Trump’s divisive and racist rhetoric is leading our country toward a second “civil” war. His slash and burn rants cut across the roots of the trees of community that have been nurtured for hundreds of years. On international matters, Trump treats long-standing allies as if they were running against him, that is, he spews ignorant blather that confirms every negative stereotype about Americans. When allies turn their backs on us and we are weakened by internal conflict, the man many thought was our savior will be unveiled as the mechanism for our destruction. When our allies no longer respect us, and our serious divisions are ever more obvious, we become vulnerable. What was once a diverse forest of community will be a scorched earth, destroyed by smoldering hate.
