Why are Americans making a hue and cry against Mr. Donald Trump
Mr. Donald Trump has been elected as the President of U.S by peoples mandate. No doubt there will certainly be an opposition which reflects the beauty of Democracy. The opposition will debate and discuss on various policies put forth by the Government. It should reflect and place the views of the people. Instead of this if it adopts taking themselves on to the roads like uneducated this may prove fatal for the survival of Democracy. Mr. Donald has been doing what he has promised to the people of U.S at the time of Elections. What is wrong with his policies?
He wasn't elected by the people's mandate. He didn't win the popular vote. Only 26% of the people eligible to vote cast their votes for him. That means 74% of Americans either voted for someone else, or didn't vote for anyone.
In general, the policies Trump has put forth favor corporations and the wealthy, rather than the shrinking middle class, or the poor. We talk a lot in this country about the 1% vs. the 99%: that 1% of the people own the majority of the wealth, and have more influence over our government, than the remaining 99%. Trump is doing things like cutting taxes on the wealthy, removing regulations covering clean air, water and land, downsizing national parks to enable drilling and mining. These things don't benefit the majority of Americans.
Also, as a person, his behavior is loathsome. He's vulgar, and uneducated about things like diplomacy and international relations. He lies constantly, and has a huge ego. He's been accused of sexual assault and sexual harassment by over a dozen women. Basically, he's an uncouth sexist pig.
I can't wait until he's either indicted, or voted out of office. I pity whoever comes after him, because they'll have a huge mess to clean up.
You have asked a very good question.
The left is conflicted with two diametric mantras. First they claim that the Russians influenced our presidential election in 2016, they also contend that Trump lost the popular vote. How can both be true?
The criteria for winning the presidency has never been the popular since the creation of the Electoral College. Now there are some problems with this college because of the all or nothing votes of the states. This worked in favor more for Hillary than it did Trump.
Hillary won 105 Electoral Votes with just three states NY, IL and CA. Trump won the Electoral College because he won over 90% of all the counties in the US. That is the reason that the popular vote is not the deciding factor for the presidency.
The left talks about the 3 million more votes that Hillary received, and guess what they can all be found in CA. Mystery solved. Should Hillary have become president because the forever left state of CA gave Hillary 7 million votes and Trump 4 million votes?
Then Hillary also got the entire 55 Electoral College votes. Fortunately, the rest of the country didn't agree with the core states of the left, NY, CA and Il.
Hillary lost the election because she didn't have a platform, nor did she do any kind of real campaigning, especially in 2016. Trump out campaigned her and he had a platform. One that as you notes he is actually working on and accomplishing. Hillary only had Hate Trump, Don't vote for Trump.
The wealthy 1% is the confluence of both parties being run by the rich. While the left created the Income Tax both parties have contributed to the Internal Revenue Code that actually is the source of the wealth disparity in the US. Again, it is the product of both parties.
Neither party has given the wage earner any real deductions in the Internal Revenue Code, the few that existed were removed by the 1986 Tax Reform Act under Reagan.
Wage earners pay FICA & are stuck with SS Ponzi scheme. Bill Gates&the rest of the billionaires are not wage earners, they don't pay more than Capital Gains Tax, if they pay taxes at all. Many Billionaires doubled their billions >2008, how many wage earners did that.
Trump is everything not the pro politicians, what&how he does things frightens politicians. Remember, Trump was not
in govt until this year. problems that plagued the US were the results of those pro politicians.
The left ignores the presumption of innocence.
BTW it is Trump cleaning up the mess
The Democrats stand for nothing and all they do is whine about president Trump and what he is actually accomplishing. While they do everything to try and prevent his accomplishment. They are losing and they have nothing to offer the US or the voters.
How can both be true? Because they are. - Didn't read the rest , hahahahha
The only logical way it could be true is that the Russians interfered with the election to help Hillary.
I really thought you were smarter than the content or lack of content of what you write.. Guess I was wrong.
I'm glad to hear you have been rescued from a remote desert island after being marooned there for over a year. But I'm afraid that extreme isolation warps the mind.

I am really curious about what other women think; because I've only recently started paying attention to politics since the media is ramping up Trump so much, lately. Before that, I'm sorry... I was not even SORT of paying attention to any other candidate from any party. Hillary is my girl, and she...

So it's the final day. Let's be clear about the choice;Hillary Clinton is deeply unpopular. She may not be a nice person. There are so many negative reports about her, it is difficult to believe there is 'no smoke without fire.' However, some allegations are disproven, and most others are unproven...

Why is everyone but Donald Trump absent from the crisis in Baton Rouge ?The President is playing golf in Martha's Vineyard on yet another vacation - when a disaster of this magnitude strikes, it demands Presidential attention (remember the backlash President Bush received about his response to...

Donald Trump’s bold conservative message seems to be powerful enough, that he is swinging support from voters that don’t normally hold Republican views. Its clear that Trump is in a league of his own because of the increasing growth of supporters and the ever expanding influence he has on the...

Why are Republicans in denial about Donald Trump and his many scams and lies?When someone engages contractors and agrees to pay them and then goes bankrupt on that promise it is basically a lie. When a man has a wife AND a mistress, he is certain to be lying to one, or more likely both of...
