Authoritarian Face of the U.S.: Trump Booed In Davos

Views: 348

Donald Trump received an icy reception at the Davos World Economic Forum in Switzerland.

In his typically self-aggrandizing fashion, Trump detailed the positive way that the  press covered him before he became politician, only to segue into yet another attack on the media in his ongoing war with reality.

“It wasn’t until I became a politician that I realized how nasty, how mean, how vicious and how fake the press can be,” Trump told a crowd. In a response, boos emanated from the audience, a clear indictment of Trump’s authoritarian tendencies from European journalists and policy makers.

Trump’s visit to Switzerland coincided with a stunning report from the New York Times that Trump had attempted to fire Special Counsel Mueller last summer. Mueller is overseeing an investigation both into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia as well potential obstruction of justice charges against Trump, the least popular president in modern history.

Should Trump move to fire Mueller – who may very well recommend charges against Trump, resulting in impeachment – many scholars and pundits believe that the country will be thrown into a constitutional crisis.
