  1. "Trump’s cries of “fake news” work incessantly to set limits on what is thinkable. Reason, standards of evidence, consistency and logic no longer serve the truth, according to Trump, because the latter are crooked ideological devices used by enemies of the state. Orwell’s “thought crimes” are Trump’s “fake news.” Orwell’s “Ministry of Truth” is Trump’s “Ministry of Fake News. The notion of truth is viewed by this president as a corrupt tool used by the critical media to question his dismissal of legal checks on his power, particularly his attacks on judges, courts and any other governing institutions that will not promise him complete and unchecked loyalty.” https://www.juancole.com/2018/01/shithole-countries-dictators.html
  2. ""I’m not eating Oreos anymore, you know that—but neither is Chris," Trump said. "You’re not eating Oreos anymore. No more Oreos. For either of us, Chris. Don’t feel bad." http://www.newsweek.com/donald-trump-overweight-jokes-other-politicians-590515

  4. "According to the Washington Post, Republican lawmakers – one in particular – is using candy to stay on the president’s good side. Days later, the No. 2 Republican in the House — known for his relentless cultivation of political alliances — bought a plentiful supply of Starbursts and asked a staffer to sort through the pile, placing only those two flavors in a jar. McCarthy made sure his name was on the side of the gift, which was delivered to a grinning Trump, according to a White House official." http://www.politicususa.com/2018/01/15/trump-child-gop-lawmakers-candy-stay-good-side.html
  5. "Trump’s fear of AIDS seems to have been acute. He reportedly abandoned his relationship with his mentor, Roy Cohn, when the former aide to the red-baiting Senator Joseph McCarthy was diagnosed with AIDS; the clearest example is the link that seems to exist in his mind between Haitian immigrants and AIDS. " https://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2018/01/15/aids-panic-trump-haitians-216324?lo=ap_d1
  6. "On the campaign trail in 2016, Trump had promised, “I’m going to be working for you. I’m not going to have time to play golf.”
  7. Trump expresses no pity or sympathy. but xenophobic violence towards immigrants in Africa is'nt uncommon , Africans can be racist too, and the problems African countries can't solve come from the Africans themselves.
  8. One of the problems we do have lies in the % of people of muslim culture ( wathever their nationality, including nationals) actually in jail compared to the % this culture weighs in the total population. And these numbers speak. I can't tell for Germany specifically, but it's a real threat since some of them do radicalize in prison. These are facts. This is a failure https://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/mar/17/are-french-prisons-finishing-schools-for-terrorism
  9. "the crude lust with which he hunts his perceived detractors, and the veritable “sport” he makes of meting out his lacerating, punitive fury. This is far more indicative of someone bidding, shamelessly, to institute “omnipotent control” over others. Traits like fearlessness, unaccountableness, mesmerizing charisma, dominance, confidence, arrogance, contemptuousness, antisocial audacity, unconscionableness, recklessness, manipulativeness, untruthfulness and outrageousness arise from shamelessness. Trump has all these traits, and he’s never sought to hide them." https://www.powercommunicating.com/2017/03/30/our-shameless-president/
  10. ""I'll tell you what's at the bottom of it," he said. "If you can convince the lowest white man he's better than the best colored man, he won't notice you're picking his pocket. Hell, give him somebody to look down on, and he'll empty his pockets for you." 'How LBJ Foresaw the Election of Donald Trump http://bigthink.com/21st-century-spirituality/lbj-lowest-white-man https://www.washingtonpost.com/archive/opinions/1988/11/13/what-a-real-president-was-like/d483c1be-d0da-43b7-bde6-04e10106ff6c/?utm_term=.e08df43bb2b6
  11. President Who Has Lied Over 2,000 Times While In Office Claims He Never Made “Shithole” Comment "Of course, he called countries with majority black and Latino populations “shitholes.” Such a comment is completely in line with Trump’s claims that Mexicans are rapists, Puerto Ricans are ungrateful, and African-Americans are lazy. Trump’s “shithole” comment was a rare statement of truth about how he really feels about non-whites.” http://www.politicususa.com/2018/01/12/president-lied-2000-times-office-claims-shithole-comment.html
  12. "A House Democrat Just Proposed The “Stable Genius Act” To Make Medical Exams For Presidential Candidates A Requirement" http://www.politicususa.com/2018/01/10/house-democrat-proposed-stable-genius-act-medical-exams-presidential-candidates-requirement.html
  13. If you think "no" , so then ...would it be ".The president’s focus on the nationality, rather than on the personal merits, of immigrants suggests what he means by “merit-based” immigration.. the logic of “us” being better than “them,” with white Scandinavians reflecting a self-definition of “us,” that excludes blacks and latinos regardless of their relationship to this country." ? https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2018/01/trump/550454/
