My heart bleeds for America with the incompetence and inadequacy of trump steering them to longterm damage and the destruction of so many areas of life and work. Nancy Pelosi tells us she prays for trump, that his family need to “do something about him” … the trump we witness is pretty well the donald j trump that has always existed. Hopeless and always pretending.
America has been conned bigtime, taken in by a slick soundbite charm of a latter day snake-oil salesman. We should have known fine well that skills honed at a crummy reality tv show would circumvent any need knowledge, ability or experience. This is a so-called President functioning at the level of a ten year old. Making ones-self and ones rattle-bag regime hated around the world is not how civilisation was meant to progress.
Its also commonly thought that trump is deliberately destroying family owned and small / medium farm enterprises so that big corporations can wipe up at bargain basement prices. In fact this IS what will happen viewing current indicators.
And yet still its quite easy to encounter people that consider this buffoon called trump to be ‘the man’. In my opinion people are less educated than they have been since 1940 and trump and his hidden twisted backers play on this fact. Here in the UK bbc radio news (apart from ‘The World Tonight’ at 10pm) has been abysmal, quite pathetic in its refusal to portray trump as the world danger that he is. It seems that the more that media and tv is mass market the more likely it has dumbed down. Its easy here in the UK to find people every day that think trump is self made, trump is successful, trump is the leader that the USA needs etc etc …. this is both quite staggering and alarming in its misinformation.
For instance here is an example of idiocy and how low brow, how unthinking we have become …. https://www.standard.co.uk/showbiz/celebrity-news/exwestlife-star-brian-mcfadden-says-donald-trump-is-exactly-what-britain-needs-a4151921.html
However, the point of this post is the example of one of many fronts where trump is destroying established markets and established trust, ie soybean growers and their export markets namely China. trump will have no idea that crops have to be planted, of the massive outgoings only covered once the payments are received for agricultural produce sown, nurtured, ripened, harvested, stored, transported across the world and delivered, of contracts entered in to and honoured. Note the last word ie ‘honoured’ a very non-trumpian term. trump lives in a self invented bubble where offering 50c in the dollar to desperate creditors is ‘being clever’ !!! ‘The Art of the Deal’… more like ‘The Art of the Screw’! … and as is openly acknowledged trumps ghost-written book is in fact fiction.
Remember, a few billion to the farmers is nothing compared to the trillion handed back to the already super rich and the super slick.
trump is immoral, not to be trusted in any way whatsoever, a dysfunctional chaos, a blight, a pasteboard mask; it is chiefly the thing behind the mask I question and rail against.
