[ASI] Trump is Crashing and Burning

Dear Friend of America’s Survival:

You may have heard that 50 Republican national security officials have issued a letter opposing Trump, saying he would be the “most reckless president in American history.” You can read that letter here. In fact, Obama has been reckless, and deliberately so. But the fact is that Trump is in deep trouble.

This is the latest indication that Trump is going down to a big defeat in November, possibly taking down Republican control of the Senate and House. His achilles heel is national security. Can you believe it? Trump will lose to a documented security risk. The reason is that he is threatening more global conflict by pulling U.S. troops out of Asia and Europe.

The Korean War Memorial features the following words: "Our nation honors her sons and daughters who answered the call to defend a country they never knew and a people they never met.” South Korea is free today because of the incredible sacrifices made by America’s soldiers. Over 55,000 American troops were killed in the conflict.

In a March interview with The New York Times, Trump said South Korea had not contributed enough toward the cost of keeping tens of thousands of American troops in the country. Here is the exchange:

Q: Would you be willing to withdraw U.S. forces from places like Japan and South Korea if they don’t increase their contribution significantly?

A: Yes, I would. I would not do so happily, but I would be willing to do it.

This was great news to North Korea. Our allies are trembling at the idea of a President Trump. What Trump does not recognize is the need for America to remain the leader of the Free World.

Trump didn’t seem to know that Russia had invaded Ukraine. He is willing to pull U.S. troops out of South Korea and Japan.

Then, after a Veteran handed him his Purple Heart, Trump said, “I always wanted to get a Purple Heart. This was much easier.” Trump stayed out of the Vietnam War through five deferments, one for bad feet.

Trump had been considered a friend of veterans, because of his vow to fix the VA. But his attacks on the Gold Star family of the late Captain Humayun Khan have alienated many veterans and military service members. He was an American citizen of Pakistani descent, and an officer in the United States Army. He died fighting off a suicide attack in Iraq.

Defenders of Trump have been attacking the dead soldier’s father. That’s not the issue. The issue was that Trump didn’t have the honesty and integrity to immediately recognize the heroic service of this Pakistani-American. This is precisely the kind of Muslim-American we need and want in America.

Trump blew it, and his hardline defenders don’t recognize it. It has been downhill from there. He cannot recover, in my view. His followers are mostly blind to the reality of his recklessness.

As several people who have soured on Trump keep telling me, it’s almost as if he is determined to make sure that Mrs. Clinton is not hurt by her own scandals. The evidence of Trump being a double-agent keeps piling up. His recent antics have given Hillary a ten point lead in the latest Fox News poll. One poll gives her a lead of 13 points.

So because Trump and his supporters have been so slow to recognize how damaging all of this has been, he will go down to defeat, possibly taking the Republican House and Senate with him. Another President Clinton will take office, backed by a Democratic Senate and House, ushering in a socialist Super State.

The Republican Party may not survive. There will be a Trump wing and a Paul Ryan wing. The Trump wing will continue to believe in him, no matter how many crazy statements he makes. They will buy his hats, wine, and steaks.

By the way, it looks like Ryan will crush his Trumpian opponent in today’s primary election. Ryan may beat him by 60 points. His opponent Paul Nehlen speaks of Speaker Ryan’s “dangerous globalist agenda.” No, it’s Hillary who has a dangerous globalist agenda.

Paul Nehlen is supported by Laura Ingraham, Breitbart, Phyllis Schlafly, and Ann Coulter. They will all have egg on their faces.
