After six months and 15 days, Trump has given the American people a blueprint for his four years. It’s disjointed and contains many, many changes. What it doesn’t contain are plans to keep his campaign promises or a section where he represents the American people. This blueprint appears to involve only Trump and 584 other billionaires.
The truth is that Trump doesn’t care about 320 million Americans. He cannot and chooses not to understand the needs and desires of the working man and woman. He has lived his life in luxury; enjoying all of the privileges that entails.
When Trump holds his rallies he does not mean a single word that he says. They are merely efforts to receive praise and soothe his fragile ego. Trump is mentally incompetent and every day it is more evident. He is unfit to be the President of the United States.
What he has done is to make tens of millions of Americans long for the days of the Barrack Obama presidency. America had a man with class, dignity, and a superior intellect making decisions based on the needs of the average man and woman. In times of crisis, he remained calm and calculated his actions carefully before any decision was made, and sought the advice of experts in that particular field.
Trump continues to brag about events which are the result of long term actions by a real President. He lacks a single accomplishment which has his name attached to it.
The biggest difference between the two is that Mr. Obama recognized the problems currently facing the American people and those that would arise in the future. He actually tried to do something to improve the quality of life for the majority. Trump ignores the majority. His “healthcare plan,” his budget proposal, and his outline about how to repair our infrastructure all contain huge gifts to himself and the other members of the one-percent.
The bottom line is that Trump is failing, and will continue to do so. Each failure offers the American people additional insight into the quality of his predecessor, and how Mr. Obama will be remembered as one of the greatest presidents in modern history. Only Abraham Lincoln and Franklin Roosevelt faced the challenges Mr. Obama was forced to address from his first day in office. These three men worked hard for their nation and its people and never forgot their purpose and those who elected them. Only President Obama spent any time on a golf course, and that was very infrequent compared to Trump’s lack of a work ethic.
Trump will be remembered as the worst president in history who did nothing for the people, and supported white supremacy, Islamophobia, homophobia, and sexism.
Don’t be fooled by the mainstream media; when Mitch McConnell promised that his party would do nothing while Barrack Obama was in office, it was purely racial.
Please re-post; thank you.
