Donald Trump has angered a lot of people about what he told ABC News:

The President told ABC he'd listen if a foreign government had damaging information about a political opponent -- and wouldn't necessarily report it to the FBI

...That was not the brightest thing to say out loud to ABC News. Why? He is saying that if he could get info illegally from a foreign government, he would take it, and not report it to law enforcement. (FBI) Let's keep it very simple. Donald Trump thinks he is so smart and brilliant that he could get away with obtaining that kind of information. (illegal information) He is so sure of himself..that he could say something like that.

..Now I have observed that over the years there are many honest, brilliant, decent, hard working people in law enforcement. (FBI, Secret Service,United States Marshal Service, local police, military police, etc..the list is endless) A lot of those workers devote their whole lives to catching all types of criminals. For the top leader of the United States to say the above makes those dedicated officers of law very angry. Trump says he would take the information and not report to law enforcement and use it against his opponent. He is saying sure I would take it and..here is HIS HUGE ERORR..".HE WOULDN'T NECESSARILY REPORT IT TO THE FBI."..(law enforcement)

There are many people, tens of thousands, who work in law enforcement and do not like what he said. Those people are offended that the . President could publically say something like that. And some of those workers in law enforcement take that as a challenge to their "integrity" and the integrity of many law enforcement agencies in the U.S.A. The challenge is ..can Donald Trump get away with doing this?..or more important.... Has Donald Trump already tried to get away with breaking laws doing what he just said, not reporting them? .Because of this "challenge" I believe that some leaders in law enforcement will take on Donald Trump and try to prove that .Donald Trump cannot get away with it.

Some leaders in law enforcement will appoint some very sharp and brilliant workers, agents, or cops, (call them what you want ) to show Donald Trump he cannot get away with it. Why? Because those leaders don't want any well known leader to spout out talk like "I can get illegal information, and I can get away with it, and not tell anyone.." The leaders of the FBI, Secret Service, and other agencies throughout government want to prove that this "big mouth" is totally wrong.

Why? That is their job, and that is their life long commitment to catching people who talk like that. Who knows who it will be that will find the info and facts on this loud mouth dope? (D. Trump) But you had better believe that many people in law enforcement take this as a challenge and they will get this loud mouth. That is what they do. These people are not new. They get the crooks plain and simple. That is their job and life long commitment. D Trump does not know who he has challenged. But he will lose. That is a fact. Just the Facts!!

6. He's never cared if it's illegal or not

He's done illegal things most of his life. As long as he gets away with it, he's glad to do it.

10. Agree....Trump doesn't care about what's legal and what's not.

The only thing he cares about is whether or not he will personally benefit.

so the best way to ask for it is to broadcast it on tv. Everyone got the message, the media made sure of it.

3. Yes, he broadcasted it. But it was stupid to do that. Some foreign governments were already

doing this. Saying it out loud like this is really not smart. Not the brightest bulb..3 to 4 watts at most..

5. Democrats need to SHAME Trump and Republicans who are FOR SALE...

And do it every day in speeches, in interviews, to their constituents at home that our Democracy is not open to the highest bidder. Stress the ILLEGALITY of it too.

11. Since he's survived the Mueller report

. . . and thanks to the Senate is essentially untouchable, he is letting loose. There is no limit to his lawlessness now. Should he need a crisis to hold onto power in 2020 and stay out of prison, he will make one.

Will it be allowing his lover Kim Jun-Un to send a nuclear missile into Tokyo or Taiwan or toward Honolulu? Will it be having a fake Iranian gunboat fire at a destoyer? Will it be Venezuela "attacking" a neighbor? Will it be Mexico not being able to halt the increasing number of asylum seekers Trump's fellow drug cartel gangsters (and likely allies) are creating in Central America?

He has his pick of crises to create, any one of which could cause CNN/NBC/ABC/CBS to flip and Americans to rally to him. Then he can round up those of us who he deems disloyal to the war effort.

Who would stop him?

13. This may have been done by him

Because he knows from one of his moles it will soon be exposed about him, and this is how he normalizes something before it gets out . He's done this many times before , and Rudy has done this before too, admit it while declaring there's nothing wrong with it before being exposed. They know some bad stuff is about to come out now. Might also know Jr. is in deep trouble and this is his plan to once again escape justice by denying its something illegal and bad.

14. Agree. But it seems people like Trump have an engrained psychosis....

evidenced by a belief they're above our system of laws and regulations, and law enforcement is only for us underling's troubles or perhaps to protect their private property.

It's like there's an invisible web of inner-connected powerful and ultra-wealthy people that exist in a separate realm from us and Trump sees himself a part of them or even a leader within that group.

As examples: Look at discoveries from the Panama Papers, the lack of justice for the Iraq war, corrupt corporate executives destroying thousands of livelihoods with only a spank on the hand....the list goes on forever. And, those responsible behave just like Trump when confronted with their malfeasance.

In other words, Trump probably says these things and in his mind it's perfectly OK........ .....

and they don't even live here?

You'd think Americans would be up in arms or at the very least he could suffer some kind of consequences.

17. This is how he's operated his entire criminal life and he's always gotten away with it.

Republicans in Congress have apparently decided to abet him so he'll get away with it again unless we win the whole shebang in 2020. I think we can keep the House and I think we can win the White House, but getting rid of Moscow Mitch is just as important as getting rid of Trump. We have to win the Senate. Some of our candidates for POTUS must reconsider running for the Senate.

34. Trump knows what he's doing. I doubt many

Republicans would have any problem with what he said. If anything, he's just solidifying his support. It doesn't matter to him what Democrats think. They never come close to holding him to account. If they did, his poll numbers wouldn't still be where they were when he was inaugurated. He basically has no effective opposition.

Each time he shows us there's a criminal in the White House without any consequences, the deeper we go towards a fascist state.
