Earlier this week the United Nations voted to condemn Donald Trump for his reckless decision to unilaterally announce that he was moving the U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. Trump is trying to provoke a war in the Middle East as a distraction from his own criminal scandals, and the entire world knows it. Now Trump is finally tweeting about the United Nations, except this time he seems to be on the UN’s side, even though he’s yelling around about “death.” It’s not going over well.
Here’s what Trump just tweeted: “The United Nations Security Council just voted 15-0 in favor of additional Sanctions on North Korea. The World wants Peace, not Death!” It’s more than a bit, shall we say, odd that Trump suddenly seems to like the United Nations now that it’s condemning Kim Jong-Un. But the real upshot here is that the supposed President of the United States is on social media recklessly yelling around about “Death” for no legitimate reason.
The pushback against Trump’s unprofessional and dangerous tweet began immediately. Bishop Talbert Swan tweeted that Trump’s UN Ambassador “Nikki Haley is a sycophant! Her threatening speech was a joke to the nations with backbone. Everyone cannot be bought and sold for a dollar!” Another respondent flatly declared “Wtf” and then added “This cannot be the tweet of an adult let alone a leader.”
Yet another respondent, whose Twitter username just happens to be Jesus H. Christ, summed it up this way in the wake of Donald Trump’s horrid tweet: “If you’d only admit you cheated to win the WH, called for Congress to vote for new elections and stepped down with your equally crooked VP, we might one day have peace in the world. You are a chaos agent, controlled by Vlad Putin. You imperil the Republic.”
