Lies

According to the Washington Post, as of 9 October, his 993rd day in office, President Trump has made 13,435 false or misleading claims. That’s an average of almost 22 claims a day since the Post last updated its records 65 days before that report.

And Trump coaxed a foreign leader to interfere in the 2020 election. He proposed to profit himself (later withdrew the proposal as a result of protests) by using his estate in Florida as the next G-7 meeting location. He pulled U.S. troops out of Syria to allow Turkey to invade and attack our allies, the Kurds. He refuses to release his tax returns for public review. He continues to profit from foreigners seeking to gain his support by staying in his hotels around the world.

What a disgusting record. When will we say his sins are enough? The impeachment effort is moving through the House. In my view, it can’t achieve results fast enough.

I just learned that the Los Angeles Times is starting a seven-day series on the need to “drive Trump out of office at the ballot box.” On 20 October, the Washington Post lead editorial was titled “Why we should impeach and remove President Donald Trump.”

The fervor is building.
