There’s now a fine line between Democrats, Republicans and Trump supporters. Party ties have always caused issues in the White House, but for Democrats and Republicans to agree Donald Trump is not the man they want representing America, that speaks volumes for the majority populace.
Very few can deny that Trump has underrepresented the U.S. in several ways. Not even his own party members will support him. The late Sen. John McCain was a primary voice of reason for the Republican party against Trump’s campaign and presidential acts. Other every-day Republicans can agree he is not the president they wanted when they voted to elect him in office. Most voters expected better.
Donald Trump is not a good president, and arguably, he’s not a good person. He has made personal strides to actively withdraw from civil rights through fear mongering rhetoric and refuses to take responsibility for his problematic behavior. Trump has consistently and constantly shown that he is not qualified to perform the outstanding and dignified duties required as the President of the United States.
He has shown a misunderstanding of the Iran Deal; he refuses to abandon his business during the presidency by handing it off to his son; he refuses to accept the truth of global warming and has pulled us out of the Paris Agreement; and he has hired and fired people based on personal interest rather than professional worth.
And that is not getting into the long list of scandals he and his administration have undergone.
Trump has, however, done something remarkable. He has caused members of both parties to agree on something: His impeachment.
With the Johnson City Trump-Blackburn rally coming up, Democrats, Republicans and Trump supporters will be present. Donald Trump has less to do with political affiliations and more so to do with professionalism and basic ethics.
Both parties have issues with the man, not to say this is the first time a president has caused controversy in the White House, but with such a distinct line drawn between Republicans and Trump supporters, there’s almost a question of how he made it into office and what he can do that the majority of the American public can agree with? After all, he’s supposed to be the elected man of the people.
It is my firm belief that very few people, especially politicians on both sides, actually want Trump to be the president. So what causes others to support him, and are his few policies worth supporting if it means supporting a man against everything America stands for?
