Page Lavender of Huffington Post Reports: "Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump claimed Japan, an ally of the United States, can “sit home and watch Sony television” if the U.S. is ever attacked.
“You know we have a treaty with Japan, where if Japan is attacked, we have to use the full force and might of the United States,” Trump said during an appearance in Iowa on Friday. “If we’re attacked, Japan doesn’t have to do anything. They can sit home and watch Sony television, OK?”
Trump told The New York Times in July that he would judge NATO members’ spending on security before helping them face down a potential invasion. The businessman had previously stated he wants Japan, Germany, Saudi Arabia, South Korea and NATO countries to “pay up.”
“They owe us tremendously, we’re taking care of all those people and what I want them to do is pay up,” he said in June.
Earlier this week, a group of foreign policy experts ― including several Republicans ― denounced what they called the “disgraceful” Trump comments on NATO, along with his call for Russia to find Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s missing emails from her time as U.S. secretary of state. Trump has had one of the worst weeks in modern American politics."
My 2 cents:
Has the Republicon Party's nitwit nominee who has the attention span of an intoxicated gnat ever picked up a book and read a history of World War II? The question more appropriately is has the Republicon presidential nitwit nominee, Donald J. Trump, ever picked up any book and read its entirety? Perhaps, he has, as he has said, read the Bible but refused to quote even one passage from it not even the 23rd Psalm or Christ's Sermon on the Mount because he says it's "too personal." Does he think we are all nitwits?
My guess is the nitwit Republican nominee has NOT read the Bible. Nor has he probably read his second favorite book, his own "The Art of the Deal," which we now know was ghost written by Tony Schwartz most probably because Trump has no writing skills and this man of the restlessness of a five year old with Attention Deficit Disorder could not sit still long enough to write anything. No writing skills, reads nothing, and has the attention span of a drunk gnat are the qualifications this brainless blob wants to take into the White House.
I might suggest he read something on the war in the Pacific during WWII. It means something when a nation wins a massive war. If he read anything about it he would know (1) The US won it (2) the US (the only nation to explode a nuclear bomb) nuked Japan's cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and (3) a requirement for the surrender of Japan was that they possess no standing army except an elementary one (to the US liking) for self defense and that the US occupied Japan giving up Okinowa in 1974 but still retains a large base there.
Does one think the nitwit nominee might guess that our friendly now ally in Asia had a penchant for territorial acquisition back in the day? Does one think he might have learned that the bombing of Pearl Harbor was the Japanese attempt to dismantle the US Pacific fleet so the US could not stop Japan's lust for the invasion of China and other Asian nations within its sphere? Does one think that IF, in fact, Japan acquired nuclear weapons, as Trump thought might be dandy, that Japan just might want pay back against the only nation to have nuked their country?
If this nitwit nominee becomes (God forbid) president duck and cover!
THIS SHOULD CONVINCE YOU TO WORK FOR IF YOU CAN AND VOTE FOR HILLARY RODHAM CLINTON AS THE MOST KNOWLEDGEABLE AND EXPERIENCED CANDIDATE FOR THE PRESIDENCY!
This is a Youtube from a 1989 show that someone sent to me. It is that for which I and those who ally themselves mostly within the diverse Democratic Party are fighting. It is a gorgeous rendition of "What a Wonderful World" featuring some of the nation's most brilliantly talented women.
As I replayed the video embedded within is a small pop up ad (perhaps more than one) to my dismay appears. Simply "X" it out as ironically one may be of the Republicon presidential candidate whose name is so noxious and repellent to me I will not and do not have to mention it here.
Apologies if it appears but know it must be embedded within the link and is OBVIOUSLY not my doing!
Enjoy the Youtube. Then in November vote and if you can work for the ONLY nominee for president who possess superior intellect and a plethora of experience, Hillary Rodham Clinton.
