America Has Lost Its Soul

“He trusts me and I trust him.” Donald Trump speaking about North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.

This comes on the heels of Mr. Trump slandering Canada’s prime minister (publicly calling him a liar) and one of Trump’s top aides saying there was a “special place in hell” for people like Mr. Trudeau.

As for the ruthless Korean dictator, Trump said the dictator was “very open and very honorable.” That’s just a taste of the praise heaped on Kim by Trump.

Of course, if you were born in North Korea, the dictator might look different to you. He rules with an iron fist. People aren’t free to travel and there’s no such thing as freedom of speech.

Many were allowed to starve to death during famines. Many are interned for political purposes and tortured. Executions are used for political purposes. In short, the man is a ruthless dictator who is hostile to every democratic principle embedded within the U.S. Constitution. Yet he’s the man our leader admires and adores. And the leaders of democratic nations receive Trump’s contempt and scorn.

This is the leader you elected, America.

America has lost its soul, and it’s far from certain it will ever be able to reclaim it.

P.S. Meanwhile, North Korea and China played Trump like a fiddle.
