You state: " sounded like you said Trump created a new dept the dept of homeland security."

Actually, it did not sound like that at all.


"He created a new department in the Department of Homeland Security specifically to track anyone that says negative things about the president. Inferring, if not directly claiming, that anyone that says anything negative about the president of the United States, aka Donald Trump, is committing treason against America. That companies, or reporters, or anyone that says anything negative about Donald Trump is committing treason against America. This is not a president. This is a dictator."

Try to be more accurate in your understanding before tossing out naive assumptions. If there is one thing Centrists need to do, we need to be as accurate as possible/feasible in assessing reality.

If you prefer to use conjecture, you might prefer joining the Republicans or the Democrats.

That section of the story was based on a recollection. But since you brought it up, I looked it up:
