“President” Donald Trump seems a bit more unhinged and unwell day by day. His latest tweet about his potential Democratic opponent in 2020 raised eyebrows and many questions about his mental stability. Trump tweeted the following mass of incoherency: “I believe it will be Crazy Bernie Sanders vs. Sleepy Joe Biden as the two finalists to run against maybe the best Economy in the history of our Country (and MANY other great things)! I look forward to facing whoever it may be. May God Rest Their Soul!”
Nobody knows what the heck the ending sentence means about rest their soul. And the “best economy” line has previously been debunked by The Washington Post, which found that many periods, including the late 1990s, surpassed current economic indicators. Trump’s tweet was questioned by many on Twitter.
In addition, on the same day of the tweet, the Mad King issued the second veto of his presidency, rejecting a resolution from Congress to end U.S. military support for the Saudi-led war in Yemen. Trump called it a “dangerous attempt to weaken my constitutional authorities.” But perhaps Trump does not understand the separation of powers and funding responsibilities. His statement left many wondering what authorities he is referring to when he made that statement.
Trump also claimed that signing this resolution would result in the “endangering the lives of American citizens and brave service members, both today and in the future.” Again, nobody knows what Trump meant by any of this in his veto and press release announcing the veto. The joint resolution was a unique use of Congressional power, representing “the first time both chambers have voted to invoke the same war-powers resolution to end U.S. military engagement in a foreign conflict,” according to the Washington Post. We can expect the Mad King to be ever more aberrant in the coming days and weeks.
