Where do I begin? The mistake which is Donald Trump continues to receive criticism from the American people. If you don’t stay informed, you might think that most of it is about his relationship with Vladimir Putin. You would be mistaken. With an approval rating of 35 percent, he is the most unpopular president in American history after less than three months in office.
First of all there are doubts that he is in charge. From all reports, his days are occupied with watching ‘fake news’ such as FOX Noise, and listening to conspiracy theorist Alex Jones and others. It is also likely that he spends much of his time conducting business, both domestically and internationally. The latter is a violation of federal ethics laws. These same reports indicate that Steve Bannon is running the White House.
The American people are angry that his proposed budget cuts will greatly harm the majority; the working class. These cuts, combined with a plan to reduce taxes for the wealthy will widen the gap in income inequality and increase the number of families living in poverty.
Trump and his spawn are spending millions of taxpayer dollars to support their extravagant lifestyles. The figures are not clear, but we know that Trump’s trips to Mar-a-Lago have cost taxpayers a minimum of 15 million dollars, and Melania’s continued residence in Trump’s golden tower requires nearly one-million dollars each day. Add these to ‘campaign rallies,’ golf trips, a victory tour, and his family’s trips, including a ski trip to Aspen, and the figure rises to tens-of-millions of dollars.
His acts of nepotism by including his son-in-law and daughter on his White House staff are un-precidented. Neither has any experience and must not be allowed to represent the American people.
Trump continues to attempt actions which violate the Constitution. From his Muslim ban to efforts involving voter restriction, he seeks to eliminate the rights of selected groups of Americans.
Most importantly, Trump recently proved that he and his circle of sinners are unable to govern effectively. Trumpcare was a rash and poorly written piece of legislation which would have harmed more than 24 million Americans. By surrounding himself with men who are totally unqualified for the positions they now hold, Trump has proven that he lacks the ability and desire to make intelligent choices and competent decisions.
Trump claims that he has ‘accomplished’ many things since his inauguration. The truth is that he has not accomplished a single positive effort for the American people; he is a destructive and illegitimate president whose plan to re reform America into a nation controlled by white nationalists.
In February, Trump tweeted: “Any negative polls are fake news, just like the CNN, ABC, NBC polls in the election. Sorry, people want border security and extreme vetting.”
Trump’s most ardent supporters should be very disappointed. He has not kept a single campaign promise; promises he never intended to keep.
Obamacare was not ‘repealed and replaced’ on day one. He has not banned Muslims from entering our nation. His ‘great wall’ will never be built.
America has been conned. We have a group of ‘rich, spoiled children’ running our country who have never worked a day in their lives, and will never understand the challenges of the 320 million Americans they are commanded to serve.
Vote, and encourage others to vote. November of 2018 is coming soon.
