(evidence of Trump's serial, habitual criminality)

Web-links or images or paragraphs may be added
(or changed), if/when I re-visit this page.
In October 2019, I was made aware of a video that compares
Here is a link to the video comparing 'Obama-speak' vs. 'Trump-speak' at the Jimmy Kimmel Twitter account.
In a long string of responses under that video, there were many animated GIFs and videos posted.
Many people commented that Trump makes you want to cry and laugh at the same time --- that Trump is absolutely horrifying.
In looking through the reader comments, I found the following video/tweet by Michael Rapaport (an actor-comedian).
The Rapaport video expresses (vigorous) support for the people who chanted 'Lock Him Up' to Trump at an October 2019 World Series baseball game.
Here is a link to the video of support for the 'Lock Him Up' chant (at another Twitter account).
Soon after that 'Lock Him Up chant' incident, I saw a 'talking head' (a so-called 'contributor') on the CNN news channel saying he thought it was probably a bad thing for the Democrats that these people were chanting 'Lock Him Up' at the Donald.
This is a disgustingly cowardly position to take.
If no one says anything to Trump (after all his horrifying behaviors), Trump will think that he is convincing everyone that he is normal and truthful --- when, in fact, he is a serial, habitual criminal.
The paragraphs below point out at least eight (8) types of criminality that Trump has engaged in --- in more than 50 years in New York City --- and then when he got to the Oval office.
Trump has been able to get away with his criminal behavior, while President, with the aid of Senators like
and about 50 other Republican Senators --- and more than 100 Republicans in the House of Representatives --- who do not seem to be concerned about Trump actions that are creating a weaker NATO alliance and a stronger presence of Russia in multiple countries --- including the Ukraine, Syria, Turkey, and even Venezuela.
President George W. Bush used to talk of his concern with an axis of evil threatening the safety and security of the U.S.A. --- an axis which included Iran, Iraq and North Korea.
Now (in 2016-2019), President Trump is effectively forging an ever stronger 'axis of evil' and a more extensive axis --- as he is drawing even more countries into that 'axis' --- resulting in an axis that includes ever-stronger Iran, Syria, Turkey, Russia, North Korea, and China (North Korea's longtime ally and supporter).
This amounts to a stronger 'axis' than the 'axis' of Germany, Italy, and Japan that constituted an extremely strong threat to the U.S.A. during World War II.
It is amazing that Republicans go to great lengths (including amazing amounts of obfuscation and diversionary tactics) to protect President Trump --- while he is creating the 'greatest threat of all time' (GTOAT) to the safety and security of the U.S.A.
I am not completely surprised by this essentially 'treasonous' Republican behavior --- which must have 'classical' Republicans like Ronald Reagan and Ike Eisenhower spinning in their graves.
That is because I saw a 'debate' on CNN (around 2018) in which a controversial subject was being discussed and one of the 'contributors' to the discussion was former Republican Congressman (and former Republican Presidential primary candidate) Rick Santorum.
When Santorum was essentially 'backed into a corner' in the topic being discussed, he came right out and said the Republican position was that whatever it takes to win an election is just fine --- nothing wrong with that.
That makes it quite understandable to me when 'Moscow Mitch' and 'Leningrad Lindsey' continue to make the jaw-dropping statements that they make.
One thing that is extremely galling about Trump is that he hugs the U.S.flag in public appearances --- while he is creating, on a daily basis, the 'greatest threat of all time' to the safety and security of the U.S.A.
List of Trump Crimes :
Here is a quick summary of some of the types of Trump's criminal behavior --- including links to sections below that offer more detail on each of these 'categories' of criminal behavior.
Each of the sections below include 'keyword WEB SEARCH' links to facilitate getting current information on these topics.
In coming months, some of the 'high-lights' with respect to each of these crimes may be added to these sections. In the meantime, you can use 'WEB SEARCH' links in these sections and near the bottom of this page.
He is disposable, folks.
Most Republicans are willing to 'turn their cheek' and ignore the Trump crimes above. They say
I maintain that the economy would have continued on the path it was taking during 8 years of recovery under Obama from the Great Recession that transpired at the end of Bush's second term.
It would have continued if Obama had a 3rd term or if Hillary had been elected --- because they would not have done anything drastic to change the economic environment --- AND because the U.S. economy is WAY, WAY bigger and more powerful than the President.
The economy is more than 100 million working, enterprising Americans.
Trump thinks the country will collapse if he is not around.
Well, he is going to die someday, so that had better not be the case.
And indeed it is not.
The U.S.A. has had more than 40 Presidents and is still going. There is no reason to expect that to change when there is no longer a Donald Trump to 'stir the pot'.
In short, Donald Trump is 'not essential'.
Trump is as 'disposable' as one of those 'disposable wipes'.
Trump may clog the pipes. But a plumber will come along to remove Trump's clog.
Trump stood with Putin in Helsinki and clearly indicated that he had more trust in the intelligence agencies of Russia than in the intelligence agencies of the USA.
Further, he said that he thought Putin's idea of turning over several past U.S. State Department employees to Russia for interrogation by the Russian intelligence agencies was a good idea --- even if it was done on Russian soil.
Trump also went into 'closed door' discussions with Putin, and later would not allow anyone to debrief the U.S. translator that was in the meeting.

