“Donald Trump is destroying his own presidency and stand of America in the world.”

Trump has no one to blame for his endangered presidency but himself.

Trump during campaign appears disciplined & strategic. Those hopes dashed by the lawless, reckless way he has responded to ongoing inquiries against him.Investigation of Trump campaign’s ties to Russia is serious, and becoming more so. 

Everyone is a moon, and has a dark side which he never shows to anybody. He moves like he is always being observed. All human beings are, by their very nature, social actors, then Donald Trump seems to be more so superhuman, in this numero uno sense. 

Washington Republicans never liked or trusted Trump. A large number of generals, especially those in the centrist establishment, have criticized Trump as too friendly to Russia, unpredictable with nuclear weapons, and insufficiently attuned to the importance of America’s strategic allies, among other things. 

Colin Powell reportedly told the Long Island Association Tuesday afternoon that he is supporting Democrat Hillary Clinton in the presidential race.

Colin Powell (A liberal Republican, Powell is well known for his willingness to support liberal or centrist causes) said Donald Trump  “has no sense of shame,” and is “a national disgrace” and “international pariah.” He said that “the whole birther movement was racist” and complained that the media was providing Trump with oxygen to fuel his campaign. He cracked jokes about Trump’s poor standing with women voters.

Powell endorsed Clinton on October 25, 2016, stating it was “because I think she’s qualified, and the other gentleman is not qualified. 

Barbara Bush: NAY

Unlike her husband and elder son, the former first lady has publicly disavowed Trump. “I mean, unbelievable. I don’t know how women can vote for someone who said what he said about Megyn Kelly, it’s terrible,” she told CBS in February. “And we knew what he meant too.” (February 4, 2016)

Bobby Jindal: YEA
The former Louisiana governor, who during his own presidential campaign called Trump a “narcissist” and an “egomaniacal madman,” wrote in a Wall Street Journal column that he’s voting for Trump, “warts and all.” “I think electing Donald Trump would be the second-worst thing we could do this November, better only than electing Hillary Clinton to serve as the third term for the Obama administration’s radical policies,” he said. (May 9, 2016)

Norm Coleman: NAY

The former Minnesota senator wrote in a March 3 column that he will not support the Republican nominee. “I won’t vote for Donald Trump because of who he isn’t. He isn’t a Republican. He isn’t a conservative. He isn’t a truth teller…. I also won’t vote for Donald Trump because of who he is. A bigot. A misogynist. A fraud. A bully.” (July 7, 2016)

Trump is almost untouchable with Congressional Republicans’ support. so long as he passes their agenda and controls his behavior enough not to endanger them or the country.

How Donald Trump endangered his own presidency ??Investigations — and scandal — have swirled around Trump since the start of his administration, but congressional Republicans found it reasonably easy to ignore them. But trump reckless & impulsive respond to the investigation begin by James comey. 

  • First, Trump asked Comey to stop investigating Flynn. “I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go,” he Also said to comey to make public statement that Donald trump is not under any investigation. But comey refuses both request.

  • Then Trump fired Comey over the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign’s contacts with Russia. 

  • In a meeting with Russia’s foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov, and the Russian ambassador to the United States, Sergey Kislyak, Trump bragged, “I just fired the head of the FBI. He was crazy, a real nut job. I faced great pressure because of Russia. That’s taken off.” Notes from that meeting were subsequently leaked to the New York Times, and press secretary Sean Spicer confirmed the account. 

“I never thought I’d have to answer such questions, all the more in the United States of America, with your greatly developed democratic and political system,” he said, a tinge of sarcasm in his voice.

  • As Russian officials under US surveillance, Trump reacted with fury, and accused the Obama administration of wiretapping Trump Towers. There was no evidence for Trump’s claims. 

  • Trump, has stayed in communication with Flynn, telling him to “stay strong” as recently as April. It almost goes without communicating with an adviser who is under investigation. 

Former Trump adviser Carter Page says the congressional committees investigating potential collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign are railroading his reputation, and are ignoring his complaints about the FISA warrant obtained to surveil him.

Obama v/s trump – promises fulfilled in first 100 days 

Obama made a vastly larger number of promises for his first 100 days. According to an April 2009 review of his first hundred days from PolitiFact, Obama made more than 500 promises, kept 27 of them, had another 63 “solidly in the works,” and explicitly broke six of them. Of course, if Obama made 500 promises and clearly kept or “solidly” worked on 90 of them, that’s a lot more than six unfulfilled promises at the 100-days mark. 

The Chicago Tribune went beyond Trump’s campaign “contract” to compile a list of 38 promises for the first 100 days, ruling that he has fulfilled only ten of them. Sure enough, this critique gives Trump no credit for the items he is still working on, even when it is clear his efforts are serious.

Approval ratings: There is no question Obama had much higher approval ratings at the 100-day mark. Trump polls at 39 to 44 percent approval as he approaches the 100-day mark, with a RealClearPolitics polling average of 42 percent approve, 52 percent disapprove. As the media are quick to point out, this is the lowest approval rating of any president ever polled at the 100-days threshold. By contrast, President Obama had approval ratings of around 65 percent at the 100 day-point. 

Former Trump adviser Carter Page says the congressional committees investigating potential collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign are railroading his reputation, and are ignoring his complaints about the FISA warrant obtained to surveil him.

Page also told the Washington Examiner that it makes no sense that he hasn’t testified yet before either the House or Senate Intelligence Committees.

Carter Page has reminded Republicans what they feared a Trump presidency would be like — unconstitutional, unfocused, scandal-plagued, and damaging to both America’s standing in the world and the GOP’s brand at home.

Republicans may soon lose a generation of voters through a combination of the sheer incompetence of Trump and a party rank and file with no ability to control its leader,” warned conservative radio host Erick Erickson.

Sen. John McCain warned that President Trump’s mounting scandals were “reaching Watergate size and scale.” That same night, Carlos Curbelo, a Congress member from Florida, became the first congressional Republican to use the i-word. “Obstruction in the case of Nixon and in the case of Clinton in the late ’90s has been considered an impeachable offense,” he said. Rep. Justin Amash quickly backed him up. Asked whether James Comey’s memo would, if verified, be grounds for impeachment, Amash said it would.
