Former President Jimmy Carter questioned the legitimacy of Donald Trump's presidency on Friday. Mr. Carter said the president would not be in the White House if not for Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
"The president himself should condemn it, admit that it happened, which I think 16 intelligence agencies have already agreed to say," Carter said at a panel on human rights hosted by the Carter Center in Leesburg, Virginia.)
Trump has disrespected America and the 36,000 who were killed, the 105,000 that were wounded and every Military person who served in the Korean War. He disregards the murder by torture of Otto Warmbier and embraces the Dictator Kim Jun Un.
[A personal note my five generation family who have served (including Korea) and are serving are standing behind the path to defend and protect the USA not a illegitimate usurping wannabe president]
These are excerpts from previous posts in which many find reason to continue to oppose all things Trump and his complicit GOP.

The U.S. military blocked Internet access to an infamous Russian entity seeking to sow discord among Americans during the 2018 midterms, several U.S. officials said, a warning that the Kremlin’s operations against the United States are not cost-free.
Russian continues "Cold War" tactics. Trump denies Russia interference.
The strike on the Internet Research Agency in St. Petersburg, a company underwritten by an oligarch close to President Vladimir Putin, was part of the first offensive cyber campaign against Russia designed to thwart attempts to interfere with a U.S.
A whistleblower has told the House oversight committee that the Trump administration overruled at least 25 security clearance denials made by career government employees, and the committee will subpoena a key official as part of its investigation into the allegations, the committee chairman said Monday.
House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings, D-Md., said in a letter released Monday that the whistleblower, Tricia Newbold — a security specialist in the White House — told members of his committee in an interview that the Trump administration's decisions to overturn clearance denials issued by her office could jeopardize national security and that coming forward marked her "last hope" to "bring the integrity back into" the office.

No relief for farmers loss (PITTSBURGH)
Who will they support in 2020 after trade losses which caused farmers to ask Trump for the storage and flood recovery funds. Trump has promised 19 billion in welfare to farmers to keep them in his base, but the promise does not provide any way the money can be obtained=empty publicity stunt, it also does not cover stored grain loss or current disaster relief from new flooding (Republican 5/24/19 blocked the relief bill in the House).*The bill has passed 6/2019 too late for many family farmers and does not include June flooding in Arkansas,Missouri,or others.
Trump continues jobs overseas
So just how much of Trump's products are made overseas? (does not included all of Ivankas products) Here's the complete list
1. Trump apparel
The Donald J. Trump Collection includes ties, suits, dress shirts, eyeglasses and other accessories. Trump shirts were made in China, Bangladesh, Honduras and Vietnam.
The Clinton campaign has pounced on many of these glaring hypocrisies in many ads in several key swing states.
2. Trump home Items
That's right, you can adorn your home with the Trump label and risk your house either being foreclosed or falling into a sink hole. Trump Home offers a variety of items including chandeliers, mirrors, bedding, table lamps, cabinets, sofas, barstools, cocktail tables and more. Reports show that pretty much all of these items are made in a host of foreign countries, including China and Turkey.
The Clinton campaign has jumped on this as well, pointing to a trademark registration for the Trump Home brand that clearly shows picture frames and other home products that were made in India.
3. Trump hotel item
Trump's chain of luxurious hotels and opulent condos are the crowning achievements of his sprawling empire. When he's not going ballistic on Twitter at 3am like a jealous ex, or railing about how the Republican establishment has hung him out to dry, he's constantly boasting about all of his fabulous hotels.
The only problem is that virtually all of his hotel items are made in China and Taiwan.
4. Trump beverages
Nothing quenches one's thirst quite like having to drink something with the Trump label emblazoned across it. I'm referring of course to Trump Natural Spring Water, which is served at Trump hotels, restaurants and golf clubs. Believe it or not, Trump water comes from New York or Vermont, and is bottled in New York.
However, the same can't be said about the hilariously failed Trump Vodka.
Trump Vodka was manufactured at a distillery in the Netherlands, but the distribution company stopped carrying it in 2010. An Israeli company continued to carry Trump Vodka, although the version sold in Israel is different from the original Trump Vodka. The Trump Vodka produced and sold in Israel is made from ingredients that make it kosher for Passover, which made it a popular beverage around the holidays. However, the Jerusalem Post reported that none of the ingredients were actually kosher.
on Trump’s praise for Robert E. Lee: ‘The president is now glorifying a loser’
April 28 at 10:24 AM
House Majority Whip James E. Clyburn (D-S.C.) on Sunday offered a sharp rejoinder to President Trump’s lauding of Robert E. Lee as a “great general,” noting that Trump “always said that he hated losers.”
“The fact of the matter is, Robert E. Lee was a great tactician,” Clyburn said on ABC News’s “This Week,” then added, “Was not a great person. Robert E. Lee was a slave owner and a brutal slave master. Thankfully, he lost that war. And I find it kind of interesting that the president is now glorifying a loser. He always said that he hated losers. Robert E. Lee was a loser.”
On Saturday, Trump defended his 2017 comment that there were “very fine people on both sides” of the white nationalist rally in Charlottesville. He argued that the media had misinterpreted what he said and that he was talking about “people that went because they felt very strongly about the monument to Robert E. Lee — a great general, whether you like it or not.”
