A Year After Trump’s Election, Is Anything Great Again?

Donald Trump

Some people might think what Trump has done to this country is ‘great.’ For the rest of us, the end of this self-serving sham of an embarrassing presidency can’t come soon enough.

It’s been a year since a reality TV show actor and four-time bankrupt real estate mogul managed to convince enough voters in all the right states to give him the keys to the White House. He promised to make America great again. But, with the lowest approval rating of any president in more than seventy years, ‘great’ is not a word often used to describe what Trump has done to America.

Despite touting himself as the greatest deal-maker of all time, Trump hasn’t made any significant ones on behalf of the people he was elected to serve. In reality, on many campaign issues, he’s done the opposite.

Preserve and protect Medicare and Social Security? Nope. Standing up for the working class? Not if you’ve seen the GOP tax plan. And what about all that talk on the campaign trail about rebuilding America’s crumbling infrastructure? That’s over.

From CNN,

President Donald Trump has ended plans for an Advisory Council on Infrastructure… The move comes a day after Trump disbanded two other councils — the Manufacturing Council and the Strategy & Policy Forum — after business leaders, CEOs, and union leaders began fleeing the groups in response to the President blaming “both sides” for violence in Charlottesville, Virginia.

On the other hand, if you’ve been losing sleep over how corporate America has been ‘suffering’ because they haven’t been allowed to poison your drinking water, wipe out endangered species, and tear up our national parks with oil rigs more likely to explode, and copper mining pollution that threatens to destroy entire fishing industries, then you’re in luck. That is Trump’s version of ‘great’ for the Wall Street swamp-dwellers; he also ‘promised’ to drain from Washington.

Then there’s the Trump-Russia probe, Trump tweets that could start a nuclear war with North Korea, suggesting that neo-Nazi’s are ‘very fine people,’ and calling America’s free press the ‘enemy‘ of the people. And let’s not forget all the outright lying.

Some people might think what Trump has done to this country is ‘great.’ For the rest of us, this self-serving sham of an embarrassing presidency can’t end soon enough.
