Together Republicans and Democrats debunk President Trump’s wiretapping claims

Alternative facts are not working for the Trump administration, but they continue to use them. The egregious accusations coming out of the Trump White House are a significant problem, because around the world people are asking questions about the credibility of the American leadership.
As Trump’s administration hits 60 days in office, there is scandal after scandal, and everyone is starting to ask this question: “Is our President mentally stable?”
White supremacy and superiority is a sickness, which has come to the forefront of American society with the election of President Donald Trump. In America the racial demographics are changing, and there are more people of color and cultural diversity now living in the country. It is no longer possible to make America White Again.
Senate Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Richard Burr (R-NC) and Vice Chairman Mark Warren (D-VA) issued the following joint statement regarding the allegation that Trump Towers was wiretapped. “Based on the information available to us, we see no indications that Trump Tower was the subject of surveillance by any element of the United States government either before or after Election Day 2016.”
The finding by the Senate Intelligence Committee proved that the president is making things up, or maybe he does not understand that his decisions affect his public trust.
“No matter how much we hope and pray that the president will grow into one who respects and understands the Constitution, separation of powers, role of a free press, responsibilities as the leader of the free world, or demonstrates even the most basic regard for the truth, we must now accept that President Trump will never become that man,” stated California Rep. Adam Schiff, the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee.
There is insanity within the Trump administration, and every day there are numerous false and misleading claims coming out of the White House. Trump and his advisors have falsely accused the media of fake news, but it appears that fabrications and alternative facts are coming from them.
Trump is one of the most powerful men in the world, and no one has any idea what he is going to do next. In Trump’s alternative fact universe, he can operate as a moral monster, and his advisors and supporters still trust him.
As a moral monster, Trump is just beginning to show his cruelness and insensitivity. America is split and Trump is only concerned with his agenda, because he knows he is a moving target. The longer he remains in office, the longer the billionaires in his cabinet will continue to steal money and increase their profits.
Intelligence expert Malcolm Nance said, “We have a saying in the military. The stupid shall be punished. This nation voted for stupid, and we are going to get punished because these people have no sense of decorum, no sense of decency, no sense of living up to any of the traditions enacted over 240 years of this great nation.”
Many Americans are asking Trump to apologize to President Obama for smearing his character and making criminal allegations without a thread of evidence. But moral monsters violate the law and use fear and eventually violence to stay in power.
As Trump and his administration continue to be a moving target, the media are not able to focus on any one scandal and must develop courage to challenge their shenanigans. Once the Republican leadership begins to challenge Trump’s lies, the Democrats can begin to work together with them.
Truth is the strongest argument to heal the divisions in America. Many Americans have a problem with Trump’s temperament, his lies and his behavior. Trump’s conduct continues to alienate and embarrass Americans, and it is time to stop pretending, because he is not going to change.
