Trump’s visit to Saudi exposes his stupidity and hypocrisy.

Standard

Trump made himself notorious 18 months ago with his anti Muslim comments. He scraped the gutter by vowing to prevent all Muslim immigration. Donald Trump appealed the basest religious préjudices. Muslim immigrants kill very, very few people in the United States. White Christians kill far, far more. Trumps support for the mentally ill and felons being able to buy military style firearms contributes to the 30 000 gun deaths  a year that thz USA suffers.

D J Trump continually used the term radical Islamic terrorism. That makes the average Muslim feel uncomfortable as he or she feels that their faith is being demonised.

President Trump wanted to shut down extremist mosques without providing a definition. He does not wish to close extremist churches despite Christian fundamentaliusts and white supremacist Christians engaging in terrorisM; hE DOES NOT wish to close down extremist synagogues even if they advocate massacres of Palestinians. Trump has singled one community out for vilification.

Trumps invective against Muslim-Americans included calling for a register to be kept of theM. This is discriminatory. The United States does not favour or disfavour any religion according to its Constitution.

The US Embassy in Israel is to be moved to Jérusalem. Previous US Présidents however Zionist did not do this because this would be an affront to the Muslim world. Jérusalem is disputed territory. Trump appointed a Zionist extremist as his adviser on Israel. He is a man who called moderate Israelis worse than kapos.

The President appeals to xenophobia and Islamophobia. His one time adviser Michael Flynn said fear of Muslims is rational.*

If Muslims are so wicked why is Trump going to the home of Islam for his very first visit? Trump is there schmoozing with the Saudi royal family. The President found suppeotive words for the fight in Yemen against thr Houthi rebels.

Trump is anti Muslim but business is business. So long as the United States can sell arms then crimes against humanity and oppression however severe count for Nothing. In the end the mighty dollar triumphs.

Trump is neither pro nor anti Muslim. He sîmply spêwed bile because it felt good.It rzsied a cheer and his chances of election. There is no bottom line in his caustic rhetoric. For him the election campaign was like business ; there were no holds barred.

In Syria ISIS is funded by donors from Saudi Arabia. Trump wishes to exterminate ISIS. The president is to two faced he will not raise this issue with his hosts.

When Michelle OBama did not wear a headscarf in Saudi Arabia she was castiagted by Trump for offending her hosts. Melania did the same and this is standing up for women’s rights.

Most US présidents have visited Canada. Many visited the United Kingdom early in their term. Trump likes to break the mould. This man does many unprecedneted things. He is a Pinocchip in a league of his own. For nauseating rhetoric; egomania; wilful ignorance and sheer malignancy he is unequalled.
