24 Hours of Donald Trump

White House/ZUMA

Over the last 24 hours Donald Trump has:

  • Accused Jews who support Democrats of being disloyal.
  • Explained that Kashmir is a difficult problem because “You have Hindus and you have the Muslims and I wouldn’t say they get along so great.”
  • Canceled a state visit to Denmark because they declined to discuss the sale of Greenland.
  • Thanked a nutcase conspiracy theorist who said that Israeli Jews “love him like he is the second coming of God.”
  • Told reporters “I am the chosen one” to take on China.
  • Said the prime minister of Denmark was “nasty” about his proposal to buy Greenland and he’s not going to let her talk to him that way.
  • Confirmed his disloyalty remark: “If you vote for a Democrat, you’re being disloyal to the Jewish people and you’re being very disloyal to Israel.”

This is not the behavior of a man in control of his faculties. It’s just not.


Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone.
