Trump is just a boor, and it’s clear to everyone. And it seems he has always been like this. Didn’t Americans see that before?

The article is a nice selection of Trump’s words about racial minorities, immigrants, his tenants and even Congresswomen and Barack Obama, but it is just a statement of facts. Ok, now we have them gathered in one place and what? Can somebody do something about that? No. So what to do? Just get frustrated and ashamed, which is, by the way, not a bad thing on the threshold of 2020 elections.

A few considerations on the subject:
- Congresswomen mentioned in the article could lawsuit Trump for the public insult. I don’t know the juridical part of that, but they obviously should undertake something like that.

- Similarly, Barack Obama HAD TO DO the same and not tolerating the clear Trump’s lie about his citizenship. Nobody punishes Trump, so no wonder his boorishness grows.

- All American nation can now be perceived in the world as boors because of Trump’s behaviour — “show me your president, and I’ll tell you who you are”… But the vast majority of Americans are polite and pleasant people (my subjective point of view), which means either Trump doesn’t belong to his position or 2/3 of Americans are bad. The last tenet is a nonsense, so the Americans just made a mistake, having elected Trump in 2016. By the way, the election of Hillary Clinton would be a mistake too.

- Trump splits the nation by his racist etc statements and may really bring a kind of civil war (he mentioned that in his tweets recently) which nobody will win — there are 61.3% of the White (non-Hispanic or Latino) population of the nation’s total as of July 2016, so quantitatively this is almost 50/50 fight. And Trump can (again, my subjective opinion) sacrifice the well-being of the nation to please his political ambitions.

- The civil war is possible in any country if there are enough unhappy and/or stupid people there. Everybody can decide for himself how far (or close) the USA are to the civil war — the current president has around 40% of average presidential approval rating.

- Only Americans can do something about the “Trump problem".

- The “Trump problem" is not the main problem for the US. If the nation will vote for a democrat in 2020, it will not stop the deterioration of the country.
