Emperor  Donald  J.  Trump
U.S. President/Emperor #45, 2017-2021?

Republican Donald Trump is a fascist and a multiple bankrupt and a racist and a crook and a sexist pig;
the really sad part is that Trump was the best that the Republican Party could come up with to run for President of the U.S.A.
And then a large number of racist, xenophobic, reality-averse dimwits elected the man President!

If Donald Trump was a legitimate official under the U.S. Constitution, the original real estate tycoon Donald J. Trump Page would include
his term as President. But things as they are require a split: this second page is for Emperor Trump and his fascist administration.

“Donald Trump is a unique threat to American democracy. He is unfit for the presidency and cannot be endorsed.
A Trump presidency would be dangerous for the nation and the world.” — Washington Post Editorial Board, 22 July 2016

“Donald Trump won, America lost.” — G.E. Nordell

“Trump [is] a fascist. Not in the sense of an all-purpose bad guy, but in the sense of somebody who sincerely believes that the toxic combination
of strong government and strong corporations should run the nation and the world.” — columnist Michael Kinsley, Dec 2016

“He who establishes his argument by noise and command, shows that his reason is weak.” — essayist Michel De Montaigne [1533-92]

“We made our mistakes back in the XXth century, Lord knows, but we never nominated a man for president who brags about not reading . . . When I envision
a Trump Presidential Library, I see enormous chandeliers and gold carpet and a thousand slot machines. God help us. I mean it. We’re in trouble down here.”
— author & radio personality Garrison Keillor

“So the people have spoken, giving the finger to the Washington Consensus and electing an admitted sexual predator and proven prevaricator
so lacking in impulse control that he spent the early morning hours of one day cyberbullying a beauty pageant contestant he had once
humiliated in person. Strike up 'Hail To The Chief'.”   — journalist Lou Dubose

A  Few  Important  Dates

  • 2011 Jan: Planning ahead, somebody registered the www.impeachTrump.com internet domain, which is now being auctioned for $10,000 or more with a deadline of April 2017.
  • 2016 July: Trump won the Republican Party nomination and chose Indiana Governor Mike Pence for VP.
  • 2016 Nov 8: Trump won the national election with 304 electors to 227, but lost the popular vote to Hillary Clinton by nearly 3 million.
  • 2017 Jan 20: Donald J. Trump was inaugurated as U.S. President/Emperor #45 in Washington, DC.

    2017 First Day
  • Trump is ignoring the Foreign Emoluments Clause of the U.S. Constitution (Article 1, Section 9), which prohibits all government officials - including the President - from taking gifts or money from a foreign government; Trump is also ignoring the Domestic Emoluments Clause of the U.S. Constitution (Article 2, Section 1), which prohibits officers of the Executive Branch - including the President - from taking gifts or money from any federal government agency or agency of any of the states. Thus, Emperor Trump was immediately in violation of his Oath of Office, and lawsuits were filed and petitions begun. The A.C.L.U. filed an F.O.I.A. request to see Trump's tax returns so they can determine any conflicts of interest.
  • Several political organizations launched the Impeach Donald Trump Now petition website, also based on immediate violations of Trump's Oath of Office.
  • Immediately after his inauguration, Donald Trump's White House staff deleted the civil rights, LGBTQ, and climate change sections of the White House website.

    2017 First Week - January 20-28
  • Emperor Trump signed a series of executive orders that: withdraws the U.S. from the Trans-Pacific Partner-ship, a move seen as a win for China (but Beijing isn’t celebrating); reverses abortion-related U.S. policy by banning funds to international health groups; and gives a green light to both Dakota Access and Keystone XL oil pipelines (Trump owns stock in the company that is building both projects).
  • The E.P.A. announced plans to remove the climate change page from its website, based on instructions from the White House; but the resulting public outcry forced cancellation of that plan.
  • The Trump administration ordered the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to cancel sponsorship of a summit to be held on climate change and health, but climate activist and former vice president Al Gore, Jr. is teaming up with the American Public Health Assn. and other organizations to make the event happen.
  • The Trump administration pulled the plug on all Obamacare outreach and advertising in the crucial final days of the 2017 enrollment season. Even ads that were already placed and paid for were pulled.

    2017 Second Week - January 29 to February 4
  • The U.S.D.A. website abruptly purged its animal welfare information; the records, which up to then had been freely available, were used to monitor animal treatment at circuses, scientific labs, breeding facilities, and zoos.
  • Following White House advisor Kellyanne Conway's insistence that 'alternative facts' were a real thing, sales of George Orwell's 1949 novel "Nineteen Eighty-Four" shot up, becoming an international best-seller on Amazon.
  • 2017 Feb 1: Widely-circulatecd draft of a document entitled "Establishing a Government-Wide Initiative to Respect Religious Freedom" was leaked to The Nation Magazine and other investigators. One of many such drafts, all of which seek to make discrimination against minorities legal based on any religious or corporate belief.

    2017 Third Week - February 4-11
  • 2017 Feb 8: The attempt by Sen. Elizabeth Warren to read an anti-Sessions letter by Coretta Scott King from long ago was blocked (but read into the record by Sen. Udall & others); the Senate confirmed Sessions as Attorney General later that day with a standard vote of 52-47.
  • 2017 Feb 9: A three-judge panel at the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a nationwide injunction against Trump’s Immigration Order.
  • 2017 Feb 9: The Senate confirmed Congressman Tom Price of Georgia for Secretary of Health & Human Services by a standard vote of 52-47.

    2017 Fourth Week - February 12-18
  • 2017 Feb 13: Wall Street veteran Steven Mnuchin of California was confirmed in the Senate as Secretary of The Treasury by a standard vote of 53-47.
  • After more reports of anti-labor behaviour, failure to pay taxes for household employees, and of domestic abuse in the 1990s, Andrew Puzder withdrew from his nomination as Secretary of Labor.

    2017 Fifth Week - February 19-25

    2017 Sixth Week - February 26-March 4
  • 2017 Feb 28: Trump spoke to joint session of Congress, with 60 million viewers; Trump was praised by pundits for reading the teleprompter and seldom going off-script.
  • 2017 March 2: Texan Rick Perry was confirmed in the Senate as Secretary of Energy (vote 62-37) and Dr. Ben Carson was confirmed as Secretary of Housing and Urban Development (vote 58-41).

    2017 Seventh Week - March 5-11
