Trump “spent the Fourth of July weekend sowing national divide,
ignoring his failings on the coronavirus and vowing
to fight what he branded the ‘new far-left fascism.'”

Dear readers;

President Trump’s July 3rd and 4th addresses to the nation, “signaled even more clearly that he would exploit race and cultural flash points to stoke fear among his base of white supporters in an effort to win re-election,” quoting Annie Karni and Maggie Haberman, The New York Times.

They added, “President Trump spent the Fourth of July weekend sowing national divide, ignoring his failings on the coronavirus and vowing to fight what he branded the ‘new far-left fascism.'”

“He signaled even more clearly that he would exploit race and cultural flash points to stoke fear among his base of white supporters in an effort to win re-election”

The next 4+ months are going to be a brutal assault on the fundamentals of American government. Trump won the 2016 election on a promise of change. America is going to be brought to her feet with a perfect storm of Wave 2 of Coronavirus merging with the annual influenza virus, massive job lay-offs October 1st, a coming Fall thrashing to the economy, and Trump’s attempts to rig the election.

The following key stories last week laid the foundation of what’s ahead, which were from Trump’s created chaos to detract from serious allegations of what veterans are calling a “betrayal” to the Russian bounties report:

+ The president of the Oglala Sioux Tribe, Julian Bear Runner, told MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell that Donald Trump’s visit to Mount Rushmore was a “threat to my people and a threat to the land,” and Donald Trump was not welcome [nor did he ask] to visit Mount Rushmore, as the Great Sioux Nation is the rightful owner of that land due to an 1868 treaty with the United States.
