President Donald Trump took his attacks on Democrats over immigration and the border to a whole new dangerous level on Wednesday night when he accused them of committing treason.
Trump has become increasingly unhinged about immigration, threatening to close the border and claiming that “our country is full” while also threatening to level tariffs against Mexico if he doesn’t get his way.
In addition, Trump recently fired Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen in order to appoint someone else who will break even more laws for him and treat migrants even harsher.
Democrats have offered and approved billions of dollars to improve border security, but Trump wants more. He is demanding vast changes in immigration laws that just will not pass Congress. So, he has decided to up the ante by outright accusing Democrats of treason.
I think what the Democrats are doing with the Border is TREASONOUS. Their Open Border mindset is putting our Country at risk. Will not let this happen!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 11, 2019
It should be pointed out that Trump is accusing Democrats of a crime that is punishable by death, which means he appears to be calling for the execution of Democrats who won’t give him what he wants.
That’s yet another sign that Trump is turning America into a dictatorship and even Republicans should be calling him out for it.
Not once during his entire eight years in office did former President Obama accuse Republicans of treason because they obstructed his legislative agenda. Had he done so, you can bet that they would have cried foul and accused him of being a tyrant. But you won’t see Republicans crying foul now because they are nothing more than sycophants for an administration that sees authoritarianism as a virtue instead of the threat to our Constitution that it is.
I mean, it’s not like Democrats had multiple contacts with the Russians during the 2016 campaign or threw our own intelligence community under the bus during a press conference with Russian dictator Vladimir Putin. Democrats are also not carousing with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un or doing everything they can to alienate our allies and ignore our laws.
That’s all Trump, so he had better be careful about who he accuses of treason.
