Tweet bomb Nashville rally

[If you want to send a tweet before reading below, click HERE ]

Untold numbers of people are appalled by how President Trump has conducted himself as President, and Congress should adopt a formal resolution of censure of President Trump's conduct.

Complaints about how President Trump has conducted himself as President include these:

1. His refusal to separate adequately from his businesses will improperly affect untold aspects of the governance of the country in the Executive Branch of the Federal government and also in the Legislative Branch. The episode of President Donald Trump's tweeting about Ivanka and Nordstrom is one small example of Executive Branch governance of the country being improperly impacted. President Donald Trump has been adamant that he can and will do whatever he wants regarding his businesses. We do not believe this is true, and we believe that Congress needs to tell President Trump that.

2. President Trump has spoken to the American people with an immense lack of regard for "truth" and "facts." We do not understand why he does this, and it signifies that President Donald Trump does not understand or refuses to understand things that are needed to properly execute the office of President. Congress needs to tell President Donald Trump that.

3. President Donald Trump's insulting, gratuitous, hyperbolic assaults on those who express disagreement are excessive in the extreme and improperly exacerbate divisions in the country. Congress needs to tell President Donald Trump this is not "faithful" execution of the office of President.

4. [added 2/13] Various actions and statements of President Donald Trump and his subordinates are portending that President Donald Trump is going to violate constitutional separation of powers. Congress needs to warn President Donald Trump about this.

5. [added 2/15] Michael Flynn is out because he lost  President Donald Trump's trust. Developments are resulting in President Donald Trump losing the trust of the American people. Congress needs to tell him that.

6. [added 2/20] The House and the Senate need to pass a joint resolution to the effect that it is the sense of Congress that the press is not the enemy of the American people.

7. [added 2/21] The aforesaid resolution should also condemn the surge in anti-Semitic violence and threats.

8. [added 2/22] President Donald Trump's loose words about Sweden were unpresidential and may have caused unnecessary violence in Sweden. He should be censured by Congress for this.

9. [added 2/22] The second round of executive immigration orders are threatening heightened tension and turmoil, potentially disrupting important work Congress is trying to do. Congress ought to step in to provide a better solution for the country's immigration situation.

10. [added 2/23] President Donald Trump's loss of the trust of the American people gets worse related to Russia, his tax returns, the excessive taxpayer monies used to maintain his and his family's personal and business lives, and repeal and replacement of Obamacare.

11. [added 2/26] By not showing up at the White House correspondents dinner, President Donald Trump is hardening his intention for the country to have two "realities," one being the reality as pronounced by President Donald Trump and the other reality being any purported truth and facts that differ from President Donald Trump's reality. Congress needs to tell President Donald Trump that the two realities that he is trying to establish make for great problems in the country's governance of itself, and collective work must be undertaken to try to overcome the dual realities he seems bound and determined to create.

12. [added 2/28] Either President Donald Trump is alarmingly ignorant about health care, or else he has been lying to the American people for months. See Nobody knew.

13. [added 3/4] President Donald Trump's saying that Jeff Sessions should not recuse himself further shows President Donald Trump does not understand about "conflicts of interest," and Congress needs to educate President Donald Trump on this by censuring him. See Sessions recusal.

14. [added 3/4] The Wall Street Journal has reported that Donald Trump Jr. Was Likely Paid at Least $50,000 for Event Held by Hosts Allied With Russia on Syria. This seems like exactly the "pay to play" that President Donald Trump crucified the Clintons about during the election campaign, and Congress should tell President Donald Trump that he and his family do not have a blanket exemption from "conflicts of interest" and "pay to play."
