Trump ‘is a first-degree mass murderer’ and ‘the most successful bio-terrorist’ in history: Famed psychologist

The English edition of Der Spiegel continues with this damningly accurate description of America in the Age of Trump:

Should we be worried about the United States? Is a fundamental shift taking place in a country that is synonymous with deeply rooted democracy? The current chaos on the streets of America isn’t just the product of the country’s economic and societal tensions. The president himself has repeatedly exacerbated those conflicts with his rhetoric.
