In my opinion, Donald Trump poses a national security threat for many reasons. From his sheer incompetence to his emotional instability and unprecedented insecurities, I could write an entire book based on nothing more than why Trump’s the biggest national security threat this country has faced in decades.
Many of these reasons have been discussed ad nauseam since Trump launched his campaign nearly three years ago.
However, there’s one way this “president” poses a huge national security risk to this country that very few people, if any, have been discussing — what happens when he’s out of office.
Whether he resigns or his term(s) end, at some point Donald Trump’s going to become a “civilian” again, back in full charge of his company and free of the constant scrutiny of the presidency.
That’s a reality that I think should worry everyone.
Trump is not someone with a clean, transparent record of ethical behavior. He’s a shady businessman with multiple bankruptcies and has repeatedly been accused of having links to crime syndicates such as the mafia and other unsavory individuals. He’s a pathological liar who has repeatedly proven that he has absolutely no problem blatantly lying about something in the face of indisputable proof that what he’s saying isn’t true.
Only once he’s out of office, instead of simply being the same lowlife, unethical scumbag he was prior to the 2016 election, he’s going to be a lowlife, unethical scumbag — privy to a whole host of highly-sensitive information about this country, our strategies, military secrets, and a lot more information that could prove to be extremely valuable for him.
What if there comes a time where he’s set up through some shadowy business dealing in the future by someone who wants some sort of information they’re sure he has. They threaten to go public with whatever they have on him… unless he gives them what they want. Is there a soul reading this who doesn’t believe that Trump would say or do anything to save his own ass? Is there a person reading this who doesn’t think Trump’s a crooked enough businessman to use whatever influence he has, as well as information, from his time as “president” for his own financial benefit or to keep details about his personal or financial affairs from going public?
What if his good pal Vladimir Putin comes calling the day after he’s no longer leading this country, offering him a sweetheart of a deal to be involved in some mega hotel in Moscow with the clear implication that he expects some sort of “cooperation” (aka information) from Trump. Are there people out there so gullible that they actually don’t believe that if Trump felt he could leverage that information for his own benefit without getting caught, he would do exactly that?
That is, of course, if he’s not already doing that.
Donald Trump’s such a terrible person that he actually managed to make the horrific mass shooting at a school in Florida into an attack on the FBI over the on-going Russia investigations. That just goes to show you that Trump’s always and only focused on himself — even after 17 people were brutally murdered by a madman with a semi-automatic rifle.
As I’ve said before, the only thing Trump cares about is himself and what he perceives to be in his own best interests.
This is something I think needs to be discussed more often and openly. The fact that even once Trump’s out of office, no matter when that happens, or why, he’s going to remain a huge liability for this country. A self-serving egotistical crook with a history of unethical behavior, shady business deals, and links to people with extremely questionable behavior — who’s going to have much more influence as well as knowledge about the inner workings of our government, our military, and many of our nation’s secrets.
