Electing Trump couldn’t have been a worse decision, something Americans realized throughout his presidency, but never as much as today. The fascist president has almost brought the US and its allies on the verge of World War III as he openly challenged Russia to a war.
Trump tweeted on Wednesday,
“Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria. Get ready Russia, because they will be coming, nice and new and “smart!” You shouldn’t be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!”

Wasn’t this the same guy who in 2016 said he would never discuss military action because he would’t want his enemies to know? And yet here we are, like everything else that comes out of his mouth- that was obviously a lie.
Earlier this morning, Moscow’s ambassador to Lebanon, Alexander Zasypkin, said that they would shoot down any US missile that targets Syria and later attack the launch sites as well. This likely set off Trump leading to the terrifying statement he made on Twitter.
Russia is an ally to Bashar al-Assad, the president of Syria, while the US and its allies are supporting rebel groups fighting against Syrian forces in the Middle East. The tension in the region has led to very hostile environment between the two nuclear super-powers and this has resulted in a situation worse than the Cold War.
Trump’s tweets were strongly criticized by sane people on Twitter:
Can someone put him in a diaper and spank him until he calms down?

Right now, the best we can hope is that a war can be avoided till the orange moron’s impeachment. Even if it doesn’t kill all of us, the debt might cause us another recession. Hold on to your hats folk- we are in for a bumpy ride.
