There is a new hashtag trending on Twitter: #TrumpGenocide. After one user denounced the President’s “democide/genocide” and called out his “crimes against humanity” and “mass murder”, there was an outcry.

Twitter roared with approval.

When it comes to cataloging the abominable acts of the 45th President of the United States, the list is overwhelmingly long.

His sexual misconduct and open misogyny are an obvious choice. Or do we go with his brazen refusal to disclose his taxes? Of course, there is always his forest of tweets that yields endless fruit of offensive, ludicrous, and dangerously misinformed statements to the public.

Here are some of our President’s Worst Crimes to date:

Placing children in cages at the U.S.-Mexico border

In 2018, the Trump Administration began a “zero-tolerance” policy to curb undocumented immigration. This led to many families attempting to cross the border being charged and jailed as criminals. Including asylum-seekers.

Their children could not be prosecuted with any crime and some were placed with foster families or put into care homes. Many were also held in “temporary” holding facilities at the border in appalling conditions.

A recent finding by a non-profit human rights organization said Trump’s treatment of children constitutes “torture.”

Trump-Russia: A story of collusion, deceit, and meddling

The Robert Mueller report found 10 times the President obstructed justice. It also accused Trump of colluding with Russia for help to win the 2016 election.

Trump tried to fire Mueller.

The Trump-Putin relationship is mired in secrecy and scandal. The secret dinner. Trump’s son, Donald Jr, meeting a Russian lawyer who claimed to have “dirt” on Hilary Clinton. Trump’s former national security advisor Michael Flynn lying to the FBI about a presidential candidate Trump meeting the Russian ambassador.

Trump fired James Comey, one of the leaders of the investigation.

More recently, Twitter reminded us:

Trump allowed Russia to put a bounty on American soldiers. As headlines spread around the world about Russia paying to kill American soldiers, the President of the United States dismissed the matter as a “fake news media hoax.”

Trump’s white supremacy

The Trump Administration has openly flouted racism, xenophobia, and a vision of a white, Christian ideal. Trump’s cabinet is nearly entirely white men.

Trump has sided with extreme right-wing groups and makes no pretense of his admiration for xenophobic leaders such as Viktor Orbán of Hungary.

He has called the coronavirus the “Wuhan Flu” and “Kung flu” and deemed the Black Lives Matter movement a “symbol of hate“. This list could go on.

Environmental crimes: Trump’s legacy of damage

Since Trump took office in 2016, he has steadily rolled back the environmental policies put into place by previous administrations. This reversal will have devastating consequences for the climate and environment for years to come.

In June 2017, Trump pulled the United States out of the Paris Climate Agreement. Trump reversed the Clean Power Plan, a legacy of the Obama era that was on track to reduce 32% of carbon emissions by 2030.

The Trump Administration has proposed changes to the Endangered Species Act, focusing negatively on the economic value of an animal. Trump’s sons have also made bad press for their penchant for hunting endangered species.

Here is the full list.

Trump’s treatment of women

The President of the United States has been accused of rape, sexual assault, and sexual harassment — including groping and non-consensual kissing — by at least 25 women.

Trump refers to his female advisors and aides in the White House as “honey” and “darling” and reportedly critiques their appearance. He has made sexually lewd comments about his daughters.

His controversial statements about women have made headlines all around the world. Following his divorce from Ivana Trump in 1992, the President shared some wisdom about the other sex. “You have to treat ’em like shit” Trump said to his friend Philip Johnson. The latter replied: “You’d make a good mafioso.”

Trump’s response: “One of the greatest.”

In 2005, the Washington Post leaked a video. In it Donald Trump spoke about women, and bragged to Billy Bush:

“I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it, you can do anything… grab them by the p*ssy.”

Unfortunately, the list goes on.

President ‘Super Spreader’ vs the coronavirus

Trump’s appalling lack of leadership, coordination, and responsibility during the coronavirus pandemic has led the United States to be the global epicenter of the disease.


Former Secretary of State John Kerry denounced the President’s “reckless” response, which he called a denial of science, experts and facts.

The President used the coronavirus press briefings to gloat about his popularity and deflect blame for the growing crisis.

He touted the benefits of dangerous, unapproved treatments such as hydroxychloroquine and injecting bleach.

Trump downplayed the risk of the coronavirus, assuring the American public the virus would “disappear” like a “miracle.”

The President marginalized scientists and advisors like Dr. Fauci. He urged the reopening of states in the face of dire warnings from health experts about the risk of a resurgence of COVID-19 related deaths.
