Susan Collins, Republican Senator from Maine, tweeted a 4th of July greeting to the people of her state. Responses came immediately. They expressed their anger for her support of Trump. The people of Maine are fully aware that Trump’s failure to take immediate action and lead our nation through the coronavirus crisis cost an unnecessary loss of life, and is moving our nation towards a depression.
“The Fourth of July is typically the height of Maine’s busy summer tourism season, but near-empty hotels, inns, B&Bs, and restaurants underscore the devastating effects the pandemic has had on many of our state’s small businesses and jobs.” Susan Collins.
“Maybe if Trump had been convicted in the Senate, it wouldn’t be this bad! Just maybe, Senator!”
“Collins needs to be voted out in November. She takes credit for things she didn’t do. Her words and actions don’t match. She is on the wrong side of many critical votes Voted to suppress evidence in the impeachment of Trump and she voted to confer Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.”
I hope the voters of every state feel the same about any Republican who continues to support the worst president in history.
