Seems pretty odd an crazy that, since we’ve had an certain individual in office an their team there’s been nothing but chaos. Which that’s just my thoughts, yet we as Americans have had to endure a numerous of chains of unfortunate events. I remember being told to vote an felt it wasn’t that serious. I never knew how important it was to vote an how far we’ve come so we all can have the opportunity to vote for change.
But I feel as though not only haven’t I took advantage of the freedom or the opportunity but we all haven’t. Since 2017 we’ve had nothing but chaos. As far as spending billions of dollars to build a wall. I ask myself sometimes is it necessary? I understand some of what this individual in office was trying to do, as far as trying to give more Americans jobs by keeping undocumented immigrants out of state. But my question is, isn’t this the land of the free? Isn’t there a better route about going about it?
When you are keeping kids an family caged an separated, how does that make it better? To me it would seem as if we’ve made the situation worst. We went from building a wall to caging our Latin brothers and sisters, caged an separated from their families. Not to mention having children an parents die in the custody of border control an some us army guards. An Ice. My question would be why? For what?
But it doesn’t stop there, we’ve had took a huge step back with this individual in office or is a coincidence? It wasn’t just George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, incidents that leads me to my next point. Cops profiling In the inner city communities. Numerous of protesting an riots basically an all out race war. Business like, Starbucks calling authorities to escort African American individuals out for simply sitting down in their establishment.
Yes I can give this individual one or two recognitions, giving all LGBT individuals the right to work with no discrimination. Signing off on stimulus an relief budget to help us as American get through this crazy pandemic tim But which brings me to the next point. Why weren’t we prepared? Why didn’t this individual in office take the warning more serious? Maybe we’ve could have beat this crazy COVID-19 Virus. But again maybe it’s an coincidence?
White House, Trump has made at least 15,413 false or misleading claims, according to an analysis from The Washington Post. Virtually all politicians bend the truth, but Trump has excelled in this regard.
The president, for example, has taken full credit for steady economic growth that began under the Obama administration. Trump has also repeatedly and wrongly claimed that he’s fostered the “greatest economy” in US history.
Trump’s response to a deadly neo-Nazi rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, remains one of the most controversial moments in his presidency.
It was emblematic of Trump’s struggle to bring the country together after tragedies, and more generally. His response also typified his controversial record on race relations and white supremacy.
Trump blamed “many sides” for the violence at the rally, which resulted in the death of a counterprotester, Heather Heyer. He later said there were “very fine people on both sides.”
The president was excoriated by Republicans and Democrats alike over his response and his failure to offer a swift and forceful condemnation of white supremacist violence.
GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, often one of Trump’s fiercest defenders in Congress, at the time said the president’s words were “dividing Americans, not healing them.”
“President Trump took a step backward by again suggesting there is moral equivalency between the white supremacist, neo-Nazis and KKK members,” Graham added.
- Confidence in US leadership declined significantly between 2016 and 2017, according to a new report from the Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP).
- The report found people on average now have more confidence in Chinese leadership than in US leadership.
- Steve Killelea, the founder and executive chairman of IEP, told Insider that global confidence in US leadership experienced a “precipitous drop” after Trump’s election.
- Killelea pointed to the “poor press” Trump has received internationally, while noting that global confidence in the US was much higher under former President Barack Obama.
- Global confidence in US leadership fell 11.2 percentage points from 2016 to 2017, according to the report
The president’s tendency to push important allies away and isolate the US, including by pulling out of landmark international agreements like the Paris climate accord, has had a palpable impact.
According to a recent YouGov survey reported by Deutsche Welle (DW), for example, found 41% of Germans view Trump as more dangerous than North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, Russian President Vladimir Putin, Chinese President Xi Jinping, and Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei
