Does Donald Trump Pose An Immediate And Serious Threat To The United States?
Everyone is somebody's child, even Señor Trumpanzee. But that doesn't make them children. In his pathetic attack on the select committee investigating his attempted coup, Trump complained that "It's a very unfair situation for my children. Very, very unfair. It's a disgrace, what's going on. They're using these things to try and get people's minds off how incompetently our country is being run. And they don't care. They'll go after children... They are using whatever powers they have. They couldn't care less. They are vicious people." The children they're questioning:
Donald Trump, Jr.- 44 years old
Ivanka Trump- 40 years old
Eric Trump- 38 years old
The child they're not questioning, the actual child:
Barron Trump- 16 years old
All Trump's older offspring have been implicated in criminal activities and Ivanka Trump was serving as a Senior Advisor to the President while Trump occupied the White House. She hasn't been subpoenaed, just asked to testify voluntarily.
