As mentioned above, Trump is intentionally trying to destroy America and everything it stands for:
“His “ethics reform” plan was:
First: I am going to re-institute a 5-year ban on all executive branch officials lobbying the government for 5 years after they leave government service. I am going to ask Congress to pass this ban into law so that it cannot be lifted by executive order.
Second: I am going to ask Congress to institute its own 5-year ban on lobbying by former members of Congress and their staffs.
Third: I am going to expand the definition of lobbyist so we close all the loopholes that former government officials use by labeling themselves consultants and advisors when we all know they are lobbyists…”

Trump drives a deeper wedge between the US and its European allies article from Rachel Maddow on MSNBC. –
More on Trump’s delusions and repercussions from his Iran Nuclear deal disruption and the wedge it’s driving between America and its allies:
“The latest cover of Der Spiegel, a leading German news magazine, is not subtle. It shows an orange hand with an extended middle finger, wearing an angry Donald Trump finger puppet. The text reads, “Goodbye, Europe!”
The American president and his backers frequently insist that, thanks to Trump’s leadership, the United States is held in high regard across the globe. The evidence to the contrary is overwhelming, and when it comes to America’s closest European allies, the Republican has actually created a rift unlike anything the world has seen in modern times. The Washington Post reported overnight:
America’s three closest friends in Europe — Britain, France and Germany — are near-bursting with anger and exasperation at the United States. In a frenzy of meetings and phone calls among them over the past week, their leaders have tried to figure out what they can do about President Trump’s withdrawal from the nuclear agreement with Iran and his plans to impose sanctions on their companies that continue doing business there. […]
Trump’s continuing effort to circumvent global rules has thrown the multilateral order into “real crisis,” German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Friday in a speech to a religious conference…”

The Consequences article from Slate. –
The blow back from our demented delusionist’s rash decisions is starting to appear:
“The big news events in U.S. foreign policy this week—President Donald Trump’s reversal on the trade ban with the Chinese electronics company ZTE, his wavering on “denuclearization” as a demand in the upcoming summit with North Korea, and Israel’s killing of 50 Palestinian protesters while Trump’s emissaries celebrated the opening of the new embassy in Jerusalem—all have one thing in common. They stem from Trump’s unwillingness to ponder the consequences of his actions in countries that he doesn’t understand.
In mid-April, as prelude to trade talks with Chinese officials (and a revving-up of a threatened trade war with China broadly), the White House barred U.S. firms from doing business with ZTE, in part because the company had violated the trade ban with Iran and in part because of cybersecurity concerns with its hardware. Then, Sunday morning, after China (and some private financial analysts) warned that the ban could put ZTE out of business, Trump backpedaled, tweeting that he was working with Chinese President Xi Jinping to get ZTE “back in business, fast,” adding, “Too many jobs in China lost.”
The fate of Chinese workers was an odd concern for a president whose motto is “America First” and who has lashed out at Chinese trade practices with particular ferocity. A more likely reason for Trump’s revised position is that, when the ban was announced, he simply didn’t understand the two-way nature of ZTE’s supply line: It wasn’t just that ZTE depended on American-made components (mainly from Intel and Qualcomm); it was also that those American companies made a lot of money—and employed a lot of American workers—from their business with ZTE.
The complexity of supply lines, worldwide, has caught Trump and his protectionist advisers by surprise. In the two months since his tariffs on steel and aluminum went into effect, 8,200 U.S. firms—most of which use imported foreign metals in their own manufacturing processes—have asked the Commerce Department for exemptions…”

Rudy Giuliani Offers A Head-Spinning New Defense Of Trump article from The Huffington Post. –
The new adventures of dumb and dumber continue as our big Orange turd ball’s delusional dipshittery takes center stage:
“Rudy Giuliani says there’s “nothing illegal” about trying to find compromising information about opponents — even if the source is Russia.
“When I ran against [the Democrats], they were looking for dirt on me every day,” Giuliani told Fox News host Laura Ingraham on Wednesday night, in response to a question about Donald Trump Jr.’s apparent quest to find “dirt” on Hillary Clinton before the 2016 presidential election.
“That’s what you do, maybe you shouldn’t, but you do. Nothing illegal about that,” Giuliani said. “Even if it comes from a Russian or a German or an American, doesn’t matter.”
Giuliani, who joined President Donald Trump’s legal team last month, went on to say that the “main thing” was that the Trump campaign “never used it … they rejected it,” referring to political “dirt.”…”

The new details on that infamous Trump Tower meeting are damning article from The Week. –
Trump’s lies just keep piling up and digging him a deeper hole he’ll never get out of:
“Congress is very eager to wrap up its probe into Russian election meddling. I mean, this isn’t Benghazi, right? No need for seven separate investigations stretching out over years. So in an effort to move toward a conclusion, the Senate Judiciary Committee released 2,500 pages of documents and transcripts from its investigation this week, and the Senate Intelligence Committee explained that the intelligence community’s assessment about Russia’s intentions in meddling in the 2016 election were accurate. “The Russian effort was extensive, sophisticated, and ordered by President Putin himself for the purpose of helping Donald Trump and hurting Hillary Clinton,” said Democrat Mark Warner, the Senate Intelligence Committee’s vice chair.
That conclusion may sound obvious, but it still needs to be said. And the documents provide more detail on the Russian effort and the Trump campaign’s cooperation with it.
Much of the material concerns the infamous June 2016 Trump Tower meeting that included Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner, Paul Manafort, and a group of Russians, and around which so much of the “collusion” discussion has revolved. Proposed by an acquaintance of Don Jr.’s named Rob Goldstone, it was supposed to involve the Russians giving the Trump campaign damaging information on Hillary Clinton. In an email to Don Jr. (with “Russia – Clinton – private and confidential” as the subject line), Goldstone had proposed the meeting promising something extraordinary: Russian billionaire Aras Agalarov, who along with his son Emin is friendly with the Trumps, met with a high-ranking Russian official who “offered to provide the Trump campaign with some official documents and information that would incriminate Hillary […] This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr. Trump.”
Don Jr. replied with “if it’s what you say I love it,” and a meeting with the campaign’s top officials was quickly arranged…”
