Some of that I agree with & some I don't,,,
There has been an increased level of hate & division in this country
way before Trump became President,,,
Remember Ferguson,MO and Baltimore?
And all during the campaign it was a daily onslaught of negative attacks
towards Trump. Maybe they were justified but all that did was amp up
the "hate & division" in this country.
And I am in no way siding with Trump, I have always called it like I see it,,
But, the media & the majority of social media hasn't let the guy do the job
he was elected to do. It's a constant barrage of negativity by the media
which translates to the social media side exploding, which then increases
the "hate & division" levels.
And I'm sure Trump could have handled what took place in VA differently
or said something different to better satisfy everyone but you can't blame
him for what took place.
Since the police knew that protest or march in VA would cause violence, they
should have stopped it before it began. But noooooo,,,we have to protect the
freedom of speech thing, even if it means violence will occur.
Look, if you're to let a statue from the Civil War affect the way you live your
daily life & affect how you treat people, then you need more serious help after
they remove the statue.
Thomas Jefferson owned hundreds of slaves,,,,are they going to march near
Mount Rushmore & protest to have his likeness removed??
It wouldn't surprise me.

"We have endured Donald Trump for seven months. Although he has had few legislative victories, he has almost single-handedly destroyed the moral authority of the presidency of the United States at home and abroad; brought us to the brink of a nuclear war without consulting anyone; and sown division and hatred. He has given encouragement and legitimacy to the ugliest in America. How can this nation endure another 41 months of this man? There is already enough evidence to impeach Trump on grounds of abuse of power, obstruction of justice, and violation of the emoluments clause of the Constitution."
"Let’s be clear: There is already enough evidence to impeach Trump on grounds of abuse of power, obstruction of justice, and violation of the emoluments clause of the Constitution.
There is already enough evidence of mental impairment to invoke the 25th amendment.
I know, Republicans are in control of Congress. But this is no license for Trump to destroy the nation we love.
I know, removing Trump would mean having Mike Pence as president. But a principled right-winger is better for America and the world than an unhinged sociopath.
Republican as well as Democratic members of the House and Senate must commit themselves to removing this president.
Those of you represented by Democrats in the House or Senate must get their commitment to remove him, as soon as possible.
Those of you represented by Republicans in the House or Senate must let them know that you will campaign vigorously against them in 2018 unless they commit to removing Trump as well.
It is time to end this disgrace."
