Leading up to the 2016 election you repeatedly claimed that only you can fix the problems in this nation. It is now 2020 and we are at the end of your term, in the middle of a pandemic, 14,000+ people have died, many more are sick...
... millions of Americans are out of work, businesses have shuttered, and our economy is nearing complete collapse.
The republicans that support you assured us in 2017 that you would "pivot to presidential" after your immature, repugnant campaign and we the people waited...
... you have FAILED at every opportunity to lead this nation choosing instead to focus on your own personal gain, feeding your insanely insecure and fragile ego all at the expense of this nation and her people.
During the #COVID_19 pandemic, when we are all in #Isolation & #Quarantine it’s important than ever to fight loneliness. You can help by writing a letter(s) to those in nursing homes, assisted living facilities, hospices & senior centers.
In 2016 Bernie Sanders ran for president, an Independent running as a Democrat.
Bernie set about selling us all on a dream. Asking us to "Feel the Bern" and promising a "Future to Believe In."
In 2019 announced his Second run for President. This time around, Bernie is saying it's no longer about him, but about us. "Not Me. Us." is the new slogan, but that is the most significant change he has made since 2016.
Bernie is selling the same dream.
Free Jobs Program.
Free Family Leave.
In 2016 it was estimated that this FREE dream would cost Americans an estimated $18,000,000,000,000 (THAT IS $18 TRILLION)!
If Trump's recent actions have not caused enough concern, here's how his policies are hurting WISCONSIN...
Trump's improvised and failing trade policies have real-life consequences for Wisconsin. Yet Trump doesn’t seem to care much about the fate of Wisconsin farmers, manufacturers, and laborers insisting he is doing a great job as president.
THREAD: @realDonaldTrump has repeatedly interfered with the will of the American People and with our elections. He is effectively stealing the voice of the people he claims to represent and destroying the country he professes to love.
Currently, the US President, Secretary of State, and Attorney General, aided by the @HouseGOP & @SenateGOP, private citizens, and foreign countries are working to discredit US intel agencies for personal & political gain and to interfere with the 2020 election.
Trump with FULL knowledge of Russian interference in our last elections has failed to secure our future elections. He has actively encouraged and courted other foreign countries to also interfere denying the American people a free and fair election.
You, sir, took an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States of America and to bear allegiance to the same. In that oath, the name TRUMP and the title "president" were NOT mentioned.
In your defense of Trump regarding the whistleblower complaint, you claim“hearsay” and question the validity of the claims. Yet, if you read over the complaint form you will see it can include information from others believed to be true and correct.
Last Friday night as the world was lighting candles, I lit one too and put it in my yard. While doing so, I was encouraged to see that there were a few other candles in a dominantly Trump neighborhood where I had expected to see NO CANDLES and have NO support.
I assumed that the neighbor, Pete, a Trump would harass and ridicule me again for my little candle. I was prepared for that and more likely than not for the disappearance of my candle.
Since before Trump took office Pete and I have gone round and round. Signs have disappeared from my yard and I have been unable to step outside without some version of Trump rhetoric being spewed out for all to hear.
On the 4th of July, we celebrate the birth of a nation, brought about by the bold act of colonists challenging the tyrannical rule of the King, the ruler of the worlds greatest power at the time, and creating a government based on freedom and self-rule. WITH A DEMOCRACY!
Under Trump, there is a return of tyranny. Freedoms, granted by the constitution, protected & guided by the laws of this nation are being trampled on by a man appointed not by the people of America but by the interference of a hostile nation & the support of the Republican party.
In 1776, the founding father's of this nation, American colonists signed the Declaration of Independence, which clearly states the principles on which our government, and our identity as Americans, are based.
Trump on January 20, 2017, said, "Together, we will determine the course of America and the world for years to come."
What followed that has been two years of Trump's lies to the American people and his failure to hear their voices raised in protest.
After a campaign full of lies and empty promises to the American people, Trump began an unrelenting attack on our constitution and our established laws. He claimed he would be "transferring power from Washington, D.C. and giving it back to you, the American People."
Yet the voice of the America MAJORITY has called out repeatedly the actions Trump has taken since he entered the office. The day after he took office millions of American women and men poured into the streets in protest.
Located at The Ceremonial Entrance to Arlington National Cemetery in our nation’s capital stands The Women In Military Service For America Memorial. The memorial honors all women who have defended America throughout history.
Today, #wehonor of our soldiers, Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, and Coast Guard members, who willingly served this country – remember these women – who made the ultimate sacrifice for this nation, because they loved this country, and they were compelled to keep us free.”
Navy Chief Cryptologic Technician, Shannon Kent -35, of Pine Plains, New York, died Jan. 16, 2019, in a suicide bomb attack in Manbij, Syria.
She was assigned to Cryptologic Warfare Activity 66, based out of Fort Meade, Maryland.
Highly restrictive abortion laws are not associated with lower abortion rates! Whether legal or prohibited the number of abortions taking place remains relatively unchanged. Highly restrictive abortion laws simply prevent SAFE abortions.
In countries where abortion is completely banned or permitted only to save the woman’s life or preserve her physical health, only 1 in 4 abortions were safe; whereas, in countries where abortion is legal on broader grounds, nearly 9 in 10 abortions were done safely.
Trump and his MAGA followers like to call themselves "patriots" but in fact, this "president" and his followers do not love the United States of America, instead, they love their distorted and hateful vision of what they think it should be.
In Trump's America, there is no American Dream, the ideal by which equality of opportunity is available to ALL Americans, allowing the highest aspirations and goals to be achieved. MAGA's vision includes only White Conservative Christians full of hate, anger, fear, and ugliness.
Trump fuels his base, feeding their fears, legitimizing their distortions of what it means to be American. He disparages Syrians, Muslims, Immigrants, People of Color, Women, The LQBTQ community, & incites violence against them. The GOP enable and encourage him on this mission.
I was raised by an amazing career military man who moved his family from one country to another, allowing me to experience the world but instilling in me a love for America. I think of how his heart would break to see what Donald Trump has done to our country.
All my life I was repeatedly told that we do not speak badly about the President. "We may not like the man, but we always respect the office". My father died never knowing the horror of Donald Trump as "President" or the decimation of the office. I DO know and I cannot be SILENT!
Trump grew up in Queens, Jamacia Estates a neighborhood that was built by his father. Jamaica Estates of the 1950s as "an exclusive and nearly all-white place, resistant to outsiders and largely impenetrable to minorities." As Described by Jason Horowitz of the New York Times
The Trump Justice Department declared, only harms that constitute a felony or misdemeanor crime may be called #domesticviolence. The isolation, financial control, emotional attacks, and verbal assaults are no longer considered domestic violence.
I am a survivor of #domesticviolence and long before the horror of the physical abuse that would constitute a “felony or misdemeanor” came the systematic destruction of my ability to be a free and functioning individual.
