Trump can't break America

No matter how hard he tries, Donald Trump and right-wing American conspirators cannot break the nation and the values on which it stands.

There are right and legal means to get things done and to protect and serve Americans. Trump and Republicans have lost their way.

Here is more evidence that President Trump is unfit and may be much worse than that.

"Appeals court upholds injunction blocking Trump's travel ban
A Richmond, Va.-based federal appeals court on Thursday refused to reinstate President Trump’s ban on nationals from six majority-Muslim countries from entering the U.S., delivering a major blow to the Trump administration. 
The Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals said in its ruling that Trump’s executive order "speaks with vague words of national security, but in context drips with religious intolerance, animus, and discrimination."

It was a mistake to send him on a diplomatic mission because he is offending our trusted allies. There is a right and wrong way in diplomacy, and Trump is unskilled.

  1. There is no doubt that the our government needs to reduce expenses. We must be more prudent. We need to raise revenue and that means higher taxes on wealthy persons. It also means laws that prevent their escaping with money made in America on the backs of We the People.
