Yesterday, Americans were given a perfect example why an unhinged child should not be elected to be the President of the United States.
Speaking at a joint press conference with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, Donald Trump went on an unhinged rant and made a threat that should terrify not only the entire country, but the world.
When Trump was asked what he would do if his proposed North Korean sanctions didn’t work, his response made jaws drop. There was absolutely no reasoning or logic from the president, just that trigger-happy, egotistical impulse that makes him so terrifying. Unable to formulate a diplomatic answer, Trump resorted to being his revolting self and threatened “the world.” He said:
We’ll have to see. If the sanctions don’t work, we’ll have to go Phase Two. Phase Two may be a very rough thing, may be very, very unfortunate for the world.”
WTF?! Does Trump even know what he just said? Once again, Trump is suggesting that he’s considering a military strike on a nation that he has previously threatened with nuclear war.
This is unhinged Trump at his worst. As he’s just had a disastrous week of more bad news on his Russia investigation and is being pummeled for his horrific response to the school shooting in Florida, he’s clearly falling apart. And we all know that when Trump starts feeling scared and backed into a corner, he starts lashing out and acting even more erratically. That’s why this statement is terrifying — and there’s probably more to come.
Trump still doesn’t see that his threats are only going to make things worse for him — and he’s going to drag the whole country into his mess. You can watch Trump make these alarming comments below:
