ORLANDO AND TRUMP



Two day after Orlando and today’s Council’s meeting with its politics may seem petty in comparison.

What is local is as important for us as that on the national and international scene. Local politicians who play the race/ethnic card are as dangerous as demagogue  national leaders. These locals become the base for all those that use group fears as a lever to national power.

No one seems to understand that better than Trump, who unlike Clinton’s message of sympathy  seized this tragedy  to not only congratulate himself for his messages of ethnic and religious   bigotry, but also to imply that POTUS was sympathetic to ISIS.

On Fox News Monday trump said;”He doesn't get it or he gets it better than anybody understands," Trump said. "It's one or the other, and neither one is acceptable."
In the same interview he warned that "there's something going on" that explains Obama's refusal to use the phrase "radical Islamic terrorism."

"Well, there are a lot of people that think maybe he doesn't want to get it," Trump told NBC's "TODAY" on Monday while discussing the attack that killed at least 49 people at a gay club in Orlando over the weekend. "A lot of people think maybe he doesn't want to know about it. I happen to think that he just doesn't know what he's doing. But there are many Opeople that think maybe he doesn't want to get it. He doesn't want to see what's really happening

Today Obama forcefully answered Trump on the TV press conference.



Trump the past two days has de-credentialed the Washington Post from his speeches because of the Post’s negative headlines and articles including one that found 70 % of Trumps statements and claims to be false. He would disregard the 1st Amendment’s; “Freedom of Speech”, as well as its right of religious choice.

  1. Clinton is a politician, Trump is not. There is a difference.
