On Friday, President Trump said, “NFL owners who see players disrespecting the flag should say, “Get that son of a bitch off the field right now, he’s fired.” When will someone tell that “son of a bitch Trump” to get out of the White House, he’s fired? There is not enough time or space on this paper to list the countless disrespectful things Trump has said and done since announcing his intent to seek the presidency. At the onset of his presidential campaign, Trump attacked Mexicans and Muslims by calling them rapists and murderers and he even mocked a disabled reporter. How much more damage will Trump be allowed to commit before he’s removed from office? Trump has no clue what it takes to be President of the United States.
There are so many things wrong with the statement he made on Friday. Trump has forgotten the foundation on which America was built: on the backs of immigrants with sweat and calluses. Many have fought and died for African Americans to have the same rights as whites. Whatever laws are used to protect and defend whites should also protect and defend blacks. However, Trump believes that certain laws are only for certain people. Trump believes he is above the law and that he is untouchable and can do whatever he wants with this country and that belief will be the death of his Presidency.
Trump should also take the time to understand the laws of the government he governs. It’s clear that Trump has no idea what the American Constitution stands for. The Constitution of America ensures that all Americans have the same rights. It did not specify that those rights are only for certain people, but rather for all Americans. It is actually illegal to fire someone for expressing their constitutional rights. Yet, Trump boasts proudly and loudly for the NFL owners to violate the players Constitutional rights by firing them.
A President is someone who should protect and unite citizens. Instead, Trump uses divisive rhetoric to exclude certain people. Trump’s moral compass has been stained by his white privilege. Trump is upset that the NFL players are not standing during the National Anthem (which is their Constitutional right), while being supportive of the rights of white supremacist groups. The idea that a President supports the beliefs of any white supremacy group is despicable.
The main intent of white supremacy groups in America is to exterminate all non-white residents. How can anyone support the idea that whites are superior to all other races? That idea is what has this great country in its present state. There are loads of proof of the destruction of America due to the idea that whites are superior. It’s 2017 and America is still trying to find room for all of the immigrants who built this great country – America.
The answer to the question, “Who will tell that son-of-a-bitch Trump he’s fired?” is very simple. It will be Robert Mueller. As the investigation into how big of a part Russia played in the U. S. 2016 Presidential Election continues, Trump is beginning to feel the noose around his neck tighten. In response to this, Trump attacks everyone involved with the investigation, attracting more unwanted attention. The more Trump speaks and questions the process of the investigation, the more he reveals that he in fact knew of Russia’s intent and of the method in which they would interfere with America’s democratic process. The American people should be outraged that a presidential candidate would collude with anyone trying to topple this world revered American institution. Yet Trump participated and won the 2016 Presidential Election.
When will America invoke their Constitutional right and impeach Trump? Trump has proven time and time again that he is a habitual liar and that he is a racist. Trump is attempting to “make America great again” by eradicating all immigrants, people of color, and everyone who supports people of color from America. This is a shame particularly because Trump’s parents were also immigrants.
Each former President of America has attempted to unify the majority of the American people, but Trump has only managed to unify the racists of America and today they make no attempt to hide their faces any more. A decade ago the Ku Klux Klan would have at least covered their faces when committing heinous crimes, but because of Trump’s rhetoric, the members no longer feel the need to cover their faces when committing these crimes. Everything all of the former Presidents worked for is on the verge of disappearing. All of the rights of the American people are on the verge of vanishing right before their eyes if Trump is not impeached.
