Could A Desperate Trump Commit Suicide And Take Everyone With Him With Nukes?

Written by Moguldom Staff

When Adolf Hitler was backed into a corner, he decided to commit suicide rather than face the humiliation of defeat and a probable public execution.

There is surprisingly little information written on the possibility that Trump could be put in such a desperate and humiliating position. Faced with Robert Mueller’s investigation as well as a potential financial collapse of the Trump Organization, Trump too could be a powerful world leader who contemplates suicide when backed into a corner.

Hillary Clinton smartly warned Americans about the awesome responsibility a U.S. president with nuclear codes has to decide the fate of humanity.

Experts agree there are no checks and balances in the U.S. government to prevent a U.S. president from launching nukes and starting World War III for any reason.

“In a fit of pique, (if) he decides to do something about Kim Jong Un, there’s actually very little to stop him …. The whole system is built to ensure rapid response if necessary. So there’s very little in the way of controls over exercising a nuclear option, which is pretty damn scary,” said James Clapper, former director of National Intelligence.

Trump’s son, Eric Trump, talked about how his father has to “block out the constant, negative (yet accurate) news coverage of his dismal presidency,” The Root reported.

Eric talked about depression and suicide in a radio interview on the Joe Pags Show:

“If they weren’t talking about you, you wouldn’t be doing something right, and it’s important to keep it in context,” Eric said.

“Otherwise, quite frankly, you’d probably end up killing yourself out of depression,” the 33-year-old businessman continued. “But he’s doing a great job.”

Many people believe Bill Clinton sent missiles into Sudan, killing innocent human beings to distract the public from the Monica Lewinsky scandal.

Coming three days after the president’s unsatisfying apology to the nation, and on the same day as Monica Lewinsky’s return to the grand jury, the U.S. military strikes Thursday in Afghanistan and Sudan have skeptics asking: Are they truly a response to the Kenya-Tanzania bombings of American embassies, or a manufactured crisis to divert public attention from his personal troubles? (LA Times report on Aug. 21, 1998)

Trump is in the middle of the biggest investigation of a U.S. president in history. A lot more is on the line than his presidency or impeachment.

If the Russian investigation is bigger than just campaign meddling and bleeds over into fraud and money laundering by the Trump Organization, the president could face business and personal bankruptcy. His empire will crumble under the weight of debt, declining business from his declining popularity, and the pressure of criminal charges against his family and business partners.

Businesses that rely on dirty or “gray” money generally don’t do well when multiple federal and state agencies are closely scrutinizing their activities.

There has been very little written about the possibility that the Trump Organization is experiencing financial pressure from declining revenues. Trump’s weekend golf trips may be less about relaxing and more about trying to add to the value of his properties.

Despite its pledge to avoid new foreign deals, the Trump Organization is moving forward with expansion plans in the United Arab Emirates, The Atlantic reported.

Undertaking this type of risky business strategy while he is president would only be happening if the business was not doing very well. There is a possibility that Trump has to worry about declining approval ratings, potential criminal prosecution, a humiliating reputational hit, and another business bankruptcy.

If Trump is backed into a corner with all this pressure and no way out, what will he do?

Psychiatrists met earlier this year at Yale University and formed this consensus:

“We have an ethical responsibility to warn the public about Donald Trump’s dangerous mental illness.

Individual comments from the psychiatrists include these:

“Worse than just being a liar or a narcissist, in addition, he is paranoid, delusional and grandiose thinking and he proved that to the country the first day he was president. If Donald Trump really believes he had the largest crowd size in history, that’s delusional,” said Dr. John Gartner, a psychotherapist who advised psychiatric residents at Johns Hopkins University Medical School.

Dr. Bandy Lee, an assistant clinical professor in the Yale Department of Psychiatry, said: “As some prominent psychiatrists have noted, (Trump’s mental health) is the elephant in the room. I think the public is really starting to catch on and widely talk about this now.”

James Gilligan, a psychiatrist and professor at New York University, told the conference he had worked (with) some of the “most dangerous people in society,” including murderers and rapists — and he was convinced by the “dangerousness” of Trump.

“You don’t have to be an expert on dangerousness or spend 50 years studying it like I have in order to know how dangerous this man is.”

Putting everything together, here are some fundamental questions concerned Americans must ask:

  • If he’s backed into a corner with no way out, is Donald Trump capable of committing suicide like Hitler did on April 30, 1945? Yes.
  • Can anyone or anything stop Donald Trump from starting World War III and using nuclear bombs according to the U.S. Constitution? No.
  • Does Donald Trump have a mental illness? Maybe.
  • Is it likely that the Robert Mueller investigation is going to result in a resignation, impeachment, and jail for some? Yes.
  • The only real outs for the American people are impeachment proceedings before it’s too late or passing a Constitutional amendment limiting the power of the president to preemptively use nuclear weapons.

Two nervous U.S. congressman, Sen. Edward Markey (D-Mass.) and Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.), are already working on a bill that would limit Trump’s ability to use nuclear weapons:

Lawmakers introduced a bill in both houses of Congress … that would prevent the president from launching a nuclear first strike without a congressional declaration of war. A policy that was long debated — but never seriously pursued — during the Obama administration has now become anything other than abstract after the election of Donald Trump.

“Nuclear war poses the gravest risk to human survival. Yet, President Trump has suggested that he would consider launching nuclear attacks against terrorists,” Markey said in a statement. “Unfortunately, by maintaining the option of using nuclear weapons first in a conflict, U.S. policy provides him with that power. In a crisis with another nuclear-armed country, this policy drastically increases the risk of unintended nuclear escalation.”

It’s not just the American people who should be concerned that Trump could choose suicide and launch World War III. The human population should be concerned about what a desperate Trump could do if he faces a dead end.

Last week, a notable real estate executive in New York committed suicide and took his wife and daughter with him. He allegedly faced scrutiny for his past real estate dealings:

The inconsolable son of Westchester real estate executive Steven Dym arrived home Monday to the house where his dad just days earlier killed the young man’s sister and mom before turning the shotgun on himself.

The grim homecoming came as new details emerged in Dym’s shady financial dealings — with allegations in one lawsuit alone that he stole $200,000 from buildings he managed.

He also skimmed money on tax bills or bank refinance fees and submitted fake invoices, according to the lawsuit.

Just saying.

    Anybody who believes there is even a slight chance of this occurring needs to get back on their meds.

    Trump is a complete loon, but ridiculous nonsense like this only makes those who oppose him look like lunatics. There’s a faraway chance Trump could use nuclear weapons or do something extremely stupid and dangerous, but commit suicide? Trump? He’s obsessed with himself. I think it highly unlikely. Trump is a con man. All bluster. He lies and exaggerates constantly. He can’t back anything up. He has no plan. No ability to do anything he promises. I think he’ll either finish his term before presumably losing the next election, or he’ll be impeached and resume being a billionaire scumbag as before. I’d rather see him in prison, and I do believe he’s done enough to deserve that, but the system always fails in these situations. Be wary of Trump, but not too afraid. Be afraid of his base. They’ll elect someone worse, or do something that really will get us all killed, with time. The same goes for similar minded people and tyrants around the world.
