Is it time for Trump to go?

Forget impeachment. Forget Robert Mueller’s investigation. Forget Russia.

Well, don’t forget them, but put them to the side for a moment. Investigations and impeachments and Senate trials take time, and time is running out. Is it time for the president to go now, and is it up to his fellow Republicans to get him to leave?

On Tuesday, the president of the United States said there were good people marching alongside the Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazis and white supremacists.

Can a president who says good people march with Nazis be a credible man to run the country? Trump has presided for nearly 30 weeks now, and every time we thought there were no more lines for him to cross, he finds a bright red one and leaps over it.

Mr. Bannon’s exit is the latest in a string of high-profile West Wing shake-ups. The embattled chief strategist who helped President Trump win the 2016 election by embracing their shared nationalist impulses, departed the White House yesterday.

Trump appears to be an unguided missile on Twitter, shooting from the hip on a daily basis, seemingly unaware of the consequences of his tweets. He seems to be acting alone, with his own personal agenda and has perhaps forgotten his election pledge which was to make ‘America Great Again’.

He is removing everyone who steps in his way, but is it now time for him to leave the office?

What are your views? Is it time for the president to go? Or is he doing a good job? Should he remain, or is it up to his fellow Republicans to get him to leave? Should he resign and return to Trump Towers?

Is it time for Trump to go?

The only president to do what he said he would do and actually gets things done. When he's sorted out America he needs to come her and sort this country out. Dithering daisy may won't do it.

Obama seemed anti-British in so many of his statements..

I remember his vitriol towards 'British' Petroleum because of the oil leak which was caused by an American contractor.

I remember that he tried to interfere in our EU referendum saying that we would be at the back of the line in seeking a trade deal if we left the EU.

Trump may not be brilliant, but he is not anti-British.

Trump has got the same problem as the UK government, the losers are trying everything to stop him carrying out his election promises.

Just like the crying whinging remainers in the UK, they cannot stand the thought of losing.

Actually there would be more chance of a war if the Clinton woman had been elected.

Would you all prefer he stood back and did nothing about the fat toad Kim. The president is responsible for the protection of the american people and is willing to stand up to the north korean leaders childish threats.

What a odd statement to make dancingcruiser. Trump is only interested in Trump and is certainly not protecting all of his people.

As for his election promises, now he realises the problem Obama had. Bearing in mind that Obama was constantly up against the Democrats who constantly opposed anything he tried to introduce, and even questioned his nationality.

It was a sad day when Obama left, Trump will never fit into his shoes he is too arrogant and egotistical. The country needs a true leader.

Thank you Jeanmark for showing your interest.

Everyone has a right to their own opinion and I certainly would not argue on such a subject, although you have pointed out the same reason for Obama trying to get his policies through, as Trump has.

Incidently Obama is a democrat and was opposed by the Republicans.

My main point here was that the USA and the UK both have the same problem, Opposition parties are opposed to virtually everything they try to do and it is the ordinary decent working people that lose all the time.

He has no idea how to act as the President of the United States of America. He does not think before he speaks and says the most outrageous things. President Obama had class and really tried his best for everyone but was blocked all the way, shame he wanted to do so much good for his fellow man. Yes Trump should go now, before we all get blown to smithereens.

The day Trump was elected and that face was everywhere I felt sick as that is how he effects me ... he is the evil after the good.

America became a decent country when Obama arrived as it seemed to cleanse it then Trump arrived and we are back to square one again fear has arrived ... he is so unpredicable anything can happen. ... we are on the edge again as he thrives on challenges.and ignores others.
There is no humility in his soul nor compassion in his heart .... we have a vain, arrogant, ignorant. ambitious bigot in power of the most powerful nation in the world ... he may cause war and the world is out of balance anyway.

I pray we are spared this man before too long and I am not alone in that wish.

I do feel that at times the media have ganged up on him, but then he brought that on himself. He is so thin skinned that he seems unable to ignore any negative comments, which all leaders are bound to attract. I'm not sure that there are grounds for impeachment yet and at the end of the day he was voted into office by the American people; however, I don't think he has what it takes to be a leader of people. He sacks staff and officials left right and centre (literally) and seems incapable of garnering the support of many other Republicans, let alone the rest of the nation. He contradicts himself frequently and does not even seem to recognise that he has done so. It worries me that we have someone so apparently emotionally unstable in one of the most powerful positions in the world. Thank goodness the American system will not allow him to become a dictator. It will be interesting to see the result of the mid term elections next year.

You cannot run a government like you would run an international firm. As the CEO of a firm especially one you formed and branded there are no people at your level to stand up to you or to whom you have to be diplomatic. In government (right or wrong) diplomacy literally make the international wheels turn smoothly. Trump's loose lips make governing impossible. Hence the GOP should show him the door marked Exit.

I do believe Mr Trump would love to turn his country around but I think the boys in the background won't allow it. Never have and never will.
We can't pretend we don't know what happens to good people prepared to reveal the truth. They are dead.
Mr Trump would absolutely revel in the adulation if he could e.g. 1: Deliver his healthcare, 2: move forward on his anti-terrorism plans.

I hope he can't deliver his health care bill as it will cost more than 20 million people their health care cover and will significantly increase premiums for the elderly, poor and the sick.

It has drawn consistent opposition from some of the most powerful medical and patient advocacy groups, who all say it would be devastating for patients.

