Donald Trump is a compulsive liar
America needs a change come Nov. 2020
Hope and pray that our republic will continue
President Trump is claiming that China is interfering in the 2020 election and trying to hurt his reelection bid by encouraging race protests, Trump is doing his favorite thing –tweeting--- an article written by a columnist whose claims do not match the US intelligence community's assessment of Beijing's efforts.
These comments and tweets from Trump, and parallel claims that have been made by many of his appointees, playing up the theory that China is meddling to get Biden elected, while downplaying well-founded reports that Russia is trying to help Trump win again, like it did in 2016. Trump is behind in all the polls and he will resort to any and all factions to try and get reelected.
Trump tweeted a Breitbart article quoting author and columnist Gordon Chang, who said the Chinese Communist Party is "trying to make life very difficult" for the President by "fueling" violent Black Lives Matter protests. Like who believes anything that comes out of a Breitbart article, that’s a paper that only write lies.
Trump is falsely claiming---- from what little evidence we have about China's troll-farm activity, with its bots and with all of its others, they seem to be favoring Vice President Biden, trying to make life very difficult for President Trump — as well as fueling the protests, of course," "I think that Beijing has decided that it's voting for the Democratic Party candidate."
Trumps lackeys did not respond to CNN's request for comment regarding the origins of the information he cited. And why should he--- because they are lies and of course Trump and pals just spew false comments and never can back up anything they say. And all of Trumps comments are not what US Intelligence is saying.
But on the other side of the spectrum US Intelligence has proven that have said they have uncovered evidence that Russia is currently interfering in the election to hurt Biden's campaign. Separately, some evidence has already emerged about Moscow's efforts, including Facebook's announcement last week that a troll group that was part of Russia's attempt to affect in the 2016 US presidential election is trying to mark Americans again.
But while the intelligence community has evaluated that China and Iran prefer Trump to lose in November, officials have offered no indication, to date, that either country is acting on that preference in the same way as Russia, according to public statements issued by the intelligence community and sources familiar with the underlying evidence.
We know China dislikes Trump but has primarily engaged in overt efforts like ramping up public criticism of the current administration over non-election-related issues, including its coronavirus response and move to close Beijing's consulate in Houston. I think China can get at Trump better with public remarks than sneaky moves, because they know trump can’t take a poke and will respond like a 2 year old, which makes him look even stupider if that’s possible.
So, the simple difference is between covert interference on one side and public preferences. China is using influence, diplomacy and commentary in press and propaganda organs. Russia is using disinformation, fake accounts, bots, covert funding as part of a secret campaign. This is consistent with Moscow's public criticism of him when he was Vice President for his role in the Obama Administration's policies on Ukraine and its support for the anti-Putin opposition inside Russia," "Some Kremlin-linked actors are also seeking to boost President Trump's candidacy on social media and Russian television."
Trump needs to focus on what China is really doing, and address our National Security concerns, which are there and are important, but Trump is ignoring all what is important to this country and the world.
What we need is a president which will take on China and Russia and get them the hell out of Americas business and government. But then Trump owes his soul to Russia and he is so ignorant on Government matters that he has allowed China and Russia to control him.
Trump is not loyal to America; Trump thinks only of himself and how he can screw someone out of a dollar so it will benefit him, and so far that is what he has done and done it well.
Biden 2020 is the answer—to get America back in good standing with the man who can get Russia and China stopped.
