No, no! Thank you!


No, I don't know why he wrote it.  But it comes after two tweets blaming Sessions for not firing Acting FBI director McCabe, which is how he followed his Twitter announcement about military personnel policy.  Which, by the way, makes his Twitter account an official government source.

And the proper follow up to this tweet is:  "Or two Corinthians."*

If this is true:

Specifically, Politico writes that “an internal House Republican fight over transgender troops” threatened to blow up a deal in the House of Representatives that would have provided funds for Trump’s proposed wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

When anti-trans Republicans told Trump that they would hold up funding for the wall unless he barred transgender people from serving in the military, Politico writes that Trump “didn’t hesitate” to announce his opposition to transgender service members.

It tells you all you need to know about how Trump thinks government works.  Did he consult with the Pentagon, discuss the matter with his Secretary of Defense, order a study on the impact of banning transgender persons from military service, even inquire as to how many transgender person now serve, and what effect any policy pronouncement would have on them?

No.  He just went to his phone and told some House Republicans:  okay, I accept your terms.  Now where's my money?

And if it isn't the reason, it's still clear Trump consulted no one in the Pentagon, or in his Cabinet, before making this stupid and egregious decision.  L'etat, c'est moi!  Make it so, Number One!  Engage!

The man thinks he's on a TeeVee show.  The man isn't qualified to oversee a two-car funeral.

*more importantly, why does his tweet link to an Instagram post with this comment?

"John F Kenedy was only the true patriot President of USA sadly he was assassinated by enemy inside Gate for by-passing federal Reserve bank to american bank and preventing Zionist to make nuclear bomb. America know your enemy"
