Dumb Donald Trump, in his obsession to eradicate the legacy of the Nation’s first Black President, Barack
Obama, has defiled the world leadership role, previously held by US presidents in favor of Vladimir Putin,
President of the Russian Federation.

Because of America’s democratic posture, unwavering leadership, compassion, experienced, intellectual
presidents, the rest of the world assumes that the richest country in the world can comfortably lead them to
new political, economic, and humanitarian heights.

Not so with Donald Trump.

Donald Trump has two objectives in mind in respect to his tenure as president of the United States. Eradicate
the legacy of Barack Hussein Obama and enrich himself, his family and friends.

Trump’s business experience came as a result of his association with underworld mob bosses due to his
connection to the building trades and the casino/hotel business. No one in the city of New York, Atlantic City
NJ, or Las Vegas Nevada does business either in the building trades or the Hotel/casino business without having
to deal with the underworld bosses.

In 1980 Trump had an association with a shady character, Kenny Shapiro who was associated with the Scarfo
crime family of Philadelphia Pa. Shapiro’s partner was Daniel Sullivan, a former truck driver and teamster who
owned a trash hauling business. The two owned a property that Trump was interested in to construct a casino
in Atlantic City NJ. Trump offered them multi-millions for a fifteen-year lease which would have been a
windfall for Shapiro and Sullivan. Trump was so impressed with the negotiation skills of Sullivan that he hired
him as a union negotiator for the Hyatt Regency Hotel in New York City. Subsequently Sullivan acquired a
multi-million-dollar load from Trump’s personal banker at Chase Manhattan bank. Years later Trump said he
didn’t know either Shapiro or Sullivan well. He said he had heard they were tough guys and had heard that
Sullivan was the one who had killed Jimmy Hoffa. This was all revealed during a background check after
Trump applied for a casino license in Atlantic City New Jersey. The NJ Casino Commission disallowed Trump’
s leasing the land from Shapiro and Sullivan and forced him to purchase the land from them instead. In order to
get financing for the casino Trump created an illusion of “construction in progress” for the Board of Directors
of Harrah’s, a subsidiary of Holiday Corp. He hired a crew to start digging around the construction site and
make it look like “the most active construction work site in the history of the world.”  Harrah’s Board was
impressed and agreed to invest $50 million up front and to manage the hotel and casino after construction was
completed.

This is the legacy of Donald Trump.

Lying, creating relationships with shady characters, creating illusions of grandeur to accomplish his goals is par
for the course for Donald Trump.  This is what he knows, this is all he knows and this is what he does best.
Politics and diplomacy (both foreign and domestic) are his weakest suits.
Trump is also obsessed with getting even or even annihilating anyone who crosses him or disagrees with him.

Richard Branson, a British billionaire,  described a “bizarre” meeting with Trump that left him “disturbed and
saddened.” He said Republican nominee invited him over “some years ago” for a one-on-one lunch at his gilded
Manhattan apartment. Soon after sitting down to the meal, Branson said, Trump launched into a vicious tirade,
vowing vengeance on people who’d refused to lend him money during one of his six bankruptcies. “He told me
he was going to spend the rest of his life destroying these five people. Branson said Trump “didn’t speak about
anything else.” “What concerns me most, based upon my personal experiences with Donald Trump, is his
vindictive streak, which could be so dangerous if he got into the White House,” he said. “For somebody who is
running to be the leader of the free world to be so wrapped up in himself, rather than concerned with global
issues, is very worrying.”

Trump’s obsession with Barack Obama stems from two incidents. His inability to declare him a non-American
citizen and his embarrassment at the Correspondents Dinner in Washington DC in 2011.  Trump was so
humiliated by the experience, they say, that it triggered some deep, previously hidden yearning for revenge.
That evening of public abasement by a Black president whom he had tried so hard to discredit, accelerated his
ferocious efforts to gain stature in the political world.