This legislation gets rid of the Affordable Care Act's (Obamacare) and jeopardise's future coverage for millions of low-income Americans who have gained health insurance under 'Obamacare's' Medicaid expansion. How is that a good thing?

Jeanmark, I would not normally challenge you on a clinical point, or your views of the NHS. You are, to your great credit, a nurse who served 47 years in the NHS,

However, on this point I must challenge you. Would you provide the source, the prime source for these figures quoted above, please. I need to know the person, or publication and their source which issued these figures.

My point here is I think is yet more Deep State anti-Trump stuff.

Sholem Aleichem in his Tevye the Dairyman short stories, which became Fiddler on the Roof, wrote, bad news arrives so quickly and yet good news, it takes it's time. My translation from the Yiddish, poor but somewhere near correct.

There's so much bad news about Trump I feel the good news is waiting in the wings.

Sorry Lionel, this is gained from various friends who work professionally in health care in the US and who are usually unbiased in the assessment of people in general. In conversations we have had I'm aware at how concerned they are for the future of many of their poorer patients. All have worked in the NHS but have worked in the US for many years. I understand the figures quoted have been in the media when assessing the Health Care Bill. Maybe it is biased.

I'm afraid I was an advocate of 'Obamacare' which did take account of poorer people and their health needs.

I would be surprised if there was good news relating to Trump waiting in the wings, but this is only my opinion. He appears to stand for everything I abhor in a leader. I usually have respect for what you write but I'm afraid if you told me he smelt of roses I would have difficulty in believing it.

Jeanmark, thank you for your reply. I unreservedly accept your attribution.

There's just so much disinformation surrounding Trump I can't believe a man who has built a multi billion dollar property empire is such a klutz. I've said earlier in this thread, we see our Civil Service at work against Brexit, France's Civil Service working against Macron and before him, Hollande. I truly see America's deep state at work against Trump.

Again, thank you for that reply.

He scares the living daylights out of me if he's not careful he is going to start world three and that prospect with the capability of nuclear armament is frightening. He seems to be a law unto himself,will not accept anyone who questions what he does or says and that in itself is a dictatorship,therefore that to my way of thinking makes him dangerous.

I dont think there is much difference between Trump and Kim Jong-Un, both behave like attention seeming children. I think it highly unlikely that North Korea will attack any populated areas but he wants to show his strength by showing he can if he wants to. Remember the USA are the only country to use this weapon against another nation and with Trump in charge it is always likely again. He cannot take criticism always deflecting it as fake news or sacking anyone who goes against him. The Business councils were a good idea but as soon as the other leaders disagreed he disbanded them it all smacks a bit of dictatorship. If he was in charge of a small island nation he would be classed as a dictator fortunately for us he is the President of the USA so his actions can be reined in a little

In blaming Trump we're following the lead of the West's Main Stream Media. What is happening in America is symptomatic of Western politics in this early part of the 21 Century.

Just look at Britain - Remoaners expending every effort to subvert the will of the people. Macron is France's duly elected President. He too is suffering from the MSM as is Merkle.

The MSM takes it's lead from dark forces at work in our Civil Service and the Deep State (same thing) in Washington. Brexit up tipped the applecart as far as the Civil Service concerned. Trump's election, against all odds, sent the entire Washington bureaucracy into a fevered panic. He's not one of the boys! He can't be bought, has no party allegiances and is responsible to no one but the people. A purer form of politics, perhaps? France's well established and highly secretive bureaucracy is already campaigning against Macron behind the scenes, feeding lines to the MSM. They want to change public opinion and eradicate populism. Macron is also an outsider.

It must be clear there is a concerted attempt in Western bureaucracies to stamp on populism. It erodes their control of affairs, it threatens their existence.

Neither the Western Press nor the bureaucracies propping up respective states can be trusted to be honest and truthful.

Personal integrity and truthfulness are sadly lacking these days. Without them both we cannot function as a society. We cannot relate to each other on a personal level without them both.

I think the other problem with Trump is...a bit like Obama....he sends out ridiculous messages to the North Koreans like "you will be met with fire & fury" and then members of his own administration like Bannon who has just gone says to the media that the USA will not go to war over North Korea. The Chinese and Russians seem to think about issues carefully and script them out then release them when they are sure of themselves. Twitter is not the best medium when you are the worlds top politician.

Trump really is a total nutter. When he started his presidency he was tweeting that Ford had better not build factories in Mexico as it was unpatriotic and jobs should be in America. Fair enough. They changed their minds. This week he fired the 2 business groups of respected business leaders he had appointed after most of them resigned after the Charlottesville debacle. Why would he want to support far right fascist groups after the USA in WW2 defeated them and lost some of its bravest and youngest citizens doing so? Now after firing a lot of his own top staff, and tweeting rubbish everyday I am not sure he will be in the job a lot longer. Will he resign? I don't think he will. He will be the last man standing. Will the republican party ask him to go. yes maybe but what if he refuses? Can he be impeached due to the alleged Russia scandal? Maybe but that's going to take a year or so. I think this saga is going to go on and on and on. Its pretty bad for the great USA an amazing and wonderful country and a democratic force for good in the world. The nation is being defined by one bloke who uses twitter but not his brain about what he is thinking or saying. I cannot believe other countries are comfortable with him. Mrs May seems to be ignored by him, Mrs Merkel was insulted by him. I would imagine Russia and China are wary as they are not sure whats happening next and they want stability as we all do. You really could not make all this up. What a great film in a few years......if we are all still here to look back!
