PETERS – Trump threatens the very freedoms he claims to protect


The new president has been signing a lot of executive orders. (Screengrab)

IT SEEMS SILLY, even borderline ridiculous that a week ago at this time, we were talking about the definition of art.

peters-colhedSince then, all hell has broken loose.

First, President Trump signed an executive order throwing the United States refugee and immigration system into disarray.

And then the horrific terrorist attack in Quebec that took six lives from their place of ultimate security — their sanctuary.

The ham-fisted incompetence in which Trump rolled out the ban on travel to the United States was utterly laughable.
