USA Africa Dialogue Series - Re: NigerianID | TRUMP-LAND: FBI's Comey Nails President Trump on Two Counts (False Tweets and Possible Collusion)


Trump presents a unique psycho-political challenge to American democracy. However, I am pretty confident that America's democracy will survive him. Whether he can survive himself without "pivoting" away from his present path is anothEr, for lurking around the corner is not only this Russian collusion matter, but his tax palava, for which the American system is invariably unforgiving.

We shall see....

Those of us who have lived with similar personalities can vouch that there is no end to drama! Lies, innuendoes, cursing, throwing tantrums, etc will be ongoing until the congress decides to cut it all. With Republicans dominating both the House and Senate, this will not come to end soon! Keep the seat belt on!

On sundays, they go to church and sing alleluia! And go to Africa to "help" the Africans! While here in USA, they enact and supoport policies make sure that the descendants of same Africans that they dehumanized, enslaved and deprived remain subjugated! And of course many Africans, out of ignorance, see them as "godsent"!