There are absolutely no experiences in Trump’s background that qualifies him to be president of the United
State nor the leader of the free world. His negative campaign tactics bore no resemblance to traditional
campaign practices. Racism, violence, chauvinism, and sexism were the hallmark of his campaign rhetoric. His
sole domestic objective was to destroy Barack Hussein Obama’s legacy taking dead aim at his signature
legislation, “The Affordable Care Act”, better known as “Obama Care”.

Worldwide negativism such as alienating our top trading partners; Mexico and China was his first international
step in the wrong direction. Referring to Mexicans as drug dealers and murderers was the second and banning
Muslims from the US was the third. There were many more international atrocities committed as the world
leaders watched in awe.

Top of the list of international atrocities was the insinuation that NATO was obsolete and should be disbanded.
Vladimir Putin beamed with glee to think that at long last, he and Russia would soon assume the role of world
dominance with freedom to invade and conquer small western European countries.

Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris Accord was the straw that broke the camel’s back. The world was
watching. Putin was excited. NATO members cringed.

It is not known what the relationship between Trump and Putin is but it’s a sure bet it is something that
benefits Trump and his family.

On 28 April 2014, the United States imposed a ban on business transactions within its territory on seven
Russian officials, including Igor Sechin, executive chairman of the Russian state oil company Rosneft, and
seventeen Russian companies.

In December of 2016, Obama expelled Thirty-five “intelligence operatives” Russian diplomats from the US, for
acting in a "manner inconsistent with their diplomatic status. He also announced the closure of two Russian
compounds, in New York and Maryland. The Russian diplomats were given 72 hours to leave US soil.

A dossier with unverified claims about President Donald Trump's ties to Russia contained allegations that Igor
Sechin, the CEO of Rosneft, offered former Trump ally Carter Page and his associates the brokerage of a 19%
($25 billion) stake in the company in exchange for the lifting of US sanctions on Russia.

The dossier says the offer was made when Page was in Moscow giving a speech at the Higher Economic
School. The claim was sourced to "a trusted compatriot and close associate" of Sechin, according to the
dossier's author, former British spy Christopher Steele.

"Sechin's associate said that the Rosneft president was so keen to lift personal and corporate western sanctions
imposed on the company, that he made the offer to Page and his associates” the dossier said. "In return, Page
had expressed interest and confirmed that were Trump elected US president, then sanctions on Russia would
be lifted."

Recently, the Trump administration proposed handing back to Russia the diplomatic compounds, sanctioned
and closed by Barack Obama near New York City and on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. Step 1 in lifting the
sanctions.

The proposed disbanding of NATO, the withdrawal from the Paris accord, disenfranchising 62% of Americans
in favor of his 38% support base, certainly disqualifies Trump from not only the position as President of the
United States but more so as leader of the free world.

US presidents have traditionally been world class leaders. Not of the ilk who professes his wanton to commit
war crimes in pursuit of Iraqi oil.

In a 2016 campaign forum of veterans, Trump suggested that Russian President Vladimir Putin has been a
better leader than President Barack Obama. “I don't happen to like the (Russian) system, but certainly in that
system, he's been a leader. Far more than our president has been a leader."  This is vintage Donald Trump. This
is what he knows, this is all he knows and this is what he does best. Criticize and destroy.

Business Insider recently published its ranking of the 50 most powerful people in the world, a select group
whose decisions affect millions, shake industries, and change nations. To determine the ranking, the study
evaluated more than 100 of the most influential players in business, politics, entertainment, and tech, judging
their influence by economic power, command, newsworthiness, and impact, a subjective measure that
captures how important they are in their respective spheres.

US President Barack Obama, to the chagrin of Donald Trump headlined the list, followed by Chinese President
Xi Jinping, Russian President Vladimir Putin, and German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

America and the world need an intelligent, leader of high moral character, one who is compassionate,
confident, loyal and committed to positive actions not a destructive and envious Mafia Don.
