The President of the USA Just Told Us He Has No Problem Assassinating Political Opponents
Vladimir has a long history of assassinating and brutalizing people who get in the way of his political ambitions. This week, it seems that there is another victim of Putin’s violence. Vladimir Kura-Murza, a critic of Putin’s, is in a hospital on life support for the second time, suffering the symptoms of poisoning.
“Putin’s a killer,” the interviewer said to Donald Trump.
Trump responded, “There are a lot of killers. We’ve got a lot of killers. What do you think? Our country’s so innocent?”
“I respect him,” Trump said of Putin.
Americans need to sit with this for a moment.
When Donald Trump talks like this, he isn’t being a maverick. He isn’t defying establishment expectations. He isn’t just talking off the top of his head. He isn’t executing a brilliant negotiating maneuver.
This isn’t the first time Donald Trump has said that he plans to conduct assassinations as President of the United States. In the past, Trump has even said he will assassinate children. In his first military action, Trump actually did kill an 8 year-old American girl in Yemen.
We have seen in the first two weeks of Donald Trump’s presidency that Trump really does mean what he says. Those optimists who assured us that Trump wasn’t being literal when he said awful things have turned out to be just plain wrong.
So, now that President Donald Trump is saying, in a nationally televised interview, that he doesn’t think that the assassination of political foes by national leaders is anything to worry about, and is in fact worthy of respect, Americans need to pay attention.
Assassination is against the law. It is a tactic used by authoritarian dictators.
Take him at his word.
