Rejection of Actions Divisive to the Republic

A house, a nation, a country or a Republic divided, can never stand. Therefore, as United States(US) Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush call for an end to any divisions detrimental to the US Republic, Donald Trump could heed their words and rejection all actions and comments deemed divisive in order to preserve and to protect the American democracy.

In an unprecedented occurrence at two separate locations yesterday, former Presidents Obama and Bush, not naming Trump, both expressed concern as to the direction of the US today.

Speaking at a Democratic campaign event in Newark, New Jersey, President Obama urged Americans to reject the politics of  "division" and "fear", the BBC-News confirmed in a report. In New York City, New York, at a separate event, President Bush, who spoke some two-hours before President Obama did across the Hudson River, criticized "bullying" and "prejudice" in public life.

Obama observed that Americans should "send a message to the world that we are rejecting a politics of division, we are rejecting a politics of fear." He added: "What we can't have is the same old politics of division that we have seen so many times before that dates back centuries...some of the politics we see now, we thought we put that to bed. That's folks looking 50-years back. It's the 21st Century, not the 19th Century..." the BBC-News reported.

Bush said in New York: "Bigotry seems emboldened. Our politics seems more vulnerable to conspiracy theories and outright fabrication...There are signs that the intensity of support for democracy itself has waned." The former President observed that Americans have "seen our discourse degraded by casual cruelty" and  "At times it can seem like the forces pilling us apart are stronger than the forces binding us together...We've seen nationalism distorted into nativism forgetting the dynamism that immigration has always brought to America."

The remarks by the Presidents are clear: divisive actions within the Republic are bad. Will Trump learn from the observations of those who occupied the Oval Office before him? How many more divisions could this Republic withstand? The health of the Republic now rests with Trump and his administration. May God have mercy upon us and may he Bless the United States of America.
