After a week of resignations, surprise decisions by Trump to pull troops out of Syria, the ending of sanctions on a Russian oligarch, and a border wall fight ending in a partial government shutdown, more and more people seem to have reached the end of their patience with the President and are calling for him to resign. #ResignTrump was trending on Twitter today with people from all ends of the political spectrum calling for him to voluntarily leave office, albeit for different reasons.
And there are many reasons to choose from. Some are upset about the border wall, whether because it’s a monument to xenophobia and racism or because he hasn’t built it yet, not to mention the fact that he’s disrupting the entire government because he won’t get the money to build it after he claimed that Mexico would pay for it. Then today he posted a concept of some kind of horrific pointy death wall.
Others are disturbed by James Mattis’ sudden departure and/or the fact that his administration’s turnover rate could rival the local McDonald’s. He also appeared to pose for a photo in which he is signing a blank piece of paper he claimed to be a bill. The stock market’s not looking good. His relationships with Putin and Assad. The constant lies and broken promises. HIs golf habit. Never knowing what he’s talking about. The affairs. Everything that comes out of his mouth. Etc.
so let me get this straight… We are getting out of Syria because the Turkish president wants to go after our allies, the Kurds. The Kurds- the same ethnic group we abandoned in Iraq and were massacred by Saddam? Are NK and Russia our only allies left? #ResignTrump

The ignorance is enormous in @realDonaldTrump who most likely thinks the coyotes referred to at the border are canines. Can we have an educated president please? This imbecile representing the United States is making everyone sick and depressed. #ResignTrump, you're too stupid! https://t.co/Cxd8yXIIpm

Tillerson, Mattis & Kelly all gone. More to follow. We’re totally screwed. #ResignTrump

#ResignTrump If you read his first five tweets, there's at least one lie in them, or it breaks a "promise" he made a few days ago. But he won't resign; when his term is up, his followers will be supporting someone even more backwards.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg is 85 & recovering from cancer surgery.
She voted to block Trump's immigration ban from her hospital bed.

Seriously. It's time for Trump to go. He's undoing everything our country stands for. No decent people can work with him. #ResignTrump

Did you know Putin is celebrating you pulling our troops out of Syria? Did you know Kim said he won’t denuclearize? Did you know there are 17 criminal investigations involving you/your businesses? You might want to pull a Nixon & call for the helicopter. #ResignTrump

Trump’s tweeted 14 times this morning. What kind of lazy useless illegitimate unfit president is this? He isn’t even trying to do the job. He’s having another temper tantrum now because #TrumpResign is trending #1, and he can’t do anything about it. Maybe he should get a clue. 🇺🇸

Whether by coincidence or because someone was inspired after a few minutes on Twitter, an image of Trump below the word “RESIGN” was displayed tonight on the Powell Street train station building in San Francisco.
