The primary reason President Obama was able to save our nation’s economy and restore respect and dignity to our country began prior to his inauguration. His transition team had already composed a list of highly qualified men and women to fill positions in his cabinet and advisory staff. This is what a competent and intelligent president-elect has done for decades. This is not what your illegitimate 45th president did, and the American people are paying for that mistake with their lives.
Not a single member of Trump’s current cabinet or his closest advisers is qualified for their positions. To be blunt, ‘they don’t know what the hell they are doing.’
Let’s begin with Trump’s acts of nepotism. Can anyone explain why Ivanka and Jared are on the White House staff? They have no work experience in anything. They are New York socialites and useless for any constructive purpose.
Sadly, they are not the exception in the West Wing, they are the rule. We should not be surprised that although Trump was first warned that there was a possibility of a serious epidemic approaching America in the President’s Daily Brief in November of 2019, and a more serious warning in January of 2020, he and his administration downplayed the level of threat the people of our country might face. Trump golfed, partied at Mar-a-Lago, and held hate rallies.
The truth is that Trump and his circle of sinners refused to believe the coronavirus was a serious problem until mid-March. The time to order supplies necessary to fight Covid-19 had long passed. Today the United States has more cases and more deaths related to the pandemic than any other nation. Over one-million Americans have been diagnosed with Covid-19 and more than 65,000 men, women, and children lost their lives.
Trump and his cult have already begun lying about the orange buffoon’s failure to lead our nation, but it’s not working. His words were recorded when he claimed that the virus would not affect America or that his administration was prepared to fight Covid-19.
Our federal government has failed the American people again and this time lives were lost.
If you voted for Trump, and you have loved ones infected or worse from this pandemic, you must blame yourself. It was clear on November 8, 2016 that this failed businessman was the least qualified presidential candidate in history. Trump is your mistake.
