Banning muslims from coming into the country.
Protecting and emboldening the KKK and far alt right groups in Charlottesville.
Discrediting media that criticizes him by calling it fake news.
Tweeting out lies about Obama wiretapping him.
Seemingly obstructing justice in the Russian investigation.
Possibly collyding with a foreign power to get elected and advance his private holdings.
Giving a tax hike to the super rich.
Alienating allies.
Seemingly trying to provoke war with North Korea and the Mid East.


I don't know. Maybe Obama is on to something.

Banning muslims from coming into the country.

Wrong, from countries that Obama selected as risks for Terrorism. These countries don't have US embassies or any legit way of vetting. This is a tiny % of the Muslim population world wide.

Protecting and emboldening the KKK and far alt right groups in Charlottesville.

According to the southern poverty law center 0.003% of USA is associated with KKK/white supremacy. He was simply calling out both sides. Lots of fishy stuff happened that day, including calling law enforcement to stand down.

Discrediting media that criticizes him by calling it fake news.

Google , Twitter, Facebook, YouTube have called for conservative views to be shut down, including demonotizing their pages.

Tweeting out lies about Obama wiretapping him.

Look at the video I posted earlier.

Seemingly obstructing justice in the Russian investigation.

Seemingly? He is the president, he is allowed to fire whoever he wants.

Possibly collyding with a foreign power to get elected and advance his private holdings.

Possibly? With no proof?

Giving a tax hike to the super rich.
Alienating allies

Except he just backed Isrieal ?

Seemingly trying to provoke war with North Korea and the Mid East

Having a differing view from past presidents that put us in this current situation?

I admit that I share Obama's concern for the direction of politics currently.  I believe that Russia is trying to undermine our democracy by sowing dissent and polarization.  I further believe that Trump is amplifying this by playing into people's fears.  Take for example that Trump stated a number of times that Hilary Clinton was going to let in 200 million immigrants if elected (clearly not true).  This was coupled with the Russians circulating false stories on social media.  Just one example.

Whether in cahoots or not, our president and Russia are both acting dishonestly in ways that are leading our country to be vulnerable to highly nationalistic political views.  This is the same tactic that Hitler used and probably many other authoritarian leaders through time.  I think it is more of a treat to our country than immigration.

Does this narrative equate to comparing Trump to Hitler?  I guess in some ways but it is not equivalent to saying that I think Trump is going to start a Holocaust and I don't think Obama was either.