Then there is the case of Trump having a telephone conversation with Erdogan of Turkey --- a man who thinks genocide of Armenians and Kurds is OK.
Trump suddenly (overnight) decided to expose the Kurdish fighters to being killed by Turkish troops --- which indeed happened. These are the Kurdish fighters who saved untold numbers of U.S. soldiers lives, as the Kurds took on essentially all the fighting against ISIS.
After this betrayal, Trump says the Kurdish leaders thanked him for sending a message (hastily and weirdly drafted) to Erdogan to urge him to let the Kurds withdraw from the Turkey-Syria border.
Turkey had already started shelling Kurdish areas --- killing civilians as well as Kurdish soldiers.
I dare Trump to show his face in front of any Kurdish soldiers, if he really thinks they are so thankful to him. I guarantee that they will shoot him down like the Turks did to many of their fellow Kurds.
None of our allies --- via NATO agreements or non-NATO agreements --- is going to trust the U.S. to adhere to any agreements.
The 'trust' genie is out of the bottle. It will be nearly impossible to restore it --- especially while Trump is President.
These 'Trump-knee-jerk actions' have horrible implications for the safety and security of the USA.
It would not be surprising to wake up someday and find that Trump has 'unilaterally' withdrawn the USA from the NATO alliance --- just as he has withdrawn the USA from the Iran-nuclear agreement and the Paris climate accords and the TransPacificTrade agreement.
Putin would really love that. In fact, Putin might call him up someday and suggest that he do that. He would quite likely do it.
Would the Republicans in Congress finally 'wake up' if Trump withdrew the US from the NATO alliance???
Or would the Republicans keep putting their re-election prospects ahead of the security of the USA and Europe.
After Trump was on the verge of bankruptcy after failed investments in Atlantic City casinos, the New York City bankers could no longer lend him money and expect it to be paid back.
When Trump found he was on the verge of homelessness, he found his savior in rich Russians (some of whom are probably allied with Putin and Russian intelligence agencies).
He is essentially laundering Russian money by converting that money into real estate.
The Russians are probably over-paying for the real estate in some cases, with the expectation of favors in the future.
It may look like 'just business', but, at the very least, it makes him beholden to Russian money sources --- not a good thing to have 'hanging over the head' of a President of the USA.
We can hope that Trump 'fails' the Russians someday, and they decide to 'show their displeasure'. (A plutonium Big Mac perhaps?)
In 2019, a woman had a book (that she authored) published. In one section of that book, she reported that she had been raped by Donald Trump in a New York City high-end department store.
She and her husband had seen Donald Trump and his wife at events in New York City in the past.
She ran into Trump near the entrance of the store. He accompanied her to a ladies department on an upper floor. When he realized that there was no one on the floor, he shoved her into a dressing room and raped her.
Why am I not surprised?
You can, no doubt, find similar cases by doing a WEB SEARCH on keywords:
Furthermore, while the wife of a friend or acquaintance was in his office, Trump was known to get great pleasure in getting on the speakerphone with the husband and have an 'interesting' conversation --- without the husband knowing his wife was there, listening to the conversation.

Given that most Republicans --- including 'born again' Christian
fundamentalists --- choose to 'give Trump a pass' on
behavior like this, Republicans will be showing an
astounding level of hypocrisy if they continue to claim

