President Trump called a racist? Does it have anything to do with all these racist things he's said?

    Similar statement made one of our ex deputy minister of foreign affairs a president... That was during Kosovo bombings... Many refugees flee in Macedonia and when the journalists were posing him questions about the living conditions within the refugee camps, he made a statement... If u dont like it, bring them airplanes and take them out... A year later, due to such statement, he won the election ;)

    Well Mr. president, the jobs created today are due to the past administration's efforts. But, since the time you have taken over, what have you done to further the conditions of the infrastructure? What have you done for education? What have you done to stop the flow of narcotics? What have you done to claim you have won? What have you done in order to balance the budget? What have you done for health care?

    Now, here are the things you accomplished: You have given voice to the groups of people who know nothing but hatred, violence, Antisemitism and crime. You have divided the country, you have not been able to pass one single legislation except the one that only helped the billionaires, you have undone whatever that was supposed to help global warming and clean air, you have antagonized our allies, you have added to the national debt, the economy will slow down in matter of 4-6 months,.... In my view as well as millions of others, your accomplishments don't add up to call it a success.
