Trump loves himself, and he loves to brag. The problem is that everything he brags about was accomplished by someone else. The only things he has to his credit destroying the good President Obama did for the majority of real Americans. Every decision by Trump and his circle of sinners has been a gift to the very rich, and will cause harm to real Americans. Trumpcare, Trump’s budget, and his blueprint to repair our nation’s infrastructure all contain billions of dollars in tax cuts for Trump and 584 other billionaires.
A member of Trump’s circle of sinners, controversial Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos, has rescinded a regulation placed upon ‘for-profit colleges’ which would have made them financially responsible for fraud, and allow students to settle the matter in the court system if necessary. Naturally DeVos offered her reasons for preventing a law which was to have become effective on July 1; as expected they were mostly lies.
On 14 June, DeVos announced the rules would be delayed and rewritten, saying they created “a muddled process that’s unfair to students and schools and puts taxpayers on the hook for significant costs.”
This is nothing more than another effort to place ‘profit before people,’ by allowing the schools to offer false promises without recourse by the students. 18 State Attorney Generals are suing DeVos. They are charging her with “a betrayal of her office’s responsibility and a violation of federal law”.
This administration is part of our new ‘for-profit’ government. Trump selected millionaires and billionaires for his advisory staff and cabinet whose only goal is to increase their personal wealth. In just over five months Trump has created the most corrupt executive branch in history, and the Republican controlled congress refuses to do anything about the situation.
DeVos is a perfect example of a poor decision by Trump. She is in control of our nation’s public schools although she believes that private and charter schools are a better choice. So far she has attempted to cause our system harm while she continues to champion her personal choices.
Trump has caused enormous damage to our nation in five months; how much can he do in four years?
Please re-post; thank you.