At least one book has been published in which the author investigated Trump's business practices with respect to the real estate investments that Trump and his father had in New York City.
Documentation was found that indicated that the Trumps had reported inflated building expenses (for example, for boilers for building heating) in order to take inflated 'write-offs' on their taxes.
Meanwhile, when going to banks for loans, they UNDER-reported their expenses to inflate their net worth and profitability.
FRAUD (Trump University)
Trump was complicit in the founding of 'Trump University' with assurances to students that he would be participating in the real estate education classes.
It turned out this was just another one of the 'fake universities' that over-promise and under-deliver. Student lawsuits were a result.
When Trump was going to take the office of the President of the U.S., his lawyers apparently advised him that it was best to pay the fines (millions of dollars) and put this crime behind him.
Perhaps this experience with the establishment of a 'fake university' was where he found that the word 'fake' would be an excellent word to add to his vocabulary --- to use against others, such as by declaring 'fake news' and 'fake investigations'.
MORE FRAUD (Trump's 'charitable' foundation)
Here is another situation in which Trump was looking for another way to add to his income --- by misusing funds in a Trump 'charitable' foundation.
He used the foundation for 'charitable-to-himself' transactions, such as paying for portrait paintings of himself to be hung in his hotels.
Again, Trump's lawyers apparently advised him that it was best to pay the fines (millions of dollars) and put this crime behind him.
FEDERAL TAXES WASTED
After seeing an impressive military parade in France, Trump wanted a military parade --- in spite of the fact that the U.S. military services have not indulged, in the past, in the wasteful expenses of such displays, which seem to have more to do with ego than with military preparedness and national security.
U.S. military leaders were not calling for this parade. Trump dragged them into it.
It became evident that Trump was going to use this display (televised from Washington D.C.) as an event to promote his re-election for the year 2020.
The parade was seemingly more for Trump's ego --- and his re-election --- than for direct deposit into his pocketbook --- although it amounted to all taxpayers paying for his Republican re-election campaigning.
On the other hand, there is the directing of the military and Secret Service (and other government employees and sevice members and contractors and foreign visitors) to stay in accomodations at Trump hotels --- which IS quite beneficial to his pocketbook.
This is definitely a reason for not electing as President the owner of hotels --- especially an owner who tries to use his influence and power to direct people (including him/her-self) to spend overnights in the hotels.
Concerns about nepotism have been raised about Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner and his daughter Ivanka.
BANK FRAUD (yet another type of fraud)
When Trump was reeling from his impending bankruptcy caused by his failed investments in casinos, Trump was no doubt applying for bank loans.
He and his father were known to inflate their financial position in the past when going to banks for loans.
So it is not outlandish to expect that he was applying for bank loans under false pretenses (using 'faked' documentation), as he had done in the past.
There are, no doubt, employees (esp. executives) of New York banks who know of some of the shenanigans he has tried to 'pull off'.
And Deutsche Bank employees, no doubt, know of even more information that Trump would want suppressed.
The U.S. Congress should be aggressively seeking information from employees of New York banks and Deutsche Bank.
It is well-known that, before Trump became President, he used intimidation --- of witnesses and various other targets of his criminality --- repeatedly.
The most well-known cases were cases where women were accusing him of sexual assault.
He usually tries to avoid doing the threatening personally. He usually has a lawyer (or a goon --- sometimes politely referred to as a 'surrogate') do it for him.
One of the more prominent examples is the case of Trump having one of his lawyers, Michael Cohen --- and, in addition, an unidentified goon --- threaten Stormy Daniels --- over a 'non-disclosure agreement'.

The pattern of trying to get others to do his 'dirty work' for him continued into the White House.
Note that Trump seems to have repeated problems with law enforcement officers (and other government officials) who do not want to do his 'dirty work' for him.
Trump wants other federal officers to take the risk of being the target of adverse public opinion --- or, worse, legal prosecution --- thus allowing him to continue as 'Teflon Trump'.
In other words, Trump wants to continue doing in Washington D.C. what he did for decades in New York City --- to avoid indictments and prosecutions.
You can find more examples by doing WEB SEARCHES on keywords such as:
In November 2019, Trump took his intimidation to 'level eleven', by threatening witnesses, via Twitter, while they were testifying before a House committee that was doing its Constitutional 'oversight' duties.
Mafia figures, personified by Don Corleone, did not have the ability to do that --- 'real time' intimidation via Twitter.
Trump recognizes no limits to his criminal behavior --- and uses the Internet to take his criminality to new heights --- never seen before, and never imagined before --- not by the Founding Fathers and not by 20th Century Congress-people and Justice Department personnel.
In this November 2019 'episode', Trump --- and his Republican 'defensive line' --- keep conflating
According to the U.S. Constitution,
Some citizens of this country are aware of this procedure and can explain it quite clearly.
Trump --- and his Republican 'obfuscators' and 'mis-directors' --- are trying to subvert the Constitution.
That, to me, looks like treason. It should look that way to any concerned citizen of the United States of America.

Most of these links are to the Amazon web site. You can see readers' reviews of the books there.
If you do not have time to read any of these, you may be able to use the readers' reviews to glean highlights of these books.
You often hear jokes about how America's comedians give thanks every night that they were given Donald Trump.
From this list of books (incomplete because I got tired of listing them ... while more are coming out every week in 2019), you can see that America's journalists and novelists (and cartoonists and caricaturists and book illustrators and psychiatrists) also give thanks every night that they were given Donald Trump.

About 40% of Americans condone Trump's behaviors.
Trump is backed by a bunch of 'brown shirt' Senators.
Trump shows how Senators should pucker up to kiss his *ss.
And Trump shows the procedure he demands
--- namely, kiss both the left and right cheeks.
This is how Trump looks as he bad-mouths the
FBI, the CIA, the State Department, and anyone
else his paranoia convinces him that
he must spew hatred toward.
He wants a weak FBI, because he knows all the
crap he did in New York City would not yield good
results for him if the FBI thoroughly investigated.
