Not everybody will agree with me on this. Forty percent of you voted for Donald Trump because of promises he made on the campaign trail. Apparently you all thought it was a good thing. Now all I see is the democracy slipping away.
Lets start at the beginning. Lets look at the lying. Today after the swearing in he is still pushing the non fact that He lost the popular vote because of all the illegal votes. I worked the poles for many years and illegal voting just doesn’t happen. The fact is he lost the popular vote by 3million more votes for Hillary and another 4 million votes for the other candidates. Basically he stole the election with one of the lowest Electoral College votes in history, If you didn’t know the Electoral College was created to placate the slave states.
Now lets look at Inauguration Day. Again he stretched the truth about this. The estimate for the attendance which anyone could see was about two hundred thousand. The stands along the parade route were practically empty. The Metro confirmed these numbers saying that usage of the Metro was below that of a normal work week.
On Saturday Sean Spicer Trumps press Secretary held his first press conference and reported that there were at least on million people at the event and went on to chastise the press for false reporting. The next morning Kelleyanne Conway went on Meet the Press and said that what Spicer said were “alternate facts”. Then that same day Trump spoke to the CIA and repeated the one million plus figure and again blamed the press.
So that is just a little bit of who Donald Trump is. I see nothing in his actions that indicate that he is working for his base. I will address other issues, such as the ACA, the raping of the EPA. It does not look good for this country.
