The government is shutdown. The White House is in chaos; concerned about our troops deserting Syria, and the departure of the only two qualified and sane men in Trump’s administration, John Kelly and Jim “Mad Dog” Mattis. What is your illegitimate president doing about these situations? Nothing. Trump is spending 16 days at his millionaires only club Mar-a-Lago, where he continues to refuse reading the President’s Daily Briefing.
America has many problems and Trump has failed to address one of them. His “wall” is his only concern. Healthcare, sensible immigration reform, our nation’s crumbling infrastructure, affordable education, a rising deficit, the opioid crisis, and a declining economy continue to be serious concerns for most Americans; but not Trump or his hypocritical party.
So, what is a real American President doing just days before Christmas? President Barack Obama is doing his part today, playing Santa Claus and bringing gifts and holiday cheer to children at the Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, D.C. This is what an American president should be, and all true patriots desperately miss his leadership and intelligence.
Think about his now, and on November 3, 2020. This is our country, not theirs.
