The coronavirus has placed the visions of our two presidential candidates in sharp contrast. 

Recent events have accentuated this contrast. The president has contracted the virus but is continuing to fulfill his duties as president. Joe Biden is staying in his basement while arguing for an extensive shutdown of the country. He has disparaged Trump for taking a risk of contracting the virus and for encouraging the reopening of America. Trump has countered that America needs to reopen and that he must accept risks in order to project courage, inspire confidence and exhibit optimism.

Trump has been a national disaster handling the Covid 19 epidemic. Investigative journalist, Bob Woodward who broke open the Watergate scandal, has Trump on tape admitting he purposely lied to the American people knowing how serious the coming pandemic would be. Trump played it down, kind of like the common flu, it would magically go away, anybody that wants a test can get a test, the vaccine will be out very soon, Mexico will pay for the Wall,etc. etc…. he is still lying about it. Certainly not the kind of leader you want when strategizing and fighting a war against an invisible enemy.

Former Trump White House chief of staff, retired Marine Gen. John Kelly, has said that President Trump “is the most flawed person” he’s ever known.

"The depths of his dishonesty is just astounding to me. The dishonesty, the transactional nature of every relationship, though it's more pathetic than anything else. He is the most flawed person I have ever met in my life," Kelly has told friends.

Former Defense Secretary James Mattis’s criticism of the president’s handling of protests following the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis. Trump is the first president in his lifetime “who does not try to unite the American people—does not even pretend to try.”

There is an endless supply of Trump associates and well respected republican leaders who have testified about his morally corrupt behavior. He is a national threat to this Country and our Democracy.

He conned his supporters into believing he is the successful billionaire business man he “played” on his TV show “The Apprentice”. Nothing could be further from the truth. Trump is a financial disaster both personally and as the president of the US. He has been personally losing money like a sieve the past 3 decades. There is not a major US bank in the past 2 decades that would lend him a nickle because his credit rating is so bad. The only major (reported) source of lending he has been able to fund his losing businesses is the corrupt Deutsche Bank... and that is tenuous at best going forward. Records show he owes over 400 million in loans coming due in the next 4 years and probably another 100 million he will owe the IRS from his 2010 audit.

I can’t imagine our national security intelligence community isn’t extremely concerned about what a lying psychopath like Trump may do if he loses the election and his “presidential immunity” allows the full weight of the law into his many investigations of corruption already under way. Where do you think he will be able to get a half a billion dollars as these loans come due? Not his businesses, they have been and continue to hemorrhage massive losses. And all the royalties and endorsements from his TV show have dried up in recent years. The one thing he was good at... "The Apprentice" pretending to be successful.

Russia is a very good possibility... or any of the other adversaries of the US. Half a billion dollars is insignificant to Putin and Trump will have plenty to sell him in sensitive information along with continuing his role as a divisive force in our country. What better way to weaken our Democracy and its Institutions than pitting citizens against citizens. It has been extremely effective so far.

It is time for our country to end this national nightmare. Indeed, choose wisely Nov 3rd.
