Why we oppose Donald Trump and don’t tell us to get over it
Voters rejoice or protest after almost all presidential elections not just in the USA but around the world. Eventually, voters settle down and accept the majority’s choice. The 2016 US presidential election is a vast aberration from previous elections because of Donald J. Trump. Is it because he’s not a seasoned politician? Of course it is not. Ronald Reagan, a former actor, and Dwight Eisenhower, a decorated general, weren’t career politicians either and they were beloved presidents. Trump, on the other hand, is a self-centered, egotistical blowhard with a history of bankrupt businesses and aggrieved clients who filed dozens of lawsuits against him. He’s also a womanizer with a history of making gross, filthy and disgusting statements about women. He insulted Muslims, Mexicans, immigrants, Jews, gays, disabled people, and yes the Pope. Now there’s strong evidence from the intelligence community (FBI and CIA) that Russia engaged in dirty tricks to see that Trump won the election. Donald Trump by the way is a good friend of Russian president Vladimir Putin. Although it cannot be absolutely proven that Russia interfered with voting results (although such proof may later surface), we’re stuck with Donald Trump and his ultra conservative, hugely wealthy, and nearly all male White team. He seems to have forgotten his pledge to work for all the American people, a diverse culture of White, Black, Asian, Latino, Native American, Pacific Islanders and mixed races. The diversity spreads further among Christians, Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, Sikhs, Hindus, atheists and others. Trump’s cabinet in no way reflects the make-up of the true America. It represents those he surrounds himself with who are White wealthy conservative men. Donald Trump has an appalling lack of humility, a disgraceful regard for the poor, and utter contempt for immigrants especially those of Latino and Muslim heritage. He has shamed Jews and disabled people with tasteless jokes that only a crude or totally insensitive rube would have the gall to say in public. He bragged during the campaign trail that only he could fix the USA. We need real solutions to our problems not Donald Trump’s empty promises to make America great again. What kind of narcissistic behavior is this? We already are a great nation. Trump just never noticed. I’m tired of being lambasted by Trump. I hope you are too. We are not a nation of criminals, thieves and unemployed beggars waiting for the Donald to save us. If he came down to Earth, took a heavy dose of humility and shed his two ton ego he just might accomplish something worthwhile as other presidents have, both Democrat and Republican. Will that happen? I doubt it. I suspect we’re in for a rough ride with an inept cabinet making poorly thought out decisions about housing, health care, transportation, national parks, energy, banking and the overall economy. He already started off by wanting to squash the National Endowment for the Arts, which to me is a terrible decision. We all benefit from the arts. If that’s any indication of what a Trump presidency will be like, brace yourselves for more protests. Trump wants to back out of NATO, scrap other important treaties and make America go it alone. That’s all foolishness. Climate change is real. We need our allies. They need us. Plan to put back on those walking shoes and get out and march. March for our lives. March for our sanity. March for our country. March for peace. March against nuclear proliferation. March to save ourselves from the insanity of a Trump administration because he has no idea how to run a successful business and he has no idea how to run the USA. If he was such a successful business man why have thousands of lawsuits been filed against him? If he had any idea of how to be president, millions of people would not be out in the street protesting against him in the USA and around the world. That has never happened before and by the grace of Allah it never will. If you are not registered to vote, please make sure you do. Donald Trump must be a one term president for the sake of ourselves, our families, our friends and our children.
