Trump incites violence

Despite a series of terrorist acts in the U.S, aimed at Trump critics, President Donald Trump refuses to acknowledge that the tone of his rhetoric is dividing his country and is a catalyst for such acts. 

Whether it is acknowledging and congratulating a candidate for body slamming a reporter, suggesting that attendees at a rally “rough up” protestors or letting rally attendees whip up in to a frenzy with chants like “lock her up,” he is the leader of a culture and attitude in America that is unhealthy and above all divisive. 

Good leaders will take responsibility for actions that are negative and credit their team for actions that are positive. Trump, in his term of office, is demonstrating the opposite behaviour. 

Sadly, the end result is proving to be, and is likely going to continue to be, violence and potentially on a much more damaging scale if the president does not work to unite the country he leads. So far that has proven to not be the case. 

Time will tell, with mid-terms right around the corner, if Trump will continue to maintain the power base he has today.

Sadly, Oct. 24, 2018 — when pipe bombs were sent to Trump's enemies, including former president Barack Obama — is not a calendar date that will be remembered positively by the many people around the world.
