Trump lies daily and then lies about lying

As a WWII combat veteran and a patriot, I am deeply concerned about the future of our democracy. What does it take for the press, the Congress and the American people to recognize that the current president of our country is, advertently or inadvertently, a Russian agent?

There is little question that he has deep financial and emotional ties to Putin. The fact that he stands blatantly against the institutions that I fought for and my fellow Americans died to preserve should outrage and appall everyone who calls themselves an American.

This is a self-serving narcissist who lies daily, then lies about lying. This is a man who uses false equivalences to justify the KKK and preaches white supremacy and promotes racism on a daily basis. There should be little doubt that the Russian government and our president are intent upon destroying our federal government and our way of life. His subservient posture and adulation of Putin at their summit is only the latest example of his complicity and treachery.

The definition of treason is “the betrayal of one’s country by waging war against it or by consciously or purposely acting to aid it’s enemies.” This president is without a doubt guilty of that.
