The Republicans in Congress have yet to vote for a speaker, and whose interest does this serve the most? Donald Trump. Chaos and paralysis of our government plays straight into his hands as he projects himself to be the savior of all and everything. In this instance, also, Trump kills two birds with one stone when Congress is unable to pass any legislation to help both Israel and Ukraine in their wars. Ukraine, we might understand, says you. But, Israel?
Yes, Israel. In Trump’s mind, he believes American Jews have betrayed him because 80% usually vote for the democrats, and refuse to support his candidacy. His punishment is to punish Israel, which he believes is their country. On many occasions, Trump publicly attacked Jewish American leaders for their lack of total support and campaign contributions. Freezing funding for Israel is his payback.
Everyone should know by now how Donald Trump thinks and behaves.
There is no larger and looming danger to our country than Donald Trump.
AS WE SPEAK, TRUMP IS THINKING BLACKMAIL
Trump is considering all his options as he manipulates the Republican cowards in Congress, who lack the will to stand up to his bullying and treacherous behavior. However, considering he backed Jim Jordan, and the cretin did not win, it is obvious that his next choice of speaker will fare better given that 8 out of the 10 GOP lawmakers running for the leadership position are election deniers. The odds that Trump will control the House are on his side.
If one of those election deniers wins, watch for Trump pressuring him to deny Israel the aid unless he fills his campaign coffers with Jewish money. Watch for the perfect Trump blackmail to unfold. Even if the failure of such a sinister act has very little chance of succeeding, Trump is going to try anyway. He has nothing to lose when most of his supporters are closet antisemites.
If Jim Jordan can threaten those who did not vote for his speaker leadership position, you would think Trump will not do it to Israel? Think again.
There is no larger and looming danger to our country than Donald Trump. He acts like one, destroys like one, and helps divide the country like one. In our minds, he is that dangerous.
