Trump is the enemy of the human race. His life’s story is a history of insuring that he is the center of his world. No one is more important than “the Donald.” When millions of ignorant Americans elected him on November 8, 2016, intelligent Americans knew that he would be the biggest mistake ever made by some of the American people, and therefore the worst president in our nation’s history.
This story would not need to be told if the unconstitutional Electoral College did not exist. Millions of Americans voted for Hillary Clinton and denounced the orange man. Sadly, the popular vote means nothing in the 21st century. The people no longer elect the president. All elections are ‘rigged.’
The fact is that unless you are a billionaire, or at least a millionaire, Trump is not interested in your future. He has never lived a life based on reality. His pitiful and putrid life has been filled with luxury and privilege; he is self-absorbed.
Trump’s Shutdown will harm not only 800,000 government employees, it will increase the national debt. Trump is already the most expensive illegitimate president in our nation’s history. His failed “tax reform,” tariffs, unconfirmed trade agreements, and government shutdown will add trillions of dollars to the deficit. Today Trump signed and executive order freezing all pay increases for all government employees. This includes the military, which Trump recently lied about, claiming that they had received a 10 percent increase.
Here are the facts Republicans deny. The economy ‘sucks’ for most Americans. If you are not a member of the one-percent your lifestyle is in decline. Economists predict that in just a few years the middle class will be non-existent. Currently there are more than 46 million men, women, and children living in poverty. More than 100 million Americans live in the low-income level. Most are one paycheck from slipping into poverty. Under Trump’s illegitimate presidency our nation is moving into a third-world nation.
Today one-percent of our nation’s people control 90 percent of the wealth. In just a few years that same group will control an estimated 95 percent of the wealth. America will have become a plutocracy and all rights and privileges will begin to disappear. Trump is faithfully fulfilling the orders of his puppet master, Vladimir Putin. Sadly, by the time most Americans find out that this is factual, it will be too late.
The last opportunity for loyal Americans to save their nation will be on November 3, 2020. Without a huge voter turnout, the defeat of all Republicans, and the election of younger men and women who will lead our nation forward, the end of America is inevitable. Let’s take our country back; it belongs to us, not to failed politicians.
