Every intelligent American knows that Trump is a liar and a hypocrite. The current shutdown belongs to Trump and Trump alone. He has admitted to others in the past that the ‘wall’ is not that important but appeasing his diminishing fan base is; he’s desperate.
In 2013 Ted Cruz fought for a government shutdown. As a newly elected TEA Party candidate, he was desperate to please his financial supporters, the Koch brothers.
In 2013 Trump appeared on the right-wing propaganda machine, FOX Noise, after the shutdown began. It was estimated that the shutdown would cost taxpayers over 20 billion dollars. FOX’ fake-journalist asked Trump ‘whose fault the shutdown was, and who should be fired. This was Donny Boy’s response.
“Trump: Well, if you say who gets fired, it always has to be the top. I mean, problems start from the top and they have to get solved from the top and the president’s the leader and he’s gotta get everyone in a room and he’s gotta lead. And, he doesn’t do that, he doesn’t like doing that, that’s not his strength. And, that’s why you have this horrible situation going on in Washington. It’s a very, very bad thing and it’s very embarrassing worldwide.”
Trump doesn’t lead, is incapable of negotiating, and is mentally unfit to be our nation’s president. He is right, his decision is proof that he should be fired. He’s also right; his illegitimate presidency is an embarrassment to all real Americans.
In March Democrats offered a deal to Trump. He would have received 25 billion dollars for border security, but he declined. Why? It also mandated support for the “DREAMERS.” Trump’s hatred for Hispanics supersedes his need to satisfy the members of his cult.
Trump is a buffoon; not what America needs as their president. We must have an intelligent man or woman who will represent all of our nation’s 320 million people. We must rid the White House of this egomaniac who is a white supremacist, and unwilling to serve America. He will say anything to retain the support of his basket of deplorables.
