The wall, the wall, the wall. All Trump is concerned about is his 16th century wall. He has failed to address the many problems facing 320 million Americans every day. And he is willing to continue a government shutdown to appease his basket of deplorables.
Meanwhile, Trump continues to lie. He claimed that past presidents told him that they ‘should have built a wall.’
“This should have been done by all of the presidents that preceded me and they all know it,” Trump said. “Some of them have told me that we should have done it.”
Asked if Clinton told Trump that he should have built a border wall, Clinton spokesman Angel Ureña said, “He did not. In fact, they’ve not talked since the inauguration.”
A spokesman for George W. Bush said that they have not spoken since the inauguration and President Obama said that the only time they talked since January 20, 2017 was a brief exchange at George H.W. Bush’s funeral. What should we think about a man who is incapable of telling the truth once in his pitiful life?
He has forgotten all of his other promises. Healthcare remains in flux. Deaths related to the opioid crisis rose from 58,000 in 2016 to more than 70,000 in 2017. Our nation ranks 14th in education among developed nations. Our infrastructure continues to decay. The ‘swamp’ in Washington is full, so Trump has added a cesspool. His is the most corrupt administration in modern history. Trump is currently under investigation for 17 criminal offenses; his predecessor did not experience a single scandal in eight years. I apologize; it is unfair to compare Trump to a real American president.
This ‘wall’ has been a bad joke since Trump first proposed it in 2016. Border security is important, however there are many ways to accomplish this goal without building a costly and ineffective 16th century wall. This is the 21st century; sadly, Trump has not arrived here yet.
Republicans have become the enemy; November 3, 2020 is nearer than you think.
