Earlier today, every single person in Hawaii was absolutely terrified for almost 40 minutes after a mistaken missile threat was announced. While it is currently not known what caused this false alarm, American citizens in Hawaii were panicking and taking the threat as a real event — while the President of the United States leisurely golfed away.
Former Guantanamo Chief Prosecutor Col. Morris Davis reacted to the absolute lack of concern by Trump for the American citizens he’s supposed to be leading, trashing Trump for continuing his golf game as Hawaii freaked out.
The former Pentagon official attacked the undeserving president:
For 38 minutes American citizens in Hawaii braced for a ballistic missile strike … and
@realDonaldTrump continued his round of golf in Florida on his 120th taxpayer funded vacation day in less than a year.”
Civil Defense officials in Hawaii have tried to calm citizens, stating “THIS IS A FALSE ALARM. THERE IS NO INCOMING MISSILE TO HAWAII. I HAVE CONFIRMED WITH OFFICIALS THERE IS NO INCOMING MISSILE.” However, that doesn’t make up for the fact that these people were terrified for their lives, and there was absolutely no leadership at the top on this issue. Once again, Trump has prioritized playing golf over doing his job.
Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI), who witnessed the chaos unfold in Hawaii, also trashed Trump for his ignorance. Condemning Trump’s mishandling of North Korea in the process, she said:
This points to what the people of Hawaii went through, what my family and so many families in Hawaii just went through, it is a true realization they have 15 minutes to find some form of shelter or they are going to be dead. Gone. So this is something that I hope everyone in America heeds to, because this is a threat that’s not only facing Hawaii, but this country. And if they had gone through what our families in Hawaii just went through, they would be angry, like I am.”
“Our leaders have failed us, Donald Trump is not taking this seriously. We have to get rid of nuclear threat from North Korea. We have to achieve peace, not play politics, because this is literally life and death that is at stake for the people of Hawaii and the people of this country.”

This is one of Trump’s biggest f*ck ups yet. Hopefully, now even his supporters will be able to see that Trump isn’t presidential material.
