Let’s face it – the presidency of Donald Trump is not one of power and influence in the sense of making America a better and safer place to live. Rather the presidency of Donald Trump along with his supporters has proven in so many ways how America has regressed to a low point.
Just look at what’s happening in Trump’s presidency. More racial and political division. Unlike what he and his Republicans like to claim, this man has made America more divided over his words, viewpoints, and executive orders than former president Barack Obama ever did. Note: Obama did not divide the country in a way that some would have you believe. The color of Obama’s skin reignited prejudice, racism, and bigotry within the hearts of so many white people who thought they were not racist.
What Trump is attempting to do to America is nothing more than fascism. That’s right; anyone with a bit of intellect should conclude that Trump is all about Trump and nobody else. Trump – a man whose thinking is one-sided is dangerous. He cannot handle criticism or disagreement and has mentioned on more than one occasion that he will destroy the careers of those who oppose him. What’s even more troubling is the fact that his supporters (followers) are clueless to his agenda. On the other hand, maybe they are happy and content being led by a man who is incompetent, uneducated, and uninformed about what America is really about. Oh no, did I say what America is really about – I mean what America should be. Remember, America was birthed due to violence to so-called Christian values that was drowned in white superiority.
Trump’s xenophobic attitude towards Muslims and Mexicans has made America less safe. His lack of understanding on how domestic programs work has crippled and paralyzed the hopes and dreams of many people. Let’s stop fooling ourselves into thinking this man will make America Great Again.
This White House administration has made America a joke. How so? Hearing their rhetoric over issues is embarrassing. From White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer to KellyAnne Conway, all I can say is WOW! Not WOW is a sense a joy and excitement, but WOW with a feeling of sadness and anger. Sadness because I love my country and want to see it prosper and angry because we have individuals like Trump, Bannon, Spicer, and Conway, just to name a few being the face and voice for the entire world to see.
History will record Donald Trump as the 45th President of the United States. However, he shouldn’t be afforded that title. He should be called what many have called him ’46-1.’ Do I have to respect him? Not necessarily because he has done nothing to warrant my respect. Let’s go a step further. Do many of the Republicans in Congress deserve respect for the positions they hold? Absolutely not. Why? Because most of them are racist and could care less about the welfare of the American people, especially minorities. By the way, for those who like to claim the good things Republicans did in the 60’s, here’s my question for you – what have they done for people of color and for minorities lately?
My brothers and sisters, we can no longer remain victims of dumb-down politics of this Trump administration. In a real sense, everyone in his administration needs to be vetted and possibly relieved of their duties. We can’t stop there. Every Republican who are puppets of Trump needs to be voted out. Supporters of Trump along with his crooked and shameful policies only contribute to the humiliating view of the United States. For America to be great, Trump and his administration must get out, Republican puppets must leave, and new and progressive leaders must rise up and take charge.
