Be wary of Trump’s real motivations

Be wary of Trump’s real motivations

The Donald’s crocodile tears and ghost-written speech prior to his missile strike in Syria are suspect. Trump didn’t react to the slaughter of “babies, little babies” in Aleppo. He also proposes cuts to the programs which would provide aid to these very same Syrian refugees.
Trump was perfectly willing to replace the Affordable Care Act with a bill which would have cut maternity and pediatric care. I guess it’s acceptable for American babies to die from lack of health care coverage.
While Syria is indeed a humanitarian crisis, Trump’s abrupt change is inconsistent with his consistent lack of empathy and malfunctioning moral compass. 
The timing of Comrade Trump’s Syria bombing ploy is a transparent effort to deflect the focus from Russia’s interference with our election. Of course, the GOP will certainly protect Trump and his “politburo” as long as possible from indictment and prosecution for involvement with the Russians in order to foster their far-right agenda. 
When will his base be enlightened and recognize how this manipulative sociopath only wants to maintain power in order to enrich himself and his family? Trump will do anything to deflect negative press, including starting a war. Be wary of Trump’s faux empathy and don’t ignore his heartless agenda. Continued support for Trump places our country in grave peril.
