Donald Trump murders people

- Advertisement -
He kills them without remorse, without shame he should feel and does so with immoral prejudice.

He's a murderer.

"Even if he's a one-term president, Trump will have caused, directly or indirectly, the premature deaths of a large number of Americans, writes Paul Krugman of The New York Times.

Some of those deaths will come at the hands of right-wing, white nationalist extremists, who are a rapidly growing threat, partly because they feel empowered by a president who calls them "very fine people."

Some will come from failures of governance, like the inadequate response to Hurricane Maria, which surely contributed to the high death toll in Puerto Rico. (Reminder: Puerto Ricans are U.S. citizens.)

Some will come from the administration's continuing efforts to sabotage Obamacare, which have failed to kill health reform but have stalled the decline in the number of uninsured, meaning that many people still aren't getting the health care they need. Of course, if Trump gets his way and eliminates Obamacare altogether, things on this front will get much, much worse.

In America, all but seven states have laws that consider anyone who is involved in actions that result in needless death can be charged with murder.

Trump's actions result in unnecessary and needless deaths throughout America. Thousands of U.S. citizens in Puerto Rico died because Trump intentionally delayed needed rescue efforts during disasters.

Thousands have been slaughtered by the heinous white supremacists Trump emboldened by his unwillingness to condemn their actions and called them, as Krugman noted, "very fine people."

Elsewhere in the world, Trump's unflinching support for a murderous leader like Russia's Vladimir Putin put a U.S. Seal of Approval on the deaths of thousands of Russian dissidents.

The same can be said of Trump's support of North Korea's homicidal "Supreme Leader" Kim Jong-un, or his nasty habit of looking the other way at the dismemberment and murder of Jamal Khashoggi, an American citizen, by a Saudi Prince who helped the Trump family make millions on building projects.

Trump's sleazy cutback on federal regulations on the meat industry has increased deaths from food-borne illness and the hundred of deaths from just two recent crashes of Boeing 737 Max 8 jetliners are tracing back to cutbacks by FAA regulation of the airline industry. Trump put a former Boeing senior officer in charge of the FAA.

extrapolate and the Repuglican party is also guilty of murder. And keep going, looking at the idea that tens of thousands die because of lack of health insurance, then add Obama, Pelosi and all the neoliberal Dems who have blocked single payer. And we haven't even touched on AUMF (authorization of the use of military force.)

I agree with you wholeheartedly Rob. I have been saying for at least two decades maybe more that Republicans are either murderers or they support murderers and their murderous policies. And that goes for conservative centrist corporate Democrats too. Like Obama, Pelosi, Schumer, Hoyer, Feinstein, Gillenbrand, Boxer, Booker, Biden, B. Lincoln, Landrieu, etc. But back to republicans. Their policies literally kill millions world wide. And people say that we should be civil with them. I think that is illogical. To me off with their heads. They are offing ours.

I would add Johnson and Nixon in that list too. They did a great job of getting rid of the Kennedy's and King.

Thompson. Murderous like Putin? There is no equivalence or comparison.

Trump and other previous recent U.S. presidents are far worse by far including Obama.
