Trump says Armenia massacres were not genocide, directly contradicting Congress – even Republican members.
So literally attempting to kill every member of an ethnic group is not genocide in Trump's view - of course not - Trump has businesses in Turkey!
There's a certain far right blogger who has Armenian heritage, and she's a big Trump supporter. I wonder how fabulous she feels about her hero announcing this lie and slander against the Armenian people.
My father's first business partner was Armenian, and as a child we had many happy Sunday dinners with his family. Growing up in the Boston area, I've met and been friends with many Americans of Armenian descent. Every one of them big-hearted, family-oriented, decent human beings.
My neighborhood has a memorial to the Armenian massacres, which I often visit on my way home from Downtown Crossing. It's a beautiful, serene sculpture garden that gives everyone who stops and reflects a chance to remember those Armenians who suffered and died in the genocide perpetrated by the Ottoman Empire (present day Turkey).
It's not a secret that Trump and his family have huge business investments in Turkey, and it's not difficult to link Trump's shameful betrayal of the Armenian people and their descendants here in America to those lucrative businesses.
Every time I think Trump cannot sink deeper into the world's sewers of power, he proves to me and the world that there is no bottom to his treachery.
